2012

Well... I'm already getting inquiries for 2012.
And we all know the apocalypse is coming, right?

This is my 3rd year doing wedding photography. It's been a fun ride so far.
This year, I decided to focus primarily on Ohio. Last year (2009), I had most of my weddings out of state, which was slightly exhausting. So I started advertising in The Knot Ohio magazine and got 23 fabulous brides and grooms to book me for 2011. WOOO!
That's pretty much a wedding every weekend for half of the year. BOOM! And I won Best of Photography for 2011 for Columbus. Shazam!

Next year, I plan to book 20 weddings. (Or more. I haven't decided.)
My rate will be $3,400 for 8 hours or $3,700 for 10 hours. (More details if you contact me.)

I've been thinking about hiring a 2nd photographer to build up my business. Although, I'm mostly tempted to hire an assistant to help me with everything.

So let's all raise our glasses to a victorious past 3 years!

And thanks to everyone who has booked me, supported me, encouraged me and stalked me!
I couldn't have done it without all your love and super stalking skills. :)

Love,
Jess

PS. And if you do stalk me, you can totally comment on my posts and I will not bite you.

Nick & Megan

Springfield, OH

Megan and I have a bunch of mutual friends. Horray! She got engaged to her high school sweetheart, Nick. Through her awesome friend Shawn, we got connected and they booked me for their big day.

Megan and Nick are such down to earth people. I remember when I first sat down with them. We had a drink and just talked. They are easy to get along with. They are friendly and inviting. I love that.

The entire day was beautiful. And SRSLY! 23 bridal party members. It's by far the largest bridal party I've ever had. As a matter of fact, it's the largest WEDDING I've ever shot. So much love here.

Enjoy these photos!

I love animals!

Yesterday I went to the Humane Society with the Dayton City Paper. I photographed dogs and cats that need to be adopted. There are SO many. It made my little heart hurt.

In a few weeks, there will be an article in the paper. Be on the look out.
And remember that there are tons of furry little friends that need loving homes.

Dan & Indi!

Dan and Indi are such a sweet couple. They found me on The Knot a while ago and booked me for their big day. They are one of those couples that you just want to hug and drink tea with.

Their wedding was in Columbus and it was so much fun. They did a flash mob dance, got in MC Hammer wear and had a wonderful time with family and friends. Indi's dress was FABULOUS. I just loved everything about this wedding.

Congrats to Indi and Dan! I hope you have a wonderful move to Cali! Enjoy that warm weather and eat some good mexican food for me!

Enjoy these photos. :)
