What happy clients are saying…
“Thank you so much! The photos you took were great! They’re getting me a lot of matches on Tinder”—Happy Male Client, San Francisco
“I have always struggled to feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. Jacqueline made the experience so easy for me! She is an amazing photographer and an absolute pleasure to work with! We joked and laughed, and had so much fun! I felt like myself and my pictures reflected this. Thank you so much for my photos. I LOVE them!! I really enjoyed working with you. I had such a fun day! I’ll definitely recommend you to all my friends.”—Nichole, San Jose
“I contacted Jacqueline to update my online dating photos. Taking pictures is not a natural thing for me so I thought it best to outsource to a professional. The biggest thing about my experience with Jacqueline is how natural she made me feel in an uncomfortable environment. I really appreciated her attitude during the photoshoot and the pictures came out fantastic. I couldn’t be more happy with the experience.”—Josh, Alameda
“Beyond impressive… Jacqueline is the best! I had worked with a photographer to get online dating photos not long ago, and I am SO much happier with Jacqueline’s photos. Also, the experience was a blast! I had a great time during the photoshoot. I was well prepared, Jacqueline did a fantastic job of guiding me on what to wear, and brainstorm about what to bring, and on creative locations to photograph. She also helped me feel relaxed, which is critical to getting good photos. What a positive experience all-around, I highly recommend working with Jacqueline!” —Colin, San Francisco
“Everything about working with Jacqueline was fabulous! She is extremely professional and so easy to work with… from the initial phone call to set a date, to my final photos that included both LinkedIn headshots and social media photos. I am SO happy that I found Jacqueline. I felt so comfortable during the photo shoot. Jacqueline was great at choosing a spot that gave the portraits dynamic backgrounds and was also so helpful in helping me figure out what clothing and jewelry I brought would look best in the photos.”— Lily, Brooklyn
“The shoot was effortless and the photos turned out great. Jacqueline is an amazingly talented photographer and rock-solid professional! I highly recommend her and her services. As someone who tends to freeze up in front of cameras, photoshoots can be stressful. But Jacqueline did an awesome job of making the shoot relaxed and effortless. Between shots, we chatted about anything and everything, which really helped take my mind off of the camera and just enjoy the moment. As a result, the photos she delivered feel natural and editorial. Looks like I have some new profile pictures for LinkedIn and Instagram!”— Kurt M., San Jose
“I hired Jacqueline to take photos for my online dating profiles. Before our scheduled time, Jacqueline gave me some terrific pointers on what kind of clothes to wear for the shoot. We discussed which types of shots would work best to show my personality so it would show through in the pictures. We took a variety of photos inside and out at different locations. Jacqueline has a great ability to make the shoot fun and enjoyable so you appear relaxed and confident in the pictures.
When I got the pictures back I was very impressed. I do not photograph well yet Jacqueline was able to make me look sharp in the photos. A couple of the pictures were truly outstanding, even my friends thought they were great.”— Mark, Hawyard
“I wanted some good photos for my dating profile. All my photos were old, and the newer ones were selfies or group shots. None of these would work. I didn’t want professional or staged photos, so at a certain point, I was ready to have a friend walk around and take photos with my cell phone …but I wanted really GOOD photos. I’m very picky, but it’s hard for me to feel relaxed when someone is taking my photo.
I decided to try Yelp. I skipped all the photographers who did great work, but their shots looked over-produced and looked “paid for”. I skipped over others because the pics looked really awkward and posed. Then I found Jacqueline’s page. Her website had what I was looking for. Not just one, but many shots that were not only gorgeous but natural. I was still a bit nervous but I reached out anyway. Jacqueline responded back right away and within minutes, I felt she knew exactly what I was looking for. She had a few packages to choose from, and I decided to go with a 2-hour session. She offered several choices for the venue, then made some suggestions for clothes, etc.
10 minutes into meeting Jacqueline at a small breakfast cafe, I felt at ease. It was not at all what I expected from a photo session. She made some suggestions and helped me to relax and smile (I tend to look a little sad or angry if I don’t watch myself!). Just little hints and suggestions from Jacqueline, mixed with talking about what I wanted, made time go by quickly. I posed for some shots and many were simply spontaneous as we chatted and roamed around the area. Do you ever have a conversation with someone that just “clicks” and you feel like you could talk all day? This is what happened with Jacqueline… she has a relaxed and fun personality, and she was just “present”. I found myself much more comfortable than even if a friend were taking pics. I also knew right away that she really knew her stuff (lighting, angles, poses). Time flew by and the pics were just getting better and better. My only regret? that there wasn’t a 4-hour package!
