Stringing lines of words together across a page cannot convey the gratitude I feel for our wedding and engagement shoot pictures. I am so grateful for the raw talent, diligence and organic approach of Jess and Rod at Jess Petrie. They are beautiful souls, a fantastic team and we couldn’t have asked for better people to share in our happiness.
When the images arrived, I was just lost for words. All I did the whole day was blubber and weep. I couldn’t have ever imagined that wedding photos could be so natural, light and beautiful. Jess’ style is so captivating and I cannot believe we have these gorgeous images to share with our family and reflect on always. I cannot thank her enough.

Our photographer was Jess Petrie. Jess and her support, Rod, are a dream team. We knew from the moment we met them on our engagement photoshoot that they were the perfect photographers for us. They were friendly, engaged, made us feel relaxed, and most importantly took photos that we loved. They were involved in all of the important moments but it never felt as if they were intruding, they were just like other guests (which I hope they will take as a compliment). That allowed them to capture not just us but also our family and friends, some of my favourite photos are the candid shots of our guests.
Jess & Chris
Hi guys, we received our wedding images last night and the memories of a wonderful day came flooding back as we looked through them. You've captured everything more beautifully than we could ever have wished for they truly are a piece of art.
Please pass on our gratitude to your lovely husband who kept the boys thoroughly entertained in the morning and has caught some fab photos of them and our family and friends. Thank you both so much again, everything is perfect! We are very ecstatic!!!
Chloe & Joel
Having Jess and Rodrigo as our wedding photographers were quite simply the best decision we made during our months of wedding planning! From our initial e-mail discussions to our engagement shoot and then receiving our wedding photographs shortly after getting back from our honeymoon - they have been nothing short of professional, friendly and a joy to be around. They captured all those important moments on our wedding day with so much light and beauty that it is hard to believe it is really us when we are looking at them! Our family and friends have given so many compliments on our photographs. Thank you Jess and Rodrigo - we just wish we could do it all again!
Rachel & Dom
Dear Jess & Rod, We wanted to express our huge thanks again for our beautiful wedding photos! You guys were so great and went above and beyond for us - thank you so so much! We adore our photos and we will treasure them forever, hopefully this won't be the last we see of the JP dream-team, With love xx
Jen & Giles
We are so happy we chose Jess to capture our wedding as she did a superb job and really went above and beyond! The engagement shoot we had really put us at ease in her company and resulted in some wonderful, artistic pictures that showed us how talented she is and what a great eye she has. During the wedding day itself Jess and Rod were very unobtrusive and some lovely candid shots during the dinner and as the guests were mingling throught the day. The pictures of us together by ourselves were beautiful and really romantic. They are very special and will be taking pride of place in our house! Looking back at the photos of us both getting ready and during the ceremony brings back everything we felt on the day and makes us feel quite emotional. Thanks so much Jess & Rod, you were the perfect choice and really told our story in the best possible way!
Rob & Morna
Dear Jess and Rodrigo, thank you so much for being part of our celebrations for our Sheffield Wedding. We felt so comfortable sharing our most joyful, solemn, and momentous days with you both. You really do catch-dreams and you managed to capture and create images of our love and the love of our families that are better than we could have ever dreamed. With love and heartfelt thanks.
Becky & Gavin
Hey Jess Petrie Photography, we have just received the wedding photographs and they are stunning, we are so pleased. Thank you for everything right from the start….we couldn't have wished for a better photographer. You made us feel at ease and nothing has been too much! You and Rodrigo work great together and you are both FAB!!! Thanks again.
