Let me start this review by saying the ladies at Bend the Light are AMAZING! We could not have picked a better photography team to document such a special time in our lives (and neither could you…seriously…you need to hire these ladies right now!). Bend the Light’s photos are stunning and as soon as I came across their website, I knew we had to hire them immediately. From the get go Kaylinn was super helpful. She helped us plan our timeline and any other details of our wedding day that might affect our photos. She was quick to respond to all my emails and is such a genuinely sweet person. Jenn was equally amazing and we had so much fun with her at both our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. I am pretty camera shy and was worried about whether I would like our photos, but Jenn captured “us” perfectly. Her ability to capture a couple’s unique love story is an amazing gift. But what really makes Bend the Light so special is that Jenn and Kaylinn really care about all of their clients so much. And, by the time our wedding day finally arrived, it didn’t feel like a stranger behind a camera anymore as much as it felt like celebrating with friends. All this to say, you should totally hire these ladies. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Kaylinn and Jenn were the best team my husband and I could have asked for! From my first (45 minute) call with Kaylinn, to receiving our images less than 3 weeks after our wedding, they were true partners throughout our experience. Kaylinn has a great demeanor, knows what she is doing and is quick to respond to all questions. Jenn was a true professional at our engagement session and again for our wedding day. She’s great about checking in, making sure you have all the photos you want. And the second photographer Josh was great too. They make it easy to plan everything out and give you the confidence everything will turn out how you imagined (or even better!). I would highly recommend Bend the Light, you can see their quality through their blog online, but their personalities really set them apart! Thanks for everything ladies!
Book them NOW!Reviewed on 8/13/2015
You will NOT regret this choice for your wedding. I researched many photographers and kept coming back to their beautiful work. I was exceedingly impressed with their beforehand process (asking me specific questions, taking the time to get to know me, my wedding "look", etc.). Seriously, no detail was left out! The day of the wedding, they were incredibly attentive and got every shot I had asked for and more. Both our families made numerous comments on how impressed they were with them! Now the hardest part of booking them...choosing which pictures to print/purchase!! I have already recommended them to friends and family for their special day!
OMG Bend the Light is AMAZINGGG at what they do!! They made every single picture come out so great and everyone looked like models. Seriously, you guys. I'm so glad I chose these ladies to capture my day as I had a smooth experience working with the team from day one! There's not one photo that I didn't like, and the style is so timeless and beautiful, I 100% highly recommend Bend the Light to any future couple! You go, girls! :)
There are only a few special things that stick out throughout our whole wedding planning process that we will always cherish, and one of them, without a doubt, is working with the lovely and talented ladies of Bend the Light Photography. I can’t tell you how many times I had a million different wedding uncertainties in my head but knew that our photographer was one I didn’t have to worry about. Jenn has an unparalleled eye for light and warmth that creates the most beautiful pictures; so beautiful, in fact, that you can’t believe that it’s you in them! Kaylinn is also a delight to work with. Every single phone call I had with her had me laughing and smiling at the end of it. Not to mention our wedding pictures came out absolutely stunning! We have so many favorites that it is virtually impossible to pick just one to frame or post. If you value timeless photos and working with good, kind hearted people like we do, please do not hesitate to book Bend the Light for your wedding. I PROMISE you that it will be the best investment you make on your wedding day!
I had a wonderful experience with Bend The Light Photography from every single detail they had it covered! I loved all the information they provide you and the excellent follow through with their service. I would recommend them 100% and I know how important these pictures are and you will not be disappointed if you pick BTL! Not to forget the pictures were great- beautiful and stunning images, I had no clue me and my fiancé could look that good!
Where do I even begin! These ladies are just flat out amazing! They did my bridals in San Antonio and then did my wedding in Houston! Everything picture they take is gorgeous and they are so much fun!
BTL was absolutely wonderful to work with! All of their staff were friendly, fun, and their photos are absolutely beautiful! Even when we sprung a location change on them at the very last minute, they were not phased at all. They worked actual magic directing our massive families through the shots. I could not be happier!
When it came to wedding photographers I knew I needed the best and I was not willing to gamble on the quality. That's what lead me directly to Bend the Light. Their portfolio is beautiful, and a quick phone call with Kaylinn assured me that we could easily have a great working relationship. They were there to answer any and all questions along the way. It goes without saying, but the photos are PHENOMENAL. I'm the third child in my family and my dad openly commented that these are the best wedding photos he's ever seen :) They were so helpful and available on the wedding day, while not being over-bearing or too demanding. We got every photo we wanted and a ton more. They really captured the details beautifully, which meant a lot to us. I could go on and on, but basically, I highly recommend and I'd use them again in a heartbeat.
We absolutely enjoyed working with Bend the Light. They captured beautiful moments at our engagement session and on our wedding day. They pay attention to detail, follow-up and are just fun to work with. We have no regrets and are just thrilled with how the pictures turned out. I am so happy that we hired BTL! Thank you ladies for your hard work and making our day extra special. I can't stop looking at our photos!
