I always knew that pictures would be one of the most important aspects of my wedding, so choosing a photographer was going to be one of THE most important decisions I had to make. I knew I wanted a classic look, but not the stuffy boring generic photos that so many wedding photographers provide. I wanted classic, but with an artsy/modern/fun look – basically just capturing our “joy and happiness.” So I began the search within the Orlando area, but soon became frustrated. The problem was that most photographers were already booked up since we had a short engagement. Additionally, I was finding it more and more common that what was presented on a vendor’s website, was not actually all the facts or "total" costs.
My cousin (who is a photographer herself but who was in my bridal party) had recommended that I find a photographer who works in “natural light,” as she knew that was a beautiful style for photos. I stumbled across Jenn Hopkins Photography online through a search for natural light and instantly LOVED her work on her website. From what I saw on her blog, I was definitely impressed. We emailed and she was quick to respond – she was very straightforward and no-nonsense. I asked her a ton of background questions (which she quickly and gracefully answered) and she also provided me some examples of full-wedding packages that she had shot so I could have a better feel for her wedding work. I will note that her contract and pricing were truly fair and she tailored a package to meet my exact needs. Some of the things I really liked were that 1) I was able to book a second shooter, 2) Jenn traveled from Jacksonville to Orlando and did not charge a travel fee, 3) my package included the entire CD of images, and most of all… 4) Jenn provided unlimited wedding day coverage (she was there from hair/makeup until the final send-off.) Through the planning process, we were able to talk via email and phone conversations to develop a written timeline for the wedding day and reception, and a list of photos we wanted to accomplish. We were also able to talk through some specific details such as accommodating my special-needs brother, and coordinating all of the stepparent relationships. Jenn also told me that she has a background in event planning, which makes for a great combo.
On the day of the wedding, Jenn and her second shooter were on time and where they needed to be, and continued to be well-organized throughout the day. She made sure to get all of the “detail” photos I wanted and went completely out of her way to take photos in different places and different settings - Jenn took a TON of photos. She made everyone feel comfortable and at ease through the process as well – no pressure. Jenn was a trooper and made it through a long day. I appreciate her and her second shooter’s commitment and work ethic!! Jenn also abided by our contract, and we were not stuck waiting around for the photos – they came within the established timeframe. This is important because I’ve heard horror stories from friends that don’t get their photos for a year! And….the photos look soooooooo amazing!!! I’m very happy with how they turned out and it definitely captures the feel I was looking for. I’m happy that my husband and I get to be part of Jenn’s portfolio of work.
The whole process was super flawless, which made for no-stress wedding planning. Overall, Jenn was super friendly and easy to work with. She also provides amazing customer-service and responsiveness. And you can tell she really loves what she does and cares about each bride and groom. Also, throughout the entire process, Jenn was able to effectively coordinate with our venue and all of our vendors to make the photos look incredible, and overall make our day and evening run smoothly. JENN HOPKINS PHOTOGRAPHY is a great vendor and I highly recommend Jenn’s services – she will not disappoint.
YOU WILL LOOOOOOOVE your PHOTOS (and the experience)!!!

I wanted to wait until receiving my album to write my formal review. My husband and I are overall very happy with Jenn's work for our wedding. Jenn is extremely responsive to email and was very professional throughout the whole process, especially because she has not only conversed with me but both of my parents as well. We ended up choosing to have a second photographer, an option when booking with Jenn, and we are definitely glad we did because I feel like we have a better overview of the day then if it were just one person.
The pictures, both from our engagement session and wedding day, are absolutely beautiful and the wedding album turned out gorgeous as well. It did however take a full 8 weeks to receive our pictures (no sneak peek either) but it was during the busy season in Florida so I understand that, and would rather have waited then to have photos that weren't thoroughly reviewed or edited. We received just under 1000 edited pictures and so choosing a selection for the album was quite tough! It took 9 months from our wedding day to receive the album, but part of that is time we spent choosing pictures and making edits, so I'm sure the timeline varies between clients.
Again, we are very pleased with Jenn's work and would recommend her to others in the future!
Jenn is amazing, she did such an awesome job photographing Kimmie on her big day! Her work is phenomenal & she is a sweetheart, I would definitely recommend her to my clients!
