"she goes above and beyond to make sure you feel right at home with her."

Four things I think that set Jaymi apart from many other photographers are: 1) She is incredibly prompt and professional, 2) She really does think for her clients about what she can do to make sure they love the outcome of their photos, 3) Her style is timeless, elegant, bright, and beautiful (shoots the kind of photos that will never go out of style), and 4) She is incredibly personable & goes above and beyond to make sure you (as the client) feel right at home with her- like you're her sister or her best friend. We truly feel like we struck a gold mine with finding Jaymi and I felt at ease on my wedding day because I knew she would turn out the most jaw dropping photos I could ever imagine. 

FRANKIE & DEREK

"She captured the most important day of our lives so beautifully and effortlessly.."

From start to finish, Jaymi was absolutely amazing, professional and easy to work with! To have had the honor of working with someone who is SO passionate, kind, patient, knowledgeable and skilled is something we are forever grateful for. She captured the most important day of our lives so beautifully and effortlessly. She communicated throughout the process, worked calmly through the chaos, and I cannot find the words for how much we love the final results.

SARAH & MICAH

"she will become a fast friend to any client she serves"

Jaymi is beyond amazing. Not only is she gifted creatively, but she truly is the whole package. Bubbly, adventurous, flexible, and kind - she will become a fast friend to any client she serves. You'll wind up with stunning photos to cherish and having had a great time during the process too.

SANAM & KAVEET

"we should have known that rain or shine, she was going to deliver the most dreamy photos."

Bringing Jaymi on as our wedding photographer was no doubt the best decision we made in the planning process. She is an artist and talented does not begin to cover it. 

When she delivered our timeless photos from our Chicago engagement shoot, we knew we wanted to fly her out to New Jersey to photograph our wedding day. 

It ended up raining on our wedding day but she quickly got on board with the last minute change of plans. We were nervous about how it would impact our pictures, but knowing how talented she is, we should have known that rain or shine, she was going to deliver the most dreamy photos. Highly recommend Jaymi for anyone seeking a photographer who combines skill, kindness, and a touch of magic.
