I can not write enough positive feedback about Jess, Genie and Birdsong Photography!!! I was a destination bride in Scottsdale, AZ and found Birdsong from a google search. Not only were their photos beautiful, but their pricing was much more reasonable compared to the Scottsdale sticker price. I did alot of emailing with them about my wedding day and the package that would best suit us for our BIG DAY. They were always very responsive and did a great job steering me in the right direction. I did not meet them until the day of the wedding which can be alittle frightening as a bride however they showed up and were so professional. You can tell they have done hundreds of weddings because they were efficient with our time and didn't spend too much time with one set of our guests (both family and friends). Many of our guests commented on how professional the two of them were and helpful in placing people where they needed to be. Once the wedding was over I was eager to see our photos. Jess & Genie completed our photos sooner than they had promised and went above and beyond what my actual package consisted of. We were overjoyed with how they turned out!!! I would recommend this couple to anyone and everyone looking for a talented, spirited, and professional photographers in the Arizona area. Job well done!!

Jess and Genie were amazing. They both are progressional, their pictures are amazing, and they are so fun to work with. We had our engagement photos taken with them and Jess spent all day with us in Sedona, taking us to amazing spots to capture awesome photos. They were with us all day for our wedding day also, capturing all our special moments. We received so many compliments about our photographers from our guests and how they did such an amazing job. We can't thank Jess and Genie enough for capturing our special day!!

Jess and Genie are amazing to work with! First, they have extensive experience in photography and weddings – you want someone with that kind of experience taking your pictures. I first met them at a wedding show in Phoenix. They took the time to answer questions in detail and give advice. There was a real rapport with them that was missing with other photographers. Your photographers will be in your face all day on your wedding so you want someone that you feel comfortable with.

I appreciated how clear they made the expectations for the process right from the start. Emails and phone calls were answered quickly. They always were helping us look our best by asking us to not smile or smile – to get that real smile and how to place our arm or head. If you are looking at their packages, go for the full. This is the area of your wedding to invest in. Get your engagement photos with them - you will get to know each other which will make the day of the wedding go even better.

They were also open to my ideas on photographs I wanted taken. Of course, with their great expertise, they took all of the right photos I could never think of. Our guests loved working with them the day of the wedding - they were everywhere taking pictures and such fun to work with.
After the wedding, they went above and beyond to get our pictures perfect. We received a small selection right after the wedding that I was able to use on our Thank You cards. They take their time to edit photos to perfection so you can have them forever. I love that not only do you get the edited photos in the contract but you also get all of the photos they took – thousands of them! Not all photographers do this and it really sets Jess and Genie apart. The effort they made in making the pictures look great was phenomenal!

Thank you to Jess and Genie for making our wedding day magical and capturing every moment!

Jess and Genie were absolutely amazing to work with. Jess was always there to answer questions and responded to all emails promptly. The photographs from our engagement session and wedding were wonderful and they really did a great job with getting all the shots we would have wanted. On our wedding day, they both made everyone feel so comfortable. Birdsong photography was by far our favorite vendor to work with for our wedding. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a great experience and great photographs.

Jess and Jeanne were absolutely excellent. After our first meeting I knew they were going to do an awesome job and it was nice to not have to worry about anything. They were great with communication and keeping in touch. The day of, they were totally professional and on the ball. They worked great with the guests and other vendors. They did a super job of capturing all the photos we could want and more. For the quality of photos we received I think we got an excellent value. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone!!!!

From the moment we introduced ourselves to Jess and Genie, Jason and I knew we were going to schedule them to be the photographers on our special day. We talked to the two photographers for several minutes to find out about pricing, scheduling, packages, etc. and it only took us walking away from the vendor table for one minute to turn right back around and make sure that we had them booked for our day. From that day on Jess was responsive, professional, friendly, flexible, available, everything that you would want from a photographer. He is such an intimate person, from his kindness to his ability to capture the romantic passion between you and your love. If I had the opportunity to choose a photographer again, I would choose Birdsong Photography every time. Their packages, pricing, and personalities are unmatched in every way. Thank you Jess and Genie, for being the angels to watch over our day and make sure that it came out exactly how we needed it to be remembered!!!

Jess and Genie were amazing to work with. I found them at a bridal expo in Flagstaff, AZ and their photos were outstanding, so I decided to meet with Jess to see if they would work for our wedding. Jess was extremely professional to work with and completely honest. He is not going to try and sell you something that you do not want, but he will tell you how your day will go, realistically as far as which photo package you chose. They have done several weddings and are very knowledgeable.

Leading up to the wedding Jess was able to help me answer some of my question about what is traditional, what looks good in a picture and even if he had worked with another vendor that I was considering.

The day of the wedding was exceptional!!! They were prompt and ready to take photos. Jess went and did photos with my husband and groomsmen while Genie did photos with me and my bridesmaids before the wedding. During the wedding I received several compliments about our photographers and what a good job they were doing. Everyone was excited to see the photos.

