Jess Rene Photos


Jess not only captures her couples’ big moments, she celebrates alongside them and treats them like family.

In Their Own Words:

Hey there, I’m Jess and your tour guide to having a fun and memorable photo experience. My couples are in love, souls who feel emotion & anyone who cries or laughs when they look at a photograph. I mean this is key, right? I love couples that just go with the flow and want to enjoy whatever comes their way. individuals adventuring no matter where they are! 

Most of all, they trust me and my judgment for photos. while listening to key desires, i work to capture more than just the basics when allowed! From beginning to end I am there. I am not just another vendor for your big day. Whether intimate or big celebration, documenting your day with precious keepsakes is a big deal. If you value photos (digitals or prints) then you are in the right spot. JRP cares about every detail you put into the process. Open communication is key with us. We love getting to know each and every one of our couples like they are basically family.

Jess splits her time between her family home in Vermont and Ohio. 

Favorite Moment During a Wedding: One of my favorite moments has to be the special dances. With a parent or guardian, that few moments one partner has with their mom, dad, or such gets me every time. Whether they are having a conversation or embracing a small bit of silence, you can still see the emotions. 

Favorite Vermont Activity: Growing up, the lake house was the best place to be. I still make time to this day to sit around lake side or dive in. 

Dance Floor Request: So many good songs out there, but I’m just a sucker for ones that really get a crowd going!

Jess is truly one of a kind. The way she makes you feel at ease and perfect in your own way in front of the camera is unmatched! She has an ability to read people and know exactly what they need. She’s very hands on and makes your day feel very much about you! At the end of the day, we were very relaxed and looked back on our day so appreciative, because she helped make it the most memorable day of our lives! Jess will be our forever photographer.

Jess and her team were an excellent addition to our wedding vendor list! All of our pictures came out stunning and I couldn’t ask for anything more. She was communicative and kind during the whole process and all of the information she gave us helped us feel more prepped for day of. Her attitude and skill set was totally worth the extra splurge! We especially appreciated how Jess and her co-photographer Kristin braved the cold and snow to get us some beautiful snowy engagement pics!


Our Favorite Wedding Vendor!

We chose Jess as our photographer for our wedding in October 2022, and she was our favorite vendor!! From the beginning, Jess was so fun to work with and very organized. She responded quickly to emails and questions and worked well with the wedding planner to organize a detailed timeline for our wedding day. On the wedding day, she was a life saver!! When I was stressed, she was calming and reassuring, but she also kept things fun the whole day! Even though we got way off track on our timeline, Jess & Krystal stayed calm and professional and managed to get all the photos we wanted. The wedding party was so impressed by Jess & Krystal and had a blast working with them! The photo booth was also a big hit at the wedding. When we received our wedding pictures, we were blown away by how amazing they are!! When we show them to friends and family, they are blown away too. “Stunning” is a common word used to describe our pictures. Jess is truly great at what she does. My only regret is that we didn’t do engagement pictures with Jess because we had a short timeline between our engagement and wedding. I know we’ll be booking with Jess in the future when we need professional pictures!

Jess is a 5 star person! She was phenomenal throughout the entire process. I had braces before my wedding and she made me feel beautiful and comfortable in front of the camera. Day off she was a saint at keeping me calm, letting me get the last second shots I wanted, wrangling family members and fixing my hair after it fell out. I don’t know what we would have done without her but she was a highlight of the entire process for us! Could not recommend her enough!

Jess went above and beyond providing different recommendations to help plan a seamless wedding day. Even with different time zones, she was quick to respond and was a great communicator. She did our engagement photos (2 days before our wedding day) and was open for an adventure even on short notice! Then the day of our wedding, Jess already had our engagement photos printed for us to have on display. Jess beat me to my own wedding and was in high spirits prepared for a long day! She asked what was important to us to capture on our day and by far over delivered. By the end of the night my husband and I found ourselves hanging out with Jess more than some of our family and friends. Jess is a now a friend and I couldn’t be more thankful that she was not only there to capture our special day, but to be apart of it. I cannot praise Jess enough for the beautiful experience. We are beyond thankful for her and are excited to use her for our photos in the future.
