I had the honor to interview my friend & fellow Canadian (shes in B.C) darling & sweet as pie, Jamie Delaine.
Jamie’s work is so exquisite that it appeals to every bride’s sense of romance, and yet so fresh & fun that Bride’s know they
will have fun with Jamie behind the camera. At only 19 years old, Jamie is quite the entrepreneur.
As taken from her website:
A girl in love with so many things. In love with living life, laughing until my stomach hurts, drinking green tea,
rainy Vancouver days, cardigan sweaters, learning to love people selflessly.
The little things make me smile & I don’t mean just any smile… the kind of smile that causes my cheeks to swallow my eyes.
Please read on & get to know more about my friend
Where is home? I live in Surrey, BC -- a suburb of Vancouver! If you could live anywhere on this awesome planet where would you build your dream home? Oooh, so much of what makes home "home" to me is community. Family, friends, my church body: because of that, I'm in love with Langley (a city close to Surrey) that houses most of these lovely things. I'm absolutely in LOVE with Langley and would definitely build my dream home out in the Langley country somewhere. How would you describe your style? I love anything quirky. My mom laughs at half of the things I wear out of the house on most days... I guess I just have a lot of self-confidence. Quirky, colour, laughter, joy. What is your favourite photography accessory, other than your camera? My Shootsac! http://www.shootsac.com If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why? It used to be my Canon 35mm f/1.4 L lens. But, lately, it's been on the brink and I've been without it for a few months while it's been repaired. I bought the Canon 24mm f/1.4L lens and I'm totally in love. That's my favourite. How important is Photoshop in your final images? Not that important. I do most of my processing in Lightroom and Photoshop is used only for slight toning actions and a touch of sharpening! Do you plan on buying any new equipment and if so what do you have your eyes on? Not at the current moment, I'm super happy with the line-up I have. A wedding photographer who inspires you? Punam Bean. A website and/or blog you visit often? Facebook. Way too often. Also, Bleubird Vintage. If you could give a starting photographer only ONE piece of advice, what would it be and why? Put so much personality onto your website, into your work and into your client meetings that people will either love you or hate you. Secret to getting clients you love. ;) Something you’re still learning? That I'm not invincible. So often, I try to do it all and all I do is end up falling flat on my face. ;) I need to learn to rely on other people than myself. What or who is the greatest love of your life? Jesus Christ. What is your greatest fear? I don't have any deep, paralyzing fears but: I hate the dark. I hate when people run up the stairs behind me. I have terrible nerves and if you come around a corner too fast, I'll scream. Something that is overrated? Fast food. Favourite food? I'm such a freak, but... I just love salads. Favourite sport? To watch? Hockey (playoff or olympics, only.) To play? All I do is run. HA! Website: http://www.jamiedelaine.com/#/jamie/ Blog: http://jamiedelaineblog.com/
