Fun Fact about them // They are siblings! Jen is the oldest, Rob shoots weddings with Jen, and their baby sister Lindsay is with PMA doing hair and makeup!
We asked Jennifer to tell us about what inspired her to pursue a career in weddings and how he got started in the industry.
Since I was a little girl I’ve been fascinated with making people feel beautiful and look amazing in front a camera. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of dressing up my baby sister & photographing her with the family polaroid camera. I guess there isn’t a whole lot that has really changed since then. I am eternally grateful for the bond I share with my siblings, Rob and Linz. I’m the oldest, I guess you can say natural born boss. My brother just a couple of years younger, always by my side, my confidant, the real artist in the family. My baby sister came after I hoped and dreamed and wished for her many times, I was 7, she has been my baby and my muse ever since. Maybe I dreamed for this too! Working with my siblings.
Weddings sort of happened upon mistake, when people just started asking me to shoot their weddings! I love making women feel beautiful and confident in front of my camera, and there really isn’t a more important day for this than her wedding day. I also love love, to me capturing those true genuine moments fuels my soul.
Jennifer also shared what her favorite part about being in weddings is.
I like to be the boss 🙂 Just kidding. But not really. I put a lot of myself into what I do and I’m generally by the bride’s side the entire day. We do everything we can to make sure that all those little things that may go wrong, don’t. And if they do, we take care of it. On the day of the wedding, our bride is our baby, we protect her and make sure she gets everything she wants!!
Jennifer is also sharing the one piece of advice she likes to give couples planning their wedding.
Photography is the only tangible thing you get to show from this beautiful day, choose a photographer who’s work moves your heart. And if you are going to commission a great photographer, make sure you also hire a great hair & makeup artist!
