I'm Jessica, the owner of Under the Sun Photography, most days you can catch me chasing my lil' rock picking son on our family's homestead and fixing up a meal that'll stick to more than just your bones. I love everything about my rural South Texas, our heritage and way of life makes it one of the best places to live, raise a family, and practice photography! So sit back and grab a cup of coffee and feel free to scroll through my blog. 

happy trails ! 

I am so excited to be sharing this AMAZING engagement session with y’all today on the blog!

Kailey & Garrett are married!! YAY! I could not have been more excited to witness the marriage between these two love birds. It’s crazy to think that a few months ago we were just hanging out on the ranch, which honestly feels like yesterday if you ask me, when I first met Kailey & Garrett. […]

Kailey & Garrett’s engagement session was absolute perfection! It was slightly chilly but things were heating up for these two love birds at the cattle ranch. Although, I had never met either Kailey or Garrett prior to our session together, we were laughing within minutes of their arrival. The smiles you will see in this […]

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! Day of you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband (I love saying “husband”) away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

"I was so lucky to have Jessica as my photographer. I am absolutely thrilled with my engagement and wedding photos. The first time I spoke to her on the phone, I immediately liked her. It was important to me for me to actually LIKE my photographer because you really do spend a lot of time with them on one of the most important days in your life. The reason it is so important to be comfortable around them is because IT WILL show in your face if you’re not. My husband and I really enjoyed our photoshoots with Jessica. It can be kinda awkward to take a lot of photos but she is so funny and goofy that she kept both of us laughing and relaxed. As for the photos, they are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, these are the nicest pictures anyone has taken of me. The pictures are light, bright, and airy. I feel like a beautiful bride when I look at them. They are so nice in fact, that the company that made my wedding dress, Jasmine Bridal, has featured my photos several times! Jessica is also a really creative person and will find ways to make your photos look amazing. During our wedding reception, I was kinda tired after a LONG day but she had a great idea to do these romantic night time shots. I am SO GLAD I decided to do them. They are absolutely gorgeous. It’s hard to believe it's me and my husband! Like, that’s us?? She made us look SO GOOD! And really, that’s all you want. You want to love your pictures and be happy with them because they are an investment. I know that I’ll look at these photos many years from now and still enjoy them - that’s how happy I am with them."
