SO MUCH MORE THAN A PHOTOGRAPHER
You probably want to know a bit about the woman behind it all
My name is Jacey (like Casey, but with a J) and I am the face behind the camera. When I'm not adventuring to the next National Park with my husband, doing a deep theological study of a book in the Bible, spending hours perfecting a pasta sauce in the kitchen, strapping on my snowboard for another run down a snowy mountain, or singing at the top of my lungs in my car, I'm a photographer. Although, I have often been a photographer during many of those passions as well...
My heart always comes back to the beautiful art of DOCUMENTING LIFE.
I desire to take hold of the wonderfully beautiful moments that pass me by each day. Photography is a wonderful way to do that along with journaling, reflecting and praying. But above all, I believe in being intentional and fully giving myself to each passion I pursue.
A few fun facts you should know:
+ I love Jesus and have devoted my life to becoming more like Him.
+ My husband and I eloped at Tettegouche State Park in 2020 (see photo above).
+ I hate using recipes and cook everything based off of taste.
+ I put down my camera and dance at some point at every wedding.
+ The cutie pup pictured is our Great Dane, Harper when she was just a nugget.
What all this means for you
Not only do you gain a detail oriented, moment capturer, but you gain a life-long friend as well! I truly desire to get to know you and to capture who you are. I guarantee that in that process I will find many beautiful quirks and wonderful pieces that make you uniquely you, and that right there is what I want to photograph.
I'm not just a photographer, I'm your hype girl, dress/outfit carrier, TIMELINE PLANNER, location coordinator, adventure buddy, invitation designer, and I just so happen to take amazing photos of you along the way.
Plus, if you choose me to photograph your wedding day, I can pretty much guarantee you will get to experience my dance moves by the end of the night and I hope you dance with me.
I earned my degree in graphic design from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2019. During this time, I fell in love with the process of taking someone’s ideas and being able to visually bring them to life. No matter how hard I tried, I kept being called back to photography. I worked as a University photographer for 3.5 years. I photographed sporting events, concerts, banquets, theater productions, field trips, and everyday student life just to list a few. This is where I truly learned about the art of photography and deepened my passion for capturing raw moments and emotion.
I also worked as a design intern where I focused on designing wedding and event invitations for community members of the Chippewa Valley. This is where my love for invitation design truly blossomed. Last year I came to realize that I didn't need to choose between photography and design but that I could serve my clients using my skillset in both art forms.
I started this business when I was just 17 years old as a side hobby. Now, here I am, 7 years later running this business full time and loving it. I am self taught through trial and error throughout the years.
A LIFE UPDATE
from Jacey herself
In August of 2023 I had the honor of birthing our first baby boy! For now, I do plan to continue running this business. However, I will be narrowing down my bookings by cutting them in half. My role has changed from full time photographer to full time mama, full time wife, part time photographer.
I hope you enjoy some fun pics from our pregnancy announcement of us changing my office into a nursery. And a few of sweet Ezrah at one month old.
