Allow me to introduce…

12 August 2010

…K + C’s wedding photographers! Last fall, as soon as we had decided on a place and an approximate date, it was time to think about a photographer. We went through a few emotional days with much gnashing of teeth as we compared the level of skill and style of work we (I) wanted, and the price necessary to hire said skill and style. Our budget meant New England big-hitters like Justin & Mary Marantz were out.

We were sad and stumped for a few days, until it dawned on me — Jenna! I had followed Jenna from her Weddingbee days to her personal blog That Wife, and was thrilled when she started her photography business. You know how wedding budget advice articles are always saying to hire an amazing up-and-comer? Well, we think we got her, and are beyond thrilled she’ll be joining us in Maine in just a few days. She’s currently based in Texas, but will be relocating to Chicago this fall.

Though I’ve never met Jenna, I feel like I already know her, and one of the things I’m most excited about is her personality — K + C are a bit photo-phobic, and I think she’ll put them right at ease. However, her work speaks for itself! A few of my favorites:

You can see more of Jenna’s work here, and read her hilarious and thought-provoking personal blog here.

We’re also thrilled to have Meredith from & Unlimited joining us as a second shooter! Meredith is a longtime P&P reader, and has been so supportive of all our ideas and projects for this wedding since we started planning. It only seems appropriate that she’ll be in attendance to help document the big day! I also love that she lives in Maine. A few of my favorites from her portfolio:

This one might be my favorite — it was just taken recently, on the way back from Meredith’s first-ever trip to our island! I couldn’t believe the coincidence.

You can see more of her work on her blog here.

I probably don’t need to say it again, but I will: we are thrilled that these ladies will be joining us next Saturday. We can’t wait to meet you both!

    YAY! Jenna makes me want to buy a dSLR. I took a photography class in high school and I almost forgot how much I loved it (before dSLRs existed of course). Sigh.
