{ i believe }

in the pursuit of happiness. i believe in not holding back from what you love. i believe that when you move toward what you love, even when the way is not clear, life will always light a path to happiness. (that path led me to wedding photography.)

{ i believe }

in loving your fiancé/partner/person/love/best friend/spouse generously, and to pieces. may you love with unabashed gusto and an open heart.

{ i believe }

that finding a photographer you love is one of the most important decisions you will make as you plan your wedding.

{ i know }

that no one can guess just how intimate their wedding day will feel until you’re in it, dress slipping over head, tie snugging up to collar, tears sneaking out even after you swore you wouldn’t cry. choose someone you love to witness it, capture it, and save it forever.

i believe it will make a world of difference. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
How many photographers do you work with?
I primarily work alone. On occasion, I team with a talented photog friend to bring you double the photographic goodness.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I never book more than one wedding in a day; however during peak season it's not uncommon to book two weddings per weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I am well networked with photographers in the Portland area and internationally and am committed to doing everything possible to find a replacement should I become unavailable for some unforeseen and unlikely reason. It hasn't happened yet. :)
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I'm a pro-level Canon girl.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Oh yes.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
That depends.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Generally, yes. Just ask!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Requiring a meal would feel a bit pushy to me. :) I'm always honored and appreciative when my couples extend their generosity to me, but it's not required. On any assignment longer than about four hours, I do need a short break at some point -- running around capturing every moment for hours at a stretch takes stamina! I normally clarify the meal/break plan with my couples ahead of time, and bring powerbars just in case ;)
Do you charge for travel?
Not within the greater Portland metro area. I charge reasonable travel fees for locations outside Portland.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
4-6 weeks after the wedding
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
In a private online gallery
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The gallery is available for 90 days.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yep.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. All of my collections offer a full collection of files.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. In addition to an online private gallery, I typically also share images on my blog.
What kind of albums do you offer?
My album offerings shift over time. Ask me!
When will the client get the final album?
It varies a bit, but always timely!

Jenn at luminous studios is simply the best. She always has a smile and a can do attitude. She had lots of suggestions for interesting photos. She even got onto the top of our roof to get a picture of everybody at our garden reception. I can't remember a wedding that I have been to that the guests loved the photographer. People came up to me and told me how impressed they were.

To say that Jen did an amazing job photographing our wedding would be a huge understatement. Jen has an amazingly creative eye and such natural talent. She was a joy to get to know before the wedding, very easy to work with on the day of the wedding, and still a friend of ours even though our wedding day has passed.
Jen is also very flexible in meeting with you. My husband and I had the joy of planning our wedding from half way across the country but Jen handled everything in the most effective and professional manner; phone calls, emails, and quick (but super fun!) meetings when we could fly in to town. She was very flexible with our busy schedule.
I don’t know how she was able to do it, but Jen captured the most intensely emotional pictures from our wedding. The quickest glance, the slightest touch on the arm, the laughter and joy of our friends and family all around us – Jen caught it all in the most breathtaking way. They bring us back to our day better than any video or story ever could. Her pictures tell the story of our wedding day in the most magical and perfect way.
Thank you for being amazing, Jen. You are truly blessed with an incredible gift.
