let's get to know each other
I'm a wedding and portrait photographer, based in Charleston, South Carolina. You can usually find me hanging with my big mutt, and exploring all that the city of Charleston has to offer. I'm also a big nerd, and indulge in several fandoms like Dr. Who, Harry Potter, Star Trek AND Star Wars (I know, blasphemy to love them both). You'll also see the occasional travel post sprinkled in as well, as I try to get out of Charleston and the country as much as possible.
I studied Fine Art Photography at the University of Colorado at Boulder, many...many years ago, and it was there that I really found a love of weddings! From there, I went on to work in a commercial studio. I spent some time living abroad in South Korea, working for a publishing company and came back to work in corporate marketing and event planning in Charleston. In 2020, I finally took the leap and Jenni Lauren Photography was officially born.
Life, Love, and Joy
I am also recently married! My husband and I had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by most of our favorite people. So, believe me when I say, I understand the emotional roller coaster that is wedding planning! My best advice is to savor every moment, because it will go by quickly. And that's what makes my job so worth it. I want to be there to capture those moments so you can look back on your day and remember exactly how you felt. I'm here to tell your story and I aim to show real, human emotion.
Your wedding is all about you, your family and dear friends. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Laugh loudly. Kiss slowly. Hug tightly.
I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.
