What to expect, along with pricing and process details.

EVERY couple HAS A STORY.

From inside jokes to stolen kisses, there is nothing like being with someone who knows you better than anyone, and who has chosen to live this crazy life with you. These are the moments we want to remember forever.

 

Part of why I love photography is because I love documenting your best days with your favorite people. Whether you're starting a new chapter, or just want to remember this journey you're on, I want to help document this time in your life. Moments are fleeting. So, grab your person and let's go to your favorite place (or places!) and make some memories together!

I would love to tell your love story.

"Jessi makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed and is such a joy to have around! She makes the experience so much fun and produces the most stunning photos!" - Allison W.

My style

Fun. Stress-Free. Natural. Emotional.

I am here to document some of your favorite moments with your favorite person. I will, of course, help guide you in natural, beautiful poses, but I also want to help you have fun doing it. You will be more comfortable in front of my lens, and your images will have the natural, more authentic feel of true keepsakes.

I am also a natural light photographer who shoots on location. I will send you location guides as well as style guides upon booking so that we can find something that fits your personality and helps us make the most of our time together.

My experience

With over 10 years of experience, I am familiar with many different types of situations and I am happy to send you full galleries of past sessions so you can see a full spectrum of my work.

 

I always aim to be both kind and professional when addressing any of my Client's needs, and I’m committed to providing timely responses to any of your questions before and after our session. I truly love my job and want your experience working with me to be as fulfilling to you as it is to me.

Not even sure how to put into words my appreciation for Jessi Casara Photography! My husband, family, and I could not more highly recommend Jessi and her amazing work!  We are so in love with all of the photography work she’s done for us, from our engagement session to our recent wedding, but with Jessi, you’re getting so, so much more than stunning shots of important moments — you’re getting a truly kind, supportive, hardworking, talented, and encouraging artist .  - Jordan A.

the process

How to book and what comes next.

01: Contact

Click here to email me so we can go over the details of your session and pick a date and time. I will also help offer suggestions on location based on what you're looking for.

02: Book

Once we have a date and location, I'll email you a photo agreement to e-sign and a link to pay your retainer. Then you get to look forward to the big day, while I make sure my equipment is all clean and lookin sweet for your precious faces. 

03: Session

The big day arrives and we meet at the decided upon location, probably right before sunset cause that's my favorite time to shoot, and we laugh and have a great time and you'll be all like "Omgosh I'm so glad we hired her, what a great time this has been."

04: Delivery

I'll upload a sneak peek within a few days, then it'll take 2-4 weeks to edit all of your glorious images. I will probably cry at how cute you are. Then I email you a link to your gorgeous online gallery where you can view, share, order prints, and download the high res files. 

I'M READY...

LET'S DO THIS!

faq

Why should we hire you?

I take care of all of my clients like they are family. I have over 10 years of experience and absolutely love what I do. I have been told that I bring a sense of joy and comfort to my sessions, which helps me photograph and reveal the "true spirit" of the people and relationships I photograph. 

Can I bring a dog or pet to our session?

Yes. Absolutely. One thousand times yes.

Are you lgbtq+ friendly?

Yes! I'm here to document your time with your loved ones, whatever that looks like.

Do you edit all our photos?

Every image that you receive has been individually edited by me. I never send my images off to be bulk edited by some other company. I want to make sure every shot is consistent with the quality of work I expect from myself.

 

Where do you live & how far will you travel? 

I live on the Gulf Coast in Southern Alabama but also offer services in the Chattanooga area (moving there soon!) I’m always up for a new adventure so if you have a destination in mind just let me know and we’ll see what we can do!

"She is by far the best photographer I have ever used!! She is absolutely amazing and very talented. You will not be disappointed!! You will love your pics!!!" - Stephanie M.
