Based in Central Alberta, I specialize in capturing candid, story telling moments that stand the test of time. Not only do I want my couples to love their photos but I also want to create an experience they will never forget. From style guides to wedding planning tips, I leave no questions unanswered. Stepping in front of the camera can be a nerve racking experience! 

each and every Candid moment


Red Deer, Alberta Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Which is why I make sure the entire photography experience is full of laughter and poses that look and feel natural. I truly enjoy capturing all the big moments in life! So whether your planning a wedding or creating memories as a family I would love to be on this journey with you!

more this way

I'm married to the love of my life Brad, and together we have two boys Grayson and Beau. I absolutely LOVE to meet and relate to new people from different walks of life and my job lets me do that in the best way! I realized my passion for photography back in 2016. Getting to play such a huge role on the most important day of a couples life is so special to me. From the early planning stages to seeing it all come together, I truly enjoy every part of getting to know my clients and providing them with timeless photos they will cherish for a lifetime. My style is very natural and true to colour with a light and airy feel. I think keeping things as natural as possible is what creates that timeless feel in an image. With me, you don't just get a photographer, but an actual friend... If you'll have me! 

I'm Jessica and I'm so happy your here!

We had family pictures done with Jessica in July. Working with her was absolutely amazing. We felt so comfortable to be ourselves and have fun. Our photos from her hang all around our house and we are so grateful for all the time, energy and effort she put in to making sure we had the best photos. We talked before hand about outfits and ideas I had and with her guidance and advice, she brought my vision to life. I can’t wait to have more photos done by her. She will always be our go-to photographer.
