hey there! i’m jessica, and i’m an international documentary wedding photographer. there are precise moments of my life that i’d give anything to have a picture of. to me, photography is a way to remember. it’s not about the posed or contrived; but the stories inside the image. i believe everyone has a story and i am passionate about preserving that.

i recently became engaged to my childhood penpal/long-distance boyfriend eric, who i simply could not possibly admire and adore more. after spending 28 years of my life in california, i am now bi-coastal, splitting my time between jacksonville, florida and sacramento, california.

photography is an extension of my heart and mind and i couldn’t imagine a life without my camera. i feel lucky to be invited to document weddings all over the world; including hawaii, italy, greece, cabo san lucas, mazatlan, the virgin islands, st. lucia, atlanta, georgia, sacramento, california, san francisco, california, laguna beach, california, jacksonville, florida, miami, florida, orlando, florida, st. augustine, florida, chicago, and more!

bored by mediocrity, i strive to create images that are interesting, that demonstrate life organically, beautifully, creatively and above all – genuinely. i encourage you to get in touch! i’d love the opportunity to hear more about your story! Read less

Jessica is amazing!!!! I have only seen one absolutely incredible sneak peek from my day, but I had to review her professionalism. She stuck to our timeline, moved things and people along quickly, took charge in a professional way and was committed to making my day run smoothly. I can't wait to see the rest of my pictures, but I couldn't wait to write about how awesome she is!

Jessica is amazing. Her quality, expertise, and attention to detail is something that every bride needs when looking for a photographer. Jessica captures your wedding day and most important- your memories. She is the most amazing photographer. I've dealt with so many different photographers over the years and Jessica uses the best equipment, lenses and her assistant Katie was perfect. I fell in love with Jessica's work from ONE picture I saw of hers. That's all it took. I was hooked. I was so Lucky she was my photographer and if you get a chance to see her photos do look-you will be amazed! She's traveled the world capturing weddings!! Photos are the most important part of your day. She goes above and beyond. She gets things back so quickly! I've cried looking at my photos. And I'm ordering my picture with myself and Jess!

Jessica is the absolute best! We love every photo!!! She captured our precious moments candidly yet with creativity and beauty. I love that we got a USB drive with all our photos and I truthfully cannot pick one photo that I love best - there are so many beautiful photos!!!

She worked with us by phone, email and in person, responding promptly to questions. She was both warm and friendly while also remaining focused and professional.

Absolutely worth every penny! Of all the things I spent money for on my wedding, Stout Photography was the most worth my money. I would recommend her highly to engaged couples if you want truly artistic photos and memories to cherish forever!!!

Jessica katie were AHHHMAAAAZING! I can't say enough about them. We were married in Mexico, so our pictures were very important to us as many of the people we invited were not able to attend and we wanted to have a way to share the experience with them.

Jessica and Katie were so artistic and captured every special moment. Everyone who sees our pictures are in awe of the beauty she captured in the landscapes and lighting. She was so flexible with everything and put my mind at ease.

For one of the most important parts of the wedding for us, we could not have been happier.

Jessica Stout is the most talented individual I have ever met! Her eye for the perfect photo opportunities is amazing! She is extremely creative and her professionalism is off the charts! We are just seeing our photos for the first time and it is truly like looking at a fairy tale that I was part of off/ I have been married before and I had a photographer that had 20+ years and while he was great the emotion that comes to the surface when I look at the photographs from Stout Photography is awe inspiring and leaves me speechless with tears streaming down my face. If you knew me, you would already know I am NEVER speechless! =) Jessica's work is priceless! I will never trust another photographer with any photo sessions I need in the future! If I cannot get Stout Photography I will postpone until I can!

We are just seeing our photos for the first time and it is truly like looking at a fairy tale that I was part of off/ I have been married before and I had a photographer that had 20+ years and while he was great the emotion that comes to the surface when I look at the photographs from Stout Photography is awe inspiring and leaves me speechless with tears streaming down my face. If you knew me, you would already know I am NEVER speechless! =) Jessica's work is priceless! I will never trust another photographer with any photo sessions I need in the future! If I cannot get Stout Photography I will postpone until I can! Read less

Just a few months before our wedding date we decided to ditch our photographer because we weren't satisfied. Somehow we stumbled upon Jessica Stout photography and she miraculously happened to have our wedding date available. It was the most impulsive yet rewarding decision we made and the best money we spent! Jessica is not only the sweetest person ever but she captures the most amazing photos! It's as if she freezes time in her pictures and the images take you right back to that moment! Considering the photos are the only part of the wedding that lasts forever we are so blessed that we have Jessica's photos to look at for the rest of our lives :)

Jessica (and Katie) were an absolute joy to work with at our wedding! Not only did they deliver incredible photos, but they were professional, fun, and managed to get our crazy families in line. The photos turned out beautifully (we did both engagement and wedding photos) and pretty much everyone I know who is getting married has asked for Jess's contact information. Jess is also FAST -- I couldn't believe her quick turnaround time. I couldn't recommend Jess more highly -- she's simply the best.

After reviewing her impressive portfolio, we hired Jessica Stout to shoot our engagement and wedding photos. It was one of the best decisions we made for our July 2013 wedding!

Jessica is extremely professional. She handles large wedding parties like a breeze! She is prompt, easy to get ahold of, and happy to answer any questions right away despite how busy and popular she is. She shows up on time, prepared, with a bright smile on her face. She takes great pride in her business and work. Everything she does is well thought-out and her decisions show she is very experienced. Her photos speak for themselves - she knows what she's doing and I trust her 100%!

Before our engagement photo session, I told Jessica we didn't want mushy, serious photos since it would not feel like us. It would feel posed and look awkward to anyone who knows us. We laugh a lot together and have fun. Jessica listened to me and suggested we go to the Sacramento State Fair.

At the fair, Jessica told us exactly what to do, we felt natural, and the photos came out better than we had ever imagined! She got on rides with us, laid down on the ground as we had a silly string fight above her...anything to get an amazing shot. Jessica's outgoing and positive personality helped us both feel comfortable. I feel like I gained a friend in this whole process!

I found Jessica’s experience with weddings to be so valuable at my own. Her professionalism and comfort with every situation set me at ease throughout the day, allowing me to relax and focus on what was most important on my wedding day! I really liked that she brought along a second photographer, Katie. They make a great team.

