Jess Kamens Photography: Rochester, NY Wedding Vendors


Supporting local event vendors is extremely important to me.
Research and networking has allowed me to bring together unique and artistic event and wedding venues,
small businesses who are owned by friends, friends of friends, funky, talented musicians and other trustworthy, kind folk.
I hope you will discover alternative suggestions that are new to you!
Feel free to ask me if you have any specific questions!
