Yes, I am available for travel. My photography services are much different than a typical "studio" experience.

Contact me today to schedule a fabulous custom session- you will LOVE the results. Availability is limited.

Specializing in: Wedding, High School Senior, Fantasy Sessions, Boudoir, Model/Actor Portfolios, Children, Newborn, Family, Maternity, Commercial, Black & White Photography and Fine Art.

Awarded Work

I cannot believe it is the last day of February today! Wow- I have had such an incredible and busy month that the time seriously just vanished. Each month I try to show some of my work which gets recognized at the various online photo sites which I participate in on my Blog. Better on the last day than never! ha!!

My overall participation was down a bit this month because I was pressed for time... but I always look forward to the free time I get to spend at these sites. The members are wonderful to interact with and learn from. Viewing loads of talented artists work is quite inpsirational as well. Each site I am a member of sort of has their own "style" so it is nice to belong to more than one. If you have ever considered getting a bit more serious about your photography, check out my gallery links in the right hand column of my Blog... click on one and try it! They are all relatively easy and inexpensive to join.

Here is some newly awarded work of mine:

Stay tuned for March! I am going to have some new stuff to share with you all... and perhaps a fun special or two! :)

Stylists now Available, Metro Detroit Wedding & Model Photographer

Would you like to have someone available to assist with you with your hairstyle and/or makeup application prior to our photoshoot? If you answered yes to that question- than I have some great news for you! Now, for the cost of just a print or two, just "let me know" if you want this and it will be taken care of for you.

Yep, it is true... I finally have decided to call stylists to my shoots for those clients who desire their services. For brides, models and even high school Junior/Seniors who are intrested in having someone else take care of the styling on the day of our photoshoot, I will now contact someone for you. I am working with several stylists who do amazing work and will be able to take care of all the booking details for you.

My goal is to make it as easy for you as possible... your job is to relax and have fun- my job is to make you look beautiful. You will love the results!!!
Besides... ladies... when you FEEL beautiful, your expressions are so much more confident and that results in amazing images. Plus, lets admit it... it is lots of fun to be pampered. HA! The makeup artists and hair stylists I recommend are qualified professionals who are able to accommodate loads of requests. They work their magic in about 45 minutes. Whether it be a natural, glamorous, dramatic or flat out crazy concept, my contacts can do it. They seriously know how to bring out the best in you. :)

Here are a handful of additional recent images I took with help from Makeup Artist's, Deanna & Ashely and Hair Stylist, Chelsey M. I can contact them to assist YOU in any session you book with me. Please let me know if you would like this new "perk" I am offering when you book and I will provide you with further details.

For bridal sessions and weddings, too!

I hope you enjoyed the images of these 8 ladies who all recently received styling assistance when working with me!! Keep in mind the new option you now have at JenniferAlderPhotography. I understand that you desire high quality final products... please let me know if this new feature is something you would like to include in your custom session.

My New Website is up and running!!!

February really snuck up fast on me this year! wow! After many hours... days... weeks of work and completing projects- my new web site is finally up and running. Yay :)

So, a ton of people asked me WHY I needed to change it in the first place. My answer to that is: I really wanted a place where I could display images a lot larger than my old site allowed. With the new site, so much more detail can be observed- especially in the client proofing area. In addition, I wanted a distinct area for my wedding photography. A place JUST for brides, grooms and wedding details. I do have a few photo galleries still to add and some final touch ups to take care of still... but for now it is up and running just fine.

Other News: My wedding site now has a list of preferred vendors! If you are planning a wedding, please consider contacting them! WONDERFUL people and high quality products all around.
Over the next month or two, be sure to look for my photographs on their web sites, advertising or even hanging up in their shops!
