Nationally recognized photographer Jessie Preza has been specializing in interiors, food, furniture and hospitality photography for the better part of two decades, collaborating with talented designers, restaurants and household brands to tell stories through photojournalistic images. Her fresh, natural and approachable style, sharp eye for detail, and her love for home, food and lifestyles have led to her images being featured in over 100 national and local magazines.

Telling stories through each of her images, she has contributed images and photographed for shelter magazines such as Meredith Corporation, Engaged Media, Hearst Communications, Hoffman Media, Time, Inc. and other beloved lifestyle publications.

Jessie works with some of the best and brightest minds in Florida, Texas, the Carolinas, Minnesota, Louisiana and beyond, making connections and paving the way for beautiful editorial features in print magazines and digital outlets. She works closely with editors, producers, writers, stylists, designers and art directors.

Jessie feels honored to spend her days in beautiful homes, traveling for shoots, tasting great food and meeting brilliant people. Capturing beauty is her calling; even when she’s without a camera, she sees life through the lens. Cheers!

Yes, I travel for shoots

I can travel for projects and do so quite frequently. I have a travel fee outside the Jacksonville area. Expenses such as props, stylists, wardrobe, talent (if necessary), and overnight travel are additional fees and a proposal will be given prior to photo shoot. Hotel travel and airfare will be charged for shoots beyond a 100-mile radius from Jacksonville, Florida.

pets, plants & people

Here's a quick tip for photography & styling \ \ I've created a rule I try to live by when photographing any project. Going back to my own theory to try to have something “living” in each shot: pets, plants or people - this can extend to herbs, water, food, books or something that feels “lived in" - And everyone who works with me, or follow me on instagram, knows I love a good blur shot, and will also put kids and pets in any chance I get, I am a huge animal lover and welcome them in shots! When in doubt, always add fresh florals. Photo shoots are that much better with real greenery, pictures really came alive by adding fresh botanicals, as well as another pop of color and texture.
