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 want to get to know you! I love hearing about how you and your partner met and got engaged, what you like to do on a Saturday night/Sunday morning, what moments you're looking forward to most on your wedding day, what you envision your photos to be like and what is most important to you. Everyone has different stories, different interests and I want to get to know them so I can document your moments in the most intentional, true-to-you, way possible.
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. This is why I love creating a custom experience with each client based of your style, interests, and unique vision and communicate with you so you know exactly what to expect. Even if you don't have a specific vision in mind I know how to gauge the mood and adapt as needed.
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 9 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."
Once you fill out the inquiry form I will be reaching out to set up a day and time for us to meet and chat about your vision. If we decide we're a good fit I'll send over a proposal that breaks down everything so you know exactly what you're investing into and a contract to make it official! Your date is only locked in once that contract and retainer are received.
It's time for us to create some dreamy photos! I will send a short questionnaire for you to fill out and/or ask for a mood board so I can get to know more about you and what you have envisioned. For weddings we will also have a quick follow-up call to work through all the details so you can be stress-free the day of and I can have everything I need to make sure your day goes smoothly.
Photo delivery time! I will send you some sneak peeks to share and/or privately enjoy while you wait for the final gallery. I aim to have weddings finished in 4-6 weeks and portrait sessions finished in 2-4 weeks. Once that final gallery is delivered you will be able to download all the images, share the gallery with family/friends, and print your favorites.