I have beautiful wedding photos and do not have a single complaint about Jessica. If you are looking for an experienced, professional, creative, and fun photographer, look no further! I'd highly recommend Jessica to anyone and hope I have the opportunity to hire her again in the future.

Ladies and gentlemen: if you haven't been told or haven't figured this out yet, your wedding day is going to be the most important, fun, loving, and FAST day of your life. You spend months and months planning everything down to the last detail and I got news for ya - you'll hardly notice a thing on your big day! You will be so enveloped in love, fun, family and friends that you will barely notice the lighting, the cake, or even how you look in your dress.

This is why I CANNOT express to you enough how important having a great photographer is. All those moments that normally would fly by without a passing thought will be forever stopped in time because of Jessica. Do not get me wrong, I realized my wedding day was beautiful and perfect but it was not until I got my photos from Jess that I realized how truly beautiful, moving, and seriously earth shattering certain moments of my day were. That moment my grandfather saw me, the way I hugged my sister after her speech, the intimate moment between me and my new husband while we danced with our guests when I thought nobody was watching... I am seriously tearing up right now just thinking of it. I would not have been able to either re-live these moments or see them for the first time without Jess. Not only was she a total pleasure to work with (I consider her a great friend!) but she brings me back to my wedding day every single time I look at my photos.

I realize Jess is not the on the more affordable end for some brides but I highly encourage you to use your budget in a way where you can fit her in. Your photos will be all you have for the rest of your life -- flowers will die, tuxes returned -- but your photos by Jess will put your right back in your gown on the best night of your life. She is worth every penny and more. I cannot imagine my day without her. I love you Jess!! XOXOX

One of the few things I always knew I wanted to splurge on was my photographer. I met with 6 different ones that all shared the same style but I had a specific budget I needed to meet and none of them would work with me. I was referred to Jess by another photographer and instantly she was warm and friendly and easy to communicate with considering I was in Colorado. She worked with me to create a package that worked within my budget and offered a wonderful variety of amazing photos. Her unique ability to capture shots that you could not ever imagine capturing, she could do. Tears strolling down faces, laughter, and lets not forgot about her PHENOMENAL sunset photos. I almost made the mistake of opting out of this and thank GOD she talked me in to it because they were my favorite photos. Besides her talent, she was incredibly professional. She showed up on time, and even somewhat took on bridesmaid roles by making sure I was on time to leave my house! I had our online print review within weeks of our wedding which was a blast to sit and review with my husband. I am so blessed to have found Jess! We are forever grateful for the memories she created for us!

Everything about Jessica Stout Photography is simply phenomenal. From her pre-wedding communication to delivery of the final album, Jess couldn't have done better. Working with her the day of the wedding was so much fun- she kept me laughing and feeling at peace. She was accommodating and respectful when doing boudoir shots, spot-on with the first look, and perfectly positioned during the ceremony. While my now-husband and I loved her portfolio of previous work and knew she'd do an amazing job for us, we couldn't be more thrilled with our album. We flew Jess from CA to the Caribbean and she was not at all demanding about her travel accommodations. Bottom line: Jess is a wonderful person and we can't rave enough about her work.

We first met Jessica at our friends' wedding in Lake Tahoe where she thoroughly impressed us with her tenacity to capture the best possible shot (which included crawling around in the sand and going out into the lake in a kayak). I'll admit that at first Jessica was a bit out of our price range, but after talking to several of our friends, the consensus was that you should never skimp on your wedding photography. I'm so glad we listened to our friends, because Jess ended up being a bargain compared to the dozens of memories she beautifully captured. Jess is very professional but at the same time has a warmth that makes you feel comfortable, as if you have known her for years. At no point did we feel awkward or staged, but rather felt like she was just letting us be ourselves, to the point where we would forget she was there snapping away. We put together a timeline of events a few weeks before the wedding and she remembered it all perfectly. With everything else going on that day, it was so nice to be able to trust her to do what we asked (and do it well) so we could concentrate on enjoying ourselves.

One final note (that hopefully people someday soon will think is silly to mention): This was a same-sex wedding and at no point did we ever feel as if Jess treated us any differently than any of her other couples. All we wanted was someone who would capture the love that day, and she did it better than we ever dreamed. Thank you, Jess!

Allan and I were planning a small, intimate wedding in St. Lucia. As you can imagine, we were running into trouble finding a photographer on the island. I started to look for photographers through Google search and happened upon Fearless Photographers. It was a match made in heaven!

We created our profile, set the scene of our wedding, and waited for responses.
Within 24 hours, the responses started to pour in. We looked through profiles, and contacted a few photographers who we liked.

The profile that stuck out the most to us was Stout Photography. Jess' photographs are incredibly interesting and she plays with light so beautifully. After a phone call with Jess, our decision had been made!

Throughout the entire process (planning, arriving, pre-wedding photography, the main event, and then follow-up) Jess has been a dream. She has an eye for capturing special, candid moments, as well as a rare ability to frame posed photographs in a natural way. The most difficult part of having Jess as a photographer was, without a doubt, narrowing down our selection of photographs for our album; there are just so many beautiful photos! Beyond her talent and artistry, Jess is professional, personable, and fun to be around. She slipped into our wedding events with ease and grace and felt like a natural guest.

Fearless Photography made the process of finding a photographer easy and lifted a huge burden off of our shoulders. Beyond making the selection easier, we felt like Fearless allowed us to find and communicate with photographers we would have never crossed paths with on our own search; it opened up a whole new world of artists and communication!

When we found out that one of Jess' photographs from our wedding won a FP Award, we were thrilled! Our journey with Fearless Photographer and Stout Photography has now come full-circle! This is a well-deserved award for Jess, and we are so proud that it came from our special day.

We have had so many of our friends say that our pictures look like they belong in a bridal magazine! Jess was very attentive and instructed our group pictures very well and in a timely manner. I have heard horror stories from friends that their photographers were rude to the guests/vendors and they spent too much time taking pictures. We can honestly say she has become one of our friends!

