engagement pictures. we decided to take ours in Laguna. I remembered Jeff passing a car garage, stopping, and saying this spot is perfect for a pretty rad picture. Thinking it was strange, but deciding to go along with it. When we saw the picture, I was wow-ed. Trust his creativity! More...
Jeff and her entire crew are amazing! He has done our engagement photos, our wedding photos, and our wedding video. We get multiple compliments on our photos every single day. Jeff really has an eye that you need from a photographer. He goes the extra mile to get those really good shots. We are so happy with our photos and would choose him time and time again! Photo and video are something you have to splurge on because it’s the only thing that truly lasts a lifetime. Jeff and his team are the absolute best. We cannot wait to see our video! More...

Jeff and Amber were fantastic to work with! I was refered to them by a friend and was so excited when I found out they would be available to shoot my wedding day! ! Amber and Jeff were so awesome to work with leading up to the wedding, they always answered emails quickly and offered great creative advice. So the wedding day finally came and Jeff and Amber plus their team did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable! They are so fun, so laid back and probably the most talented artisic people we have ever met! Sadly we had the worst weather ever on our big day but Jeff and Amber made it the best experience possible! Our pictures came back wayyyyyyyyyyyt sooner than expected which was a great surprise AND they were AMAZING. They exceeded our expectations totally, we are so beyond thrilled with the amazing photos and the friendship we now have with two special people! More...
Photography is an art form and Jeff and Amber are amazing artist!! They have my highest recommendation!!!

Such an amazing experience working with these guys. They created beautiful engagement pictures and then my wedding pictures came out ever better than I ever could've imagined. They made my dreams a reality. They are super easy going and were totally chill with my crazy family. They got beautiful shots, soooooooo beautiful and creative. I love them about would recommend them over and over again. Pure love More...
Our experience with Jeff + Amber- Wedding Photography was more than we could have expected. Amber was very accommodating of requests and worked with us to accomplish what we had envisioned for our wedding day photography. She offered lots of suggestions and helped us select photography locations and even recommended various vendors as we are not from the area. Brandon, a wonderful member of the team, shot our wedding and made sure everything was on par with what we had discussed with Amber. He meshed very well with our family and friends and definitely has a creative eye. Our photography turned out amazing and we are so thrilled with it to remember our special day. I highly recommend this team! Thanks guys! � More...
We found this team for our wedding last month and are so happy! They are rebranding as "We Are BIG Pictures", so if you're still looking, hit them up there!
For everything pre-wedding, they were fast to respond every single time I had a question (which was often) and offered real opinions and suggestions. If I asked about certain services they offer, they would NOT just try to up-sell it. They were honest and thought about all of the details in order to come up with the best option for US. This is a huge quality for a business to have and I respect them so much for just being real, down-to-Earth people.
They have exceptional talent and are able to pose you (even the most awkward of people, like myself) so beautifully. But they don't really pose you, they just find unique angles and capture real moments while offering slight suggestions. It's magic how they work. We received about 1000 photos and we loved almost every single one (with the occasional awkward photo excepted; i.e. mid-talking, which is to be expected). No-joke, about 200 are considered my "favorite" because I simply cannot choose fewer. The one kinda down-side is that yes, it was expensive. But in the end I feel like we got our money's worth. And honestly all wedding photography will be expensive if you want this kind of quality.
Day of the wedding, they were even better than we expected. The entire group was so relaxed and fun, they meshed perfectly with our own personalities and made it so much easier for us to relax and feel comfortable. I'm extremely camera-shy and they made me actually WANT to pose in front of the camera. We were joking around all day, yet they remained professional and never missed a moment. Plus, one of them got down on the dance floor with our guests and busted his own moves, it was great!
If you're ballin on a budget, don't skimp on the photos because those capture the memories. And it's so much fun to relive this day through the pictures (even after only a month). More...
We had a great experience with Jeff Janke Photography. Jeff and Amber were incredibly professional and fun to work with. They understood our vision and put out a great product. We highly recommend them for your wedding! More...
Dynamic, fun, and creative duo! Really made the whole process special and fun! Love these guys!
They are awesome! I now have my new photographer for when I need more events :) they are great! Thank you for everything!
Jeff and ambers team was amazing. My pictures came out beautifully and I love each and every one of them!
Wow! Just wow! The Jeff + Amber photography team did an amazing job capturing our special day. Not only did they get epic shots and clear audio in 40 mile an hour gusts of wind (You can't tell Mother Nature to calm down! Believe me I tried that day!) but they also calmed my nerves during the whole process. They assured us that they would still get rad shots and they did! We decided on a post session shoot right off the bat, which was the best decision. I was able to remain extra calm knowing I could still get the romantic shots I wanted with my love without the wind blowing my hair in his face. This photography team is incredibly talented, fun and professional. Communicating with them was a breeze and they made us feel comfortable during the entire process! More...
Jeff and Amber were great to work with. The engagement shoot was fun and spontaneous...we walked around San Juan Capistrano and found unique and colorful spots to use. They were so friendly and personable, we really just enjoyed spending time with them as people. It was a great way to get to know them and their style before the wedding day. The big day, they kept the high-strung bride (me) laughing and relaxed. They had great ideas at the venue for where to shoot pictures with the different groups of people. The entire time, from our first phone conversation to the present, they have been incredibly professional, warm, talented, communicative, and a pleasure to be around. More...
JJP is an excellent photography company to work with. Their team works with you to capture the most meaningful moments, as well as the most unique shots. We love our engagement and wedding pictures! Absolutely a must-have for any memorable event you want captured the best way possible. More...
Jeff & Amber were wondering photographers to work with. They were both comfortable, fun and professional. Our engagement & wedding photos turned out better than I ever thought possible - WE LOVE THEM! We are so lucky to have worked with two of the best photographers out there! More...
