18 Years of experience

I'm Jess and I specialize in making striking portraits against the rolling backdrop of Middle Tennessee for an affordable price.

I’ve spent nearly two decades behind the lens — from the rigors of the Marine Corps to the seaside opulence of Newport, Rhode Island. I have photographed people from all walks of life, from special olympians, to military generals and Kennedys in New England, to families in Middle Tennessee.

I’m a proud veteran, double graduate of the U.S. Defense Information School and a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston.

Along with my wife, two sons and our pups, I have planted deep roots here among the nostalgia-inducing farms and serene hills of Williamson County. There is truly no place like it on Earth.

Awards, honors and recognition

I earned multiple awards for my time as a photographer in the Marines, including the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for excellence in my field. My work has been featured the Boston Herald, Latina Style Magazine, Leatherneck Magazine, the Chevron and the Navy Compass.

A fun fact about me

I love to spend time with my family - especially hiking, fishing and playing Pokemon Go with my little boys.

    Wonderful experience with this company. Instant feedback to set up photo shoot, friendly and family orientated. Jess was exceptional working with our family of three teen girls. The turnaround time was less than 24 hours to view our photos and another 24 hours once edited. Jamie the manager made sure we were satisfied with our photos and helped us decide on which photos to choose. It was a hard decision since they all came out beautifully. We will be using them again for our photos.
