Testimonials

Thank you to all my sweet clients who trust me with their special moments!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jess for our Sayulita wedding at Villa Amor. When doing our research, we originally contacted another photographer who was booked for our date. She recommended Jess, and I’m so thankful she did. Jess is highly respected in the Sayulita wedding community. Every vendor I worked with sang Jess’s praises when I said we were working with her. Jess did “engagement photos” for us in town, welcome party photos, and our wedding photos. Leading up to our wedding, Jess responded to all of my questions quickly. She even came to meet us on the day we got in to Sayulita just to meet and say “hi”. She was kind, professional, and so great to work with. Our pictures look like us. Our poses are natural, our smiles are genuine, and the moments she captured are so reflective of us as a couple. I would recommended Jess to anyone looking for a professional photographer!

Jess was a wonderful photographer to work with on our wedding day. Her professional, friendly demeanour made everything run smoothly while having lots of fun! Reviewing the photos was like reliving the day. Jess expertly caught so many soft, romantic and emotional shots of us, our family and guest at the ceremony. I highly recommend Jess and look forward to an anniversary session with her when we return to Sayulita!

Jess is an amazing photographer. I booked her for our couples session during a recent visit to Sayulita. Her style is what initially stood out to me - very soft and romantic. She was such a pleasure to work, too. She was super sweet and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I love all the photos she took of us. Could not recommend her enough!

If you are looking at these reviews and wondering if you should use Jess as your photographer stop right now and just do it! She was able to capture the most amazing photos of us because she made us feel so comfortable and at ease the entire time. She knew all the best spots and even the best times of day (the lighting in the photos was seriously perfection). There was a hurricane about to come when we arrived so Jess was able to reschedule to make it work and we are so grateful for that! Highly highly recommend she is the best!

Alex & I are so happy that we found Jess to take our wedding photos. We loved how organized she was, that she was always communicating with us throughout the months leading up to our wedding and came to meet us before hand! Aside from our stunning photos, Jess made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Even my mom who takes bad photos since she talks during the photos. We highly recommend Jess.

My boyfriend and I booked a mini-shoot with Jess for when we were visiting Sayulita. They are by far the best photos of us together. Her photos are amazing!. So glad we decided to do it. I highly recommend her!
— Tami
We had a great experience working with Jess and are so happy that we found her. She worked magic on us even though I was having a bad hair day and my novio was nervous! Not only is she extremely talented, she also was fun and easy to work. Our smiles in all the pictures are genuine because she made us feel relaxed and always made us laugh. We highly recommend her!

My boyfriend and I were on vacation in Sayulita. He’s not much of a photo taker so I had the idea to get some good photos all at once rather than me trying to self timer photos everywhere we went. I found Jess on Instagram and fell in love with her style. I emailed her and she was super quick to respond with ideas + locations. I let her know that my boyfriend and I aren’t the type that take a ton of photos and we can be quite awkward in front of a camera. Needless to say, she worked her magic and made it look like we knew what we were doing in front of a camera. Jess delivered us photos in a super timely manner. Overall I couldn’t be happier with the process. If we ever find ourselves in Mexico again I would love to book another session.

I love Jessica’s work, she quickly understood what I was looking for in the final photos and delivered great results. She was open to my ideas, flexible and committed to my satisfaction with her work. Definitely will use her services again!

We had a wonderful experience working with Jess and I am so glad I found her. From my experience working in the bridal industry, I can see that she is incredibly talented, has great experience developing a rapport with couples and is very flexible and easy to work with. We decided to go with Jess instead of the photographer “required” by our resort and we are so glad we did. I would highly recommend using Jess Leigh to capture your special memories!

Jess photographed our wedding at Iberostar Playa Mita. She was AMAZING. We absolutely love every single one of our photos. She is just super nice and so easy to get along with! We loved that she made us feel so comfortable, which allowed us to be ourselves, and allowed her to capture those precious moments that we will look back on for many years to come. She was also very speedy at editing and delivering our photos, which was such a nice surprise, since we could hardly wait to see them! We can’t thank you enough Jess! If we are ever in your area again we will definitely be contacting you for our future photography needs!

My fiance and I did an engagement shoot with Jess on a recent trip to Sayulita and it was such a great experience! The shoot was really fun; she made us feel super relaxed throughout. And best of all the photos came out absolutely beautiful. Highly recommended!!

My fiance and I were very lucky to have found Jess on Yelp a few weeks before our trip to Sayulita. As soon as we saw her website, we knew we wanted her to take our engagement photos. Jess responded quickly to our request and we immediately began discussing the session. She was very helpful, she advised us on clothing selection, gave us tips about getting around Sayulita and scouted awesome locations for our session! She proposed her idea of a short hike through the jungle that would lead us to a beautiful secluded beach, we agreed and it was so worth it! We arrived to the beach at sunset and it was spectacular. The pictures turned out amazing and were beyond our expectations. She delivered the pictures in a timely manner and made sure we were happy with the results. I would love to work with her again. Highly recommended!

Amazing pictures of our two ACTIVE boys! They were 3 and 1 year olds at the time and Jess was so patient to get those hugs and smiles that will hang on our walls forever! Thank you!!!
— Elizabeth
Jess was AMAZING! She made us feel like we’d known her forever... we were instantly comfortable and at ease. She even helped get my poor husband some Pedialyte when he wasn’t feeling good! Jess was incredible and made our wedding day absolutely special. Way above and beyond! FIVE STARS all the way!!!! Thanks Jess!!!

My fiance and I stumbled across Jessica’s Instagram profile when looking for a photographer in Sayulita to take engagement photos. To say the least, we had an amazing experience working with her! A few reasons why:
- COMMUNICATION WAS EXCELLENT. We were visiting Sayulita during their rainy season which made every day unpredictable, especially when trying to take photos on a clear day with good lighting. She was great about communicating with us on WhatsApp when we had to reschedule due to weather and was super accommodating when finding another date/time that worked with our trip.
- PROFESSIONAL. Great at directing my fiance and I with different poses (which can be super awkward) and outfit suggestions. We also really didn’t want to take cheesy shots and she totally got it. She also knows the city really well and planned a route to several cute backdrops/landmarks while also taking our lead on fun shots we wanted to do.
- FUN! Jessica moved to Mexico a few years ago and you can feel how much she loves Sayulita. It was just fun roaming the city with her and talking about her experience being an ex-pat. She was so warm and friendly off the bat and had us laughing through our entire shoot.
The pictures turned out amazing. If you have a chance to work with her, take it!
Thank you again Jessica!
