Welcome to the blog space for Jaime Lauren Photography, an enterprise primarily serving the West Coast of Canada & the US, but completely mobile so as to serve my clients' needs anywhere, enabling me to be available for services worldwide.

If you're looking for a photographer who is dedicated to capturing images from your life with both a keen eye for detail and a knack for making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, I'm your girl! Whether I'm discreetly documenting an intimate moment during a wedding ceremony or passionately throwing myself into the mix on the dance floor at the reception, I will do whatever it takes to produce beautiful images that document your day as it unfolds. I believe that the best photographs come as a result of the relationships formed between the photographer and the subject, which for me means blending professionalism with personal warmth.

My passion for building relationships and telling stories has opened the doors to some fabulous adventures and amazing relationships over the years. From Morocco to Mississippi, Spain to Siberia and back, the people and places I've encountered have offered me many beautiful experiences, and weddings abroad or within another culture hold a special appeal for me. In fact, it was while photographing a wedding in Mississippi several years ago that I met my husband who happened to be playing the bagpipes for the occasion! We were married this past year and are now currently residing in the San Francisco Bay area which we love! Originally from British Columbia, I take every opportunity to travel back and visit friends and family as well as maintain a business presence in the region.

My desire to create beautiful images that tell stories and bring out the best in my subjects has been influenced by my lifelong love of photojournalism and fashion photography. Due to my studies at Emily Carr University of Art & Design, references to historic artists and early photographic practices has crept into some of my recent exploratory work which I hope to begin integrating into my wedding & portrait design this year. To stay on top of my most recent work and the latest news from Jaime Lauren Photography, feel free to follow my blog. Your comments, ideas, and questions are always welcome, so don't hesitate to drop me a line!

Can't wait to hear from you!
