We had a relatively non-traditional wedding and Turnquist worked with us seamlessly. They truly were a joy to have at the wedding and captured the look and feel of our day perfectly. We are so happy with the quality of the photos and we were impressed at every turn with the balance of professionalism and fun. We honestly can’t say enough positive things about Turnquist.Sent on 01/08/2020

Let's just say... I cried on the dance floor saying goodbye to our photographer!
Rebecca and Jesse are a dream team. They immediately put us at ease the morning of our wedding. Rebecca is extremely detail oriented with all of her info gathered prior to the wedding. She also scouts the location and has a complete plan and vision for your wedding. We've only received a few shots (being our wedding was last week)... and every one has brought a tear to our eyes. Personally, Rebecca and Jesse are fun, professional, on point, creative, and sensitive to all of your "day of needs". At first we were not planning on having a video - but after speaking to Rebecca and thinking about it, we agreed. And having Jesse there capturing the moments we couldn't see made it all the more special.Sent on 01/26/2020

As we all know wedding planning is stressful . Finding a good photographer was one of the most important things for me. Upon our first meeting with Rebecca she put my mind at ease and worked well with my husband and I. She handled our different point of views very well and came up with very good solutions to meet both of our needs. Our photographer Jesse was amazing, my husband and I hate getting pictures taken and he made both of us very comfortable where we actually started to enjoy it. The pictures came out amazing and he made sure we got the pictures we needed while still being able to enjoy our wedding day. I highly recommend them!Sent on 12/18/2019
Turnquist Collective's reply:Thank you Chelsea! You were such a beautiful bride and your wedding day was just fantastic. I was thrilled to have been there and to have broken through with your camera shyness. All the best to you, Craig and the little man!!

Genuinely the best wedding decision you could make
Jesse and Rebecca were beyond amazing. Their contribution to our incredible day (both wedding photos and engagement photos) went way beyond the absolutely beautiful photos they took. Rebecca was so thoughtful and responsive during the entire process, even helping us with design and dress choices for the wedding. During our engagement shoot, which had begun as a very stressful day for a million reasons, Jesse seamlessly turned what could have been a really difficult day into something truly magical. Both she and Jesse felt more like welcome guests than photographers. Their easy manner, effortless professionalism, and depth of experience made the stressful time crunch of staged photos a breeze and their infectious joy banished all wedding jitters. I truthfully could not speak more highly of them both and it was truly one of the best decisions we made.Sent on 09/28/2019

As Incredible Photographers as they are People
Our friends used Turnquist Photography when they got married upstate. We not only loved their work but also really liked them as people. When it came time for us to get married, while we didn't get married locally to them we knew they would be the perfect match for documenting our day. We weren't wrong. Not only are the photos incredible but they are just really great people. Not only on the day but from our first engagement shoot with Jesse to the days leading up to our wedding our experience was nothing short of amazing. These are the photographers you should go with. 100% best decision we made other then obviously getting married.Sent on 09/26/2019
Turnquist Collective's reply:Thank you Tom!!!! What an unforgettable experience spending time with you and Kelly. Thank you for your trust and your friendship. Hopefully our paths will cross again!

All around amazing!
Rebecca could not have been more pleasant to work with! She made us so comfortable and came up with some beautiful shots that we will always treasure. I super highly recommend her and her team for any of your photo taking needs.Sent on 01/01/2020
Turnquist Collective's reply:Thank you so much Susan! Appreciate you trusting in us to document your wedding. You had the most beautiful fall day & you were such a gorgeous bride!!
Anne · Married on 05/04/2019
Turnquist Photography is an exceptional vendor! Extremely reliable and professional. We received all the photos very quickly and the photos are all stunning! Rebecca captured every little detail from the wedding without me even having to specify what I wanted. I highly recommend Rebecca and Jesse!Sent on 06/03/2019
Turnquist Collective's reply:Thank you so much! It was an absolute pleasure working for you & Gabe. You truly had the most perfect spring day & we are so happy we were able to document it for you! Hoping our paths cross again in the future!!

