the why and the how much
Time is a thief. And the older you get, the faster time moves. Before you know it, 10 and 15 and 20 years are gone. Photo sessions are how we preserve those moments. How we freeze time. It's how we document our own lives. From engagements to weddings to babies and families, it's important to us as humans to show the world, "This is me. This is us. This is how we were. And through all the good and bad, I wouldn't have it any other way."
Invest in yourself. I promise you... you are so worth it.
Document this time in your life. The excitement of a pending marriage. The gummy baby kisses and lost baby teeth and skinned knees. It's all part of us. Of who we are.
*Expect to have fun.
*Expect to laugh a lot. (I mean, a LOT)
*Expect some silliness (hence the laughing a lot!)
*Expect to feel a little closer to your partner or your family (or whoever you're taking pics with!)
*Expect to love your photos!
Most couples don't need nearly as much photography coverage time as they initially think! During our consultation, we'll go over your wedding day plans and figure out what works best for you!
Generally, I cover the tail end of getting ready (the last 45ish minutes) through about the first 2-2.5 hours of your reception.

Yes I do! I love shooting boudoir. If that's something you're interested in, hit me up! I'll send you some info. (I take my boudoir clients' privacy very seriously, and I'm anti-creepy people, so I no longer have a dedicated boudoir website.)
I totally feel you. That's why I create a safe space for you to be your true selves. You'll find yourself relaxed and having fun and you won't for one second wonder what to do with your hands.
Whether you're sneaking off somewhere just the two of you, or you're planning a more intimate event with just your nearest and dearest, elopements and small weddings are some of my favorite things to photograph!
My elopement + small wedding coverage is tailored to fit your exact needs.

It is a privilege and an honor to be invited into someone's world, whether it's for an hour or an entire day. I take that very seriously. I want each and every one of my clients to feel comfortable and loved. You're not there to be my models. I'm there for you. To be your advocate and help you enjoy your time together, even if it is just for an hour. I strive to create a safe space, free of judgement, where you can let go and be your true selves.
She focused on capturing candid photos of genuine interactions, while still managing to find the most beautiful light. The day before our wedding all weather channels were predicting a 100% chance of rain for the following day and forecasting 1 to 2 inches to collect. Though the weather is something you absolutely can't control, especially in St. Louis, we'd be lying if we didn't admit the forecast was the biggest factor adding to our stress level. Unsure of what circumstances we would find ourselves in that day, Jaimie sent us an email listing all the various options she had thought of in case of inclement weather. She probably didn't realize just how relieved that email made us feel. In that moment we knew that no matter where we'd end up exchanging our vows the following day, Jaimie would make it work and capture something that we loved. Jaimie was a huge part of making us feel relaxed in that moment. She is obviously super talented, but also has a great ability to connect with her clients. We could't recommend more highly!

We knew right away that she was right for us. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and I just LOVE the amazing candid shots she captures. Her photos capture real moments, and she still even fits in those classic posed photos to that the grandparents want. We were running so behind schedule at our wedding and Jaimie and the second photographer handled it with pure ease and worked so well with our rowdy wedding party. You cannot go wrong with choosing Jaimie as your wedding photographer. Her images will capture the emotions and laughter so you can continue to relive it all and she is incredibly sweet and down to earth!

Amazing! I cannot say enough good things about Jaimie and her work! I spent so much time researching photographers, so afraid to make the wrong choice and wanting beautiful photos that matched my vision. I stumbled upon Jamie's website and knew instantly I had to book her. After hearing from so many vendors that my date was not available I was so nervous when emailing photographers. So I am sure you can imagine my excitement and relief when Jaimie quickly responded that she still had availability that day. I felt so comfortable meeting with her for the first time and discussing my plans for the day. After getting our engagement photos back, I was even more excited. They exceeded what I had in mind! And then... our wedding photos. I can't even find the words to explain how happy my husband and I were with her gorgeous documentation of our big day! There were so many things (that I missed in the whirlwind of that day) that she captured so beautifully. Some of my favorites are candids of our friends and family at the reception. It is so great to have those memories! I can't wait to work with her again in the future!