They are busy and we were married at a busy time of year for them. We were able to get 12 photos that we could use for thank cards two weeks after our wedding. We had to wait 4 months for the remaining photos. It was well worth the wait and now I have amazing memories that will last a lifetime.

Jess and Genie did not only put in a tremendous amount of effort on the day of our wedding to make sure everything was in the right place, but they also picked out the photos to best tell our story and did an amazing job editing them.

Our wedding day photos are everything we wanted and more, they truly know how to capture a wedding and to make everyone look outstanding! If you need a wedding photographer I highly recommend them and would not have used anyone else!

Thank you Jess and Genie for all that you did we are so happy you were part of our day, you helped make it special!!!

When we decided to have our wedding in Flagstaff, we knew it was going to be a challenge to make all the decisions when we both were living separately and out of state. We explored the options online and made inquiries through email, and to be honest, I almost didn't even email Jess at Birdsong. A few of the local photographers had quotes upwards of $8,000 for their most comprehensive package, and to say the least, I was frustrated. When I saw Birdsong's website, I almost just said "forget it", its gonna be WAY out of our price range. But, I tried my luck one more time and couldn't believe the affordability and value for such amazing pictures and photography package. We met with Jess on a quick weekend trip to Flagstaff, and we were very impressed with his personality and professionalism. Through the next months, Jess was by far the best of our vendors to be in contact with. He was prompt with responses and so helpful and willing to please. The day of the wedding, Jess and Genie were amazing. They made us feel at ease and never added any extra stress. Now that we have our pictures in hand, I am so thankful that we went with Birdsong Photography. We have beautiful memories of our very special day that we will cherish forever.

Jess and Genie are absolutely phenomenal photographers! We met Jess when we were looking for photographers for our wedding. We live in Chandler, while they are located in Flagstaff. Jess drove all the way down to meet with us. Right off the bat, you could tell that Jess was a serious photographer. We could instantly tell how passionate he is about photography. We were drawn to his fun personality and how knowledgeable he is about photography. Jess knows a lot about lighting, cameras, Photoshop, and basically everything a great photographer needs to know!

We did our engagement session with Jess up in Sedona. He is very familiar with the area and knows all the great spots to take pictures in. He ended up spending the entire with us taking pictures in various locations around Sedona. The engagement pictures were perfect! We got so many comments about how great the pictures were! After seeing the engagement pictures, we knew our wedding photos would be fantastic!

Fast forward to our wedding day… Jess spent the afternoon taking pictures with the guys, while Genie worked with the ladies. Genie is a fantastic photographer as well! Her attention to detail is amazing! Jess and Genie are quite the pair! They have everything under control. They give great direction, which was awesome during some of the family shots. They work so well together and constantly bounce ideas off of each other. Throughout the ceremony and reception, Jess and Genie were like photography ninjas. They we’re intrusive at all; they did a great job blending in.

It took a little while for us to get our wedding pictures, but they were definitely worth the wait!! The fully edited pictures are incredible! I have received so many comments from friends and family about how great our pictures turned out.

Overall, Jess and Genie were awesome to work with. They are simply the best wedding photographers out there. I highly, highly recommend them!!

We absolutely love our wedding photos. Jess and Genie really helped capture our special day! They are so cool and fun to work with and we seriously felt like they were a big part of our wedding. I've heard so many stories of weddings where the bride and groom hardly had time to dance and eat because of all the madness between photos and this and that, but Jess and Genie were instrumental in helping to drive our time line. We got every photo we wanted and also got to eat, drum, and dance the night away! Thank you Jess and Genie, for everything! So, future bride & groom: choose Birdsong Photography!

Jess and Genie from Birdsong Wedding Photography were AMAZING! We had found them through their website and instantly fell in love with their style and photos. We loved how responsive Jess was to all of our emails and phone calls. We did our engagement photos with Birdsong as well, Jess had a lot of ideas on where to shoot at, and great poses to be in. Jess and Genie were great at getting us to relax during the photos. They were extremely personable and friendly with both us and with our entire wedding crowd. They did a great job of addressing the concerns of our parents and grandparents, they made my wife and I feel absolutely stunning during the big day, they made us feel like it was just the two of us, not like we were on display. They listened to all our requests and ensured that we got all the photos we wanted. I was most impressed with how they were there for all the big moments at the ceremony/reception, but I never felt they were blocking any guests or interfering with the ceremony. You could definitely tell they worked well together and knew what they were doing, to ensure all the moments were captured! I would absolutely recommend Birdsong Wedding Photography to my friends and family! Thank you Jess and Genie for making our wedding a success!

