I cannot say enough amazing things about Jess, owner of Sparrow & Gold, who took engagement photos for my fiancé and I! She is hands down one of the most talented people I have ever had the pleasure of hiring! Our photos were STUNNING. Not only that, but she was so patient and willing to work with us as we had many ideas and special requests for our photoshoot. She was completely open and happy to accommodate anything we wanted, helped us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She was also very prompt in editing and returning our beautiful photos, which we will treasure for a lifetime! Hiring her to capture your special moments will be a decision you won't regret. We can't thank her enough!
Cannot say enough great things about Jess! She is loving, sweet, and you can tell she really cares about you & what she does. We felt so comfortable and natural throughout our engagement session and wedding day thanks to her! No awkwardness (which is difficult if you know my husband 😜) She captured "us" to an absolute T. Definite A++ from the Frigerio's!!
Jess went above and beyond, she was a true professional! She not only captured beautiful moments but she was instrumental in helping me put a timeline together in order to assure things ran smoothly. And you bet she stayed on top of everything and everyone making sure we did not deviate from the plan! She is so fun to work with and makes the experience so enjoyable, you forget you are being photographed at times. Always super punctual and courteous. Her attention to detail is exceptional, which is a reflection of her work. For us that's what set her aside from other photographers, and her bubbly and cheerful personality is just the cherry on top! We were so blessed to have her captured the most important day of our lives. Love ya Jess!
I booked Jess for an engagement portrait session for my best friend and her fiance.
I found Jess through Instagram. She used local hashtags for El Paso and El Paso weddings which made it easy for me to find her and see her work. She was also easy to find through Google, WeddingWire, and theKnot. She is one of the few photographers in the area who has a strong online presence which made me feel more confident and comfortable booking her.
She was easy to communicate with through Facebook , email, and her website. Her site was also easy for me to navigate.
I was drawn to TJ + Natalie’s and Rob + Lindsay’s portrait sessions on her website. My best friend and I were shocked when we saw Rob+Lindsay’s portraits were taken in memorial park because we’ve been there so many times and it never looked as magical in person as their portraits appeared. If you haven’t seen them, you need to. Go. Go enjoy the colors and the magic, then come back to my review.
What made me book her was how dynamic her angles and editing are. It doesn’t look Pinterest perfect, it sets the standard. All of her clients look like they have real and perfect skin. They aren’t overly edited. They just look like they’re having the best aesthetic day of their life. Her editing truly matches her client personalities and is cohesive. Her clients also have varying skin tones and she edits them well. She also gives a 24 hour sneak peek so you can get instant gratification or get to work on your wedding website.
She’s the best!
I love jess. She is so sweet and knows exactly how to get the right pictures. she was very quick to send me my photos and they were so beautiful!
I had the MOST wonderful experience getting to work with Jess! She is such an artist - every image was so beautifully composed in every way. She calmed my fears and insecurities with her sweet personality and total professionalism, and she listened to my vision for the photos and turned it into a reality FAR beyond what I could have imagined! I am so proud of the images she created for me, and so thankful that I got to meet her!
My fiance and I had our engagement pictures taken & we could not be anymore happy with them, they are absolutely perfect! Jess was so wonderful to work with and made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire photo session, even though we had just met minutes before! She took the time to listen to what we envisioned for this special time in our lives. Thanks again, we would recommend you to anyone! :)
Bottom line. Jess is awesome. She surpassed our expectations. Her pictures speak for themselves. So glad we were able to work with her!
1) HER WORK IS AMAZING. 2) she's super friendly and easy going so you don't feel awkward at all when having a photoshoot with her! 3) HER WORK IS AMAZING! Absolutely love our images and as a newbie photographer I strive to be as good as her one day!
