Absolutely! Bring on any shape, size, gender, orientation, preference, identity, culture, color, or identification — love is love. And I am a big fan of documenting all of it. I’m so grateful that my job allows me to witness so many different celebrations of love — they are all different, and all so beautiful.
Honestly? If you don't feel that you've connected with me through browsing my site or even after we meet up for a coffee/drink of some kind, you might not want to book me. My ultimate goal is to connect with people so that I can photograph them in the best way possible. To do that, I need to feel like I know you a little bit - what you like, dislike, what your favorite ice cream is, etc. If we don't jive, we might not be the best match - and that's totally fine! There are many talented and amazing wedding photographers out there and I would be happy to recommend someone else to you whose style might be a better fit. But, if you're looking for an easy going, fun, professional experience that ends with amazing wedding images, I'm the photographer for you. Both the connections we make with our clients as photographers, and the beautiful, emotional moments we document for you on your wedding day make this one of the most fun jobs on the planet.
100% yes. If you haven’t already been following me on Instagram (@jenna.brisson), then you should know - animal people are my people. We have two rescue pups at home. Most of my clients have pets, too - so we’ll get along just fine! If you do plan to bring your pet, please just give me a heads up so we can make sure we plan for a pet friendly location and have someone with us to attend to you pup when needed!
In three words? Natural light, editorial, emotional. It’s genuine, fun and honest. My style leans a bit more towards the photojournalistic/candid side of things than the standard wedding photographer side. What does that mean? It just means I’m here to document REAL moments. Not perfect moments, not curated Pinterest moments (although there are some amazing ones out there!), but YOUR moments. The good, the funny, the inappropriate, the wild and crazy and the real. No matter how your day unfolds, I will be there to help you remember it all. Will I prompt you? Of course! There is a time and place for that in your day (especially when we capture those breathtaking portraits of the two of you — I love a good portrait). What I won’t do is interrupt the flow of your day to capture something in a way that it didn’t organically happen. I will be there to photograph you as you (but in the most beautiful light possible). I promise.
Lastly, my editing style adds depth, but keeps things real - because in 20 years you want to remember yourself as you were - beautiful, happy and in love.
Yes. Without a doubt. Absolutely. These photos are important for so many reasons. I love candids and share them all over, but there is also a time and place for traditional portraits. Your mom, your grandma, and you (20 years from now) will be grateful to have these. Looking at the camera and smiling isn’t anyone’s favorite activity, but we’ll make it as painless as possible. Promise.
I love travel almost as much as I love photographing weddings, so yes! I have recently traveled to Jamaica and Aruba for destination weddings. Depending on location, I often include travel for most U.S. locations in my rates, and I offer special rates for international weddings, so if you’re thinking of getting hitched anywhere inside or outside of the U.S., send me an email and we can work out the details.
Each session and event varies, but for couple sessions / engagements / proposals I guarantee a minimum of 50 fully edited, high resolution images that you may download and print/share wherever your heart desires!
Weddings usually tally somewhere around 700 - 800 for full day (8 hour) coverage. Each image in your final gallery is hand edited one by one. See real client galleries here.
It's one thing to spend 8 hours photographing someone's wedding, and it's a whole other thing to choose the best images and edit them to look the absolute best that they can. It can also be a time consuming process - you don't want to rush these! I know how excited you are to receive the final gallery - trust me, I've been there. But I promise you the wait is worth it! On average, couple sessions, engagements and proposals usually take about 2-4 weeks and full weddings/larger events will be delivered somewhere around 4-6 weeks. The wait WILL be worth it.
When you're ready, please fill out my contact form. Once received, I'll send you an email with more about my work, as well as a pricing guide. Assuming we’re a good fit, the next step is to schedule a phone call or video chat (or to grab a drink if you’re local!) This gives us a chance to get to know each other a little better before you book me for your big day. After all, your photographer might be spending more time with you than your other half on your wedding day -- we might as well get to know each other.
Oh I'm so flattered you like my work. Thank you! The next step would be to fill out my contact form. From there, I'll set up a time to chat. After that, I'll send you over my contract and a draft invoice. I require a signed contract, as well as a 25% non-refundable retainer payment to consider you booked on my calendar. From there, I'll send you a questionnaire to get to know the two of you a bit better and we will chat regularly leading up to the day of your session/wedding/event.
