My wife wanted creativity and thoughtfulness. I wanted precision, a photographer that could photograph in varying light conditions, one that could be appreciative of the differences in cultures and religions of our guests, and most importantly a reasonable price. We narrowed our decision to J. Palsa Photography and as it turned out, all went well. Jeannette was so receptive of our particular concerns and so full of ideas when we initially met her. Our wedding was in a city 300 miles from where we live, and Jeannette was mindful of this and communicated very well by email and when needed by phone. She took amazing photos all the while remaining unobtrusive. At times during the wedding I thought where is she, but in a quick moment I could catch her eye and arrange for a photo. She is so polite and understanding. Many of our guests commented on her professionalism and kindness. Her expertise culminated in a Photo book that was absolutely perfect. We like the composition, layout, background designs, quality of materials, everything. Jeannette exceeded our expectations in many many ways. She is professional, patient, a quick thinker, and has many creative ideas. We are happy she could take so many beautiful photographs even though at times our friends and family were disorganized. Her photos captured so many nice moments and warm feelings, both candid shots and arranged ones. They tell a joyful and fun story and will provide many nice memories for us when we look back at them throughout our life. She is an excellent photographer and a wonderful person.
