A Look Back at 2011

Happy New Year!!!

As I ease gently (and freezingly) into the new year, it’s time to take a look back at 2011.  I’m not sure if I’m just lucky or if there is something that attracts a particular type of person (the very cool type of person) to my work–but I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing folks this year.  It’s been wonderful.

Though I do think of myself as an artist, in reality this is a service profession.  I listen to what my clients hope to achieve, and do my damnedest to get it for them while still maintaining my own personal style.  I can only try my hardest and hope they will be happy with the results.

Nothing is more satisfying in my work than getting feedback from my clients that they love their images.  Knowing that I’ve given them those priceless moments to remember forever means the world to me.  Here are just a few of the wonderful things I’ve heard from clients this year…


Jenny I am SO excited. I already started viewing and they are incredible. I’m only on 127 out of 1002 and I already want every single picture!! You did such an incredible job – I seriously don’t know how I am going to choose between all of them. I’m going to need every single one framed in my house!   – Brynn

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny,

Where do I begin?  You are Jordan were fabulous!  So kind, warm and fun!  We had the most unbelievable wedding day and it seems that you guys certainly captured it.   Thank you for your quick work!!  We have gotten so many compliments regarding the blog post you put up (we checked it out while in Greece and couldn’t stop playing it over and over 🙂    – Melissa


I just want to say thank you again for being such an incredible talent and professional.  We were off to a late start and you kept things moving at the pace they needed to be.  With you at the helm all my stress melted away and I really appreciate how much time you spent scouting.  I am certain that we will have one of a kind wedding photos and are so lucky to have found you.      – Jamie

We just got back from Spain and looked over the pictures on Pictage.  Thank you so much – they look lovely.  I don’t know how you were able to get such amazing shots despite the low lighting, but they’re really great – you are incredibly talented.   -Kate

Phil and I had so much fun today! It was exactly what we wanted and we really enjoyed it! Thank you for taking so much time with us, for being so thorough, and for being a wonderful director. You made us feel very comfortable and made it easy and fun. Thanks again!   – Caitie

WOW!  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! And I can’t stop looking at the slide show over and over again. I can tell today won’t be a very productive day at work for me…lol!

You and Jordan are amazing photographers!!! The way you’re able to relay emotion through your photos is really powerful. Love the candid shots! You truly know how to capture moments and freeze them in time. Looking at these pictures makes me feel like I’m re-living the whole day over and over again, they bring back all the emotions and happy memories from that day and remind me of how amazing it was.   -Jane

Thank you for being everywhere and seeing everything!   -Roxanne

I loved the engagement photos
but these are truly beautiful.
I was so worried about the rain and the icky-humidity that came in
and you made everything look incredible.
I didn’t cry during my wedding but looking at the slideshow had me tearing up!
I can’t wait to see all the photos.

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us.   -Sara

Just went through them quickly–can’t wait to peruse. You are an ARTIST–you really captured the spirit of the wedding and the whole thing looks like a fairy tale–but better. I am so happy that you recorded our day–love, love, LOVE the results.

xoxo   -Paula

We cannot thank you enough for capturing our wedding. You were such a joy to work with, and made us feel so comfortable,. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you making sure we got all the shots we had hoped for, plus many more we never would have thought of ourselves! We cannot wait to see the actual photos, but we know they will be amazing and “neat-o” 🙂   -Sarah

The pictures are amazing!  Thank you so much for getting so many up this fast.  My friends and family have been enjoying and complimenting what they’ve seen so far as well.  Looking forward to seeing the rest!  Thanks again for the outstanding job you did.     -Tricia

I was just looking at the photos – I love them. I can’t wait for Christine to get home so we can view them together.  We can then argue a few days over which ones to order. 🙂 So far what I love most are the photos of Christine. She is so animated and you really captured her spirit.    -Angie

Great post! It’s so fun to read what we in the family already knew…you are extremely talented and sweet! I’m amazed with every photo you post.

Ann Marie Boyle - January 6, 2012 - 1:46 pm

I’ll second what Jayme had to say! It’s one thing to have your clients adore you and whole other thing to have family say it!

Jennifer - January 7, 2012 - 10:39 am
