It's me, JADA!

your southern california photographer + beyond

I graduated college in May 2021 where I studied Entrepreneurship and Communications + Media so I just moved to SoCal a couple of months ago and am always looking for new friends here!! I started photography because my grandma was my inspiration. When I was little she had such a unique house filled with antiques we would play dress up with her hats and spend hours looking through her photo albums and making scrapbooks by cutting out pictures in magazines. I have a passion for event planning as well and I plan styled shoots often so it’s actually a secret dream of mine to try wedding planning out. I was an avid athlete is high school playing 4 sports Soccer, Track+Field, Lacrosse and Competitive Figure Skating. Being from a small town in Upstate NY there wasn’t a whole lot to do and it was freezing all the time so it’s safe to say I love it here in California. I love the outdoors — hiking, camping, being out on the water! 

Hey Hey!

Feel the connection?

let's do this thing!

Do I travel?

When can I expect my pictures back?

Where are you based?


I am currently living in Southern California, but my family is in Northern NY so I am very frequently traveling between these two areas and am proud to say I happily serve both areas. If you know me, you know I LOVE travel, so I am happy to travel beyond these two places to capture your dream session.

Heck yes, I love to travel and would love to help plan your dream destination wedding, or if you just love my work so much that you want me to come to you– you got it! I will come near or far to make your day extra special. My travel fees are as minimal as they come, if you are interested send me a message and we can come up with something perfect for both of us

My normal turnaround time for a session is 1-2 weeks. For weddings/elopements it is 6-8 weeks. Depending on the season and how busy it is, it can vary! I always try to send sneak peaks within 48 hours of the session if possible!


Much love, Esme & Luis

Jada and her 2nd photographer where amazing during our entire event. They were abale to tackle multiple things at once and made the day way easier for us. Jada was super kind, professional and took charge of any unforeseen situations. Photos were fabulous! She truly captured all the best moments that we will cherish forever! We got a few of them the next day!! No time was wasted! Cannot wait for the next big moment in our life to have her capture those moments as well. Would 1000% recommend!

Jada was my first choice and ended up being available for our wedding last minute. She drove about an hour and a half to get to our location. From the moment she walked in, her energy was infectious. She immediately started taking location pictures while I finished getting ready. I normally hate getting my picture taken because I hate the “posing” but she was fantastic at sneaking pictures to catch us very naturally. Even for the more posed pictures, she had so many wonderful tricks to make us smile and look comfortable. Any ideas or requests we had, she listened to and ran with the to make the shot better than we had hoped. She got us our pictures back very quickly and we got access to our full digital portfolio all included in the fee. She and the memories she captured are worth every penny!

We had Jada shoot our wedding in 2021 and we are proud to say we were one of her very first clients. Watching her growth over the years has been so amazing! We knew she was talented after working with her, from her kind personality, and her passion for photography. She made our day so special and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera guiding us with posing and directing us well. We can't wait to have Jada photograph every stage of our life, next up with our incoming baby girl!