I couldn't be happier with my wedding photos from BIRDSONG! First off, Jess and Genie were amazing to have around on the wedding day. They worked so hard and did so much work behind the scenes we didn't even realize was happening. They were both so fun and relaxed. Their enthusiasm for us as a couple and getting our best shots made it a very FUN and easy experience! Our photos are amazing and really do tell the story of the whole night. They didn't miss a thing. Going through all our wedding photos again made us re-live this day! We chose Jess and Genie after our first meeting with Jess and feel so lucky we made the right decision! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Jess and Genie were absolutely AMAZING! They did our engagement pictures and wedding photography, and we couldn't be happier with all of our photos. We had close to 300 people at our wedding and they captured everyone. Their professionalism and easy going personalities made our wedding day go flawless. They worked well with all of our vendors and even our our wedding guests were commenting on how professional yet fun they were! We received rights to all our pictures (over 6000 pictures!) and they got everything to us on schedule, not to mention they went above and beyond and even provided a couple extra edited photos for us that were not included in our package. The quality of the photos is outstanding. They can use us as a reference anytime and we are one HAPPY Bride & Groom! Thank you again Jess & Genie!!!

I have never seen photographers take par in the enjoyment as much as they did while producing the most incredible memories through their work.

From the moment we began planning our wedding in March 2012 and first happened upon their website, to enjoying our own OUTSTANDING wedding photos, we have been so impressed and pleased with Jess and Genie of Birdsong Wedding Photography. The level of expertise in their craft, and utmost professionalism and service throughout our experience with them sets them apart from others in their field, and we truly appreciated everything they did to ensure our satisfaction.
Our communication leading up to the wedding was primarily with Jess. His past years as a photography professor at NAU are certainly reflected in his excellent communication skills, prompt responses, receptiveness, and patience with us as we planned for our big day, on our wedding day, and even post-wedding.
Furthermore, our family members and other guests of the wedding have commented numerous times about how impressed even they were with the level of dedication and professionalism that they witnessed from Jess and Genie, and their joy and amazement after seeing the photos to find that they truly did not miss a single moment! Needless to say, we feel very lucky to have found Birdsong Wedding Photography, and highly recommend their services to any bride and groom-to-be.

Jess and Genie are the absolute BEST. We interviewed a few photographers, but when we met with Jess and looked at his work we knew that he was the perfect person to document our wedding. Jess was kind enough to travel to Pinetop, AZ (where we got engaged) to shoot our engagement session. After we got our engagement photos back we KNEW that we made the right decision for our photographer. We just got our wedding photos back and they are incredible! We couldn't be more happy! Jess and Genie captured every emotion that we went through on the day of our wedding and you can see it in each picture that they took. We can't stop looking at our photos...and neither can our family and friends! Their pictures truly told the story of our special day and I know that we will be able to relive our wedding day for years to come.
Jess and Genie were very professional throughout the entire planning process and gave us great advice. Not only were they easy to work with, most importantly, they were fun to be around! Everyone in our wedding party commented on how great our photographers were. In addition, we had a three year old flower girl and they were amazing with her...she was in several photos and they got her to look at the camera and smile for each one! They were also very accommodating. We didn't want to see each other before the wedding, which required a lot of planning. Jess and I spoke two weeks before the wedding to work out the details of the day and everything worked out perfectly.
It was so helpful to have two photographers. The day of the wedding Genie stayed with the girls while Jess stayed with the guys. Jess and Genie didn't skip a beat...they were extremely organized and knew exactly what the other was doing.
Jess and Genie, thank you so much for everything! You guys were amazing and we couldn't be happier with our photos!!! You are the BEST!!! - Natalie and Bret

If you are looking at this site and still on the fence, JUMP! The pictures were more than we could have dreamed. To have two photographers to snatch moments of your big day is worth it. Jess was an absolute gem guiding us through the poses for all the traditional shots and he was open to anything we wanted to try. Some how both Genie and Jess were everywhere for these shots but not ever in the way, I really don't know how they did it. We had to wait for a while for the finished product, but it was WORTH it! Now I can't wait to have an anniversary party to hire them again. The professional and personal touches these two photographers gave our day, will keep them in high demand for some time, so get your date in order and call them. If you think I am gushing, just look at the site and compare.

Weddings are stressful to plan, but trying to find a photographer a week before your wedding I thought to be impossible. I was truely blessed when I found Bird Song Wedding Photography because they enthusiastically and proffessionaly booked my wedding with such short notice. Jess was so easy to talk to on the phone and was very open from the begining. Then my wedding day comes and I meet the wonderful team and with my good luck it rains turning my beautiful out door wedding to indoors, but Jess and Genie didn't flich; being the professioals that they are they still produced the most amazing photos that I did't think to be possible. Genie was a blast to work with taking fun photos of all the girls getting ready, and shooting all the little details that seem to get missed on such a very big day. The punch line though is the moment I got the email to see my photo story line for the first time, and a whirl wind of emotions flooded through me and a day that seemed to fly by was frozen in frames that perfectly captured the moments that I had so easily forgotten. There are no words to express my gratitude for their artwork that so beautifuly expressed my wedding day.

