One of the best decisions I made when I was planning my wedding was hiring Jess as our wedding photographer! She is hands down the BEST photographer and the kindest and most personable human! From the beginning, Jess valued and made an effort to know my husband, myself, and our families. As a type A bride, I had zero worries about wedding day photography timeline or forgetting pictures I wanted from the wedding day. Truly the wedding day revolves around pictures and with the detailed timeline and “must get shot list” that Jess provides, it is evident this is NOT her first rodeo! Jess does an amazing job of capturing the couple naturally and organically and not forcing pictures. Taking pictures is not my husband’s favorite thing to do, nonetheless for multiple hours, but Jess made him feel comfortable and hyped both of us up during both our engagement shoot and wedding day! You know you have an incredible photographer when your SNEAK PEAK includes 300 photos!! 😍Words do not do Jessica’s talent enough justice — just look at her work and you will be blown away! I had multiple friends tell us that our photos looked like they were from a magazine! Take this as your sign now to book Jessica Strickland Photography because you will NOT be disappointed! ♥️
Hiring Jessica was the single best decision I made for this whole wedding process. From Day 1 she was organized, cheerful, genuine, and professional. Oh, and she takes AMAZING PICTURES, too. Jessica is a superwoman, and I could not be more grateful for her!
Jessica is the photographer you want on your special days capturing your very special moments. I LOVE how she uses a bright approach to her photos that really brings out all the vibrant colors and details you have carefully chosen on your wedding day (her blog posts she puts together after each event really show all that color coming to life!). My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of a camera, but Jessica made the whole experience seamless, enjoyable, and fun for every single person involved where by the end we all said “well that was easy!” We had our son and his two young cousins in the wedding and she was able to get the perfect shots, which is hard to do for 2, 3 and 5 year olds! She truly cares about her clients, their story and capturing every moment you want on your wedding day. She has a great relationship with vendors and worked so well with our wedding planner, venue management and more importantly our videographer. They never missed a beat. BOOK JESSICA STRICKLAND if you can!!
Not only is Jessica so kind, but she is the best photographer in the business. She came recommended to us by our wedding planner (All in the Details), and there is no doubt why!
When my mom, fiancé, and I met with her for the first time, we were blown away! We spent three hours meeting about the wedding. She came prepared, as prior to meeting she had already talked to our wedding planner. She ensured that she understood our vision and helped us draft a timeline from start to finish, and a photo list.
She was always very responsive and during the weeks leading up to the wedding we had touchpoints to ensure we were all on the same page and prepared. Her experience was invaluable, as she knew to ask me things I hadn’t even thought of!
I feel like sometimes talking pictures and having a photographer can cause some pressure and in turn make you feel awkward, which can show through in pictures. This is NOT the case with Jessica at all. Never once was she “in your face” or forcing a shot. She makes you feel so comfortable and captures authentic and real emotions! When she arrived, it was like another one of my friends showed up. We were talking and laughing and she was making sure she got pictures of the whole day.
The pictures she captured were unbelievable. They were of the best quality and so beautiful. They perfectly showed my husband’s and my relationships with those around us and captured love that words can’t describe. She had the sneak peek pictures to us so fast, which was exciting to relive all those moments.
I would recommend Jessica to everyone! You only have one wedding day, and she is the best and most talented person to perfectly capture everything that is wonderful about it!
If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, just stop now and book Jessica Strickland! I don’t have enough good things to say about her. Jess brought so much positive energy and confidence to our big day. She not only captured everything so perfectly and seamlessly, but made the day so much more fun and memorable. She is extremely organized, had a very detailed timeline and will do everything she can to make you feel special. Not to mention she was there to advise us on how to cut out cookie cake and fix my dress when the bustle broke. She has a true gift to make photos both casual and amazing. I truly don’t know how she does it. My guests don’t talk to me about how beautiful the flowers were or how elegant the venue was, but how amazing and energized our photographer was. You will be completely blown away by Jess!
Working with Jessica has been an absolute DREAM! She is without a doubt the best in the business and made our wedding day extremely fun, smooth and truly magical! Not only is she sweet, talented, kind, energetic, organized and so much more, but her quality is AMAZING! She made us and our friends and family feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera and has a gift for capturing the essence, joy and love uniquely for every couple and every special day. On top of that, she got great smiles and giggles out of the 6 kiddos that were flower girls and ring bears and managed to make our excited puppy look like a model! Our wedding day flew by, but we are SO THANKFUL to have had Jessica there to capture it all. We cannot recommend her enough!