Fantastically talented and absolute professionals
From big moments to small and everything between—somehow though we couldn’t be everywhere at once, Rebecca was.Sent on 05/18/2019
An oh the photos! The make us smile, laugh, cry, screech, and jump up and down photographs. It isn’t just that they are stunning, professional and artistic...or that she finds the intrinsic beauty in everything...It’s the spark, the spontaneity, the empathy she clearly feels with her subject that shines throughout her work.
Rebecca and Jessie were also absolutely delightful from the moment we first contacted them. We could not have been happier with our decision to have them photograph one of the most important moments of our lives.
Turnquist Collective's reply:This was such a great way to start my day today!!! Thank you so much for trusting in me & allowing me to share in such a truly special day for both your families! You both were a dream to work with & hope that our paths cross again one day! (maybe when some more of your kids get married :)

Turnquist photography and videography all the way! I can't even imagine using a different photography team after working with Rebecca and Jesse for our engagement and wedding photos. They are two truly wonderful people who make a great team.Sent on 10/04/2018
My husband and I were initially shy in front of the camera, but during our engagement session Rebecca made us feel so comfortable and captured sweet shots. When it came to our wedding day we knew what to expect and felt right at home with Rebecca. She helped to organize group shots and captured all the important details of our day. She is so talented, fun to work with, and did everything in her power to make sure she captured those most important moments.
Prior to our consultation with Jesse we hadn't really planned on doing a wedding video. When we met with him, he showed us one he had just done for another couple and it moved me to tears. It was then that I knew we had to have one. Jesse works with Rebecca to incorporate photos into the video and sets it to music. Throughout the day he was caught taking video at fun angles from getting low to the ground to capture our footsteps or using his drone to get a bird's eye view. I am so happy we decided to do this and can't wait to watch the video and relive the day.
We can't thank Turnquist Photography enough for preserving those special moments from our wedding day.
Diana · Married on 10/08/2017
the BEST duo!!!!
Although our wedding was not recent, my husband and I are always looking back at our photos and never EVER get tired of it, because Rebecca and Jesse made it so easy to relive our day with the most gorgeous photos and video. Their beautiful photos of our wedding were featured in Strictly Weddings along with many other vendors who shared their amazing work. Not only did they give us the best memories to look back on, we also developed a friendship and comfort that we never knew we'd have with our photographers. We can't recommend them enough for wedding/family/lifestyle photos because every session we have had with them has been just as perfect as the last. Thank you Jesse & Rebecca!!!Sent on 02/13/2021
Turnquist Collective's reply:Heart exploding with so much gratitude for you guys!! This just made me cry & we are forever thankful our paths crossed. I know we don't get to see each other much between the distance & now the current pandemic, but hoping one day soon we will have the pleasure of having your beautiful family in front of our lens again!! xo R+J

Turnquist Photography captured our wedding so beautifully. Fun to work with, and the attention to detail is beyond expectations. Highly reccomended.Sent on 12/17/2017
Jared · Married on 06/24/2017
Turnquist Photography was everything we expected and so much more. Rebecca went above and beyond to make sure our wedding photos told more than a story! From our first meeting to the completion of our wedding we felt comfortable and knew we made the right choice. We never once felt like a client, it was working with someone who got to know us as individuals and as a couple. She was able to capture more than just moments in photographs but emotions and moments we will never forget.Sent on 12/06/2017
If you're looking for a photographer with an open mind, looking to make your photo needs more than special, we would suggest Turnquist Photography!
Reed · Married on 05/06/2017
The Turnquists are absolutely wonderful. Jesse was exceptionally professional, calm and accommodating. He went out of his way to make sure my husband and I felt taken care of and, of course, his photos are absolutely gorgeous! Highly, highly recommend Turnquist Photography!Sent on 05/23/2017

Working with Rebecca and Jesse was a great experience. The pictures turned out beautifully and we received them very quickly! The photo booth was also a big hit.Sent on 10/27/2016

Rebecca is the best! She listens to what you want and really tries to make sure who you are as a couple comes through in her photos - not just standard posed photography. So comfortable to work with. Highly, highly recommend!Sent on 10/14/2016

Where do we begin? Jessie and Rebecca Turnquist are truly in a league of their own. We were referred to them by close friends and were not disappointed. From the first Skype meeting, to the last picture we took with them at our wedding, they made us feel so comfortable and the experience working with them was amazing. They are so responsive and made the planning process very easy. We were nervous to be photographed at first as many couples are, but their calm nature put us at ease and we felt very natural during our engagement shoot. The day of the wedding they were perfect, directing us when necessary and capturing beautiful candid shots which told the story of the entire day. The photos are stunning and we could not ask for better snapshots of our day. We are awaiting our video and are confident it will not disappoint. As soon as friends get engaged, we tell them they have to book Turnquist!!! Thank you Rebecca and Jessie!!!Sent on 01/13/2016

