Can we get real for a sec?

You deserve to get hitched any damn way you please.

You love to adventure and explore. You live life in the front seat. You’re not afraid to get a little dirty and throw the rule book out the window. Your love story is anything but ordinary or traditional—who says your wedding has to be?! Planning a large wedding can quickly become a stressful performance rather than a meaningful experience. But your wedding is about more than Pinterest-worthy centerpieces and fancy cakes: it’s the start of your marriage—the ultimate adventure you’ll ever embark on in this life! 

I’m here to tell you it is possible to plan a wedding day that’s 100% true to who you are, and a hell of a lot of fun too.

So throw your hands up— ‘Cuz we’re about to make your wedding one hell of a moment to remember.

A wedding day can go by

 a pottery class!

White dress or ripped jeans,
I’m always down to photograph
your love. Engagement sessions

practice for the big day!

Kind words from rad couples

Jacque was able to deliver in every way. 

Jacque was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. For our engagement pictures, I wanted to work with someone who is familiar with Yosemite and would be able to capture my fiancé’s and I in a natural form. Jacque was able to deliver in every way. She was flexible when the road to Taft Point was closed due to weather conditions and came up with a second plan for us. Fortunately, everything worked out and the road opened just in time for our session.

Hiking to Taft Point with Jacque and her pal felt like hiking with friends. I enjoyed our conversations and appreciated the support Jacque provided both Ben and I when posing for the camera. Jaqcue’s photography skills are self-evident. I am very pleased with the shots she captured and the editing done to make our pictures perfect! I look forward to working with her again for our wedding!

Jacque goes up and beyond for her clients.

I found Jacque on social media in 2019 and I haven’t hired any other photographer for our special moments. Jacque goes up and beyond for her clients. My first session with her was amazing and I haven’t looked back ever since. She is so easy going and friendly. She also tries to make you so comfortable.

She played music to help us relax and I totally forgot that I had a camera in front of me. I just felt that I was in my love bubble and the pictures showed it. I had the privilege of having her capture my wedding last year. Those pictures are magazine worthy . I can’t stress this enough to everyone Jacque has a special eye on capturing love. She is beyond professional and is such a perfectionist. I can’t recommend her enough every chance I get!
