Bio

I am a Dayton-based portrait and wedding photographer. I started my business in 2009. I love capturing special moments among couples and family.

About J Renee Creations

hired 3 times on Thumbtack

Greetings!

My name is Jamie, and I have owned my own small photography business since January 2009! I specialize in portraits, weddings, and events. I am based in Dayton, Ohio and do travel to surrounding areas.

I believe I am unique because I offer a client experience in order to make people feel valued and special, and work hard to create and document moments and emotions. Traditional studios are boring; you want to remember moments how they really are!

    Jamie was wonderful. We took pictures with our daughter who needed coaxing at times and Jamie was patient, and helped us get smiles from our daughter. She was also very professional and prompt! She took great pictures and got us out photos very fast. I highly recommend her!

    Jamie is awesome!!! She's professional but also very personable. She wants your artistic input and allows you to go with whatever your thinking in addition to her professional input. I also appreciated the simplicity of the scheduling and photo shoot.

    Jamie is the absolute BEST! The quality and creativity speaks for itself! She's always been very accommodating and her shoots are SOOO much fun! She's my family's go to for great pictures.

    Really great experience and she's really reasonable. She was willing to travel and try new things and she will work with you even if you're a broke college student like me!

    We did a family photo shoot outside in winter. The weather did not cooperate but you'd never know it from the photos. Jamie was creative and professional and made some wonderful memories for our family. Every time I post them somewhere I always get positive comments. Highly recommend Jamie.

    Very easy to work with and had an excellent eye for detail behind the lense. Really took the time to make our shoot beautiful knowing how important it really was. Was not afraid to put the time and effort in our shoot.

    Jamie took our engagement photos and is booked for our wedding as well. She is great to work with, positive attitude, took her time with us and made sure she captured our love. Definitely recommend Jamie for any photography needs you may have. Check out her work. AMAZING!

    I left the photo shoot in her hands and I loved all the poses and pictures. Would recommend to anyone.

    My family and I have had many photoshoots with Jamie and we can say that she has always strived to do a phenomenal job when capturing our special moments. Great prices, specials, and a wonderful personality to work with!

    Love Jamie! She photographed my toddler, my dog and myself. What cute and creative photos! They were perfect, I couldn't have asked for more. Very reasonably priced too. She was very patient with my kids and incredibly easy to get along with. I would recommend her to anyone!

    Jamie was friendly and very creative! I felt comfortable with her and would use he services again. I was just looking at pictures she'd taken 3 years ago of my new born son. Awesome job!!!

    Let me first say that I am so pleased with my pictures from my engagement shoot! Jamie is very accommodating and open-minded. She also gives good suggestions when you're not sure what you want to do. We were in art school together so I know she has the skills and talents to see what self-taught photographers might not always understand. When we got the photos back, I was like YES YES YES (her understanding of composition and elements are apparent)! On top of that, she is a very determined and works to get you exactly what you want!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Meet with your wedding photographer in person. Things can look great on paper, and you can seem to click via email, but you won't get a true sense of who they are as a photographer until you meet them in person.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. One thing I want all my customers to know, is that price isn't everything. I know it is nature to seek out a 'bargain,' but these are your memories! Photographs are one thing that will last a lifetime, and can be passed on and on. Your Coach purse will fall apart, that steak dinner will be long gone, but your photographs and the memories you made taking them will last forever.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. It is definitely important to look at examples and find out your photographer's style, just to make sure you are both on the same page.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I really focus on the client experience. Portraits should be fun and special!

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love capturing the moment. Smiles, laughs, and even the tantrums of the terrible twos! Every special moment in life is worth remembering :)

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Most common question, other than price, is 'how many photographs do you take?'

I think as customers, we want to feel like we are getting a LOT for our money, which is definitely understandable. However, quality is definitely better than quantity, in my book. I would rather have one or two stunning photographs of my child, than 50 blurry, goofy-faced, unspectacular photographs.

So, the answer is, I take as many as are needed :) I don't promise a set amount, because if Susie isn't cooperative, we'll have a lot less to choose from! But the ones we do have to choose from, will be my very best.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Making great photographs is more than just a point and click. It takes time, experience, and did I say time?
