Hey, I’m Jaclyn 🙂
It’s hard for me to say what I love *most* about photography, because there’s a lot of things I love about it. I do have to say though, having the ability to basically make time stand still – that’s pretty high up on my list. It’s almost like I have a superpower! Being able to freeze and save some of the most amazing and monumental moments in your life, it’s a pretty awesome feeling for me. Because even for my own photos, I love going through them again and again – reliving those moments. Growing up, I obsessively took photos everywhere I went and of everyone I loved. I couldn’t help it, it’s a part of who I am.
To me though, photography is more than just “freezing” what you see with your eyes. It’s capturing a feeling – an emotion. So that when you look back on that photo, you feel something. You recall how you felt in that moment… or, you are moved to feel something despite not being at that exact place in time when the photo was taken. That’s a real photograph.
The best reasoning I can come up with as to why I have always had a passion for photos is this – I’m a visual person. I love things that are beautiful and I could stare at them and observe them for hours… I’m also a creative person. I love stimulating my creativity and imagination behind the camera for everything I photograph, creating these captures of emotion and sense of place. It even continues behind the computer screen where I strive to make every image come to life in a vivid, unique, and beautiful way… My aim is to capture people as they are. Not just their appearance – but their personality, their essence, and their love. Everything that makes them who they are in the most beautiful form.
Weddings are insanely amazing! So much love, beauty, and emotion all wrapped up into a single day of your life – a day you want to relive countless times for decades to come. I want to capture and save those memories for you.
