About

Hello! I'm Jackie. I love to see you smile! I am a wedding photographer in Central Illinois. I am married to my husband, Doug who I told after only 3 dates that I was going to marry him. Lucky me - he didn't run away! When you know you know! We have been married for 6 years and have a 3 year old son, Hunter. I love spending my days off in the summer on our ski boat. Some things I am addicted to - TOMS shoes (You'll always catch me in a pair at your wedding), Luke Bryan (Proud member of his fan club!), Diet Coke, Oreos, Mochas, Old Chicago Pizza, and proud alumni of SIU - Go Salukis!

I have been in business for 6 years. I went to school for photography at SIU and learned the fine art of developing my own film, printing and using old school cameras. I think this is what stands out from my work - I am traditional in a sense that I want to capture true emotion/feeling. I don't do the filters, props, or the set ups. It's all about capturing you! I started shooting weddings when a friend was getting married and ask if I would do it for her. I shot her wedding and I was hooked. I loved the excitement of the day. I wanted to be a documentary photographer while at SIU and I think this has been the best adventure. I seriously love weddings. I enjoy those moments when you start to get ready putting on your dress. Two of my favorite things to capture in a wedding is the moment you see each other and the moment you walk down the aisle. Those are usually my favorite images of the day. I would love to sit down and have coffee with you and hear about your day you have planned!

Jackie was amazing! From the second we met Jackie for our engagement photos, we knew we picked the right photographer. She was so sweet and made us feel so comfortable that it was like taking pictures with a friend you have known for years. She was so helpful and great about keeping in touch leading up to the wedding. The day of she was great at keeping pictures moving and making everyone feel comfortable. She checked to ensure we had all the pictures we wanted before the reception and again before she left. We received our pictures extremely fast! We had our preview shortly after getting back from our honeymoon and the rest our photos were ready soon after that. We would definitely recommend Jackie to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
