MEET JEN

Hi! My name is Jennifer Lam & I am a wedding & family photographer in Long Island, New York. My favorite thing to do is hang with my little family which includes my two little girls, Madison & Olivia.  My second favorite thing is to photograph love, joy, and laughter. I LOVE capturing the magic of those perfect moments so they can be frozen in time and cherished forever and I’m super excited to get a glimpse into your beautiful life!

Before becoming a photographer, I was a special education teacher. I worked for 5 years teaching kindergarten, first, and second grade. I loved my job and had no intention of doing anything else. After having my first daughter, everything changed. I was no longer okay with letting time pass by undocumented.  I began studying photography on my iPhone during late night feedings and fell head over heels for it. 

Overtime, as I developed my skill, I also developed a passion. I believe that photographs have a remarkable ability to transport us back in time. It's nothing short of magic. I love photographing the sweet glances, the joy, and the quiet moments where we freeze time and simply cherish each other. I also love just being a part of the funnest ( is that a word?) day of your life!  Years from now, I want you to be able to remember, and more importantly, to FEEL the happiness and love that surrounded you. I am SOOO blessed to be able to call this my job and I look forward to telling your love story. So let's be friends.

FUN FACTS

  • I deeply believe in love! I first kissed my husband when I was in junior high! We were married in February of 2014.

  • On the way to your wedding, I guarantee that I will be singing in the car with the radio up as loud as it goes. The playlist will include a selection of romantic "first dance" type songs and super spunky & fun songs bursting with sass! Feel free to message me suggestions!

  • I believe in the love and power of Jesus Christ. I pray every night and so does my 3-year-old. Yea, it is as cute as it sounds.

  • I sing songs from Dr. Seuss' The Lorax all day long- and songs from Frozen.  I apologize in advance if you catch me doing it on a shoot. It's my girls' favorite movies.

  • I am a bit of an over preparer. I will always show up with a second camera and backup lenses, memory cards, batteries, band aids, hangers, etc. just incase. 

  • I could stand to improve my parking skills. Since buying a house with a driveway, my ability to parallel park has slowly been declining.

  • I was in a movie with Adam Levine & Keira Knightley. Ok, so I was only an extra, and not paid, but Adam Levine sang to me and my sister (and about 50 other people) for 3 hours while we filmed and it was one of the coolest days of my life. 

  • Favorite movies include The Butterfly Effect, Erin Brockovich, Legally Blonde, Never Been Kissed, 50 First Dates, Inception, and of course, Ghost & The Notebook.
