it's nice to meet you.

I’m so glad you’re here. My name is Jennifer and I am a portrait and wedding photographer based out of Minneapolis, MN. I am 27 and grew up in Minnesota, where I received my BA majoring in Theology and Communications at the College of Saint Benedict|Saint John’s University. Upon graduating, I moved to Durham, NC in the fall of 2013 to pursue graduate studies at Duke University. I graduated from Duke Divinity School with a Master in Theological Studies in the spring of 2015. Both states and schools have provided me with an immense sense of home; I value my educational pursuits greatly and credit much of my identity formation to these places. In late 2015, I moved back to Minnesota and shortly after the new year, moved to south Minneapolis, where I still reside. I now live with five other housemates in an intentional living community. Our home is filled with charm, plants and vegetables of all varieties, and our sweet dog Opie. In the early weeks of January 2017, I signed on to join a studio space in NE Minneapolis, NECO, with seven other incredible lady bosses. It’s been invaluable to now work in that space and be alongside incredible female artists.

I would say I’m easygoing and open-minded. I’m salty and a sucker for witty humor. I think I’m more spontaneous than I actually am. I like to take my mornings slow and I unashamedly love going to bed early. I've become partial to whiskey and love dark chocolate covered almonds. Also tacos. Always tacos. I’m an avid reader and podcast-listener. On Being and MPR are my go-to companions while driving (plus the frequent jam-out session, but that goes without saying). I’m infinitely curious and awe-filled. I marvel at the magic of the everyday and that golden honey evening light. I’m fascinated by the study of theology and religion. I’m drawn to the eclectic and the different, the folks who are hustling and trying damn hard to live into their questions and what makes them tick.

And I’m an INFP, if you’re into that kind of thing.
