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!!
Jenna is a delight! This was important for me and my bride because I never know how photographers will respond when they find out we're a lesbian couple. I believe if the photographer is weird with this the pictures show it, but not Jenna. She made us feel as we were celebrating our love in the real "rainbow" state. That aside, the photos were phenomenal! I loved her ability to use natural light. She's the one you want to capture how the moment felt. We've never looked so good.
Jenna could easily moonlight as a comedian. Ask her to tell you the joke about the seagull...hilarious!
We hired Jenna to photograph our wedding last month. We couldn't be happier with Jenna! We already have all of our images and they are beautiful. Jenna really goes out of her way to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible. She is incredibly responsive and will usually respond within the same day. She doesn't just want to be your photographer, she genuinely wants to know YOU. You are not just another date on the calendar with Jenna. She is invested in your day and making it special She is incredibly passionate about her work and strives to please her clients. As an added bonus, she even came to the rehearsal dinner to capture that night for us as well! We love the images and will treasure them always. Hire Jenna and you won't be disappointed.
We had a great experience working with Jenna Clark at Creatrix Photography for our wedding on Oahu in January 2013. We planned the wedding long-distance (from NYC) and Jenna took the time to email and talk with us in advance to get to know us, hear about our vision for the wedding, and offer advice about the location. We had never done professional photos before and Jenna made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, giving helpful direction that felt natural. She has a great energy and isn’t afraid to be goofy to get everyone laughing. She was able to capture both the majestic setting and close-up portraits with great style and expertise. We received our images promptly, while still on our honeymoon, and could share them easily with friends and family through the dedicated website she provided. Our photos are amazing, perfectly capturing the day, the setting, and our personalities-- we’re still getting compliments. We highly recommend Jenna!
On the biggest day of our lives, Creatrix founder Jenna Clark and her team captured the most remarkable photos of our dearest friends, family, Andrew and me. As newlyweds, we feel very fortunate to have secured Jenna as our wedding photographer. Combining the finest photography equipment with boundless talent, Jenna delivers scenic, authentic and exquisite high res color and BW images. In fact, we used our engagement photo session images taken by Jenna on February 18, 2013 to make drink coasters and souvenir boxes (http://www.myownlabels.com/) for our gift bags. From the first email exchange through the final delivery of wedding photos, Jenna has always been prompt, professional, creative, friendly, fun and affordable. Jenna supported us through a very difficult time when we lost our original wedding venue 45 days before wedding day, due to Kathy Ireland [Destination Weddings] violations with City and County of Honolulu. Luckily, the majestic Banyan Tree Beach Estate came through for us and Jenna embraced the new landscape. As a result, we have the most beautiful wedding photos on the beach in Portlock at sunset to savor for a lifetime. Thank you Jenna and we wish you continued and endless success.
My fiancé and I got engaged before a trip to Hawaii and we really wanted to take our engagement pictures there. However, since we're located in AZ I sent a bunch of emails out and Jenna responded in a quick, friendly, and professional manner.
The day of the shoot, Jenna put us at ease and took some really great sunrise engagement pictures in Haleiwa. I'm still getting compliments on the pictures!
5 stars - Taking awesome pics of someone who doesn't enjoy taking pictures
5 stars - Responsiveness
5 Stars - Great Price and Value
Jenna took our engagement photos and it was so much fun! She was also shooting her promo video while doing her shoot so she wanted to make sure we were comfortable with PDA. It was a total blast! She made us feel comfortable and complimented us through out the whole shoot. She helped us with poses but also let us just be.
She got our photo's to us very quickly and they are absolutely lovely! Very professional and friendly at the same time!
