Awesome photographer!!! 9/8/2013 James & Danieka

Reviewed on 9/21/2013 Danieka M

These guys are EVERYWHERE!!!! Jamie and Andy were awesome. They were all over the place if i even looked like i needed them they were there. All of our photos are gorgeous and really caught the moment everyone in my family loves them. The turn around time on getting photos back is great too. They are the sweetest and best photographers i have ever dealt with.Will definitely be using them in any future photography required situations. My parents have 3 more girls left to be married and we will be seeing them for each wedding my mom has already decided.

Superstars!

This is a truly professional company. Sometimes you don't get professional and creative but with a name like Hippie Love Photography you know is doing to make your events as special as mine. My Mother in Law who is usually a reserved woman cried when she saw how many great moments were captured. I would recommend this company for more than weddings. Honestly, they really understand what photography is all about and how to please there clients. However I never felt like a client. They too time to get to know us so they could meet our expectations!


Dream(s) Come True

Jamie & Andy are an amazing duo! They are professional, inspired, and attentive to the needs of their clients. I contacted them initially because I was impressed with the high quality, creative nature of their photographs. We did an engagement portrait session in addition to our wedding day photography, and they worked with our budget and took the time necessary to get quality images. No rush--just art. My husband and I are both rather introverted, but we felt very at ease working with them. They love their work, and it shows. We recommend them with all our hearts.


Free Engagement Session

Reviewed on 2/28/2014 Stephanie D

I won a free engagement session with Hippie Love from a local Tampa bridal show I attended. From the moment Andy & Jamie contacted me I could tell they were very friendly and professional. They were great about working out a time and place for our engagement shoot. We only shot for about 30-45 minutes but Andy got some great shots that our family and friends all love. Unfortunately we ended up going with a different photographer for our wedding due to our wanting two photographers and all day coverage for a little bit of a lower price, but overall I'd definitely recommend Hippie Love Photography.


Cool Photographers! 9/8/13 J&D

Reviewed on 10/02/2013 Casey M

Jamie and Andy were cool they took really nice pictures of my family and me at my sisters wedding they were getting picture of everyone and all the cute moments but they were not really pushy or in the way. If my sister or James looked for them they were there immediately and Jamie took some fun pictures of us getting ready n the bridal suite before the wedding. They did a great job!!!!!

My sisters wedding was so pretty and the photographers were great. They took really nice pictures of all of us and we had a nice time. They didn't take long to take group pictures and we all looked so good in every picture i have seen. They were all over the wedding taking pictures of us and our family.I would use them for my wedding one day.

Jamie and Andy were so professional and from the photos that my daughter has shown me they caught all of the beauty of their special day. Watching them and working with them as they posed us and caught candid shots was amazing they were everywhere at once and catching all of the moments.

My beautiful bride and I were very happy with our photographers Andy was there early and helped with our boutonnieres. They were really cool people they were all over the place and we got our preview photos 2 weeks after our wedding our families loved them and so did we. I would definitely recommend Hippie Love Photography for anybodys wedding.


May 3rd

Reviewed on 5/22/2013 Courtney C

My wedding was on May 3rd and I chose Hippie Love (Previously Jamie Michelle) for my photography and I have not been disappointed! They were so quick at getting the photos done at the wedding and left plenty of time for my groom and I to have a great time at our wedding! I have been to weddings were photographers are pushy and constantly in the way, but they were so discreet, I barely knew they were there! I had a great time and can't wait to see the rest of the photos!! Thank you Jamie and Andy!!!


Do NOT hire this photographer!

Reviewed on 5/07/2013 Kristen (

This company used to be called Jamie Michelle Photography. If you do an internet search you will find many negative reviews under both company names. Instead of fixing the business, they just changed the name! Here's a summary of my experience: --after Jamie collects your deposit, you will not hear from her. I was so nervous that she wasn't going to show up on my wedding day I had to have a back-up photorapher ready. She showed up. --photos were okay, not spectacular. There are a lot of photographers out there who know how to run a business and treat their customers with respect. This is not one of them! --it took 8 months for me to receive my photos. This was after many unanswered emails and voicemails. Her voicemail is usually always full. If you do get to leave a message, she does not call you back. --it took 1.5 years AFTER MY WEDDING to receive my wedding album. At that point I just was not impressed with the quality of the album. I ended up doing one myself online and it turned out better than the one Jamie did. --I do NOT recommend this company. No bride should have to go through what I did. You will find many negative reviews out there about Jamie Michelle Photography and Hippie Love Photography (same company). Beware!!!


