About Jacqueline 

Hi, I'm Jacqueline, one half of Jones and Jones Photography. Here's a little bit about me and my photography journey!

 

I developed a love of photography when I was given my first camera as a teenager. I had always been fascinated with the photographs in my parents' photograph albums and would often use up rolls of their film, until they decided enough was enough and I should have a camera of my own!

During a summer break from University, I gained some experience as a photographer at a Butlin's resort and absolutely loved the experience. My parents bought me my first 35mm SLR on the back of this. I took a basic photography course after qualifying from University and was captivated by the development of the photographs, whilst also learning new skills. Not long after I had the opportunity to work and travel abroad, which fuelled my love for photography even more.

Fast forward a few years later, and I decided to do a few more courses, gaining qualifications from the national developmental agency for photography in Wales, Ffotogallery and an a-s level at art college. After marrying, along came my two wonderful children which took up much of my time, as well as my photo albums!

 

I had always had nice comments about my photographs and have even had a couple of my pictures featured in The Guardian. I had photographed a couple of weddings for friends years ago, yet it was only when my friend at work asked me to photograph her wedding that things really changed. I asked Chris if he'd like to join me, and it was a life changing experience for both of us. We absolutely loved it and after that I just knew that this was the path I wanted to follow.

My love for the art of photography continues, and here are just a few of my favourite images that I have captured over the years (click onto the image below to see all images).

My first trek to Pen-y-Fan recently, in the snow. What an experience and how beautiful it looked.
