Jen Bierman began her wide-ranging professional photography career over fourteen years ago. First in the fashion industry, then quickly evolving to the art of wedding photography. She found a heartwarming reward from becoming a special part of a couple’s most important day then recording the comparable events that follow such as pregnancy, newborn and children as they grow. Jen states, “Being able to document these life fleeting moments in photos gives me great honor”.
Jen’s experience has developed an uncanny style of work that captures every detail, the smallest of decisions and creative aspects of the wedding day. This approach assures the bride and groom peace of mind knowing they can enjoy their day and still never miss any part of it with her photographs. “My philosophy is to be everywhere but nowhere.” Jen thrives on getting ‘the shot’ unobtrusively and finding the beauty in what she calls “the in-between”. Taking on no more than 40 weddings per year secures each couple to have Jen personally review their images, design each album and be there to work one on one through the entire process. She likes to refer to them as her “40 babies per year!”
Italy, Hawaii, Jamaica, and Cancun are just a few places Jen’s work has taken her. Shooting at some of the world’s most amazing destinations has given Jen the ability to adapt to any location. Destination weddings don’t end after the big day.She loves to spend the following afternoon with the newlyweds as her own gift to them capturing their new bond with the essence of their chosen locale.
Born and raised in Laguna, California, the beach lifestyle has always been elemental throughout Jen’s life. Years of taking in the sun and exploring hidden coves have developed into Jen’s many ‘secret spots’ she visits with her clientele. However, her latest love is of the local mountains surrounding her second home in Big Bear, California. Snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking in the summer keeps her constantly scouting for new canvases. “When my clients make the drive up the mountain, I can share with them a whole new world of scenery for their photographs right in my own backyard.” Getting personal with her clients has grown Jen’s clientele each year along with her loyal couples and families that continue to have her document their lives over the years. Jen brings a sense of fun and ease to each shoot that is contagious to even the most camera-shy.She is well known for her personality which makes everyone involved feel comfortable, make children giggle and keep each click enjoyable.
