There is so much more to that experience than just the final edited images. You deserve to have a photographer join you on your wedding day who you trust and who you've invited to share in the most important day of your life! As your photographer, I will spend more time with the two of you then anyone else that day. You will feel and look amazing! You will have have friends and family there supporting you. And you will have the photographs as memories of this beautiful day for years to come!

Each couple is unique and has their own personalities, quirks, and reasons why they love each other! Your photography experience should be just as unique as you both are! I love to serve the type of couple who knows if they want beautiful and unique portraits on their wedding day they need more than a family member or friend who knows how to focus a camera and click the shutter button. The couple who knows they need a full unique experience that will fulfill all of their photography needs.

The Experience

A Note from me to you

FAQ

FAQ

After your initial email comes (send me one here), we will discuss your vision for your wedding photography. We can set up a meeting to get some dessert or, if you prefer, we can talk on the phone or text. After we have answered each others questions and we feel that we are a good fit for each other, we will make it official by signing a contract through an easy online system and paying the retainer. That is when the real fun begins.

You will be sent a link to the online Jesi P wedding experience website where you will find your custom wedding guide and FAQs from past brides with everything you need to know about your wedding experience. You will officially be a #JesiPCouple!!

We will spend a lot of time together planning your engagement session and your wedding day timeline! Having a wedding day timeline will smooth out any kinks for your wedding day and will help everyone stay on the same page. It is my job to stress over the time on your wedding day! I want to make sure that we plan your timeline in a way that helps you stay stress free and relaxed!

plan

celebrate

Once your wedding day rolls around, I will do everything I can to help your day run as smooth as possible! From the moment I walk into your getting ready room to the moment the party ends and you drive away with your love (off into the sunset ;) )! We will celebrate your joy, happiness, and love for each other!
I will capture the first time you see yourself in the mirror, your fiance's expression when he sees you for the first time, the tear rolling down your dad's cheek as he guides you around the dance floor, the secret looks you and your husband give each other when you think no one is looking, the smiles you share all day long as you pledge your love and devotion to one another! I will capture it all so you can look back on those moments and remember the extraordinary amount of love you shared on your wedding day!

Dear

a little note from

me to you

Dear
future

bride

You are probably searching for the perfect venue, florist, photographer, and dress. All the things that will make your day amazing! You've been gathering ideas & pinning like a crazy person. Gathering your hopes and dreams for your wedding all in one place as you start to create the day you've been dreaming of since you met him.

Dear future Bride

Planning a wedding can be hard & stressful. There will be laughter and a few tears along the way. Remember not to stress too much. If you need support & help, turn to that amazing person you've chosen to love forever and share your worries. He will be with you every step of the way, creating the perfect day you've always dreamed of. Because, in the end, he wants you to be happy. He loves you and wants you to know that!

Dear future Bride

As your photographer, what I love most is being able to capture those details you've painstakingly planned, those moments that you will hold dear for the rest of your life, and that dream that you two have created together. And, if you need advice, I will be right there to help you! I make a pretty mean pedicure partner, so if you need to unwind away from everyone and everything, I'll be there for you!

Dear future Bride

Everyone will come from near and far to celebrate your love and to celebrate you. Your brand new life will begin the moment you say "I do!" and you will feel the love from all around you. And, after the wedding and the honeymoon are over, you'll be able to look back on the beautiful photos from your wedding day and be able to remember the feelings you had and the love you share.

Dear future Bride

Write all your memories down. The memory of when you first met your husband, when you first kissed him, when you first knew you loved him, when he proposed, and when you both promised to love and care for each other every day of your life. Spend your time writing those memories down and share those memories with your husband. Tell him why you love him, tell him how much you appreciate him, and how much you miss him every time he is gone.

Dear future Bride

Your love will stand the test of time if you give it the proper care and attention it needs. Remember that.

love, jesi

Dear future Bride

Do you remember the day that you first met her? The day you knew you loved her, your first kiss, the day you decided you wanted to spend the rest of your life with her, and the day you said "Will you marry me?" as you slid the beautiful ring you saved up for onto her ring finger? Hold onto those memories, write them down and give those memories to her over your marriage. As women (even if we don't say it) we need to hear that our husbands love us, and why he loves us. 

