All genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, sizes, and abilities are welcome here!

Let me tell you a little of my own story. I’m queer, nonbinary, and neurodivergent. I have an eye for detail, an empathetic heart, and a love for connecting with people. I’ve been on a self-love journey for many years as I discovered my most authentic self, and it makes my heart so happy when I get to watch people leave their time with me loving themselves a little more. All my services are intentionally designed to build trust and eliminate any nerves so you feel as comfortable and confident as possible throughout our time together. 

I have a wide range of customizable offers to fit every need. Whether you’re in need of couples or engagement photography, family photography, elopement and wedding photography, or solo portrait photography, I've got you. Plus, you get to choose your editing style and all galleries - even weddings - are delivered within 2 weeks. 

Your heart, your experiences, and the people you love have molded you into someone utterly singular… and I can’t wait to meet you.

I had the pleasure of working with Jenni for our Napa Valley hot air balloon engagement, and I was absolutely blown away by the experience! Jenni has a natural talent for posing couples in traditional and non-traditional gendered poses, which I truly appreciated. She had a clear vision and references for the photos she wanted to take, but she was also open to our input and suggestions. She involved us in her creativity process through making us a Pinterest board! Her intake form is highly detailed, and I feel like it allowed us to vibe better and just feel more relaxed during our session. She was always available to answer my questions and to help me plan my session. She even found the perfect hot air balloon company to work with!

She took the time to get to know us as a couple and to create photos that were truly reflective of our relationship.

I can't even begin to adequately articulate how wonderful our engagement session was. From the initial inquiry all the way through receiving our gallery, Jenni was an incredibly welcoming, collaborative, and responsive person to work with. We chose to work with them as our engagement photographer, because we wanted someone who we knew could bring our queer love to life in photos. We were amazed at just how well Jenni was able to capture our love story. The experience of the shoot itself was also a breeze. The hour went by so quickly, and we never felt awkward or like we didn't know what to do. Jenni gave amazing direction, and especially made my partner (who hates photos) feel a lot better about how to loosen up. If you're not super keen on photoshoots, but need to get wedding related portraits done, Jenni is the photographer for you. 

I felt we were in good hands as soon as Jenni asked me my preference of editing style by sending me examples.

We booked Jenni for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. She is super friendly and great at communicating to figure out exactly what you want. Her turnaround times for sneak peeks and finals are so quick. Not only is Jenni a super fun person to be around, but she makes the photoshoot feel like you're just chatting with a friend. She knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of a camera and she's great at encouraging you during your awkward photo moments. We could not be happier with our experience and with the way our photos turned out. We will definitely be going to her again for any photos we might need!

We were so pleasantly surprised when she got our wedding photo sneak peeks to us by the next day. Both our engagement photos and wedding photos got to us within 2 weeks of the shoot date!

Alanna (she/her)

We are so fortunate to have found such a wonderful photographer! Her eye is impeccable and she embraced all the things we asked of her. We have a park that we frequently visit which is personal to us. She found this amazing tree that we had walked passed a hundred times yet never really noticed. It became the centerpiece of our portrait. This was our first family portrait (aside from our wedding) and she made it feel so natural and fun!! She was great with our 9 and 12 year old kids and our dog. She helped provide tips on attire, which came out fantastic. I recommend Jenni to anyone who is looking for a true professional and master in their craft. 

Due to the unpredictable rains we had, we rescheduled about 5 or more times. She never made us feel bad about it and was always accommodating; working around weather and make-up soccer games. 

ALLY (they/she) & Dan (he/him)

We found Jenni through a video describing a “reverse first kiss” and immediately visited their website to view their portfolio. They were with us for every step of our wedding journey, from engagement to reception and gallery delivery. Jenni has such expertise with photography and specifically helping with confidence. Our photos from our engagement session, ceremony, and reception are priceless. Jenni made us feel comfortable and confident and we had a lot of fun along the way. We love their artistic eye and couldn’t be happier with our photos. 

When our Big Day encountered a serious curveball, they stepped up big time in helping to manage all the moving parts - totally above and beyond what we expected of them.
