I LOVED HER INFECTIOUSLY FUN AND GOOFY PERSONALITY!
Jenae is a phenomenal photographer and person. I loved her infectiously fun and goofy personality from the first time I met her, and I had a gut feeling that would put me at ease and help me relax and enjoy my wedding day more with her there; and I was right. The day of the engagement shoot, storm clouds were rolling in and rain drops were coming down, but she pushed us - tracking the storm coverage on her phone, and getting in some great shots, taking advantage of the cool dark sky in the background w/o us getting soaked! Weather like that can bring me down, but she stayed upbeat and focused on the task at hand, making the most of it. Leading up to the wedding, Jenae was very on top of things - reaching out about the wedding day schedule, offering to put it together / modify it - she clearly has a lot of experience with weddings and how they should flow. There were a few moments of the day that I was feeling more stressed/nervous, and Jenae always kept her cool and made me feel more relaxed. She also helped with little things I had forgotten - like the lift tickets for the bridal party and photographers to go up the chairlift - so she dashed inside to get them for all of us. We had a bit of unfortunate weather (lightning!) on top of the mountain during the ceremony which caused us to put it on hold, and Jenae took advantage of that window of time to fit in as many portraits as possible, since we'd have less time later. She kept an eye on the storm pattern, and kept on documenting the day, staying her positive self. She adjusted well to the disrupted original schedule and managed to get so many great pictures in various locations. Jenae paid close attention to the little details and decorations, as well. All in all, she did an amazing job capturing the day; her images are high quality (posed and candid - she had a way of making us not feel so awkward with posing, btw!); and she was a pleasure to have there, making our wedding day better by being there (not to mention, several guests came up to me and reiterated how awesome she was, so I'm not the only one who thought so). I'd highly recommend her as a photographer for any important (or ordinary!) life event. Thank you, Jenae!!!

FROM START TO FINISH, YOU WERE THE CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL!
What can I say!? Look at these amazing pictures!! From start to finish, you were the consummate professional, as well as fun and so easy to work with! Thank you for all of your work, and for going above and beyond what you were expected to do. Your work is truly impeccable. Thank you!!

Jenae Lopez is absolutely amazing, hands down best photographer out there!
When we first met with Jenae to discuss the photo packages she was so awesome and worked with us to find something to fit our budget. She was so organized, professional and helped us along the way with all aspects of our wedding. She knows it all! At the wedding she was on top of everything and made the ceremony and reception flow perfectly. She made us feel comfortable and at ease, almost as if she wasn't even there. Looking back at the photos, she captured the entire day from start to finish beautifully and truly brought us back to that day. I can't believe how many photos she took and she seemed to be every where! There was not one picture that we didn't love. Her photos are quality, creative, artistic and truly amazing! We couldn't be happier with the outcome. It was the happiest day of my life and thanks to Jenae, we will have these beautiful pictures to remind us and to keep with us forever. Thanks Jenae!

OH MY GAWD!!
We received the album and canvas photo today! They are both breathtaking! We are beyond thrilled, Jenae thank you for all that you did to make our special day the best moment of our lives!! We will be able to relive that moment everyday with your beautiful work!!
We'll be calling you for maternity photos in the future!

All the little special moments we didn't even realize were captured until we looked over the pictures!
Jenae was an absolute pleasure to work with. My entire family is so impressed with the quality and pose ideas. She and her partner were willing to work with my husband and I on timing for pictures so we could actually enjoy our wedding day. It was great how they were on a mission during the ceremony so we didn't even know they were taking pictures. All the angles, all the little special moments we didn't even realize were captured until we looked over the pictures. She did a spectacular job and I would absolutely recommend Jenae Lopez to folks for wedding photography!
- Meaghan & Matt
They look fabulous!!
Many many compliments from us and our family and friends!! Thanks again for the wonderful photos and your flexibility and patience! I have a feeling our Office may be requiring a few more pictures for it's hallways and walls! ;)
Simply the best.
So many things about my wedding went wrong, the biggest being a last minute location change from Phoenix to Redondo Beach. Thank goodness for Jenae! She took the news of the last minute change in a stride, shifted some personal commitments she had, and showed up in California ready to go. No matter what happened with everything else, it was comforting to know that our wedding photos were in Jenae's able hands. From the beginning, Jenae was a true professional and completely receptive to my vision for my wedding (and my lack of decisiveness, which could not have made her job easy). She handled all of the bumps in the road with grace and delivered like an artist... a true professional. And the photos! I couldn't be more pleased. Sure, we got all of the "traditional" family photos (anyone can do that), but we got so much more. Jenae captured every single subtle detail of my wedding while also capturing my family and friends at their most authentic. I couldn't be more pleased with the result - amazing photos of the people I love most in the world (our wedding was small) that I will treasure for the rest of my life.Our positive experience with Jenae continued after the wedding ended (after all, showing up is only half the job). It was important to me that the turnaround on my photos be timely. Again, Jenae exceeded my expectations. Jenae was a joy to work with from beginning to end - smart, organized, talented, and reliable.

