I fell in love with wedding photography when I shot my first wedding at 18 years old. When I was 20 years old, during my junior year in college, I knew that I had found my passion and decided to incorporate my photography business. Since then, I have been lucky enough to capture countless weddings of a wide variety of cultures, styles, sizes, and budgets including Christian, Armenian, Indian, Greek, and Muslim weddings, as well as intimate weddings, 300+ guest weddings, beach weddings, fall weddings, farm weddings, backyard weddings, courthouse weddings, and many more. I’m very grateful to be able to do what I love and I can’t wait to share more special days with more unique couples!
There’s no greater honor than to be able to photograph a couple’s happiest day, and for that reason I take my job very seriously. I will always strive to capture the mood, style, and all the important moments to the best of my abilities, while being attentive yet unobtrusive, and making the couple feel comfortable and calm throughout the whole day. Please feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to answer any questions or help you plan & book your wedding!
Lin Pernille Photography is based in North Jersey, with a studio located in Jersey City. Transportation costs to any location in NJ is included with any event or wedding photography package, but I often shoot all over the East Coast including Upstate NY, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, & Maryland, and would be happy to travel to any location!
