Denver Wedding Photographer


Connected weddings:

You believe in connected weddings because a marriage should be celebrated with the people who mean the most to you and not a person more.


When people talk about intimate weddings they often mean “a small guest count”. But intimate is so much more than small. It’s a state of being within a relationship and a sense of deeply knowing another person to the point that you are completely and utterly yourself with them. Intimacy goes hand in hand with trust, passion, values, and the deep seeded need to connect and understand (and be understood by) other people.

Whether you’re celebrating with five family members in a meadow, 100 of your closest friends at a backyard BBQ, or just the two of you on a mountain top with your dog, surround yourself with those who love you and cherish your relationship for exactly what it is.

As a Colorado and Denver wedding photographer, I want to be there to witness those moments with you. I want to make sure you have evidence of the emotion of your day. But most of all, I want to celebrate YOU.

“Jennie is an absolutely amazing wedding photographer. She does a brilliant job capturing the intimacy and joy shared between a couple, and she makes the (sometimes awkward) experience of being photographed full of laughter and silliness. Jennie is a joy to work with and her photography is breathtaking.”

~Jordan and Ashley

“Jennie captured the vibe of our wedding perfectly, and has this magical, uncanny ability to know just when to press the shutter. Throughout the wedding she was calm, creative, offered suggestions where appropriate, and was game to try new and interesting ideas. I even had a number of guests come up to me to comment on how wonderful Jennie was.”
