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 love: spooky things, the ocean, red wine, flashy gold jewelry, stinky food, The Misfits (see spooky things), political satire, art and art adjacent things, and people who can teach me how to make things with my hands. I really love music and my favorite song changes all the time: right now it's "Let's Dance" by M Ward. I'm a big NPR fan and can typically be found listening to podcasts. I have a dog whom I am quite proud of, I'll show you plenty of photos of her next time we hang out. Oh, and I might cry at your wedding :)
