Missy + Kane

Jess was our wedding photographer and we absolutely loved both her and her work. Jess is a very talented photographer and blended in well on our day capturing all the special moments and all the finer details that were unique to our wedding. She was amazing with all the kids capturing photos that we will treasure forever. Jess's relaxed and bubbly nature made our day stress free and so much fun. Thank you Jess, we couldn't of asked for a better photographer for such a special day.

We were so lucky to have Jess capture our special day. She has an incredible ability to capture moments you don’t even realise are happening. She also made us, and our bridal party feel so comfortable. We’re in love with all our pictures and feel like we can relive that day by looking through them all!

I’ve struggled to even start writing this as I was unsure how to put into words what Jess has done for us. Not only did having Jess do the photography for our wedding day mean that we had friend involved, it meant that we really felt she would go all out to make everything perfect. It turns out you don’t need Jess to be your friend for this to happen - it comes naturally with her talent, skill & dedication to what she does.

Jess made each and every person she came across that day feel important and she got the best out of each one of them. We were dreading having so many photos taken and our bridal party were a lovable nightmare to control. But Jess made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed and got them to be the best version of themselves. My entire wedding party loved her and commented on her professionalism. She has the patience of a Saint.

People say you miss so much on your big day and you must try to make the most of it. We didn’t miss out on anything because when we got a chance to see our photos, Jess had captured it all! There were the most amazing candid shots - catching people and their reactions at the best moments. Plus the stunning planned photos that we could not have dreamed would turn out as amazing as they did. Even our dog T-bone got involved and I swear he would have stood on his head for Jess.

We could not be any happier with the photos and would not hesitate for a moment in recommending Jess to anyone.

Jess was fantastic right from the beginning - from the engagement shoot, through to the finished prints. The service that she provided has been to the highest standard, and she made the whole process fun and enjoyable at the same time.

I am still so impressed with the way that Jess managed to capture so many important and special moments on our wedding day, and yet we didn't even notice her! She was completely unobtrusive and respectful, and still captured all of our beautiful and intimate moments.

Jess has a natural way of helping people feel relaxed and comfortable, and our guests commented and praised her for this too. She worked so quickly (all day and night!) to get every shot that we wanted, but didn't make us feel rushed or pressured in the process. We have a beautiful range of both formal and informal photos from throughout the day and night.

We are so pleased that we selected Jess to be our wedding photographer. She deserves the highest praise - her photos of our wedding are beautiful and special and will be forever treasured x
