I am a Boston-based photographer specializing in weddings and portraits. I get a ridiculous amount of enjoyment from giving people images that they love--whether they are ones that document the emotions and in-between moments on their wedding day or ones that capture them in their element, being themselves or with the people they can't live without.

In terms of my work, I take an unobtrusive, documentary-style approach to shooting. While some photographers focus on capturing how the day looks, I also try my best to capture the feel of the day and the emotions and fleeting moments between people that are often overlooked; after all, these are the images that your family, and its generations to come, will look back on and cherish!

Jen was an absolute pleasure to work with and took wonderful photos. She was organized, considerate, and incredibly nice. On the day of the wedding, I rarely noticed her -- and that's a good thing. She knew that her job was to take photos without being intrusive.

Jen's strength is definitely taking candid photos, and I do wish she were slightly more instructive when it came to the posed shots (both for the wedding and the engagement shoot). But this is a very minor complaint that can be easily fixed if you just tell her what you want. She has a great eye and gave us many amazing photos from our wedding.

And a last note - we were the first same-sex couple that Jen had worked with (I think), and I was very happy to see her comfort and ease with us, our families, and friends.

Jen was a wonderful find! Although she was a 'newer' photographer, her style and overall demeanor were incredibly profesional She was great to work with and was genuinely excited to take our engagement and wedding photos.

We were definitely looking for a photographer who wasn't obvious (I hate that feeling of the photograph taking distracting from the moment). I have no idea how Jen managed it but I really don't recall seeing her or realizing she was there through our entire wedding; clearly she was though because the shots we got were amazing.

Compared to area photopgraphers, her price blew us away; she is a great deal! I can say without a doubt the value for cost was incredible.

Overall, Jen was a delight and we were extremely happy with her photos, talents, and personality.

Jen Ing was recommended by a co-worker and came at a very reasonable price when we booked her services for our wedding this past May. We felt like we had lucked out finding someone we could afford and that took photos in the style we were looking for; relaxed, natural, and full of emotion.

Jen was very responsive to our emails and always easy to get in touch with. We met with her twice before the wedding to talk about some specific shots and the feel of what we wanted in our pictures. She showed us samples or her work and I enjoyed following her blog and seeing more and more of her work while waiting for our big day!

On May 1st, she arrived bright and early to our wedding in Portsmouth, NH. She was flexible with what we suggested, took as many formal portraits as we asked, and during the ceremony and reception, focused on capturing natural moments without staging anything artificial.

When we received the pictures a month after our wedding, all I could say was wow! She really exceeded my expectations! The pictures are full of emotion and really captured what an amazing day we had. There are so many I love, it's been hard to choose what to print and frame. I highly recommend Jen for engagement, wedding, or any photos you are looking to have done. She is responsive, sweet, talented, and very reasonably priced.

Jen is great! If you love the photo-journalistic style, she's a great find at a fantastic price. She really captures moments without being the least bit invasive. Honestly, once we got to the reception, I didn't even realize she was there until she came to say goodbye when she left! :)

She was very flexible throughout the entire process regarding timing, places/locations we wanted pictures, etc -- she definitely let us have our say while at the same time infusing her artistic eye into it all. Definitely check out her blog to get a sense of how great she really is! She has a quick turn-around time for getting your pictures to you too!

Jen was great and the photos were gorgeous! I received so many compliments on how lovely the images turned out.
What was really impressive about Jen was how unobtrusive she was. Most people, me included, didn't even notice she was there. I've been to many wedding where the photographer was rather militant and always in the bride and groom's faces. Jen was not like that at all. In fact, before I saw the photos, I was a little nervous she might have missed things as we really didn't notice her. But she didn't! Jen captured everything, and she captured everything with extraordinary beauty!

After searching through many, many Boston photographer blogs and websites we decided to hire Jen Ing to do our engagement session for us because I really like her style (clean, bright, stunning photos with a little bit of an edge) and she was very affordable and flexible. We were extremely happy with our decision! Jen met us at the location early on a Saturday morning for our session (which lasted almost two hours!). She was totally up for anything and had some great ideas for shots. I was on a tight deadline to get our save the dates out and Jen gave us the image CD in plenty of time. The photos turned out great, we've received loads of complements from our friends and family!

While planning my wedding, I was very, very careful about choosing when to spend money and when to skimp. A wedding is, after all, just one day, and I believe that spending more money on your wedding day will not make you happier, nor will it make your marriage better; it will just cost you more money. However, I also had family and friends flying in from across the country, and didn't want to subject them to an informal, unremarkable event. So I wanted our wedding to be as enjoyable and luxurious as possible for our guests, at the lowest possible cost to us, without seeming cheap. That being said, I am very happy that we hired Jen Ing.

Jen was an integral part of our luxury/budget-fusion wedding, and fit exactly what I was looking for. She is an extremely earnest, professional, and artistic photographer who, astoundingly, charges quite reasonable rates for the quality of her work. There are tons of "wedding photographers" in Boston, but Jen has the best mix of talent and affordability. She works hard to make a name for herself, and it shows.

The digital images we received from Jen were absolutely beautiful. The lighting in each image had been adjusted to look very natural, even though the images were taken in very different locations -- a bright hair salon, inside a dark chapel, outside the chapel in the shade or in sunlight, inside an observatory during the sunset, the dark dance floor. She took care to move us when she saw that the lighting was inadequate. She took hundreds of formal portraits of us with every single guest. I can't think of a single instant that Jen "missed" during the wedding, that I would have wanted her to capture. She took perfect photos of both the bouquet and garter tosses, with objects mid-air. She took very elegant candid photos of my grandparents. She captured unstaged, romantic moments between us; the list goes on. We were thrilled with the photos. At the end of the day, after all the beautiful memories, and all of the hard work, all you really have are the photographs, and they were worth every penny!

I was introduced to Jen Ing by a friend who had previously hired Jen to shoot their engagement photos and raved about her style and skill. I was also convinced after seeing their photos and booked Jen for our engagement session. I was extremely happy with how the photos turned out. They had such bright and airy quality and perfectly captured the bond between us. The editing was just right. It added a professional touch to the photos, while still preserving their natural beauty. I think Jen has tremendous talent and is such an aspiring artist. And the price for her service is extremely affordable. I would highly recommend Jen to any couples looking for a wedding photographer (especially those on a budget).

Jen Ing took our engagement photos last spring and did an INCREDIBLE job. I am usually not very comfortable in front of the camera, and I rarely like pictures of myself, but when I opened up the cd she sent us and looked at our photos for the first time I was totally blown away. It wasn't just that they were flattering, beautifully shot pictures, which they were, it was they really captured US- the way we are together at this moment in time, as we prepared to take a really important and meaningful step in our lives. It means so much to have such a beautiful keepsake from this time and we are so grateful we chose Jen to create that for us. Really, we could not love our photos more.

I was a June 2009 bride and had searched high and low for a photographer in Boston area long before that. I am (still) obsessed with wedding and
engagement pictures that capture the moments and essence of the brides and grooms. I am always browsing photos on Oncewed, StylemePretty, as well as Jen's photo blog, and many many other wedding websites. I had to say I am
so happy to have found Jen and did an engagement session with her in May
before our wedding. She's so nice and fun, made the session go really well, and did I mention she's always on time? Jen gave us the pictures
exactly after 2 weeks as promised, and we were so thrilled looking at
them. Had we had our wedding here in Boston, we would definitely booked
Jen for our wedding day! I also recommended Jen to a friend of mine in
Boston area, and she was just equally happy with her own engagement
session with Jen. I would love to recommend Jen to any bride without any
