Hi I'm Jennifer, owner and primary photographer of Village Studio Photography & Portraits located in downtown Ridgewood, NJ and Montclair, NJ.


When I was 16, I knew I wanted to help people see who they really were, not fully knowing what that meant or​ ​having any experience with a camera. Here we are almost 20 years later and (talk about manifesting)​ ​I am a portrait artist who​ visually​ tells ​people's stories​,​ especially of women​,​ and captures the spaces they are in (mental space, family ​dynamic, ​highlighting ​relationships, professional ​aspirations) in order to empower​ ​and to drive to success​ by use of light and beauty.​ ​I gather an essence of how my subject would like to be portrayed. Professional. Strong. Sexy. Innovative. Warm. Elegant. A connector. In order to create timeless, yet modern​,​ heirloom-quality fine works of art.


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 where I was going to people's homes to photograph their children and milestones. After learning all I could technically, I went out on my own to document the lives of my clients and give back to my community.



"Create an Inspired Legacy"

Building a space where someone can feel comfortable and authentic enough to photograph what they love about themselves was always key in creating Village Studio. I wanted those I photograph to be inspired to tell THEIR story and leave empowered to conquer the world in a more confident way. If this resonates with you, I'm here to guide you through each step of the way, with a team of experts to pamper you for a celebrity experience.




What would you like your photographs to say? How would you like your story to be told? How would you like to highlight YOUR Legacy?


“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.
