"What is your favorite thing about being a photographer?"
That's easy! I get to connect with people through the happiest, most memorable moments of their lives. Who doesn't love seeing the bliss of someone's wedding day or the energy of a highly anticipated event? It's so special to share in that with my clients because I am cheering right there for you! Photography is so much more than photos to me. It's about turning a moment in time into something crafted with purpose and meaning. It's about sharing these photos for generations to come.
"Why did you become a photographer?"
Before I was a photographer, I was a high school biology teacher and then a clinical supervisor for a small doctor's office. I started taking some photography courses as a hobby. In that time, I met and trained with a respected wedding photographer who had been in the industry for over 50 years. I fell in love with everything about photography and eventually decided to pour myself into JMP 100%!

Things I Love
I love the way desert plants look on my desk and they still love me back when I don't water them!
Jessica is beyond words AMAZING. My husband and I had the pleasure of having Jessica take our engagement and wedding photos. Since the beginning of our journey, we felt so taken care of and trusted Jessica with our photos. The way it was so natural to pose and have her take our photos was so fun. She was able to make us laugh and capture the love we have for one another. With our wedding she was right by our side and captured such beautiful, important, and fun shots of our wedding. Her timeliness is impeccable and the whole process of getting our photos and booking her was so easy. Her communication was amazing!!
