Jeff did a fantastic job at our wedding. He knew exactly how and where to setup the shots and every picture came out beautifully. His second photographer grabbed tons of awesome photos as well and we are very happy with how they all came out. I would highly recommend Jeff for any wedding. More...

My recommendation is simple: hire Jeff. You will not be disappointed. We chose a package that included engagement photos also. We got great pictures from that as well as the wedding. We have had so many compliments on our photos. Our guests loved that he set up a monitor and played a slideshow of pictures from earlier in the day. More...

Jeff and his associate did a fantastic job with our engagement and wedding photos! He was so easy to work with and didn't slow anything down during (what I'm sure is for everyone) a very busy day! We got all of the photos we wanted and then some and processing was done so quickly! I would recommend Jeff to any bride and groom. We met with a couple of photographers before him, who we were less than impressed with. Not only was Jeff cheaper, I'm confident that he did a better job. More...

I absolutely recommend Jeff for wedding photography! I have worked with him twice, once as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and last month for my own wedding. My friend’s pictures were so beautiful that as a bridesmaid 5 years ago I told myself if/when I got married I would be hiring Jeff! It was the easiest and best decision we made in wedding planning. He is easy to work with and takes absolutely stunning photos. One of my favorite features is the monitor that he sets up at the reception that plays a slide show of photos taken earlier in the day. Our guests loved it and there was a crowd around it all night. We got access to the online gallery one week from the wedding. We were sitting on the beach on our honeymoon and looking through the pictures. We got about 5 photos into the gallery of hundreds and I turned to my husband and said, “this is worth every penny” and he couldn’t have agreed more. You have one chance to get these photos right and Jeff and his assistant photographer, Nick, nailed it! More...

Jeff and his assistant photographed my sister’s wedding. They were awesome to work with. They were kind and patient with all our little kids. They captured the day perfectly. The images at the reception were such a highlight for the guests. And the pictures themselves- amazing!! If you choose Jeff you won’t be disappointed. More...

Jeff was the best wedding photographer! I looked at at least 20 other photographer webites before finding Jeff. Once I saw his pictures, I knew he was the photographer for us. Jeff responded quickly to my inquiry and set up a meeting with my husband and me. After talking with him, we saw how detail oriented he is and how hard he works to capture the emotion of every moment. We knew that our day would be photographed perfectly with Jeff! On our wedding day, he worked so hard the entire day. He arrived at 10:30 for getting ready pictures and was still there at 11pm photographing our final dance. Our guests even commented how attentive Jeff was. He did a great job making sure every photograph we wanted was taken, as well as staying organized so we stayed on schedule. I cannot wait to get my pictures back and re-live the entire day! More...

Jeff was really great to work with. He was responsive, thorough, and patient (we had a lot of questions). He had good recommendations for photo locations and we were really, really pleased with his professionalism and the quality of his work. On the day of our wedding, Jeff was great at keeping things moving so that we stayed on schedule, which is not something I knew I needed in a photographer, but was IMMENSELY helpful on the day. I would absolutely recommend Jeff Schaefer Photography for wedding and engagement photos. More...

I was first interested in Jeff Schaefer Photography because of the gorgeous photos I saw on his website (seriously, go check those out) but Jeff really goes above and beyond just great photos. He's clearly passionate about wedding photography and captures everything on the big day including lots of candid moments and small details as well as all the posed portraits. Compared to other weddings I've been in with other photographers Jeff was hands down the best at giving suggestions for posing and backgrounds and getting all those group pictures done quickly and effectively. He is also so fast and organized in getting your photos back to you, we had some playing at the reception (definitely a crowd pleaser) and all of them on a zip drive waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon!

We cannot thank Jeff enough for the beautiful job he did with our son’s wedding. The pictures are fabulous and it is incredible to us that he got them to us so quickly. Most importantly to us, though, was the ease and comfort we had working with Jeff. It made a world of difference to connect with the vendors of your wedding and Jeff was truly professional and very personable. We appreciate that. Thank you again for everything. More...

For anyone looking for a photographer, I would absolutely recommend Jeff for your pictures! He did our engagement as well as wedding pictures and we could not be happier with how they turned out! They were beautiful! He also had great recommendations for locations for wedding pictures and was able to get in plenty of pictures in a short time with such a big wedding party. Jeff is very professional and organized which made taking pictures stress free! Highly recommend! More...

