The Woman Behind the Lens
Hi, I'm Jaida!
I am a Midwest-born girl, straight from the Cornhusker State of Nebraska. I've lived in Dallas for almost two years as of Oct. 2020, and have been a photographer for 5+ years now.
I've done more weddings than I can count and am no stranger to hopping on a plane to capture the magic. I'm most definitely an extrovert who loves to meet new people and share a lot of smiles & laughs. If you're looking for a fun personality to hang out with on your wedding day, look no further: I'm your girl!
Candid or Plandid?
As a photographer, I adjust my "hands-on" approach based on each couple. My clients are similar, but a little bit different, and that results in me being flexible!
I send out a questionnaire to get to know the type of direction you'd like, if any, and the style of photos you want.
A couple questions to ask yourself as you begin your wedding photographer search: do you want editorial, do you like candid, do you want formal? These can help you narrow down your search and communicate your expectations to your photographer.
I'll let you in on a little secret before you submit an inquiry...surprise!
Each J. Olivia Photography wedding package includes a complimentary engagement session.
You might be thinking already, "wait! we've never taken photos before!" That's exactly why I offer this as a gift to my booked clients to get to know me before the wedding day, and get comfortable in front of the camera.
Your session will be around 1 to 2 hours, and we can go anywhere you'd like.
