Meet Jen.

Hi there, my name is Jen El-Haddad! I am the lead photographer, and owner of "Jennifer Mary Photography". I specialize in lifestyle photography and portraits!

My love for photography started at a young childhood age. I was always snapping photos with a Poloroid or disposible camera; and flipping through old albums. I was always so intrigued by the stories that these photographs told.

Fast forward to my Junior year in high school, I took her first Black & White Film Class, and fell in love! You could always find me in the dark room when I wasn't on the soccer field.

My Senior year, I injured my knee and my soccer career was ruined. I started to look at Photography programs, and landed at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV (Go Rams!)

I started this business almost a decade ago, as a Photography/Computer Digital Imagery student with a dream to share artistic joy with others. However, life seemed to have a different plan. As I slowly moved into the corporate world, and lost touch with my creative side and was just so incredibly burnt out. 

After lots of soul searching and a 7 year hiatus, I found my love for photography (again) during the pandemic. I decided to relaunch my business in March 2021, and went full-time on May 28, 2021.

I’m a curly-headed, Old Bay loving, Lilly Pulitzer wearing, and caffeine-dependent millennial. In late-December 2017, I moved from Maryland to gorgeous Charleston, SC; where I experienced my first Southern snow storm (which consisted of 4 inches of snow and almost 2 weeks of snow days for students!)

When I’m not channeling my creativity, you can find me at the beach, working out, or traveling!