Ridiculous amout of time to get pictures

Reviewed on 12/08/2012 Dennielle S

My wedding was September 22 . Jamie and her partner were great very sweet people . She is very talented . After the wedding she told me she would contact me in a week and after that I struggled to tried to get a hold of her through all ways of contact .. It took her 3 months to even send me a few sneak peak photos. I was extremely upset and hurt because on her company Facebook page she was posting every other wedding she has done after mine and I never saw mine at all. I wish I could have just got my pictures and could be writing an amazing review on her but Im so upset because when I finally get my pics no one will care anymore to see them because it took forever and a day !!!..( and We upgraded to a platinum package )


BEAUTIFUL, COLORFUL, AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY!

Reviewed on 9/29/2012 Kelly H

I am SOOO happy with the photos that Jamie Michelle Photography took of our wedding. Jamie is amazing... so friendly yet professional. She did such a wonderful job of making everyone feel at ease. She was everywhere we needed her to be that day but was never pushy or in the way. The shots she got of our special day are wonderful. She has a colorful, fluid style to her photography that I love. Jamie captured both the posed photos and the more 'real' moments amazingly well. We got married on a yacht and space was tight but Jamie navigated everything with ease. She took photos up to the very end and was always willing to take requests from guests for photos, etc. I highly recommend her and her team. We are so excited that we have these photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you Jamie!


Great job

Reviewed on 8/28/2012 Rikka C

Jamie was wonderful to work with from the start. We emailed when necessary and she kept in contact with me through out the wedding planning days. She even adjusted to the different changes I had requested just days before the wedding. She was professional at the wedding without being overly pushy. I haven't received my photos yet but Im excited to see the finished product

Andy tooky engagement pictures at ft. Desoto and my wedding pictures at the Rusty Pelican. They have a new office manager now and my calls and emails were always responded to quickly. Andy was very easy going and was able to get my fiancé to warm up quickly. The pictures from the engagement shoot were beautiful. I hope my wedding pictures come out great!

Very Satisfied

I would recommend Jamie to anyone. She is very professional, yet fun and stylish with her photos. She is flexible in that she will try any ideas that you have of your own but also has a lot of ideas herself. She seemed to be catching every photo opportunity we had. She edited her favorite photos and had them emailed to me before I even got back from the honeymoon!


An Amazing Experience

Reviewed on 4/27/2012 Kali K

I was married on Treasure Island Beach less than one week ago. Prior to my wedding I had chosen Jamie to do an engagement shoot. Upon first meeting her I knew that she was the photographer for our wedding. She was young, innovative, creative and had so much spunk. She is visibly passionate for the art of photography and made me feel nothing but gorgeous on both the day of my engagement shoot and wedding. She was easy to talk to and willing to go above and beyong for any ideas we had. Photographs are all that will be left of our wedding day and years from now, when I show my children these memories I will be grateful I chose Jamie as my historian. She documents our memories beautifully through her photography and I cannot say enough good things about her. I can honestly say it was an honor including her in our nuptials as she truly was a blessing to work with.


Jamie Michelle-Don't get married without her!

Reviewed on 4/25/2012 Heather M

Jamie and her partner, Andy were an absolute dream to work with. After 2 months of drought in Florida, our wedding day was essentially a typhoon! They made certain that I, the bride, wasn't completely melting down and were so unobtrusive we barely even realized they were there. From their professionalism to their incredible know-how and talent, I would recommend them every day and twice on Sunday! Thank you again, Jamie and Andy!

Captures the moment!

Jamie, and her other photographer, captured the moment for my daughter and new son's wedding beautifully! The Florida Aquarium had a nice setting to begin with but Jamie Michelle Photography reflected the lasting memories as if you continue to be there. Thank you!


