The BEST wedding photography team
We worked with Jake & Anna for both our wedding, and our engagement photos, and I have never once looked back. They captured our special day absolutely beautifully, and were a dream to work with, from start to finish. When we were originally choosing a wedding photographer, we actually didn’t know that we wanted film (or some hybrid of) photography. After countless hours of research, we landed on film for its timelessness, and the beautiful color and softness that it brings to photos. We interviewed multiple photographers, but knew immediately after our first meeting that Jake & Anna were “the ones!” They are masters of their craft, producing consistently beautiful photos time and time again, but they are so much more than that. We chose them because we fell in love with their hearts, and their unique passion for encouraging and supporting their couples in their lives and in their marriages.
As you probably know, wedding planning can be an extremely stressful time. For us, this was compounded by the fact that we were planning a wedding during COVID, and I was in medical school. Jake & Anna were the vendors that we never had to worry about. They remained calm, professional, and supportive throughout the entire process. They were extremely organized, easy to communicate with, and made our day better than it would’ve been without them. They’re not just amazing photographers, but just incredible people who we could trust, go to for advice, and who supported us endlessly. We would choose them time and time again, and are so grateful that our paths crossed!

Sweetlife Photography's reply:You guyyyss!! :-) Seriously the sweetest review and it means the world to hear such kindness from you two! Photography aside, it's humbling and inspiring to know that you guys resonated so much with our heart for marriages and the idea that they are supposed to last a lifetime! At the end of the day, our true dream is that our work and our time with our couples would be more about encouraging sweet marriages like yours than it is about the photos we create. But pretty photos sure do help haha! We love you guys and are continually grateful we got to work with you and witness your incredible love story! Keep in touch!

Dream Wedding Photographers!
My husband and I booked Sweetlife Photography for our wedding in October 2020. I had previously been apart of a wedding that they photographed and loved how creative and personable they were. I crossed my fingers that they would be available for our big day.... We had a special request as we dreamed of a private ceremony. Whoever we had as our photographers would also serve as our witnesses. Jake and Anna had never served as witnesses so this was a fun new experience for them. I could not have thought of a better couple to not only capture every moment but also sign our wedding certificate.
Jake and Anna were so detailed and responsive with all the planning and flexibility needed due to COVID. They were amazing on our wedding day and I love all of the photos. They captured all of the small details, the venue, and multiple angles of all of the special moments. We also loved the first look pictures and the timeline they were able to create of our ceremony with pictures.
After the ceremony, they joined us at our dinner party for a little while to ensure that we got photos with our guests. They made sure that we had an image of every moment throughout the day! They also were very good about communicating when we could get images, a sneak peek and also have since followed up with social posts and sharing our wedding photos.
If I ever need a photographer for another event or special moment, I will for sure be booking Sweetlife with Jake and Anna!Sent on 02/16/2021
Sweetlife Photography's reply:Des & Jason, we can't even describe what an honor is was to be your ONLY ceremony witnesses and get to sign your marriage license! With nearly 200 weddings under our belt, that was a first for us and will always be an incredibly special career highlight for us. We absolutely LOVED your sweet wedding day, intimate ceremony (and all the sweet tears during your vows!), and celebrating the evening with your closest friends. What a joy to be your photographers! We hope it was the first of many times getting to work together :-)

Sweetlife Photography is the best!
Jake and Anna were one of our favorite, if not our our favorite , decision we made during the overwhelming search for wedding vendors. Not only do they produce the most beautiful photographs, Jake and Anna are incredibly kind and helpful, and eased our way during the entire process of working with them. Their experience and network in the wedding industry allowed Jake and Anna to provide us great advice and recommendations for those overwhelming decisions, and, most importantly, the necessary structure to our wedding day. Jake and Anna are undoubtedly skilled in their craft, professional, responsive and timely, all while making us feel like close friends as they captured the most meaningful moments of our lives. We are so blessed to have such breathtaking photographs to remember our special day. We recommend Sweetlife Photography to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience and memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Jake and Anna! Jaime and Abe :)Sent on 03/09/2020
Sweetlife Photography's reply:Jaime, we absolutely loved getting to work with you and Abe! We loved witnessing your God-centered relationship throughout your wedding day, and it was such a joy to be your photographers. And congrats on that sweet new baby of yours! You guys didn't waste any time, did you? ;-) Haha! Love his name--Hi Howie!
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
Jake and Anna are amazing, and bring professionalism and artistry to every event they shoot here at the vineyard. I love working with them, and the photographs are always amazing!
Jake & Anna are a killer team that everyone should hire. Not only are they one of the sweetest couples I know, they are incredibly talented and offer something that is rare: They are a package deal! Most photographers come with a second shooter - which is great solution to needing another set of eyes with a camera in hand! But with Jake & Anna, you get two professionals that work amazingly well together, have immeasurable experience with each other and are so easy to work with. I have had the pleasure of doing projects with them and they set my heart at ease every time because their work is truly more than you could ever hope for. They shoot film & digital - their film reels are always to die for! I am not kidding when I say they are my favorite husband and wife photography team, they are worth every penny.
