A Note from Grace & Cameron

"words cannot express what these photos make us feel. our images made the entire wedding day even more beautiful"

Jess and Nick are BRILLIANT! From our first email to the grand exit they gave us a first-class experience. They are prompt, professional, fun and creative. We knew without a doubt our wedding day was in incredible hands with Jess and Nick. We were able to really enjoy the entire day while knowing every moment was being captured in between.  Jess and Nick have a way of making you feel utterly comfortable, fully yourself and altogether chic in front of their camera. 
We got incredible sneak peeks the night of our wedding and loved that we could share those images with all of our friends and family just moment after they were captured. Words cannot express what our wedding photos make us feel. Our images made the entire wedding day even more beautiful. Jess & Nick are truly sensational, they give abundantly and provide a remarkable first-class experience.  

A Note from Caitlin & Kevin

"They did not miss a single moment and captured our day remarkably."

Choosing Jess Rice Photography was the absolute best wedding planning decision we made. Jess was amazing in the months and days leading up to our destination wedding. She was helpful, proactive, and so easy to communicate with leading up to the wedding day, we just knew we were in good hands! Jess made the remote planning and organizing so easy on us and we are so grateful to her. As for the wedding day, Jess and Nick captured our wedding so perfectly. They did not miss a single moment. From the details, to the requested shot list, to the naturally occurring and personal moments, they really captured everything. We were so comfortable with Nick and Jess; they really were so fun to work with and made us feel so special. They were such an important part of our day and we are forever grateful that we were able to find Jess Rice Photography! We received sneak peaks and access to our full online gallery very timely. We were completely blown away by all of the beautiful photos. Everyone who has seen our wedding album is so impressed and complimentary. We will cherish these photos forever!

A Note from Savannah & Mitch

"every image they captured elevates our day. We feel so much more looking at these photos than we thought possible."  

Jess and Nick are unbeatable. They blew our expectations out of the water and I cannot recommend them enough. Our favorite part about working with Jess and Nick is that from the minute you meet them they feel like your best friends and they truly make you feel like family, which is the best feeling when you're in front of the camera and on. your wedding day.

Neither of us are naturals in front of the camera but Jess and Nick guided us every step of the way while also letting us actually enjoy the moments together. We felt so at home with them and somehow
every image they captured elevates our day. We feel so much more looking at these photos than we even thought possible. 

A Note from Brittany & David

"The moment we met Jess & Nick we wanted to be their friends. They made us so incredible comfortable"

We absolutely loved working with Jess and Nick, it was a complete joy. They were incredibly professional and made every part of the day so seamless. They made us feel so comfortable in every part of the day. They sent us pictures the night of our wedding and we were blown away seeing these really incredible photos what felt like moments after they happened. The moment we met Jess and Nick we wanted to be their friends and we think that connection is so important when you're choosing your wedding photographers. They were there through some really intimate, sweet and fun moments and they always made those moments even better some how. They helped us pose in ways that felt truly genuine and captured us in ways that we love. They made every step of the process so easy and seamless. Jess and Nick are truly lovely. We cannot express how much we appreciate them. 

A Note from Nicole & Patric

"Every photo brought tears to our eyes. Reliving those moments through their work enamored us."

Nothing compares to the decision we made to have Jess and Nick capture our most important day. They've been with us through every step of our journey. They were there the day Patric proposed, we traveled out to California to have our engagement shoot with them and they were a crucial part of our entire wedding. We cannot say enough incredible things about them. They made us feel completely natural in front of the camera and captured moments we didn't even realize from our wedding day. They are so quick at getting a ton of photos and it really allowed us to actually enjoy our wedding day while having full confidence every moment we cherished would be captured. They got our pictures back to us so quickly and every photo brought tears to our eyes, reliving those moments through their work enamored us! We will forever fly them anywhere we are in the world to capture our life's milestones. 

A Note from Mike & Caroline

"Having her as a photographer was like having a best friend there!" 

Our wedding day was a dream that these images will help us relive for years to come! To say she is talented is an understatement. Having her as a photographer was like having a best friend there, she and her husband made it so easy and fun! Together they captured our whole teams amazing work and I couldn't be more grateful for that. Everything that went into this day was a step above and I wish there was a way to go back in time and do it all over again!!!!

A Note from Kendall & Kevin

"Best decision we ever made!"

Our initial meeting with J+N was in our local coffee shop in town. They were both very friendly, professional and were able to answer all of our questions. My mother was planning and attending to the majority of the wedding details herself since I was out-of-state most of the engagement time. Therefore, I needed someone that I felt comfortable with and confident in their abilities. Best decision we ever made!

With Jessica and Nick both taking pictures during the wedding ceremony and reception, we ended up with so many beautiful pictures. They were extremely organized, easy to work with, and very professional. Everything went smoothly and they worked well with the other vendors and the venue staff. 

Jessica and Nick had all kinds of ideas for interesting, unique and beautiful photos of the entire wedding party and the bride and groom photos. The photos were absolutely beautiful and they were ready for viewing within two weeks! I would highly recommend them!

A Note from Megan & Andrew

"An experience to swoon over!"

Jess and Nick were so friendly, kind and helpful with every question I asked (and trust me I asked a lot!).  My fiancé & I decided to move forward with an engagement photo shoot to make sure we liked her style and that we were a good fit. The whole experience was so easy and so much fun with Jessica. We had dinner with Jessica and her husband Nick, who is the second shooter, to discuss the engagement photo shot list, outfits, etc. and it turned into a fabulous evening of getting to know each other. We left that dinner knowing we were in the best hands. Jessica also set up a pinterest board for me where she suggested outfits, poses, hair styling, etc. This extra support was so thoughtful and went above and beyond. And they were so flexible when it came to our ideas, and even let us throw confetti!

Day of the engagement shoot could not have gone more smoothly. My fiancé is not a big fan of being in front of the camera but Nick & Jessica made us feel so comfortable and we had SO MUCH FUN! Laughing, dancing, and drinking champagne made our photos turn out stunning and they truly felt like us! They didn’t feel staged, and they didn’t feel forced. We love our photos because they look like us on our very best day. We now consider Jessica & Nick to be our friends and couldn’t imagine anyone else being our photographers on our special day. 

A Note from Tiffany & Delano

"Hands down the best photographers in California!"

I truly could not have picked a better photographer for our wedding. Jessica and Nick, the husband and wife photography duo were absolutely spectacular. They made us laugh and feel comfortable all day long. Even in the intimate moments where tears were flowing Jessica and Nick made us feel safe. The entire bridal party thought they were a hoot and couldn't stop talking about how much fun the "dreaded photos" actually ended up being. Our families were beyond impressed with their efficiency and respect and are still raving about them. They completely took away any stress and captured the most beautiful images we have ever seen. Their style so perfectly caught every candid moment, every thought out detail and every cherished laugh. Not only did they blow us away on our wedding day but we had our photos back so quickly. If you are looking for a husband and wife dynamic duo look no further! You WANT TO hire Jessica and Nick, they were worth every cent and even more.
