Welcome, friend! Ready for an adventure?

Whether you’re a parent booking the family trip of a lifetime, a senior preparing to begin a new journey, or a couple simply celebrating another day beside the love of your life, I can’t wait to tell your story! And through adventure photography, we can do it in a uniquely powerful way!

I believe with every corner of my puppy-loving soul that photo sessions don’t have to be stiff and awkward. You can star in the kind of spectacular photography you’ve always admired and have a freaking blast every step of the way! To achieve this, I focus on a celebration of the natural: natural colors, natural beauty, natural connection. I simply create a space under the wide-open sky where you can truly come alive. So, explore my info page here, dive into my Glacier National Park experience here, or simply say hello to begin the adventure here! Pack your bags, tug on your hiking boots, and let’s tell your story through photos you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

A behind-the-scenes look at working with me!

Spontaneous, silly & sincere photography

Hi, I'm Jenn!

Dog lover. Friends rewatcher. Messy bun rocker.

And your new favorite photographer! As a Pacific Northwest native, the dynamic landscapes and moody weather are as imprinted on my soul as my obsession with Grey’s Anatomy. So, when I decided to pursue photography as a career, I knew that I wanted to take my clients outside -- away from the ordinary and into the wild! I knew I wanted to chase motion and emotion to deliver mind-blowing photos through a relaxed, real experience. I wanted to reframe the way people think about photography! So, get ready to see my mile-wide smile peeking out from behind my camera as we tell your story in an unbelievably unique way!

The Experience:

Inspired by breathtaking landscapes and dynamic emotions, I create art that is adventurous, genuine, and unforgettable. So, why the heck should the experience of stepping in front of my camera be anything less! Through the years, I’ve boldly crafted a signature photo experience that is as unique as the galleries I create. And now I can’t wait to pull back the curtain to give you a peek behind the scenes at what makes that experience so special! Let’s begin the journey…

I. Book WITH ME.

Elopements/Initmate Weddings: Reach out to me about 9-12 months before your planned date, give me some details on what you're vision is for your day, and give me 24-48 hours to get back to you with my availability!

Portraits: About four to five months before your desired session date, simply send an inquiry form my way, sharing a bit about the photo session you’d like to plan! Then, I’ll be in touch ASAP to continue the conversation and help you choose the session that’s right for you!

II. plan your trip.

After filling out your booking form, returning your signed contract, and paying your non-refundable retainer, the adventure really begins! I’ll always help you select the ideal location and wardrobe for your session. And if you’re traveling in from out of town, I’ll even share some of my favorite local hotels, restaurants, and more to ensure you have a fantastic trip!

III. enjoy the adventure.

Leading up to your elopement or session, I’ll check in to make sure you’re feeling confident and ready to go and answer any final questions you have. This way, you’ll show up on your day filled with excitement and joy! Together, we will explore your location, sometimes visiting stunning sites known only to locals. And you’ll even get to sneak a peek at the back of the camera as we go! 

IV. relive the moments.

When I get home from your elopement or session, I’ll immediately begin editing to ensure my famous quick turnaround time! And a few weeks after your session and 4-6 weeks after your elopement, I’ll send you an email containing your gallery so you can relive your once-in-a-lifetime adventure! 


What an absolutely amazing experience! Jennifer eased any anxiety I had leading up to the big day and the day of! During the shoot it felt like talking to a good friend I hadn't seen in a long time, so I felt so comfortable. My fiance and I are nervous in front of a camera and she helped us every step of the way! I have never seen such beautiful photos! I'm so thankful I found Jennifer!"

Jenn is SO AWESOME! She photographed our June elopement in Glacier National Park and made the entire process so easy/laidback. she made sure we were getting everything we needed for our elopement without making it stressful for us. She is great at highlighting the natural beauty of the scenery. Overall, we loved working with Jenn and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you for making our elopement the best day ever.

I cannot recommend Jennifer Vernarsky Photography enough! Especially if you are planning a vacation around Glacier National Park in Montana! She is extremely professional, communicates very well, and is beyond knowledgeable about Glacier Park/the best locations for portraits. Not to mention my kids absolutely adored her! But above all else, the pictures she captured for our family are priceless and I have no doubt we will treasure them forever <3. Thank you again for the wonderful session and beautiful memories!!!!!!
