Hi! My name's Daniel Solomon Jackson, and it's great to have you here. Whether you're here to look at some beautiful images or just to get some encouragement, I hope I can be a provider for both. So kick up your feet and stay a while.
When it comes to planning the wedding day, it can be a little bit daunting. After all, how much time does it really take to do family photos? And if you want images of all those little details (rings, flowers, invitations), where does your photographer fit it in to get all that done? Further, what […]
Over these past two years, I have worked with some extraordinarily cute couples. The kind that melt your heart by the mere authenticity of their relationship. You know! Those adorable one where trust isn’t something they ever worry about. They know each other completely, weaknesses and all, and they accept each other fully. It’s beautiful! Those couples that I’ve loved the most (the ones who seemed to really get it) all seemed really comfortable in each other’s arms. And as I thought through this more, I’m beginning to see a pretty massive correlation between the amount a couple naturally snuggles in front of the camera and the perceived authenticity of their love.

They truly care in a way that tangibly causes her to fall more in love with him!

Just a few weeks earlier they’d been right here. The same gazebo, overlooking the same lake, under the same canopy of leafless trees. That entire day still danced around in his mind like a wisp of a dream. As hard as he tried, he still couldn’t even remember the exact words he had used…
