My name is Jamie Alexander, and I am the owner of JAA Studios. I was born and raised on horse farms in Lexington, Kentucky (which is why we shoot most of our weddings there - family time!). I moved to Owensboro, Kentucky for college and stuck around after meeting my love (and your second-shooter at weddings), Ian. I recently opened a Boudoir & Beauty Portraiture studio in downtown Owensboro, Kentucky. While JAA Studios specialized first and foremost in Weddings and Beauty Portraiture, we also offer Maternity, Pet, Business (lifestyle/branding/headshots), and Culinary/Product Photography (our culinary photography has been featured in national blogs and local magazines)
I discovered my love for weddings the day I delivered my very first gallery to the bride & groom. I was already grateful that they trusted me enough to capture their day, but their reaction when they saw the photos made me realize that weddings were something I definitely wanted to continue. I recently came to the decision to only take on 12 weddings a year so that I can show each couple the attention they deserve. I take great pride in walking my couples through everything they'll need to know to have a wonderful, stress-free day. While I run the other areas of the studio solo, Ian is the second-shooter/assistant/professional "dress floofer" at weddings. We make a great team and love doing everything we can to make your day a gorgeous, classic day to remember. To read more about weddings, check out our "About Weddings" page!
Beauty Portraiture was always the obvious choice for me to pursue. Growing up with self-esteem issues (like many women do), I can confidently say that nothing brings me more happiness than helping somebody feel beautiful and confident. I think EVERY woman should have a gorgeous photo of herself. I am so happy to have a studio in downtown Owensboro where I can pamper women and give them such a rewarding, empowering experience.
