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.

When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.

There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.
