Jess and Jose are not only amazing photographers, but amazing people. They weren't just the photographers they became our friends, who just so happen to be taking pictures of us all day ;)
Jose was recommended to me by a friend a couple of years ago, the work he did for a Valentine’s Day shoot that he did was incredible! We contacted him again for my girlfriends maternity shoot and once again he left us extremely happy with everything!! Can’t wait for him to do our baby’s pictures and our wedding!!!
When my fiancé and I started looking for photographers to take our engagement photos I didn’t think twice before messaging Jessenia! I had met her in school a few years back and seen her amazing work before, so it was a no brainer.
My fiancé and I never had a photo shoot, so we were actually pretty nervous and shy at first but the shoot went by so fast, it was so easy and we had a lot of fun doing it! For my second outfit change, my dress ripped and I almost started crying.. Jess made sure that the rip (it was on my chest..) didn’t show up in any photos and that it didn’t stop us from taking beautiful pictures. Some of my favorite photos from the shoot are actually with the ripped dress!
That same night Jess sent us a few sneak peaks since we were so excited to see the outcome! I was so happy because I thought it would take for ever to get pictures back. The full library was available just a few days later and we had like 100 pictures to chose from and hey were one better than the other!
We’re booking another shoot in the future for sure! Since my wedding won’t be in the country and I didn’t know they were willing to travel, we booked someone else. I hope they’re as good as Jess was! Definite recommend, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Jess!
Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words!!! A ripped dress just adds to the story, and we're all about the story! :) So excited for our next shoot after your wonderful wedding!
Jess & Jose are simply incredible. After searching through countless portfolios, my husband and I decided to hire them to shoot our wedding pics. We got a chance to meet them at our engagement photoshoot, and they were a delight to work with! They were punctual, extremely accommodating, took their time to listen to all our requests, and had very reasonable prices!! I would use La Vie Studios again any day, for any other event!
P.S. I will update this post with wedding pics once I have them! =)
If we could review Heidi & Rodrigo, I think we would for being the absolute BEST to work with! Thank you SO MUCH for trusting us with your engagement session and your wedding day! It's our honor to be able to document those special moments in your lives together with baby David (You all should see his pimp mobile for the wedding day!)
I have known Jessenia for a while now and since I met her and her work I have always done my photography with her. My boyfriend is someone that does not enjoy being photographed much but with her the process is so much easier! He has voiced how he likes her style and her personality makes the session enjoyable. The quality of her work is excellent and I plan on using her services in the future.
AMAZING JOB! I had the pleasure of getting our engagement photos done by Jose and was so amazed by the quality and professionalism that we chose La Vie to also be our wedding photographer. Jose and Jess did an exceptional job at our outdoor wedding. From start to finish! They were on time and went through leaps and bounds to get great shots! I especially loved getting 10 sneak peek photos less than 48 hours after the wedding! They are an awesome duo and I highly recommend them!
Jess........................you are a magician!!!! I must say that from the day we did our research on your company, met you and spoke with you in regards to what we were looking for, your personality alone won us over! Due to the fact that I'm also in the service industry, I have a different appreciation for your willingness to work with the wedding couple and your open minded approach to shoot whatever shots we wanted, if any. Jose was a very welcome addition to your skills as he was equally as polite, willing and so so easy to work with. Both of your patience and attention to the little details that made a difference, was outstanding on our wedding day. Anyone who got married knows that the wedding day can be a very stressful time, but the both of you did an amazing job with keeping things calm and under control. I don't know how you do it.
Now above all, what TOTALLY impressed me is that after the wedding, you sent me 10 'teaser shots' that showed me a bit of what you were able to capture on our day. I know everyone is biased by their own pics and have the opinion that their wedding pics are the absolute greatest pics, but although I won't say that about ours..........I would go further to say that our location was beautiful to us and we wanted to get married there, but the few pics you sent us showed me the UNBELIEVABLE TALENT that you have!! You made our venue look like nothing short of a fairy tale and I can't talk enough about your skills! WOW! Honestly, you have shown us that our confidence and decision in choosing YOU above all other photographers was not only the best decision we could have ever made, but you have now placed us above cloud 9 with how we feel about our wedding day.
