Jenna and her Associate Photograper were amazing! We have an Autistic/Down syndrome son who is hard to photograph and Jenna got him to look at the camera long enough to snap his photo every time. That in itself is a rare feit.
She also did not take one picture I really did not like. I will recommend Jenna to any and all people who could use her services!!
Jenna was a pleasure to work with, and I would (and have) recommend her to anyone seeking professional photography services.
I found Jenna through a bridal expo in Honolulu. Her photography style stood out to me, as I was looking for something very particular. We booked Jenna over a year in advance and she was so generous in allowing us to set up a payment plan. This granted us the opportunity to choose the photography package we really wanted, while not breaking the bank. Jenna's packages include an engagement session which helps you get to know her, lets her get to know you, and makes for a smooth sail on the wedding day. She's so natural at what she does, which makes you feel more relaxed, too. I loved how Jenna took charge on the wedding day, but also remained polite and friendly. The turn around time for getting your photos back is wicked fast! She's very proficient in returning emails in a timely manner, and she goes above and beyond to make her brides feel special. I cannot put into words how pleased we are with our wedding photos. She truly captured the emotion and story of the entire day. I'm so grateful for her, and her work.
Jenna was fantastic to work with! My wedding was in all honesty a little unorganized and Jenna came in not only wearing her photographer hat but also many others! I was so glad to have her around. She was the only vendor that I knew I could depend on, for those of you who have planned or are planning a wedding you know how good that feeling is. We also loved her work!
As a little note Jenna is also very in tune with her clients. Shortly before our engagement session which involved our 2 pups one of them suddenly passed away. Jenna showed so much compassion and offered to take a few photos of her as a memorial before she had passed. The next day after the photos were taken she passed away. Both my husband and I are both so grateful that she was able to catch her last moments with us.
All in all, we were very glad we chose Jenna!
When we started planning our wedding, my wife and me knew that photography was a major thing that we wanted to do right. My wife found Jenna and from the first meeting we had with her we were very at ease with her. She is very outgoing and up front with all aspects of her buisness.
We had our engagement shoot with her before I left for a sixth month deployment and she made us very comfortable in front of the camera. She is very good with working with people and very experienced at making people feel at ease. She even maintained contact with me and my wife through my deployment to ensure that all aspects were covered. There was less than a month left to plan things after I got back, so she was very helpful in doing that over email. She is accomodating to those other ciurcumstances that may make that difficult.
When the day of our wedding came around she was able to capture both my wife and my getting ready, and she was on-site in both locations to capture the key moments of each. At first, I was reluctant to do a first-look session with her as it is a departure from tradition, however, again she made me feel at ease, and I am very glad she did as they turned out beautiful and are a wonderful addition to our memories. She even put her own equipment at risk to capture the perfect shot (Rain and flashes don't mix, but they are awesome pictures!!!). I love Jenna so much and we will definitely use her again. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to friends and family for their photograph needs.
When we started planning our wedding I knew photography was #1 on my list of priorities. I wanted beautiful photographs to remember our day. That is exactly what we received with Jenna as our photographer. First, she shot our engagement photos before my fiance left on deployment. She made my fiance comfortable and was willing to find gorgeous shooting locations for us. My second session with her was for boudoir photos. I wanted to give my fiance a gift. The session was so much fun. It was never uncomfortable and the result was amazing! Finally, Jenna shot our wedding. She captured everything: the excitement of the wedding, the emotion of our vows, the shenanigans of the groomsmen, the innocence of the flower girls, the fun of the reception. Everything. Everyone loved the photos they were captured in. I can relive the day again and again in our beautiful photographs. I will book her again. We'll be using Jenna again for family photographs, maternity photos, and more!
i have to first off start with how much I love Jenna. I'm actually a pretty laid back bride and she lets me know when things need to be done but is not pushy in any way. I met Jenna through friends and then got to see her work. She does a fantastic job and is sooo professional. I know Jenna as a friend as well and she always tells you when she is switching hats from friend to photographer. She is always willing to give you her honest opinion.
I think Jenna gives amazing rates. She is flying from Hawaii ( where we both live) to upstate New York ( where the wedding is) plus doing an engagement shoot and a complete wedding day for less than what we were quoted by a few people in the town we are getting married in.
If you want a great photographer with an awesome personality...it's Jenna all the way.
Words cannot begin to express how grateful we were to find Jenna. I called her on the phone and felt an instant connection. She explains everything and even helped us hook up with others on the island to make our wedding a huge success!! She met us on the beach prior to our wedding to take an engagement shoot so we could have an in person meet and greet before the big day!! Never in my wildest dream would I have expected to receive my photos and LOVE each and every one of them!! She was able to capture the story in full detail for me to relive those moments like the just happened all over again!!! She will literally climb mountains to ensure she get the best shot!! Jenna is full of life, entertaining, and extremely spunky!!! I love that about her even though we live very far apart I feel we can now call her a friend!!!!
