Katherine and her team are incredible artists and amazing humans. I am so lucky to have met her and encountered the YTK magic first hand. Without a doubt the best photographer we’ve ever used. More...

A couple years ago I really wanted some great pictures of my wild and crazy, adorable little boys. Every time we went to a studio, we would come out with one or two good shots to choose from. I heard about Jessica through friends and thought to give her a try. She arrived at our home ready for anything. She was so warm and friendly. Not only that but she had all the positive energy needed to keep my little boys happy and involved in the shoot. She not only listened to what we wanted but brought her own awesome ideas. What and eye she has for that "great shot". She is so talented. We have hired her back every year since! More...

When we started our wedding planning, we knew we didn't want a photographer whose work we had already seen for years - we wanted someone who looks at things with a fresh set of eyes, rather than the same set-up and poses we see every week on wedding blogs. I found Jessica, and after meeting her, was sure she'd be perfect for our wedding.

We were also concerned with finding someone who is just nice to work with. A lot of photographers make them day all about them - and we knew we wanted gorgeous photos but also be able to spend the day with our family and friends. We got both! Jess was so amazing and so nice, she could have just been one of our guests. She kept us on track and on a good timeline that we had worked out with her beforehand, but she did it with grace, rather than being a drill-sergeant (which I have seen before at weddings!)

Because our schedules before the wedding were nuts, she didn't actually meet my husband until the day of our wedding but yet they still clicked perfectly, and worked great. He commented on how easy she was to work with (and now after seeing the photos, he concedes that he is so glad we hired her rather than trust our guests to capture our photos!)

Within a week, we had nearly 100 photos to look at on her blog and WOW -- they are better than we had anticipated! They're gorgeous. They capture so many of the important details we wanted to remember - some of our DIY projects, and the special surprises from family and friends like our bouquets, and a funny "Honeymoon Suite" sign above a treehouse that my husband's family put up. The family photos are natural and beautiful. The ones of our first look are some of my favorites. They brought tears to my eyes.

With all that was going on that day, Jess and her assistant Acey, were able to capture so many memories at the perfect moment. I really can't say enough about Jess and her skills.

I'd hire her again in a heartbeat! You'd be crazy not to book her!

Jessica was absolutely amazing! I was hesitant at first to do a boudoir photoshoot but I must say I love the way the pictures came out. As a mom of a one year old, I haven't felt this beautiful in a long time. Thank you Jessica for reminding me! Not only was she professional; she made it very easy to feel comfortable. I would recommend her to everyone! More...

Where do I start. As both a personal and professional client, I cannot say enough about Jess and her talents. Not only is her eye always on point, her shot style is always warm and friendly. She captures love, heart and passion. Super important when I'm referring wedding clients her way. Jess was a total gem to work with on my family shoots as well; Patient, sweet, attentive and provided all sorts of guidance even when we were all over the place. (Sorry girl!) I light up like a Christmas tree when I know one of my clients books Jessica LeFleur Photography. And when I need to get the family together to capture a special year, I don't even think twice. Fun, fair and fabulous. Jess - she's just that awesome. ♡ More...

Jessica shot our wedding recently. She is an extremely talented and skilled photographer. All the photographs came out excellent and she perfectly captured the day.

As you can imagine, there are a million things to worry about on your wedding day but as far as photography goes, we didn't need to. We spoke prior to the wedding about what we liked and expected. She arrived and without any instruction began capturing the setting, the set up, the guests; everything you could want or need. It was all very professional and she nailed it.

Honestly, 5 out of 5 stars. I would hire her again and would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a wedding photographer. Her work speaks for itself.

Thanks Jessica!

Jessica was amazing to work with and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for professional photos and a photographer who knows how to pull out the best in everyone she photographs. We had family photos done on what turned out to be the coldest day of the season, 45 degrees and not to mention windy. Jessica turned what could have been a disaster into something beautiful and treasurable. She was able to capture the cutest pictures of our 3 year old and our 2 month old despite the crying, runny noses and overall stiffness due to the cold weather. I honestly went away from the session thinking there was no way she could of captured anything salvageable based on the kids behavior, but boy was I surprised just a few days later when she posted a teaser shot. We couldn't be happier with our photos and her work. She is very talented and anyone who works with her won't be disappointed. More...

