Every wedding is different and every couple is unique. I customize my coverage to highlight the special meaning that is involved in your love story.  Together we will work on ensuring every little detail is covered and every emotion is captured.


I will provide you with tips and suggestions to help ensure your wedding photos will look their best.  From candids that narrative the story of your day to formal portraits of you both and your families, I will easily help to guide you both through a fun and stress free process that provides you with beautiful photos of your wedding day. 

A Little More About Jess Kristen


Hello!! I'm Jess the owner and photographer behind Blue Buttercup Wedding Photography!  When I'm not photographing events or puppies, I'm usually working from home either editing images or painting portraits.

  1. I graduated from the USC School of Cinema-Television in May 2004 and photographed my first wedding August 4, 2006. In the past 13 years I have photographed over 200+ weddings and love every minute!

  2. I'm a dedicated wife and dog mama to two adorable mini Aussies, Marley & Django (featured in the lower left image).  I married my husband in April 2016 and together we bring out the best in each other

  3. I'm a lover of Love and all things that make us happy and feel good. It is my honest pursuit in this life to preserve the moments and images that bring smiles to faces and loving feelings to hearts.  I am always honored to help celebrate and capture the story of two true lovebirds on their special day <3

  4. I spend every Friday morning photographing puppies for the Oregon Dog Rescue through my Pet Photography business:

  5. I am fully committed to my clients and serving their needs. As such, I make sure to book no more than 12 weddings per year, no more than 1 per month to ensure I have the time and energy to fully devote myself to every one of my couples, preparing for their event and completing the editing of all photos thereafter.  Please contact me sooner than later if you think you may be interested in my services to ensure I'm still available!
