Andrea and Patrick // Kerikeri Wedding

Jess was the photographer for our wedding in February 2020. Jess is talented, kind and wonderful to work with. My husband and I are not used to taking professional photos but Jess made us feel so comfortable on the big day.
We were so happy opening our digital gallery and seeing all of the beautifully shot and edited photos. Jess got all the shots we could have hoped for and many more. We’ve picked our favourites and it was no trouble getting them printed and framed for the wall – the high resolution and quality of the photos gave us a lot of options. Jess was a dream to work with. She is very professional and was always responsive in our communications leading up to the wedding. I would recommend booking Jess for any special event!

Samaria and Jason // Oakura Bay Wedding

Perfection! This simple word describes the not so simple task Jess had when photographing our wedding – being one of the last for the season due to covid-19. It came right down to the wire but once we had the okay there was no stopping us from going through with things and we got to have our dream day as planned on the 20.03.20. Jess was with us all of the way which was a big ask considering all of the unknowns – but we got there and what a perfect day it was. Jess was amazing to work with from first contact right up to the day – and beyond. Jess is easy going and so passionate about her work, making you feel completely comfortable, even when you’re having a cheeky snog! I knew we’d struck gold when I first came across Jess’s work and this was confirmed when we received our photo’s back (in record time). Our photographs are beyond amazing, there are some very special shots and moments that we will forever treasure. Thank you so much Jess!

Guys, if you’re looking for perfection, look no further! xx

Merle and Andrew // Russell Wedding

Jess was our wedding photographer in 2020. We couldn’t have wished a better person to capture our day. She will rock up with smile on her face and full of energy to snap up all the moments.

She absolutely loves what she does and it shows in the final pictures. If you want natural unposed photos that capture your personality, special day, unforgettable moments she is knows how to do it the best. She makes you forget that there is a camera and taking photos becomes a very fun experience.

She has great eye on detail and lovely way of telling the story. Looking through all pictures feels like we are re-living the day. She didn’t miss single thing that wouldn’t tell the day in its purest colours.

Thank you so much Jess, you are amazing and I hope we have another opportunity to have a photo shoot again on another life occasion.

Sarah and Tristan // Tutakaka Wedding

Jess is an absolute legend! We got married at home on the 14th of March, not long before the lockdown took affect. One of the first things we booked when planning our wedding was our photographer. We took a road trip up to Kerikeri to meet Jess and we knew straight away she was the right person for the job. She made us feel like friends, not clients. On our big day, despite all the nerves, Jess was so chilled and just blended into the background capturing all the action. When it came to the group and bridal party shots she gave us heaps of direction so we didn’t look or feel awkward and even dealt with the challenge of us throwing our 8 month old baby into the mix! Our day was beyond our expectations and Jess magically captured the love, laughter and overall vibe perfectly!
Thank you Jess…when we look over our photos it takes us back to that magical day, and while the world is in such a state of uncertainty its so important to remember these good times! xx
