me tell you a little about myself. I am Jennifer Kiger-Brast
of Photography by Jennifer.
This is where "photography from a woman's perspective"
does that mean? you may ask yourself. Well, to truly know the
answer you need to visit with me and see my work. My work
reflects the "woman's perspective" and that perspective
is derived from all of my life experiences. I have been the bride,
the wedding coordinator, the florist, the makeup artist, the seamstress,
the psychologist, as well as a few other things, on top of
being the photographer at any given event. I know what you go through to plan,
to execute, and to maintain sanity at your
wedding and I understand your concerns. My sensitivity and
patience will put you at ease. The definition of "photography
from a woman's perspective" could include such things as
attention to detail, knowing how
to get relaxed
and natural facial expressions in any situation to make
everyone look good, a photojournalistic eye for
creative and innovative shots, not being afraid to try something
different, and perfect timing in knowing
when to take the picture, - weddings shouldn't
be that hard!
am a native Texan and started my career in photography
over 20 years ago. Fresh out of college with a Bachelor's Degree
in Photography from Sam Houston State University, I designed and built a studio on
some family property
in Houston, filed my D.B.A., and started shooting professionally.
I worked as a photojournalist for several local newspapers and covered everything
from high school sports to community events. I spent hundreds of hours in the darkroom processing and printing
those pictures. Along the way I won a few awards and most importantly
won a lot of clients. As my business grew, I
was shooting weddings almost every weekend. In 2006, I
expanded into the Austin area and settled in the hills of Lake
Austin near Bee Cave. I now call Austin home and look
forward to new opportunities in a place I have yearned to be a
part of for so long, although I still travel to cover events all
I have seen a lot of changes within the industry. Beginning my
career with film and learning the true art of photography, I
have now successfully transitioned into the new digital age which does allow me
much more freedom to get those spontaneous moments quickly
and without much fuss. The new digital "coffee table" style
albums are a blast to design and I am enjoying the creative
outlet this brings. I constantly
strive to not only continue my education in photography but to improve and
challenge myself with new and creative techniques.
Let me show you what
"photography from a woman's perspective" can mean for you.
