Florida Wedding and Elopement Packages

Let’s play a game: the sky is the limit and you’ve got an entire DAY of sunshine and shenanigans ahead of you - what do you do?

Spoiler – anything you want! If you want photos that reflect a day full of love, adventure, fun and spontaneity, then you have to DO the fun things that make you feel full of love, adventure and spontaneity. Toss aside anything that makes you feel boxed into expectations and get ready to embrace some hard core quality time with your significant other!

"Jessica was simply AMAZING to work with! We had an out of town wedding and were unable to meet with her beforehand but she made me feel so comfortable anyway"
- Abigail and Michael

Example Florida Elopement Timeline

Sunrise Beach Elopement

5am – 8am

We meet at your hotel for getting ready photos and detail shots. Then we head to the beach for an intimate first look and sunrise portraits.

8am – 11am

Your family arrives for an intimate beach ceremony. You two say your vows in the early morning light, then gather together for some fun “formal” photos as a group!

11am – 2:30

We head to a nearby marina and board your charter boat for lunch and drinks at sea. You two enjoy the views, company and salty air! Success!

"Jessica was amazing!! She was so helpful and understanding with changes and questions. COVID made a lot of things stressful with our wedding and we had to cut our guest list by a third, but Jessica was always there to help and the plan things as we needed. Our pictures are perfect."
- Dani and Jacob

You two & me? Our stars are definitely aligned if…

…if the thought of a big flashy ballroom wedding or a kegger beach party makes you gag a little.

It’s just kind of a fact, planning weddings both big and small comes with stress and an overwhelming amount of decisions. It’s pretty normal to want to stick your head in the sand instead and hide (and hey, we’ve got plenty of it here if you decide that’s what you want to do!)

You deserve to have a photographer on your side who can help you nail that laid back, sun drenched Florida wedding vibe.

  • I Support Local – Florida is my lifelong home. I have a tight-knit network of talented small business owners and artists to refer you to.
  • I Support Nature – Leave No Trace principles and respect for Florida’s natural resources guide my actions outdoors.
  • I Support You – I take a “permission first” approach to your day. I’ll never ask you to do anything that isn’t natural for you, and am always tuned in to your needs. Let’s make this a care free, meaningful experience where you leave feeling inspired and refreshed!

"I can’t say enough about how fantastic our experience with Jessica was. When my husband and I first began planning our wedding, Jessica’s portfolio stood out because not only were the photos beautiful, but we also felt that she really captured the couple’s personalities."
-Nicole and Brian

it’s me, Jessica

the wedding photographer who regrets her own wedding photos…

Sigh. Yeah, really. When I got married, I was clueless. I hired a budget photographer and spent the whole day trying to please everyone else. I’ve regretted that decision ever since. It’s the typical, “if I could do it all over…” story, and I’m fixated on making sure my couples never have to experience that.

Looking back, I realize wedding photos are like touchable memories; they’re what you reach for to relive the day over and over. In striking detail, they remember long after you’ve forgotten. So if planning this thing is starting to give you a panic attack, I’m here to calm you and make sure you learn from my own crappy experience. It doesn’t matter if you just need someone to gently nudge you in the right direction, or fully throw up their hands and tell you what to do – “real talk” southern style!

HOW IT WORKS

1. Book a Consultation – are we a match? Let’s get on a call and read the vibes!
2. Reserve Your Date – all it takes is a retainer and signed contract
3. Plan Your Timeline – we build a bulletproof plan to lean on
4. Enjoy Your Day – show up to make memories, not chaos

FAQs

1. Do you do destination weddings?

Yes, absolutely! Fill out my contact form and specify your date and destination so I can send you a custom quote.

2. I’m not from Florida, can you help me plan?

As a Floridian (born and raised!) I can absolutely help you. I’ll be your go-to for logistics, suggesting experiences for you to try, and connecting you with any other vendors (florists, officiants etc.) you may need.

3. Will you be the photographer shooting my day?

Yes! This whole operation is run by yours truly, and unless something really big happens, I will be the one who photographs your event.

4. Can I bring my dog?

Of course! If leaving your furry family member behind is unthinkable, then have no fear. There are so many dog friendly places to explore and we can make a plan that accommodates four paws (or eight, or twelve!).

5. How long will it take to get our photos back?

My turnaround is 6-8 weeks depending on the season. During high season, I will notify you ASAP if I expect a backlog, but usually I am able to get your entire gallery to you within the 6-8 week timeframe.

6. Are you insured?

As a legit business here in Florida I absolutely do carry insurance, that includes for my equipment. My husband would be a nervous mess if I didn’t!