Jeff was fantastic! We love our wedding and engagement photos. He worked with us before our wedding to get on the same page on the type of photos we wanted and our timeline for the day. I really appreciated the way he communicated with our families. Some of our family members wanted to take their own photos, and he patiently let them take their photos before taking his own photos.

He captured our wedding in a timeless way. We didn't want pictures that would look out of date in a few years. Our photos are not over edited and are classic, just what we wanted!

What first caught our eye on Jeff's photos is the way he captured emotion. And he perfectly captured the emotions of our day.

We're really happy with Jeff's work and his service. He was always easy to contact and communicate with.

Jeff did my engagement and wedding photos. He did an amazing job and we are so happy with the photos!

Jeff was our engagement and wedding photographer 3 years ago, and to this day I still cannot believe how lucky and blessed we were to have him to capture our special day. The quality and quantity of our photos still blows me away every time I go through them. I have had many friends be extremely dissatisfied with their wedding photographer/photos and it makes me sad that they didn't have the positive experience and results I had. Jeff was organized, professional, courteous and always on schedule while keeping an upbeat positive attitude the entire day. (And we had our photos taken outside in the middle of August, which wasn't easy!) He took so much stress and responsibility off of my shoulders that I never once worried about that aspect of our wedding day. I knew and trusted he had everything covered. Jeff went above and beyond to make sure we got shots we would love. If I ever know someone who is getting married in the Cincinnati/Dayton area, I will absolutely recommend him 100%! More...

This man is just the best. He's detailed, professional, has a good eye, is so personable, and a lot of fun. The second photographer he used for our wedding day, Morgan, was just as delightful. I cannot say enough great things about Jeff, his photography, Morgan, and my experience working with them.. My wedding guests haven't stopped talking about his photographs since Jeff provided a preview at my reception. Even my hard-to-please husband was impressed - and that's very high praise indeed! Every positive review given and every award bestowed is earned. There's nobody better. More...

I can honestly say that there is nothing negative I can say about Jeff. He is an extremely patient, easy going and fun photographer who takes stunning photos. For my engagement pictures I wanted to make sure that my dog was in them and Jeff was so patient with her and was able to capture amazing pictures of her and us around the city. Never once showed that he was annoyed with our dog. For our wedding he made a very detailed timeline and was on time to take pictures. He also sent out a list to get all the pictures I wanted to ensure he didn't miss any pictures I wanted. He took pictures of things I never would have thought to take pictures of, like the perfume I wore for my wedding, which is great for us to look back on. My dog was also in the wedding and he made sure to include her in a lot of pictures and I got a lot of different pictures with just her and I (I may be slightly obsessed with my dog and Jeff knew this and made sure that I got lots of pictures with her). He was so patient. He and his wife were amazing throughout the whole wedding day taking pictures of everything. At the reception he had a slide show set up with pictures from the ceremony as well as some pictures from our engagement session with the website for our wedding pictures! My husband and I were so shocked when we saw that and our families and guests LOVED that! Even one of our wedding coordinators said she took one because they were too cute! Amazing idea! He and his wife are so friendly and open to picture ideas and also very patient when our families take forever to set up for pictures. Jeff is top rated for a reason, highly recommend him! More...

Jeff was recently our wedding photographer and I must say that I am 100% pleased with the results from our day. He captured the most beautiful photos I could have ever imagined. Our wedding day was a long one as we had our ceremony in Indianapolis, Indiana followed by a dinner and reception between Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. Jeff never once looked tired or overwhelmed and he was always prompt and ready to suggest different pictures. He was so professional and courteous throughout the day too. Our ceremony being a sacred and religious one can be hard to capture on film. Jeff did a fantastic job capturing the essence of our holy temple on the grounds outside while observing the sacredness of what we hold dear to us in the temple. He was reverent and respectful of our religious views, which was wonderful. At my reception all of my guests were so impressed with him. The comments, both during and in the days following the wedding day were, "Your photographer was great! He was everywhere!" and "Your pictures are absolutely stunning!" I agree 100% with my guests. Jeff truly was there capturing every single moment he could and most of the time he was a one man show! The most impressive thing for my guests was his slide show of the pictures from the day. As he took photos they were shown on a slide show at the reception. It was so neat and unique. Everyone loved to see what had happened earlier in the day since not everyone attended the ceremony. Jeff's 2 week policy is fantastic. He was so quick to have my photos ready to go and our photo book ready to share. I am so excited for the photo book. It was so easy to do as Jeff takes your comments and works through the building process with you to make it a perfect fit for you! He is so easy to work with and is quick with getting your photos back to you. If you are in the Dayton/Cincinnati area, do yourself a favor and hire Jeff Shaefer as your photographer. You won't be disappointed and he will take away some stress from your most special day! More...

