Perfect combination of fun and professional!
Honestly, Jeff was the only photographer we needed to meet with. My husband and I are not “picture people” so it was important to us to find someone who would make us comfortable. Jeff was that person. From the first meeting at his home office, he made us feel relaxed, like we’ve been friends forever and we literally signed a contract right there! It goes without saying that during these COVID times, we ended up changing our plans but Jeff was so accommodating and flexible. On our wedding day, he kept us smiling and laughing, getting in bridal party/family pictures quickly so we could enjoy quality time with our family. Then to make us love him even more, he texted us teasers the same night as our wedding AND had all of our pictures ready for us within a week! He gave us beautiful photos and amazing memories that we are forever grateful for!Sent on 08/10/2020

From the moment we got off the phone from our initial conversation with Jeff, we knew we had found our photographer. We never could have imagined how right our instincts were. The last thing we could have imagined was that we would be planning our wedding during a pandemic, but Jeff was the first one to reach out to us months before our big day. He was not only incredibly supportive and flexible during all of our changes, but he gave us the most beautiful images to remember our wedding day. Our guests could not stop raving over how wonderful he had been with our flower girl, his humor throughout the day and how he was able to really see the best angles and positions in the moment. Not only is his talent evident by his beautiful photography but it is equally matched by who he is as a person. He is a calming presence who cares deeply about his clients and their photos, something we truly appreciated as he was the person we spent the majorityof our day with. We would recommend him to anyone and he is the only person we will trust to capture our family moments in the future.Sent on 08/13/2020

Professionalism and excellence to capture your joyful day!
If you are reading this review, you are likely in the process of identifying a photographer for a special event. I hope that this review helps convince you that hiring J. Foley Photography is the right choice.
I am a very happy return customer to J. Foley Photography. Jeff has conducted two photo shoots for me and in December 2019 my wife and I hired him for our wedding. The wedding was a perfect day for us and with thanks to Jeff, we have gorgeous photographs to commemorate the day.
There are several key reasons why I recommend J. Foley Photography without any reservation. First, Jeff has outstanding technical skills. You will be absolutely thrilled with the beauty of his photographs. His expertise and years of experience all combine to frame gorgeous shots that are both timeless and beautiful.
Secondly, unless you are a fashion model most of us are not used to having our photograph taken. Jeff has a wonderful personality and he will put even your most camera-shy guest at ease! It is through his professional and relatable interactions with his subjects that he is able to draw out genuine and joyful photographs. There are other photographers who also have good technical skills, but none have Jeff’s winning personality and keen eye. If you are considering Jeff for a wedding this is really important as you’ll be spending more time with him than anyone else at the wedding - except for your spouse. You want to have someone with you that is easy and fun to be around.
Jeff is reliable and professional. From your first meeting with Jeff he will work with you to ensure that you are approaching your event in a planful manner – making sure that he knows the flow of your event, who to take photographs of, etc. He clearly has an excellent reputation with the other professionals that we worked with (such as the makeup artist and the wedding venue) – this all contributed to our day running smoothly and without any stress.
I will also add that my bride and I are a gay couple. Jeff was wonderful with us – he genuinely celebrated and affirmed our marriage which is not something all vendors do with sincerity.
