Headshot Photography

Seriously, if Jessica isn't your photographer then you're missing out on something! She is such a kind-hearted, genuinely talented photographer. Working with Jessica you can tell her passion is photography and it is portrayed throughout all of her beautiful work. I have never worked with a photographer in the past, and was a little nervous... as soon as we approached each other it felt like I was hanging out with a long-lost friend. Her personality made me feel so comfortable which is exactly how you should feel during your own shoot. It took about two weeks for my photos to get delivered- I would have waited two years! Each photo is absolutely STUNNING. It was way beyond anything I could have every expected and definitely money well spent. I am absolutely in awe and cannot stop looking at my photos. My shot was one-on-one for graduation, so I can only imagine how amazing she works with families, groups, or larger events. If anyone is looking for a bit of advice- BOOK Jessica Tonya Photography for your next shoot! Whether it is your wedding, anniversary party, or just a walk in the park, I can PROMISE you, you will never regret it and will be constantly looking back at your photos. Thank you Jessica for your time, hard work, talent, and dedication. I wouldn't have been able to capture this milestone without you.

Me and my fiancé hired Jessica for our wedding and could not be happier with our choice. Our first experience working with Jessica was during our engagement photo shoot. She has an awesome personality and is fun to work with. We loved how the engagement photos came out that we hired her for family Christmas photos, and with our family that is no small task with 4 children. She was great with the kids and they had fun with the photo shoot. That is coming from 2 children that usually hate having their photo taken. After working with Jessica a couple of times now me and my fiancé Kristen are very excited to work with Jessica on our wedding day. Definitely have our photographer for life!

I can’t thank Jessica enough for helping me relax when I was going crazy on my wedding day. It was honestly the most stressed I have ever been. My mood was so off that day but her hilarious bubbly happy cute self helped me get myself together. Beyond taking photos, Jessica helped me with so many tiny things that happened on my wedding day. I didn’t have a coordinator she she was so valuable. Jessica was beyond a pleasure to be around and I am so happy you she was there in my special day! Ps. You can tell she has a passion for photography and she gets suuuuper excited to show you how a photo came out when it looks amazing from her camera. She is so talented. 100/100 recommend!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All my pricing is quite standard. I do offer discounts on certain sessions, but usually if you decide to book a second session. An example would be Maternity and then newborn lifestyle. A second example would be an engagement session, followed by the wedding. Travel fees may apply depending on how far the locations are. Also please expect to pay a 3% service fee & a 7% sales tax fee on all sessions!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Starts with a phone call, then sharing of ideas. Shortly after a consiltation will follow. It’s good to meet up before a shoot, this way we get to know each other and work out all the kinks before the big day. Then you can expect your photos 2 to 3 weeks after your event. (Weddings 2-3months)

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Photoshop & Lightroom certificate from URI
