I walk alongside each of my couples to help with their planning. I firmly believe a wedding day should be a day the couple can relax, have fun, and focus on what the day is about: starting a marriage! I do not want my couples to get too wrapped up in details or to be distracted the day of their wedding, so I do A LOT of wedding day prep work ahead of time with each couple.
On top of that, I love getting to know my couples on a more personal level so that I can best guide and direct them during the actual picture taking time. The better I know a couple, the more enjoyable their experience will be. My ultimate goal is that they have fun, feel like themselves and feel confident!
You aren’t just hiring me to take some photos on your wedding day. From the day you book me, I’M HERE FOR YOU!
My heart wants to serve you and help make the wedding planning process as enjoyable as possible! I’ve got you! After booking, you’ll receive multiple guides to help make your planning a bit easier. My guides contain tips, guidance and suggestions as we plan both your engagement session and wedding day. You’ll also receive a couple questionnaires that help me get to know you both better, and that will help you organize, plan as you book vendors and make big decisions about your wedding day.
I check in with my couples often and have other tools that will ease the entire process. I invite my couples to call, email or text me whenever they have questions, need vendor recommendations or just need some words of encouragement! Chances are you’ve never planned a wedding before, so let me be your personal expert!
Whether you’ve got me booked for 6 hours or 10, I only book one event a day, so if you ever need me earlier than expected or ask me to stay later than planned, 99% of the time I can make it happen!
If you or your wedding party need anything, just let me know and I’ll take care of it however I can. Once I arrive, my focus is you, your love, and capturing every real, raw, and authentic moment! Your job is to get married and enjoy the day, stress free!
I want you to be focused on what a wedding is all about - joining a life with another and starting a marriage. The wedding day is obviously so fun and a time to celebrate, but I don’t want you to walk away from your wedding wishing you had been more in the moment and not focused on the fact that the napkins were the wrong color. I want you to be present so when you look at your photos you have great memories of your day and that your love shines through each photo.
Expect some sneak peek photos within 24 hours after your wedding! I’ll keep you updated on how the editing process is going and have your gallery to you no more than two months later.
If you have a print credit or just want to make an additional purchase, we’ll work on getting prints, canvas wraps or an album ordered for you. I love hearing reactions to your photos, so please tell me the moment you’ve looked through them all!
Reviews on Google and Facebook are awesome too! And whether I see you when dropping off your album or we go grab a cup of coffee just because, I love staying in touch with my couples! New friends are my favorite! And down the road (even though I don’t advertise it - shhhhhh), I am always thrilled to take photos of other milestones throughout your lives! Because once a JWild client, ALWAYS a JWild client!

I offer three different traditional wedding collections that all include access to my wedding prep guides and questionnaires to help organize and plan, an engagement session, high res digital images, online viewing/downloading and a print release. Every couple and wedding day is different, therefore I am always open to customizing a package that fits exactly what you’ve been dreaming of!

I’m a pro traveler and always have an updated passport, so I’ll meet you wherever for your unique, destination wedding! I’ll work with you as we plan to get your dream photos, whether on top of a mountain or running along the shoreline. This collection also includes a couple adventure photo session that we can do either the day before or after the wedding! Travel and accommodation fees apply.

Couples are leaning towards smaller, more intimate weddings and I'm totally there for it! I've photographed many weddings with under 25 guests, and multiple elopements with only the couple present. There is something so magical and beautiful about the intimacy of an elopement or micro-wedding. It truly allows you to focus on the person you're marrying and not get caught up in the stress of planning an extravagant party. I'll help you plan, scope out locations and organize all the details! Travel and accommodation fees apply.
STARTING AT: $1,800
If you just need engagement photos or want to celebrate your love by doing a couple session, we will pick a location that’s important to you and we’ll have a blast capturing some bomb photos together! Wanna go hiking? I’m there! Wanna go kayaking? Yes please! Wanna stroll through some gardens? Absolutely! You bring yourself and I’ll bring the music!

Jackie goes above and beyond for you as her client and I wouldn’t know what my wedding day would have been like without her. She knows exactly what she is doing. Jackie is professional, caring, fun and knowledgeable about her craft. I really enjoyed her and am so glad that I had her as a photographer. The pictures were beautiful! She’s beautiful inside and out!
This totally depends on how long I’m photographing, but I’ll be honest, I’m REALLY bad at narrowing it down, so you will get a lot of photos! I also change a lot of photos into black and white.
A contract has to be signed by both people along with myself, and a retainer is due within a week. The remaining total isn’t due until a week before the wedding date.
Absolutely! Part of my job is to help you so I use answers on your questionnaire to know how best to direct you during your session.
You’ll have engagement sessions within two weeks and weddings within eight, but I’ll send a sneak peek of both within 24 hours.
