JK Photos started as a dream inside Jamie’s head.
She was practically born with a camera in her hand, and annoyed her family constantly as she shoved it in everyone’s face and caught some amazing - albeit not so flattering - images of their lives. All she wanted was to document her life and the lives of those around her. She found that with a camera in her hand she could capture the immense beauty surrounding her, and she loved the feeling she got when a friend was amazed at how good they looked in one of her photographs. As her skills and equipment improved family members and friends started asking her to take their family pictures, senior portraits, and maternity photos. She worked tirelessly to learn the ins and outs of her camera, poring over textbooks and online tutorials and even the camera’s manual. She practiced like crazy, and soon was being asked to photograph weddings. Armed with a degree in business and a fierce desire to make this work, her passion project suddenly became a real life business. Now she wants nothing more than to completely disregard societal beauty standards and help all of her clients feel gorgeous and loved.
Then there were 2.
Before she even accepted her first job as a wedding photographer, Jamie knew she wanted to be a 2 person team. She loved the idea of getting different perspectives throughout the day, having a photographer for both “getting ready” sides, and having that 2nd person as a helpful assistant to reel everyone in during group portraits. So her husband Corey said he would help with the first wedding, which he nailed, and pretty soon he was capturing some of the most gorgeous shots of the day. So now JK Photos Wedding Photography is a husband-wife duo!
Branding and lifestyle sessions are still captured solely by Jamie, but Corey often comes along to help with equipment as needed.
Meet our team:
I live for ice cream, chai lattes, tacos, and pizza!
I am a pescatarian (the only meat I eat is fish), and a hippie at heart.
My family is my happy place, and my soul is most at peace near the ocean.
I am the mother of 1 human baby and 3 furbabies, all of whom fill my heart with love every day.
I am married to the man of my dreams, who I met when I was 16 and never stopped loving. Together we love nature walks, coffee shops, movie nights, and laughing until it hurts (usually at ourselves).
My mom, sister, and I are incredibly close, we have matching bracelets that we wear every day and an ongoing group text that almost never makes sense to a "normal" person because we all speak each other's language.
I am obsessed with Gilmore Girls.
I am constantly looking for ways to live a fuller, healthier life.
I believe that love always wins. Always.
Corey is an elusive, mysterious man with too many responsibilities and not enough hours in the day. More info about him coming soon. ;)
