JBe is THE. BEST. EVER. EverEver.

What was your favorite wedding photo?

The Dark and Stormy ones at the Pabst were pretty freaking fabulous. But I honestly love them all.
I have the most wonderful pictures to remember how fantastic that day was and I wouldn't trade them for anything. I am so beyond grateful that I found Jenn. She helped make my wedding as excellent as it was.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Her "packages" are set up so that you can select what you want. We had an engagement shoot. She nailed it. Everyone was blown away by the infamous "cranes" picture. She is also incredible at Boudoir. *wink, wink*

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jenn is fun and funny and all around awesome. She is also incredibly talented and an absolute dream to work with. She makes you feel comfortable because she is just a great person. You can really tell that she loves her job and loves to help people remember those special moments.I have never felt as comfortable in front of a camera as I did with Jenn. Both my family and my husband's family thought she was so great, they told us numerous times how impressed they were with not only the pictures but also with Jenn herself. She gives excellent directions to groups and is also great at snapping an excellent candid that really captures the moment. She always gets the shot. :) I'm a little sad that my wedding is over because I don't see her much anymore.

Seriously. Stop looking for a wedding photog and just contact her. You will not be sorry.

You will be sad if you don't book with Jennifer

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There is one picture that I can't stop staring at when I look at my wedding album. It's one of the last pictures in the book from towards the end of the night. It's black and white-my husband and I are dancing. I don't know what song but him and I are looking at each other and I am belting out the words to whatever song is playing.

Most people probably think it's a silly picture. To me it shows us in a room not noticing anyone around us. We are totally being ourselves and enjoying the moment. To have a photographer catch that for us on such a special occassion is priceless.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I knew Jennifer was the one to book based on her candids. My husband and his ENTIRE family hate having their pictures taken and refuse to put pictures up of themselves. The last thing I wanted was a bunch of pictures that I couldn't showcase because my husband didn't like the way he looked in them.

Jennifer assured him that she would be nija like and he totally felt comfortable with her. The candids, action shots, and portraits were great and most importantly my husband liked how he looked in them.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I know there was a lot included but the specifics I won't get right since it's been a year.

We did get an album, photo credit, all the pics and the rights to them, her and her assistant for 8 hours. We opted to not do the engagement pics even though they were encluded and she flexed the package for us.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer was herself. She wasn't obtrusive or bossy in fact she was funny and warm. My in-laws commented on how much they liked her personality the whole night.

For me as a bride, I knew I had nothing to worry about. Jennifer's talent and personality shows through and can put anyone at ease. I didn't worry about how my arms looked or if I would get the shots I wanted. Jennifer not only exceeded my expectations in capturing the happiest day of my life, but she made me feel beautiful through her work. That I will cherish forever.

Best decision for our wedding!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There was an awesome moment right after I tossed the bouquet where my mom, cousin, aunt, and I were hugging and dancing in a circle, then out of nowhere all of my bridesmaids joined hands around us and danced in the opposite direction and Jen captured it perfectly. Even though my husband isn't in the picture it is my favorite because of all the love energy that you can feel. We had the best bridal party and I love my bridesmaids so much, and at that moment (during "Hey Soul Sister" which made it even more special and emotional) I could feel their love for me, too. I am so thankful to have a photograph of that moment, we're getting a huge print of it for our wall, too!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jen is a ninja. When we got our proofs there were some photos that I was like, how did she get that shot? I had no idea she was there! I honestly wouldn't have minded if she got in the way during the day because the photos are what we are going to have to remember and if it means getting great shots then so be it, but she somehow managed to get us fabulous photographs without disrupting any of us or our guests. Truly awesome.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We paid for 6.5 hours of coverage and got all of our photographs on a flash drive about two months after our wedding. She also had a great assistant with her the day of our wedding who mostly worked with lighting but also had a camera on hand so we got a kind of bonus with what he shot.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

My maid of honor kept commenting on how great Jen made everyone feel by constantly telling us how great we looked and how much fun we were. Jen is super professional but relaxed so no one felt stressed out about posing for portraits, thus making them much more "real". There were no fake smiles!

Jennifer is super fun and amazingly talented, she made us feel like we were old friends and she was legitimately excited to be at our wedding- we weren't just another paying client in her book!