Rebecca & Jonny
Booking Jess Petrie Photography was without a doubt the best decision we made for our wedding day. She was the first wedding photographer we came across when we began searching. I immediately fell in love with her work and immediately knew I wanted our wedding photos to look like that. At first, we didn’t think we had enough in the budget; I was determined to have Jess so decided to give up my Manolo Blahniks and use the money towards the photography instead; Ben was stunned that I was willing to forego my dream shoes but Jess was so very worth it and now we have the most amazing photographs to look back on forever XX
Amy & Ben
I don't think words can even begin to express how much we loved having you both there to share our special day at The Ashes. Your photographs are truly unique and beautiful in every way - you have captured the love and happiness shared amongst us and our loved ones in the most sweetest, sincere and romantic way. Our hearts are filled with so much joy and love every time we look at them, and we still cannot believe this was our wedding day! We feel like we have made two wonderful friends, who we will keep close to our hearts, thank you xx
Chrisi & Ben
Hi Jess and Rod, thank you so much for the incredible job you did photographing our wedding. Each image brings back wonderful memories and you really have captured all of the love and fun of our day. We were conscious about the balance between not spending too much of our day posing for photographs with getting photographs that we would treasure forever. You did this perfectly and honestly we didn't notice you were there a lot of the time!
Alex & Hannah
The minute we looked at Jess's website we knew we had found our photographer. We loved how Jess used natural light and we loved every single picture we saw which Jess had taken. Jess has a way of making you feel very relaxed around her and I felt I had known her ages after our pre wedding shoot. Jess's style was exactly what we wanted. We didn’t want lots of formal pictures, we wanted more a story of the day told in pictures, however not too 'staged' magazine style. Just our day exactly as it was and Jess did this perfectly, along with her husband Rodrigo. They were with us from getting ready until after the first dance and were brilliant and made me and carl feel completely at ease, and we considered them guests to our wedding as well as photographers. Neither of us really like our pictures taken but they made us feel very relaxed. We are so happy with our pictures from Jess and couldn't thank her enough.
Cheryl & Carl
Jess and her partner were fantastic. They put both Ian and myself to ease, laughed with us and caught some very natural shots, which is just what we wanted. On the day you never knew they were there but the results are amazing. The style of the photographs is just beautiful and many people have told me they are the best they have seen. We can't stop looking back at them as they do bring the day to life again.
Amy & Ian
You are incredible. I am so glad we booked you to be our wedding photographer. Despite the inclement weather you still managed to capture our day so beautifully. It really tells the sort of our day, I can't tell you how many times we have looked at our beautiful album so far which we have had only a few weeks! Your ability speaks for itself in the images you produce. Your kind nature means people rant just getting a photographer, but also a friend.
Sarah & Mark
Within ten minutes of meeting Jess, we knew we'd found our wedding photographer. Her love and enthusiasm for the job shone through and she was visualising our wedding in the exact same way as we were. We thoroughly enjoyed the pre-shoot, lapping up the sunshine in Blackpool. it was one of the funniest days of our lives! I wont ever forget telling Jess that we wanted to have our pre-wedding shoot at the fun fair - she was all over the idea! The end result of these photo's were amazing. I look at them all of the time and I still love how she's captured the fun atmosphere of the British seaside. Our wedding photos are something else... Every photo of our wedding day has captured something that we didn't see. That's a truly professional photographer for you. That's Jess Petrie.
Claire & Olly
Jess is more that just a wedding photographer,she's an artist who captures the special memories of your day, she's unassuming, discreet, professional and above all totally committed to you and your guests. Jess is a master in her craft; planning shoots ahead of your day, arriving at the venue just before your agreed time, finding different locations, ideal spots and romantic scenery in which to capture you as your day unfolds. Her approach puts you at ease, her personality lifts you and the magical way in which she moves around your ceremony, guests, venue and surroundings will leave you wondering how she captured those rare, unique moments in time, long after the camera stops clicking. We never saw Jess with the camera in anyone's face, we almost forgot she was there! The moments she has captured however are pure art and an everlasting memory on film. I couldn't have asked for more in a photographer; she's not pushy, not salesy, not traditional (unless you want that) and doesn't use technical computer whizz kits to improve or touch up your photographs; its all about location and pure natural light; a true master with a camera. If you are looking for wedding photos that capture those unique moments; your guests looking on lovingly, the tears that spring as you take your vows, the evening dance moves and the laughter that follows, then you need Jess in your life. Jess in an artist as well as a photographer....anyone can point and shoot a camera...but only Jess can turn it into art. Thank you for being 'awesome' Jess. With love.
