Jessie is a Wilmington local hailing from Atlanta Georgia. After picking up a camera in the seventh grade, there was no doubt that a spot behind the camera was where she belonged. After moving to Wilmington in 2012 for school at UNCW, Jessie continued her photography on the side as a self taught photographer and has worked tirelessly to cultivate a style of photography that will transcend decades to come.
My favorite thing about photography is interacting with new clients who may be shy at first, but become friends by the end of the session. Growing connections through photos isn’t just a hobby but a passion.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
My favorite shoot, by far, was an engagement shoot for a young couple down at wrightsville beach. I brought along a bottle of champagne to celebrate their new engagement and wound up thigh deep in the water to capture the perfect shot. An absolutely magical day!
