Expectations surpassed!Reviewed on 9/22/2014 Colleen K
Our journey with Jess Robertson began in my online search for a wedding photographer. It was important to me to find someone who would truly capture us as a couple with the photos not being too scripted or posed. I kept coming across styles of photos online that I liked, which kept leading me back to the Jess Robertson webpage and I thought, “I need to meet this Jess Robertson.” Albert and I met with Jess and her husband Stephen over a cup of coffee at Starbucks. It was like talking to friends we’d known forever. They not only listened to our thoughts and ideas (I had a lot of them), but they wanted to know more about us as a couple, our history and love story. We decided right away that they would be the ones to photograph our special day. It was such a bonus that Stephen was involved which added another thought process to the mix. They both had so many ideas! This enabled us to get a plethora of different photos. During our engagement shoot and on our wedding day, Jess & Stephen made us laugh and feel so comfortable (we were not used to this form of paparazzi). In planning a wedding, there are so many vendors to deal with. Jess did a great job at keeping in contact with us and was easy to get a hold of, which made one less thing for me to worry/stress about. They treated us as if we were the very first wedding they have ever photographed, wanting to do their very best and putting their whole heart into it. Jess is so thoughtful as she checks in with you often and goes above and beyond to make you feel so special. She even adds a few sweet surprises your way during the process. I think the hardest thing was trying to narrow down photos to print for our house as they truly captured “US” in each photo. We did a family shoot recently with them and were so happy, yet again, with the results. We are so incredibly blessed that our paths crossed and are thankful to have gained new friends in the process.
Amazing Elopement!Reviewed on 9/16/2014 jessica D
After months of planning our dream wedding, we decided on elopement and chose Jess Robertson Photography after reviewing literally dozens of photographer portfolios. We spoke to Jess in the weeks leading up to our wedding and felt an immediate connection with her as we envisioned our ideal settings for our pre-wedding day (Venice Beach) and wedding day (Santa Monica Pier) photos. Jess and her husband Stephen exceeded our wildest expectations – even accommodating a last minute change of plans for the pre-wedding day photos – relocating to Griffith Park and Observatory after deciding a photo shoot in Venice Beach wouldn’t work. We didn’t actually meet Jess and Stephen until the day of a pre-wedding day photo shoot – but after spending two days with them we consider them friends. Jess and Stephen were absolutely amazing – true professionals! They worked as a team to select breathtaking backdrops to stage our photos and the shots turned out better than we could have ever imagined. We would definitely recommend them – you will not be disappointed. Thank you both for helping to make our wedding a magical and unforgettable experience. All the Best, Tony and Jess

Love, Love, Love Jess Robertson!!!Reviewed on 7/13/2014 Kristen A
I had 5 months to plan my wedding and a pretty limited budget, plus an infant at home, so wedding planning was super stressful for me. Thank goodness for Jess! The one think I didn't want to skimp on was pictures, because after the night was over that would be the one thing I had left. Jess totally worked with our budget and created a package that worked for us. And after all was said and done, it was worth every penny and then some. Not only were our pictures amazing, but I felt like I had an unofficial wedding planner. Jess was there for me every step of the way, even if it wasn't photography related, because she knows weddings!!! Any little question I had she was there. And she kept the timeline of the wedding so well. I really think she was one of the main reasons everything ran so smoothly. So many people at our wedding came up to us to let us know how much they loved Jess and Stephen, and that was before they had even seen any pictures! They just fit right in. They were super professional, but fun at the same time. Working with them was a fantastic experience!!! And the pictures were pretty great too :)

Jess and Stephen photographed our wedding. They did an amazing job! Not only did they capture all the special moments of the ceremony and reception, they also took extra time out of their schedule to drive an hour further from wedding site to do a photo shoot on the beach in Santa Monica. It was so fun and gorgeous! They made us enjoy the whole experience! I highly recommend them for ANY photography needs you could have. The following year they did pictures of our newborn. He was a fussy little guy and they were able to capture him smiling in all of them !! Im soooo impressed!! Check them out!!
My perfect day.Reviewed on 6/19/2014
I always saw those amazing wedding photos but never thought I would have them for myself. I thought eloping sounded better, honestly. Well, it didn't work out that way for me and in the lon run I am happier because I would be without the wonderful photos of my husband and I on our perfect day. Jess Robertson Photography did such an amazing job capturing how happy we were that day. Jess captured the details I wouldn't have seen or would've forgotten shortly after because I was focusing on my significant other that day. Now I can look back on my beautiful day with these perfect pictures because of the wonderful job Jess did. I'm so glad we chose them and I recommend them to my friends who need photographers now.

I couldn't imagine using any other photographer for my wedding. Not only is Jess an amazing photographer with a portfolio to prove it, she is also very professional, creative, thorough, organized, and easy to work with. She dealt gracefully with my scatteredness and did wonders in bringing everything together. I would recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful pictures and a wonderful photographer to work with.

Jess and Stephen are not only a match made in Heaven, they are also the perfect to be your photographer. Mike and I had the pleasure of meeting them through friends and we booked them right on the spot. You know when you have a gut feeling about someone and you know they are honest, hardworking, and good at what they do?... Well they are it! They have the ability to not only provide you with these beautiful images that capture the moment every time, but they make you feel comfortable... they become your friends. We love the Robertson family and can't wait to capture many more great moments with you guys! Xoxo Amanda & Mike

Jessica Robertson is an extremely gifted photographer with a natural aptitude for capturing the most intimate and captivating moments. I felt so natural and comfortable on my wedding day, while Jessica snapped away. Some of the photos were posed, but most were creatively candid moments that my partner and I were so happy with the results when we saw our photos for the very first time! My partner is very uncomfortable being photographed, so having the right photographer to ease her discomfort was of utmost importance in choosing the right photographer for our wedding. The result: My partner and I loved every photo!!! Thank you, Jessica Robertson Photography, for your professionalism, your unparalleled talent and dedication to your artform, and for capturing the most incredible moments on our special day. We could not have picked a better wedding photographer! Michelle and Jill Angel