XOXO, Sarah and Andrew Burke
I just wanted to express my thanks to Jessica. You are amazing and made the whole process of pics just a fun and exciting time. I can’t wait to see the pictures of Brandon and Laura!! I know they will be great because the engagement pics were phenomenal! You are just so much fun to work with and you are so cute and fun!!! I am so happy to have had the pleasure of meeting you and can not express enough how absolutely perfect you made the day!!
Thanks so much and best of luck to you always!!😊
I cannot stay enough great things about Jess! She is an amazing force to be reckoned with and a master of all trades wrapped up in one tiny little package! Not only was she a wonderful photographer but she truly took the role of wedding planner on plenty of occasions. Jess made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot, helped us navigate planning a wedding during the pandemic, spoke with me on the phone for countless hours planning our wedding day timeline and so many other extras that you wouldn’t even think of, was always a call or text away for support and endless questions, helped my sister fix her dress when it ripped and even helped fix my bustle when it ripped the day of the wedding, helped coordinate with all vendors, and truly helped make our day so so special. Jess is such a positive person and brightens up every room she walks in. She was such a calming force throughout the entire wedding planning process and truly has a solution to all your problems! Not only does Jess feel like a part of the bridal party itself but she is such a professional at the same time and the way she conducts herself and her business truly shows itself in the way we all interact with her, work with her, and in her amazing photography. I truly cannot say enough great things about Jess. She is an amazing businesswoman and person and I cannot imagine navigating our wedding day without all of her help. She truly puts you first and is your right hand woman every step of the way. With Jess, you know that you always have that support, communication, and friend in your corner for anything you may need. I am so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to have worked with Jess and I’m sure every bride who has worked with her, would say the exact same! Jess truly helped make our wedding day that much more special and helped run things so smoothly across the board. Her great relationship with vendors in the wedding business is also very evident and she is so respected by everyone. She is a jack of all trades, dependable, supportive, and will without a doubt help you every step of the way. I respect Jess so much and would recommend her to any bride, any day of the week!
Jessica brought an energy and confidence to our daughters wedding. She seemed to be everybody’s friend and yet got everyone where they needed to be for each photo. She had a detailed timeline and list of photos we requested and stayed true to both. She has a true gift to make photos both casual and purposeful…….NOT easy to pull off! The photos captured the spirit of the event and the emotions that run high on that day. As we review the photos we can feel each person’s personality, exactly what you want in a photo. Our wedding was better because we had Jessica. -Jennifer, Mother of the Bride,
When it comes to getting your wedding photographer you have to go with Jessica! She is the most talented and down to earth person you will ever meet! She is very organized and structured to ensure that nothing is missed during your big day! I know when I was planning, it was comforting knowing Jessica had the photography under control and it was one less stress for me!
When I say I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer, I truly mean it!! Jessica goes ABOVE AND BEYOND constantly. From the very first time I met her, she completely took all of my anxiety about my photos away. Not only did she get amazing shots of our wedding day, but she pretty much ran the day and made sure everything went smoothly. My husband and I are IN LOVE with our pictures, and we have them all over our home. There isn’t a better wedding photographer and I can 100% guarantee Jessica will blow you away with her amazing talent!!
Jessica, you are a magnificent, brilliant and most fantastic photographer, one of a kind.
This comes from the father and mother of the bride. As a father (parents) we wanted the best for our daughter’s wedding. I am a keen photographer and have photographed a few family weddings. So I had some concerns, when we first met with Jessica to discuss the assignment along with our daughter, Anisha, and the groom, Thomas. How misguided and wrong was I. She became part of our family without us realizing it. Her infectious laughter and pleasant personality put us at ease.
But the proof of the pudding was the wedding day photography. As parents we were so engrossed in the various tasks of a Hindu wedding that we we missed the forest for the trees. But now when I look at the photographs, i feel so elated at looking at all the special moments that Jessica captured. It looks like we were at a different wedding altogether! on top of that we received so many wonderful comments from the guests about Jessica. Although she was busy taking many photographs, she was neither intrusive nor impolite. I still get a big smile on my face when I go over the photos and I have seen them many a times! Thank you for capturing these wonderful pictorial memories for us.
A big hug and thank you. The Patel family has adopted you.

