Hey friends, I’m Jessika, but you can call me Ranger Jess. I’m based in San Diego, but I’m always packing my bags for an adventure! I want your day to be about the two of you and your love for each other. I’ll guide you from start to finish, making you feel comfortable, creating your elopement timeline and hyping you up! My experience with travel and the outdoors allows me to be an expert when it comes to beautiful locations. When you hire me, not only will I be your adventure buddy, I’ll be providing all the resources you need to make sure you’re not stressed about what to do next. Lets create an experience together. We can go hiking, off roading, and adventuring through the great outdoors together. I want to document your love surrounded by the most epic views earth has to offer!

If I could be anywhere in the world it would be on top of a mountain, with the wind in my hair. It’s one of the reasons I love my job as an adventure elopement photographer. I grew up camping and hiking, so the outdoors are a big part of who I am(thanks mom!) When I was a kid I wanted to be a park ranger. What job is better than working outdoors in a beautiful national park?! (The only one that’s better is my current job lol) Most days you can find me cuddling my favorite person and 2 dogs, watching Fraiser, Law & Order or Slashers films. I might be a tad obsessed with hand poke tattoos(I have 7 as of right now.) During long road trips I listen to a lot of crime podcasts and classic rock. I love colorful, boho, and authentic life moments.

Hiring Jessika for our wedding was the best decision we made. She rolled with every change we had to make through the year of planning and helped me with my timeline with multiple location changes which made the day flow wonderfully. Jessika not only captured our day in amazing, unreal photos of all of our details, our family and us as a couple, but she took such great care of me. She always made sure my hair was in place, my dress was presented perfectly and I was well hydrated on the unseasonably warm October day. You can't help but trust her and feel excited by how much she loves what she does. We will cherish these photos forever. I can say without a doubt that this is not the last time we will hire Jessika. We will travel wherever we need to to work with her again.

Jessika has been my go-to girl since day one. I stumbled upon her by winning a free boudoir shoot. That very first time she made me feel so absolutely comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera when most usually I am so afraid for pictures to be taken because I feel so insecure. Jessika’s joy throughout her photo shoots are infectious and just make you feel so in the moment, beyond beautiful and beyond confident. Ever since, I have hired Jessika to be my photographer. She’s recently shot my engagement photos and my fiancé has began to love Jessika just as much as I have. He similarly feels uncomfortable in front of the camera but Jessika is always sure to direct us, help us relax and be ourselves, and find the shot we never expected to get. She has become our permanent hype girl and we couldn’t imagine hiring anyone besides Jessika to photograph our elopement and tag along through our life adventure. So much love & appreciation of you, Jess!!! Thank you for doing what you do!

Jessika helped me to have my dream elopement. She was much more than a photographer in the sense that she discussed elopement locations and times with me so that we could get the best setting. She made us feel so comfortable and I felt like she was there as a friend. Her photography is in a class of its own. I feel like our wedding photos are a collection of art pieces and we were so fortune to book with Jessika. I will treasure these images for a lifetime.

If I could give Jessika more than 5 stars, I would! First of all, she takes BEAUTIFUL photos and has such a creative style. I am not artistic so I'm not great at explaining what I want or expect, but I have worked with Jessika before and trusted that she would know what I wanted and would like, and again she blew away my expectations. Not only does she have the talent but she also balances showing professionalism and letting her friendly personality come out as well. She arrived at the venue during a super busy time and knew exactly what to do, which kept stress off of me! She makes sure she knows about family situations because she wants everyone comfortable. She directed poses for family photos as well as just photos of my husband and I seamlessly. I honestly believe she will be my photographer for all my future needs - maternity, etc, because of her skill and because of who she is as a person! I love her and could go on forever if I could. HIRE HER, you will regret it if you don't!

I found Jessika from her reels and stories on instagram and instantly fell in love with all the places she travelled and captured. I just loved the way she edits her photos and how effortless they all look. When I reached out to her about my wedding... in less then 10 days to plan it, she was so on top of it and spent plenty of time on the phone with me and helping me relieve my wedding jitters. Not only was there a fast turn around time, but my goodness these photos are just impeccable. I HIGHLY recommend Jessika. I am so picky with my photos and I cannot wait to work with her more in the future. Everyone who has seen our wedding photos all say that she is SO GOOD !!! Elegant, timeless, chic and overall beyond my expectation. I just want to say, if you're ever hesitant, Just Do It and hire Jessika!! I have no regrets and I am so thankful for her to be part of our big day !!

Jessika was phenomenal to work with! She was so helpful throughout the entire process; offering advice, recommending other needed vendors and reassuring me it would all work out every time I got into a panic. The two days we spent with her were a lot of fun. She has such a great, easy going personality which made us feel comfortable, relaxed and created genuine moments of laughter. Our pictures turned out STUNNING and everyone I know has been amazed by them. I highly recommend her and would use her to document all my special moments going forward.P.S. She makes really cool GIFS out of your photos which are super fun!

This review could be pages long because of how much we LOVE Jessika! To start off, our original wedding was scheduled for November of 2020, but due to Covid, we switched to August of 2021 in order for us to have the wedding we had been hoping for. So, we originally met and hired Jessika when she was living in Kansas City. We did our engagement pictures with her and they were DREAMY! She was planning to move back to her home in San Diego after our original Nov 2020 wedding, so when we changed dates, we were nervous that we were going to miss out having her at our wedding! But of course, she's the best, and worked with us to fly back out to Kansas City to shoot on our new date! Yay! Her vibe and aesthetic is THE coolest, and all of our guests at the wedding commented on how cool she was! Jessika, thank you times a million!! And to all of the couples searching for a photographer--she travels!!!
