Southwest Missouri Engagement & Wedding Photography
Available for Travel & Destination Weddings!
Jessica Yahn Photography is an award-winning and internationally published wedding photographer, based out of Springfield, Missouri. But we happily travel wherever your love story takes us - whether that is a downtown coffee shop engagement session, a field at sunset, or across the ocean for a Caribbean destination wedding. We want to tell YOUR love story!
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, which is why I am so happy that you are considering including us to be a part of it. We currently commit to a limited number of weddings per year to ensure that your day remains a priority. Authentic photography is all about connection and your photographer will be one of the biggest and longest-lasting connections you’ll share with any of your wedding vendors. I strive to create beautiful portraits, but also lasting relationships with my couples. When you book with us, you are not just a client, you become part of the JYP family! I am honored to have the opportunity to laugh…to cry…to share in your love story.
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."
"Working with Jessica was an absolute dream. She is so customer focused and made every element of engagement and wedding pictures fun and easy. The quality of her work is beyond description. She never made me feel like just another bride... You’re doing something wrong not going with her as your photographer.”
"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!"
“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.”
"I absolutely loved working with Jessica and Chrystal! We met them the day of for our engagement photos and had such a great experience. They are very personable and easy to work with. Ricky and I had never been photographed before so we were nervous at first, but they made us feel more comfortable. For our wedding, they made the photography very painless! The photos turned out absolutely stunning! We will definitely be calling them back for future photographing sessions!
I'm Jessica! I am the proud wife of a military veteran and the mom of two crazy monkeys disguised as children. I am originally from a tiny town in Missouri. And when I say tiny - I mean it. I only graduated high school with about 50 people (and 5 of them were named Jessica).
We spent about 5 years in Hawaii and Washington where I had the honor of photographing many military families and homecomings. This is when I realized that while I loved the cute kids - making time to get photos of the parents was where my heart found happiness. There is something so amazing about finding and honoring the connection of two people in love.
As soon as the military gave us a date for returning to Missouri - I began transferring my photography business back to Missouri. I had my first Missouri wedding booked while we were still 2,000+ miles away in Washington. After over 8 years of focusing on engagement and wedding photography around Springfield, MO, - I've never looked back. Photography is so much more than just a job to me, it is a life source. I truly feel at home when my camera is in my hands. While I have had years of training and education - I am constantly striving to learn more about this art form - because to me I will never know enough.
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 originally dreamed of becoming a photographer for Rolling Stone magazine!
I believe that music heals the soul.
99.99% of my closet is black (or shades of black) clothing. It is literally a big deal if I show up anywhere with color on.
When I'm not listening to music or podcasts - I am binge-watching (listening?) to 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 tear up 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.
