Do you want a new best friend? Or at least someone that makes you feel like you’ve known them your whole life and it shows in their work? That’s Jessica Roberts. From the very first email to the album delivery she made the entire process exciti...

Jessica was amazing to work with for both our engagement photos and wedding day! My husband and I are camera shy, so Jessica kept us joking around and relaxed for our engagement shoot. I asked her for the golden hour/twilight look and she absol...
utely nailed it!
Prior to the wedding she helped us with a day-of timeline which was critical! For the wedding day, she was both professional and like having another friend with me. My whole family commented on how great she was to work with. 100% worth the investment for photos we'll cherish for a lifetime. I am in complete awe of the memories she captured and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a fun and highly skilled photographer!

Picking a photographer for our big day was truly one of the hardest things, but Jessica made that easy! I have seen so many wedding photographers in action, but she truly is the only one I’ve seen be creative and not stick with the normal “rehe...
arsed” poses. She truly captured our day beautifully, we still have people tel us 8 months later that our wedding pics are the best they’ve ever seen and they should be in a magazine! Let me tell you- she’s so fun and will get you laughing! She caught our personalities perfectly and we could/would brag about her all day if we could! Do yourself a favor and book this creative, bubbly, hilarious, and life of the party photographer!!!!

Jessica was the best decision we made for our wedding. I knew I found my dream photographer a year prior after seeing her work, and I emailed her the day I saw a picture of her giving a bride her own shoes because the bride's feet hurt. That is...
exactly the type of photographer Jessica is, the best in every sense of the word. She was a joy to talk to leading up to the big day, she made our photos fun and everyone involved told me how great she was. I am quite the happy crier (understatement) and she would help fix my makeup and make sure I was always looking my best. and I had so much fun giving her a bunch of personal stuff for detail shots and loved seeing all the creative ways she used them!! And this is all a lead up to talking about her photos! after seeing them we were blown away. Seriously, we went back to our hotel room on our honeymoon so we could look at them over and over, they were so beautiful. We have so many beautiful portraits that I can't even decide which ones to order yet! I am so happy we had Jessica the whole day because we can remember every detail of the best day of our lives. All I can say is THANK YOU Jessica and to all future brides, you will be in the best hands possible. Get ready to have a blast with an amazingly talented photographer with photos that will take you right back to your wedding day so you can relive the magic every time you see them <3

Bonus - when you book Jessica Roberts, she mails you this awesome, custom "Wedding Experience" magazine including info on engagement photos session, wedding day timeline, important wedding day details, ordering albums, and more.

ng photography dreams come true! For engagements, bridals, and the wedding, I fully trusted Jessica to work her magic! She would tell us exactly how to pose and made us feel comfortable, when we had never been comfortable in front of a camera before. She's so much fun to be around and we became instant friends, which I was so thankful for. She educates her brides and walks them through the entire process, paying special attention to every detail. She gets to know her brides personally and then develops a timeline to make every desire possible. During the pandemic crisis, Jessica never left my side and worked with me to find alternate dates for bridal portraits and the wedding. She was my go-to person for everything and was always so patient and understanding! On the big day, she was incredible and even when our timeline got thrown off, she found a way to make it work and fit everything in! All of our images are absolutely gorgeous, far beyond anything that I could've ever imagined! She is very thorough during her editing process and produces the highest quality images, all in a very timely manner. Her online album access is super easy and user-friendly! You can even purchase prints and albums directly through her gallery. I could not be more pleased and thankful to have such an amazing photographer and friend to share this process with from start to finish!

I’ve been meaning to write this for a while. Seeing as how it’s almost been a year since my wedding, I figure now is as good of a time as any. If you choose Jessica as your wedding photographer, you won’t regret it. She is the best photographer...
out there, not only because of the quality of her work - which is AMAZING! She will go above and beyond for you. Trust me, she waded in a creek to get the perfect shot of me and my husband, she drove her car around to let us take pictures, because I forgot to clean out mine, she made me laugh when I turned into a crazy bridezilla- and somehow got the most amazing pictures, where I genuinely look happy. To top it all off, choose her because she knows what pictures will be important to you years down the road - and she won’t hesitate to capture them. I lost my grandfather this past week, and I just wanted to see his face again. I looked back at our wedding pictures to find countless images with him. I wouldn’t trade them for the world, and I didn’t even know I needed them. She truly is the best investment we made on our wedding day.

r kind of person. We ended up meeting at a Panera where she introduced me to their Mac and cheese and I never turned back (from the Mac and cheese or from Jessica—she was the perfect fit for us, haha!). My husband and I were both nervous about our engagement shoot because the thought of having a photographer follow you around while you’re supposed to be all lovey dovey is painfully awkward AF, but Jessica was super fun and funny and immediately made us feel comfortable. Throughout our almost two year engagement, I’d text Jessica any questions I had about the planning process because our planner wasn’t helpful and she would answer them all immediately and give the best pro advice. She is basically like a planner and a photographer and your BFF all rolled into one amazing person. Basically if you’re anywhere in the Southeast (or even this galaxy), hire Jessica. She’s so talented and professional and the best EVER. You won’t regret working with her!
