I have been waiting to submit a review for Jeff this entire month after my wedding because even though I pride myself on my use of words, I could not for the life of me figure out how to do him and his talent justice. The photographer was one of the most important professionals for us to decide on, as my husband (still not used to that!) and I believe the memories of our day will live on in the photographs. From the second we met him and Jeanette, we knew we made the right choice.Sent on 11/15/2018
Jeff is passionate, professional, thorough, talented, and genuinely cares for his clients. He took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple so that he could document our day in a way that truly reflected us and our relationship (which included a legendary shot with a soccer ball). His attention to detail and organization when creating our timeline for the day was remarkable, and was truly the guiding force behind what our day looked like. If you know me, you know I am notoriously late for every single thing in life, but because of Jeff, I was actually ready EARLY and had a rare opportunity to relax and laugh with my favorite people before the ceremony began. The only thing I would not budge on for the day was not doing a first look; I wanted the first time my husband saw me to be while walking down the aisle. While this is not ideal for photography purposes because of fading sunlight and time crunch, Jeff respected my wishes and masterfully worked around it, managing to keep me hidden from my husband-to-be for pre-ceremony photo shoots in the process.
One of the most notable qualities of Jeff is his presence. He never once gave off a feeling of being rushed or stressed. From the moment he arrived, he was calming and always up for a laugh. I'm terrible when it comes to being in serious pictures, especially by myself, but as the bride, it's kind of a necessity. He engaged me in conversations, laughter, and questions that guided me through those awkward, necessary photos, and they ended up being some of my favorites from the getting ready segment. He gave us breaks between shots after the ceremony so I could eat my coveted mac and cheese and pigs in a blanket, rather than rushing us through the photographs. And when it came time for the reception, he was almost unseen, while still managing to capture the emotion and fun of the day and evening. I've always been bothered at weddings I've attended by photographers who get right up in your face and try and get you to do certain poses while enjoying yourself. Jeff didn't do any of that; he just seemed to flow with everyone and the direction the night took.
Most people we know had to wait months to receive their wedding photographs. Jeff is so dedicated to his work that even with the other events he was working on, we received our photographs in LESS THAN THREE WEEKS! And there were hundreds of them, every single one perfect in its own way. Each person we shared the photographs with has expressed how beautiful they are and gushed about the quality. Choosing photos for the book from Jeff and our canvas print is going to be the challenge of the century, but we were also given a USB personalized with our photo that contains all 900+ photos so we will always have each memory to look back on and make prints of down the line. Jeff is the embodiment of the ideal wedding photographer, a genuine person, and a friend. I'm disappointed not to be able to talk to or see him, that's the type of relationship he forms with his clients. I can't wait for other milestones in our marriage so we can have Jeff document them!

From the time I saw the photos Jeff took for a friend's wedding, I knew he would be a contender to photograph our wedding (even before we were engaged!). He was the first and last phone call I made when searching for photographers. I booked him during our initial conversation and could not be happier with our decision. My husband was less than thrilled about taking engagement photos but Jeff picked an amazing location and was so easy to work with that after the session, my husband might have said he had fun! Our engagement photos were so beautiful and creative, we used them on our save the dates AND our wedding invitations. I knew Jeff would do a wonderful job photographing our wedding but I received our wedding photos last night (less than 2 weeks after our wedding, mind you) and I have not stopped looking at them since. I was completely blown away by how amazing they all turned out. Your wedding day passes by in such a blur and looking through the photos allows you to re-live that day and experience all moments you may have missed. Jeff is so kind, easy-going and fun that he fit right in on our wedding day, like we've known him for years. We received many compliments on the photos he took, but also about how wonderful he was to be around. We would recommend him and the rest of the staff at J.Foley Photography in heartbeat!Sent on 12/11/2018

A night to remember!
From the beginning Jeff felt like family to us and made our decision even easier! He was very professional and made us feel very comfortable the entire time. He was very efficient with getting pictures back to us in a very short time. Although we expected amazing photos from him, seeing is past work, he completely blew us out of the water with our photos. They are not just photos to us, it tells a story on how our night went and were reminded on our amazing our wedding was! Jeff and Jamie we can’t thank you enough for the time you put into editing our photos and making them even more amazing! We are so so so happy we chose j.foley photography!!Sent on 11/10/2018
