However you have stumbled across my page, I am so happy you are here. My name is Jess and I am a couples, wedding and lifestyle photographer at Jmark Photography. I have over 12 years of photography and graphic design experience, and love to use this experience to help tell unique love stories.
I currently live in Minneapolis, Minnesota but love to travel. I am a creative at heart and work to capture images that show personality whether that is through posing, embracing the location or lighting. If you're interested in getting pictures that truly show your relationship, family or are unlike any iPhone photo your friend has snapped of you, I am your girl. I promise to capture those beautiful natural and candid moments you'll want to keep/frame/print and treasure forever.
Jess was so great to work with for our engagement photos. Since wedding planning in 2020 is not exactly a stress-free process and many things are on hold, we wanted our engagement photoshoot to feel more like a celebration of our engagement and not just a step to check off the list. Jess was on the same page. She made the roadtrip to our special spot Taylors Falls/St. Croix Falls to shoot where we got engaged. She worked very proficiently so that we could fit a few different locations into our timeframe to get a good variety of backdrops, yet was very relaxed so we didn't feel rushed. She was very knowledgeable about lighting for both indoors and outdoors which helped us get the most out of our time and settings. Jess was always available to talk to me about my ideas for outfits or location ahead of time. The couple hours we spent taking pictures was even more fun than I expected! I was worried that we would feel cheesy or awkward, but it just felt like a fun evening exploring around outside and cozying up at a cabin. After the session, she sent us sneak peeks of a few favorite photos right away so we could share our excitement. She did a great job editing, I didn't need to ask her to change a single detail of any picture, even after she sent over all of the photos. I would recommend (and have recommended) Jmark Photography to anyone who is looking for a proficient and professional artist!
"Jess took engagement pictures for my fiancé and I and it was the best session ever! She is the perfect combination of professional and fun. Jess can make anyone feel comfortable, which results in amazing pictures that really capture YOU. She was amazingly flexible in helping us figure out what could work for both us and her, giving us advice on locations of where to take pictures but also letting us chose what we thought would fit us.
The only thing I was nervous about was whether or not my fiancé and I could look natural in the photos, and she helped us with that so much. Jess was able to make us feel so comfortable and gave us great advice on poses and movements that made the pictures turn out so, so amazing. She also got our pictures back to us crazy fast! Which was so fun because of how excited we were to see them. We really couldn't be happier we chose Jess to take our engagement pictures and are very much looking forward to having her there on our wedding day :)"
