I was born and raised deep down south in Florida where catfish is a dinner staple and the girls and the oranges are just a little sweeter! I decided that I wanted to explore more of the countryside and eventually ended up in a quaint little town I call “home sweet home” in Celina, Texas. I share my life with my wonderful husband and second photographer Shea, two very grateful step kids, our handsome Pug Smash and our adorable Frenchton Fergie. They add so much joy to my life. The farms and sunsets here in Celina are indescribable.
Photography stole my heart 16 years ago. I have watched photography grow as an industry at a very young age and I followed through with my heart to become a professional photographer. The best way to describe my passion for photography is that ‘I fell in love with love.’ I feel totally fulfilled when I capture my client’s most intimate and precious moments. The pleasure I get from knowing that my clients will remember their day forever, is so fulfilling. Some photographers focus on one style of photography, but I focus on the entire life cycle. It is rewarding to follow my clients through all stages of their life. I follow them from the proposal, engagement, wedding day, maternity, newborn and all stages of their growing family. I shoot all over the DFW area and also travel to exciting destinations to capture those memories. I would love to document your lifestyle.

We absolutely loved Jessica!!! Jessica was so wonderful to work with. We interviewed a number of photographers, and knew right away that we wanted Jessica to capture our wedding. There are so many things to worry about when planning the wedding and honestly once we chose Jessica she took all the worry out of the photography part! She was extremely responsive, helpful and does amazing work. She gave a sneak peek within days of the wedding and all of our friends could not stop talking about how great the shots where she took. She truly captured our celebration and our personalities in the pictures!!! I would highly recommend using Jessica!!

I met Jessica at a friend’s wedding (where she was the photographer) and she was the first person I contacted and ended up using as our wedding photographer. She not only takes beautiful pictures, but she’s great to work with. She really listens to your vision and gets involved to make sure she gets you exactly what you want. I have gotten so many compliments on my wedding pics – I could not be more pleased with her work.
My bridal shower was covered by Jessica and she completely out performed my expectations. Our pictures were the perfect amount of group shots & candids which are my faves! I got my pictures in the mail so fast and was able to share them at our destination wedding without stressing about having them the last minute. We’ll book her again for sure!

There are usually 2 types of professional wedding photographers; Canon and Nikon users. I’m a Canon girl. I’ve tried both and ultimately, I prefer the overall result of Canon. I currently use the NEW Canon 5D Mark iii and for a backup, the Canon 5D Mark ii. I also use “L” (professional grade) lenses. You can checkout my equipment here “What’s in my bag” post.
When I put my magic touch on your photos, it takes about 4 to 6 weeks for portraits and 3 to 4 weeks for weddings. You will receive a link via email that takes you to your online gallery.
I fell in love with my camera in 1998 and I haven’t looked back since.
For weddings, you will first need to contact me to verify I have your wedding day available. For portraits, you can go to the calendar and pick your date and time and book right now! Do not wait too long. Most weddings are booked a year or more in advance. After we verify the date is available, you will have to make your deposit before that date is officially yours. You will also need to complete a contract (weddings). I like to meet my clients in person to get these details done. Your remaining balance is due 1 month before your wedding date. Be aware that verbal verification that I have your date available does not guarantee you are reserved for that day. ONLY your deposit will guarantee your wedding date or portrait session.
Jessica Bowers is my maiden name and since my business was built on my married name, it made more sense to just keep it that way.

Digital negatives are simply the basic images that comes out of the camera. Out of the thousands of pictures taken during a wedding, the best ones from each pose are selected with basic editing if needed.
Editing can consist of hours upon hours of detailed adjustments such as changing skin tone, removing unwanted blemishes on the skin, slimming that unwanted weight, removing glare and other unwanted objects, and adding special enhancements like shapening of the eyes and whitening the teeth. Editing is one of the reasons you pay great photographers for beautiful photographs.
Jessica, personally evaulates every photograph. After sorting each one, Jessica picks the best images to edit for your collection or album. Because of the amout of images, it is not possible for every photo to be edited. Detailed editing is only performed on portraits. Given that each edited photo takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, it would take hundreds of hours working all day everyday. Photographers simply can not devote that amout of time to every photograph and still maintain other clients.
This type of editing is even more tedious than the high quality editing that is already done. Any special request for editing by the client is additional. I charge $35 per hour to make these special edit request. Some request are just not possible. There is only so much that can be done.
