Her experience with both editorial and high fashion blend seamlessly with her artistic talent. The quality of service compliments the fine art photography every time. Jaci knows the only way to capture the essence is to know her clients on a personal level." -full page interview article by the Wedding Planner & Guide magazine

"Thinking outside the box comes naturally to Jaci [Ruben]. That's apparent to anyone who walks into Gloss Photography Studios. The studio feels more like a funky living room than a storefront, complete with Stella, napping in the corner. [Ruben] knows how to mix it up, yet bring her signature sense of artistry to each type of shoot."
