Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got, I’m still, I’m still Jenny from…Eudora, Kansas?
Hey there! Thanks for hanging around my website, I kind of wish I could have a super cool assistant named Gia or something greet you at the door or at least have a candy jar (full of the good chocolate, of course, not any of that cheap Double Bubble or Sixlet crap), but hey, this text on a webpage will do, right?
Nice to meet you! I’m Jenny Jolley. I’m your friendly neighborhood wedding photographer that loves plants, 2000s pop, making people laugh, The Office, Sprite, and alllll the desserts. I’m an LGBTQ+ advocate and believe Black Lives Matter. I serve the Kansas City / Lawrence area as a photographer, high school teacher, and the local chick jamming out in her car.
Currently, I live in the charming town of Eudora, Kansas with my husband, Chance (CJ) Jolley, and my two cats, Junior and Chaplin. I may not have a castle and Chance may not have a set of shining armor, but I swear I am living a fairytale.
Chance and I began dating in December 2012 and I fall more in love with him every day. We’re both from Osawatomie, KS and met in middle school, but it wasn’t until after I left for Emporia State University that we began dating! We got married on June 7th, 2019 and still feel like the mushy gushy teenagers in love that we were many years ago. We love going out on dates that involve tasty local restaurants and of course, dessert. We’re dessert fanatics! We also love old fashioned soda, going out on walks, video games, laughing at memes/Tik Toks, and dancing in the kitchen. One of the reasons I love documenting love stories is because I’m so madly in love my prince charming. On each wedding day I photograph, a small piece of me experiences my wedding day all over again as I reminiscence and get so excited for another couple to start their forever together. It’s truly magical!

THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL ALIVE

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m OBSESSED with my cats (they have their own highlight, for crying out loud). Chance and I love giving Chaplin (left) and Junior (right) lots of cuddles. We adopted Junior with his brother, Captain, who passed away suddenly in fall 2021 and we miss him every day! Chaplin is our “rainbow kitten” – a sister of Junior and Captain from another litter. When I’m editing your photos or answering your emails, there’s a chance these two are giving me this look in the photo! Seriously, this is their spot right next to my desk!
