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 in Brooklyn, New York 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.
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 2-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.
