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!

Kate & Kyle :: Wedding

Who says social media is just for looking up old high school friends and playing Mafia Wars or Farmville? It was thru Facebook that I connected with Christine Bentley, probably 3 years ago or so, 2008, when I got my first camera and started following my own wedding photographer on Facebook. Christine was one of her friends, so I friended her too.

I feel honored to have this amazing opportunity to second shoot with Christine, and I know when my time comes, I will be paying it forward in a similar manner!

Now for the goods…as every post is better with pictures! This is from the first wedding I shot with Christine, at Miramonte Resort in Indian Wells. It was blazing hot, and my poor pinky toes paid the price with a total of 3 blisters, but here are a few images from Kate and Kyle’s big day!

Rachel G :: Boudoir

I met Rachel thru a mutual friend and make-up artist, Tiffany Georskey of Make Up Your Event. Rachel was vacationing here from Idaho with her long-time boyfriend, so we took advantage of her hotel for the shoot. Funny how you can hardly tell this was a "family-oriented" hotel in the Disney area! The pictures were supposed to be a surprise for Shane, but he found out! He was a good sport thou, and made himself scarce during the shoot, so the pictures will still be somewhat of a surprise for him! Hope he loves them!
