Jenna Marie is one of the most talented wedding photographers in the business and was, hands down, our best wedding investment!!! She is unbelievably talented and truly was a dream to work with. My husband and I were positively floored when we received our wedding photos last night… They were so magical, so dreamy, and they so perfectly captured every moment of our big day. It felt like we were re-living our entire wedding! (To top it off, the pictures arrived a mere month after the big day. Incredible!) Jenna could not have been sweeter, more accommodating, or easier to work with. My husband and I live across the country and, during our engagement, were only together in California for a short window of time in December. Even with the craziness of the holiday season, Jenna was able to squeeze us in for a gorgeous sunset engagement session. This summer, our wedding was a full-day event, and Jenna was incredibly kind about accommodating our timeline with a split session. Jenna is phenomenal at what she does. It is impossible to capture in words how grateful I am to her for her beautiful work; she turned a perfect day into tangible memories that my husband and I will cherish for a lifetime. Hire Jenna. You won’t regret it!!

I really cannot say enough nice things about Jenna. She is so talented, friendly, and easy to work with. During the planning process, she was super responsive and happy to answer all of my questions. She did a great job making us feel comfortable during our engagement shoot, and she was a calming, fun presence on our wedding day. I loved our engagement photos and I'm even more obsessed with the pictures from our wedding - I can't stop looking at them. Our posed couple & family portraits are great (and she got those done super fast, while delicately handling some awkward family dynamics), but the candid photos taking during our wedding are where she really shines. She and our second shooter captured so many lovely little moments of our wedding day without us even realizing it (like me with my head thrown back laughing during our first dance, my MOH & I high-fiving after signing our marriage license, my bridesmaids taking selfies in the bathroom while we were getting ready, my mom giving me one last tear-filled look before our ceremony). She also had our photo proofs to us within a month of our wedding day. Both my husband and I are so impressed with the natural, candid, refined nature of Jenna's work. Hiring her was definitely one of our better wedding-planning decisions.

I don't even know where to start when talking about our experience while working with Jenna. After what felt like many months of looking for the "right" photographer to take our engagement photos, I stumbled upon some of Jenna's work and I was immediately blown away. From the moment I reached out to Jenna for more information, she was responsive, flexible and delicately answered every single one of my crazy questions. When the day finally came for our session, she arrived early with the biggest smile on her face and insisted that we hug right off the bat. Right away I felt like I had known her for years and I feel as though it showed in our pictures.
Jenna was able to capture my vision for our engagements (which included way too many props), portray the fun loving relationship that my fiancé and I share and to make it even sweeter, she worked so patiently with us while we incorporated our 8 year old Puggle into the pictures. She made every moment feel so warm and comfortable and we were both taken back when we received our edited photos about two weeks later. Jenna has such an incredible talent and it shows in every photo that she has not only taken of us but of others. I feel so blessed that I was able to find Jenna and that she will always be part of this special time in our lives. I absolutely can't recommend Jenna enough and I hope to find many reasons to use her services in the future!

Jenna is amazing!! She is very professional and very talented. She takes amazing photos! She and her team were able to capture all moments of our special day. We are so pleased with our pictures! She got our pictures back to us within a few weeks and even send us a USB of our images in the cutest custom packaging!

Jenna was outstanding!! Even through our initial meeting on Skype (my husband and I were living in separate states at the time), I immediately got a sense of her warm personality! She made us feel so comfortable, and listened to what we wanted. My husband and I are definitely not models, so it was much more important that our photos captured our happy-go-lucky personalities and the love we felt on the big day. Jenna accomplished our wish and so much more...we look way better in her photos than we do in real life! The photos really tell the story of the day, and we have gotten so many compliments from friends and family. I can't get enough of them! Plus, she shot so many that we have tons to choose from!!
In preparation of the day, we had everything organized and worked out on a timeline so we got every shot we wanted. She was flexible with her packages to allow us to find one that met and surpassed all of our needs. On the day of, she arrived on time with a wonderful assistant, and my friends and family felt instantly comfortable with both of them. They were professional and fun, and made the long process of taking photos a wonderful experience that flew by. She really captured the best, and I could not recommend her more highly!