Memories to last a lifetime

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite wedding photo is of my husband and I sitting at a table, sharing an intimate conversation over a glass of wine. It felt like one of our dinner dates, not a posed photo with our wedding photographer.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer took some amazing photos without anyone knowing exactly where she was. Many times I found myself wondering where she must have been hiding to get some of the amazing shots. The candids are a favorite of mine, and she did not disappoint!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Jennifer has flexible packages, so we could mix and match a little. We had Jennifer and her assistant for 6 fabulous hours. Our package also included a flash drive with all of our photos.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer joked and seemed to blend right in with my mother and maid of honor when we were getting ready just before the wedding. I felt just as comfortable asking her if my makeup looked good as I could my bridesmaids. Some of my guests commented on how great of a photographer she was. Even my husband, who is very selective when giving out compliments, liked her style and was sad when our 6 hours were up. And that is saying a lot!

Outstanding experience, exceptional talent

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Well, this is nearly impossible! We did one shot behind the capitol with a special lighting feature that still blows my mind!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Nothing about Jennifer's work style is disruptive. Her approach is very accommodating. I felt at ease during group and portrait shots and was having a great time... which is pretty impressive because generally, I hate being in pictures!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer's all around positive attitude is probably one of the best things about working with her. Her enthusiasm is contagious and helps create a calm and fun atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about her.

Highly Recommended

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Jennifer got a great shot of my wife and I with all of our friends dancing. She captured all of the energy on the floor. That or a picture of my mom and dad hamming it up for the cameras. She takes portraits with "umph." These aren't your normal wedding photos. They come alive with energy and character.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She avoided disrupting the day by not disrupting the day. Haha, I'm not sure how else to answer this. We just did our thing and she captured it with flair.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Full right of use of our photographs, two photographers, a USB drive with all of our photos. Also, we had wedding preview shots by the morning after the wedding. Jennifer is a rockstar!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer just goes with the flow and melds well with everyone. She could be another member of the family.

Wonderful!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

So many to choose from...we had a blast on the playground of my old grade school, and she captured some sizzling and dramatic shots in downtown Milwaukee in such unexpected places like a bridge behind our reception venue and a nearby fountain.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer and her assistant managed to be everywhere at once without me even noticing, which I think indicates that maybe she was a covert agent in another life! I was drawn to her work by her ability to capture people in the middle of happy and special moments as they naturally look, and that is one reason why my husband and I are so happy with the finished product.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer has a great personality that is incredibly upbeat, and that translated into a fun experience for me, my husband, our wedding party and families.

Why I LOVE JBe Photography

What was your favorite wedding photo?

All of them! Jennifer captured our day down to the very last detail. She was creative and visionary with what shots she wanted to get. She went inside our heads to get the shots that we described to her and made them happen - I think they are better than what we were wanting!
There are a few photos that are my favorite:
The ones of my husband and I exchanging the rings, it was the first time I had seen my ring all together and I let out a little squeal of joy. We all started laughing and she got this amazing shot of us.
She caught 4 shots of me just being silly/sassy while we were getting our group together. The pictures were so awesome! I looked beautiful and she captured my fun/sassy attitude with 4 clicks. We are lucky to have found her.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer and her assistant were dressed professionally. They had the right clothing and shoes to look nice and to move around fast to get the shots. You really would not even know she was there, they blended in and I swear I have no clue how they got the shots they did.
Jennifer is diplomatic and kind, she can get anyone to do anything! She got my little nieces to look at the camera and smile. My one niece doesn’t like the camera but Jennifer captured the best shots of her. Her candid shots were just breath taking and the portraits were quick and moved within the time we had at the church and other venues. She allowed us creative liberty when we wanted to do something meaningful or a spur of the moment shot. It was great!
An example of the meaningful shot was with me and a dandelion. When I was little my Grandma took a photo of me in a huge field of dandelions. I saw a cute one as we were walking to do a group shot and I asked her to snap some shots of me and the dandelion. The picture turned out beautiful and now my Grandma has a beautiful photo just for her.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

JBe Photography has plenty of packages that include anything you would want. She lets you customize your package. For my hubby and I, we already had our engagement photos taken so she was able to help us choose other options. Our wedding was large enough to require her and her assistant. We got the digital photos and release. The album was put together by Jennifer and given to us to proof.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

For months after the wedding, my family still talks about Jennifer, how sweet she was and of course the amazing photography.

