Desert Elopement Photographer - Jay Dee

behind the lens

hey there

I'M JESSICA

a Charleston Wedding Photographer

 with a fierce love for storytelling, fostering memories, and capturing those moments that you will want to treasure forever. I get to tell your story. And, I think that’s pretty cool. I love traveling everywhere and anywhere, talking with my hands, buying plants (and attempting to keep them alive), and spending as much time as I can with my loved ones. I have lived in Boston, Paris, and New York City, and am now lucky enough to call Charleston home, while also still traveling the world for my clients. You can usually find me on my back porch in downtown Charleston, right next to my favorite little park.

I know you have a lot of options for photographers. So, I am humbled you are considering me. I don’t want to just photograph your story. I want to listen to your story. I want to capture all those moments that make the two of you, the two of you. From our first emails, to coffee dates chatting about your wedding plans, to capturing your biggest day, I want to connect, get to know your hearts, and celebrate this exciting season in your lives right alongside you.

02        GUILTY PLEASURE

Fresh flowers and golden hour sunlight. Watching Seinfeld and Gilmore Girls over and over again. Oh and black raspberry ice cream in a sugar cone with rainbow sprinkles.

This guy. My sweet cat, Louie. He adores snuggles, naps, and food... mostly food.

01        PLACES I'VE BEEN

It's so hard to choose a favorite! Maybe a tie for Morocco and Paris. I also love the Greek isles...  and Iceland.

Pasta, pasta, and more pasta. (Coffee date?

Chai tea latte, please.)

That moment after the ceremony when my clients realize their forever starts right then.

01        TAKE A STROLL

The best way to see the Holy City is to get outside and explore. Walk the Cooper River Bridge for a bird's eye view of the city, stroll down the quintessential cobblestone streets south of Broad Street, or venture a little further north on the peninsula to discover Hampton Park’s charm.
