Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am Jackie Guidi, a journalistic wedding and lifestyle photographer, based out of Dallas, TX. My passion is capturing emotions through fresh, fun imagery, and I love it when people see themselves in a new light through my lens!

Here you'll see all of the fabulous people who've allowed me to do what I love, and occasionally, catch a glimpse into my life with Andrew, Baby Giuliana, and of course our two furry babies, Sophie and Jack!

Dillon Family :: Newborn Lifestyle in North Richland Hills

Exactly a week ago, I had the honor of photographing the then 12-day old Josiah Dillon and his family, Mom and Dad Kendra and Shawn Dillon, and his two big brothers, twins Abel and Benjamin!  Their master bedroom made the perfect backdrop for this beautiful at-home session, the nursery was darling, and everybody was on their best behavior!  It couldn't have gone better!  This was one of my most favorite sessions ever!  I can't wait to shoot more of these, so hey, everybody I know...please have a baby soon so I can photograph you!!

Meredith & Jason :: Wedding in Ft. Worth

I never thought I'd hear the words "Hy-Vee" while shooting a wedding in Ft. Worth, TX!  But it all makes sense, when the bride, Meredith is from Illinois, a mere hour from where I grew up.  We met thru a mutual friend who is also from my hometown back in Iowa.  I've said before, it's a small world, people!  

Meredith and Jason met in 2008 playing softball, and thou it may not have been instant romance...the two became close friends...and, well, sometimes that turns into more!!  They both donned Nikes to dance the night away after the ceremony, and the groom had an amazing NY Yankees cake!  

The love they have for each other really showed on their faces all day and into the night, which ended with dance between just husband and wife, with no onlookers...such a sweet way to end the evening!  Here's to best friends falling in love!!

Venue: Belltower Chapel & Gardens
Florist: En Fleur
Bakery:  Society Bakery and Exquisite Perfection
DJ:  Black Tie Sounds
Caterer:  Vance Godbey's

Gray Family :: Maternity Session in Frisco

I'm finally back amongst the living!  After a family trip to CA, Baby G and I both came home sick!  We've been quarantined in the house for a week now, but finally both on the mend.  Whew!  I finally got a chance to edit some maternity images for my dear friends the Grays.  Allison and Von are expecting twin girls at the beginning of November.  We had to get a few pix of Big D (Daniel), and as usual, he stole the show!  (see last picture, that pretty much sums it up!!)

Daniel G :: Lemonade Stand mini

After a few scheduling delays...we were finally able to shoot Daniel's Lemonade Stand pictures! He was so adorable in his little suit! The rolled-up pants say, "I'm dressy, yet casual!"  Luckily, no lemons were harmed during shooting...thou I think more lemonade wound up on his suit that in his mouth!  What a handsome devil!

Baby Yanchak Makes 4 :: Family Maternity Session in Plano

Babies, babies everywhere!!  At least, all over my blog lately!  I'm always honored when people ask me to do maternity photos for them.  It's such a special time, whether it's your first or fifth baby!  My good friends Kendra and Cody, and of course Miss Harper toughed it out in the sweltering Texas June heat for some sweet photos before their new baby boy arrives in a few weeks!  Cody and I took the brunt of the suffering...as we both have a bazillion chigger bites as souvenirs of the shoot!  Gah!  I can't wait to meet their new addition!
