Jessica Francis Photography offers golden hour portrait sessions with colorful, rich, & bright imagery. Specializing in Couples & Families; striving to provide YOU with an effortless experience & truly lasting memories. Based in Ventura County, CA (between Thousand Oaks & Santa Barbara, CA).
Passionately serving adventurous couples & silly families by creating & documenting memories between Thousand Oaks & Santa Barbara, CA. We just moved from San Diego to Naval Base Ventura County as my husband changes military duty stations. My passion for photography took over in 2014 when I realized just how important photos were. My husband went away for his first deployment on a ship & with little to no communication for several months at a time, photos of him were all I had to help keep our memories alive. It became important to me to make sure the moment we were finally reconnected was captured. I could only imagine the impact this could have on an even greater scale for myself & others...

“Incredible customer service!! Jess is one of the friendliest and most down to earth photographers my girlfriend and I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. From setting up the appointment for the shoot, to getting the final product and everything in between, she made the process SO easy! Jess is extremely detail oriented and will bend over backwards to ensure you get the best quality product. We had such a blast when she put on music for us to dance to while capturing us in our element. I absolutely love the way they came out! I HIGHLY recommend you book her ASAP if you want the best photos and an experience that'll last a lifetime!”
“Jessica is such an amazing photographer! She took family photos for us- which included my baby boy (11 months). She was not only very professional but enthusiastic, very kind, and hilarious. The day of our pictures, she was very prepared! We got there on time and she was already set up and ready to go. She brought blankets for the pictures and even a squeaky toy to get my baby’s attention! She even brought a clothes changing area, which was clutch! Her positive energy was contagious, and I could even tell my husband was having a good time. You could tell she loves what she does and cares so much about creating memories for her clients. I will definitely work with her in the future and recommend you do too!”
“This girl is 🔥 y’all!! She took my husband and I’s engagement photos five years ago so when we moved back to the area, I reached out to schedule my family photos- I’m obsessed!!! She is so patient and talented and worked so well with my boys (who are kinda wild lol) She is absolutely a 10/10!”
“Jessica is an amazing photographer that gave me and my kids wonderful pictures in a time where we needed it the most. She worked well with my 4-year-old, who never sits still, and highlighted the happiness and playfulness of our family perfectly. Her amazing personality and creativity created an amazing memory that we can put on our walls. Not only did she give me beautiful pictures, but she gave my family and I a bonding experience that we will treasure for years to come. The beautiful and peaceful location and her uses of props really took the pictures to the next level. Jessica gave us this amazing experience that will never be forgotten and captured it in the most stunning pictures.”
“I found Jess through Instagram hashtags when looking for a photographer while my husband and I were (back) in CA for our 8th anniversary. Jess truly paid attention to what I was asking for and even compiled some example concepts before we even packed our bags to head out. I specifically had ONE pose in my head, and she executed brilliantly; that’s my showpiece pic and I will treasure it for a lifetime!”
“Jessica is absolutely amazing at what she does! It was the best experience I’ve ever had. She made me feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin which is very hard. She has an amazing personality as well! I will always have her as my Photographer for the rest of my life! You will never be disappointed when you hire her for your special photos.”
