Jessica is amazing! I am from Iowa and did all my wedding planning for our Florida wedding online and on the phone. Jessica made everything SOOO easy to plan regarding the photography. After talking with her the first time, I knew she would be awesome to work with. Her website and facebook page were super helpful to give me a feel of her gorgeous style of photography! On the wedding day, she was relaxed and professional throughout the entire time she was with us. She took some of the most amazing pictures I have ever been in. The pictures are GORGEOUS and really captured our day :) She made me and my husband so comfortable throughout the shoot as well and listened to any ideas we wanted to contribute. I would highly recommend her to everyone!

Choosing Jessica as our photographer was one of the absolute best decisions we made during our wedding planning. From the moment we stepped foot in her home for our first meeting to the last hug goodnight on our wedding day, she has been a blessing to my husband and I! We contacted Jessica initially because of her photography style – her use of natural light and ability to truly capture the unique personalities of each of her couples are second to none. But we ended up selecting Jessica as our wedding photographer because of the way she made us comfortable and listened to our ideas.

Being professionally photographed definitely did not come naturally to us and Jessica helped us through every step of our engagement and wedding photos, making us comfortable and, more importantly, laugh at ourselves! Our wedding photos turned out amazing. Jessica and her second photographer, Bara, captured every detail of our venue, quiet moments while my husband and I were alone, crazy moments on the dance floor and everything in between. Our friends and family (and even complete strangers!) absolutely gushed over our wedding photos, saying they belonged in a magazine. She made us feel beautiful and so very special. If you are considering Jessica for your engagement, boudoir session or wedding, look no further!

My husband and I got married in gorgeous Hale, Michigan. We found out about Jessica through one of our friends (she shot her wedding) and fell in love with the style of her photography. Her ability to capture not only the moment, but also the mood, sets her apart from othe photographers. She has an excellent use of natural light, making it feel warm and intimate. Her calm, yet excited personality helped bring out the best of us, especially my husband who is not a fan of being in front of the camera. We also had the pleasure of having her assistant. It was very clear they worked well with one another, making our special day stress-free with the photography.

Jessica is THE best!!! She was the first vendor we booked...even before the venue - that's how much we knew we wanted her to capture our special day. Jessica not only has one of the most creative eyes for photography, but she is just such a caring, warm person and a pleasure to work with. My husband and I are not very comfortable in front of the camera and Jessica made it so easy to be ourselves and have fun...which captured the best pictures. On our wedding day it was POURING rain; we had to go with our backup plan to move all of our events inside the venue. There was not a lot of space to work with inside but Jessica was unbelievable. She captured the most amazing pictures from different angles and gave us so many different options/looks with the limited space she had to work with. We are in LOVE will all of our pictures and we cannot stop looking through them. Thank you so much for capturing the memories of the best day in our lives, Jessica. We are so grateful!

Jessica was just so pleasant to work with, had cute ideas and made the wedding fun. She is so enthusiastic about weddings and that enthusiasm is contagious. I had picked a difficult venue to photograph (aquarium at night) and she provided a great assessment of the challenges the venue presented and what she planned to do to capture the event. My husband and I are incredibly happy with her work.

Jessica shot a few of my friends wedding and engagement pictures. As soon as I saw them, I told my fiance and my mom that she's gonna be the wedding photographer. I didn't even inquire anyone else! Jessica and Bara shot our engagement photos. It was the best investment I have ever made. Having a second shooter was also a MUST for me. I wanted to be able to get every detail of the wedding & that's exactly what i got. And Bara, the second shooter, is another amazing photographer!! They are the best! I don't plan on getting married again, but if I need an excuse for photos I know exactly where to go! Best of the best.

I'm not gonna lie, parting with that money was very difficult for me, but when I saw my pictures I knew it was worth every penny. The photos were absolutely beautiful. It was the best investment I have ever made.

After shooting my sisters wedding and seeing such amazing photos, I knew she had to shoot mine. Her work is amazing and her attention to details is what makes her photos so great. She is so fun to work with and is always extremely professional. I will forever have amazing photos to look at for the rest of my life and I can't thank her enough. There is no one better to shoot your wedding or event than Jessica. Don't bother to look around at photographers....Jessica is your girl:)

What first attracted us to Jessica Charles were the beautiful pictures on her website. But they speak for themselves. The real test for a good vendor is how well you'll be able to work with them when you're nervous and you're having trouble sorting through all the many details that you have bouncing around in your head (and you know, there are always more details than you thought) .

In person Jessica was amazing to work with--before, during, and after the wedding she stayed in touch. The way she updates her website and Facebook page with highlights of recent events that she's photographed kept are energy and enthusiasm growing exponentially as our day approached. She kept posting one amazing shot after another. We would often get home from work and say to each other "Have you seen the latest batch of her photos? She just did another wedding!"

During the wedding, she kept the bride calm. She was excited to help us develop our ideas and make them work. Both her and her staff kept really high spirits throughout the day and were exceptionally professional in their manner. They were genuinely great to have around as people, not just vendors, on our special day.

After the wedding, we got our pictures much faster than we expected. And man, did we get a lot of shots. It's been a few months and I still don't think I've seen them all. And that's certainly not something you'll hear us complaining about.

We really cannot give her higher recommendations. Thanks, Jessica!

In addition to our wedding pictures, we did an engagement shoot with her and all the pictures are absolutely incredible! It was a wonderful experience and I'm very lucky we had Jessica to capture all of the important and fun moments during our big day.

I'm so glad we will have lovely pictures of our wedding day to look back on for the rest of our lives! I would absolutely recommend Jessica to anyone who is looking for a fantastic and reasonable photographer!!!!!
