Hi Everyone! I'm Jackie. I have been a photographer for about 10 years now specializing in weddings and portraits. I got started in photography during my time in college while I was taking an intro to photography class and just fell in love. I loved how it gave me an outlet to create and to offer something to the world. After doing an internship with a great photographer and mentor, I fell even more in love with weddings and photographing people. Photography is so powerful and even more so when it is of people you love. That is what makes it worthwhile!
I now live in the Rivera Nayarit in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Punta de Mita) and love to photograph destination weddings. It was a big change moving from sunny California to Mexico however, it has been such a wonderful experience to fully immerse myself in the culture and continue to do what I love best: photographing people.
Weddings are my favorite, mostly because I am a hopeful romantic and enjoy hearing how two people met and decided on forever together. What I love most is when my clients allow me to go on adventures with them and be a part of their story.
For me it's about creating something that reflects who my clients are as individuals and ultimately as a couple. It's about their love story coming to life through the power of photographs. When I can create that for a couple, then I know I have done my job!
Like Gabriela and Fernando. Their wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico was an intimate, romantic, and beautiful beach front wedding full of love. With only their close family and friends to share in such a joyous moment. I was in awe of their love and all the emotions that flowed through out the entire day.
