Jen was the photographer at our sister's wedding. We LOVED her work so much that we couldn't imagine having another photographer for ours. Luckily, she was available and willing to travel to Hawaii for us! We appreciated her professionalism, promptness, patience, and availability to answer our questions. Her warm personality made us feel instantaneously comfortable and made the photoshoots easy and fun! She, and her assistant Adrian, went above and beyond by meeting with our wedding coordinator to do a walk-through of the venue shortly after arriving to the island. We love that she cared and that this wasn't just another wedding for her. More importantly, we loved that she sent us sneak peaks after our engagement shoot and the morning AFTER the wedding. After seeing the sneak peaks, we were eager to see the remaining photos. You can see her passion for photography, which is exemplified the details in her work. We would wholeheartedly recommend Jen to anyone, and plan to use her again! She truly is the best. More...

Finding Jen was one of the best things that happened during my wedding-planning process. Finding the photographer was a really hard decision. When my husband found Jen and saw her unique and beautiful style, we both knew she had to be our photographer! After I found her portfolio and her Instagram, I could not stop scrolling through her photos admiring her work.Jen was always prompt in answering my emails and all my questions. It was so nice to have an answer to my questions in such a timely manner.  Jen and her team arrived early to our engagement spot and even helped us find our parking spot, which was super sweet!!Now during our engagement session, Jen was just so amazing. She has such an eye for photography. I was so nervous because I don't know how to pose, but she helped us in posing and made us feel so comfortable.  Of course.... the photos were AMAZING!!  At the wedding, Jen and her team were again so wonderful. The highlight photos from the wedding were sent to us the following morning after the wedding, which was so nice to have so fast so that we can re-live the wedding.  After the wedding ended, and we said our goodbyes to Jen and her team, I was a little sad to say bye- because each of them are such fun, so nice, so cute and so down to earth.Hiring Jen was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!!!!! Highly highly highly recommend her!!!!!! More...

We came across Jenn's portfolio pretty late in the game for our wedding; but when I saw her vision, style and personal taste, I knew I only wanted her to shoot our days.  I'd like to think that it was meant to be because we were unfortunately scammed by another photographer 2.5 weeks prior to our wedding, which left me in a manic panic.  I reached out to Jenn for a quote which she replied within a few hours, and thankfully was available on both days for our ceremony/reception.  We actually received a handful of quotes from photographers that day, but I just had a feeling about Jennifer's response and portfolio.  I am the most awkward at taking photos, but she was super reassuring and positive, and just so personable and nice; it immediately put me at ease.  Especially during solo shots where I was like "ehhh where do I look, how do I pose, I'm so awkward lol"; she was great!  Her work ethic, artistic eye, style, and overall bubbly-ness and personality was an absolute pleasure to be around.  She was so flexible and good natured, even when my coordinator/friend got a little tipsy and started talking about very un PC things ;O During the reception, Jenn and Adrian were so thoughtful in scouting areas with the best lighting, cool backgrounds to take shots, and so patient with all the family that were pulling them in so many different directions.  I almost cried out of happiness when Jenn showed me just on her camera, how she used my wedding heels, invite, rings to take the most beautiful wedding accents photo.  I could not imagine a better looking shot so beautifully laid out.  I cannot wait to get the photos back so we can order our thank you cards!

We're so incredibly thankful we chose Jen Fujikawa as our wedding photographer! Wedding photos last forever, so picking a photographer was the most important vendor choice to us. Jen's an incredibly kind and thoughtful person who happens to be insanely talented and professional. It shines through in her composition, her use of natural light (something we valued in particular) and her editing. My wife also really wanted a photographer who took both digital and film photos--film captures a very romantic look, and we wanted a photographer who could provide gorgeous photos using both mediums, with lots of natural light. Within hours of our wedding, Jen sent over a large set of sneak preview photos showcasing highlights of the event. We were thrilled to receive them so quickly; many of our married friends did not receive sneak previews from their photographers as we did. The full set of photos just came in a couple days ago, and after seeing them, we're so grateful we went with Jen. She really captured all the little details as well as all the important moments (both posed, as in group formal photos, and random organic moments during the night). Jen gives you (and your wedding party) thoughtful direction so that you look your best (even when you're not naturally at ease in front of a camera!). We've shared the photos widely with our family and friends by now, and everyone has praised them as some of the best photos they've seen.It was easy to work with Jen to customize her packages to fit our needs and she was understanding with our packed schedule for the night.  Jen, her second shooter Diana and her assistant were so helpful and flexible with us throughout the wedding day and we cannot thank them enough for the wonderful photos and memories we have. We can't recommend Jen enough as a wedding photographer! More...

