Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am Jackie Guidi, a journalistic wedding and lifestyle photographer, based in Northern California. My passion is capturing emotions through fresh, fun imagery, and I love it when people see themselves in a new light through my lens!

Here you'll see all of the fabulous people who've allowed me to do what I love, and occasionally, catch a glimpse into my life with Andrew, our amazing daughter Giuliana, and of course our two furry babies, Sophie and Jack!

Courtney & Greg :: Engagement

It's been a romance in the works for a long time. These two have known each other for years, we're talking all the way back....before they ever had an inkling that one day they'd be each other's soulmates....funny how the universe works! I was thrilled to finally meet Courtney & Greg for their engagement shoot in downtown Orange. We lucked out with beautiful weather, after the threat of rain all week...thankfully we didn't need our contingency plan! I already know Courtney is my kind of bride. She is on top of the wedding plans and cares about the details! Can't wait for their March wedding at the Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach!

Baby Shower :: Napton Twins

BEST. BABY. SHOWER. EVAHHHH!! Melissa and Adam are definitely loved, as are their yet-to-arrive twins, a boy, Chase, and a girl, Kara! Without divulging too many details, these 2 little ones are a long time in the making....and already a dream come true for their Mommy and Daddy! Auntie Sarah and Grandma Laura really threw their hearts and souls into this simply charming shower! No detail was left out. Melissa's sister-in-law Bonnie provided some cute games, and Adam's mom and friend Christa baked some tasty sweet treats! Melissa had a wonderful afternoon surrounded by loving friends and family! It was truly my honor to be able to provide photography for such a deserving couple!

Amazing! Adorable! "Cute" just can't even come close to describing this shower for such a deserving couple, Melissa & Adam. It's been a long time in the making, and more to come later, but here's just a quick sneak peek of the wonderfulness that Melissa's sister Sarah and her mom Laura created, along with help from sister-in-law Bonnie and friend Christa!!

Greer & Eli :: Couple's Shoot

Wow! Long time no post, huh! It's been an amazingly busy summer and only slightly less busy fall for me. I've been doing a ton of second shooting this season, and will post about that soon, as our season is about to come to an end! Speaking of which...I know I shouldn't complain, but this crazy warm SOCAL weather is killin' me! I'm ready for some cooler fall temps, but definitely don't envy our friends in Boston...they were already buried by the first storm of the season!

Anywhoo! Last nite my friend Greer (see her smoking' hot boudoir shots here) and her boyfriend Eli celebrated a special anniversary with a little photoshoot! Everybody deserves to have wonderful pics of themselves, engaged, married or not! Thanks for asking me to shoot these, and I'll be watching my mailbox for a holiday card featuring a picture or two from this shoot!
