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 and a photographer. She recognizes the time, care and attention that couples 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 Weddings magazine and has been published by Washingtonian Bride & Groom, The Knot and Baltimore magazines, Style Me Pretty, The New York Times weddings section and The Baltimore Sun. 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 two daughters, her partner and her partner's two sons. They are all very well photographed!

Jennifer was our photographer for our wedding and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us. Jennifer traveled to NJ for our engagement shoot and for our housewarming/wedding shower. She was also present at our rehearsal dinner. One of my husband's family members actually asked if she was family because she was so kind and present at so many family events! So needless to say Jennifer was extremely kind, flexible, and easy to work with. She took the time to get to know us as clients and assured we would capture all photos we wanted. Jennifer eased our nerves in front of the camera. Her pictures are absolutely beautiful and easy to access. We have joke with Jennifer and call her "our official family photographer" as we plan to work with her in the future again. We highly, highly recommend JenniferSent on 12/26/2018

My husband and I chose to work with Jennifer after looking at her amazing portfolio and meeting with her early on in our wedding planning. We learned about how flexible she is and how she works with her assitant to get all the amazing shots of the special day. We knew we would work well together and we had all the trust in the world that her talent would produce the memories that would last a lifetime. Our wedding day had expected complications like getting access to the military base where we prepared and Jennifer and her assistant worked well with the security access process. I don't know all about the behind-the-scenes issues she may have encountered but I do know that she may have competed with one family photographer. Thankfully there weren't more! I am so glad to know that this did not effect the final product of her photos. She is definitely a professional and rolls with the punches. Thank you for the memories Jennifer!Sent on 12/24/2017
