Jennifer was a WONDERFUL wedding photographer. During the planning process, she was helpful, patient, and available. During our wedding day, both my husband and I found her, and her assistant, to be really easy to work with. Our wedding took place in a redwood grove with ever-changing light and shadow. Jennifer has a great eye for finding the light and the beautiful picture. We love the artistic shots, but even more so, we really love how great the pictures of the moments came out. The unstaged photos, the reaction shots, the dance floor pics, and even the random dog running through the reception. Jennifer caught it all. We are SO happy with how everything turned out.
OMG! We cried, we cried and cried when we saw the pictures! We laughed and cried it was a whole thing.
Jennifer shot my engagement and wedding pictures and my husband and I could not be happier! Every shot came out beautiful and so many of our friends and family commented on how amazing the pictures turned out.
Before our wedding she spoke with us multiple times to make sure we were all on the same page, so we would get the exact pictures that we wanted. She even gave suggestions for ideas of pictures we wouldn’t have thought of on our own.
Jennifer and her assistant Jeff were very professional and easy to deal with during the entire process. They were also very honest and showed integrity in all aspects of our dealings. I knew exactly what I was getting and for what cost; there were no hidden fees or tricks.
If I could give 10 stars I would! You NEED to hire Jennifer at A Girl and A Camera Photography for all of your photography needs. You won’t regret it!
Jennifer was recommended to us, and being that our destination wedding was coming up quickly, we decided to stop looking and put our trust in her. I felt good about the decision, because she really took the time to get to know me (over phone calls), and hear our story before showing up to photograph us. Her online portfolio was evidence of talent, also.
The day of our wedding, Jennifer and Jeff arrived on time and were extremely professional. They were fun and easy to have around, but didn’t intrude whatsoever; they let our day unfold. At the moment of our outdoor ceremony, the weather turned dramatically cloudy and chilly, and I was covered with goosebumps, but Jennifer was determined to get great photos. She encouraged us and led us through the portrait process in such an efficient way (I was dying to get indoors) that I presumed it was too brief– that we wouldn’t have very many shots. I was so wrong. When I saw our proofs online, I was nothing short of amazed. Not only did our portraits look fantastic, but the dramatic sky was captured beautifully too. There were no cheesy poses. It all looked natural but gorgeous. And– I don’t know how she does this– she was so tuned into our emotions and the relationships that day… she captured subtleties like the look on my aunt’s face when she first saw me in my wedding gown (a big deal, because we’re very close and she had been waiting for that fateful moment for years…) Jennifer seemed to know exactly where to look to photograph what mattered. I am still…just… amazed. My husband and I want to frame just about everything. The slideshow actually brought me to happy tears, as I relived my wedding. They really told a story, in the most finessed and artistic way, which was also dynamic and charged without being cliched or obvious.
That’s just MY opinion. What’s also noteworthy is that people have been calling, messaging, and emailing me that they are blown away by our wedding photos. One of my friends called me on the way to work today to tell me she can’t believe how great they turned out. I keep hearing “your photographer really nailed it.” And the word “amazing” is getting thrown around a lot. Jennifer and Jeff, thank you SO much. It would be crazy to pick any photographers other than you guys, if in the area…
We used Jennifer for both our engagement photos, as well as for our wedding, and had a fantastic experience both times!
Jennifer and her assistant Jeff are super easy going and really great to work with.
They worked so well with everyone (adults, elderly, children) offering a little helpful direction here and there as well. They were also super stealth when they needed to be. In fact, after seeing the photos from the wedding, my mom commented; “They got so many amazing moments, and I didn’t even realize they were around or taking photos!”
The best part is that the resulting images are fabulous! We have so many great photos (both posed and candid) that we are challenged to figure out how to display them all. Such a great problem to have! Plus the final package came wrapped in a beautiful box showcasing Jennifer’s wonderful style and included some great personal touches.
We loved the entire experience, and highly recommend A Girl and a Camera!!
Jennifer is AMAZING. She has such a natural eye for photography and is so beyond talented at what she does. We hired her for our wedding in November, and while she still gave us control of what we wanted, she was able to lead us in a direction that produced beautiful images that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. My husband and I are not people who know what to do in front of a camera AT ALL, but she made portraits so easy and comfortable. She knows what works and she’s so good at using lighting and other elements to produce the perfect photos. Her assistant was great, too! On top of that, we received the watermarked images within three weeks and had the USB in our hands less than a month after the wedding (which by the way, the way she packages the USB is such a fun surprise – there are pictures of the box someone else posted on here)! We couldn’t be more thrilled with the final product!
