"I cannot say enough good things about jennifer!"

From our first conversation with Jen, we immediately knew we wanted her to be a part of our day. She is incredibly talented at what she does and always makes you feel comfortable. We can't wait to have her photograph the next stages of our lives.

"These photos mean more to me than they did 7 years ago"

It's been 6 years since Jen photographed our wedding, and I still adore them. Classic, timeliness, and so very meaningful. My father recently passed, and I now realize how important & significant these photos are. The picture of my dad and I on my wedding day - I will never not have that in my house. It will be the one my kids see growing up, long after they've lost memory of papa.
