Hello ! I'm Jessica,

Photography has been a passion of mine for 10 years now and California has been my home now for 7 years. It's a land of beauty, wonder and diversity. Growing my business here has been an amazing and cultural experience. The inspiration never ends. My roots come from South America. I was raised in Florida where I studied and refined my photography at The University of Central Florida where I received a Bachelors in Photographic Technologies. 

My style is modern, romantic and authentic. Moments are candid using editorial and documentary techniques. Colors are vibrant with a mix of soft and moody lighting. All work on my website reflects real life couples I work with, no styled shoots. My images are not retouched or composited. They are processed for minor color/exposure/crop corrections. 

My approach is natural, I react to emotions, actions and the vibe of what is around me. With nearly a decade of experience in wedding and fashion photography I feel confident in capturing your natural beauty organically. It's a huge honor to be capturing all these special moments. When you hire me you'll not only get all the experience but a lot of care as well. Majority of my work is word of mouth. Many clients become recurring, hiring me after their celebrations for family, business and personal sessions. I take on a limited amount of weddings per year to provide an intimate and eased experience for my clients. 














I have a range of packages that come with Me as your main shooter and options with a second photographer.

Wedding packages range between 2-4k for Southern California. Destination packages start at 4-6k. Intimate packages 60 guest or less start at $300/hr. For a list and more information use the contact page below.

On a budget? Not a problem. Ask for a custom quote!

Let's get to know each other! I am available for coffee dates in LA or phone/skype meetings for those a little further away. 


My recommendation is when your venue and date are confirmed as weekend availability is limited.

Anyone working under me as a second shooter will be a professional photographer with over 2 years experience in the industry. I have a group of photographers that have been working with me now for 2-4 years. 

An private online gallery is given to every client where you can download high resolution digital images. A sneak-peak is given within 7-10 days of your wedding of around 100 highlight moments. Your final gallery of images are given within 30-90 days. This site remains live for a year.

Use the form below on the site to reach out. I'll get back to you and set a date to meet in person or chat over the phone/facetime. We can get to know each other as well as address any questions/concerns to make sure we are a good fit. A signed contract and 50% non refundable retainer gets your date booked.

With so many photographers available, I didn't know where to begin. My wife and I are so happy that we found Jessica. She was very flexible, punctual, and most important made us feel comfortable. Jessica's passion for photography is contagious and is visible through her work. She is definitely worth your consideration.

Jessica is a phenomenal photographer. I myself am in the wedding industry and took finding a photographer with serious talent as well as a fun vibe very seriously. Her photos are not only gorgeous, they truly capture the range of feelings and emotions of the day which is hard to do. She was extremely professional, while also being a joy to have as part of the biggest party of our lives. I cannot stress enough her talent, creativity, and ability to adapt to the vibe of a couple. We LOVE Jessica!!

Here are, in no particular order, the reasons you should already be booking Jessica Castro for your wedding:
1) You want a pro. Jessica's work ( is top-notch, phenomenal, and memorable, and she was super-responsive to any of the questions or requests we had. 
2) You want to be blown away. We took a look at our wedding photos once they came back to us and could hardly believe that it was OUR wedding. It's hard to fully put into words, but just capturing a moment is one thing - what Jessica does with her photos is overwhelmingly breathtaking and beautiful. 
3) You want to work with a REAL person. It's easy to get caught up in the minutiae and the (sometimes) unnecessary complexity of planning a wedding, but working with someone as passionate and authentic about her craft as Jessica was such a breath of fresh air.

Jessica was extremely friendly, kind and on her game! I was surprised how quickly she was taking photos and saying she got the shot and after seeing them, she is a real professional! Every photo she picked out and sent looked incredible, the faces, the light, everything. I recommend her highly to anyone on their special day! Thank you again Jessica! So glad we got to meet and you captured our beach wedding!

Josh, 2016.

Working with Jessica for our wedding was an absolute pleasure. .. She has a gift for capturing the exact perfect moment and making everyone look amazing! We really wanted a more candid and natural feel to our photos and Jessica delivered like a superstar.

She was also professional every step of the way. There were always clear communications about everything like dates, the editing process, etc. She was never late for anything and even delivered our finished photos earlier than promised. Our photos were beautifully edited and easy to access through the Pixieset service that she uses.

In closing I cannot overstate what a privilege it was to work with Jessica. We felt so comfortable and taken care of, it was like having a friend there taking our pictures instead of just a hired photographer. She is an absolute PRO and I would not hesitate to recommend her to ANYONE who needs an event photographer!

Chris , 2015.

Jessica was incredible to work with. The photographs were top notch, and everyone agreed: she is professional and fun. She adapts to unique circumstances quickly and effectively, and really helped make this day stress-free. 

Maggie , 2016.

I can't say enough great things about Jessica! She is very professional and easy to work with! I love that she shares sneak previews from photo shoots and events fairly soon after the shoot. I have some married friends who've had to wait months just to see one single photo from their wedding!

Jessica , 2015.

We chose Jessica Castro to do our engagement shoot and I will be happy about that decision for the rest of my life. I probably sent her 30 or more emails during the planning process and she was always helpful and prompt in her response. She helped pick out the location and even provided clothing advice. On the day of the shoot, we arrived early and she was already there ready to go. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and provided plenty of direction. She even brought her own blanket to the beach for us to sit on in the photos. Our photos were ready for viewing in the online gallery the very next day. I would definitely recommend her to a friend. A true sweetheart and a pleasure to work with. Her photos will hang in our home for a very long time.

Ghazal , 2015.

Jessica's greatest value (besides her lovely photographic skills) is that she makes all her subjects feel SO COMFORTABLE. We found it easy to be ourselves and have fun, and that shone through in the pictures she captured. We loved her!

Marlena , 2015.

Jessica is fantastic!!! I was looking for a photojournalist with a strong artist eye..and that's what Jessica was! She has an artistic eye and the ability to capture moments in such an artistic and realistic way! We really enjoyed working with Jessica, all the family raved about how amazing our day was documented and we are so happy we have Jesaica on our team! I would love to hire her again for our other events and really looking forward to work with Jessica again. Thank you for being part of our big day and documenting our day so beautifully.

LeAna , 2015.

Jessica is amazing! She truly captured the essence of our wedding. All photos came out so dreamy and romantic. She has really great style. On top of everything else, she is such a sweet and genuinely nice person. I wouldn't change anything about our experience.

Melissa , 2015.

Jessica has an amazing style to her photography and absolutely wonderful to work with. She met with us several times and even came to our venue 2-hours away from Los Angeles (where we are both based) to come check out the venue and make sure she has her ducks in a row. It's always worth spending the extra $$$ because after the wedding -- all you have left are the photos to cherish as memories. I highly recommend her to anyone out there looking for a fantastic photographer.