We are so happy that Jenna Marie Photography was a part of our wedding! Jenna came highly recommended by our wedding coordinator (whose wedding she also photographed, which was a testimony right there!), and I loved her professional and cheerful style from the start. She provided us with an incredible service at a price range that was very reasonable. We had a blast with her and her assistant at our engagement session. They made us feel incredibly comfortable, especially my camera-shy husband. The engagement photos came back so quickly too - and they were incredible! We knew at that point that we had made a very wise choice.
As for our wedding, Jenna was incredibly responsive and prepared throughout all the preparation and on the day-of. Her calm and positive demeanor was great to be around on wedding day. She and her assistants were very unobtrusive but still managed to capture highlights, random moments, candids, and even steal us away for some dusk photos when the light was perfect. They incorporated the unique landscape and decor of our venue perfectly. And or photos came back just a few weeks after the wedding! We love the photos and couldn't be happier!
Overall, choosing Jenna Marie Photography was one of the very best decisions we made. Jenna and her team are all-stars!

Jenna was everything we could have wanted (and later found out needed) for our photographer. She was calm, organized, creative in her shot choices and most importantly patient. My husband was not comfortable in front of the camera, but she had a way of getting those great shots out of him all while laughing along with us. Jenna did such an amazing job on our engagement photos I didn't think our wedding photos could be much better, but she was truly able to capture the essence of our day by capturing candid shots of us and our guests, shots of our guest table and reception tent when it was all set up. You don't think about wanting these shots later but it really told the story of our day and helps us relive it whenever we scroll through the photos. I would HIGHLY recommend Jenna to anyone and everyone!

I found Jenna because we knew each other in high school and after looking at her portfolio was extremely impressed. We did an engagement session about a year before our wedding and it was so fun. Her and her assistant made us feel extremely comfortable and the pictures turned out to be gorgeous. Our wedding was a few weeks ago so I've only seen a preview, but the the few I've seen are fantastic and her and her assistant were professional, friendly, and really quick on the posed pics (which was huge for my husband!). During the party I didn't notice them at all, which is exactly how we wanted it--I'm expecting some awesome candid shots. Throughout the whole process she was professional, friendly, and a joy to work with. She really listened to what we wanted. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Jenna and Robert are fantastic. I contacted Jenna about being my photographer immediately after getting engaged. She was fortunately available and we began planning. I had a few concerns, and some ideas of what I wanted to be included. Jenna eased my mind on every account, she was willing to do what I wanted and even gave me more and better ideas. Jenna was patient when I was busy, but she was never too busy to respond to me, even when she was out of town. My engagement and wedding pictures are gorgeous. We asked her to make our invitations as well and everyone agreed that they were incredible. My wedding day was fun and relaxed. Jenna and Robert started early and stayed late, they caught a lot of great moments. Jenna is creative and patient. We had four flower girls and two infant ring bearers, so those pictures took a extra measure of grace. Jenna has it all. She even took extra pictures for my family to use as Christmas cards.
We are about to start working on my albums and I am very excited to see the final result. Choosing Jenna Marie Photography is my second favorite wedding decision, (the first is obviously my husband). Thank you Jenna!
Courtney · Married on 09/10/2011
Choosing Jenna as my wedding photographer was the best decision I have ever made (besides marrying my husband of course!)
We actually switched photographers two months before the wedding. Jenna came on board and immediatley put us at ease. Every email was returned promptly, she had great suggestions and patiently answered any questions or concerns I had. She even made a special trip to my area to take our engagement photos!
As a wedding planner I work with different photographers every week. Some good and some not so great. So I can tell you with all confidence that Jenna and her husband are some of the best photographers in the business! They are fun and down to earth and made us feel comfortable from the first moment. Our whole family loved them and kept commenting on how sweet and patient they were during our large family portrait session.
Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life and choosing vendors that you love is so important. They can sometimes make or break your whole planning experience. I couldnt have been happier with Jenna's level of service...AND our pictures were AMAZING!!!! I am beyond grateful to have such beautiful images to remember our wedding...
Thanks Jenna!!! ~ Courtney & Aaron Cargile