I first learned about Turnquist Photography after attending a close family friend’s wedding, and absolutely loved the photos. Matt (my husband) and I were able to speak with Jesse over FaceTime, since we live in Albany, and we instantly felt at ease with him. For the initial process Jesse was incredibly easy to contract with. He made sure that he understood the full scope of what we were looking for in a photography package and worked with us on a payment structure that met our needs. When we met for our “warm up” shoot, he went above and beyond to take us to our chosen location (Lake George, NY) and it soon felt like we were old friends. Not only did Jesse take the most beautiful photos, but he made us laugh and gained insight into our dynamic as a couple, which he captured on camera. We wanted two photographers for our wedding, and unfortunately Rebecca Turnquist was unavailable for our date, so Jesse asked a friend of his who is an established photographer with his own business, Jon Lemon, to come and assist him. I’m Indian and Matt is Italian and Jewish, so we incorporated a lot of different traditions in our wedding. Jesse and Jon went to great lengths to make sure they got the best possible photographs, working with all the elements and even climbing on top of massive rocks to get shots of the groomsmen and bridal party. The photo booth was fantastic and user friendly, and all of the standard photographs (introductions, first dance, cake cutting, family portraits) were impeccable. Not to mention the amount of candid shots of everyone chatting, laughing, and busting moves on the dance floor. Both families commented after the wedding how much they loved our photographers—and how Jesse was able to corral everyone in our big families and assemble them for the larger portraits. Looking at the photos really makes you feel like you are reliving each moment of the wedding, and Jesse is really terrific at editing and posting the photos in a timely way, and making sureSent on 03/07/2016

I can't give enough positive feedback about Jesse! We used Jesse/Turnquist Photography for videography for our wedding in Sept 2015. From the very first email interaction, to the day of our wedding, Jesse was so kind, friendly and patiently answered all of my 100 questions :) We were all on the same page and my now husband and I trusted him with creative freedom. He was timely, professional and very personable. We absolutely could not be happier with the moments he captured, his artistic editing and his ability to summarize and highlight the amazing parts of our wedding day.Sent on 08/30/2016
We are so grateful for the work Jesse put in to our video that we now get to cherish forever. We look forward to watching over and over again, sharing with our family, friends and hopefully someday, our future children!!
We look forward to using Turnquist Photography again for either their art of Photography or Videography for another exciting life event.
Thank you so much Jesse!

We had a great experience with Jesse and Rebecca, right from the beginning. They are the perfect combination of talented, professional and friendly. Neither one of us were very comfortable having our pictures taken, and they really put us at ease and got really great shots. They perfectly captured the wedding, and we highly recommend them. A photographer is by your side all day, and we were so glad we chose them for this important role.Sent on 03/22/2015
Julia · Married on 10/05/2013
Jesse and Rebecca were fantastic! From the moment we met them we felt a warm connection and a sensitivity to our personalities and vision. Our engagement shoot was fun and laid back and yet we were astonished with how beautiful the pictures came out. On the day of our wedding, Jesse and his assistant were a calm and quiet presence, yet somehow managed to capture thousands of real moments with skill and artistry. I know my family and friends will be talking about the photo booth pictures for years to come! We will certainly be coming back for a baby shoot (!).Sent on 02/01/2014

Anyone who is having any sort of special event in their life should absolutely use Turnquist Photography to capture that time in photos. We used them for our Engagement and Wedding photos. From our first meeting with them in their home, we knew that they were the perfect people to help us during this very special time in our lives. I can honestly say that throughout the entire process, Jesse and Rebecca became like our close friends and family. They made everything so easy and fun. Their pictures are phenomenal. The day of our engagement session they drove all the way to our home an hour away and picked us up and took us to the location!! When viewing their pictures, you can see that they care about what they do and that they are true artists. The day of our wedding they showed up ready to go and worked their magic. They always post sneak previews of their sessions with you the day of or the next day which we LOVED!! They also surprised us with a custom made guest sign in book with our engagement photos of us!! They are so down to earth, friendly, and exactly who you want to be around during that Time in your life. We will definitely have our pictures for a lifetime and we are so thankful that we found Jesse and Rebecca to help us look back fondly. We love you guys!! XoxoSent on 09/19/2013