Jessica Strickland is the most incredible photographer. For our wedding, we vetted a number of different Indy/regional photogs to find the person we felt most comfortable with. Jessica was far and away the most relatable, funny, and down to earth person we spoke with. In addition to being an amazing human herself, her camera and editing skills are unmatched. Her ability to bring out the most vibrant colors and capture the most incredible candid – and posed! – imagery will ensure your wedding memories last a lifetime… and she’ll capture the moments the way you want to remember them. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Contract her. Buy her imagery. Spring for the engagement shoots and the albums. You’ll want them all. You’ll also want to be her BFF, too. Mollie & Josh, 2017 wedding.
Jessica is simply the BEST!!! Her style and artistic capabilities are what first drew me in, and then once you meet her you will know why clients just rave about her! She is just the sweetest and so real, and just so easy to work with! We actually scheduled our date around her schedule because she books up so fast, but I’m so glad because I wouldn’t have wanted any other photographer. She truly captured everything and we couldn’t have asked for better. Then after the wedding, the parent albums and our album turned out phenomenal! Highly, HIGHLY, recommend Jessica Strickland! Sincerely, Brianna & Eric Jones
Jessica was the most wonderful addition my husband and I could have added to our wedding day. Not only does she take absolutely beautiful photos, she does everything possible to make sure you have the most perfect day. From the first meeting I had with Jessica I knew right away her positive and radiant attitude was exactly the type of person I wanted to be with us during our wedding journey From working so hard to ensure we had a great day for our engagement photos to sticking with us all the way until the last moment of our wedding day Jessica was there capturing perfectly executed photos as well as candid shots that we will cherish forever. If you want to have the best wedding photos possible AND spend your day with someone who will make you smile and laugh and feel like a rockstar then book Jessica and book her now! Thank you Jessica for everything!!! We want another big event just to hangout with you again!
Morgan and Max Youngs 🙂
I do not even know where to begin to explain how absolutely wonderful Jessica Strickland is at what she does. She was the very first wedding vendor I booked and I was so relieved when I found out she was available for my December 29th wedding! Not only is she the BEST wedding photographer, but she made sure that the entire day ran smoothly. She was on top of it with the timeline and made sure that everyone was where they needed to be at all times. She even made a homemade bustle for my dress after my bustle broke! She brought such a sense of peace and calming energy to my wedding day, and I am so incredibly thankful for that. I can honestly say that my wedding day would not have been so perfect if she was not involved. She is such a joy to be around and I consider myself so lucky to have had the chance to work with her! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! She truly has a gift when it comes to capturing special moments that you never want to forget. My family and I have had such a wonderful time looking at our wedding album and reminiscing on what a perfect day it was…thanks to Jessica of course! Thank you!!!

Emily & Alex, November 2018
When we booked Jessica for our wedding I was so thrilled. She was the one vendor I knew I wanted going into wedding planning mode so needless to say I couldn’t be more excited. She first did our engagement pictures, which turned out amazing. This was the first time we met with her in person and she made you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and we even had fun in cold weather! She was so easy to work with and so accommodating. For our wedding she was an all-star. She helped make the day fun and captured wonderful images of not only the bride and groom but of our family and wedding guests. We had families and friends coming up to us and giving compliments on how great she was at the wedding! Needless to say, the wedding pictures came back amazing as well! Jessica is so kind and professional. She truly is one of the best photographers and we are forever thankful to have had her for our special day.
I don’t know where to start when it comes to describing how much we loved Jessica!!! Simply put, SHE IS AMAZING!! She is not only one of the most talented people we know, but she truly has such a great heart and spirit which became obvious the moment we started working with her. She impressed us, even before we booked her as our photographer. From the beginning, she was so professional, always responding to every single silly question we had and she even helped to communicate with some of our other vendors that she’s friends with. Furthermore, her pictures are MEMORIZING, and it’s so incredible how well she can be there at every single important moment and yet be invisible at the same time! From the first day of our crazy Indian wedding weekend, Jessica and her team were so great. She was wonderful with the kids, with us, and with the rest of our family and friends! It’s no wonder why she’s described over and over again as the best photographer in the Indy area!! Weddings are one the most important days in an individual’s life and we’re so so lucky that we had Jessica there to capture ours. If you’re looking for a photographer for an important event in your life, there’s one clear choice. We cannot thank you enough. ANU + PARAS, March 2017 Wedding
If you’re looking for the BEST photographer in Indianapolis, you can stop looking because you’ve found her! Words literally cannot describe how amazing Jessica Strickland is, but i’m going to try! Before I even met Jess, all of my other vendors told me what a great photographer she was. I remember one of them even said, “Oh wow, she does all of the top brides in Indy”…which resulted in my now husband and father-in-law nicknaming me “top bride” up until the wedding (hah! Thanks Jess ;). Now after seeing our wedding photos, oh man were they right..this lady is crazy talented! It was pouring rain on our wedding day and I was worried the pictures would look dark and dreary. I have no idea what Jess did, but the pictures turned out so bright and colorful! I’m convinced she’s a wizard. I’ve had so many friends and family gush over how awesome the photos turned out. To top it all off, Jess is also the nicest person I’ve ever met and she made sure everything was perfect on our big day. Everyone in our bridal party commented on how awesome she was to work with. I would recommend Jess a thousand times over and can’t imagine working with anyone else! You should absolutely choose her to be your photographer, you will be SO happy you did!
