What can I say? Jessica was AMAZING! When I first started searching for a wedding photographer I really wasn't sure what to look for and what to ignore. I got the usual calls/emails promising a great deal with added freebies only to be asked to pay over $2500 for things I didn't... Read More even want! Aggravating! A family member suggested I try her photographer friends, who ended up doing newborn shots of my baby niece. The pictures I previewed came out well, so I thought I'd give it a try. This photographer's deposit was only $200 (cheap, I know) and we set a date to do our engagement photos at Rollins College in Winter Park. Before we even got started, this photographer took out her iPad and pulled up her Pinterest board to get some photo ideas!! One thing after another should have told me this wasn't going to work out. First the iPad, then it was her inability to focus on the job, then it was not knowing how to take a certain photo because of the change in lighting due to the approaching sunset. Nearly 4 hours later, we took maybe six or seven photos. After about 2 weeks of waiting to see the photos, the photographer wanted to reschedule since she wasn't happy with the way they came out. What? No!! Imagine if these were my wedding photos she was talking about. There is no do-over! After some firm words, I was thankfully able to get my deposit back and started the search again. Much to my relief, I stumbled across Jesse Giles Photography almost instantly. Jessica was very quick with her email responses and was very sympathetic of my previous photography fiasco. After a few emails, we decided on a date for the engagement photos and talked about things I actually wanted. I had a good feeling about this. Jessica was very friendly and professional during our first meeting. She quickly went over her process and started snapping away. Once we got our photos back, I was in love. The lighting was perfect, the angles and energy she captured was just what I was hoping for. Of course she'll be my wedding photographer!! In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I sent some messages her way about a few last minute questions. Jessica never left me hanging and always had a solution. One of the things I appreciated most was her contacting me a few days beforehand to ask about our pre/post ceremony photos. My fiancee and I wanted to wait for our first look at the ceremony, but due to the time of year, it would have already been dark outside! I didn't even think to look into that, but Jessica was on top of it! She took the time to look into this and voice her concerns about having the majority of our photos being taken at night. What a lifesaver! We ended up doing the first look and our wedding party photos before the ceremony took place, and I'm glad we did. The pre-wedding jitters were out of the way as soon as I saw my husband to be and I felt more relaxed about the events ahead. Jessica was a blessing to my family and made the wedding day so much more enjoyable. My family and I cannot get over how wonderful the photos came out, how sweet Jessica was, and the lengths she went to to make our memories last forever. I know that we could not have picked a better person for such a huge task, and I am forever grateful for all that she has done. Now that the wedding is over, I will definitely keep Jessica in mind for recommendations and maybe even my newborn shoot when the time comes. Thank you so much Jesse Giles Photography!! You're the best :)

We are so happy that we chose Jesse Giles Photography for our wedding day! We didn't know what to expect, and Jesse was nice enough to take the time meet with us beforehand to talk and plan a bit. On the big day, she was completely calm, cool, and professional. She made us feel... Read More at ease in front of the camera, and most of the time we didn't even notice that she was taking pictures. She went above and beyond, even sending us a few pictures early to choose from to use on our "Thank You" cards. When we received the final photos, we were both extremely happy! The sheer number of images that we can now look through was more than I expected. We got a wonderful mix of gorgeous portraits and fun, candid photos to remember our day by. I would highly recommend using Jesse Giles for any event! Rachael Francis

Jesse was AWESOME! Our wedding pictures turned out beautiful and we received so many compliments from our friends and family. She is also a pleasure to work with, so attentive and quick on her responses. We always felt like she was extremely reliable and made us feel very... Read More comfortable. She listened to all our concerns (ex: double chin issues) and she was very attentive to that, giving us cues every now and then to get a more flattering angle. She was so patient and had fun with us giving us ideas for bridal shots and poses. We are so incredible happy with our wedding pictures. There was a mix of candid and posed pictures and the mix turned out perfect, it truly captured the emotions of the wedding. Her prices are also probably the best out there, I'm still shocked at how great the value is! Overall 10/10 recommend! Her pictures are incredible and she is a pleasure to work with!

We had Jesse take our engagement and wedding pictures in 2012. I thought long and hard about whether to leave a review or not, but the more time has passed the angrier I have been about a few things. The pictures we got were ok, but not great. She took a lot of our pictures... Read More up close, which gives barrel distortion and made us look much heavier than we really are. As I was expecting that she would give us 6-10 great photos, and the rest would be ok, she did meet that criteria. But, the part that still has me scratching my head was that she took the pictures with the most barrel distortion and had them published on a website called Pretty Pear Bride - a website for obese women. What bride wants to wake up several months after her special day to find that pictures of her are on a website for obese women? This one act has made us forever associate our picture with that. Finally the pictures were removed after weeks of back and forth with her and the website. Run!
