Jessica is a true professional who captured the love between us on our crazy hectic day!

from Jenn & Matt

"Jessica was such a wonderful photographer, we could not be happier with our decision to go forward with her. Initially we were very nervous about photography in general as we felt very awkward behind a camera, but Jessica made us feel insanely comfortable and captured the real moments between us. Our wedding day was fast-paced and stressful but Jessica handled it like a champ, kept us on track, and on top of her amazing poses and candid snaps, still managed to get all the photos on my insane photo-request list. Our engagement photos were breathtaking, and so far our wedding photos have blown me away. She is a true professional who really knows how to utilize scenery and light, wrangle difficult extended families, and capture the love between us even when we felt nervous or stressed out.

What is extremely important in a photographer is someone who can capture the essence of the couple during a crazy day, and Jessica surely can do that! I am so happy with her and our photos that we will treasure forever. "

Jessica is a rockstar. 

from Daniela & James

"We found her work on Instagram (@jessicajaccarinophoto) and loved what we saw! When we met her, we knew we had to use her for our special day. Let’s just say, it was the best wedding decision we made. Jessica is punctual, dependable, hard working, and an excellent communicator. In addition to that, she’s super creative, has a great eye, and gets those perfect shots that make you gasp when you see them. She’s also super friendly and easy to get along with. On our wedding day,she made us feel extremely comfortable.

She gave us just enough direction and still allowed us to be our silly selves. Jessica sent us a sneak peak of photos shortly after our wedding. I, the bride, squealed at EVERY photo I saw. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. She’sseriously amazing, and we could not recommend her enough. If you’re looking for a photographer, Jessica is your girl! Seriously, stop looking. She’s it.”

 Her attention to detail and eye for design is stunning.

from Shay & William

"Jess did our wedding along with an engagement shoot and the rehearsal dinner.

I told her I wanted her to “coach” me through the process, give feedback and provide instruction to make the pictures look good. She handled that with ease while still making us feel comfortable. Her attention to detail and eye for design is stunning.

Our staged and styled accessories turned out so cool! She captured some amazing moments and I’ll be forever grateful. Thank you Jess! "

 Jessie’s work is AMAZING!!

from Maura & Bobby

"We chose Jessie for our San Diego cliffside elopement, and couldn’t have asked for anyone better! She was responsive and helpful right from the start. Since we were coming from out of town, we really appreciated that she went above and beyond to help with little details (like picking up the bouquet!) and making suggestions for other vendors and locations that only a well seasoned pro would know. She stayed in touch throughout the planning process with peeks of the location, photo ideas and feedback on our “day of timeline”. On our big day, Jessie was so sweet and friendly! She immediately fit in with the excitement and activities, working professionally and seamlessly with our cinematographer and makeup. By the end of the day it seemed like we were all old friends, and that really made our experience so beautiful and peaceful!! I’ll include a few of the sneak peeks -but we are blown away by how beautifully she captured US and our elopement! Her direction and technique really allowed for us to be in the moment and capture authentic moments from our special day! Her eye for detail and styling is spot on and everything she’s delivered has been beyond our expectations! Her photos capture the story of us perfectly and we will cherish these images forever!! I highly recommend you book Jessie ASAP to document YOUR story and wedding!! "

It’s hard to find the right words to explain how wonderful Jessie is. 

from Lizzie & Bobby

"It’s pretty stressful to select vendors when you are planning a destination wedding. I interviewed 5 photographers until I talked to Jessie on the phone. While I was first drawn to her romantic, emotional, and “soft” photography style, I hired her in large part because I loved her personality! She was so down to earth, confident and unpretentious on the phone. It was no surprise that Jessie was a gift to our entire wedding weekend. She photographed the rehearsal and our wedding day. Having your picture taken all day isn’t natural to most of us, and she made me feel beautiful, graceful and she kept my husband and I laughing. Jessie kept me on schedule, she put on my veil and helped bustle my dress; she was more helpful than our wedding planner! A handful of guests even commented on how amazing our photographer was; they felt like she was capturing all the important moments.

I hated saying goodbye to her at the end of the night. I felt like Jessie was more of a friend than our photographer, and we owe so many of our wedding day memories to her. I would hire her 1000x over!"

We Loved working with Jess!

from Alicia & Dana

"From our first meeting we felt comfortable with her. On our engagement shoot she gave us great direction and made us feel relaxed. The photos were amazing so we knew the wedding day would be great. On the wedding day both she and her second shooter were kind, friendly and made everyone feel at ease. She was so prepared and organized, even meeting with us the day before to plan some shots. We love all the photos!!!

Not only did she get beautiful shots but she captured the energy of the day and all the details so we have them to cherish for ever. Working with Jess was one of the best choices we could have possibly made for our wedding!"

We can’t speak highly enough of Jess! 

from Arika & Ben

"From the very beginning, Jess was responsive, flexible and laid back, yet professional. When my husband and I met her for the first time (two days prior to our wedding), I felt like I had known her for years. When discussing wedding details we had connected on the level of our love for our pets.

Before wedding photography Jess mentioned she had photographed dogs/pets and if you know anything about me I LOVE MY PUP. Jess went out of her way to find someone to make Nala a flower crown for our wedding photos (She might have stolen the show!). I couldn’t have been more thrilled and appreciative of her doing this. This is just one of the many things we loved about Jess.

She is extremely creative and has an eye for detail. We highly recommend Jess as a wedding photographer -she was definitely the perfect choice for us."

Jess was absolutely amazing.

from Kara & Anthony

"When I first talked to her I knew she was the perfect fit. She was organized, professional, and knew exactly what to do to photograph every aspect of our special day. Throughout the whole process she was there to help me and answer any questions I had. She even made a special trip the week of the wedding to check out our home and meet my husband and I.

She told me exactly what she needed ready and asked me what I wanted before hand so I would get exactly what I wanted. The day of she arrived on time and ready to go. She moved everyone along and took the most amazing photos. Both my husband and I felt extremely comfortable with her and felt like we could be completely honest and open with her, which is a huge thing.

Her second photographer was on point as well. Everything about Jess was completely amazing. I would recommend her 100% and can not wait to see the rest of our photos!"
