This is it.

When it’s all over, this is it, babe. 

Photos of these moments + memories are all that’s left. 

Moments full of tears + laughter, tears even from laughter, drunkin’ dancing, the people you love beside you, or maybe its just the one you love most beside you + the stars twinkling above you, these memories all fade away. But photos continue to bring them back to life for generations to come. Tell me your story + I’ll show you how damn beautiful it is. One frame at a time.

I’m Jackie. Traveling wedding + elopement photographer + photography/small biz educator for more than a decade. 

I’m mum to a kid way cooler than me + a dog who’s more popular than I am. You might even meet my dog… we’re kinda co-dependent 😉

I believe…

all love is real love

no corner of the world is too far

curse words are just sentence embellishers 

in creating an unforgettable experiences 

indulgence is necessary in this life (never skip dessert or a seat upgrade)

life’s too short to take things so seriously…seriously

your love should be celebrated always (I’ll bring the tequila?)

who we are at our core is what matters

If any of that resonates even just a little, let’s be friends!

Best elopement photographer ever! First, booking and communication was on point. She was proactive and helpful as we planned our ceremony out of state. Day of, she helped us capture everything we wanted from a traditional wedding with just us two. And the photos, timely follow up and everything after the wedding was incredible. Our preview photos were over 100 to hold us over while she edited the rest of them. My husband told me, I didn’t even feel like she was taking photos. Highly recommend Jaclyn for all couples.

I don't even know what words to use to describe how AMAZING Jacilyn is always, and was on our wedding day. She took the time to MEMORIZE every family member and wedding parties names, she brought on another amazing second shooter, she was truly the all around MVP of our day. It was just a bonus that our photos ended up being so unbelievably stunning. If you are thinking of having her capture your life in anyway, you will NOT be disappointed. she is truly the best. I will forever be obsessed with her and her amazing work.

Jackie is amazing in every way. She's got a great, chill, yet confident energy about her. She's super efficient yet also really personable - with the whole family, beyond the bride + groom. I also find Jackie has a unique perspective relative to other wedding photographers, so check out her pics (IG), and if you love them, you'll love her! I loved Jackie so much that we used her for our elopement, then brought her back for the full family wedding! Now that's saying something! Highly recommend - you won't regret.

Sasha - Eloped on Maui in Hawaii

Jackie is incredible! She had never shot a wedding in our destination before, then she traveled here and captured it so perfectly that it felt like she'd been taking photos here for years. She navigated the area with ease, and we loved her genuine, easygoing, and fun personality.

It was very important to us to not feel rushed with photos, and we appreciated all of the time she spent with us. She came for rehearsal and took time to explore the area. In addition to capturing our whole wedding day, we also had a day-after shoot from sunrise to sunset. We suggested a few general locations for that day, and Jackie ran with those and found the most extraordinary photo spots.

Photography was #1 for our wedding, and we're so grateful we had the opportunity to work with Jackie!

…We chose Jackie as our photographer and even after just emailing her we could tell she was exactly what we wanted in a photographer. She was so kind, patient (I sent a ton of questions and pictures haha), and so easy to work with. She didn't act like we were just another job for her, she really acted like she cared. We didn't meet her until the day before the wedding. We asked her to come to our rehearsal dinner and she spent the time helping us with our rehearsal and getting to know our friends and family. Even before the wedding people were saying how helpful and great she was. To say she was amazing on our wedding day would honestly be an understatement. My husband does not like taking pictures and he can't stop talking about how much fun she made the whole process. She guided us every step of the way and made sure that we all had a blast. When I got stressed on our wedding day, she was right there to tell me everything was great and to enjoy myself. She made a point to know all of our friends and family member's names. She made a point to talk to people, and our family is still talking about how caring she was. The number one thing we have gotten compliments on after the wedding is her. She just went above and beyond in every single way. We were happy with our decision before we even saw our pictures. THEN we saw our preview and were absolutely blown away. Jackie is just an incredible person and should maybe be invited to every wedding ever haha but her photography skills are more than we could have ever imagined. We wanted a photographer who genuinely cared about our day and we got that and more with Jackie.

How do we give Jackie more than 5 stars???? Words cannot describe how incredible she is - as a photographer, person, and businesswoman. First off, her photographs speak for themselves. Jackie takes beautiful photos. We had a winter wedding in Montana and we were looking for a photographer who could handle lighting, weather, and travel challenges. Jackie fit the bill. From day 1 Jackie made us feel like a priority. Communication was always fast and she instantly makes you feel like a long time friend. We ended up booking her for our rehearsal, wedding, and wedding brunch and are so happy we did. Turn around time was very quick and you get full rights to the photos. She even gave us a few mini Polaroids in the middle of our wedding night of shots from the day. Mind blown. Seriously this brought tears to our eyes. Jackie went above and beyond our expectations. She has the rare ability to make you feel totally at ease and also be a detail-oriented professional who works hard to make sure you have a beautiful end result. It's really not a question of whether you should book Jackie, but whether you are lucky enough to snag her before her calendar is ful!

Trina - Montana Winter Wedding at Private Estate

If I could give 20 stars I would. Where do I even begin with Jackie!! First things first she took my husband and Is engagement and wedding photos both a year apart and both times my jaw was on the floor with her sheer talent of capturing our love through her lens. She’s an amazing photographer but she’s an even better person with the purest soul. She makes you feel like you’ve known one another for years and treats you like family. She has an amazing creative eye and captures the most raw and genuine moments of your special day. When I posted my first set of photos from her preview (which she got back to me in a week aka she’s incredible) everyone who saw our photos said they belong in a magazine. Photos aside, Jackie is extremely organized and is an amazing communicator. Wedding planning is stressful especially the day off, but Jackie came into my day with a game plan and made sure that I got everything I wanted and every special moment was captured. I could write a novel on how amazing she is and how everyone should use her to capture lives special moments. I already have friends telling me they want to use her as their photographer because she produces the best images far above the rest.
