Jess | Photographer Brand Session in Richmond, Virginia

Jess is the wonderful photographer behind Jessica Lapp Photography, a wedding photography studio from the central Virginia serving Charlottesville & surrounding areas. Jess and I met in Carytown, Richmond for a headshot exchange, wandering around and finding all the cute walls. Jess and I proceeded to have lunch at my favorite Richmond spot, Stella’s Grocery.

Jess and I have very similar styles–of photography and goals for business, it was so nice to chat with someone who was very much on the same page as me. I hope to work with Jess as her second shooter at some point, but until then, I’ll gladly support another wonderful friend!
