I’m a Destin, Florida photographer capturing family vacations and the area’s best restaurants and businesses.
My husband’s Air Force assignment brought us to Destin in 2017 and now we never want to leave! We have two kids (a boy named Logan and girl named Kylie) plus the sweetest lab mix rescue pup! Outside of photography, I love baking, traveling, reading, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my family and friends.
The Girl Behind the Camera
Portrait and brand photographer
I’m a Destin photographer who loves working with local restaurants and businesses to give them a library of high-quality, on-brand imagery to be used for marketing.
I also spend a lot of my time with vacationing families who are looking to capture some of their sweetest moments at the beach.
And don’t just think of me as a photographer. I want to be a resource for your next Destin, Florida vacation! Need a dinner recommendation? I know just the place. Want to catch the sunset with ice cream? Let me tell you about my secret spot. Not sure what to wear for our session? I’ll send you some ideas that will help you choose the perfect outfit.
How I Discovered my Passion for Photography
I’ve been taking photos since I was a kid with a disposable camera in the ’90s, but it took a while for me to realize photography would be the perfect career. I got serious about it when I started a lifestyle blog in 2012 because I wanted to create “Pinterest-worthy” images of outfits, recipes and travel content. I learned how to shoot in manual to get that beautiful blurry background and light, airy look I saw all over Instagram. After years of pursuing that avenue, I decided to use my skills to help other people and businesses. This is when Jamie Kamber Photography was born!
Now I spend my time shooting Destin locals and vacationers by our beautiful beaches. Capturing those fleeting moments gives me so much joy. And as much as I love getting to know all of these wonderful families (and making some lifelong friends!), food photography will always have a special place in my heart. I am passionate about capturing menu items and the overall atmosphere of restaurants. This is why you’ll find a lot of food content on my blog! I’ll guide you to the best local eateries in Destin and help you avoid tourist traps.
Capturing Candid, Natural Moments
My goal is to capture genuine moments and smiles, which is why I use action prompts and let kids play and have fun during our sessions.
Genuine Connections with Clients
Part of getting amazing photos is getting to know you and your family! I love connecting on social media and staying in touch before and after your session.
Careful and Detailed Editing
I have a light, airy editing style and try to keep the beach and skin tones as true to color as possible. Plus I’ll edit out any beachgoers or pesky seagulls.

But Enough About me!
I want to Hear your Story
One thing I find so special about my job is that I get to meet a lot of amazing people! Whether you’re a longtime local, first-time vacationer, small business owner, or something in between, I would love to get to know you and learn about how I can serve you!
This in-home shoot was so special As a mom myself, I am very passionate about capturing little ones (and their parents!) 💛 Her beautiful nursery was the perfect location for this lifestyle session. With natural light streaming in through the windows plus meaningful details and family keepsakes, it was so dreamy 😍 Here are a few images from the gallery. Do you like color or black and white best?! I’m usually a color fan but I really like how nostalgic and timeless the B&W photos feel.
