Jacquelyne Pierson is a documentary photographer living in New York City.  After graduating from V.C.U. School of the Arts in Richmond, Virginia with her B.F.A. in Photography and Film, Jacquelyne moved to Atlanta, San Francisco and Philadelphia to practice and perfect her craft before moving to N.Y.C in 2012.  She calls New York City her forever home where she continues to practice photography everyday through the documentation of stories - life and love.  She considers herself a romantic with an intuitive vision to capture the emotions of those around her.  Seeing what others do not see and feeling what others do not feel.  With this, she is able to bring a new light to situations that are happening around her.  Love stories have enabled her to travel near and far, from NYC to Paris, Mexico, Bali and beyond.  She feels fortunate and grateful to have witnessed an incredible and undeniable amount of love in the 10 years she has been a professional photographer.  

Aside from photographing weddings, Jacquelyne is the lead in-house photographer for the women-owned and run jewelry and lifestyle company Catbird in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  She is the co-founder of a creative styling and photography company with her business partner and best friend, Katie, called JAC AND THOM. She has been a professional photo editor for the past seven years for a photography company in Los Angeles called Our Labor of Love. Jacquelyne is also aspiring to continue her education in photography by attending the International Center of Photographer in Manhattan to receive her M.F.A. 

Jacquelyne loves life - and of course - capturing it all on film.  She would love to document your story - love, life and everything in between.
