It is so important to me for couples to understand the aesthetic of my photography before choosing to work with me. I would describe my style as bright, natural, with just a little romance (and obviously a lot of fun ;)). The most important thing for me is to create TIMELESS and elegant images that show who you are as a couple or a family. My hope for your wedding portraits is to capture them completely true-to-life, without a ton of unnecessary edits (that will likely make them look dated in ten years). I want your photos to be something that you want to admire and reminisce over for years to come.
They've been planning and thinking of this day just as long as you have. First looks with parents get me every single time.
It's such a nice time to sneak away for a few minutes with just the bride and groom. It's also a nice chance for the couple to reflect on how amazing their day has been.
Being apart of so many wedding days has shown me how important it is for couples to feel super comfortable with me. Days where everyone is calm, trusting and flexible are my absolute favorite kind of days.
Each wedding day and couple vary so greatly. I believe in creating a customized collection with each couple that is tailored to the need of their wedding day. This allows their day to feel relaxed, not rushed and for my couples to be fully present in the parts of the day that are truly important. Each wedding collection includes a complementary engagement session and hourly coverage from half day coverage to full day coverage.
Engagement and couple's portraits are truly my most favorite thing to photograph. You get to control the environment, the light and create beautiful, creative images with your loved one. These sessions are typically two hours and allow for up to three outfits. These sessions typically take place on weekdays!
Seniors!!! I want to hear from you and have some great new and exciting things to share. Every senior session comes with a professional hair and makeup application which makes your session so much less stressful. We customize your session together, from outfits, to locations and more! And as always, an unlimited amount outfits are welcome ;)
There is nothing I love watching more than my couples who start as bride and groom, expand to owning pets, to having their own children and beyond. I love photographing all of these milestones and would LOVE to hear about any kind of session from Maternity + Newborn Lifestyle, and more. Special pricing for past wedding couples is also a perk ;)
It's truly an honor to have been featured by a few of my very favorite websites and magazines. See a few here!
Hiring Jess as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. We knew we had to have her the second we came across her incredible work. Her insane talent, kind heart, and patience made our wedding day (and all moments leading up to it!) perfect. She helped to keep our timeline running smoothly, and felt like a part of our family on our special day. Her photos take our breath away and help us relive the best day of our lives. We are so lucky to have her as a friend for life!
Since the first day that we met for our consultation Jessica was by my side every step of the way! When it came to the tedious details of wedding planning she offered advice and encouraged me to trust my instincts as well as make plans for the what if situations that we all have with Nebraska weather. On the morning of our spring April wedding I came to accept that fact that there was an active blizzard happening. When Jessica arrived to my room she reassured me that everything was going to be beautiful and that we had planned for a situation just like this and she was right. Jessica saw the true essence of the relationships with our friends, the laughter with my sisters, the feelings for the man I would call my husband, and the fun of our guests celebrating a night dedicated to love.
After searching tirelessly for a wedding photographer we finally found what we were looking for in Jessica Blex. Her work stood out by a mile and I knew instantly that we had to have her! All our memories from the engagement shoot to our wedding day have been captured perfectly from start to finish. Jess’s unique use of light and gorgeous tones make our wedding look like a beautiful fairytale! We felt that Jess really made the effort to get to know us and ensured that the photos of our wedding reflected our personalities which offered a really amazing personal touch. Jess is a also the absolute best to have as part of your special day and is clearly so passionate about what she does. She genuinely turned into more of a maid of honor than just our photographer!! Her friendly disposition, seemingly infinite supply of energy and undeniable sense of fun allowed us (even my husband) to completely relax in her company and be our true selves in front of the lens. Everything was perfect, from the communication, quick turnaround and a priceless amount of memories that we will treasure forever.