There were so many amazing photos and I felt like the day and night were perfectly captured.
Jenae first wow-ed my husband and I during our engagement session at Red Rocks. I knew Kevin would not want to take pictures for hours, and Jenae jumped in and got the shoot done in 45 minutes and we couldn't have been happier with the results. She took us all over the area, knew when to get the best light and we wound up with an incredible variety to choose from - all of which we felt looked very natural, very "us." We even used them in our wedding invitations. After the engagement shoot success I was even more excited to see wedding photos. Again, Jenae worked with us on what we wanted, who we wanted to make sure we got in shots, as well as some we wouldn't have thought of that wound up being our favorites... and even got us to our cocktail hour to enjoy part of - something we didn't think we would be able to do. She also was about to leave when my husband and his best friends got together and danced, and she turned right around to make sure she captured the moment, which was awesome - those pictures are some of our favorites because they told the whole story of the night. Needless to say - the wedding photos turned out incredible. After the wedding Jenae quickly got photos to us (including a couple teasers along the way to give us a peek). There were so many amazing photos and I felt like the day and night were perfectly captured. Even guests we didn't explicitly say to get photos of were included, I think I could find something for everyone. I could go on, but seriously - meet Jenae for a coffee (or beer) and chat with her about your wedding photos. You won't regret it!

WOW, we are so amazed by how much emotion and memories she captured!
My husband and I got to see our "day in the life" family photos tonight captured by Jenae Lopez and WOW, we are so amazed by how much emotion and memories she captured! We haven't been this excited to see pictures since our wedding pictures! We LOVE them!! Thank you sooo much Jenae, you truly are talented, I can not wait to get a book made of all my favorite ones.
And the photos........ ohhhh the photos! Her shots are simply breath taking. This woman has amazing talents!
My partner and I interviewed multiple photographers and had several horrible experiences. We were so disappointed by some of the portfolios we were seeing that we were at the point that we were seriously considering just having a family member take photos... then a friend recommended Jenae. We met for our consultation and it INSTANTLY felt like we had known her for years. She made us feel completely at ease as a same-sex couple. We decided on a package that included an engagement shoot and we had SOOOO much fun. She was creative and playful and the shots that she took had us so excited for the wedding. We got married at a venue that was new and was supposed to be completed last year. We had set up a walk through tour with all of our vendors for a date when the building should have been completed. When we all showed up- there were no walls or doors! Needless to say we were two upset brides but Jenae was so positive and calming and just said it was going to be a beautiful venue. Come wedding time- she quickly became the calming force in the craziness that is a wedding! They worked the whole event in such a professional and fun manner. They moved us through the group photos with ease and had us all laughing. So many of our guests commented on how incredibly fun they were. And the photos........ ohhhh the photos! Her shots are simply breath taking. This woman has amazing talents! Everyone who has seen our photos has just been blown away. You simply cannot go wrong with Jenae- book her early because soon your date will be taken by someone else! We will be forever Jenae Lopez Photography clients. And, if you look at her portfolio and blog, you can see that many, many of her clients have had Jenae photograph their engagement, wedding, newborn, and family photos. Once you see her work and meet her, she will become the life-long archiver of your family life.