Incredible photographer to hold on to!!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

um... how can you even answer this?
almost every photo was our favorite... and there are so many styles she does!
Our wedding was at the Zoo and we got to take a private tour on the train.. my fav photos were probably there- moments we barely knew she was shooting!

We did a "first look" photo shoot as well- she actually played a trick on me cause I was so hell bent on surprising my fiance with me sneaking up behind him.. that she had him sneak up behind me..
it was absolutely perfect... I couldn't have made it better myself!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She has a talent to feel out the mood and timing.. pulls you aside and directs you to do the portraits... lets be real- we all need a little focus after the "I do's"

She was so quiet and so in the background.... which made for some amazing photos when we didn't even know she was there!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Our package included our engagement session with proof credit and a disk,
Wedding photos with her assistant, proof credit, disk and a wedding album.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She took the time throughout our engagement to get to know us and our style. She took risks in terms of photography without compromising the photos that were a necessity.
She was VERY open to our diverse family and the complex nature of the portraits to be taken.

Super AWESOME!!!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Favorite photo? How can they seriously ask this question with Jennifer's photography. I LOVE THEM ALL!!! To narrow it down to a single favorite picture would be impossible. No matter your style Jennifer effortlessly gets the perfect shots.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer and her assistant made the day flow very well and directed people with ease when needed. Her candids were awesome. As the bride everything goes so fast you can't remember everything that happens and you get to re-experience your wedding from a whole another point of view with her pics. Seeing everything you didn't get to see and seeing everything that may have passed by too fast. My description of Jennifer's work does not do her justice. Plain and simple SHE ROCKS!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We booked engagements, boudoir, and wedding with Jennifer. All of the photos we loved and our family loved. Even all of our friends comment on how awesome of a photographer she is. We also purchased prints, albums, and will be receiving the digital files to all of our wedding pics.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

My husband is not excited about getting pictures taken. He in fact dreaded getting engagement pics done, but he'll tell you himself that Jennifer makes you feel so comfortable and directs you without feeling like your being posed. She is so great at capturing the moment that there is pretty much no posing involved in most of the pictures. LOVE IT!

Fabulous!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Jenn brought us out in the middle of the golf course on this amazing hill. The sun was shining with amazing clear, blue skies... the photo was just amazing.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She and her assistant, Mike, made sure they were always out of the way and told us to just go about our day as if they weren't there. The candid shots were so amazing! And because she had asked us which portraits of who we wanted ahead of time, it made portrait time go very easily.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got Jenn and her assistant and a bunch of amazing photos from 5 hours of shooting on a flash drive. It was perfect for us!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was super fun, down to earth and very much similar in personality to my husband and me. She joked with us right away and was so personable that I felt like I'd known her my whole life. My husband and I wanted to spend money on food and photography, and the amazing photos were worth every penny.

JBe Photography

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I have quite a few favorites, but having to narrow it down to one... I'd say my favorite is a photo of my husband and I sitting on some stairs outside. Jennifer grabbed us for some quick night shots. She positioned us and their lighting equipment just right to snap an awesome picture!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer avoided disrupting the day by gathering informartion from us before our wedding day. (Things like where we'll be getting ready, timing of each element of the wedding, if there was any special traditions she should be aware of, etc.) She also collected names of people we wanted in portrait photos. Understanding how busy we were with wedding planning, she made everything so easy and we were able to do all this through e-mail!

Jennifer is great with candids. As a matter of fact, her style is why we chose to work with her. (That, and her friendly and outgoing personality!) The moments I remember in my mind are action shots... pictures should captivate that. Jen does this very, very well.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Included in our package was six hours of coverage, a flash drive with photos taken, some thank you cards and an 8x8 album. (If you can, order some thank you cards... they turn out great & we received many compliments!)

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer and Mike (assistant/second photographer) were so laid back and fun.... very easy going. For us, this was important. Also, they were not "intrusive" in any way. And once we saw our proofs, that was evident. They did such a wonderful job taking candid photos without the subjects knowing they were even there.

What was your favorite wedding photo?

The picture of my husband and I walking through the vine-covered archway, looking at each other and holding hands. It was BEAUTIFUL!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

There was no disruption to our day. I was surprised to se all the action shots that were taken because I never knew they were taken. Jen was super fun during the portraits. She was able to manage all different personalities. Also, the candids we got were beautiful and hilarious!

