About this Vendor


Congratulations on your engagement. I would love to hear about your unique story and what lead you to each other. I love getting to know each couple and really having a personal relationship. I truly feel that knowing a couple’s relationship details from the first kiss, first date, who cooked the first dinner, who popped the question and honeymoon ideas will allow me to connect with them leading up to their wedding day. I am here to document your story in a way that fits the two of you. Let me help you in capturing all of the celebratory moments of your special day. It’s a period of your life that is unforgettable but also a time that can be quite stressful if you don’t have the right photographer to walk you through the process.

We booked JD Photography for our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. In both interactions with Marlene we we extremely pleased with the caring and professional attitude she portrayed. She did not force pictures we didn't want and asked our input and style that we had... Read More in mind. Marlene knows how to get you to feel comfortable while taking all pictures, including those awkward "make out" pictures. Marlene really cares about her customers and wants you to have the best picture possible, not just rush your pictures to finish up. We had a lot of fun during both of our events and would recommend her to anyone. If you want to feel completely cared for and work with a true people person than you must book with JD Photography. She will go above and beyond to ensure you get everything you want and the pictures come out stunning!

Seriously ... if you need to book a photographer you need to book Marlene. Her professionalism but also her playfulness makes you feel so comfortable (as if you'd known her for years). The quality of the pictures are outstanding and she definitely captures all the little... Read More moments even when you think she isn't watching. If someone isn't cooperative or "doesn't like taking pictures" she makes them love it. Overall I couldn't ask for a better photographer, as I also now consider her my friend.

I can not put into words how happy i am with my pictures!!!!!!!!! I was referred to JD Photography by a friend, and i am so thankful i booked her right away!!! Marlene made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We met first to do an engagement/family shoot which was... Read More part of my package. We laughed so hard and had so much fun!!!!!! She made me look so skinny and more beautiful then ever in the pictures. I didn't feel awkward at all. She literally made me feel like a model. My 2 year old is easily distracted, but she captured the biggest and best smiles from him. The wedding shots are OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING. Everyone has told me the pictures look like they are straight out of a bridal magazine! I couldn't be more thrilled with the results!!!!! Beyond what i could have ever imagined or dreamed!!!! I am so grateful to have these memories for the rest of my life. She captured perfect moments of the mother/son dance, and of the father/daughter dance. Everyone loves the photos from that day. Even when some of the older family members are gone i will have the best pictures of them because of her. Do yourself a favor and book her now!!!!!!! U will not regret it!!!!!!

I was a bride almost thirteen years ago and it was one of the best days of my life. I did not realize how important a role my photographer had at that time to capture every moment. The pictures with my husband, family, bridal party, and friends will be forever cherished. Each wonderful moment was illustrated in each photograph as we enjoyed ourselves on that hot summer day. Let me be your photographer on your special day as I can't wait to capture your memorable moments.
