 Photography For The Wildly In Love

Hey, I’m Jess! I believe in capturing moments that you’ll look back on and feel something real. Something you’ll love!

I’m based in Wellington and the Manawatu. I don’t do the traditional thing. I’m the one who goes in for a hug rather than a handshake and lives life by the motto “must always have snacks.” I’m drawn to our beautiful landscapes, people and creative souls. 

And when you invite me into your story, I'll become a friend for life.

LOVE NOTES

She makes awkward situations fun and natural!
It’s like hanging out with your bestie! Jess made us laugh & we felt super relaxed around her. Her bubbly & calm energy helped us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The experience was super fun and light-hearted. We are in loveeee with our pictures and we couldn’t recommend her more!

THE WORLD’S OUR OYSTER

I live and breath destination shoots. There's nothing like capturing authentic souls on earth's soil. Embracing what our phenomenal landscapes have to offer.  

Destination weddings can be incredibly memorable and such a fun experience. I would love to document your once in a lifetime adventure with your loved ones. 

Always feel free to reach out via instagram, facebook or via my contact page on here if you have any questions about weddings outside of Wellington & Manawatu.
