Meet Jennifer Green! She is another outstanding Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer in the Adore family!
How did you get started in this business?
I actually got started in the business shooting concerts. It was a hobby, turned passion, turned business. About five years ago I transitioned to a wedding focus.
What brought you to the Lehigh Valley?
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Allentown. I lasted one year away before coming home!
What is one of your hobbies?
I travel a fair amount. I also make customized Funko Pops. It’s a fun hands-on creative hobby.
What song/music is in heavy rotation for you right now?
The Love, Simon soundtrack is big in my rotation right now! Along with nearly any Broadway musical soundtrack and a recent re-dive into Michael Malarkey’s Mongels album.
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
My favorite part of a wedding is that first little moment my couple gets to spend one on one. I think there is something so very special in that moment when they get to let down and just relax for a minute.
What is your favorite restaurant to eat at in the Lehigh Valley? Your favorite dish to order?
The Shelby is hands down my favorite restaurant in the Valley and I almost always order The Shelby Garden Salad with grilled chicken!
What is your favorite movie and/or book genre?
Right now I’m smack in the middle of the Crazy Rich Asians trio in terms of reading. I would have to say my favorite movie is either Wonder Woman or Love, Simon.
What is your fondest wedding memory-either from your wedding, if you are married, or from a wedding you attended?
My favorite memory is actually from my sister’s wedding. My brother walked her down the aisle. Our father passed 10 years ago so it was something very special.
What does the perfect day look like to you?
I love traveling to New York City whenever possible, having a meal at an off the path restaurant, and catching a broadway show via lottery.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Relax, and watch Netflix with my dogs.
What is your favorite season and why?
Spring, I love spring. I love watching the green come to life.
What is your best advice for a couple planning their wedding?
Trust your vendors. Hire people you love; people who you could see becoming your life long friends. Then let them help you throughout the process.
What are some of your favorite aspects of your business?
I just love connecting with people. I love creating art that resonates with my clients.
What is a common mistake you see couples make while planning a wedding?
Micromanaging and not trusting the vendors they hire enough. Put the work in up front to pick the perfect vendors, get on the same page from day one, and trust them to make the magic.
Do you have an embarrassing wedding moment? That happened to you/or that you observed?
I have, twice now, just completely wiped out, fallen down, for no particular reason. It’s always a little tricky when you’ve got two cameras on you to make that look graceful.
What do you wish couples knew about your part of the wedding industry?
That good wedding photography takes time. Work with your photographer on timelines, and let us help you make sure that everything goes smoothly.
What is the best way for a couple to prepare to meet with you?
Come prepared with questions and let your personality shine through! I’m an open book and happy to answer any and all questions and you’ll definitely learn a bit about my personality too. I want us to be friends at the end of it!
