Hi and Welcome to Village Studio! I'm Jennifer!

I am the owner and primary photographer of Village Studio Photography & Portraits located in downtown Ridgewood, New Jersey and Montclair, NJ.


I am an artist who seeks to tell the stories of women and the spaces they are in (mental space, family space, relationships, professional space) and empower by light and beauty.


After going to school for art, I was trained to paint as a mural artist, taking pictures as references for the figures in the paintings. After that I was hired by a photography studio and formally taught how to use the camera. I was going to people's homes to photograph their children and milestones. After I learned all I could technically, I went out on my own to define my own course and document the lives of my clients.


What I wanted to create with Village Studio is a space where someone can come and feel comfortable enough and free enough to photograph the things they love about themselves. To be inspired to tell their story. You are in good hands with a team of experts who will guide you along each step of the way, working together to visually document your narrative (that may have come out scary-er than it actually is), and in so doing, to offer you a full service photography studio experience like none other.


"Create an Inspired Legacy"

A beautiful portrait can capture many things. In an interview prior to your photoshoot, I'd like to gather an essence of who you are and how you would like to be portrayed. The portraits we create are timeless, heirloom quality fine works of art that will last beyond both you or I.

I'd love to hear more about you and what you love.

Let's work together to highlight YOUR Legacy. What would you like your photographs to say? How would you like your story to be told?

“Jennifer is warm, innovative and so great with children! She knew just what to do to get our child to look beautiful in the pictures. She really captures the essence of the moment.”

We couldn't be more pleased with our children's photo session with Jennifer Bladel at the WinterBloom event last year. She was wonderful with our girls & made the whole experience a pleasure.  The photos were beautiful. We look forward to working with her again this year.
