Jennifer Costello was born and raised in Queens, NY. She attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA, where she first launched her wedding & portrait photography business in 2001. In 2007, Jennifer relocated her business to Portland, Oregon.
In 2011, Jennifer started Portland Photo Tour but decided to postpone the business in 2013, when she found out she was having twins! In 2017, she relaunched Portland Photo Tour to much excitement from her client base and fantastic Trip Advisor Reviews.
Jennifer has captured 500+ weddings and 200+ portraits, as well as provided instruction to 2000+ students. She currently lives in Sherwood, Oregon with her husband, 5-year-old twins and 2 dogs.
