Jackie Wonders is this week’s Macro Monday featured photographer. Jackie is based out of San Diego, where she specializes in lifestyle wedding and portrait photography filled with Vintage-Modern Romance.
Here’s a little info from Jackie …
“What I love most about my job is Getting to *truly* bless and make my clients happy with creating images that are, really, their first family heirlooms :) Weddings are one of the most important, significant, emotional and meaningful days of your life and I GET TO document that! Knowing that my clients trust me to be there with them, every moment of the day, is a true and humbling honor.
Just so I don’t sound like everyone else, I didn’t always know that I loved photography. There, I said it. It kind of hit me about 7-8 years ago that I wanted to pick up a camera and just start shooting. So, since then, that’s pretty much what has happened! And, after getting my first DSLR from my sweet, sweet husband, I forced my close friends to by my muses, of course they loved getting pictures out of it :) And, that is how I built my portfolio.“
Today we have Ian and Shannon’s engagement shoot from Jackie – who just adores this couple! “Ian & Shannon are two incredibly kind and sweet people. One of the first words that come to mind when i think of them is: Givers. Shannon is the girl that will get to a friend’s party 2 hours early to help set-up, assemble, clean up, etc. She’s just that loving and caring. Ian is a firefighter in downtown San Diego. So, as you can imagine, his job is incredibly demanding and full of helping people on a daily basis. We decided to shoot downtown since the area is an important part of their life. And, literally as we were walking around shooting, Ian saw his engine drive by!“
Congratulations on your engagement, Ian and Shannon!!
