Jameykay and Arlie were phenomenal. It doesn't hurt that I want to be best friends with them too.
Simply said: Jameykay and Arlie are easy to work with, tender in their approach, and collaborative partners.
We eloped in October at the top of Craggy Pinnacle. My (now) husband and I were coming from Atlanta and did not know Asheville or the surrounding areas. Jameykay and Arlie gave us incredible recommendations and support as we planned our wedding.
My husband isn't fond of getting his picture taken. Jameykay's humor and ability to become fast friends helped him to not only take pictures, but have fun while doing it.
Most importantly: We shared our wedding photos at our friends and family reception two months later, and every single guest raved about the photography. "These should be in a magazine." "Whatever you paid, it was worth it." And it was.

My husband and I searched wedding photographers for a few months before we got married. I ran across Jameykay and Arlie on Google by searching photographers in the Asheville area. Once I had seen their photos it was no question that THEY would be our photographers. They reply quickly by email and even worked out a personal payment plan with us so that we did not have to pay the full cost immediately. We drove from Tennessee to Craggy Gardens in North Carolina to get married. As soon as we met up with Jameykay and Arlie it was if we had been friends forever. We let them know that we're awkward in front of the camera and they told us that was no problem. They demonstrated every pose and caught a lot of candids that ended up being my favorite. They were kindly our witnesses as it was just my husband, minister and I. You truly could not ask for better, more personal people. Jameykay had a few preview photos done the day of, which was very nice and it did not take long to get the entire album. I would absolutely recommend these two. Their style is like nothing that is out there today. Thank you Jameykay and Arlie!

If ever there were a pair of photographers that blend artistry and professionalism into one seamless package, it is Jameykay and Arlie Huffman. The photographs are ethereal, striking, and unique to their artistic vision and obvious mastery of the craft of photography. They clearly communicated their vision and needs and listened intently as we expressed ours so on the wedding day, they were so well prepared they faded into the background as two industrious black blurs capturing all the special moments of the day. Not only was their communication with us outstanding, their long artistic, professional, and personal partnership gives them a unique ability to "divide and conquer." Each knows the other so well that they make two photographers seem like 20. The scope, variety, and thorough coverage of all the details, groups, portraits, candids, and special moments of our wedding is astounding. My wife and I are incredibly grateful to have this collection of several hundred images of ourselves, our loved ones, and the beautiful details of the day that we will treasure forever. On the most meaningful day of our lives, we trusted Jameykay and Arlie to capture the jubilant energy of our loved ones and they delivered. We could not be more pleased with our experience working with them or the product they created, and we give our most ardent recommendation to anyone looking for absolutely top-notch photography and professionalism to look no further than Jameykay and Arlie Photography.

I couldn't imagine any other photographers capturing my wedding day. Jameykay and Arlie are not only incredible photographers, but they are awesome people. They agreed to hike into a national forest to photograph my wedding along with my immediate family. They were on top of it the entire time and I love how easily they worked and even socialized with my family. We did our engagement photos with them and I knew I would love my wedding photos, once I saw the engagement shots. My wedding photos are so gorgeous and I am so happy that I followed my heart to choose Jameykay and Arlie. These two are just simply great and you know you can put your trust in them!

If you are considering Jameykay and Arlie, you've probably already seen their work, and know their photographs speak for themselves.
The ease of working with Jameykay and Arlie was a much welcome relief from the stress of planning a wedding. From our first initial meeting to our last correspondence, they were professional, down to earth, and committed to creating beautiful images for us.
During our engagement shoot, which I highly recommend, they immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. On our wedding day they captured not only the personalities of our guests and family, but also the essence of the day. Jameykay and Arlie are true artists. Each one has such a distinct eye, working harmoniously together. Their partnership is beautiful on its own.
We are grateful for their work, and that they are two badass people. ❤

I cannot thank you both enough for the incredible service you provide. Your ability to capture the true emotion of our wedding day allows us to relive the experience over and over again. You have a subtle approach that prevented us from even knowing when pictures were being taken. Thank you for providing us with memories that will last the rest of our lives, and for making our special day even more incredible. You are a dynamic duo that is ahead of your time, and you truly are masters of your craft!

Being artists ourselves, my husband Dave and I knew that choosing the right photographer was a very important aspect for us and that finding them would be a very daunting task. We wanted someone that felt right for the job in capturing not just our wedding day and the standard list of shots, but more so the history we shared together all these years. Searching many months, we had seen a lot of what was there to offer, but nothing really seemed to stand out until we stumbled across Jameykay and Arlie. Their work seemed to have an ethereal quality that captured a deep emotion and sophisticated style. We quickly realized that no one else could possibly do the job better than this duo.
Only days prior to the wedding, we had a casual one-on-one engagement shoot that showed not only their artistic talents and ability behind the lens, but how amazingly genuine and personable they are to work with. They were open to our questions and suggestions and even provided us some of their own recommendations that made the wedding day much less stressful. They were sincerely excited to explore ideas that would make our photos uniquely us. Dave and I instantly felt like we had hired two dear friends. For the big wedding day itself however, they were nothing short from professional. They managed their time very well while still grabbing a diverse range of photos, all split up between multiple cabins and sites upon the venue.
When we received our digital album, it completely surpassed our expectations. It took our breath away. My husband Dave and I now look forward to working with Jameykay and Arlie again and again for each of the milestones throughout our lives. Thank you Jameykay! Thank you Arlie! We are so whole-heartedly grateful for everything you’ve done for us.

I can't recommend Jameykay enough! As a photographer, it was incredibly significant for me to find someone to capture our wedding day that I could trust and that I knew had a good eye. Since we were basically eloping, it was even more important to have amazing photos to share when we returned. I searched through dozens of Asheville area wedding photographers before I found Jameykay and knew instantly that she was the one. I've never regretted that decision--Jameykay is a dedicated artist and a brilliant soul.
Throughout the entire process from planning to seeing our proofs for the first time, Jameykay she was honest, enthusiastic, friendly, professional, and truly excited to be a part of our wedding. Jameykay and (her then-boyfriend, now husband) Arlie were such a special part of our day that I'm truly grateful for. I can't imagine our wedding without them, and the beautiful images are all the more perfect because of that.
If we had another wedding where we live instead of Asheville, without a doubt I would hire her all over again and pay for her travel expenses. There is no one else I would have wanted besides Jameykay and Arlie there on our wedding day!
