A few years ago I decided it would be cute to take the dogs for a picture with Santa, nothing fancy just a person in a suit in the back of a pet store. The outcome was a photo where my pups had the biggest silliest smiles on their faces, and oh the joy that single photograph brought me when it showed up in my inbox was astounding. It had made my entire week! And I still think about it. That feeling is what I want to give each and every one of my clients when their gallery arrives in their inboxes.
I’m Jacquie your wedding photographer and hopefully soon to be friend. Since we will be getting to know each other more, I'd love to tell you a few things about myself first.
Which fits well with my desire to always challenge and better myself. When I was first introduced to wedding and portrait photography I was excited that I could share my love of being creative with others.
I pride myself on being a calming presence on your day. I am there for you not just as a photographer but as someone you can rely on if you need something (of course I'm not quite a wizard so my magic only goes so far, haha).
I can be a little awkward, I love corny jokes, I am very chill, I love tattoos, I dye my own hair (at minimum twice a year), I will most likely be blasting some sort of heavy metal or techno song on my way to your session, and I often get lost in my own thoughts. My hobbies have made me into a bit of an adrenaline junkie. My typical ‘relaxing’ day has my partner and I either at the dirt bike track or out on the mountain bike trails. I always find myself chasing new challenges in life, always looking for news skills to learn.
Side note: Cake, ice-cream, or orange chocolate will instantly make you favourite human being, hands down. I am also always down for a good bubble tea. Up for a Boba date?
