Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamielyn Craft.
Jamielyn, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
My love for photography began as a little girl. I remember picking up a camera in the 4th grade and started photographing anything and everything. Every year after that, the only thing I would ask for Christmas or my birthday was a new camera. I even worked in a photography studio the moment I turned 16 and into college. Since then, my passion for photography just blossomed and I all wanted to do is photograph all things beautiful and meaningful, which is why I fell in love with weddings.
However, it wasn’t until I started planning my own wedding back in 2006-2007 did I really tap into wedding photography. I started working with another local wedding photographer and eventually a year and a half later in 2008 I started Jamielyn Craft Photography.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
As a wedding photographer, I am inspired to capture the emotional content and beauty in stunning details of one of life’s most timeless rituals while being able to tell a story of a couple’s wedding day as it unfolds. I love the natural light because I feel like it provides more a light and airy romantic feeling to my images.
Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
With the availability of online media, I think it gives the artist a larger platform to have your work recognized a lot easier. No matter what city you live in, there are also many avenues for other artists to be to get out there and network with other artist and local vendors. Join local groups and participate in styled shoots because not only do they create more opportunities to add additional content but also the ability to work with other amazing artists in the community.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Aside from my website and social media accounts, my work has been published on sandiegowedding.com, Glittery Bride and Zola. Furthermore, keep a look out on Whimsically Wed and Boho Weddings for two more of my weddings/styled shoots that will be published later this year.
