Jennifer Eileen Photography

I’m a girl who loves road trips, friendships, and laughter.  Coffee, chocolate and baking cakes from scratch bring me joy.  To my eye, wildflowers sprinkling the rolling foothills are one of the most beautiful things in the world.  These things may make me seem ordinary but these things make me who I am. Life is good, it’s short, and I want to make it sweet.

I am Jen;  a photographer, a dreamer, a laugher, and a giver.

Let’s do lunch.

Maternity Leave | Little Lacey is late but will get here soon!

I was due on May 5, 2013.  It’s now May 9th and my husbands birthday is in two days and this little one doesn’t seem to want to let us know who they are just yet!  Percy and I decided not to find out what we were having so we switch back and forth from […]

 

I was due on May 5, 2013.  It’s now May 9th and my husbands birthday is in two days and this little one doesn’t seem to want to let us know who they are just yet!  Percy and I decided not to find out what we were having so we switch back and forth from calling the babe he and she.  We would LOVE to know who we’ve been talking to for the past ten months.  But all in due time I guess.

While we wait for the wee ones arrival I will be taking some time off from work.  Please e-mail me or leave me a message but know that I’ll get back to you when the time is right.  My priority is first to my husband and to our child, work is going to have to wait for a bit.  I imagine that once I’m back into the swing of things I’ll be shooting a lot more newborns because I just know I’ll be enamored with my own sweet babe and capturing all those tiny wrinkles and sweet, gassy smiles.

Percy and I will post some sort of picture I am sure once Little Lacey arrives, but until then may your days be quite enjoyable!

Kevin & Lyndi had a fantastic wedding out in the Madera countryside at Appellation California Winery.  The day was filled with laughter (my favorite kind of day) and everything was beautiful!  I loved Lyndi’s color choices, the blush gave the whole wedding a soft, intimate feel and the ladies looked stunning in their soft pink dresses.  I also loved the guys suits.  So dapper and dashing… but don’t let those suits fool you, those guys are full of energy and I imagine trouble.  Who knows, I could be wrong. :)

I loved the details especially the heart shaped glasses that the wedding party wore and the luggage tags for guests to sign!  The dress and shoes, oh her shoes!, were stunning.  And the dessert table was to die for!  There was a slight vintage flare with the use of chandeliers at the ceremony and on the tables at the reception.  Those along with the large twinkle lights overhead gave the evening a romantic feel.

Kevin & Lyndi, you two are so wonderful and I loved being a part of your wedding day!  Congratulations on your new puppy and maybe one day, not in the far off distant future, I can say congratulations on your baby!  How fun would that be. :)  Ha!

One thing that I love about my job is sending my clients different Questionnaires.  I get to have a tiny bit of insight to them at the beginning of our relationship.  It’s also fun to look back and see what they said, what their vision was, and to compare what actually came of their wedding day from the visions they shared with me!

In the questionnaire Natasa was described as fun, vibrant, enthusiastic, funny, and detail-oriented.   So true!  She’s also caring, loving, gentle and strong.  I wish I had the words written by the couple about Chris!  Because that would be interesting.  I had nothing to prepare myself for this guy.  He is goofy, fun loving, he has a serious side and at first he can be intimidating even though he’s really not!  On the wedding day he was so relaxed and, surrounded by his groomsmen, was in his element.  Such a funny, imaginative group!

Natasa & Chris were able pull off their wedding vision.  Wanting a romantic feel, Natasa used cream, blush, and sage green to pull off the feel.  Along with the use of tons of gorgeous flowers everything was soft and lovely.

Natasa looked gorgeous on the wedding day (not like she doesn’t look gorgeous every day of her life!).  She just glowed the whole day long.  And Chris didn’t look to shabby himself… so dapper in his black tux.  Let’s just be honest thought Chris, Natasa stole the show. :)

It was a brilliant day, full of surprises, joy, laughs, and a ton of dancing!  Thank you c&n for having me photograph your wedding.  You two are absolutely wonderful!  I hope to cross paths with you again one day while walking through the streets of San Francisco.  May you have MANY brilliant years together and grow to love each other more deeply as each day passes.

Again, thanks to Rachel McNamara this wedding day was pulled off with no problems!  I am so thankful for talented photographers who give their time and support.  You’re brilliant Rachel!

Chad & Cori’s vibrant wedding | Clovis, CA

Cori and Chad Wedding Photographed by Jennifer Eileen

I love this wedding for multiple reasons.  First and foremost, the couple won me over at hello!  Chad & Cori are the kindest, sweetest, friendliest, cutest, etc, etc, etc couple ever!  I am thankful for couples such as these.  But let’s not focus on how much I love and appreciate them, instead let me share with you some of the sweet moments from their wedding day!

Here’s some things that I LOVED… first and foremost, the location!  Are you kidding me?  A historic, bright yellow, ranch home overlooking the fields of Clovis.  It was breathtaking and dreamy, perfectly Cori.  Such an excellent backdrop.

I loved hearing Cori’s laughter with her maids.  Her joy is contagious and anyone near her could feel her excitement!  And Chad with his guys, priceless.  They were a goofy bunch and so easy to work with!  A favorite moment, when Chad sent his best man up for a photo shoot with Cori.  Let me back up, the plan was for c&c to have their picture taken before the ceremony but to never see one another so they stood on either side of a pocket door.  What ended up happening was the best man holding Cori’s hand, her eyes were full of joy, his were full of the thought of cooties, and then he stepped from around the door to face her.  She screamed and was horrified!  Everyone had a HUGE laugh.  It was awesome.  Don’t worry, we did have the real pocket door moment with the bride and groom.  :)

Cori’s hair, makeup, and dress were absolutely beautiful!  She had a fantastic team (Ali Hines did her hair, Dara perfected her makeup, and the dress came from Madeleine’s in Clovis)!  I wish my hair looked as fabulous as hers on my wedding day. ;)

I loved their candy table, the books, birds and flowers that adorned the tables, the band that played for the reception (one of Cori’s dreams and must haves for her big day), the engagement pictures that we took all over the place, and the multiple signs telling about their life and journey.  It was a perfect day and we made sure to end it with a sparkler exit.

I want to also say a HUGE thank you to Rachel McNamara for assisting me on this magnificent day!  Without her I don’t know how I would have been able to capture all of those lovely details and special moments.