Our package was for 6 hours on the day of the wedding, a digital copy of all of the pictures, and an 8" X 8" album.

You'll Plan A Wedding Just For Her To Shoot

What was your favorite wedding photo?

It's impossible to find one picture I would call me favorite... so many would fit that description for so many different reasons. She did the traditional wedding shots, but my favorites were mostly the candid shots she shot throughout the wedding and those PERFECTLY captured the emotion of the day. People who were not there or didn't even know us who saw the pictures were almost drawn to tears but how amazing her work is.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jenn was nearly invisible during the wedding. We saw candid pictures she shot during the ceremony and reception that no one remembers her taking. She never even caused a flinch in us or the other guest in her shooting and it was beautifully reflected in the candids she took. The portraits were amazing and very creative and captured the wedding party, friends, and family so well, everyone was amazed. She worked well with everyone at the wedding!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

She included an extra photographer as an assistant and included a full disc of pictures, online access, and the ability to add a variety of products to share the imagery.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

I bragged about how well Jenn was going to make our wedding look, and everyone agreed when they saw the results. Those that met her at the wedding loved her, thought she was extremely professional, and you would've thought she was one of the guests! I would redo my wedding just to have her shoot it again!

Perfection!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Jen took a fabulous shot of us down at the lake, a wide-angle, with us in the right hand side of the frame and the lake stretching out in the background. the sun was setting, and she picked up the colour changes, the reflections... Its just a great shot. I like it so much I made it my desktop.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Our event was pretty small, and we'd made it clear to all the vendors present that they were more than welcome to mingle, introduce themselves, and generally be a part of the day in the same way that the guests were. Being the groom, I was kind of rushed off my feet going here and there for various things, but its a really nice feeling to have your guests come and tell you they met your photographer and she's a wonderful woman. She's got a very light, breezy and overwhelmingly positive demeanor that made her a joy to work with; practically every shot she has of relatives and friends its clear they are having a good time and enjoyed working with her!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

As we were doing a small event and trying to cut costs as much as possible, we sounded out a number of photographers and were surprised at the contrast between their pricing and hers. It was pretty clear what we'd be paying for, and what we'd expect to receive, a large contrast from the other photographers we'd contacted who were less than clear about things. Jen didn't attempt to nickel-and-dime us in any way and her no-frills package included all the shots she took on a DVD, as well as hosting online so our relatives and friends could order prints themselves (which is pretty handy, as I had relatives coming in from overseas).

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Wow, how didn't she? Myself and my wife met her a couple of times before the event to hash out details and cross all our T's and whatnot, quick, painless, and very casual meetings in which Jennifer's enthusiasm for for her job was well evident, both in the quality and professionalism of work she produced and the relaxed positivity that she radiated from our first meeting all the way through to the close of our special day. Jennifer accompanied us to the venue prior to our big day, and we scouted out potential locations and good places to stage shots, we even invited her along to our meal tastings; she just a great person to have around!

In the end though, it wasn't really anything she did or didn't do to make us feel comfortable. She's a happy, positive person with a clear love for her job, and the quality of her work speaks for itself. by the time our wedding actually came, it felt less like we were hiring someone and more like a friend of ours was taking care of that for us. Book her now!

WE LOVE JENN!!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

That's a tough question! If forced to pick absolutely just ONE photo, I would say that it's one of the photos during our first dance. My wife was looking over my shoulder as my cheek rested on hers. She was looking into the camera, but only her eyes were peeking from my shoulder. The happiness she had that day was all in her eyes, and even without seeing the rest of her face, you just know she's smiling a very genuine and happy smile. A perfect capture that only a truly seasoned photographer can make! And as if that wasn't enough, Jenn made masterful use of a remote flash to produce a VERY, VERY dramatic lens flare.

I'm a serious photography enthusiast, and I absolutely LOVE her work. My father, who used to be a professional photographer who back in the day and had photography exhibitions in some of the most prestigious art galleries in my home country, was likewise very impressed with her work. That says a lot!

We could not have chosen a better photographer to capture the memories of our wedding day.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jenn is very skilled at not disrupting anything. She blends in very well. At times we even forget we have a photographer busy taking pictures!

