director of advertising and vendor relations


I am Jamee, owner of Jamee Photography. I have been photographing Colorado weddings since 2002 and continue to pursue my passion of capturing couples and families. I have advertised with Couture Colorado since it first began 8 years ago. Laura and I recently have joined together, after connecting on the chair lift and skiing together one amazing day last year, we share the same vision to grow Couture Colorado. Our goal is to not only create a beautifully designed publication but also to create a community among local vendors. I hope to meet you and hear about why you love being apart of the Colorado wedding community.
