Hi, I'm Jen Bauer!

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.

San Diego photographer who loves posing, candid phots, nature, and people

"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."
