MEET JEN BRAZEAL
WEDDING + LIFESTYLE
BASED IN TEXAS
Your fiance walks in and you’re sitting in the middle of torn out pages from The Knot and Brides. Pinterest is up on your laptop, your wedding binder (full of samples and checklists) is scattered.
You’re past due on the timeline Martha (from Martha Stewart Weddings) gave you. Photographer Booked, should have been checked off 2 weeks ago!
Whoa, it does not need to be this way. Your wedding will be fantastic and everything will be done before the “I do’s”! I can help, PROMISE.
With over 100 weddings under our belts my team (amazing associates and I) have seen it all. Never once have we seen a wedding not come together beautifully or the bride walk down the aisle in her robe (and we’ve been to a lot of weddings).
Timelines, stunning photos and getting it all together is sort of our niche!
When you make the best decision of your life (ok, maybe the second best, hehe) and invite me to your wedding, you seriously just got a new bestie. I’m going to cry, eat cake, maybe even make a toast (that might be a little far - it might not?). The point is, I’m going to be a part of your day and capture it as a friend would, not a stranger.
I love to start conversations as if we’ve already been talking, I am never introduced with a handshake (I’m all about hugs and totally disregarding your personal space) and when it comes to taking photos, each click means something and tells a story.
Let’s get this relationship going. (After you click through my fun facts below) Fill out my contact form and get in my inbox! I can’t wait to hear from you.
WANT TO KNOW MORE?
I’ve attempted to move to California 2 times (really, bags packed and U-haul coming!) So far, never made it.
Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher, I turned my Easy-Bake-Oven into an overhead projector (I should have been an electrician!)
The biggest bet I ever made, a trip to hawaii, I WON!
My hubby and I are known for only have a few close friends, you can tell this is true from our wedding party. Only 26 of our closest!
I’d choose a good Margarita with lime and salt on the Riverwalk over a 5 star meal in Paris (most likely)
I once spent NYEve in Time square, it was the coldest I’ve been in my whole life (if you don’t count a Thanksgiving I spent in Berlin once!)
My first child was a Brindle Boxer named Caddie
I dream of being a National Geographics Photographer and living in RV when I’m old so we can tour the US and beyond!
MEET THE TEAM
I understand working within limits.
My hubby and I paid for our wedding on our own. We had a lot of family input in the way of advice (gotta love those opinions) but we were forking over the Benjamin’s in the end.
The one thing we look back on and have been able to keep (besides our rings of course) is our wedding album!
We love it, we love that our day was captured in photographs and not only sits in our hearts but also on our coffee table (who am I kidding, I have a 1 year old, that album is on the top shelf these days.)
When working with associates you’ll still be communicating with me (Jen) or my assistant on all things business. We’ll still get your ideas and hopes and dreams. We’ll even help you create your timeline. We do the editing and deliver amazing photos (I mean they are of you).
You will pick and get to know your associate, they will be the one at your wedding sharing tears, cake and dance moves. Learn more about each photographer and get to know them a little more by looking over their galleries and reading about them below!
My kiddos and hubby and I are all pretty country, cowboy hats are a regular accessory in this home! I have only been to two states other than Texas (Oregon and Louisiana) I guess I don’t get out much! I’m great at counting, I should be, I work at a bank on my lunch break I could always go for some good guac and queso!
My family raises chickens. We currently have 10 and are loving all the fresh eggs! Speaking of 10, my husband and I are nearing our 10th anniversary! WHERE has the time gone? We are planning a big getaway and I hope to spend a week or two off the beaten path of Europe. I have the most adorable little boys and I love being a mama!
