get to know ME more!
Hi Thank you so much for visiting the blog! Whether you're looking for more pretty pictures, inspiration for your wedding day, or some useful Deep Creek info, I hope you'll find a comfy seat, maybe a cup of coffee, and read on!
March can be a fine time for pictures, my friends! Don’t let the threat of continued winter weather and lack of greenery scare you! Here in the Appalachian and far western Maryland mountain regions, March can still mean snow and really, our spring greens don’t really make a great showing until at least late April. But we can still take some nice pictures in this in-between kind of season. 🙂
I’m currently working with a mama who is scheduled for a March maternity session (Hi Jenna!) and we’re chatting dresses, locations and the possibilities of weather. I was reminded of my friend Taylor’s March maternity session last year. A warm-ish day with a slight touch of sun, but no real signs of spring. Tan grass, bare trees…but for me, you guys, the tan grass + bare trees can be so beautiful! Together, they create a neutral, muted backdrop that that can be complimentary of so many different session styles…including Taylor’s colorful dress and warm tones…
We also had some wind that day, which when I placed Taylor in the right direction, it worked in our favor. I loved her WHOLE March maternity look!
The wind blowing her hair was one of my favorite parts of this session!
Then we added the rest of the family…
And then a hat! Taylor can totally pull off a hat! If you can pull of a hat, I highly recommend them as a photo accessory. 🙂
If you’re up for a March session against the neutral, muted backdrop that nature presents, let me know. 🙂
Scenes and thoughts from deep creek
Well hey now! I thought for sure it had been more than seven months since I blogged last! Wish I could do it more…and plan to as soon as the new JFP website comes out.
I’m not sure I’m starting anything consistent here, just sharing some random thoughts and scenes from Deep Creek on this random Wednesday…
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!
