Nikki & Zadok-

“OMG Jessica! I'm crying (in the best way!) I was up until 3am going through these and am just blown away. You captured just how FUN and "us" the whole day was. I am grateful beyond measure for getting me and knowing what was needed to bring out the best in all of us. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”


Katherine & John-

“Jessica is absolutely amazing. She had my fiancé and I figured out and took the shots that’s were perfect for us. Our engagement shoot was great, boudoir photos were gorgeous and sexy.. he was very surprised and happy! Our wedding photos were everything we wanted I seriously don’t know how We’ll choose our favorites. I couldn’t of asked for a better experience and quality of work. I can’t wait to contact her for future events/family photos. Was really a worry free experience and when it comes to weddings that’s gold!”


Sarah & Raul
We could not have asked for more in every way! Jessica and her team were incredible throughout the planning process, the day of our wedding and support after. We are so in love with all of our photos and are beyond happy that she truly understood our vision. The day of, she was the best at wrangling, directing, supporting us as the bride and groom, the wedding party and even vendors. Overall, we are so thrilled with the photos but ultimately, the lasting impressing was her cool attitude and calm personable demeanor. We literally still gush about how she was our favorite person we worked with on our wedding!

Anastasia & Cody

Delivers on beautiful photos & a great experience. Jessica is bubbly, fun, energetic and professional. She is exactly what we were hoping to find in our photographer! She captured moments of a day that I have difficulty remembering each detail because it flew by. I am extremely camera-shy and she helped me loosen up& get out of my own head. ( which is no easy feat ) I highly recommend her for engagements, and weddings. Hopefully one day, we can say the same about maternity & baby photos too!

One Sweet Day Events

We love working with her and know our clients are going to love their photos!

Caitlin & Tim

Jessica is the best! She photographed my wedding and engagement photos and was so much fun to work with- her sense of humor and welcoming spirit immediately make you feel comfortable. Her photos are truly remarkable and she captured more than we could have hoped for on our special day! I absolutely loved the wedding album she put together for us- Wow, wow, wow! Jessica is definitely putting her talents to use as a photographer!

Victoria & Russell

Jessica is an artist and true talent!  She is incredibly well versed in a variety of different types of photography and will work with you to pinpoint just what you are looking for. She is so easy to work with and helps to make you feel at ease, and when you dislike having your picture taken it's an invaluable skill.  She always goes the extra mile and delivers more than one could expect. Jessica can see outside the box and will give you a truly amazing experience you will never forget.

Lydia & Adrian

Jess is the best. I absolutely loved having her as our wedding photographer and could not be more thrilled with how our photos turned out.

Jennifer & Andy

Jessica took such lovely pictures for our wedding. She was also very sweet and attentive to our crazy wedding schedule. I do recommend her as a wedding photographer. Truly amazing!!

Carl & Stephanie

Jessica does an amazing job - she is very professional and knows what she is doing. The photos came out beautiful and captured a perfect day we will never forget.

Myriah & John

An absolute pleasure, Jessica made our wedding day easy. We had all the mandatory pictures we absolutely wanted to capture and Jessica made it easy to capture them all and made sure we got everything we wanted. Jessica’s personality is loose and funny and an absolute pleasure to work with. Not to mention the pictures she takes are amazing.

Luis & Amelia

Have a conversation with Jessica. She is very professional and very creative, her input improved our photos and exceeded expectations. Set up a tentative plan and be ready for some fun adventures. She has a wonderful eye and personality.

Bloom Floral & Foliage

Jessica has both vision and an artistic creativity that set her above the rest. I have done several types of shoots with her and each time the outcome is greater than I expected. I am in constant awe of what a true gem I’ve found!

Amanda Silvia, Owner Amanda Lauren Co.

Jessica not only captures the intimate moments between the bride and groom and their loved ones on their special day, but also every detail that make up a wedding day, such as table scape, décor, florals, etc.. She finds beauty in the details living and non living. Creating memories through film and capturing the wedding day as a whole. I know when my clients hire Jessica, they will receive a product that tells the complete story of their day from beginning to end. It’s all in the details with Jessica, not only does she take care of the client, she also takes care of the vendors involved in creating the client’s big day by producing images of the design details and vendor contributions that bring a wedding to life. From the dessert and food, to the florals and décor; she captures it all.   


Derrick & Beckie
Jessica truly knows how to capture the most special moments in life!  She works hard to create a perfect, comfortable atmosphere to get beautiful and timeless photos you will cherish forever.  I started with a Bodoir shoot and have been an addicted client ever since! She has also done our Wedding, Maternity, and Newborn photos.  We are lucky to have found such a talented Photographer!

Rebecca Michel, Owner of Beauty by Beckie

Working with Jessica as a Hair & Makeup Stylist is always a pleasure!  She is a creative, talented, & dedicated Photographer that truly loves her craft!  I always know that there is something exciting when walking into a shoot with Jessica.  Her shoots are truly inspiring and tailored to fit each client.  She is always  professional and courteous and conveys her visions beautifully.  I love working with her!

