Hi, I’m Jackie
I’m a scientist who married my high school sweetheart, had a baby, and left the lab to cultivate a beautiful life full of joy, love, and freedom. My photography has allowed me to discover my greater purpose in helping women feel seen, understand their self worth, and live their best lives.

"Jackie always manages to capture that beautiful space between tender, real-life...moments and fine art editorial photography. I feel so beautiful and emotional after receiving our galleries. We've had her take photos for us for multiple milestones in life and I'm already looking forward to the next time we can work with her!"
“Jackie and Matt are not only amazing photographers, but such wonderful human beings who care about the couples they work with and are unbelievably kind and patient throughout the whole wedding process. We are so lucky to have them capture our wedding day because their work is so classic, timeless, and amazingly beautiful. Their talent and kind hearts are the reasons we just booked our one anniversary session with them as well! Thank you so much for all that you do Jackie and Matt!”
"Jackie and Matt are an all-star team - couple goals right there!! They are so calm, cool and collected and they make you feel the same...They captured our day perfectly. The emotion, the beauty, the FUN! If I got to marry my husband every day for the rest of my life, the first call I would make would be to Jackie and Matt. They will be the best decision you ever make. Worth every single cent."
"I highly recommend Jackie... she is a true professional and genuinely cares about her clients!...I had never done a boudoir session and self-confidence is most definitely NOT my strong suit, but...she made me feel incredibly comfortable...The photos came out better than I could have imagined and I know my fiance will love them as well...I can't thank her enough for making what is a very vulnerable experience for most, a great and fun memory in the wedding planning process and for beautifully capturing the essence of this time in our lives for my fiance (and I) to cherish forever!"
"I highly recommend booking Jackie and Matt for your special day! From start to finish, the communication and experience was so professional. They are the friendliest photographers and really made me, my husband, and everyone in our wedding so comfortable. Their style of photography is absolutely gorgeous. It's whimsical, timeless, and just straight up beautiful. They shot in both film and digital and thoroughly did their research to learn exactly what type of photos we were looking to leave our day with."
"Jackie & Matt are truly exceptional photographers and modern day artists...Every photo they deliver is truly a work of art. From start to finish, they were extremely organized, professional, and caring. They were by far my favorite vendor because they knew how stressful it was to plan a wedding, so they cherished every detail...On the day of the wedding, they made us feel comfortable and fully captured the raw emotions of our love despite the chaos of the day."
"Jackie and Matt...are absolutely incredible. Their whimsical, natural light photos speak for themselves, but what you can’t tell from the photos are how kind, engaged and conscientious they are as people and as photographers...They made us camera shy folks that we are, at ease in front of the camera with their calming and reassuring presence...We were so thrilled when our gallery was ready; we couldn’t have asked for more beautiful photos to remember our special day!"
"We recently did a fall family photo shoot with Jackie and she was a dream to work with! Our 1 year old son was so difficult the entire time but Jackie was so patient and professional. We just got our images back and they are absolutely gorgeous. I am obsessed, I can't stop looking at them! She captured the sweetest moments in the most beautiful lighting. Her artistic vision is so ethereal and timeless. I'm so thankful to have these memories for a lifetime."
