About Daring Wanderer Photography
Jess is a photographer & storyteller based in Toronto, although she finds her fondest memories have been made while exploring and traveling the world with her better half, Matt. Daring Wanderer serves to capture things a little differently: the organic, fleeting, intangible moments. Straying from tradition, she's not about heavily posed photographs or long-winded shot lists. Best suited for nontraditional & creative individuals who share an appreciation for interesting surroundings, beautiful landscapes and quiet moments.
Jess was ranked among top 30 under 30 wedding photographers by Canada Photo Convention. Her work has been featured in several blogs and magazines, such as Green Wedding Shoes, Junebug Weddings, A Practical Wedding, Magnolia Rouge, Intimate Weddings, Wedding Bells Magazine, Style Me Pretty & Wedding Obsession.
Daring Wanderer provides full-day coverage for couples so that every moment of the event is captured from beginning to end. Engagement and portrait shoots are offered to couples. Some wedding services include:
How they work

Jess is a dream to work with. From the first few email exchanges to meeting her for the first time on our wedding day, to receiving our photos – just an incredible experience. Hiring the right photographer was important to us and Jess was everything we wanted and more. We LOVE the liberties she took in documenting the moments and details of our day. The photos really read like a story and she really captured the magic we felt that day. We couldn’t believe how quickly she processed our photos and how many photos she took!! From looking at the photos you might think we had a team of photographers, but she was there all on her own. She is a ninja! We are in love with our photos. They are so gorgeous and we feel SO lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Jess. She is super easy going, talented, and professional. Highly recommended!!

Tomo & Chris!
Your wedding was one of the most magical of days that I was so fortunate to be a part of. To also be able to watch as you got fitted into your kimono was really special and I want to thank you for opening your arms and making me feel like part of your family throughout the day. I cannot wait to blog your wedding and share it with the world because it was incredible!
All the love from me and baby :)

Jess was the second thing we booked in regards to the wedding after we had a venue and location confirmed and I am so glad we were able to have her shoot our wedding! I had been enamoured with her gorgeous photos after looking for engagement photographers a few months earlier and was so thrilled that she was able to take us on and drive to Kingston, Ontario to shoot our engagement session at home and fly to Vancouver, BC for our wedding. Our engagement photo shoot was relaxed and fun and I know both me and my husband will always cherish having photos taken in our first home together in our backyard and by the Kingston waterfront. We got to know her and she was fun, approachable and made the awkward situation of posing for photos feel like we were just hanging out. Our wedding was large and full of family and friends from all over the world but Jess was still able to capture some intimate moments during our ceremony and and made a crowded national park on a long weekend look like a serene forest. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She is thoughtful, artistic and will capture beautiful and intimate images that you will be able to cherish forever.

Jess from Daring Wanderer photographed our cottage wedding in Owen Sound and an engagement shoot at one of her own secret (stunning) locations. Jess’ work speaks for itself. Her photos have movement, texture and emotion. Her use of light and shadow make for dramatic and vivid photos. She works as a single shooter with few gadgets. She doesn’t disrupt the day, just fits around it and captures it. She excels at candids and has an amazing eye which makes her work insanely fast. She also has a magical talent for making you look photogenic when you are not and making you look much better than you do in real life (or at least that was the case for me)! We could not have chosen a better photographer.

Jess was wonderful to work with! My husband and I had a small intimate wedding of 25 and Jess quickly fit right in amongst our family. She was fast and captured every moment exquisitely. We are so thankful we chose Jess to capture our special day! She is the best and we admire our photos everyday!!

Marjory, your words mean so much! Thank you for letting me be a part of your intimate wedding and for trusting me to capture all the small moments for you. I hope you are adjusting well to the move and hope to stay in touch! xo

I cannot recommend Jess enough! After our initial meeting to discuss the possibility of her documenting our wedding, I was convinced. Compared to other photographers we had been speaking to she genuinely seemed excited and expressed an interest in being part of our plans. She does an amazing job of making you feel like you're her top priority although she has tons of other clients. What I loved most was her ability to document very intimate moments without intruding or making them feel contrived. The photos she delivered were incredibly thoughtful and far exceeded our expectations.
