The Underwood Family

She was extremely personable and easy to work with. She did an amazing job guiding us and made sure everyone was comfortable. She took suggestions from us and shared ideas on what would make the perfect shot. She captured all of us laughing and being silly. She followed through on everything she said she would do. Would highly recommend Desert Paintbrush Photography to family and friends.

Jaymie was absolutely wonderful with my crazy family during our photo session outside in the snow.

Jaymie is a Mammoth Lakes & Zion Photographer. She specializes in documenting small weddings & elopements.
