After photographing nearly 200 weddings (#200 happened October 2018!) and over twice as many portrait sessions, a lot of personal connections with families and couples have been made, and thousands and thousands of pictures have been taken. At JFP, it’s about pretty pictures AND an overall joyful photography experience, and these clients have been kind enough to share about both…
…We decided to do our engagement shoot with a rather unusual (and large) prop and Jessica was completely open to it. She embraced something new and different and we got fantastic pictures out of it. We also had a lot of fun, which was unexpected as we are not particularly photogenic people. Jessica guided us through everything and yet the pictures look like no one was guiding us at all.
Jessica was also a resource in a lot of unexpected ways. When I had questions about photography items she was always on hand to answer them, but she went out of her way to connect me with my florist, hair stylist and calligrapher. Working with Jessica was kind of like having a Rolodex of fantastic vendors all in one.
The day of the wedding Jessica was both everywhere and sometimes invisible at the same time. I honestly have no idea how she did it. She and her mom captured amazing pictures but worked quickly so that we could spend as much time as possible enjoying our day and our guests.
I can’t even narrow my favorite pictures down to 50 because they are all so great. Where Jessica really amazes is her ability to get all the moments that you remember when you look back. I smile just seeing them and remembering the shared smiles as I walked down the aisle, why my sister was laughing or the look on my groom’s face during our first look. I will treasure the pictures and memories forever and if I was starting the planning process again today there is no one other than Jessica I would trust to capture it!
Love!!!!!! The pictures really turned out beautifully, Jessica!! Crazy how so many of those details came together at the last minute, and some how in your pictures it all looks planned months and months in advance. We really appreciated the fun, positive energy that you brought!
I love these pictures! The color! Ethan’s expressions! George! I love everything about them! I can’t decide so I am printing them ALL for my office at work!
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for what a great job you did photographing Stephanie’s and Henry’s wedding! You were a pleasure to work with and helped us so much on that special day. And the pictures have been great! I posted a bunch of them on Facebook and have gotten so many positive responses. I appreciate so much your professionalism and experience. You helped guide us through the day and everything went so smoothly. It was so great to meet you and to work with you!
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!
Unbelievable! To say we are completely blown away by your work would be an understatement. We were moved to tears. What a gift you have!
Jessica was the first vendor we booked. In fact we didn’t solidify our wedding date until we knew she was free! I can’t even begin to say how much we loved getting to work with her, and how seamless she made the whole picture taking experience. When we got our sneak peek of some of our photos, we were blown away! Dying to see the rest of them. Tommy can attest to the number of times I have looked back through the pictures and said “but look at THIS one…” again and again. So glad that we had Jessica to capture the most important day of our lives. We can’t recommend her highly enough!
WE…CAN’T…STOP…Looking at these photos!!! We are in love with them. You are truly amazing with that camera. We have to get this in one of the wedding magazines!!!
AMAZZZZZZING!!!! I don’t know how you do it but they are so so so good! G didn’t stop moving that whole session yet you managed to get some really amazing shots. THANK YOU so much. You know I will be blowing up social media soon LOL.
Thanks for capturing all the details! I loved looking through Tucker’s “getting ready photos” since I wasn’t there for that! It has been a pleasure working with you! Your attention to detail and responsiveness throughout the whole process is outstanding! You made our photography the one thing I didn’t have to stress about!
Thank you so much for all your talent, professionalism, and just generally being so much fun to hang out with!!! I hope we have another excuse in the future to work with you again!
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 e-mail 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 so pleased… I can’t pick a favorite because there are too many! Jessica, I am just so tickled… You have helped to make our day so special and captured moments that we did not even know occurred!
We both really wanted to thank you so much for the pictures – and for sending them over so quickly! They really captured the day. I just keep opening up the gallery and looking through while smiling like a mad woman. (I’m pretty sure my coworkers think I may be a little crazy. Ha.)
You’ve done it again!!! The pictures are gorgeous! I just want to take a moment to say how very fortunate we are to have found you. You have such a wonderful vision and do an incredible job! You’ve made us feel so comfortable and natural during the sessions and that means so much. I also can’t express how thrilled we are with the photos! We are beyond pleased with the photos from both sessions and we can’t wait to employ your services in the future. That being said, what does October look like for you?
Holy cow that’s a lot of pictures! Every single one is perfect! They are everything I wanted and more! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer…you are absolutely amazing and we loved working with you! You made everything so easy and go so smoothly!
Feeling the love from all of you that have been enjoying our wedding photos, and I thought everyone should know who deserves all the credit. So, Justin and I would like to give another HUGE thank you to Jessica Fike Photography for all of the wonderful pictures! We really could not have had a better experience with her and, as you all can see, she is seriously amazing at her job!! Thanks again Jessica!!
Oh my god!!!! I am so excited. I cannot believe these pictures are of me. Thank you so so so much. This makes me wish the wedding was tomorrow….I can’t wait to marry him 🙂 Of course i cried! I had to shut the door to my office around picture #25.
We just finished the slideshows of them ALL. We couldn’t stop watching. They are all amazing. It will be difficult deciding which to print. I love your DETAILS pictures. Thank you for everything. Your photographs would make an amazing magazine spread!!!! The lighting/color-EVERYTHING-looks so crisp and clear. Our only regret would be that you were not with us the entire weekend!!
We could not have been more blessed to have such an AMAZING photographer to share our engagement session and wedding day with. Along the journey not only did she capture our wonderful memories on film but we also gained her as a friend. Thank you Jessica Fike from the bottom of our hearts 🙂
Thank you again so much for yesterday. We had a blast and are so excited about our pictures! Bryce talked the whole way home about how easy you made it for him. He said after a few minutes talking with you, he wasn’t nervous anymore.