Her prices are very reasonable but I would have paid double and still been happy. I’ve already recommended two of my friends see Jacqueline. I can’t help but want to keep her just my little secret, but I would be even happier if I knew I could help others discover her!”— Dan, Oakland
“Jacqueline is Awesome! I was very impressed with her passion, technical skills, and personality. She captured the magic of the moment in our photoshoot, and I love how natural my pictures turned out. I had taken professional headshots before but I was really impressed with Jacqueline’s work. With her focus 100% on me, I felt relaxed, at ease and was truly able to enjoy the experience. The result was a group of photos that were the best and most diverse that I’ve seen of myself. Thank you, Jacqueline, for capturing how I see myself! Also, Jacqueline provides digital images, which was a very important thing to me. Thank you, Jacqueline, for some amazing pictures!”— Katie, Aptos
“Had an amazing session with Jacqueline. She was professional, patient, and fun to work with. The photos came out great. She took the time and spent a few hours with me making sure we get the best photos possible. I will go to her for my future photography needs as well.”— Yousef, San Francis
“Wow, I liked every single photo. That is truly not a small task!! You made me look gorgeous!!! Really never has anyone been able to capture me like that before!! Thank you for taking the time to find the perfect angles and lighting and considering the different types of shots. I love the photos – thanks again so much!!”— Alex, Berkeley
“Jacqueline captured a side of me that made me look fabulous, confident and emulated the exact vibe I was hoping to portray. She is one of those professionals you feel like you’ve known forever and as a client that’s exactly what is necessary in order to have the most genuine of expressions brought out. I worked with her on an extended package and was able to get some really great social media photos including pics for my new business website and a great Instagram profile photo. If you are looking for an online dating photographer, Jacqueline is the person to go to! Her effortless way of making me feel so comfortable on the opposite side of the camera put my mind at ease. As a photographer myself, I am extremely critical of the way the photos should turn out and how I feel while standing in front of the camera. Thank you, Jacqueline!”— Nicole, Napa
“My experience with Jacqueline was so much more than getting a few photos taken. I was surprised at how much fun I had preparing for the session and I loved Jacqueline’s helpful tips in thinking through clothing choices, colors, hair and makeup – it gave me just the prompting I needed to take some time out for myself that day. I really enjoyed that! The session itself was easy and relaxing as Jacqueline draws you into sharing a bit about what the photos will be used for – she’s a natural at coaching and boosting your confidence – so smiles came very easily. Her optimism made a mark on me! Lastly – can’t say enough about the quality of the photos – absolutely love how these turned out!” —Alka, Oakland
“I’m not very comfortable in front of the camera but Jacqueline’s personality put me right at ease. I had a great experience working with Jacqueline for a combination of business headshots and some online dating profile pics. She was equally comfortable with the business shots and the more casual ones – and has a great eye for composition. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional quality shots.”—Christina, Oakland
“I wholeheartedly recommend Jacqueline to anyone looking for social media photos. During the shoot, she knew exactly what to do and worked efficiently to get a variety of different shots. She is patient and outgoing. She made the experience totally fun and comfortable. I had a great time and am so glad I found her. She was awesome.”—Elaine, Walnut Creek
“Jacqueline has an eye for the lighting and environment that will highlight your best features. She is amazing! We took a variety of indoor and outdoor shots for my online dating profile and to use formy professional headshot, and I love how they came out! She’s also very friendly and conversational and makes the process of taking the photos exciting. I feel lucky to have found her website while searching for Bay Area photographers and would recommend her to anyone interested in some high-quality photos.”—Anonymous Male Client, San Jose
“I have just received the pictures and I really like them! I think they came out great. Thank you for the wonderful photo shoot.”—Asif, Oakland
“Jacqueline is a consummate professional, while at the same time being boisterous and effervescent. Now that I’ve been through a photoshoot, she makes being photographed something to look forward to. She approaches every shot with style and aplomb. She’s really good at knowing when to snap the camera to capture the exact expression that really showed my personality. She goes above and beyond what I would expect any other photographer to do. It was a great experience!”— Griffen, Berkeley
“Jacqueline is a talented artist and lovely to work with. We shot on location at the Layette Reservoir. I love the photos and can’t wait to work with her again!”—Alea, Oakland
“I had a photoshoot with Jacqueline recently, and I had a wonderful experience. Not only was the shoot fun and well directed with beautiful surroundings, but the photos themselves turned out fantastic! She is a fantastic photographer, and really captured what I was looking for in the photos. I give my highest recommendation! 5 stars! ”—Ian, San Diego