Jenna is extremely artistic with her photography. She truly understands how to use her surroundings to elevate the emotions in her photos. I appreciated her honesty and opinions. I would love to use her again for some family photos now that the wedding is over. Something that I really enjoyed was how easy she was during the booking process. Highly recommend emailing her if you are looking to do some unique styled photography for your wedding. .
Choosing the right photographer is one of the most important decisions you will need to make for your wedding day. Boy, did we luck out with Jenna! Not only was she super attentive to our needs and wishes, her experience proved most invaluable in deciding on the shots we would want (be sure to listen to her!). And, of course, her talent, eye and personality helped us to capture some of the most important moments of this day. She took pictures of the littlest details that now, when I look at, stirs up emotions from that day. She laid our cufflinks side-by-side and the image is breathtaking. Jenna, thank you for your magic! ---From Eric
While I was eager for my wedding day to come, I was not as eager for the exhausting search that it takes to find a good photographer. We are a gay couple which can't help but to be a factor in who you choose. Same-sex marriage had only been passed a few weeks before our wedding day, so the idea was fresh to a lot of people and was probably untested to a lot of photographers. Well, when we found Jenna, she shared in our excitement for the wedding and made us feel as special as I'm sure any other couple would like to feel on their special day. No matter what the quality of pictures that my husband Eric described above (and trust me, they are A+ quality!), what was really important to me was that we could find someone who treated us with respect and yes - love. And, for that, Jenna - I will be forever grateful! ---From Chad
If you've ever encountered a trustworthy sales person, you know that they do more than just sell you a product or service. They take time to understand what you're needs are, where and when the service they provide will suit you best and how their product or service will fit into your life.
Creatrix Photography by Jenna provides nothing short of AMAZING photographs but also the great services for a (hopefully) once in a lifetime event.
My wife and I live in Japan and had to remotely choose who we wanted as our photographer. We went online for a quest to search for the right person. Out of dozens of photographer's websites we looked at, everyone posts their best photographs on their website, make our venture to choose the right photographer difficult at first. But when we got to the Creatrix website, the inquiry form was what really sold us. The creativity put into the "contact us" was about a form that allowed us to tell her why we thought she was great, and the ability to tell her about us, all in a letter format to Jenna. The initiation process was already a letter to a friend.
From there, her correspondence was great. Granted, my replies to emails were slow, but nonetheless she was always quick in getting back to us, and if she couldn't get back to us, we would get an answer as to what was to come.
Her photography services combine the benefits of organized steps to get us prepared for the wedding, where and what she needs throughout the day and how she will deliver results, with the full creativity of a world-class photographer. She has a portal set up to make sure we know what we will get and to make sure we know what we need to provide so she can prepare for our day. The completed photograph package are made available online which is also available through an app which makes life easy for us when we're viewing.
Throughout our wedding, she was proactive about getting our shots, and talked us through how we should pose and when we should be posing or just acting natural. The photographs are AWESOME! Classy, colourful and she is able to capture the moments perfectly. For our portrait shots, she set us up to create the moment we wanted her to capture. Her angles, her lighting and her charisma really helped to bring out the best in us.
Right from start to the end delivery, she was perfect. We didn't have the chance to meet Jenna before we got to Hawaii, but after reading the reviews and even more so after experiencing the wedding day, and then after getting our photographs, we were happy that Jenna was part of our wedding experience.
She helped make our wedding and she helped to leave every moment of our wedding for the rest of our lives.
Oops... I forgot to mention. She is way cool and such an awesome person to hang out with. She's funny, witty and makes us laugh. Need I say more?
Jenna took our wedding pictures at the beach, and all I can say is WOW!!!! All my friends were impressed and said they were the best wedding pictures they have seen. Jenna was very creative in all of them and was able to beautifully capture the moment. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
But most importantly, Jenna was a wonderful person to work with. She was always very friendly and helpful. She recommended the perfect spot for the pictures as well as other people that could help us out.
I HIGHLY recommend working with Jenna and we'll always be very grateful towards her.
Special thanks to our greasy, pushy, fun loving photographer!! She is exactly what you need for a photographer… capable, hardworking, fun and direct (especially important with Indian families). Above all, Jenna is a gifted visionary. These beautiful images don’t make themselves, she is behind every click.
Jenna was great! She was easy to get ahold of and worked hard at getting all the shots I wanted. She even stayed an extra 30minutes because our Lion Dancers were late. I was very happy with the pictures she took and I can't wait for the photo book, that was included in our package.