Jess and Genie at Birdsong were great to work with. They always responded right away when we were planning and made getting everything arranged a breeze. On the day of the wedding they were excellent, they did a superb job of setting us and our guests at ease - they were funny, friendly and professional. Their equipment and skills were top of the line and our photographs came out looking absolutely phenomenal - many of them could easily pass as movie posters! We were very happy with the pricing and we know no one else could have delivered the quality of photos that we got with Birdsong.

One set price for 2 photographers for as long as you need them, do I need to say more? Gene and Jess were so pleasant to work with - they truly care about you as a bride/groom and your big day. You can tell these two are a dynamic pair when you first meet them - they divide and concur. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Given it is wedding season, we do not have our finished product yet - however, clear expectations were set upfront which I respect. I have no doubt the photos will be amazing.

Why it’s worth it to get the best wedding photographers you can:
I don’t have very many beautiful portraits of my family. We don’t always have an occasion to bring everyone together over the year, and the roster has changed since we last did portraits. The kids have partners now and my parents divorced a long time ago and are on second relationships. All those positive developments needed to be recorded! I looked through the photos with my mom when they came back and we both cried with happiness. And just think—you aren’t just giving a gift to the people you know now, there are people you haven’t met yet (kids, perhaps?) that will treasure these photos long after you’re dead and gone. Nobody will remember the food or entertainment. But those photos are forever.

Another reason photography was so important to us was we knew we might not have some of the current family members with us for much longer. Though healthy, my grandfather is 87, and my husband’s grandfather was just barely well enough to make it to the wedding. It turned out to be his last night out with everyone--now, four months later, he is in hospice care. Those pictures of him dressed up to the nines and salsa dancing with his daughters (though he had to remain in his wheelchair) are absolutely treasured by my their whole family. He looks positively dashing! The photos happened to come back at just the right time to bring them some joy during this difficult time. :’-)

Of the wedding vendors we worked with for our wedding, I was happiest about choosing Jess and Genie (the kind faces behind Birdsong Photography). I’m kind of poor, and did have to cheap out in some areas of the wedding budget in order to afford world-class photography. But for the quality of those images, the cost was totally reasonable. I am so, so, glad I went for it. Here's why:

Genie and Jess worked with us to record each little wedding detail. There is a beautiful detail shot of my late grandmother’s pearl bracelet that my mom loaned me to wear for luck. The shots of the dress, rings, programs, etc, are technically perfect, and beautiful. The women at work were gasping over a picture of my SHOE, if that helps you understand. We did a “first look” and the pictures of that are some of my favorites. I’m cute I guess-- but basically, you know, average looking-- and in the photos they made my husband and I and our families look like ourselves, but GORGEOUS. Something with the lighting—we all look smokin’ hot! The ceremony pics, family portraits and photojournalistic ones all look incredible. I’m not going to say much more about the quality of the photos, I mean the galleries speak for themselves.

They were on time, prompt with communication, at ease, comfortable, friendly, and low-key. Trust me I am more than a little camera shy but I immediately felt great working with them. One thing I appreciated is they stayed with us the entire day, from me getting ready to the very end of the evening, for a flat rate. Some photographers only stay a few hours—watch out for that. You don’t want your best wedding day moments to go unrecorded because the photographer already left, and really you don’t know when the magic will happen! There’s a little bit of mystery on that day.

I am thrilled, totally satisfied, and I feel like shouting from the rooftops that if you hire Birdsong Photography you won’t be sorry. Hats off to Jess and Genie!

My husband and I are so impressed with Jess and Genie that we feel lucky to have had their time and effort. We've never met anyone so dedicated and passionate about their work. They really know photography and weddings. They were so organized and always exuded energy and enthusiasm. They'll do anything to get the best shot...Genie fell in the river at one time and Jess was digging himself into the dirt to get the right angle. They both magically got our huge family (from age 8 to 80) in a photo within minutes...AND we all looked good. They also took us in their jeep to get to the most exclusive off-road spots in Sedona. When we saw our finished photos, I was grinning from ear to ear throughout the whole slideshow that my cheeks hurt. My favorite, besides the breath-taking Red Rock shots, were the candid photos of our guests and the children! They really captured the sparkle in their eyes. My Mom was also very happy with how much more slender her arms looked (after editing :P) Jess and Genie's dedication go beyond the day of your wedding. They meticulously sort and edit thousands of photos to deliver only A+ work. So if you want a photographer to send you all of your photos within a week or so, pick a different photographer. Jess and Genie don't just take photos, they create quality timeless pieces of art. THANK YOU JESS and GENIE!