Jeff and Amber are the best husband/wife photography team in all of Arizona... possibly the country. They were able to capture every possible meaningful, sentimental, romantic, fun, goofy, and loving moment of the day.
They are able to take any possible setting and make it magical. We got married at Troon North Golf Club and it was the FIRST time they have ever been there. Even though it was new territory, they rocked it. They were able to find the coolest spots to shoot. They were so much to hang around with and they know exactly how to make the pictures turn out perfect. They were definitely experienced professional photographers. I have been to other weddings and seen other photographers work, and they do not even come close to comparing to the Jankes' photos. Here is a list of the "Pros". Sorry- there are no cons... honestly... none!
-Fun, Professional, Husband/Wife team
-Young goofy energy (yet focused)
-They guide you through every photo
-Make you feel comfortable in all the pictures
-Photo "Goof booth"... hilarious awesome studio quality images
-Quick processing time! (We received our photo DVDs in a week!)
-Excellent online image gallery
-Professional photo editing (we liked the "vintage" look of our pics)
-Fun/Creative ideas when shooting (edgy and unique)
-Great communication before/during/after the wedding
-Excellent involvement w/ other vendors
Words cannot say enough. They are simply the best.

Our wedding day was the most amazing day, and it was captured so beautifully by Jeff+Amber Photography. Our wedding was outdoors with a Sunset and lots of changing light. Amber handled each new situation effortlessly and her positive attitude was a MAJOR blessing with so much going on. We are truly grateful for photographs. We absolutely LOVE them.They are more beautiful than we could have imagined. We HIGHLY recommend Jeff+Amber. They are incredible people and very talented artists. Thank you!! More...
Really special pair of talents who are fun and professional. They have a lot of cool stories and experiences to share to help you connect with them, which was important to us when listening to direction for the best photos possible.
We did not have an far-reaching destinations for them; our engagement shoot and wedding were both in San Diego County but they still got there on time and ready to shoot. They knew both areas very well which helped in picking the they knew would work but also getting creative for some new angles and environments.
Normally they are top of the line expensive which we would not have been able to afford. Luckily they worked with us to get down to a price we could meet because our wedding was out of season and not on a weekend. Otherwise we could not afford them because they are worth top dollar.
I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the quality of the photographs from the engagement shoot and the Big Day. Not every shot can be a masterpiece but they delivered more masterpieces than I can count. Some in sunlight, some in b&w, some night, some day.
Both Jeff and Amber were there to shoot the wedding. They seemed to have fun and hit every request on our photo schedule which was NOT a short list, especially with family requests. Both the shots of the environment and objects (site, decorations, flowers, etc.) and the people were equal in high quality and composition.
I can't thank them enough for doing what they did for us. Everything they gave us turned out AMAZING!! More...
Jeff Plus Amber photography is amazing, if you're looking for a talented bunch of people who really know what they are doing, STOP and pick Jeff Plus Amber. My husband and I had the luxury of working with Jeff and Amber for our engagement shoot. When we met them it seemed like we knew them forever, they were easy to talk to and made us feel extremely comfortable. We’re not photogenic people, but they made our photo shoot so MUCH fun! Our pictures came out flawless and so incredible. For our day of wedding we worked with Amber and Brandon. They truly captured every special moment we had and got epic shots of our family & friends. When we received our photos I was blown away with how phenomenal they were and how there were some shots I didn’t even know they were around for. We also booked their cinematography company with them known as The Big Pictures. Mike, Erin and Ryan were just so amazing! With Mike and Erin the moment I met them I felt such a connection, like I could talk to them for hours about my husband and I’s love story and everything else in our lives. Our personal interviews for our video were so special and its because of Mike and Erin. Mike and Erin are a married couple who truly seem to love, love and just are so excited to be apart of your special day. As far as Ryan he was so present and truly engaged in our special day. I could go on and on about how fan-freakin-tastic this team is, but I don’t want to ramble more than I already have. Just simply know Jeff & Amber along with their amazing team is knowledgable, professional, fast at responses, truly caring & damn good at what they do. Seriously stop debating & call them! More...
Jeff+Amber did an amazing job shooting our engagement and wedding photos. They captured the emotions and day beautifully! Amber got sick the day of our wedding and the substitute photographer stepped in beautifully . Amber was proactive in settling the difference between the cost of our packages by offering a wedding album or a price correction. They were always timely and professional. We opted for the wedding album and am really glad we did because it is stunning. More...
Jeff and Amber are amazing! They are so personable, creative, talented and professional. Our ceremony was later in the day and I was a bit stressed about how the lighting would be for our outdoor pictures with the sun going down. Jeff and Amber were still able to capture all the moments perfectly. Our photos came out looking so natural and exactly as I wanted. We would highly recommend!! More...
I felt incredibly lucky to have jeff and amber as my photographers. they made my life so much easier. they not only gave me pointers for pictures but important tips to remember during the wedding. Super friendly. They both have an incredible eye for beauty -true artist! More...
My husband and I were beyond happy with Jeff and Amber! Their work is exquisite and we couldn't be happier with our photos and videos!
We were so grateful to have worked with Amber for our wedding this past September, this review is long overdue! I have no words for how happy we are with the photos. They are absolutely everything we could have hoped for and more. They did an amazing job capturing so many special candid moments with our family and friends and really helped the day flow smoothly. Thank you so much, you guys are amazingly talented and we couldn't be happier! More...
We liked that Jeff and Amber could take care of both our videography and photography needs. They were very professional, accommodating, and fun to work with! We used them for both our engagement photos and the wedding and were very happy with all of our photos and video! They were easy to work with, easy to communicate with, and responsive. We really enjoyed our experience and would look to use them for any big events in the future! Thanks for the wonderful memories! More...
