What our clients have to say...

Alison + Vasilis - Belmond El Encanto, Santa Barbara
I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer. I would recommend her a MILLION times over. First off she is extremely talented. When I was searching for my wedding photographer I did not know the first thing about how to select the right one, what questions to ask, or anything, I just knew I wanted my photos to look great. When I came across Jennifer’s work I fell in love with her style so we set-up a meeting. I think I spend an hour on the phone with her! She is so relateable and wanted to know everything so she could make sure she was giving me everything I needed that day.

My fiancé and I first met her in person when we did our engagement photos. She remembered everything I told her about the kind of photos I liked, the moments I hoped to capture, and any insecurities I had. She is for sure a perfectionist, in the best way possible, and will make sure every detail is in place. Not to mention she is so much fun! When our session was over my fiancé said “I don’t want to be done, can we do more this is so much fun!” And then Jennifer replied with “We can keep shooting but the sun is down now.” I would have been happy with just our engagement photos. My fiancé and I literally love every photo.

Then the big day came and there was Jennifer again, being even more amazing! She coordinated everything, from shot lists, to getting children to smile, to making sure I was not standing for too long. She came early, was my rock for reminding me everything was going well and she truly contributed to making my wedding day one of the best days of my life. Here is an example of how amazing she is. I was having the dress moment! I was all in, everyone was surrounding me, photos were being snapped and when my sister went to hook the back, it broke! Before I could even have a freak out moment Jennifer said “This is so wonderful! We have more time for photos!” We did more detail shots, lots of me and the bridesmaids laughing. My dress was fixed in no time and I did not even think about what a disaster it could have been because my wonderful photographer kept me distracted.

After contributing to our wonderful day we got our photos back. I cry every time I look at them, they are absolutely breathtaking. Jennifer has such an eye for detail and since she is truly a wonderful human being with a big heart it is easy for her to capture the moments that mean the most. The ones, since you are in it, you don’t realize are happening. And then you get these moments back in a photo that you would give the world to have. Jennifer is talented, honest, and a great person to have be a part of not only your wedding day but any life event. As I mentioned above I would recommend her a MILLION times over.

Giving Jennifer 5 stars does not do her justice! She was incredible and captured the best day of my life perfectly with pictures we can enjoy forever! She was flexible and very easy to work with. When the big day arrived, she came early and did a fantastic job capturing the before, during and after moments perfectly! She truly created a masterpiece with the shots that she took of our wedding! She was the right style, experience and equipment to capture the moment in a variety of different conditions. She was very thorough and I was so surprised to see the final wedding album that she put together us! There was so much there that I didn’t even realized that she had captured.

We got married a the Chateau and Justin Vineyards, and she was able to capture the time and place in a way that I never would have thought possible. We are so grateful to her for the tremendous job that she did and enjoy looking at our pictures everyday! What we ending up with wasn’t just the typical “wedding pictures” as she was able to truly capture a few magical hours of time in a way that no ordinary photographer could. She made the whole experience feel so natural and and had just the right eye and angle to get some absolutely stunning pictures! You should definitely trust her for your special day as well!

I fell in love with her style of photography before I was even engaged. She more than delivered the photos I was looking for and I’m forever grateful for the gorgeous wedding memories that will last a lifetime. From a former bride - don’t skimp on wedding photography!

Caylor + Matthew - Private Estate, Los Angeles
I was recommended to this photographer by a coworker of mine. I checked out the website and loved her photos. Due to some late scheduling on my part we didn’t have an engagement session and didn’t actually shoot with Jennifer until the actual wedding day. She was fabulous! She made me feel totally comfortable, gave direction but was unobtrusive. She was fun and had great energy. Even our guests were commenting on how she made sure to be in the right place to get all the best shots, but wasn’t in the way. We had an exiting shot I wanted with sparklers that the DJ kind of messed up, but Jennifer was able to coordinate everyone and we got it done quickly while everyone was having fun