Hayely & Scott
When we first met Jess we immediately fell in love with her work. Her warm and gentle personality was refreshing (compared to the other ‘hard-sell’ photographers we’d met). We decided there and then that she was the one for us! She communicated with us on numerous occasions to discuss our big day and to understand the structure behind it. A few weeks later a pre-wedding shoot was arranged to get us comfortable in front of the camera (the shots she took were phenomenal!). When the big day arrived, she blended in amongst all our guests and snapped away at all the little moments that caught her eye. Being of Ukrainian descent, we included many of the Ukrainian traditions during both the ceremony and the reception. She captured and documented each special moment beautifully. The presentation of the photo album was incredible. She was very professional throughout and we’d highly recommend her. Thank you so much again Jess!
Sarah-Jane & Andre
Jess & Rod - thank you so much for our wonderful wedding photographs. All of our family and friends continue to be blown away by how unique and stunning they are and how perfectly you captured the spirit of our day. You fit in so well and really made us feel at ease, like we have known you forever! We really couldn't of asked for more. Our favourites are the ones of us sat in the deckchairs, and the ones on the beach and in the sea, and the ones dancing... In fact, I could go on! Many will be framed with pride in our home until we are old and wrinkly, and looked back on throughout our life together, which is a wonderful thing. You both have an amazing natural gift and ability to capture stunning and creative images and make it look easy. The relationship you both have with your camera is strong and innate, and you clearly know just how to work with the light, play with your locations and understand your subjects in any circumstance and get the most out of any photographic opportunity. And yet, it feels that it goes beyond your cameras, to your understanding of people, relationships and capturing beautiful moments. So once again, thank you a million times, we will be back for family portraits in the future!
Rachael & Jordan
Hey Jess & Rod. Our pictures arrived on Friday and I have spent ALL weekend looking at them, sharing them and copying them. It has brought our wedding day to life again! Moments that you captured would have been lost and never been spoken about. Your pictures tell the story, gently and with romance. They then make us laugh, get emotional and then we look all over again. I'm very proud of them and am really really grateful for everything you did. You let the day flow naturally and that shows in the images. Everyone loves them and they really are to be treasured. I love love love them. Well done you - amazeballs.
Gail & Mick
I work in PR and come across photographers daily. Jess was a breath of fresh air and really took the time to get to know us. She even did a pre shoot for us in Lake Como to get us comfortable with her and her style. The result was amazing and she really captured our personalities and instinctively knew who and what was important. There were no hidden extras...she gave us what she promised and more, we made the best decision ever!
Lou & Chris
Jess we wouldn’t even know where to begin thanking you! Our wedding day was a dream come true, a true fairy tale made complete with you there as our photographer. Every detail was captured and every image shows how happy our day was. We can’t stop looking at our photos!! Thank you so much for everything you have done for us, we were privalaged to have met you and been able to share in your talent. You’re bubbly, easy going personality shines through in every image and captures the true meaning of what a photo should be. Thank you a million more times!
Lou & Justin
Jess you did amazing!!! The pictures make me wanna cry as it represents our day so much!! I cannot express how happy We are with them, they are unbelieveable! Thank u so much again, you were our best decision of the wedding and I will never forget how brill you were and how you have totally made memories for us to cherish forever.
Helena & Joe
Jess was our wedding photographer for our wedding on the 31st of August 2013. Right from meeting Jess on our pre-wedding shoot she made us feel comfortable and we had some fantastic photos which definitely made us feel more relaxed on the day itself. We really liked her calm and unobtrusive manner, we got the family shots that you would expect, but the creative shots that only Jess seems to be able to see which were absolutely amazing. Thank you Jess and Rodrigo, we would recommend you to everyone! Best wishes for your creative future.
