"Jessica did an amazing job with our wedding video and even brought a drone because she was doing it solo and wanted as many angles as possible! She went above and beyond to capture our special day - climbing into crazy places to get a good shot, coming up with great ideas in the moment and helping my groom and I feel at ease and natural in front of the camera.

 

She agreed to a 12 hour day with me from start to finish with a smile and even personally came to tell me she was done for the night and gave me a big hug. She was absolutely amazing! I cherish the video and pictures she took that day because she was able to capture them in the perfect moment.

I very highly recommend Jess!! You won’t be disappointed."

JENNIFER KNIPPENBERG

"Booking our engagement shoot with Jess was the best decision we've made so far wedding planning. She was incredibly helpful at picking the best time and location and was so flexible and wonderful with getting us the the perfect fall shoot with aspens and mountains. She made us feel comfortable to the point where we didn't even feel like we were posing, which was great because both my fiancé and I tend to feel awkward when taking posed photos, which was our primary concern with an engagement shoot.

We received the pictures a couple weeks later and they are absolutely breathtaking. Jess captured our relationship and the gorgeous scenery perfectly. I can't stop looking at them and all of our family and friends keep raving over them as well. I have never felt more photogenic in my life and I'm so happy to have these photos to look back on the early years of our relationship. I immediately booked a second shoot with Jess and I can't wait to see how great those look too! I'm so sad she's moving from Denver, but I highly recommend booking her as your photographer no matter where you live."

SAMANTHA MCMILLAN

"Jessica was wonderful to work with. She was very responsive for setting up a time, planning, and answering questions. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera and spent a lot of time finding nice light/scenery. She was so easy and fun to work with prior/during/ and after the shoot. She was also very timely with getting our pictures back to us.

Our pictures are beautiful and catch us in natural poses/expressions. We highly recommend Jessica for a professional, no stress, easy and fun photo shoot!"

AUBREY KAPLAN

"Jess was so much fun to work with. She made our fears of being awkward and weird completely non-existent. She made taking the pictures fun and they turned out beautifully! I've had dozens and dozens of people ask me who took our pictures and how stunning they are."

RHEGAN WOLLERMAN

"Hiring Jess to take our engagement photos was the best decision we could have made. My fiance and I have no experience taking professional photos together, and we were both feeling bashful about the whole experience. Jess could not have been easier to be in front of when being photographed, and she did such a good job of making us feel comfortable and creating situations and shots that were natural and not forced.

Jess was also very flexible about meeting us wherever we wanted to shoot. We had an awesome time capturing photos in the mountains at sunset and at Red Rocks at sunrise.

We could not be happier with how our photos turned out, and we have had so many people compliment them. If you are looking for a fun, easy-going, and professional shoot, Jess is your girl!"

JESSICA SIMON

"I reached out to Jessica because I really wanted mountain pictures done. I saw her photos online and fell in love with her aesthetic and how she captured mountains as a back drop. She was responsive and flexible as we worked out dates and ended up with a late September sunrise session.

 

My expectations were exceeded as Jessica came ready to go, especially with music that I previously told her my fiancé and I love to help us feel more comfortable! We both had a blast and the session flew by. I was the most impressed with how quickly we got our photos back because they were so beautifully done!

I can’t stop staring at our gorgeous pictures - picking out the perfect ones for our save the dates will be so hard because we love them all! I can’t thank Jessica enough for capturing the love between my fiancé and I so perfectly!"

SARAH SAFFARI

"My fiancé and I braved the cold for our engagement shoot and Jessica was brilliant at capturing our shots, all while keeping us warm with laughs and dancing. We love how our photos turned out...they were so beautiful and really captured us as a couple.

With the cold, Jessica was game to shoot inside a vintage hotel (where it was a bit warmer) and those photos were some of my favorites. Jessica is a joy to work with and coordinating the shoot was a breeze. Thank you!!"

EMILY CARLSON

"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 :)"

ALICIA ANDERSON

"We hired Jessica for our salon photo shoot to showcase our work & get some imaging for our branding. Jess was VERY professional and helped bring my vision to life with always being so supportive & detailed on every aspect of the day!

