Welcome

Hey! Time is a non-renewable and precious resource and you taking the time to be here means more than you know! To the clients who have trusted us and to those we have yet to work with, it is always an honour to capture important moments in life together- forever.

I began taking pictures professionally 14 years ago when I started working at the Lloydminster Source (now Meridian Source) newspaper. I didn't realize then how much I loved time behind the camera. It wasn't long before I realized I had a passion for pictures and a desire to meet new people. That first summer I went crazy... Asking questions and self teaching the basics of posing, lighting, lenses, editing and all things DSLR cameras. A close friend asked me to be a backup photographer for her wedding and the rest is, as they say, history. The last decade has been filled with capturing over 280 weddings, in 5 different countries and loads of laughs in canola fields, pig pens, horse pastures, oceans and puddles. From dodging traffic on bridges to making crazy noises, I'll do about anything to try obtain that perfect shot.

The number of times I've said, "I don't know if we can go there... If you're up for it, so am I!" is more than I'd like to admit, but I've never been one to shy away from an adventure. I have a Master's degree in Education, but I am a life-long student at heart and was fortunate enough to teach photography at Holy Rosary High School for over 6 years.
 
I am certainly known for being a little excitable, cracking jokes and saying, "Okay, just a couple more," which in photography is code for a hundred before we wrap a session. The relationships and memories have fuelled my fire to deliver your dream pictures! Let's have fun, let's create and let's freeze those moments in time you never want to forget.
-Hugs, Jessie

Behind the Cameras

Introducing, your Third Wheels

Lead Photographer and Professional Third Wheel

Jessie Mann

Jessie is known for excitedly explaining, "Don't move!" over hundred times a session and can out eat any man at a wedding supper. She has been bitten on the bum by a giant pig during a shoot and once fell down a raven in a snow storm for a perfect shot. Don't worry, she was okay and she did get her shot. Jessie has shot nearly 300 weddings in 5 countries.

Second Shooter and Creative Mastermind

Becky Grassl

Beck has been with us for six years and has photographed over 30 weddings. She is the creative mastermind always thinking of ways to make your photos uniquely original. She is beyond terrified of mice and heights and once she encountered both at the same time on a trestle bridge. She too survived but don't ask her about it.

Second Shooter and Technological Whiz

Taylor Weaver

Taylor is new to our team but has already shot nearly ten weddings. He is the Editor of the Meridian Source and spent a year traveling and shooting on a cruise ship traveling the world. I mean... can you imagine? He knows a camera better than anyone and is constantly trying to grab that shot that makes Jessie say, "I think I even like yours better."
