From a groom’s perspective … After our first meeting with Jessilynn, we both said Yes. She was easy going, attentive, curious and had a wealth of information to share. There are probably books and lists out there that tell you what needs to be done, but nothing beats experience. Jessilynn also played wedding planner for us in many ways, not something we were expecting or paid for but simply something that came natural to her.
Personally I’m a bit camera shy, and hours of photos wasn’t something I was looking forward to. However, Jessilynn and her second photographer were able to quickly put me at ease, feel comfortable and provide direction. The result … It was great! Hours of photos melted together into a good time with friends, family and my new wife. Our entire party had nothing but amazing things to say about the photography experience and the pictures … oh the pictures.
Want to feel like a GQ model? This is it! The photos we got back were fantastic and the entire set played out our entire wedding in still frames. Capturing our moments, our friends, family and invited kids with great composure. A mix of formal, candid and fun group photos, we got it all!
Jessilynn is a warm hearted soul with great skill that will be there with you from beginning to end and available afterwards if you need it. Thanks Jessilynn!

Hiring Jessilynn for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made, and it all started with a happy coincidence! I attended a bridal show to start off our planning, and that’s where I encountered Jessilynn. I was immediately attracted to her beautiful work. She captured colours in a soft, romantic way while still maintaining a sharp but natural quality to her images. It was exactly what I was looking for, and I was ecstatic and surprised to hear that she was available for my wedding date. I thought that she would’ve been snatched up for sure! Lucky us!
Leading up to the wedding day, Jessilynn was a joy to work with. When we had questions, she would make sure to address them all, and we admired how responsive and accessible she was. We had our engagement shoot with her too and she spent more time than she had to with us to ensure we got many nice shots. Our favourite part of our wedding photography experience was when we were outdoors with our bridesmaids and groomsmen. Jessilynn had a great eye for which spots had the best lighting and views, and even though we were battling some minor outdoor elements (balloons flying in the wind, wasps near our bouquets), she made it relaxing and fun for us.
We just received our wedding photos and they look INCREDIBLE! I only wish that we had more time to get more photos outdoors! She was also good at handling our big crowd of family and friends, directing where they should go and what to do in order to get the best angles, and she did so in a professional manner. We highly recommend Jessilynn because she is very proactive, hardworking and responsible. What really impressed us was how timely she delivered her work and would always keep us updated on her progress after a shoot. She is an incredibly enthusiastic and talented photographer, and we can’t thank her enough for making us look so beautiful!

Jessilynn is awesome! We hired her for our wedding and her photos are fun and beautiful, bringing out our personalities in photos we’ll look back on with pride.
From the beginning, she was so helpful and responsive to all our questions, and offered much needed advice on all aspects of wedding planning, not just photography. It was amazing to work with someone who was more like a friend than just having a transaction-based contract.
Jessilynn works with a great team. We always felt taken care of. She listens to what envision for your shoot and makes it a reality, all the while offering tips to enhance the experience and overall achieving more than we could have imagined.
I would not hesitate to hire her again!

Jessilynn was a pleasure to work with! We were first drawn to her work by her beautiful portfolio. When we met Jessilynn in person, we immediately felt comfortable and emotionally connected to her and were drawn to her uplifting and kind personality. We greatly benefited from Jessilynn’s experiences since we were clueless about wedding planning and she had great suggestions!
She was incredibly flexible, professional, courteous, and helpful both before and during the wedding. On the big day, she stayed calm and collected, and organized dozens of family portraits which we were so worried about. She was an important reason why the day went so smoothly. We are so pleased with our photos!
Jessilynn was able to capture the intimate moments and emotions of our wedding and we would recommend her in a heartbeat.

I was referred to Jessilynn for my wedding, and let me tell you, she is phenomenal. Her work is beautiful and she’s an overall joy to be around. As a pretty laid back bride throughout the planning, I was wound a little tight on the day of and she managed to keep me calm and bring me back down when I became stressed. Totally not her job as a photographer, but so appreciated!
Her professionalism, patience and creativity are what make her top notch. She managed to take what would have been a simple photo and capture the feeling of the day. Very impressed! I highly recommend her for any event, especially weddings, and look forward to working with her again!

Jessilynn is really such a pleasure to work with in every way. She is timely and professional as well as warm and very comfortable to take photos with. My husband and I have been lucky enough to document our relationship from it’s beginning stages to now – our first pregnancy, with Jessilynn. She took very careful note of the kinds of shots that we wanted and they came out exactly as we pictured. We couldn’t be happier with her work! I am so thankful to have these pictures as memories of these very special times in our life.

A couple’s wedding may be the most important day in their shared lives. And what a daunting task to capture the day of celebration and to encompass the love they share with photographs. We couldn’t be happier with Jessilynn. From initial days of planning up to the event, she strove to understand us as people and to discover our tastes in photography. Jessilynn’s photographs are beautiful and have encapsulated the joy of our union!
Natalie & Matt
Jessilynn provided us with a full-day of coverage on wedding day. She set the scene for a wonderful “First Look” which was special and intimate and captured our excitement perfectly. Our venue was on the lake in Toronto, so our shots on the dock with the sunset were absolutely stunning. Jessilynn and her Assistant were both extremely professional throughout the day and very unobtrusive. The proof is in the pudding, because when it came down to choosing our photo for our photobook, we had a very hard time narrowing down the photos. Thank you for capturing our day so beautifully Jessilynn!

Jessilynn just has that eye for creating work that is the epitome of “pretty”. She is able to capture magical moments in a very short amount of time, and under a lot of pressure! Can’t recommend her enough!
