Welcome to the blog the other half of the creative duo behind the Wedding Crasher's Tour, presented by Richmond Weddings, Jessica Maida! Over the past eight years, Jessica has taken her love and passion for storytelling and documenting the details, emotions and events of the wedding day and combined it with her love of travel and exploring. In her own words,
"I've found myself shaped by a strong work ethic, a love for photography, two little ones, a desire to tell stories through art, travel and culture, sewing and crafts, family and friends and the continuous strive to better nurture each of these.
My love for photography began with an early appreciation for the concept behind an image and how it stopped time. As a child, my parent’s wedding album was a very captivating story. It did not have the hundreds of images that today make up a wedding collection but each precious one spoke to me about who they were, how their journey together began and the excitement of where they were heading. To this day, I never grow tired of seeing my Dad with long hippy hair, my Mom’s youthful laugh, their small chapel on the hill ceremony or my Nana’s very chic pointed eye glasses!
The feeling it gave me to peek into their lives helped me understand not only the importance of photography but years later the priceless gift I could give a newlywed couple, their families and future generations. The reward from your investment in photography transcends generations and will only increase in value over time.
The passion for me lies in capturing the emotions and movements of the day – the big and small, the hurried and the slow. They are each important and I enjoy documenting your wedding story in the most candid, authentic and creative way while reflecting everything that makes you both so amazing as a couple!"
