I believe in serving my clients with my whole heart and striving to be an invaluable part on their team of wedding vendors. If you're looking for someone who genuinely gets excited to be at your wedding, who will bring you a glass of water (or champagne) when you're thirsty, who will bustle your dress for you, pin your hair if it falls, fix your make-up after you've cried, and most importantly, pray with you when you're nervous... then we should chat more!
I strive to make this part of the wedding-planning process fun!

Upon inquiry, if I am still available for your date, you will receive a complete Wedding Investment Guide (via email) with everything you need to know about Package Options and my most Frequently Asked Questions. Next, we will chat over the phone to get to know each other and answer any other questions you may have. If you're a fun-loving and joyful couple who wants an EXPERIENCE more than just gorgeous images (that should be a given), and to make a new friend in the process, keep scrolling...
In order to give each of my couples the experience they deserve, I take on a LIMITED number of weddings per month and per year. Once you find out your date is available, turn your dreams into a reality by securing it right away. Upon booking, I always suggest you celebrate with a "happy dance" - these are the first big decisions you will be making as a couple and they deserve to be celebrated! I will then mail you a beautiful 55 page Bridal Guide to help you plan your wedding and get the most out of your Five Fourteen Photography Experience.
Now, the fun begins! Once you've secured your date, we start planning the Engagement Session. Go ahead and start thinking about a location that is meaningful to you. Don't worry if you don't have one; I have plenty of beautiful suggestions all over the Atlanta and North Georgia area. Your only job during the e-session is to HAVE FUN and LOVE EACH OTHER! That's it! It's my job to make you feel comfortable and like a pro - and trust me, you WILL!
I tell all of my brides, "Weddings are my LIFE. I want to be here for you beyond just your images". I mean that with every ounce of my soul! Everything from Vendor Recommendations, Dress Shops, and planning your timeline with your Photography in mind - I've got you covered! A few weeks before your big day, we will walk through your timeline, go over your family shot list, and answer any last questions you may have. Rest assured that when I arrive on your big day, you will be at ease knowing to expect a joyful and stress free experience!
Eeeeeek! It's FINALLY HERE! Your only job on your wedding day is to look pretty and have fun! All eyes will be on you and you can relax knowing that I am on your dream-team of vendors and that I will do everything in my power to ensure you have a flawless day! I will work my tail off to provide you with timeless, classic, AND creative images that you will cherish forever.
After your wedding day, I get right to work on editing your images to match our bright and colorful style while also ensuring your skin is flawless. Once your Online Gallery is ready, you will receive that beloved email that says "OPEN TOGETHER". We suggest cuddling up on the couch together with a glass of wine (or coffee) as you scroll through them. You may also want to keep a box of tissues nearby; all of the sweet emotions will come flooding back as you relive your wedding day through your images.
When is the last time you used a CD? Odds are you may not have ever. Digital storage devices are so ever-changing that they are becoming obsolete as soon as they arrive on the shelves of your favorite store! The handcrafted Signature Heirloom Wedding Album is one thing that will never fade and it is the one area where my couples typically choose to invest more in! All of my clients get an heirloom album and soon after gallery delivery we will begin the design process. We will work together on a design you love with the images you love most! Once you finalize your design and pick any desired upgrades, it won't be long before your final item from your Five Fourteen Wedding Photography Experience is in your hands.
Five Fourteen Photography was the absolute BEST choice I made for my whole wedding experience. Jessica from day one has been the most genuine, loving soul I have ever met! She sent us so many small gifts of appreciation along the way that meant the world to us. We were so nervous but Jessica put us at ease and gave such clear directions. Any time I had a question she would text me back so fast. The day of the wedding she was more than a photographer- she was an amazing friend. Her kind soul and amazing team helped us beyond the scope of just taking pictures- she helped us put on my veil and crawled underneath a table for a lipgloss that fell- above and beyond her call of duty. She also got on the dance floor and busted a move with us which I loved!!! Now let’s talk about the pictures: Breathtaking!!!! Her style is unmatched. Engagement photos were flawless and the wedding photos were even better. To be honest- I have had the photos for a week and everyday I find a new favorite!! There are not enough kind words- there is not enough time in the world for me to tell you JUST HOW MAJOR SHE IS!!! I love Five Fourteen Photography! Day one to even now 3 weeks after my wedding- she is a true talent who was made to shoot weddings! Not a single bad word can be spoken about her and her team!!! Thank you Jessica for not only being a beautiful soul but for making my husband and I look like models!! I love you!!

