Back to the land of the living 🤪 I’ve been ignoring being sick for the last week but finally went to the doctor and antibiotics yesterday! I’ll be returning all emails today, If you don’t hear from me send me another message 💌
Loved working with these two lovebirds ❤️
On your wedding day, I'm not just there to capture all of those gorgeous posed moments (but believe me, we'll get those too! 😉)
I know it's corny, but I am there to capture the real EMOTION of the day. The emotion expressed and the moments shared between two people who are tying themselves to one another for the rest of their lives.
Like Jenn and Leon in this photo I snapped during their first dance as Husband and Wife. This wasn't posed - I didn't tell them what to do...Leon really was crying happy tears as Jenn held him close while they danced! This is all-natural love in it's purest and most beautifully organic form. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Photos like this just make me smile and sigh with happiness, because what more could you wish for in a partnership for life?
So if you're ready to invest in a photographer who will be there to capture all of the little moments as well as the big ones, I'd love to hear form you :) Fill out a contact form on my website by following the link in my bio!
Friends, this job, it takes TEAMWORK. And that is one thing that I actually LOVE about the wedding industry. So many talented people coming together to contribute their skill to bring to life an amazing day for our couples. I love this in-between shot I captured of @shineeventsaz
going the extra mile and getting our couple to and from photo-worthy spots. Plus, I just love these two girls, so anything to celebrate them is worth it!!!
It’s really unusual for it to rain like this in LA and I welcome it. Gives us a really good excuse to stay home, drink hot chocolate and rewatch 🔥Game of Thrones❄️
The endless possibility for cake decorations & combinations always fascinates me 🤩 Swipe to see the details up close from this Tahoe wedding 🎂
GUYS! If you've been thinking about doing an in home session then now's the time to book it! I'm offering $200 in home sessions that will be on February 2nd as a special Valentine's celebration 😍 My session are usually $400 so if you want some dreamy pics of you and your boo in time for Valentine's Day then get in on this and DM me! 😇💕
True story gloomy weather is my favorite, maybe because we hardly get rain around here anymore? But just as much I love it, I’m ready for spring to be here! 🌵🌼🌿 Who’s ready for those flowers to finally bloom, engagement season is here y’all! ✨❤️
I love close up shots like this, capturing just a portion of my subject. Granted they aren't what you'll choose to hang on your wall (full faces are good for that 😉), but they serve such a beautiful story-telling purpose when paired with other images when designing and creating an album. And also...can we just talk about @denisse_cerasani
’s lips for a moment? Cause...stunning!! ❤️ @thelillierose @shineeventsaz @omnimonteluciaweddings
Baby Conley turned One! So fun at this in-home Cake Smash & can we talk about this amazing cake that Mama @lovelypinkk_g
made on the fly! 👌🏻💙
If you’re from the Sacramento area and getting married, consider this gorgeous venue! Loved shooting this beautiful wedding here last year.
I love this romantic hotel for weddings and gatherings! This room is so beautiful!
Yay! Get to see my team over at @capturecreatestudios
today. Was reminded of this beautiful wedding shot for them last September!
My mission statement is simple... Spark Joy. My camera and photography business is simply a tool. Just a calling that allows me to capture the most intimate, exciting and memorable milestones of your life. ❤️ My mission is for the greater good, to leave this world a better and safer place than I left it and truly make everyone I come across feel heard, appreciated and valued.
I don’t tell every bride she’s beautiful because that’s what she wants to hear. I don’t tell every Mama that she makes the cutest babies because it makes her smile. I don’t tell grandparents how inspired I am by their family legacy because it makes them like me... I spread these smiles because it’s in my heart and Mama always taught me, “If you have something nice to say, don’t keep it to yourself. Share it.” So really it’s that simple, my mission is to share smiles, good vibes and help create environments that enhance and keep smiles contagious! These big milestones should not only look good, but FEEL GOOD! #mymissionstatement #bestgoals2019
Love little details like this ❤️. We (@wildoneevents
and I) used these flowers to help frame the invite suite, but I had to zoom in close to capture the texture and detail in them because they are just so lovely in themselves. Sometimes zooming in allows almost-missed details to be celebrated and enjoyed, too ❤️. @wildoneevents @foilandink

It’s crazy how time passes so quickly- I’m about to photograph baby Carter’s cake smash coming up! 👶🏻 ⏰ 😱 #jessicalillianphotography
One of my very favorite traditions is to take a look back on the previous year and relive a handful of my very favorite photographs! So today, I’m doing just that on the blog. Here’s a little teaser with my personal top 5 (maybe...it’s SO hard to pick!!) 😊. Find the link in my profile to visit the full feature.
A before & after for your Sunday! Fun fact, these were taken in a parking lot behind a restaurant, with the raddest couple! There's no such thing as ordinary or mundane spaces, I fully believe you can find light & color & beauty everywhere! It has been so unreal getting to do this full-time, and I'm so thankful! If you or someone you know is looking for a Wedding Photographer for 2019 or 2020, I would love to be considered to document your beautiful day!
For all of you tying the knot 💍 in 2019... take a peek at our album — a video encased in a book that will replay all the amazing videos from that special day 🥂🍾. → Follow the link in our bio for more. 📸 by: @marufilms #Papermotion

Who’s taken the enneagram test?? 🙋🏼♀️
I’ve been hearing this everywhere for months and I’ll be honest, I found it a little annoying. But in the last week I’ve been getting wayyyy too into it. (Like just-followed-6-more-enneagram-accounts-today kind of into it) I can’t stop reading about it!
What number are you?? Any guesses what I am?🤔
who else is dreaming of this? 🤤💫🖤
Congrats to all those couples that got engaged over the holidays! I absolutely love hearing your stories and can't wait to meet you soon! I'm so so excited for my first session to kick off 2019 this Saturday in Carmel!
Can’t wait to do nothing this weekend, the most I want to do is crack open a book! Do you all get like that after a busy month? Before I know it, I’ll be back to seeing my wonderful couples on their wedding day!

That embrace that feels like home. #engaged
Love love love these two cuties!! I met Marianna & Nick during the summer when I first moved to LA and they're the most rad people ever! They've since gotten married and I'm so freaking happy for them! So thankful for these guys in my life 💕
