Vows are promises. Not just to stay together, but to love each other through it all. This commitment is both a joining together of families and a celebration.
Your wedding day is serious, sure. Mixed in with the mimosas, squeals, and happy tears, there may be a little stress and some surprises. But that’s what I’m here for! I'm calm and relaxed and can handle anything a wedding day throws at me.
But also? It’s fun. Like, really, really fun. I promise to capture the classic portraits and romantic moments, but also the joy and the emotions you’ll want to relive over and over. We are going to joke, laugh, and be warned, I will probably cry. Your vows, your speeches, your dances—they get me every time.
We’ll ‘break it down’ together (in all my awkward dancing glory) to get your nerves out. My sweet moves will get you laughing and my very favorite thing to photograph is laughter. It’s so vulnerable. It’s an admission of joy—happiness literally falling out of our bodies. Laughter opens you up and allows me to photograph not just your joy, but your real love and connection.
I’ve done this a time or two hundred. I want you to trust me. I want you to enjoy this day. Be present, have fun, let go. Let me do the rest.
All inclusive collections begin at $5000
Collections with the team begin at $4000
Collections with Jen include a minimum of 8 hours of coverage, a 2nd photographer, engagement session and a viewing gallery of professionally edited images that you can print and download from immediately. I have found that 8 hours is a great starting point and most often sufficient to capture all the important moments. Weddings with mid-day church ceremonies (typically 10-12hrs of coverage) or first looks AND grand exits (typically 9-10 hrs of coverage) may require additional time.
Most JHP clients invest approx. $6500+ in wedding photography collections and $800-1500 after the wedding adding to their wedding album.
Engagement sessions are the perfect way for us to get to know one another. They also give you the opportunity to become pros in front of the camera before wedding day! I encourage all clients to move forward with the included session to work out any camera jitters.
Are you looking for just engagement photos? No problem! I absolutely love photographing couples in love! Feel free to reach out to book your session and we can discuss what you’re looking for!
I believe in the importance of printed photographs! Wedding albums are the BEST way to give your beautiful memories a place in your home. Image telling the story of your wedding day, sitting side by side with your best friend and flipping through those beautiful pages - Its impossible to not be transported back to your day, full of love and emotion. A wedding album is an investment in creating your very own first family heirloom. Each album is a custom designed storytelling book to showcase the best moments of your day. To read more about why I believe including a wedding album in your photography experience is the best decision you'll make, scroll down just a little further.
90% of JHP couples value printed photographs and include Heirloom Wedding Albums in their wedding collections.

You're still here! I'm hoping it's because that means you saw something different. Something special. Honest and intentional photos that gave you #allthefeels. I want to make photos like that for you. Keep reading below to see how it all works.
Nice to meet you:
I've already mentioned how much I love a good story so I want to hear yours! Head over to my contact page and get the conversation started! You can't tell me too much!
Getting to know you:
Your engagement session is where we really get to know each other. It's your opportunity to put wedding planning aside for the day and love on each other while having fun in front of the camera. You can read more above this below!
I love giving my couples the most stress-free process possible. If you need help with anything I am here for you. I provide you with tips, advice, and guidance for a relaxed wedding photography experience. I will also help you create a timeline thats allows us to have the best portrait opportunities while still allowing you to enjoy every moment of your wedding day.
Reliving your day:
It’s no secret that I love wedding albums. I want to help you get those photos off your screens and into your hands. Your photos are meant to be loved, cherished and printed, filling your home with the memories of your day.
I love engagement sessions for so many reasons. I get to know you two before the big day. We talk all things wedding, explore some of your favorite spots, and I get to hear your story. You two get to practice being in front of the camera and I get to see how you interact! It's the little things like the way you look at each other and who kisses who more. These photos reveal how your love looks out in the wild and I love being the one who shows you that!
I will follow you anywhere so let's goooooo! I love when my clients pick the location for their shoot because it's usually something that is meaningful to you—the spot you proposed or where you had your first date or the Italian place you go each week. Maybe your Sunday afternoons are spent walking to the farmer's market or maybe you're even heading out of town soon for your annual vacation and want me to come along? Think outside the box on this one and let's have fun!
If you're still not sure about it, I'm more than happy to send a list of some of my favorite local places. Some of the best ones do require a permit, but I can easily get one and just add it to your final invoice. I will travel anywhere within 50 miles at no extra charge.
Timing & Scheduling:
I schedule engagement sessions 2 times per day; sunrise and 2 hours prior to sunset. LIGHT IS EVERYTHING and since we have the flexibility to schedule around the light for your engagement session we are going to take full advantage!
Travel With Me
Please take me to Italy! Or the ocean. Or the courthouse. Or your backyard. Or just anywhere you’re going. Here is where I’m headed this year. If your location isn’t on this list, email me and I will come to you!
I knew I loved Jen’s pictures and style when looking through her gallery so I was not surprised when we did our engagement session and I LOVED our pictures. I was also not surprised when I saw the first sneak peaks of our wedding and practically screamed with joy. What I was not expecting, however, was what a calming force Jen was during the weeks leading up to our wedding day and throughout the actual day itself. She calmed me down when a Nor’Easter was forecasted for our day and promised me she had shot plenty of weddings in the rain (and they were some of her favorites photos!). She even went out of her way to meet me at our venue the week of the wedding to help scout a photo spot when we were unexpectedly told we could now only use a specific (not ideal) part of the property. She even turned part bouncer when another wedding party walked directly behind us to take their own photos as we were capturing ours (seriously, who does that??). Long story short, I experienced a disaster the morning of my wedding which, admittedly, left me mentally shaken and put me in panic mode the rest of the morning. I didn’t realize it at the time but Jen was my rock. It is so important to click with your photographer and trust him/her. I will be forever grateful we picked Jen. She was incredibly professional, calm, accommodating, fun (!) and of course, extremely talented! I can’t emphasize enough how valuable Jen Harvey is for your wedding day! Thank you, THANK YOU, Jen!

Jen was amazing to work with!! Photography was one of the most important things about the wedding (shorty behind marrying my best friend) and I am beyond ecstatic about all of our photos. She photographed our engagement pictures and wedding. Starting from our very first meeting, she put me at ease and her attention to detail was phenomenal. On our wedding day it began to rain and she kept me calm and collected and adapted to our small changes as if they were our Plan A all along. I could not have asked for a better team on my wedding day. I have gotten so many compliments on my photos and cannot wait for her to photograph more milestones in our life!

Jen is an absolute dream! She went above and beyond for my husband and I from day one and we couldn't of been happier with our decision to have her capture our big day. She was very detail oriented, creative and responsive throughout our whole process. She even met with us for post wedding shots because she knew how important it was to me, and she did it all with a smile. I can't say enough good things about her and her work. If you have the chance to book Jen, jump on the opportunity because you won't regret it!

Jen is so wonderful to work with! From the moment my husband and I met Jen, we felt like we were in the best hands. She is super professional, fun and creative. Jen put me at ease when I was stressed about the possibility of rain, found relatives and made sure we had photos with them, and completely planned our wedding exit photos when we had no idea what to do! We also loved that we were able to see a few sneak peak photos within a week of the wedding! It was so fun to look through them while we were on our honeymoon. Jen was able to capture our day perfectly and we are so grateful. Friends and family constantly tell us how much they love our photos, and it is all thanks to Jen!
