“Jessica and I didn’t get a chance to meet in person prior to our wedding because I was a long-distance bride. However, meeting her for the first time on our wedding day I felt I had known her for years! Everything turned out amazing. She took a difficult situation and made it into the most beautiful day of my life. I look at our photos often and smile. Jessica can do anything! Trust me!” – Mariah Thomas


“I cannot say enough about this team of photographers! We met with a few and Jessica and Sam were so the right choice for us! Our photos are beautiful and they made us and our wedding party feel so comfortable! They also did a great job helping family pictures to run smoothly! I love that we have all the printing rights to our photos as well!” – Nicki K


“J. Graeler Photography has been one of my favorite vendors to work with. Jessica and her co worker Sam are always fun to work with and they’re very creative for those like me that really aren’t sure what to do when it comes to pictures. Our engagement pictures turned out great as I’m sure our wedding photos will too! She’s good at keeping groomsmen on task too 🙂 Great job!!!” – Ashleigh


“Jessica and Sam were very nice and met all of our needs. So far our pictures are beautiful!
They were very flexible even with the sister in law that was never in pictures because she disappeared and wanted us to redo them all at the reception.
We can’t wait to see the rest of our pictures!!” – M.T.


“Jessica was super patient with my newborn and my other 3 kiddos to capture the shots requested. I absolutely love her work and definitely will go back to her!!” – Stephanie Eise


“I loved our maternity pictures!!!! I can’t wait to see what this year brings with our ‘grow with me’ package!!! Thank you so much! And even though my husband felt tortured throughout the pictures, he really likes them as well!!!!” – Mikol Gillespie


“Jess has done both our surprise engagement shoot as well as our wedding just this past weekend, and we couldn’t have survived the day without her! She has an amazing eye for her work and was the anchor in our support system for our wedding day! I highly recommend working with her if you’re looking for professionalism, beyond amazing work, and being made to feel at home regardless of where your photos are taken.” – Michelle Vohsen


“Do you worry about your child’s behavior for days before the scheduled photo session? Not that you think they/she/he will be bad, but maybe you don’t know what to expect? That’s how I felt. Then when we arrived at Jessica’s in home studio, my expectations were met. My three year old decided her shy, reserved side would be better and she didn’t want to pose for anything beyond shoving her sister…. just to throw a hint of obnoxious in there too. Ugh….I felt horrible for Jessica, I felt like we wasted her time.

Meanwhile, little did I know Jessica actually had this all under control. She was incredibly patient with Emily. She would gently place her into a position and even though Emily was only there for a second before running off, Jessica had a snapshot already done. Granted, there aren’t a ton of pics of my three year old smiling, there are more than several adorable pictures which highlight the personality and beauty within her. To boot, she was also amazing with my nine year old nonstop talker and ham; whom occupied the majority of her time while the three year old played with a few toys in a very clean and family friendly environment.

Thank you again Jessica for giving my family gorgeously taken pictures that will last a lifetime, you’re amazing!” – Kayla Keown


“When looking for a photographer, the most important thing to us was to find a photographer who truly captured the emotion of joy, laughter, love, and fun. That is exactly what we got from J. Graeler Photography’s beautiful pictures of our daughter. Jessica Graeler is such a genuine person to work with, someone who absolutely adores her job. She’ll get to know your family and has an amazing gift of being able to capture the moment in her camera and bring it to life in her photos.

I also want to mention how much of a pleasure it is to work with J. Graeler Photography. Very quick to respond, always within the same day and Jessica is a very pleasant, sweet, helpful, and fun person. My husband and I were truly blown away when we saw our daughter’s 6 mo and 1 yr photos, they are absolutely perfect!

If you’re reading this review wondering if you should book J. Graeler Photography, stop and book her now and like her page -you won’t regret it!!! Jessica, you’re the best, and thank you for all the beautiful and wonderful moments you’ve captured in our daughter -truly amazing work!! We cannot wait to see what the future holds in the moments you capture next.” – Teresa Boyd


“Jessica Graeler is professional, flexible, and all around talented. From newborn to 1, she catered our shoots to include all the elements we wanted. She helped document our daughter’s 1st year of life perfectly! I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else! (Especially with a teething baby!) If you are looking for a great photographer, here she is!” – Jamie Peasel


“Jessica was amazing! She has done our maternity and newborn pictures! She had a challenge trying to keep my baby calm and was able to get some great pictures!” – Celilia Dyke


“J. Graeler Photography shot my engagement session and wedding. Not only were they professional but they kept us in line and took photos I couldn’t imagine to have. I consider the owner a life long friend and would refer anyone to her. I’m not a referral queen either. She shared lunch with me over tears during pre-wedding stress, made my husband for real laugh (which can be hard to do), and made my wedding day as beautiful as I wanted. And even better, she gave me the documented memories.” – Ashleigh Perry

She will be snapping while you aren’t even paying attention and has come up with some of my favorite shots in that manner!” -Heidi Neill
