Jessica made the big move to Toronto from her home in England at the beginning of 2018 to pursue her dream of becoming a professional photographer. Travelling around Europe for 5 years as a flight attendant, she gained an impressive amount of experience in the hospitality industry, and discovered her love for working with people. Since living in Toronto she has found her passion for weddings in particular, working as a wedding photographer over the summer of 2018. Jessica also has a flare for plant based baking and is passionate about leading a sustainable lifestyle. She believes ‘pop-up’ occasions could even be one way of reducing your carbon footprint! Growing up in a family of artists and musicians, Jessica brings her creative flare to Joyously Inclusive, making sure those special moments are captured, and the smallest details are always thought of.