We hired Jen and Adrian for our destination wedding in Honolulu and could not have been more pleased. I'm sharing a bunch of her photos so that you can see for yourself. Our wedding was only 10 days ago, but the night of the wedding after her services ended, she immediately sent us a bunch of sneak peeks that we are already in love with. She also did our engagement photos in LA. She does an awesome job at utilizing the background/space and natural lighting. She uses ALL natural lighting. Perhaps the best thing about them both though is how nice and easy-going they are. When picking a photographer for your wedding day, I cannot stress how important it is that they are someone you get along with. From the initial consultation, I could tell that she was very chill but also very knowledgable, professional, and experienced. To be honest we were a little hesitant because she had never been to our venue, but that wasn't a problem at all. She is so talented and even arrived in the islands early to scope the location out. She was very patient and listened to our concerns, stuck to our JAM-PACKED timeline the day of, was very punctual, in fact, arrived EARLY to begin the long day. Jen and Adrian went above and beyond their duties as our wedding photographers and I would highly recommend them to anyone on that [exhausting] search to find the perfect photographer. Thanks Jen & Adrian! More...

I came across Jennifer while searching online for LA photographers. I probably went through 40 sites before I found hers and immediately fell in love with her pictures. Not only are her pictures beautiful though, her album designs are really special. You can tell she puts a lot of time and effort into each wedding album down to the material she chooses for the cover. I could not be happier to have chosen her to capture my wedding. Her and her team were really great and I appreciated their calm presence throughout the entire day of the wedding. It really felt like they were part of my bridal party lol. They made sure my train was not dragging in dirt, fixed my hair when it was out of place and even bustled my dress for me. We just received our pictures and could not be happier with how they turned out. We already received so many compliments. I can't wait to see how the album turns out! More...

Jennifer and her team are incredible! We found her work while checking out some photos in the Calamigos catalogue. I flipped to the end credits and saw that the mystery photographer I was admiring was Jennifer Fujikawa. As a person, she's a joy to be around and was my guiding light the day of the wedding. Seriously, I was clueless about when to get dressed, where to walk, what to do, and Jennifer helped me through much of the day leading up to the ceremony, all while taking gorgeous photos. As a photographer, she's got a magnificent eye for natural lighting, capturing candid moments of joy, scoping out scenic photo-ops. Also, she's like a magical wizard: my husband and I barely saw her & her team during the ceremony and reception, only to realize afterwards, she had been *everywhere*. She presented us with a beautiful multitude of photos from the night. We kept thinking, "how did she take that photo? I didn't even notice her?!" and yet she somehow got the perfect snap! It's like she wears an invisibility cloak while she's on the job! It really blew our minds. We couldn't be happier with our choice to hire Jennifer Fujikawa for our wedding! Thank you!! More...

Overall we are happy with the quality of our photos. Jen does a great job with editing and ensuring that the final product that's delivered is something to take you back to your special day. Finding the right photographer can be challenging, and it is good to note that you want to make sure that not only do you understand the portfolio you are choosing from, but that you also take the time to make sure the photographer takes the time to get to know you, your likes, and your dislikes. Remember that you don't get a re-do for your big day, so it's not a bad thing to really work out the details of your big day with your photographer ahead of time!For any future clients who might already have a vision of what they already want (and also like to ask a lot of questions!) don't be afraid to thoroughly communicate your needs and wants with Jen. We didn't totally feel like our needs were understood despite sending a couple of detailed e-mails, but please note that this could have been a miscommunication issue on both ends, so we are not putting any blame on anyone.There is sometimes too much to think about when planning for a wedding, and we do think it could have been more helpful if Jen had followed up with us more prior to our wedding, but this is also an even bigger lesson and reminder to future clients to make sure they stay on top of communication with ALL their vendors! We are happy in looking back on our big day, and thank Jen for the beautiful work she put in to giving us these memories to hold on to. More...

