Hello, My name is Jennifer! My brand is based all around authentic candid moments! My goal is to always capture the nuances and those in between moments throughout the day in an artful and documentary way.



My background is in photography and I have been happily documenting weddings for five years full time and have two bachelor of Arts degrees in Fine Art and Journalism from the University of Minnesota. My vision is to take my photojournalism experience and Fine Art background to tell a compelling story of your life's events. My natural curiosity toward image making lead me to start getting involved with video. My partner, Dan, and I work hard to capture your day in an upbeat and exciting way! With my eye for CANDID moments, composition and all around extensive wedding knowledge and with Dan's background in music and talent for editing, we are the perfect combination for making your wedding video lively and memorable. We come together as a team to every wedding bringing with an assistant. We are passionate about storytelling and very excited to continue on this path.



Artist Statement: For me, Art is about capturing a small part of a much larger world. I live to explore, create and tell stories in a candid and documentary style. I gravitate toward imagery that has energy and momentum. As an image storyteller, I aspire to show my clients an authentic and artful interpretation of their own life stories. Each couple brings a distinct personality and energy, sparking new ideas that add their own flair to the story.

I can't even begin to express my overwhelming appreciation for the work that one of my photographers, Jennifer Whalen, did to master the detail, simplicity, and authentic memory of our wedding day. She captured so many incredible shots and has shared some of them on her blogpost. Not only was she the perfect addition to our photography duo but I loved the way Nick and I officially met her in person which must have been a sign that she was meant to be!
Now that our go-to photographer for all of our family events is leaving the state, I will personally be using her for our future events and stand by her work, professionalism, and eye for capturing the perfect images, HANDS DOWN 100%.

Thank you Jennifer!!! ‪#‎readysetwed‬

Jennifer Whalen created a beautiful video of our wedding day. I hadn't originally planned to get a videographer, as I felt that photos would be sufficient to capture the day. I am so happy that I ended up having Jennifer capture my event on film! This short video captures EVERYTHING! Jennifer's artistic eye and skill allowed her to take moments from throughout the day and create a video that captures the emotion, fun, and beauty of our event. I have watched it countless times and shared it with many family and friends. People who were not able to attend the event felt like they had been there when they watched this film. My mom has forwarded me many messages from her friends who have become teary-eyed from watching the video. Like many brides, I worked hard for months prior to our wedding to ensure that the day was perfect only for the time to fly by during the event. I am so grateful for Jennifer, as her video was able to capture all the little details and the true essence of our event. The video allows me to relive all the special moments that I feel like were gone in the blink of an eye. During the wedding, my husband and I were so busy fulfilling our duties as bride and groom and Jennifer never bugged us for any specific shots. She was so great because she was so discrete with her filming and when watching the video I was amazed with all her shots, as I don't even remember her being there to capture them. I highly recommend Jennifer to capture your event.

Jennifer and her partner did an AMAZING job on our wedding video! It was incredible! They were probably one of my favorite vendors from the wedding. They were both very professional, fun, honest, and genuinely nice people. The work that they did was nothing but the highest quality. If you were thinking about not having videography (like I was) think again. I promise you will not regret hiring Jennifer. I am so happy we have that video to remind us of what an amazing day it was. It goes by so fast ... capture it with more than a picture, I'm so glad we did!

Jennifer was worth every penny. Not only does she have a vey easy going vibe but her work is stellar, as you can see. She delivered and captured EVERYTHING. Every handshake and shadow and smile and nuisance. And she also had a way of being unobtrusive about it! We highly recommend this photographer. You will not be disappointed. It also worked out that we had her assistant, Dan, on the day of our wedding as well. That was a dream combination. If this is possible for you, definitely add this as well.

Jennifer captured our wedding day perfectly! Our photographs are beautiful and really show the excitement and emotion of the day. Jennifer took all of the photographs that we asked and had many more great ideas.
She was very responsive to questions and emails.
Jennifer is very professional. She was energetic and ready to work from the moment she arrived in the morning for hair and make up until she left well into the dance. She was there to capture our entire day and offered great advice for the day in general as well as choosing some locations to take photos and hang out between the ceremony and reception.
One thing that we really loved about Jennifer is that while she was there and attentive the whole day, we were not constantly taken away to pose for photos. She took photos of us celebrating with our friends and family.
Overall, I definitely recommend Jennifer! She is responsive, creative and wonderful person to share your wedding day with!

