About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Your ultimate Wedding Day Bestie, Hype Woman, Biggest Supporter.

I'm a wedding photographer based in Monterey, California and I travel world-wide capturing all people's love stories. I believe in equality, representation, and being kind to everyone. Alright, now that that's said, let's skip to the good part.

⁣I’m a huge comedy lover and will easily choose a comedy show over concert. I’ve seen John Mulaney three times, Jo Koy twice, Seinfeld, and Brian Regan, and also attended ClusterFest in 2019 and got to see my girl crush, Amy Poehler 😍⁣⁣

Tv Shows > Movies. If you reference a well known movie, I might miss it. But if you reference an obscure tv series, I’ll most likely get it and reciprocate. My current fave shows are Arrested Development, Parks & Rec, Schitt's Creek, Kim’s Convenience, IT Crowd, and Seinfeld. But I've also recently been loving Stranger Things, Umbrella Academy, You, and Locke + Key.

⁣HUGE true crime lover. The more messed up it is, the more fascinated I am. I listen to exclusively true crime podcasts and have seen MFM in two live shows. SSDGM! (If you know, you know). Truly, I just love all things "weird" so cults, cryptids, paranormal? Yeah. Let's talk about it.

Give me all of the coffee ☕️ and point me in the direction of your favorite local/small businesses because I love to support fellow small-businesses.

I used to not be able to eat gluten or dairy until one day my body decided it wanted to be a homie and let me, and I still can't eat raw pineapple or now, sadly, oats. Oh, and I’m allergic to dogs, dust, and pollen, so basically "fun." Literally nobody is more annoying than me at a restaurant⁣ so be assured that none of your requests will annoy me either.

HUGE proponent of “no shoes in the house.” I’m part Japanese (on my mom’s side) and that was a strict no-no in our home. Asian mom’s are scary.⁣

I love working out and any kind of movement. Whether it’s a walk, spin class, hike, weight lifting, etc I love it. But I equally love being a potato and binging Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, Apple TV. Gimme all of your recs plz.⁣

I believe in promoting self-love, confidence, body-neutrality, and general badassery into each of my clients. You don't need to always love your body or the way you look because that's just not realistic. But you shouldn't let it hold you back from enjoying life because you're so amazing and so so much more than your weight 💛

Best vendor on my team!

I have worked with Jenn & JeLau Photography several times and I cannot recommend her enough!! I have had her for a solo shoot, engagement pictures and for my wedding. I have to say I love EACH session that she did for me and the pictures and moments that she captures are truly the most precious moments. In my solo session she made me feel confident, comfortable (as it was the first time we worked together) and like I was a model!! (Which I am not!) During our engagement session she made my now husband and I feel so excited for our wedding and this was the perfect chance for him to get to know Jenn and really enjoy our time together in front of the camera. She was able to capture all of our moments this day, the laughs, the tender moments of love, and the passion we have for one another. On our wedding day, she was my GO TO! We had a day of coordinator but I ended up always looking to Jenn for what shots we needed next or what we needed to focus on next. She AGAIN captured the entire range of emotions that day from tears to dance moves. I hold each of the sessions and the photos we have from them so close to my heart. She captured the most tender moments with my daughters in our ceremony that will still make us cry when we look at them. Her work is amazing. Not to mention how fast we got our sneak peek to post on social!! Shockingly fast! I have seen people in my life try to go the “cheap” route and when it comes to these moments, it is not worth it!! It is an investment is your day and making sure you get the absolute best and Jenn delivers!! I would hire her over and over again! I cannot wait until we get pregnant and I can hire her again for our maternity shoot! Lastly, Jenn is an amazing person. She is someone you can talk to openly and she has no judgement. Everyone goes through their own issues with weddings and I felt so comfortable talking through any obstacles we ran into with planning with her. I know this is lengthy but I couldn’t’ type into a few words how great her and her team were for us and how happy I am with our photos! She went above & beyond!!!

Highly Recommend

I booked a proposal session with Jenn. She was lightning in her responses throughout the process, hopped on a zoom call with me to plan out the proposal, and even gave me a video walkthrough of where I needed to be day of (which was super helpful given I live on the otherside of the country). The proposal went perfect and Jenn captured that in her photos. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Jen is kind, funny, and, best of all, an amazing photographer

Jen is an amazing person and photographer. She took absolutely stunning photos during and after my surprise proposal to my fiance, and she made us feel so special and comfortable for the two hours we were with her. Our friends and family couldn't believe how beautiful the photos were -- she's a true artist that's so approachable, friendly, and kind. If you're considering anyone else, stop and book Jen!
