• I’m Jess!

    LIFE. PASSION. ADVENTURE. JOY. Standing beneath streams of golden light, he’s telling you a secret, your arms are wrapped around his neck and that secret results in a burst of wide open LAUGHTER. This is my goal as a photographer, to constantly seek moments of beauty in light, color and emotion......to capture your colorful life.

    As a result of my love for people and art, I graduated from Sonoma State in 1993 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in ART. Living with my husband in Northern California, we’re recent empty nesters, resulting in two over-indulged, naughty hound dogs who enjoy running our show.

    Tell me about yourself... Are you a hard-working mama, putting everyone before yourself and needing a reminder of who you are; a little glimpse back into that inner SPARKLE? Perhaps you have a vision your family cuddled up on a blanket in a grassy, sun dappled field, knowing these moments together are so, so fleeting, wanting to remember things that are SIMPLE and pure. Are you starting your new life with THE ONE that gets your heart beating fast, who will one day know you to your core and be your biggest fan anyway? Write me a little note, share your vision and together we’ll help you REMEMBER. DISCOVER. CAPTURE.

When the sun rises over the horizon,

the butterfly emerges to dance in its brilliant light.
It flickers its colorful wings with euphoria,
To celebrate all the beauty found
in the majestic garden of life.

Bowman Wells… a name fit for a star. This Roseville High School Senior  has been joking, smiling and performing since the minute I met him. (which happened to be straight from his mother’s womb) He’s already been in a movie and several HS plays and actually owns his own tux!   I found this link… I wonder if he can relate? 25 signs you are a theatre kid   Love you BoBo and hope you remember the little people when you move to Hollywood!

Bright and sunshiny, flowers everywhere, the sound of waves crashing, surrounded by friends and family -it was a magical day! Christy and Dan said ‘I do’ while Bailey, the flower dog captured it all on video. Dipsea Gardens was the perfect backdrop for the perfect day.  Christy (or Belledozer to her derby sisters) got ready in a cute little ocean side bungalow while her groom- to -be hung out with friends at a home over looking the great Pacific. Stinson Beach is one of my favorite little towns; with cute shops, bathing suit clad beach goers and a dog-friendly beach that goes on forever. After exchanging vows at the lovely gardens, the party rolled on to the Stinson Beach Community center. A quaint little building with a beautiful outdoor space, twinkle lights and a community feel. The details were special, with hand made soaps and bright flowers. A major highlight of the evening was when Dan played the grand piano, surprising his new bride -a song created specifically for her. Catering by The Lunch Box was phenomenal and the grand finale…. my new favorite thing, drumroll please….  AN ICE CREAM TACO TRUCK! Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos came by and delivered sweet treats and made a lot of people really happy.  A lot of heart and soul was put into Dan and Christy’s special day and we were honored to be a part of it!

I went a little crazy uploading images from Andrea & Tyler’s Blue Goose wedding! This day was so full of laughter, love, excitement, family, wrestling…  you name it! Everything a great wedding should have.  Married early this Winter on an amazing, sunny day, Andrea and Tyler made their little family official. I loved the pretty little details from the good-luck horse shoes made by Andrea and her mama to the babies breath and twinkle lights everywhere. It makes such a stunning statement mixed with the metal, wood and details of the old fruit packing shed. Scroll down to the see the wrestle mania that occurred over the garter and Andrea’s impressive muscles. This wedding was a perfect way to end my 2015 wedding season! Happiness and blessings to your beautiful little family!

Alecia is going places and has some great college choices. She’s going to be great no matter where she ends up.  She’s a kind, beautiful, smart and athletic woman! We had a lot of laughs and it was such a pleasure shooting with Alecia and her parents.
