Welcome friend!  I'm a poetic soul who loves light catching with a camera. I'm a solopreneur who loves telling your story! Grab your favorite bubbly drink (a LaCroix in my case) and have a look around!

Hi, I'm jennifer.

I suppose quarantine during COViD-19 isn’t a bad time to start blogging about my personal life (so far, I’ve only shared amazing client work)! I’ve been wondering how to start in, and so I pop the proverbial champagne with this first post in the category to announce a very special occasion! As you may have […]

Enoch is One! A Quarantine Birthday

Hallelujah! The governor lifted the Stay-At-Home order! I know everyone will agree that it’s been a hard slog through quarantine. Do not hang out with friends. Do not hug others. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. (Anyone else feel like March & April 2020 was a bit like playing Monopoly? I mean, even […]

Spring Engagement Session filled with blossoms!

As I drove onto the campus of Shattuck St. Mary’s, two truths pressed upon me. The first: it was literally hovering around or below freezing temperatures. The second: I wanted to serve and love Carissa & Justin as best as I possibly could–but would she be able to withstand the temperature? My fear was unfounded–not […]

To photograph in Northfield, Minnesota offers many iconic vistas. The city is proud of its bridges, its fountain, the surrounding fields,  the two colleges, and natural lands. One thing became clear as I began Elise & Renato’s session: we had to get to the riverside gazebo. Both independently shared with me the prominence of this location in their […]

As a photographer, you know your clients are truly invested when they book you for an engagement session in January (in Minnesota!) Usually the morbidly low temperatures around here keep visitors out of our state, but this year we had exactly freezing weather! (And those in Minnesota clap their hands! 32 degrees is balmy!) I am […]

The photograph above is basically how my happy dance looks! As a solo-prenuer (aka the only one behind the face of Jennifer Sanders Photography), I am so often smiling behind my desktop screen as I edit images for my clients. Being a wedding and family photographer in Northfield, Minnesota is so such rewarding work. I light […]

In the merry hall of the Armory Square Event Center, two newlyweds dance their first dance. Like so many couples before them, the song plays and they faithfully swing to the beat. At this point in most weddings, guests may find their minds wandering as the song continues, waiting for the dance floor to open. […]

Have you ever walked in a room expecting something amazing, and then your expectation gets trumped with something even more astounding? This is how I felt in the Archer House River Inn Suite when Laurel revealed item after item of hand-picked, handmade details that had me leaping for joy on the inside! First: her wedding bouquet.

Nothing can be more thrilling to me than a hometown wedding–especially one in Northfield, Minnesota! (Seriously, local is best!) Selena & Kyle’s wedding at the Church of St. Dominic took stage on one of the last gorgeous days of fall, and how the sun shone! One of my favorite moments took place during the reception […]

As a resident of Northfield, Minnesota, I know how flighty the trees can be with their fall color–all it takes is one fell swoop of utter chill to leave the branches bare. So when Lena & Eric pushed back their engagement session in hopes of catching peak golden and red hues, I knew the risk […]
