Another Saturday, another wedding, another day doing what I love. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Excited to be photographing Sarah + Brandon's wedding day today with a fabulous vendor team!
Hey-o! It's me! Jamie! If you're new here, there's a few things you should know: I'm obsessed with Myers-Briggs personality theory. I LOVE colour + @essiepolish + puppers + green tea + my husband of nearly-4-years @randylswatson. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm a wedding photographer of 10+ years, founder of a YouTube channel for photographers, creator of 2 online photography courses--which basically means I'm juggling a gazillion roles throughout my workweeks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Recently, I hired on an AMAZING assistant @grace_cee who's making *much* of my behind-the-scenes YouTube + blog work happen. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I decided 2018 was my year for pursuing one big goal -- so I'm throwing my heart into making it happen! Now tell me about YOU--what do you do for work!?
Do you know about my YOUTUBE channel? 💕 Every week (every single week!) I share new videos on Wednesday, teaching photographers how to market their work well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This may be the week I reach 2000+ subscribers on the platform (yay!) -- would you join me over there?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click the link in my profile to catch up on all the videos! P.S. Today, I'm sharing a collaboration with @nadiameli you won't wanna miss! WHAT I WISH I KNEW When I Started My Photography Business! 😍
Mondays are for puppy throwback pics. 💕 🐶⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How CUTE is this little #thelabradoodleharley face?! 🐶 Can't get over how sweet he was (and is) -- so glad we added this little guy to our family the year we got married. (Fun fact: we got Harley on our 1 year engage-aversary!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dog people are MY people. I also prefer to call them doggos and puppers and we regularly call Harley by one of his 10+ nicknames. Where my dog people at? Share a dog emoji in the comments below! 🐶
I thought winter was over, but I wasn't about to complain about the 2 inches of snow on Valentine's Day morning. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Snow will never stop being magical for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Although, Canadians who live in other parts of the country tell me eventually, yes, snow would stop being magical when you have it around for months. Hahaha.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #jamiedelainephotography #vancouverphotographer #vancouverportraitphotographer #vancouverweddingphotographer #huffpostido #engagementphotos #vancouverengagementphotographer #engagementsession #bcweddingphotographer #realcouplesofBC #snowengagement #winterengagement #goldenhourlight
It's no secret, I love to read! 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Both of these books were 'off the shelf' reads at my library--I hadn't heard of the titles before I saw them, but the covers caught my eye! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Weekend Effect by @katrina.onstad was a thorough book into the history of the workweek & the weekend & how we've 'undone' much of our progress around the weekend in the last 40 years! It was fascinating & inspired me to continue on in my journey of work/life balance & using my time well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How to Be a Bawse is by Lilly Singh @iisuperwomanii, YouTube sensation. (But I had never heard of her!) I loved this comedic memoir/book of life lessons. She kept me laughing all the way through and I admired her #girlboss drive. 💕 Plus it's crazy colorful + you know I'm ALL about that colour. (And now that I've checked out her YouTube channel, you definitely should too!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've read a few more books since these... & I'm going to try my best to share lots of book reviews in 2018 here! 💕#jamiedelainereads
You make me better every day, @randylswatson. (Except for those late night trips to the grocery store, arms full of chocolate & multiple varieties of ice cream... Then, you just make me happier.) . Thanks for choosing me. . Happy Valentine's Day. 💕 . (I know, I know, Valentine's Day, hot button topic! But tell me - do you like it? Do you celebrate it? I have ALWAYS loved Valentine's Day, even when I was single. I love the colours, pops of red + pink + white everywhere! But I’ve recently been shocked by how many couples don’t celebrate. Give me the scoop!) 👋🏼 #jamiewithrandy
If your day needs a reset like mine did this morning, take it. Make a cup of coffee. Sit down somewhere quiet for even a few minutes. . Ignore what wasn’t working in your morning, resolve to wipe the slate clean & look forward to the afternoon ahead. #PepTalks (New Girl + my favourite mug just cured my morning troubleshooting blues.) 😂🙌🏼🎉
Loved spending a gloriously sunny Saturday with Amanda + Matt (and their two adorable kids!) at @fraser_river_lodge celebrating their long-awaited wedding day! 💕🎉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hair & Makeup Stylist: @rosequartzmakeup⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wedding Dress: @venusbridalofficial⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dress Store: @tiffanysvancouverbridal Groom's Attire: @verawanggang Suit Store: @mooresclothing Cake: @tracycakes_cafe Decor & Rentals: @valleyweddings
