Hello, I'm Jaime Van Kley! A photographer based out of small town Sioux Center, IA. I'm married to my amazing husband of 15years with whom I can't imagine shooting weddings without! Not only just for his ability to carry all my equipment and make sure I have adequate coffee/snacks, but his increasing knowledge of our gear and ability to use it has made him become quite the talented second shooter. With four young boys and increasingly busy schedules, we joke that wedding days are our date days (too bad we're serious ;)! In all honesty, I love the time together and doing something I'm passionate about! We love living in a small, family-friend community, but also enjoy adventure and travel when we can fit it in! Camping with our boys (and two dogs) has become quite the obsession as of late, so any chance to travel for work and play, we're in!

I specialize in wedding, senior lifestyle, & portrait photography. I love meeting and working with new clients, and have so much fun doing so. It is my goal to make every shoot comfortable & joyful as possible, creating an environment where you can be yourself & letting your personality shine through in your photos!

If you are considering JVK, LLC for your shoot, you might want to know a little bit about the person behind the camera! I am a wife & mama to four, amazing, energetic boys. Wanna be gardener. Coffee lover (borderline snob). An outdoor & exercise lover. I originally received degrees in business administration and also RN/BSN. I am creative & very competitive. I may live in my husband's sweats, but I promise if you book me for your wedding I like to dress like a guest. Not only to blend in with looks but I want to make you feel like I'm family or a close friend there to support and encourage you.
