Hi everyone and welcome to my blog/website!  Below, my blog is organized by most recent work first, but if you click on the “Blog Categories” menu item, you’ll be able to navigate to the type of photography that most interests you: weddings, family, maternity, etc.  In those categories, you will find more photos from weddings I have photographed or photoshoots I’ve done.  And as always, I can send you full wedding galleries from my weddings so you can see a wedding shot beginning to end.  Just shoot me an e-mail at jesseastburnphotography@gmail.com to see more samples!

Firs Year Baby Portraits | The Spangler Family – Yesterday, we braved the cold for this little Mousketeer’s birthday photos and what a trooper he was!! Such a sweetheart:) Holly and Ryan were a wedding couple of mine a few years ago and I was tickled pink when they contacted me for their little guy’s newborn photos, but even more excited when they asked me to photograph his one-year milestone!  I love the relationships I create with my couples and it is such an honor to be asked to document their growing families!!  I seriously have the best job in the world:)

First Year Baby Portraits | The Gable Family – Sweet little Linzey turned one!  I came out to the Gable’s home for some portraits and lifestyle shots and got some really awesome pics!  The cake smash shots at the end were challenging though as Lindsey made us work for them, lol!  She basically showed no interest in the delicious cake, but tons of interest crawling around.  Regardless, we got some keepers and when we were done, her siblings indulged for doing such a fabulous job:) Happy Birthday, Linzey!  You cutie lil’ woman:-)

Such amazing pictures of an adorable family!

Newborn\Baby Portraits | Baby Caleb – This is a recent newborn shoot wih a previous wedding client and my friends, Jess and Woody:)We shot these photos a couple weeks ago, but the “prop” photo they wanted with bowling pins just did not turn out the way I wanted it to. So I contacted them to set up a re-shoot. As luck would have it, Woody’s family owns a bowling alley: Pleasant Hill Lanes. So when they asked if I wanted to re-shoot the photo there, it was a no brainer, hahaha!! When would I EVER get this opportunity!! So awesome!!

Deerfield Christmas Wedding | Victoria and Phillip – I’ve been WAITING to post this wedding for so long!  I could have done it when their extended preview was done, but I knew I wanted to wait until their final gallery was completed.  I always discover more photos that I want to publish while I’m finishing the final gallery and waiting certainly payed off!!!  This was the last wedding of my insanely busy 2014 fall/winter wedding season.  This couple is so cool!!  I know it’s a corny word, but they are:) The love these two have for each other and the strong foundation they have in their friends and family was truly present at their beautiful holiday wedding!  Enjoy these photos because, in my opinion, it reflects some of my best work.  It’s amazing what you can achieve when you start getting outside your comfort zone and I gearing up (literally) for the upcoming 2016 spring/summer season!!!!!

Jessica, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for capturing our special day! You have an amazing talent! We are obsessed with every photo!

Susan King - February 26, 2016 - 8:22 pm

These are beautiful moments telling a true story between two special people and their abiding love for one another.
Here’s to you PHILLIP & VICTORIA! Love you!

The Belvedere Wedding | Cate and Mark – WOW, what a wedding and what a couple! Cate and Mark are the best! They are beautiful inside and out and hilariously funny! I love it when couples make each other laugh and have fun with their portraits and that’s exactly what they did:)After their 5 minute ceremony (one of the shortest I’ve ever covered, lol) the festivities began and the excitement built throughout the night. My favorite memory from this wedding is definitely the groom (a professional drummer) jumping on the band’s drum set and the bride jamming out on the cowbell, hahaha! So much fun!! Congratulations Cate and Mark!!
