Design Aglow's Wedding Week 2015: Meet Jennifer Moher

Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and how you got started in photography.
I was that girl in high school who always brought a disposable camera to every event. I never thought that I would actually persue photography as a career until after my daughter was born and I had a wonderful "ah-ha" moment and realized it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I quickly registered my domain name, bought a camera, googled and you-tubed everything I possibly could, and started shooting weddings the following year!

I currently live in Omemee, Ontario (childhood home of Neil Young! woo!) with my two girls and my amazing photographer boyfriend Hugh Whitaker.



How do you describe your style?
I love to observe people- I always make sure to wear sunglasses when I am out in public so I can watch people without them knowing (That sounds creepier than it actually is). My style is very emotion and moment driven. Even with my posed portraits, I try to encourage my couples to interact so the connection remains between them and does not include me.



What or who really inspires you?
Movies for sure...The ones that have really visually moved me are The Master, A Single Man, Little Children, Drive, Her, and There Will Be Blood.
Travel is also a great source of inspiration. Just being able to get out and see something new pushes my creativity so much further.



What are your top 3 tips for photographing weddings?
1) Take a step back and calmly watch what is happening around you.
2) Stay positive, even when things are not working out the way you thought.
3) Make friends with absolutely everyone.

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
