We are so happy that we chose Jenny, Jenna, and her team to photograph our wedding day! Jenny was extremely warm and flexible navigating the rescheduling of our wedding because of COVID. From the time we met her in person for planning over coff...
ee to her clear and quick email communication to the day of our wedding, Jenny and her team made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We barely felt the presence of photography at the wedding, as it all felt very natural. Jenny crafted that experience and we’re so grateful!
Our pictures are stunning if I do say so myself ;) But it’s all credited to Jenny & team! We received the photos on a well-organized online link that was easy to share with family and friends. I love the mix of more formal family photos, romantic couple photos, candid wedding party memories, and fun reception photos that capture the joyous feelings of dancing with guests. I would highly recommend Jenny & team to any close friend or family member.

To start with the most important bit: we love our wedding photos! One of our primary goals was to get photos that looked natural and candid, and that's exactly what Jenny and her team delivered. The cameras were constantly snapping, capturing t...
he different moments throughout the day, and we're very happy with the final set of edited photos that we got. Prior to the wedding day, Jenny made sure to clear up some logistics with formal photos of family and friends, but besides that all of the magic happened on the day of. Her team came early and even stayed a little past their contracted time just to make sure to capture some of those moments as everyone was dancing into the night, hanging out, and just generally having a good time during the reception. We would definitely choose to work with Jenny and her team if we had to do it all again, and we would also recommend them to family and friends!

Where do we even begin with Jenny + her team...they are truly phenomenal! My (now) husband and I first met Jenny and Melanie at our engagement shoot at Griffith Observatory. After being in lockdown for so long, we were so excited to meet them +...
finally shoot our engagement photos. We instantly clicked. Both Jenny and Mel are incredible at what they do. They are beyond creative in their shots, they make you feel comfortable, but most of all they keep it so fun + lighthearted. After the few hours we spent with them on that day both Samir and I were so ecstatic for our wedding week to arrive!
Our wedding week with Jenny + her team is filled with so many incredible memories. Jenny + her entire team spent the entire week with us shooting our week long Hindu wedding events. It was so so fun to see how each individual on their team has a unique vision. The moments where we would get pulled for a few couple shots with their team were probably some of the best moments for us. Within this time, they always made us feel like we could just take a breather from being around so many people. They continuously made us feel at peace, comfortable, god the amount of laughter when we were all together I can't even put to words!! Not posing us too much but just letting us be in the moment and going with the natural movements. This truly made us feel so happy because these moments are some that we will remember forever, just moments to ourselves but at the same time they were being captured in the most beautiful way.
I remember emailing Jenny to see if she could recreate some photos for me on my wedding morning. I sent her photos of my mom from her wedding back in India and my grandmother's photos of her wedding as well. My grandmother had passed a few months before my wedding so when Jenny jumped at the opportunity to recreate these moments for me, it truly made me so happy.
To sum it up -- the Jenny Smith + Co Team is truly the most talented photography team I have ever met. Some of our wedding event and engagement photos seem like they are straight out of Vogue! They are the kindest, most fun, and insanely talented team - if you're not hiring them for your wedding you are truly missing out!!!! Even our families fell in love with them! Thank you for capturing some of the most beautiful moments in our lives.

WOW is all I have to say about Jenny. When we had to cancel our original plans and have a micro wedding during covid, Jenny was so accommodating. We had a zoom meeting where we discussed what we were looking for before the big day. Jenny exceed...

If only we had enough walls in our house to print every picture she took - there was not one bad or wasted shot.

We just received our wedding photos and let me just say we, as the couple, are BLOWN AWAY!!!! Our photos are amazing. The quality on these photos are astonishing. The way how they took photos of the wedding details are awesome. I didn't have to...
mention any of these things and I was a little worried, but they got all the shots that I was looking for. Jenny is so easy going as a photographer. She was so easy to get along with. My husband and I had our engagement shoot in Joshua Tree with Jenny as the main photographer and Melanie as the second photographer. They both made it so easy to take photos and they take candid photos that come out great. They put into thought about everything in their surroundings when it comes to the picture. We had fun at our engagement session.
Our wedding day is here and it was very easy to get things rolling as they knew exactly what to do and what to take pictures of. They already have asked us a list about what photos we would want and I thought this meant for family photos only so I just gave them a list of what photos we want with family members which they had on hand so when it was time to do photos it was easy to gather people. My tip to other brides is remember if you want pictures of you and your spouse in the detail shots remember to put those in as well. I got some but not all as I did not think about this before hand. Even with that said, I am still VERY VERY HAPPY with our photos from the engagement and wedding sessions. I couldn't have asked for better photographers because this was my hardest vendor to pick when it came to photography. This is the one vendor that will last from your wedding as this is what you want to spend your money in to cherish these moments, but also not break your bank account. They are affordable and I was referred to them by my wedding planner and it was the best referral ever! When it comes to choosing a photographer, I am no expert and what style I want. I see a picture and if I think its nice, it's nice. I had to ask my friend who is a photographer (not for weddings) but know what she is doing and talking about. Out of the 10-15 photographers I sent her, she said Jenny was the best out of all of them. Now mind you this ranged from affordable pricing to extravagant pricing. My friend knows how to edit as well and she said Jenny's was the best. I trusted my friends opinion as we have been friends since junior high school and she was at the wedding!
Everyone that I have shown our pictures to has said that our photos are astonishing! I am so happy to have chosen you Jenny and Melanie! Thank you for all your hard work, efficiency, responsiveness, and keeping with the timeline. Chris and I are truly blessed to have these photos forever!

My husband is very picky with photos, we wanted someone to take risks and have fun. We wanted a photographer to capture our moments as they occur, naturally, not a series of staged photos that are unnatural and look awkward when viewing them. We researched many photographers but, when we looked at Jenny’s work we immediately knew we she was the one. Her team was so kind, talented, artistic, spontaneous and knowledgeable. They took special care to take pictures of all the details that I missed and forgot to ask on my special day. I remembered I was busy getting ready and I saw Jenny picking up my shoes to take pictures of them outside.

I loved Melanie's creativeness with photos, they were never cheesy and she always made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera (which is an odd feeling initially). She was personable, funny and very calm the day of my wedding. She and her assistant Ali (perhaps I spelled that wrong, sorry!) were really sweet and kind and definitely helped take my mind off some of my anxiousness. They were really sly around the ceremony and reception and caught a lot of shots I was surprised to see.
They captured nearly everything I needed and were all very professional in all correspondences. I appreciate Jenny and Melanie's attentiveness to emails and their suggestions for venues (for the wedding itself as well as the engagement shoot)
Part of my photo package was a guest book and it is so beautiful. It has a leather cover (you can chose from other materials and many colors) and has our name and wedding date etched into it. It's really beautifully done.