After all the hustle and preparation for over a year, all we have to reflect on are the pics and video. Thanks to you guys, we can't wait to see the full set of photos and can only imagine the hard word you put into it. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Anil. WOW! Just wow! Jose and I, are HONORED with such a detailed, and heart felt review of our services. We don't get to say this enough, but THANK YOU for choosing us, and for being so open with us throughout the process. Couples like you and Leah are what make us love our job, and go above and beyond! We're cooking up a special recipe for your wedding edits. So THRILLED to deliver them to you right before Christmas! :)
I'm SO HAPPY we chose Jose for our wedding day! From the day we met him he impressed us with his professionalism, timeliness, and thoughtfulness. I took a chance by only reading wedding wire reviews and I'm so glad we did! I met Jess on our wedding day and she was also so sweet. They were very accommodating and patient on our wedding day and my only regret is not hiring them longer. The day felt so rushed and I had the time of my life so it flew by BUT my goodness the sneak peeks we received from Jose were AMAZING!! I cannot wait to see the rest of the photos! Friends that I've shown say how the pictures look so elegant and cinematic. I've been told they should be in wedding magazines and can't wait to blow them up for our home. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I've already recommended them for my friend's proposal photo shoot and hope to use them again in the future. Choose them!
AMAZING photographers!!! They were so nice and made taking our portraits really fun. I was worried about the sun setting and the lighting but the pictures came out awesome, and I received wayyyy more pictures than I thought I would and each picture was perfect. Everyone is gushing and in love with them. Im very very VERY happy I had them to capture my wedding day :)
Boy were we impressed. Jose is a phenomenal Photographer. He is incredibly professional and focused especially since we are pretty much the same age lol (Definitely not in a bad way, we are both ahead of our age group). I couldn't imagine our wedding without Jose. Between the tricks he has acquired over time and the unique style of photography, Jose alone is breath taking. Thank's a lot for the great work and being there when I needed you at the right time.
We worked with Jessenia for both our engagement and wedding photos. She was wonderful to work with and was amazing at capturing the perfect, candid moments from our big day. We had a destination wedding in Miami, and Jessenia was really helpful in finding great venues for our engagement photos, and was really flexible with her schedule when we were hit with unfortunate weather. Jessenia was great and keeping things moving during the day and was a huge help with the logistics and captured everything I could have hoped for. I would definitely recommend her to anyone for their special day.
Jose was such a pleasure to work with! He was very professional and made our wedding day personal. He did an amazing job capturing candid moments and our photos looked so natural. I will continue to use Jose for future occasions!
I am SO glad that I chose Jose as the photographer for our wedding this year. Jose has a way of capturing the beautiful candid moments and love between a couple and it radiates in all of our beautiful photos. Its hard to pick a favorite. Aside from his breathtaking work, Jose was so much more than a photographer the day of the wedding. Through all the chaos, he stayed calm and even kept me calm through all of the crazy -- capturing many moments that I feel that most would let slip through the cracks. It has only been two months since my wedding and I've had countless people compliment my photos... I will continue to recommend Jose to all of my friends and family for years to come. Thank you, Jose!!
Nichole, thank you so much for the beautiful words! It means so much to me that you went out of your way to review me. It was an honor to be a part of you and Jayce's big day! Nothing makes me happier than to hear my clients satisfied with the memories I helped preserve for them. After all you guys aren't clients anymore, you're family! Thanks for sharing all those moments with me. Congratulations again! I look forward to seeing you two again in the near future. ?
We are so glad we found Jesse. She is friendly, professional, funny and an amazing talent. We highly recommend her to any and everyone.
Jose was absolutely amazing from beginning to end! He was always professional and on time. I asked him if it was possible to get the "Thank You" photos he took earlier then the expected processing time for our Thank You Cards and he was kind enough to get them back to me within days after our wedding! The editing and quality of the photos are absolutely stunning! We would absolutely recommend Jose Mena as your photographer for your upcoming event!
AMAZING! Just amazing! Made it easy, friendly, fun, beautiful and beyond special! Love her!
Love you guys, too! THE BEST SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT SESSION EVER! :)
If he's good enough for Kevin Hart's wedding, that speaks volumes...
