My Story

(Photo by Jessica Overholt Photography)

In 2002, when I took my first photography class, my dad gave me my first 35mm film camera. In 2007, when I became a mother, he gave me my first dslr. In 2008, when he died, I began to use photography as a way to remember him. As I began to document my own new family, I had no idea how quickly and organically photography would turn into a business I love so much. I’m now the mother of four daughters, who remind me every day the value of family, life, and celebrations.

My approach is clean and modern with an emphasis on capturing the authentic moments and the true emotion of your day. I love getting caught up in a wedding day, the details you’ve worked so hard on, and the love your day is centered on. Don't tell anyone, but I usually shed a tear or two during the first dances. Weddings are often just the beginning of my relationships with clients, as so many turn into friends that I see year after year to photograph as their families grow.
