My first Senior from there! He was an absolute blast to work with and the most photogenic :) He could throw a smile faster than I could! Great Job Dylan :) Here are some sneak peaks!

Mr.+Mrs. Weekley http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2015/5/mr-mrs-weekley Yesterday, May 16, 2015 I was honored to be a bridesmaid in my only best friends wedding. Brittany and Nick finally tied the knot on the beach in a beautiful ceremony in Destin, Florida. I always though Brittany was the most beautiful person inside and out, but today she had a new sense about her. She had the glow of a Bride to be, which I don't know if she realized brought tears to my eyes. I saw that everything was perfectly in place,
 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 

I was honored to take the picture of Brittany and her grandmother. Too precious Beauties that's for sure :)
 


 


 

I will never forget this day. She will forever be my bestfriend, and I will always be here no matter what. I love you Brittany Weekley. More than you will ever know.

Senior Sessions http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2015/4/senior-sessions
 

Senior sessions are just fun. It’s plain to see why… playing dress up and feeling like a million bucks. BUT, it’s really more than that. These ladies are at an age where they are dealing with a lot of social pressure and it’s important to me to capture them as they are. Doing hair and makeup and getting all dolled up is really secondary to connecting with these girls and making them realize how amazing they are! It’s such a pivotal age!! I hope every senior I photograph feels this when I photograph them. It’s not about the photos, the likes, the glamour, but really giving them a great experience to go home with. That is my goal and I am sticking to it:)

A Daytona Beauty :) http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2014/11/a-daytona-beauty I graduated with such a sweetheart, Miss Haley Blount and had the opportunity to shoot her mother's wedding:) I don't think I've met such a loving couple in all of my travels shooting weddings. I am so grateful Haley, we really enjoyed our trip and the beautiful wedding of your mom:)

Miss Bella http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2014/9/miss-bella My Favorite little 3 year old:)
 

This is my 2nd time spending the day with Miss Bella, and it was on her 3rd birthday in Jacksonville, Fl. I'll never forget walking into their GORGEOUS home and Bella came running up to me and jumped right into my arms. She is the most special little girl I've ever known.  Her mama wanted to do some shots to hopefully send in photos to get Bella into modeling.........and you can see why. Ain't she just the most beautiful and happy little girl you've ever seen:)
 


 


 

With those precious little feet, just before the waves came and washed it away, we just had to capture her name, a heart and her cute little toes:)

  I knew Christina for many years back, and met Karl only a couple years prior to her introducing us! I'll never forget her saying, "Jessica this is....." and I yelled back "Crazy Karl" :) Of course, I had to explain!!!!! Little did we all know that this man would sweep her off her feet, along with her kids too! Unfortunately, He swept my best friend all the way to Colorado:) I was lucky enough to get a trip all the way to Colorado and capture their beautiful wedding! Karl, you are an amazing man to pick up and help father her children and take the most amazing care of someone who means so much to me. I will never be able to thank you enough for making her so happy!

{Sara+Shaun} http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2013/11/-sara-shaun Sara and Shaun…What to even say about these guys?! I think they’re probably the funniest, most joyful and able-to-laugh-at-everything clients I've ever worked with and we couldn’t adore them more! They take nothing too seriously, and at the same time have a deep friendship + love for each other that is crazy beautiful to witness. It was awesome to work with 2 friends, True Beauty, + their Lovesickness for each other, too! I'm so glad Sara+Shaun. picked me to document this stunning day  + I'm so honored to have been a part of :)

{Tera's Surprise Engagement } http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2013/8/-teras-surprise-engagement “..’Cause I love you more
than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am….”
 

~Ingrid Michaelson
 

In all the days I've been a photographer, I never had a potential groom contact me for a surprise engagement to his lady. I also never imagined that it would be to one of my very best friends I'd known since High School. This beautiful young lady happened to be my cheerleading stunt partner whom I'd loved for so long. I'd never met Dylan, however he found me just by knowing how close Tera and I had always been. I was so honored that he contacted me to take pictures for their "family." All Tera knew was that they were having pictures taken of them, never had a clue that he was PROPOSING :)  Behind the camera, all I could do was cry. I just knew it was going to give it away. Luckily, she didn't know! Dylan and Tera's engagement photos were so much fun to capture.
 

Along with Tera's best friends, her son, his daughter, her mom, and of course a photographer.......we all knew it was coming, but just didn't know when!
 

I am so honored to have been a part of this important day.  I had a really amazing time and I wish you both all the very best.  You’re awesome.  Thank you for making my first proposal post baby easy and so fun!
 

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day and the surprise we ALL got to see :

Mr+Mrs Brooks http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2013/4/mr-mrs-brooks Ok, full disclosure... I sobbed behind the camera at this wedding, like a lot (but they were GOOD tears!). Maybe it was because I've gotten a pretty good chance to get to know this couple and their family. Maybe it was how much I learned about Lori and Jimmy during their engagement. Maybe it was getting to know such an amazing lady by working with her as an RN and as a Respiratory Therapis. Maybe it was the proud way in Lori's grandson walked her down the aisle, and the numerous beautiful tributes made to their families throughout the day. Maybe it was the AMAZING music with a drum beat so strong you could not help but feel it in your soul.  Maybe it was because Lori, Jimmy and their families have been such a joy to work with. One thing I know for sure: It was definitely because I like this couple a lot, and I am really truly happy for them! Congratulations to Lori and Jimmy, and to their families as well! I am a better person for knowing you both!

My Little Cousin Got Hitched :) http://jessicajonesphotography.com/blog/2013/2/my-little-cousin-got-hitched This was a wedding that makes it difficult for me to find words to describe. I’ve known Amanda, aka LuLu since she was born, and I never once imagined that I’d be the one photographing her wedding day.  Everything from our older cousin also using her amazing talent to create all the decorations to the little warm gestures of our family coming together today- all of it comes together and makes them the sort of couple I’d die to photograph every weekend. I often overuse the word “perfect,” but this time, I really mean it. Their wedding day was perfect
 

I don’t know what to say. Your joy at finally being Mr. and Mrs.,  it’s the kind of thing that keeps me doing what I do. Your love of photography and willingness to indulge my whims is something I will always be grateful for, and I can’t thank you enough for welcoming me so warmly as I photographed you and our family + friends! From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
