It's not about the perfect poses in the perfect setting. It's about capturing a moment, a feeling, details that will fade with time, preserving the impermanent things. Leaving a legacy.
I truly care for my clients. I want to get to know you both on a level that feels more like a friendship rather than a vendor/client relationship. I love hearing about how you met and got engaged, what you two do on a Saturday night and Sunday morning, what moments you're looking forward to most on your wedding day, what you envision your day to be like and how you're incorporating unique aspects to reflect you as a couple. Connection is imperative to the process.
I want you to feel excited about us creating something magical together and comfortable enough to let go, be yourself, and be fully present in the moment. I won't make you do anything you wouldn't normally do, no cheesy prompts/poses, just a fun, laidback experience to make real memories. I do my absolute best to make you feel comfortable, but the more you're willing to open up the better the experience will be and your photos will be proof of that.
I know this is likely the first time you've ever planned a wedding, and having done it myself I know how stressful it can be. With 8 years of experience photographing weddings/elopements I know what works, what doesn't and how to adapt when things don't go as planned. I will help you put together an efficient timeline and give you a list of all the best vendors in NM. Whatever it may be I'm here for you.
"If I can give one piece of advice to anyone regarding wedding planning, it is to book Jac as your photographer. Not only is she spectacular at what she does but she is such a kind, warm, and beautiful person and truly cares about making you feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She is professional and prompt at everything she does and really made this a one of a kind experience. She is such a light and it was such a privilege to work with her! ❤️"
"Jaclynn is truly the best- without a doubt! She is super sweet, professional, and makes you feel so comfortable in front of a camera. She’s actually the only photographer we considered after we saw her photos. Words cannot describe how incredibly talented, detailed, and passionate she is about the work she does. I could not be happier with our engagement and wedding photos. So thankful to her for capturing our day so perfectly. I could not recommend Jac Dodge Photography enough!!"
"Jac was an INCREDIBLE find. Not only is she just lovely to have around on your special day, her photos are spectacular. She's so thoughtful about what she captures, and made sure to get every. single. shot we really wanted. She even managed to sneak us up to the rooftop of our venue mid-reception to make sure she snapped some photos of us with the full moon! I couldn't recommend her highly enough."