We are so beyond happy we chose Jennifer to capture one of the biggest days of our lives and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer.
Seriously Jennifer is the absolute best! She did my sister’s engagement and wedding photos, we loved them so much we hired her for ours the following year.
We were venue clueless for the engagement photos, and are not ones that are big into schmaltz and cheese (husband hates having photos taken and if you hand him a prop of any kind you’re asking for trouble), and Jennifer was so accommodating! She found the perfect venue and was so patient with us – we got some great shots.
Our wedding photos were amazing! We loved every single one of them and its completely because of what a great job Jennifer did. She got excellent lighting and was able to steal some great action shots of the party. We have the best memories of that day now and I love looking back at them.
We’ve definitely found our photographer, and I can’t wait to use Jennifer through the years from now on.
Jennifer and Jeff are amazingly talented photographers and stand out above the rest. My husband and I booked A Girl and a Camera Photography for our wedding this past March because we wanted creative, QUALITY documentation of our wedding day. We got all that and more! We started with an engagement session in Golden Gate Park! Wow…such gorgeous shots we got out of that shoot! We ended up framing 6 of the many fantastic shots for our Wedding Day Welcome table. These two caught so many special moments of our short ceremony and reception (the whole thing was around 4 hours), it seemed like it was a 2-day long event when we looked at the images! I love that there are two of them shooting. Pre-wedding, Jennifer covered what was happening with me and Jeff covered what was happening with my man. They also were both shooting exteriors of our beautiful venue (Stern Grove in SF) before, after and during. They are both true artists and their styles work well together. They were both hustling and enhanced our whole experience (and post-experience because now we have the best images to look at and cherish!). I grew up around wedding photography, as that was one of my father’s professions, AND I’m a fan of photography in general, with very picky taste. A Girl and a Camera Photography filled every expectation and more! They are priced fairly and really………can you put a price on quality documentation of such a precious day?! I highly recommend this team!!
Jennifer and her team was AH-mazing! Of course, I already knew Jen’s talent when I started to follow her on Instagram. I’m very picky when it comes to photography so when our wedding came around, I knew it had to be her to capture our precious moments! Her work was phenomenal, especially the way she captured all the emotions on every picture she took, including the portraits. My mom was skeptical until she saw the pictures, she kept raving about the pictures and kept showing the pictures to everyone she knows (haha). She was not only an amazing “technical” photographer in terms of capturing shots, she was also very good at directing us about where/how to pose, especially when we were overwhelmed with everything else. Believe me, on that day you wouldn’t be able to think of anything else but to try and enjoy each moment. Jennifer was so helpful in keeping things organized and efficient (and sane). We’d definitely have her for our future photo shoots as well!
We’ve viewed all the pictures, they’re EXCELLENT! Thanks so much, you made our un-photogenic selves look great, and it almost looks like we had the place entirely to ourselves.
Thank you again for the great photos (and being our witness!).
We hired Jennifer for our wedding in September and could not possibly have been more satisfied with the process or the results, which speak for themselves. The wife type and I are both semi-shy weirdos who are not particularly fond of having our pictures taken, but both she and her assistant Jeff were able to coax some really beautiful photos out of even our lame selves.Great posed shots, amazing candid shots, and really the perfect job of capturing the energy of the total lunacy that was our reception. Not only that, but Jennifer had all of our pictures up on her site in about a week and a half! We had a great time poring through them the minute we got back from our honeymoon. A+++ on all fronts.
Bonus gratitude to Jennifer for pointing out to us the wedding crasher who was drinking out of wifey’s engraved crystal champagne flute at the time. Good looking out (if only everyone could have the chance to throw someone out of their wedding, it’s great fun).
We loved Jennifer’s aesthetic (emotionally-charged and artful) and pretty much told her that we trusted her to just do her thing! We could not be more pleased with the results. Her and her assistant captured every moment we could possibly want and more, and did so beautifully. No time was wasted and we barely noticed they were there! On top of that, the turnaround was quick — 9 days only (most of our friends didn’t get their photos for 2-3 months!). I (bride) HATE taking photos, and I told Jennifer that when we met her — she told me not to worry, and directed us easily for our photos and I absolutely loved her for it. We had several professional photographers at our wedding that told us that we made an excellent choice in choosing Jennifer, not only because of her professionalism, but because of her skill, eye, and work ethic. We could not agree more. A few friends were envious that we had “so many perfect shots” since they only had a few to choose from. We highly recommend her to the fullest and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again. You’re the best, Jen!!!!