Jessica is just plain AWESOME! When a professional photographer who's work you love recommends someone who they would want to shoot their special life event, you should definitely listen. From the very first meeting with Jessica, we knew that she was the perfect fit and choice to capture our wedding. She's very laid back and she makes you feel comfortable, wanting you to just be yourself. She's super creative (just take a look at samples of her work; not to mention she's won numerous awards) and she has great vision and ideas. The best part is, she doesn't shove her own ideas down your throat. She'll make her suggestions and recommendations, but she genuinely wants to know what you want and she listens! We definitely wanted her to have free reign on how she wanted to shoot; we trusted her judgment. Jessica's great to work with. She really made us feel comfortable when we had our engagement sessions, which resulted in even better photos because we could just be ourselves. She provides you with helpful tips to help you prepare for your engagement session and the wedding day. Jessica's prices are probably not the cheapest out there, but she's definitely worth every dollar spent. For what you get in the package(s) together with the kind of service she provides from beginning to end, she's a bargain. One of the things that my wife and I decided upon when we started planning our wedding is to spend more of our money on photography and videography. We wanted to have photos that will paint the picture of what happened that special day, from the vantage point of our photographers, our guests, friends, and family members. We wanted our photos to bring us back to that whirlwind of a day (because it does go by so quickly) and that's what Jessica did for us. Jessica provides top notch service with personal touch from beginning to end. I would recommend Jessica to anyone and everyone every day of the week, and twice on Sundays.

One of the best parts of my wedding experience was working with Jessica. I had heard horror stories from other brides about their pictures and was so glad that she was the opposite. She worked with my budget and on my time frame. I looked great in every shot at my wedding!!(even the candid ones!!) She is Fantastic and so artistic. My pictures where not just typical but amazing. My family still goes on and on about how great the pictures are. Hopefully one day Jess will be taking pictures of my pregnancy, of the birth of my children, and years of family pics!!! I cant thank her enough for making my forever moments look so spectacular.

Jessica Stout is the one of the best choices you can make for your wedding. My husband and I can not stop saying how happy we are with her work, her price, her performance, and her responsiveness. When Jessica told us to do something, we did it and in return got GORGEOUS photos. We loved Jessica so much we flew her and her team out to Mexico with us!

Jessica and her team took her time to research the area the day before. Very smart because the day of is total chaos. She knew exactly where to direct the family, us, and even take a major detour. (It became incredibly windy and we couldn't get any good shots with my hair blowing all over the place. She immediately said, "i know where to go to get you out of this. She then rounded up the entire bridal party and got us to a grassy location behind the hotel where no wind could reach us AND it was gorgeous. I didn't even know about this spot and I'm a repeat visitor, but Jessica did, thanks to her time investigating). This is the kind of dedicated service you're going to get with Jessica and her team. This photographer got into the ocean, along with us, to get the shot. You want her on your wedding team.

Don't be scared either to discuss budget. Jessica is very fair and gracious. We never discounted her and in return she took care of us at each stage. We did our engagement shoot with her, our wedding, and the wedding album.

Simply The Best! Jessica is the best person for the job- I guarantee it! I fell in love with her work after two of my friends used her for their photos. My fiancé was comfortable with whomever I wanted but was nervous about the engagement shoot. The day came and Anthony was sweating! We met her for the first time at the e shoot and fell in love with her within five minutes! She was able to put us at ease and make us feel so comfortable even while lying in the dirt in a white dress! Anthony adored her and instantly relaxed! The engagement photos were the best photos we’ve ever taken! Jessica knows how to really position people to get great photos that are stunning but look natural!
Jessica is super professional!! Every meeting/ email was about what I wanted/needed, my expectations and dreams. She explained what she would need from me and always discussed what I liked and didn’t and instantly made adjustments! The days leading up to my wedding she kept in touch and assured me everything would be perfect! She was so thoughtful and caring. It meant so much to me for her to treat me like a friend and not a customer! I actually cried!
Day of the wedding she arrived and was instantly loved by my family. She won everyone over! When problems arose at our venue Jessica instantly handled the situations! She was able to continue shooting and delegate tasks to others to get what we needed done. I appreciated that so much! Her actions made it possible for me to relax and enjoy my day!
The entire day went so well and the photos were so fun! We love working with her! We have not yet received our photos as the wedding was last week, but we know they will be perfect!
The photos are also undervalued! I would have paid double for the engagement shoot! There are so many we just love! ! We received copies of photos within two weeks! I had multiple ways to contact her and never felt like I was alone or unable to reach her! I wholeheartedly recommend her!

Wow! Where do I begin to even describe the incredibly awesome work that Jessica does? I guess I don't really have to because the proof is in her pictures! I found Jess through her photographing my friend's wedding and knew that when it was my turn I had to have her! In fact, our wedding date revolved around her availability! From our engagement photos to our wedding photos and finally our wedding album, I have some of the most beautiful pictures to document the best year of my life. As people look through our wedding album, they "ooh and ahh" at all the wonderful pictures, but the one resounding comment that stands out to me is that "she captured all the perfect moments of the wedding." I don't think compliments get any better than that. Jess was not only my photographer but quickly became my friend and someone I will continue to have a relationship with. She is professional, kind, understanding and just all around amazing! I would recommend her hands-down to anyone.

Working with Jessica from Stout Photography was a dream!! Her work is exquisite! The shots from our wedding are more beautiful then I could of hoped for. She is extremely professional and reliable, I completely valued her opinions and expertise. She is also extremely kind and understanding, which is so very important for a bride. She obviously loves what she does and I felt she was incredibly invested in doing her very best. The memories she captured of our wedding day are gorgeous and real; seeing them takes me back to the best day of my life. Her style is unlike any other I could find; her pictures reflect more than just a beautiful image, but a vivid memory of the emotion in the moment, the smell in the air, the music. the romantic piece of time and space that you will cherish all of your life. Her work is pure magic and working with her was a wonderful experience. She is absolutely the best there is!

I cannot recommend Jessica higher - we love all of her photos, and she always has a very professional manner. I would ask her to be my photographer again in a heartbeat.

