Meet Jayme

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 
― Maya Angelou

Hello Beautiful! I'm Jayme - 36 year old wife, mom, and midwest photographer + filmmaker. I'm here to be your friend and biggest supporter as you enter the most memorable times of your life. I always strive to create a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experience, while telling your story in the real, raw moments. How he looked at you on your wedding day, the pure joy of your children running in a field, the excitement following the announcement of your engagement, and real emotion captured right in front of my lens for you to cherish for the rest of your life!

So you are probably wondering, how this all started? Great! I'd love to share my journey with you. The very beginning was back in high school while taking a film photography course in 1998. I fell in love with the way you could be creative with composition. Then in 2008, I was laid off from a factory job, and that was the turning point. I decided to pursue my dreams to be a photographer, while working. It wasn't until 2015, that I went fully full-time, and I haven't looked back. I have been photographing weddings for 9 years, and portraits for 10. 

I have a background in Business with a minor in Accounting. I attended college from 2010-2014, which would actually turn out to benefit my own business later. I'm a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and several other entrepreneur related associations, and am fully insured with both equipment and liability policies. I try to offer advice and mentoring as much as I can to other creatives, in addition to working with the best couples and families that I could ever ask for! I truly love what I do, and hope that shines through in my work!