Jennifer is *amazing*! It was important for me to find a photographer who captured emotions well, didn't do a ton (if any) editing, and was very creative in terms of shots. I loved the natural, vibrant style of Jennifer's photos, as well as, her ability to capture laughter and happiness and lots of it! I was also drawn to her photography as there were so many unique shots that I hadn't seen before. And everything I saw delivered. Jennifer is fabulous to work with in addition to having awesome work: personable, funny, professional, and very obviously passionate about her work. She also likes for you to dream with her and get creative with your shoots. At times, she won't tell you what to do, but to be yourself and have fun. It's easy to relax and be comfortable around someone so inspired by true emotion and beauty. Even my guests raved about Jennifer after the wedding. She is second to none.

Choosing Jennifer to be our wedding photographer was the easiest decision we could have made (besides the decision to actually get married of course)! From when we first met with her until we picked up our album, the process was wonderful and Jennifer put us at ease. Near two years later, I still look at our engagement and wedding photos and see something new that she captured and smile as I look at the pictures. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a photographer for a wedding or to capture any other life event.

Jennifer was great to work with. We could not have been happier with how wonderful our pictures and album turned out. She captured every important moment and many candid moments we didn't even know were important until we saw all the proofs. She made sure to confirm she had taken all the pictures we were hoping for before leaving for the night and every image was beautiful.

Jennifer Whalen is not just a photographer she is an artist. She was able to take what I wanted from a few words and turn it into memories that will truly last a lifetime. She captured things at my wedding I never saw but thankfully she caught! Having her there at the most important day of my life was a blessing. She felt like one of my friends on my big day, and the speed, I got my online viewing lightening fast and the quality is well..there are no words for it...People would be crazy not to book her!

Jennifer Whalen was an excellent photographer at our wedding! We couldn't have asked for a more detailed and artistic photographer to document our special day! We have over 1000 beautiful photos to remember our wedding by. Our engagement session beforehand was excellent as well. She made a great keepsake book for guests to sign at our reception (which we got tons of compliments on). Jennifer was great at communicating and answering any questions that we had throughout the planning process. She also had a great balance between traditional wedding photos and fun wedding photos that make our albums truly special! The cost of her services are completely worth the talent of her work. I would highly recommend her!

I would not have traded Jennifer for any photographer in the Twin Cities. She was professional, talented, and FUN! Jennifer took amazing photos for us and we had a blast working with her. We now have great photos to remember our special day for the rest of our life!

To sum up our experience with Jennifer, I truly feel in working with her as our photographer we got WAY more than our money's worth.

Jennifer Whalen Photography in one word was amazing. I can't say enough about how comfortable Jennifer made us feel in front of the camera. Her vision in creating breathtaking, memorable photographs is second to none. She makes every shot look like it belongs on the cover of a bridal magazine. Jennifer's ability to get those shots is not by accident. She is directive, but not invasive in the special moments of your day. She is fun, but in control to get through the formal pictures and group shots. We now have pictures we are proud to share with our family and friends.

We had a blast and Jennifer captured the emotion of the day. Her photography packages are customizable to each individual couple's needs. We will proudly display our wedding photos as the wonderful works of art that they are.

Jennifer captured all the beautiful details, amazing artistic photos, and all the love and emotion of the day - from me and my groom, our families, guests, and wedding party! The final results of eight hours of relaxed fun was over 700 images (all of which she provided to us on CD).
In addition to her very beautiful and unique artistic shots, Jennifer took the time prior to the day to discuss my "must-have" family shots. This included a large, very-challenging-to-organize family photo. Jennifer was so patient and gracious in getting everyone together, and the results are phenomenal. I cannot express how wonderful it is to have such beautiful and thorough documentation of such a special day. Jennifer is professional, down-to-earth, cheerful, and she is an expert at putting people at ease. She made us feel as though OUR wedding was the most special event she had ever had the pleasure of shooting.
On the day of the wedding my family commented on how pleasant and efficient she was, and after they saw the photos, their comment was "She is not just a photographer, she is an artist!" Absolutely worth every penny and more.

