Dear Brides,

By now, you've probably read quite a few of these. You've got the key-words down.

"Photojournalistic, creative, artistic, fun"

But what does this tell you about me? What does this tell you about how I will interpret the one of the most emotionally poignant days in your life?

I can only tell you about me, how I love, how I see love, and most of all.....how I show YOUR love.

I will do whatever I can to get to know YOU. As a person, as a couple. I want to know what makes you tick, what makes you laugh, what makes you love. Because once I see it, I can capture it. I can show it to others. You can show it to your grandchildren 40 years from now.

It's real. It's emotional. I DO consider myself a photojournalist, an artist, fun, creative. But more than that, I make myself a witness to YOU. I will showcase you in a way that's unique.

Have more questions? I'm always happy to respond to email:
jessica@moonbellephotography.com

Excellent photos!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Oh, don't make me pick! There's a few while we were dancing that really made me excited, and our first look was magical.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Everyone loved Jessica. She silently documented all the most intimate moments, directed our herds of family, and when I had a dress malfunction, calmed me down. She was amazing - all the different shots came out great.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Engagment session, two photographers if needed (we didn't), DVD's of the photos, one other session that we are saving.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was completely pleasant and professional, but cut up with us as well. She got the business out of the way, then did some silly shots. She's got such a great personality, she put everyone at ease.

Wonderful Experience!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Wow, I cannot get over how happy I am with the overall experience with Jessica. She runs a very professional business, yet is not afraid to add her personality into her vision. Her picture taking is quite versatile (B&W, washed-out romantic photos, candids), as well as flexible (changed my engagement session to a Rehearsal Dinner session). She made mey entire wedding party feel very comfortable, and especially me during my boudoir photo shoot! I hope she can be there to take pictures of all my important milestones for years to come.

You could not tell Jessiva was in the room but when I received my disc with all of the photos SHE HAD PICTURES OF EVERYTHING! She did not miss one element of the wedding.

She was very in tune to what was going on. Very understanding about everything that could possibly happen. This made my family and me very comfortable. We all need a quiet in the middle of the storm.

Wedding photos with Jessica Brown

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jessica was very good at being there without being seen. She is a lot like a cat. There one minute and gone the next. But she is ALWAYS on the job. She got a lot of photos I never knew she took.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Engagement pictures,wedding pictures, and a CD with copy rights.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was very friendly, lots of fun and had great ideas for photos. If you want someone with different ideas for pictures she is the one for you.

I'm so glad we picked a great photographer...

What was your favorite wedding photo?

So far we have only seen a preview of 20 or so photos because our wedding was just a couple weeks ago, but she had a preview up in a couple days and everything we've seen has been beautiful. I have two favorites so far: one of my husband and I laying on our chests on the grass in our wedding clothes, and another of my mom helping me with my dress. A lot of the pictures look like something you would see in a magazine.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

At the ceremony, we didn't even know she was there until the formal shots at the end. From the pictures we've seen, she was always in the right place at the right time. She arrived at the church early and was very prepared (as she is with everything) so she just blended right in.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got the "classic" package which included an engagement session, 6 hours on our wedding day, a $100 print credit, and all the the images on CD with a release. Not having digital images was a dealbreaker with other photographers we considered and I'm so excited to have it.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

We planned our wedding from Germany, which was hard. She made the photography planning easy on me. She corresponded frequently through email, and she was obviously well prepared. At the engagement session, she had even drawn stick figures of poses she wanted to get. I appreciated that she had everything under control, and I didn't have to worry about it. She was so funny, too. She was always sweet and silly, which made us and everyone else laugh and smile more. She has a way of making you feel comfortable in what can be awkward poses. I got a lot of compliments from friends and family about Jessica. I found Jessica on this website, and I joined it just to give her a review. She deserves it.

My amazing wedding experience with Jessica Brown!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There are way too many to pick from. I really love the detail shots that Jessica gets including the shoes, rings, flowers...etc.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I never knew she was even there during the ceremony...she never got "in the way" but definitely worked her butt off before and after the ceremony capturing every emotion and moment.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Just being herself made everyone comfortable.

Beautiful Style

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There was one of us after our "first look." It was from the top of a stairwell looking down and it black and white. I love the drama and romance of it.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jessica was wonderful to work with. We emailed back and forth a lot before the wedding going over ides. She was very creative and worked with me to make sure my wedding pictures were a dream.

We made a good choice!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I feel like there are too many favorites to choose from. There's one where we're both laying on the ground looking up thats GORGEOUS. My husband's favorite is a silhouette of us at sunset. It was really great because we got to see samples up in just a few days. My whole family went online to see them and couldn't wait to see the rest.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She worked with both of us well so we were easily able to coordinate group and action shots.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got an engagement session (which was turned into a guest sign-in album), we got custom save-the-dates, a cd of all images, wedding coverage, a bridal session, and a day-after session, we're currently designing our custom wedding album

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was very good with communication so everyone got the shots they requested. She talked to everyone about a timeline previously so everyone knew when to do what. She gave us time to get ourselves together and was very sweet throughout. She had great energy that helped keep us going and calm our nerves throughout the day.