She also has a great eye and trigger finger for "the moment" (and there were A LOT of those that night). She's right in the midst of all the action. She caught our relatives wiping the tears from their eyes during the ceremony, our guest twirling her scarf around as she danced (and everybody laughing with her) during the reception, and the fleeting expression of happy surprise on my mother's face when I danced with her, which she kept for less than a second. This, in my humble opinion, exemplifies how truly seasoned a photographer Jenn is.

The portraits Jenn produced were also far beyond what we expected (and we had very high expectations, knowing how good she is after seeing her portfolio).

Really, you can't go wrong with picking Jenn as the photographer for one of the most important days you'll have in your life.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got full coverage of both the ceremony and reception. We also got a disc of high-resolution images, online proofs, and even the ability to send out the online proofs to our guests so that they too can choose and print any image they'd want to have a copy of for themselves.

Oh, and not only that, she saved us from a lot of work that we would have had to do had she not saved us from making a mistake at a crucial moment. When we were signing our marriage certificate, she told my bride that she sh/could sign with her new name. We both never even considered that! It would have been a LOT of work to have to correct a mistake like that.

And during the cake cutting, seeing as how my wife and I were lost as to how to execute it, she quietly told us that the best way to go about it would be for my wife to support the slice of cake using the spatula, and for me to use the long knife to "sandwich" it from the top. Cake disaster avoided. :D

I guess what I'm trying to say it, not only do you get a person to take photos with Jenn, you also get all the experience she's had from all the weddings she's done, and she'll very unobstrusively step in at the right time with practical advice if she sees an opportunity to make your wedding day even better. ;)

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jenn is a natural at making people comfortable. She just has that magic touch. There's no other way to say it. My wife and I are very reserved people, I'm not photogenic at all, and I dislike smiling for a camera, but she just made us so at ease that I didn't even notice her working her magic. I was really surprised to see that I can actually look good in a photo!

Also, she would just make us laugh with a joke, comment or observation, and *click*, a picture was taken with the most sincere and beautiful smile you'd be able to make. At times, I even thought she was just making adjustments on her camera. Unbeknownst to us, she was capturing the best candids we've ever had taken of us.

All in all, it's a combination of Jenn's natural affability, tremendous talent and considerable experience that made all the difference.

We could not have asked for more from our wedding, and picking Jenn as our photographer had a lot to do with it. Even today, weeks after the wedding, my wife and I look at the wonderful photos that Jenn took and can't help but smile as the memories of that happy day come back to us. :)

Book it. Immediately, if not sooner.

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I have about 30! Seriously. The pictures were so candid and so unique - it make them so special! I'm pretty sure every wall in my house will have one of the pictures because I cannot get enough of how amazing they are. My husband is not photogenic at all and I have the most amazing photos of him, I can't thank her enough for this.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jenn is fantastic with candids! She did a phenomenal job going around and capturing the day. Even for 'posed' pictures she didn't instruct us on what to do, she wanted for the best moment and captured when my husband and i were really enjoying the moment. There are also some SWEET dancing pictures! Jenn took care of it, she knew what to do and didnt' have to ask or bug me about anything. If I didn't like being around her so much, I would have forgot she was even there!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We got the sweet and simple and added a few hours of coverage. We have an album, 8 hours of coverage, one photography (why get two when one does such a good job?). She had a TON of different options of packages and was super flexible about creating your own.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

One month later and people are still talking about how laid back and cool Jenn is - that says a lot. Unlike other weddings I've been in, Jenn didn't boss us around - she went with the flow and let people be them selves. I cannot stand photographers who orchestrate every moment of the picture -- hand here, step forward -- how is that natural? What Jenn does is a true gift.

Wow, there are so many favorites it would be impossible to choose just one... Jennifer has a really wonderful eye for capturing the moment, the mood, the environment, the details and then wrapping it all up into a beautiful photo!

She did a great job moving around through the crowd and captured TONS of dancing photos :)

Nadine and Rob's wedding day review

The picture that is currently on Jen's website above the "wedding's" button. It is Rob and I overlooking the river. Rob is being sooo sweet and Jen did a great job of capturing our moment plus the beautiful Milwaukee background.

