My name is Jaimie Skriba and I’m a fine art wedding and portrait photographer currently residing in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As a result of my experience and upbringing (the love child of two wedded small town touring rock n’ roll musicians!), I have a natural eye for composition and absolutely love to capture life moments in an authentic way.
When it comes to weddings, I love nature and being outdoors! I prefer to shoot from an editorial and documentary perspective and aim to create images using natural light, that are classic, yet exploratory of those small things that make each couple individual.
My favorite weddings are in Northern Michigan, on The Great Lakes, and in Chicago; but I’ve always been down for travel when the right wedding crosses my path! In my free time, I’ve forever been a serious francophile and have spent time photographing portraits and landscapes in Europe, France, and all across the United States! Following the time I’ve spent traveling, however; photographing in the Midwest has always inspired me the most, and will FOREVER steal my heart!
As far as my portrait collections, I have a strong interest in capturing the female experience and specialize in classic and non-traditional portraiture. My passion lies in working together with my clients to capture a natural expression that is timeless.
When I’m not taking portraits of clients; you can find me shooting film, hanging with my rescue greyhound, volunteering for Slow Food and Girls Rock, traveling, and loving all things French...I’ve spent a few years after college exploring Paris, teaching English in Cannes, and volunteering on an organic farm community in the Vosges region.
Thanks for stopping by! XX
I’m currently available for new projects, weddings, commissions, & collaborations.
