I’m Jessica, and for over 13 years, I’ve been photographing weddings all over the US. For the past 6 years, I’ve been back in my hometown of Austin, Texas photographing locally in the Texas Hill Country at venues like Camp Lucy, The Driskill Hotel, and Chateau Cocomar and abroad in truly magical destinations worldwide.
In my career as a destination photographer, I‘ve been honored to document over 400 weddings and adorable love stories, (and a whole slew of my sweet couples have even been featured in wedding magazines and blogs!) It’s always an adventure. And I love it. My passport and camera stay packed in my carry-on because I’ve got a serious case of wanderlust and I’m always down for hopping on another plane for yet another dream destination wedding. Will the next one be yours?
"Jessica is the consummate professional and her photos are amazing, whether posed or candid. Moments matter - Jessica captures every beautiful moment. Many of her photos literally take my breath away. But I have to say, we found her style, personality and her presence just as important as her photographic talents. Her confidence boosted our confidence. She made us laugh, she put us at ease, and then she taught us all how to properly twirl a wedding gown! Having her there just made the whole day fun. We now see how that comes through in her stunning photos. We are big Jessica Frey fans!
A native Austinite with an adventurer’s heart, I’ve been traveling internationally since I was 13 years old (and I even once backpacked around the world to 11 countries in a span of only 4 months!) So it makes sense that when I learned to combine my two great loves (photography and travel), I found my true calling in photographing weddings across the globe.
I have had the honor of photographing couples in Italy, Ireland, Germany, England, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bahamas, Grand Cayman Islands, Hawaii, Thailand, Croatia, Greece and New Zealand. I always feel comfortable exploring and as an Enneagram Type 7, I’m up for an adventure and new friends anytime.
“We flew Jessica to Cancun to capture our destination beach wedding and it was the best investment! She immediately put our family and friends at ease with her joyful personality and she captured our weekend celebration in a way that was effortless, fun and we’ll have the perfect photos to treasure forever. It was truly worth every penny to have someone who felt like a friend take care of us and alleviate all the stress of trusting a local vendor who wouldn’t have given us as much attention and served us to the level we got from Jessica!”
This high-quality style provides a consistency you can count on and that will endure for generations.
I believe in documenting authentic happiness by creating a joyful experience for couples, their family, and their friends, by remaining upbeat and having fun throughout the entire experience. With my focus on classic and timeless images, you can be guaranteed images that are authentic in nature, elegant by design, minimally edited, and enjoyed by each generation.
