Nashville Wedding Vendor Spotlight: jHenderson Studios
Monday, March 15, 2010
Finding a photographer for your wedding is a daunting task. It can feel absolutely overwhelming at times. However, every so often you stumble across a photographer whose work is stunningly beautiful, such is the case with Jenna Brie of jHenderson Studios.
Jenna manages to capture the love between the bride and groom in a non-stylized but oh-so-natural way. After looking at her work, I'd love for her to just follow me around and capture all the sweet, candid moments in my life. I think you'll feel the same after seeing her work and reading what she has to say.
Vendor Spotlight: jHenderson Studios
How did you get started in weddings?
When I began working in photography, I knew right away wedding were for me! A friend was getting married about the same time, and that was my way in.
What do you like most about weddings?
I love the beauty of the drama of it all. There is just so much going on, emotions are on edge, people are always moving & interacting…it’s such a spectacle.
What’s your favorite wedding pic/video and why?
I can’t pick a favorite! It would be like picking a favorite child. Any of the ones in my wedding gallery on my website would be right up there.
What is your service philosophy?
I try to make my clients feel like they’re my only client, even though I shoot 20 or so weddings a year. I also like to make friends with my clients…it makes everything seem less like work.
What are your strengths compared to others in your category? Why should a bride hire you?
My strength is my personality. I have the right balance between being assertive enough to orchestrate a large number of people and laid back enough to not sweat the small stuff. Plus, I always work my tail off for my clients! I’ll do what it takes to get the shot!
Who are your favorite Nashville wedding vendors – helpfulness, professionalism, style?
Ashley’s Bride Guide, of course! I’m also a HUGE fan of the gals over at CJ’s Off the Square…And have you had a cake from The Bake Shoppe yet? If not, it’s about time.
Who do you recommend when you’re not available/not a fit?
I usually refer folks to Ashley’s Bride Guide first! I know only top quality vendors are listed here.
What do you read/watch regularly to stay on top of wedding/event trends?
Southern Wedding Magazine & blog is my very favorite! They always show off the most gorgeous and wonderful weddings. I also love Snippet & Ink and Style Me Pretty.
