Jen was exactly who I was looking for and exactly who I never expected to find! She is flexible, professional, fun, enthusiastic, and completely easy to work with. She takes great portraits and she has an amazing eye for capturing the wonderful little moments that we usually wouldn’t notice otherwise. I was on a budget for my wedding, but I knew I wanted the best photos we could afford. The photos she produced are worth every penny. They are gorgeous and looking at them feels like reliving the wonderful day and all of its best parts! I honestly can’t say enough about Jen. She’s so cool and sweet and you can really tell how much she loves her work. I truly picked the best woman for the job. I hope to work with her again!Sent on 01/06/2020

5-Stars, Two Thumbs Up — the BEST photographer for the job
Words can't fully describe how amazing the experience has been from start to finish. Folks, if you need someone to capture a moment as precious and (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime time as a wedding, Jen is THE photographer for the job.Sent on 06/27/2019
Jen’s talent and professionalism are absolutely outstanding. Both my husband and I work in creative fields, making us extra tough critics when researching photographers for our wedding… we found Jen’s page and both immediately said “::gasp:: we have to have her!!!” We fell in love with Jen’s ability to capture unique shots that truly tell a story about that specific moment in time and the full say, we also were so impressed with how she handles light and shadows. During our initial conversations, she was attentive and informative, responding quickly with perfect detail. She did her homework researching the ceremony and reception locations beforehand and helped us iron out and confirm timing for photos on our schedule.
Jen and her assistant were both punctual and professional on the day of our wedding, dividing and conquering the before shots and working together with ease to reign in our wedding party (which was like herding tipsy cats). Jen shoots fast — which is such an amazing quality for a wedding photographer and one you will appreciate! She captured the various groupings of family, bridal party, couples, kids, etc., quickly and simply which kept us AHEAD of schedule and gave us some flex time to just enjoy each other and some drinks — oh, and she captured all of these relaxed/fun/unexpected moments too.
Moving to the reception; our wedding was big (210 ppl), but very personalized, our guests were fun-loving, dancing-machines and our band was loud and energetic — Jen captured all of these emotions and people perfectly. Many guests described her as ’ninja-like’ the way she quietly and subtly worked the room, clicking high, low and at different angles — her very relaxed, stealthiness resulted in so many stellar, candid shots that truly captured the raw emotion of each moment — she is a well-oiled machine.
Jen is a troubleshooter; turning the very difficult lighting inside the bridal suite into an opportunity to turn track lighting into spotlights. Jen is fun-loving and flexible; she went along with and even loved my crazy idea to light my bouquet on fire and rolled along with my need to take photos while driving a golf cart and drinking champagne with 4-5 bridesmaids hanging on for dear life.
When we received our photos after the wedding, I’m not exaggerating when I say we laughed, we cried, we squealed, and relived every - single - moment with each of the BEAUTIFUL images she delivered. Who needs a video when you have such emotion-packed, story-telling, high-quality, elegant and polished photos?!
Jen is pure talent and an absolute gem to experience your wedding day with. I will hire her again the next chance I get and will follow her captivating photography as a huge advocate and fan for life.

Jen is wonderful! The photos turned out beautifully and beyond expected! Everyone loves the photos. They are clean and well balanced, some touching moments were captured, very good portraits! Our wedding was on a budget but Jen tailored the hours and it works out perfectly. She arrived early and started working as soon as she arrived. She asked about our preference in advance and took photos on a tight schedule. She's very easy to work with, I highly recommend her!Sent on 08/22/2018
