Behind the Lens

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!

I started this business almost a decade ago, as a Photography/Computer Digital Imagery student at Shepherd University (Go Rams!) with a dream to share artistic joy with others. However, life seemed to have a different plan. I slowly moved into the corporate world, and lost touch with my creative side. After lots of soul searching and a 7 year hiatus, I found my love for photography (again) during the pandemic shutdown. I decided to relaunch my business in March 2021, and went full-time June 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 being a tourist in my own city!
