Love & Family

this is where

I grew up in a small town along the Pacific Coast:  Monterey, California.  
I've explored most of the US, some of Europe, and a bit of China..
there's a wanderlust in my heart (so, if we're traveling to our shoot, hurray!!)  
I currently live in Charlotte, NC, where I pour myself into my photography business.
Wedding photography, family photography, and documentary days are my primary services.  
Service being the key word- I'm HUGE on customer service and my biggest goal is for you to have a fun experience, feel supported and comfortable during every phase, and end up with meaningful images to cherish forever (and come back next year, for more!).  
Most of my clients are repeat customers! 
Capturing elements of connection and emotion in thoughtful ways-
whether we're at your wedding, at your home, or documenting a Day in the Life,
you'll see yourself deeply connected to the people you love. 

Born to love abundantly, feel deeply, and notice all the details,
I'm honored to capture your story!

my favorite things >

1. Hanging out with my kids (they're 2 and 3 years old!) 

2. being outdoors.  especially near the water.  if I have an extra hour on a nice day, you'll find me Rowing a crew boat (preferably a double scull) I got hooked in college and still love the motion and precision of it. 

3. Travel- I have a huge wanderlust. Especially to places where I don't speak the language. 

4. Tacos and mojitos. Mmmmm!

5. learning- lifelong bookworm and always looking for interesting classes to take.  from combat hapkido to fine-art films, sign me up!

My style is to focus on
playful, meaningfulbeautiful connections.
I offer a hybrid approach combining
posed and documentary style, for  
wedding and family sessions.

I am fortunate to partner with other very talented photographers, and enjoy second shooting.  These are examples of Images I have created as a second shooter.

- kenneth mills

"Jamie just shot my wedding two weeks ago, and my bride and I could not be happier about the outcome. As a photographer, Jamie is technically excellent, and she's extremely detail-oriented, buttoned up and professional. As an artist, Jamie is highly instinctual, fluid and fresh in her approach."

- rachel barker

"From the moment you meet jamie, you get a sense that she is one of those rare people and photographers in this world. She's warm, friendly, approachable, patient, and incredible with children.

- lauren moore

"We've had several sessions with Jamie and walked away from each one feeling amazed with her skill, warmth, and professionalism. She worked miracles to get my newborn and toddler to cooperate, and she created breathtaking pictures of our (typically very unphotogenic) family. We've used several other family photographers, and Jamie stands high above the rest. She is truly gifted."

I offer local and destination wedding and engagement photography, combining loosely guided poses and documentary coverage of the day.  Because each couple and each event is so unique, we meet in person or online, to discuss details and your vision, and I provide you with a customized quote based on our initial conversation. I also have a helpful informational booklet filled with ideas, and typical images captured during a day's timeline- I'd be happy to send you a copy, just contact me and mention you'd like to chat wedding details!

Family sessions are meant to capture the bond between family members. We meet on-location and capture the special dynamic between children and parents. I work with your entire family to guide you into comfortable poses and playful moments so that we create a balanced gallery of traditional poses as well as authentic moments that capture your special family!  Sessions last approximately 1 hour, and include approximately 20 minutes of posed images with the rest of the time dedicated to playful moments.  For Family Portrait sessions, Birthday Cake Smash, or Styled Child sessions, we discuss styling and activities prior to our shoot.
