As many of the others have said, there really are no words to describe Jenn & Shane's work. Planning a wedding over 3,000 miles away is no easy task. We chose to go with Acqua Photo based on the galleries we saw online and all the great reviews we read. They we're both an absolute pleasure to work with, fun and energetic! When we got to look at all the amazing photos and memories they captured, they we're breathtaking! I have gotten hundreds of complements on these photos. I would definitely recommend them to anybody who is looking for a great time and amazing pictures! Thank you for capturing each moment of our wedding!

I couldn't have asked for more. My fiance and I had our engagement photo session with Shane and we had a blast! Not only did he capture us entirely he made it incredibly fun and not awkward! I was very afraid of having my picture taken which seems weird because im a selfie queen lol. But Shane was great about it we had a great time and now we have beautiful photos forever! Can't wait for the big day eeeEEeer

There are truly no words to describe our experience with Jen and Shane. They are amazing and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Our planner suggested Acqua and after some internet research we were in love with their aesthetic. We met with Jen and Shane and it was like having coffee with two old friends. We laughed and talked about the wedding and our ideas for engagement photos.

We had our engagement photos at Disneyland and the images Jen captured are absolutely incredible. My husband and I could not stop smiling as we looked through them the first time! They are absolute professionals and their talent shines through in each picture.

On our wedding day Jen and Shane were quick, efficient, and absolutely amazing. They captured every detail, emotion, laugh and memory. Our guests commented time and again how amazing our photographers were, seamlessly capturing every moment without being intrusive or overbearing.

My husband and I have already told Jen and Shane they are stuck with us for all future life events!

Weddings can be super stressful and any decision that is easy and fills you with confidence is such a relief. Acqua is that kind of decision. They are truly amazing and we could not be happier with our decision!!

Acqua Photo is absolutely amazing, and we could not have imagined better people and photographers to capture every special moment at our wedding!

Let me start by saying, working with Jen and Shane felt like having old friends photographing our special day. The way they interact with each other is seamless, making sure they always get the best shot and make the most of every moment. They are amazing at interacting with the wedding party and guests – getting everyone to relax and really bring out the best of everyone in every picture!

They scouted our wedding site before we got there and selected the most picturesque locations to do our group shots and more importantly our first look. All of the photos are absolutely breath taking, they truly captured all of the most intimate and meaningful moments of the day and we will cherish the photos forever!

Jen and Shane were 100% available and willing to help us troubleshoot with any issues leading up to the wedding. Their style is unmatched, they think outside of the box to get the most amazing photos with the perfect balance of trend and class. We would recommend Acqua Photo to anyone in a heartbeat!

Acqua did an amazing job at all three of our photo sessions. First was our engagement shoot, then the Vixen shoot, and finally the Wedding. Every single time we received our photos from the shoot they left us with our mouths dropped on the floor. EVERY SINGLE picture they sent us was beautiful. Jen and Shane did a great job at directing us and captured our fun spirit in all of our pictures in a very natural way. During the wedding, they did not get in the way at all. They were a part of the party and really blended in. We have yet to find a person who has seen our pictures that isn't absolutely WOW'd by them. Not only are they super fun and nice, but they are also extremely professional and detail oriented. It was such a special touch for them to organize our pictures in a creative way and post them on Facebook for all of our friends to see. We would absolutely recommend Acqua Photo to all of our friends, family, and newly engaged couples here on the internet. You will not be disappointed. They are truly talented and passionate about what they do. We are actually really sad that the wedding planning process is over because we enjoyed working with them so much. But we will definitely use them in the future for maternity and/or family photos! We can't wait!!

One of the most important decisions you will make for your wedding is your photographer. They are the people who you will spend the most time with and are responsible for truly capturing every moment of your special day. Jen and Shane by far exceeded our expectations and are everything you could want and more in your photographers! We had the pleasure of shooting our engagement session with Jen. She made us super comfortable and her energy made each shot new and creative. She captured the essence of our venue and made the entire day fun and also prepared us for what to expect on the big day. For the day of our wedding Jen and Shane were both professional, innovative and eager to capture all the love that surrounded us. They went above and beyond to make sure all the photos we requested where complete and then some. They were in tune with what we were looking for when it came to next level photos. We couldn’t have been happier with the photos from our engagement and wedding. Not to mention the speedy delivery of both sessions for us to share with our friends and family! We are so lucky to have such amazing photos to bring us back to the happiest day of our lives, and we owe it all the Jen and Shane at Acqua Photo. We look forward to working with Jen and Shane in the future and highly recommend them to everyone! <3 The Cunningham's

