I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

About Me

I'm Jessica Sweeney and I'm San Francisco photographer, specializing in weddings and portraits.

Originally from Berkeley, CA, I've lived in 5 countries but finally came back home to San Francisco. I live with my cat Mouse and my boyfriend, plus maybe a couple of my boyfriend's brothers. I'm absolutely in love with my camera and it comes with me everywhere.

I believe that photography is a way to capture the present and preserve it for the future. I also believe that the search for beauty, and the appreciation of beauty makes us all better people. I believe that everyone has something special to give, and I believe that I'm here to capture that, from time to time.

Contact me at jessica@quotidianphotography.com. No question is too small, and I love getting feedback on my work. Don't forget to also check out my website!

I'm absolutely addicted to:
-Burritos (veggie, please, with black beans and everything on it)
-Rufus Wainwright, The Beatles, Death Cab for Cutie, Zero 7, or any of the rotating bands on my iTunes playlists
-Good friends. And easy, flowing banter. 
-Second hand clothing stores that have great clothes at amazing prices (hello Crossroads, I'm talking to you!)
-A faint touch of sarcasm. Keeps the blood moving.
-The iBooks app on my iPhone. First time I've bought so many books in one month. Oops!
-Late nights. I'm not a morning person, and I'm convinced I only really get energized right about the time everyone else is going to sleep.
-Coffee. Goes hand in hand with those late nights, and it's a one-cup-a-day habit that I don't really want to kick. It's so delicious.
