Hey, hey, heyyyyy! My name is Jessica (aka Wayfaring Wanderer) and I am a free-spirited photographer who loves working with couples, individuals, and families who are committed to travel, adventure, and laid-back lifestyles. I've lived in the Boone, NC area since 2005 and I'm known for capturing the spirit of the folks I photograph—the expressions, gestures, and details that are outward expressions of our innermost selves. While I'm primarily a wedding + elopement photographer, I also love working with individuals/couples/families that are traveling to the High Country area to getaway to the mountains. I absolutely love what I do and am so grateful to work with some of the most amazing people in one of the most beautiful places EVAR. Let’s go on an adventure!
February 10, 2017
I’m willing to bet that one of the ways you connect with your partner is through adventuring together. You might love to “Netflix & Chill” like it’s going out of style but the thrill of adventure always beckons. Whether it’s a hike in the woods, brunching at your favorite restaurant, or a quick getaway to explore a new city/state. You have fun together no matter what you do.
I love photographing adventurous couples that enjoy making new memories and spending time connecting in the great outdoors. I get a lot of joy out of capturing a love story for a newly engaged couple. I believe that this special time in your lives should be captured so that you can remember this significant part of your journey before you get married.
My goal is not only to capture real moments as they naturally unfold, but it’s also to ensure that you’re having a great experience that is fun and carefree.
