ABOUT JENNY

A photographer with a one-of-a-kind, genuine wedding photography experience with timeless, beautiful, personalized galleries that follow.

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 wacko lady 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!

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!

In December 2017, I decided to do the dang thing and start my own photography business! Who knew that the girl in middle school with the bright blue CoolPix camera, constantly getting awkward angles when turning the camera around for selfies, and slapping every filter/sticker/song lyric under the sun on her photos (RIP Picnik) would become a professional wedding photographer!

If you want to get to know me more, you’ve GOT to check me out on instagram! 

 

 

“Jenny is soooo fun and easy to work with and she always has a positive attitude. With as much work that was put into my wedding and with as fast as that day went by, I am so glad I had Jenny there to capture all the special moments. She is very sweet, very professional, and very talented. She made everything seem so simple…My husband, who doesn’t like smiling for photos, really enjoyed working with her too….another win for me!! So thankful I found her!” – Emilee + Tim
