I'm a self-proclaimed Scent-aholic who can almost always be seen wearing flats. My perfume and candle collection may borderline obsession and I love all things HGTV & Food Network.
This is me; your hair-fixing, dress-bustling, makeup-dabbing, dance floor-dancing wedding photographer! You can catch me serving my clients in more ways than just their photos. Once upon a time I was an aerial photographer for tandem skydivers. After about 10 years in the sport and 1,500+ jumps, I decided to hang up my parachute and moved on to photographing weddings. If I'm being totally honest - they're just as exciting!!!
I'm an adventure seeker at heart (met the hubs skydiving!), will forever be a "foodie", and believe Joy is the most magnetic force in the world!
He's my handsome beard-wearing, pizza-loving, Marvel-movie fanatic who is definitely the rock of our family. He's competitive in nature and can be found on his free days at the gun range working on his long range target skills.
The husbeast and I love just about any outdoor adventure just as much as we enjoy an evening snuggled up on the couch checked into hotel- sweatpants. Because both of us grew up pretty close to the beach (Rick-Panama City Beach, FL ; Jess-Jones Beach, NY), we visit any time we can, usually packing snorkel or scuba gear.
We cater our vacation plans around the food we want to try and the oceans we get to explore...
She's our curly headed teenager who would much rather be wearing joggers than a pair of jeans and she spends most of her time at the gym. Can you believe we've watched Grey's Anatomy together every week for nearly her entire life!
We are parents, too! This is the beautiful, smart, and talented, Macy. She's a pretty awesome gymnast who loves competing on the cheer mat more than just about anything! She just began her college journey last year with creative dreams of being a graphic artist - creativity must run in the family ;)
We're parents to the sweetest, smartest, and most talented young lady we know...
Her favorite thing to do is play tug-of-war with her rope, sometimes plays catch, and has the cutest affinity for pillows! That's right, pillows! You can almost always find her laying her head on one somewhere!
We are the proud owners of three rescues! We have two all black kitties (did you know black cats are the least likely to get adopted?) and one 55 lb energetic puppy. Meet Leia (aka "Puppers"), our Amstaff & Boxer mix. When we got her she had a shattered (yes, shattered!) foot, she was at least 10lbs underweight, and she had obviously been abused. She's much loved and very spoiled now, though! We keep telling her she won the puppy lottery, but maybe it was us?!
Saving one animal may not change the world, but for that one animal, their world will certainly change...
Jess is a DREAM come true!! She went above and beyond in every way possible. She made my non-photogenic hubby and I feel like supermodels during both our engagement & wedding photos. Excellent at keeping in touch and were always available for questions or discussing ideas during the months leading up to our wedding. When our wedding day arrived, they rocked it! Jess PERSONALLY helped calm me down when I got butterflies. We had an intimate wedding and Jess truly felt like part of the family! I was overjoyed when I saw the first "sneak peek" photo and BLOWN away when she delivered ALL the photos way earlier than anticipated. Hands down the best investment of the entire wedding and I will be recommending her to everyone I know! Book her - you will NOT be disappointed!

We were fortunate enough to be able to work with Jess for our third attempt at getting married during the pandemic. After scrambling to move our wedding to another state at the last minute due to travel restrictions, she stepped right in and took a year’s worth of planning and squeezed it into 3 weeks time. She was comprehensive, without overwhelming us as we made a million changes. She also stepped up and took control of our day (we no longer had our wedding planner with us) in a way that helped us capture everything, but knew when to give us our space and time to give us our private moments. She helped make our now micro wedding feel so full. Her second photographer, was also incredible and both worked so well together as a team. Both women were amazing, and helped make our day feel so special! She knew our venue so well, and our photos were SO beautiful. These are photos we are going to cherish for the rest of our lives!

Hiring FiveFourteenPhotography for our wedding was the best decision we made! From the very first phone call I had with Jess, I knew that she would be our wedding photographer! I could instantly tell that she was so genuine and truly cared about her clients. She took the time to get to know my fiancé and I and answer the million questions I had for her. The conversation never felt rushed, nor has any conversation since I hired her felt that way! The little touches that she adds without even asking mean more to me than I can explain! I received so many special packages in the mail from Jess throughout my engagement and it made me more and more excited for the wedding day! Our families and friends also can’t stop talking about how much they love Jess and how much fun she made the wedding day! HIRE HER- YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!!
"So GENUINE and TRULY CARES about her clients! The BEST DECISION we made!"

ONE YEAR LATER: Jess is ALL my husband and I talk about when it comes to our wedding! The first conversation I had with Jess consisted of us talking like we were BEST friends. Jess is SO personal. Throughout the year long engagement, Jess would send little small gifts with bible verses AND Jess prayed for us. My husband and I choose Jess due to her AMAZING skills and because she prayed for us as we started our journey to husband and wife. Jess made our wedding day run smooth from the time she arrived at the wedding until the time we left. Jess is WORTH every penny and MORE. Photography last a lifetime, but making a friend along the way was just icing on the cake. THANK YOU JESS for being amazing and not to mention our wedding photos ARE GORGEOUS!

"Anything I could possibly say about Jess would be an absolute understatement. From day one my now husband and I were in love. I could (and did) text Jess any day of the week with questions and she always had an answer for me. From vendor suggestions, to when do I need to feed my guests... She was the BIGGEST blessing Mark and I could have had! Even day of, she made sure everything was running smoothly and kept me in the loop. We got so many compliments on just how wonderful she is. And just for the record, you would be doing your wedding a disservice by not hiring Five Fourteen Photography. I can hands down say she was easily the best decision we made. Love you!

