well hello there

DSC_5624 I’m Jamie Brinkman and I am a wife,  a mother to my three boys, and in my soul, I’m an artist, and I like to tell stories with my camera.

I have always loved taking photos from the moment I got my first camera. I studied photography in college, and after I graduated, I landed a job with Billabong, photographing surfers, which quickly transitioned me from a hobbyist to a professional. It wasn’t until a couple of  years later, when I got married myself, that I realized I had to be a wedding photographer. I love everything about wedding days. I love the challenge and the energy the day brings. Most of my clients become friends and I cherish the opportunity to photograph people’s lives as they unfold from their wedding day to growing into a family.

When it comes to my photography style, I am a hopeless romantic. It is my passion to create timeless, romantic images that last for a lifetime and can become tangible pieces of art in your home. Everybody has a story, and its my job to make sure I share it authentically. As a photographer, I use everything in my arsenal –  sometimes I get to be a photo journalist, sometimes a fashion photographer, sometimes a stylist, but I’m always a storyteller and I always shoot with love.

I use a variety of mediums including my professional Nikon bodies and my beloved vintage Pentax film camera. Though I specialize in engagement and wedding photography, I do offer other types of sessions. To find out more about specific services and pricing, please contact me through my contact page or send me an email at jamiebrinkman@icloud.com.
