Hi!! I'm Jennifer-an artist, a mother, and a Christian. There is a lot more to me, but those 3 things really define me, because they are part of, and direct, all other aspects of my life. I love adventures and becoming best friends with the brides and families I photograph. Connection and communication are very important to me!
I grew up as an artist. My father is a professional photographer, and my mother has a very creative and free spirit, making the most out of every situation with her wonderful creative energy. I always say I'm an artist first and a photographer second. I will approach your wedding with a Fine Art perspective and a documentary style. I am keen at anticipating special moments before they unfold with my camera in my hand and ready to "get the shot". I am in love with capturing all the little tiny stories that make up the big story of your big day. Many times there are things that happen the bride is not privy to, and she gasps and cries when she receives her images. That's exactly what I want to do for you, and I will.
As a mother I am terribly imperfect, and I am constantly making mistakes, learning and growing, but I can't imagine my life without my children! Their little souls are the most important in my life, and my relationship with them and God has shown me how to love AND how to photograph love. Jacob is 16, and a lover of science and all things Call of Duty. Guinevere is 14, and she hates to admit it, but is a beautiful budding artist-like her mom. Apollo is 2-he's crazy, terrible, sweet, loving, and ENERGETIC! I really don't know where I would be without the 3 of them-they make my heart shine in ways no one else could.
My husband and I have one of those fairytale relationships. We got married 1 month after dating, and it has been a journey that's taken us so many places physically and spiritually. Daniel is my biggest supporter, and he likes to assist and attend when he's available. Pretty soon I'll be mentoring him as well!
God has given me a unique gift, and I owe all of that talent to Him first and foremost. I also can't thank Jesus enough for dying on the cross for my sins. Love is sacred and from God, so I take my ability to photograph that commitment between a man and a woman very seriously.
FINE ARTIST + DAY DREAMER
Jennifer Brecheisen Photography
As an experienced Fine Art Wedding Photographer , I’ve photographed a wide variety of events, all in search of that special moment. The perfect day begins with you; your originality, taste, and style inspire everything I do. I will be illustrating your love story through my lens, providing you with a collection of images that look and feel as authentic as your love. I like to use a Documentary approach to your wedding whether it be an adventurous mountain top wedding to a Luxury Hotel Wedding. I connect well with romantic brides, boho chic brides, lovers, dreamers, and artists. I enjoy outdoor and environmental weddings, and I strive to create a natural light feel to most weddings; however, I am versatile and will add dramatic lighting and flare for up-scale and elegant weddings. Jennifer Brecheisen Photography is also a team. I always have a second shooter present for all of my packages, and I usually employ a lighting assistant/3rd shooter. Tim Williams & William Folsom (pictured below) are my main second shooters, and we develop a plan together to make sure you have the most successful wedding photos from preparation pictures to formals. A team allows me to deliver a variety of images, and we are able to get more of the "mini-stories" that make up the big story of your narrative.
Let's grab a beer or coffee and chat! I can't wait to hear your love story.
