A family business that treats clients like family, too
Sweet Serendipity creates its namesake with its clients. From our enchanted engagement pictures in a local bookstore to our Shakespearean wedding across two venues, Jaime and Jenna were competent, creative, and calming presences. No question went unanswered. No idea was ever shut down or avoided. Jaime went out of her comfort zone with our first meeting, but the results were gorgeous because she put weeks' worth of effort into the editing process. The duo, complete with a bright and can-do attitude'd daughter, gave excellent directions so Max and I knew where to stand, how to pose, whom to face, etc. They made the family portraits a streamlined and quick process, when it could've easily taken hours. They were organized and protective of us when the staff at our venue was reneging on previously-promised flash photography allowance, and accommodated us with every little Pinterest-inspired look or posturing. I can't wait to see my first look pictures, and I would not have felt comfortable sharing such a personal moment with anyone else. We are so grateful that, despite family tragedy, Jaime and Jenna persevered and made our day so seamless and special. We will forever be grateful for their innovation, jokes, and guidance.Sent on 11/09/2019

I just received my wedding photos back and I am in love with them! Jamie captured the romantic, funny and drunken moments of my big day perfectly! I spent the night re living my wedding as me and my husband looked through our photos! From the beginning Jamie was fast at responding, even though I would mostly email her late at night! She was helpful and even let me change up one of her packages a little as I didn’t have an engagement shoot. The day of, she was earlier than expected. I didn’t have many bridesmaids, so she had the role of photographer ,a third opinion on my hair and jewelry ‘do-er up-er’. As well as lending me bobby pins when I ran out! Life saver! Jamie was calm and professional all day even when we had a slight venue hiccup! There was not a photo she didn’t take! Everyone of my photos is edited beautifully, capturing just how perfect the weather was outside and how sparkly the fairy lights were on the inside of my venue. I would hire Sweet Serendipity Photography again and hope to next time an important life event happens! 5 stars!Sent on 07/08/2019

As a make-up artist, I have known Jaime for many years now and have seen her work in-depth. I have also had the pleasure of working with her on a photo shoot. She has taken personal photos of my children that I am very happy with, even years later. Her work is impeccable and her level of professionalism is near the highest I have seen and worked with. She is very knowledgeable with what shots are going to look great and works with the client--be that a bride, model or children during shoots to make the client happy. I keep track of her work on her site and Facebook page and am always greatly impressed by her bridal work. She has won awards on The Knot magazine and rightly so, as she is widely known throughout North Central Florida and beyond for engagement, bridal and child photography. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great bridal photographer in the North Central Florida area or anywhere else!
Professional and SO thoughtful - the client always comes first! The Baughman Center is always so pleased when given the opportunity to work with Jaime from Sweet Serendipity!
I love working with Sweet Serendipity. They take beautiful wedding photos and are always so much fun to work with.
