I'm Jackie

Traveling wedding photographer + photography/small biz educator.

Mesmerized by the way two people love each other, each so uniquely.  I always leave room for dessert. Believe swear words are just sentence embellishers. Think indulgences are necessary in this life.

OH. MY. GOD. What the what!?!?! Lindsey & Jason are a dream couple to have had. Honestly sometimes I think every time I’ve photographed them was a dream. It’s too good to be true. But somehow it’s clearly true. From their cozy winter engagement in Whitefish, Montana. To their too-much-fun wedding outside Glacier National Park […]

I don’t enter many photos into photo contests. I don’t know, I just don’t. A lot of them, or most of them, turn into popularity contests of who can tell more people to vote for them and get them to do it. Just takes the fun out of a contest, I think. The Photo Contest […]
