WHO WE ARE
I’m Jenni-Kate. I’m an intimate wedding and elopement photographer and the boss babe of Raven and the Willow.
I’m a midwestern girl living the bi-coastal life with the tallest, sweetest, and silliest hubby there is. He also happens to be my second shooter and business partner. We travel the world telling peoples love stories while also searching for perfect lattes, craft cocktails, and yummy food.
My passion is people and their connections to one another. Most of my childhood was spent around adults. I sat through dinner party after dinner party with nothing to do. My favorite thing became finding photo albums in other people houses. I loved them! While the adults chugged martinis I would pour over old polaroids, faded images from the 70s and tattered wedding albums. I loved how they made me feel. Nostalgic for moments I wasn’t even there for. Tangible memories. I later became the girl that carried a camera everywhere she went. (Before everyone had an iPhone)
I’m all about capturing timeless imagery full of feeling and authenticity. The gorgeous and the messy. I am way more inspired by emotion than perfection. Posed stiff photos are not my thing! Let’s avoid awkward, cheesy, and precious. Give me the real stuff.
