Wedding and Portrait Photography Logo


  • Hi!  I’m Jessica and I love my job!

  • I was nine years old when my parent’s bought me my first camera (A disc camera!  Remember those?) and I’ve never given it up…. except now I have to buy my own cameras.  I honestly love what I do.  I get to work with THE BEST people out there and many of my clients have become friends.

  • A few other things about me, I am married to an amazing guy and have three sweet little boys.  I adore my little family and enjoy spending time with them.  With all these boys around, things can get a little crazy, but sometimes I think I excel with crazy.  I will pull the car over in a hurry if I spot a promising yard sale, so don’t plan your weddings too early on Saturdays (wink, wink… but seriously). I am addicted to sugar, especially York peppermint patties.  There are times I try to give it up, but I really don’t think it will happen anytime soon.  Besides photography, my other favorite thing to do is craft!  I always have a glue-gun nearby.  Oh, and I use way too many exclamation points when I write….

  • Based in Erie, Pennsylvania, I do all sorts of photography, including weddings, families, and seniors.  I love working with people and always have fun with the individuals that I am blessed to encounter.  I especially love weddings and put my full heart into making sure that this once-in-a-lifetime day will be captured in all of its fullness.  I always meet with the bride and groom before the wedding to ensure that I clearly understand specific needs, goals, and visions of the images that you want.
  • Not only do I spend a great deal of time working with you during your event or photo session, but I also review each photograph individually afterwards to ensure that you receive a photograph of the highest quality.  I provide high-quality services to my clients at competitive reasonable rates.

  • Thank you for your interest in Joyful Expressions and enjoy the site!
