Jessie and Joseph helped make our wedding truly unforgettable! First of all, Jessie was so quick to respond to all calls/emails, and so sweet to work with. We had an engagement shoot with her and she really did a great job of capturing our personalities in the photos. On the wedding day, Jessie and her second shooter, Joseph, made sure we got all of the shots we wanted while still staying on schedule. They coordinated with our DJ when we were running a little behind schedule to make sure we got to sneak out of the reception for some golden hour photos, and all of our pictures were beyond gorgeous. Our friends and family have frequently commented that our pictures perfectly captured the day and us. Admittedly, when we booked Jessie my husband thought we were spending too much for photography (even though her rates were competitive for the area), but when we got the pictures back he agreed that she was worth every penny! I can't wait to work with Jessie again!

Jessica Smith was a great photographer. She did my daughter's engagement and wedding photos at our outdoor wedding in Clifton in September. Her pictures of the little things...like the rings, garter etc were as beautiful as the actual wedding party pictures themselves. She and her assistant were able to cover all the angles and the pictures are beautiful. Jessi has a great eye for taking wonderful pictures and capturing the many emotions of the day. I would highly recommend her for any event you may have...she was very professional, on time and a joy to be around.

Jessie is a wonderful photographer. She makes you feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera. For someone who is not very confident in her appearance, Jessie brought out my inner beauty as well as capture the beauty of my wedding day. She has a plan and is able to organize large groups of people to focus and have fun while posing for group shots. She not only is very professional, she also is a great friend. I am honored that she was there to capture one of the happiest days of my life. She has a gift for not only freezing your memories of film but also documenting life as it happens moment to moment. I love her work, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to have someone capture the moments they don't want to forget!

I LOVE Jessie. She was the most amazing photographer ever! I went to a wedding the day I met my now husband where she was the photographer. I swear I never knew my friend even had a photographer there! I don't know how she did it but she blended in with all of the guests and somehow all of these amazing pictures were taken without anyone even knowing pictures were being taken. I knew I wanted to use her when I got engaged. My husband and I did an engagement session with her and came out with beautiful pictures that everyone comments on. We have seen a few of our wedding pics so far and are amazed! They are gorgeous!!! We can't wait to see the rest of them! Jessie is so great at what she does and is so sweet and genuine as well. She treated us more than just a "job" and really got to know us. It was like she knew exactly what we wanted! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! We'll be using her again:)

Jessie is AMAZING!!! I do minimal photography on the side so I had a huge expectation for a photographer for my wedding since it was the #2 item on my priority-wedding list (#1 is the venue). I searched and searched till I found Jessie and instantly fell in love with her work. I check her blog daily and continuously amazed. As a photographer to another, "She has the eye".

She did an incredible job during our "Apple Orchid" Engagement Session:

And she blew that out of the water with our wedding photos: http://www.jessicasmithphotography.com/blog/2011/05/27/brandon-and-megan-whitehall-manor-wedding/

Thank you for capturing the true essence and beauty of the love that surrounded our wedding day. You are the best and it shows in your work.

Highly, HIGHLY recommend!

Every part of working with Jessie was amazing. She's a fantastic photographer and she even had some teaser pics up less than a week after the wedding that I was able to view while I was on my honeymoon. She did everything I asked for and a whole lot more. She was always on time and very professional and she was also a blast to shoot with. She's reasonably priced and her quality is just fabulous. I'd use her again in a heartbeat.
