a daydream believer,

a natural light chaser

and your new favorite third wheel!

— I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Middle TN + beyond. I‘ve had a love and passion for photography from a very young age. (I know... It sounds cliche, but it’s true!) As an elementary student, I was often taking disposable Kodak cameras to school and snapping pictures of my friends or taking photos of nature around my house. It was inevitable that I would continue this love of creating beautiful images and capturing people being their most loving, joyful, and authentic selves. I am so blessed to make a career of it! My vision and talents have obviously improved over the last 20+ years, and now instead of capturing random candids of my friends and plant life in my front yard, my focus is capturing real life fairytale stories and documenting moments that make you feel happy!

“I don’t even know where to begin! From the moment I booked Jesslyn, she was very communicative and was willing to do anything to make my engagement/wedding photo dreams come to life, and she did better than I could’ve ever imagined. She continuously helped me on my wedding day beyond the photos. She truly wanted to be there for ME! I felt so loved and honored that I could spend my whole day with her, and I’m so thankful to have met a lifelong friend AND photographer through her!”

You can’t get back time


“We loved every single one of our images, but our favorite photos were the ones she took without us even knowing. The unposed, "just being us" pictures stole my heart.”
