European Chic Engagement at the Villa Terrace in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

August 1, 2022

Kristen + Austin – an engagement session inspired by museum dates, wine tastings, and Italian summer evenings.

When Kristen and Austin inquired for their May 2023 wedding taking place at the stunning Haley Mansion, we had an instant connection. She explained how she wanted a high end old money inspired wedding design, and how my work aligned with her vision, and I knew we would be perfect for each other. I always love it when a potential client aligns with me, and Kristen was no exception.

The picturesque scenery of the Villa Terrace in Milwaukee was the perfect setting for Kristen and Austin’s European Chic engagement session. Kristen opted for a sophisticated look with Manolo Blahnik heels, Stunning pearl earrings from Dior, tying it all together with an undeniably gorgeous statement dress designed by L’espoir in Vietnam. Every detail made my jaw drop, and this moment was truly made for them.

After we wrapped, Kristen and Austin took me out to experience Korean BBQ for the first time (I’m obsessed needless to say), and we talked for over an hour about our faith. It was such a refreshing moment and I left Milwaukee with a full cup.

Here’s to the gorgeous couple and luxury engagement sessions that take my breath away. Looking forward to celebrating with this sweet couple at their wedding next May at The Haley Mansion! If it’s anywhere close to how their luxury engagement session went, then the wedding will be what dreams are made of.




"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. 


"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.


"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.


"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.
