meet Kathy

Hi! I am a wedding photographer based in Lexington, Virginia. I am  retired and loving my newfound freedom! I am a wife, mother, grandmother, lover of Diet Dr. Pepper, peanut butter and all things electronic! 
From my childhood, I have one photo of me as a baby and a handful of others throughout my youth. I guess that is why I am obsessed with preserving memories for others!  I am so thankful I have always had a camera in my hand to capture memories for my family as well as my awesome clients! The joy it brings me to see how much they enjoy their photos  and how much the photos mean to them..well, I could never put a price tag on that!  I cherish those moments and I want the same experience for you! 
Your wedding day is important to me! When you book with KJP, you get a unique client experience. I love the fact that I get to really know all of my clients. I only take a limited amount of weddings a year, so I get to give you a more unique, more personalized experience. You are always able to contact me and you will always get a reply very quickly. I will hold your hand through creating family photo lists, timelines, and all things wedding! I can also recommend vendors that I have loved working with! When I arrive at your wedding, I hope you feel like your friend who has helped you with your wedding has just walked in the door! Your only job will be to have fun and enjoy your day!  I want to provide you with photos that you will cherish for years to come..just like I have with my family and my fabulous clients! 


what others have to say

Absolutely Amazing to Work With :) She and her team were fantastic and made sure to capture our day beautifully! We were beyond excited to review all of our wedding pictures and were blown away at how well they captured everything! Kathy was one of the first and best decisions we made when it came to our wedding day preparations. Not only would we recommend her to other couples looking for their big day but we also hope to work with her again one day for family pictures :)

Kathy and her team were a dream to work with! Our photographs from our wedding are wonderful, and they did an excellent job capturing all aspects of our big day!

Jacob and Keegan

I cannot express enough how thankful my husband and I are for Kathy Jennings Photography. Kathy is so kind and easy to get along with. Kathy makes you feel like you've know her forever. She is on top of things! Not one of my emails went unanswered and she is very quick to respond.  Kathy did a beautiful job and made is feel comfortable enough in front of the camera. She made us laugh a lot which made for some wonderful pictures. I didn't realize how crazy the day of the wedding is and all the details you don't notice until we looked through all of our pictures.  Kathy and her team are very hard working and there will you til the very end capturing every last moment. Choosing the Kathy Jennings team was one of the best decisions we made.

John and Jonni

I cannot say enough great things about Kathy Jenning’s Photography nor could I of asked for a better wedding photographer! She works hard to capture every moment to share your perfect story- from the tiniest details to the big fairy tale moments. Top notch quality! Professionalism at its best!

If you're looking for a wedding photographer- look no further! Kathy's pictures from our engagement session, and our wedding were absolutely beautiful. She captured all the moments we asked for, but some of my favorite shots were ones she suggested. She spent so much time with us finding out what's important to capture on our big day. I can't imagine there is anyone else who could have captured our day so magically.

Grant and Brittany

Kathy is deserving of far more than a 5 star rating! Her work, her commitment, and her energy are second to none. Her attention to detail is absolutely evident is every single shot she takes. I have gone back a million times to look through the albums, and I notice something new each time. Our wedding photos, in particular, amaze me! There are details from the day that I didn't see, and she was there capturing them so that I could look back years from now and remember every aspect of our day! Kathy also does the best job at making your feel comfortable, and she genuinely wants you to enjoy being in front of the camera while she captures some of the most important moments of your life! 

Lisa, Brittany's Mom

Kathy Jennings Photography captured our daughter's wedding in pictures that we will treasure for a lifetime. She is beyond AMAZING, and she is a pure joy to work with! I have never seen someone that puts so much personal time and special touches into her work. She captured details that I did not even see on the wedding day. Details that take my breath away! She was with us through every step – from engagement pictures to bridal portraits to wedding day. I had told her before the wedding that she had been blessed with a gift, but after the wedding I told her she was blessed 1,000 times over!  If I said thank you 100 times a day every day for the rest of my life it would not be enough for the memories that she captured. If you are looking for the BEST, I highly recommend Kathy Jennings Photography!

Brian and Tina

Kathy was amazing, not only did her and her sister take amazing photos but they made me feel beautiful and very special. I would highly recommend her!

Ronnie and Brittany

Kathy is AMAZING! We loved having Kathy and her team be a part of our special day. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She came with great photo ideas and captured every little detail of our wedding. We can't wait to have her capture more special moments for us.

Chase and Rebecca

Kathy did a fantastic job photographing our wedding day! She captured every moment from the small details all the way to our sparkler send off! We could not be any happier with our wedding day photos.

Nelson and Sara

Kathy and her team did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding day and we would recommend her services to anyone. She is such a kind person, and I can't imagine anyone else could have worked harder to insure we got all the perfects shots we requested and soo much more. But almost as important, she and her team were really good about blending into the background and not taking away from the wedding event. The photos are just amazing (she make us look GOOOD!). She was also very quick with sending us the final photos for us to share with our family and she had many high-quality professional options to have them printed as well. The day was absolutely perfect but it went by in such a blur. It is so wonderful to have these photos that captured all the beautiful details and precious moments for us to keep forever.

Andy and Alexi

Kathy's photos of my wedding were wonderful. She was very professional and a pleasure to work with. My family and I are very thankful we found her. I highly recommend her studio to anyone looking for quality photos of your special event.

I knew 2 things as soon as I got engaged; photos were most important to me & I had to have Kathy as my photographer.. When I didn’t know what I was doing or needed questions answered, Kathy was there. When things got crazy or plans changed she was there. She had help with her ready to assist in getting the shots she needed so it didn’t bother/interfere with the wedding party or getting ready. My meltdown were brushed off & reassurance was always given. Beyond that & most importantly, the pictures that were taken are so amazingly beautiful & will be cherished for the rest of our lives.  Previews were up the next day & each day brought another beautiful shot.. I don’t think Kathy truly understands how amazing she is, or how much I loved working with her & every single shot she snapped for our day.
