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. I currently commit to a limited number of weddings per year to ensure that your day remains a priority. 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 a lasting relationship 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 your love story.
Our style is deeply ingrained in a storytelling approach. While we are happy to grab the formal & beautifully posed images, my goal is to also capture the true moments and the emotion of the day. Of course, I am there to photograph the “big” moments like your first kiss as newlyweds, but I also want to capture the little moments just as much. I 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. I’m 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…I want to look for that moment when you exchange a small look of happiness when you realize that you now have the rest of your lives together to adore & support one another.
Your wedding is more than just pretty pictures – it is also all the moments in between the poses.
We are a Lifestyle Wedding Photography team based in Springfield, Missouri. Our images have been described as authentic, emotional, romantic & timeless. I love making real connections with my couples and bringing out their personalities in my portraits. I strive to create images that evoke feelings of genuine love & affection while telling the story of your wedding day in the best way possible. Our wedding collections include myself (Jessica) and an assistant photographer, high-resolution images, and an online gallery. I make it simple for my couples so we don’t have a lot of complicated collections, However, I will be more than happy to customize any collection to meet your specific needs. All you have to do is ask!
Factors that set JYP from others:
- In less than 6 years after relocating to the Springfield, MO area we were honored to be awarded 5 years running in the top 5% of local Wedding Photographers by the very popular wedding planning website WeddingWire for outstanding customer reviews and received The Hall of Fame Award from The Knot by winning Best of Weddings every year since 2017. We have a proven track record of outstanding customer service.
- Turn around time for your images is within 6 weeks from the date of your wedding, if not even sooner. Every image you receive will be edited and prepared for printing. Any additional or advanced retouching will also be performed on an as-needed/request basis.
- Each of our couples receives a personal client site where they can keep track of their contract, payment plan, and any applicable questionnaires. We only require a $500-$750 retainer to book and hold your date! The remaining balance can be set up in a payment plan to best fit your needs.
