Believe the hype! posted 5/21/2013

JLB is the most talented photographer I've come across. My husband and I planned a small family wedding, the one thing I refused to sacrifice was a photographer. I searched the internet high and low and feel so fortunate to have come across JLB. We ultimately decided on a wedding date based on his availability and he did not disappoint. Every photo is outstanding and he couldn't have been more fun, nice or professional. He left our wedding at 11:30pm and by 1:00am there were already teaser photos online - I'm not sure how he does it! He seriously amazing and I would hire him again in a heart beat!

Jeffrey is the best! posted 5/22/2013

Thank you Jeffrey for capturing my wedding in your amazing photos. You are an original and your work speaks for itself! My husband and I are honored to have worked with you. We chose not to have a videographer because we knew Jeffrey could capture and preserve our moments in his photos the way we'd like to remember them. We were right! We highly recommend Jeffrey. He is a consummate professional with a creative eye unlike any other. Thanks Jeffrey!!

JLB is the best! posted 11/21/2012

Hands down one of, if not the best choice we made as far as our wedding goes. JLB was great in capturing what we were exactly looking for. Right from our first meeting, we were really comfortable with Jeff and what he wanted to capture for our wedding.

He definitely listens to what his customers are looking for and makes sure he is a match with the couple.

He really blended in during our wedding day and felt like one of the family.

Last but not least, the pictures of course turned out great. We didn't know what to expect from the poses and angles he was making us do until we saw the prints.
Thanks again for everything JLB!!!

OUT OF THS WORLD posted 6/25/2014 (modified 6/25/2014)

Jeffrey is the absolute best. No question about it. If you are reading this, you are probably an over thinker like myself because his photos speak for themselves. They are unlike any wedding photos I have seen, so unique, so creative. But what you don't see in his photos is the experience you have with Jeffrey on the most important day of your life, your wedding day. You don't get to see his calming nature and swift ability to capture every precious moment and detail. Let's just say that our experience was equally as phenomenal as his photos are! Jeffrey is calm, creative, and simply amazing at his craft. He knows exactly what to say and do. I would venture to call him a genius in his arena.. truly mastering his art. Our sneak peak was posted the very next morning, allowing my family to gather around the computer and gasp at the greatness of them. My grandfather who does not have internet at his home was able to sit with me and examine how precious the day was. This is uncharacteristic of wedding photographers. I got chills from head to toe looking at our animated photo a few days later. It is priceless and perfect to us. As was our entire experience with Jeffrey. Chris and I have not been able to stop talking about how claiming and talented he is. My jitters went out the window and we were both in awe of his ability to do the job singlehandedly.

I could go on for days about our experience and how thankful and grateful we are for Jeffrey being apart of our day. He was the absolute best choice we made in this entire wedding planning process. In fact, in our eyes, he is the only photographer we would have wanted. Anyone else would have paled in comparison. He is truly in a league of his own - with talent that is exponential. We are so thankful to rank among the lucky people who have gotten the chance to work with him. It was an absolute privilege. Worth every single penny. Save money on something else....trust me!!!!

It was great working with JLB! On our wedding day, he was organized, relaxed, and we received multiple compliments from the bridal party about how much they enjoyed working with him. He was both accommodating and had so many great ideas throughout the day. He had an amazing creative eye, which produced some awesome pictures. He posted our teaser pictures the day after our wedding and we had the online gallery by the end of the week. We are so happy with our pictures, as they look amazing. We highly recommend JLB!

amazing photos! posted 6/12/2014

We love our wedding photos and we loved working with Jeffrey! He has a great eye for composition, and knew just where to take us for our pre-ceremony photographs. His direction was fantastic -- we never felt overly staged or posed, and he seemed to want to capture the real "us." And he was so unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception that we barely noticed he was there. And yet we have the beautiful photos to prove it! Definitely hire him!

One AMAZING Photographer... posted 6/4/2014 (modified 6/4/2014)

Words just cannot express what a wonderful experience it was working with JLBWedding. Not only is Jeff a phenomenal photographer with unparalleled skill and vision, but he is a consummate professional and has an uncanny way of capturing moments that you will treasure for a lifetime. My husband and I appreciated the amount of time and care that he put into making our day come alive through his work.

Our wedding pictures (as well as the others in his entire client portfolio) are among THE BEST artistic work in photography, hands down!

Fantastic Experience! posted 6/3/2014 (modified 6/3/2014)

Great experience. He is very laid back and he gives lots of directions. Jeffrey comes up with a ton of great ideas on the spot.

You will definitely get a good amount of great, unique shots. His work really speaks for itself, just take a look at his website. I suggest looking through his engagement and wedding pictures to get ideas before your shoot.