While we blew our photography budget out of the water to have Jeff shoot our wedding, we couldn't have been happier that we did. From the minute we sat down with Jeff, we could tell that he really cared about what he did, and it certainly showed in our engagement and wedding photographs. He has an eye for unique shots, but still was receptive to our ideas as well - very much appreciated by this bride!

I would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants a stellar experience, and wonderful photos to last a lifetime!

My husband and I knew that choosing the right wedding photographer was going to be the most important part of maintaining memories from our wedding day, and we could not have been more pleased with Jeff Schaefer. It was the combination of his experience in shooting weddings as a full-time job, couple with his experience in the photography industry, that made him a perfect choice for our wedding. And boy, did he deliver! Throughout the wedding planning process, he was very available, answering our emails as we had them, and also working with us on setting up our wedding day timeline. And on the day of the wedding, you could not have asked for a more professional person keeping the stress level low recognizing his job is one of the most important ones that day! He followed the timeline perfectly and rolled with the punches as we needed more time here and there; he captured the various combinations of photos we asked for; he worked through some intense winds to capture some incredible shots; and he stayed through the entire wedding ceremony! Not only did he turn all of our wedding pictures 4 days after our wedding, but the pictures were OUTSTANDING. I don't know how he did it, but he was able to capture our personalities, our expressions, and really highlight the fun of the day. I don't even know how I am going to create an album because they are all SPECTACULAR. What's even more impressive is, when we shared the pictures with our friends and family, they were all saying the same things! Overall, everyone was impressed with the quality (and quantity as he had 1100 pictures) of the pictures Jeff shared back with us, as well as the way he just captured our personalities and behaviors perfectly. I continue to go through the pictures on a daily basis and I don't think it will ever get old. Thank you Jeff, and I highly recommend him for any bride and groom looking to make a great decision about preserving the memories of their big day. More...

Jeff photographed our wedding last September and did an amazing job! We were very happy with how our wedding photos turned out. We ended up with some awesome sunset photos and a great mix of candid as well as traditional photos throughout the day. Jeff was very easy to work with and very organized, which we really appreciated. He captured not only the major wedding and reception events, but also all the little wedding details including decorations. Overall, we were very happy we chose Jeff to photograph our wedding and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer. More...

Great photos! This was the one thing my husband and I splurged on towards our wedding. The photos from this day will last forever so its important that they be perfect. Jeff is an extremely talented photographer and my photos are stunning. He offers three different packages of varying prices to match your budget and also offers hardback photo books that he himself designs (of course allowing the opportunity for your input). I had no idea of the types of pictures I wanted so Jeff took charge and put all of us in poses that resulted gorgeous pictures. I had a large amount of people to get pictures of (6 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, 3 jr bridesmaids, flower girl, ring bearer, and 3 ushers, not to mention family members....) and somehow he managed to control the situation and achieve a fantastic result. I couldn't be happier with my pictures. If I had to pick one complaint it would be I wish it had gone faster, simply because it was 90+ degrees out that day and I was sweating like crazy...but then again, you can't rush art. I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for truly beautiful and memorable pictures from their wedding. In my opinion no other photos compare to his. More...

He did an amazing job! He was very professional and has had a lot of experience in the industry! We did his all day package so we had pictures covering getting ready, our first look, three different locations before the ceremony, the ceremony, and lots of reception fun! He was so well prepared! Together we came up with a time line and had everything planned out creating a stress free day! He had great examples/ opinions on where to go before the ceremony. He also knew the ins and outs for example if we needed to have a permit for a specific spot or if we needed to give a deposit to reserve a place! We had a plan A and then a plan B just Incase the weather was an issue. I loved this because I felt like no matter what was going on with the weather I was still going to have great pictures and I did! The pictures were amazing and we get tons of compliments on them! He was great to work with and produced the pictures very quickly with in. 2-3 weeks!! Everything was great! More...

