Aloha! I'm Jenna, the woman behind the lens, and HOPEFULLY your future wedding/Engagement or Honeymoon photographer.
Right now you are making some big decisions in choosing the right photographer for you. The one that captures the moments that are important to you as well as the relationships and bonds between you and all the important people in your life. The one who will take captivating images that you can show your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and on and on.
Photographing these types of moments and relationships is what I love to do. I am passionate about my job as a wedding photographer and I can't help but be honored by the responsibility of capturing someones precious and sacred moments.
I have been photographing professionally for almost 9 years and knew almost immediately that weddings and couples was where my passion would lay. I also have a double B.A in Music (Vocal Studies) and English along with an MBA. These things have given me the knowledge, skill, and professional developement to run a successful wedding photography studio.
I have received numerous awards through Fearless, I was named Best of Weddings in 2014 byDenim and Grace Magazine, and I have been published in multiple publications such as The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Junebug Weddings, and more.
WHO I AM
In my personal life I call myself a wanderer and a doer. I have a never ending thirst for travel, exploration, and experience. I am always trying something new, and every year I make a goal to visit somewhere I have never been before.
I'm a passionate and ambitious person and a never ending multi tasker. In high school I was a singer in several show choirs, a musical theatre performer, a violinist in several orchestra's, and I was a proud Winter Park High School competitive swimmer. In college I led several organizations, volunteered as a school ambassador, was the photographer and editor of our campus literary magazine, performed in several theatre productions, and was on the cross country and track and field team.
My passion and ambition hasn't waned as I have grown older. Just last year, I was the lead singer of a rock band which was an incredible experience. This year, I am focusing more on my braodway roots and hoping to get involved again in theatre. I am also the founder and owner of HI On Life Photography Conference in Hawaii, a large wedding photography conference featuring some of the biggest names in the wedding industry.
I have two energetic kids who I love more than life itself, and who regardless of everything I've listed above are my greatest passion and my greatest accomplishment. I also have an amazing supportive husband who is a huge part of my business behind the scenes.
I leave you all with a very amateur recording I did of the Moana song How Far I'll Go. This song represents my love of adventure and travel and my strong love for the polynesian islands. It features my 2016 images of my time here in Hawaii on the various islands of Oahu, Maui, and Kauai as well as Portland, Oregon, and all over Ireland and Scotland. Living in Hawaii has been one of my greatest adventures so far!
