Hey Ya, I'm Jayme Peters; the face to Storyteller Collective and I began this company many moons ago with a solid purpose - to make people feel something. My heart is with documenting those living their best life, doing the things they love. My main focus is on small weddings and elopements; don't get me wrong, big ones are great. They just don't vibe with me like intimate events do. So I choose to shoot where I fit best, I'm also a huge supporter of Boudoir Empowerment, there's nothing like loving yourself.

Small weddings + Elopements and Boudoir Photography that scream non-traditional

The biggest thing that you should know is, I am here to empower you and make your photos a true representation of who you really are. Like the song by Nirvana goes, "come as you are, as you're meant to be". I like to do things a bit differently, so I am highly involved in the process leading up to the actual photographing, because I always want to make sure that your photos are true, raw, and real. If this sounds like your vibe, I'm willing to bet I could be the perfect photographer for you. This is also a judgement-free zone, I think it is really important to be inclusive, and everyone is beautiful in all ways. I am LGBTQ+IA & BIPOC friendly, my job is to create an inviting environment no matter what. I've photographed people from all walks of life, orientations, and skins tones. Photography is an art form, and I believe that everyone deserves their own unique experience of being in front of the camera.

Rooted in timeless images, raw and authentic emotion, and a seriously good time.

Did a fantastic job of capturing our intimate wedding ceremony! She is incredibly kind and made us and our guests feel very comfortable as she was snapping away our most precious moments. We received a sneak peek of the photos quickly and the entire edited collection much earlier than expected. We highly recommend hiring Jayme if you want someone very skilled behind the camera to capture your special moments!

She is incredibly kind.

If I could give 10 stars, I would. Do it! You will not regret this entire experience. Jayme calmed my nerves when I said I was nervous for the boudoir shoot and explained everything in great detail. She made the shoot comfortable and fun, slowly starting off interested in talking with me to make me feel special. The session itself was so easy, I didn't even feel like I was at a photo shoot. I'd do it all over again with how it helped my self confidence.

to make me feel special.

She was super flexible when we had to change our plans to an elopement and went above and beyond to make our day still special even with all the stress surrounding planning a wedding during covid-19! She was easy to work with and did a wonderful job!

was super flexible.
