I'm Jamie Steetle, Owner/Photographer. 8 years ago, I picked up my first DSLR and discovered the never ending passion of photography. I have spent countless hours of practicing, studying and watching tutorials from some of my favorite photographers. I'm a super relaxed, easy-going person and my goal every session is to make my clients feel like they're just having a good time with a close friend. I love the natural, lifestyle look and use minimal props to keep the focus on the subject's interactions.View My Blog
I take pride in my response time to all inquiries and questions from the first email until your wedding day. I believe that great communication is the key to making a wedding day go as smoothly as possible.
I do not put limits on the amount of times you would like to meet and I make sure to provide all my clients with a wedding photography checklist to personalize and prioritize your wedding day shots.
All packages also include a complimentary engagement session so we can use that time to get to know each other and for you to feel comfortable with how I work behind the camera.
I typically arrive an hour before the ceremony (or earlier depending on bride's wants/needs) and I always check with the bride before leaving for the day. Start and end time varies depending on the package chosen.
I will have with me my main professional camera body, lenses, lighting equipment, batteries, and memory cards. I will also have back up equipment of all above things mentioned should the main equipment ever fail.
Venues can sometimes be very dark so as a photographer, I believe it is vital to have the appropriate lighting equipment to keep pictures bright, clear and sharp. I also believe it is important to communicate frequently with the Dj/Band/planner as to not interfere with any planned dances/activities and coordinate the timeline appropriately.
I also take pride in my turn around time for photo delivery. I have an estimate time of 4-6 weeks written in the contract, but I work hard to get your photos returned earlier if possible.
I know how exciting it can be to see wedding photos so I always get a sneak peak up within 1 day and a blog done within 1 week. Photos will be delivered and viewed through and online gallery system where they can be downloaded and saved in the method you prefer.
There are also options to purchase prints/canvases if you wish to do so, but all wedding packages include the digital images with print release. My communication doesn't stop or end after the wedding day. I will happily continue to answer any gallery/photo questions that you may have after they have been delivered.
My sessions are typically 1-2 hours long at your location of choice. I have a farm I use in Parkwood with open fields and large barns but I am always open to new ideas and places. I'm easy to communicate with and try to be as flexible as I can with schedules and times making sure to plan accordingly to each individual family.
To obtain the golden colors and sunsets, I like to plan sessions an hour before sunset, but I am not limited to that time if you prefer something earlier due to personal routines/schedules.
Return time can take up to two weeks but I take pride in my response time and work hard to get them back as soon as possible. Images are delivered and viewed through an online gallery where you can download and order prints/canvas's if you wish to. All sessions include 15 digital images at minimum with print release.