Dear future groom

As your day approaches, we will be spending time together taking photos and getting to know each other a bit better. I know...I know...having to spend hours looking into the camera and smiling can be exhausting. But, I will do my best to make the day as efficient and pain free as possible. Just remember those memories while you look at your beautiful fiance' and beautiful bride. It will make the day fly by so you can move on to that beautiful honeymoon you've been planning!

Dear future groom

After the excitement of the wedding day and honeymoon are over, add your memories from the day to those you already have. Again, write them down and give her your memories throughout your marriage. Tell her you love her every day and especially during those moments when you think she knows you love her but you haven't told her in a while. Remember to show her and tell her you love her. It will go a long way...I promise!

love, jesi

What's the price?

Each couple deserves to have their photography fit their needs exactly. I want to help you create your perfect photography package as quickly and easily as possible. From choosing your hours, delivery, personalizing your package, and celebrating! Typically my couples spend about $1500 on their photography package. That can include their hours, engagement session, albums, and prints!

If you are interested in allowing me to photograph your wedding, I would love to hear from you!! Please fill out the contact form or email me at hello@jesipeterson.com and I'll reach out to you as soon as I can! Lets work together to create a package specifically meant for you! 

Hourly price begins at $150/hour

(5 hour minimum)

02

Absolutely! I include the high resolution JPEG files for each session! After your session, you will be sent a link to an online gallery where all of your photos will be placed. From there you can download them (at no charge) or print them from an amazing printing lab! If you want to print your photos somewhere else, feel free to download them and give them to your printer.

Are the digital files included?

03

You can read more about me, my family, and the things I love here or I am happy to meet up with you to get a drink and dessert! If you want to meet up I would love that! Please fill out my contact form here or email me at hello@jesipeterson.com!

How can I get to know you better?

04

I do not give out the RAW files from any sessions. Think of it this way, would you go to a restaurant and ask the chef to give you the bits of food that he didn't use when making your meal? No.
You are not just hiring me to take the photos of you. You are hiring me to take the photos and edit those photos beautifully for you. I love editing so, I do not give my RAW files for someone else to edit even if they say they know how and will do a beautiful job. I promise that I will deliver the BEST images to you beautifully edited and cohesive to what you see in my portfolio!

Can we have the RAW files?

05

It all depends on how long we are together and what is going on. But, typically I deliver about 50-60/hour we are together. Again, sometimes more or less depending on what is going on during that hour.

How many images do you deliver?

06

I edit all the BEST photos from your session! This does not always mean that I edit ALL your photos from your day. I shoot a lot of duplicate photos to be sure that I get the perfect photo. I will pick the perfect photo(s), edit, and deliver them to you! I promise I will deliver only the best images to you edited beautifully.

Will you edit and deliver ALL the images from my day?

07

I honestly believe that not all printers are alike! You should be printing your professional pictures from a professional printing lab. You can easily find these labs by searching for "printing labs in..." and put your city/state at the end.
If you order your prints through your online gallery they are printed through WHCC (White House Custom Color) which is a great lab! If you want to print photos on your own I would suggest mpix.com. They do a great job and are a professional printing company!
If you're looking to go somewhere down the street I would, again, suggest finding a professional printing lab near you! They will do a better job than Target, Walmart, Walgreens, or Costco could ever do!

I want to print my photos... where would you recommend I do that?

08

I keep the edited JPEG images for 1 year after your wedding. In that time you should download your images and save them offsite. I would suggest saving them in two places away from each other. Save on 2 separate hard drives or USBs, keep one at your home, and keep one at a friend or families home.
Also, you could sign up for Google Drive or Drop Box and save them there.
After the 1 year limit, I do not keep ALL of your images. I only keep those that are my absolute favorites. So be sure that you're backing up your photos safely!

P.S. There is an option to add a USB drive to your collection. I will add the images onto your USB drive and have it delivered to you! This is a great option as it creates a back up for you immediately.

How long do you keep our images after they are delivered?

09

Yours. That is it! I want to be able to wholly focus on you and your amazing day! Even if we are only together for 5 hours I will not book another session for that day! I won't divide my attention between two couples. Neither of you deserve that.
