I'm Jessica, a wedding & portrait photographer based out of Virginia Beach, VA. Here on the blog, you'll find posts such as recent work, personal stuff, and vacation experiences! Feel free to browse around the blog to see some of my awesome clients, and get to know me a little better!
I have known Jenna since she was I think 13-14 years old. Seeing her all grown up into the beautiful young woman that she is brought tears to my eyes. I made a trip back home to Ohio, and with Jenna’s killer style and perfect hair (she’s in school to be a stylist too so check her out if you need anything done: https://www.instagram.com/hairbyjennaelliott/ ) I knew I HAD to have her and her boyfriend Jesse model for me. I mean just look at them, clearly made for the camera, and their love shines so so bright through these photos.
Oftentimes people say “why would we take couples photos, we’re not engaged, pregnant, etc.” and personally, I don’t think you need a big reason to take couples photos. Of course, you definitely should document those special moments, but that isn’t the only time you should get in front of the camera. Taking couples photos not only provides you with memories to look back on, but receiving your gallery and looking at beautiful professional photos of you and your loved one gives you all the feels. Jenna told me she didn’t know it was even possible to fall more in love with Jesse, but seeing photos of them together made her do just that. I have actually had so many people that tell me that, and I have had that same feeling when looking through photos of Matt and I.
I absolutely love that I have a job where I can give people those falling in love feelings all over again. It is so rewarding, and I will cherish the sweet responses I get from my clients forever!
