I'm Jennifer Tori, the owner & principal photographer of Love by J.Tori Photography. I love being able to share in the love of two individuals and feel blessed to get to work with such wonderful people each day. I love the opportunity to give help preserve all of their intricate details and memories with timeless, romantic, elegance.
I've been an artist ever since I can remember. I graduated from California State University Channel Islands where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art. I took my first black and white film photography class while I was attending high school. I learned not only how to operate a camera, but also how to see. Photography is completely about seeing and feeling. Being able to see light and how it touches everything is the greatest gift I've been given.
I met my biggest mentor when I was only 19. She believed in me and gave me the motivation to become the owner of the fine art portrait and wedding photography businesses that I continue to operate to this day. I truly cherish all the relationships I've made in the wedding and photography industry over the past 10 years and I am so blessed to get to share my talents while being able to have a career that I truly love.
Love by J.Tori has been featured on wedding blogs such as Borrowed and Blue in addition to an upcoming feature with the one and only Magnolia Rouge. J.Tori Photography has been named one of the best portrait photography studios in the country as well as "Best of Ventura County: Photographer" by the readers of the Ventura County Star.

Jennifer is so talented and so much fun to work with! We hired Love by J Tori as our wedding photographer and couldn't be happier with our decision. She is friendly, professional, and very good with communication leading up to the big day. You can definitely tell she has been doing this for a long time and knows exactly what she is doing. While posing and kissing in front of a camera can sometimes look and feel awkward, she makes you feel very comfortable. Our engagement photos were beautiful and we got so many compliments on how amazing they turned out! She also sent us a sneak peek of 10 photos the day after the wedding, and we are dying to see the rest! Thank you Jennifer for being such a pleasure to work with! You were definitely one of the highlights of our special day!Sent on 11/10/2017

Hiring Jennifer as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made.Sent on 10/28/2016
Not only is Jennifer SO talented, but she also went above and beyond as our photographer! The first time we talked on the phone she spent over an hour with me asking multiple questions, making sure she knew exactly what I wanted out of my photos. On top of being so helpful she is friendly as can be and was able to relate to me on every level. She is one of those people who make you feel comfortable, which is so important if you want great photos!
I honestly feel like with Jennifer I have also gained a friend. Even when she was busy taking all of our (GORGEOUS) photos the day of the wedding, she was there for me whenever I needed help. She helped sew my dress when the strap was tearing, she touched up my make up and my hair, bustled my dress for me, and even was able to give a sneak peak of our wedding photos during the reception for all my guests to see! Jennifer understands the importance of details and I appreciate her attentiveness and desire to help whenever it is needed... despite the fact that those things were not in her job description by any means!
Beyond that, Jennifer makes the BEST suggestions. She helped me with the little details of wedding planning and also recommended vendors who I was so impressed with. If I could give Jennifer 10 stars I would... I am so happy with her work, I feel like our wedding photos look like they came straight out of a magazine editorial! I feel so lucky to have found her and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a truly one of a kind, amazing photographer.
Thanks again Jennifer!

We hired Jenni for our engagement photos and she was great. The setting my fiancé chose was the local fair. For me I felt this would be difficult because public romance is not my most comfortable setting especially taking pictures on top of that, but Jenni was able to control the situation and made everyone at ease and the whole event went great. I was extremely happy with Jenni's skill and professionalism.Sent on 08/12/2015
