"Working with Jessica has been such a great experience! I really have appreciated her attention to detail, her flexibility, and her patience.  As a teacher, I also appreciate her affordable prices, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.  She was so thorough on our engagement shoot and made us feel at ease with all of our poses.  She truly captured who my fiance and I are as a couple, and I can't wait for her to photograph our big day!!"

About me

Hi, my name is Jessica Howell Waldrop; I am the owner and lead photographer at J. Howell Art Photography.  I am based in South Louisiana, but I love to travel!

I have a master's degree in art education, and I teach art at the secondary and collegiate levels. I enjoy all things creative, especially creative portrait photography. 


My husband and I have 2 sweet kids that are our greatest blessings!!  We are also huge animal lovers, and we are eager to spend time outside participating in fun and adventurous activities as a family. I find a lot of my inspiration from the beautiful nature we are surrounded with here in the South.

Although I specialize in wedding photography, I capture a variety of major life events for my loyal clients.  From senior portraits to family lifestyle sessions, your life is my canvas.  I even take infant and animal portraits!  Working with fun and adventurous couples and families to capture their unique personalities is my passion!

Have questions? Contact me below!



"Jessica is wonderful to work with and I can't say enough good things about her.  She made our wedding day fun and memorable with her amazing photos she captured. I highly recommend Jessica!"
