Hi, I'm Jaci Berkopec! A self portrait of me would include a frozen pizza, caesar salad bag, and a bottle of white wine. But I guess more importantly I am a wedding, lifestyle and adventure elopement photographer based out of NYC. I thrive when hiking, climbing, or sitting in a waterfall and I love the mountains, desert, beaches and forests. My world started in the good ol' Twin Cities of Minnesota. I grew up as the "artsy" kid, always covered in paint or with a sketchbook under my arm. I was introduced to photography in high school and immediately fell in love and set up camp in the photo labs playing with film. When I was 18, my passion brought me to NYC to attend The School of Visual Arts for 4 years and majored in photography. Now 9 years after my move to NYC I am still hustling in this crazy city as a freelance photographer.
Each photo I take portrays love and light. I capture humans at their happiest, mountains at their tallest, and the moon at its fullest. I work hard at what I do, I put my heart into my work and don't stop until I truly am proud of what I have created. I am here to document the real, raw moments for you. I want you to look at your photos and scream "Hell yeah, that's us and that's our love."
I avoid the cheesy poses and I want to capture your personality, love, family, and relationship. My favorite part about my job is that I get to meet couples and learn their stories and participate in their special day. So let's create, chat, Pinterest our little hearts out, have a glass of wine, and get to planning your shoot!