Jenna & her husband were amazing photographers for our wedding. They were VERY organized and professional. They were also a pleasure to be around on our wedding day. With all the choas that was surrounding us with our large family they were able to organize the family in a nice, and assertive way. They knew exactly what they were doing! Also, the pictures came out beautiful. I would highly reccomend Jenna and her husband!
Maguire · Married on 07/09/2011
WOW! If I could give Jenna 10 stars I would! She is pretty new to the photography business but you wouldn't be able to tell at all! We picked her as our photographer because she's family, but was probably the most professional vendor we worked with during our wedding planning. She is extremely dependable and organized and her photos are gorgeous! I loved how our photos weren't "posey" and everything felt natural. Her husband is a huge help as well-they make a great team. Everyone loved how easy going she was on our wedding day. Our photos turned out so beautiful and I can't wait to order them! Jenna is amazing and if you want her you should book fast because she is becoming highly sought-after!

Words can't describe how happy I am with the pictures that Jenna captured at my wedding. She did not disappoint at all. She was very flexible and attentive during my wedding, so much that I times I didn't even realize she was there and the pictures she captured were AMAZING! I planned my wedding in a matter of weeks and Jenna made the picture process seamless and stress free! I HIGHLY recommend Jenna to anyone who wants pictures taken for any event.
Katie · Married on 04/30/2011
My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with Jenna and Robert's work. We get so many compliments on our photographs. She was timely in all of our correspondence leading up to the wedding and sincerely cared about all the special details. A true professional!
Adriana · Married on 04/16/2011
We cannot express how much we loved working with Jenna! She is absolutely amazing to work with. Jenna put a lot of thought into our wedding album and made our day extra special. Jenna also works with her husband Robert and brought him to our engagement shoot and wedding. They are definitely a dynamic duo! Thank you Jenna for all your hard, wonderful work!
Sara · Married on 04/09/2011
My fiance and I met with a lot of photographers as it was important to us to have someone that understood our vision of how we wanted the day to be and that we connected with. Jenna and Robert were a perfect fit. No sales pitch, no pretense, just really nice, friendly and professional people that felt more like guests at our wedding than a vendor doing a job. The quality of their work is outstanding and they really captured the feel of the day artfully.
Blair · Married on 01/22/2011
Jenna and Robert were fantastic. The whole process was so easy and they were both so friendly. We got to know Jenna better during our engagement session which was wonderful. She was immediately so comfortable to be around and totally eased our first photo shoot jitters. Those photos are such treasures. When the wedding day got closer, Jenna sent me over a document to fill out to make sure I got all the shots I wanted. Any time I emailed her with questions she was right there to answer. On the wedding day, Jenna, Robert, and her other photographer, were so attentive to us. They were so flexible and mobile when the time line changed just a tad and I to be honest, I didn't even really know they were there. Her whole team was so amazing and put our whole family and wedding party at ease. No one felt uncomfortable at all. They were creative and got some amazingly refreshing shots. When we got the disc of wedding photos (housed in beautiful and elegant packaging which was quite impressive), we were blown away by how gorgeous they were. The lighting, the skill, the angles, were stunning. I've recieved amazing compliments on these photos and have been asked, over and over again, "Who was your photographer, your photos were gorgeous!" Our photographs were the largest expense in our wedding, and we feel we got SO much value for what we were charged and were happy to write that check. We will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives and will absolutely be in touch with Jenna Marie Photo for any and all future photography needs.

When I was looking for wedding photographers, I knew I didn't want to look back at my photos and be disappointed so I thoroughly searched for the best photographer for my husband and I's wedding day. Jenna and Robert definitely did not disappoint once from when we booked them until our prints were delivered. They were very enjoyable to work with, prompt on answering questions, and made me feel at ease on the wedding day because I knew my husband and I would have terrific photos to document our wedding day!
The most thorough vendor we booked for our day, she helped me to coordinate my day of schedule and pointed out a lot of things I haven't thought of!