No regrets having Jeffrey shoot our engagement and wedding pictures. Everyone enjoyed having him be part of our big day.

I cannot say enough good things about working with Jeffery. He captured our wedding day so beautifully that I cannot even put it into works. His photos really do speak for themselves! Some of the highlights of our wedding day was our one on one time with Jeffery. He has a way of making you feel so comfortable that at times you almost forget he's even there, and that I think is how he manages to capture your true self! I was able to get some quiet time with my husband before the madness of the wedding all while having gorgeous photos taken of us. He is extremely prompt and has some teaser photos up on his Facebook the day after your wedding which is AMAZING. I don't know very many other photographers that do that. Not to mention he had our preview of our wedding album done in under a week....so amazing! We also had him take our engagement photos and I HIGHLY recommend doing that as well! It made the day of the wedding go more smoothly because you learn how Jeffery likes to work. Thank you so much Jeffery for making our day so special!

Picture God posted 1/20/2014 (modified 1/21/2014)

We hired Jeffrey to photograph our New Year's Eve wedding. I promise all brides and grooms that his photos and his professionalism go above and beyond his price tag. Jeffrey was able to capture the most important moments of our wedding day candidly and artistically. He was professional and easy to work with; I barely noticed he was there once the wedding started. As he does for all couples, he posted a sneak preview of our pictures on Facebook the very next day. They were absolutely amazing, and I have looked at those pictures everyday since the wedding to relive our memories!

As the bride, I would say that choosing Jeffrey was the best decision I made for my wedding (other than the groom of course). I have granted Jeffrey the well-deserved title of "Picture God."

Brilliant Photography posted 10/21/2013

My husband and I could not be happier with the quality of service and photographs from our engagement session and our wedding. JLB is very professional and creative, all while being laid back and funny. We had an amazing time with him and felt comfortable right from the beginning. JLB exceeded expectations and has a brilliant future ahead. Thank you so much, JLB!! :)

What a great experience! posted 9/29/2013

If you are looking for someone who is down to Earth, has fun while doing his job and knows what you want with very few words being said, then Jeff is your guy! I didn't give him very many details of what kind of pictures I wanted, because I felt confident that he would be able to capture the my wedding day perfectly....and he did. :) My bridal party had a great time with him, and I was very pleased to have him with us that day.

His pictures are extremely beautiful! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful pictures! He shoots nontraditional wedding photos while capturing the beauty of his subjects. His natural style of photography makes for easy experience; I never felt inconvenienced or uncomfortable.

Do not waste your time or money on another photographer. Trust me you will not be disappointed with Jeff.

JLB at Indian Springs Metro Park posted 9/7/2013 (modified 9/7/2013)

Where to start? You know your getting amazing photos just buy looking at JLB's website for a minute! We booked for our engagements and wedding. Our engagement session was a breeze, either of us never being photographed before, we still felt at ease, with his relaxed and carefree style! But you certainly dont receive carefree photos, somehow he manages to maintain a light attitude but deliver hardcore works of art! Typically, everybody wants photos for their engagements and wedding, but if you want works of art, hire JLB. Yes, you still get those, essential photos for the wedding, but you will also have your choice of beautiful works of art to display on your wall! After shooting our engagements, I felt even more comfortable going into our wedding, in his hands. Right from the start we were pressed for time, and knowing how amazing the photos are we wanted to get in as many as possible. I cant tell you how much JLB hustled, and wiped people into shape to do everything he could so we could get as many pictures as possible. This was another side of him I didnt know yet. You end up with a carefree and relaxed individual who gets down to business when needed. Our family is very large, and taking photos has been an hour event many times, I believe JLB shot all our family is 10-15 minutes. Impressive.

We received our teaser photos in lighting fast time, and we were able to share the moments with friends and family. Your wedding will fly by I promise that, and typically the only thing you have after its all done, is photos to help trigger your memories. Do not skimp on photos. With JLB you will be doing the opposite of cutting corners. You will be ensuring you have lasting memories, works of art, and all your friends and family being jealous of YOUR photos! Honestly, you'd be foolish not to hire JLB if you live in the Metro-Detroit area. I simply cannot wait to get our products, as he offers the perfect packages and products you'd want after your wedding. With his graphic design skills, I know our wedding album will blow, every single album I see from now on, a way! Lastly, and I could go on and on raving about JLB, he went the extra mile. We forgot a special shot we had planned, and JLB went above and beyond what was required of him! I feel a lot of people would have said, it was out of their hands, but he found a way to make it happen! Now, we just have to convince JLB to come take pictures of our family, kids, and other special moments in our lives!!

