Jacklyn’s edge lies in her unique ability to engage and connect with people on a level that delves beyond the surface and into the deeper realm of energy and emotion. This comes, in part, from her extensive travels and immersion in foreign cultures with extended stays overseas in Italy and Australia. After earning degrees in both fine arts and environmental chemistry, she followed her passion and added her intense voice with her inherent air of hyper-realism to the photography world.
Since she started JAGstudios 14 years ago, her photography has brought her to stunning locations throughout the Unites States and around the world from the Maldives to Iceland, Europe to Belize. Her work has been featured in numerous printed publications including the first gay wedding in Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine and the cover stories of Rangefinder, Destination Wedding Magazine, Cake & Whiskey, and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style New England. Digitally, her work has appeared in over 60 different online publications such as Esquire, Insider, World’s Best Wedding Photos, and Carats + Cake.
Jacklyn has a deep desire to share her love of photography with over 10 years experience educating photographers throughout the world. Jacklyn has taught at over 40 engagements including The Wedding School, WPPI, Foundation Conference, BodaF Mexico, and Canada Photo Convention. Amongst the top photographers in the world, she’s also been honored with numerous awards in Fearless Photographers, Master’s of Wedding Photography, ISPWP, Junebug Weddings, and PDN Top Knot’s Contest.
Along with all this, Jacklyn’s strong belief in conscious living has motivated her to use eco-friendly principles throughout her business. This passion for green photography has made her a valuable resource in the photographic community as studios and businesses become more environmentally aware.
Jacklyn loves to travel, be outdoors, sushi, music, good friends, fine wine… and her partner-in-crime, Chris.
