Hello!

Based in Akron, Ohio, Klodt Photography specializes in artistic and timeless wedding photography.

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Jessica, the girl behind the lens. I have specialized in weddings since 2005 and have documented over 200 weddings. I love seeing all the trends, styles and different personalities that each wedding contains. It doesn’t matter if your wedding is being held at a family farm, where guests sit on hay bales, or at a glamorous ballroom in downtown Cleveland. I put my heart and dedication into each and every wedding, no matter how different they may be. I care about my couple’s day running as smoothly as possible. If that means lacing up a corset dress, or taking the flowers to the church from the salon, putting bows on the pews, helping with hair or makeup, calling a late limo driver to see his ETA: don’t worry, I’ve done it. After twelve years in business, I’ve learned to go with it. Weddings may have some sort of flaws, but at the end of the day, your photos won’t show the imperfections. I will capture all of the excitement, tears, hugs, kisses, laughs, possible nervous breakdowns, but most importantly LOVE.

I usually tear up during the first look, or the vows, or the speeches, or the father/daughter dance, or all of them! I think you’ll find that I’m very laid back and easy to work with. I want you to realize that even though your wedding may be my 300th one, I will still be as committed and excited as if it was my first. I have seen trends come and go over the past 12 years in this business, and that has defined who I have become as a photographer. I want your photos to look timeless and "in style" in 50 years, not outdated.

Jessica did an amazing job capturing our wedding day and we highly recommend her photography services to all couples looking for a quality photographer for their wedding. Her creativity and ability to capture stunning pictures when being given any environment makes her stand out from the rest. We also appreciated that she and her assistant were willing to work with us the entire day of our wedding and choose multiple locations to have our pictures taken which added to the variety of our photos. Her professionalism and attention to detail throughout our wedding planning speaks volumes as she had our final professionally edited pictures (over 1,200) sent to us within just a few short weeks of our wedding. We are so pleased with our wedding album and mothers albums, we love getting to show off our photos as they will definitely be a keepsake for many years to come!

To put it simply, Jessica is amazing. My husband and I had her take our engagement and wedding pictures and both sets were fantastic. She braved the extreme heat for our engagements and the extreme cold on our wedding day. And the best part: You couldn't even tell we were all freezing on my wedding day. She's professional, talented and has a great eye for finding the perfect shot. Jessica doesn't have time limits either, which is amazing. She stayed for almost my whole reception, and even took a beautiful night shot that I will cherish forever. I have been and will continue to recommend her to my recently engaged friends.

Megan & Steve

We really enjoyed working with Jessica. She is very professional but fun at the same time. She took our engagement and wedding photos and also shot "homecoming pictures" when my husband came home from deployment. We were looking for unique and artsy photos, We absolutely love how they turned out! I would highly recommend Klodt Photography to any bride looking for unique and fun pictures!

Monica & Eric

Jessica was absolutely amazing from the consultation phone call to the end of our wedding day! She was easy to contact, easy to work with, had great ideas, and all of our pictures turned out wonderfully!! We couldn't have been happier with the service Jessica provided us with, and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer!! Thank you, Jessica for capturing our special day!!

Kara & Nick

Jessica did mine and my husband's engagement and wedding pictures. We couldn't have asked for more professional more beautiful pictures! On our wedding day she made sure everything moved smoothly and was perfect. If we didn't have Jessica and her assistant do our wedding pictures I know for a fact we wouldn't be as happy with the outcome. I never had a single worry if our pictures were going to turn out great because I've seen other wedding/engagement pictures and they are all beautiful. Every couples pictures are different, you never have to worry about having the same looking pictures as someone els. She truly is amazing at what she does. Highly recommend her!!

Cassie & Cody

It is always myself and my female associate. My associate will photograph during the ceremony and reception, and help with posing and organizing family formals.
