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!

Jordan and Chris! Rainy Day Wedding! {Billings Montana Wedding Photographer}

So…..this is my last wedding for this year!  Possibly my last for a while.  Many of you know that I will be taking some time off due to personal reasons.  It has been such an amazing year, and I am so grateful for the beautiful clients who have trusted me with their memories!  I appreciate each and every one of you!

With that said, I want to share some pictures from this special day!  We had rain….we had sun….we had perfection!  All of the elements made this day especially beautiful.  So grateful to have shared it with these fantastic people.  And no more waiting!  Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Kidd!!!
