I'm a wedding and portrait photographer living in Vancouver, BC with my husband Randy. I photographed my first wedding when I was only 17 years old - and I've photographed over 200 weddings since! I am an avid bookworm, lover of green tea, pretty nail polish & my Labradoodle Harley. Thanks for visiting!

Our Love Story
This wedding is so special to me for a few reasons! Reason #1) Maria has been a long-time blog reader of mine… something ridiculous like for six years. When she emailed me to share she was engaged and ready to book me for her wedding on her ‘home island’ of Gabriola Island, BC, I was thrilled. (That’s Reason #2, I love destination weddings in B.C… like these weddings in Tofino, Penticton and Kelowna.) A few months ago, in December, I met Maria and her fiance Tim for the first time at Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver for their engagement session. Reason #3) They are an amazing couple and I had so much fun with them and it made me even more excited for their wedding day!
I was dating.
I was dating a man named Randy. He was amazing and I was his girlfriend.
Friends could “officially” be told about us as a couple and finally, finally, we were settling into a rhythm. For the time being, our conversation in Bellingham seemed to be the “final hurdle” I needed to jump over before my heart could rest. Randy and I enjoyed seeing each other almost every day – texting throughout our work days, hanging out at my parents home (where I lived) in the evenings or going out for dinner and walks alone.
Hi friends! I have a few new announcements around these parts!
I’m so excited to share that I’ve finally separated my photography/personal blogging + my social media/small business blogging. In addition to my photography business (that I’ve been running for nearly 9 years now!) I’ve also started developing social media courses for small business owners. I’ve decided to keep this home, jamiedelaineblog.com, as my photography blog as well as a space for my personal writing. However, I have a new domain, jamiedelainewatson.com (my married name as of 2 years ago!) for my social media teaching.
I am so excited to be sharing Lainee and Michael’s wedding day with you today for many reasons! Let’s start at the beginning… I met Lainee when her mom started working for one of my mom’s businesses (which she has since sold) about twelve years ago! We were both thirteen or fourteen and quickly connected over many of our similarities. Lainee has the sweetest heart and I have so many good memories of our times together around early high school. For a season, we even attended the same school and had the same classes!
