MEET YOUR wedding & elopement PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m here to capture that feeling— the one that words can’t quite express. The one that makes your heart beat a little faster. That tangled, messy feeling. Where the whole world fades away. The magic and mystery of love and being loved and being love.

I’m here to tell your story, because I believe that everyone has a story worth telling, and everyone deserves a seat at the table. I’m here to hold up a mirror, to show you the beauty you’re too close to see. I’m here to walk alongside you, to find the truest you, to gather your love into a frame. I’m here to help you remember the things that matter and the things that leave too quickly.
I’m here to give your stories a place to live forever.

"Jaymi is so kind, friendly, and confident in what she does! She created a comfortable atmosphere where I was just able to be myself and feel beautiful enough to have my picture taken."

sarah & jonah

"Jaymi is so easy to talk to, which helped me to be able to share my questions no matter how unimportant they seemed, and she was there to help in any way she could. She made my wedding so magical and she captured so many moments that I’ll cherish in my heart forever."

taylor & corey

"My favorite thing about working with Jaymi was her laugh! She made it easy. She made us relaxed and it didn't even feel like she was there taking photos."

"Jaymi is a very kind and intentional person which made her an automatic friend. She’s trustworthy, talented and kind—
 I recommend her to everyone! I’m so thankful to her for being a part of the best day of my life and for capturing it so well!"

LOVE NOTES

wherever your love takes me

If you’re the kind of couple who wants the intimacy of an elopement or the adventure of a destination wedding, I’m here for it. Traditional is beautiful, but the unconventional is magic. Your once-in-a-lifetime day deserves a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
 
I love the newness and uniqueness of a wedding story designed by a thoughtful, out-of-the-box couple. Documenting your day in an especially special place would be my dream come true. I will fly anywhere and follow every detail.