When numerous friends and co-workers HIGHLY recommend a wedding photographer, you know you are working with someone special. Our office had a rash of engagements and many of my co-workers were looking for photographers. I started a search myself when I got engaged but I found myself looking for someone who took photos that were fresh and different. When I came across a co-worker's engagement photos, I immediately asked, "who took these photos?" I was so excited because the photos encapsulated exactly what I was looking for. When we made our first appointment with Jessica, I knew she was THE ONE. Photography is so important, and my fiance and I didn't want the status quo -- we wanted something awesome and fun. We were able to work with Jessica during our engagement shoot and wedding. During the engagement shoot, Jessica knew exactly where she wanted us to capture the best light. The entire afternoon went fluidly and we were able to get the best photos. We got so many compliments on our save the dates -- we had to choose the one card option that had the most photos because we couldn't choose our favorites! There were too many! When it came do our wedding day, Jessica really proved she was the most awesome photographer around. She maneuvered our entire wedding party around Crocker Art museum, looking for interesting shots with great light. She knew what was going to look good in the photos and made us all feel extremely comfortable. And she was not afraid to contort herself to get the best angles! Jessica literally will lie on the floor if she thinks it will help get the perfect photo -- she is THAT DEDICATED. It was so easy to work with her and we couldn't be happier with the wedding photos. The photos were just "us" and that is exactly what we wanted. Jessica really created magic with her camera that day. Thank you Jessica!

Jessica has a great style that is very "documentary/candid" She really wanted to make sure she got a sense of who were were and what we expected. She took photos of us getting ready and I felt totally at ease in some of my weirdest moments (getting my hair teased like the Bride of Frankenstein!). We opted to do the first look and she arranged a beautiful moment with the two of us, just being ourselves. It was amazing to feel so at ease even though we had two cameras shooting us.

She also had the posed family and bridal/groom photos and I was amazed at how easy she made it look. She has the ability to control large groups of people and get things done quickly. We had one groomsman who needed a little more "direction" and she was able to take care of that without making anyone feel awkward!

We just got our sneak peak photos and I was so amazed at how perfect everything was. Our getting ready photos, during the wedding, and couple photos were so perfect and exactly as we hoped. Jessica captured the golden "magic hour" so perfectly and I was so impressed with how much emotion came through the photos. I would use her again in a heartbeat and I only wish I had a reason to do another big photo session. Thanks Jessica for making everything so perfect on our wedding day!

Without a doubt, Jessica is one of the most professional and talented photographers in the Sacramento region. We are extremely pleased with how well she worked with us before, during and after the wedding. Our photos were available for review pretty quickly which allowed our family and us to quickly pic and order the favorites. Initially, we were apprehensive about the cost for the selected wedding & engagement package, given that money is tight. But in the end, we really did get what we paid for. The product she offers was certainly worth what we paid.

Jessica was great from day 1! In our initial meeting, she was able to answer all our questions, show us her portfolio, and was already highly recommended to us. She kept constant communication with us through our whole planning stages. Our engagement photos turned out beautifully. On our wedding day, she was not only professional, but gracious to us, the wedding party, our families, other vendors, and our guests. She gives direction well to capture amazing pictures! She also has a great eye for sunsets, light and color. After our wedding, an appointment was promptly made for our album. The completed album was packaged and delivered in a very timely manner.

I am really impressed with Jessica's professionalism, promptness, and talent!

Jessica's beautiful work caught my eye while I was hunting for the perfect photographer for my wedding. The artistic touch and stunning use of light in her work was unlike anything I'd seen.

Jessica Stout is the most professional, kind, accommodating, and dedicated photographer out there. Her pricing is very competitive in contrast to the outstanding quality of her work. It's so important to find someone that has the bride and groom's needs and wants as their 1st priority, and she made it clear that her gorgeous pictures were only a vehicle for capturing a couple's happiness.

Jessica was a very special part of our wedding's success story, and we have such wonderful memories to admire forever. She became much more than just our photographer; she's now a friend. My husband, Brian, and I HIGHLY recommend Stout Photography and can't wait to have her behind the camera for our future *baby* pictures :)

I've used my wedding pictures for so many different things (Christmas card, photo fram collage, photo books, etc.) because I love them so much. You definately won't be disappointed if you ask Jessica to capture your day.

Hiring Jessica was one of the smartest decisions my husband and I made planning our wedding. We were instantly drawn to her gorgeous photos and unique style, and she didn't disappoint. We quickly learned throughout the multiple sessions we did with her (family photos, engagement session & wedding) that if we just let go and put our full trust in her, amazing photos resulted! Despite her ever growing popularity, she still managed to treat us as if we were one of only a few couples, always remaining easily contacted and responsive. Not only was she a breeze to work with, she also gave us amazing photos that we will treasure for a lifetime. My husband and I, and both of our families, have grown to adore Jessica and we will continue to have her document our life, even in 25 years when our future daughter gets married!

This review is long overdue. We stumbled upon Jessica’s work while searching for wedding venues online. Her photos of a wedding at the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg, CA were breathtaking. We instantly knew that we had found our wedding venue and photographer.

Jessica is an amazing, talented photographer. We can’t say enough wonderful things about her. She has an incredible eye. She is flexible and easy-going. She is extremely cute, sweet and friendly. She is the utmost professional. If you’re looking for non-traditional photos that tell your wedding story, capture those important moments, and look like works of art, then she’s your girl. If you’re looking for the run of the mill, cookie cutter, mom-type photos, then she’s not for you.

Jessica makes the process so easy…from our initial consultation…to setting up our engagement session…to our wedding day…to designing our wedding album. As long as you trust Jessica, your photos will look spectacular. Our friends and family can’t say enough about our engagement and wedding photos. Everyone who sees our photos comments on how gorgeous they are. This is a true testament of Jessica’s stunning work.

We were so excited to see our photos and they turned out amazing! She's awesome! If you hire her, you won't regret it...promise.

I can't say enough good things about Jessica. She was fabulous! We did our engagement shoot with her before the wedding and I couldn't be happier with her work and time she spent with us. She knew the kind of shots she wanted and what looked good and her professionalism and personality made it so much fun! We were able to relax and have a great time which is what you want to be when you are going to get married. :) On the wedding day she was "every where and no where all at the same time" as my grandmother put it. She got every type of shot you would want on your wedding day and I'm so happy that I get to charish those moments noone else would ever see. Her work is amazing and I'm so happy my venue recommended her from the beginning. YOU WLL LOVE HER!! :)

Jessica has the ability to capture the special moments between two people and create a work of art!! Her photos are amazing, and I feel blessed to have them. The way she photographs different expressions, poses, laughter, and all the other emotions is truly a gift.

