The JC Bride Experience
Creating beautiful memories
I am a visual storyteller and love the story of love. My goal is to tell your love story, the real story, by creating and capturing real memories throughout your best day ever. Whether it's the first look or when you are finally putting on that gorgeous wedding dress with all your girls around you, I will build in time to help curate these beautiful memories that you can look back on for years to come.
KEEPING YOU IN THE KNOW
You've been to weddings and you've seen that behind the scenes action, like bridal party shots, but now it's your turn, and frankly, there's way more things to do than you ever imagined. Even though it can feel like a full time job, just remember, you are not obligated to know everything about weddings. That's why it's important to hire a team of wedding professionals who have your back. From creating a photography timeline to providing you with tips on how to prepare for your wedding day, I will help be a guiding light for you throughout this special time!
GETTING TO KNOW YOU
JC Bride's are so much fun! Which is why I spend so much time getting to know you off camera. They love to laugh and they love those sweet romantic moments they get to share with just their partner (are you already saying absolutely yes to sunset husband and wife sunset portraits?). And let's face it, having your most intimate moments be in front of a camera can be a bit daunting and unnatural. From start to finish, I will be there to guide you through the experience and coach you into poses that flatter as well as hold that sacred space for those candid moments that I love so so much. All you need to do is be yourself, laugh a lot, and most importantly, be here now.

As Seen On
Hi there! I'm Jax.
I am a romantic with intense wanderlust. When I'm not photographing love stories, helping clients plan for their financial futures, or spreading the good word about creating a non-toxic home, I am spending time with my family.
The reason I photograph weddings is because I believe that strong marriages have the ability to change lives for generations. Marriage is a powerful ritual, and I want to help that positivity ripple out into our world, however that looks like.
As your wedding photographer, I aim to nurture your relationship on-camera and off-camera. I love hanging out with my couples before your wedding day, whether that is grabbing artisanal ice cream in Little Italy or going on a hike in Lake Hodges.
However we get to know each other, my goal is to be more than just your photographer.
I'm very excited to get to connect with you!
