A writer of children’s books and scripts for short films, she uses her storytelling sensibility to create visually captivating, photojournalistic wedding imagery.

I will go with whatever your flow, your vision, your desire is.” She will listen to your personal vision for your wedding photography, add in her own expert ideas, and deliver a beautiful and detail-oriented documentation of your day.
Packages start at $2600. Customizable packages, a la carte services, and hourly rates are available. Jade will post your images to a private online gallery for ordering and also offers custom albums.
