Let me tell you a little about myself. I am Jennifer Kiger-Brast of Photography by Jennifer. 
This is where "photography from a woman's perspective" began.

What does that mean? you may ask yourself. Well, to truly know the answer you need to visit with me and see my work. My work reflects the "woman's perspective" and that perspective is derived from all of my life experiences. I have been the bride, the wedding coordinator, the florist, the makeup artist, the seamstress, the psychologist, as well as a few other things, on top of being the photographer at any given event. I know what you go through to plan, to execute, and to maintain sanity at your  wedding and I understand your concerns. My sensitivity and patience will put you at ease. The definition of "photography from a woman's perspective" could include such things as attention to detail, knowing how to get relaxed and natural facial expressions in any situation to make everyone look good, a photojournalistic eye for creative and innovative shots, not being afraid to try something different, and perfect timing in knowing when to take the picture,  - weddings shouldn't be that hard!

I am a native Texan and started my career in photography over 20 years ago. Fresh out of college with a Bachelor's Degree in Photography from Sam Houston State University, I designed and built a studio on some family property in Houston, filed my D.B.A., and started shooting professionally. I worked as a photojournalist for several local newspapers and covered everything from high school sports to community events. I spent hundreds of hours in the darkroom processing and printing those pictures. Along the way I won a few awards and most importantly won a lot of clients. As my business grew, I was shooting weddings almost every weekend. In 2006, I expanded into the Austin area and settled in the hills of Lake Austin near Bee Cave. I now call Austin home and look forward to new opportunities in a place I have yearned to be a part of for so long, although I still travel to cover events all across Texas. 

I have seen a lot of changes within the industry. Beginning my career with film and learning the true art of photography, I have now successfully transitioned into the new digital age which does allow me much more freedom to get those spontaneous moments quickly and without much fuss. The new digital "coffee table" style albums are a blast to design and I am enjoying the creative outlet this brings. I constantly strive to not only continue my education in photography but to improve and challenge myself with new and creative techniques.

Let me show you what "photography from a woman's perspective" can mean for you. 

Best Wishes, Jennifer
