Jacqueline of Mae Rain Photo photographed Doug and I’s engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. Jacqueline was very accommodating and flexible with our work schedules and our venues of choice. Her ability to capture the outdoors and the beauty nature has to offer is incredible. She was efficient in getting our prints to us and was willing to assist in helping our wedding planner get the right image for our invitations. The day of our wedding, it was freezing temperatures outside and sleeting but you would never know when looking at our photos how bitter cold it was. She was able to capture many candid photos of our friends and family as well as our group and individual shots. Her patience and passion for her job is brought out in all of her images. She tells a story with her photos and truly captures the beauty of the day. The images were beyond stunning and Doug and I are so very pleased with the finished product. We will forever be able to look back at this day and remember how special it was. Thank you Jacqueline for creating such a beautiful story for us.
I have always wanted to take maternity photos but missed my opportunity with my oldest son. When my daughter was diagnosed with a serious congenital heart defect in utero, we were devastated but I wanted to celebrate her life since we weren’t sure if she would survive surgery. I began to think about getting maternity photos taken. I had seen Jacqueline’s photos on Facebook so I contacted her if she would be willing to take pictures of our family.
Jacqueline is so talented. I actually hate getting my picture taken usually, but she put me and my entire family at ease. That is not an easy task with a two year old! I wish I could go back in time and have her take my engagement photos, my wedding photos, and basically just follow me around with a camera to document my life.
Her kindness and her love for Jesus are completely evident when you meet her. She has blessed our family beyond measure and I will continue to recommend her to everyone I know. Yes, she knows how to take a great picture but it is more than that. Somehow, she is able to capture the feeling and the love between us and our children.
Our daughter Caroline survived her first surgery and was able to come home. We had a lifestyle session when she was two months old and my son who is three. She was able to capture the two of them together, which we were not sure was going to happen. Babies grow up so fast and she has given me a precious gift that freezes them in time so I can remember.
Thank you for everything.
I cannot recommend Mae Rain Photo and Jacqueline McClurg highly enough! Every interaction I have had with her, from the very first email to our photo session to follow-ups since, has been incredible. Jacqueline has gone above and beyond to not just capture an amazing time in my family’s life (our first pregnancy), but to support and encourage us as we faced challenges during that time. She is rare in that she is not simply someone providing a fantastic service–she truly cares and is invested in the lives of her clients. Honestly, I feel like calling ourselves her “clients” isn’t even the right word for it, because she has made us feel special, and more like friends. Aside from her character, her work is phenomenal. The pictures we got were amazing and beautiful and something I am honored to have. Every time we look at the moments she captured for us, we are in awe of them and can’t help but smile! Jacqueline is such an amazing combination of talent and kindheartedness that I feel truly lucky to have found her!
As someone who has followed Jacqueline’s photography journey since the beginning, it was a dream come true to work with her for our family session. She made us feel comfortable and the photos look more natural because of it. She did such a wonderful job capturing our family as we are in our daily lives. We will cherish these photos forever and continue to use Mae Rain Photo for all of our future photography needs as our family grows and changes!
