I’m a fun-loving and easygoing wedding and portrait photographer based out of Charlotte, North Carolina serving joyful couples throughout the Southeast and beyond!

Since I started this business, I knew that my priority would always be to love and serve my clients well. I truly believe in having a servant’s heart in everything that you do, therefore, I would genuinely go to the end of this Earth for every single one of my clients. They are family. 

When I’m not photographing a wedding, you can find me snuggling my cats, binging a new show on Netflix, planning my next vacation, relaxing at a local brewery, or traveling the world with my high school sweetheart.

Hi there! I’m Yessica!

And yes, it’s pronounced just how it’s spelled! 

my little family

My child. A true queen. She’s needy, easily offended, and never stops talking. She wishes she was an only child and her love language is definitely words of affirmation. And much like her momma, she receives attention when she wants it, not the other way around. 

ALASKA

MY FIRST BABY

My right hand man on wedding days. We met during our freshman year of high school where we instantly became friends. Fast forward to junior year where that friendship became much more, and we’ve spent the next years of our lives learning, growing, and going on adventures together!

WILSON

My high school sweetheart

The quirkiest kitty you will ever meet. He’s the world’s biggest lap cat, probably a dog, and a little bit of a catnip addict. I can’t promise that he won’t steal your bacon, but I can absolutely promise that he’ll steal your heart, much like he stole mine. His love language? Physical touch.

PARADISE

Maybe it’s because I was born in Cuba and lived in Florida for a portion of my childhood, but I LOVE paradise. Anything tropical gets me EXCITED. Clearly, my ideal vacation is lying on a beach in the Carribbean. 

BREWERIES

Wil and I love trying out new breweries. It’s become somewhat of a tradition for us. We just enjoy going out, having a few beers, and talking about life together. 

FLOWERS

Flowers get me excited! Not only are they essential on my dining room table, but they are easily one of my favorite things to photograph. If I had to choose a favorite flower, it would definitely be the hibiscus!

The MOVIES

When Wil and I are bored, we usually look at each other and ask if we want to go to the movies. It’s one of our go-to past times and favorite things to do together. There is just something relaxing about sitting in a theater giving something your undivided attention, a classic Coke in one hand.

TRAVEL

One New Years, I decided to make a resolution to travel to four different places every year, whether it’s a new city within driving distance or all across the globe. So far, I’ve kept that resolution and continue checking off, and adding, places to my bucket list.

True Crime

I am a bit OBSESSED with true crime. I can watch true crime documentaries for hours and you'll find me listening to the Crime Junkie podcast during every car ride. Maybe I was meant to be a detective is another life?!