Jessica has an amazing eye and was able to capture beautiful images and the story behind them -- just check out her website! On the day of our wedding, she was consistently kind and professional with all of my guests, even though it was challenging to organize them for the various combinations of family photos. She got us through it quickly and efficiently! She also has a calmness about her that really carries you through your wedding day. My husband, who is not the most comfortable around cameras, was quickly himself around Jessica which helped us capture great moments. Lastly, the product is amazing! I just received my photo proofs online (very quick turn around) and I've received so many compliments. Jessica is such a sweet and talented photographer; and the business she runs is so organized and honest!

Jessica is the most amazing photographer and I highly recommend her to every bride looking to capture the fleeting beauty of their wedding day. Jessica is incredibly talented and she easily wins you over and puts you at ease with her sweet personality. She is a joy to be around on your wedding day; in fact, I felt like a friend was leaving when it was time for her to go. Every time I look at my wedding photos I get tears in my eyes because it feels so vivid, like I am re-living each moment all over again. All of my friends and family are wowed by her work and impressed by her professionalism. Honestly, I don't even have the words to express how much I love Jessica. I think I could go on and on and still never even accurately express how wonderful and amazing she is. If you want the best pictures you can possibly get to remind you of your special day AND the nicest person you will ever meet, all in one package, then Jessica is the photographer for you! It was the best decision we ever made and I am sure you will feel the same way too!

Jessica and Stout Photography were truly phenomenal! I can't speak highly enough for the sheer talent that she has at capturing the details and emotion of your wedding day. I researched a lot of photographers and saw that many had the ability to take amazing pictures but Stout/Jessica go beyond just pictures. She truly has what can only be called a "gift" for being able to capture the essence of the day which is so hard in still shots. I am thrilled with my pictures and how she was able to capture such candid emotion and joy and truly make me feel as though I can relive the day through my images.
You will NOT regret your choice! Go with her!!

Jessica was great to work with from so many aspects. She is extremely creative and brings a very sophisticated perspective to any occasion. Her sense of lighting is phenomenal, as well as her ability to "capture a moment" in time.

Her personality is relaxed and friendly, no intimidation. Yet she knows how to get down to business when its picture time and move things along, not waste time,but still have fun doing it. Designing the albums she is really creative and helps a difficult process become easy and satisfying. We will always recommend Stout and continue to use her as life moves on.....

Simply put, you'd be lucky to have Jessica as your photographer. The pictures she took of us, both during our engagement session and at the wedding itself, blew us away. The hard part now is trying to decide which ones we want to frame and put on the wall. And she's is fantastic to work with. She's very professional about what needs to get done, but also has a comfortable presence that feels more like hanging out with a friend. I can't imagine having a better experience or getting better results.

Jessica was nothing short of amazing. We LOVED working with her, and would recommend her to anyone. We wanted to be able to share remember our special day through photographs and we picked the best person to do that. Jessica is not the cheapest photographer out there, but you get exactly what you pay for, a professional photographer who captures stunning photographs. Her packages are clear cut, and you know what you are getting from the moment you book her. She books fast and far out, so don't wait if you are leaning towards her. I promise you won't regret it!

Where do I even begin?!? I could go on forever about how much we absolutely LOVED working with Jessica! She answered every question (and there were A LOT of them!!) with patience and candor, and we knew from our first meeting that we could trust her completely. We have always been camera-shy, but Jessica made us so comfortable. Our engagement session was abolutely beautiful, and our wedding photos are nothing short of breath-taking! If you want pictures that truly reflect who you are as a couple, and if you want a photographer who's as excited about your wedding as you are, then Jessica is the way to go. Not only does she have incredible talent, but she is also an amazing person! We are truly blessed to have had her as our photographer, and to now have her as a friend. I cannot give a strong enough recommendation for Jessica and Stout Photography! Thank you Jessica <3

We absolutely loved working with Jessica! She is amazing. Her style is very creative and captures each and every moment perfectly. She was always on time, dressed professionally and was very good at making us feel at ease, especially during our engagement session. The engagement session really prepared us for our wedding day photos and made it easy for us to relax. She got so many great photos of our wedding. She managed to blend in with everyone so she could get lots of candides but she was also always there when we had a request. I recommend her, hands down over anyone else. She really is an amazing photographer.

We hired Stout Photography for our engagement photos and wedding. Jessica was amazing to work with! Absolutely the best photos we've ever taken, and we get soo many compliments on them. She is extremely flexible. We lived out of state from where the wedding was and she would work with our limited schedules. I would definitely recommended her to any bride looking for a photographer. The photos are one of the most important things of your wedding day.

Jessica is such an AMAZING person and photographer! We don't live in the Sacramento area so we were going to pass on having an e-session. Jessica insisted that we have one so we get to know her before the wedding. So we asked if we could have it in the city my husband and I fell in love in ... Chicago. Jessica being the awesome person she is jumped at the opportunity. She captured the true essence of the love my husband and I have for each other in the city that we love so much. Everyone was in awe at how great our e-session photos turned out.
On our wedding day it rained. I was a little bummed we wouldn't have the bright sunny wedding photos that everyone always wishes for. Jessica did not disappoint! She found such stunning and out of the ordinary places to take photos without everyone getting soaked. Now that we look at our pictures we love that it rained. Only Jessica could turn rainy day wedding photos into a blessing. We just received our wedding album the other day and my heart melted at how much thought and effort she put into putting it together. She truly does get to know each couple and knows what they would like best. I've already showed our wedding album off to so many people ... I'm so excited about it, it's like a child to me :) ... and everyone that has seen it says that it's the most gorgeous wedding album they've every seen.
I could gone on for days about how great Jessica is! Definitely the photographer to go with! We can't wait to see her again!

I ever so highly recommend Stout Photography to everyone and anyone in love. I have never seen photo's as authentic, raw and emotional as their's. We found Stout Photography about a year and a half ago, we had our Engagement session in September and our wedding in October and could not imagine our wedding without Jessica Moores. To know Jessica is to completely love her as a person, a photographer and an artist. Her photo's capture such emotion and beauty that every time you look at them you feel connected to her in a way that you feel like you have known her all your life. You will love her for not only the truly amazing photo's she captures but for being part of a connection you share with your partner that shines through in every picture that is taken, it can only be described as magical.

