Essex Wedding Photographer

capture the joy of your wedding day

Hi, I’m Jess. I’ve been photographing weddings for 6 years now and I still bloody LOVE it! I'm a wedding photographer based in Essex but I cover all over England so don't worry if you're further afield!

The number one thing I hear from my couples is that they aren't comfortable in front of the camera. I'm exactly the same. The thought of spending time striking poses makes me want to cry. I think there's only one way to photograph a wedding and that's to let you get on with your fun, brilliant celebration and I'll just capture it as it unfolds. No making you feel awkward, no asking you or your guests to do things that aren't you. Definitely no strolling across fake bridges or leaning uncomfortably on gates (what even is that about?!) Your wedding photos shouldn't take away from your day, they should add to it. And that is 100% what I'm about - down-to earth photography for people who want their wedding photos to look awesome without making you feel like a pair of plonkers.

Sound good? Let's have a chat and check we all get on.

Your photographer

I live in a little village in Essex, we moved here in a classic 'let's go to the countryside' lockdown moment. But it's been amazing. The Essex countryside has a real unexpected beauty to it, I love swimming in our local river and we're always off camping in the woods or at the coast. I know Essex gets a lot of bad press but I think it's pretty special Plus there's some amazing quirky wedding venues right on my doorstep. Browning Bros, Captains Wood, Lodge Farm Barns, The Old Parish Rooms, not to mention all the other great independent suppliers close by. All my couples get sent my little wedding planning help guide when they book me, which has all my favourites in. I love sharing all my years of knowledge. For me being your photographer is about more then just great photos it's about helping make your wedding as brilliant as it possibly can be.

"The creativity and care which goes into Jess' work is phenomenal, she has managed to describe the narrative of our wedding day so beautifully through the photos. They will be treasured. She was also a pleasure to have around on the day and George and I couldn't be more grateful."
