I am an adventurous and passionate antihero of a photographer. Enchantingly snarky, gently assertive, and unapologetically myself, I give all of my attention and effort to making you feel at home in front of my lens. But… don’t let my strong-willed and villainous exterior fool you. There’s a 99% chance I will cry as you walk down the aisle or share your first kiss.
Chasing sunsets, hiking mountains, or running through salty waves, we can do it all. I want to be there to capture every moment.
Your memories belong to you. Let me help you stop time to celebrate them.

"The images Jen captured were everything I had hoped for. The process was seamless. She has a gift of connecting with her clients on a deeper level and it shows in her photos. She made everyone feel comfortable. Her directions are easy to follow...she knows all the tips and tricks to get a great shot. She was patient when working with our busy 1.5 and 6 year olds, and "aesthetic" when working with our picky teenagers. Most of all, the smiles and laughs she captured were genuine."

"Jen is absolutely AMAZING!!! My wedding photos by her were pure magic! She captured every special moment, even those ones you didn’t know you needed captured! So many great “in the moment” candid shots! She is very professional, on time, personable, and so much fun to be around! She makes you feel at ease too. It was such a great experience having her as our photographer."

"Jen is absolutely AMAZING!! She is so diligent and takes the time to listen to brides. If I could get married again I'd pick Jen to shoot my wedding over and OVER. Also, not to mention she saved my wedding by making sure we were on time without rushing us. It made the day run so smooth. She knew EXACTLY how to handle my vendors and family to ensure that we were always first. I couldn't be more grateful to Jen! She is a true artist and has an eye for photos. She captured our day perfectly!"

"Jen is the most wonderful person and an extremely talented photographer. Her pictures capture authentic moments and her energy makes you comfortable with every photo she takes. I was fortunate to have Jen photograph my intimate elopement and she captured it flawlessly. I am so blessed to have found Jen and to have had her photograph one of the most important moments of my life. She’s the best! Just go to her website and/or her Instagram, the work speaks for itself."

"Jen Bauer is a jewel of a photographer. She really is one of a kind and so talented. We hired her for our wedding and we had the best experience before, during, and after the event. She is incredibly professional, adaptable, and just plain fun to be around! She made us laugh during our portrait sessions and the whole thing felt so natural. If you want an authentic photography experience (and to meet one of the coolest people there is), then Jen Bauer is your girl!"

"Jen is absolutely amazing! She has such great energy and immediately puts you at ease. We used her for our engagement photos and they came out so good! I have gotten so many compliments on them. I am not naturally photogenic and do not know how to pose and Jen was very helpful and instructive and somehow got us to look like we knew what we were doing! The best part is we had SO MUCH FUN! We will definitely be working with her in the future for other shoots. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

"Jen is absolutely amazing.
She is personable, professional, and poised. She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and if you’re like me, you tense up. Jen captures beautiful candid moments and understands the PERFECT moments you’ll want saved forever. Her ability to get the perfect glow of lighting is a true skill that can’t really be taught, she’s just got IT. You won’t be disappointed with Jen."

"Jen made the photo shoot so quick and easy! I liked that she helped us pose in ways that looked so natural. She even made my shy daughter feel so comfortable. She captured lots of genuine smiles and we were so happy with how the pictures turned out. I liked that she sent out a questionnaire prior to the photo shoot so she could really tailor it exactly to the kinds of pictures we wanted. Can’t wait to book her again for next year’s holiday photos!"