Jeff Schaefer was the best!! During one of the most hectic times of your life, Jeff made the photography portion of our wedding perfect. He was efficient in the weeks leading up the to wedding and during the rehearsal and wedding he know just what to do. We just trusted him from the beginning and the pictures were perfect. We used his pictures for the thank you cards for the wedding and several guest and family members purchased the photos as they were great. I would highly recommend Jeff for any event that you have....especially for weddings. Thanks Jeff!! More...

Jeff photographed our wedding at The Phoenix in February.

There are many photographers out there, and it can be hard to choose. My first standard was this: was there at least 1 picture on the photographer's website that was so good that I would willing to frame it and hang it on my wall, even if it was a picture of somebody else (i.e. not me and my spouse). Jeff was one of the few that met that standard. He's got some really amazing shots on the website.

But remember, every photographer is going to put the best of the best on their website. You can't pick a wedding photographer based on their 1 best photograph, because that's not what you are hiring them to do. You don't want 1 good picture and 499 mediocre ones. You want to pick your photographer based on their average work, because that's what most of the photos you get are going to be. So beyond the website, you need to look at sample albums where every picture in it was drawn from the same wedding. That is more representative of what you are actually going to get than a website gallery.

I'd say one of Jeff's strengths is his albums. Jeff's albums are nicely laid out and formatted. They really tell the story of your wedding day from start to finish. All of the pictures are solid on their own, but they really together better in the album. Some photographers we interviewed just did not have attractive album layouts. Some did not even have any sample albums for us to look at. Jeff's album is fantastic and will be a keepsake for years to come.

Beyond that, it was all about personal connection. The bigger studios do good work, but it's going to be a little less personal. With a smaller studio, you get that personal connection. To us, that was important. Jeff was pretty laid back and his style just matched our style well. He was super organized, with a detailed timeline and a specific shot list. We are structured, detailed oriented people so we worked well with him.

Overall,definitely recommend

I highly highly recommend Jeff ! We used him for my daughters wedding and were so impressed that we had to have him for ours! At that time he even drove all the way from Cincinnati to South Bend Indiana so they could have their engagement pictures taken at Notre Dame! I also loved the pictures he had done at our venue for other weddings. I was especially worried being an older bride how I would look .. He listened to all my concerns and the pictures turned out beautifully. He had them posted online in a week and got the CD and album ready faster that I thought possible. We could not be any happier!

Jeff did an excellent job at our wedding! He captured some beautiful pictures outdoors at the golf course before the wedding! The pictures look so natural and in the moment. The great pictures continued at the church and the reception hall. One of my favorite things was the picture slideshow that was running at the reception. It was great that our guests got to view pictures that were taken earlier that afternoon. I would definitely recommend Jeff if you want to fully capture your perfect day! More...

Jeff was fantastic!I booked him over a year in advance off of a recommendation.Over the next year and a half, I met with him three times in person and excahanged many emails.  He was always willing to answer my questions.He has a very thurough process where we go through every picture we want taken to ensure that everything is captured.  I would also send him shots that I wanted something similar.The day of he was on time and ready to go.  He split his time between the bridal suite and the groom's lounge so everything was captured.  He even found time to walk around the grounds and get pictures of decorations.He was very professional and gave us a ton of modelling tips and poses as well as took our suggestions for locations and looks.He was very accepting of the changing timeline and very flexible.He is a bit pricey, but believe it is worth it.

While we blew our photography budget out of the water to have Jeff shoot our wedding, we couldn't have been happier that we did. From the minute we sat down with Jeff, we could tell that he really cared about what he did, and it certainly showed in our engagement and wedding photographs. He has an eye for unique shots, but still was receptive to our ideas as well - very much appreciated by this bride! More...

We were so impressed with Jeff and his fellow photographer/videographers professionalism and eye for detail. They were able to identify special areas for photos and moments. Jeff and his team was extremely relaxed and appreciated as we never felt stressed or rushed the entire day. He has an eye for great spots for photos and will strive to include any photos or ideas you have. His timeline he creates for the day gives structure to the day and ensures all the pictures you want are taken.

