Friends first, photography follows.
Our goal is that you truly enjoy your wedding day without the pressure of what your wedding, "should be." We do this by deeply understanding you and creating a friendship. That way you get photographs which genuinely reflect your wedding and the moments that matter.
My kids are the reason why I picked up a camera. I began by capturing all the little moments as my kids were growing and learning about life. Over time friends and family members wanted their special moments captured as well. So the business began to grow, eventually branching into weddings.
This experience has been one of life’s surprising joys for me, photography is such a gift. I love to share this gift with all of couples and families by capturing their most important moments, and preserving their legacy.
Being a wedding photographer in Saratoga Springs NY has been amazing. There are so many beautiful sites and locations I get to see and photograph every day! I wouldn't trade what I do for anything!

Ellen and Josh were so easy to work with. They made us feel comfortable. Ellen's communication is fantastic, and she makes the wedding planning process easy with offer advice and ideas. Josh and Ellen even took us out to dinner after our engagement session to really get to know us. Something very special! We are so grateful to have found Jackson Photography and are so happy with our beautiful photographs!

Finding the right photographer is essential. I was immediately drawn to The Jacksons, due to their stunning artwork, talent, reliability and relatability. All of the vendors for our wedding have been chosen via Jackson Photography’s preferred vendors site, which was TOTALLY helpful through the planning process.
Ellen has a special niche in capturing priceless moments.

Ellen made our engagement session so easy and fun! My fiancé and I were nervous and we quickly felt at ease. After the shoot, Ellen and her husband, Josh took us to dinner. It was such a nice dinner and really let us get to know them! By the next morning, I had a sneak peak of our photos and absolutely loved them! We cannot wait for them to shoot our wedding."
Creating timeless photographs begins with friendship. Our exclusive process begins with our first meeting where we begin to understand you. We bring you into our family so that you bring us into yours.
Upstate New York is home for us! We know Upstate New York, and it's surrounding areas, such as Lake George, Albany, Lake Placid, and Hudson Valley so well because we were born and raised here. This area has the absolute best wedding venues, incredible people and delicious food. (Did we mention the food?) Also, the Adirondacks in Upstate New York is a hidden gem and great for planning your wedding. We love all the wedding venues that the area has to offer, but I wanted to highlight a few that we simply cherish. Our favorite wedding venues in Upstate New York are: The Sablewood at Highview Springs, The Adelphi Hotel, Glen Sanders Mansion, Franklin Plaza, and the Inn at Erlowest. A few other venues that we love are: The Queensbury Hotel, Country Meadows Barn, The Barn at 870, and Gables and Gardens.
