What first attracted us to Jessilynns work was the honesty of her pictures. Jessilynn is able to capture the raw effortless love between her clients. Looking back at our engagement sessions, I think the thing we were most nervous about was being professionally photographed for the first time. Will it be awkward? Where do our arms go? What if we just cant stop giggling the whole time? Jessilynn made it easy. She is so down to earth and you can just tell from the first few shutters of her camera, that she loves what she does. You instantly feel that she is here for you and here to capture the love, laughter, and fun of your relationship.She is organized and experienced. She was amazing in helping us plan out our special day. Jessilynn emphasized the importance of us also enjoying our wedding day. She suggested that she would be taking us out for special moments like the sunset so we could either take a few pictures or just have moments to ourselves and breathe. To be honest this gave us an instant sigh of relief and they were moments we looked forward to on our wedding day.Anticipating our wedding day, I thought about our family, friends and guests who were special to us. Our guests are people who have impacted our lives and it was important that they share in the celebration of our next greatest adventure. We wanted our guests to enjoy themselves and have a good time filled with laughter and smiles. Jessilynn was already on top of it as she had asked us to prepare a list of guests we wanted to be sure not to miss. This was one less stress off of our shoulders.Our favourite part of the whole experience was feeling our nerves just melt away because we knew Jessilynn was looking out for our best interests. Our wedding day started off with thunderstorms! We ended up having to adjust our schedule on the fly in order to take full advantage of the pockets of sunshine we were gratefully given. As you can imagine, we were stressed and unsurprisingly behind schedule As I fell into stress mode, Jessilynn was realistic and firm in her encouragement that we shouldnt rush these parts of our wedding day. The moments I spent walking bare foot on the grass (because my heels were sinking into the freshly rained on grass), the moments spent laughing with our parents, groomsmens and bridesmaids, the moments embracing my soon to be husband perfectly captured by Jessilynns distant camera shutters.Jessilynn is passionate, bright and thoughtful. We can confidently say that the best decision we made was having Jessilynn capture the first day of our greatest adventure.
The first time I met Jessilynn was at the Canadas Bridal Show in January 2017. My Mom and I instantly connected with her and appreciated all the work she debuted. Then it hit me! This was not the first time I met her. Ive actually met her before! Jessi was one of the photographers from a Wedding I attended a few months back and the footage captured was beautiful. Funny how small the world is. Then, I actively reviewed Jessi portfolio via all social forums and knew then and there that I wanted her to be my Wedding photographer! It was everything that I felt our Engagement and Wedding photos should look like! I fell in love with her style of photography, which is natural, candid, fun and romantic. Even during our first meeting with Jessi, she was personable, friendly and never pushy with us. She was my first choice! It was so easy to talk to her and tell her what we were looking for, things we liked and disliked, and she respected our opinions, while making great suggestions. Jessi was able to put words into ideas that I simply could not! Whats great about Jessi is her knowledge and expertise in the industry as she was able to provide scheduling tips and tricks in my Wedding planning process. After Jessi gave us sneak peeks of our Engagement session, we knew it was the best decision choosing Jessilynn Wong Photography for our big day! We booked her and a second photographer for 14+ hours on August 18, 2018. Throughout the whole day, Jessi was professional, well-organized and always ready to shoot. Our One-Year Wedding anniversary is fast approaching and I still cannot put into words how beautiful our Wedding Day turned out! It happened so fast, but every time we look back at our Wedding photos, the feelings are all there! Every aspect of our Wedding was captured wonderfully and I cannot thank Jessi enough for all her hard work. Jessi is energetic, fun, passionate, and if you have the pleasure of booking her, you will not regret your decision. We highly recommend her!
Jessilynn took our engagement photos this spring at a local park, and they turned out beautifully. She was super easy to work with; we even had to reschedule a couple of times and she was incredibly understanding and accommodating. She coached us through the whole shoot, and some of the seemingly out-of-the-box ideas actually ended up being our favourite photos. We would recommend Jessilynn to anyone looking to work with a photographer who can capture those little, unexpected moments.
Finding the right photographer was one of the most important tasks for our wedding day. Jessilynn's portfolio immediately caught our eye for her documentary style with lots of great candid shots and lack of overly posed portraits. We wanted our outdoor vineyard wedding to be romantic, classy yet fun, and the pictures to reflect exactly that. From when first met to every step of the process, Jessilynn really put in the time and effort to let us communicate our vision, listened to our concerns, and made many helpful suggestions. Her experience with weddings was instrumental in our planning process. By the time our wedding day arrived we were comfortable with her and more than confident in her abilities. Jessilynn made being photographed all day effortless and fun, she was always ready to go, jumping in wherever the action was. If we felt like being spontaneous she'd be right there with us, while in other moments gave us just enough direction to get a variety of shots that still felt natural. We are absolutely delighted by the results, they look even better than we imagined. If you like the candid style of photography and gorgeous wedding photos we recommend Jessilynn.
I had met Jessilynn about 2 years ago just around the time I was planning a proposal to my wife. She was out in BC shooting, and I had called her. I had an entire elaborate plan at the Distillery District in Toronto, with my soon to be fiance's friends...fireworks and pretty much over the top stuff. Jessilynn provided perspective and helped me simplify the plan. A very simple proposal right in front of the love locks followed by an intimate photo shoot. We were extremely happy with our pictures. It only made sense that I wanted her to capture our wedding, so I reached out to her and we agreed on the perfect package for us. During our engagement shoot Jessilynn was very accommodating as she extended our shoot due to us running out of daylight. For our wedding, Jessilynn got us a second shooter who just like herself was great to work with. Jessilynn was very punctual and her response time to emails is a quick turnaround. She was able to exceed expectations when meeting our schedule requirements for the wedding timeline of events. Jessilynn delivered our album as promised on time and we were beyond ecstatic about how it turned out. I being very particular with my attention to detail, was taken care of by a very patient Jessilynn who also shared in my vision. Jessilynn is an excellent choice for your special day!!!! #jessilynnwongphotography
