I didn't want to have a photographer at our wedding in Flagstaff—it was very small and I was worried it would feel intrusive or distracting. I caved due to pressure from my mom and I'm so glad I did! I actually didn't even notice she was there for most of the ceremony/reception! Jayde was wonderful. She and her sister were really friendly and easy-going; they made me feel comfortable right away and having them there was not awkward at all. The whole process was painless and the photos looked gorgeous!
Jayde was so exceptional to work with from the very start. We had a very small intimate wedding of 15 people, along with a special needs type of wedding request from me which she so kindly and professionally worked around and created the most beautiful day full of pictures ever. "Special needs request to a photographer" included asking her to not take any pictures of me face on... (wow now that is tough for a photographer!)- because of a nerve issue I experienced a long time ago that affected my smile and eyes dramatically. She did exceptional capturing us in such a beautiful way that when I look at our pictures form this day forward I see us, I see our special day and nothing else. There are pictures of every single moment from the day that I don't even remember happening! I literally can relive my entire day through her lens. I am so thankful to have found her, so thankful we purchased all of the digital images because I continue to look at them every single day.
Jayde is a class act - warm and friendly, but professional! She was very responsive in the time leading up to my elopement, and made the experience really fun on the day-of! As a bride visiting Sedona for the first time, I'm so glad she helped us with the outdoor location details. My husband and I are pretty awkward with photos of ourselves in general, but Jayde put us at ease immediately. I had something of a makeup emergency prior to the session, but literally nobody who I've shared the photos with picked up on that, lol! We got a few sneak peaks almost immediately, and the full set of photos was delivered within the estimated time frame. The photos themselves are a delight, and captured so much emotion. The treatment of light and color is just *gorgeous*: the photos are atmospheric, romantic, and warm, but still true to life. The photos Jayde created to document my wedding day have a classic authenticity that I know my family will enjoy forever.
As a woman who was having trouble accepting my changing body, I was having a hard time envisioning myself in a maternity shoot. Not only did Jayde have the perfect dress for me, but she was able to capture a side of me that I hadn’t seen before. I am beyond amazed by our session and the images that she was able to produce. I cannot recommend her enough!
I found Jayde on google, and could not have dreamed how amazing my pictures would be! I am from out of town, and wanted to do a gender reveal/maternity shoot. She arranged everything with me via email/text. She also provided a dress for the maternity shoot, that turned out amazing. Our pictures were absolutely stunning.
