Hey — I'm Jena

about jena lee photographs

In 2015 — right before I was about to move from Golden BC to Vancouver for my photography diploma — my Dad passed away very suddenly. The entire time I studied photography and built Jena Lee Photographs, his loss was kept close to my heart.

The feeling of losing a loved one continues to be my source of inspiration as your photographer. I know how important these memories and photographs will become one day.

Let's make sure that in five or ten years from now you will have beautiful candid images to look back on and tell your story.

Trust that I will photograph your family with as much care as I do my own.

Anyone can stand and say cheese for a photo; it’s my goal to go beyond superficial, canned portraits.

A little about me ...

i have a professional photography diploma

I grew up in golden bc

and continue to live here with my husband to this day! if you are familiar with the area, i'm sure you know why.

if you have never been here, put it on your list.

i studied photography at langara college in vancouver bc.

it was a really special time in my life and i loved the program (but i don't think you need to study professionally to be successful).

we are on a ttc journey...

my spare time is spent...

i hope to change this one soon.

my husband and i have been trying to start a family since 2020 — i share lots about this on my instagram and that has been so helpful to find a community and start some amazing relationships.

resort skiing at kicking horse mountain, backcountry skiing, cross country skiing... i guess skiing is pretty central in my life.

lately i have been obsessed with drawing (and getting) tattoos.

I Learned About Photographer Burnout The Hard Way

Join The Team:

I am looking to add 1-2 associate photographers to my team, specifically in the banff, canmore and calgary areas.

these positions would be best suited for photographers who are already familiar with portrait photography, and possibly someone who already has their own photography business and is looking for extra work.

My style is pretty laid-back and casual, yet professional. it's more important to me to find the right person than it is for them to have enough photo experience — if this sounds great to you please send me an email with a bit about yourself and a few photos to hello@jenaleelaroy.com.
