Hey there, I'm Jess!
I'm a home grown Rhode Island girl, now living in Boston. Newport is my hometown and I try to get back to "the island" as often as possible. I love to travel but there's something so special to me about New England: it will always be home. I spent 5 years living in the mountains of Vermont and my career as a photographer was born there. I have been shooting weddings professionally for 4 years now, general portraiture for 8 years, and my regular 9-5 is working as a studio photographer for a global online retailer.
I have a BA in Fine Art with a concentration in Photography and Digital Media. Shooting weddings is something I do because I absolutely love portraiture, I love weddings, and I love capturing the happiest moments in a person's life.
A few personal notes (get ready for some non-sequitur ramblings)
I'm an extremely curious person which makes me pretty bad at small talk. I love: spooky things, the ocean, cooking, dry humor, red wine, flashy gold jewelry, stinky food, political satire, art and art adjacent things, and people who can teach me how to make things with my hands. I'm really interested in interior design, though I can't claim that I have any skill. I really love music and my favorite song changes all the time: right now it's "Water Me" by Lizzo and "Let's Dance" by M Ward. I'm a big NPR fan and can typically be found listening to podcasts. I have a really hard time turning down a dare. I want to eat Thai food at least once a week, and I'm one of those odd people who LOVES tofu. Jeff Bridges is my "hall pass". I have a dog whom I am quite proud of, I'll show you plenty of photos of her next time we hang out ;)
