The Photographer

I believe that the camera is the best thing ever invented. It captures actual moments, memories, emotions and unites forever the person who took the photo with the person in it. Which is why I love it when the clients become my friends.

People say I’m funny… but I know I’m just funny looking.

I have some amazing dance moves. (Um…yeah.. I’m lot better at taking pictures than I am at dancing. ) Photographer_1909


My hair is always a mess at the end of the night, but I’m not the one in the pictures so it’s okay… (Please tell me, it’s okay.)


Hmm… other stuff you should know…
“I am the self proclaimed ruler of a non existent empire!”  I have three multiple personalities- Me, Myself and I.  My favorite sound in the world is hearing my nephew and niece laugh. Jacaranda trees are incredible because they are purple and different… kind of like me, except I’m not purple…just different

And I have a new puppy named Buddy who will bark at you,  but then realize you are awesome.  He’s a Dachshund and he’s getting bigger… I mean longer every day.  Yes. He’s a rescue. He was the runt, had one ear slightly longer than the other so he was left…  They didn’t realize his love was priceless.

Buddy 1

Buddy has a brother and a sister cat. Good luck on seeing the gray one but the black one will greet you at the door and stay throughout our meeting. (Yup.. I’m not superstitious.)


And I miss our baby Nemo who loved everybody.

I love my husband because he gets me and I am thankful for all the love and blessings in my life.

Yup.. that’s me.  You can look me up on Facebook – Jessie Cadenas and follow me and really get to know me.

Want to meet my friends, the other photographers who help me out? Keep Scrolling.

Tyler Wadsworth:  He’s been with me since almost the beginning. I was once a Maid of Honor in a wedding (okay fine… matron of honor… whatever) and he was the guy I called to take pictures while I was busy and thankfully  he stayed. He is my first second photographer. Usually, while I am working with the bride getting ready, he’s having fun with the guys and then we come together and make sure to capture different angles.  He is genius at finding, “light,” and creating artistic images but he can also beat you at any video game.

Stephanie Arellanes: Stephanie came into my life via Email and a cup of coffee. She’s one of those people that loves love and somehow found me online and liked how I enjoyed my work and the relationship I had with my clients. She wanted in. I met with her and ruled her out as a stalker and instead claimed her  as my PBF (Photography Best Friend.) Stephanie works as a second shooter or as an assistant… that is when she is available. She began her own business Save the Date Photography.


Jesse Castorena

Theres’s love story behind the scenes going on… Stephanie and Jesse are a couple.  Jesse works as my assistant usually with Tyler.

Jackie was once my bride. I captured her wedding story and for some reason she wanted to keep hanging out with me. She carries lenses, holds reflectors, takes care of our equipment.

  • Laura LoneyJessie took my engagement and wedding photos. She is an INCREDIBLE photographer! She braved rocks, waterfalls, ponds, AND my family to get great shots. There is not a single moment of my wedding that was not captured by Jessie, and the album is perfect! She was also able to be behind-the-scenes, yet know every single member of my family by the end of the day!

    I would highly recommend you to anyone, because not only are you a great person, but you have the talent to see great photos before they are taken.

    Thanks Jessie!ReplyCancel

  • Courtney ReamsJessie has done several photo shoots for my family and me. She does such a wonderful job making you feel comfortable. She is affordable, very creative and uses all natural lighting. The thing I like the most is that’s she keeps the session very light and we are laughing all the time. Jessie, you ROCK!! I have recommended her to several friends already.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel AngelesMy husband and I had Jessie as our photographer for both our engagement pictures and our wedding. She was MORE than we could ask for. She went out of her way to capture all our emotions and memories on our special day and she jumped through hoops to get the perfect pictures. We loved every picture she took and appreciated the great lengths she went in order to give us the perfect memories we were hoping for. I recommend Jessie to every bride out there looking for the perfect photographer and to every person looking to capture some great memories. Thanks Jessie for all you’re hard work!! I’ve got the pictures to prove it paid off!!
