Getting To Know Your Photographer

When you book your photographer, whether it’s for a quick family session or a full day wedding, it’s incredibly important that you get to know your photographer, and they’re someone you can really gel with. The last thing you want is an awkward session or an awkward interaction (I can’t think of anything worse)….(well, I can, but it awkward encounters rank pretty high on my list of things to avoid).

While there is no replacement for getting to know your photographer face to face (and if you want to meet up to chat about your wedding or engagement, then count me in, and hit me up), but I thought I would take the time to introduce myself here! So, without further ado…

Hi!! I’m Jenna! I’m a Canadian girl (with a strange “intercontinental” accent, I’m sorry in advance for the mess up that is my accent), who managed to somehow hop-skip-and-jump my way to the UK, and have stuck around since I arrived (to the ultimate annoyance of all my Canadian friends)!

Me….in China

Me….in China

After spending three months in Peru, I came to the UK for “quick” one year trip, and 10 years later….I’m still here.

So, what do you need to know about me? I’ll tell you all about my number one boy in another post, but sneak peek here….he’s incredibly handsome and I’m obsessed with him.

I love to travel. Although most of my travel is between the UK and Canada, so that I can keep in touch with my family and friends, when I get the opportunity I love to visit new places and see new countries. I’ve spent a few months in Peru (as I said above), three months in India working, seen the Maldives and Dubai…but most recently I had a quick little trip to Beijing.

I was lucky enough to be able to take the time off work, and go explore this amazing city. It is so beautiful. I loved walking through the temples, and just seeing all the history of the place. The architecture is incredible, I was so happy to have my camera, and was lucky enough to travel with someone who loves to take photos as much as I do. The Great Wall of China isn’t too far away from the city, and it was so so cool, and I am so lucky to have been able to see it in clear weather. Thankfully I’m relatively used to early mornings (thank you puppy for the consistent 7am wake ups) so we managed to get to the wall early early, and we were some of the only people on the wall.

Although I love my pup more than anything - I still spent most of the trip cooing over the animals that I met (granted, most were birds, I still stalked every dog I saw). You should know….I just love animals.

My next post I’ll introduce Roscoe to you all - and explain why I love dogs, and love the idea of incorporating them in your photographs (they ARE family). But, in the meantime, I can’t wait to get to know more about you, your family, or even your wedding. I love (LOVE) hearing engagement stories. I want you to tell me the lead up, and all the little details.

So, please, do get in touch if you’re recently engaged or need a refresh of your family photos. I’m waiting to hear from you!
