Artistic, Modern, Romantic Photography

Natural, romantic, elegantly captured moments- My photography style can be described as romantic and elegant. I’m always looking for those in between moments on your special day… the ones that happen in the blink of an eye.

From start to finish, this process is centered around you. I want to bring your vision to life and ensure you’re taken care of. Believe me when I say I am just as excited to hear about your wedding as you are to talk to about it!

Words can't describe how thankful my husband and I were that we chose Captured Couture to be our photography for our wedding. When searching for a photographer, we came across this photographer and all the reviews really drew us to search further. We looked at her website and... Read More saw the beautiful photos she taken and wanted to meet with her instantly! The pictures and details she captures is incredible. Jennifer is by far the most talented photographer. Meeting her, we knew she was a perfect fit for us because she was so welcoming, outgoing, and personable yet still professional. Everything was beyond accurate about Jennifer! Instantly we felt comfortable with her and that's huge because your photographer is with you almost the entire day of the wedding! Jennifer was extremely easy to work with. She is very organized and has all the details of what she does easily spelled out for you. She creates a timeline of the day which is HUGE to help coordinate with all the other vendors and events taking place on the big day so they know the time she needs to get the photos you want. The day of the wedding I did not have any worry, Jennifer and her assistant made sure all the little details that we spent the time and money on were captured. She made sure any picture we wanted happened. We would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone and already have!!

Jennifer is THE BEST PERSON. She is so warm and supportive and incredibly quick with communication and help as you're planning. I am truly so happy that she was our photographer. Some things that were great: -She was totally open to (or rather, sought out) our specific feedback... Read More and ideas about what we wanted, and wasn't at all pushy or offended with our preference to go in a certain direction with the look of the photos; -We were nervous and awkward about having our photo taken and she was incredibly encouraging and made us feel relaxed. The engagement session was really helpful for that - I didn't know if we needed that but I'm glad we did it for that reason. -She's flexible and positive and doesn't get frazzled with the need to make on-the-spot changes or game-time calls about things (e.g. our engagements were in the most disgusting weather of the month and she was 100% chipper about however we wanted to do them - we ended up staying outside and they were great); -The investment is completely reasonable compared to the outrageous (to me, no offense to photographers) cost of others I looked into; -I was so surprised to see the ceremony photos because I literally don't remember her being there haha, she just got these amazing, intimate shots of different moments during the ceremony when I literally had no idea she was standing there. It was very cool. I say this while also appreciating that I think for all weddings, the people-walking-up-and-down-the-aisle shots are action shots and therefore a little, shall we say, organic - like my face looks a touch crazy with emotion - but that's what was really happening! If your expectations around those particular shots are realistic you'll be delighted (e.g. you probably won't look like Pinterest models in that shot unless you put your emotions back together, stop walking, and pose, which you likely won't want to do). -Her style is very classic yet versatile. Some other photographers look super hipster-Instagram-ish, but I feel confident that we will think these photos look normal for decades to come, rather than being like, so THAT style was a thing in the mid-2010s. At the same time, she did give us a couple photos that were edited in different styles (e.g. black and white) so we have some variety. -We got SO MANY PHOTOS. Like it's going to take a second to go through them all. But we have so many options and settings and memories to pick from when narrowing down what we'll frame, etc. Pro tip 1: we did our first look and family photos before the ceremony and we were glad we did. We were so overwhelmed with emotion and wanting to celebrate after the ceremony (plus I cried a bunch) that it would've felt annoying to force ourselves back into an administrative moment of family photos. Pro tip 2: We asked our officiant to make an announcement about putting away cameras and phones before the start of the processional, so the photos aren't a mess of folks holding up electronics. Awesome pictures, so awesome at communication and logistics, but honestly the best and I think most important thing about Jennifer is her personality. I felt like she had my back and like our needs and preferences were the center of our interactions with her. The wedding day is such a long, intense, strange, and stressful day that it's a godsend to have such a relaxed and supportive buddy throughout it. She is the best, best person. We're so impressed with her spirit and so grateful for her work.

Jennifer was the 2nd photographer I spoke to when trying to pick who we wanted to capture our beautiful day... Right when I saw her I immediately knew she was the one!!

I could go on and on, but I'm not joking when I say I she is perfect.