Katie & Patrick
Jessica is amazing! We absolutely loved her. She shot our wedding in May. When choosing a photographer, it was really important that we found someone with a good personality since they would be with us pretty much the entire day. We loved Jessica once we met her. She had amazing ideas, was super professional, and was so on top of it the day of the wedding. I would highly recommend her! Your pictures will be beautiful!

Amelia & Luis

Jessica made the whole process completely easy and stress-free. She photographed both our engagement photos and wedding, and we are 100% happy with the quality of our photos. She provided guidance and direction for locations and posing, but also asked for our requests and input. For both photo shoots we had a digital album of all our photos in less than one week. Thank you Jessica!

Sarah & Cody

I am OBSESSED with Jessica. I feel like I want to be her friend forever!!! She vibe with me and my husband so well and did everything we asked. She took control and got everyone together to get all the formal photos! She also did my boudoir shoot and made me feel SO comfortable and beautiful. My husband LOVED it. She is seriously the best and even though I am far away now (we moved) I feel like I will still use her for future photography needs!

Kathryn & Bryan

Jessica is the only photographer I consider and recommend to my friends. She photographed our engagement pictures, wedding, baby bump and will be the family photographer moving forward. As someone that is not great at getting her photo taken, I immediately feel comfortable and relaxed around Jessica. Her eye for color and using your natural surroundings to enhance the pictures is incredible and creative. She is not your average wedding photographer that is for sure.

Janelle Valles, Owner Shades for All Spray Tans

Jessica is the absolute best.  When initially looking for a photographer to take photographs of my models for my business. I contacted the only photographer I knew of and she was busy with a wedding, but highly recommended Jessica Maher. Jessica immediately returned my phone call and was so knowledgeable and helpful in finding a good location, gave advice on props/looks/colors, everything I would not have thought of.  The day of my photos she made my models feel completely at ease and the photos came out fantastic.  Just what I needed to upgrade the look of my business and website.  However, my work with Jessica didn't stop there, with her recommendation that I should one day enlarge these photos and put them on my walls, the time came for me to move to a new location and I took her advice.  She added one to acrylic and two others to metal and they came out absolutely stunning!  Jessica is so knowledgeable of what will look good and what will not and is completely honest in her opinions and guidance.   Her knowledge of camera angles, lighting, positioning, timing, etc made the photography sessions I've had with her flawless! All we had to do was show up and she took it from there.  I am so happy I met Jessica and have, and will continue to refer her to everyone I know looking for impeccable photography.  I wish there was a ten star review, because she is worthy of many more stars!!!!!

Stephanie & Carl
I looked at the work of many photographers located in Santa Barbara and the Central Coast and it became apparent that I was picky! When I saw Jessica's work I immediately knew that she was the one. It is hard to describe someone's art form but I think her photos captured the event perfectly and are not edited in (what I consider) weird ways, i.e.-fog isn't added to the photos for some "artistic" reason, every photo is not black and white-or sepia. But all the special moments are captured so well that she can pick the photo out of the bunch where everyone looks good! The family pictures (which can be hard) were done easily and she was able to control my family and get everyone where they needed to be! I have so many photos to pick from and I really like tooo many of them!!! Such special moments were captured! Also, Jessica is just really fun and chill!! A+

Lauren & Gregg

Jessica was our choice for our engagement shoot and for our wedding and we are extremely happy with the images. She is extremely professional and has an ease about her that made us all feel comfortable. She's flexible with any plan and went above and beyond. 5 stars from us!

Sam & Marco

Jessica is amazing! She was recommended to us for our wedding in June of 2015 through a mutual friend. I couldn't be more thankful. Her energy made me so calm the day of the wedding. She captured fun moments throughout the night of friends and family as well as beautiful portrait shots that we now having hanging in our home. She has since become our go to family photographer with the birth of our first child. Jessica is quick to respond to phone calls/ emails, but also very timely with getting photos back to you. The quantity and quality of the shots we get back after a session is never disappointing, it makes it hard to choose which to print.
Thanks to Jessica, precious moments in our lives have been beautifully captured for us to treasure.

Tisch & Gabe

Jessica took our first family of four pictures. She was amazing!  She came to Ventura and scouted the area we wanted. She was great with our three year old and four month old. We couldn't be happier with how the pictures came out and we'll definitely be using her again.

Francine & Alan

Jessica is the best! I met her through the Santa Barbara bridal expo 2017. I was looking for a really amazing photographer for my engagement pictures and I could not be luckier. Jessica is really professional and suuuuuuper talented! She made me and my fiancé to feel comfortable and the experience ended up being so fun! Jessica pays attention on details, from the perfect venue, styling and an amazing result! Thank you Jessica!
