Elopement + Intimate Wedding Photographer for the courageously raw + unabashedly weird


Reviews and kind words for Texas based Elopement and Intimate destination photographer Jessica Collins



Omg, I would recommend anyone who wants a couple shoot to Jessica in the blink of an eye. That is an absolute no-brainer. Jessica has an unbelievable ability to set people completely at ease. Instead of rushing straight into the shoot itself, she literally just hung out with us, told stories, and made us laugh until our bellies ached for a full hour before even picking up the camera. That really set the tone for the rest of the shoot. Jessica made us feel completely and totally at ease. I have never felt more comfortable on a photo shoot than with Jessica. She made us feel completely relaxed, encouraged and affirmed us, and directed the shoot flawlessly. She has the market cornered for the most laid-back, hilarious, enjoyable couple shoots ever!

Jessica was phenomenal and made us feel so comfortable and natural! She got to know us and took pictures based off our personality. It was such a fun experience. I think it’s so important to feel like you can be yourself and have that celebrated. She pulls the best out of you and makes you look fabulous! 



I think what stood out to me the most was when you texted me when it was coming close to the wedding and asked how you could pray for us in the time leading up to the wedding! That was sooooooo wonderful and totally made me feel loved. You went above and beyond what I believe a typical photographer would do and you really wanted to cultivate our friendship and working relationship which made it so much easier to feel comfortable when taking pictures at the wedding because we could relax around you and not feel awkward like "what do I do with my hands??" "Is this right?" lol!

10 out of 10 stars for this lady! I would definitely recommend Jess and her talents to anyone. The pictures were FLAWLESS, and she has the ability to capture your true essence in every single photo!



I would recommend you 200%!!! Not only from your talents in photography, but the whole process was more than we could have hoped for in working with you! Anyone I talked to from the wedding, family + friends, raved about how great of a photographer you were and how you were so fun to talk to, and they loved how you weren't just on the sidelines potentially making them feel awkward. They loved how you were so fun, that you were part of the party. I will pimp you out ALWAYS! :)

My favorite memory from the day was how much fun we were having. I was really nervous going into the shoot but I ended up having the best time and I know Casey did too. I think the music helped and your direction helped a lot because I am really awful at posing for pictures, so being able to have someone to listen to, and have fun prompts (like acting like we were walking down the street drunk 😂) helped so much and allowed us to loosen up and enjoy ourselves.  I couldn’t believe how dedicated and hard working you were. Even getting in the water in your jeans to get a good shot! I would 100000% recommend you. Your work speaks for itself and I will keep recommending you as often as I can!
