Hello! I am Jes.. I am so grateful that you are considering going on a photographic adventure with me! I think that the connection between client and photographer is a truly important part of choosing who will document you and your lifes events. So I’d like you to get to know a little about me.
I have been a part of mod4 since 2003, when it was founded. It has been a journey of ups and downs, but here I am, still loving every minute of it. I enjoy doing my best to interject my personality and style into my business and photographs. I find that I tend to attract clients who are similar to me – modern, quirky and looking for something unique.
There’s no greater honor, for me, than to be able to document a couple’s most important day – their wedding. I have such respect and love for all that weddings are and understand how very important my job as a photographer is. My passion for weddings runs deep. I am constantly admiring beautiful gowns, studying new decor trends and eyeing amazingly delicious looking cakes! My Pinterest has a Wedding Board full of things that I love to inspire my clients (And who knows? Maybe even use at MY wedding one day!). I am not a girly girl – I have recently become kind of addicted to dresses though (my mom is SHOCKED!) – but weddings are one of the “girly” things that I just get. I get why dresses are so expensive, I get why you put 10 hours of work into choosing colors, I get why the font on your invite HAS to be absolutely perfect. I just get it. Weddings are and always will be in my blood and my heart and you’ll see that reflected in my work.
After 9 years as a Photographer I still get excited with each booking. I know that we are going to have a blast during your session- laughing and getting to one another. I get so excited to create unique images for each of my clients so that they can show off their family, their wedding, their pooch, their life to everyone they know. I am about 75% goof. I have no qualms about making ridiculous noises or singing “opera” to get dogs ears to perk up, doing silly dances to get that toddler laughing at me or joining with groomsmen when they tell dirty jokes. I guess my embarrassment threshold is pretty high and I have no problem doing what it takes to get the best shot possible!
In the last 2 years a lot has changed for me. Because of it, I have become more daring. I have opened my eyes to new and different possibilities. I am stronger. I have become a born again romantic. I have love in my life now that I have never experienced before, and because of this, documenting weddings and family relationships have taken on an even larger meaning to me.
Here are some other random facts that I think you should know about me:
I have two dogs: Douglas – a pit bull/dalmatian who is the most handsome ever (yet allergic to almost everything the world has to offer), and Daisy – a shepherd mix of substandard intelligence with killer eyebrows. I also have an incredibly beautiful, yet crazy cat, Moose.
These 3 beings are my world. I would do just about anything for them.
I absolutely love and adore: ~ pooches ~pasta ~ sweaters ~ etsy ~ Anthropologie ~ crafts ~ dining out ~Regina Spektor ~ Pinterest ~ dresses ~ glasses ~ smoothies ~ modern architecture ~ baking ~ boutique hotels ~ red hair ~ coats + jackets ~ boys in suits ~ rap & hip hop ~ bright colors ~ cupcakes ~ raspberries ~ stripes ~ trying to golf ~ being a vegetarian ~ Sanpellegrino Limonata ~ Kanye West Tweets ~
I love making new friends and am so proud that most of my very best friends are past clients.I am an open book and would love to chat with you.
Yours in friendship,
