MEET JACKI POTORKE
I believe we were all made for wonderment and connection. What I love about humans is that we each carry a distinctive story. Visually capturing the narratives of life and love, particularly the unsayable moments, is why I do this work. The images I make are uncontrived and in the moment, with a focus on honest emotion and a sense of place.
I am based in Northern California but will happily travel to wherever you are celebrating. No destination is out of the question.
A few of my favorite things include: spending quality time with loved ones, exploring the great outdoors, giving back through humanitarian work, going on road trips, listening to crackly vinyl, attempting to read numerous books at once, laughing from the gut, and joining together in community.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
Jacki shot our wedding 2 years ago, and we were blown away by not just her photos, but her energy and ability to capture great moments. She is a patient, kind, and easygoing person which is exactly who you want around on a day like your wedding.
I hired Jacki to shoot my wedding in Chico at a beautiful covered bridge. Honestly, hiring Jacki was the second best decision I made after asking my husband to to marry me. She was a damn dream to work with. Her pictures were above and beyond any and all of my expectations. Her communication before the wedding was effortless and easy, like talking to someone I had known for years. Her results were amazing. I never wanted traditional and posed wedding photos, everything she shot felt like she captures moments in time, perfectly candid and gorgeous. She gives great direction, and really knows how to work with people. On top of everything she was also an extremely cool person! I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone! Thank you so much Jacki! You’re the best!
Jacki was our wedding photographer, and she did an amazing job – she listened closely to our requests, sensitively interacted with our family, and intuitively understood which moments would mean the most. Incredible photos.
