*I am a social worker in the Bay Area, California.  Photography  keeps me grounded and grateful-keeps me seeing vibrant color and the everyday details that make life meaningful.  I feel so lucky to share in and capture important moments in people’s lives.

I adore bold colors, and playful and heartfelt images.  I primarily use natural light, and like to keep it simple and organic with one basic lens.  All are welcome, and accepted.

I have been taking  photos for ten years, and minored in Studio Art with a  focus on photography.  Pun intended.*

Laughing Lens Photography Origins:

*My amazing friend Gina and I can potentially collaborate on larger shoots, events, weddings, etc.  Here is a little bit about us!

We are Gina Parks and Jenny McKenzie.  We’ve been friends for over half our lives, and loving art

together and individually since then.  Now we find our lives overlapping, and we are excited to collaborate on our newest endeavor.

Together, we are working on building our portfolio and are excited to meet new clients.  We’re open to accommodate your budget.

We love photographing people in their natural habitat; in unique and meaningful settings with natural light.  We find joy in helping our clients feel comfortable and cherished in front of our laughing and lenses.*

Client Feedback:

“I continue to be floored, astounded and delighted with the wedding photos! I didn’t know that it would be through the photos that I ‘realize’ the event, but it is so true! At the wedding itself, there is so much flying by so fast that it is kind of a blur, and I see now that it is through the photographer that the bride really experiences her wedding!
I still marvel at how you could be so many places at once, and discretely take such wonderful candid shots! I don’t know how you did it […] you somehow did it all so discretely, so sweetly, and (did I mention?) so EXCELLENTLY leaves me standing back in wonder!
I’m still getting phone calls and Facebook postings daily about how great the photos were.
So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU once again for being our wedding photographer/historian. You are just the BEST!”

“Jenny of Laughing Lens Photography did such an amazing job with our wedding photos! She is so talented and intuitive and incredibly kind. I recommend her enthusiastically!! She absolutely rocks! check out these amazing shots she took of our special day!!”
