SO, HI THERE!
i'm jesslyn — the human behind the lens
I am passionate about OUTDOOR EDUCATION.
I volunteer my time and expertise to various local and national organizations, teaching others about the Ten Essentials, Leave No Trace, map & compass navigation, and backpacking basics. With all this knowledge, I've put together some amazing resources to help you plan for your day!
As someone who roams the backcountry solo, has taught countless classes on all things backpacking, and is certified in Wilderness First Aid, I'm uniquely equipped to help you have a FUN AND SAFE elopement experience!
Speaking of experience, I also received my degree in Film & Photography, developing not only my technical capabilities but my style and artistic eye while maintaining a level of quality that uniquely captures TRUE-TO-LIFE imagery that you'll love — every time.
I am an ORDAINED OFFICIANT! No need to hire yet another person to tag along on your elopement day and get you married — unless you want to, of course! — I've got you covered.
more than a photographer
I like to PUSH BOUNDARIES and my goal is to be a resource for those who choose to walk the paths less traveled. You want nothing more than to escape the trappings of tradition and do what feels right for you but with so many vendors saying no to these ideas, it can feel impossible. That's where I step in to emphatically tell you HELL YES! This involves taking amazing photographs for you, but also includes:
You want to RISE ABOVE THE STATUS QUO to create something that's true to you and I will see you through the entire process smoothly and effortlessly, whatever that might entail!
queen of s'mores
I have spent my time around campfires patiently honing this highly acclaimed skill and gleaning techniques from other s'mores masters, thereby perfecting the method in which I produce the quintessential combination of crunchy cracker, melty chocolate, and flawlessly oozy marshmallow for the ultimate s'mores experience. You won't be disappointed!
