I'm Jess. or Jessica. Just not jessie... Unless you're my nephew.

I'm a born & raised Midwesterner currently based in Hood River, Oregon. When I'm not jet-setting around the world, I love spending my time with people - laughing, exploring, and eating. On quieter days, you can find me curled up with my nose in a book, at the dog park with my pup, or playing board games with my guy.

After years of documenting my travels on Instagram (@theregoesjess), someone (hi Ali!) saw my work and reached out to ask if I'd ever be interested in wedding photography. I work full-time in the travel industry, but love getting my creative groove on as much as possible. Shoot me a quick message if you're interested in working together, or if you want the recipe for my favorite one-pan sausage tortellini.

in my bag:

  • 2 Nikon D750's w/ Dual Card Slots
  • Sigma ART 35mm, f/1.4
  • Nikon 50mm, f/1.8
  • Tamron 28-75mm, f/2.8
  • Sigma 10-20mm, f/3.5
  • Phottix Mitros Off Camera Flash
  • For fun: Fujifilm x100V w/ Conversion Lenses


I actually shot my first wedding on Canon because the main photographer didn't want to edit Nikon images. Always happy to do the same for you, if you've got the extra equipment!
