ABOUT meet Jess

My name’s Jess, and this is my story…

My father’s father was a photographic enthusiast. He was well known about town for his award-winning bromeliads. And even greater than his passion for these plants was his passion for capturing beautiful images of them.

My father is a photographic enthusiast. His muse is, and always has been, my mother. His photos of her express a love that I have aspired to my whole life.

So I guess you could say it’s tradition that has brought me to a career in photography. But I like to think it’s more than that.

Like my grandfather, I work out of passion.

And like my father, I photograph for love.

A passion and a love for beautiful images that tell a beautiful story. Your story.

Let’s get to know each other. x

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME…

I I WAS BORN
TO DO THIS
One night over a glass of wine, my dad told me the story of his grandfather, the traveling movie man who would take his cinema cart to rural towns throughout Australia.

A love of storytelling, imagery and travel runs deep in my family, and I cherish that.
II MY HEART
BELONGS IN PARIS
The name of my business is an ode to my heart's true home - the city of light.

Rue de la Fontaine au Roi was the street I called home on my very first visit to Paris, and now each time I return. Nothing moves me quite like that city.
III I'M A BIT
OF A GYPSY
Australia may be home, but there are few things that excite me more than jumping on a plane, camera bag on my back.

These days a lot of my time is spent on the road. So if you're making plans in faraway places, I'd love to hear from you. Let's make something beautiful together.

LOVE LETTERS

CLAIRE + STEVE We've been big old emotional wrecks thinking about how sensational everything was and went and how we feel and I just wanted to send you an email to tell you that we think you're fucking sensational.

Thank you. A million times thank you. You were the perfect fit - just like one of our mates and everyone was so so impressed with your artistry and professionalism and just general ass kicking qualities.

Yesterday you shared the most emotionally profound moments of our life and you did it with such grace and respect and joy and love. There are no words to express our gratitude.
We think you're a Beyonce level queen.

Thank you.
Best. Love.
Claire and Steve.
COURTNEY + TONY OMFG!!! How do you do it? You have blown us away!! Both in person and through your amazing photos!! We are so blessed to have met you! We feel like we have lost a friend! We miss you already!!!

EMMA + ALEC I cannot even describe to you my feelings when looking at these photos.... I am crying. They are so beautiful. I can't believe how perfectly you captured not only the stunning images, but "us". Alec, I and our families will never be able to thank you enough. The way you capture emotion is just extraordinary. You deserve every success because you are 100% one of the best in the biz. I just love how the portraits turned out at the Old Museum Building... And it didn't even matter about the weather!

Thank you so much, once again. I am sad now to not have an excuse to email you! We will be following your journey around the world closely and obviously stalking your insta for amazing pics!!

So much love,
Al & Em
AMY + CRAIG Jess' photos speak for themselves, so I don't have to gush over how brilliant they are because you've already seen them on her page and already know she is the best in the biz. She is also one of the most lovely and genuine people you will ever meet.

Everything on the day ran so smoothly and the with her ninja style skills, the photos that Jess captured we didn't even know she had taken.

Thank you so much for our photos Jess- we love, love, love them and we and our family will treasure them always.
KYRA + AUSTIN Oh my god. We are literally screaming over here (there's a few tears as well). These have absolutely exceeded our expectations, we are losing our minds with excitement!

Pure brilliance Jess - we couldn't have asked for better. You have captured such a good day brilliantly!

We are a bit lost for words. So impressed! You are amazing!

SARAH + WARREN Jess is a dream! Lock this girl down for your wedding, she's the best decision you'll make.

Being a photographer, everyone asks me who I could ever get to photograph my wedding. It was the easiest of choices for me. Jess is an absolute star. Her photos are phenomenal and it blows me away that she can make everyone look so gosh darn stunning. She works so hard and makes it look so easy. She charms the oldies and makes you forget you're in front of a camera. She finds a way to be in a million places at once, capturing every little moment.

So amazed by our wedding photos, Jess. We love you! xx (can we do it again??)
