For a day with so many wonderful memories, it speaks volumes that Jen was one of the absolute highlights of our wedding. We were excited to work with her because her pictures seem like fine art photography first, and event photography second. We didn’t want a clinical documentary of our wedding; we wanted images that were creative/adventurous in the way they captured the little, beautiful moments of the day. Her photographs perfectly did that. Many of the staged portraits wound up looking like candids, she was receptive to our (maybe crazy) ideas, and some of her edits even reflected our personal styles of photography. Jen’s photos are a brilliant memory of not just the events of that day, but also capture the feelings and moments behind them. Additionally, Jen’s temperament and personality were an unexpected blessing. Look, weddings are wonderful, but they’re also stressful and awkward. But Jen knows how to work with those emotions, and she was a calming influence on us the whole time. She is unintrusive, but helpfully instructive. She can laugh, and she can cry. She can quietly take pictures of the two of you in silence without it feeling weird, and she can shout loud enough to wrangle all of your unruly family together for a group photo. At no point did Jen feel like an accessory to our wedding — she was part of the team, involved and invested in making the wonder of that day happen. We were so happy to share our day with her, and I think that element can sometimes be lost in the calculus of planning a wedding. Jen is simply the helpful, pleasant, and reassuring sort of person that you want to surround yourself with during the craziness of your wedding. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
