Another wedding on the beautiful #disneydream !!! My home at sea! I love this image cause of all the pink on her dress! Always #chasinglight . . . . . . . . . . #disneybride #jessicaleabride #dcl #disneycruisewedding #fireworks #castaway
From the 1st to the 9th... I can't wait to share what we create this go round! Who else is excited??? Just me? Bueller?
I feel like people should schedule more night time sessions... I mean look at how cool this is... photos using this technique are always more colorful, and you can do really fun things with light! Anyone recently engaged? Winter is coming up, lets schedule your engagement session around Night of Lights super fun Christmas lights, there are a few streets in town that do great displays. If we start planning now we can do something really fun and unique! Who's up for it!?
This is it, officially the last week (well 5 days really) to choose your fall mini session date and claim the 10 free digital downloads! For those that don't know: Every year I run fall mini sessions the same away, I choose a weekend, hope it works for everyone, wait for bookings. This year, I'm changing that. This year fall mini sessions will run from 9/1 - 11/4 ... Basically from now till time change, while we still have the gorgeous fall light in the evenings, and since weekends are almost completely booked through the end of the year, most sessions will need to be during the week in the evening. You control the theme of your mini session, if you want to run around in Christmas sweaters or toss fall leaves in the air it's completely up to you! Sessions outside of Jax will be an additional travel fee. These will be 30 min sessions. Perfect for updating your family photos, holiday cards, for the love of pumpkin spice, or whatever you'd like. Sessions are $200, a deposit (non-refundable of course) of $50 is due to hold your slot and if you book before 8/31 you'll receive an additional 10 digital images (bringing the grand total of images from your session to 15) As always if you have any questions please feel free to ask, and share with all your friends on facebook, instagram, and twitter!
Just pulled into TPC Sawgrass for today's wedding, working with the awesome @jaygrubbphotography again (he keeps my empty weekends interesting!!!) and testing out my @holdfastgear #moneymaker for the first time at a wedding!!! (also a gift from the lovely Jay Grubb!!) But mainly I'm regretting not wearing my plaid pants.... sigh...
I have a couple of clients in Texas and understand hurricanes all too well. As the storm subsides I pray there isn't too much damage! . . . . . . . #texas #hurricanehenry #prayingfortexas
Y'all, my family tree is weird... (Not Lannister weird, but weird) My parents married and divorced before I even really knew, both remarried and had kids, and so on. Fast forward through lots of drama to Monday... The day of the Eclipse, and Marla's senior session... Marla is my sister's sister... that's right, you heard it, my first sentence of this post was a warning of weird... so in this weird way she's kinda like a step sister once removed by divorce... IDK, I can't really explain I just know, she's a doll! . We had so much fun walking around St. Augustine for her senior session! Isn't she adorable!!! . Hair & Makeup: @krrenee (Marla's actual, full, sister.... ugh it's easier if I draw a map!)
If I ever get married again, I want a Jewish wedding! OR at very least some of the Jewish traditions. I mean, I'm gonna need a super sturdy chair and maybe Jason Momoa (@prideofgypsies for those that don't know) lifting me (listen it's my dream, don't kill it!) but I digress. I'm still reliving the fun we had at @bridget_mcdonald197 's wedding! I'm so grateful to have been a part of it!
Join me in wishing a very Happy Birthday to my Mom! The lady responsible for all my creative genes!!! . . . . . . . . #birthdaygirl #mom #birthday
Class of 2018: It's time for senior photos!!! Off to St. Augustine today... but this time, for a senior session! One of my favorite types of sessions for sure... This is one of two this month, I'm excited for both! Senior sessions are the one place you can really showcase your personality at such a unique time and place in life, your senior year! I can't wait to create these memories! Book before September 15th for an additional free 16x20 canvas!
A very very happy wedding day to these two lovelies!!! I cannot wait to capture this day! I have loved Bridget since the moment we met, some 7+ years ago I believe. She's such a wonderful person and David is such a great guy. He's very funny and sweet, I can't wait to get this day started at the lovely @oneoceanresort Stay tuned for sneak peeks!
I can't hardly believe it. I'm officially booked for my 11th Cruise Wedding... This makes me a Platinum level Castaway! I'm in awe, and so humbled, and so excited! I'm a Disney nut (as most all of you should really know by now) and so grateful to all of you who've decided to take me with you on your wedding adventures, giving me this really cool gift! Thank you, Thank you! Thank you!!! . . . . . . . . . #dcl #disbride #disneycruise #disneycruisebride #disneycruiseline #disneybride #bride #married
Have you noticed? I've been trying out different posting times (since I'm scheduling these now, I can get all fancy) Before I would just post at night before bed, but now I'm trying to post at different times of day to see when my followers are most active. While doing this social experiment I might as be direct. When do you find yourself browsing Instagram the most. Morning? Lunchbreak? Before Bed? (inquiring minds, and business owners, want to know!)
Fall mini sessions are under a new format this year! Are you excited??? I want you to tell me, what you're looking for out of fall/winter time sessions. A photo to put on the holiday card? Updated family images to give as gifts? Tell me your plans!
I've recently started taking advantage of using @planoly #planoly for my instagram posts. It's helped greatly to be able to look at my layout and plan what I'd like to use. But sometimes I upload random images cause I think they look cool at the time. In this case I wanted to show more of what my reception photos look like. So you can really get an idea of what I do throughout a wedding day. This image and another like it have been shuffled around countless times for other more traditional Jessica Lea shots... but I'm trying to learn to trust my instinct and what I had planned for... I love love love weird lighting for receptions and really get to show off what I learn over at @breakingtradition_jlp and implement into receptions! What do y'all think?
It's about time for another boudoir image on IG... actually it's about time for more boudoir period!!! Lets do this thing... Remember if you want a book, viewfinder, or canvases to give as a Christmas gift this year your session needs to be done by October 14th!!!! That's right around the corner, especially since I only have 3 available session dates in September!!! Shoot me a message, lets get you scheduled!
Happy Sunday!!! Here's a photo of an adorable Groom for your viewing pleasure...
For reasons, I don't really understand.... other than it's beautiful light, great location and best time of day (ugh) I did a beach sunrise session this morning. The results are awesome..... but I'm definitely gonna nap today!
It's time. I'm finally getting to edit the anniversary shoot from Castle Otttis... If you need me I'll be burried in my office. Ignore the sqeeeeeeeeeeeek you may hear across town... I'm writing this message mainly to torture my clients... aren't I sweet! XOXOXO