Jen was one of the first couple wedding vendors we booked because we were pretty confident we wanted her to be our photographer.  After our initial meeting, we were able to make our decision rather quickly.  Her work speaks for itself!  Throughout the whole wedding process, Jen has not disappointed!  She is extremely easy to work with and very professional.  During our engagement shoot and on our wedding day, she (& her Dad, who was our second shooter) did a great job of helping us to feel less nervous and awkward.  She's also been so great about making sure we received all of our proofs and pictures in a timely manner.  She really went above and beyond for us and we could not be more appreciative!!!  We were so happy with how all of our engagement and wedding photos have turned out and can't wait to see our album!  I would recommend Jen, without hesitation, to friends and family!

During the wedding planning process, Jen never took more than a few hours to answer my emails, which is something seriously amazing and very appreciated considering how busy she is. On the day of, she arrived at least 15 minutes before her scheduled time, directed all of our shots with complete ease, and even helped direct our videographers, who weren't as seasoned.

One of our favorite vendor  :)   When they say your favorite vendors can make or break your day, I totally believe it.   Jenn and her team totally made my day.  I loved them so so so much!  We had a few things happen that were not ideal from not getting the correct wedding flowers to having issues with a donut wall to developing a rash but when i saw Jenn in the morning she immediately gave me a hug and for some reason i just felt so comforted and forgot about everything that had already went wrong.      We met Jenn very early on in our wedding planning.   We interviewed about 3 photographer.   For some reason, when we met with her and my fiance looked at her book, he totally fell in love with his work.  His eye is actually more keen in terms of photography than mine is, but I was a sucker for her personality, her organization, and her love of succulents also.    What do you have to say, I am a sucker for people, If i liked the person i often knew i could work with them.   Jenn price ranges from the moderate range in terms of photographer but she's definitely worth every penny.  She had told us she doesn't accept every couple, so I am so glad that she accepted us.  Our engagement shoot was scheduled in December.   Jenn had emailed us a directory of sample photos and location ranging from all over southern california and we seriously couldn't stop looking at all her work which was amazing and the library of work she had.  She knew the perfect spots to accomplished our photos.   Our engagement shoot went smoothly at Malibu State Creek.   Afterwards, Jenn even executed some shots of us playing ball by a nearby park where she had found.    We loved all the elements of the shoot, she was even so sweet and brought us a little cart to put everything in in order to make the transport of materials from our car to site smooth.  We lovedddd how these photos turned out and blew a lot of them up from our house.   On the wedding day you can only imagine chaos is occurring, but Jenn was so sweet she gave me a hug, ran to set up her camera, and then started shooting us.  Our families wanted a lot of pictures, her and her second shooter were able to accomodate everything.     She even was able to just go with the plans, when my family wanted some more pictures and my guest wanted some additional pictures during cocktail hours.  Her and her second shooter Diana were amazing.   Diana, Jenn, and Adrian were even so cute they decided to have some playing with our leftover sparklers to see if we could do some unique photos with the sparkler exit.   She even gifted us some sneak peak photos really soon after the wedding which totally made our day since we are both such pictures people and weren't able to take any photos during the wedding day.  Hmph, there not enough nice things i could say about Jenn and her team, but we are so lucky to have met such amazing and talented photographers.    THANK YOU SO MUCH JENN and her team for making our day so special and capturing the details and intimate moments.

Jen is just the best photographer, and a true professional!! I found her after I came across pictures that she took for another wedding at my wedding venue, and booked her immediately after she told us that she was available for our date. From the start, Jen made us feel so at ease by how well she knew everything related to the wedding and engagement photography process. She even knew that taking engagement shots at a certain beach would not turn out well at that time of the year! We felt very confident in her recommendations and skills as a photographer, and that confidence was definitely not misplaced! Jen was very receptive and flexible with certain requests we made regarding contractual terms and agreement that we made, which made my husband very happy! Communication was also very prompt and timely from the time of booking her services to receiving our pictures, which we really appreciated (I have known of other couples who received their pictures weeks after their promised date from other photographers)!! Our wedding day went very smoothly, with Jen knowing exactly what to take without being intrusive at all. Her calm and steady demeanor also really facilitated the flow of the day. She and her second shooter worked tirelessly and efficiently, and helped us keep to our schedule so nothing was missed. She was very patient with our different requests, and also as we were caught up with chatting with guests during our table shots. She got all the shots that you could possibly want of the wedding day!Jen did not disappoint! She produced a slew of AMAZING pictures that is just such a wonderful record of our special day. Her pictures are just so beautiful, and we are so happy with how they all turned out! Her services are of great value considering the quality of her work, and the ease of working with her. We couldn't have made a better decision using Jen as our photographer, and are so glad we did! We love you, Jen! :) More...