Wow, what can I say... Jess and Genie were just simply amazing. I had hardly any idea what I was doing on the wedding day but when it came to the photography, Jess and Genie knew exactly what to do and made it very easy and natural for us. From beginning to end, our communication with them was open and clear. Jess told us exactly what to expect and exactly what we were getting. They are extremely prepared and just exude the air of well-trained professionals that have seen hundreds of weddings. They knew exactly what to say to get people to smile. They joke at the right times and know how to connect with every single member of the wedding party and guest that they photographed. And they do all of this naturally because their personalities are just likeable. :) Out of all the vendors that I hired that night, family and friends commented on and praised Jess and Genie's work the most, noting that they were just SO on top of things. Everyone said these things without even having seen a single photo (our wedding was just 2 days ago), THAT'S how good they are! And we can say the same... that you cannot go wrong with Jess and Genie. They know their stuff! And you are definitely getting your money's worth! For example, I had no idea there would be no lighting on our dance floor. So we were all dancing... in the dark. But Jess and Genie rolled with it, didn't even say a word to me and just kept shooting. They are such troopers and do such an awesome job. I'm sure once I get the pictures back, I'll be writing another review because I'm 100% positive that the images will be beautiful. If you like their photographic style, GO with them. You will have the best experience with them, guaranteed. :)

We absolutely LOVE our photos! Jess and Genie did such an incredible job! They have captured our special moments and delivered them the way we imagined them to be. Being in the creative business, we completely appreciate the level of detail in their photos—from the composition, lighting, clarity, to the color balance, Jess and Genie nailed it! Their true dedication to their craft is reflected in their beautiful work.

In addition, they're very responsive and they take their time with you to discuss your needs. They're very honest and will give good tips and suggestions. They will tell you what you'll exactly get with certain lighting during the day, location, etc.

Great value as well since you get two of them—more angles, perspective and locations. Genie photographed me and my bridesmaids getting ready, while Jess was at my groom's room with the groomsmen. Then, Jess took care of our after ceremony shots, while Genie was at the reception to take photos of table details, guests arriving, etc.

Overall, we had a wonderful wedding day, and we thank Jess & Genie for the memories we'll always cherish through their amazing photography.

Jess and Genie exceeded our expectations! I looked at all the photographers in the area and none of them could match the talent and value of Birdsong Wedding Photography. I loved that their work wasn't just gorgeous, it was original. From beginning to end, they were amazing to work with. Jess was always very responsive on email and talked to me on the phone several times to work out all the logistics. They really made everything low stress; I never had to worry about what they were doing or working on because I knew they had it under control and were super organized. SO many people told us how wonderful they were in terms of accommodating photo requests, being pleasant and kind, and just being so great to work with in general. Jess and Genie were 100% committed to getting awesome shots. Seeing them genuinely excited about the shots they were getting really showed how much they truly love what they do; it's not just a job to them.

When we got the pictures back, we were blown away. We had always hoped they would be good, but they were more than good. Jess and Genie put in more time than any average photographers in choosing and carefully editing each photo and it showed. They depicted our day in an original and intimate way that left a huge smile on our faces as we looked through them. The day after pictures were AMAZING. So original, creative, and beautiful. After the wedding day is over, there are so few things left to remember it by as years pass so the photos were a priority for us. We feel so honored to have such beautiful, original photos that reflect us and our day that we can cherish for years to come. The photos were magazine quality with a creative and intimate twist unlike anyone else's photos, which was the reason we chose Jess and Genie and they more than exceeded our expectations.

Jess and Genie are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Their talent and professionalism is exactly what every bride and groom dream of to document their perfect day. They make such a great team, which enables them to capture numerous happenings simultaneously, each possessing a unique eye and perspective. They are very discrete, however numerous family & friends commented on how impressed they were by them. We opted to do a second photo shoot the day after the wedding to allow us to spend less time the day of taking pictures, as well as take advantage of all of the beautiful scenery in Sedona. For this, Jess and Genie took us to the most beautiful (and off the main path) locations. They were literally willing to do whatever it took to get a great shot, which is VERY rare for photographers (most that we interviewed were more interested in the ‘minutes’ you were purchasing). Our pictures are absolutely breathtaking - they literally look like they're out of a magazine. We confidently and highly recommend them to anyone and everyone! Choose Birdsong and you will not be disappointed!!!

Choosing Jess and Genie to shoot our wedding was one of the easiest choices we made for our wedding. The duo was extremely talented, professional, and fun to work with on such a special occasion. Their vision for our engagement and wedding photos were completely aligned with ours, and the artistic quality that they brought to the table made all of our pictures truly incredible.

As Chicagoans, we were planning a small, destination wedding. Our ceremony was comprised of only 15 people, and each person present played a very important role in our ceremony. Jess and Genie successfully captured each moment and delivered breathtaking pictures of us, the bride and groom, but also our families and friends. The photos we received were outstanding quality, and Jess and Genie provided us so much more than what we expected! Each picture incorporated the emotion and joy of the day, along with the beauty of the location. Furthermore, we are able to easily reproduce all the images that were taken, as they provided us with several discs of all the images.