Great Job

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I had a lot of favorites so it's hard to say. But my mom had one she looooved of my bridal session right after the wedding. We were downtown so we walked around the buildings a bit and she got a gorgeous one of me leaning against this wall of vines. My mom works at a bank and she loved it so much she actually has it framed in her area so customers can see it. People ask about it every day!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Aside from the traditional posed shots we wanted, she was pretty much invisible. She got a lot of great candid shots, and great action shots for the bouquet toss.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Our package included a bridal session and wedding coverage, a cd of all images. We are also planning on adding a day-after session later.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She talked with us beforehand to make sure any questions were answered. It made things work really well during the wedding and formals.

LOVED the pictures! Amazing photographer!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I loved all of them. I would have to say one of my favorites is one of all my bridesmaids. It's a beautiful black and white shot.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She just kind of hung back and did her thing. She was fantastic with every picture she took that day.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got full copyright release from her and a disc of all our pictures(we had the same with our engagement shots).

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

I've known her since I was a Jr. in high school and she knows my family, so that helped. But Jessica is such a sweet girl that you don't HAVE to have known her for years to be comfortable around her. She was nice to everyone and just as sweet as she could be.

a great experience

What was your favorite wedding photo?

We were so happy with Jessica's work and loved all the photos but I guess my favorite was a shot we got after the ceremony. It is cinematic and romantic and I still get choked up when I look at it. She's incredible. She actually had her favorite pics from our day posted to her site the next day. It was incredible to see such great shots and made us more excited to see the rest.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She did a really great job with candids. She quietly slipped through the crowd with her camera in hand, we barely noticed her through the reception. We have these gorgeous shots of our friends and family dancing, laughing, and enjoying the day.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was so sweet to everyone in our family and helped everyone feel included (even our "photographer" uncle who always chimes in. She spoke to him and was very nice to speak with everyone making sure we got all the important and special shots for us. It made it a really personal experience.

Life saver!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Honestly, we had too many to choose a favorite. There was one that really meant a lot to me with me and my dad's first dance (it's actually one of the ones she has up here!).

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She spoke to us like friends or family. That made it really nice when we had to coordinate for photos or anyone had any questions. She was really good with candids and portraits. She really went outside the box for locations and made our memories something special.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

She really worked with us to make a package that fit US. We sat down, looked over everything and ended up with something really custom. She works pure MAGIC. We got albums, a cd of images, full coverage, and a day-after session. I even ended up using her for our maternity pictures (we just had our first child), and my daughter's baby portraits. And yes, it's still magical.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

First of all, the photographer we'd originally chosen (and given a deposit to) canceled ONE WEEK before our wedding. Luckily, Jessica was free and made everything from that point on easy for us. It took a LOT of stress off to know everything would be in her hands. :)

So creative!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite wedding photo was part of our "first look." Before I met Jessica, I did a lot of research on whether or not Josh and I would see each other before the ceremony. She sat us down and explained the pros and cons of each. In the end, we decided to set aside time before the ceremony (and everyone arriving) to go off and get a first look and then our formals. IT WAS GREAT. I have this beautiful intimate moment with just the two of us now.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jessica arrived at our venue 30 minutes in advance to "scope it out" as she said. It was great because she had a plan of action for the pictures and whisked us from one spot to the next. It made things so really smoothly and we had a lot of fun. As for pictures, she took some great "photojournalistic" shots of the day and I got to see a lot of things I didn't get to on the actual day.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got the "regal" package with unlimited photography, an engagement session with save-the-dates, 2 sessions of our choice (I got a bridal and we're planning a day-after session for our one year anniversary). She also made us a custom guest sign-in album with the engagement pictures. It was really cool because all my guests were able to look through our engagements and sign by them. AND last but not least, our flush-mount wedding album (ohmygod!!!!!). It's sooooo gorgeous. My friends come over just to look at it. lol

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She went through the plan of the day beforehand so we all knew what to do. It made things really easy.

Gorgeous gorgeous job!!!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

It was actually a bridal shot taken by the beach....it was GORGEOUS!! It was by an old castle turret she'd found and she researched all the times and tide-times to make it perfect (right at sunset)!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

It was great, she quietly slipped in and got the great shots!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I got one of the premium collections where I got 2 shoots of my choice :bridal and boudoir (for his eyes only!), a cd of all images, a print credit(which I used for an extra album for my mother), and a beautiful lay-flat album. She was great with communication and got a Facebook preview up ASAP so I could show the pics to all my friends!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was really sweet and kept everyone laughing. It was nice because we didn't notice the camera as much. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Awesome!!! Would recommend to all!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There was an amaaaaazing photo she took of us, iit reminds me of a magazine! It was of my (now) husband and I----we were outside the church in a hall area, he had his arms around me and we were looking off to the side.....but the expressions, the lighting, the angle. We became friends fast and I kept joking how funny she looked on the ground...but the girl does anything for a great shot!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She was very light and fun, she let us have our moments and would lightly guide us,laugh with us to keep us comfortable in front of the camera. Our candids were actually my favorite because I almost forgot she was there!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

The package I got had a beautiful coffee-table album (all my friends rave about it!!)-----she designed everything for us and made sure we were super happy with everything before sendoff. We had a print credit with our chosen package so we got those plus all images on a cd (which was awesome!!!). The package I chose had either an engagement, bridal, or "trash the dress shoot". We got an engagement shoot (which pics hang in out hallway now!)

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was really laid back....I'm the type of person who has to have everything perfect and she made sure she knew exactly what I wanted...I got that and more. She kept us laughing and joking, she kept things moving and was very organized so it didn't seem like we were just "standing around taking pictures" or anything. I loooooved her!
