We all have a story behind our love. Was it a chance encounter? A blind date? Friendship that turned into more?
The you-ness can be found in the details. It’s in the way that you crinkle your nose when you laugh. The goodnight kiss right before you fall asleep. Filling up your partners car with gas when you borrow it. These details are everything in a relationship, because they remind us why we fell in love in the first place.
Your wedding will be a whole day of all the details that will represent who you are as a couple. I want to share my passion for all the small and big moments with you.
Hey Y’all, I’m a Wedding Photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee.
If you know me and love me, you’ll know that I always order the same drink at Starbucks: Grande white chocolate mocha with nonfat milk, hold the whip. You’ll also know that favorite store is Target, I’m always a fan of a good excel spreadsheet, and I’m fascinated with my Japanese heritage.
Over the years I have photographed well over 150 weddings and still loving experiencing each special moment. With a heart for service, I spend my days gushing over my clients making them the center of my universe. My promise to you is to laugh with you, cry with you, and always dance my heart out, awesome bad dance move in all.
If you haven’t guessed it already…I’m all about the details. It’s more than capturing a pretty picture. It’s going the extra mile to make your dreams a reality. I strive to be a calming presence and the most worry-free part of your day so you can spend it focusing on what matters most. It’s in capturing the real authentic moments and little nuances that go unnoticed.
"I would hire J. Mikado again and again. Jackie didn’t feel like just another wedding vendor. She photographed me for my engagement session, bridal session and my wedding and each time she was very patient, creative and meticulous. She cared about capturing my memories and special moments just as much as I did. Although she was very professional, she felt more like a close family friend because she was so personable, even with my “difficult” family members... "
"My girlfriend wanted a maternity shoot and I turned it into a surprise engagement shoot with the help of Jackie. My (now) wife was very surprised and Jackie did a wonderful job capturing the moment. The pictures turned out beautiful and we used her again for our newborn shoot. I could not have asked for a better photographer to capture these milestones."
"The pictures are amazing!!! I love them so much. You did an amazing job."