Our wedding was earlier this month, and I can say we could not be happier with what we got from Jennifer Fujikawa Photography. We met with Jen early on in our planning process because we liked what we saw online and decided to meet with her.  She was so easy to talk to and she understood what we were looking for in a photographer. She also brought along several of the wedding books she gives the bride and groom and they were gorgeous.  We signed the contract with her shortly after.We used Jen as both our engagement session photographer as well. While we had a few rough ideas of where we wanted to go during the session and what types of pictures we wanted, we let her run the show. She found spots, helped us pose ourselves and took lots of pictures.  It was pretty crowded that day but she did such a good job just isolating the two of us. When she sent us the pictures, my husband and I were blown away with the results of the shoot. We had never looked so pretty! On our wedding day Jen and her assistants were so wonderful and we could not have asked for a better experience. She did a great job blending what she thought would be great shots and getting some input from us on what we wanted. They were constantly working and felt so nice that they were doing everything they could to capture every little moment from our day.Jen was a dream to work with.

Jen was an absolute delight to work with. It's rare to find such a fantastic combination of passion and talent, along with a personable and positive attitude. We booked her for an engagement session and the wedding day, and unfortunately she was not able to make it to our wedding but was able to retouch all of our photos. Working with her for the engagement session definitely helped us to "warm up" to getting our photos taken, and she made it extremely comfortable for us, giving us very specific direction when needed but also allowing us to be ourselves. For our wedding, she made sure to organize one of her associates to take the lead, and to select one who had shot at our venue prior so the transition is smooth. Diana stepped up like a champ, with the help of Jen's father who was a master second shooter (and a huge hit with our guests, especially on the dance floor--he will really get in there and get those amazing shots!). The day went without a hitch, and the photos we got back were still beautifully "Jen-ified," with her fantastic eye and what I could only imagine as a magic wand.Although my having the associate was a happy accident of sorts, I would recommend it as an option for couples. An endorsement from Jen is a fine accolade and street cred for any photographer in my mind, and you can book with confidence that your day will be captured and brought to life in magical light.

Jen is not only great at what she does and a true professional, she is also such a pleasant and positive person to be around.  My wife and I recently worked with Jen for our engagement shoot in Malibu and had the pleasure of working with both she and her father on our wedding day in Pasadena in July.  Jen is extremely prepared, has shot in many beautiful locations all over Los Angeles, and knows exactly how to create those engagement/wedding shots that will last a lifetime.  We appreciated how patient Jen was with us and during our first attempt at our engagement shoot, the weather did not cooperate.  Instead of taking the chance of shooting on a day that may not have turned out that well, she gratefully and willingly offered to reschedule to ensure we shot on a much more favorable day.  That day/evening of engagement photos was such a fun experience.  Both my wife and I were a little nervous leaving the house that day, but Jen did such a great job of breaking us out of our shells and making us feel comfortable in front of the camera.  The photos speak for themselves!Our wedding day photos she and her father captured were an extension of the quality work she did with our engagement photos.  She and her father captured our whirlwind of a day in such beautiful detail and had us laughing and smiling as they did it.  We have sat down with our photos on numerous occasions with various friends and family after our wedding and it never gets old.  Thank you so, so much Jen.  You are the absolute best!

Jen is the absolute best photographer you'll have the opportunity of working with! She has been featured on a ton of wedding blog sites and I had been following Jen's work for some time now so when it came time to choose a photographer for my own wedding, it was such an easy choice. After contacting Jen, she set up a date for my husband and me to meet with her. She was professional from the start and brought along a lot of album and print samples. We looked through packages and booked her right away.I actually hate taking photos but when it came time for our engagement shoot, Jen made both me and my husband feel so comfortable and relaxed- we both had such a great time shooting with her. Jen and her team were also fantastic on the day of our wedding. They were punctual, professional, patient, kind, and gave great advice on different ways to pose to get a lot of different angles. My husband and I were blown away by the images when we got them back! Jen and her team did such a wonderful job in capturing our day so beautifully and I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Weddings can be crazy stressful with a million details to look after but it was so nice to know that I could place all my trust in Jen and her team to capture all the right details. We had the best day that was photographed and detailed by the best people!! Thanks Jen! More...

Jen recently photographed our wedding in Santa Monica back in April. She has a keen eye, is very professional but very approachable making sure you are comfortable. Her nimble ability to work around any situation and still capture a fleeting moment is remarkable. I would highly recommend her for your wedding or engagement photos. Everything feels natural and elegant and we love how she captured our big day. More...