Jennifer rocks the Twin Cities wedding photography scene! We chose her because she has a gift for capturing emotion. We are extremely pleased with both our engagement and wedding photos and would highly recommend her to anybody who wishes to have a creative, playful flair to their photos. She really listened to what we wanted, and had fun suggestions of her own. We loved that her best friend is her second shooter – what better team could you ask for? They shot photos until the last drop of sunlight was gone. She also made us a feature in Minnesota Bride's blog. Color us impressed! Jen & Cory 9/26/10

Jennifer is a fun, yet professional young woman who was the perfect photographer for our wedding. From our initial consultation to the wedding day to crafting our wedding album, she was easy to communicate with and wonderful to work with. We had multiple preparation sessions (including an engagement shoot so we could get to know each other) before our wedding so we didn't have to worry about the photography details at all on the big day. Jennifer and I sat down about a month prior to the wedding and outlined all of the photos I wanted throughout the day. Because of this she was able to stay in the background when needed and lead the group when needed. We received a wide variety of excellent candid, action, and posed photographs...and not to sound cliche, but they were all AMAZING and exceeded our expectations. In my opinion, her greatest strength is capturing her subject's emotions, both candid emotion and inspiring emotion for "posed" pictures. Overall, I was more than pleased with her ability to capture our entire wedding day in photo. She captured our emotions, our personalities, our wedding day. I was thoroughly impressed and would recommend her to any bride.

Jennifer's pictures from our wedding were GORGEOUS. We couldn't believe how wonderful they turned out. They were just the right mix of traditional and artistic. She was also very easy to work with. My friends and family loved her as well. The thing that really sold us though was the album; it is top quality and well worth her reasonable prices. Thanks Jen! Ali and Justin

What was your favorite wedding photo?
My favorite wedding photo is one that Jennifer took after dinner at the reception hall. She pulled Greg and I out onto the golf course at sunset. The clouds were swirling in the sky. It is absolutely beautiful. It could be a painting.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
Jennifer and her assistant, Carrie, were great. Prior to the big day, we had met to go over the essential shots that I wanted to make sure we got. So on the day, everything went smoothly. She took all the shots that I wanted and used her creativity with some additional shots. Our final disc of all images is a great mix of candids, action, and posed pictures. They are of the photojournalistic style, much more modern and less traditional. This is exactly what I wanted.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
In our wedding photo package, we had two photographers. We also got a DVD with all of the high resolution, edited images. This disc can be used where ever we want to print the pictures. Our package also included a beautiful album at a discounted price.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
Jennifer and Carrie were wonderful to work with and put my family and wedding party at ease. They took candid pictures which really allowed everyone to get used to the camera and relax. They were talkative and personable, which made everyone a lot more comfortable with their all day presence.

Jennifer was able to capture outstanding features of the beautiful outdoor setting of our wedding. Our favorite photo was one where John and I stood next to a fountain of sparkling water and Jennifer captured the rainbow that was shimmering in the sunlight!

Jennifer was familiar with the venue and had already planned the shots that we had discussed with her in advance. She offered unique suggestions and welcomed ideas from us, right on the spot. The collections of photographs were outstanding and captured the day moment by moment!

We were very pleased with the diversity in the packages that Jennifer offered. DVDs are very popular and we selected that option. Jennifer offered a second photo assistant if we felt it was necessary.

Jennifer was a master at making me, John and our wedding party feel comfortable. From our first meeting at the Wedding Show, we were impressed with Jennifer's energy and enthusiasm. Her commitment to quality was evident by the communication leading up to our wedding and following the wonderful day.

My husband and I couldn't be happier. I've never enjoyed having my picture taken but I never told Jennifer.. whether she sensed the stress or what-- everything she did that day made me feel special! People always ask what our favorite pictures are and to be honest, I can't choose just one! They were all amazing.

Jennifer was not only professional on our wedding day but very down to earth as well. I had a number of my friends and family come up to be during the reception & tell me what a joy it was talking/meeting with Jennifer.

And lastly, her prices were very reasonable. After talking with other brides and hearing how much they paid I am thankful I was able to have such an awesome photographer at a good price!