Hiring Jessica Le Fleur was one of the best decisions we made when it came to planning our wedding, and here's why:

The quality of the pictures:
Her pictures captured the essence of our wedding. Looking at her photos, I could feel the sentiment of every single one. I'm not just saying this because I remember the sentiments and excitement from our wedding. When we were looking at a reference's wedding pictures, her pictures were so awesome that my husband and I wished we had gotten invited to her wedding! Her wedding looked like it was bursting of love and fun, and I wanted our pictures to be like that too...and they are! She really captured the energy of our day in her pictures. Her pictures are gorgeous too. She knows how to use lighting well, both indoor and outdoor. The pictures also looked very organic - no crazy amount of retouching or asking people to do uncomfortable poses.

Her professionalism:
Jess was very easy to work with and incredibly responsive. She really knows what she's doing too; this isn't her first rodeo. In our emails, she asked questions about details that I hadn't thought of, but were really important in making sure photos went really smoothly. She's also a graceful photographer. She managed to move around without disturbing a social interaction. Our guests mentioned that several times that was great and she never seemed intrusive.

A great value:
When we first were looking at wedding photographers and started getting quotes, I got really worried that we were going to have to increase our photography budget by 250% or just rely on people's phone cameras. However, some of our friends had just hired her to photograph their wedding (and they also wrote a stellar review), and after looking at her work from other people's weddings, I knew we had to hire her. We got the photos we wanted without having to break our budget.

Extra bonus!
She's also knows how to do hair! As I was getting ready, I needed a little bit of help to give my hair some extra oomph - I had practiced before and my ladies were helping me, but Jess actually knows how to do hair, and not just follow a couple of blog posts on how to do a wedding side-do. When we asked what she thought, she gracefully stepped in and really helped secure my hair and made it look even better!

Overall, if you're looking for a photographer and you're within a couple of hours of Albany, NY, hire Jessica Le Fleur. Feel free to reach out to me if you want any other details or want to see some of our pictures.

Jessica did an amazing job for our maternity shoot. She was easy to work with, flexible with her schedule, and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She was even able to get our 22 month old son to smile for the camera, and captured some sweet candids between my husband, son and me. The pictures came out beautiful! She's a natural! Highly recommend! More...

Hiring Jessica to take our wedding photos was the best decision we made! We did not have the chance to do an engagement shoot with her unfortunately, but honestly for us that didn't matter much. She showed up on the wedding day and absolutely did an incredible job. Leading up to the big day, we went through a list of all those in our wedding party and families to ensure everyone was included in the portraits. She was ALWAYS available to chat and answered messages quickly. I made a pinterest board of my favorite types of wedding photos--we had several phone calls and numerous emails to make sure everything went smoothly on the day-of. And it absolutely did!

Jessica took photos of everything we wanted and made it all happen. Our photos are beyond beautiful and they are so natural. Nothing looks staged or "pose-y" (we did family portraits but for everything else I prefer candids), but just beautiful, natural, and truly captured us as a couple. I could not have asked for anything more, and we will be cherishing these photos for the rest of our lives. We have beautiful photos of my husband and I, ones with our families, and from the entire event. Honestly, I don't even know how she got so many different angles at our ceremony--it was like she was in two places at once! She was organized and professional throughout, and was present to photograph all our special moments, but most of the time we didn't realize she was there at all! Then, when I saw the photos I was amazed at what she captured--special, fun moments that I am now reliving every time I look through all the gorgeous photos.

Jessica has a true talent and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and everything turned out how we envisioned. She is a true artist, is very caring, and her photos captured our happiness in the most beautiful way. Please don't even think twice--having Jessica as your photographer is the best decision you can make!

