There are a lot of keywords floating around the wedding photography industry to describe the type of style the photographer takes on. I’m sure you’ve heard them all: Photojournalism, editorial, documentary, fine art, candid, light and airy, dramatic, etc.
I approach weddings with a mix of editorial and storytelling. (posed and candids) I rarely follow a "script" or typical plan, however I do always take the same approach.
I love documenting human emotion and relationships. Connection and love, and of course, beauty in light and composition. Essentially I want to turn the moments on your wedding day into art.
I take a hands-off approach to wedding photography (until it comes to family portraits+couples portraits - where I will then offer guidance)
I deliver 70% colour / 30% black and white (although I show more black and white images on my website!)
Throughout a wedding day I will be quietly observing, taking storytelling images that create the essence of what the day truly feels like.
Based on your preference which we will discuss together, I can either be hands on - giving you a lot of guidance and direction, or hands off, allowing the day to unfold naturally, or a mix of both.
I love getting to know my clients beforehand via zoom so I can truly understand them as individuals.
For the most part, this process is a collaboration between you and me. I am here to serve you and create artful beautiful images that tell the story of your day.
In terms of the actual look of my photos, I deliver both colour and black and white (usually about 30% of the delivered wedding images are black and white). The feel of the photos will directly relate to the energy of the day, if your day is full of laughter and silliness – it will shine through in the images, just like if the day is quiet, intimate, and gentle – the photos will encompass this vibe.
what inspires me
we are a good fit if
You value the relationships in your lives and the people at your wedding. My inspiration on a wedding day comes from the beautiful love between you and your guests as well as your partnership.
You value photography - It's important that I am not just hired because you need a wedding photographer, but because you want one, more specifically you want the story of the day and the meaningful relationships in your life captured, from my perspective. I am going to come into your wedding day with my own background, emotions, and connections to people in my own life, These have all shaped me and given me a particular lens to watch your day through. I will watch and document your day as it unfolds. I will take your images home, and create a story for you, a retelling of your day, The images you receive will provide an emotional narrative of how I perceived and felt your day, and 30, 20 maybe even 10 years from now, this narrative will be the memory of your day. You are not just hiring a person to take photos, you are hiring someone to create your memory of one of the most important days of your life.
I am endlessly inspired by human connection and emotion. I study art, film, music and people as a source of inspiration for my work. I like to think that my super power is being able to truly see the essence of your soul and your story.
movies, music, Art and life
My influences come from
I often think about the fact that our images will outlive us. I think about future generations digging through hard drives and albums and discovering these images. I think about the stories that people will weave together based on the clues we leave behind.
How much we loved, Who we loved, what mattered to us, what kind of life we lived.
I think about this evidence that we document, for ourselves and for others.
What an honour it is to provide proof of love, proof of joy, proof of your existence to a future generation.

Jennifer is a true artist - her work cannot be replicated. She is incredible. Our wedding photos are unique yet timeless, and we LOVE them. Our photos are fun, natural, and she totally captured "us" even though we had just met.

Jennifer’s work speaks for itself; it is artful, unique, and beautiful. We were fortunate enough to have had her with us on our wedding day, and she captured the emotions and the romance of the evening perfectly.
