Candid Wedding Photography
Many of our couples tell us that capturing candid wedding photography moments is the most important aspect of their wedding day. Photojournalistic wedding photography styles offer real insight to all of the incredible feelings and emotions felt on the wedding day. The best wedding photographers will not only capture these candid wedding photos as they come, but the best & most experienced wedding photographers will anticipate these moments before they happen – allowing them time to make the best judgement calls on lighting & composition. The end result should be beautiful & timeless lifestyle wedding photography images you & your family will treasure for generations to come. See more information regarding candid wedding photography below.
"Jaimie and Kyle captured our wedding day perfectly. We booked them for our engagement photos and we knew then that they had to join us for our wedding too! They are such an incredible team and so much fun! ... they really put us at ease. Our wedding photos look like US in the best way possible. They captured our dynamic, our silliness, and of course our love for each other... You absolutely must book them for your big day."

"... [Jaimie] was patient, friendly, and professional throughout the whole experience, and seemed genuinely interested in our story and relationship... She was able to very naturally capture our moments of happiness, and was a pro at finding great shots. Even the sales aspect of their services are very well put together and thorough. 100% recommend, and we will be contacting them for any services we need in the future."

How many photos do I get from my wedding day?
With two photographers included in every wedding photography collection, we average 100 – 150 images per hour. For example – for a standard 8 hour wedding day, we typically deliver 800 – 1200 images. With fewer guests in attendance and fewer details to photograph, you can expect to receive fewer images on the spectrum. With more guests and more details to photograph, you can expect to receive more images.
Do I get ALL of the photos from my wedding day?
Prior to delivering your wedding photography end product, we remove duplicate images, test photos, blurry photos, and any other images that might dilute the quality of the overall end product. The end product we deliver averages 100-150 images per hour. (Learn more about our Editing & Post Production Process here)
What photography equipment do you use?
We use all the photography equipments! Haha, but seriously we bring whatever equipment we need to get the job done and then some. With camera & equipment rentals available to photographers all throughout the United States (and probably the world), we can also rent additional equipment at any time if a particular job requires equipment we don’t already own.
Do you include videography services?
As we are primarily a wedding photography studio, we specialize in creating the best possible photography for your wedding day. Although we do not currently offer videography as a service, we include a Preferred Vendors List (videographers included) to all of our booked wedding clients.
Do you have insurance?
Yes. We have general liability insurance and equipment insurance. We are happy to provide proof of insurance if your venue requires it.
How long have you been photographing weddings?
Jaimie Dee Photography was established in 2008! Depending on your assigned wedding day photographers, you will typically have between 10 - 30 years of combined experience on your Photo Team. (Learn more about Jaimie Dee Photography's background & experience here)
Do you have any full weddings we can view?
Yepp. Check out the blog here. You can see all of our latest weddings there. Be sure to also check out the extended slideshows that happen to accompany most of our blog posts as well.
Have you photographed at my wedding venue before?
Jaimie Dee Photography was established in 2008. If your wedding venue is in the metro Atlanta area, there is a high likelihood we've been to your venue before. (You can see previous venues we've worked at here - keep in mind, this is not a full conclusive list) In the event we have not photographed your venue in the past, (or you happen to be planning a wedding out of state, or outside the USA) we are happy to send samples of previous work from similar styled weddings. These previous wedding samples should help to offer insight for lighting conditions & general shooting styles for any given venue type. On the wedding day, we also typically arrive early to scout your location & check current lighting conditions.
Can you photograph my wedding in Switzerland/ Japan/ Hawaii/ insert cool place to get married here!
Yes, yes, and yassssss. We love to travel & service couples all over the globe. We simply charge additionally for travel + accommodation in addition to our regular collection pricing.
Do you offer any discounts?
There are very few circumstances in which we offer discounts. However, in addition to our typical Wedding Photography Collections, we offer alternative pricing for weekday Courthouse & Intimate weddings (Monday-Thursday). We also offer alternative pricing for non-wedding day bridal portrait sessions. We do also offer value-added specials from time to time as part of our Consultation Booking Special.
My wedding venue is very dark – Do you bring additional lighting?
YES! We bring…. ALL OF THE LIGHTS….. (Rihanna, anyone? 😜). On camera flashes, off camera flashes, and even video lights that act as personal spot lights (so you can ….. shine bright like a diamond…..😝). We bring lighting equipment to prepare for just about any situation that may or may not arise. And on the off chance your venue is a dark church or chapel that doesn’t permit additional lighting, we photograph with professional grade equipment that specializes in low light situations.
Do you edit ALL of my wedding photos?
Yes & no! All of the images you receive (100-150 images per hour) are corrected for color & exposure – meaning the images will be brightened or darkened as necessary and colors are edited to look as true to life as possible with a little added pop. We then do a natural beauty style edit that includes subtle skin smoothing, teeth whitening, and eye brightening – including the under eye area. We also do our best to light and pose our couples correctly while photographing to create the most flattering images for every skin type, body size and shape – this should minimize the need for additional retouching. Our goal while photographing is to create the most flattering images that shouldn’t require additional retouching most of the time. (Learn more about our Editing & Post Production here)
Do you offer additional retouching? Like SUPER skin smoothing, ULTRA teeth whitening, body shaping, object removal, etc?
Your images are initially edited to look as true to life as possible with a little added pop (learn more about the process here). If you require additional custom retouching, we include this service complimentary for art pieces commissioned during your Ordering Premiere (learn more here). Your commissioned art pieces will be retouched to your level of specification to the best of our abilities, and even tinted or toned to perfectly match any room you wish to place your artwork in. This complimentary retouching service is also available for all images placed in your wedding album.
Additional Custom Retouching is currently only available for art pieces commissioned at your Order Premiere and currently unavailable as a stand alone service. If you have additional questions on this, feel free to contact us.
Do you back up our images?
Yaaaaaaas. And our backups have backups! While photographing images on the wedding day, our professional grade cameras record identical images to two separate cf/ sd cards simultaneously. Upon returning to our studio from the wedding day, images are immediately uploaded to our local server as well as well as backed up by the cloud to an offsite server. The cf/ sd cards are then stored in a fire proof/ waterproof secure vault on site until the images are shared with you in an online photo gallery. At any given time there are 2-3 copies of your photos stored on and offsite. (Learn more about the Backup & Post Production Process here)
What happens if we cancel or reschedule our wedding?
In order to reserve your date, we require a signed wedding contract and a retainer payment. This ensures your Photo Team does not accept other photography work on your date. In the event of a cancellation or rescheduled wedding, our studio suffers a loss. If this cancellation/ rescheduling occurs 60 days or more before your wedding, liquidated damages include your retainer payment. If this cancellation/ rescheduling occurs within 60 days or less of your wedding, then liquidated damaged include all monies paid. Contact us for additional questions.
