about me

Hi, I'm Jamie

welcome to jamie v photography

With over a decade of experience and photographing professionally since 2011, my journey began with the drive to capture the images and feel of people, experiences, and landscapes. I am now living my dream, capturing beautiful relationships and locations. 

I was raised on a farm and spent much of my time outdoors - my favorite childhood memories are of family road trips, riding my banana-seated Huffy bike, and playing in our tree house in the woods. I spent my time indoors reading book after book and covering my bedroom walls with magazine image collages.

The loss of my Dad re-emphasized for me the importance of capturing the people and places that you love now - as the photographs and memories are what remain and help us remember how we felt. It is my daily intention to be grateful for every moment and follow what brings me joy and curiosity in this beautiful life. 

Known for being optimistic and collaborative, my intention and focus is to bring your photography vision to light.

inspired by love, nature, and travel, I document the beautiful things in life.
