It's my mission to help you remember more of your wedding day than you ever thought possible.


From our first consultation to engagement session to your wedding day, you can count on me. 

You don't want a photographer who will just show up and snap some photos. You want a photographer who cares about capturing your day - all of the big and small moments - in a way where it means something to you. If that sounds like what you've been tirelessly searching for, this page will help you confirm that you're in the right place.

Wedding days fly by. I know, because I've been in your shoes. That's why I've made it my mission to create an effortless wedding photography experience so that you can be fully present at your wedding.

I'm here to document your best day ever in an organized, very thorough, and meaningful way from start to finish.

 Step by Step

Say Hello

Before you reach out, take a minute to look at my portfolio if you haven't already. Take a look at my approach and what weddings look like through my eyes. If you can envision yourself in these moments, reach out and say hello!


Making it Official

I can't wait to get your message! I'll send you more information on booking and pricing and from there we will hop on the phone and talk all things wedding. Your love story, your vision, your questions. I will even set you up with a personalized timeline so you have a big picture of how your day could go! If we're a good fit and you want to book me, all I need is a signed contract and a 30% retainer and I'm all yours for your wedding day.


your Engagement Session

We get to spend some time hanging out and capturing this season of your life together! I'll help with location ideas if you want, what to wear, and guiding you through the whole session. You just have to show up and be yourselves!

I love doing these somewhere meaningful or personal. They're perfect for save-the-dates and framed prints throughout your home.


 Before Your Wedding

I'll send you a few questionnaires before your wedding day where you can let me know all the details that are important to you so that I'm fully prepared to capture your day exactly how you pictured it. We'll also create your timeline and figure out the best way to structure your day tailored to your unique plans.

If you ever need help with anything throughout your planning process, I'm just an email away!


Your Wedding Day

THE DAY IS HERE!! We celebrate, we cry, we dance, we have the best day EVER. You can count on me to keep your day running smoothly so you can soak up every little moment with your people.


Your Photographs

You'll receive sneak peeks within 48 hours to hold you over and get you excited for your full gallery! Your full gallery will be delivered within 6-8 weeks of your wedding. You'll get to relive the most amazing day through your photos, share them with friends and family, and order prints directly from your gallery so you can hang your photos in your home to see every day.

"I truly believe without Jackie, my wedding day would not have ran so smoothly. As soon as she showed up, she was ready to help! She made sure to make me feel special WHILE getting the most perfect photos. She was there but not too in the way of the beautiful madness. She made everyone feel so comfortable and group photos were a breeze."

Devany &Ezra

"Jackie was very thorough and was careful to capture each pose. She helped to plan out and execute our timeline, making each moment more relaxed. She was very kind and engaging as she helped us pose, and she has a knack of capturing each one’s individual personality. We could not recommend her enough; and are so thankful for her beautiful gift of photography!"

Elizabeth & Eric

"Jackie is detail oriented, organized, punctual, efficient, and professional. She kept communication with me leading up to the wedding, having phone calls and going over the schedule/any ways she could help me prepare. On the wedding day she knew where to be when and how to jump in and help. She got pictures of every single thing I could’ve wanted or thought of." 

Sophia & Dalton

"Jackie was my wedding photographer, and it was honestly one of the best decisions that I made for the wedding! Jackie helped me stay calm and happy throughout the entire process, and especially the day-of! I love every single one of my pictures and had a great time working with her. I highly recommend Jackie Whitaker Photography for great pictures and a great time! Not to mention how quickly she communicates and sends your photos!" 

Becka & Charlie

heart warming words from my couples

I typically deliver around 75-90 images per hour of shooting. Every day is unique so I don't put a minimum or maximum on your photos. It truly depends on the events you incorporate, the amount of coverage, and all of the moments that take place! I always deliver the best photos and I promise not to leave any special ones out. I have always said that I know which photos are my favorites, but you may love the ones completely opposite from me and that's what matters. So I leave it up to you to decide which photos you love most!

How many photos will I receive?

If you're ready to book, send me an email or let's jump on the phone! Once we've figured out the package that fits your wedding day perfectly, the next step is to make it official. A signed contract and a 30% retainer will secure your wedding date. The remaining balance is due a month before your wedding date. Payment plans are also available! All of this can be done online and you can set up autopay so you have one less thing to worry about when wedding planning. My goal is to make this experience as easy and streamlined as possible.

How do we book you?

Yes! I am based in Central Kentucky, but I photograph weddings all over Kentucky and beyond! A travel fee is applied to weddings outside of a 30 mile radius of Richmond, KY.

frequently asked questions

Every year I take a limited number of weddings in order to best serve my wonderful couples. Because each and every wedding is unique, I talk with each inquiry personally to discover their needs and establish a good fit. Most couples invest between $2700-$3500 for full wedding days. My collections include high-resolution photographs, an online gallery to share with loved ones and more!

What does your wedding coverage cost?

Lucky for you, I hear this all the time and it is my job to help you feel comfortable! A majority of the couples you see all over my website and social media have never taken professional photos before so you can trust that I will help bring out the best in you.

What if we're not comfortable in front of the camera?

How do we know our photos are safe with you?

I have heard so many horror stories about photographers losing images. I backup every single photo I take at 5 different places at once, all of these hosts being totally different. For example, I take photos on 2 cards while I'm shooting, I store all images on 2 hard drives and I keep the images on the original SD card in a fireproof safe until I have delivered the gallery to you! Losing your images from the most special day is not something I'm willing to leave up to chance, so I've got you here!

I share a sneak peek gallery (about 15-30 images) within 1-2 days of your wedding day so you can share with family & friends. You can expect your finished gallery within 6-8 weeks!

How long will it take for us to receive our photos?
