An International Wedding in Beacon: Domenica & Rob

One of my favorite things to learn about my clients is how they met and fell in love.  I’ve had clients who have met at work, online, at bars, through friends.  I had one bride who was carried out of a burning building by her future groom; a groom who used to coach his would-be bride in youth basketball; a bride and groom who – years into their relationship – discovered each other in their preschool photo.  So often, when I hear those stories, I think to myself: what are the>>

Rainbow Wedding Photos: Suzanne & Chris

Suzanne & Chris were married at FEAST at Round Hill in Suzanne’s home town (and mine!), Washingtonville, New York.  Their ceremony was short, sweet, and full of laughter, in the back garden beneath a sprawling oak tree.  As the sun was setting, guests mingled on the beautiful porches filling their plates with goods from the raw bar, and Brian and I took Suzanne and Chris for a few quiet photos in a neighboring field. A wedding day is made up of a lot of moving parts coming together;>>

A Stylish Beacon Wedding: Toni + Mike

Sean and I photographed this wedding together at the Roundhouse, which is one giant, beautifully windowed venue just a factory building over from where our new shop & studio are. I’m so happy that we’ve been there a few times this year, because not only is it beautiful, but the food is amazing, and the staff is made up of a LOT of people I know – all of which makes it one of my favorite Hudson Valley venues.  The best thing about this wedding were Toni & Mike, though.>>

What People Are Saying…

2014-05-09_0017 Jackie was such a pleasant vendor to work with!  She replied quickly to any questions or concerns I had during the planning process (which was great because we lived overseas) and she has such a fun personality!  The photos she took were absolutely BEAUTIFUL! She made us feel completely comfortable and natural in front of the camera.  The photos she took at our wedding are candid and show how much fun absolutely everyone was having at our wedding.  I would choose her to photograph our wedding again because she made the experience so wonderful.  Thank you Jackie!!!!!

Can we say GOOSEBUMPS!?!!! WOWZA!! I AM SO EXCITED I FOUND OUR PHOTOGRAPHER FOR LIFE! In all seriousness, this photo made me cry..I knew you would be able to give us the beautiful photos I have dreamt of and having you feel like family on the first day of meeting you was a dream come true. I knew I was not going to settle for just anyone to capture our moments but for some odd reason, even though I never met you, never knew anyone who shot with you, didn’t even look at any reviews actually…just felt so right. I knew you were something special Jackie, and I am so blessed that I have met a beautiful heart and person like you. Can’t wait to see the rest, my mouth is still open from amazement!

2014-12-05_0033Oh, how I wish there were more stars to give! My husband and I were beyond satisfied with the service and pictures from JacPfef. Jackie was very easy to reach by e-mail, telephone, and text whenever I had a question and guided us through creating a timeline of events for the day. She just seems to think of everything and made the whole process before the big day so much easier! Jackie is reliable, creative, professional, friendly, and has a way of making everyone feel at ease and comfortable. She was able to get some extraordinary shots of the bridal party getting ready without us feeling like we were even being photographed. This led to some beautiful and fun candid shots! That’s another thing I loved about Jackie, she is really able to just capture the moment rather than focusing on posed and choreographed shots (although she did those too and they are amazing!). The pictures she and her second shooter took at the ceremony and reception allow us to relive the day whenever we look at them! Our wedding day seemed to go so fast and I was amazed to see some of the things that we had missed, but it’s all there in the photographs! I can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve gotten about our wedding pictures in addition to how fun and professional Jackie was while taking them! She also sent a link of over 2,000 photos that I was able to download and then share with all of our family and friends which was an added bonus! I cannot say enough about how pleased we are to have chosen Jackie as our photographer. We will cherish our photos for a lifetime!
