Northeast Ohio Wedding and Portrait Photographer
My name is Jenna McCarty and I am a Northeast Ohio Wedding and Portrait Photographer. I specialize in documentary style, timeless photographs that capture the love and emotion felt between couples and families. I am best known for my willingness to work with my clients to make their photo session the best it can possibly be. While my photography business officially began in 2014, I have always been fascinated by photography my entire life and it is my passion. I love capturing the beautiful, unforgettable moments on wedding days.
While I am based in Warren, OH, I do service all of Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia. I am fortunate to live in Warren, OH as I am only a short drive to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Akron and Canton. I work with my amazing husband Andrew on almost all of the photo sessions.
I am a full-time French teacher in Warren, OH. I love teaching and photography so I continue to do both.
The reason that I love photography is because I love capturing moments. Henri Cartier-Bresson said "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy." I love freezing moments that will only ever exist again through photography, like the moment when a groom sees his bride for the first time or when the father of the bride sees his little girl all dressed up in her wedding gown.... those are my favorite. Andrew and I got married in 2013 (which seems like just yesterday yet at the same time forever ago) and to be completely honest our wedding day flew by. We remember the main events but the little details have become blurry over time and it is through out wedding photography that we remember our amazing wedding day.
While I have always loved photography, I never truly understood the power of photography until the passing of my brother. When someone close to us passes away, the only parts of them that remain are our memories and photos of them. Photography gives us the opportunity to remember and honor those who have been parts of our lives and as a photographer, I am truly blessed and honored to capture your memories. I do not mean to be so morbid (I'm actually a very friendly, outgoing, bubbly person, I promise) but I think to understand me as a photographer, you need to understand my motivations. I am motivated by wanting to capture the moments spent with your loved ones and freeze those memories in time in beautiful, unique, timeless photos.
