I am so happy I booked Jessica as our wedding photographer!!!!

She was a absolute pleasure to work with. She is so passionate and incredibly talented. I booked Jessica for your wedding and also did an engagement shoot with her. She was responsive, and flexible and accommodated our schedules, while living between 2 states. Our engagement pictures were awesome, she captured us as a couple and was all for the ideas we had. She incorporated our ideas and made her own suggestions, and it made for so many great pictures its hard to pick a favorite. My husband was all for a picture laying on the beach while a wave washed up on us, and I love that amazing moment she captured.

Fast forward, about 6 months to our wedding day. The entire day is a whirlwind, and everything happens so fast. I'm not sure how she did it, but she managed to capture every moment throughout the day. She captured all the details prior to the wedding, including the set up, us all getting ready, all of family members (which is a large group), and of course priceless moments during our ceremony and reception. There are even some pictures I look at and laugh because I don't even remember that moment. Because of Jessica, we are able to reflect on the best day of our life thus far. I am so grateful for her, and being able to have such a talented photographer capture moments is the best way to relive memories. There are way too many pictures to choose a favorite, but that's not exactly a bad problem to have.

Not hiring Jessica will be something any bride and groom will regret!!!!

Jessica is an amazing photographer! She is willing to help, and although we had a lot of family portraits to take, she made it happen in the time frame allotted. We even have plenty of time to take creative and fun pictures. She has a very creative eye and I know our pictures will turn out beautifully. We had her for 8 hours, but she was flexible to change that to more if need be. Our engagement session was fun and unique. We were able to see the photographs online for about 5 months! Cannot wait to see the wedding photographs. I would recommend her for any event, thank you Jessica!

Looking for a photographer can be overwhelming and fortunately I was referred to Jessica Lewis by both colleagues and friends, and I got the opportunity to meet Jessica Lewis at a Bridal Show. We fell in love with Jessica's work and and style, and were really happy with the shots that she and her assistant captured at our wedding. Would definitely recommend!!!

Absolutely incredible! I first saw Jessica's website and immediately fell in LOVE with her gift for photography! I then emailed her and was able to meet with her at her home to discuss the options for shooting at my wedding. I was on a bit of a budget so I chose one of her associate photographers, who's name is Jenni! I cannot say enough about their work! Jenni made me feel so comfortable and calm on my wedding day and she took BEAUTIFUL pictures! I am not somebody who likes to be in front of the camera... But WOW, she was very creative and really captured each and every moment of the wedding! From the details, to spontaneous moments, to romantics, to the basics. Every picture I've seen thus far is incredible! Also, Jessica Lewis does all of the editing, color work, etc. and which really makes each and every picture POP! They are flawless and I could not be more happy with our decision. I recommend contacting Jessica (or at least take a look at her website) and you will fall in love with her work! www.jessicalewisphoto.com

Jessica took an ordinary photo and turned it into a piece of art! My husband and I have never looked so good!! If you are looking for a creative, organized and professional photographer who will show you shots that you have never seen before, then I highly recommend Jessica! You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I got married in Santa Barbara at a private estate. Leading up to the wedding, Jessica contacted me and let me know that I needed to put together a list of shots that I wanted to make sure were taken the day of the wedding. This was actually the first time that I had even thought about it and was very thankful that she brought it up. It gave me some time to really think about what shots where important to me - definitely something that I didn't want to have to worry about on my wedding day. Once I submitted my shot list, Jessica was quite straight forward with me and made it clear that my shot list was a bit ambitious given the time frame that we had to work with. I really appreciated her advise, because I obviously had some shots with family that I would have hated to have to skip due to time constraints. Jessica's assistance getting the shot list and timing together is a big reason why our wedding day ran smoothly (and, we got all of the shots we wanted!).

Jessica had never been to the private residence where the wedding was held. She and her assistant arrived a half hour early and scoped out the place. When it was time for pictures, Jessica was assertive with things that needed to get done, but still let me do my thing with my bridemaids. I immediately felt comfortable around Jessica. It was obvious that she knew exactly what she was doing, and I basically just did whatever she asked!
We had a large wedding party (seven groomsmen and bridesmaids), and despite everyone being pretty excited to get to cocktail hour, Jessica was able to direct everyone and keep them focused long enough to get some great shots! Her creativity is truly amazing! She put us in unique formations, but never made us feel awkward! I was very excited to see the pictures, and they were better than I could have imagined!!!

Cheers!

Jessica Lewis is an extremely talented photographer with a very natural unique and beautiful style. All of her work is absolutely stunning!! She is very professional and her personality just adds to your very special day. She was able to make me feel at ease on my wedding day and I felt as those one of my best friends was capturing our day. I should also add that she is extrememly organized (i.e., she checked out our location before the wedding day and sent detailed lists to finalize all family pictures etc.) and everything just falls into place on the big day. She was hands down our favorite vendor and we feel so lucky to have found her! xoxo
