fine wedding photography based in phoenix, arizona

Think of me as your new best friend on your wedding day...

I started photographing weddings because I realized brides deserve to feel relaxed, gorgeous, and happy on their wedding day. You need a photographer that is not only good at taking pretty pictures, but is good with people. After all, the person you choose to be your photographer will be with you more than your fiancĂ© on your wedding day! You need someone who has a calming presence, but also knows how to hang with the groomsmen so they actually enjoy portrait time. (I have 3 boys, trust me, I've got this.) My past brides have said it felt like I was their friend...and that makes my heart so happy! 

I believe in marriage. I believe not only in marriage in general, but in your marriage and legacy of love past, present, and future. Because of this, I am devoted to bringing authenticity and sincerity to classic and joy filled couples by serving them and their future generations through a well told visual story of their beginning chapter, so it can be read again and again.

Jennifer and Ernie 

Ernie and I met our Senior year of high school at a church ski trip. I look at our wedding photos and can't believe what babies we were. We were head over heels in love and ready to take on the world. 

It's been 20 years since we said I do in our sweet backyard wedding, but I love this man more than ever before. He is a hard working master pipe maker, an Oreo lover, and a self proclaimed Lego black belt. He is God fearing, and is the ultimate pancake flipper here at our house.   

Why do I believe in marriage and want to help you have a beautiful start to yours? Because I know that a marriage where a husband and wife honor each other and The Lord, where they allow the good times and hard times to be refining, is sustained by wells much deeper than infatuation and it is a beacon of light to others in a world of chaos and darkness.

A southern girl in AZ

I'm a Southern girl by birth, but I've been a desert dweller for the past 17 years. You probably won't hear me say "y'all" anymore, but I do believe fried okra is a taste of heaven on earth.

MEet the MArkles

I am a Christian, a wife to my high school sweetheart, and a Mama to four loud children. I have 3 blonde boys and 1 blonde baby GIRL! Most days you can find me cooking, cleaning, homeschooling, drinking copious amounts of iced tea, taking long walks with my kiddos and marveling at the beautiful Arizona sunsets.

My philosophy is simple: I want to document your wedding in a way that genuinely reflects your love. Not stiff poses but authentic moments. I'll guide you every step of the way to bring out natural interactions and to ensure you never feel awkward in front of my lens. Not only will you feel great about the process, you'll have timeless portraits full of emotion and joy to pass down for generations. 

I  treat you like family

what makes me different

I believe that your wedding day is so important, but I also believe that your marriage is unquestionably more important. I will give you timeless portraits, taken on the very first day of your journey as husband and wife. Portraits you can show your grandchildren one day.  Portraits that marked the very beginning of your legacy of love. A tangible reminder of the heritage they have...all because of you. 

I  believe in heirlooms.

The Process

Jennifer is very easy to work with and it felt like we were old friends even though I had only met her once before. Our pictures are awesome and I wish I could post every single one of them on my social media!

It felt like we were friends...

I LOVE Jennifer Markle Photography and would definitely recommend her! She did such a great job. First our engagement photos turned out beautifully and then our wedding photos turned out perfectly! I've gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos. The lighting is beautiful and she captured big and small moments. She is the sweetest and so fun to work with! She even made it fun for my (now) husband taking photos! He was not looking forward to a "photoshoot" beforehand and afterwards wouldn't stop saying how much fun he had! Jennifer is very talented and it was nice to relax and trust her judgement on getting the best photos for us! 

I've gotten so many compliments on our photos!

Jennifer provided us with photos we absolutely love and cherish. I felt like every moment that was important to me, she captured. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who wants exceptional photography as well as a positive experience. Weddings can be stressful, but she knew exactly how to make everything flow on the big day. 

I would recommend her in a heartbeat ...
