About this pro

How does your service stand out?

"It is clear from everything that you love what you do and it has nothing to do with money or fame. You went above and beyond on everything." - Previous Client

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Each client is a new friend. I love getting together, coaxing smiles from my subjects, being silly, and as a result of the hours I invest in debating which images make my client look their best, editing to make their true self show through, and then putting it all together in a slideshow that tells their story, creates a fondness, and hopefully lasting friendship, with everyone I have the opportunity to photograph.

    My wife and I could not have been happier with Jacquelyn from the outset. She was communicative, open and helpful. Once the big weekend came she was fully committed without ever being disruptive of the event. We would recommend her to anyone without reservation.

    Very pleased with the service by Jacquelyn Cease. She is a very pleasant and thoughtful person and easy to work with. The pictures of my daughters wedding turned out beautiful. I was, as well as my daughter very impressed with her abilities to capture the moments. I would definitely recommend her for any occasion. I honestly cannot say anything negative about our experience.

    Jacquelyn was great in working with us for our engagement photos and went out of her way to help fit us in on short notice which we really appreciated. She made us feel extremely comfortable and we were really happy with the quick turn around getting our photos back as well as the quality of the photos.

    This was honestly the most fun I have had getting pictures taken. Normally I don't let my emotions show and it's just the standard smile and such but Jacquelyn made the experience great and made my best friend and I comfortable enough to be our goofy selves!!

    Thank you Victoria! It was a blast!

    Jacquelyn has been our photographer for four different sessions. We have loved her work every time. We are getting ready to schedule our fifth session with her. She worked hard to get the best poses and pictures possible and tried to make the poses that we wanted work. We have used her for maternity, newborn, and family photo shoots. She gets the photos to us very quickly.

    Jacquelyn was very professional, fun, experienced, and you get more than your moneys worth. My son took to her and was very comfortable so it made our pictures outstanding. Her angles and lighting are amazing. She had us very pleased and we will be returning to her. She also does amazing photo prints, we are very thrilled and love how they came out, the pictures she took are the best we have had taken, we had so much fun and I'am more than certain you will be pleased with her. Thanks again Jaquelyn! You are awesome.

    Jacquelyn was my senior picture photographer and I made an amazing choice! Not only did I get outstanding pictures, but I had a really good time at the session. She is super fun and relatable. I was worried it would be awkward, but she was so sweet I had an amazing time! I would go back and have her be my photographer for everything :))

    We hired Jacquelyn as our wedding photographer. She took the time to determine our preferrences and spent a great deal of time and effort setting up various locations, poses and lighting to accomplish the best look - first by doing our engagement photos, then the wedding itself. Our photos are beautiful!! We would absolutely use her again for any portraits or special occasions and are delighted to recommend her to others.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is completely simple and online. I give you high resolution, edited images, on a photo cd to use as you need. You are welcome to order enlargements from me, or through your favorite print lab. I have wedding collections, outlined on my website, and am happy to tailor your collections to fit your needs (within reason).
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I absolutely love reading, so I buy photography books and work through them, practicing with my camera as I go. I watch educational courses on CreativeLive, take notes, and try new techniques all the time. I do my homework prior to a session, follow local photographers that I admire, and encourage my clients to share their ideas to make their session unique.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I enjoy every moment behind my camera, but my favorites wedding, are engagement, maternity, newborn, and senior portrait sessions.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check out your photographers work. Is it your style? Is there anything that bothers you about their pictures? Can you see quality and taste in the pictures? Are they offering a reasonable and competitive price? Are they within your budget? If you can, meet them or talk to them by phone. Are they comfortable and friendly? Do they make you smile and look forward to spending time with them? Are they looking forward to working with you? I wish you the best in finding the photographer that's perfect for you! Good luck and God bless you!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Great images take time. Most couples that I meet with initially say that they would like mostly candid photographs on their wedding day, and many couples initially shy away from a "First Look" (a private meeting of the bride and groom prior to the ceremony, followed by portraits). I would love for my clients to come in knowing that my goal is to use my experience to help make their wedding day smooth and unhurried. While I'm happy to wait to take bride and groom portraits until after the ceremony, most often the bride and groom feel pressed to get to the reception so their guests are not kept waiting. The First Look is beautiful and romantic, without the intimidation of being "on-stage" in front of all of your guests the first time you lay eyes on each other, and allows us time to relax and get great images of the bride and groom.
