Arlington Heights Illinois Photographer

Your Go - To Photographer!

I'm here to create images but also to create memories. Long after the cake is eaten and the party is over, I want you to look at your photos and relive all the feelings as if it were the first time. I craft photos with purpose and part of being able to do that is to customize every session or event to your needs. I take time and care to truly understand what you are looking for in your unique event. Attention to detail and giving you a personalized experience are what I am striving for with every client.

I am so blessed to see your families and businesses grow year after year for all your occasions. Whether you're getting married or just had a baby or need branding photos for your company - I am here for it!

If you're looking for a "go to" photographer who is attentive and takes care of all your photo needs - that's me!

Here For All Your Occasions

"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%!

I love the way desert plants look on my desk and they still love me back when I don't water them!

"Jessica’s experience, creativity, and flexibility helped capture some amazing moments. It has been really hard to try and pick which ones to print. She also went along with some impromptu requests during our sessions. We can’t thank her enough for helping capture some great images of our combo engagement / wedding session. Looking forward to working with her again." - Margie P.

I can't wait to hear from you!