I really cannot even begin to express how amazing working with Jess was! Her pictures have no comparison, after seeing her blog her work clearly stands out. After meeting with Jess I instantly felt so comfortable and trusted not only her experience but her genuine joy for what she does and the clients she works with. We did our engagement shoot with her which was an absolute blast. She was not only willing but excited to do a winter shoot and was very flexible the day of to avoid some bad weather later in the day. I LOVE those pictures and cannot wait to see our wedding photos! Before the wedding Jess was available via her cell phone for all my last minute questions and concerns, she really acted as our coordinator and I must have asked her 100 planning questions the months before and even a few the week of the wedding. Jess is such a joy to be around and extremely professional. She even cleared out her car last minute when our limo didn’t show up after the ceremony to help carpool the bridal party for our off site pictures. Jess was a blast to have around the ENTIRE wedding day, morning to the very end of the reception, and I would highly recommend working with her! My husband, family and my bridal party all could not say enough good things about Jess and her assistant Erica who was just as bubbly and professional. I feel like I could ramble on but I wanted to be sure to take the time to try and express my rave reviews because Jess was such a joy throughout all the planning and for the beautiful day of! Gail, April 2015 Bride[ View Images ]
Can we give her a million star rating??? We were completely blown away by Jessica and her incredible talent. She is truly one of the sweetest people we have ever met, and being with her all day for our wedding was so much fun. Jessica is incredibly organized and yet at ease. We were so comfortable with her because of her genuine spirit and friendship. We could never have imagined such a caring, kind, professional, and talented photographer to capture our day. We would hire her again in a heartbeat, and we are so thrilled to have her as a friend!! We can’t say enough about her and recommend her fully with great enthusiasm!
Janice, May 2016 Bride
Oh Jessica, where do I begin?! You are one of the sweetest people I have ever met! I had been amazed by Jessica’s work on her wedding blog and when we started wedding planning I said the one thing I HAVE to have is Jessica Strickland as my photographer. Her pictures are absolutely incredible!! When I had my first meeting with Jessica I was in awe of how genuine and kind she was. She immediately put me at ease and I knew that not only would I get the most amazing wedding pictures but that I would have someone there on my wedding day who would make the day fun and exciting. I cannot say enough how amazing Jessica was on our wedding day. She made hours of taking pictures seem like minutes with her upbeat and happy personality. Every single person in the wedding party commented on how great she was. Anything I needed, she was there. At a moment during shooting I started to not feel well and without me even saying a word Jessica knew that I needed a break and sped things along for me. I absolutely would book Jessica a million times over again and will use her whenever I need a photographer again!! Trust me when I say you need her as your wedding photographer!!!!!!
