Jaci is AMAZING!!! Jaci is professional, personable, and made the whole experience a joy from day one of reaching out to her. Jaci was able to capture emotions and personalities from us that came out in the pictures...emotions that our close family and friends recognized and commented on how beautifully natural we looked while capturing the love we have for each other.

I am forever grateful to Jaci for these beautiful pictures she captured. Jaci is a photographic genius, she has a gift to capture real emotion in the most beautiful ways.
Jaci’s final photos blew me away...I still get teary eyed when looking at them.


I can not wait to have several more photo sessions with her in the years to come.

FAQS


12-J-Vigil-Photo-elopement-glacier-national-park-montana.jpg

Do you shoot anything other than couples?

Couples are definitely my specialty, what I feel I am the most skilled at. That being said I am open to other types of shoots. If you are interested in senior, family, boudoir, branding sessions just send me an inquiry and let me know what you're thinking.

My pricing for other types of shoots is the same as my regular couples sessions and starts at $500 (50% due at the time of booking)

Important Note: When I shoot I am wholeheartedly focused on connection and emotion. While I will definitely get a couple big smiley faced photos, if you’re looking for an entire gallery of “smile at the camera” photos then I’m not your woman.

2-J-Vigil-Photo-couples-in-home-session-oregon-coast.jpg

Do you shoot larger weddings?

I only take on a very small amount of full size weddings per year. If you want me then I would absolutely love to chat with you about it!! My full size wedding packages start at $3500 ($1000 due in order to book your date). Send me an inquiry here with all the deets.

Do you edit everything the same?

I have worked really hard to create a consistent editing style. HOWEVER … Every single shoot is so unique. There are SO many factors outside of editing that go into what makes an image look a specific way. For example:

the location

the weather

the time of year

the time of day

what kind of sunlight is available

I cannot/will not make any guarantees to replicate any specific photo I've shot in the past.

what's the difference between a regular couples session and an adventure session?

Regular couples sessions are pretty low key as far as location. For example, in-home sessions or locations that we can jump out of the car and start shooting right away.

Adventure sessions often involve some kind of hike, more gear, more to prepare. With adventure sessions I spend a lot of time researching the location for the best time and places to shoot and how the light affects the landscape. I research the land and the best way to practice leave no trace, researching if permits are required. Hours are spent just in preparation for these shoots.

11-J-Vigil-Photo-elopement-glacier-national-park-montana.jpg

what gear do you use?

I shoot with two Canon 5D Mark IVs and have a Mark III as a backup. I shoot with prime lenses and I'm constantly changing my mind on what my favorite is. The lenses in my bag are:

Sigma 85mm 1.4

Sigma 50mm 1.4

Sigma 35mm 1.4

Sigma 24mm 1.4

Canon T/S 45mm 2.8

5-J-Vigil-Photo-couples-in-home-session-oregon-coast.jpg

What if it rains or snows?

Weather happens.

I am prepared for it.

Sometimes we've just got to roll with what we've got. Moving the shoot indoors is a great backup option. Unless there are significant safety concerns due to the weather or it might harm my gear I will not plan to reschedule. I cannot make promises for a certain type of weather for your day. I do understand if you have a certain vision for your shoot and if you do wish to reschedule to a different day there is a $150 rescheduling fee.

7-J-Vigil-Photo-elopement-glacier-national-park-montana.jpg

Will you help tell me what to wear?

I will absolutely help coach you on what to wear! I will send you info to help guide your choice but I'm also totally down if you want to text me photos or bring a handful of options to your shoot.

6-J-Vigil-Photo-elopement-glacier-national-park-montana.jpg

What's your turn around time?

For couples + adventure sessions my average turn around time is 3 weeks.

For elopements + intimate weddings my average turn around time is 6 weeks.

4-J-Vigil-Photo-couples-in-home-session-oregon-coast.jpg

How much is the deposit to book?

50% is due at the time of booking to hold your date

International Weddings - $1000 is due at the time of booking to hold your date

8-J-Vigil-Photo-elopement-glacier-national-park-montana.jpg

Do you do mini shoots?

I do not. So much of the way I create is due to the relationships I build with my clients and it's not something I feel I can do in a 30 minute mini-session.

13-J-Vigil-Photo-couples-session-oregon-coast.jpg

Can you suggest locations and vendors?

Hell yes! I love getting to take clients to my favorite locations both in Glacier National Park and on the Oregon Coast. If you need help deciding on a location let me know!

I'm familiar with many local vendors to refer you to and can let you know how I've liked working with them in the past. I'm also a member of the My Montana Wedding Association which is an incredible resource for locating vendors when getting married in Montana.
