Picture of Jess Petrie


I’m Jess and I take photos of people in love…

I approach my work as an artist and a quiet observer.  I am unobtrusive in my approach, creating artful photographs inspired by your love, joy, and emotion.

Want to know how it all started?  In 2004 I graduated with a bachelor of arts in art film photography, I went on to working for some of the U.K’s leading portrait studios, followed by a re-location to Australia, where I worked as a photo-journalist.  I then headed back to the U.K where I graduated as a teacher and ran therapeutic art workshops for schools and charities.  Later I freelanced and started my own wedding and portrait photography business, which is now full-time.

Now Based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, I cover everything from the English Spring/Summer weddings and winter wonderland weddings, whether in the city, local village, or gorgeous countryside, to sun-drenched ceremonies on far-away shores.  I love to travel!

I also photograph families, babies, pregnancy and boudoir. For anything else please don’t hesitate to enquire.

I am also registered with the photographic charity The Butterfly Wishes Network.

I’m green hearted and proud!  I am a huge supporter of local businesses and all of my products are locally sourced and eco-friendly.

Oh and I’m addicted to popcorn!
