welcome! i'm jess sinatra

I'm a Boston-based wedding photographer

Before you ask, no I am not related to Frank Sinatra (that I know of). I founded Jess Sinatra Photography in 2018 after spending years honing my craft alongside some of New England's finest photographers. Photography has always been a passion of mine—I was the friend everyone turned to for capturing special moments. I shot my first wedding in 2008 and was immediately hooked! Originally, I didn't plan to pursue photography full time. As a veterinary technician, I loved every moment of my work. However, my heart yearned for a career that allowed me to be artistic and expressive. In 2013, I made the leap and turned my passion into my full-time job, moving from Buffalo, NY to the North Shore of Massachusetts. (Yes, I am a Buffalo Bills fan! Please don't hold that against me).

and unique moments

Hey there, I'm mike young

the second half of the dream team

Primarily, I serve as a second photographer, assistant, and dog wrangler during engagement shoots. I also manage Insta stories and act as Jess' personal chauffeur whenever she needs to head into the city or make a Trader Joe's run.

Growing up in New Hampshire, I was immersed in sports, both playing and watching. My passion eventually shifted to visual storytelling, leading me to earn a Bachelor's degree in Film & TV Production in 2010. Shortly after, I began editing wedding videos and have been captivated by it ever since. I love capturing all the moments and sound bites from a wedding day to piece together a couple's story on video.

My passion for sports remains strong! In my free time, I enjoy playing volleyball, softball, golf, and bowling. I also love relaxing at home, cheering on the Celtics or Patriots with a Dunkin' iced coffee, and indulging in Taco Bell for Fourth Meal.

As a wedding photographer, my mission goes beyond taking beautiful pictures. It's about creating an experience where you feel relaxed, confident, and truly yourselves. I strive to blend into the background, capturing the genuine emotions and unscripted moments that make your wedding day uniquely yours. My photography style is classic and timeless, focusing on natural light and authentic moments. I believe that the best photos are those that capture genuine emotions and the unique connections between people. My goal is to create images that not only look beautiful but also tell a story—your story. Each wedding is a unique story, and my goal is to tell that story through my lens. From the joyous laughter of the bridal party to the tender moments shared between the couple, I aim to capture the essence of your love in every photograph. My unobtrusive style allows me to document the day as it naturally unfolds, ensuring that the true spirit of your wedding is preserved. With years of experience and hundreds of weddings captured, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to your wedding day. You can trust that I will handle every detail with professionalism and care.
