I'm Jess and I am so excited that you're here! I am a lover of adventure, of candid moments, and of all things bathed in beautiful light. Look around, make yourself at home, and  let's get ready to create something amazing together!

Memories are something to be treasured and, perhaps, the magic of a photograph is it's ability to transport you back in time to some of life's happiest moments. I'm Jessica, a wedding and portrait photographer here in beautiful southern Virginia, and I've always been a creative soul. I love my dogs, love my horses, love my family, and I'm so blessed to be able to use photography to capture those precious moments for others. I hope to use my love of light and nature to bring you photographs that truly embody the essence of the moments you hold dear.

About the artist


Michael & Abigail

"We had so much FUN working with Jess! She helped us plan every detail for our photos and made us feel completely at ease in front of the camera.

"It was like we had known each other for years and Jess really helped bring our love story to life through her photos!"

"When I tell you Jess is the best, I mean she is the absolute BOMB! She's killing it! Thank you for making our photos a dream come true; absolutely PERFECT! We loved being with her, she's hilarious and made us feel so comfortable. And if your other half is like mine and hates posing for pictures, she literally just makes you feel like you're going with the flow!"

Brooke & Zack

"All we can say is WOW. These photos and Jessica's work speak for themselves. We wouldn't want anyone else to capture these moments for us. Jess is so humble and her work is pure gold. Her portraits are exquisite, she can handle anything thrown her way, and you will not be disappointed!"

Crystal & Oscar

MORE Information

Location, Location, Location?
A key part of your perfect portrait session or wedding is choosing the location/venue and making sure it suits your style! As an artist, I love new and unique places that showcase my clients and their personalities, places that set your soul on fire. Our local area of southern Virginia is breathtaking but my heart (and camera!) have also been called to the coast, the low country, and to breezy mountain tops.  I am always on the lookout and I would love to hear your ideas as well! If you are up for the adventure, I will be anywhere you need me. I happily travel for sessions and weddings!

Digital Downloads & Printing Rights?
Laurel Lane clients are treated to high resolution digital downloads of all finished portraits, as well as a full print release delivered through each gallery. Although there is nothing like printed, heirloom quality photographs and albums, today, the sky is the limit when it comes to how you want to preserve your photos and what you want to print them on. I believe in my work and want you, the client, to be able to display it proudly!
