Hey there! I'm Jackie and I'm so glad you're here!
I'm an adventurer, a lover of mountains, of camping, of coffee, and of documenting love stories wherever they happen.
I'm also your relationship's biggest fan. I will probably cry a little when you exchange vows and I will most definitely celebrate you and your decision to have your wedding YOUR way. I'm passionate about capturing the emotive and the raw and creating a space where you can enjoy the experience and come out after it all loving each other even more.
As an introvert, I completely get how weird it can feel to have someone tag along photographing something so intimate and personal. Because I get it, I can promise you that it won't feel like that at all! I'm a great third wheel and will make a safe space for you to feel all the big feelings.
I WANT YOU TO LOOK BACK AT THE IMAGES FROM YOUR ELOPEMENT AND THINK, "HECK YEAH, THIS IS TOTALLY ME AND THIS IS US, OUR RELATIONSHIP AND OUR AUTHENTIC LOVE. THIS ISN'T A COLLECTION OF PHOTOS, THIS IS A COLLECTION OF OUR MOMENTS."
About the photography...
My approach to photography is cozy, earthy, and organic, with a focus on storytelling images that communicate connection.
I believe that life isn’t sterile and cannot be reduced to a few simple and tidy truths. The human experience is holistic, chaotic, genuine, scary, profound, and filled with breathtaking beauty. Photographs should reflect this.
Our experiences make us lovely and craft our stories. Consequently, we all have a story to tell.
You feel that a large traditional wedding will not ring true to who you are as a person and a partner, that it won't reflect you as a couple.
You would much rather spend your wedding day focusing on your commitment and doing what you love, rather than managing guests' expectations.
At the end of your wedding day, you want a collection of MOMENTS, not photos. It's all about the EXPERIENCE for you and you want your wedding day to be an authentic continuation of your LOVE STORY rather than a contrived situation where you don't feel you can be your TRUE SELVES.
You want your wedding day to be INTIMATE and AUTHENTIC with the focus where it belongs, on your RELATIONSHIP and your FUTURE together. On your ADVENTURE.