Jennifer is amazing. My partner and I discovered Captured Couture by looking for photographers who had done wedding at our venue (The Whitney-Detroit) and we couldn't be more excited to have Jennifer capture our wedding day. Jennifer is the best and I can't stress that enough.... Read More WE are having a small/intimate wedding and she came prepared with different packages to offer us based on what we asked for and our budget. We saw some of her work at our first meeting and her work was really good-a lot better than other work we'd seen from other photographers. My fiance, who is usually a hard sell, was sold on having Jennifer be our wedding photographer and so was I. During the next few months we worked with Jennifer to schedule our engagement session. We are very busy, and the weather was not working with us but luckily Jennifer was very accommodating. Our engagement went off without a hitch. My partner and I are kind of camera shy but Jennifer made us feel like naturals and our pictures came out great. Before we left the shoot she showed us one of the pictures and we were in amazed at how incredible the picture looked. Jennifer is the BOMB.COM

We found Jennifer after feeling disappointed with our engagement photos from another photography company. Once I met with her I knew we were making a better choice, she actually connected with us, listened to what we wanted, and ultimately delivered tons of stunning images!... Read More Rather than chugging out some stiff, generic pics (like our previous experience) she captured our emotions, our body language is natural and it reflects our unique relationship. I don't think you can produce this type of art without a genuine bond with your client, and she definitely takes the time to nurture this relationship. Throughout the whole planning process she was attentive, helpful, and supportive. I truly believe her expertise as a wedding photographer is most apparent in her organization on the wedding day, she gets people to the right place at the right time-- her pre-planned timeline helped everything run smoothly and it was much easier to coordinate with other vendors. For us Jennifer was the goldilocks photographer, the perfect balance between "fly on the wall photojournalist" and giving some direction to help us look good in the pics. She has outstanding artistic vision and uses natural light to make *literal* magic (obvious if you look at her samples). For us, candid images were really important-- and the Captured Couture crew got some golden shots throughout the entire wedding day. Her second photographer and assistant were awesome, too :) We can't recommend her enough, she is super cool, down to earth, and really puts you at ease in front of the camera. We can't wait to work with her again!!

She was very quick while taking the photos, so that our guest were not waiting long. However,... Read More I am writing this review with 3 stars because I am disappointed in my photos. She gave us access to all of them to choose from, but there are so many that are not printable that it is frustrating. Many of them are not centered, blurry, cut off the grooms head or forehead, or have strange things in the background. She told us she would edit all of them for color and for blemishes, but there are some that you can see acne on my face. There is only one picture to choose from for a lot of important moments. There is only one of my dad and I walking down the aisle with both of our eyes open, and it is very far away. She was helpful when I sent some back to her to edit out strange things in the background or other editable things I was unhappy with. I understand not all of these are in her control, but it is very discouraging going through our photos and not having many or any that we are really excited about sharing and printing. Hopefully, you will only be getting married once, and this is all we have to remember our special day.

Granted it has only been two weeks since we got married, I have swooned over the moments that Jennifer was able to capture countless times already. Honestly, I don't think I'll ever tire of looking at our gorgeous wedding photos!! From the very start of working with Jennifer... Read More at Captured Couture, she was accommodating, professional, and organized to a T. She answered any question that crossed my mind promptly and always with a friendly nature. Her prices are incredibly competitive too, especially considering the high-quality work that she delivers. The day of our wedding went as smoothly as possible and I give a lot of that credit to Jennifer and her assistant, Stacy. They arrived at the hotel while the bridal party was getting prepped for detail shots & Jennifer pulled me aside to give me a calming pep talk. SO APPRECIATED!! Before, during, & after the ceremony - Jennifer remained calm & organized despite the chaos of huge families shuffling around for their turn at a photo. She is definitely not only a professional photographer, but also a professional at herding masses of people around. Jennifer managed to only miss one of the shots we wanted from the entire day. I consider that a complete win because there were A LOT of shots that we asked for. After the ceremony, we traveled to Ann Arbor to take additional photos (her brilliant idea). On the way, we got a flat tire in the party bus. Again, Jennifer stepped up & gave yet another calming pep talk, reassuring that the delay would cause no issues. And it didn't - because she is AWESOME and moved quickly and efficiently for the rest of our time in Ann Arbor. At the reception, she captured every moment and detail perfectly. The photos were given to us extremely fast too. We received a sneak peak (5 or 6 photos) within 48 hours and the remainder of our photos within 10 days!! Oh, and did I mention that she was even the one to bustle my dress for me because the bridal party didn't know how too? She cares so much about her clients and the work that she does. I would recommend booking with Captured Couture to anyone!
