Turns out, fitting in all the gorgeous photography moments you want on your big day can be stressful, but Jessica made it fun & easy. We are so grateful for the beautiful memories she helped us capture.  Tangible moments we will cherish forever.  She made the whole process easy and fun from start to finish!”- Jessica and Tyler


“My husband and I Absolutely LOVE Jessica Ranae Photography! The night after getting engaged we emailed her, and she emailed us back within minutes! She was extremely professional and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We had to reschedule our engagement pictures a few times due to weather, and she was flexible with us and worked with our schedules. On our wedding day she was so wonderful and made everything fun and had so many great creative ideas! She captured every moment so perfectly! Our pictures were amazing, and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! She has since the wedding continued to be a great help and we cannot wait to use her again in the future!”- Molly and Chris


“Jessica was wonderful! She was so calm and patient, prepared and professional! The final products were even better than we could have imagined. She documented our day so beautifully and captured details and emotions of the day we could not see but are so glad to know were there and cherish for a lifetime.”- Kellen and Michael


“Great value, quality, and professionalism. We would not go to anyone else. Jessica made us so comfortable.”- Katie and Bobby

“We love Jessica Ranae Photography! Jessica has been with us throughout all of our most precious life experiences to capture the moment, beginning with our engagement pictures. The original date for our wedding was May 1st, 2010…for those of you familiar with Tennessee, you’ll remember that date as one of the worst floods in our state’s history. By the grace of God, our venue closed months before and we were forced to change our place and date. We married on a beautiful May 22nd day at the Mill in Lebanon. It couldn’t have been more beautiful and perfect! Seeing the collection of memories Jessica had captured was priceless. I couldn’t pick a favorite one if I was asked (maybe a top 10). One of Jessica’s photos was featured in the “Wilson Living” magazine for several months following. Jessica has been a blessing to us! We highly recommend her; incredible photos and personal attention to clients. “- Wes and Juliet


“Jessica was such a pleasure to work with, she was professional, timely, and attentative. Our wedding day consisited of several parts – a tea ceremony, a church ceremony, and the reception (10+ hour day.) Jessica was patient, enthusiastic, and SO much fun to work with. Her work is amazing, we could not have been happier with our photos! Highly recommend her! Thank you so much for all capturing one of the best moments of our lives!!!”- Linh and David


I am so happy with my senior pictures. Jessica is an amazing photographer who captured everything I wanted. The photo shoot was effortless and tons of fun! She has great ideas on location sites and will also go wherever you would like. I viewed an online gallery selection of pictures within a couple days of my shoot and received my photo disc with all pictures a short time thereafter. The quality of Jessica’s work is fantastic!  Trust me, you will be as impressed as I was with her photography!- Mikayla, Senior Photo Client


“I absolutely loved having Jessica capture our special day!! She did such a wonderful job capturing so many special and beautiful moments from our wedding. I’m so happy with all the pictures she took. From the moment we met her (when she did our engagement pictures), she made us feel comfortable and at ease. Jessica was really fun to work with and did such a great job capturing our special day through her beautiful photography.”- Caleb and Naomi


“Jessica did an amazing job 🙂 we love all of our pictures of a day that we will cherish forever. She is very fun to work with and makes sure she gets all the right shots and even those you didn’t think of.”- Rachel and John


Jessica was so wonderful to work with! She was always on time and professional, yet made us feel super relaxed and comfortable. She even got a picture of my grandpa with a real smile instead of his usual awkward picture smile, which is pretty much impossible. Our pictures turned out absolutely amazing! We have received soooo many compliments on them.- Stephanie and David


We absolutely love our engagement and wedding pictures and Jessica was great to work with! Very well-organized, quick to respond and she has great ideas. We have gotten a lot of compliments on our pictures and people asking about our photographer.- Allie and Matt


Our experience with Jessica from start to finish was excellent. I had heard great things about her, but was hesitant to book a photographer for my Baltimore wedding who lived in Minnesota. I emailed her anyway, and she was not only willing to travel – she was enthusiastic and confident about the job. 
Jessica was very easy to communicate with and added no extra stress to planning. 
The two important things in finding a wedding photographer for our wedding were that he or she blend in with our small group of guests and be very patient with me, as I hate having my photo taken and was anxious about all the wedding day attention. Jessica excelled in both of these areas all weekend. She has a gift of working hard to get great shots while simultaneously being a ton of fun and bringing such a positive personality to an event. I truly believe I got more than a photographer – she was calming, helped us stay on time, made me feel confident, and helped me to enjoy the day in spite of the little stresses. 
In the end, we received gorgeous photos in great packaging. Every time I look through them, I am reminded of another wonderful moment from our wedding day.- Virginia and Cory

I can’t really say enough about Jessica! She was so professional, so easy to work with, so helpful and her photos are incredible. I loved our engagement photos (even though I don’t think i’m a very photogenic person) and her sneak peeks from our wedding photos just made me melt! Can’t wait to see more. We had a difficult timeline to work with, and she didn’t bat an eye, but just made it work! Thank you thank you for a wonderful wedding day!!!!- Beth and Kyle

Jessica was amazing! She is extremely professional and takes amazing photos. We could not have been happier with how our wedding day went and believe that Jessica contributed greatly to that! She made our group photos smooth and we felt comfortable and organized. She was always on time and traveled 60 minutes away from the cities for our engagement photos. Every meeting with her left us feeling great and she was wonderful to work with! -Grace and Josh

Jessica was AMAZING!!! She was organized and helpful and she directed my husband and I well (we were pretty laid back about it all and needed a knowledgeable push towards certain photos ). Our confidence in her was well deserved as the photos came out amazing and were everything we wanted and so much more!!! I wholeheartedly give 5 stars and more!! Thank you so much for being part of our wonderful day and capturing what was a perfect wedding. Much love!! -Sarah and Jon
