Our style is deeply ingrained in a storytelling and natural approach. While we are happy to grab the formal & beautifully posed images, our goal is to also capture the true moments and the emotion of the day. Of course, we are there to photograph the “big” moments like your first kiss as newlyweds, but we also want to capture the little moments just as much. We want to catch you having an amazing time laughing with your friends while getting ready, or the flower girl twirling in her dress while she feels like a mini-princess. We're looking for mom or dad’s tears when they see you for the first time and those small squeezes of the hand from grandma giving you a little extra love & reassurance. And then after the “I Do’s” have been said, you’ve shared your first kiss and you get a moment to breathe…We want to look for that moment when you exchange a small look of happiness because it hits you that you now have the rest of your lives together to adore, support and love one another.
"Capturing the real expressions and true connections - the moments between the poses."
I'm Jessica, a passionate wedding photographer based in Springfield, Missouri, with a heart full of wanderlust and over a decade of experience in turning fleeting moments into timeless treasures. My life's journey has taken me from growing up in the countryside of Southwest Missouri to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, the bustle of Seattle Washington, and back to the rolling landscapes of the Ozarks. My style? It's all about authenticity, natural beauty, and true-to-color imagery that resonates with the depth of emotions. I believe photography is more than just pictures; it’s about creating a bond with you, making you feel like you're just hanging out with a friend - a friend who’s there to follow every laugh, tear, and tender glance. Whether you're planning an intimate local wedding or a grand destination affair, I'm here to capture the essence of your love story. Here, you're not just a client; you're part of a family that extends beyond the lens, where every picture tells a story, and every story is a chapter in this beautiful journey we call life. So, let's embark on this adventure together and create something extraordinary!
My primary diet consists of coffee…coffee….and well, more coffee.
I am an avid reader and chronic over-punctuator!!…??!!
I absolutely love my fur babies and we have more animals than people in our home.
I believe that music heals the soul.
I originally dreamed of becoming a photographer for Rolling Stone magazine!
99.99% of my closet is black (or shades of black) clothing. It is a big deal if I show up anywhere with color on.
When I'm not listening to music or podcasts - I am binge-watching Netflix & Hulu while I edit your photos. This means I go through A LOT of television series. Feel free to throw some suggestions out to me!
I treat all of my couples just like close friends, which means there is an extremely good chance that I WILL cry at your wedding.
I can’t wait to hear from you!!!
Lots of Love,
We only take a limited number of weddings per year. It is truly important that we work with couples who feel we are the best fit for them, and for us.
We would LOVE to hear more about you and your story. Fill out the contact form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
"I cannot say enough great things about Jessica and her work. I chose her out of six other photographers in the area I interviewed to come along with us to the Cayman Islands to photograph our wedding and I do not regret that decision one bit. If you’re looking for a destination photographer to take with you I strongly suggest bringing one that you know and trust. I love her work and it’s natural style which Is something I wanted. She listened to every question I ever had she followed a schedule and stuck to it she ensured that I got the pictures I wanted she was very easy-going. I felt valued as a client and not just another person to photograph or just another wedding, she truly cares about her clients and going above and beyond her work and getting to know both of us as a couple. That’s never something I’ve never experienced with photographers in the past. I will always continue to use her in the future. She was extremely ethical and punctual. I HIGHLY recommend Jessica, you will not regret it!”
“Jessica was absolutely wonderful! I could go on and on about her! She was great for our engagement session and even better for our wedding! We couldn’t be happier with our pictures! They are absolutely gorgeous! Also, Our family and friends loved Jessica at our wedding... they complimented on how nice and professional she was and how wonderful all of the pictures turned out! Not only have I found a photographer for all my future photography needs but I’ve also found a new friend. You could not find a better person or photographer to go with for your wedding.”
"Jessica was a dream to work with! She has an incredible eye for unique shots and is a genius with lighting. She ensured that my day was calm and fun. She was punctual and the whole day went off like clockwork. You cannot go wrong hiring her for any of your photography needs!"
"The first part of wedding planning for us was finding the photographer because it was the most important to me (other than the man I was marrying). I was prepared to search high and low to find the perfect photographer, but Jessica found us! After attending a wedding expo she reached out and offered her services. We met for coffee and discussed our hopes and dreams for our upcoming wedding. There was an instant connection! I told Jessica wedding photos were at the top of my priority list, because they’re what lasts forever. I can look back on those photos and remember the excitement, happiness, and pure joy of marrying the man of my dreams. I told her I was looking for someone to capture the little moments along with the big. Jessica promised us everything we asked for and, man oh man, she delivered!!! I cannot speak highly enough of her. Every part of the process was made simple because of her organization and talent. Every communication we had was prompt, thoughtful, and respectful. She listened to our wishes, offered her expertise, and created unbelievable results!! Jessica and her assistant (Crystal) were fun to be around and made our sessions with them fly by. They made sure every detail was picture-perfect… even during our freezing cold outdoor engagement session. If anyone asks me for a photographer, Jessica is the name I give, every single time. She signed on to do our wedding, but we are now her clients for life because no one will compare to the incredible job she does. Let me squash any doubts you have and help you with the best decision you’ll make when it comes to finding a photographer… just hire Jessica Yahn!! We are forever grateful to have crossed paths with her.”
