2024 collection investments

We offer a range of hours of collections from 6 hours to 10 hours. We recommend 8 hours for most all day wedding events. We also give you the ability to add hours al-la-carte.

How many hours of coverage is included?

We believe in a no shot list policy. We do this because we believe that planning every photograph does not leave room for the magic of a wedding day. However, we do take requests especially for family portraits and must have photographs.

Do you work from a shot list?

Absolutely. For local locations, we include travel complimentary. However if extensive travel is required, we evaluate it on a case by case basis.

frequently asked questions

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. 

Most know me as a happy and bubbly person who believes that life is too short to worry about the little things. I love to bring this approach to your wedding day so that the atmosphere is fun, positive, and stress free.

"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 peek of our photos and absolutely loved them! We cannot wait for them to shoot our wedding!" 

Great relationship...


Ellen and Josh are not only amazing photographers but amazing people as well. My husband and I have built incredible memories them. Ellen and Josh make you feel very comfortable and are very in tune with client wishes!

They get to know you as a person so that they can capture the true essence of who you are!

Capture the true essence...


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.

Stunning artwork...
