I’ve been photographing our area’s visiting families and destination weddings since 2013 and find a bit of responsibility in making sure you enjoy Deep Creek to the fullest, and that you want to come back.
So here I am to make your picture-taking experience a breeze AND make sure you have a good time in Deep Creek too! It's a bold claim, but I truly believe I'm the photographer with the most Deep Creek experience.
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 water, the waterfalls, the mountains in the distance, the evergreen-filled forest...they inspire me, and I like to step back and allow them to do so. We add in a couple or a family in front and the magic really happens. Smiling at the camera the whole time is not a requirement - interaction and movement are encouraged.
This will be an active button eventually
Maybe I'll link to a blog post that shares something personal. Stay tuned. :)
- ELYSE AND MICHAEL
Oh em gee, wow! These are perfect. I love every single one of them! I can't tell you how much Michael and I love these pictures! I have shared the email with my family and bridal party because you went above and beyond and took pictures of everyone, not just myself and Michael. I am so so pleased... I can't pick a favorite because there are too many! Jessica, I am just so tickled... you have helped to make out day so special and captured moments that we did not even know occurred!
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!
- Jessica and brandon
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!
