    We were incredibly impressed with Jen's photographs and professionalism at our wedding. The quality of her work was amazing and for the price it blew us away with how many pictures she took. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer, either for weddings or any other ocassion. She helped capture the best day of our lives and our wonderful memories in the making & we were completely happy with everything she did for us!

    I completely agree with the previous poster as we had a very similar experience with Urban Couture Photography. Unfortunately, we had her do our wedding shoot and only have a small handful (4 or 5) of somewhat decent and usable photos to show for it. More than half of the photos she provided to us were blurry and taken from a single point perspective, (from below looking up), random obvious objects were in the background, and many were very dark. We have NO usable photos of our reception and received no direction in regards to posing. Truthfully, we are happier with photos taken by people attending the wedding. Her work is that of an untrained and unskilled photographer and her complete unprofessionalism was shown numerous times.

    After expressing our concerns to Jennifer, she suggested doing a "make up shoot". We had no interest in dealing with her again, and suggested getting partially reimbursed. She originally agreed and we were informed she would be making small payments over the next several weeks. Later we received an email stating she would not be giving us anymore money and she stands behind her "quality" of work... despite agreeing to partially reimburse us. We suggested meeting with her in person to go through the photos and point out our concerns, to which her response was that she had no interest in meeting with us and stood behind her work. If she felt so strongly about her level of work, why wouldn't she at least meet with us? Why would she originally agree to reimbursing us?

    I sincerely caution anyone seeking her services. We cannot relive those moments and have virtually no photos to show for our special day. It is still difficult to accept we have nothing to share with our family, friends, and loved ones.

    The woman who owns this business was recommended to us by a friend. At first she seemed so interested in how we met and very attentive. She insisted on doing an engagement shoot to "get to know us as a couple better" and thank god she did because her pictures were horrible. Before the engagement shoot she took a 50% deposit of $1000, and at the engagement shoot she asked all the same questions she had asked when we signed a contract with her proving she didn't listen to anything we had told her. The shoot was very quick and painless, however during the shoot we picked out things like gum on a brick wall we asked her to later photo shop. When we received our photos, it seemed nothing had been photo shopped (including the things we had asked for) and every picture was blurry and awkward. The main focus of all the shots were the back ground and we were always blurry, plus she gave us absolutely no direction during the shoot and needless to say we looked terrible. Plus the majority of her photos were taken looking up on us so we looked 10-30 pounds heavier varying through out the photos.

    When we explained our concerns to her and that we'd like to go with another photographer as we were so unhappy with her work she apologized and offered to do another shot. At this point we looked her up online and her website had completely changed with the same quality of photos. We told her we felt as though she provided us with false advertising and we'd like to get some of our deposit back if possible as it was very large and her response was no because she had turned another bride away and taken all that time to put together our photos.

    I would NEVER recommend this photographer to anyone, and don't be swayed by her initial impression. This girl should stick to shooting scenery and stay far away from weddings.
