Jessica Giblin Photography bio picture
  • I’m Jess!

    LIFE. PASSION. ADVENTURE. JOY. Standing beneath streams of golden light, he’s telling you a secret, your arms are wrapped around his neck and that secret results in a burst of wide open LAUGHTER. This is my goal as a photographer, to constantly seek moments of beauty in light, color and capture your colorful life.

    As a result of my love for people and art, I graduated from Sonoma State in 1993 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in ART. Living with my husband in Northern California, we’re recent empty nesters, resulting in two over-indulged, naughty hound dogs who enjoy running our show.

    Tell me about yourself... Are you a hard-working mama, putting everyone before yourself and needing a reminder of who you are; a little glimpse back into that inner SPARKLE? Perhaps you have a vision your family cuddled up on a blanket in a grassy, sun dappled field, knowing these moments together are so, so fleeting, wanting to remember things that are SIMPLE and pure. Are you starting your new life with THE ONE that gets your heart beating fast, who will one day know you to your core and be your biggest fan anyway? Write me a little note, share your vision and together we’ll help you REMEMBER. DISCOVER. CAPTURE.

Seth & Nelly |San Francisco Wedding Photographer

There’s not a lot better than a bride on roller skates. And yes, it happened…. and it was amazing. I love people that don’t take themselves too seriously; who can, on their wedding day, be themselves and have fun doing it. I’d never been to Stern Grove and was mesmerized by the woodsy, quiet feel in the heart of San Francisco. It smelled of wood smoke and had a pretty little pond, a sun dappled field and an adorable little manor. Basically, a photographers dream. Pair that with the coolest couple EVER and you have some pretty special moments.  Add the hand-made dress, the paper flowers made from pages of ‘The Princess Bride” and watch me do a happy dance! It’s not a pretty dance but I can’t help myself. I’m excitable like that.:)

Bre & Jamie/Longview Meadow/Farmstead

This gorgeous affair started at Solage in Calistoga.  Jim went in to photograph Jamie while I documented Bre and her best friend’s preparations with Jocelyn.  Have to love a little jumping on the bed action before getting dressed! A beautiful location that I’ll hopefully be returning to in the future. This time to check out the spa services. Oh Yeah!

We traveled together to Longview Meadow/Farmstead one of Jim and my favorite places to eat. We were so excited when Bre and Jamie mentioned they were getting married here. We love everything about Farmstead. The food, ambiance, the garden. EVERYTHING! It was an exceptionally hot day so finding shade was little bit of a challenge.  Bre and Jamie didn’t let the 106 temps get to them and we had a blast photographing all over the farm. We crossed the street and took advantage of the vineyards at sunset and adorable vintage truck.

Kendra from Pfeiffer Event Planning kept everything moving along and without a hitch.

This was just a beautiful, intimate day full of love, friends, family and good times. Thank you Bre and Jamie for allowing us to capture your amazing day! We’re honored.
