2017 The Knot Best of Weddings Winner!

2017 The Knot Best of Weddings Winner!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!  Each year I say that I’m soooo blessed with amazing clients, but it’s true.  Transferring a California based business that was successful for 5 years to Austin, Texas two years ago I was nervous – nervous to essentially start over finding my ideal “Jessica Frey” clients who would trust me, refer me and write referrals!  Prayers were answered, and I was blessed with another year full of amazing weddings that showcased true love and families coming together to celebrate that love. I’m thankful that 9 years ago I had family and friends believe in me and push me to follow a passion and make it into a business.  I’ve had the honor of being a part of one of the most special day of a couple’s life and love that those couples trust me and refer me every year….and write the most amazing reviews for me on TheKnot.com!  This year in particular, I had some incredible reviews from parents and that just means the world to me! Want to see my online TheKnot.com profile and some of the 53 5 Star Reviews? https://www.theknot.com/marketplace/jessica-frey-photography-austin-tx-557211 ******Do you have a friend planning her wedding and think we’d be a great match??

The best Wedding Photographer outfit – LuLaRoe Amelia Dress!

The best Wedding Photographer outfit – LuLaRoe Amelia Dress!

Hey friends! Mark your calendars!! I’m hosting an ONLINE LuLaRoe Party with my friend Beth San Miguel where you can shop with us on Aug 28th @ 7pm CST! We have a special VIP facebook group where Beth will post all of her inventory with a focus on my favorite dress to photograph weddings in – the Amelia!  If you would like to be added to the shopping event please let me know via email/facebook/instagram/text/whatever….OR Join here:https://www.facebook.com/groups/LuLaRoeBethSanMiguelVIP/ About 6 months ago, I found an all black Amelia dress to wear to wedding in and I. Fell. In. Love.   For my wedding photographers out there, this all black one has been amazing and is a size SMALL.  I am 5’6″ and ok internet…after baby, I’m holding steady at 140.  The stretchy-ness of the fabric and POCKETS really hides the last bit of baby bump mush, so 5 stars in my book!   Seriously, it’s a great investment and works wonders with a photo strap across the chest, no cleavage issues, it’s long enough to bend over and work in and did I mention – it has POCKETS.    Do yourself a favor and get one asap!!  Also…I’m a huge fan of the butter leggings…seriously, I tried on my sister-in-laws and they’re just amazing!  I’ve also been told the Madison skirt is just like the Amelia with pockets! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out!! We’ll see you on Sunday for the online shopping!  It will be available for 24 hours so feel free to shop whenever!  Online shopping ‘rules’ below along with a sizing chart and some more information....

Styled Wedding Photography Workshop – Central California

Styled Wedding Photography Workshop – Central California

What a whirlwind month last May was! I feel so blessed and lucky to have had so many great events to photograph and have been anxiously waiting to share more about my 5th styled wedding photography workshop!  I had received several emails over the past year to see if and when I would bring my photography workshop back to California, so with 6 weeks to put it together, I decided May was the perfect month weather wise and I’d be back in Bakersfield, so why not!  After enlisting the help of the amazingly talented Shannon Hough, owner of Shannon Hough Events I knew we’d have an incredible day to present to our attendees – and man, we were all so impressed and overjoyed with the gorgeous ‘wedding’ she pulled together!  Our attendees were spoiled with welcome drinks, snacks, personalized cakes, and a magazine full of tips and information from me.  We spent over 6 hours going through what it takes to be a wedding photographer as I shared so many of my tips and tricks for not only taking photographs but the behind the scenes of running a business!  We talked about, practiced and photographed wedding details, a First Look, a ceremony exit, a horse and carriage ride, an entire reception table, a 3 course meal and our bride and groom in two different outfits!  Whew!  We were all so happily exhausted by the time the day ended and couldn’t wait to eat the amazing meal NV Catering and Franco Baked created for us.  Literally the most delicious meal I’ve had in a very very long time! Thank you again...