We used A Girl and A Camera Photography for both our engagement session and wedding day and could not be happier with the results of both shoots. Jen and her assistant Jeff captured every single moment of the day without being intrusive or pushy. They made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and really captured the essence of our wedding day.
We experienced some unexpected rain prior to the ceremony. They rolled with the punches and were unphased by the change in events and altered timeline. We have many shots that are priceless and could not be more thankful that they were captured on film. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos and being so easy to work with. I highly recommend A Girl and A Camera for all of your photography needs and cannot wait to work with her again in the future.
A Girl and A Camera Photography and Jennifer are amazing! She was our photographer for both our engagement session and wedding day. She’s very easy to communicate with and responds in a timely manner via email and text and is a joy to work with in person. She had location suggestions for the engagement photos and also recommended how we approach each shot, making it easy for someone going through their first professional photo shoot. On the wedding day, she did a great job of capturing every moment while also still staying in the background. The sample photos you see here aren’t just a few of her photos that turned out great – all of our wedding photos turned out this great and we now have an extremely large collection of photos we love! Her ability to capture the moment, the perfect lighting/background and also edit with her signature style make her the best. I highly recommend A Girl and A Camera Photography and Jennifer for any professional photos!
My now husband and I used Jennifer as our wedding and engagement photographer and I can honestly say there was not a bad photo. She did an amazing job at capturing the moment for us and got details of the day that we would be clueless of, if there wasn’t a picture of it. Literally we had flowers and details that we overlooked on the big day and I am so happy she caught it for us. Jen did an amazing job on our engagement photos my husband is half Korean and it was important to his mom that we take traditional Korean wedding dress photos. Jen picked out the perfect site and the photos turned out great and she took photos of us normally dressed at the beach. For the actual wedding day she was great every bride will be nervous and she helped claim the nerves a little and even was laughing with us when we were talking about poop. Everyone is asking who was your photographer the photos are great. Jen even gave me the name and number to our great florist/wedding planner.
Jennifer & team KILLED IT at our wedding. Not only are our photos the best we could imagine, but the true testament to a great event photographer is we didn’t even notice they were there. The photos captured the feeling of the wedding at every stage and looked like they were right in the middle of the action. Perfectly edited, amazing style and super nice and professional while being laid back, we can’t recommend A Girl and A Camera photography highly enough!
We’ve already booked Jennifer for more shoots.
Simply the best!
I have done several shoots with Jennifer and she is a true artist. She definitely has that “eye” that is required for amazing photography. She has a vision and knows exactly how to execute it. Her photos always turns out beautiful! She loves what she does and that comes through both during the shoot and afterward. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and completely at ease when you’re in front of the camera. I would HIGHLY recommend her for any engagement shoot, wedding, new baby, family portrait or anything else you might need a photographer for. She’s amazing!!
Working with Jennifer was quite a pleasure and really easy. All of my emails, and phone appointments were a breeze! Communication prior to the wedding with Jennifer was thorough and effortless!
Jennifer and her partner showed up right on time and got right to work capturing every single requested item and then some! She was eager and excited to accommodate any spontaneous photo idea I came up with, which made the getting ready part that much more fun and took a lot of the edge off! Jennifer was a rock star to work with! You know you are in good hands when your photographer goes beyond the visual details to include the sounds as well. So many gold stars to A Girl and A Camera Photography!! Highly recommend, a true artist and professional!
These photos make me cry!! They are so beautiful and special. Thank you thank you thank you for enduring the rain with us!!
We are speechless. I guess you know when photos are truly special is when they make you cry. Unbelievably gorgeous! Beyond my expectations and then some. You captured every single moment of the day perfectly. You were born to be a photographer. You have an amazing talent. I could go on and on. I hope you know how good you are. You captured how happy he is. One of the most important things for us was to have amazing photos–to last a lifetime. Memories to have forever. So important during this time in our lives. More special I think than most people who get married.
Brilliantly, beautifully done Jennifer!!