We are so thankful that Jess and Genie were able to participate in our wedding, and would not change one thing! We will always be able to remember the wonderful events of our wedding day because of their incredible talents.

Let's just start by saying that Jess is amazing and incredibly talented! Jess spent ~8 hours shooting our engagement pictures in Sedona and those turned out beautiful! Jess and Genie spent all day with us at The Boulders for our ceremony/reception; they were extremely professional and flexible, fun too! We are so excited to see our wedding photos and are confident they will exceed our expectations. So now that it has been 60 days, we received our pictures and they did exceed our expectations! They are so beautiful, I cannot wait to frame my entire wedding! I honesty have no idea where to start because there are so many great shots! I think it can often be challenging to capture people outside and everyone looks so soft. It has been two weeks now since we have seen our pictures and I look at them everyday, reliving our perfect wedding! Huge thanks to Jess and Genie for capturing our wedding; we cannot wait to use you again for something in the future....not sure what but we will find a reason!

Jess and Genie are absolutely the best choice when it comes to all your wedding photography needs! They were a true help throughout our entire wedding; including our engagement and day-after sessions as well as helping to keep us and our guests relaxed on our wedding day. We will cherish our images forever because of the perfect inclusion of our family, friends, and our beautiful wedding site. They captured our day in a way we could not have possibly imagined! We now have two new friends, not just wedding photographers. Thank you Jess and Genie!

Tip for brides-to-be: please remember to offer food to your vendors! A good rule is to have food available to vendors who work for more than 4 hours on your wedding day. Don't forget to ask their food preferences also. They are working hard for you and will appreciate the gesture.

Should you entrust Jess & Genie with taking your wedding photos? YES!

Here's why (short answer):
1. You will be awestruck by the photos you receive.
2. They make the being photographed fun and stress free.

Here's the long answer why:
Jess and Genie are by far the most professional and skilled photographers that I have worked with. They genuinely care about providing each and every client with an experience and photos that they will cherish forever. They photographed our wedding four months ago and our guests are STILL raving about how impressed they were. I am a wedding photographer, so of course the photos of our big day were one of the most important things to me, and I am awestruck by the photos we received. Jess and Genie went above and beyond our expectations in so many ways. They are truly dedicated to their work and it's obvious how much they love their job when you look at the quality of the photos they produce and the relationships they build with their clients. I am used to being behind a camera, so at first I was nervous about being photographed. But Jess and Genie became our friends and made me and my husband feel comfortable. We ended up having so much fun! Plus, we LOVE the way we look in the photos. They are pros with lighting and composition, they are constantly on the lookout for important moments to record, and they blend in to become part of the event in a very nonintrusive manner. Most importantly, they captured the emotion of our wedding in a deeply heartfelt way. My husband and I will forever be grateful that Jess and Genie helped us preserve the memories of our marriage celebration.

I highly recommend Birdsong photography (Jess and Genie) for your wedding.
Jess and Genie are both very professional and very talented photographers. In this day and age it takes more than that though, and this is where Jess and Genie excel. They are always very quick to respond to phone or email questions, they meet the timelines agreed upon, and they deliver a product that is above and beyond what they agree to provide.
Both my wife and I are very happy that we went with them, we love our pictures, and the whole experience. Everything was excellent.
My only suggestion for Jess and Genie is:
Raise your prices! Seriously!

We had booked this vendor for a January wedding and they were very flexible, professional, and paid full attention to detail. They had no extra charges when going anywhere within Arizona and they didn't charge you by the hour like most other photographers do... We were very happy with the service that they provided and we could tell from the very beginning that they had the passion and determination that no other photographer out there!

Jess and Genie are absolutely, 100% a class act! Not only are they extremely talented, but their customer service is SECOND TO NONE! This was evident from the first moment I spoke to Jess on the phone, as he called me shortly after submitted my inquiry online. He took the time to explain to me what to look for in a photographer, even if we chose not to go with him. Between the website photos and his charming personality and knowledge, how could I want to go anywhere else?! It was evident from that moment that they really, truly care and LOVE what they do...and that love is put into every shot that they take from the event through the tremendous amount of post-production work that they do!
We did our engagement photo shoot with them and the photos are breathtaking! (Please see us on their website, under “engagement” – we’re with the airplanes!) Jess and Genie genuinely listen and go above and beyond to accommodate your needs…battling crowds, enduring sunburns, precariously perching on ladders – whatever it took to get “THE SHOT”! Love it!
They were just as amazing on our wedding day! They were efficient and friendly; they mixed well with the guests and weren’t shy about directing friends/family to make sure we got all of the shots we wanted. They were with us for the duration again, too - bless their hearts! The pictures of course are absolutely stunning – I cried when I saw them because they are SO beautiful! Some of them look like magazine ads. Can I just say that I love the way I look, too? I have never felt so beautiful as I did looking at our pictures, I am SO proud to show them off!! They were really able to capture the scope of our wedding day and every special moment…along with some very fun moments, too! I HIGHLY recommend them, for not only are they the best in the business, they are extremely affordable as well. You will not find quality this high for so reasonable – don’t be duped by those fancy booths at the bridal shows!! I looked into many different photographers and they were either overcharging or severely lacking in the skills department. This is your wedding day, and your photos should be perfect!! Look no further, book Jess and Genie now while your date is still available – you will be SO happy that you did!!!

