Hey, y’all!

My name is Jayna, and I’m a twenty-five year old girl born and raised in East Tennessee. I love reading, driving with my windows down while blasting my favorite music (most likely *NSYNC or anything country if I’m in a singing mood), and spending time with the amazing people in my life. I only wear yoga pants around the house and cry at proposal or pregnancy announcement videos. On any given weeknight, you’ll find me on the couch catching up on all of those stereotypical 20-something female tv shows (anything from The Bachelor franchise, PLL, and Scandal to name a few). I am also totally addicted to true crime shows and documentaries, even though they keep me up at night. I make up for it the next morning by drinking four cups of my favorite vanilla iced coffee at the crack of dawn. I’m obsessed with anything Narnia, Disney (old school, not the new stuff), and Christmas Vacation. Basically, I am a giggly Southern girl with a passion for photography and a twist of entrepreneurship.


I’ve been a lifestyle and wedding photographer since 2012. My passion for photography has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people in the past few years, and every client of mine has blessed me in some way!

If you love to have fun and don’t mind humoring me by laughing at my sarcastic jokes, let’s plan a photo shoot! I love to shoot anyone from newborns, to couples that have been married for sixty years, and everything in between. I am so blessed by the relationships that I’ve been able to create with the people in front of my lens, and I would LOVE for you to be one of those people, too!

If you are interested in hiring me as your photographer, send me a message or find me on Facebook at Jayna Watkins Photography. I would love to hear from you!
