"Jen is not only an incredible and comforting photographer, but a great joy to be around and to get to know! We were so lucky she could work with us. I'm completely uncomfortable in front of a camera and she put both my husband and I at ease first during our engagement photos and then at our wedding. I could not be more grateful for her time and for the beautiful moments and pictures that she captured, we will cherish those forever. We were blown away and I could not recommend her more!"
"Jen is the definition of professional! She came in, made me feel like a princess, coached me in poses that were perfect for me, and was an absolute sweetheart. She captured every moment, every detail with such ease and elegance. My favorite part was that during our first look, I nearly forgot she was there, but looking back on those pictures, she was exactly where she needed to be to catch every look. She is an exceptional photographer with the sweetest presence. I am so thankful that she played such a key role in executing a 'picture' perfect wedding! Thank you, Jen! You are one in a million!"
"I cannot say enough great things about Jen Symes! Not only is she an amazing photographer and editor, but she made sure I felt confident and calm throughout our wedding day.
Her editing style is very bright and clean, and timeless. She worked so hard on the day of our wedding, and after to make sure our photos were perfect. We received our online wedding gallery in less than a week! THAT IS UNHEARD OF - in the best way possible. All of the photos are breathtakingly beautiful, and we will cherish these memories forever. "
"Jen is the best decision I made for my wedding. Jen photographed my engagement photos, boudoir, bridal, and wedding over the past year. Jen suggested stunning locations that followed my theme and vision for each shoot! She took time to make my husband and I feel comfortable, and she captured each moment beautifully. Jen has a unique artistry that is romantic, classic, and approachable. I knew she would be a perfect fit when I every photo in her gallery was my favorite. And, Jen was amazing to work with through the pandemic/wedding planning process. Jen was flexible, empathetic, and answered my every worry filled email or text with kind guidance. The photos were simply stunning. All of our family were impressed, and I can't wait to hang our photos for us to admire over our lifetime. I will never work with another photographer for any event, she will always be my first call and my only recommendation for a wedding photographer."

I just wanted to say thank you again for taking such wonderful photos on our wedding day. My mother passed away in October, and your photos are the last I have of her and so extra special for that reason.
You captured so many great moments of her and I am thankful that I will be able to look back on that last weekend spent with her and see such beautiful memories.
The second we met with Jen, she had such an inviting energy which made it really easy for me to connect and be vulnerable towards her. Which made the photo shoot incredibly easy for my fiance (now husband) and I to be ourselves and comfortable. This was great because she was able to capture our personalities and timeless photos.
I felt so special throughout this entire process and she took care of me so well during the shoot (helped me fix my hair, shirt, placement of my hands, dress, etc. ). She was so detail oriented and was able to capture specific shots that I wanted.
Leading up to the wedding, she was incredibly flexible. On top of the pandemic, there were a lot of other changes. She was very communicative and listened to my questions/issues that I had come across and given her expertise and years of experience, she was able to help me find solutions (I was incredibly thankful for since I didn't have a wedding planner).
Her artistry was so timeless. It wasn't too edited and the colors of the items/scenery spoke for itself. On the wedding day, I honestly didn't even notice her most of the time. I've been in weddings where the photographers are in the guests' line of view, distracting, etc. but Jen and her assistant were on the down low and very respectful and the pictures still turned out amazing! They just knew where all the right angles were... So thankful for them.
I cannot imagine working with another photographer. If I come across any special events, Jen will be the first one I call!
