Wow, where to begin… we were beyond impressed with everything Jeannine did for us. Not only is she an incredible photographer, she’s also down to earth, approachable and immediately makes everyone around her feel relaxed. This is the perfect ...
combination for a wedding photographer. We had met her and saw her in action at a few of our friend’s wedding’s, and knew before we were even engaged that she HAD to be our wedding photographer. We kept our priorities in order and made sure to book with her, even before we booked our venue!
It was obvious from the first time we met with her, that she was an absolute pro. Her years of experience showed immediately, when she went above and beyond her duties as a photographer. She recommended a few ceremony locations (we were still undecided at that point), and helped us pin down a realistic pre-ceremony timeline that ensured we got every photo we wanted, without ever feeling rushed or stressed during our big day. She also suggested adding a “photo race” to our reception, which neither of us had ever heard of before. It was a huge hit, and it allowed us to get a photo with every single person at the reception, which became a nice personal touch to our thank you notes. Beyond that, she worked with us to make sure we were able to find a photography package that fit within our budget.
On our wedding day, things couldn’t have gone any better, thanks in part to her excellent planning, and perfect execution of everything we had discussed. We had a large wedding party, 5 different pre-ceremony photo locations, family photos and a full group shot of everyone at the ceremony on the docket for the day, and Jeannine handled it all in stride. All while cracking jokes, keeping things on schedule and making sure everyone she was around was smiling and having a great time.
Working with her couldn’t have been easier. She handled everything from start to finish, and was incredibly responsive with answers to any questions that came up throughout the planning process. After the reception, she followed through right away with sending us a sneak peek of our photos, and we couldn’t believe how quickly we received the rest of the photos. Not to mention, she put together an impromptu slideshow at our reception, of photos she took earlier that day!
THE PHOTOS! After we looked through all 1,100 photos she sent us, we couldn’t believe how perfectly she captured the entire day. Picking which photos to print became a challenge, because of how many great options she gave us. She did a phenomenal job of telling the story of our wedding day through a mix of candid and posed moments, catching small details of the décor and food we chose, and most importantly, she made sure we were looking our best in the photos we’ll have on display for the rest of our lives.
We received a lot of compliments from friends and family on reception decor, and the doughnuts we served for dessert, but by far, our guests were most impressed with Jeannine. Throughout our entire wedding day, and to this day, people have continually told us how much fun she was to be around, how her passion for photography really shows, and that our photos are “unreal,” “gorgeous,” the “best wedding photos they’ve ever seen.” We couldn’t agree more.
If it’s not obvious by now, we highly recommend working with her, and will continue to use her for any photography needs.
Thanks for everything Jeannine, you’re truly a rock star!
