Am I the right photographer for you?
I have never been fond of having my picture taken and was considering not having a wedding photographer at all! Jae reassured me that I would hardly notice that she was there and that on the day the pictures would be natural. Indeed, she was able to take some fantastic images, and capture just the right moments, and she was totally unintrusive.

Hi there, I'm Jae-Marie, and I want to cut through the bamboozling wedding jargon for you.
I’m a wedding stalker (that’s my subtle way of saying I’m a documentary - photojournalistic wedding photographer)
Here are some examples of what I do (and don’t do) to help explain:
I will sneak around like a ginger alley cat and get an excellent shot of Auntie Mable, bouncing around on a space hopper
I won’t take hours painstakingly posing you like a Barbie Doll.
I will hit the dance floor with your guests to ensure I capture the most action-packed party photographs.
I won’t boss everyone around during the group photographs like an uptight Sergeant Major.
I will chat and banter with your guests, so they feel relaxed around me.
Sure, I will do some posed group photographs for you because let’s face it, Grandma and Auntie Mable will probably want them, even if you don’t. But what I specialise in is creating photographs that make you;
…spray coffee out your nose laughing when you see a photo of dad dancing.
…Or tear up saying, “Oh wow that’s when mum took me to one side and told me how proud she was of me.”
…Or scream, “Oh brilliant, I can’t believe you captured that - I didn’t even know you were in the room.”
…Or gasp, "That’s awesome, I never would have remembered that! the day went so fast!'
....Or, wiping another tear saying 'My dad's face when he sees me in my dress for the first time'!
....Or lovingly laughing 'Seeing your groom biting his nails at the altar and shedding a tear, (which he said he wouldn't do) while he's waiting for you to make your appearance.
