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!

Blogged by a blogger!

....and not just ANY blogger....one of THE bloggers of all bloggers, Ree Drummond, better known to some as "The Pioneer Woman!"

The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, has an award-winning prolific blog you MUST follow...it includes a "cooking" category, as well as "confessions" and "photography"....she is not a PRO photographer, but an amazingly good picture-taker, she has hundreds of thousands of followers....she just released her first cookbook....we've made many of her recipes and they never let us down...

Anyhoo....from time to time she accepts submissions for various topics/photographic techniques....this "assignment" was for b&w photos....and she chose my image as one of a bunch she chooses to highlight!!

you can see it here, under "YOUR black & whites - Part 2" http://thepioneerwoman.com/photography/, scroll down quite a ways, and you'll see a photo of two people with a football between their feet....you can also see the image here, but you'll miss her witty comment!:

if you're not already a follower, bookmark her page and check it often...i don't know how she keeps it up....with 4 kids she homeschools too!

So thank you PW....even if I don't win a prize, it was, as they say, an honor just to be nominated!

Tiffany & Wiley :: Engagement Part III

Yep, you read correctly...Part III...Tiffany and Wiley decided they wanted to do 2 mini-engagement sessions instead of doing it all in one day....you can see their urban shoot here and here, and this is their "Nature" shoot. It was a cold and windy day here in TX, but you can hardly tell in the pictures....T & W...you guys were troopers, especially Tiffany, wearing short sleeves! And Wiley, if you caught a cold, I hope these make it worth it! I'm so excited for their wedding in January!
