About Jessica Billings Photography
This is a story of how skydiving helped me transform the approach I took to life and, ultimately, my business too. To rewind, I haven’t always been someone who is adventurous. Most of my life I followed the rules and stuck to my (very comfortable) comfort zone. As you can imagine, skydiving was so far off of the list of things I ever wanted to do in life – I preferred my feet being firmly planted on well-paved ground with plenty of lights and signs leading the way so I could just follow along and be comfortable.
The thing with that comfort zone is that it led to this constant tugging feeling that I was missing something, and not in the FOMO (fear of missing out) kind of way, but in the way that I genuinely didn’t feel like I was living my life to the fullest…
But then one day something changed… a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go skydiving with her and, as you may have guessed, my first reaction was to tell her HELL NO faster than I even knew I could text. Then that pesky a gut tug happened… and I was pissed… I was so mad at myself for saying no on something I knew, despite all of the fear inside of me, would completely change my life. So… I said yes.
A quote by Atticus that pretty well summarizes why I made the leap is, “she was afraid of heights, but she was much more afraid of never flying.”
Skydiving was the most terrifying experience ever, but it was also the most freeing experience – I learned what I was capable when I took fear and showed it who I am.
I want to help the couples I work with take their own figurative leaps out of airplanes. Through photography and planning I love that I’m able to take that gut-tug of wanting to elope and turn it into one of the most remarkable days of their lives full of intention and full of leaning into who they are as a couple. The things in life that tug at your heart strings are worth pursuing and if you need someone to take that leap with you and guide you along the way – I’m your girl.
