With ten years of experience, Los Angeles based photographer Jenna Powers works with her couples to create beautiful images in a natural and unposed style. With a knowledge that beautiful photos come from a place of openness and presence, Jenna Powers prioritises cultivating those qualities with her couples on their wedding day.
What would you like couples to know about your business?
I love the non-traditional, madly in love, and ready to party couples. I invite my couples to prioritize their wedding day experience, because the best photos come from being present. Pulling from my ten years of expertise, I work alongside my couples to help set their day up for celebration rather than posed moments.
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes, I am based in Los Angeles however, accept a limited number of weddings each year where I am required to travel.
How would you describe your style?
In the moment, effortless, and light-hearted.
What is your most memorable career moment?
There’s not one definable moment that stands out, and it's because I've always prioritized being present in my life and with my work. Every wedding day I've shot has been an honor. I've been fortunate to have a career full of great couples with whom I share a similar vision.
Being present with each one of them has created not one definable moment, but a million small ones I wouldn't trade for the world.
What inspires you?
Fashion designers, architects, old interviews with creative greats like David Bowie and David Lynch.
Long road trips with good playlists. Dinner parties with close friends. A good book. A walk in the park at sunrise. Driving through Joshua Tree at sunset. Swimming in an ice cold lake after a long hike.
Being with my person. Seeing others find their person.
How would you describe your working style?
Balanced. I’ll step in when needed, but I’ll often stay back and allow moments to unfold and be as they are.
Do you shoot digitally, on film, or both?
Yes, I love both mediums and use them every wedding day. Both mediums have pros and cons, so I marry two and use both to their advantage.
Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?
Yes, I make customized proposals for each couple. The packages are based on their needs and tailored to their unique celebration.
What is a favourite product or service that you offer and why?
Full weekend coverage. After photographing weddings for many years. I’ve found that the more time I spend with the couple and guests, the more everyone lets their guard down. That vulnerability creates these beautiful, intimate photographs that wouldn't have been captured otherwise.
Where would you love to travel to for work?
Any location with beautiful architecture. Berlin, Copenhagen, and Mexico City come to mind.
Who is your dream client?
Couples focused on having fun, being present, and who enjoy throwing a great party.
What is your advice to couples getting married?
Let go of what doesn’t matter and keep your focus on having fun and feeling the moment. Look closely at your timeline and factor in as much downtime as possible. Unstructured time allows for those unexpected moments.