Wonderful Experience! Highly recommend!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There were so many pictures that Jennifer took that I loved, however, one of my favorites is one she took of my husband and I in a big open field, the wind was blowing my veil and the fall colors were gorgeous! Captured the moment perfectly.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Very time-conscious! Even though pictures started later than scheduled, we were still back for the reception early! She took many priceless candid shots, and the portraits were stunning.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

For our wedding package we chose the 4 hour package that included a 8 x 10 photo album, the disk with our all our wedding pictures and the rights to reprint them, as well as a 8 x 10 portrait of our choice. We opted not to have the engagement session. Jennifer was the only photographer, but she did such an awesome job, she would not have needed any help with the beautiful pictures that she was able to take. She was very organized and has a great eye for those perfect shots.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer was very outgoing and made taking pictures fun and exciting! Our whole wedding party enjoyed her and had a great time with pictures! Family was comfortable and really liked her as well.

She was the best!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I think that some of our favorite pictures are the ones she captured when we had no idea she was even there! We loved looking back through them and finding the amazing shots we weren't expecting!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She was AMAZING!!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We made several swaps to the package we chose...we chose to have her for a longer time and to cut out the 4x6 print of every picture from the day. We also got an amazing coffee table book that everyone is in awe of and an awesome 16x20 wall print.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She got along well with everyone...had a sense of humor but remained completely professional the entire day!

One of Jennifer's brides!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My husband and I have so many favorites from the proofs that we recieved from Jennifer last night. I don't think that we could narrow it down. All of them are our favorites! :)

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer was AMAZING all day. I was talking to my husband as we were browsing our photos, and my most common comment was that I had no idea that there was a photographer there for most of the shots. Not to mention, before the ceremony, I was having an issue with my acid reflux and Jennifer took the time to ask the kitchen for some milk for me! Definitely not in her job description, but she helped anyway!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had engagement pictures, a coffe table album for my husband and I, a coffee table book for each of our sets of parents, a cd of all of our proofs...I'm trying to think and that may have been it...but we booked so long ago that I'm having a hard time remembering!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Oh, Jennifer did a great job with making sure everyone was comfortable. My entire family is very goofy, and Jennifer fit in well. She was willing to work with us to do the shots that we wanted, and snapped pictures whenever people were having fun! :)

Unbelievable...absolutely fantastic!!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I'm trying to think if I have a favorite...there are so many to choose from! I love them all for different reasons! She captured every detail of our awesome day. Our wedding album is absolutely gorgeous, she did a wonderful job of putting it together. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. She also made a guest book of our engagement pictures for people to sign at the reception. We received so many compliments on it; many people said they couldn't wait to see our wedding pictures because our engagement pictures were so awesome! It was a great idea!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer captured all the important moments of the day, many of them without us even knowing. She definitely has an artistic eye and made us feel at ease the whole day. She is extremely talented taking all kinds of pictures - candids, action shots, and portraits. Once the dancing started, Jen opened up the "crazy booth"! She brought some fun props from home, a couple studio lights and started snapping away as groups of people lined up to get their goofy, fun picutres taken! It was a huge hit, people loved it and are still talking about it.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Jennifer has lots of packages to choose from. She sat down with me and listened to what I was looking for in a photographer. We decided to have her all day! This included a 2 hour engagement session, unlimited time and stops on our wedding day, 3 beautiful coffee table books (one for us and each of our families - which turned out amazing!) a disc with all the pictures and printing release, a proof book of all the images, including B & W, 300 thank you photo cards/envelopes, and a 1 hour portrait session 1 year from now! We couldn't have asked for anything else!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

We got to know Jennifer during our engagement session. Nic had not had a chance to meet her until then and was shocked at how easy and comfortable she made us feel. The day of the wedding I received numerous compliments from the groomsmen as to how painless the pictures were! Our families loved her and are so happy with all our pictures. She sat with friends at dinner and they all had great things to say about her. Jennifer is so easy going, but yet professional. She did a fantastic job, and we are so happy to have found her!

