Hi I’m Jess, capturing romantic weddings along the Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley & Beyond
It’s grandma looking on proudly, it’s your friends holding back tears during the speeches (who am I kidding?! It’s me holding back tears behind the camera!). It’s moments like this that I cherish capturing. They’re real and they’re in the moment. Being invited to capture people’s weddings, sharing in one of their most intimate moments is an absolute privilege that I’ll never take for granted.
We all know that same story. You finish school and then you have to figure out what to do with your life. I didn’t know what I wanted to do at the time but I knew that it would revolve around photography. Between finishing school and starting my business, I backpacked through Europe, I worked retail and I even got my photography and teaching degree.
Of those three things, it was my adventures overseas that led me here. In the streets of Europe, I developed a love for documentary photography, capturing the unseen moments and learning to love natural light. I learnt how to spot the potential of a moment and how to anticipate the way light changes. That’s why I shoot candid photography. It’s that feeling of capturing a moment without interruption that brought me to weddings.
When I’m not following people around with my camera, you’ll find me adventuring somewhere along the Mornington Peninsula with my partner and our puppy Lulu in tow. Whether it’s at a vineyard, picking cherries or eating delicious dumplings, you’ll find us enjoying the simple pleasures in life.
That’s enough about me! I can’t wait to hear more about your story and to be there alongside you to capture your special moments. Let’s make your wedding day experience truly unforgettable!
