Hi! I'm Jackie...

a professional food and event photographer serving Southern California. 

Restaurants, event industry professionals, and small businesses looking to showcase their food, beverages, services, and luxury products, collaborate with me to elevate their social media and marketing with high-quality images. 

I'm a fun-loving foodie and hostess-with-the-mostess with an educational background in marketing. With years of experience styling events and creating graphic designs and themes, I have a keen eye for capturing design and details. Meeting new people, learning about their passions, and building relationships is an exciting part of this job. My goal is to make your passions shine through in pictures. 

Whether it's your latest menu, new product packaging or branding, or a simply spectacular event you're working on, connect with me, and let's make some magic happen!

For restauranteurs, chefs, caterers, PR firms, editorial:

After over ten years of experience shooting and styling events, I've learned to be quick and efficient! I shoot on location and show off your menu, service, or product with an editorial eye. We can collaborate on a styled shoot or I can shoot your product from home and style for you. From the fresh ingredients to the presentation, I'll capture and deliver months of content in just one shoot. 

For Event Industry professionals:

Planners, designers, lighting specialists, fabricators...are you getting the photos you need to highlight your specific services? The event photographer may not always have time or even notice some of the small but loving details you painstakingly created. I uniquely specialize in capturing details of social and corporate events BEFORE the guests arrive. I shoot with an eye for all the details...the signage you designed, the special cocktail with a custom napkin and pick you created, or the custom backdrop and vignette you fabricated. Investing in a photographer specifically for your business will result in a better portfolio to show prospective clients and social media marketing content.
