ROM THE BEACHES OF MEXICO & THE CITY STREETS OF LONDON, TO HISTORIC DETROIT BALLROOMS & PRIVATE ESTATES IN NORTHERN MICHIGAN, JENNIFER HAS CAPTURED LOVE NEAR AND FAR FOR SOPHISTICATED COUPLES WITH IMPECCABLE TASTE WHO APPRECIATE TIMELESS IMAGES AND CLASSIC STYLING
THINGS I LOVE:
A childhood hobby of art directing photoshoots of my little sister with my film camera led to a lifelong love of photography and creating art.
After college in Ann Arbor and a career in celebrity PR and pro hockey in Southern California, I was drawn back to my passion for photography in a meaningful way: telling compelling stories of couples in love in my signature style.
I'm a pop culture enthusiast, run on equal parts iced chai tea and green juice, live for afternoon movie matinees, never miss an episode of The Bachelor and will hop on a plane any chance I get.
One of my favorite things to do for both work & pleasure is travel. Aimlessly wandering a new city, finding unexpected delights around every corner and planning my days around the meals I want to eat and the museums I want to visit make me the happiest. I've photographed couples in 7 (soon to be 8) countries & 11 states and I always have my bags packed for the next adventure. Here's the destinations currently on the top of my must visit list:

IF YOU WERE NODDING YOUR HEAD WHILE READING THE ABOVE,
YOU ARE DEFINITELY A JB BRIDE.
Growing up, my Dad had a vintage Rock-Ola jukebox in our living room spinning 45's. He ingrained his love of music in me and when I started my business, I realized I could combine that love of music with my love of photography. Over the years, I've gotten to photograph some of the biggest names out there for select media outlets, including Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, Harry Styles, One Direction, Sam Hunt, Kelsea Ballerini, Green Day, Imagine Dragons, Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Thomas Rhett, 5 Seconds of Summer, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton and many more. My concert photography has graced the instagram pages of Gigi Hadid, Kelsea Ballerini, Sublime with Rome, Parachute & CBS Detroit. On my dream list of musicians to still photograph: The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King & The Weeknd.