We booked Jen for our engagement and wedding day photography. She has so much talent and a great eye for capturing beautiful moments. We couldn't be happier with her work. She exceeded our expectations! She's such a fun person to work with. She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and fun as well. On our wedding day, she was running around capturing all the important moments of the day and all through the night. She works very hard and you can see that photography is her passion. We will definitely be booking her again, maternity and future family photoshoots. Thank you Jen for your beautiful work! Keep doing what you love, we see it through your amazing photos! More...

Jen is truly the best photographer you will find, ever! Seriously, no need to continue your search! In my case she was the one & only photographer we considered for our wedding this past October 2015. Jen, her father, and her assistant Diana are all a dream to work with! Jen is so patient, kind, and beyond professional. She will ease any and all concerns you may have - which you will, especially while planning your wedding! I am so thankful Jen was available to work with us, she has given us the same warm & compassionate time and attention all throughout the pre-planning (including engagement photos), during our wedding festivities (rehearsal and wedding day), and even after months since our nuptials (working on our wedding album). Thank you again Jen, I can't wait to work with you in the future for all of our photography needs! xo More...

I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to do our photography for our outdoor wedding. Jen is constant professional and was able to capture a whirlwind of a day, especially with a group involving small children who weren't into photos. You can tell Jen loves what she does.Her prices are extremely fair compared to other photographers in the same skill-bracket (which is high). You're honestly getting a steal with the prices she charges. I didn't give her any "need" photos, I let her do her thing with what she thought the environment had to offer, and we received beautiful photos we can't wait to share with family and future generations. Thank you Jen!! More...

Jen is amazing on so many levels. I planned my LA wedding remotely from Chicago. Jen was great about doing all of our planning over the phone. I also changed the timing and added hours to our service week of the wedding and Jen had no problem accommodating us! It was nearly 100 degrees on our wedding day but Jen and her dad worked so hard to get us some amazing pictures! Our ceremony, picture location, and reception were each in different places, but Jen had no problem with this. She did a great job of capturing photos at each location, and looking back on those photos really allows me to re-live my special day! I cant say enough how great Jen was and I highly recommend her!

If you are looking for a talented engagement/wedding photographer who will make you feel at ease (during your shoot and throughout the planning process) -- DEFINITELY consider Jennifer Fujikawa. Style:Her photography style is very artistic and romantic, which is exactly what we were hoping for. She also does a great job catching the natural light at its best moments. She also has a strong eye for setting up great shots. During our engagement shoot, we were not familiar with the outdoor location that we chose (think trails/beach) and wasn't sure where we would end up on the trail we chose. Jen did an amazing job navigating despite this fact, and worked quickly so we didn't lose the sunlight. She also got an artistic shot of us standing next to this huge tree, which we loved. :) She has a lot of experience with styled wedding shoots (LOVE THOSE PHOTOS), but she also is stellar at catching the candid, intimate moments! Communication:Our wedding was in San Diego, while we live in the Bay Area so we had to do a lot of long distance planning. Jen was very prompt with all communication and very flexible when we needed to schedule phone conversations. She made it very easy to plan both our engagement photo shoot and wedding day from afar, which helped immensely. She even reached out for our other vendor contact information, so that she could coordinate timing and get the shots that she needed. Overall: Jen's photography packages are comprehensive (with various options!) and we found the perfect package that worked for us and our budget. We opted to have the wedding photo book as well, which we are very excited about. They look amazing with great quality -- and it was one item that many of my married friends wish that they had included in their photography package, so we are glad we chose to get it. We love our photographs and thank Jen so much for making the photography process go so smoothly and stress-free! More...

