"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life."
Hi! I'm Jacqueline! I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Augusta, GA. I've always loved photography. From a young age I enjoyed making off with my parents digital camera and taking pictures of random things, but I never planned on being a wedding photographer. My plan was always to become a pianist. However, my plans changed. I had a friend that was a wedding photographer and decided on a whim to text her and ask if I could tag along on a wedding. She said yes! That Saturday, my life changed. It's hard to fully describe the magic that is a wedding day. Is it crazy and hectic sometimes? Yes. Is every moment glamorous? No. But watching two people make the commitment to stay together forever is one of the most emotional things I think you can witness. These are moments you will only get to experience once, you don't get a second wedding day! That's why I do what I do. The fact that my couples trust me to capture these monumental moments in their lives is one of the greatest honors I think someone could ever give me; and it's one I don't take lightly. I don't want you to be just my client. I want to be your friend, to get to know you so that I can share your story in the most authentic way possible and serve you both as individuals and as a couple to the very best of my ability. These moments are once in a lifetime... and they should be captured so that you can remember them for the rest of your life.
Yup! That's me! From 1st grade through my senior year of high school I took piano lessons. My original goal was to become a concert pianist, but my plans changed after I suffered a severe wrist injury junior year. Thanks to my wonderful doctor I am now able to play again! I still take piano lessons and I frequently geek out over Mozart and Bach!
I love books. I love the way they smell. I love the way they look sitting on shelves (or piled on my nightstand). I love the sound of a hardcover book opening for the first time. I love everything about them. My idea of a perfect day is a rainy day curled up with my cats reading anything by Shauna Niequist or Brene Brown.
I currently live two minutes from Chick-fil-a and if there is anything I have learned from living that close, it's that sometimes I have absolutely no self restraint. It's just sooo close... and the fries are sooo good... it's the perfect late night pick me up when you're trying to get through a mountain of editing.
You know how people joke about those Aunts that are ridiculously obsessed with their niece or nephew? Yea... that's me. I currently have over 600 pictures of her on my phone. I was in the room when Ellie was born, I photographed her first breath, and I heard her first cry. They say a baby completely changes the mother's life, but it totally changed mine too.
I love flowers. But I specifically love those fluffy pink flowers. I will shamelessly admit that whenever they come into season, I stalk the grocery stores so I can fill the house with them. There's just something about them that makes me so happy.
