Love Jacklyn and Chris. Not only did our photos come out STUNNING, but they made our wedding day so special. We felt so comfortable with them and will recommend them to anyone who wants amazing photos.

“There are no words to describe my experience with JAGstudios. Aside from the very obvious fact that they are, quite simply, the best photographers around, your pictures will be breathtaking, and everyone will constantly rave about them months and years later, and the essence and feel of your day will be perfectly captured, no... ASIDE from all of that, Jacklyn and Chris are consummate professionals. And to me, even more importantly, they become your friends. They genuinely care, and it is very clear that this isn't just a job for them. They are passionate about what they do. At the end of the
day, all you have are these photos and your own memories to rekindle the feelings of your wedding day, and I cannot imagine anyone doing it better than Jacklyn and Chris. They did our engagement photographs in Paris, France as well, and there was so much personality in them - they were able to capture both of us, our spirits, how we are with each other, and our unique personalities, because we were so comfortable with them. Their humor and positive attitudes are infectious. On your wedding day, you want everyone around you to be your friend, including the people working. It adds to the mood of the event, and everyone feels inspired. I truly felt like they were guests at my wedding and we were so thankful to have them there. They are FUN, thoughtful, caring, kind, friendly, hilarious, and extraordinarily talented. What more could you ask for? THE. BEST. PERIOD. Honestly, you will be lucky to have them."

Jacklyn and Chris are absolutely amazing, they truly care about their clients as friends and are obviously incredibly talented as you will know if you review examples of their work. We could not have had a better experience working with them for our wedding at Winvian Farm!

We couldn’t be happier with our choice of wedding photographers! From start to finish, Jacklyn and Chris of JAGstudios were amazing to work with, and we are in love with our beautiful photo album and wall art! Our photos are truly unique and special, and capture the spirit and story of our entire wedding day. Thank you so much Jacklyn and Chris, you both were such a major part of our entire wedding experience! Highly recommend!

We hired JAGstudio in 2011 to photograph our wedding and reunited again in 2021 for our 10 year anniversary. For our anniversary we wanted to do a photoshoot with our daughter. We had so much fun shooting with Chris and Jacklyn. It was like reuniting with old friends. We felt comfortable and relaxed with both of them.
I was expecting to get a few good images but we ended up with a coffee book because all the pictures were breath taking. Chris and Jacklyn have such an amazing eye for capturing the right moments.
XAVIER + ANDREW
We absolutely loved working with Jacklyn and Chris! The photos they took of our wedding/engagement shoot were genuinely better than we could have imagined, and we get compliments on them constantly. We also really enjoyed the process of working with them to decide which photos we wanted in our albums, and they made it really fun, plus the albums are beautiful. Can't recommend them enough, and would consider them friends after working so closely with them!

Where do we even begin? Doug and I could not be more grateful that you came into our lives. The memories of planning our wedding to the BIG DAY were captured beyond beautiful!

The albums are stunning and our families and friends LOVE our cards(as much as we do)! Cheers to new friends and capturing life's moments. Thank you for all your hard work and friendship!

Our wedding planner suggested we look at JAGstudios, and we were immediately drawn in by the emotion, composition and beauty of their work. We loved how their photography captured feelings and those special, once-in-a-lifetime moments in time versus the more down the middle wedding photography. We love Jacklyn and Chris as people and as artists and photographers and could not recommend JAGstudios more highly. Jacklyn and Chris took our engagement photos and also photographed our rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Our wedding photos are beautiful and emotive beyond our wildest dreams and capture
the exuberant and joyous spirit of our wedding weekend and our love for each other. Seeing our wedding photos is like re-living our wedding day every time we look at them (which is a lot as we have them all over our apartment and in beautiful albums we can't wait to receive!). On the albums point, Jacklyn and Chris are also masterful at creating wedding albums -- the process could not have been more seamless for us largely because they did almost all of the heavy lifting and guided us through the photos they suggested to weave together the story of our wedding weekend in albums that we'll have forever. We are so grateful to Jacklyn and Chris and feel so lucky that we had the incredibly good fortune to work with them!
VIN + KATHERINE
When choosing you both as photographers it was based upon your ability to capture emotion. What we did not foresee was the amazing support that you would provide us on our wedding day. You both have an incredible ability to put the people around you at ease on what is typically a stressful day. This is above and beyond the duties of a photographer and something we will always be grateful for. The feedback we have received from our photos has been extraordinary. Thank you for the photos which allow us to relive the spirit of the day and remember it. We hope to one day work with you again.
Thanks, Shawn + Christine G.

Jacklyn & Chris, You guys are new friends for us, but we feel like we've known you both forever. Your amazing pictures of us in London give us the best memories of our engagement and time with you both during pre shoot drinks & fries in the pub. We are honored to have you both with us today as a sign of your love and support for what we are doing. Thank you both... there are no other words.