We were really happy with Jeffrey and his team. He's really talented and I like how laid back he was. My wife and I really appreciated his style, compositions, and color options. Everyone loved the photo booth at the wedding and people kept commenting on how professional and nice the whole team was. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone.

JLB is Amazing posted 9/4/2013

I find that I’m at a loss for words since all of Jeffrey’s awards and magazine write-ups pretty much say it all already. What I can say first and foremost, is that Jeffrey is a true artist and designer behind the camera. I work in advertising and new right away that I was going to be picky about our wedding photographer. I met up with him in a coffee shop for the first time over a year ago and was simply blown away. I found him on Facebook shortly after and continued to be blown away every time he posted sneak peeks from other weddings. Obviously his photographs are amazing, but his packages and color options make him truly unique. Also, his wedding albums are stunning and a true work of art.

JLB is a master behind the camera…period. His work speaks for itself, so I feel I don’t need to gush about the technical side…although I could. So instead I’d like this review to honor the man behind the camera. I’ve never felt more at ease in front of a camera for starters. Jeffrey did a wonderful job directing us. I have to say that the poses I was unsure about in the moment ended up being my favorite shots every single time. His attention to detail, composition, and lighting really put my mind at ease. Overall he really has a wonderful calming effect that I think we all felt. JLB is professional, on time, and completely exceeds expectations. We had sneak peaks of our engagement session before we even got home! His excitement for trying new things and pushing the bar really showed throughout the whole engagement session and wedding day. It’s easy to see right away that this man is passionate about his craft. I also really appreciate his dedication. For the wedding, we hired him to stay with us late into the night for the after-party. Like a lot of weddings, life happens and there were a few chaotic things that hit us at the end of the night. Jeffrey stuck with us anyway and concentrated on getting great shots out of the madness.

I need to also give a ton of credit to Jeffrey’s team members. Beth & Stephen Douglas were so nice and captured every little detail of the day. It’s comforting and exciting to know that they were there to document all the details of the day that we were not there to see. To all of the future Brides out there, I can’t stress enough the importance of hiring someone who isn’t going to just take a few good pictures but instead will truly document the whole day down to the tiniest of details. Beth was all over the place taking what must have been hundreds of pictures from people dancing to the lit candles and party favors. Stephen ran the photo booth, which was really unique because it ensured that the silliest of pictures still looked fantastic. My guests kept commenting, not only on how professional the team was, but also at how nice they were.

Jeffrey, words can’t possibly begin to explain how happy we are and how thankful we are to you and your team. Thank you so very much for capturing all the special moments. We can’t wait to work with you again as our family grows.

Jeffrey applies the technical crafts of taking and editing photographs and uses them to induce an emotion through the poignant capturing of great beauty, I call this art.

Weddings and the exciting time of being newly engaged is already an incredibly special time. Jeffrey captures love, joy, sincerity, happiness, commitment, etc. and shows their magic. Furthermore, he bottles, or in this case prints/develops an ephemeral time in peoples lives that they want to re-experience over and over again and allows them to do so.

Choosing JLB Wedding was the first decision we made after choosing our venue. I searched for hours for the right photographer for my fiance and I's vision of our wedding. I wasn't searching for a person who could take pictures of weddings, but rather for an artist that would properly capture our vision and personalities and help us to remember the spirit of our wedding and that time in our life. It was obvious when looking at Jeffrey's pictures that he was committed to his craft while shooting and during the editing. His color processing options are unmatched(remember the hours of searching?)and his display of those options are also unmatched. His website is clear and easy to understand, and Jeffrey is so easy and fun to work with. You will leave your shoot with him wanting to hang out more.

We are honored that Jeffrey chose to work with us and that we were able to have the pleasure of shooting our wedding and engagement photos with him. We could not be more happy with JLB Wedding and will savor our wedding and engagement for the rest of our lives through the gift of photography he gave us.

Booking JLB Wedding is one of the best decisions you can make for your wedding!!

Money well spent! posted 8/26/2013

Jeffrey is extremely professional and very talented at his craft. I initially chose him to photograph my wedding because I was drawn to his composition of frames. He has a good eye for capturing space as well as his subjects. I was amazed at how quickly we saw photos after both the engagement session and the wedding. I have had many, many complements from friends and family. It was definitely money well spent for our event and I would recommend him to all my friends.

Jeffrey's artistry speaks for itself, but luckily, his appeal goes beyond amazing photography, design, and aesthetic innovation.

Jeffrey’s attitude, demeanor, and attentiveness are equally impressive. He is a pleasure to spend time with; in fact, my whole bridal party raved about how much fun they had with him. Additionally, he is prompt and professional in all matters. Hiring Jeffrey was well worth the investment, and we couldn't be happier with our JLB wedding experience. It was an honor to work with you, Jeffrey.
