Jackie is my name,
love stories are my game.
I’m a dreamer and hopeless romantic. In 2008, I started this business to be more than “just the typical photographer.” My roots and passion for my work run deep, and I truly crave the need to materialize the real, authentic moments in my couple’s lives.
My home studio is based in Vero Beach Florida, but my life has taken me all over the world.
why I do
what I do
When I was 14 years old, I looked through the lens of a 35mm Konica Minolta and my life changed forever. Now here I am – 16 years later – capturing love stories that my couples cherish for their whole lives.
Why do I do this job? Because when you see your photos for the first time – the feeling you get that brings you to happy tears – that feeling is the most rewarding thing in the world!
I’m working on a love story of my own.
I currently reside in sunny South Florida with the love of my life, Michael, and my rescue fur baby, Eli. We’re getting married next year and celebrating our lives in our brand new home.
We met in the Navy (that’s right – I’m a vet!), and were inseparable since the day we met way back in 2012. It’s actually a pretty cheesy story!
We’ve been PRIVILEGED to spend the past years going on countless adventures all over the world – from Ireland to Spain, to Turkey. We’re diving into our next and biggest adventure yet – MARRIAGE!
1. Vintage Camera Obsessed
I have a pretty big vintage film camera collection. Give me ALL the goodies!
2. I’m left handed
Maybe that’s why I am so creative!
3. I was a Fire Controlman Second Class (FC2) in the US Navy.
And yes, I spent a lot of time swabbing the deck.
4. I’m biracial – and i love that!
My mom is white, my dad is black. That makes me one awesome combination of both!
5. I am a Karaoke superstar!
Give me a mic! But first – maybe a shot.
5. I’m an empath – big time
Being a natural empath means I FEEL what you’re feeling. I pick up on your vibes hardcore, and I am always in tune to the people around me. Sometimes that’s amazing, sometimes it’s heart wrenching.