Where could we possibly begin... Jessica is pure art, professionalism and excellence. From the moment Jessica arrived we were immediately comfortable. Her trained eye, clear way of direction and incredible artistic inspiration had us moving through a three part shoot with ease and enjoyment. I went from feeling unphotogenic to feeling like a model. Jessica's presence will eliminate the nerves and guess work around your shoot. This shoot went well above and beyond what we had expected. Nicole and I were married nearly six years ago and did not have the summer wedding shots we dreamed of. We contacted Jessica with very little details and simply said, "we need some shots". We wanted some professional and wedding shots for our collection. We thought it would be cool and maybe we would get a great shot. What we did not expect is a tour through the Hudson Valley to create MAGIC! Jessica took us through the town of Hudson and then to the outstanding Flower Blossom Farm where she brought the magic of our wedding day to life! We floated through rows of magnificent flowers as Jessica fought the perfectly calculated golden lights of sunset. Jessica gave us more than we could have ever asked for and we are so touched to have relived this incurable moment together. The photos are breathtaking, inspired and technically perfect. She listed to my dream and made it better than I could have imagined. We cannot wait to work together again!!! Thank you! More...

Jessica has an eye for detail and could not have picked a more beautiful fall setting for our family portraits. She really did a wonderful job with two of the three kids being very difficult to photograph. She also provided a ton of great prep advice and gave us a ton of info on quality labs to get the best quality prints. We would highly recommend Jessica! More...

Jessica did a wonderful job with our family. In addition to a family photo session, she also did my son’s senior pictures. She made sure everyone felt comfortable in front of the camera which made for some great photos! You know the photo session was a success when the kids had fun!! Jessica returns photos in a timely manner. Overall an excellent experience. I would recommend her to anyone in the area!! More...

Jessica is great with kids! She was very patient with our cranky two year old and still managed to capture a few with him smiling. We have used her services a few times now and are planning to have her shoot our wedding in the spring! I always recommend her to friends and family. More...

We were thrilled with Jessica's work. We loved her pictures, and really felt comfortable giving little guidance on the photography, and just wanted her to do her thing as an artist. We were not disappointed. The pictures were unique and heartfelt. During our wedding, we never noticed her, because she was so discrete as she went around and captured her amazing shots. Great to work with, great results. More...

Jessica shot a session with my fiance and I to celebrate our engagement this past April. Jessica, not only was happy, nice, and interested in us and our lives, but she was very confident in her work, had GREAT ideas, and was completely flexible.
She allowed us to incorporate things into the photos that we wanted, though was very helpful with even (what seemed at the time to be) the little things, which when we reviewed the photos were highly advantageous.
She's fun, very easy to get along with, and produces far beyond just quality work. Her photos were a collection that we were proud of, and still excitedly share and show today, 5 months later.

Honestly, at first I didn't think photography was that important, so when my friend insisted I check Jess out, it was a pretty easy decision. Now, I look back at my pictures, how easy Jess made everything (you didn't even realize that she was there), that I'm 100% sure we made the best decision and probably easiest one of the entire wedding process. Not only are our pictures amazing, but the turn around was less than a month. Thank you notes are already sent, and the next question is try choosing the best ones. More...

Photos are EXTREMELY important in my life! I am grateful to have worked with Jessica twice so far and look forward to working with her in the future. Recently, she took photos of my family and did a beautiful job. She has a great personality that lends itself to compatibility, professionalism, and ease. She handled our puppies beautifully and captured some great moments. Photos last a lifetime and I'm so glad Jessica was our photographer. I cannot wait to add our newest photos to the already existing Jessica Le Fleur photos that are flooded throughout my home.
Excellent photographer that I would HIGHLY recommend!

Jessicca did our wedding two years ago and the photos were excellent. Two years later my parents wanted photos done of our whole family. I obviously suggested Jessica after the amazing job she did for our wedding. The pictures came out great. She was able to photograph our large family of 8 as well as two dogs. We will definitely continue to use Jessica for any photo needs in the future. More...
