A Melbourne based wedding photographer with a passion for documenting moments and emotions as they unfold in an honest and relaxed way. I feel blessed to be able to work with wonderful couples and document their day. I approach the day in a very natural way, sometimes I’ll give you a small amount of guidance and other times you won’t know I’m there. Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my website!

"Working with Jess was one of the highlights of our wedding. Not only was her photography absolutely sensational, but she was simply a joy to deal with. A beautiful person with a gorgeous nature. She captured every moment of our big day with ease and in terms of communication, was always available to answer any questions we had. I couldn’t recommend Jess enough."

"I cannot recommend Jess highly enough - from the very beginning of the process she was quick to respond to messages, warm, friendly and easy to talk to. She made us feel comfortable and that's exactly what you need with your wedding photographer!
We did 'first look' photo's before our ceremony, where it was just the two of us and Jess - and it just felt like having an old friend share the moment with us. And our photo's show that - Jess you really captured the true emotions of our big day, and we love every single photo.
We received all of our photo's within 3-4 weeks of our wedding, and Jess was quick to send us a few sneak peek's the day after our wedding. Having them all put on a USB has been great to get photo's printed, and access to them all online that we can share with family & friends has been great.
You are an absolute talent and every bride & groom deserve to have you document their special day. Thank you for everything!"

"We cannot speak highly enough of Fern and Stone Photography. Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Jess was so lovely and made us feel 100% comfortable at all times. We enjoyed our photo time so much that it is one of our favourite memories from the day. We got our photos back so quickly too!
Any couple/ family would be lucky to have Jess as their photographer.
Thanks so much Jess for everything!"

"Jess is so amazing!!! We loved meeting her, working with her and having a laugh with her. She was super easy to get along with and we wanted natural, not too 'posy' photos and she delivered that and sooo much more! We can't thank her enough for making our wedding day so special and capturing all of the amazing moments. Thanks, Jess - you're a star!"
LAURA + PAUL
"Jess recently photographed our wedding in Moama.
And I can say from the bottom of my heart I couldn’t thank her enough !! Not only does she have a beautiful personality but so talented!!!
She was so amazing throughout the whole process, she really captured exactly what I wanted! Even my husband who hates having his picture taken loved working with her !! And the shots were amazing! I couldn’t recommend her more! Thanks, Jess x"
KATE + MATT
'We were so fortunate to have Jess capture our wedding day in March. Jess is calm, professional, experienced and a delight to work with - not to mention her photographs are pure magic! From the early communications, Jess made it so easy, which is exactly what you want as a bride. We were so glad to have such a wonderful photographer to take beautiful images that we will treasure forever! '

"Where do you even start with Jess and how awesome she is?
We booked Jess to capture our wedding in December and she by far exceeded our expectations.
From the minute we booked her she was so easy to work with, quick to reply to any questions and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed on the day. There are so many moments that she captured where we (and our guests) didn’t even notice her or her camera. One of the many things we loved about the snaps we’d seen from Jess before we booked her were the natural and candid moments that tell the special story.
We’ve now received our photos (which was a very quick turn around time and again exceeded our expectations) and they are beyond amazing. The quality and range of shots is incredible.
I would hire Jess 1000 times over and cannot recommend her more highly. Do yourself a favour and book her, you definitely won’t be disappointed.
Thank you Jess, you are a star!"
LUKE + JASON
What a legend Jess is - from the pre-meetings, to the wedding day to post wedding, she's been such a pleasure to deal with and EVERYONE has loved our photography. You will not be disappointed, finding a good photographer can be challenging, but Jess listens and she delivers.

Jess was amazing to work with, so easy going and accommodating to our requests and made our day 100% stress free. Looking back through our album is like re-living the whole day again. The quality and quantity of photos is exceptional.
JESS + DAVID
LOVED working with Jess from start to finish. Very professional, great communicator and very organized pre-wedding. She is a cool and calm operator. Loved the finished result of our photos, we have had plenty of compliments on the quality of them. Thanks again Jess, love your work!
YVETTE + RISHI
Jess was the photographer for our wedding in August 2019 and what an amazing job she did. We absolutely loved having her there to share the day with us and we got so many compliments by guests about how lovely she was. On receiving our photos we couldn’t be happier, she has done such a beautiful job and captured our day perfectly. We were not the easiest bride and groom to work with and Jess went above and beyond to ensure we would achieve great results on the day. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Thanks again Jess!

JESS + EUGENE
Jess was our photographer for our wedding in April 2019 and I can’t recommend her enough. Our photos are so beautiful and we could not be happier with the quality of them. Jess captured our day perfectly, particularly those candid and natural moments which are some of our favourites. Jess was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel really comfortable in front of camera. We can’t wait to make our wedding album but know that it will be tough to shortlist the photos because there are so many great ones to choose from!
ANDREW + SOFIA
We loved Jess as our photographer for our wedding. Her photos capturing our special day are perfect and everything that we hoped for. She has got a great eye, and produces beautifully aesthetic photos with a stylish and sophisticated atmosphere.
Jess was always professional in our communication and arranging the job. We highly recommend
