Steve and I are forever grateful for Jessica Strickland and her assistant Erika for helping us so much on the Big Day. Her talent is unbelievable, capturing color and personalities in such a beautiful, fun, and artistic way. Our wedding was luckily on a sunny day in the fall in Indianapolis, and friends of ours who were not in attendance thought we had gone to a tropical location, due to how well Jess captured the colors! Jess was so helpful from start to finish and made both Steve and me as well as our families and friends comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. Her knowledge of the business not only helped make beautiful photos, but helped also in coordinating the day of events and helping us feel at ease with day of jitters. We couldn’t have done it without her! Thank you Jess so much again for all of your help–we will cherish these photos for forever! Love, Kate and Steve

Oh, what a day our wedding was! Extensive flooding reduced our guest count by 20% and made it a real challenge for those who did finally make it – including Jessica! She got rerouted due to flooded/closed roads five or six times first thing that morning but kept trying (and kept me informed!). She also worked with me to figure out photo alternatives (given the biting cold, gale force winds, and general saturation around the venue – which was meant to be OUTDOORS! lol). She was so relaxed and collected; it was a great help to me!
And once the wedding started, she and her other photographer, Erica, just faded into the background, only turning back up to get specific shots and/or questions answered. After all the hustle and bustle of the morning, it was nice to just enjoy the whole thing without having to worry about who was where when and what we needed to not forget!
And you just can’t beat the quality of her photos. That just goes without saying. Amazing, amazing, amazing. It was the largest part of our budget and worth every penny. At the end of the day, you have your rings, your photos, and each other. Make those things the best things!
