Jennifer Skog was the first vendor that we booked for our wedding. When I saw her work, I knew instantly that she was the photographer for us! Our couture engagement shoot (with Maria Chang of PMA) was so much fun, and our wedding photos were amazing!
The Skog Team consisted of Jen and her brother Rob. They both have an eye for beautiful lighting, detail, and just a bit of edginess. They captured our wedding in a glamorous photo-journalistic style, as well as taking the standard family portraits. We felt at ease with them and are very, very pleased with the results.
The packages are fairly pricey, but photography was a priority for us, and she was definitely worth every penny.
Love Jen. Love her attitude. Love her mad skills. Love everything she does.
Jen is in one word: FABULOUS!
I knew I wanted her as my photographer before we even had our venue booked. It's really difficult to write her a review because her work speaks for itself. She is absolutely the BEST you will find. While there are so many great wedding photographers out there, I have yet to find one who's work is so consistently stunning.
Why is she so different? To me, most "good" wedding photographers can capture the joy and emotion on your wedding day. That's because weddings are just naturally filled with with lots of joy and emotion and if you are decent at what you do, you will be able to capture those moments. BUT, there are very few photographers that can make everyone look their best in pictures. I personally think I am very unphotogenic. I SERIOUSLY hate about 99% of pictures of myself. My biggest fear for my wedding was that I would plan and prepare, and do all I could do, and then look back at the pictures and think, "ugh...I hate how I look in my wedding pictures." That's why I knew I needed Jen, because she is somehow able to make people look their best. No, she's not a magician, I am not going transform into Angelina Jolie, but she does know how to capture people at their best angles and at the perfect moment. That was the number one priority to me. Her style is also exactly what I wanted, a perfect balance of posed and candid. Her pictures are so amazingly romantic and sultry. Aside from her beautiful work, she's also such a pleasure to work with. She's on time, professional, and organized. She has a hilarious personality that puts you at ease. Her brother, Rob, who shot the wedding with her is fantastic, too. He captured so many great shots during the wedding!
While we were on a very tight budget for the wedding, there was one thing that I did not hesitate to splurge on, and that was photography. I knew I could live without fancy linens, or extravagant florals. All of that would only last one day. But you will look at your wedding photos for the rest of your life, and I wanted the best we could possibly get. Jen is definitely worth the investment!
Jennifer was one of the photographers recommended to us by our wedding coordinator, Crystal Lequang of Amazae Special Events. We decided to go with someone else, but as fate will have it, she works exclusively with our wedding make-up artist Maria Chang of Professional Make-Up Artistry for couture boudoir shoots. Being in love with Maria, I just booked a couture shoot without even meeting Jen.
I told Jen that I am very attached to my wedding dress, and asked if I could sneak it in as one of my outfits ... even though it's not really a boudoir outfit. She agreed, so in addition to the boudoir, I basically had a couture bridal shoot as well!
On the day of the photo shoot, I met Jen and immediately felt very comfortable with her. She is super funny and easy going. She taught me how to pose, and made me laugh the entire time. Jen and Maria are really a fantastic team to work with!
When I got my teaser shots, my husband and I were floored! It took a few moments to absorb how amazing the pictures turned out. The bridal pictures were more high fashion than traditional pictures, which is what I wanted since I already have wedding pictures. And the boudoir pictures were way more than I hoped for - Jen and Maria can make you look good with very little clothes!
I think every woman should have beautiful, sexy, and tasteful pictures of herself, and I highly recommend Jen to do them! Thank you Jen!
Jennifer Skog is a true artist who you will feel immediately comfortable with. She will make your wedding a piece of art. Her vision is unique, edgy, and sexy - entirely non-traditional which was exactly what we were looking for. Jennifer was open to whatever ideas we had about locations for our engagement shoot and wedding shoots but also had tons of her own ideas. We ended up basically going to all the locations and the photos are the best I've ever had in my life. I would recommend Jennifer Skog in a heartbeat.
Jen did our engagement pictures (with 3 outfit changes and 3 locations) and wedding photos, and she was worth every single penny!!!! All pictures turned out even better than I could have ever imagined.
Let's be honest, most of us aren't used to being photographed professionally, and although, models make it look easy to pose... it's actually pretty difficult! Jen was awesome with setting us up for shots, and she was patient with us. She was able to make a few weeds next to a building look like we were in a field of wheat. She also made a small area of a park in SF look like a forest! She's absolutely amazing.
On the day of the wedding, Jen was on top of things. She was able to locate who she needed for pictures, went through the crazy family/relatives/etc. photo session quick and painless, and she was an absolute joy and so fun to work with! I had guests ask me on the wedding night who my photographer was, so needless to say, after I sent a sample of pictures Jen took of the day, I received even more requests for her contact information.
I would recommend Jen to everyone and anyone who wants someone who is very professional, creates high-end fashion looking shots, knows and only shoots your 'best' angles, and just all around FUN to be around!
Jennifer did our engagement portraits and photographed our wedding. She was a joy to work with and has a really gifted eye. We love and cherish the countless beautiful photos she captured for us and are so glad we were able to work with her!
