As a 5-time award-winning builder with the Home Builders Association, Grey Design Build relies on high-value architectural photography for the submission process. Jess’ photography was instrumental in the last two winning projects, and she can now count herself as an award-winning photographer. These will likely be the first of many.
To be talented and easy to work with in this business are generally mutually exclusive; she’s an exception to that rule. I heartily recommend her services!
I listed a home well over the last home that sold in the same neighborhood. I told Jessica that we needed to show the value through the pictures and she worked over 4 hours photographing anything I asked of her. The first people made a full price offer. When they mentioned the house, their agent asked, “Why do you want to see a home in that neighborhood”, the client responded “HAVE YOU SEEN THE PICTURES?” There were 6 offers and I know a good part of it can be attributed to the professional photos. Thank you again to Jessica.
I have worked with Jessica Blackwell for photography on numerous high-end properties – from new construction to historic houses. As a former advertising agency creative director, I have worked on hundreds of shoots with many outstanding commercial photographers. Jess’ approach is identical to that of a studio shoot – but in unpredictable environments where every shoot has unique challenges. She brings a full compliment of lighting and equipment, backed with the expertise to compose, light, shoot and edit images at an incredibly high level. In an era of stripped-down HDR edited shoots, it’s refreshing to work with a photographer who brings an “old school” approach to preparation, lighting and composition combined with today’s digital technology. Jessica delivers that ideal combination.

Years ago, I worked as an in-house photographer at the Whitney Museum. I’ve seen some photos here and there but I just want to say that I am so extremely blown away by the brilliant, beautiful, well lit, colorful, terrifically-angled, professional photographs Jess took at my listing. What a pleasure!
Jessica is extremely talented when it comes to accentuating features of the property she is shooting. She is detailed and thoughtful of her work making sure that the home is properly presented. I trusted her with every single one of my clients because she is the ultimate professional. She comes prepared, takes her time and focuses on quality and every single one of my clients have loved the finish product. Jessica made my job easier because she delivers great photos which in turn makes it easy for me to market and successfully sell my listings. The best part of Jessica is that she is a pleasure to work with and a kind soul.
