Hi, there! I’m Jesslyn, the human behind the lens and Queen of S’Mores. I have been a hiking and backpacking fiend my entire life and spent several years photographing traditional weddings — all of which has culminated into my passion for documenting your love in the places we cherish most. As someone who has witnessed first-hand those who have felt constrained by the expectations of a traditional wedding, I understand the desire to do things differently.
I like to think outside of the box and push boundaries, and I strive to be a resource for those who wish to do the same. For those who want to rise above the status quo to create a wedding day that is authentically you, I will see you through the entire process smoothly and effortlessly. Yes, this includes taking some epic photos of you in gorgeous locations, but I’m so much more than just your photographer! I will help you plan your elopement day from top to bottom via location scouting, planning questionnaires, personally tailored itineraries, back-up plans, vendor recommendations, and so much more. I also don’t shy away from being your professional pack mule, personal cheerleader, and Sous Chef de S’Mores. You get the idea — whatever you need, I’ve got you covered for a stress-free experience!
With my free time, I like to give back to the outdoor community — I regularly volunteer with local and national organizations, teaching others about recreating ethically and responsibly in the outdoors. Classes I’ve taught include backpacking basics, winter backpacking, map and compass navigation, Leave No Trace, and the Ten Essentials. I also donate my time, finances, and photography services to various non-profits and local community events (this includes a portion of all proceeds from booked elopements!).
