Hello! I’m Jamie Delaine Watson and I’m joining #fridayintroductions! I’m a photographer + educator from Vancouver, BC. Since 2007, I’ve photographed 200+ weddings + been running my business full-time for 10 years! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m 27 years old, been married to my husband Randy for almost 4 years + we have a sweet pup: #thelabradoodleharley. I love green tea, reading, painting my nails, barre fitness & organizing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I spend my workweeks running @jamiedelainephoto — my wedding photography business as well as JamieDelaineWatson.com, creating educational resources for photographers, running a weekly YouTube channel and creating online courses! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I really love my work. I love working for myself. I love the challenge of entrepreneurship, “Wake up tomorrow + figure out how to make money!” I’m an INTJ, which means I love to create systems, work autonomously + need a quiet space to concentrate. Thanks for following along!! 💕❄️
PHOTOGS: Do you use PhotoMechanic to cull your images? 💕 Do you feel like you're using it *well?* If you've been confused about #PhotoMechanic, or wondered WHY photogs talk about it so much, consider this your FREE ticket to my 3-part training videos! 🙌🏼 They go live on January 17, and if you don't sign up before then, you won't have free access to 'em! 😫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click the link in my profile to register! 👍🏼 So pumped to share. P.S. I'm a liiiiitle jealous of the snow in the forecast so close by... but none predicted where I am in Langley! ⛄️ P.P.S. Snowy engagement sessions wiiiiiin!!
Anybody else stuck somewhere in between I miss all the twinkly links and pops of red + green all over the city! 🎄 and When will it be warm enough for me to wear my Birkenstocks? ☀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe it's just me. ALSO today I spent TWO HOURS organizing my company Dropbox files and... I gotta say, I'm a new woman. 💁🏼♀️ Also I watched 2 hours of New Girl on Netflix while doing so. 🙌🏼 It's a pretty good Wednesday.
Booking weddings lately has me so thrilled about the 2018 summer season ahead! 🎉💕 Can't wait to do this all over again! It really is fun have such distinct seasons to this business.
Happy Monday! If you've never heard of @laracasey, first of all, follow her. Second, you're going to love following her. Dove into the #2018GoalSetting series on her blog and purchased the Powersheets shortly after Christmas. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She leads you through an amazing 'goal uncovering' process - helping you to see what truly MATTERS to you. What makes you excited? What do you want more of in your year? Why are you setting the goals you're setting? I've spent quite a few hours thinking/journalling and although I have a bit more to do, I'm excited about how these #powersheets2018 will guide my year. ❄️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. Also, who loves my New Year's Eve nails? (This is a picture from last week.) Nail polish is definitely something that 'fires me up!' Hahaha.
2017 was an amazing year in my business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still makes me shake my head how the girl learning her camera in between high school classes at 16, went on to shoot her first wedding at 17… and that girl is me! ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ten years later, I’m still going, and it’s crazy to me. Who picks their career at seventeen? I didn’t set out to do this, honestly – I stumbled upon a job I love, a challenge, and I kept with it each year as I continued to enjoy it. 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m so glad I did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Enjoy this look back through my 2017 wedding season! Link in profile -- head to the blog to see ALL my favourites. 🎉👀
I love new beginnings and 'fresh starts!' As wedding photographers, most of us have January as our wedding off-season making it the perfect time to dig deep into inspiration, set actionable goals and get excited about the upcoming year and wedding season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wondering the BEST way to start 2018 strong as a photographer? NEW BLOG POST today! Read a round-up of wisdom from @katelynjames @justinmarantz @marymarantz @carolineloganphoto @ginazeidler @joyymichelle @callielindsey @post_partner @amy_demos @jordan_demos - LINK IN PROFILE! 💕👌🏼 Enjoy!!
Anybody else wake up this morning like, Oh hello 7am, no thanks?! Christmas holidays are basically a different time zone. ❤️ Happy New Year, everyone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our tree is put away, the decorations are gone, but Christmas is still living in my heart - so I wanted to share a photo of our living room. Be nice to yourselves today... start with the first step. 🙌🏼 Go from there.
Oh, let's join the fun - my #bestnine2017. 💕🎉 So much to love this year! Little explanation for this nine photos: 1) My 200th wedding photographed in September, 2) My husband recovered from Steven Johnsons Syndrome and discharged from a hospital in Germany. 3) On safari in Uganda. 4) Randy's 29th birthday dinner. 5) A wedding photo, posted on our anniversary in March. 6) One of my fave weddings of this year. 7) A post about 'contentment' + my doggo's rain jacket. 8) Window selfie in a hotel room in Germany after a red eye flight. Apart from my husband for 16 days, flew there to find him critically ill in a hospital - where I didn’t speak the language. Woooo, we had fun. Hahaha. 9) One of my favourite pics of us at my cousin's wedding this summer. 💞
