Who are you and what do you do? My name is Jennifer Colborne-Lewis, and I’m a wedding photographer (JSW Photography), as well as a wedding specialist.

Your contact details? The best way to contact me is through the web – or

You are currently planning your own wedding, what has been the most stressful part for you? Honestly?  The dress!  I have no idea – there’s so many amazing ones to choose from!
Out of all your photography services that you offer what is most valuable to brides? Definitely my coffee table albums – they offer a fresh alternative for lasting memories that can be kept for future generations.

What is your favorite wedding photography spot? Almost anywhere in Muskoka (I’m not biased at all!).  If there’s trees or water, it’s a favourite spot.

Funniest wedding story: I was photographing one wedding, and the poor officiant couldn’t keep the couples names straight – he had done 3 other weddings that day, and kept referring to the last couple of the day by everyone elses name!

If you weren’t a photographer what would you be doing? You mean there was a choice?  🙂  Probably working in the hotel industry, maybe writing a book .. maybe even a chef!

Your greatest business achievement? The first wedding I booked and photographed – I was so nervous, yet so excited!  Also, recognizing the need to help brides search the continious lists of vendors, which resulted in launching Sensational Weddings.

3 wedding essentials that all brides should think about: Comfortable shoes, for a looong day of standing!  A planning checklist and organizer, to keep track of everything in case something goes wrong (and hopefully it doesn’t!).  And strength – not just to get through a looong, emotional day – but strength to make that day your own!
