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.

How To Be A Really, Really Happy Photographer

The formula is simple.

clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer

We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