Best Wedding Photographer EVER! Book Her TODAY!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Honestly, we can't choose a single favorite from the images we have received. Jennifer managed to capture the essence and spirit of the entire wedding and every photo is a memory of the amazing celebration. Each image brings to life a moment, a memory, of that special night. We refuse to keep these amazing images in a stuffy photo album and plan to openly showcase the photos so that we can remember our wedding forever!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer is amazing (understatement!) The way she works is seamless - she is so professional and friendly. She was treated as an honored guest and friend at our wedding. As a fellow photographer I was nervous entrusting my photos to just anyone - I literally couldn't be happier with my images. From candids, to action shots, to portraits, the proof is in my images - Jennifer is a talented and creative photographer!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Because we were having a small, intimate wedding of under 30 guests as well as being on a tight/small budget, we honestly didn't think we were going to be able to afford a photographer. . . then we found Jennifer. She listened to our wants and needs and helped us come up with a solution to fit our budget. In the end we decided to book Jennifer for a 5 hour time slot and receive our images on CD with full print capabilities. With that said, my new husband and I have decided to book Jennifer to photograph us for some other occasions in the near future!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Oh my gosh! Jennifer is the most laid back and friendly professional out there - so much so we were honored when she agreed to sit with us at our head table. While my in-laws may have been getting on my nerves, Jennifer took it in stride, talking and joking with my guests - fitting in seamlessly.

We can never thank Jennifer enough for the amazing job she did on our wedding photos!

Amazing....just amazing!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

That is a hard one. There were so many awesome images from the day - that choosing one is a little hard. If I had to narrow it down it would be the one of Aaron and I kissing under my veil or us standing in front of the brick wall.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Her eye for detail and catching those split-second moments created some of the best pictures we have. She captured subtle, sweet moments between Aaron and I - but also caught us being our goofy selves. Our portrait shots and those of our wedding party were beautiful. The day was amazing and Jennifer was able to catalog it on film for us, so we'll always be able to look back and enjoy.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

There were a few things included in the package I chose. Jennifer came to our wedding and shot for four hours. We will receive all of our full resolution images on DVD in color and B/W with a printing release. We also will receive a 7X7 coffee table book with 40 pages in it and a 8x10 matted picture of our favorite image.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Amazing is a word I often use to describe Jennifer Brindley. From the moment I met with her, I knew she was supposed to photograph my wedding – and she didn't disappoint. On the big day, Jennifer arrived early and was ready and excited to start shooting. Her enthusiasm put my camera-shyness at ease and her sense of humor was a perfect fit for our group. She got along exceptionally well with the entire wedding party and just as well with all of the guests.

I would absolutely recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a photographer. She has definite skill and a friendly, inviting attitude. Yay Jbe!!

We are JBe converts

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There were so many pictures that we just loved - it's really hard to pick one. We were lucky to meet with Jennifer again the morning after our wedding to do a photo shoot on a beach. She snapped one of our favorites while we thought she was simply adjusting her lighting - we didn't know she was taking pictures, so the photo is really natural and highlights a special part of our relationship. We didn't know we looked at each other like that! One of Jennifer's great gifts lies in her ability to capture fleeting yet significant moments, giving us the chance to see through her perceptive eyes.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer handled a wide range of photos with discretion and expertise. Her presence was never intrusive. She took beautiful, tasteful pictures of me getting dressed and then switched gears at the end of the ceremony to direct portraits of up to 30+ people (including children) at once. Her professionalism in both situations, as well as in all the situations in between, really set everyone at ease and yielded wonderful results. Jennifer can get the perfect shot quickly, which allowed us to get through all of the formal portraits we had requested (and more) without feeling rushed.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We will be getting all of our full-resolution wedding photos on a DVD, including black-and-white versions of the color shots, with printing rights. The package included one 8x10 print, and, since we added on our post-wedding shoot, we were able to choose an additional 8x10. Jennifer also designed a book including highlights from both shoots (primarily the wedding). We are really glad that she was the only photographer included in our photo package, as we loved her work and wouldn't have wanted to trust our day to a different photographer.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

We've had so many comments from family and friends about how much they appreciated Jennifer's easy-going yet professional style. My mom said we couldn't have asked for a better experience with a photographer. Jennifer's work with candid photos is exceptional - her relaxed manner encourages everyone to be at ease and have fun. She does a great job of blending into the background without missing a moment. Jennifer is also really easy to talk to, very friendly and not at all intimidating. Though much of her work is to beautifully document the events of the day as they unfold, she also has creative ideas for posed portraits while encouraging her subjects to be themselves. It's obvious that she loves what she does, and her enthusiasm for her work is infectious, amplifying the joy and excitement of the day.