We interviewed several wedding photographers in and around the Monterey Bay area. Most of them acted like they were doing us a favor and all the prices were OUTRAGEOUS.
Well, just before we signed the contract with one of them we went to a friend's wedding in San Marcos, CA and that is where we met Jeff & Amber. We spoke to them briefly there as to not interrupt the photography of the wedding but we were able to skype the following week. From there very beginning they made us feel genuinely excited that we had selected the right team and they were less than 1/2 the price of the photographer we were about to choose. The day of the wedding came and My bride and I were a little worried that they may be late since they were coming from SoCal to our wedding location in Carmel but they were a early.
From the very beginning of the day, Jeff and Amber made us feel very at ease and made us feel like we were the most important couple in the world. That's right, we had two photographers for a lot less than just one of any of the others we interviewed! Let's not get off topic though. I am NOT photogenic and I do NOT like my picture taken but they were very understanding and they made everything SOOO fun. By the time the majority of the ceremony, wedding party, Bride and Groom photographs had been taken, Jeff & Amber had been such a delight that they felt more than just a vendor and more like friends who we invited to our wedding. We cannot praise them enough for help our day go off without a hiccup. A couple of weeks after our special day amber sent us a link to the photos. There is only one word that can describe the photographs...., AMAZING!!!! (said with jazz hands).
One last note and this is to Jeff & Amber. If ya'll read this know you two are absolutely wonderful people and photographers who I cannot praise you enough. Thank you so much for being part of our day. More...
Booking Jeff and Amber was the best decision we made for our wedding day! They are truly talented and were an absolute pleasure to work with. My only regret was not also choosing to do a video. Thanks a million Jeff + Amber! More...
We hired Amber and her associate, Brandon, after doing much research online and interviewing several photographers. We ultimately chose Jeff+Amber for a number of reasons: 1) we loved the quality and style of the photos in their portfolio. Not only were they unique, but they had so much more life than the typical "cookie cutter" wedding photos. Their ability to capture raw emotion in an image is impressive, and you can see their talent in post-production as well. 2) we felt their pricing was competitive 3) Meeting Amber over skype sealed the deal. Our personalities clicked and she seemed equally as interested in making sure we would be a good fit. Leading up to the day, her communication was on point & thorough. She coordinated seamlessly with our other vendors who she had never worked with. Day of, they were on time, organized & excited! They found the best locations for unique & beautiful getting ready photos, & coordinated a perfect first look as well as bridal party & family portraits. Everybody had a blast working with them. They were experts at blending into the background while still capturing the most amazing shots. They never got in anyone's way or blocked the view of the guests. There is nothing worse than going to a wedding and not being able to see the couple because the photog is blocking the view! We decided to do a post-wedding formal session with them in Sedona. Amber was flexible and accommodating scheduling the shoot. Again, we had fun and could sense the feeling was mutual. They were excited and made us feel comfortable. Their direction was helpful & they selected excellent sites for the shoot, both in terms of background & lighting. The turnaround to receive the images was quick, & we received all the digital images without any pressure to buy an album. We couldn't be happier with the finished product & our experience with Amber and Brandon. They will be, hands down, our first choice for any professional photo shoots in the future. More...
Jeff & Amber were amazing! We had them for our engagement and wedding shoot and both turned out better than we ever hoped! They were so much fun and made the two of us who aren't great in front of a camera very comfortable!! They listened to our ideas and did their best to make them all happen! Would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a wedding shoot! More...
Jeff + Amber are fantastic to work with! They are very responsive and both are incredibly creative! They took our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we were completely blown away with how they turned out! They both are so fun to work with and make you feel at ease. I would highly recommended them! More...
Jeff and Amber were one of the best investments of our wedding. They are so personable, down to earth, artistic and have such a beautiful photography style. They were so easy to work with and instantly became our friends. Our wedding photos are incredible and we have one of kind shots to remember our fairytale day for a lifetime! They created a breathtaking album for us that was done within two weeks. We have an incredible metal photo cover that we absolutely love! All of my friends who have been married, it took months for them to get theirs back. Jeff and Amber are dedicated to their customers and work extremely hard to please them. We definitely have them to thank! We highly recommend their services to everyone! More...
There is not one bad thing I can say about this dynamic team. They are amazing and make you fee comfortable in front of the camera ( which I am not ) our engagement pictures turned out wonderful, I cant wait for the wedding !
My husband and I loved working with Jeff + Amber! They captured magestic engagement and wedding photos for us that we will cherish forever! Not only are they amazingly creative and talented, they are easy and fun to work, so it feels like you are shooting with your friends. I'd work with them over and over again! More...
Jeff and Amber did photography for our engagement shoot and wedding day and I cannot be happier with our photos! Not only are our photos amazing, but they definitely made the process easy and fun. It may be intimidating to be in front of the camera, but Jeff and Amber make it easy to relax and be yourself. Looking back at our engagement photos and wedding day photos, it amazes me how much detail and realness they were able to capture in each one! Every shot is something special; my top favorites are the 'first look' that my husband and I had and the 'first dance' with my dad. My dad is not one to smile that often, but leave it to Amber to capture that. They truly captured our love story and the most heartfelt moments with our loved ones. I am so grateful for having worked with them and I will cherish our photos forever :) More...
We absolutely LOVED Jeff and Amber as our wedding photographers and videographers! They are creative and inspiring and our pictures turned out incredible! They had brilliant ideas for unique pictures. They were able to perfectly capture our wedding day! They are also amazing people to be around. Jeff and Amber are more than just wedding photographers, they are more like friends, who care about your special day and making every detail perfect! They have positive and fun personalities, which contributed to the fun on our wedding day! They were always responsive, and got us our wedding pictures and video quickly. We would HIGHLY recommend Jeff and Amber to any couple looking for brilliant photographers! More...
