    Truly a dream come true!

    Working with Amber and Megan with Jim Kennedy Photography was truly a dream come true. Not only are they incredibly talented and professional but you will also fall in love with their spunky and kind personalities. They're organized and punctual which, as wedding planners, we cannot explain how crucial this is. Photographers are one of the most valuable vendors at events and these girls can be trusted to get the job done. They had graceful control of our detailed timeline and moved throughout the event effortlessly. Now, to fast forward to their work.... WOW! We were blown away with not only the quality of their pictures but also the priceless moments they captured. It's like, they just know when and where to be at throughout the day. Both our clients, as well as ourselves, are forever grateful for the wonderful experience with Megan and Amber. We are beyond eager to work with Jim Kennedy photography in the near future!

    Amazing Team!

    Jim and his team were amazing! They made us feel so comfortable throughout so I know our wedding photos will turn out beautiful! He is beyond experienced, so we fully trusted to take his direction and rolled with it!

    Jim sent us a tease of some incredible photos the morning after the wedding and we could not be more excited to see the rest! If you are lucky enough that Jim is available on your wedding date, hire him immediately!

    BEST photographers ever.

    If you are reading these reviews, believe me when I say LOOK NO FURTHER and book Jim Kennedy Photographers for your wedding!! Jim shot our engagement shoot and September 2022 wedding and we are so incredibly happy with how the photos came out. My husband and I had never taken professional photos before and were nervous going into our engagement shoot - I was praying for just one good photo! Jim made us feel SO comfortable and we had a blast running around the beach snapping shots. I ended up with so many that I love I had to made a whole album out of them! After such a good experience with engagement photos, we were excited to take pictures again on our wedding day. Jim & team are professional, give great instruction, and they are fast! They know what they are doing and my husband and I were able to get our family/wedding party photos done quickly and have some precious time together before the ceremony. I cannot recommend Jim enough - I will hire him again any time I need photography in the future!

    Friendly and Talented Team!

    Jim and his team were laid back, creative, and what was so important to us was during such a personal experience they were kind and easy going! They didn't forget any details and we felt so comfortable being with them on our special day. We got a beautiful sneak peak the morning after our wedding, and tons more just a couple days later! We were so happy with the package we got as we got digitals of all of our photos. What I loved the most was our photos were a mixture of portraits/more artistic, while getting plenty of candids and real moments. We would choose Jim all over again and love to look through and relive our day through the photos! Can't wait to see our video, no doubt in our minds it will be amazing!

    Jim Kennedy Photographers's reply:

    Eleni,

    Thank you so much for the kind words. We loved being a part of your special day. It really means so much to us when couples choose us to capture their wedding.

    Amazing Experience - Highly Recommend

    Working with Cheryl & Jim was the best! They were organized, responsive and very accommodating to any changes. Cheryl was amazing on the day. The quality of photos, the amount of photos and the way she put everyone at ease was great. I would highly recommend them for any photography needs. You won't be disappointed!

    AMAZING Experience!!!

    Jim was hands down the main reason why my wedding day went so smoothly. He filled the role of the planner by keeping everyone on track and on schedule. We was so amazing to work with. We have family and friends that attended the wedding that rave about how wonderful he was. I am SO thankful we hired him. He is professional, personable and so nice. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you Jim for everything. You made my wedding day so enjoyable! I also received my photos back within days :)

    JKP - Megan + team were AMAZING!

    I am so happy that we chose to work with Jim and his team for our wedding this April! Jim was great to work with in advance of our wedding. He was prompt, friendly, professional, happy to jump on calls to chat through day of planning, and was flexible with the package that we needed for both photo and video. Megan shot our wedding and she was such a joy to work with! She made the day fun and relaxing and put my husband and I at ease. My family also recognized how professional and great Megan and her whole team were to work with. This team is truly professional and our big day was made so much easier by working with them!

    Megan is one of the best photographers. She captured the best moments for my engagement and wedding photos. Megan knows exactly what you want without you telling her anything. She鈥檚 AMAZING! We were extremely happy with her and our photos :).

    JKP (Megan) will be at every life event for us

    This review is LOOOONGGG over due - we got married in April at the Ritz Carlton at Laguna and found Jim Kennedy Photographer through our wedding planner! We looked through his amazing book of photos and decided to work with one of his photographers Megan for our big day. From the moment she walked in she was radiating sunshine and made me, my husband, and friends and family feel so comfortable taking photos! (trust me this is the most important thing when it comes to photography). We had such a great time working with her and our photos are proof - they are all stunning, like so stunning. She had a great preview for us ready just a few days after our wedding and all photos done a few weeks after our big day! Trust me you are picking wrong if you choose not work with her, Megan you are truly wonderful and we can't wait to work with you again soon!!! Love, the Southards

    Photos and Video to Treasure for a Lifetime

    Thank you to Amber and Megan for the fabulous wedding photos! Every single one of the pictures turned out beautifully. They are full of color, and truly represented our wedding, family, and friends. Every single one was taken and edited with care. We have received COUNTLESS compliments from family and friends on how stunning the photos are. Amber and Megan took the time on our wedding day to capture our true essence, and not just canned shots that they had taken hundreds of time before. We also contracted for our videographer through JKP. He and the photography team worked seamlessly together. He also showed up early to take video before he was paid to do so. Thank you JKP for photos and videos I will treasure forever!

    The best of the best!

    Amber and Jim were true professionals! They are a dream team and captured our day so well. We got married during COVID times and every time our plans changed, it was no problem and they could capture and tell the story of the day whatever it ended up looking like. They gave gentle and helpful posing tips to make us look like we were models. Additionally, their knowledge of our venue made for incredible photos and made the day flow flawlessly. They captured the whole day so well, but positioned themselves in such a way during events like the ceremony or dances, that I didn't even know they were there, but the perspective of the moments they captured were beautiful. We will cherish these photos forever!

    Jim Kennedy Photographers's reply:

    Lauren,

    Thank you so much for the kind words. We loved every minute of your day. It felt amazing to be able to capture such a beautiful wedding during these crazy times.