I had no idea you took so many pictures. It will be great to have the ones in and around our house, so we can really remember the things they liked! Thank you so much for these memories!!
She has an amazing eye and talent as a photographer and you will not be disappointed with the results.
Jenae was our engagement and wedding photographer and I could have not asked for anyone better! Jenae was very professional and fun at the same time, she is reasonably priced with many options to select from for engagement and wedding photos. She has an amazing eye and talent as a photographer and you will not be disappointed with the results. I was skeptical with what the outcome of our engagement session photos would look like, I am sure we picked the worst weather possible with an extremely windy day, but once we got our photos back, you would have had no idea how bad the wind was. We had plenty of great photos to choose from.Jenae was able to capture every moment of our wedding perfectly and we are so happy we chose her for our big day! We had a long list of large family photos and she was quick to gather everyone and capture great family photos.I highly recommend Jenae for anyone looking for a photographer, you will not be disappointed!

She's fun, quirky, creative and downright awesome and we can't wait to use her for all our future photography needs!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars because Jenae deserves it! Her work, her attitude, the whole entire experience was truly better than we ever could have imagined and are so thankful we used her for our wedding and engagement photography. She's fun, quirky, creative and downright awesome and we can't wait to use her for all our future photography needs!! Thank you so much!!

Every photo was amazing, it was hard to choose which ones to print.
Jenae did an amazing job with our little girl's newborn pictures. She was very gentle and patient with our little one, and was very considerate of her needs and making sure she was safe and comfortable. Jenae has an amazing talent of creating and capturing beautiful, picturesque poses. Every photo was amazing, it was hard to choose which ones to print. I would recommend Jenae to family and friends to capture any special moments in their lives. Thank you Jenae!
We are so thrilled we chose to go with Jenae and would recommend her to anyone!
Jenae was just a spectacular photographer for our wedding day. I had researched approximately 40 photographers (yes, overkill) knowing that the photos were really important to my husband and myself. Jenae was just like talking to a friend every time we spoke and was beyond accommodating of all of our requests big and small. We got comments throughout the night and following days that Jenae and her assistant were the hardest working people at our wedding - so true! - as they really did everything in their power to get truly fantastic shots that we are thrilled about having for years to come. In our communications, Jenae was quick to respond with clear answers and always available by phone or email, especially during the last week before the event, which was helpful to me as I did not have a planner. Lastly, we were very aware of our budget and Jenae's prices were totally reasonable yet she was happy to work with us to figure out the best way to get what we wanted and knock out some extras so we could meet our budget (something others were not so much willing to do!). On top of our wedding photos, we also did our engagement photots with Jenae and were really happy with how they turned out. It was a great way to get to know her and her working style better and our wedding day went much smoother because of it. We are so thrilled we chose to go with Jenae and would recommend her to anyone!

ERMAHGERD!!!! Thank you a million times over! You are phenomenal and amazing and I swear you are a ninja because you were jumping thru bushes and in so many places at once I didn't even see you get from one place to the other! The photos are SO amazing, I can't wait to share them with our families! You truly are amazing and we appreciate everything you did from showing up early, staying late, getting Tayler water during the ceremony and just for being awesome! Thank you!!

I don't think of Jenae as a wedding photographer, I now consider her a friend and will call her anytime we have life moment to document.
Jenae was truly a pleasure to work with from day one. Photos are a huge part of a wedding and become your memories, so it's a bit daunting to put that in the hands of someone you've never met. She made me feel comfortable over the phone and email to start the process with our engagement shoot. My worries completely vanished the moment I met her, she was calm, relaxed and completely understood my vision. Somehow she created exactly what I wanted despite the fact that it was snowing, we were running out of daylight and I had to do an outfit change at a gas station. From the photos you'd think it was a beautiful day and we were just casually strolling in the woods. I was completely confident once our wedding day arrived and she went above and beyond to get the pre- ceremony shots, even climbing a rock face to get the group from above! I didn't even notice her and her assistant were there during the ceremony, yet there are a million beautiful pictures. She continued shooting through the reception and captured all the big moments as well as reactions of our guests. We couldn't be happier with our photos and experience with Jenae. She captured the feeling I wanted with a soft journalistic style and provided candid shots from the entire day as well as the classics you expect. We are left with a full story of how the day was for everyone there and will look back on it for years to come. I don't think of Jenae as a wedding photographer, I now consider her a friend and will call her anytime we have life moment to document.