Many of our guests commente on how Jeff and his team were available for shots, but not intrusive. The guests were impressed with the pictures available at the reception. Needless to say Jeff was terrific. Even though we have only received the proofs, we are excited to see edited photos and the video.

We highly recommend Jeff and can't speak highly enough of his talent and professionalism.

Jeff Schaefer and his assistant did a fantastic job during our 4th of July wedding. Jeff is a great photographer! We were very pleased with his patient, professional, and creative style. Jeff was an absolute pleasure to work with. Picking the perfect wedding photographer is extremely important and we could not have been more pleased with our decision. We are excited to have such great memories to look back on and thanks to Jeff, reminiscing will be so much fun. Thank you, Jeff for helping to make our special day so memorable and for the time, effort, and hard work you put into taking such wonderful pictures. We would recommend Jeff to anyone and the reasonable price was an added bonus! More...

We hired Jeff to do both our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. He recently took our engagement photos and they turned out amazing! It was supposed to rain, and it was gloomy and very windy, but he stuck it out with us because of how hard it would have been to readjust our schedules. While my fiance and I both hate being the center of attention, Jeff really made us feel comfortable.

I only gave a rating of 4 on Responsiveness, because sometimes it takes a few days to get back to us. Also, while he warned us that because it's his busiest time of year and might take 3-4 weeks to get our pictures instead of the average 2 weeks, it took 5 weeks to get them. We understood though, and wanted him to devote time to our pictures and guarantee that they looked great. Not a huge deal.

We are really looking forward to working with Jeff again in October for our big day!

Jeff was some of the best money spent on our wedding. Everything you've read about him is true, you'll get amazing pictures, easy to work with, the list goes on.

He knows exactly what he's doing in any situation and is great at taking charge when he needs to. We used him for both our engagement and wedding pictures and we have close to a thousand amazing pictures documenting our engagement, ceremony, reception, and everything along the way. He even knows the area so well that he can help in a pinch if you need a good place to take pictures at.

Jeff is definitely a master at wedding photography!

Jeff in one word = AMAZING! He was so helpful prior to the rehearsal/wedding with answering the billion questions I had and helping me stamp out a timeline. The day of, he was so thoughtful. That is one word that I didn't think I could associate with a photographer, but he was. He went out of his way to make sure that we were all smiles and provided pictures that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Completely worth every penny and if I had to do it all over again - I'd pick him again and again! More...

I can not say enough good things about the job Jeff did at my daughter's wedding.

First, he was so organized and helped us plan for the wedding day.

On the day of the wedding he was very personable but did not try to dominate the event. At the wedding and reception, you hardly knew he was there, yet he took all the shots we wanted.

The pictures were fantastic. So many spectacular shots, both posed and candid.

The best part, though, was working with Jeff afterwards to create the album. He was so flexible and accommodating. He touched up photos, for example, to remove exit signs or other things in the background. He allowed us to move photos around and group them the way we wanted.

There were so many great shots that we ended up adding pages to the limit of what the printer could physically put in the album. Plus he gave us a CD with all the pictures, included his touched up photos.

When we received the final album, my wife just looked at it and cried. It was that good.

I am so happy that we picked Jeff and highly recommend him.

Jeff photographed our engagement session and our wedding and we could not be happier with the results. I was very picky in selecting a photographer and I believe that Jeff Schaefer is the one of the best photographers in the area and has the best value. Our photos are breathtaking and Jeff and his assistant did such a wonderful job capturing all the details and special moments of our wedding day. We have received so many compliments on our photos, and our guests LOVED the live photo booth at the wedding. He also set up a slideshow preview by the photo booth of the photos from the ceremony and formal shoots so everyone could see them right away! It was such a cool touch and something I've never seen before. I can't wait for the wedding album, which was beautifully laid out and available online for me to preview and edit (and I didn't make many changes). Jeff was easy to work with and I could just relax and enjoy the day, fully confident that everything would turn out beautifully. He and his assistant were both very professional and responsive to any requests or concerns I had on the wedding day. He even drove up to Notre Dame to shoot our engagement photos last year. Great service and truly incredible photographs! I can't recommend him enough! More...