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!
"A DREAM come true! The BEST INVESTMENT of the ENTIRE WEDDING! "
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!
"She HELPED make our (now) micro-wedding SO FULL"
Natalie + Chris
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!"
Taylor + Reid
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!
"Jess is ALL my husband and I TALK ABOUT when it comes to OUR WEDDING!! "
Ashley + Matt
"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!
"Easily the BEST DECISION we made! She was the BIGGEST BLESSING..."
Riley + Mark
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!
"MORE THAN JUST PHOTOGRAPHY! She's such a POSITIVE, UP BEAT, and ENCOURAGING person!"
Briana + Tristan
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!
"THE BEST DECISION THAT WE MADE ! A DREAM to work with!"

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!

Jessica gives CLEAR DIRECTIONS and has SO many tricks to create those PICTURE-PERFECT MOMENTS!
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%!!!
"She's so CARING, THOUGHTFUL, and RESPONSIVE"!
Kelsey + Mitchell
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!!
"The AMOUNT OF DETAIL she puts into capturing THE BEST shots is AMAZING "
Natalie + Josh
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!!!
"EXPERIENCE and PROFESSIONALISM was very obvious from the minute we first met"!
Lauren + Viktor
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!
Emily + Josh
"Jess DESERVES MORE than 5 STARS! You can tell how PASSIONATE she is and it makes all the difference!"

My goal is to make your big day even more joyful, simply by serving you well throughout the entire process. Your love story deserves the luxury of a full-service wedding photography experience!
If you're looking for someone who feels genuinely excited to be a part of your wedding, who will bring you a glass of water (or champagne) when you're thirsty, who will bustle your dress for you, who will fix your make-up after you've cried, who will serve you beyond your wildest dreams, and who will pray with you when you're nervous… then we should chat!
Full Service Luxury Wedding Photography Experience begins at
Of course! Typically, 8 hours is plenty, but you may want to add more time to ensure you get that epic exit shot (9-10 hours). Because of demand, the most important thing is to secure your wedding date as soon as possible; we can always add more coverage as we get closer to your date and as we begin planning your photographic timeline based on your specific needs.
CAN YOU HELP ME DETERMINE HOW MUCH WEDDING DAY COVERAGE I WILL NEED?
A typical gallery can include anywhere between 600-900 photos; the exact amount varies for each wedding depending on the hours of coverage you have. Your online gallery will include your beautifully edited, high-resolution files that you can download and print anywhere you'd like. You will also have the option to order beautiful prints and canvases (through our professional lab) directly from your gallery and have them shipped right to your front door in a speedy timeline!
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL OUR GALLERY INCLUDE, AND CAN WE PRINT THE PHOTOS OURSELVES?
Yes! I LOVE traveling for my clients! For a destination wedding, or any wedding requiring travel 90 minutes or more each way, I ask that you reserve a two-night stay (the night before and the night of your wedding) in a nearby hotel. I may also add travel fees to any wedding requiring more than 2 hours of travel from my home in Gainesville, Georgia. Please inquire for more details!
WE'RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING! ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TRAVEL?
The engagement session is included in my most popular wedding packages because I truly believe that it is a VITAL part of the entire process.
During your engagement session, you’ll have the chance to get to know me and experience how I shoot and how I handle posing and lighting. This session will make a HUGE impact on how your wedding day flows! I will arrive on your wedding day already knowing how you two interact, what your favorite side is, what your best poses are and how to photograph you in a genuine way! What I will learn about you during your engagement session is invaluable, and you will feel like such a pro on your big day because of the great practice you had during your engagement session.
ARE ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS NECESSARY?
You can order your album at any time; however, you receive a better deal when ordered with a package. My Signature Heirloom Wedding Albums are professionally designed from beginning to end to tell the story of the day as it unfolds. The pages are thick, flush-mounted, and beautifully coated to withstand a lifetime of enjoyment. These are the kind of heirlooms that will still be beautiful when your great grandchildren flip through them!
Because CDs, USB Drives, and other digital media will likely be obsolete in a few years, it’s important to include my Signature Heirloom Wedding Albums as part of my wedding packages to protect your memories. Your Signature Heirloom Wedding Album will always be that one tangible memoir that will never fade, allowing it to be passed down and enjoyed for generations to come.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND A SIGNATURE HEIRLOOM WEDDING ALBUM INSTEAD OF USB DRIVES?
It is my goal that your wedding day runs as smoothly as it possibly can! To ensure this, I include timeline planning as part of our preparation process for all couples. We start planning months in advance so that on your wedding day, you will know exactly what time to have your hair and make-up completed, when we will start getting you in your dress, when the portraits begin, and even when it is time to hide before your guests arrive.
I also have a few other organizational techniques up my sleeve; such as planning a comprehensive family shot list. We go over this list together and walk through all the possible combinations and options to ensure that no family member is inadvertently forgotten. Leave the hard work up to me - I can plan the perfect photographic experience for your wedding day!
