ABOUT

Hello! I am Jessica No-tar-gia-como, an event and commercial photographer located in Woodstock Vermont but available for projects anywhere in the world.

I fell in love with the process of photography as a teen. Being attracted to rules, organization, and procedure, the darkroom was my sanctuary.

While pursuing my photography degree in Philadelphia I could not get enough of lighting, large format cameras, and the business that held it all together. Most importantly though, I fell in love with people and their stories. I learned how to tell your stories through my images from some of the best professional photographers in Philadelphia. They mentored me, hired me to run their studios and trusted me with their clients.

In 2007 I started a photography business in the Washington DC area with a friend and fellow photographer who was my opposite. We built and ran a very successful business for 9 years as Paired Images. However, after spending so much time focusing on business my entire being was calling for change and adventure.

My husband and I build out a van and spent most of 2016 traveling the country, hiking and climbing. It was one of the most challenging but rewarding things we’ve ever done. We decided to settle near my parents in Woodstock Vermont. Surrounded by the mountains we have found the calm and stillness we were looking for in our new home.

MY STYLE.

While I am naturally calm and somewhat reserved while documenting events, I am also quick to laugh and will use my experience to help you when needed. My goal is to make your event and the images awesome. I do this with minimal interruption. I am a very deliberate and patient shooter with a photojournalist style, but get bossy when it’s time for group portraits. My work is clear, consistent and honest. I prefer to work with the light around me, but will create my own when necessary. After the formalities are behind us you will find me on the dance floor.

PRICING.

For full day wedding coverage my fee starts at $5000. Please contact me for a complete price list or if your event requires customized pricing. If you are planning a commercial session please contact me with the details to receive a quote.

            MEETING

            After our initial email greetings comes the face-to-face. Whether our meeting is in person or over video chat, it is a crucial step in the process where we get to know each other. Any and all questions welcome!

          • 03

            PLANNING

            Now that we have gotten to know each other and the contract is signed the planning begins. I will work with you, your planner, and other vendors to make sure the event is awesome.

            PHOTOGRAPHY

            The planning is done, the day is here, now is the time to document the love, the joy, the details, family, friends, and sometimes the outrageous.

            DELIVERY

            Delivering the images to you is my favorite part of the process. Telling the story through images for you to relive the event and share with family and friends is why we do what we do. We will then talk about ways to create visual stories in the form of photo albums as the final step.