Jeff+Amber were a great team to work with! We used them for both our engagment photos as well as our wedding day. They made us feel extrememly comfortable and are full of creative ideas! We have received so many compliments on all our photos...they truly captured the best candid moments from our day! More...
I am so happy I found Jeff and Amber! My fiancé and I planned a last minute elopement and I wanted beautiful photos, so I reached out to Jeff hoping he may have availability. He did, and I am SO thankful for that!! Jeff and Amber were both there on time, and the entire process was just incredible! Because we came from out of town and I didn't really have time to plan out the ceremony part, I had planned on just walking up to my fiancé and getting married. Before I arrived Jeff had the amazing idea to turn him around, that way I could walk up behind him, hug him, and we had photos of the "first look" from that day. The fact that he took the time to do that for me just blew me away- he really went above and beyond. My Husband is kind of shy, and he normally hates taking pictures- but Jeff and Amber made everyone so comfortable and he really enjoyed the experience as well!! Jeff made sure that we got all of the pictures we wanted, and really took the time to help us get beautiful and creative photos. I would recommend him again and again and again, from a huge wedding to a maternity shoot to graduation pictures- this is your guy!! I wish we lived closer, but I would be willing to make the drive all over again just to have another photoshoot with Jeff and Amber. Thank you both again for making our day perfect!!! More...
Jeff and Amber were great to work with! They were extremely responsive throughout the planning process which was very important to us.
We were planning our Arizona wedding from San Francisco so it was crucial to work with vendors who were willing to talk through our ideas over phone and email.
On the wedding day Jeff and team were on time, professional, and ran the day like clock work! Jeff brings a ton of creativity to the table which allowed us to capture some truly unique shots!
Overall Jeff+Amber are a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend their services. More...
Amber and Jeff and their team deserve more than 5 stars. I wish the rest of our wedding vendors were as lovely, flexible, talented and professional as Jeff + Amber. My husband and I ran late to our engagement session (and I'm talking very late), and although, Jeff and Amber had a 4 hour drive to our location after shooting a wedding the night before, they didn't complain once and still gave us their all during the photo shoot instead of getting back in the car and turning right around. I knew from that afternoon that my husband and I would not regret booking them. Months later at our wedding, we had the worst weather in Sedona history in the month of May. Needless to say, I was stressed and crazy emotional when my flowers showed up entirely wrong and it was raining during my entirely outdoor wedding. Amber was the only vendor that I had hired that jumped into action and was more of a wedding planner/friend/therapist during the first few hours than just my photographer. And regardless of the freezing temperatures and craziness of the day, our pictures came out exactly how we had hoped... not your typical stand and pose wedding pictures. Amber and her team's talent and professionalism was present throughout each shot and throughout the entire day. Because of the rain, our wedding had started late and we were afraid our photographers were going to have to leave early because we had only booked them to a certain time. Nope, not Amber and her team. They stayed later for us even though they had a long drive ahead of them AGAIN. My husband and I did not know Amber and her team prior to booking them for our wedding but I can tell you that they were such a blessing to us that I remember thinking that I wanted them to sit down and join our dinner and enjoy the night with us just like the rest of our friends and family, not another wedding vendor. Do yourself a favor and stop shopping around for your photographers, book JeffPlusAmber, relax and enjoy! More...
We loved Jeff and Amber and their team! They make you feel so comfortable and help capture incredible pictures! They capture truly candid pictures as well as posed and everything we received we loved! You won't regret booking them for your special events! More...
Great people to work with! had a ton of fun with planning for the wedding and it was very easy.
Wow. That's all I can say about working with Amber and her team. We had a slightly less conventional wedding--it was only our immediate family (so 10 of us, total) and our reception was just a dinner in a private room a restaurant.
So the main thing I wanted from our wedding pictures were the gorgeous red rocks of Sedona looming in the background. And that--and so much more!--was delivered.
From the get-go, Amber was great to work with. We exchanged some emails in July, 2014, to get started (wedding details, sign the contract, etc.), and then we didn't talk much until January, 2015, when I was hammering out timelines, etc. She provided me with a timeline that they use a guide, and we followed that. So, first look around 1, ceremony at 5, and some pics after that and in between.
Everything--and I mean everything--was perfect. The day was so laid back and fun--with such a small group, we didn't have a ton of group photos to take, so it allowed Amber and her team to create some good set-ups for us while we all drank champagne. She came with two other photographers who captured candids and set up lots of shots. The best photos came after the ceremony, when my husband and I ran off to the woods with the photogs and got the most perfect pictures in the "magic light" where even the little bugs look like fairies.
Not only was the product exactly what I was looking for, but know that this is a great, fun, easy-going team. We all shared a lot of laughs during the day, they were very flexible if we decided we didn't like something or wanted to try something new, and they really, really took advantage of the venue. It's easy to get swept up into Pinterest and see all the shots you "should" do, but trust your photographer to really feel the situation, the location and the vibe of the day. That's where the real magic is, and that's what they captured. More...
We could not have been happier with our decision to use Jeff and Amber. They were so much fun and really took the time to get to know us as a couple to really capture our personal style in all the photos. They were professional and very organized. And the turn around time on the photos was super quick. I would highly recommend! More...
Jeff and Amber were always friendly, answered my questions, and made us feel comfortable. The pictures I have from our wedding day have a special place in my heart. My husband and I are beyond lucky to have the captured moments from our wedding that are artistic, reflective of our pedsonalities, and just a perfect freeze frame time moment of our wedding day. More...
