Meet Jaclyn //

 

I have my bachelors degree from Brooks Institute of Photography.

Road trips are one of my favorite past times.

I have a huge appreciation for "the good ole days" and convey that by photographing vintage cars, collecting vinyl records, and purchasing instant film on the regular. Infact you can find my vintage car finds on instagram at #ibreakforvintagecars

I am very close to my family and many of them are some of my best friends.

I am a California Native but dream about moving to Paris one day, I studied there briefly and loved it.

Before I knew I wanted to make photography my career I was working on getting my psychology degree and feel like that has helped me understand and communicate with my clients. 

I have been traveling to Maui ever since I was a little girl, my uncle lives there and I would love to travel there for work more often (Hawaii based brides contact me!)

I love photography because it pushes me to be more extroverted and use my sensitivity and creativity in one whole package.

What people are saying //

"I have shot with Jaclyn numerous times, and each time gets better and better. She makes me feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and all of our shoots have a gentle, free-flowing way about them. She is very calm, which then puts me at ease and makes me feel relaxed. We always have fun at our shoots; we joke around and laugh, and it ends up feeling like I’m spending time with my best friend." -Lilly Cottrell

'My husband and I were lucky enough to meet Jaclyn through a fellow photographer friend based in Santa Barbara. She came highly recommended and after speaking with her, we knew she was the perfect person to capture our special day. Jaclyn made our wedding day that much more enjoyable. It was an intimate wedding with twenty-five guests. Jaclyn instantly became part of our family - everyone loved her! Since then, our friends and family have continued to praise her work and because of her, we can fall in love with that day over and over again. Not only did Jaclyn create stunning photographs that we will cherish forever, but she made our experience effortless. It was an honor to have her photograph us and a pleasure to connect with such a talented and kind soul.' - Scott & Julie Gaddis

"We have worked with Jaclyn on maternity and family photo shoots. All I can say is I wish we would have met her before we were married to do our engagement and wedding. She is very professional, but also personable and comfortable to be around and she is great with kids.None of our photo sessions have turned out the same... she has great ideas on locations and is willing to work with any vision you may have. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer for a variety of occasions!" - The Smith Family

  "I hired Jaclyn to photograph my wedding, and I am so happy I did! Working with Jaclyn and her assistant Eric was simply a dream. They were so friendly and personable. They created a space and experience that was devoid of stress or pressure. I met with Jaclyn weeks prior to the event to review the venue and discuss photo locations. She was not only punctual and professional, but she was truly interested in who we were as people, and the emotions behind the event we were about to host. On the day of the event, she was the best! She was flexible when timing changed and assertive, in the friendliest of ways, about getting certain shots we had discussed. I was beyond pleased with the experience. Our photo package included a photo book, which is my favorite! Some of our family was unfortunately unable to attend the wedding. I shared the photo book with them, and they all said they felt like they were there after looking through it. Jaclyn and Eric did such a wonderful job in capturing the joy, love, intimacy and fun of the event through their photographs. As my life with my husband grows and evolves, I know that we will be hiring Jaclyn again and again to document all our future life events!" - Brittany and Galen Brazell
