Vero Beach Wedding Photography

Hey there! I’m Jackie – lead wedding photographer and owner of ardensea!

My specialty is wedding photography but my passion is capturing raw and authentic memories, experiences, and emotions between my couples.

Waving to you from

South Florida

I’m all about:

Wedding Photography
Adventurous Engagements
Elopements with Epic Destinations
Couples Boudoir Sessions

The Meaning

Give me soulmates, love stories, & romantic destinations

Ardensea comes from the the words “ardent” which means to be passionate. Combined with my love of the ocean and weakness to epic love stories, it’s the perfect way to describe what I do. I am extremely passionate about wedding photography and capturing couples in artistic, authentic ways without being obtrusive or disruptive to your wedding day.

On top of being a published wedding photographer, I’m a Vero Beach native, military veteran, travel junkie, and creative entrepreneur. But there is so much more to my story!

The Style

Vibrant, raw, and emotional.


I invest time to get to know each couple personally to create the bond necessary to let the boundaries down to get real with the feels, and let the magic happen between you as a couple and the lens. Plan to smile together, belly laugh, and maybe even shed a tear or two!

Whether you dream of a small, intimate elopement, a grand ballroom wedding, or a photo-journalistic adventure, get in touch with me to make your photographic vision a reality.

How It Works

1. Let’s Talk

Let’s discuss your hopes and dreams for your wedding day and see if we’re a perfect fit together. I’ll send you over a questionnaire to confirm a few details and then you’ll get a customized package.

2. Save the Date

Once we find that we’re the perfect fit, I’ll send you everything you need to save your wedding day with Ardensea. After signing a contract and making your $500 deposit, you’re on the calendar!

3. Schedule the Engagement Session

Once your day is secured, we’ll get your engagement session scheduled. We’ll work together to make the experience fun and memorable, all getting out practice in for the big day.

Love Notes

Oh my god these are everything -

These are everything I have dreamed of. You are amazing...

We were completely in love with the pictures Jackie gave us!

She was amazing and so easy to work with. We really enjoyed her being apart of our special day. She made sure everyone was comfortable and everything turned out great!!

A fairytale come true!

We'll recommend her to everyone we can! #DannyAndDidi

Jackie was unbelievable on our wedding day!

She made us all feel so comfortable and her photos were amazing to say the least, I cannot stop staring at them we are so thrilled! I would recommend Jackies services to anyone, we can't thank her enough for making our day so special and the memories she has provided us with!

I’d love to get to know you.

And I hope you want to know me, too!

Becoming great at what I do did not happen overnight. I’ve been shooting weddings since 2008, and that’s over 12 years of building relationships, learning from my mistakes, and fine-tuning my craft.

Yes, I want my couples to get to know me for my great work. But more importantly, I want my couples to know me for the fantastic client experience that I provide! That is something that no matter of skills behind the camera can provide.

So, let’s get familiar with each other! I’d love for you to read my “about me” page to make sure I am a great fit for your wedding.
