We loved, loved, loved working with Jessica! She's incredibly organized, which makes working with her so easy - she helped prepare our timeline several months in advance, got our engagement photos back to us in less than a week, and our final wedding shots in less than two, and was great at orchestrating all our photos the day of the wedding with our bridal party and extended family. On top of that, our photos turned out beautifully - they're classic and timeless, and we're so pleased with them. I can't say enough good things about her -- she's definitely our favorite vendor, and we'd recommend her to anyone!

All we can say is WOW! From the moment my husband and I first met Jessica, we felt like old friends. We talked for almost 2 hours that first meeting, and it only felt like 15 minutes. She makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable which is so important when you spend the whole day with your photographer. From the engagement session at the park with our dog, all the way to the wedding day, she was very quick to keep in touch if you had a question, she is great at keeping our account updated, and she is incredibly open to any of your ideas. Even though she traveled to St. Cloud for our day, she was willing to make multiple stops to take pictures as well. Her attention to detail is why I looked into her in the first place, and the pictures we have attest to her passion for the couples she works with and the photography she loves! I recommend Jessica Smith Photography without reservation, and I truly look forward to using her again in the future as we grow our family. What a beautiful beginning she has given us!

My husband and I are very happy with Jessica and our photographs. We booked her for an engagement session and 7 hours on our wedding day. For our engagement photos we had a perfect weather day and got awesome outdoor pictures. She was so creative with the lighting. On our wedding day it was rainy and cool. Jessica knew how much we wanted outdoor pictures anyway. She had brought along a black umbrella and found many outdoor spots for us to do pictures despite the rain. I was so happy she did that and was willing to take her camera outside in the weather. Our favorite picture is my husband and I walking in the rain with our umbrella after our "first meeting" before the wedding. She also took us outside for a few minutes between dinner and cake as it had stopped raining at that time, so we could get some more pictures with the two of us outside. She has the ability to make any situation beautiful and will capture your day so perfectly. Another thing she does is literally go over every shot you want with family / friend / bridal party photos and people's names about a month before the wedding. She brings that sheet along on the wedding day. Her assistant checks off the photos as they are taken so nothing gets missed and you don't need to think through that on your big day - just get to enjoy. I highly recommend her work. Pictures from your wedding day are what you're left with when it's all over - investing in a great photographer is so with it!

Jessica was such a wonderful photographer that captured such special moments in both our engagement and wedding photos. She was very friendly and personable from the start and explained what she could provide for us. Loved her style

Jessica has her sister work with her on weddings and they are VERY fun to be around. They are full of energy, life, patience, and have amazing ideas. I loved her website, blog, and the way she takes her pictures. I have only seen a few pictures as she is not done editing the others but from what I have seen I LOVE and cannot wait to see more. I would definately recommend her and would hire her again for other occasions.

We interviewed almost a dozen wedding photographers, but when we talked with Jessica, we knew right away that she would give us the photographic experience we were hoping for.
She did both our January engagement and October wedding pictures, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Not only did she capture the planned moments in a beautiful way, but we were pleasantly surprised when we got our pictures back and saw all the fabulous "un-planned" pictures.
If you're looking for stiff and formal, look somewhere else - Jessica's pictures are fun and full of energy, just like her.
We LOVE our pictures, and will definitely use her for life-event photography in the future!

I've had the pleasure of knowing Jessica as a friend for over five years, so when I got engaged I knew immediately that I wanted Jes to photograph our wedding. As a person Jes is positive, energetic and motivated, and as a photographer she is the same way. She had a smile on her face the whole day, and she made our group feel completely at ease. Jes also did a great job of quickly and smoothly reorganizing our plans after our outdoor garden ceremony had to be moved indoors due to the weather. After looking at the pictures, my husband and I both agreed that they turned out so perfectly that we didn't even miss being outdoors. We've had so much fun looking through all the pictures - our only problem is we can't decide which ones to print because there are so many good ones to choose from! It's clear that Jessica is passionate about photography, and she'll work with you to make sure your photos are something you'll cherish forever. My husband and I would like to thank Jessica and her assistant Carley for everything they did to make our wedding day so special. We are so happy with the whole experience, and we can't express how grateful we are for everything Jes did for us. YOU ROCK!! :) Katie & David Flottum

We had Jessica do our wedding in Jamaica and this was her first destination wedding out of the country! She did an amazing job and every picture she took was beautiful. We couldn't have been more happy or asked for anything more. She met with us to find out what we were looking for and arrived at the site early to look around for some good photo opportunities. She was creative, willing to let us give her our own ideas. We had such a good time taking pictures. When we returned home from our trip, she had already gone through all of the pictures and had them ready to go for us! I can't wait to look back at our photos and see all of the wonderful memories that were captured. Thanks again! Highly recommend!

Jessica photographed our September 2010 wedding, and I can honestly say, she was absolutely fabulous! She was so flexible and helpful during the planning process - she put together a timeline of the wedding day, and helped us compile a list of must have moments to capture during the day of. She's always smiling and has a positive attitude; my mind was at ease the day of the wedding - no worries because Jess had it all under control. She offers wonderful, unique ideas for photos (I never thought I would walk through a field in my wedding dress, but these are our favorite photos!!) Her pictures are amazing, and worth absolutely every penny. I plan to use Jessica Smith Photography again in the future for other life events, and I recommend her to every bride! Thanks for everything Jess!

I found Jessica by just searching twin cities photographers last summer. The first thing that caught me was the music on her page. We met with her and loved her immediately. Our engagement session was fun and relaxed and we were blown away by the photos! She has great ideas and a good eye for awesome pics! We were totally comfortable with her and she has a really fun attitude and personality. I would recommend her to anyone getting married. You will love your photos and look at them over and over!!!!!

My husband and I hired Jessica as our photographer for our wedding. She was the most resonably priced, quality photographer we found. Her and her assistant photographer were wonderful on our wedding day and the pictures turned out more beautiful than I imagined! I received 800+ pics.

Jess photographed our wedding and we could not have been more pleased with the results. She took multiple pictures of each pose so that we could choose our favorite, she listened to all of our suggestions, and she was available when we needed her and on time. She was very personable and made us feel comfortable. She also provided us with a CD of our pictures, which was much more easy. There were no hidden costs! She is amazing and I plan to call her as soon as our children arrive!
Passionate, fresh and fun!
My goal as your wedding photographer is to capture the romance and elegance of your day right down to the smallest detail. I am truly passionate about what I do and would be honored to document the most exciting day of your life!
