I'm Jennifer. I am a photographer because I've been led here! Right here. I love photography. My affection is a mere step away from an obsession. To explain how Bang Images was founded, here's the path in bullet points because I also love bullet points.

• My dad took a lot of photos of our family. 
• I became interested in photography at an early age and played around with film cameras before studying photography as an art.
• I took my first class in college in the mid 90's. 
• I got a Bachelor's degree in art education and a year later a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography.
• I taught at a Montessori school for 15 years.
• While teaching I never stopped photographing people, and loved my new subjects-my husband and children.
• I began taking photos by request and became interested in wedding photography too.
• As much as I liked teaching, I needed to satisfy the incredible urge and curiosity I had about pursuing photography as a career.
• I resigned from teaching in 2015 and founded Bang Images. 
• I could not be happier to watch this company grow.
• It is a true labor of love, and I don't think I've ever felt so connected to a "job".
• My goal is to create a beautiful fusion between documentary photography and fine art for everyone.
•All cultures and the LGBTQIA community are very welcome!





My family in photos...

"I just saw all the photos we took together and I totally am in love. Bang Images really is a fitting name. I was able to feel chic yet raw and truly beautiful in my own pictures for once. Such a fun time shooting, super comfortable and open. Can’t wait to do it again sometime!"

"Jennifer is a kind, thoughtful artist. She makes her subjects feel comfortable as themselves, and the photographs are evidence of that. Our family had a fun, playful outdoor shoot on a chilly morning. The photos are excellent, the best we’ve had as a family. I’m glad we went with BANG."

"Jennifer Alsabrook-Turner is a talented photographer with a heart of gold! This summer she volunteered her time and skills to photograph our LGBTQ youth prom at Magic City Acceptance Center. She provided a safe space for youth to express themselves as they are and feel their best - all the while completely affirming their identities and expressions. The images were gorgeous and she delivered them quickly, much to the delight of many teenagers anxious to get their photos back! We appreciate her trained eye and kind heart!"

 "When my fiance and I first met with Jennifer for our initial consultation we were so impressed about how she genuinely took time to get to know us, our families, and the details of our wedding. She made us feel comfortable and we knew after that meeting we wanted to make her our wedding/engagement photographer. Since then she's been very organized and on-top of communication, which goes well with mine and my finace's personalities. We just recently took our engagement photos and Jennifer did a great job of giving some guidance but also capturing candid, authentic photos. Since seeing our photos, we could not be happier! She really captured the essence of our relationship. We look forward to continue working with her to capture our wedding!"

"To begin with I simply ADORE Jennifer's pictures. She has such a unique eye and special perspective. I originally approached Jennifer for this very reason - I was tired of getting the same old pictures of my posed family, smiling, looking at the camera. Bang Images delivered all that and more. Jennifer is so easy-going and immediately puts you at ease. If you're someone who wants beautiful pictures, but doesn't always feel comfortable in front of a camera, Bang is for you. Jennifer is definitely open to ideas you may have for photo shoots and is willing to try new things. If you hire Jennifer, you're not only getting a quality photographer, you're getting a dedicated artist. You won't be disappointed in her work and will cherish the pictures she takes for years to come!"

"Jennifer did an OUTSTANDING job photographing our wedding at Iron City. She was extremely organized, professional, easy to work with, and gave us exactly what we wanted in terms of style and quality. We ended up with the perfect mix of candid and posed looks with an artistic edge. The photos were all so stunning! I honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect photographer to capture our wedding day. We highly highly highly recommend her!!"

 "Jennifer is the most amazing photographer!!! It was honestly a dream working with her! We had more fun that we could have imagined, and Jennifer put up with the chaos that we created on our wedding day! At the end of our day Kim and I always talk about what our favorite parts were. Other than marrying each other, both of our favorite parts were spending the day with Jennifer making memories...oh yeah and doing a photo shoot!!!! We can not thank you enough Jennifer!"

"Jennifer did a stellar job with photos, organization and interacting with the wedding party and families. I am the MOB for Marilyn & Owen's wedding. We are a collection of blended and inter-generational families, therefore, working with us is much like herding cats. Jennifer is a real pro, and it came in handy on our big day!"

"Jennifer is the most lovely person and incredible photographer. We have worked with her for three years, and she has been able to capture the spirit and uniqueness of my family. This was the first year as a family of four, and I appreciated so much that she paid just as much attention to my five year old as she did with the newborn. It made him feel special in a time where the focus has been on little brother. It’s always obvious how good he feels about himself after he sees the pictures. She is patient with my super energetic child and with my family’s goofiness. I’m so in love with every picture from every session. I cannot recommends her highly enough."

"Jennifer Alsabrook-Turner of BANG Images is a masterful photographer who sees in us what we don't see in ourselves. The project {Flow} is a celebration of all women and all their divine feminine expression, multi-faceted beauty, and humanness (read: non-perfectionism). We've been conditioned to believe beauty and sexuality are one in the same. They are not, beauty lies in flaws and most importantly in grace and vulnerability."

"We could not have had a better photographer. Jennifer, you were wonderful! She met with us several times as well as speaking over the phone to make sure that she had a list of all the different types of pictures we wanted her to do. She also had her own unique ideas of different photos she took. We are all so happy with the pictures and I can't stop looking at them! I will highly recommend Jennifer and BANG Images for anybody's photography needs! She will be our photographer for life!"

"As the Wedding Coordinator at The Sonnet House, I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer last October for Ginny & Gina's wedding. Not only was she a pleasure to work with, the photographs are amazing. Thanks again for not only doing a fantastic job for the wedding, but also so graciously sharing your work with us!"

"I really enjoyed working with Jennifer for my creative head shots! As a poet, I want my images to reflect my art, and I think my finished head shots do just that! They are colorful, slick, and hold an intensity that I just love. Jennifer made me feel comfortable and photogenic--it was painless and fun! Definitely contact her for any of your photographic needs!"

"From the engagement shoot to the wedding, Jennifer was a dream come true. She put me at ease and I had the best time. The pictures are amazing, my husband and I can’t stop looking at them! We are getting complimented daily on how beautiful our pictures are, and how happy we look. She is a master at catching the tiny details, emotion, and movement! I can’t say enough how happy we are to have had her by our side that day!!!"

 "Jennifer of BANG Images is an incredibly professional and talented photographer. We met outdoors at a public park on a gorgeous morning, and the session was so enjoyable. She captured several really sweet and beautiful images of our daughter. Being a parent herself, Jennifer knows how to engage with children to get really sincere photos from them, without a lot of phony posing or props. We know our child best, so Jennifer encouraged us to interact with our daughter as we normally would, and that she and her camera would do the rest. I highly recommend hiring BANG Images for family photos."

"If you want creative and breathtaking photos that take you back to all the little moments that come together to make something like a wedding day as special as it is, look no further.Working with Jennifer for our wedding was a dream.  Jennifer is as professional as she is visionary. During the whole process, she was really interested in understanding what we wanted out of our engagement or wedding day shots and asked questions to understand all the components of our traditional Hindu Indian wedding. While taking photos, her presence was calm (impressive considering it was a jam packed 12 hour day) and she only gave directions as much as she needed to (I particularly didn’t want a photographer that would choreograph every moment of the day so this was important to me). And the final product is more that I could have hoped for. Love all around for all that Bang Images does!!!"
