Wedding, elopement and headshot photographer in the Washington DC area, by Jen Cody
About Jen Cody


I'm Jen and I am a professional photographer in Washington, DC. I love to photograph weddings, elopements and professional headshots. I also work with clients on personal and business branding photography sessions.

If you are planning a wedding or elopement, please get in touch so we can discuss photography for your big day!

If you need a professional headshot or images for your personal or professional branding, I'd love to have you come in to the studio so we can create a great business portrait for you.

With over ten years of experience photographing happy couples, I would love to be a part of your wedding or elopement. I live in Old Town Alexandria (which is an excellent place to get married!) but I travel around the DC metro area for my clients. I recently changed my company name from Egomedia to Jen Cody Photography to keep things simpler for everyone!

I have been named as a preferred photographer in Washingtonian Bride & Groom. My work has been published, including images featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Washingtonian Bride & Groom, The Capital, The Knot, Brides, New Jersey Bride, Philadelphia Magazine, Manhattan Bride and What's Up Annapolis. Several of my weddings have been featured by wedding blogs, including District Weddings, United With Love, DIY Bride, Bayside Bride, Something Navy, Oh So Fabulous!, Celebrate the Event, Offbeat Bride and Hello Harbor.

I love barbecue, crossfit, and vintage jewelry. I'm laid back and have a bit of a dark sense of humor. I am recently engaged to the love of my life, so I understand just how excited you are to start your life together! We are planning our wedding, so I have a new perspective on what planning a wedding is all about (see us below).

I like to travel and I love living in the DC area. I've been here since 2001, so if you need suggestions on where to get married, I'd be glad to help!

I would love to hear more about your event! Please contact me to talk more.
