Photograph by Kate Scott Photography

Where to start…. I have been photographing beautiful couples for over 5 years now, and still get excited every wedding I shoot. Everyone is different and I love getting to know the couple and be part of their day, it’s an amazing job to be around people who are celebrating their happiest day. I remember my first wedding in Cyprus for my friend and since then have photographed in various venues in the South East and I’m even lucky enough to have shot weddings in Lake Garda,  Sorrento, New York, Ibiza & the South of France.

I studied Photography at Southampton University, and left starting a job with John Lewis as a Digital Retoucher, Production Assistant, Assistant Photographer, Junior Web Designer and now a freelance Photographer and Web Designer.

As well as weddings I photograph babies, couples, families and bands. 2 years ago I had the chance to photograph Shane Richie and The Prelude, and my photographs have been featured in Hello Magazine and on BBC’s The One Show.

My style of photography is relaxed and informal, I like to capture the day and not control it, I have often had people say ‘I didn’t realise you were there’ I am an observer and love to capture moments that are fleetingly forgotten.

Packages start from £1350, please contact me for further details x

 

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

Jess arranged for an engagement shoot so we could meet her before and get more comfortable in front of the camera. Straight away we felt really comfortable with her. On the day of the wedding she was punctual managed to blend in so well and wasn’t intrusive at all. She was very patient and happy to take lots of extra group shots. Photos sent within 4 weeks and they are amazing. They came in a beautiful hand sewn cloth bag with a personalised button and hanging heart. Fab little touches.

“Jessica is an extremely talented photographer. She was efficient, thorough and unobtrusive. The end result of the photographs and album are of a very high standard.”

Jess was a brilliant photographer. We couldn’t have wished for a better one. Her ideas for photographs were amazing & having only met us a couple of days before the wedding she captured exactly what we wanted. She went out of her way to find places for pictures in different locations in New York and they all turned out to be perfect. We got our photo album package really quickly & the presentation was lovely and included all of the pictures on a usb. We were so happy we chose Jess for our day!

Jess felt like one of our guests at the wedding! She made us also feel so comfortable, I didn’t feel awkward posing in front of the camera. Jess done everything she could to get perfect pictures of our day including standing in the middle of the road, and getting into bushes! We get to keep every single one of our pictures and the albums are great, we can have different sizes and it comes with such a personal touch, a little heart cushion with our wedding date on!

“Jess was dedicated to our wedding before the day as she came to view the venue and discuss shots we wanted. On the day she was professional and worked with the ushers to make all the shots go smoothly. She stayed for the whole day and even got shots of the last dance! After the wedding she was quick to post a blog so we could have a sneak preview of some of the shots. We had our album and photos within 3 weeks of the day which I was extremely happy about. I would highly recommend Jess to friends”

Jess was amazing from the engagement shoot to the receiving the finished photos! Made us feel both so comfortable and made the whole experience a magical one! Can’t fault her in any way! Top photographer! Thank you Jess X

Jess was very friendly and worked in conjunction with another photographer who was lovely. Her photos were fun and we felt very relaxed with her. She sent us a lovely photo book, which was a nice touch.

Jess was amazing. We saw her photos from a friends wedding and loved the straight away. She was not over priced like some photographers and offered a variety of packages to suit everyone. Her photos were stunning and we got them back very quickly even though we were married right in the peak of wedding season when she was extremely busy. The main reason I want Jess to win is that she has just captured our day perfectly and given us amazing mementos of our best day ever!!

Jessica is a relaxed photographer who doesn’t mind climbing or getting on the floor to get the best shot. She has the ability to make you feel relaxed and like you’ve known her for years. She delivers quality pictures and her photography is worth the price.

“We LOVED having Jess as our wedding photographer. From our first meeting with Jess, we knew that she was the best person we could have to photograph our wedding. Her professional but friendly approach left us relaxed in her company, she made us feel at ease throughout our wedding day. Our wedding photos are now a beautiful memory of our special day and we are so grateful to Jess for capturing it in such a fantastic way.”

A kind caring and professional person bringing her own magical touch and style to our wedding. Jess was perfect from initial meeting and suggestions of what she could offer, to flying out to Ibiza with us and creating our dream wedding photos. She was discrete yet president friendly yet professional and has now become what I would call a good family friend! Highly recommended to anyone!

Jess put so much of her own time into just getting to know us. We were such an awkward couple when being photographed as it’s something we had never done. She drove two hours out of her way to come to Bournemouth to do an engagement shoot in our favourite spot just to help us get comfortable, and it worked a treat. We feel like we have hit the lottery with Jess. I am so so proud of our photos and I will be forever grateful for jess’s personal input. I feel like a very lucky bride.

Jessica photographed my daughters wedding last year and we were so happy with not only the photographs that she took but also her warmth and friendliness towards the bride and groom and guests that we also booked her for our wedding in July. As it was not our first marriage we wanted more informal photographs taken and Jessica did not disappoint us. Lovely memories of a special day captured by a lovely lady.

“Jess is an amazing photographer, we clicked straight away and she made taking the official photos so easy and enjoyable. We are so amazed at the value for money, professionalism, service, and expertise we got from her. I have recommended her to all the brides i know, and i will be getting in touch with her everytime i need some official photos done.”

500 characters isn’t enough to explain how utterly perfect Jess was throughout our wedding planning and on the day itself. Her photos captured the relationship between me and my now husband as if she had known us for years, despite us both feeling awkward in front of the camera to begin with. She was approachable, patient and passionate. Im sure anyone would agree this certainly shows through the lighting, colours and set up designs in her photos. I have had nothing but compliments from all.

Jess was a key reason why I had a fabulous wedding day. She is talented, creative and inspirational. We met a few times before the wedding and she put me at ease with her friendly, calm and intuitive manner. She instinctively she just “got me”.On the day she was invisible and she gently captured some amazing moments. Both myself and husband have laughed and relived every moment over and again through looking at the images she caught. Perfect!

Jess drove to France and for no extra cost but her petrol she bought an assistant to ensure every moment and angle was captured. They took photos throughout the weekend right through to the wedding evening when most photographers at friends weddings are long gone. Her style is unique but I think timeless so the photos wont date and the thought she puts in is clear to see. Jess also hand delivered our photos in an hand sewn pack with lots of goodies. Amazing attention to detail!

Jess was a fantastic photographer for my wedding. I really enjoyed working with her throughout the planning, the actual day and receiving all the beautifully packed photographs after. Jess has a perfect balance to ensure all of the photos were taken during the day but she never hurried us and kept us really relaxed. Neither my husband or I are used to having our photos taken but Jess made the whole experience fun and lively. I would highly recommend Jess

I emailed Jessica last year we booked a engagement shoot which was part of package. This helped us both get to know jess and the way she shoots pictures. She made us feel at ease and she was so friendly and nice. The wedding pictures are literally amazing we could not be happier she captured are day perfectly. Ever lasting memories of the best day of our lives so I couldn’t thank her enough for the amazing pictures. The photos arrived in a beautiful bound book with a usb and cd and web log in. x

“Jess was brilliant from the start of the day till , she was good with everybody at the wedding and has given us some stunning pictures . I cant thank her enough for capturing our day so perfectly.”
