Jen Petritz Photography – Let's Blog bio picture
  • Hello! I am Jen, and welcome to my world of photography!

    A little bit about me!

    I am a mom, a wife, and a professional...
    I live every day with the energy that it might be the last.

    My favorite color is mustard yellow...
    I am addicted to colored skinny jeans.
    They bring me back to the 80's which is SO AWESOME!
    I make the best darn grilled cheese sandwich on the planet!
    My favorite movie of all time is Rock of Ages...don't laugh!
    I've watched it over 100 times at least!

    I am happiest when my children laugh, and
    I am saddest when my children cry.
    My husband is my best friend.
    My big yellow lab is my protector.

    I sneak chocolate when no one is looking! :)
    Coffee is my guilty pleasure!
    And most of all...I love to laugh!!
    I more importantly love to make others laugh!

    Taking pictures is my passion! I live to make time stand still!

Beautiful Bride, Beautiful Wedding, Beautiful Day! {Colstrip Wedding Photographer}

I typically only take on a few weddings a year, and this one was spur of the moment!  And on top of it, I was extremely sick for the two weeks leading up to it!  Talk about cutting it close! 😮 That being said, I am SO honored to have been a part of this very special occassion.  Sometimes it is just apparent when two people not only love each other, but also enjoy each other!  What a very special couple, with such a perfect family.

I starting putting together this sneak peek, and I couldn’t quit!  There were so many images, I just fell in love with!  Enjoy your sneak peek!

Oh, and THANK YOU, to my wonderful assistant, Molly Schwend! 😮
