faq's

 - HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING STYLE? -
My style is very candid and relaxed. I don’t like to get in the way, especially during the ceremony And, unless I tell you to look at the camera, I aim to capture you just as you are. I get a lot of inspiration from fashion magazines and love to put it all together to tell an editorial style story of your wedding day.
However, you can expect me to pose and give you directions for your formal portraits.. Rest assured, that I will help you to be comfortable & relaxed, while posing you in the most flattering styles.

 - WHAT CAMERA DO YOU SHOOT WITH? - 
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III. I have a range of L-series zoom and telephoto lenses as well as several L-series prime lenses at a variety of focal lengths. I have top of the line professional gear and top of the line professional BACK UP gear and lighting with me at every wedding.

 - HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT MY WEDDING? - 
All of my wedding packages include a second photographer. I feel it gives an extra dimension to your wedding day by giving you different angles, guests, and events from your day.

 - HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO BOOK YOUR SERVICES? - 
I advise my clients to book their wedding photographer, as soon as they confirm a wedding date. I will only have a limited number of dates available, so the sooner the better to avoid any disappointment.

I aim for approximately 100 photos taken every hour and you will receive your edited photos approximately 8-12 weeks from your wedding date. I always aim to under promise and over deliver on that contracted timeline and average a 6 week turn around.

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Congratulations! 
 I am sure you are still glowing in the excitement of the proposal and are excited to start planning your wedding day. An Engagement session is a perfect way to capture that glow and excitement and to express you both as a couple.

 This type of photo shoot will prepare you for your big day and give you a change to get comfortable in front of the camera. It will also give us a chance to bond so you feel at ease with me on your big day if you choose me as your wedding photographer.

 I’m happy to give you as much directions as you would like for poses and gorgeous locations. Our local area has some amazing spots to get away and surround ourselves with stunning landscape.

 We can discuss props or styling themes for the shoot as well. It’s a fun way to create a unique look with items and props that are special to you both and illustrate your love. A love I would be honored to capture.

I am looking forward to your session! This is such an exciting time because I have the opportunity to get to know you and/or your children and capture some fun, exciting photographs for you in the process. All work and no play make for boring portraits, so here is what you can expect from Portraits of Grace Photography:

Location, Location, Location: WE will discuss where you would like to have your session (we will already have an understanding based on our prior phone or email conversations). We might meet at your home, the local park or playground, a beautiful green field, the beach, or in my studio. I also scout locations constantly so I may have some last minute suggestions for you to consider as well.

Time Flies!
Please allow one to two hours for our full session. This will enable us to get the perfect amount of images with variety that allows for wardrobe changes as well.

Time Flies!
Please allow one to two hours for our full session. This will enable us to get the perfect amount of images with variety that allows for wardrobe changes as well. We work quickly capturing natural smiles, so photography doesn’t feel like a chore to even the most cynical toddler. Portraits of Grace delights in providing a super safe setting for kids to have FUN!

Not Having Fun is NOT an Option:
Your shoot will be full-on fun, complete with laughs, hugs, and playtime. There’s no manufacturing of a good time; when you are with loved ones, exuberance and spontaneity create the most natural, exciting images.

Treats for the Sweets:
Please bring snacks (but don’t tell the kids) and wet napkins. Be careful with foods that stain mouths and clothing…no red or orange mouths please! :)

about me

hello there

I’m Jenni, mom to Jack and Grace, and photographer behind the lens at Portraits of Grace. I love coffee, Jesus, and music. I am a Facebook addict. I require very little sleep. I work in the infertility field in addition to photography and I am passionate about helping couples create families.

The name Portraits of Grace isn’t just a clever play on my daughter’s name. I believe that any small talent I may have (not only in photography, but in all things) is a gift from God. I want to create for others, something tangible out of something that often times seems so intangible. I want my work to touch people on a way, that when they see it… they see Grace.

Portraits of Grace isn’t a typical “business” for me. I have a strong desire to “help others” and I find myself searching for ways to do that through photography rather than just selling sessions. It is sort of a Ministry to me, and I am involved with several charitable photography organizations including: Photos for Foster Kids, Preemie Prints, The Red Thread Sessions, Quiet Strength and several other organizations.

To Whom Much is Given, Much is Required…. And I have so much more than I deserve. 
I try hard to live by this principle and to teach my kids in whatever small ways possible... This is one of my ways.

Jenni is amazing! We booked Jenni for our wedding but found out we were expecting and pushed a courthouse wedding up instead. This lady ensured our big day felt just as amazing. When asked if I had any special place I wanted to take pics I could think of only one. The ballbpark. Jenni found out how to make it happen! I recommend her to everyone. She's shot us a few times and was down for whatever cookiness I came up with and made it greater than I could ever imagine. Thank you Jenni you are the bees knees!!

We had our engagement photo session over the weekend and couldn't be more pleased with Jenni! She made us feel comfortable and was very accommodating. She sent me a sneak peek right away and the pictures are absolutely beautiful!! She is very talented and professional. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a photographer!

I cannot say enough good things about Jenni and her photography. We were so blown away by our engagement pictures that we didn't even think twice about booking her for our wedding. She is not only extremely talented, she is also so kind, flexible and makes you feel TOTALLY comfortable, whatever the situation may be. It is very clear that this is something that is a PASSION to her..not just a profession. I will continue to use her for any and all pictures we take as a family and I will recommend her to all I know!!
