I am Jennifer Stanley, founder of Lost and Found Vintage Rentals in Dayton, Ohio. Some time ago, I escaped the day-to-day corporate life of marketing and graphic design to bring a world of beauty, style, and seamless perfection to photographers and brides alike. I enjoy being creative, resourceful and hunting down the perfect piece to make your event or photo session unique.
For my bridal clients, I enjoy curating the pieces used to create an exquisite wedding-day vignette that not only complements the personality of my clients, but also the venue and overall atmosphere.
For photographers, I provide a natural light photography studio which is available for year-round, hourly use. I also host frequent events where I design themed events for photographers to participate in with their clients. I also boast a warehouse of unique well-cared-for vintage props available for rent to qualified professional photographers.
I absolutely love serving in a way that allows me to help build the foundation for beautiful memories - via weddings or photo sessions - meant to be cherished and documented for lifelong enjoyment.
When I’m not working with brides and photographers, I’m enjoying time with my husband, our three sons and our two Golden Doodles. I hope you enjoyed getting to know more about me. I look forward to getting to know more about you and serving you well in the near future.

This is Nikki Stargel. She is my friend, fellow photographer and now the Studio Manager. She helps me manage the busy photography studio, helps set up and tear down rooms of furniture for incoming clients, opens the studio for contractors, and listens to my never-ending lists of ideas with nothing but grace and love.
This is Evan Eggers. He is the "muscle" behind Lost and Found Vintage Rentals. He makes it possible for me to run the business effectively. He lifts heavy furniture, loads on and off the tall shelving, in and out of the delivery truck, travels to pickup new inventory, delivers to venues and photo shoots, paints, cleans, helps organize and more. Evan is always a blast to be around and he has almost stopped complaining when I tell him I bought a new piece of inventory. 🙂
This is Brittany Thiebeau of BT Photography. She is an amazing friend who has developed unknowingly into the Staff Photographer. Brittany photographs all of my inventory, some sets, headshots and more. She is an amazing photographer and specializes in senior and commercial photography.
This is Kellie Daab of I Do Collective. Kellie is my Virtual Assistant and has the hard task of keeping me on track. We are working on developing systems within my business to help streamline my processes as my business continues to grow. Kellie is a wealth of knowledge of all things wedding-related and I admire her work ethic and skills tremendously.
This is Katie Mathews of New Roots Calligraphy. She is the sweetest soul I've ever met. She provides the most beautiful hand lettering work for my studio and my clients. I haven't found a task Katie didn't complete with ease and a smile.
This is Dave Lambert of Lebanon Upholstery. He is my "go-to" guy when I have issues with the fabric or condition of any of the pieces of the Lost and Found Vintage Rentals' inventory. He is always upfront, easy to work with and makes sure the job is completed to perfection.
Introducing Mr. Chip Gardner (my own in-house "Chip Gaines." He is our resident wood worker, construction guru and overall handyman. If I think it up, he can build it, which comes in handy now that we are offering custom build services. Did you see something on Pinterest you want to incorporate into your wedding, let me know and we may be able to custom build it for you to rent from Lost and Found! Welcome to the team, Chip!
