about the author

Hey there, I'm Jenn!

I'm a wedding photographer with a terrible memory, so I love creating images that feel a little bit like you're remembering them (and guess what--having a great photo will help with that if you're just like me!)

Working with creative people who want to tell a story through their photos lights me up. I love exploring little towns, watching birds, and snapping sweet smiles.
