Couples who choose me love colorful, natural, fun, candid, emotional, personality-bubbling, timeless photography. You've prepared for this momentous occasion months (or years) in advance and I take that seriously. What do you want your grandchildren to say 50 years from now, when they're viewing your wedding photos? I hope it's something like "Wow, Grandpa loved pie so much they didn't even have a wedding cake! Now I know why he always brings the apple pie to Thanksgiving," or "I never met Great Grandma, but I think I get her silly streak from her--look how fun and energetic she was dancing atop a hay bale!"
I lean toward colorful and classic editing because I know that will never go out of style.
A Little About Me
I'm an easy-going, detail-oriented person. I'm not the type to let an e-mail sit unanswered for more than a day and I always prefer to plan things out instead of flying by the seat of my pants. This may seem a bit contradictory since most weddings don't stick to plans, which is where my easy-going nature comes in. :)
I grew up in San Diego and moved to Vermont 5 years ago. While it was a huge change, I find having seasons so FUN! I don't think I can ever go back to an 80 degree, snowman-less Christmas. I love adventurous activities like white water rafting, snowboarding, and roller coasters. Whenever technology finally allows us to fulfill the age-old question "What magical ability would you choose?" my answer is totally going to be flying. If I could get past the imminent threat of death, I would be learning how to wingsuit fly right now.
When I'm not outside, you can find me watching the latest TV or movie release or reading my favorite home improvement and decorating blogs. Current TV favorites: The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Jane the Virgin, Gilmore Girls (yay Netflix revival!), and guilty pleasure America's Next Top Model. If you like home improvement, I highly recommend the blogs Chris Loves Julia and Young House Love! I also love pretending to be a fancy chef with Blue Apron meals. It prevents me from eating pasta every night too, which is a plus.
I am located near Burlington, Vermont.
Check me out on Facebook, too! (I put up a lot of sneak peeks of my current work there)

Beautiful photos from Jaclyn
I found Jaclyn's work and really liked her style. We ended up having her do our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. She was awesome to work with. Her communication was perfect, and she was very open to our ideas and thoughts about the photos and the process.Sent on 12/15/2018
On the day of the wedding with all of the hectic craziness going on, Jaclyn was there, but she didn't add an ounce of stress to the day!!! Of course we had all of the posed photos with family, but the rest of the photos were candid. She was never in the way, and we honestly barely noticed her throughout the reception or ceremony. She managed to get absolutely perfect, beautiful photos of our day. I couldn't be happier with our choice to hire her!!

Not only has Jaclyn created beautiful memories for us to have of our wedding day, but she put everyone at ease and was able to capture the most relaxed and genuine moments. We are so thankful for all of the wonderful work that Jaclyn has done!Sent on 10/27/2018

Jaclyn was great! We had a giant wedding party (11 on each side!) and did a first look along the waterfront in Burlington. She helped us plan out the entire day to make sure that we got the shots we wanted and was super flexible. It was hectic having such a large wedding party and large families on both sides but Jaclyn was super organized and efficient. We got all the perfect shots we wanted (and more!) and she accommodated any requests we made on the day. Plus the accents of the day (the arbor, flowers, etc) were all captured perfectly and artistically. She's extremely experienced and skilled. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a stellar photographer!Sent on 03/21/2019
