I'm the Lead Educator and Portfolio Specialist here at Dream Team Académie.  I know what it's like to feel lonely in business. My times of biggest growth have always been when I've been surrounded by mentors who understand business and when I'm collaborating with a team of like-minded entrepreneurs.

I love creating meaningful relationships with clients and I offer a unique blend of coaching-consulting for wedding & event professionals with different levels of support.  A Powerful Purpose is my signature course designed with first-hand experience. Your business will be stronger when you are clear on your purpose, know your ideal client, identify your superpower(s), and can explain the benefits of your services/products to those you serve.  Styled Shoot Magazine is a the newest addition to our offerings. It is a trade magazine created for wedding professionals. Designed to help curate your portfolio to attract dream clients, each quarter focuses on a new topic for portfolio-building to help you showcase your own best work..

These tools were created specifically to help you gain clarity on your business purpose, alleviate commitment regret, and rid you of fear of missed opportunity for good. I'm right here with you and I a ready to cheer you on as you reach your business goals! Read more about portfolio building below.

My name is Jacqueline Malocu &
I'm an entrepreneur.
Just like you.

about Me

I'm guessing that if you are in business as a Wedding Professional you have noticed there is no shortage of us.

From seasoned veteran to enthusiastic newbie, it seems like an endless sea of artists all trying to stand out in the crowd. . .

Let’s slow down for a minute. What if...
          you could work on your terms, attracting the kind of projects that make your heart sing
          you had weddings and special occasion work that keeps coming for days, months, and before you know it -         you’re fully booked for the year
          you never had to justify your pricing or feel bad about a missed sale again
          you suddenly have clients lining up to work with you
          you could always count on getting a great review at the end of an event

                                                                                                        Well, it’s possible.

I know because I’ve done it. And I haven’t always done it the easy way. You see, I have been doing production and events since I was 19 years old and I founded my own onsite wedding team in 2007. I’ve done hundreds of weddings. It’s been a long journey of finding out how to best serve my clients and build my business at the same time.  I know I can help you recognize your goals and help you with the challenges of standing out so you can share your gift of creativity with clients you will love. Your portfolio is often the first impression of who someone thinks you are.  And often times they believe it is the best indicator of what you are capable of.

Is your portfolio up to date, showing lots of beautiful images of your special occasion work? Do your galleries show plenty of beautiful Brides in the venues where you want to be hanging out on the weekends?

No? Well, don’t be discouraged…this is where I come in. One of my favorite tools for building a purposeful portfolio is a Styled Shoot. If you don’t know what a Styled Shoot is, let me explain [if you do know, it’s okay - keep reading to hear more about what we think makes Shoots super special].

Styled Shoots are a collaboration of many event vendors to bring a story to life. In a wedding styled shoot, for example, the shoot tells a love story that follows a path to a wedding. The details are all coordinated and arranged so that photographers can capture images that tell the full story. Every vendor is a crucial part of that story. Participating in these Shoots can give you the opportunity to show your special occasion work.

However, Dream Team Académie has a core belief that shoots incorporate more than just pretty images. Our goal is to see you connect with like-minded professionals who care deeply about the experience they deliver to their clients. We are building a caring, creative COMMUNITY that is positive and uplifting.

"When I first started working with Jacqueline, I was at a point in my business that I wasn't sure where to go next. I knew I wanted to grow, but wasn't sure what that next step looked like. She helped me look at my business in a way I never had before. Since working with Jacqueline...I am reaching the clients of my dreams and watching my business grow in a way that I thought was impossible. If you are in a place in your business where you're not sure what is next - look no further and contact Jacqueline. I highly recommend her. She is sweet, caring, and will push you to dig deep!" 

-Damien Carter Photography

"Jacqueline thought of all the little things and she made sure that I got all the shots I needed to make the session a success...Her experience was a real asset to me. She is a true team player and is such a pleasure to work with that I can't wait until our next shoot!"
