    AMAZING!!!! Went above and beyond!

    I'm absolutely in love with our wedding photos! Jess was amazing to work with from start to finish. She was very organized and responded promptly to all of my emails. While Jess was unable to shoot our wedding herself, we had her associates Cheyenne and Leah. THEY WERE INCREDIBLE! Every single person in our wedding party was raving about them. They went above and beyond. Leah even gave me her flats and walked barefoot so I didn't have to walk in heels down a steep hill in my wedding dress. We are so pleased with how the photos turned out and the exceptional service provided. I highly recommend booking with Jess and her team!!!

    Amazing Service!

    Jess was nothing short of great! She was super responsive and helpful during our COVID-19 wedding drama, where we had to post-pone / reschedule our wedding. She was a sweetheart during the wedding day and the pictures turned out amazing.

    Amazing all around

    Jess was amazing! She鈥檚 more than just an extremely talented photographer. She helped me throughout the entire wedding planning process and was incredibly helpful. The day of could have been chaos as there was a fire in the hotel while we were getting ready. She helped coordinate the group with Ryan and rolled into the earlier schedule with ease. We have so many wonderful photos. some of my favourites from the hotel evacuation and fire dept. 馃挴 recommend her to anyone!

    Jess Collins Photography's reply:

    Oh Marsha, those firemen were so fun! Despite having to put your veil on while going down the emergecny exit I'd like to think we all kept our cool for the event of that. Such a fun day and I am so happy you love your images.

    Disney Fairytale Wedding- best photographer!

    Jess and Sandra were absolutely amazing! I do not like pictures of myself and I love our wedding photos! They were fun and professional. Sandra even got stung by a bee that was in my train! I had them at my fireworks dessert party at the Contemporary and for my wedding the next day (ceremony in Epcot, Italy and reception at the Yacht Club). I cannot recommend Jess Collins Photography enough!

    Jess Collins Photography's reply:

    We LOVED your wedding too! If only we could relive your wedding day over and over for more fun. Thank you for being so amazing awesome as well.

    Highly Recommend, Great Experience!

    Jess is an amazing photographer! She makes you feel so comfortable from the beginning, like you're talking to an old friend. Her upbeat attitude is a joy to be around and really added to our engagement session and wedding day. She gives great direction of how to pose (which was so important to us) in order to get wonderful photos. At times posing can feel so awkward, but seeing the finished product made it all come together. We love ALL of our photos and can't imagine anyone else capturing those special moments in our lives. If you want great photographer, and a lovely human being to capture your day, you can't go wrong with Jess!

    Truly the BEST!

    Jess is a true professional and is incredible with what she does. She didn鈥檛 even bat an eye when we wanted to change the location of our wedding to out of province. She is organized and asks all the right questions to ensure she knows exactly how you want your day while providing her experience when needed.

    She keeps the wedding day fun and light to calm your nerves while still capturing all the emotion and special moments of the day. I cannot thank her enough for her hard work, helping keeping our day on track and providing us with tokens to look back on for the rest of our lives!
