Would you truly remember all of the special moments spent with your loved ones if it wasn't for the photographs taken at those exact times? I can't tell you how many times I've went through old pictures from my childhood and reminisced about how beautiful my mother was before she lost her life in this physical world. Even though she’s not here to tell me about her life when she was my age, I can look back at photo albums and it’s almost as if I can hear her contagious laughter. The photos allow me to witness all the incredible times she’s had. Life is such a precious gift, and at the end of the day, memories are all we are left with.
My name is Jessica Alventosa and this is why I'm so passionate about photography. I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York but my adventurous spirit led me to move to Tucson, Arizona where I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Photography from The University of Arizona. I devoted four years of my life to develop my craft and have learned from some of the most renowned photographers, artists and professors, which I'm so grateful for. They taught me how photography is a vehicle of preservation; everything from nature to humans and our special relationships with one another need to be preserved forever. I will always push myself to create the irreplaceable gift of memories for you and future generations.
I currently live, and am based out of beautiful Denver, Colorado, But I love to travel and explore new places! I specialize in outdoor wedding + portrait photography for the free-spirited and madly in love. I truly love what I do with a passion in my soul. I would describe my style as colorful, fresh and timeless. I have had the incredible honor of photographing 70+ weddings and portrait sessions. Other passions of mine include dancing, going to concerts with friends, spending time in nature, reading a good book, riding my bike and spending time with my amazing boyfriend, Richard!