Jess and Genie are by far THE best photographers in AZ. Talk about getting your money's worth plus some~! While a lot of photographers charge a significant amount of money, don't let their budget friendly price fool you, I will gaurantee you that they will do 100X more than the other photgraphers out there. They showed up on our wedding day at 9am and did not leave until about 11pm, without charging us extra, they are truly there for you and your big day. They captured everything we wanted; they gave us all the 3000 raw images, along with their edited photos in color, black and white, web ready images, and images to print in either 4x6 and 8x10. They are friendly, professionals and most importantly an artist with their equipment and vision. We had our wedding in Tucson, at Skyline Country Club and we had the most amazing photos. Our package included a day after, or trash the dress session with Jess, a month later, and he did an awesome job to tie in the theme of our venue from our wedding day. We met with Jess before the wedding, Jess and Genie were with us early on our wedding day until late evening and a month later for our trash the dress. They respond to all emails and phone calls in a timely manner so that coordination is as smooth as possible. I highly reccomend them for your wedding or next event!

Jess and Genie, are by far one of the most professional people I have worked with. My wife and I began our search for photographers while I was deployed and she came upon this one. Due to the lack of internet I could not see their website, but the price had intrigued me. The photographers I reviewed prior to the internet going out, their prices were outrageous. Trusting my wife to be at the time, we decided to go with them and it has been the best decision ever. Through emails and phone calls we kept in touch and a month prior to the wedding we finally met with Jess at our venue so that he can get an idea of how things were going to flow. He was most accomadating to my schedule since I left quite a bit prior to the wedding. On the day of the wedding they showed up at 9am to photograph my wife and her bridesmaids getting ready, they are great to sticking to the timeline and everything went on without any hic-ups. THey stayed with us until about 11pm. The end result was absolutely amazing. THey provided us with 3000raw images taken that day, the finished product of 307images in color, black and white, web ready images, 4x6 images and 8x10. The 307 images they chose were great and retell the story of our wedding. Our package included a day after shoot, or trash the dress and Jess met us up a month later to take that. Their knack for getting the right picture is amazing and both wedding day and day after shoot were awesome. All of our friends and family are ranting and raving about our photo and of course that would not be without Jess and Genie. We had our wedding at Skyline Country Club and all the pictures are amazing. I highly recommend Birdsong as your wedding photographers and future events!

Jess and Genie were AMAZING photographers at my wedding!! The photographs are absolutely beautiful and more gorgeous than I imagined! They were extremely professional and fun from the moment that I met them, to the meetings prior to the wedding, to the day of the wedding, and the weeks following the wedding where they put in so much effort to make sure my photos were absolutely perfect. Both made sure that they were available for all of the major events of the wedding, but did not obstruct the view for all of my guests. We received SO MANY compliments about their genuineness, their availability to take requested photos and their amazing ability to take gorgeous photos! I cannot say it enough that we thank Jess and Genie for their fabulous work to truly capture the special moments of the day for us to re-live over and over again as we look at the photos. Thank you SO MUCH Jess and Genie!!!

Jess and Genie are amazing photographers! When looking for a photographer, we fell in love with the pictures on their website. Within the first 5 minutes of meeting with Jess, we knew his enthusiasm, creativity, and personality would be a perfect fit for our wedding. On our wedding day, Jess and Genie started taking pictures at 9am and continued until late in the evening. They have great personalities which helps put people at ease and enables them to capture great moments. Our pictures are better than we ever could have imagined! Our pictures are not only creative and artistic, but they truly encompass the feelings and emotions of the day. Hiring Jess and Genie was the best decision we made regarding our wedding, and we would highly recommend them to anyone!

Jess and Genie from Birdsong Photography were the absolute best! Super friendly, easy to work with, understood what I wanted and were just great to have at the wedding! Their website quickly put them at the top of my list and then speaking with Jess and learning how committed they are to good photography and the price made me choose them. They will make you feel and look like movie stars! Highly recommend!

