Capturing the Moments
That will Make You Feel

Hey There, I'm Jamie!
I pride myself on being a full service photographer (meaning I want to be involved and hold your hand and guide you through the whole process).  I am located in Central Florida, and always up for travel.

A BIT ABOUT ME

-I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business from the University of Central Florida and minored in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (Psychology, Sociology, & Anthropology).

-I've been in love with photography since a young age.. I remember asking for wind up disposable cameras for my birthdays and Christmas gifts. And I also remember the day I received my first film camera (that I still have) from my stepmom for my 12th Birthday. My passion for capturing moments started young and has only grown with age...

-I worked in Law Enforcement for 7 years and resigned in 2012 to pursue Photography full time. I feel so lucky to have gone from helping people on the worst days of their lives to now being an instrumental part of some of the best days/and moments of my clients lives.... Such a shift.

-I’m a Sixth Generation "DeLandite" my family settled in Deland in 1880.

-My husband Jonathan and I celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary this past July. We live on our little family farm in Deland with our 7 year old son Jayce, our Pitbull Pup Lily, Our Kitty Cat Jayce named “Love” , Our Two Cows, and our Chickens.

-I love LOVE and capturing connections-that is what photography is about for me.

I can't wait to meet you!

XOXO
Jamie

Frequntly Asked Questions

FAQ

01.

How do we Book You?

Once we've settled on a package I will send over a contract and invoice for your retainer. Upon payment and return of your contract you are officially booked!

02.

Do you Photograph Elopements?

I LOVE Elopements! I love the intimacy of them and I am honored to be a part of such an intimate time for a couple.

03.

Do You Offer a Second Photographer?

I do offer a second photographer as an add on a la carte item. And will recommend it on the rare occasion I think a wedding will need the additional coverage(multiple locations, very large receptions etc.) I will make sure you have the coverage you need.

04.

Do you offer Albums and Prints?

I offer Heirloom Quality Albums, Prints, and Canvases and allow you to touch and feel samples at your Reveal. Guiding you through the process of choosing the products that will best meet your needs and seeing your reactions when they are delivered is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

05.

How Many Images Will I Receive From My Wedding Day?

I will deliver all final images that I feel may be of importance to you. I would say that the average number of images delivered is on the high side for all of my clients. As I don't cull down the images as much because I don't know what/who will be the most important to you... I leave that for you to decide. All images that don't have people blinking, have blur etc are delivered to you. I tend to also take a ton of candids of guests and family having fun at your reception-and I want you to have all of them(so no limit)I also have a special guide to help streamline through them to build your Wedding Album and tell the story of your day.
I average a delivery of (100+ images per hour of coverage-Photography Ninja)

06.

Do you Travel?

I do travel! And I would love to add more locations to my portfolio!
So far I've photographed sessions in Washington D.C., Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Houston , Texas.

I especially love visiting my Couples who are having Florida Destination Weddings in their Hometowns to Capture their lives and Love where they live-it also helps us get to know each other better :)

07.

I already had an engagement session, why do I need another one?

I truly believe one of the most important things you can do in choosing your wedding photographer is having an engagement session with them. It allows them to get to know you and your partner better before the wedding. It lets the photographer learn if there are angles/poses you really don't like (before it's your wedding day). And it allows you to decide if that is who you want to be with you on your wedding day.

Kind Words

From Past Clients

Jamie was awesome to work with! She did both the engagement and wedding photos. She traveled to Washington DC to spend time with my wife and me in our natural surroundings, taking beautiful engagement pictures by the monuments and National Mall. During our rehearsal dinner and wedding day in Florida, she was everywhere taking great candids and formal photos of family and friends. Her shots of our wedding ceremony were stunning! From the moment we met her, we felt extremely comfortable around her. She really took time to get to know us and our photos came out looking beautiful and genuine as a result. We were so pleased with her work, we recommended her to my wife’s sister and she will be doing her wedding photos about 3 years after she did ours! I couldn’t recommend Jamie highly enough!

There is only one word that sums up Jamie for me, AMAZING!! She is so easy to get along with and she makes you feel so comfortable. We used Jamie for our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Her pictures are so stunning and beautiful!!! You will not find one picture that you do not love. She goes above and beyond!! She helped me with our rehearsal and on the wedding day not only did she take amazing pictures but she helped with making sure everything ran smoothly. She even made this awesome video for my wedding. You will not go wrong choosing Jamie to capture your wedding day perfectly!!! I recommend her to anyone and everyone!!

Lake Mary Events Center Wedding Photographer

Michelle & Aaron | Lake Mary Events Center Wedding

Jamie was amazing! Not only did she come to Houston, TX for our engagement shoot, but she spent an entire weekend out running a storm to get us the best pictures EVER! That was until our wedding :-) We got married 5.28.17 at the Tavares Pavilion on the Lake and Jamie delivered above and beyond my expectations, which were already set very high. She took soo many pictures, I had to buy more frames for my house just to hang a quarter of them. And the best part....I had proofs within 2 weeks after my wedding! That's unheard of! The attention that you will receive from Jamie is amazing, and the quality is top notch. Absolutely in awe of her work and cannot say enough great things! If you are looking for a photographer in the Central Florida area, or anywhere for that matter, this is your girl! She will absolutely be our family photographer, even if we have to fly her to Texas!
