Working with Jen was an absolute delight and we could not be more thrilled with our wedding photos.

In just a few short conversations, using her skills as a former journalist, Jen was able to discern how we saw her role in our wedding day. Jen asked for a shot list in the weeks before the wedding and she did a great job getting those pictures. A few of the shots I requested were to take place during the preparation phase, before the ceremony, and when it got a little hectic and I wanted to say, "No, that one doesn't matter, we can skip it!" Jen was a calming presence, reminding me we had plenty of time. I'm so glad she took the time to find out what was important to us before the craziness of the day set in.

Jen was always professional, but also always fun! Her approach is to let the couple enjoy themselves, not be consumed by photo shoots, and that was such a relief on the day of the wedding. It's amazing how, looking at the collection of photos, it seems like she was omnipresent, but she was never dragging us away from the party!

I, like most brides in this age of social media, saw a LOT of wedding photos in the months leading up to our wedding. This means I can accurately say: Jen's work is truly exceptional. On our rainy, foggy wedding day, she found light that no normal person could ever see. She also used the fog to frame us in some fairy tale-like settings!

Our photos are absolutely beautiful. Jen captured the all the joy of the day and all the little details we worked so hard on but, of course, didn't notice during the whirlwind of the reception.

I HIGHLY recommend using Jen for your wedding day photography. The result will be LOTS of smiles, looking back on an amazing version of your special day through the eyes of a truly talented professional.

Artistic-documentary coverage of weddings in Baltimore, Washington and beyond.

Jennifer McMenamin Photography is a boutique, custom studio specializing in artistic-documentary coverage of weddings as well as engagement, maternity, newborn and family portraits. Jennifer brings to her photography an artistic eye, an unobtrusive presence and more than a decade of experience telling people’s stories as a newspaper reporter a nd a photographer. She recognizes the time, care and attention that brides pour into planning the small details of their wedding day – the bouquets, the table cards, the favors – and makes sure to document those details.

She also knows that the most flattering and natural images are captured when couples are simply enjoying their day, unaware that they are being photographed. As such, Jennifer captures genuine moments and produces beautiful pictures that reflect the joy, spontaneity and spirit of her clients and their special occasions.

It’s a job that Jennifer loves -- and one that she takes extremely seriously. She still gets goosebumps listening to a beautiful set of vows or witnessing and documenting the pure, unbridled emotion of a wedding day. Video is nice and family snapshots certainly have their place. But nothing compares to beautifully composed photographs that capture real moments from a
wedding day. Nothing will help you remember how you were feeling at a particular moment in time the way a still shot does. Jennifer is thrilled and humbled every time a pair of clients entrust her with such an important part of their history together.

Her work has appeared on the cover of Baltimore Bride magazine and has been published by Washingtonian Bride & Groom, The Knot and Baltimore magazines, The New York Times weddings section, The Baltimore Sun and the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. She works primarily in the Washington-Baltimore area but is more than happy to travel wherever her work takes her. Jennifer lives in her hometown of Baltimore with her husband, Kevin, a writer, and their daughter.
