Bringing an easygoing, intentional, and fun experience to your Glacier National Park wedding.
Moody fall magic during Jordan and Chelsea’s Glacier National Park elopement.
You’re planning a Glacier National Park wedding that’s as singular and spectacular as your love story. I believe the photography that documents it should be, too.
Connection. Spontaneity. Intimacy. These words make your pulse race and your heart sing, and you dream of a wedding day that celebrates these values. But in a world that believes bigger is always better (especially when it comes to weddings!), embracing these ideas means striking out on your own. It means tossing out the wedding planning binder, shutting down Pinterest, and even ignoring the advice from your well-meaning Great Aunt Edna. It’s new, exhilarating, and a little bit scary. And doing it all on your own can start to feel like a burden too heavy to carry alone.
Thankfully, you don’t have to!
As your elopement sidekick, idea machine, and hype-woman, i’ll help you plan and document a celebration that truly flows from your unique love story.
Even if your elopement is still just a vague idea, we can work together to paint the full picture! So, if your dream wedding choir is the sound of birdsong and breeze and your ideal wedding shoes are a pair of hiking boots, my friend, you’re in the right place! Together, let’s craft an elopement you’ll never want to forget and document it through photographs that ensure you never will.
When I was little, I always followed the rules. As an adult, I help couples like you break them on the reg! What changed? It’s a LONG story, and an impulsive decision to go skydiving definitely had something to do with it. But most of all, my passion for unfettered, unrestrained love stories like yours tugged me toward a life spent documenting “I do”s in the most breathtaking landscapes across America and beyond.
Known for wearing cozy beanies in every shade, scoping out hidden gem locations, and creating backup plans for my backup plans, I expertly blend planning with spontaneity to create the perfect elopement adventure. I am proud to deliver a photography experience that’s about so much more than the photos we take. So, whether you’re already planning your perfect elopement along the shore of Lake McDonald or desperate for someone to guide you through every step of this whole getting-hitched-in-Montana thing, I’m here for you. I can’t wait to explore the possibilities with you and bring them to life in a way you’ve never even imagined. Let’s dive in!
Hey, I’m Jessica! But you can call me Jess.
“Since it was only going to be my husband and me on our wedding day, our photographer needed to be someone we trusted and felt totally comfortable sharing such an intimate day with. Jess was exactly that. She felt like an old friend from day one and genuinely supported and celebrated every moment with us. There was no awkwardness, just smiles and laughs all day, and our photos reflect that… We have found a photographer for all our future special occasions and a lifelong friend!”
Courtney and Chris
“From the very first phone call, I felt a sincere connection with her and really felt heard and that she would be the perfect person to bring our vision to life… Our time with Jessica, was split up over a two day period and we had such a great time together. It never felt like we were being posed or directed. We laughed and enjoyed each other’s company but was also mindful of letting my husband and I have our quiet moments. I think our photos perfectly reflect how natural and easy it was to spend time with Jess.”
Cami and Drew
“It was as if she became a sort of unique “professional” maid of honor- which is kind of when you want when there is only one person with you and your spouse to be on your wedding day! When the big day finally came, my husband and I were BLOWN AWAY by how professional Jessica was. Of course, she still felt like an old friend full of wisdom and creative ideas and exciting giggles, but the way she composed herself with this incredible calm and kindness and as more than we ever could have asked for.”
