Jennifer Dery

Jennifer Dery is one of those photographers whose images never fail to take our breath away. They are timeless and stunning, yet comfortable and intimate—attributed to over 10 years of experience as a photographer and her knack for capturing all the special little moments that happen over the course of a couple’s wedding day. We’re just crazy about Jen and are thrilled to share some of her story with you today.

While Jen comes from a whole family of photographers, her own love for photography began after discovering a closet full of photos at her grandmothers house as a child. After finding a specific image of her grandparents from their wedding day and feeling the super-heavy paper weight of the image, Jen was sold. She fell in love with the presence and quality of the print and has felt it very important ever since for others to begin their married lives with great documentation of their beginnings together.


We love Jen’s photos because of how well she captures the people at a wedding. She loves photographing all the emotion, and she does it so well. According to Jen, people really let their true selves come out at a wedding, and when they are in this natural state there is a lot of positivity and happiness. We totally agree and think this sense of joy radiates through her images. Can you even handle the image below?!


While her style can be called journalistic, Jen prefers to call it organic. The little occurrences that make the day so sweet are captured and remembered exactly as they were. Her hope is for couples to be able to look through the album with a friend who was unable to attend and have them feel like they were a part of it all after looking through the pages. She takes care of her clients by capturing all the details of the day so that when it’s all said and done, you have the perfect reflection of your beautiful day.



Jen is based out of the San Diego area, but travels for destination weddings as well. If you’re on the hunt for a professional and fantastic photographer to capture your big day, pop on over to her website and drool over the gorgeous weddings captured by Jen that we’ve featured on EAD!
