mentoring sessions

I'm Jessie, a wedding photographer + educator based in Virginia Beach, VA. I officially began my photography business in 2015 as a side hustle, and in 2016 I took the plunge to become a full-time creative entrepreneur- and I've enjoyed every minute of it! I built a life I love , and I want to help you create a life you love too - starting with your dream job.

JWP is a place for fellow creatives to find personalized education tailored to them - each session will start off getting to know each other + coffee or tea (on me of course!) - so choose which option best fits your business below, and let's start building your dream together! YAY!

Do you love photography but you're still rocking Auto Mode? Or maybe you're playing with Manual, but you want to understand aperture/shutter speed/ISO better. This 2 hour session is for you!
We'll meet in person and spend one hour helping you master manual. From which setting I nail down first, to how I decide what aperture to use, we'll cover it all! Then we put your new knowledge to use during an actual couples session for the last hour!
