"In 2017 I traveled to Venice for the first time - it now is my favorite place I’ve ever been. There are no few words to sum up Venice - it is an atmosphere, it is an impression, it is romance on every corner, it’s timeless and one of a kind. It’s like going back in time, but present in the future. She’s been through so much story, yet stood the test of time. Built to connect Islands through water canals - you can't help but fall in love with this city and it’s endless allure. There’s no better name, to show the most incredible photography experience we have to offer you!"
When I showed up in Florence I could have stayed in the city center forever inspired - looking in awe at the classic Duomo, hearing the bells toll every hour, and people watch as I sat there enjoying a glass of wine with my family. Called the “City of Dreams” Florence is a time capsule of classic art, Italian Cuisine & incredible views at every turn. Being the heart of the world’s artistic treasures there is no better name for our most popular photography experience!
"When I visited Italy I stayed on a hilltop called “Montecatini Alto” - this was the panorama of the Italian Tuscan dream. The bells every morning, the warm sun that kissed every vineyard and every olive tree. The glorious sunsets and the restaurants overlooking the hilltop. The humor and charm of our waiter. When remembering my travel memories, Tuscany seemed like a fitting name for the introductory collection to the Jennifer Mooney Wedding Experience. Because even though it’s just a glimpse of Italy - it’s still everything we dream!"
Every Montana Experience Includes
I care. I care about you, your day, the behind the scenes details. I know that what makes great memories and stories is having someone by your side who cares, goes above and beyond and puts you first, making you the star. In a world, where everything is becoming impersonal – I am personal and innovative. My business has been built on providing my clients with the quality and excellence I myself want to experience. My passion is to add to the beauty of the world and leave it better than when I began. So my process with my clients (you) is to make sure that I get to know you prior to your wedding day, and be able to tell your story, and connection, while making you feel comfortable and look stunning!
Because love brings out the best in us and the best of everything in the world. 10 years ago, I photographed my first wedding as a bridesmaid for my brothers wedding in a 20,000 squarefoot Italian Mansion at a California winery overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area. Music was playing so the whole house could hear as the entire family was busily getting the wedding ready. Then Sting's "Desert Rose" came on - it was a moment that escalated into a momentum of passion wrapped up inside me. It was this experience that in truth brought out something amazing & inspiring in me. I was still in photography school and went back and changed the direction of my photography path. I thought I was going to travel, write a book & become a documentary photographer. I have been a wedding photographer ever since!
My parents - I love that my school was a life of experiencing. I was homeschooled, it’s a very valuable part to how I see the world and how I approach it. My parents raised my siblings & I very out of the box. They would always teach us key things like “follow your heart not the norm”, “when you don’t have peace, stop” “give your best, no matter what,” and instead of always having us learn through a text book, they gave us experiences. This included travel, helping in the kitchen, designing a website, and learning to play the piano by ear instead of looking at a note. This basis of learning is what I apply in every part of my life, career and extend to my clients.
The excitement and anticipation of seeing your captured memories! We love getting you immediate previews! Within 24 hours guaranteed - we will get you a preview of your wedding day! You want that “thank you” picture, or the picture with your grandma, you bet! Ask us and we’ll send it over asap!

There are some questions of why it takes so long, and here’s why: I LOVE WHAT I DO & want to give you my best quality product possible! To ensure I can give you the best quality end heirloom images - I not only have an editor who helps with my editing style, but I don’t let one image leave my editing space without my wholehearted approval. Rest, family time & healthy exercise are vital for consistent quality delivery to my clients during our peak season, and I’ve never gone past the 8 week mark (knock on wood! - but I will certainly be in touch with you if so!) - I have given myself this window to ensure I don’t cut quality of our service by cutting the quality of life (something I’m deeply passionate about)!
All my clients receive their wedding images in an online gallery to download & print themselves. All my clients from 10 years ago still have their galleries online & available! I leave them up and because I know the fear of loss in our digital age, they stay. Images are delivered edited high resolution, you receive a print release to print yourselves and access to our professional print shop to shop wholesale heirloom professional prints. (If you haven’t purchased the digital negatives due to a portrait collection you chose, this doesn’t apply.) Some packages include a custom USB, and can also be an add on to any collection.

I've done over 225 weddings as of end of 2019, and our team has a combined experience of over 400 weddings!
With prior experience having lost photos taken of me 13 years ago, it's been absolutely my #1 goal to backup images over and over again. When I went to photography school in 2010 we went over and over this, and a hard core part of my workflow! On our cameras we shoot to 2 cards at once (backing up images), and once we get home from your event we are backing up your photos to 2 external harddrives, and then into an online cloud. I currently own 4 cameras: (2) 5DMark3 Canon, Fuji xt-2, and 7D Canon. We are always having fun renting new gear and experimenting with new lenses as well! My second photographer (usually Katherine) also has 2 cameras she brings to every wedding: 5dMark4 & 5dMark2!