Jose shot my destination wedding in Jamaica on January 14. He was wonderful! I found him from reviews on Wedding Wire and he fit perfectly within the tight budget my husband agreed upon. Jose offers a range of services which fit within most budgets. My husband didn't understand why would anyone even need 6 hours of photography on their wedding? He thought it would be very intrusive having a camera in your face. Jose actually shot our wedding day and our welcome dinner the prior night. Hence, it was much more than the 6 hours we thought we needed and we couldn't be happier! Jose got every little moment of our wedding celebration. He was far from intrusive and his photo journalism skills are exceptional. Not only was he very professional but extremely patient and detail-oriented. The pictures are breathtaking and I highly recommend him. Hopefully he's available on your wedding date!
Ama, thank you so much for the kind words! It was an absolute pleasure photographing you and Perry's wedding in Jamaica. It was truly one of the most beautiful events I've ever had the honor to be a part of. I look forward to seeing you both again soon. Thanks again. :)
I fully recommend Jose Mena. He is a wonderfully creative and talented photographer. I was very pleased with the session I had with him this past December. He is very professional (and always on time), yet his friendly and easy going disposition allows his subjects to feel at ease in front of his lense; this pleasant way of working allows him to achieve photographs that capture the true nature of his subjects in a natural and beautiful photograph. Also, he's very open to what his clients wish to see in a picture all while maintaining his unique style of photography. Lastly, Jose has great suggestions on posing, wardrobe and locations personalized to the preference and taste of each client; there is never a shortage of creativity with him.
Overall, I was extremely happy with the pictures and have since recommended him to various friends and family members.
Jessenia went above and beyond the call of duty, even sharing a Pinterest board with me. She made sure I got all the shots I wanted for the wedding. She knew the style I wanted and made sure to capture that. That's the amazing thing about Jessenia, she captures the look/genre you want. Love, love, love her and I will a million times over recommend her.
Thank you so much for the lovely review Aimee! You guys were the absolute best! Cheers!
My Fiancé and I were interested in booking an Engagement Portrait Session during our trip to Key Largo, FL. We decided on Jessenia's Photography based on the wonderful reviews and the beautiful photos on her website. We're so so happy that we were able to have her as our photographer. She is certainly talented and an absolute gem to work with. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm made the session so much fun. We particularly appreciated her responsiveness, professionalism and investment in our ideas and overall theme for the shoot. Because of her excellent work every photo is perfect. I would definitely recommend Jessenia to anyone.
Aw thank you Navida! It really is an honor to do what I do and share it with couples who are just as committed to making the session so enjoyable. It makes a world of difference! Thank you for choosing me.
Awesome, amazing, fantastic photographer!! I was so impressed by him the day of the wedding. Even my guests were complementing him to us about how awesome of a photographer he is. He did my wedding of 120 guests all by himself and did a freaking awesome job! He got everything we asked for and then some! He also did our engagement photos and it was such a fun experience! It was such a pleasure working with him.
Jose made everything very comfortable for us on our wedding day which is great because you do not want to be worrying about anything the day of your wedding. Both Jose and Yesenia were a pleasure to work with! We would highly recommend anybody who is planning on hiring a photographer, to chose Jose Mena Photography!
My husband and I used Jessenia for my bridal shower and our wedding. We couldn't be happier with her and her work! She made taking pictures easy and fun, and her love, talent, and passion for photography comes through in every single photo!
Jessenia and Jose are absolutely incredible! A little backstory on how we came to work with them.. My husband and I were married in June 2016 and were very unhappy with our wedding photos despite paying a pretty penny for the photographer. We decided to do an anniversary photoshoot before going on a cruise to celebrate one year of marriage. I searched for a photographer in the Miami area as I live a few hours away and found them. The photos on the website caught my eye because they were so genuine and absolutely stunning. You could see the love between the couples in the photos. I immediately scheduled our anniversary photo shoot. What I loved about working with Jessenia and Jose is that they listened to exactly what we wanted and made it happen. They are so incredibly down to earth and make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Simply put, they totally rock! If I could go back in time and have them as our wedding photographers I would do it in a heartbeat. Then I would know for sure that we'd have wall worthy photos.
Jose was great! He is was punctual, professional and talented. We love our pictures and are extremely pleased with his work. I would definitely recommend him!
