↡ More about us  ↡

Hey! I'm Jen...

I’m the star gazing, swing dancing, singing in the car lead photographer and owner of BlueVerve Studio. A creative through and through, I spend my spare time writing, sketching, and snuggling with Andy and our two fur babies, Cali and Hobbes. I’m equal parts romantic and pragmatic, and nearly incapable of saying no to pie.

And, I'm Andy...

Part musician/songwriter, part photographer, I’m the 2nd photographer and photo caddy here at BlueVerve Studio. I’m also a converted cat person. *sigh*  You can count on me for comedic relief and a reminder to take your cell phone out of your pocket for portraits!

"I think as photographers, it's our responsibility to genuinely reflect what makes people shine.
We're like little mirrors, catching light and bouncing back memories." — Jen

Ask us anything...

  • Okay, so you’re a couple that works together. What’s that like?

    We both agree it’s helped our communication quite a bit. And we love that it allows us to share all of these really neat, touching experiences together. Plus, we both get the chance to see how the other sees the world. Literally.

  • What’s your favorite time of day?

    I’m definitely more of a night owl. I love sunsets, and working late into the night. I’m actually most productive from about 9pm – 2am.

    I dig editing in my pajamas. 😏

  • What’s your favorite board game?

    Ooh, I’m definitely a Boggle man. Jen and I play as often as we can, and have even been known to challenge people we meet while traveling to Boggle matches. 

    Matches, right? Sports… *shrugs*

  • Who’s your biggest photographic inspiration?

    Ansel Adams. Hands down. Some of the light in his work seriously makes me want to cry. In the best of ways.

  • Cats or Dogs?

    Seriously, is this a question?

    36 months ago, I’d have said cats suck. I’ve been converted.

  • Cats or Dogs?

    This is NOT a question.

  • What’s your favorite part of photography?

    Photographs are the LEGACY we leave behind, from our wedding photos to the images we have taken to celebrate our changing lives and simple mementos.  They are art, they are stories, and they are what we will recall when we sit with those we love, years from today, recounting the dearest times of our lives. So being a part of those stories is pretty great. Photography has also allowed me to experience incredible things, that I probably wouldn’t have encountered otherwise.

  • And your favorite part of photography is?

    Catching someone mid-laughter, or genuinely happy and surprised. I’m all about candid interactions.

  • Where can we find you on a day off?

    Camping with Jen, antiquing, woodworking, fishing (not nearly as often as I’d like), and spending far too much time in coffee and bookshops.

    I also spend a fair amount of time writing original music, and in the recording studio.

  • Where can we find you on a day off?

    Yes! Camping! 

    When we’re not outside, walking or enjoying nature, we’re definitely coffee house and bookshop people. Personally, I’m getting back to painting more again, and love any excuse to dance or sing. And practicing yoga, of course.

  • What’s with the blue hair?

    Eh, I change my hair a lot. I always have. *shrugs*

    It’s a little piece of how I express myself, I guess.

    You know, like a lady version of that horse of a different color in The Wizard of Oz
