It is a pleasure to introduce you to an inspiring, all-star photography duo, Jessica Del Vecchio and Chris Williams! These two photographers lend their craft and time in service of Bread for the City’s clients and community, and we are so honored this team chose to join our family!
Jessica Del Vecchio first joined Bread for the City in 2008 as a donor and volunteer photographer. After learning about Bread for the City’s programs and meeting the staff and clients, Jessica knew she wanted to do more as she witnessed members of her community grow in an environment of dignity and respect.
And lucky for us–she did!
In 2012, Jessica spearheaded our holiday portrait sessions, a cherished, celebratory event that offers free professional holiday portraits to clients, community members, and staff. The Bread for the City community was so grateful that we recognized Jessica as a Volunteer of the Year. It was the one year she attended our volunteer ceremony as an honoree and not a volunteer (though of course, she brought her camera just the same).
I can’t think of anywhere else in the world that I go where I am greeted with as much love and as many smiles and hugs than when I walk through the doors at Bread, except for when I visit my family! So as for a most memorable experience, it is hard to narrow it down to just one! The people – the staff and the clients – are the most memorable part! – Jessica Del Vecchio
For over a decade, Bread for the City and the DC community have been the beneficiary of Jessica and Chris’ generosity, support, and partnership. The two officially joined forces in 2015, with Jessica and Chris merging Jessica Del Vecchio Photography and Zoeica Images. Collectively, they have photographed hundreds of weddings (some staffers included!) and have a combined 27 years of experience in documentary and wedding photography, shooting in DC, New Orleans and worldwide.

Whether the duo is capturing the cheer of Holiday Helpings, hosting a fundraising drive for our programs, donating to Bread for the City, volunteering, or photographing our events (check out their recent work at our 2018 Good Hope Gala!)–we remain inspired by their service and exemplary sense of giving.
