THE L&L 
philosophy

AT LOVE & LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS, WE BELIEVE WHEN THE FLOWERS WILT, THE CAKE IS CUT, AND THE BAND PACKS UP FOR THE EVENING, ALL THAT REMAINS IS THE LOVE AND LIGHT THAT HAS BEEN CAPTURED IN A SIMPLE PHOTOGRAPH. WE BELIEVE IN THE EFFORTLESSLY CHIC. WE BELIEVE IN HAPPY BRIDES, CHAMPAGNE ‘JUST BECAUSE’, AND MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS WITH OUR COUPLES. we believe in to-die-for details straight out of the pages of a glossy fashion magazine. 

but we also believe in capturing family moments. from your grandmother’s beautiful smile to a big hug from dad, and other fleeting memories that make our heart ache with love. we believe the magic of perfectly capturing your day lives somewhere in between the free spirit creative & the type a organizer we will be with you while stepping into your dream gown all the way to your sparkler exit and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

LAUREN & MIKE

FROM LAUREN... I am SO thrilled we snagged L&l up for our wedding day - what would I have done without them?? From the moment we saw our beautiful engagement photos - taken during a wet snowy day in FEBRUARY no less - we were psyched waiting for October to come around. the l&l team were as sweet and patient as could be with our families and (giant) bridal party and captured every moment so beautifully and naturally. Thank you so much for having the intuition to get shots I didn't even have to ask for and checking on us throughout the night making sure we were having a blast. You were not only an irreplaceable vendor but a true friend throughout the planning process, answering every question I had without hesitation. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

OKAY, OKAY THAT'S GREAT! HOW DO WE BOOK ALREADY?!
we are excited to get started as well! please contact the studio for more information where we will have you fill out a little questionnaire. if we are available on your date, we will send you a guide on the love & light experience. from there, coffee dates and details ensue! we are so excited to get to know you!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE TO YOU BOOK?
we typically connect with couples when they have their wedding date and venue locked down. that way, we can start discussing the day with a clear vision. we usually book weddings about a year to a year in a half in advance. if your wedding is further out, no worries! contact us a little closer to the big day - we look forward to hearing from you!

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
jessa and her team work out of her home studio located in little silver, new jersey. we love connecting over coffee if you are local and can also set up a video call if you are from out of town! we absolutely love capturing weddings all over the tri-state area and we are also available for destination weddings.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY? 
jessa is a hybrid shooter which means she shoots both digital and medium format film. we specialize in lifestyle photography. throughout your wedding day, jessa takes the time to art direct a scene by placing you in the best light and removing distractions. once you are set up in the prettiest of settings, she lets the natural moment unfold. throughout the day we are on the look out for candids, but love portraits and editorial details as well. there are times where l&l takes the lead and other moments you won't even know we are there, depending on the time of day.

DO YOU SHOOT VIDEO AS WELL? 
we don't! we are a photography studio. upon booking, we provide our couples with a curated list of our favorite vendors in the wedding industry so hopefully that helps!  

HOW ABOUT FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY? 
we specialize in wedding photography. maternity and baby photography is a specialty in of itself! in order to give our full attention to our wedding clients, we are unable to take on any sessions such as these. thank you so much for understanding! 

WHAT GEAR DO YOU CARRY?
for digital we shoot with canon mark iii's along with prime lenses ranging from the 35 mm to 135 mm. you can also find us sporting the contax 645 when we are shooting medium format film. when (and only when) there is no natural light, it's time for our canon 600ex flashes!
