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!
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 am absolutely thrilled with the photos you took for my listing. The composition of each is perfect in my opinion. You made the improvements the owners made to a pretty plain townhouse look sensational. I am meeting with them this evening and I cannot wait to show them your work.
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.

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.
