Jay Dee Photography

Charleston Photographer

Hey there, I’m Jessica, a Charleston based photographer, with a fierce love for storytelling, fostering memories, and capturing those moments that you will want to treasure forever. I love traveling everywhere and anywhere, talking with my hands, buying plants (and attempting to keep them alive), and spending as much time as I can with my loved ones. I have lived in Boston, Paris, and New York City, and am now lucky enough to call Charleston home, while also still traveling the world for my clients. You can usually find me on my back porch in downtown Charleston, right next to my favourite little park.

So why work with me? I don’t want to just photograph your story. I want to listen to your story. I want to capture all those moments that make the two of you, the two of you. From our first emails, to coffee dates chatting about your wedding plans, to capturing your biggest day, I want to connect, get to know your hearts, and celebrate this exciting season in your lives right alongside you.

I get to tell your story. And, I think that’s pretty cool.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… checking out the newest Charleston brunch spot, then spending the rest of the day at the beach.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… sneaking into a fashion show at Paris Fashion Week!

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… my travel bucket list is always changing as I cross new places off the list, but next up is Machu Picchu.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… the connections and friendships I have made with my couples.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… an Art Teacher at an elementary school

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… slow down! Your wedding day will fly by so much faster than you think. Make sure you take time to pause and take it all in.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… incredible food, beaches, and even more amazing people. Plus nothing beats that southern charm and Spanish Moss covered landscapes.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… hmm… maybe somewhere in Australia

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Top Gun

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… you know that scene in Pretty Woman where Julia Roberts launches the escargot at dinner? Yeah, that happened to me while living in Paris. It landed in the lap of a man a few tables down. He was not happy, and I was mortified.