Words can't even describe what an amazing photographer Jessica is. She is an artist who did more than capture images of our special day... she told the story of our day with her images. She captures the most special candid moments in the most amazing images. Jess and her husband Matt are so fun to work with, they truly helped make our day so special and relaxed. She truly loves what she does and you will feel that from the first time you talk to Jess. On top of what an amazing photographer she is, everything was completed so fast. Within the week after the wedding we had our sneak peeks to share and our proofs to look at. Not even three weeks later our album was ordered!!! Amazing service! We couldn't ask for anything more!!! :-) Thanks Jess and Matt we can't wait for you guys to do our baby pics in a few years. ;-)

Where do I start? Jessica from Stout Photography is absolutely amazing in so many ways. I fell in love with her work online before I had even met her and soon fell in love with her personality, spunk, charming demeanor, passion for photographing people, and life! We actually chose our wedding date based on Jessica's availability!

Jessica's professionalism and organization are the perfect match for brides who are knee deep in wedding planning. She not only is very accommodating, she has so many suggestions for locations for engagement pictures, what to wear, and how to have fun doing it! I love her directive style that still allows for the couple's freedom and personality. She tailored our engagement pics so they represented "us" and met with us beforehand and was genuinely interested in getting to know who we were as a couple, how we met, and what we loved about each other. Her interest in hearing our story and taking a true interest in each of us meant so much. She was so easy to work with, I often describe the experience to others as it was like hanging out with a good friend, who just happened to be photographing you!

For our wedding day, Jessica asked if she could come early to get some test shots and get a few more getting ready photos, which of course we were more than excited about! She was able to capture absolutely everything. Her work speaks for itself, but coming from a bride that can be quite perfectionistic, she truly did a fabulous job. She's super organized and quick, allowing family members and wedding party to go enjoy the reception. She even went to get my husband and I appetizers after the wedding while we were taking the rest of our pictures! Now that's amazing.

She and her husband work together as a flawless team. She came recommended by our venue and I absolutely know why. She even stayed much later than our contract stated, just so she could capture our final getaway exit and because she just didn't want to miss it.

We just received our wedding album (less than 2 months from our wedding day! so quick!) and it's just gorgeous. She and her husband designed the entire album by sorting through all the thousands of images and putting together what looked best. It was fabulous! It saved so much time and they did such a great job. The album came beautifully packaged with a heartfelt thank you note. Such a sweet touch!

When I think of our wedding, I cannot imagine it without Jessica. She was an amazing photographer, but above all she has become a genuine friend. It's so apparent to me how much she cares about all the couples she works with and how important it is to her to provide them with lasting images of their perfect day. She has an infectious spirit that is truly one of a kind and I would recommend her to anyone!

Hello future brides! If I could title my wedding, and bottle up my experiences with my different vendors., I would call it "A Dream Come True". I am that girl that has been dreaming of my wedding since I was a little. In fact every Halloween, I asked to be a bride. To me, I wanted my wedding to be perfect... to be a fairytale. I knew the flowers I wanted, the kind of music I wanted to dance to, the type of dress I would wear, and that I wanted a great photographer to capture each moment... what I didn’t know was how to make all these dreams/ideas in my head a reality.
By a stroke of luck, or fate if you have it, we were referred by our DJ, to a wonderful woman named Jessica Moores, of Stout Photography. I spoke to Jessica over the phone, and it was the funniest thing; I felt like I was talking to a girlfriend I had known for years! She instantly made me feel comfortable.
A week later we were sitting in her living room having a consultation, and looking at her promo books.. I knew I had made the right choice. Every wedding photo I saw, looked like it belonged in a magazine! I was so excited. Doesn’t every girl want to look like a model? Jessica makes you feel like the model behind her camera. My husband (Yay, I can call him that now!) is not very comfortable in front of a camera, he isn’t even big on posing for pictures for holiday cards(what man does?!). BUT… Jessica has a way of comforting you, of posing you in the most natural way, and it just comes off as PERFECTION on print.
Our specific package included an engagement secession, a small album of that(super high quality), 8 hours of wedding day shooting with 2 photographers (Jessica’s husband Matt is the other photographer and is just as fabulous) and a incredible album of the wedding day. Matt even ended up making us a 3 minute video short of our day, which every time I see it, I am in tears!
Stout Photography is two people who take their craft so seriously. They have planning secessions with you to make sure that every specific shot you imagined is taken, they calm your fears and concerns, and they get you to think outside the box of traditional poses. They capture the most intimate moments and you don’t even know they are there. The colors, the quality, and the warm nature of Jessica… it IS everything a wedding photographer should be. Your wedding is the most important step two people can make, and Jessica and Matt of Stout Photography are the only people I would trust with such a big event.
My dear brides, if you are looking for a wedding photographer, who understands your needs, but also gives you some creative magic, LOOK NO FURTHER!! I would suggest (and do!) Stout Photography to everyone I know, and most importantly, my husband and I made 2 new friends for life. Jessica knows she is on stand-by for when we have kids too! Take a look at her blog, and the images will speak for themselves.

Jessica was so wonderful at our wedding. I have only seen a few sneak peak pictures from our magical event on Saturday, and out of the few I have seen, they are ALL perfect. Each photo captures the perfect expression and each moment that I never wanted to forget. Jessica and her assistant were so professional and captured everything with perfection without feeling intrusive or invasive. I got so many compliments on her creative style and fun personality. I recommend her for any professional photos! Our Engagement session was wonderful and plan to use her for future family photos and hoping for a boudoir session! So fun! Thank you Jessica + Stout Photography *****

We had Jessica from Stout photograph our wedding for us earlier this year. She was incredible from the outset of our discussions with her. She creatively took us to a remote location for our engagement session, and we had no idea how the photos might turn out. They were absolutely amazing! As difficult as it is to look at one's self in photos, we couldn't stop staring. Our friends and families were also in love with them. On wedding day, her and her husband were there plenty early, were so easy and fun to work with, and she captured our day in a way I can't begin to describe. We shopped diligently for the right photographer, and Jessica has a style that captures weddings in a 'real' fashion. For those who couldn't attend, when we shared our photos with them, they felt like they were actually there! Jessica rocks!!

