Vendor Love: Jessica Jaccarino Photography
February 27th, 2015 by BESWOON
Jessica works with brides all across New England, and we are thrilled to have her in the Cocktail Lounge at this year’s BESWOON! Jessica is a photographer and a dog lover whose passion for photography grew out of a love of taking pictures of her dogs, Atticus and Ava. She started her pet photography business, sit.stay.snaps (www.sitstaysnaps.com) 6 years ago. Since then, her passion for photography has led her into numerous types of endeavors including weddings. Since moving back to her roots here in Maine she has continued to pursue sit.stay.snaps which has led to lots of new clients as well as some commercial opportunities with Planet Dog and Life is Good.
In NYC she was the Director of Marketing for an IT firm and did the photography part time. Since moving back to Maine she has taken on the photography work full time. She began second shooting with a few close wedding photographer friends, and learned that she really enjoyed capturing weddings; the emotion, the detail and the moments between the families and the couple. Last year she decided to start another leg of her business aside from the pet photography, Jessica Jaccarino Photography (jessicajaccarinophotography.com), and considers this side of the business the Lifestyle photography with a photo-journalistic approach.
Her style is a combination of traditional, journalistic and fine art.
“I will always shoot the formal family and bridal party portraits, the ceremony, vows, toasts, parent dance, cake cutting, etc. But I truly love the journalistic style of candids, capturing spontaneous moments throughout the day. The fine art plays into the detail of the wedding. I want my photography to emphasize the beauty of the detail’s, shoes, rings, dress, flower arrangements, candles, lighting etc. So in the end the couple can look back and remember and know exactly how it all unfolded while remembering all the hard work and detail that was put into the special day.”
Jessica is currently running a promotion: if a bride books a 2015-2916 wedding and mentions BESWOON in the message box, she will give them 20% off their wedding album!
