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!

Baby Dean :: Family Portraits

Remember this adorable shower? Well, Baby Dean has joined the world, and he is too adorable for words!! I was honored when mom Lisa asked me to take some pictures of the new arrival, who wasn't quite so new by the time we were able to get something scheduled. He and big brother Dillon were so well-behaved that day, given that they were pretty pooped from a week-long family wedding! And I love how coordinated the outfits are...Mom had on some amazing Christian Louboutins!

Note: The first 3 images were taken when I went back to visit Dean 2 weeks later....can you believe how much he's grown?!!

Just Sophie :: Personal

Today I found this image of our 2nd dog, Sophie, on my hard drive, in a folder I haven't looked at in months. She is standing on our patio at our Texas house....the weather looks similar here in Orange County today. Sophie is a funny dog....she will always let me take her picture, while Jack, on the other hand, will bury his head or turn away every. single. time. He has some sort of 6th sense about the camera, I swear, even my iPhone camera! We miss that house and our TX friends, but are enjoying life in SOCAL again!

Busy weekend ahead for me....stay tuned!

Ken & Laura :: Anniversary Party

This party was AH-MAZ-ING!! My friend Melissa, her husband, and her siblings helped plan a surprised 30th Anniversary party for Melissa's parents, and it went off without a hitch! No details were left out....there was a vow renewal, bar, cake, food, and even a candy buffet, in coordinating colors, of course!! Ken and Laura had NO idea the party was for them, they thought we were meeting to do some family pictures, and they were shocked to see their closest family and friends waiting for them when they walked through the door! It was truly an honor for me to witness it all! Congrats to Ken and Laura!!!
