Jessica Flynn is a dynamic woman providing high quality photography and videography services across the Darling Downs and beyond. Jessica thinks big across a big swatch of Queensland and captures highly regarded images from all angles through her camera lens.  Successfully producing 16,000 magazines a month keeping communities connected in the Western Downs gave Jessica a strong foundation in supporting and highlighting businesses as well as in business strategies.  She honed her business and copywriting skills through her interaction with her country audience.

Life sometimes deals surprises and negative blows, and the move of publications from print to online formats dealt a cruel blow to regional newspaper and magazine enterprises such as Jessica’s and hers was unfortunately priced out of viability.

Her commitment to continual learning, self-taught skills and providing a bright future for herself and her children, saw Jessica move to  Kingsthorpe and then in to Toowoomba.  Transferring her skills to a new location, and with a focus on providing a very special family friendly package for Brides and Grooms, Jessica purchased a unique bed and breakfast venue with two houses in a landscaped yard overlooking one of Toowoomba’s renowned CBD parklands.  In 2016, she studied videography to be able to bring a more emotive feel to her work, and has since captured a substantial slice of the videography market.

Toowoomba Homestays now offers Bannockburn Lodge and Bannockburn Cottage, both extremely special venues.  Under Jess, they have become a highly sort-after venue for wedding parties or families celebrating special events to share the facilities in a safe, roomy and familiar atmosphere before and after the event formalities.  The houses, when rented together, offer Toowoomba’s highest capacity B&B accommodation and are pet friendly, so families can feel totally relaxed. The sense of relaxation extends to Jessica’s photography and videography style.  This friendly relationship with her clients means she can quickly build a genuine, empathic relationship which allows candid capture during the posing and shooting sessions.

The B&Bs come with a recommendation from Gabbinbar Homestead, a premier Toowoomba wedding venue.  Jessica set up the Toowoomba Homestays houses especially designed with lighting and fittings to capitalise on perfect photographic conditions……and the results speak for themselves.

She is always looking for a new challenge for learning and has added to her skills in marketing by currently studying for her Real Estate Licence.  These skills have lead her to creating a Virtual Guide Book for Bannockburn Cottage and Lodge, distributed on Stayz and Airbnb.  Toowoomba Homestays offer a truly ‘home away from home’ experience and are very popular.  Jessica employs a full cleaning staff to ensure the highest standard and comfort for the guests looking for a self-catering experience.  The numerous car parks and house facilities make the Homestays a premium asset to the Toowoomba wedding accommodation options.

Jessica‘s business and family security’s future is factoring in the growing need for more accommodation by acquiring more properties for short-term rentals, particularly including wedding groups, as a buffer against economic setbacks such as COVID.  This savvy young businesswoman is in demand for all the right reasons.
