I'm so glad you are here. I'm a boutique wedding photographer specializing in natural light photography. I am based out of northern New Jersey and have a passion for photographing life wherever it takes me.
My passion for photography stemmed from the idea of being able to freeze a moment in time, forever preserving an emotion or memory that would otherwise be forgotten. I was the girl who had a mini-mouse camera when I was little and would not dare leave my house in high school without my disposable camera! I would rush to the local store to develop all my pictures and it was like Christmas morning every time. In high school I took my first film class (I will totally age myself and say digital did not exist, ha) and it was there that I realized I had a serious passion for being able to capture the beauty in everyday life. That feeling has never left!
Life as it happens however spun me in a different direction after college and I developed a successful career in digital advertising. After 10 years, I realized I not only wanted but needed to follow my heart. I love the simple things in life that make it so precious and that’s why I feel so lucky to be able capture these moments as a profession.
Since then, I have been featured in various print and online publications including New Jersey Bride, Wedding Chicks, Red Oak Weddings, It Started With Yes, The Westchester Wedding Planner and Pop Sugar. I have also been featured as Wedding Wire's 2018 Couples Choice Award.

"...while she's undoubtedly a professional in every way, Jackie has a special quality about her that makes you feel like you're working with an old friend..."
a few of my
One of my most favorite things is what some consider the most simple...family time, on the couch with my hubbs Ryan, baby boy Parker and 75 pound super snuggly yellow lab Lexi...and yes I need a formal family photo!!
Food & Wine
I love anything that has to do with food, wine and coffee. Period! I have an obscene amount of Pinterest recipes just waiting there for me to try! Trying new restaurants and hanging at vineyards are our fav!
Lover of my family, pizza, red wine, iced coffee, Anthropologie, 90's hip hop and pups
By a standard definition, one might infer something adventurous but for me and my fam? It runs the gamut! For my pup it can be something as simple as an impromptu car ride, to hiking, to helicopter rides. You say the word "adventure" to our pup and she's at the door waiting with her waggy tail.
I love everything about it from creating relationships to capturing life's moments. They only happen once and I'm obsessed with being able to preserve a feeling that is otherwise forgotten.
