Jackie was an honorary sixth bridesmaid, and her service was above and beyond. Your biggest mistake would be to NOT hire Jackie. She is instrumental in making your wedding the day you’ve always dreamed of.

My husband and I got married in Buffalo in July 2018, but we live in Maryland so didn't actually meet her in-person until the wedding day. She held calls with us whenever we needed them, at which point she walked us through the timeline and how to work with other vendors. On the big day, she put everyone at ease, but she also had contingency plans and kept the entire day flowing perfectly, which is no easy feat with families as large as ours.
I can't even tell you how many guests approached us to tell us how great Jackie is (which I think doesn't happen often with other photographers?), and my mother actually said "I'm sure she has a great family, but can she join ours?" and still wants her to come over for dinner.
Going into my boudoir session with Jackie, I did it with the purpose of a romantic gift for my husband but it would become so much more. It was a beautiful hour of self discovery and appreciation for myself.
If I could tell myself how I would feel after my session, it would be this: you're going to feel empowered. You'll embrace the curves of your body. You'll love the skin you're in. You'll glow with confidence when you walk by a mirror and catch a glimpse of yourself. With the upbeat playlist to get you in the groove and help you loosen up, you'll soon forget that you're being photographed and just begin living your best life.
A year and a half later, that confidence I gained hasn't left.
