Hello, my name is Jesse [Jessica Grace being my full name] I am a coffee lover, gardening enthusiast and professional photographer living in Surrey.
I have been photographing weddings for over 5 years now and I LOVE it. To be honest I just love taking pictures of people. People are my favourite focus when pointing my camera out into the world. Even better when it is a day full of love, emotion and beauty – what a bonus.
My interest in photography started when my Granddad gave me my first camera. It was a Pentax P-30 which was a body that you had to manually wind the film on with every photograph that you took. I love to really capture a moment and perhaps this has filtered down from my love of condensing memories to one roll of film. Aside from photography I love to be outdoors and gardening is a major hobby of mine. I relish a Friday night in with Monty Don watching Gardeners World; day dreaming of what my future garden could look like!
My favourite way to spend the day would be a beach [preferably in Australia but an English coastline will do] somewhere in the sunshine with the sea lapping at my feet, watching the sunset where the margaritas are flowing and the conversation is good. I love pottering around a charity shop and knitting a good scarf beside a fire when it is blustery and cold outside.
Having trained at University in documentary film production and I have found that my style of photography is just an extension of this. I love to photograph natural moments as well as people and things in their many unique environments. I offer wedding photography in the Surrey area and the South East of England, but I love to travel and destination weddings are defiantly something I LOVE to do. So whether you are a same-sex couple or heterosexual, having an extravagant wedding or a relaxed family get together; I love to capture the people. Love is love and capturing this frozen in a frame is just an extension of what I am passionate about.
