Hi, I'm Jaclyn
Since 2009, I have a continual passion for photography. I am not your typical wedding and freelance photographer. I do my own personal photographic work along side my wedding work and I enjoy them both immensely. In fact, my wedding photography work is inextricably influenced by the fine-art world. I attended school at VCU, and received my BFA in Photography & Film in 2013. I am currently working on my MFA in Photography at the University of Hartford, and continuing living in Richmond, VA.
While studying so many masters of photography at both VCU & Hartford, I have had the pleasure of working with and becoming friends with some really talented photographers. I am a lover of art & photography, and it’s a huge part of my life. I married my amazing husband, Joshua in October of 2011, and I am so thankful for his love and support.
Other than photography, I love: traveling, museums, 16th century european art, modern art, long car trips in the summer with lots of photo stops along the way, independent films, the Harry Potter series, board games, D&D, knitting, iced chai, hand-making books, oddities, and thrifting in my favorite store in Richmond.. Fan Thrift.

My Wedding Philosophy
A wedding is one of the few times in many people’s lives where they will commission artistic documentation of their life. This art is personal and intimate. The photographer's images become the singular vision that you remember this important day by. You'll look through your photographs years later and remember that your dear friend flew all the way from Florida to Virginia to attend your wedding, or what your husband's face looked like the first time he saw you in your wedding gown walking down the aisle on the most perfect of days. It's a serious task; one I do not take lightly, and one that as a photographer you have to handle with boldness and gentleness at the same time. This art will tell the story of you, your family, and friends at a particular moment in your lives. From getting ready, to the vows, first dance, and the crazy dance party ;) I work closely with couples to document their whole wedding adventure and create art that tells their story.
I try to express your wedding day through modern, clean, and fine-art-inspired imagery. I love meeting and working with new and fun-loving people to photograph one of the happiest times of their life. In short, if you value those things like I do, I think we'd make a killer team and create even better photographs together.