We have never imagined our experience with photographer Jessica would be such wonderful. She was really patient with us. Jessica was always available throughout the photo taking session, whenever we have doubts and questions about the photographing, she was there to help us. We got to be familiar with each other in no time. She was so passionate and professional about her job and she took care of every minor detail constantly changing positions to get better angle. When the photos finally came out, I was surprised by how exquisite and delicate they were. The color and calarity all exceeded our expecations.I would have no doubt recommending Jessica to any of our friends and relatives.

We were lucky enough to meet Jessica after our first photographer quit on us. I have to say that was a blessing. Jessica was absolutely fabulous to work with. She listened to what we wanted and was even happy to put up with my picky husband! Anytime I had a question (which there were MANY of) Jessica was happy to help and prompt in her response. She's also SUPER quick with getting you your photos. We had proofs within a week of the wedding! I will be recommending her to my friends and family for sure, and I'm hoping to be able to work with her again once we start our family!!

Jessica Moores is the exact kind of photographer that every bride would hope for. To begin with, the photographs she takes are extraordinary. I had never seen pictures with so much color and clarity until I found the blog to Stout Photography. The pictures are so fantastic, they cause you to take at least a second or third look upon seeing them! I cannot tell you how many people have told me that my engagement and wedding photos are some of the most beautiful pictures they have ever seen, which is a really big deal! For how much her packages cost, you get so much more than your money's worth. You will not second guess that you are making one of the best investments for a memory you will want to have last forever! The icing to the cake of Stout Photography is Jessica herself. Upon the first consultation, her sweet but knowledgeable demeanor allows you to focus enjoyment on your event, because you are putting the photography aspect in the hands of one of the best! She is conscientious of the bride and groom's needs, and was by far one of the most helpful people on my wedding day. I am grateful to how well she kept us on track of making sure we could capture all of the images we would hope to on our wedding day. I simply cannot say enough of how happy I am that I chose Stout Photography, and I will surely hope to have Jessica Moores as my photographer in the next important events I would like to have photographed (as she does great family portraits, birthing documentations, etc too!) Thank you so much Jessica!

Choosing Jessica as our wedding photographer was the smartest thing we could have done! We started off with engagement photos, and just after working with her, we were ready to hire her! Then we saw the photos and knew we needed her. Working with Jessica was so easy- she is very helpful (I ended up changing wedding locations, and chose the location Jessica recommended) and responded quickly to calls or email. I appreciated that she took time to recommend/advise me on other wedding aspects, which isn't something I would expect a photographer to do.

When our wedding day finally arrived, Jessica and Dave (her 2nd shooter that day) were ready to capture everything. Not one moment was missed by them, and we are so grateful to have a beautiful wedding album full of those memories. Jessica was very professional, and unlike other photographers I have seen at weddings, she blended into the background, yet captured everything. When we saw a sneak peek (I think 3 days later!) my husband, Mike, and I both cried (he'll say he got teary eyed). It was such a great day and it really was captured perfectly.

I would recommend looking at Stout Photography's website and blog- I still do, even after our wedding! It is full of beautiful work, and Jessica's talent shines through in every photo. I would also highly recommend Jessica and Stout Photography, I cannot say enough good things about her! :)

Jessica was my wedding photographer and she also shot our engagement photos. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone I know or don't know for that matter. She is friendly, personable and responsive not to mention an amazing photographer. She has an eye for capturing emotion and once in a lifetime moments.

My husband actually hates taking pictures and is very shy when being photographed. Jessica was able to bring him out of that so that we were able to get some amazing shots. My husband felt very comfortable with her and has also recommended her to a couple of his friends that are getting married.

We hope to have an opportunity to work with Jessica and Matt again.

I cannot say enough about Stout Photography. From the moment I saw Jessica's work, I had tears in my eyes and I wanted her to be my photographer. She is the most amazing person, and she is very good at what she does. She has a way of making you feel comfortable, and that allows her to capture very romantic and beautiful photos. My family loved her, and my bridesmaids adored her too! They were even asking about her for their future weddings! Most importantly, she is very flexible and very easy to work with. She always got back to us quickly in regards to our questions, and I always felt comfortable speaking to her about what I wanted. By the way, can I just add that she and her amazing assistant even drove my ringbear (my dog) to the wedding because we ran out of space!!!! What more could you ask for?

I was so incredibly blessed to have her at my wedding. I had a simple wedding but she made it look extravagant with the pictures she took.

We had a lot of fun taking the engagment photos. During the wedding she had a creative way of capturing the moment without taking away from the experience. We wanted a mixture of photojournalistic photos and posed photos and she did a great job with both. She also was great at directing the wedding party when needed. Pick Stout Photography!!! You won't be sorry :-)

Jessica an Matt are amazing. I want to start with all the things they did to help me (they were the first vendor I booked). I loved Jessica's style and it was so important to me to book her but I didn't have enough money saved for the initial deposit - I told her and she made a payment agreement to work with me. I also wanted to do my engagement photography session in the Bay Area (which is an extra fee) and she called me everytime she was traveling to the Bay so we could meet up to aviod the extra fee. She also meet with me SIX times to go over details I was stressing over - each time she was so patient and offered me creative solutions to my problems (plus I liked getting a peak of her big Mastiff dog at her house :) Then when I was having an anxiety attack on my wedding day she calmed my nerves and kept fluffing my hair to release some nerves! She also had deal with the crazy church coordinator who was being difficult - Jess kept her cool and worked around everything and captured every shot in the ceremony we had discussed. She also was extremely patient with the album design after the wedding (it took me two months)! Overall I was extremely impressed and pleased with Stout Photography - they are true professionals.

It rained on our wedding and the pictures turned out great. She used professional equipment and the main thing was she was passionate about what she does!!! The price was very reasonable, compared to a lot of other companies out there. She traveled to us, which was a plus. They take payment plans which made it easy for us. I highly recommend Stout photography.

