Hey hey, I'm so glad you stopped by! My name is Jackie Wild and I’m a Wisconsin based wedding and couple photographer who loves love! I mostly photograph engagements and weddings in midwest, but I also travel around the US and out of country to document love!
I’m the main photographer around here and my husband Matt is my go-to second photographer at weddings (he also does a lot of the behind the scenes boring stuff like taxes and junk). He has his own full time job doing doing sales and marketing in the aircraft industry, so I kind of forced him into photography, but he’s amazing at it! Plus, getting to work alongside one another is just so much fun! We love working together as a team!
I have traveled all around the globe and have even had couples bring me along on trips if they have an amazing place they want to do a session. So if someone wants to hike to the top of a mountain for their engagement session, wants to run along the shores of Lake Michigan, find a beautiful flower field in the rolling hills or wander the streets of downtown Chicago, I’m your girl!
My couples often tell me how confident they feel when working with me, that I help calm their nerves, and that I get them excited about the next time I’ll take their photos.
My wonderful husband Matt and I have been love birds since 2008 and it’s the absolute BEST! He grew up in western New York, I grew up in the Chicago ‘burbs, and of all places, we met in Kansas! I’m a former 7th grade English teacher turned photographer and I have absolutely zero regrets about leaving the classroom behind.
We're self-proclaimed adventurers, foodies, lovers of state & national parks and we’re HUGE believers of marriage! One of the reasons that we adore photographing weddings is getting a front row seat of a love story entering the covenant of marriage! It is such a humbling and beautiful experience!
When we’re not working, you can probably find us entertaining our two crazy boys, hiking at a state park, biking a local trail, watching The Office or Modern Family, sipping on a fun cocktail, snowboarding/skiing, hitting up a Milwaukee brewery or beer garden, searching for the best Thai food in town or planning our next domestic or international trip!
We love getting to meet and work with so many amazing people every year! It's so fun to find ourselves hanging out with our couples beyond their wedding day (we may even find ourselves vacationing together one day)! We get to make so many new friends, and that is so incredibly special to us!
We look forward to connecting with you!
