jaymecharissaphotography bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog! I'm Jayme! I've always been an artist at heart. Five years ago I started capturing the precious moments and memories in my little one's lives- firsts, who they are, and what makes them beautiful. They are my inspiration behind by passion for photography. Photography is my art. I see beauty in the bonds, expressions, details, and love people share. I seek to capture those moments in every picture I take, moments that will last a lifetime. I am a custom modern photographer in Albuquerque, NM. I shoot on location using natural light. I LOVE comments and please contact me with any questions! (Photo taken by Brianna Saban)

Devon + Zach {Albuquerque Wedding Photographer}

This picture reminds me of when JFK Jr was marriedMy favorite…their second kiss as husband and wife. You can see the happiness!

When Devon asked me to shoot her wedding I was humbled and honored.  Then I met her in person, we had an instant connection.  I felt like I had known her my whole life.  She’s adorable, beautiful, and full of style.  At their engagement shoot, I was able see her and Zach together.  Their love, laughter and inability to keep their hands off each other was amazing to watch.

Eight years ago to the DAY of their wedding these two went on their first date.  I loved all the little things Devon did to make the day special.  She gave her mother, father, and mother-in-law embroidered handkerchiefs.  The one to her mother in law read, “Thank you for raising your son to me the man of my dreams.  Love, Devon”.

May 5, 2012 was also a “super moon”.  The moon would be the biggest, brightest, and closest to earth of the year.

Devon and Zach, thank you for the opportunity to capture one of the most special days of your lives.  You two are so fortunate to have such wonderful loving friends and family.

You are blessed to have found each other.  I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Debbie ParadisMay 12, 2012 - 1:18 am

Awesome Jayme. I would say this is your best work to date and it was your first wedding! How cool that my friend and neighbor did the photography for my friends and cousins!

Devon ThompsonMay 12, 2012 - 4:31 am

These are the most beautiful wedding pictures I’ve ever seen. You have a gift Jayme. The bride is over the top GORGEOUS!

JBMay 12, 2012 - 5:22 am

The light, color, composition is perfect! I love the balance you found of capturing moments and candor with poise and portraiture. AMAZING job!

sarahMay 13, 2012 - 5:07 pm

So gorgeous. I love the family shots and the sweet tender ones of bride and groom!! Devon’s smile is radiant and the photos really show how happy, excited and in love she is. Always impressed, sarah

TamaraMay 14, 2012 - 3:25 am

Jayme, you really captured the connection and sweet love of this couple. It looks like New York High Fashion Photography. I loved every moment you shot. I looked through them twice and then Charles and I looked through them together. So beautiful, I see your passion and fingerprint on each print.

Michelle CoryJune 9, 2012 - 3:12 am

These photo’s are truley magnificent. My fav is also the one of her back, holding the curtains open. Although the others show her alluring beauty, and classic slyle. I’ve known Devon since she was a little girl,and I always knew she would grow up not only stunning in appearance, but in her demeaner. She should model for you. your photography is exceptional. some of the best ‘ve ever seen.

each other and then some {Albuquerque Engagement Photographer}

These two have it all…love, laughter, and friendship. They were just sweet with each other. This what I LOVE about photography- the ability to capture the emotion, adoration, and beauty of who they are together…and they are GORGEOUS!

They were fun and fearless too! We went through cactus, weeds, ditches. I sat on a cactus…(I know good work Jayme). I’m still pulling needles out, but it was worth it!

Congratulations! Cherish every floating in the cloud, I’m marrying the person of my dreams moment. May the lead up to the wedding and beyond be filled with lots of joy and happiness!!!

omgosh!!! i LOVE how you put the ring on the cactus!!!! these are precious. they are going to treasure these forever and ever. i think the first one is my faaaaaaave!

SarahApril 10, 2012 - 7:46 pm

Yes, you are the best! And these two are gorgeous!
I also loved the cactus & rings. Very cool!

madly in ♥ and smokin hot {Albuquerque Engagement Photographer}

These two are the real deal. They light up just looking at each other. It was beautiful to watch. Capturing their love was effortless and natural. As GORGEOUS as they are on the outside…(seriously it’s as if I picked to models), they are even more beautiful in person. I have the honor of shooting their wedding in May…CAN’T WAIT!

I’m sure she’ll be embarrassed I mentioned this…But besides being a knock out, Devon is also an accomplished business owner. She owns Broadway Skin & Body Retreat, rated one of the City’s Best Spas.  I’ve had a facial and it was AWESOME!

As I was editing the pictures, I thought why don’t more couples get pictures of just them?  It goes engagement (maybe), the wedding, then random blurry snapshots.  What about 5, 10, 20 year anniversary pictures?  Or just in love whatever year pictures?

May you always find friendship and solace in each other.  May you always find love and happiness in each other’s arms!  CONGRATULATIONS on a beautiful life together!

These are gorgeous, I love all the kiss shots, especially the “almost kiss” in front of the red door. That one is SeXy! I’m glad you got some romantic shots of her beautiful hair.
Gorgeous Jayme!!

Hi Jayme!
Thank you so much for these AMAZING engagement pics and for being there to capture my wedding day. You are such a loving, wonderful person and I am so blessed to have found you! I can’t wait to see the photos from the wedding day! I know they will be magical!

all boy {Albuquerque Children’s Photographer}

God loves little boys and all that they do
Exploring and laughing and roughhousing, too.

God loves their energy, eagerness and wit.
He loves their serious side and their fanciful spirit.

He guides them and tends them while they grow,
Giving them all of the grace he can bestow.

God’s plan for his boys is wondrous as well,
Because soon in their place little men will dwell.

Hudson you are dream come true! I love you!

I love how much fun he is having!! what a great and colorful, fun room!!

happy spring “w” family! {Albuquerque Family Photographer}

From the first email Momma sent me I knew I was going to be a big fan. I LOVED this family! Momma just has a glow about her…the most incredible blue eyes, perfect hair, and a smile for days. It was inspiring to watch Daddy with his baby girl. This little girl could not have more loving, adoring, or playful parents. She was 9 months of pure sweetness, wonderment, and energy. It was awesome to see and capture the love they share. I hope these pictures always remind you of this precious moment in your life. You all are beautiful and blessed!

Lindsay WalkerMarch 25, 2012 - 1:51 pm

Jayme–THANK YOU! You are a gifted photographer and we are so happy to have watched in you action–we could see the artists eye take over in many poses we would not have thought of doing~you are great!