Megan, May 2016 Bride
Oh. My. GOODNESS Jessica Strickland…you are the BEST!!! We did a lot of research for wedding photographers, and no one compared to Jess’s style. We booked her as soon as possible and we’re so glad we did. When our wedding day came, she was absolutely phenomenal! She captured every single moment and emotion from that day, and did so in such a beautiful, elegant way. We have so much FUN looking through our wedding sneak peek photos and reliving the day through them, and we’re so excited to see the rest! We are absolutely blown away by them – they are beyond spectacular!!! She captured emotions and memories that will last forever, which is something so precious and treasured. We HIGHLY recommend Jessica – not only because of her stunning photographs and incredible artistry, but for her personality too. She is professional yet hilarious, calm yet excited, organized yet spontaneous, and overall one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet! She helped with the gown & veil, had tissues at the ready, and even kept lip gloss in her pocket. J From the moment she arrived, she stuck to the time schedule in a way that kept the day flowing flawlessly. We met Erika for the first time on our wedding day and she is equally as sweet, genuine, fun, and helpful – so glad she was there to help the guys iron and fold their pocket squares! J We cannot express how wonderful our entire experience was working with Jessica. With her there on our wedding day, not only did we get out of this world photographs, but we were able to focus on each other and enjoy every second & moment, as she effortlessly took care of the details. If you’re lucky enough to lock her in (she books up FAST!), it will be one of the best decisions you make in your entire wedding planning! We cannot thank you enough, Jess & Erika – WE LOVE YOU!![ View Images ]
Jessica is absolute best! From the moment we had our first meeting, we knew she was the photographer for us! She loves her job, loves her clients, and you can tell she puts her heart and soul into everything she does. She made us feel so comfortable in the engagement session and throughout the entire process! Our wedding day was spent dodging rain showers for pictures, but as a bride I had NO WORRIES! I trusted Jessica completely and she took AMAZING pictures, as always! I cannot say enough about Jessica and Erika (who got great pictures out of a rowdy group of groomsmen)! Thank you so much for being a part of our day and capturing images we will treasure for a life time!![ View Images ]
Jessica & Erika could not have been more fantastic. Being from out of town, we set up a meeting to first introduce ourselves and meet Jessica (we were already a tad jaded after obsessing over the blog photos). From the minute we started talking, we were totally done! Her knowledge and professionalism, while also keeping a down to earth/positive attitude was fantastic. We were thrilled to be able to have her capture our memories. Great prep work, and meetings via phone got us to the wedding day. Fast forward to morning of, and we happen to experience a rather unique situation – power outage the morning prepping for the wedding on the top floor of the JW Marriot downtown. Jessica could not have stepped it up any better! Calling to inform me about the city grid being out, getting herself and equipment up to us, contacting our church and venue to ensure they were up and running with power- went well beyond what should be expected. She seriously took stress away from the situation by not only doing that, but then keeping all smiles for our crew as we zipped around to generators, service elevators, basements, etc while getting ready. I am so grateful, as I did not even realize what all was going on during the chaos, and after seeing what images and details she was able to capture in the midst of this – you would have no idea we were running all over the place. Super woman! She kept things together, my nieces smiling all day, which was great to watch:), while also staying calm, fun, & enjoyable! We had a blast! Of course, our pictures thus far have been simply a dream. We could not be happier with what we have to reflect back on our wedding day & we could not recommend a better experience all the way around. They are truly gifted and found their calling!
Thank you, Jessica & Erika- you made our wedding day an amazing experience, and we look forward to sharing our photos to family and friends for years to come. Now just need another excuse to have your capture more life moments! 🙂[ View Images ]
I just had to take a second to tell you how much we enjoyed meeting you, first of all, and most of all, what a consummate professional we found you to be. No exaggeration, and I know I told you a few times over the course of the rehearsal and wedding, how much I appreciated your style throughout. I cannot think of way, from my vantage point, how you or Erika, could have been more accommodating or on task. So, from a very grateful MOG and FOG, THANK YOU! Cannot wait to see the photos!
I cannot put into words how magical you
made our daughter’s wedding . You have
such a special gift in making everyone around
you feel like they are the only one and the most
important person that exist. Thank you for
that. Thank you for doing what you do best! I
tell everyone about you!
YOU WERE A DREAM!!! I don’t know how to thank you properly for all you did for our wedding, assisting us, & being a rockstar on making calls and helping out with the power outage!
I am so grateful we had you and Erika with us capturing our day while also making us feel comfortable & making my nieces smile & be on point.
Cannot wait to see what you both captured!
Jess, I cannot begin to thank you and Erika enough for everything you both did for our wedding. Working with you from day one has been an absolute blessing and so much fun! I felt 100% secure about the planning and all the details once you stepped on the scene to act not only as our talented photographer but our coordinator and friend through everything! Our snowy engagement shoot was a blast and I LOVE those photos! I can only imagine how amazing our wedding pictures will be. Having you with us ALL day was truly so much fun and your genuine care for what you do and who you work with made me feel absolutely at ease and cared for throughout the entire day. Thank you for answering all my phone calls throughout the planning process, clearing out your car at the last minute to help carpool when the limo didn’t show up, capturing some amazing moments and winning over our families, the bridal party and all our guests with your professionalism and enthusiasm! We are amazed by your work ethic and your joy for others. Truly thank you so much and EVERYONE would love working with Jess![ View Images ]
Jess, working with you has been a dream since the beginning. We truly value your hard work and dedication. You have been amazing to work with from day one and you have enabled us to relive our wedding day for years and years to come! Thank you for everything!! We couldn’t be happier with our photos, our album and most of all our friendship with you!![ View Images ]