We absolutely loved working with Jeff and Amber! They are so fun and easy work with! We have so many beautiful pictures and precious moments that were captured by them.
I must say a few words of appreciation for the crew we had photograph or wedding. Needless to say I know now how daunting of a task this must be dealing with swarms of wedding guests and a crazed bride trying to keep everyone in one place for pictures.
My husband and I were overly impressed by there professionalism and poise in such chaos. I loved hearing there artist ideas for certain shots & is clearly evident in the outcome of our pictures! I highly recommend each of them and it was a joyous experience to have them be apart of our day! Thank you so much!
Eric & Stacey Dahl
Jeff+Amber Photography was phenomenal. Everyone they brought with them was professional. Every request we had they were receptive to and we could not be happier with our experience.
We are so blessed to have had Jeff and Amber photograph our Engagement Session and Wedding. They are magicians behind the camera and true professionals of their craft.
They captured our events so magically and all of our friends and family are in awe of our photos. Jeff and Amber are the best so do not waiver if you are wondering if they are the photographers/videographers for you!
Thank you Jeff and Amber! More...
Jeff and Amber were great to work with. From day one, amber always responded quickly and was easy to work with. I loved that there was no time limit on the engagement photo shoot so that we were able to get all of the pictures that we wanted. Jeff and Amber both have really great ideas when it comes to photos, and we absolutely love the way our wedding pictures turned out More...
Amber and Jeff were wonderful to work with. Very communicative and flexible. They came up with great shot ideas and incorporated our ideas as well. Our pictures are so beautiful and I know that I will treasure them forever! More...
Simply put, Jeff + Amber are amazing. From the engagement session all the way through to our big day, they were completely professional where they needed to be but also felt like old friends so we had a sense of comfort and fun we weren't expecting. In the process, we got some great shots done and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Jeff and Amber get the job done and do it while always having fun and flexing their artistic muscles with new and unique photo ideas. So in other words...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! More...
They actually did our maternity pictures and they turned out amazing! From engagement to wedding to maternity pictures, we are always so happy with how great our pictures have turned out. So many compliments from family and friends. More...
My husband Andrew and I were recommended by a friend to use Jeff and Amber and we couldn't be happier. They made everything so easy. From the engagement shoot to the wedding day. When things went south the morning of the wedding Jeff did what he needed to do to make things a little more smooth. I am so excited to see the pictures. I know they will be nothing short of amazing. More...
"WOW!" is all we could say when we recieved our pictures back from Jeff and Amber.WOW! WOW! WOW! We are from Kentucky and were on vacation in Lake Havasu, AZ. Our wedding is next June but we were wanting to have engagement pictures taken and loved the thought of having them taken around the beautiful scenery of Lake Havasu. Being from far out of town we were nervous about trusting photographers we really knew nothing about for our engagment pictures, but decided to take the risk. I can honestly say that choosing Jeff+Amber for our engagement pictures was one of the BEST decisions we have made so far concerning our upcoming wedding. Jeff and Amber went above and beyond to make sure we were getting the pictures that we wanted. We had mentioned having some pictures taken around the lake, expecting to simply be AROUND the lake… When we arrived at Jeff and Ambers house they had their pontoon boat hooked up and ready to go! They took us out ON the lake to a little island where we got the most beautiful pictures taken. Jeff and Amber made the experience very relaxed and so much fun. We felt like we were just hanging out at the lake with friends rather than having pictures taken. They were so creative with different poses and made it their goal to reach perfection. I couldn't believe it when they had our pictures ready for us in a week, and we couldn't be more pleased. We love every.single.picture! Wedding planning is a very exciting time but can also be very stressful. Even the simple engagment pictures can be stressful as you want those perfect pictures! Jeff and Amber exceeded our greatest expectations. I would highly highly HIGHLY recommend them for any event! They are not only talented photographers but wonderful people who are truly passionate about what they do. If you are indecisive of a photographer consider your problem solved… Jeff+Amber Janke all the way! :) You won't be sorry, they are truly the BEST! More...
This is the second time Amber has photographed our family. Both times she patiently handled the busy the comes along with newborn and one year old photo sessions. We love this most recent session even more than our first and never thought that could be possible! Great lighting, great shots! Captured our little family perfectly! More...
From the time that we first saw their website, to the multiple meetings we had, and the event day... Jeff + Amber exceeded every expectation we had!
They were incredibly professional, fun, and the pictures turned out absolutely incredible!
We planned our Arizona wedding from New York, and we had no trouble coordinating every part of the event with them via Skype, phone calls, and text. I would definitely recommend their team for your event. Highly enjoyed working with them :) More...
Jeff + Amber and their entire team are absolutely outstanding. They don't just look for a pretty picture - they look at elements, surroundings, color, light, and capture beautiful photography.
We had one wedding guest say "I can't wait to see your pictures. They were always in the right place, at the right time and the detail in selecting their lighting was amazing."
Our wedding party was oversized, we had split families on one side that don't necessarily get along and the two moved everything along so smoothly, I couldn't imagine it going better.
There is something unique about their dynamic and communication as a couple - it sets a good vibe to the whole day. I could go on and on but just hire them - they are absolute pros (so is their team). We love our pictures and can't wait for the video!!! More...
