PHOTOGRAPHING boutique WEDDINGS, GROWING FAMILIES, and boss moms

Your Vancouver Island Wedding, Family
& Branding Photographer with 10+
Years of Photography Experience.

No matter where you are getting married, no distance is too far. Whistler, Mission, Downtown Vancouver, or on Vancouver Island where I live, I want to be there with you. No matter where you're tying the knot, let's make it happen.

Already tied the knot? I love families and children. When I'm not behind the camera I'm in front of a classroom - working with children is my passion! Have your own business and need content for your social media and website? I'm your lady. Photographing all your milestones is what makes my heart sing. I can't wait to chat more about it over coffee or zoom! 

When was the last time you had your photo take and loved them?

Welcome to
Family Archive Photography

I know you have a lot of options when it comes to wedding and family photographers, so I very much appreciate you being here! I have my BFA in Visual Fine Arts (SFU 2010) as well as a BEd (SFU 2011). This means I'm trained in composition, lighting and have worked with thousands of children, teens and adults over my teaching career.

As an award-winning, nine-time published photographer, you can trust that you are going to get truly spectacular images backed up by training and years of education. I truly love & cherish each event and all the details & emotions that come along with them. Not only will I help you organize your family photos or wedding event, you can trust that I know how to engage, direct, and teach you everything you need to know to get the best possible photos. Branding sessions include a full look at your messaging and how to maximize your ROI during your free consultation.

I take the stress out of your session planning by helping with wardrobe, timeline planning (don't forget about those nap times!), and what to do with your beautiful photos once you get them back after they've been expertly edited! During your session I help with how to move in front of the camera, provide prompts for those not as comfortable having their photos done, and get little ones to open up REAL quick. The end result is photos that you will truly love that will last a lifetime (or two)!

Custom Heirloom artwork

Together we are creating, curating, and bringing your images to life with heirloom archive quality prints, canvas and albums. Look, touch and see your photos, in your home, as art on your walls that mark the milestones of your family's story. I take the stress worry and confusion out of printing your images, providing you with the highest quality and convenient options for your time and investment. When taking the time to book a session, keep in mind that we wont be leaving your photos on your phone or computer, but instead bringing them to life and preserving them for your family for years to come. Each session comes with a pre-planning consultation, wardrobe curation, in-home or Zoom ordering session and delivery of your stunning new artwork. 

That your family will love for years to come

Meet Jennifer

I'm a mom of two beautiful girls, a high school photography and art teacher, and a full-time photographer. I love everything to do with family, art, and running my own business. Photography lets me merge all of my favourite passions. From the time I could hold a paint brush I have been creating, and with photography I get to paint with light. Each session is treated like a work of art that is wall-worthy. Nothing makes me happier then meeting new families, couples and fellow entrepreneurs that value a family experience.

"My partner and I had a shoot with Jenn a few weekends ago and it was perfect! Before we even had the shoot her communication was outstanding, she gave us great outfit guidelines which had an amazing impact on our photos. (Seriously, take the wardrobe advice - it'll make all the difference!). The gallery for receiving and viewing our photos was also excellent, easy to maneuver and order from. She was vibrant, attentive and had a keen eye for details. Highly recommend!

"We had Jenn for our first couple photography session and I can’t say enough good things about her! I’m very awkward in front of the camera, but she made sure I felt relaxed and comfortable, her instructions were so easy to follow. She’s not only a professional, reliable photographer but a genuinely nice, fun person. Our pictures turned out beautiful, love her natural editing style. I’ll definitely hire her in the future for our engagement and wedding pictures."

“Jenn is seriously the best at what she does! She has taken our photos two years in a row now and it is something that we all look forward to - even my hubby. She has a way of making you feel relaxed in front of the camera so it's like you're having a visit with a great friend but you get some awesome photos out of the deal. I would recommend Jenn 100 times over to anybody and look forward to seeing her passion grow!”

I had my photos done by Jenn and she has amazing passion and energy for what she does. I had a few shoots with her already because I love her work and the experience so much. Each time she brings her all! I am shy at times around the camera but she just makes me feel so confident. Her photos and editing are beautiful. Thank you so much Jenn!

I hired Jennifer photograph for some headshots. Not only did she do an amazing job, she made the whole process simple.I was a little nervous for the shoot, as the pictures meant a lot to me. The best thing she did was simplify things for me and allow me to be relaxed. Jennifer coached me through the whole process and even had some suggestions to help me be myself for the photos.  It helped, and it showed in the end results. It was very convenient to book a time with her and she also had a few different options for locations where we could do the shoot. I highly recommend Family Archive.
