— About me, social media, and how to get in touch
Hi. My name is Jessica Rae Cortez. I'm a professional photographer, writer and social media strategist, living in the sun-kissed hills of San Diego.
Having graduated from PLNU and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, with degrees in Creative Writing and Visual Communications, I have over 16 years of photography and writing experience. My editorial work has appeared in over 20 magazines and newspapers, including DiscoverSD and SD CityBEAT. In 2016 I established Velzy and Reed Photography to make others feel beautiful and alive.
I currently produce compelling images and fresh copy for social media channels, and believe in:
The power of brevity and tailoring words to perfection.
Telling a story through photographs to connect the world to each other.
To deliver a super-focused approach to storytelling, and to live a life full of passion, creativity and philanthropy.