You will not regret booking any services with Jeff Janke Photography. As a nervous bride, I was really concerned with sticking to a budget, while attempting to get the best possible pictures and video to capture the moments from my big day. I didn't want to compromise quality for price. Jeff and Amber have completely fair pricing and you will sleep well knowing that they are the one vendor you will never have to worry about. I had read reviews and seen videos and pictures of Jeff's work, which is the reason I booked him in the first place. Nonetheless, I knew the work would be good, but I was completely speechless after seeing the finished product from the wedding. Jeff has a way of transforming the ordinary to the extraordinary, while capturing every moment from my wedding day and putting it together into the perfect package. I feel like my wedding day looked like a modern Disney love story due to Jeff's creative magic. Ever hear of Erin and Matt Lawhorn.........? Watch out now because there is a new "it" couple in town. Ok so maybe that sounds over the top, but that is really how Jeff and Amber's work will make you feel! My husband and I were lucky enough to work with Jeff and can assure you that he is truly an artist, and possesses the type of talent that you don't come across every day. I've been to many weddings, seen countless wedding photos and videos in my life, and nothing looks like Jeff Janke Photography. I can't thank him enough for capturing my wedding day and documenting such beautiful memories to treasure forever. We were blessed to have him as our vendor. Until then, I hope I can renew my vows again one day and be fortunate enough to work with Jeff! You will be thinking the same thing after you see how beautiful his work is! More...
All we can say is WOW!!! We LOVE the outcome of our photos!! Jeff, Amber and their team were so awesome to work with. Always showing us the pictures along the way, they were so creative and nothing felt posed or cheesy. They are the best in the area, don't risk your wedding day photos with anyone else! I felt so confident with them going into it and they came through:-) More...
My fiance and I LOVED working with Amber and Jeff. When they promised an un-rushed engagement session they delivered on it.
Our session started in the afternoon and went well into the evening and then they had to drive back to Arizona (from California)! Talk about providing the best service to clients!
Their creativity is off the charts! I knew from browsing their work on the website that they would have no problem coming up with awesome and unique shots even with having no previous exposure to the venues we chose. They made us feel so comfortable (I can get a bit camera shy) that it didn't feel contrived, but like a relaxed time with friends. The turn-around time for the photos was so quick! I left the engagement session so excited to see the photos and I didn't have to wait long. They are the epitome of excellent wedding vendors and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to any couple wanting to do an engagement shoot. More...
So not only did Jeff plus Amber capture our wedding with amazing photos (which almost everyone we know said were the best wedding photography they had ever seen) they also made an amazing what I like to call "'mini-movie" out of our big day. We really didn't have any intentions of having a cinematic wedding film but decided to look at Jeff's "The Big Pictures" videos. It took about 30 seconds to know we had to have a film for ourselves. We knew if we didn't we would always regret it. The Big Pictures cinematic wedding films are unlike anything I have ever seen. They are totally unique and creative and super artistic which is everything I love! Jeff and his crew weren't only super freaking talented artists but they were ALL so fun and a blast to work with. For one the weather was awful on my wedding which I was completely distraught over and they worked so hard to make sure that even in the worst of conditions they got the best shots and made us have fun. Also, my husband and I are not models by any means so we were a little self conscious and they all made us feel completely comfortable and confident! We got our "mini-movie" really quickly and were in tears of how amazing it turned out!!!!!!!! I can't say enough good things about their photography and and their skills in videography! I know this is a super long review but it's because they are truly awesome amazingly talented people!!!!!' I feel like I not only have amazing pics/video but some really awesome friends too! :) More...
Jeff and Amber are very easy-going! They make you feel comfortable right from the start. They really know how to capture the moment and get some of the most unique shots! Working with Jeff during our engagement session was so much fun! We felt very relaxed and absolutely loved the results. I was also impressed at how quickly we received our photos! Now, we are really looking forward to working with them on our wedding day!!! More...
Words cannot even begin to describe how HAPPY I am with Jeff plus Amber photography. They are more than I could have ever hoped for in a wedding photographer. So far they have just done our engagement pictures, and they are PHENOMENAL. They had them edited so quickly, and during the shoot they were so sweet, and cool, and willing to try anything! I wanted something unique and artistic, and boy did they deliver! If you are looking for photos that look like you spent your whole wedding budget on photography, then these are your photographers!! More...
We loved working with Jeff and Amber. They took fantastic photos but more importantly they were incredibly professional and fun to work with. I was so worried about Paul being nervous since he doesn't like his picture taken but jeff put him completely at ease and our photos turned out wonderful More...
Jeff Janke photography was absolutely the best! They were professional, down to earth, and very accommodating to both my husband's schedule and my own. They really listened to what we wanted in terms of photography for our wedding and our pictures came out amazing! They look so beautiful! They also had a videography service at our wedding and our video is exactly what we wanted. We are very impressed with all of their services! Thank you Jeff and Amber! We REALLY recommend using their services for anyone looking for great photographers!!! More...
We loved the Janke team! Everyone was so nice and easy to work with. They KNOW their stuff. The photos were beautiful and the video was amazing.
We are so happy with everything.

Jeff and Amber took our engagement photos and will be doing our wedding as well. Before booking our session, they took time to explain in detail what our package entailed. They are fun and incredibly easy to get along with, so they put you at ease. Their vibe makes the whole photo session so much easier. When they're inspired, they tell you and snap away - you can feel the passion and love they have for capturing beautiful photos. As a team, they complement each other well - Amber got on Jeff's shoulders in the middle of the desert to get a shot they wanted. These two pay attention to details - they adjusted hair, told us to reposition, where to look etc. They have a keen ability to direct a session but still get amazing lifestyle shots. Highly recommend and for the other brides, I will provide an update after the wedding is done. More...
Jeff an Amber are absolutely amazing at what they do!!! They were fabulouse to work with, made sure we had fun an had so many great ideas for photos an video shots. I couldn't of asked for better photographers an videographers for my wedding. They are easy to get along with an definitely do there best to make sure everyone is happy. Both photos an video they did for us have been a hit, if you want somthing different an shows off your personality they are the ones to go too!!! There work is priceless an you any help but fall in love with the two! We love the Jankes :) More...
