about us

The truth is, we hate these sections. We feel pretentious talking about ourselves, so let's break it down: 

We are Jessica and Heather and we love love. Whether your wedding is traditional or unorthodox, you can ensure that The Honest Love will capture every aspect of your day in a pure, authentic light.  Not every wedding will look the same, because just like your love, your wedding is unique to you. We feel a connection to our couples and love to put them at ease. With laid-back, but professional personalities, you will feel like old friends of yours are at your side, documenting your story. 

When you book The Honest Love to photograph your wedding day, we will be available to answer any questions throughout the planning process. We are happy to assist with vendor referrals, timeline tweaking, and much more.




Our Services



A southern tradition that takes place a month or so before the wedding, bridal portraits are an opportunity to capture gorgeous images of the bride in her gown. We suggest booking your wedding hair run-through and bridal portrait session on the same day.


An engagement session may be the first time we meet. This a great time for us to get to know each other and get you comfortable in front of our camera. We think it is so important to have this time to learn more about you, so we offer an engagement session complimentary when you book your wedding with us.


Celebrate the anniversary of your 1st year of marriage with the photographers who were with you your entire wedding day.

Inquire about how you can receive a complimentary 1st anniversary session when you book your wedding date.

bridal boudoir

The perfect gift for your future husband or wife. No, we are not opposed to "dude"oir.  Whether your style is sexy, romantic, or bombshell, we can provide a one-of-a-kind wedding day gift for your Mr. or Mrs.


Our wedding coverage begins at $3000. We custom edit and deliver your high-resolution images via  online gallery to view, download and share with family and friends. After you've received your online gallery, we will be sending you a USB drive with your photos and a print release. 


The morning after your wedding day, it is sinking in that you are now married. We would love to document the sweet laughter and snuggles after you wake up. Once you are ready, text us your coffee order and stay in bed. 

If you are planning a post-wedding brunch, we are available to document that as well.
