I could describe far too many favorite pictures. She captured many, many great tearful and fun moments!
You knew that Jennifer was there but she was not in the way or "in your face". In fact, most of the pictures I look at I didn't even remember her there! She made the posed photos go smoothly and made it fun. As for action photos she was "omnipresent" and just clicking away!
Jennifer gave us what we wanted at a very fair price. I didn't like other photographers who only had certain packages and would not confirm to what we only needed or wanted.
Jennifer just has a very easy, friendly and fun personality.
What was your favorite wedding photo? Jennifer shot just shy of 1000 photos during our wedding day -with her hard work and attention to detail it is simply too hard to select just one favorite. The one of me in my husband's arms being lifted in the air in front of Nubble Lighthouse is breath taking. There is one where my dress was caught in the wind as my husband and I are gazing at each other in Prescott Park under the tree - just spectacular. And I can't forget the one of my father kissing my cheek as my mom loving watches the scene.....shall I continue?
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Jennifer's work is about capturing those special, private, moments that take place in the blink of an eye. She captured our Best Man sneaking a lobster roll prior to our ceremony, the bubbles our niece blew into the air after our ceremony, the laughter of my brother and nephew and the joy in my father-in-laws eye as he listed to a song... moments you just can't describe.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? For us, located out of town with family members far and wide, it did not make sense to order a set package. We needed flexibility. Aphrodite Wedding Photography offered us that. After our wedding we received 2 DVDs with all of the photos from our wedding. This allowed us and our family members to take our time viewing the photos and to let each member of the family print their favorite photo.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? What is wonderful about Jennifer is that she is easy to work with. She didn't "pose" you per say, but she would suggest ideas for photos, catch you in the act, take suggestions for photos and so on. She wants to capture all the beauty in the natural and that is what makes her work speak to you. As one person said, "...when you look at Jennifer's photos, you get to know something about the people through the images..."
What was your favorite wedding photo? There are a number of pictures that are my favorites - first kiss, photos on the deck of the ship,... What I like about them is that they are very dynamic and truly capture the spirit of the moment. Also the way Jennifer works with light is absolutely stunning.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Jennifer Belkus is very professional. On the day of our wedding we could hardly notice that she was there, yet she was able to wonderfully capture the very special moments. There was an excellent balance of posed photos and action shots and they all turned out fantastic!
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We needed a very special package of both raw and compressed images on DVDs and we needed them delivered within a week. Not every photographer would agree to that but Jennifer did and we are very grateful to her. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photographer!
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Jennifer is very friendly and easy-going and makes everyone around feel comfortable. She made us feel at ease and relaxed on our special day.
