Our three priorities for the wedding were the rings, the dress, and—most importantly—the photos. In our hunt for the perfect photographer, we interviewed 6 different photographers spanning from Colorado Springs to Denver. After our fifth interv...
iew, we were feeling disheartened. Then came Jaimie! We scheduled time to meet with Jaimie and she offered to drive down from Denver to Colorado Springs at a Starbucks only five minutes from our house.
She went out of her way to make the process seamless.
Her photos are of the caliber of magazine advertisements and enhanced with an eye to capture the special moments. With her background as a marketing and advertisement photographer, Jaimie makes her clients look like rock stars. Jaimie is effervescent and made us feel comfortable and confident during our photo shoots. My husband and I had a few bumps along the way with the wedding and Jaimie smoothed everything right out. We also had a few situations where we ran behind schedule and were late to a few meetings—but Jaimie was patient and happy to jump right in when we got there. The week before the wedding, we had our pre-wedding meeting with Jaimie and she came down to the venue (Hill Side Gardens) during the rehearsal to map out the scenery. To prep further, she provided us with an extensive questionnaire that covered everything you could have thought of, and then some things you didn’t realize were important.
On the day of the wedding, Jaimie came with me to my hair appointment where she captured some amazing shots of my accessories and went above and beyond. Not only did she capture every moment, but she also found a spot for me to do my makeup that had MUCH better lighting than the bathroom of the salon. At the venue, she was everywhere at once and managed to keep all of the family inline and happy (which is a miracle in and of itself).
Have I mentioned how blown away we were by the photos? I didn’t even know that we could look this amazing. Jaimie found the best lighting, angles, and edited the photos to perfection. You know how when you get photos back from some photographers and the photos come back jumbled up and disorganized? Not with Jaimie! On the link to our wedding photos, Jaimie organized everything into separate albums labeled by the events of the day. We love our photos and cannot wait to see our album! Shortly after the wedding we moved to Austin, TX and she has been wonderful working long distance.
For those of you looking for a wedding photographer in the Colorado Springs, Denver, or even the Austin area (Jaimie travels here for free!)—I highly recommend Jaimie Johnson. She is truly the best in the business and I would pick her every time.
