Florida & Destination 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
Adventure Engagements
Elopements with Epic Destinations
Couples Boudoir

What It Means

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’m super passionate about wedding photography and capturing couples in artistic, authentic ways.

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.

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 1/3 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.
