this is about you

Moments pass too quickly and memories fade too soon. I for one want to cling tightly to all the joy, relive those moments of sheer happiness again and again, and keep stories and photos to pass on to my children. Investing in Jaymi Joy Photo is so much more than just a new profile picture. Photographs capture and keep those fleeting moments alive forever.

That’s just one reason I hate the words “client” and “customer.” When you book with me, it goes so much further than emails and invoices. I consider you a friend. I want to keep in touch, celebrate your milestones. I’m not here to make a buck and cross you off my to-do list. You matter. Your story matters. Being chosen to document your joy, your moments, and your memories is an honor beyond words, and one I don’t take lightly. I want to tell your story with all the love, grace, and respect in the world.

That’s what you deserve. That’s how important your moments are.

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

Firstly, our collaboration begins long before the actual wedding day. In addition to sending you my Wedding Guide, I will make myself available in the months leading up to your special day for any questions or concerns! I want to be a resource for you as you plan and prepare for your wedding.

01 /

When that long-awaited day arrives, you are the star of the show, my friend. I will be there to help and support you in whatever way you need so that you can have the best wedding possible. Whether you desperately need a coffee or help with the centerpieces, I got you.  

02 /

Your priorities are my priorities. I don’t have a hidden agenda, nor am I looking to pad my portfolio or suit my own preferences. I am here in every way to tell your story and capture the things that matter most to you, whatever those may be. You share your dream and I will run with it.

PHOTO EDITING

WEDDING prints

a glimpse Behind the Scenes

The behind-the-scenes, “unglamorous,” and time-intensive work of editing consumes a tremendous portion of my process. I consider these hours some of my most important and creative. I gently edit my photos to bring out the warm tones and natural colors already captured in the frame, so that you can feel the dream all over again.  

memories you can hold

Until you print your photographs, they are just data. Your photo experience is only complete when you hold your photos in your hands—when an album rests on your coffee table and prints hang on the walls in your home. After we have gone to such great lengths to create and capture these beautiful moments in time, why would we let those images live and die on our screens?

SLIDESHOW

All The Highlights

Along with your gallery, I create a photo slideshow curated specifically and thoughtfully for your day. Consider it a retelling of all the romance in chronological order, from first light to last song and dance. In my opinion, it’s the very best way to first relive the magic. Watching your story with music transports you back to the day itself, and every precious moment. Cue the waterworks.

 

"We found Jaymi through a friend of mine on Instagram. When I saw her wedding photos I fell instantly in love with Jaymi’s work and knew I couldn’t have anyone else. I didn’t have any hesitations about working with her because looking at her website and Instagram I could see that she was very organized, creative, and professional. We chose her to be our photographer instead of another photographer because her photos appeared very professional and the edits were outstanding! She captured others so well and we knew that she’d be an amazing photographer for our wedding. What we liked best about working with her is that she made taking photos so much fun! It was never a dull moment and she always had a creative idea and was so kind and helpful to show us how to pose. When we first asked her to be our photographer she answered promptly and very professionally and asked many good questions I never would have thought of. We would highly recommend her to others because she is so much fun to work with, is always prompt on answering questions, is creative, and always keeping others excited. Her work captures others so well and she creates so many poses you don’t see everyday and she is always trying new things. The most important thing people should know about working with Jaymi is that she will always be willing to answer any questions or concerns and adjust correctly. She 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. When we had our “first dance” in the snow, that was my favorite moment of my wedding day because it was so romantic and special to Trey and I! I wouldn’t have had that if Jaymi hadn’t suggested it. We are so thankful that she captured a day we will never forget and we hope we can do more shoots with her in the future!"

take a look at some frequently asked questions

still on the fence?

I do! My passport is up to date and ready to be used. Any extra fees associated with traveling are communicated upfront— you never have to worry about any hidden expenses. If you want to book me in a location that I already want to visit, I’ll give you a discount! Let’s explore this big, beautiful world together, ok?


Do you travel for weddings and sessions?

It definitely varies! For weddings, you'll typically receive 500-1000 photos depending on the amount of coverage you have. For couple sessions, it's usually 75-150. You don't need to worry though, I'll never leave good photos out of your gallery— I give you all of the best images we create together!

how many photos can we expect?

Good things take time. I’d never want to rush through your gallery and sacrifice any quality for the sake of getting your pictures back to you sooner than the next photographer. Your photos, your stories, your memories, they’re too valuable for that. As anxious as you are to receive your pictures, trust me, they’re worth waiting for. I try to be very communicative about when your photos will be done, but if you’re curious about the status of your gallery, my inbox is always open. :)

All that said, my typical turnaround time looks something like this:

Engagement and Couple Sessions – 2-3 weeks post-processing time.
Weddings and Elopements – 8-12 weeks post-processing time.

what's your typical turnaround time?

I love shooting in all kinds of weather and I always encourage my couples to embrace nature as it is. Rain, wind, sun, snow— it adds to the scene and helps your images to be truly unique. However, if the weather is unsafe or could potentially damage my gear, I'm always happy to postpone to a different date. 

what if the weather is bad?

Yes! I send a handful of photos 24-48 hours after your wedding or session is finished. That way you have something to tide you over + pictures to post and share with friends and family while you wait for the rest of your gallery!

Will we see any sneak peeks before our gallery is finished?

When I’m finished editing your session I'll upload all of the images to a password-protected online gallery. You'll receive a link to be able to view, download, share, and print your images directly from that site!

how do I get my pictures back after my session?

Yes! All of your images are printable at no extra cost. If you share your images online, I only ask that you photo credit or tag me. :)

Do I have the right to print my images?

I do! I have a few select photographers that I hire to help bring your vision to life. I’ve worked very closely with each of them, so we’ve learned how to coordinate with each other to ultimately provide the best wedding gallery and the best experience possible. However, bearing your budget in mind, I let you decide. There are scenarios where I will highly recommend them, but the choice is always yours. 

Do you work with a second shooter?

All I need is a signed contract + a 20% non-refundable deposit to make it official! 

how do we book you?
