"If it was up to me I would have her photograph my son every few months. Kids grow so fast and her photos bring so much joy to us. I will use her for all of our family photos for as long as possible. I think the best way to describe her work is she captures the energy, essence, soul, and breath of the person. She sees the love and joy in a family and brings that into the photo. She is so relaxed that our baby was so happy and he took the most amazing photos. Our family and friends swoon over them."
Her level of passion, dedication, energy, and love that she puts into her work is unmatched. She cares deeply about the people she works with and about the work she does, and it shows in her pictures. She's the kind of person who you will want to have with you on your wedding day, every step of the way. Not just as a photographer, but as a person! Don't pass up an opportunity to work with her, whether it be for your wedding or for a family shoot or anything in between--she's one of a kind.

Book her. You will love her! Jessica is such a gift to the MN wedding community. We started working with Jessica about a year before our wedding & I am so grateful for her sweet heart, calming presence, and sound advice she offered us along the way. Her photographs tell stories. She is brilliant in her ability to capture the subtle moments and candid moments of your day and of your love. Our photographs are beautiful--soft & breezy--and I tear up when I page through them because they do such a remarkable job of reflecting the joy & love of that day. Our engagement snaps are precious, too. I'm so grateful to have an album of pictures that authentically capture that stage in our relationship. Jessica is a dream to work with--responsive, attentive, creative, and kind. She is at ease behind her lens, but is so down-to-earth and lovely that you will feel completely comfortable (and have FUN) at your shoots. My husband & I consider her a dear friend, and hiring her to be a part of our wedding journey was the best decision we made! I can't recommend her highly enough.

The photographer was one of the wedding decisions I felt VERY strongly about. My husband and I weeded through countless photographer websites and reviews before we found Jessica. After looking at her portfolio and chatting over Skype I was knew she was the photographer for us! Her "capture the moments" style was exactly what I had been searching for. Jessica was responsive and helpful through the entire planning process. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early and made sure to capture the moments I outlined in the weeks leading up to the big day. Although I selected her for her "capture the moment" style, she was also able to capture the formal shots as well. It's rare to find a photographer that is good at both! Jessica was extremely accommodating and she had great energy the day of. My husband and I were married on Friday and she had our photos complete by Sunday! I can't even express how beautifully they turned out! I had very high expectations and Jessica surpassed them all! I can't wait to hang them up in our home and look back at them for years to come.

Where do I even begin to explain how awesome a photographer Jessica is. She has such a kind and wonderful soul that you know when she takes your photos that something magical is going to happen. The reason I love Jessica and her photos so much is because she puts her heart and soul into these photos and I don't feel that you get that anywhere else. We have received more compliments on our wedding photos and we are absolutely in love with them. Jessica has such a classic yet simple look that I want to hang every photo in my house. Jessica captured our true selves and that is what makes her photos so special. We adore her and I promise you won't be disappointed in booking her as your wedding photographer.

"I was blown away at how beautiful the photos turned out, I know so much of this had to do with the person behind the camera. This girl has such a talent and love for what she does. Her photos told our story perfectly. She has a gift for capturing the feeling in an image. I LOVE our candid/natural shots! She catches those little special moments that you thought were missed. In each photo you get a sense of the love in the atmosphere. I've gotten so many compliments from people when they look at our wedding album, the most common word I've heard is "breathtaking", and that's exactly what her pictures did to me. The first time I looked at them I was speechless and in tears"
"I highly recommend Jessica Holleque as a wedding photographer. She responded promptly and professionally to all of my questions and concerns. In our personal meeting, she clearly communicated her philosophy of wedding photography, then worked with me to capture the images my fiance and I cared most about. On the wedding day, she conducted herself with professionalism and intuitive knowledge of wedding day jitters. (Thank goodness for her calming presence and flexibility). After the wedding, she edited and presented the images swiftly. They are stunning! Jessica Holleque exceeded my expectations and captured the magic of my wedding!"

Jessica is incredibly talented, her calm nature made me (a spazy, awkward, uncomfortable in front of a camera gal) feel comfortable and at ease. Never did she make my husband or I feel like we needed to pose or look for her to catch a moment. She is amazing at catching the most beautiful small moments, when you think no one is looking. She is, and thats what sets her apart from so many others. She is an artist and you can see how passionate she is about her work by reading her blogs or looking at her work. Love, love, love her!!!!!
