Mr + Mrs Ryan Buckman | WEDDINGS
When I got engaged in October 2013, I knew immediately Jeni had to be a part of our day. I’ve followed her blog and have seen her work, and her photos always made me giddy. The way she had captured her past brides only added to my excitement to have her there on our big day. Every girl dreams of being a beautiful bride and having pictures to tell the story years down the road.
On top of booking Jeni for our wedding day, we also had two small engagement shoots. She completely nailed both looks we were going for, so I knew our wedding day would be nothing different.
In September 2014, on our wedding day, Jeni was on time, patient, creative, and felt like a part of the family as she spent the whole day with us capturing each small moment and putting heart and creativity into each shot she took. As a bride, the day flew by and I’m so lucky to have such meaningful, important photos to look back on to recreate the day and memories as we create our life as husband and wife.
After four months, I can’t even count the number of times Ryan and I have looked at our photos and decisively tried to make decisions about which ones we love best. There is a photo of our first look where Ryan has a grasp on my back that I can almost feel as I look at the picture. It’s definitely something I will cherish forever. Jeni made all my wedding photo dreams come true, was easy to work with, and for that, we are forever grateful.
The Duensing Family | NEWBORN & FAMILIES
We love having Jeni take our family photos. I treasure all the photos that she has taken of our family, our daughter, and then recently our newborn son. She is wonderful and patient with kids (and dogs!) and so loving and maternal with newborns.
I get compliments on our photos all the time and feel that she is quite reasonable in price. Her passion for photography shines through in her photos. Thanks Jeni for capturing such priceless images of my family!
The Williams Family | CHILDREN & FAMILIES
Jeni did my son’s 6 month photos and one year photos. Taking pictures with an infant/toddler can be a challenge, but Jeni was patient and understanding the entire time. At my son’s 6-month shoot, he would smile really easily when I sang the song “You Are My Sunshine”. But when we needed to get some family pictures taken, I wasn’t available to sing it to him. Jeni was a stranger to him so he wouldn’t smile as easily for her as he did for my husband and I. But Jeni quickly caught on that singing was the way to his smiles and started singing to him for each shoot. It worked like a charm! At his one year shoot, he was VERY active and on the move. She had her hands full trying to keep him still AND smiling for each picture. Despite his constant movements, she was able to capture some great memories for us that I will cherish always. We are currently expecting our 2nd child and I’m confident these next set of family pictures will turn out fantastic with Jeni.
The Boden Family | NEWBORN, CHILDREN & FAMILIES
Words cannot express how amazingly talented Jeni is. She has been taking our family pictures since our oldest child’s birth 5 years ago. It is such a blessing to have a photographer who has watched our family grow over the years and capture each season of our lives. She allows our family to be ourselves and makes us all feel comfortable in front of the camera.
Her ability to capture our natural personalities and family dynamic, especially with young children, always results in photos that are nothing short of amazing.
The Grutter Family | NEWBORN, CHILDREN & FAMILIES
All of the photos Jeni takes show true depth and connection. She makes the process natural and relaxing and makes all of our sessions truly memorable. She has a way of capturing all of our personalities perfectly.
All of the photos Jeni has taken of my family, I will cherish for the rest of my life.
Thank you, Jeni, for blessing us.
The DeWet Family | FAMILIES
Jeni is an amazing photographer with an extraordinary attention to detail. She is great with kids and her photos always turn out terrific. We have used her on several occasions and have always been impressed with our photos.
We have received many compliments on her work, and she has captured such beautiful moments with my family. My only issue is I need to find more wall space in my house to display her talent!
The Barker Family | NEWBORN, CHILDREN & FAMILIES
Jeni has been taking pictures of my family since my first son was a few days old. She has always done a great job of capturing our family. As a new mom, I even feel like she caught me in flattering pictures, days postpartum! That’s a talent!
I have loved the candid photos she has taken of our family. Jeni has a great working relationship with our kids, probably due to her school counseling background.
I cannot say enough good things. She has a great eye and produces beautiful pictures.
