Hi, I’m Jenny! I’m a wedding photographer from NY who now lives in the Bay Area and I used to be a scientist (Say what?? Find out more about my story here!) Thank you for taking a moment to check out my profile. My husband and love of my life, George, is my second photographer and partner in crime. We are a super duo husband and wife team who are fun, laid-back, and really good at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We love working with couples who are also fun, laid-back, and aren’t looking for just another conventional wedding photographer. We also work really well with more reserved couples who are a little freaked out about having their photos taken. (While we are fun individuals, we’re introverts by nature and are far from being “in your face loud people”.)

Random fun fact: we’re also somewhat dorky… and by somewhat, I mean very!

In being scientists, we’re also practical, organized people. We just can’t help it, it’s in our blood! We have ways to help you schedule your day so everything will run super smoothly. We’ve also gone through the wedding planning process ourselves and know how overwhelming it can be. Our goal is to make sure your experience is easy, stress free, and FUN. We don’t want photography to be just “another thing” you have to plan for and do on your wedding day.

Okay, enough about us, let’s talk about my style! My photos are unique in that I like warm, vibrant colors; a bit different than the overly desaturated look that's popular nowadays (totally not putting that look down though!). I also like playing with light so you’ll see a lot of dramatically lit images in my portfolio; I particularly love sunset shots! (Oh sweet sunny goodness. Like a photo-hungry werewolf, I get a bit excited when the sun starts to go down). I’m a stickler for sharpness (no fuzzy photos here!) and perfect lighting.

I strive for less posey, more natural, youniquely-you looking photos but the degree in which I direct you is catered to your comfort level (everyone is different!) I am unobtrusive and want to capture your event as it unfolds. (Nothing like a photographer standing right in front of you at your ceremony or stopping your first dance to get that classic “Okay, now look at me!” shot, bleah.) Along those lines, I love candids and unexpected moments so I’ll go out of my way to catch them (except for that one elusive guest that always seems to notice the camera, darn you!). I love goofy photos; you’ll probably notice a lot of that in my portfolio. 😉 If our silly brain waves collide, together we can create sweet beautiful ridiculousness.

Lastly, you probably notice that our subjects look happy. That’s because they are! Our first and foremost goal is to make you happy. Again, Geo and I are chill individuals. Couples we’ve worked with tell us that despite how nervous they were before a session, they felt completely at ease with us and had a lot of fun. We’re also super flexible. I want to work with you to deliver what you want. Have a specific look or theme you’re going for? Have “must have” or “absolute no no” shots? My packages don’t match what you’re looking for? Please, let’s talk about it!

Summed up, I want you to LOVE your photos, see yourselves in them, and for you to walk away remembering how much fun you had taking them!

If you think we sound like a good match (you know you do!) and you’d like to find out more information shoot me an email, text, or give me a call! You can also check out my contact page. Geo and I love meeting new people face to face so let’s meet up and grab a coffee or bubble tea! (Random fun fact: I’m a little obsessed with bubble tea, and by a little, I mean a lot). For lots more photo goodness, take a look at my website.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I love weddings of all kinds and people of all kinds! Every person is unique and so is your wedding! My goal is to capture YOU in your photos and your day as it was and not to mold you into a stylized cookie cutter template. I don’t want you to look at your photos and just say “that’s nice”, but to proclaim “oh that’s SO us!”. My style is different from the what’s popular nowadays in that the photos are sharp, and have bright-warm-vivid colors.

To sum up what’s in my description above (without writing another book :P), I love natural looking shots, candids, warm vivid colors, details, silly photos, beautiful lighting, sharpness and so much more. Above all, I want you to love your photos, see yourselves in them, and enjoy your time with us.

With all of my packages you get a second photographer (ma husband, Geo 😉 ) and all of your photos in the highest resolution quality without any watermarks/logos. You can do whatever you want with them! On average I deliver ~1000 photos for 8 hours of coverage. I also offer albums to those who want them.
Please check out my website and current work for the most up to date photo goodness.

“Working with Jennifer was amazing. Professional, responsive and just an awesome person to work with!!! As a photographer, she has an incredible gift for capturing personalities and the essence and feeling of the moment. We will cherish our photos forever and are so glad we chose Jenny<3 DeePhotography. We keep looking at our photos!!! AMAZING!!”- Karin

“I was so glad when I met one of the best photographers in the Bay Area! We immediately felt like friends after the first meeting. They were very professional and personable. Jenny and Geo both explained and guided us through the process of wedding photography. They also covered every aspect of wedding photography and made it easy for us during the whole planning process.
I love candid shots and they were able to take a ton of beautiful pictures throughout the day. Everyone at the wedding felt comfortable with Jenny and Geo. It felt like friends that were there taking pictures and were not intrusive during the ceremony. The photographs were more than we expected and every photo was beautifully taken and edited. Jenny was able to get us our pictures online and via usb very fast.
Jenny is one of the most easy going and personable photographers I have met. The moments she captures are beautiful and not heavily edited. If you want a rad photographer with a great personality look no further.” – Alex

“My husband and I booked Jenny and Geo for both our engagement shoot and our wedding photography. They were a real pleasure to work with: professional, courteous and punctual (they arrive early–all the time!). We loved how they captured the vibrant colors of our outdoor venue, and that they reminded us to take some silly photos along with the serious ones. From our first consultation on Skype to our wedding day, Jenny was helpful and responsive. On the big day, she and Geo hovered behind the scenes capturing every special moment. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” -Karen

If you mention that you found me on Offbeat Bride, you will get a complementary mini-engagement shoot or 1 additional hour of coverage!

  • Here is a wedding shot in Carmel that’s a favorite of mine. The bride really likes octopuses. I mean LOVES them. Everything was octopus themed and it was awesome. Also, we took awesome photos in front of some whale bones. Whale bones. Lauren and David
  • Another favorite! Take a look at this gorgeous victorian-esc wedding shot at the Berkeley City Club! These two met and have lived in Berkeley since meeting, so it’s an extra special place for them. They incorporated locations, local vendors, food, and artists from Berkeley into their wedding. Grace and Joey
  • This was one of the first weddings I photographed when I started out in Rochester, NY. It’s still one of my favorites! Rebecca and Heather
