Perhaps it is your childhood pictures, the ones your parents took of you or the disposable camera you used and waited 7 days at the local shop to see them developed. Maybe it’s sifting through your parents photo albums of their childhood, or those framed photographs of your grandparents on their wedding day.

We believe that a great photograph is one that is timeless and transportive.


What are the photographs that have meant the most to you?

Through the years, it has been imagery that has kept me connected, grounded and reflective. A powerful image can be incredibly transcendent, taking you back instantly to that exact sound, that exact smell, that exact feeling. In our digital age, we often forget the intangible value to holding that printed photo between our fingertips.

Photography is how we remember our loved ones, and how we want to be remembered.


This is the incredible power of photography.

I will capture and tell your story in a way that will always remind you of how you felt on that day. It’s a beautiful balance of those traditional photographs, alongside those magnificent, fleeting moments in-between. The ones that are so full of emotion,

and all that beautiful energy.

This is your value.

This is your legacy.


LET OUR JOURNEY BEGIN

To ensure our clients get the best possible experience, we only take on a select limited number of weddings per season. As your wedding photographers, we spend every exciting moment of your wedding day together with you – we get to capture the morning butterflies, the happy tears, and all the laughter and love in between – and so connecting with our clients is incredibly important to us.
We can’t wait to meet you.

Wedding Collections begin at 3200

OUR COUPLES SAY THE SWEETEST THINGS

Where do we begin? Jacqueline has a way of capturing every moment so thoughtfully and carefully. The way she's able to share a story through her talent was something that immediately caught my attention. It was exactly what we wanted for our wedding day!

Jacqueline and her partner Braden were the perfect additions for our big day, and made us feel so comfortable and natural in front of the camera. When we received our photos, not only did we absolutely love them, we even got teary eyed because the photos were beautifully captured and edited. They went above and beyond our expectations, and we can't thank them enough for their many hours of hard work on the wedding day, and after. Jacqueline and Braden have the biggest, kindest hearts and we are forever grateful for them!

Having Jacqueline photograph our wedding was one of the best parts of our whole day. Her artistic talent and passion for natural beauty are obvious in her work and we knew we would have amazing pictures. 

Aside from being professional, detail-oriented and creative, she was so lovely to work with, and makes even the most camera shy couple feel comfortable and relaxed enough to be themselves in front of the camera! She knew exactly the aesthetic we were going for in our photos and pulled off the most magical, dreamy pictures we could have hoped for. She has the best sense of humour, and is the coolest, most creative gal. We’re so glad we changed our wedding date to have Jacqueline be part of it. So worth it!

It took me a while to write this review because there simply are no words to convey how happy we are with Jacqueline’s work. Our wedding photos are just so dreamy.

Everything about the way Jacqueline worked with us on the day was calming and easy and wonderfully professional. And when we got the shots back, her true artistry was evident in every frame. We’ve looked over them so many times already and have had lots of laughs and a few happy tears remembering each part of our wedding day – Jacqueline captured the love, joy and excitement that we felt perfectly. These are photos that we (and our family and friends!) will treasure forever. If you’re considering Jacqueline for your wedding, just book it already. You will not regret it in the slightest!

There are no words to capture our love and gratitude for you. From day one you have been nothing but professional, caring and completely devoted to your craft. You are one of the BEST decisions we ever made for our wedding!

Thank you for taking care in each and every image you produced. Gian Carlo and I fell in love all over again when we saw the final collection gallery. As we watched, tears running down my face, I turned to my husband and said, “Do you want to know my favourite thing about her? She made me look beautiful.” From a very self-conscious bride – thank you for capturing beauty where I did not know it existed. I am eternally indebted to you. We could not have chosen anyone better. Now we have memories to last us a lifetime, captured in flawless artistry. Thank you, Jacqueline for the amazing memories! We are eternally grateful!

Heartfelt, delicate, cinematic, atmospheric and timeless. I am looking for real and soulful moments but my aim is to also bring a sense of timeless beauty and a touch of ethereal romance. It’s more than just taking pictures it’s about observing human interactions and anticipating that little moment before it’s gone. It’s about those moments that are perfectly imperfect. I want to create dream-like quality images that makes you feel the emotion and like you’re there in the image.

We offer various packages based on the type of wedding your planning whether its a wedding in a Toronto venue, a destination wedding, or an intimate elopement. Full day wedding photography collections start at 3200 for two photographers. If you would like to view the complete pricing PDF, simply get in touch through the contact form at the top, or send us an email to info@jacquelinejamesphoto.com

We sure do. Although we love Toronto, we equally love travelling nationally + internationally. If you are thinking of getting married somewhere awesome, do it. And we’ll come too.

Yes, it is part of how I tell your story, and therefore all the photos are edited in my style. I give a lot of attention to on each image, creating a whole set of fine art photos which will be print ready when you receive them. It’s actually a part of the process I enjoy, putting the whole story of your day together.

You will get a minimum of 600 wedding images. Here’s the thing though. I focus on quality over quantity. I give you the best of the best. I make sure all the important moments are there and beautifully edited. I put tons of love into my work to give you the best photos possible.

All of my collections include our studios’ exclusive second photographer, Braden Hendrickson, who is not only an expert behind + in front of the camera – but is also the love of my life! We work seamlessly and efficiently as a powerful team throughout your full day, and this enables us to provide the full scope of our photojournalistic, story-telling style of photography.

We know you are excited to see your photos + I promise you that we are even more excited to show you the final product. You can expect to see your photos 6-8 weeks following your wedding. But keep an eye on IG + our FB Page to see sneak previews. The last thing I would want to do is rush over your wedding, just to get it done by the deadline. I spend time and effort trying to handcraft each individual photo to make them beautiful treasures. Editing takes time. Sometimes, it takes more time than normal. If more time is needed, I will notify you and keep you updated through the process.

Yes, I offer prints! I wholeheartedly believe that there is nothing more magical than holding your images between your fingertips. When you receive your personal web gallery, you will have the option to order prints directly from there! Friends and family can order as well if you want to offer it to them. Prints are reasonably priced, professionally and locally produced and is of highest quality.

Absolutely. We believe that your photos are made to be more than just screen savers + Facebook profile pictures. They are meant to tell a story + what better way than to have them in a book that can be passed down for generations.

Yes! We own multiple camera bodies, a number of lenses, and more memory cards than we need at all weddings. We shoot primarily with the Nikon D750 and an assortment of beautiful prime lenses. Our camera and our style works best in natural light. Light is the most important element of photography, so it’s very important to us that we have a lot of natural light to work with. During the evening (when all available light is gone) we will use flash to get those fun dance shots!

If you decide we are the best fit for your day, awesome! All we require to secure your date is a 50% retainer fee along with a signed contract. Boom.

After being officially booked, the rest of the payment is due 1 month before the wedding, so that I’m not chasing down a check from you on your wedding day. For our largest collection, we do offer an additional payment plan of 40% non-refundable retainer. Email Money Transfer is easiest & preferred. However, you can also pay by certified cheque or cash.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of this industry, I frequently have multiple couples who inquire within days of each other for the same wedding date. In these instances, I always like to keep things fair and simple by explaining to all of my couples that the first to deliver a signed contract and a retainer is the client who gets the date.

Yes, 100% absolutely.

I do, I have been professionally shooting fashion, editorials and Vanity Fair-inspired portraiture for over 6 years.
