I am Jenny Markham, an international wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Orange County, CA and serving worldwide.
Ever since I was a child, I have experimented with different mediums in order to express myself and capture beauty, but nothing seemed to inspire me. Then one day, my father, an artist and painter himself, gifted me his own father’s 35mm Canon AE-1, and from the first moment I peeked through the viewfinder and heard the sound of the shutter click, I fell in love.
Over a decade later, photography has become my life’s passion and I have since traveled around the world capturing weddings and documenting life through my images. My style can be described as film-inspired yet modern, minimalist, feminine, intimate, and natural.
I strive to capture authentic and natural moments between my couples. I want to get to know them and their love story so I can better document that unique intimacy. Photography isn’t simply a job for me, I also seek to foster friendship and trust between us in order to better document all the moments you want to cherish forever, and I am privileged to be allowed into such a special part of your lives.
A little more about me: I am a huge introvert with a love for stationery, am always craving burritos, and need music playing at all times. My car is always packed and ready for last-minute camping trips and adventures, and I thrive on hosting dinner parties, making people laugh, and inspiring people to live a life of intention and passion. If I’m not taking photos you can usually find me cooking a new creation in the kitchen, enjoying nature, or thrifting vintage finds.
"We are so glad that we chose Jenny to take photos on our big day! Even from our first consultation, she made us feel at ease with her experience and organization. She was always quick with communication and helped us put together a package that we felt good about. By the time the wedding came around, having Jenny there felt like having an old friend with us taking pictures of the day. My husband and I aren't necessarily the type to pose, and Jenny helped guide us through our photos and put us at ease. Everything turned out amazingly! She turned the photos around to me so quickly, and they really are breathtaking. We would book Jenny over and over if we could!" - Jamie
"Jenny did a great job with our wedding pictures, we really love them! Also, she has a very sweet presence and made everyone feel at ease which was important to me. Thank you Jenny!" - Lilia
"I found the process of scheduling a date and location to be a breeze, and you went the extra step to make sure I was happy with everything I was paying for. I was impressed with the mix of professionalism friendliness, and I had so much fun during my session. You made Jeffrey and I feel really comfortable in front of the camera, and and now we have beautiful pictures that I can keep forever! I would definitely recommend you to a friend. In fact my mother has seen the pictures and now wants to do a full family photo session!" - Sydnie
I love how comfortable she made us feel. We were dancing around our living room, cracking up laughing and making coffee. We had such a great time and absolutely LOVED our photos. We looked so natural and really in our element in our photos! My cheeks still hurt from smiling so much! I would highly recommend Jenny for any of your photography needs! She is very talented and has a great eye! - Rachel
