Women in the Wedding Business | Supporting Small Businesses | Jessica J Events, Wedding Planner | Columbia, Maryland

Starting your own business can be a scary task. You have to be organized, motivated, risk taker...along with so many other qualities. When I first started my photography business full time I was worried every single day. I still worry to this day, but not as much as I used to. You constantly have the thought of supporting yourself and your family in the back of your mind along with trying to go above and beyond for your clients.

Jessica is a wedding planner and her business is Jessica J Events. She not only puts together weddings in Maryland and all surrounding areas but is also a destination wedding planner. 

Jessica and I have been friends for a few months now and when she asked me if I could take her headshots for her website/social media, I was so honored. I know it may seem like "they're just headshots, why get so excited?" These photos mean more to me than just updating her website. It's a chance to make another woman feel great about herself. It's a chance to shine that spotlight on a woman who devotes her time and efforts into making other people happy and to be treated like a queen for a day. I am also super excited because I will be photographing her wedding this September! So congratulations to this newlywed!

No matter if you are a small business owner or not, everyone deserves the chance to feel beautiful and to have lovely photos of themselves taken. It helps raise your confidence and freezes those memories in time.

I am always looking to collaborate with local small businesses so if you are interested, please email me and we can chat!