Wow! From the first time we met Jess for our engagement shoot, she made us feel so comfortable. You can truly see that Photography is her passion! When our family and friends met her at the wedding, they instantly loved her as well. We received sooo many compliments on our pictures! You get more than just Photography with Jessica! She's such a positive, up beat and encouraging person! Jessica would let us know that she was there if we needed anything along the way. If you’re looking for top notch photographer, look no further! Five Fourteen Photography is AMAZING , and I can’t imagine going through this process without her!

Jess was by far the best decision that we made during our wedding planning! I never had to worry for a moment about the photography. I was so lucky to find her and she was a dream to work with. She's adorable, super professional and helpful, and extremely good at what she does. She put us at ease from the beginning... And then Jessica helped me nail down the day-of timeline and was available any time I had questions or concerns. When she says that she loves weddings, she means it!! On the wedding day, I could not have been more happy about our decision to hire her. She captured every moment, from every angle. Jess was super prepared (she was the only person who thought to bring extra bobby pins) and made us feel so comfortable. The pictures came back super-fast, and I am so happy with them! I highly recommend Five Fourteen Photography to anyone!

Jessica's photos of our engagement and wedding day left my husband and I speechless. I never realized how quickly a picture can bring back emotions, chills and of course memories. That's exactly what she did for my Husband and I. Jessica has a God given talent to not only take pictures but provide an unbelievably relaxed and fun environment. My Husband and I decided to do a first look for our wedding, and it was probably the best decision we could have made. I don't know how Jessica did it, but it felt like a date. I like to say that I went on a date with my Husband two hours before our wedding. It was exactly what I needed to calm my nerves. Sometimes pictures can feel posed or you just don't even know what to do in them. Jessica gives clear directions and has SO many tips and tricks to create those picture-perfect moments. Her faith and love for the Lord is also something that makes her abilities so spectacular. She prayed for us on the days leading up to the Wedding and she prayed over me with my bridesmaids before I went down the aisle. It is hard for me to describe how thankful I am for that. If you want a photographer who will genuinely care about you, your Husband, and the quality of your pictures… then look no further. Five Fourteen will take care of you!

Jess is more than just a photographer - she feels like family! We didn't know what to expect with this whole experience, but she was there every step of the way. The experience of working with her - our initial interview, the small touches throughout, the sweet reminders, the care packages - it made us feel so loved and important throughout the process. Jess even stepped in to help me work out details that I was stressing about which is not her responsibility, but she did with such a loving heart. Her work has been so impeccable and so beautiful, and we have been blown away by all of the images we've received. Also, I'm not a fan of getting my photo taken. Jess made me feel not only comfortable, but I felt beautiful in person and in the photos. She was absolutely worth every penny and one of the best decisions we made! We could not be happier with her work and look forward to having her photograph us in the future!

There is no comparison to her standard of service and product. In addition to her amazing skills, she is genuinely loving and supportive. I, Hannah, remember my first conversation with Jessica and her desire to meet our needs. I shared about the passing of my mother and the difficult emotions I experienced in her absence. Jessica was supportive, empathetic and encouraging. Her professionalism was beyond helpful for me as I crafted my DIY wedding in a very short time. She was always available and willing to help with a variety of questions and decisions, most of which did not even relate to photography! This is the kind of service, people rather, that Cory and I wanted to be surrounded by and assisted by on the day of our wedding. The photo quality was amazing and they were always quick to give us updates and send the pictures our way! We could not be more satisfied.

My husband and I could not have had a more fitting photographer couple for us than Jessica!!! And all of our family and friends agree! From the time we asked her to photograph our wedding till now, she has been so caring, thoughtful, and responsive. We even received sweet, inspirational gifts in the mail leading up to the wedding! Jessica made me and all of my girls feel beautiful and at ease while we were getting ready and during our bridal party photos. One of my favorite moments was when Jessica said a prayer for us in the bridal room. As a fellow Christian, that meant more to me than words can say!!! Jess went above and beyond to get the best photos possible. My husband and I loved seeing each other's faces light up as we went through all of the gorgeously captured memories. We were highly impressed; we recommend her 100%!!!

Jessica was absolutely amazing at our wedding! The moment she walked in on the morning of the wedding while my girls and I were getting ready, I knew she was going to make the day so much fun. She ensured me that I had nothing to worry about and the day was going to be a perfect day. The amount of detail she puts into capturing the best shots is amazing. She makes you feel so comfortable to where everything feels so natural, and even has fun ways to capture pictures that are breathtaking. We could not have asked for a better photographer and look forward to using Jessica for many more precious life moments. Thank you for everything you did Jessica to make our day run smoothly and by capturing the start of a new beginning for Josh and I! You are the best!!

We can't say enough great things about how amazing Jessica is!!! From beginning to end with our whole wedding process she has been incredible to work with. Jessica's experience and professionalism was very obvious from the minute we first met her. Jessica went out of her way to continuously stay in touch and make you feel special throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding. The quality of her photos are absolutely stunning and I am so thankful she was the one to capture the biggest and happiest day of our lives!!!

Jess deserves more than 5 stars!! From the very first phone conversation I had with Jess all the way up until our wedding day, she has been there for any questions or concerns I had, always with a quick response! I felt like I knew her from the start. She made my husband and I, as well as all of our friends and family on the wedding day, feel totally comfortable. Jess was there to wipe away sweat before pictures during our 90 degree October wedding! She knew how much I wanted a veil picture and went above and beyond to ensure I got that! She sent us gifts and cards along the way to encourage us and Jess always made sure I knew I could come to her whenever I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed with wedding planning. Everyone can tell how passionate she is about what she does and that makes all the difference. I could not recommend her enough!