Jeff And Amber, it honestly isn't possible for me to express how much I appreciate and adore your work.
I am so lucky I stumbled on you guys 2 years ago! ! I can truthfully say that having you and your team work on our wedding was one of the best decisions Antonio and I have ever made. Your work is nothing short of exceptional!
Now I will be able to hold on to the memories of my wedding forever and pass them on for my children to see! Watching our Wedding Film brought back all of my emotions and truly captured every single special moment!
To say you are amazing is not enough. I am tearing up as I write this review because you do not know how special your work is and how much I will cherish it.
Your professionalism and creativity are unlike any other and I would recommend you to anyone I ever come across!!
Thank You so much for putting your stamp on my wedding!!
I cannot tell you how many people came up to us during our wedding and said they have never seen a TEAM like yours before.
We love you guys so much.
Again, Thank You for your beautiful work. I am so grateful to have met you and worked with you.

So much fun and comfortable to work with! Absolutely love our photos and video. So many compliments from friends and family.
I initially fell in love with their photography but Jeff and Amber are way more than that... The US Government decided to close the National Parks two days before our Lake Powell houseboat wedding. We were left with no venue and no accommodation and were due to travel in 8 hours. Jeff spent all day researching venues and accommodation for us and came up with probably an even better venue that our first one. He didn't stop there looking into transport, accommodation, dinner reservations, the works... These guys are amazing and without them we would not of had a wedding. Can't say enough good about Jeff and Amber: great people, wonderful to work with and amazing pictures. The pictures are just awesome and will be with us forever. Thanks for all your hard work. K&A... More...
I randomly stumbled along Jeff+Amber's website one day while I was on the great search for a wedding photographer. Within minutes I knew that I was done searching.
From the immediate response to the follow-up skype, I knew without a doubt they would be the photographers we were going to choose.
My wedding day was one of the most amazing days of my life. However, it was also one of the fastest days of my life. From the pre-game jitters to running out to the car, it all flew by so fast. It was almost like I was going to forget it all. Then a few weeks after my wedding I received my photographs from Jeff+Amber. As I scrolled through the pictures, each beautiful and amazing in their own way, my heart was overjoyed! Every moment that flew by will now be forever captured and held close to my heart. That is what Jeff+Amber do, they capture the happiest day of your life for you to cherish forever.
As for Jeff and Amber, I now consider them friends. They are two of the most awesome people I know. I hope to have all my friends and family use them so I can see them for years to come. Thank you for everything Jeff and Amber. More...
The Jankes are so great to work with. Not only are they a blast, but they provide AMAZING shots and great quality! You won't be sorry if you choose them!

For us, the photographer was one of the most important vendors. We wanted to make sure we had the best memories. That being said, we researched a lot and spoke to several people. We ultimately paid a little more then what we had budgeted..... but by far it was our best investment! Not only do we love the pictures, but our friends and family have not stopped talking about how incredible our pictures look.... Not only were the quality of the pictures fantastic, but also their professionalism was everything you could ask for. There's so much to worry about during the wedding planning process, the vendors do not need to be one of them. Jeff and Amber were always quick to get back to us, they were always courteous, and they even went out of their way to help us with other non-photo related questions we had about the wedding. It was such a pleasure working with them, you definitely get more then what you pay for. More...
Amber and Jeff shot our engagement photos last month and I could not be more in love with how they turned out. We are so excited for them to shoot our wedding in March! They are so nice and easygoing and really made us feel comfortable. I love their style and how well they work together. I could not recommend them enough! More...
Jeff and Amber were a pleasure to work with and I will be recommending their services to others.
Jeff and Amber are Rock Stars! They were much fun to work with ......our engagement and wedding photos turned out amazing!
Jeff is the most amazing photographer! He is so willing to do whatever ideas you may have. He also has a way of capturing awesome pics without you knowing it. He is very out going and funny. He has such a great eye and style when it comes to the photos. He did an amazing job with my engagement photos as well as my wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better person to capture my memories! Thank you Jeff!!!! More...
Not only are Jeff and Amber amazing Videographers and Photographers, they are also both awesome people to work with. My new husband and I had them take our engagement photos as well as the video and photos for our wedding. We could not be happier! Neither of us are naturally great in front of a camera but the Jankes quickly had us both laughing and feeling like we were just hanging out with some new friends. My expectation were extremely high and they still managed to exceed them all. I would highly recommend them to capture your memories that you will have for a lifetime! They only negative thing I could say about them is that they have made it tough to decide what photos to choose as there are too many that we love. More...
Jeff and Amber are absolutely amazing at what they do! I wouldn't change who I picked as my photographer over anything! My pictures turned out simply wonderful! Thank you guys so much!
Made our day absolutely amazing!
Amber and Jeff are very talented. I have gotten nothing but positive comments from family and friends. They were very flexible and understanding of my stress level during those bridezilla moments! I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful, and interesting video. The pictures are artistic and fun. Take my advice and check out their work. You will love the results. More...
This dynamic duo will give you everything you want and more out of your wedding photos!! They are truly amazing we received all of our picture lightening fast and the quality of our pictures were not compromised by their speedy delivery either.
To say that we were more than happy with Jeff and Amber would be an understatement, they will provide you with outstanding service and even more outstanding photographs. Take our advise and book these two, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Jeff Janke Photography was great to work with! I am so happy we spent a little extra on our photographer because not only are pictures something you have as a memory after the wedding day is over, but they made taking pictures fun and allowed us to get through them quickly.
Jeff and Amber are very quick to respond to emails, phone calls, and text messages. They are also very flexible, we made a few little changes a few days prior and it was without effort. Jeff, Amber, and their crew are very professional, nice, fun, easy going, take amazing pictures, and have a great eye for pictures that come out even more amazing than you can imagine!
