It’s all about natural smiles, real moments, real stories, keeping it candid. I also like my images colourful, playful, and fun, and I like to use unusual angles and composition.
I love to have a laugh with you and take the time to get to know you a bit before we dive in, so it doesn’t feel so much like a stranger taking your photo, but an adventure that happens to be caught on camera.
You might see this specific photography genre (unposed and candid) also referred to as ‘lifestyle’, ‘reportage’ or ‘documentary’ style. For weddings and family photography this means that I don’t pose you, tell you to pull certain faces, make you poke out from behind a tree or ask you to ‘reenact’ a moment because I missed it!
The services I offer include:
- Documentary Wedding Photography
- Lifestyle Family Photography
- Event Photography
- Commercial Photography
- Headshots and Portrait Sessions
- Photography Workshop Days
- 1-2-1 Photography Training
- “Get to know your Camera” Tuition

I’m Jen Holland, a reportage photographer based in Kent but travelling all around the UK. I have photographed over 30 weddings as well as other events and special family occasions.
I’m actually a Psychology graduate who fell into photography “by accident”, and I’m married to Tom, who is half-dutch. I grew up in North London, but now live in Canterbury where I studied, met Tom, and stayed!
