Jessica Tallman Photography | What a Wedding Season!

What a Wedding Season!

July 14, 2016  •  2 Comments

It's barely July and that means wedding season is in full swing.  Some of you have asked what I've been up to since starting my photography journey, so I thought I'd share one field that I'm working in: WEDDINGS!  This year I have had the opportunity to develop my photography skills as a "second shooter," working alongside some amazing wedding photographers, most notably Lisa Richmond of Sunflower Field Photography.  Perhaps the thing I like most about this genre of photography (other than working with Lisa, and the dynamite chicken cordon bleu they serve at the Sequoia Mansion in Placerville) is that I get to capture cherished moments from a couple's big day.  It's a lot of responsibility, but it's also an incredibly rewarding experience to be able to use my talents to provide a lasting memory of a very important life event.    


We don't know how important photography is until a couple sees their images for the first time...maybe its a tender smile during the father-daughter dance, a wipe of a tear from the eye during the vows, a loving gaze during a private moment between bride and groom, a warm embrace from an old friend, or the bridal party whooping it up on the dance floor.  All these moments matter, and it's so wonderful that we have a means of "freezing" it in time with the click of a shutter.  With photography, a moment becomes an heirloom.


More weddings are on the books for summer and fall, and I can't wait to photograph them all!  HUGE thanks to Lisa for including me in the memories and the fun - and teaching me more than a thing or two about running a successful photography business along the way.  The learning experience has been unreal.  And thanks to Ming Yang of Diamond One Photography for the incredible experience at Kellie and Keiko's Grass Valley wedding.  Congratulations to Laura, Matt, Hayle, Mason, Kellie, Keiko, Anna, Justin, Nicole, Tom, Leslie, John, Amanda, and Chris for allowing me to participate in your wedding day - here's to a lifetime of pure happiness!


Take a peek below to see some of the beautiful weddings I have photographed this year.  


I'm currently booking Jessica Tallman weddings for 2017 - if you or someone you know is in need of a photographer with a natural and authentic touch, please drop me a line at!  Please also check out the work of my fellow photographers in the Placerville (Lisa Richmond Photography) and Sacramento (Diamond One Photography) area - their work is absolutely stunning.  


Love & Happiness,
