How to describe Jody...In a word she was our "dream come true" photographer. We couldn't be happier with Jody's work, both during the wedding, and in terms of the end product. On the wedding day, Jody was professional yet warm, thoughtful, amenable to requests, she absolutely never interfered or was intrusive, and was a calming presence. She has a wonderful ability to put you at ease and bring a smile to your face. Her wonderful attitude certainly added to the day, and it's very clear that she has a great deal of experience and is an expert at her trade. And to top it off, she took beautiful pictures that I will enjoy for the rest of my life. I'm sure there are many options out there, but we could not recommend Jody any more - she's just the complete package and of exceptional character.

Jody was so collaborative and wonderful when photographing our wedding. She worked with us to help find a package that fit our financial needs and was so responsive as questions came up throughout the process. She took time to meet with us and provide advice about the day-of, and had us over to her house for a slideshow to view the final product. Could not recommend her more readily!!

Did a spectacular job, at the ceremony and at the party. Captured some great moments. So glad that we used Holman Photography!!

Jody is very experienced, professional, personable and accommodating.
She makes you feel comfortable and not at all intrusive in the execution of your event. She has an excellent eye for what your vision would be on your special day. She adds special touches that Jody envisions to enhance your ideas but will work with you in every detail that you desire.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jody. I planned a surprise trip across the country to San Francisco for myself and my partner of 12 years to get married and she was there every step of the way giving me information about scenery and also providing some information for places to see while we were there. She listened to my needs and went above and beyond to meet them. By the time the months of planning was over and the big day had arrived, I felt like we were old friends. She checked in with us throughout the day to make sure we were getting the shots we desired and she kept our expectations in order by advising us on timing and the best way to maximize the shots we wanted. The pictures were amazing and she delivered on her promises timely. She captured a very important day for us and we'd use her over and over for all of our events if we lived in San Francisco!!!

Jody's photos are amazing - she made everyone look good from the 2 year old to the 97 year old. She captured the spirit and happiness of our event. She was responsive and we received photos the next day to remind us of a great night - and the final album is gorgeous.Sent on 02/07/2017

Jody has been wonderful to work with! She has a wonderful eye and captured some moments that were so special for us. We have been able to feel the joy of our wedding each time we look at her terrific photos!

We found Jody on the internet and dropped her an email to inquire about her availability and willingness to take pictures of our wedding. We needed just a few hours, not the full package. She promptly replied that she would be interested. We arranged to meet, and without any pressure, we readily signed a contract. She showed up on time (actually early!), was very gracious and professional. She was personable, yet she was so unobtrusive, that we hardly knew she was there! The pictures were great, some spectacular. After the event, we received the pictures as planned. We have just great words for Jody, and we will recommend her to anyone wanting a personable and skilled photographer for an event.Sent on 01/27/2014

Jody was wonderful- she was flawless in that she kept things calm, fun, and stress free. She offered us sneak peek at our photos shortly after the wedding and they are amazing. We couldn't have made a better choice in a photographer. Highly recommended!
Claire · Married on 06/23/2012
It was a pleasure to work with Jody! She captured our wedding wonderfully and helped make us comfortable and even more excited than we already were. She was easy to work with and listened to and helped guide us through the photography process. On the day of the event, having her around felt only natural.

Jody did an amazing job as a photographer – being a same sex couple from the moment that we met with Jody she embraced us as a couple and did not think the idea of a same-sex wedding was odd or unusual. The day of our special event she exceeded our expectations but getting truly candid shots and we did not even realize she was there – then meeting with her afterwards in her amazing home studio to see her work, it just left us speechless – all for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend her and be more than willing to share the work she did for our event. - Les & RafaelSent on 12/31/2011

Jody was WONDERFUL to work with! She was exactly the kind of photographer we were looking for..... flexible, easy going, and artistic, just to name a few. She let us be ourselves and captured many special moments. Our photos turned out beautifully and were ready in only one month! Jody also gave us all of the digital copies, something we noticed most photographers make you pay for. We highly recommend her for any wedding or special occasion.
Watson · Married on 08/07/2011
We did a lot of research before selecting our photographer, and Jody met every requirement we came up with. She understood our vision, and captured the spirit of each moment perfectly. She was fun and relaxed, and blended into the mix of people so that we really didn't notice having our picture taken constantly. Every single shot was included in our package, so we could immediately upload our favorites to share with friends and family. She also gave us gifts (I won't spoil the surprise and say what) that allowed us to have beautiful hard copies of some of the best shots before we make up our minds (which is going to take a long time). Highly recommend.

The photos are amazing!!!!! We loved everyone, in fact I was crying looking at them. We were both blown away. You really captured their personalities and their relationship. We will cherish them forever.
Chelsea · Married on 06/18/2011
Wow, what a spectacular lady with great professionalism and a huge smile. Loved doing business with her and she made my daughter feel comfortable and open which made for great pictures. I will definitely be calling her for my family photo's in the future!
Stefanie · Married on 06/01/2011
Jody captured moments in her photography that we didn't know were there with a lightness, attention to detail and a joy that came through in new-baby photos that we'll have for a lifetime. Thanks, Jody!

Jody is the most amazing wedding photographer EVER. There were so many incredible pictures – too many to choose from so we ordered them all! Our pictures were truly pieces of art, not just photos. Jody was very professional and walked through what was important to us before the wedding so she was sure to capture all the shots we wanted. She was great with the parents and grandparents. So many of my friends have said to me “I wish I knew your photographer when we got married, she did such an unbelievable job”. Her photojournalist style captured our love in every picture and documented the joy in our family and friends who celebrated with us.
Shannon · Married on 07/10/2010
Jody is tremendously talented and simply a pleasure to work with. We were married in the woods and she readily adapted to all settings--live bands and dancing to serene moments of joy and reflection-- as well as to a host of children in motion. Her photographs were not only beautiful, but told a magical story which enhances our memories. Jody's presence was amazing and never intrusive. She had the gift of being in the right place at the right time without us noticing! In addition, by the end of all events, our guests wanted to be friends with her too! Her keen eye, gift at putting the story together visually and her wonderful energy make Jody a dream to work with!

Anticipates your needs and allows for everyone to feel comfortable which makes for more natural photos. We love our photos and have used other services before which were not nearly as good.
Josh · Married on 09/06/2009
Jody Webster is the perfect combination of professional and friendly. She turned my wife and my wedding weekend into a fairytale to remember. She captured the most beautiful pictures, and I recommend her work to all of my friends who are getting married !
Kerri · Married on 09/06/2009
Jody should be your top choice for wedding photography! She takes the most amazing pictures and captures the little details. She made me feel like a movie star and every picture was perfect!
Keith · Married on 09/05/2009
We worked with Jody for our engagement photos. From beginning to end she was professional, fun, energetic and knew her stuff! We wanted the photos to be outdoors in Tilden Park in Berkeley. She was willing to travel to us and met us in the Park. From there we explored the area for the best options. Jody was patient and got us to be relaxed and ourselves - which really came through in the photos. It was nice because she showed us the shots as we went along - so we could change thigns up if we wanted. In less than a week we received a CD of all our photos in a the mail - both raw photos and the touched up ones. I would highly recommend Jody to any potential customer!
Chris · Married on 09/05/2009
#1 She made me look good in our photo's which is most important.
#2 She made my partner look great which is important.
#3 She had a lot of great ideas in regards to scenery where we had the photo shoot. These great ideas came across in the final photo's.
#4 She is professional, but more importantly easy to get along with which put me at ease...this too came across in the final product.
#5 Quick turn around on finished product...no one wants to wait!