She is the SWEETEST! I found Jen Fujikawa on a wedding blog, either Green Wedding Shoes or The Knot. I emailed her and several other photographers. Her response was the only one that stood out to me. She was very quick to respond (I'm pretty sure she emailed back the same day). She sounded excited and eager to learn more about my wedding photography needs whereas other vendors emailed back auto-responses or were very short and rude. Aside from the photos I saw on her blog, her quick response time, cheerfulness, and ability to answer questions thoughtfully were what won me over. You can tell she genuinely wants to make you happy and that she loves what she does. She sent all the pictures to us within 2-4 weeks, it was lightning quick!I told her what I was looking for and what my  budget was and she was very accommodating. We didn't need a photo album so that helped to cut cost, we just wanted someone to shoot pictures on the day of and give us all the raw photos. Whatever your needs, she will work hard to accommodate you to the best of her ability. Although! Her photo books are GORGEOUS and if we had the money, we would have purchased one. I would say you should spring for the books. They are carefully crafted and you can tell she puts her heart into it. For our engagement shoot, a bee flew into her hair. When we tried to get it out of her hair, it flew into my cardigan and stung me! She handled everything calmly and was able to get us back on track despite the incident. I loveddd the overall feel she created with the look of our engagement shoot. It was a very ethereal, whimsical feel. I love the way she used the natural light and greenery around us to create a beautiful backdrop. She provided us with a book of great locations to shoot at, but due to poor planning on our part, we ended up going to a local trail I used to run. This trail is usually nothing but dirt and trees with very little green. By some miracle, the whole trail was lush when we happened to do our e-shoot. What is adorable is that she brings her little Polaroid camera and take a few film photos. She let us have one she took and we treasure it to this day.On the day of, she and a second shooter were there. I read in reviews that her dad is often the second shooter and I was hoping he would be ours, but she had another girl there. Darn! I didn't get to interact much with her, so I can't really comment on her second shooter. The pictures came out with a nice feel that matched our venue and look. We had an all-white wedding with greenery here and there and she was able to tie in the venue and details to make our pictures so beautiful! We ran out of time to make use of the entire venue and I wish we had snapped pictures at certain spots (inside the Heritage Museum house, in a vintage cabana we rented) so make sure you allocate time for photos! She also took lovely candid photos, detail shots, and artsy angle shots that we loved. My only regret is that I didn't have a list of must-have shots to take, I mistakenly assumed that she could read my mind. Make sure you are clear about what you want. I'm still kicking myself not getting a lot of shots I wanted.I highly recommend her. Not only is she talented, but she is so sweet and easy to work with! More...

There aren't enough words to express how AMAZING Jen is! She is so incredibly talented and a joy to have around. She captured our wedding so perfectly! Throughout the day, I felt like we were having our friend or family member photograph us. The pictures turned out better than I could even imagine! I recommend her whole heartedly to anyone! All the pics are so magical and priceless. Loved her! More...

Jennifer is an absolutely amazing photographer!!!! I scoured the internet to find the perfect photographer for some post wedding pictures to give to family who live on the other side of the world. I came across Jennifer's photography website via Yelp and I was so impressed with her picture taking abilities. I honestly thought "She's amazing so she will probably be too expensive for me to book" but I gave it a whirl and contacted her to find out her pricing. I'm soooooo glad I did as she was very affordable and responded to all inquiries the same day!!! I was so confident that she would take great pictures and the process of booking and planning the photoshoot was so easy.Upon meeting Jennifer,she is so sweet and personable. She was very friendly and knew exactly what would make the perfect setting for a photo. My Husband and I felt so at ease/relaxed throughout the photoshoot and usually he hates pictures being taken but he really enjoyed this shoot. Jennifer sent us the pictures in a week and offered to retouch 10 of them if we chose to have any altered, but we were so impressed by them that we didn't feel we needed any of them retouched. They were sooooooo beautiful!!!!!! We loved how the pictures came out and the pictures we have shared with family and friends so far were really impressed by them.:) Overall we couldn't have been anymore happy with the quality of Jennifer's photography service. We hope to have her take more pictures in the near future. Thank you so much Jennifer,you are FANTASTIC!!!! :) More...

Jen's photographs from our recent wedding in southern california are simply magical.  It has been a little over two months since our wedding, and I still look at the pictures daily :) . .. she made a day (which admittedly was a bit frazzled and rushed at points) look so amazingly beautiful and captured so many of the little moments that we weren't able to see or experience for ourselves that day but have been able to relive and share over and over again since. My friends and relatives all are so amazed by the quality and beauty of her images as well -- the most frequent comment I get is "you look like you are in a magazine"!Jen and her second shooter were a great team on the wedding day, blending seamlessly into the background of the celebration, but stepping in at just the right moments to direct the family portraits and capture the especially perfect shot (and being the only one who was able to get our floral crowns to actually sit "just right"!).I'm so thankful for the quality of service and photographs she delivered and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. (**and I'm hoping she'll soon be expanding to do family shoots too! I would love to have her capture images throughout our family's "timeline"!) More...
