“We are photography nerds. We wanted a talented photographer, not just someone to take wedding photos. We didn’t want run-of-the-mill, overly posed, ‘hold hands with your wedding party and jump in the air’ stuff. We wanted someone skilled and adventurous. We wanted Jenn.
Lucky for us, we had the opportunity to work with her on two occasions. The first time was our wedding in Los Angeles. The pictures were always the most important investment we planned to make in our wedding, and we were floored a couple weeks later when we got the pictures back. Her photos blew everyone away. They were like nothing we had ever seen. They were artistic and beautiful, while still being totally fun and candid. They captured our family and friends laughing and crying and dancing their hearts out. She thoughtfully put together a slideshow of the best pictures of the day, which we still watch regularly. Her pictures tell a story and have become a souvenir of one of the best days of our lives. Lucky for us, working with Jenn did not stop there.
Half of our family is from France and the majority could not come to California for our wedding, so we had a second celebration in Provence the following year. When we planned the second wedding, everyone had one question — ‘What about Jenn?’ Her pictures left an imprint on everyone, even those who couldn’t make it to California. My husband’s family is quite expansive, and every summer they get together at the family’s 100+ year-old fig orchard in Provence, which is where we decided to have the celebration. When Jenn agreed to come to France and shoot Wedding #2, we were thrilled.
It was more than just the party. We wanted her to document my husband’s family, their history, and their tradition of meeting every August to reconnect, relax, and spend time together. It was an important story to capture — not of a wedding, but of a family. The pictures would be keepsakes for generations. Of course, Jenn did not disappoint. Memories of cooking together, hanging by the pool, dancing, laughing, having dinner late into the night — regular activities that have happened there in Provence every summer for years — were finally captured in photographs. My husband’s grandfather described the pictures as ‘works of art,’ and they have become talking pieces in everyone’s homes.
In addition to being a kickass photographer, Jenn is incredibly easy to work with. She is very communicative and planning with her is a breeze. If the pictures weren’t enough, everyone in the family loves Jenn and her great personality. We all enjoyed having her stay with us. We often joke of having a third wedding and getting Jenn to come back for more! We would work with her again in a heartbeat.”
