Who’s That Girl? It’s Jess!
Hello! My name is Jessica Castellano! I am a 24-year-old photographer from the Orange County area! I recently graduated from California Baptist University, where I majored in Communications and Photography. I became a photographer so that people can see how truly beautiful they are!
When I was little, I would always beg my mother to let me use her camera to photograph my sister's soccer games, because in my mind, I already captured the perfect image, and wanted to formalize it so that others could see it. In high school I took a photography course, and I fell in love with it! I continued to take an AP photography course while at school, and that was when I realized I have a true passion for photography. In 2013, I won best visual artist for my graduating class, and that fueled my passion. Halfway through my freshman year in college, I decided to declare a double major in order to improve my photography skills! I have had so much fun learning different techniques.
A few fun facts about me: Jessica Day from New Girl is actually me. I am obsessed with The Legend of Zelda! I will probably make some video game references during your engagment photos (I am so sorry if you do not understand them)! The Office is my favorite show of all time, and I will probably be quoting the show under my breath. I am 0% funny, or so my sister and fiance say, so you may get some pretty bad dad jokes thrown at you here and there! I am always down for food, tacos are my favorite! While I will not raid your dessert table, if you have ice cream I will be in the corner eating all of it! I am engaged to the love of my life, Cody Jackson (please no Jesse Jackson jokes, haha). Above are a few photos from our engagement session (done by the amazing Paigecreative)! He loves huskies and all puppers, so if you want to chat about dogs, I am now an extreme dog person! I am always down for a good time, and I know like two of the Fortnite dances, so come meet me on the dance floor!
I cannot wait to work with you! I will make sure your day is absolutely breathtaking and memorable!