I cannot express how awesome Jeff and his assistant were at our September wedding. He was so organized and knew exactly how to make our vision come to life without me having to ask. He knows exactly what to do and how to do it to get the perfect picture and nothing ever looks posed. He knows how to make your wedding stress free and makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. The pictures turned out even better than I imagined. There is a reason you need a good photographer on your wedding day. And Jeff is definitely it! I recommend him wholeheartedly!!!! More...

Jeff did a fantastic job capturing our wedding! There is a reason he is rated so highly and continuously receives awards each year as a top wedding photography - he is really GOOD! His assistant Morgan was great as well. Your wedding photographs are the only thing you get keep to remember the rest of your life - spend the money on the best photographer in Cincy, Jeff! Words of wisdom: Use the videographers Jeff recommends. It will make everyone's life a little easier. More...

My husband and I used Jeff Schaefer for engagement and wedding photos, and he was the perfect choice for us.

First off, my husband and I met at Ohio University, and Jeff made the trip out to OU for our engagement photos, understanding how special that location was to us. The photos turned out wonderfully, and he was willing to do any retouches that we noticed afterward (i.e. photoshopping out a garbage can that was in the background).

At our wedding, he fulfilled every promise, capturing unique, candid moments and helping us pose with our family and friends. I should add, his second photographer was a great addition; she helped me with my dress when she didn't have to when I couldn't count on my maid of honor. I thought the slideshow of wedding photos at the reception was a great touch that everyone loved.

I think this fact speaks for itself: Two of our friends booked Jeff for their weddings after seeing his work at ours, and another tried, but he was already booked on their wedding day.

The photographer was the biggest part of our budget (besides food) because I knew I wanted quality photos that I could look back on forever and remember and cherish that special day. Nearly one year after my wedding day, I can honestly say that Jeff was the only choice as I can still look at our (almost 1000) photos and know I have ever beautiful detail captured.

Jeff is worth the money and definitely worth trusting with your special day.

Although the weather did not allow us to have the ceremony outdoors as planned, he took advantage of breaks in the weather to capture awesome pre-wedding pictures. More...

Since photos capture so many moments of a wedding that would otherwise be forgotten, my wife and I were very deliberate about finding a top-notch photographer who would provide us with pictures of those beautiful moments. Jeff certainly delivered this and was worth every penny. Both he and his assistant were very professional (and also funny) as they were constantly looking for great moments to capture. We wholeheartedly recommend him.

And if that doesn't convince you, just look at all the amazing photos from his gallery!

Ladies,

You know when you take that picture of yourself that looks enough like you to pass as the real you, but in the absolute best circumstances? The one that instantly becomes your profile picture and everyone comments on how amazingly gorgeous you are?

Ok, I've never been one of those girls until Jeff Schaefer took my pictures! Every single picture was AMAZING and he caught my wedding party/guests in just as dazzling a light. Put it this way, I released my album and everyone is using his shot as their profile pic!

He's the best! His work includes the options to do engagement pics, rehearsal pics and of course the day of. As soon as I have a baby, Jeff will be taking those pics too!

Book him today!

We knew we wanted to book Jeff right when we started planning because we'd seen his awesome work for two of our friends' weddings and he definitely delivered for our wedding too!

We LOVED our engagement photos and have them hanging all over our house. we get so many compliments on the beautiful pictures and amazing scenery (my husband dipping me in the middle of the Roebling Bridge is SO cool and we'll treasure it all our lives)

Our wedding day was so fun with Jeff! Our guests loved interacting with him too. He was with us from the beginning all the way to the very end, capturing every minute! I think he spent more time with me than my own family :)

We got our pictures turned around very quickly and are blown away! My family is so happy with his work and we can't wait to hang the wedding pictures all around the house too! Jeff, thank you for making our wedding so perfect and helping us to capture our memories!

Our photos turned out absolutely beautiful and we couldn't be happier. The wedding album totally took our breath away when we saw it. My husband and I both are so excited to be able to share our wedding day photos with family and friends for years to come. Not only are Jeff and his team great photographers but they go above and beyond to make your wedding perfect. They make you feel special throughout the day giving you their undivided attention and making everything run smooth for your photos especially with the little things having an emergency bag prepared with hairspray, Tide stick, make-up, bobby-pins, etc. Thank you Jeff and Morgan. We look forward to doing another photo session with you in the near future. More...

