Hello there. I'm Jen and I am a mother of two..... (four legged babies that resemble little dogs) Mimi and Mylo, They are JRTs one of which is still a puppy ...when it suits anyway's. I am happily married and live in a small town called Andover in Hampshire. Originally I was born and raised in Romsey Hampshire and spent my days and nights Riding, Dreaming, Eating and sleeping horses.
I spent 12 years as personal trainer and as much as I loved the work it still wasn't quite where I wanted to be in my career. One day I took a long hard look at where I was and where I wanted to be and soon realised my passion was Photography. I went to college three times a week after work for the next two years and got distinctions in all of my courses. My Photographic work still hangs in the college to this day. Something I am very proud of and I have not looked back since. I have always had an eye for photography and I usually have the image I'm striving for in my head before I even picked up my camera.
I went on to Photograph Children, Pets and portraiture for the first two years with a few weddings in between to build a portfolio and see what I really enjoyed between those types of Photography. I soon realised that weddings were where I was always happiest and at my best. I love the fact weddings can be fast paced and fun (something that can really get the creative juices flowing), but also they have that intimacy (this is where I am able to create a variety of more natural, private and intimate photographs). I meet so many people and no two people or couples are the same. I am blessed to be asked to document peoples weddings in an unobtrusive way that will create a lifetime of memories for them.
I'm in a great position to share my experiences with others. I love to use natural light and I use a reportage style of photographing. Being a very organised person enables me to ensure you're special day runs like clockwork. (Even when we have the odd hiccup, at times these are inevitable but usually still flow with the day so we never experience drama) Phew!
Meet Your photographer
My wedding photography service is something very personal to myself because I photograph a story that’s bespoke to you as individuals.
It's truly an honour and a thrill to become part of the lives of each new couple that I work with every year, and to be chosen to capture the memories of the most important chapter in the story of their love. I accept a maximum of 15 weddings per year in order to form a relationship with every couple to provide them with an amazing, highly personalized experience and the best quality Photographs of their unique Wedding Day.
A pre-wedding consultation is a must for me before booking anyone's wedding, this way I can get a clear idea of what you would like and how you envisage your end product. Many people have an idea of what they want and I don't wish to disappoint them.
I am an enthusiastic, energetic photographer with lots of imaginative ideas that’s fed on photographing people’s very different personalities. However, on the day I have a relaxed, calm but focused and fun photographic style that captures everyone. This helps people to forget that there is a camera there at all.
My aim is to bring you uniquely beautiful and contemporary photos of your unforgettable day So that you can look back at your album and remember it as if it were not just a memory but like it was only yesterday.
In the run up to your wedding I like to meet with the Bride and Groom for an engagement shoot (package choice permitting) so that we can get to know each other, putting any camera shy fears to one side.
As well as the main details we will also discuss the finer points for the day and anything you feel you would like to me ask about.
I want you to know that on your wedding day you can just sit back and enjoy, in the knowledge that you can trust me to have it all covered for you Leaving nothing for you to have to think about After all it’s about you, "The Bride & Groom" and the happy guests. I realise Weddings are very much about getting to know people as well as thinking on your feet, and that you have to have a strong personality to photograph someone's wedding day. For me its also about, Meeting people and new experiences because no two weddings are ever the same. People's personalities make your wedding photography if you get to know them and use this in your imagery, not forgetting to plan plan plan.
This really is everything that I love to do.
ALL wedding packages come with two photographers so that nothing is left to chance. The 2nd photographer can concentrate on those candid images that everyone forgets. This really adds to the fun of the day. In a nutshell, we can capture everything from the romantic poses and family portraits down to the little things that you may miss in a fast paced and very busy day.
I offer bespoke wedding digital albums, contemporary wedding books and a wide variety of products from canvases, photographs, framed choices and my new metal prints or acrylic blocks. You'll definitely be spoilt for choice.
