LOCATION I currently call Denver home and routinely travel this beautiful state to photograph weddings. I am happily available for travel both domestically and internationally to shoot your wedding. In the past couple of years, I’ve photographed weddings in Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, Georgia, and DC; I love to travel!
CAMERA CRED I took my first set of engagement photos in January 2008, a year after graduating with degrees in Journalism and Spanish from the University of Kansas (Rock chalk!). By August 2009, I had enough photography work that I was able to “quit my day job” and become a full-time photographer. More than 90 weddings and all these years later, I still can’t believe this is my actual job.
ABOUT JACKIE I love that photography has opened my eyes to see the beauty that each day brings — in people, in nature, in crumbling buildings…. I am a visually-oriented person, and I often experience my surroundings better with a camera than with words.
I’m so fortunate to journey through life with my amazing husband and high school sweetheart, Casey, and our high-energy vizsla, Copper. When Casey isn’t working his full-time gig as a firefighter, he’s often second shooting weddings with me!
BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY My philosophy has always been to give usage consent for the final, edited images for all of my weddings and sessions. You are hiring me to document your day, your relationship, your family, this particular time of life, so it’s only natural that you have the digital images.
And, finally, I want to give back with my business. In 2016, 10 percent of all Jackie Cooper Photo profits are benefitting charity: water.
