My name is Yesika /Jessica/. I am a professional photographer with 13 years working hand to hand with my camera. After I graduated with a Master in Arts my camera and I started the life journey in Europe. I have been based in the Bay Area since early 2020. Since then, I have been working as a freelance events photographer. I’m grateful to be part of the California community where I have continued to build my career as a photographer. Working as a wedding, event and family portrait photographer helps me to continue ahead with a Photography Studio Owned Women, a local business project while I do what I love to do.
I am not just a photographer. I'm an artist. I love telling story, writing, painting and observing. I am creative, I infinitely appreciate beauty and I respect all forms of art. From my perspective, Art is beauty in colors, lights and shadows. Art is expression and feeling. I’ve spent years perfecting photography techniques, learning about philosophy and arts. I was traveling around the world meeting different cultures and authentic traditions. I’m excited to share it with you.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
All events are different and special. When they hire me as a photographer I want all my clients to have the best memories of me and my work. I take great care to find beauty, harmony and authenticity in my photographs. I enjoy the familiar and romantic wedding atmosphere and, the confident and pleasant portrait sessions.
A fun fact about this photographer
The first wedding I did as a lead photographer in California 3 years ago. I was nervous, at this moment my English was minimum. I knew how to direct the poses in Spanish language. So, I tried to be more friendly than usual and turn my limitation into something funny showing the couple and their family with gestures and some sentences in English as they should pose in front of the camera. Fortunately, my English is now more professional and I have been able to overcome my stage of pantomime photography. This couple was very happy with their wedding photos. In addiction, I learned how important it is to be well communicated to become a professional Lead Photographer.