Jessica was AMAZING! Hands down, Shout Photo was my favorite vendor of the wedding! She and her assistant were so fun to work with and took a great deal of stress off of me on the big day. They professional but still personable and brought even more joy to our wedding. Amidst the chaos that can come on a wedding day, Jessica's calm and joyful spirit was a comfort and put my husband and I at ease. She truly shared in the joy of our day. Not only was she our favorite vendor to work with, but she also produced the best results! Her pictures surpassed our expectations! She took a full range from formals to casual to creative. Looking at our pictures, we can enjoy the whole day over again! Also, we received our proofs in less than a WEEK after the wedding! After we viewed the photos online we were able to purchase the proofs/rights and make our own copies. Jessica Moores and Stout photography was by far the best vendor of the wedding!!!

Jessica and the other photographers at Stout Photography are truly amazing! Working with them was by far the easiest, smoothest part of my wedding day. Not only did my wedding pictures come out stunning, I got exactly the photos I wanted. I cannot say enough good things about Stout photography! They simply are the best. Everyone who has seen my wedding album is in absolute amazement and says they have never in their lives seen anything like it. On top of that, the prices are incredibly reasonable and the packages are really flexible so you can customize the exact type of photography you want. I greatly look forward to having Jessica shoot my future family portraits!

Jessica Stout was one of the best parts of my wedding and for sure the BEST vendor I hired. There is so much riding on wedding day photos, because you only get one shot and you can't go back and redo them if you hate them. The one piece of advice I got from other friends who recently got married was to not skimp on the wedding photographer. Spend the money to get the best. And I did.

Jessica is not just a photographer, she is an artist. She captured so much emotion in each step of my ceremony. I think that is the thing I loved the most about my photos, all of the emotion! She made my wedding day photos look like they should be in a wedding magazine, everyone who looks at them is amazed on how great they turned out! What she does with light is magical, her artistic eye knows just how to shoot to capture the natural beauty in every location.

I am not a photogenic person and I actually hate taking photos, so I knew that my wedding day photos would be a challenge for me personally. Jessica was very patient with me and was so sweet in putting up with some of the crazy people I invited to my wedding and all the little kids running around. She talked us through each shot and helped us to relax and get those "candid shots".

Almost six months later I still look at the book she made for us of our photos and think back on that amazing day. Thank you Jessica for capturing that moment in time. I would recommend her a hundred times over.

Jessica is both professional and personable. She was ready and willing to do everything we asked and had lots of creative ideas to share. We got a killer deal with Stout Photography, they truly understand that weddings are expensive but everyone should have fabulous pictures to show their grandkids and that's definitely what we have. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone.

Jessica and Matthew shot our wedding and they did a fabulous job. They were professional and created amazing photos. We had a lot of fun at the engagement session as well; Jessica even stayed out a little later than planned so we could get the perfect shot. We let her choose the photos for our album and it is beautiful. We also were thrilled to be able to get a coffee table book with our engagement photos that we used as our guest book: big hit with the guests AND we got our favorite e-session photos. I highly recommend Stout Photography.

Our entire wedding was planned to be outside, and unfortunately, we had to deal with the unexpected rain....we were worried that because of the rain, we were going to miss out on getting great photography--NOT TRUE!! Stout photography was exceptional from the beginning. Truly some of the best photography we've ever seen...they always amaze me by how well they really capture the emotions and people. You won't be disappointed if you choose Stout! : )

We feel this was the worst photographer ever!! Not happy with our photos, photo quality, photo creativity, or the overall album we received. We have never dealt with such little professionalism from someone like this photographer. Very disappointed with our overall experience and had our entire wedding photography experience ruined by this photographer. Not even all of our requests were done. We got one photo from a few important events from our night and when asked where the others were, it was said to us that they are no longer available. Have tons more horrible experiences to say regarding this photographer but this review could go on forever. We do NOT recommend this photographer or wish our experience upon anyone! I wish more of the couples we spoke with who had this photographer would come through and leave there experiences.

Stout Photography responded with the following comments:

This review is so difficult and hurtful to read. It has no validity and is simply unfair. Michele and Sam raved about their photos and experience from both the engagement session and wedding! It was not until a discrepancy for an over-time charge that our relationship went south. From the very beginning of my working relationship with Sam and Michele, I've gone above and beyond for them. It's always my goal to not only meet, but exceed our couples expectations and I feel I have done this for them, which makes this review even more difficult to take.

First, they requested to do their engagement session in Santa Cruz (3 hours from Sacramento) and changed their mind after learning about our travel fee. I could tell they were really disappointed, so I arranged to shoot their session the day after shooting a wedding in Monterey. I stayed over-night solely for the purpose of accommodating shooting their session the next day. (waiving the travel fee)

Although I typically shoot weddings with Matthew, Michele and Sam specifically requested to have our associate photographer, Dave, co-shoot their wedding with me. I commissioned Dave for their day to accommodate their request.

Just two weeks after their wedding we met to proceed with their album design. They RAVED about their photos! They had some revisions to their design which we were happy to accommodate. This was followed by two additional sets of revisions (two more than we typically do, but, I really wanted them to be happy) and although they state in their review that all of their requests were not done and they are unhappy with their album, they did sign and approve their album design before it was sent to our binder for completion.

As I mentioned above, my relationship with them went south only after sending them a final invoice for a single hour of over-time that totaled $100. This hour was discussed both prior to and on the day of their wedding with their wedding coordinator, whom communicated to us that it was approved by Michele. Michele and Sam later claimed that they understood, although their contract stated they had 7 hours of coverage, they believed it to mean we stayed until the end. After that issue was addressed, they then claimed they did not believe we actually stayed the extra hour at all. After explaining our images are time-stamped and we could provide proof to them of our start and ending times, they finally claimed the over-time was simply unapproved. Although we felt we had stayed only with their permission, I offered to waive the fee for them and remove the images that were taken in the final hour. This was not an acceptable compromise to them. Instead they asked to apply the tip given the night of their wedding, toward their balance, which I allowed.

Michele and Sam have stated their photos lack creativity and quality. I invite you to view their photos here:

http://blog.stoutphoto.com/2010/10/11/michele-and-sam-wedding/

We, like most photography studios, do not deliver every photo we take. We narrow it down to the best of the best in an effort avoid overwhelming our couples. Over 400 images were delivered to Sam and Michele.

I build very personal relationships with my couples who invite me to document a very important day of their lives and I take this review very seriously. While I welcome constructive feedback, I truly and honestly feel this review was created intentionally vague and is unwarranted.