Not only do we love the outcome of our pictures, but our family and friends are very impressed with the pictures are well! I highly recommend them as a photographer! More...
Jeff Jakey Photography were amazing! Their pictures turned out perfect! Turn around was very fast! We will definitely use them in the future and recommend them to friends and family!
They helped my wife and I a great deal in making sure we got pictures we could remember forever! Jeff and Amber were so professional and take brilliant photos. We are very happy they were the ones to photograph our wedding! More...
My husband and I loved working with Jeff and Amber. We first met them in May for our engagement pictures and we were instant friends!
They are a very fun and creative duo and our engagement photos turned out perfect!
We met them again in December for our wedding and all of the pictures turned out great!
Awesome photographers, and honestly great people to work with! More...
Jeff Janke Photography was THE BEST vendor we booked for our wedding. They were incredible. They showed up on time, and with loads of equipment. They were extremely professional and went to work right away capturing all the details. We received the photos back to us within TWO WEEKS of the wedding!! And they were AMAZING! We loved the shots they captured, as did every one of our friends and family that saw them. People continually told us how impressed they were with how hard Jeff and his team worked at our wedding. We had two friends at our wedding that attended as guests but are photographers full time, and even they commented how great of a job they did. If you're looking for a photographer or videographer (because the video they put together for us was even better than the photos!!) BOOK JEFF JANKE PHOTGRAPHY! They will not disappoint! More...
I originally had to talk my husband into seeing the value of hiring a videographer for our wedding. So we researched carefully to make sure that we were going to get the best value for the money spent.
We came across Jeff and Amber and were taken back by the details, emotions and structure of their videos and immediately set up a meeting. After just minutes into the conversation we knew they'd be the right fit for us. Our family and friends are very animated and we wanted to make sure they were able to focus on getting all the different emotions throughout the day, and boy were there many! After getting the video back, we cried and laughed as if we were right back at our wedding day. My husband said that was the best use of our money!
Jeff and Amber are true hard working professionals. They know what's important to create the perfect video for lifelong memories. My husband and I have watched the video numerous times and will be forever grateful of Jeff and Amber. More...
Cole and I got married back in October 2012 and we basically had the best wedding of the year...just ask us! What really pushed it over the edge was having Jeff Janke and his team by our side every second of the day.
We were planning our wedding for the first time, so we had no idea what to look for or where to start. We found Jeff Janke Photography by typing "Los Angeles photographers" into Google and Jeff Janke Photography popped up. I looked through there footage and feel in love. It wasn't until after, I noticed they lived in Lake Havasu City but called them anyway. Jeff mentioned he came to LA often and wouldn't be a problem to do our wedding. I was in shock!! After meeting Jeff and his wife Amber we knew we would have such a great photographer for our special day! They were outgoing, attentive, and out of this world creative from the very beginning!! When the day started he brought a team of 8!! to video and photograph, I wasn't sure if we paid for that but I wasn't about to ask! They were professional, but ready to have a great time and truly brought out the best out in us. After receiving the photographs immediately after the wedding on 4 discs!! I was amazed they were able to get so close all the while having no idea they were right under my feet the whole time. Like photograph ninjas!! We are so blessed that Amber, Jeff, and their team made it to our wedding and had fun with it and made the best footage possible! My advice, invest in the videography! They really took their time and creativity to a whole new level! Something we could never get with anyone else. We are ecstatic with their work and the hard copy memories we now have forever!!
Thank you Jeff, Amber, and the Janke Team!!

Jeff and Amber photographed our wedding on 8 July. They were wonderful to work with! So much fun, and considering my husband and I usually avoid pictures that says a lot! They worked with my budget coming up with a package I could afford that still offered everything I wanted. They were always immediately responsive to all our questions. The pictures turned out AMAZING! They captured all the important moments and all the little details too! It's obvious they love what they do and put their all into their work. I couldn't be happier...Thanks Jeff and Amber! You guys made things easy and fun and we now have the most beautiful pictures to remember our day! More...
I love this company! Jeff and Brandon captured the day of and the day after. My photos are stunning, and we had a blast with them. They will be doing my photos for all events from now on! More...
Jeff, Amber and the entire crew at Jeff Janke Photography are amazing! Each person is extremely creative and motivated to give their clients better photos and video than they could have ever dreamed! The moments they are able to capture are unmatched and timeless. Each member of the team is kind, full of energy and professional. They really made each person involved in our wedding feel comfortable and beautiful. I believe that Jeff Janke Photography's combination of pleasant personalities, professionalism and deep passion for photography is what helped make our video and photos turn out so special! More...
Jeff and Amber are amazing! They had so many great ideas for shots and my pictures turned out even better than I could have imagined!
The Pictures for my wedding were very important to me. I was worried about who I would find, if I found anyone at all. When i saw Jeff Janke's website and saw their video of them in action, I knew that they were completely passionate about what they did and that they would do an amazing job at my wedding. When I met with Jeff and Amber Janke I made my decision within 30 seconds of meeting them. They made me feel welcome and like we had known each other for years. I was comfortable with them from the beginning and that was very important to me as well. I Recommend them to any bride who wants memorable pictures and/or video. Every click of their camera is a unique and beautiful shot that you will definitely cherish forever. If you are looking for a videographer i highly recommend Jeff. His team are so professional and you will honestly NOT be disappointed. Trust me as a fellow bride! More...
Jeff Janke Photography is amazing! They did our engagement photos and we couldn't be happier. We have had sooooo many compliments on our photos.

They have given us memories to look at for a life time. We can't wait for them to do our wedding! More...