Demma & James
Dear Jess, Thank you very much, kheili Mamnoon, cok sag olun, cok tessekur ediram, merci beaucoup, Shukran, Obrigada, Grazie Tante, Bahut shukria, Arigato.
I could go on forever and still not find as many ways as you deserve to say THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for everything! For being the most amazing photographer, being a good friend and confidante, being great company, being so genuine, being reliable and punctual, getting on with everyone so well, bringing the lovely Rodrigo as you second shooter and so many other things. You captured our emotions on the day so elegantly, and we can truly relive the moments by looking at our gallery of photos. On top of capturing the emotions we felt on the day you have also captured the beautiful emotions of our friends and family we may have otherwise missed. I just cannot recommend you enough. My friends would all like to book you for their weddings. Your pictures have made me not regret the few things I was not happy with on the day because it all came together and was so much fun exactly as it was. I can't believe how you managed to capture so much. That is how discreet you were and how well you understood and knew what Davood and I wanted.
Parya & Davood
Out of 5 different photography companies I choose Jess because from the very first phone call she put me so at ease, her pleasant chilled out personally - almost like an instant friend, listening and understanding our needs. She has this open friendly attitude, and is a very hands-on girl. Her work was amazing, natural shots, and fantastic imagination captured our wedding perfectly. Jess admitted from the start she had never covered a chinese wedding, she took interest in our culture so she could understand our rituals to ensure she knew what was important to us, throughout our big day, she stayed in the background, focusing on her work, and she so delivered, she made sure she knew exactly what was required from her so while she was photographing, we would not feel anxious and felt totally natural. My husband is very shy, and he was very comfortable around Jess. We totally loved her and would recommend her to friends and family in the future.
Suzie & Kwai
Thank you so, so much for the truly incredible photographs, we were left speechless and in complete awe of your work. You have captured our day so perfectly, exceeding our expectations completely. You are so very talented and we cannot thank you enough for being a part of our day and providing us with such beautiful memories we will cherish forever.
You went above and beyond in every sense of the word and not once did you appear stressed or flustered by anything asked of you. So many of our guests commented on how relaxed yet professional you remained throughout the day; we couldn't have asked for a more perfect person to capture it-thank you from the bottom of our hearts ❤ I never in a million years thought I would see myself looking so lovely and natural at the same time, so thank you on a personal level for making that dream a reality.
Kirsty & Tom
There was never any other choice for Tony and I when it came to choosing our wedding photographer. I'd followed Jess' facebook page and always loved her photos of weddings, boudoir and just in general. We loved her style and felt it matched perfectly with the mood of our wedding. We had a pre-wedding photo shoot and we felt instantly comfortable with Jess and Rodrigo, both were very relaxed and we just chatted away without even realising time was passing, a great sign! The day of the wedding Jess was such a calming presence and totally unobtrusive. We didn't want lots of formal photos and she captured what we wanted perfectly. Beautifully created photos, showing the love, lots of laughter and fun that we wanted to shine throughout the day. Personalities of the wedding party were clear to see and we'll have those reminders for years to come. Tony and I appreciate the effort and care Jess showed and appreciate it tremendously. Thank you for our memories Jess xx
Emma & Tony
For those who know me, I am really particular with photography - although I’m not a professional, I like to think I keep things ‘arty’ so picking a wedding photographer was by far my biggest decision, I wanted someone who would capture the feelings - and not a checklist of ‘wedding photos’. Jess got it. Right from the first conversation, our engagement shoot and our wedding day, Jess was an absolute dream and her work is incredible. She has the kindest soul and has become a friend over the past 2 years. To all those newly engaged couples, take a look at Jess’ work - meet her for a coffee - you’ll instantly know you made the right decision. Thank you for making our honky tonk look so elegant and for the memories that will soon be plastered all over our home xxx