Our entire wedding photography experience from start to finish with Jen and Shane was absolutely fantastic!
After meeting with a couple of other wedding photographers and not feeling like they were "the one", Tim and I both knew within minutes that Acqua Photo was exactly what we had been searching for. It was the combination of their fun-loving personalities, enthusiastic energy and their interesting mix of modern and fashion photography backgrounds (not to mention the gorgeous photos they showed us as examples of their work) that made the decision easy for us.
We had a wonderful time with Jen and Shane during our engagement shoot, it felt like we were hanging out with old friends! They even designed an amazing photobook using the engagement pictures that we used as our guest book at the wedding. The wedding day went seamlessly, as Jen and Shane worked their magic with our first look photos and incorporated various backdrops around our venue property. We were so impressed with their creative ideas for fun and romantic shots and we loved all of the family and bridal party shots, as well.
We will be recommending Acqua Photo to every couple that is searching for an unforgettable wedding photography experience and amazing photos to enjoy for a lifetime.

Jen and Shane are a DYNAMIC DUO! We couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire them to capture our wedding.

Something unique about Acqua is that you get two PRO photographers - so Shane captured the boys, while Jen shot the ladies. They have different styles too, so we ended up with such a great mix of pics that ranged from sexy/romantic/artsy to gorgeous wide angles and thoughtfully composed group shots.

Another huge plus was that they were way more familiar with our wedding venue than we were, so for our bride/groom pics, they came prepared with great ideas for different locations and styles. They even brought a quilt to use to get some shots of us laying down - which turned out amazing! I honestly had NO time to think about things like this, so I was immensely grateful that they took the reins and guided the whole experience. True pros. It was clear that they that they were snapping pics with US in mind. Love that! You can tell that, to them, each couple is different and they actually took the the time to capture our personalities along with the vibe of our wedding.

They were also great at being flies on the wall - I honestly didn’t see them during the ceremony and barely noticed them throughout the reception - yet they caputred EVERYTHING! When we received our photos (just 3 short weeks later) it was like reliving our wedding all over again - only we got to experience moments that we missed on our wedding day! Who knew my friend and brother-in-law recreated the lift scene from Dirty Dancing? :)

Hiring Acqua was absolutely our favorite decision throughout the whole crazy wedding process. Thanks guys for doing an amazing job capturing the best day ever!! Can’t wait to come back in a couple years (?) for a family photo sesh :)

Jen and Shane did an absolutely phenomenal job with our engagement and wedding photos. Not only did they make us feel 100% comfortable, they were creative and artistic with all of the shots they took.

First off, Jen and Shane showed up early on our wedding day, which meant so much to us as it was one less thing to have to worry about. Shane spent most of the morning with the groom and groomsmen and Jen with the bride and bridesmaids, so every moment was captured perfectly. Our bridal party was pretty large, and they did a great job getting us all organized and looking good for group shots. Most importantly to us, they captured our most special moments during the ceremony.

At the reception we also used a photo booth, which was a favorite among all of our guests. It was a really fun way to capture the night along with Jen and Shane taking the photos.

I would recommend Jen and Shane to anyone! We look forward to working with them again one day!

Hands down two of the best people!

Jen and Shane are a truly amazing couple and as individuals, each incredible photographers. Just take a glance through any of their photos and you can see that their work speaks for itself! We had the pleasure of Jen and Shane capturing our special day and needless to say it went without a hitch. They were professionals, on time, and stuck to our planner’s timeline, which in turn helped the whole wedding run on time and on schedule! They captured every moment and made us feel comfortable and at ease. Our whole experience with Jen and Shane from the initial contact and meet to the engagement session and wedding seemed enjoyable, effortless and seamless. Both, Jen and Shane were very responsive, helpful and seemed to really put the needs of their clients first.

Jen and Shane are a fun-loving-talented couple and we couldn't have been happier with our decision! Not only are our wedding photos amazing, our engagement photos are incredible and the studio booth photos were a hit! The studio booth actually brought an added bonus of sharing in our guests moments from the wedding (I highly recommend it)!

Each session we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We plan on Jen and Shane capturing many more of our memories in the years to come. You will not be disappointed in your decision to hire Acqua Photo!
