This is my first marriage, but I've been a bridesmaid for many weddings. I've been up close and personal with several photographers all around Florida. Jaime Swanson at Sweet Serendipity was by far the best choice I could have made for my own wedding. She was prepared,... Read More professional, sweet and easy to be around. My images are absolutely stunning. Pictures of me and my husband that I will treasure forever - not only because of the memories, but because she made me feel beautiful beyond my wildest expectations.

Jaime is amazing! We decided to go with a local photographer who would travel ~2 hrs to our destination wedding as they made us the most comfortable. While Jaime wasn't the cheapest photography option, she was WELL worth the money! We got an engagement session and the rights to... Read More our final photos included in our package which was important to us. During our initial meeting, she took the time to get to know us and even linked up to my pinterest page to understand our photography style and inspiration. She was always responsive to emails with questions and was so easy to work with. She made us so comfortable during our engagement session that I booked a boudoir session as a wedding present for the hubby! She made what could be an awkward situation feel very comfortable both in our engagement and my boudoir session. She was fun and easy-going and creates a great rapport. She gives you pose ideas and allows you to be as natural as possible so your photos don't look awkward or forced. On the day of, Jaime and her sister got a flat tire on their way to our venue. They were in touch with us and were only a few minutes late. When they arrived they quickly set up and were ready to go without any hesitation. They made my bridal party feel comfortable with our getting ready photos and were never "in the way" with all the chaos. They are great at understanding what will and won't look good in photos and creating an atmosphere to enhance the final product. We didn't even notice them during the ceremony and reception but they captured all our special moments and the final photos are fantastic! We would recommend Sweet Serendipity to anyone looking to have photography done!

I cannot say enough great things about choosing Sweet Serendipity Photography to capture our big day! Our wedding was in St. Augustine, so a little travel involved. Jaime and Jenna were there to capture everything from me and my bridal party getting ready, the venue, my husband...

You cannot make a better choice for such a special investment than Sweet Serendipity Photography!

Where do I begin? I am a Bridal Consultant/planner, and I have 6 kids and 1 grandchild.
