That’s why I’ll make it a point to blend in and film like a fly on the wall. I’ll take time to remember your loved ones’ names, pay attention to their needs, and go above and beyond in every way to ensure you have an exceptional experience.

No rushing. No taking away from your day.
Just pure celebration.

A Unique Perspective

Expert Production

Receive a film that truly tells your story thanks to my well-rounded and intentionally-crafted approach.

Unlike standard wedding films and highlight reels, I’ll bring a unique perspective to capturing your wedding day. After 15 years of producing and editing TV shows for major networks like Nat Geo Wild and Animal Planet, I know how to meticulously craft consistently high-quality films.

So rest assured, I’ll spare no expense to create a film you won’t want to stop watching by capturing 4K visuals and crystal clear sound.

“Jessie and her team were the absolute best!

From the moment we began shooting with her we knew we had picked the perfect vendor for our wedding. And I cannot tell you how amazing her final work product is! The quality is amazing, the audio is perfect, and the editing is so clean. We couldn’t be happier.”

A Natural Approach

Films Rooted in Emotion

Raised by a psychiatrist dad and psychologist mom, staying finely tuned into emotions was ingrained in me at a young age.

Today, I intuitively know how to read the room, anticipate emotional moments, and capture them while making you feel comfortable. And not just the milestones, but the little in-between ones that occur throughout your celebration.

Those moments will become the framework I use to tell the story of your day in an impactful and emotive way.

“She was hidden in the perfect way.

But showed up whenever needed. Her and our photographer worked closely together which we loved.”

As someone who had my own wedding day captured on film, I have truly experienced how priceless it is to have all those special moments documented, and it is a privilege I will never take for granted.

A Little About Me

MY PASSION // Making you cry happy tears is what drives me. I want you to experience your day as it was and be able to relive your story without feeling like anything is missing.

MY HAPPY PLACE // Filming you outside in nature, whether at a waterfront venue during sunset, at a historic site, or under the gorgeous Spanish moss in South Carolina, I love capturing your joy amongst all that beauty.

MY WHOLE HEART // My husband and I have 3 dogs and a cat that receive endless snuggles when I’m not filming. Amongst producing and editing several animal-related TV shows, I previously created, produced, and filmed Give Me Shelter, where I filmed live rescues and adoption events. I am a huge animal lover.