He made the day of the wedding easy and everyone enjoyed seeing the photos from earlier in the day at the ceremony (he sets up a monitor to display them). He gets our highest recommendation! More...

One of the first things I started planning was the photographer. I found Jeff's website fairly easily, and was very moved when reviewing- the pictures were breathtaking! Unfortunately, I was operating on a very small budget. I was disappointed to learn the price of photographers. After speaking with a friend who worked with Jeff on his wedding, I decided to meet with him and give him a shot. Jeff was clearly a very experienced photographer. He helped us plan the day to the minute, allowing us to capture the moments we wanted, without wasting time and money. It was worth every penny and then some. I can honestly say that I am mad at Jeff for making it so hard to choose what pictures to buy! I love them all!!!!! Beautiful work!!!!! He even recommended that chapel we used! We enjoyed every minute of working with Jeff and his wife! More...

We met with several photographers before booking Jeff, and on initial meeting, he was the most put-together, professional, and accomodating. During the months/weeks/days leading up to the wedding, Jeff was easy to contact and responded to my emails/phone calls quickly. He is very organized, which I greatly appreciated as the wedding day has enough craziness of it's own!! On my wedding day, Jeff was on time, relaxed, and kept the day moving efficiently -- not to mention the photos were GORGEOUS!!! Everyone LOVED the photos taken earlier in the day that were displayed during the reception. We have just gotten our album in the mail and it is stunning as well. I would recommend Jeff to anyone - he was very much the calming influence I needed on my wedding day, and is an exceptional photographer who really delivers an amazing product. BOOK HIM NOW!!!!

I knew I wanted Jeff Schaefer to photograph our wedding based on my experience with him as a bridesmaid at my cousin's wedding 3 years earlier. I could tell he just knew how to get the images he wanted and the final pictures were proof.

During our initial meeting, Jeff was thorough so as to learn exactly what type of photos we wanted from our engagement session and wedding day. Jeff went to all lengths to get some perfect engagement shots in my parents backyard baseball field. Leading up to the wedding, he was patient as I worried about Hurricane Isaac. He had more than one back up plan but fortunately, we were able to do everything as initially planned.

The day of the wedding, Jeff and his assistant (Becky) made sure we were on time without ever making me feel rushed or like we were behind. Jeff made sure we were having fun all day long and helped to capture some fun moments on film. We took photos at my parents home and he was able to capture the scenery while portraying all of us beautifully. Probably most important was how Jeff captured the love Ben and I have for each other - we are glowing in our pictures and he captured our silly smiles and laughs througout the day. You can see the happiness and fun all of our wedding guests had too! One important note - I didn't even notice him at the ceremony in the church, but the pictures he captured are priceless. The 900+ photos truly tell the story of our wedding day and I cannot wait to get our photo album.

If you hire Jeff Schaefer, you will get someone who will truly capture the love in the air. He will make sure you have a variety of different images that will tell the story of your wedding day. You can tell Jeff truly loves photographing weddings and working with everyone involved. Most of all, Jeff will make sure you look beautiful on your big day. And you will have a blast capturing every moment.

Jeff was the best! During our engagement pictures he proved to want great pictures despite what he may have to do (like laying on the freezing cold ground). he made the pictures look great without being too posed. The wedding day also did not disappoint! He showed up early to the venue and got some extra shots of me getting ready. He also was wonderful with the use of our venue for our pictures and was able to think of some amazing shots. He did again put the pictures, and us, first despite the extreme heat. He was not invasive during the ceremony and was very respectful of our church's photography policy. During the reception he put out a slideshow of all of the pictures from earlier in the day and everyone loved them! He did stay late and got some excellent photos. The were up on the website promptly and the book turned out amazing! He was always prompt with responding to me emails and phone calls, as well as very professional in all of his work.

Jeff managed to capture every key moment even though we forgot he was there most of the time. Both him and his assistant were very professional.
A great slideshow of ceremony pictures was ready and running as a slideshow near the door at our reception. Within a few days he had an album of pictures on Facebook. Only two weeks after our wedding he had proofs of all of our pictures and our photo album online for us to review.

