About Jesse

Hey there! Photography has been a hobby of mine for 15 years, and its been my career for 13 years! I love to capture amazing images for my clients and strive to make every photo session as fun and comfortable as possible (Because lets face it, not everyone loves to be in front of the camera. Me included!).

My main focus on photography is weddings, elopements, family and portrait sessions. I've photographed over 400 weddings in my career and more family shoots then I can count.

Besides that, I am originally from Canada but moved to the Charleston / Beaufort area at the start of 2021. I love the outdoors and I am a huge animal lover. I have 2 Siberian Huskies myself and you are always welcome to bring your fur friend along for your shoot!

Session Info

I love to capture love, laughs and authentic emotions. I believe it is important to make my clients comfortable in front of the camera because it shows up in the final images. Before any shoot, I like to discuss what you want from your photos and come up with a plan. I offer advice on locations, outfit recommendations and I usually shoot around "golden hour" (about 90 minutes before sunset) to get the best light for your images.

I do offer tips on how to pose, but it's more like subtle suggestions so you still feel comfortable. Nobody wants to feel like they did during their school photos when they felt twisted and turned around all awkwardly! I usually will crack a bunch of corny jokes to get you more comfortable in front of the camera and I like to put you in situations that bring out authentic emotions and reactions. "Hold hands, walk towards me and make silly faces at each other" produces some amazing results!

My goal is to deliver images you will love for a lifetime!

Client Testimonial

Jesse was such a joy to have as our wedding photographer. He captured the mood of our day perfectly! It’s hard to find a photographer that is able to use natural light as masterfully as Jesse has. He captured so many amazing candid moments and even made us look so natural for posed shots. We are so happy we went with him! A definite yes!
