Jessica here! Ready to bring some fun and excitement through color, beautiful scenery, and this place we call home - Deep Creek, Maryland!
Hello, HI and hoolllerrr! Thanks for visiting JFP!
I’ve been photographing Deep Creek's visiting families and destination weddings for over a decade. It's a bold claim, but I believe I'm the photographer with the most Deep Creek experience...
And that means we're not only going to create beautiful pictures, but I'm also going to make sure you enjoy Deep Creek while you're here, too.
Deep Creek in Garrett County, MD… the westernmost part of the state! Where the mountains meet the lake and families and friends come to celebrate!
Jessica Fike! It used to be Vilella, people always had a hard time saying and spelling it. Viva Italia!
I'm thinking about working, ha! Also trying to get my kids up and out the door so we can enjoy this place and the wonderful people here. Let’s meet our friends at the park, let’s go somewhere new! So maybe if I’m not working or thinking about work, I’m planning activities.
To photography....it's all about the light! Without light, there's no photos. Without GOOD light, there's bad photos...or at least photos that don't show off my subjects well. Early morning and evening sunlight are top priority, then comes finding the best backdrops, and we've got plenty of those here. The lake, the waterfalls, the mountains in the distance, the evergreen-filled forest...they inspire, and I like to step back and allow them to do so. Add in a couple or family and the magic really happens. Note: Smiling at the camera the whole time is not a requirement - interaction and movement are encouraged. That's when my favorite photos are achieved.

"I just wanted to let you know that I keep wedding pictures as the background on my computers at work and I am always getting compliments and questions from coworkers about them. There is one picture in particular that receives the most admiration and praise. It is the one of Karen and I at the top of the falls holding hands and looking at each other. People LOVE that photo! Just wanted to pass that on and let you know we are still very happy with our photos and how well you captured our day."
Jessica is amazing and she made us feel so comfortable! Having her capture our wedding was like having my best friend with me for every moment! Jessica's photos are fun, whimsical, and sophisticated!
We are not a stoic couple and did not want posed (or trying-too-hard) photos! Jessica was able to capture our personalities and the elegance of the day! I can't stop looking at our photos!

The best decision I could have made for my wedding was hiring Jessica Fike as a photographer! I was in a wedding prior that she was a photographer for and seeing how organized and easy and strategic she was to work with is what convinced me! She makes you feel so comfortable and helps teach you how to pose and smile and look so natural! She keeps you on schedule throughout your day and captures so much emotion in her photos. She is worth every penny plus more!
