Amy McLandress · Married on 17 of August of 2019
We were so thrilled with Jen, both for our engagement shoot and wedding. She's super chill, but also incredibly professional and talented. Her way of putting everyone at ease made for so many amazing shots.Sent on 22/09/2019
For our engagement shot, we met up in the Junction (Toronto) and just roamed around the neighbourhood for an hour super casual. When we got our photos back, we could hardly believe how many different types of shots and locations she managed to capture. We loved so many of them that it made it amazingly easy to put together the wedding website, invitations and guest book.
At the wedding, Jen was so efficient with the portrait/family photos (which turned out wonderful!) that Rick and I had tons of time to mingle with our guests at our cocktail hour which was important to us. The majority of her shots are documentary style, so unposed, but it seems like she was everywhere at once and captured all the best moments.
Photos in both rounds came back in a very reasonable amount of time (a couple of weeks at the most).
Booking Jen was one of the best decisions of our wedding!
Jennifer van Son Photography's reply:You two are the absolute sweetest! I can't imagine a better couple to work with, I had so much fun. Congratulations and thanks so much for choosing me to be part of it all :D

Jen is Fantastic!
We had Jen do our engagement photos in January 2018 and she was our wedding photographer for our September 21 2018 wedding. Jen was so amazing throughout the whole process. She sent us helpful tips and questionnaires to keep us on track and get us thinking about all the little things we needed to figure out.Sent on 21/10/2018
On the day of our wedding Jen and her assistant Amy were so great at getting everyone together for the shots we wanted and made the whole experience as stress-free as possible. They ensured all the little details (like no sunglasses or wallets in the guys' pockets) were taken care of and made everyone feel natural and comfortable when doing our photos.
Although we haven't seen all of our wedding photos yet, just an amazing preview to tide us over, we know they will be great! We could not be happier with Jen!
Jennifer van Son Photography's reply:This was the sweetest note to start my day!!!! I love you guys, and check your email, the gallery is done!! xoxoxo

Jen is amazing. Period. We stumbled upon her work when we were considering our venue and her photos might have even helped us select our venue. We loved her shots: the moodiness, the scenery captured, and the quiet feeling they provoked. We knew she was a must for us and really didn't listen to other recommendations for photographers...lol. Jen made us feel very comfortable and she's just a gem as a person so it's easy to work with her. On the day of, she led us with such ease - taking us to beautiful locations and we never felt rushed or stressed - just very calm and happy. She managed to capture so many unexpected shots - my own family kept exclaiming that they never knew she was there and yet somehow got those images. We highly recommend Jen for your wedding! She's absolutely wonderful.Sent on 19/07/2018

Jennifer Van Son is worth every penny! We knew that wedding photography would be one of our bigger budget items, but we were happily surprised with Jen's prices. Especially when you consider, you are not only paying for beautiful quality photos, you are getting an incredibly talented individual who is passionate about her work and the people she works with.Sent on 04/08/2017
She allowed us to be our fun, crazy selves (laughing and joking with us on our big day), while still remaining professional and keeping us on tract of schedule.
We had a blast doing our engagement photos with Jen as well. It was a great way to get to know her style and also to help us feel a little more comfortable in front of the camera. The pictures are gorgeous!
Keep an eye out for Jennifer's sales too. She had a second photographer sale that we jumped on and she introduced us to the fabulous Frances Beatty. Together, they worked liked old friends, inspiring one another with ideas and suggestions.
It was so nice to have a photographer that understood our vision; looking natural, happy and madly in love. She nailed it!
Thank you Jennifer Van Son, for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect!
Jennifer van Son Photography's reply:Thank you so much for the wonderful words Jennifer! It was such a great day with you guys and I'm so happy to hear that your experience was awesome :). Stay tuned for photos!

Every wonderful moment captured!
We feel so lucky to have had a chance to work with Jennifer for our wedding photography. From the first exchange of emails we knew that we have found someone dedicated to making the very best happen for you on your day. We had done quite a few calls with other photographers and none “got it” the way she did. She sought to get to know us and what we were looking for from our photography. We were reassured with plenty of advice, a lovely welcome packet and instant replies to any questions we may have had. Jennifer truly made it easy to not worry about this element of the planning.
On the day, her and Julie were a dream to be around! They were calm, kind, but also were able to step in and keep us on track when it was hard to tear ourselves away from guests. We didn’t feel pressured or uncomfortable, she let us be ourselves. Taking our couple’s portraits was such a wonderful breather, she understood that it was not only a time for us to capture photos of the two of us but a chance to be alone a moment before the rest of the day, and was able to direct us whilst giving us that feeling of privacy. It was a jam packed day with plenty of unusual elements and Jennifer’s organization, creativity and, honestly, it must be magic, resulted in the most gorgeous gallery where not a moment was missed! She listened to our desires and captured not only incredible portraits of us (that we are really struggling to choose between in terms of printing!) but such vivid emotions of all of our loved ones throughout the day.
Jennifer also really understands a newlywed couple and how immediate that pull to relive the day is. She worked incredibly hard to get our photos to us and was excellent following up. We were spoiled with a wonderful preview of our images only weeks after the wedding, and were amazed at how quickly she was able to turn around the final, very high-quality and extensive gallery to us.
When you are wedding planning and you hear that photography is an important investment (and let’s be honest, it can be a large element of your budget) you don’t get to appreciate how truly important it is until the day has flown by and the worry that you missed something coupled with the desire to relive it sets in. It has been so worth it, and we will be eternally grateful to Jennifer for the ability to relive the beauty and feeling of this day for years to come.