I loved her work so much that I also hired Jessica for my Maternity & family session! My daughter is 3 and Jessica helped keep the day smooth and was so very patient and helpful throughout our photo shoot!

She even came so prepared that she shared a pair of hand warmers for my family while we warmed up because it was very chilly that morning! If that doesn’t express the kind of person she is, I don’t know how else to put it! Can hardly wait for our next sessions to come!"

LINDSEY RHOADS

"Jessi is so great to work with! Before family photo shoots I have been nervous about not knowing how to pose everyone or how to get my children to act appropriately.

She always makes it very laid back and playful and is happy to guide us. We are always blown away with how many fun candids she captures. It’s been especially fun when she suggests picture combinations that we weren’t expecting. We’ve done photo shoots with Jessi 7 times over several years and hope to do more in the future!

I have recommended Jessi to friends and will continue to because of the high quality of her work."

HANNAH HEUERMAN

"My husband and I hired Jess to capture our pregnancy announcement and absolutely LOVE how our photos came out! This shoot was so important to us, since this is our first baby, and having seen and been familiar with Jess’s work, she was my first and only choice I wanted when seeking a photographer.

We love Jess’s totally organic, candid lifestyle work and after having already done engagement and wedding shoots with other photographers in the past, it was important for us to find a photographer who wasn’t going to force anything too posed or stiff. We would recommend Jess to anyone seeking the same fun, natural experience!"

DAENNA BLOCK

"Jessica was amazing to work with. She gave great tips as to how to pose and was so encouraging and enthusiastic! I loved how she made me feel during what could have been an uncomfortable experience. Jessica was up for using my ideas and put her artistic style on them, she made me look like a model, and my hubby LOVED them!"

STEPHANIE STAVIG

"Jessi was a dream to work with. She made me feel prepared for the shoot days before by asking questions and giving suggestions on props, locations, etc. I don't know how she did it, but she was able to capture two incredibly crazy dogs that didn't listen at all!

 

I was so worried there weren't going to be any good shots of us and the dogs, due to their behavior. Turns out, I am in love with every. single. picture. I am blown away by how natural they look and how comfortable she made us feel in front of the camera. I will absolutely be using her for all of my future photography needs/wants!"

JORDAN SAWICKI

"Jess did an amazing job capturing our proposal, engagement, and wedding day! It is clear she makes your day a priority and takes a lot of pride and care in her work.

She will be my go-to photographer for any pictures I need, her photos are phenomenal!"

VANESSA STEPHENS

"Engagement pictures can be super awkward but Jess made ours super fun! She was laid back and made everything extremely comfortable. Our pictures came out absolutely incredible!

 

I would recommend her again and again one hundred times over."

KARISSA

"Jessica provides amazing service with beautiful pictures. I love her aesthetic and the price was very reasonable compared to others! She’s amazing.

Jessica provided amazing pictures to our family. Her aesthetic is what I was looking for and works with lighting in a beautiful way. The photos weren’t cheesy and didn’t look forced. She captured our baby in such a special way, we will always cherish these photos!"

LAURYN SCHROEDER

"Jmark Photography was excellent! She was professional, flexible, and so creative. We absolutely love our photographs, I'd highly recommend Jessica without hesitation!"

KYLIE OHRINGER

"Jess was absolutely amazing! The pictures turned out great and she was a true professional!

Plus she has an extremely positive personality that made the experience that much better! I would recommend her to anyone!!"

ANGELA ARNESON

MYRRIAH LAINE DYRESON

"Jessi was absolutely fabulous! She traveled from Colorado to our wedding in Rochester, MN and endured the hottest and most humid day of late summer with us. She was very go with the flow and flexible working around everything going on. But she also guided us through our couples photos which we definitely needed. She even stepped in a few times to help things go smoothly and she didn't bat an eye when things got a little crazy.

She was also totally on board to try some new things - we did sparkler photos - and even those turned out great. I would definitely recommend Jessi as a photographer and I can't wait until we get her to take more photos for us some time in the future!"
