Welcome to JessicaKranzPhotography.com! If you are interested in family or senior photos, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Let's create photo memories together!


Thank you for your interest in Jessica Kranz Photography! I live in Gahanna with my husband and my three  energetic boys. I enjoy running, a good hot cup of coffee and watching junky reality television in the background while I edit photographs.

I gained an interest in photography when I was pregnant with my first son, 15 years ago. My husband and I made an investment in a DSLR, which were just starting to become commonplace among consumers. I chose Canon because I remembered that my parents had a great point and shoot Canon camera that took "amazing" 4 megapxel images. Little did I know that so much goes into a making a good photograph. It isn't the equipment that is purchased that makes a good photograph!

Over the next couple of years, I used my DSLR in auto mode, and got lucky once in a while with a "good shot". When my twin boys were born, I decided that getting lucky wasn't cutting it any longer, so I studied up on shooting in manual, proper exposure and composition. After many months of practicing and taking online courses and teaching myself what makes a good image and how to achieve it, I started taking on events and portraits for friends.

I've now been enjoying photography for 10 years (and I have come a long way since that initial DSLR, of course), and I am loving every minute of it. In my portraits, I seek to achieve a touch of drama, and I tend to prefer creative edits- sometimes using textures and overlays to make your photos pop and tell a story. Regardless of the art that we are able to create together, my favorite part of this job is meeting new people. Many clients have become friends <3.


I have won the Customer's Choice Award for 2014 and 2015 on Wedding Wire. I am a member of the PPA and insured. Although I no longer shoot weddings, I remember those years fondly.

I hope that you enjoy my portfolio slideshow. If you think that I am a good photographer match for you, please contact me and we can discuss your vision.
