A documentary approach to your life in photograph form. My photography is about documenting you and your true connection with each other. No stuffy posing or barking at you to turn your head 25 degrees to the right- just your natural chemistry and love for each other and those around you.
My photography focuses on intentional photos that tell your unique story, all the real emotion, happiness and excitement. I am not one for stuffy posing, my goal is honest documentation. I will be by your side to help you stay grounded and calm throughout the day. And I will dance with you at your reception. I want you to look through your photos and feel emotions you felt on that day for years to come. There is so much to document and experience on your wedding day, and I am here to capture them all.
No matter how big or small your wedding is going to be, all couples have one thing in common -- you are getting married! Let me be your third wheel and capture this special moment in your lives every step of the way.
I absolutely love shooting elopements and they are becoming increasingly more popular! An elopement is arguably the most intimate way to say "I do". It's just you, your partner, and your very closest friends and family.
First of all, you should know that I love engagement sessions! Engagement sessions are the perfect time for us to get to know each other. They give you a chance to see how I work and get comfortable in front of the camera and I get to learn all about you and your love story!
These are not your typical portrait sessions. Lifestyle sessions are full of authentic moments and interactions with each other. I won’t be doing stuffy posing or barking at you to smile or turn your head slightly. From in home, to downtown, to your favorite place as a family or couple, it’s all about you and your life!
Adventure sessions are more than just a photo session. It is a simple concept with a fancy name. Do what you love while I document it! Proposals, engagements, families, elopements or even just because. Learn more about adventure sessions in the Smokies below!
I got a permit to shoot in the Smoky Mountains because I absolutely love the outdoors. I grew up hiking and camping and I took it for granted living so close to the mountains. The older I've got my love for the beauty of the Smokies has grown and I wanted to be able to capture special memories for others like the ones I have there.
Jaimie is absolutely wonderful to work with! Her work is phenomenal. We are always blown away by the product of each of our sessions with her! She is so knowledgeable about how to get the best shots, guides us with our poses, and is passionate about the quality of her work. My husband hates getting his photo taken, but you'd never know it because Jaimie helps make our photoshoots so relaxing and fun! She truly goes above and beyond to ensure that we have every perfect shot possible, and MORE. We highly recommend her services and will always choose her as our photographer!
Jaimie did our engagement pictures while we were visiting Tennessee from our home state of Delaware. We really wanted to capture the mountains in our photos as it is our favorite vacation spot and Jaimie exceeded our expectations by far! Aside from being super friendly and personable the quality of our images were perfect. You would be missing out if you don't hire her for your professional photos.
We had the pleasure of hiring Jaimie for both our engagement and wedding pictures. Jaimie’s kind and easy going demeanor put us both at ease throughout the whole process. Jaimie is professional and a great communicator from our first interaction until far beyond our wedding day to ensure we loved our photos. Our photos are truly breathtaking! Jaimie’s talent and passion for photography shine through each picture and I am so happy with each of them!
Jaimie was amazing from the beginning. We hired her for our wedding day. She is so easy to work with. She was open to all special accommodations I had requested. From the beginning she was on top of everything. I knew I didn’t have to worry about a thing when I was working with her. She checked in often just to see how everything was going, and see if I needed anything from her to help make our day a little less stressful. Her work is amazing. So glad we had her on our special day. Thank you Jaimie!!
Since our engagement we have worked with Jaimie and she is the best to work with! She got all our shots on the wedding day and more! She made us laugh and feel comfortable during all our sessions and made sure to go above and beyond to get the shot! Our photos are amazing, the colors are so vivid! She was on her feet all day and even took the time to dance with us at the reception! I love working with her and will definitely be hiring her in the future!
I will be in touch soon.
I photographed my first wedding in 2011 a few months after graduating with my associates in photography, from there I have been able to second shoot with so many wonderful photographers and have spent the last 4 years photographing 10 to 25 weddings a year on my own.
I prefer to shoot the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset Monday-Friday. Saturdays are kept for weddings during busy season but if it's the off season I will photograph portrait sessions on certain Saturdays. Please contact me as I do my best to accommodate everyone.
YES!!!! I am so excited to have finally gotten my permit to photograph in the Smokies.
ABSOLUTELY! I love to visit new places. There is no travel for sessions/weddings within a 30 minute radius of Knoxville or in the Smokies- travel outside these areas are subject to a travel fee.
OF COURSE! I love to photograph couples and families somewhere that is special to them.
I have a Nikon Z7ii and D850 that I use regularly and a Nikon D750 as a back up. I love my 50mm and 35mm lens but I also use an 85mm.
You will get a link to a gallery where you can view, share and download your photos. Sessions are delivered in 2-4 weeks and weddings are delivered between 8-10 weeks.
YES, please do! I just ask that you tag my business in the post and do not crop or alter the photos.
