About Jamie

My name is Jamie Brinkman and I am first and foremost a wife and a mother to my 3 wonderful, rambunctious boys. Secondly, I am a full-time wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Orange County, CA. I love spending my time outdoors whether its playing with my boys, surfing, or searching for the perfect light to photograph. Photography has been a passion of mine for my entire life and I honestly I can't even remember the first time I picked up a camera. My passion grew into a career when I was asked to photograph a surf trip for Billabong. From that time on, my love for photography blossomed and I found my niche shooting weddings and lifestyle photography. Photographing people in their most happy moments is what makes my heart happy.
