My relationship with Jaleccia began in September of 2012 at a local pageant. Little did I know the tremendous impact she would have on my life as the years progressed. I have had the opportunity to work with Jaleccia on many occasions, but our last connection was definitely the most special. Jaleccia served as our wedding photographer and did an excellent job capturing our intimate moments. From our engagement shoot to our wedding ceremony and reception, she ensured that every detail was documented. My husband and I now have the privilege to look back on our sweet precious memories and reminisce on our times together. From our getting ready photographs, to walking down the aisle, to our first kiss as husband and wife, to our first dance, and leaving in our limo, Jaleccia did not miss a beat! Jaleccia is super sweet, kind, and loving; she’s an absolute jewel who is very intentional and purposeful with her gift and craft. She does an outstanding job at listening to her customers ideas and bringing our visions to life. Once the vision was communicated, I literally had no worries or concern during our wedding day portraits. It rained on our wedding day and even with the rain, Jaleccia was able to easily navigate and troubleshoot a plan to ensure that our day went extremely smoothly, and we were able celebrate our union under Christ without worry. My husband and I are extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Jaleccia, and we are looking forward to our future connections. Without a doubt, I would recommend Jaleccia Ates Photography to anyone looking for a talented, professional photographer. We will definitely work together in the future! She’s the BEST!


From engagement to wedding pictures, Jaleccia gave us pictures that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. The quality of the pictures Jaleccia took is better than we could've imagined. Jaleccia is so kind, courteous and organized. Throughout our wedding planning journey, she checked on us to see how our overall wedding plans were going and that meant so much to us. From the first time we were behind her lens, we felt so comfortable and for us that was really important. On our wedding day, she had everything mapped out so it all went so smoothly. She captured every shot we wanted and we could not stop smiling when we got our pictures back. We are proud to say that we are Jaleccia Ates Photography customers for life.

When we were asked to write a testimonial for Jaleccia Ates Photography without hesitation we agreed.  Jaleccia was the photographer of our engagement shoot and our wedding.  I knew of Jaleccia in High School due to a mutual friend, but once I looked at her work on her Facebook page my interest was peaked in a professional way.  Sometimes when you work with someone you know it is hard to gauge their professional level.  However, my husband and I met her at a Starbucks for the official meeting and ended up going over our proposed budget price to have the chance to work with her.  She showed us different options in prices to make sure we got exactly what we wanted.  She listened to our vision of The Scarlet Wedding and made it come to life.  She did research and came to the engagement with knowledge of our story and brought props along that fit our theme.  During the engagement shoot she made us feel comfortable and captured our personalities.  She didn’t make us do generic poses that every couple does.  This stood out to us because we wanted our pictures to be unique.  Then she kept in touch with us throughout the rest of our engagement until the day of the wedding.  Jaleccia arrived early and took the bridal and groomsmen pictures before the wedding to eliminate making our guest wait too long to start the reception.  She already had pictures that she wanted to get, but she also took suggestions and made everyone feel relaxed.  She made sure to capture the magic of that day and wasn’t the type of photographer who ruins the wedding to get the shot.  Overall, I would recommend this business to anyone.  I have already referred her once and continue to speak highly of her every time someone looks at our pictures.  If you want someone professional, personable, creative, and reliable then Jaleccia Ates is who you need to take your business to.  



I was honored to have Jaleccia Ates as my photographer. She went above and beyond to capture moments on my wedding day and even when my husband and I took more pictures with her after our wedding. She is great at what she does and she will take away any stress that you may have, and lets be honest a bride goes through a lot of stress on her wedding day. I never had to worry about how my pictures would turn out because I knew I was in good hands. She took me step by step through the whole process and showed such professionalism from beginning to end. If you need someone to capture your special moment then look no further, Jaleccia Ates Photography is the way to go!
