“This year, my focus will be on becoming a stronger storyteller with my photography. Ive already started making a few changes and one of them is the Adventure Weekend Session which will be an alternative, more documentary-based approach to the engagement session”. ~Jessica

What is the difference between an adventure weekend and a traditional 2 HR shoot? The idea of the AWS is that you, the couple, get to decide what adventure you’d like to go on. We would go on this adventure together for the whole week / weekend, and I would tag along to capture everything you two do. You can make this weekend as elaborate as you want to or as simple as you would like.  Anything from a walk through the forest, taste testing delicious food, cuddling up in a yurt in Big Sur, antiquing in a huge warehouse, hip hop dance lessons, or whatever your creative minds can come up with. I recommend doing something you’ve been wanting to do for a while now, or something that you love doing together. My job is to capture and tell the story of your adventure together. The only catch is that I would be around for the whole weekend so we would get to know each other very well, but we would have so much fun doing it!!

For a 2-hour, traditional engagement shoot, we will travel to one location, and while I would still like for this session to be memorable for you, I do not get to know you as well during these sessions. An adventure engagement session is different. I believe that when you try to live life to the fullest, everyday is an adventure, so an adventure weekend is anything that describes you!



Heather + Josh inside their hotel room in Charleston SC where they were vacationing for the weekend.



Courtney + Josh traveled from Charleston, SC to meet me in Asheville to be photographed in this amazing dome at Asheville Glamping. We also adventured to Looking Glass Falls in Brevard, NC for the second part of their shoot.



Beth + Mike own a bottle shop in Wilmington, NC and I went down to stay with them for the weekend and photograph the grand opening of Session Beer Market.



Mackenzie + Zach decided to venture to Lake Glenville and splash around on the lake for a bit, then hike down to Cullowhee Falls and have a few intimate moments with each other and mother nature.



These are just a few images of my favorite adventure sessions done in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.


If you have booked a wedding with me and decide to upgrade to this type of engagement session instead of the complimentary 2 HR engagement session the price would start at $600. There may be additional costs due to travel. We will discuss this further if you decide this engagement session is right for you!


Kind Words

Can we give more than 5 stars?! Jessica is absolutely amazing and everything you deserve in a photographer on your big day. From start to finish, she was everything we dreamed and more. She has a magical personality and the ability to make every person feel comfortable in front of the camera. By the end of the night it felt like she had been in our friends group for years and captured every moment perfectly. Highly recommend!

Hands down, Jessica is the best photographer around!  I cannot tell you how happy I am that I chose her and how grateful I am that she was able to so beautifully capture the best day of my life. I was very particular when choosing a photographer and chose Jessica based on her talent and her creative ability to think outside the box. I completely trusted her vision so when she suggested we hike to a waterfall in freezing temperatures in January, I agreed and it paid off big time. I ended up with an indescribably gorgeous bridal portrait that looks like it belongs in a magazine. My wedding pictures turned out just as stunning. She made my husband and I feel at ease, which translated into pictures that are truly representative of the love and excitement we felt on our wedding day. A bonus is that Jessica has a great personality and offers a calming presence, which is priceless among the hustle and bustle of a hectic wedding day. I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Jessica and I will continue recommending her to my family and friends!

Where do I start?? Are you looking for someone who's fun, innovative, and creative? Look no further! Jessica is an absolute pleasure to work with! She shot our engagement, my bridal portraits, and wedding day. Working with her was a breeze! She makes you feel so comfortable during your photo sessions. I cannot stress enough how important a good photographer is. Thanks to Jessica we were able to capture the best memories from the BEST day ever!
- Elizabeth + Manny
If you want the heart of a memory or event remembered, Jessica is the right photographer for you. My wife and I were married 10/14/18, and the first person that popped into my head for a photographer was Jessica. I have worked with her numerous times for other photo shoots and she has the essence to capture beauty in every shot. Looking through her other photos that she posts to social media always sparks creativity and awe. I will continue to always recommend her and Jessica for any special moment to be captured.

You should stop looking and book Jessica! Booking her for our wedding was the best decision we made. Her charismatic, fun, and down to earth personality made it easy for my husband and I to feel comfortable in front of the camera. On our wedding day, Jessica was extremely professional but also so personable I felt like she knew exactly what to do to capture the very best photos. Jessica is extremely talented and gets your photos back in a timely manner. I would recommend her to anyone. It was an amazing experience to have her a part of our day.

Jessica was the second best thing to happen at my wedding... behind marrying my husband of course ;) I was so stressed because my venue flooded and it was raining all week but she not only agreed to switch locations, she made all the stress go away. I'm still obsessed with our photos! 1000000% worth it. I wish she lived in Texas because I want more photos!!
- Alicia + Jordan
Jessica is one of the best photographers I have ever met. Looking through our photos, there was not one single photo I'm not in love with. My husband and I can be pretty awkward but the way Jessica captured us was awe inspiring. Our wedding album brought tears to our eyes. There wasn't a single detail or emotion missed. Jessica has a talent like no other to capture a mood. While the photos are beautiful works of art, what I love most is that you can see the deep love shared is them. Choosing Jessica will be the best, easiest decision in your process.
- Courtney + Josh
My husband and I wanted a photographer who would help us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and we certainly found it with Jessica. Throughout our engagement shoot and post wedding shoot, she helped guide us so that all of our pictures look natural and match our personality. She has such an amazing ability to capture the beauty of the surroundings as well. Our photos are the talk of the town, and I can't even count how many people called her and used her after seeing our epic pictures. I can't say enough about her and her work. She is just absolutely incredible