We hired Jeff to be our photographer at our wedding based on all of the excellent reviews he has received over the years and he did not disappoint! I've been to a number of weddings where the photographer is bossy, intrusive, and rude, but Jeff was none of the above. We had some very loud personalities in our wedding party and Jeff and his assistant worked exceptionally well with all of them. At one point he even let one of my groomsmen take his camera for a little bit. Jeff really helped make the day all about us and not the photos, but at the same time captured some awesome shots! I would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone looking for the best wedding photographer in Cincinnati. Oh, and he had all of our wedding pictures posted online within 3 weeks!

Jeff did a great job photographing my wedding. The pictures turned out beautiful, and he captured every moment so well. It was a pleasure to work with him and his team, from the start of the planning process to the last photo of the wedding day, and we were especially impressed with how quickly he got the album and online gallery together. Thanks Jeff!

Jeff is an extremely nice guy who seems genuinely concerned with getting the best pictures possible on your wedding day. He is easy to work with and has an incredible turn around time. He set up a slideshow at our reception with pictures from earlier in the day and within a few weeks we already have access to the entire collection! Amazing! More...

We found Jeff's website after seeing his photos in a Cincinnati wedding planner. The composition of his photos really stood out compared to the others we looked at. In addition to excellent photography Jeff was very organized, professional, and very easy going. We love our photos! We would recommend him to anyone. More...

Jeff's work is awesome. I am a photographer as well, and wanted great photos from my wedding. I am so happy we chose Jeff. He went out of his way to communicate with us and help us beyond the scope of just photography (since I'd never been married and didn't know what I was doing). Everyone LOVES the photos, including me. I couldn't be happier. As a photographer, I know what kind of investment it takes. Jeff has the best lenses and lighting available. He did an awesome job of scouting the site (outdoor ceremony) and knowing how to set up beautiful formal shots. He has also been very patient with us from the actual wedding shoot, my uncooperative bridal party, and now while we're tweaking our album. His assistant, his wife, was also very kind and helpful. He is totally worth every penny. Choose Jeff. You won't be disappointed. More...

Our pictures are gorgeous! Jeff is very easy to work with and good at what he does. We had a problem with our album (he accidently put a couple pictures from the draft in instead of the final copy) but he took care of the problem right away and even delivered the new album to our door when it was ready. Make sure you have enough time between ceremony and reception because Jeff likes to take his time to make sure the pictures are great. I would definitely recommend him to other brides. More...

Jeff did a wonderful job with our engagement and wedding photos. He was easy to work with and was very patient with us as we went over many small details concerning our album. He answered all of our questions and posted our wedding pictures in a very timely manner. One of my favorite things Jeff did was set up a monitor with the pictures he took at the ceremony at our reception, so all the guests could see them. It was definitely a crowd pleaser and some of my friends have already booked Jeff for their weddings this year. More...

He knew what poses would look good, what angles, and he made sure to capture every moment which was very important for us. He does an amazing job and I would refer him to anyone I know. He was great!

Jeff did an amazing job. He listened to what we wanted and provided excellent suggestions on thing we didn't even know that we wanted. We didn't have to worry about anything and just let him do his thing. He got a massive number of shots without imposing himself on the festivities. The price was great for the quantity and quality of pictures we got. More...

In a word, Jeff is amazing. The quality of our photographs far exceeded our expectations, which were already very high after seeing his previous work. The experience of having him share our wedding day with us was so special. He really does feel like a friend by the time your wedding day comes and you are sad to see him go at the end of the night. The results of his work are something to be forever treasured. The album he designed for us truly is spectacular. Everyone we have shared it with just "ooo"'s and "ahhh"'s the whole time, saying how it is the best wedding album they have ever seen. It really is a work of art and perfectly captures every moment and emotion we had on our special day. Choosing him as our photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding day. More...

We used Jeff for our wedding in August 2009, and we couldn't have been happier!
He was so professional and so easy to work with. He made the day about us, instead of just taking pictures. He showed up early and even stayed a little late! Our favorite part was that he surprised us at the reception when he hooked up a portable tv with s slideshow of pictures he had taken throughout the day!!
We recommend him to everyone we know that wants an awesome photographer!!!
