"We had a great experience! Jaimie guided us through our engagement session with such ease. She spent time prior over the phone and via email educating us on how to not only pick our outfits but how to make our poses not ‘pose-y’. Our engagement shoot seemed to only last a few minutes, it was never awkward and I know both my fiance and I loved it. Jaimie gave us direction while still allowing our personalities to shine through! Definitely would recommend her to anyone!"

"Jaimie and Kyle did our engagement and wedding photos. They were phenomenal to work with and we absolutely loved how our photos turned out. They were super transparent and paid a lot of attention to detail through with the whole planning process and delivered amazing photos from both of our sessions. They were easygoing, laid back, fun to work with, and relatable, which helped us relax and enjoy the sessions even more. I would absolutely recommend if you need a photographer in the ATL area."

"We had the best experience with Jaimie taking our engagement pictures at Piedmont Park! My fiancé and I are clueless in front of the camera but Jaimie guided us the whole way through and it was much less uncomfortable than we were expecting! ... She was so well organized throughout the entire process of scheduling, preparing, and executing the engagement photos and it was very evident that she has a lot of experience... So glad we chose Jaimie for our engagement photos!"