Fabulous Photographer

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There were so many to choose from... the candids of the ceremony were fabulous but my favorite would probably be the one taken on a wooden bridge with the sun peeking through the trees.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer made sure we had a plan before the actual day so things went smoothly. She had a list of photos needed and we met at the location to scope out spots a week before the wedding. Her candids and portraits turned out great and we had such a variety. They weren't the same old wedding photos by any means.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We get a CD of all our pictures, a book of photos compiled from our day and and 8x10 of our choosing. Jennifer assured us that another photographer would cover our day if an emergency arose.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer is so friendly and well organized that everyone took to her right away. She worked with the younger children well and talked with everyone she photographed. She even made friends with our officiant!

You'll fall in love with her photographs!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I think it was when she caught my reflection in the mirror as I was walking down the aisle with my dad. That or the one of the flower girl sitting pensively in the chair where we removed the garter. I loved the ones with my groom before the wedding, too. It's really hard to pick one.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She was very subtle and unobtrusive. I think she has a true talent at candids, action shots and portraits: a photojournalist of the highest stature. She captures moments that are so subtle that most people watching probably missed them. She makes it all look beautiful, too.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I got a DVD of the pictures and an album. It was surprisingly reasonable. My father said that the price would have been worth it even if we only got the 20 pictures she sent the night of the wedding. She was amazing.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was very patient with us, even when I got tired and fussy at the end. She was playful and sweet to all. I've been at weddings where the photographer kind of ordered people around. That is not her style. I was surprised at how she basically worked with whatever we did, and made it wonderful. I'm still not sure how she did it!

Ecklund Wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

We had so many favorite pictures! We were married at a public park behind a hill that she made look like a green mountain. She ran around to catch the view from amazing angles during our 10 minute ceremony. Reception photos were done in the moment and in poses. We love all of them!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I loved that she didn't bug people durring dinner. Instead she took pictures of our rings in creative ways and focused on details around the dinner.

The package we decided on included a book. She did an amazing job putting each and every person from the wedding in that book. It will be in our family forever!

First of all you know when you meet her this is what she wants to be doing and that makes everyone feel equally excited! We had talked about the family order and how we would add members as we took pictures. She took many pictures in a short amount of time. And they were beautiful!

I would recommend Jennifer to anyone.

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There are way too many to pick right now! I think my favorite is of me and my husband sitting outside, on a park bench in front of a beautiful golden fall tree. We're kissing and laughing and just paying attention to each other.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer struck a great balance between being personable and discreet. She did a good job directing us in the posed photos and keeping our attention on her. She has a great personality and is very exciting and fun to work with so it was easy to focus on her and her direction. However, she was also unobtrusive when she needed to be. For example, I have no recollection of her taking photographs at all during the ceremony. She wasn't distracting at all when I focused on the ceremony or when I was having a little moment with my husband.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I know she offers packages with an engagment session in them, but we didn't opt for that. Our package included two locations, online gallery, disc of images, a coffee table book and 16x20 print of our favorite image. I found her prices to be extremely reasonable, and a great value. Her style and the quality of the pics were similar to photographers we looked at who easily cost double.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Jennifer just has an awesome, outgoing, great personality. I am not a huge fan of being photographed so I really wanted to make sure I liked my photographer and felt comfortable. She made me feel gorgeous and I had a lot fun during the shoots, which I wasn't expecting! She was very comfortable interacting with family members and wasn't at all shy about getting everyone where they needed to be and when, yet she was always friendly, never pushy or overbearing. She has a great sense of humor and I kind of felt like a good friend was taking the pictures. The experience was totally enjoyable - and as a bonus, I have wonderful pictures of a great day. I even got a little teary when I first looked at them.

Jennifer Brindley Photography - Fabulous!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

The one shown above! And one taken of our centerpieces at the wedding reception. Jennifer is amazingly creative with a genius artistic eye!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Jennifer found a way to blend in with the guests and the wedding setting. Her equipment was not super bulky. She didn't get in anyone's way. The posed shots and the action shots were both incredible. She captured some amazing expressions that displayed people's emotions in the action shots. She also was able to capture people's best features in the posed photos.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had our engagement session and photos done through Jennifer. There were phenomenal. She included our save the date cards, the engagement photo session, the 6 hours wedding photo session. Also, she included an 8 x 10 matted signature photo for wedding guests to sign at the reception. And a coffee table album. - Great value!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was friendly, upbeat and gave good directives without being pushy. It really seemed like she was enjoying herself. Her attitude was well received by our guests. During the evening, people commented to my husband and I about how talented and professional Jennifer was.
