Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my site. My name is Jennifer Roach, and I’m the photographer behind Jennifer Marie Photography. I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based in Dallas, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. I serve the Metro Atlanta area, and I’m available for travel all over the state of Georgia and beyond!
I grew up in Thomaston, Georgia, and then moved to Columbus to attend college at Columbus State University, where I met my husband. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English, because I always thought I was meant to be a writer. However, I found a different calling later in life! We moved to the greater Atlanta area in 2007 after the birth of our first child. Not long after, I started experimenting with photography as a hobby. It wasn’t until after our other two children were born that I really started studying it seriously. I struck out on my own and officially started my own business in May 2015. I have my children to thank for discovering my passion for photography.
I am a natural light photographer with a style that is light and timeless. I don’t overdo it on the Photoshopping or heavy photo filters. Trends come and go in photography; in ten years, you may hate your once-trendy photos with filters that will look dated. I want you to love your photos not just for the rest of your life, but for generations to come! You can browse through my portfolio for some examples.
Over the years, I have found my true love lies in wedding photography. I love all kinds of portrait photography, but I really fell in love with weddings. After I shot my first wedding (as a third-string shooter!) I was instantly hooked. The magic, the excitement, the glitz, the tears… I absorb it all, and I transcribe it into photographs.
My goal as your photographer is to build a priceless relationship with you. I will be by your side during one of the biggest days of your life, and I do not take that responsibility lightly. I’m not just your photographer, but your friend as well. I will cry with you, cheer for you, and celebrate with you. I stay in touch with my clients long after the photos have been delivered. I honestly love my job, and I would love to share that passion and joy with you!