Jess and Genie were amazing! If you want the type of pictures that you see in magazines that take your breath away, Birdsong wedding photography is for you. Your ceremony generally lasts for 15 minutes but your wedding pictures are forever. I looked long and hard to find the right photographers. Jess was always available and knowledgeable when I called him with questions or for recommendations. While Jess brings a professional and artistic edge, Genie brings the fun and feminine angle. Visit their website and you will quickly see how amazing and artistic their photos are. I can not recommend them highly enough

Being a photographer, I thought it would be difficult to select a photographer that met my expectations. As soon as I saw their website, I knew I had found them. From first contact until the delivery of our photos I have been nothing but pleasantly surprised and impressed with the quality and professionalism I was provided with. Not only did they meet my expectations, they blew them out of the water! Jess and Genie are two extremely gifted photographers with a wonderful disposition and a great eye for detail. They kept me well informed about all of the details, from little to big. When they showed up, with a smile on their face, we had a blast with them as they captured our special day. They captured everything I wanted and more! Everyone that sees our wedding photos winds up with a tear in their eye, and can't stop complementing on how simply spectacular they are, and that should speak for itself. I wouldn't have had it any other way, Jess and Genie truly are the best out there. I can't wait to work with them again for my "trash the dress" session and future milestones to come.

Jess and Genie are absolutely incredible. I had visited with several photographers prior to meeting with Jess and Genie and as soon as I met them, I knew they were the right choice... they even impressed my mother (sometimes hard to do!) After reviewing their portfolio and meeting with them, I was certain that our wedding pictures would be great. From the moment I met Jess and Genie to after the big day, they have been such a pleasure to work with. They set the bar so high, that I was expecting great photos... but they went above and beyond we have AMAZING photos. All of our friends keep asking, "Who was your photographer!!!???" Our picture are stunning and the emotions of the day are perfectly documented. In addition to absolutely wonderful work, Jess and Genie are professional, kind, patient, creative and organized. I give them my highest recommendation and hope to work with them in the near future! You will not be disappointed with your pictures or the experience!!

Birdsong Photography Arizona – Jess Vogelsang and Genie McAuthor
Jess and Genie-
Upon our initial meeting noticed your relaxed confidence and positive energy.
You have a beautiful way to capture the imagination. During our photo shoots and interacting with you on our wedding day, your perception had meaning and feeling. When we received our photos knowing that people see the same things differently, you conveyed images nothing short of amazing. You are the MASTER! Absolute incredible, beautiful, beyond words, so unique, amazing, exquisite, talented, should I go on, I can... such an honor to have met you and Genie!!!!! We are mesmerized with our wedding photos!!!
Our encounter with Birdsong know that they have a wonderful work ethic, you have made the right decision, and that you have met someone with a incredible insight.
Thank You Jess and Genie!!!

Jess and Genie were wonderful to work with. From the moment we hired them to the day of the wedding, they were helpful and professional. No matter what we always felt comfortable calling them and getting their recommendations for a stress free day with great pictures. In fact, we loved their work so much we ended up using them for several other photo shoots, like one with my mom for mother's day. Out of all of our wedding vendors, they were the most reliable and trustworthy, and we really felt comfortable having them at the wedding. In fact, at that point they felt more like guests at our wedding than vendors.

Jess and Genie at Birdsong Wedding Photography are amazing and we could not have wished for a better experience on our wedding day. They are sharp, imaginative, creative and artistic. They have been able to capture that ' tender, intimate and emotional moment' that words could not express on our wedding day through their camera lens. We can not thank Jess and Genie enough for all their hard work, and believe me they worked very hard making sure the lighting was 'just right' running up and down a hillside of rock to capture that perfect picture at sunset. Jess and Genie are not your typical wedding photographers, they are the best up and coming professionals that wedding photography has seen. Thank you Jess and Genie, you have been able to take the love that we have for each other, capture and express it in your work.

Jess and Genie are very talented photographers and their personalities make you feel at ease, especially if you are initially uncomfortable (like me!). They guide you through the entire process and have great ideas. For example, we had our engagement photos completed by Birdsong as well as our wedding. All we knew was that we wanted our engagement photos taken in Sedona and Jess immediately knew of great places to take us. The backdrops for the photos were incredible!!! It was like taking a guided tour of Sedona! Jess even has an Off-road Jeep to be able to go to places that no other photographers could go. Jess was also a great coach and was able to direct us of how to pose more naturally. The pictures on our wedding day were also spectacular and they did not miss a thing. Since there are 2 of them, the took some pictures that may have been missed if there were just 1 photographer. I listed a 4 out of 5 on flexibility only because they are in such demand that they are very busy (rightfully so because they are so good). Jess was very good about responded via email and explaining the plan in detail. I highly recommend Birdsong and I am so glad that we were able to have them document our special day. The only thing I wish I would have done is request more "natural pose" photographs as if it were just my husband and & I together without posing. Regardless, I love our photographs and am so relieved that they turned out so well. Birdsong is amazing!