Jenn and Kaylinn were absolutely amazing! They did an incredible job at helping with my Bridal pictures and I am still obsessing over all the wedding pictures. Jenn did a wonderful job at helping my husband and I feel comfortable in front of a camera and she truly captured all the emotions of our special day. They truly are worth every single penny and will not disappoint you. I am so happy that they were the ones to capture my special day.
We loved working with Bend the Light for our wedding photography. They were great to work with, and our photos turned out amazing! All our friends and family are telling us they look fantastic. BTL was also very prompt at getting our photography delivered to us! If your wedding photos are a priority for you (and they should be), then I'd highly recommend working with them!
I fell in love with Jen and Kaylinn's work when they did my best friend's wedding in 2012, and I remember wishing we could have them at our wedding, but we live on the east coast. Fast forward a few years and when we actually decided to get married, we settled on San Antonio after all, and I got to have my dream photographer! Both Jen and Kaylinn were incredibly helpful in the lead-up to the wedding, and even though we were doing almost everything long distance they helped make all of the planning go seamlessly. Day-of, Jen and Adrien were AMAZING. They caught all the best moments, both posed and spontaneous, and I can't stop looking at all of our photos. Thank you for capturing everything that made our wedding such a special day! Your work will help us remember the day forever.
ATTENTION: Bend The Light will blow you away with their talent, professionalism, and unique style. I promise this will be one of the best wedding decisions you could make. These ladies have the EYE for gorgeous, sweet, & sincere wedding and portrait photography that is hard to match. They will make you look better than you thought possible! :) My new husband and I are so in love with our engagement and wedding photos and are excited for the beautiful flush mount album we will be getting!! Seriously, budget elsewhere and hire Bend The Light! <3
After a wedding is complete, the bride typically gives advice to couples that are engaged about what she learned from planning a wedding. The biggest piece of advice that I would give to future brides would be to use Bend The Light Photography for their own special day. They made it such an enjoyable experience for us and ensured that we got all the staged wedding photos we wanted, while capturing every precious moment during the ceremony and reception. Guests at the wedding kept asking where the photographers were because they did such a good job at blending. Their positive energy and organized style made them unbelievably easy to work with. It allowed for the groom and myself to feel at ease and feel comfortable so they were able to capture truly geniune moments. I greatly appreciate the work that Jenn and Kaylinn did.
The ladies at Bend the Light are simply incredible. They made everything so easy and stress free! Kaylinn responded absurdly quick to all of my many questions before and after our wedding, and always seemed to share our excitement for our big day. She assured me they would be prepared for our purple uplighting, and that we wouldn't look like martians in the photos. She helped me put together a reasonable timeline, and the list of family photos we wanted. I couldn't have done it without her! We did an engagement photo session to get used to the idea of having our photos taken, and we ended up loving almost every picture! Our wedding day was no different. Jenn worked with our coordinator flawlessly. We didn't make it easy on them by having our ceremony very close to sunset and not doing a first look, but they were still able to get tons of beautiful photos for us. They seemed to be everywhere and nowhere all at once... I never noticed them during the ceremony and didn't feel they intruded in any way whatsoever during the night. Best of all, we had our photos back in TWO WEEKS! I truly don't know how they are able to produce such high quality work so quickly, but it was amazing to have pictures to show everyone when we got home from our honeymoon. I can't recommend Bend the Light highly enough... in all of the stress of planning a wedding, I didn't consider how the photographer is really the key to preserving the great memories from our big day. I am so thankful we chose Bend the Light and will have their beautiful work as a keepsake forever.
Best Decision I Made (right behind saying 'yes'!)Reviewed on 1/26/2016 Whitney L
I can't even begin to start! Bend the Light was a huge part of our process - from engagements, bridals, and the big day! They worked so great with us every step of the way! They really captured our personalities and even captured our dogs perfectly on our wedding day and engagements - even though my husband's dog was a wild child! I was EXTREMELY picky with my photographer. I looked for countless hours and honestly, only cared about photos on the big day - not flowers, cake, etc. Bend the Light was definitely worth the search and you can truly tell that they are passionate about what they do! If only everyone could love their jobs that much! I will definitely be looking to recommend them to everyone I know who is getting married!! Thanks again BTL!
BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS EVER!Reviewed on 12/28/2015 Jill H
I cannot say enough fabulous things about Jenn and Kaylinn. First off, they are both just awesome people. They make you feel so relaxed and comfortable from the get-go. And of course, their photos are absolutely incredible. Jenn has an amazing eye and always gets the best shots. She really can bend the light to her favor! We used Bend the Light for our engagement photos as well and there were so many great photos it was next to impossible to choose which to print and display! And I am having the same wonderful problem with our wedding photos! Not only are the photos unbelievable, the ladies are very prompt in returning them as well. I was amazed to receive all of our wedding photos less than 2 weeks after the wedding (and there were so many!). They are also prompt in responding to emails. And walking you through the wedding day timeline if you need help in that area! I HIGHLY recommend Bend the Light if you want modern, spectacular photos. Check out their website and blog to get some examples of their work! That's how I first fell in love with their work :)
Best Photographers in TownReviewed on 12/11/2015 Nona H
After reviewing most of San Antonio's photographers online, we chose Bend the Light for my daughter's November wedding. From the first contact until the last, they were friendly, professional, and personable. Kaylinn, the Studio Manager, always promptly returned my calls and answered my questions. I have never felt that I was wasting her time. We chose a wedding package that included bridal portraits, and full wedding and reception coverage with two photographers. My daughter opted out of bridal portraits, so Bend the Light did engagement photos instead. Jennifer, the photographer, took the engagement photos at Market Square. Almost instantly she made my daughter and her fiancé feel at ease. She is energetic, bubbly, and knows what she is doing. With photography being my hobby , I tend to be critical, but she most definitely had the knowledge and creativity to get beautiful shots. Jennifer came to the rehearsal dinner and spent 10 hours on the wedding day along with another photographer. We have many fabulous photos of every facet of the wedding. And the photos are so much better than what I see on the internet. So natural and unposed. . We had our photos within two weeks online. We are able to order from Bend the Light and prices are reasonable. We also have the ability to upload on our computer and post on social media or print photos elsewhere. I highly recommend Bend the Light. If you want a truly professional photographer and photos that stand out from all the rest, Bend the Light is definitely the one to call. Nona Hall One Happy Mom
THE BESTReviewed on 12/11/2015 Annie S
I am so so so happy I chose Bend The Light Photography! Our photos are simply amazing! I literally love every single photo, and they truly captured the love between my husband & I. Jenn and Kaylinn are so fun to work with, and made us feel extremely comfortable. Our pictures arrived so fast, and I have looked at them every day since receiving them. They are everything I ever wanted & I can't thank them enough! BEST WEDDING DECISION I EVER MADE!!
Amazing Engagement PhotosReviewed on 12/11/2015 Taylor S
Bend the light did our engagement photos and they turned out absolutely beautiful. They are fun and so easy to work with. They are comparable in price to any other high quality wedding photographer. They also did my sister's wedding! Would absolutely recommend them to any bride!
Beautiful pictures and SO fun to work with!Reviewed on 11/02/2015 Heather B
Bend the Light girls were so fun and easy to work with starting from the very first email exchange I had with them! They not only took absolutely amazing pictures, but they also were there to help me find the additional vendors I was still needing for the wedding day! They are professional, organized, and so sweet I couldn't say enough about how amazing it was to work with them. They get to know you so they understand your style and know exactly which shots you want to be sure they take, and are also there and so flexible to fit in those last minute ones you think of right then! I knew without a doubt my wedding pictures would be phenomenal after seeing my bridal portraits and my family having such a hard time choosing between those! It is such a great feeling knowing beforehand that your pictures are going to turn out beautifully and have no concerns about them getting the job done! I would recommend Bend the Light to any and all families and brides who are looking for a wonderful experience and pictures that will blow you away!! I look forward to getting the opportunity to work with these girls again soon!!
If I could give 10 stars... I wouldReviewed on 10/21/2015 Kim S
This was our first chioce of vendors once we got engaged! These girls are extremely detail oriented and take fantastic pictures! We have recieved so many compliments on the pictures and really have had such a hard time picking a favorite because they are all so good. They did a nice job at the reception of capturing our family and friends in fun moments as well as capturing all the details of the wedding. For us, pictures were are #1 priority and they exceeded all of our expectations. It was nice to have such confidence in a vendor and know that you were going to love seeing the results!
Best Decision EVER :)Reviewed on 6/29/2015 Leah C
We chose Bend the Light as our engagement and wedding photographers after several days of research. From the first email and phone call we received to our AMAZING wedding photos, they remained professional, efficient, and never once disappointed us. We are SO in love with our engagement photos, bridal photos, and of course our breathtaking wedding photos. Jenn and Lisa were such a joy to have with us on our wedding day, and Kaylinn was extremely quick at responding to our emails/phone calls and assisting us with all of our questions and concerns. We will forever cherish all of the memories captured throughout the most important time of our lives. My husband and I can't wait to book more photo sessions with Jenn in the near future!
Bend the Light is Awesome!Reviewed on 5/26/2015 Allison J
When we got engaged, my fiance and I decided that one thing we really would allow ourselves to splurge on was the photography- and we're so glad we did! Kaylinn and Jen were not only easy to get ahold of and communicate with throughout our year long engagement, but they answered any and every question (there were a lot!) that we had. The pictures Jen and assistant photographer Josh took at the wedding are unbelievable. Bend the Light may seem pricy at first, but the quality of their photos, Jen's artistic and creative eye, and their level of customer service and support makes every penny well worth it. We are so thrilled with our photos, which they got back to us within just a few weeks after the wedding. Can't recommend Bend the Light highly enough.