Beautiful Photos!!!

Reviewed on 1/11/2012 dealey d

Jamie was so easy to work with and the photos are so beautiful!!!! Sometimes I can't believe it was my wedding! She was very professional at the wedding and most of the time we didn't even know she was taking pictures. She put everyone at ease and was able to get everyone to cooperate with the family photos! She was sometime slow to respond to us but we received our photos in 8 weeks as specified and they were gorgeous!


Jamie made my day!

Reviewed on 1/10/2012 Betty R

Jamie was an absolute savior on my wedding day. I was a nervous wreck, my maid of honor was late, and there were a dozen little things that went wrong. Jamie stayed relaxed and calm and helped to keep us on schedule. She was very flexible about incorporating my (somewhat bossy) sister's suggestions and helped to create a little space for my groom and I to take our pictures. We got our pictures back on time and are super happy with them. One or two of the shots look like something out of a magazine and we plan to hang them in our home! Jamie was also amazing about capturing the details of my wedding. I spent a lot of time hand-making my decorations and was very pleased to see that she didn't miss one thing. There are tons of fun candid pics from the reception and she even managed to get my Grandmother dancing in one of them. I would recommend her again and again.


Poor customer service and communication

Reviewed on 1/09/2012 Samantha W

In retrospect, I would have not hired this photographer. I was left feeling that she was NOT DEPENDABLE.When my fiancé and I first contacted Jamie for our wedding,she consistently responded by the end of the day-she and I would often send multiple emails back and forth within the same hour. However, after we gave her our deposit, her communication and customer service became unreasonably delayed and unacceptably poor.The package we purchased came with an engagement session.It was 3 WEEKS before she finally responded to our 1st inquiry about when we could do our session with her,and we confirmed a date and general location for our session.I then sent MULTIPLE UNANSWERED emails over the next 6 DAYS asking about the specific meeting location and time, as both my fiancé and I work,and I needed to coordinate a time to meet with my makeup lady. Two days before our scheduled session,I finally called her because she WASN'T RESPONDING to my emails.After yet another unanswered phone call and unreturned voicemail, I called again. When she finally answered, she was, in my opinion,EXTREMELY rude, unapologetic,and acted as though I was inconveniencing her.She then proceeded to list all of the other sessions/kid’s activities she was involved in, and stated that because of everything else going on in her life, our engagement session (only 2 days later), seemed “like a long way off” for her to think about.After our phone call, we sent her a letter via email expressing our disappointment in her communication and customer service,and stated that if she was unable to improve her customer service from that point on, that we would not continue to use her services.After that email was sent, Jamie texted, called,and left a voicemail the next day, each time repeating that she had not yet checked her email.It's only my opinion,but I feel this is just another point to the fact that she is not dependable.We moved forward with our session,and had a follow-up phone conversation with her several days later regarding our experience with her thus far.Again, I feel that she was UNAPOLOGETIC;she explained that she is difficult to reach because she is 100% committed to whoever’s wedding is scheduled that week.While this is great for the ‘bride of the week,’ that leaves me,and I can only imagine other brides feeling the same way,wondering where she is, and wondering if we will receive the services expected for the good money we paid.We received our session disc 4 weeks later. Supposedly, she sent a disc prior to that, but it was never delivered. She did not communicate to me that she even sent the 1st disc, and gave no indication of surprise that I never received it in the first place.We then requested the color version of an image that she processed in black & white. It was FIVE DAYS with EMAIL and MULTIPLE PHONE CALLS before she finally acknowledged and responded to our request.Jamie has never sincerely apologized for her poor customer service and communication.She avoids admitting fault for the issues we experienced and shifts blame by stating that she is ‘sorry that YOU felt’ a certain way. She also initially told us she was licensed (08/2011).The current business license for Jamie Michelle Photography on the FL Dept of State Division of Corporations website reports an effective date of 10/26/11. Despite all the issues faced,I still sent her an email thanking her for our session just to be cordial; however, ultimately, we had to terminate our contract with her.