I chose Creatrix Photography because Jenna's (owner) work stood out from everyone else's at the expo. I would visit her website several times before the now husband and I sat with her to talk about packages and booking her for our big day. I would say she is an expert when it comes to natural lightening and really knows how to use her equipment. Several other great things about Jenna are that she is fun, friendly and very personable. She really wants to get to know her clients and keeps in contact with you throughout your engagement to ensure that she provides the best service possible for your big day.
Jenna is a rare talent. She's able to capture the feeling of any moment. I am so blessed to have found her and that she's been able to capture a lot of the most wonderful moments in my life.
Jenna's true gift is her ability to be authentic and real, she immediately makes you feel comfortable. You don't even realize she's there. She's like a ninja photographer! When I look back on my photos I'm able to relive every moment!
Jenna's follow up and attention to detail made me feel comfortable and confident through every step of the process!
Mahalo Jenna, keep up the amazing work! You are a true creative! The world is better because of you! Go Girl!
Jenna did excellent work for both our engagement and wedding photos. She was very professional and dedicated throughout the entire process, and always replied in a timely manner to questions. For our engagement photos, we were pretty nervous, so it was her vision and enthusiasm that kept everything moving along and ensured a great final product. Jenna is a ton of fun, but when it comes to her work she is quite focused. This was incredibly important on the wedding day with so many people to direct and things going on. She managed the process and the people beautifully, and in a nice way. Finally, Jenna gets your wedding photos edited very promptly following the event - many of our friends couldn't believe how quickly they were done as they had waited over a month for theirs. Basically, if you want beautiful, creative photos (we received many compliments) and a true professional who cares about your experience, we highly recommend Jenna!
My partner & I had Jenna fly on over to Kauai while we were there on vacation this past summer and really wanted to capture some engagement photos in our favorite place. Since we are photographers ourselves so we are picky. We chose Jenna because of her romantic, earthy, and intimate portraits she captures. She is like like no other. Her photography skills are the bomb.com. Her personality puts you at ease, and her candid nature creates images that are unlike anything you've seen. We highly recommend her for capturing your own wedding...do it, do it now!
Looking for a photographer in Honolulu was a huge task, especially planning the wedding from Los Angeles. Once I found Jenna's site online and saw her work, I knew she was "the one." Jenna is amazing! Her energetic personality is what drew me to her right off the bat. Leading up to the wedding, she was always attentive to us and was very detail oriented on the timeline, which definitely put me at ease. She was also very accommodating and flexible with our requests. On the day of the wedding she made us feel very comfortable and got along with all of our guests. The photos turned out beautiful and we're still getting compliments on them. If you're looking for someone who is fun, creative and talented choose Jenna because she will deliver an amazing experience! Thanks Jenna and we hope to work with you again in the future!
i got to know jenna well before my wedding, and that was so important to my husband and i since our special day was based around our family and closest friends. she wasn't just a wedding photographer awkwardly telling us how to pose, she was a guest and an absolute joy.
we chose to have our pictures done after the ceremony, and although we desperately wanted to be inside mingling with everyone she made having our pictures taken fun and not a "can we go drink now" part of our day. even my husband, who wasn't so keen on the idea of standing around for an hour in front of a camera, had a blast. we laughed the whole time and i really think that shows in all of our pictures. at the end of the day jenna had captured every little detail, those special candid moments and every feeling i had, and that was important to me in a wedding photographer. i can't wait to show my great grandchildren these pictures one day.
i'm such a fan of jenna and creatrix photography. we've become close friends since my wedding and i love that. i would suggest her a million times over to photograph your wedding if i could! (:
We've hired Jenna from Creatrix to do our wedding in January. Normally I'd wait until after the event to leave a review but even just meeting with Jenna was an experience enough to rave about!
We've been meeting with vendors for the last couple of months and usually the typical meeting is a little awkward with a generally business-like approach. From the moment we sat down with Jenna it was like meeting a friend for a cup of coffee and talking about what they've been doing lately!
We were so pleased and excited - my fiance wanted to call her and hire her an hour after the meeting just in case someone else MIGHT book her...even though we had another appointment with someone else the next day! Thankfully no one booked her before we got back to her!
Jenna has welcomed us into the family on Facebook and kept in touch with us via e-mail, text msgs, and phone calls...I LOVE being able to communicate with her almost instantly! She's also taken great pains to get to know more about us as a couple rather than as just another job to do. We even found out that she and I share the same birthday!!! It's so nice to have found a vendor I'm excited to work with and feel comfortable with!
I'm writing this mostly because, if you're looking for someone to photograph your wedding, Jenna is fun, friendly, talented, and definitely a joy to work with!
UPDATE: The wedding is done and Jenna was SO AWESOME!! Everything I've already mentioned still applies but working with her on the actual day was just so enjoyable and easy. If you need a photographer and you want them to be fun, personable, and yet tough enough to get the job done...then stop here and call Jenna now!
THANK YOU Jenna!!
