I don't even know where to begin with how amazing and gorgeous Jenelle's work is and how great of a person she is. Jenelle had done both of my brothers weddings and once I saw her work I knew I needed her for my wedding!!! She is one of the coolest and down to earth people that I have ever met. She knew exactly what we wanted without ever having to tell her. She makes the whole process comfortable and easy for everyone involved. She really got to know us which also made everything that much easier and laid back. Her pictures are by far the best that I have ever seen and I couldn't be happier to have had her be our photographer! I have had so many people tell me how amazing our pictures were while she displayed them at the reception of my wedding! I will 100% be using her in the future for any pictures that I will need!!! Her work is flawless and absolutely amazing!!!!!

Jenelle was so amazing to work with. On time, very professional and extremely talented, she captured the most wonderful moments of our wedding without being intrusive. Our photos came out so beautiful, they could easily be published in a magazine, that's how amazing they are! Jenelle and her assistant were both very friendly and easy to work with, and they accommodated all our requests. My friends and family were all impressed and love the photos from our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a great photographer. Thank you Jenelle for being a part of our special day!

A picture tells a thousand words when the simple picture of a cake captured our attention. While surfing the net in a mindless daze of information overload, it was that simple cake picture that grabbed our attention to seek out more information of the eye behind the lens. This journey leads us to a coffee visit with Jenelle, which could have lasted for hours. Her quiet, yet warm personality embraced passion and excitement of her love of photography.

Her experience shined as our intimate moments were captured during our engagement session and our wedding day. Her friendly smile and caring heart makes you feel at ease on one of the biggest days of your life. Her professionalism is unmatched and her personal touch embraces your life.

Not one small detail ever gets over looked as seen in her finished product. Her unique mix of photojournalism, portraiture, and art tells a story that all can cherish. Her work not only tells a story, but it captures the feeling to allow you to relive the moment time and time again.

As the mother of the bride, I must say I had very high expectations for the pictures of my only daughter's wedding. Jenelle not only delivered beautiful pictures, that captured a once in a lifetime event, but the artistry exceeded everything we could have possibly imagined. She handles herself very professionally, while still making everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera. We were thrilled with the outcome of her work and would recommend her to any one looking to have one of the best photographers you could hire for your special day.

Words cannot express how INCREDIBLE Jenelle Kappe is - not only as a photographer but as a person, too! We found Jenelle through our venue (Bayonet Farm) and absolutely fell in love with her photos.

We truly enjoyed working with Jenelle, from our engagement session to the day-of craziness. She was flexible when we couldn't decide where to have our engagement photos, and she was incredibly efficient when shooting both our engagement and wedding photos. She even got us back on schedule on the big day when we were running about an hour behind! So she was pretty much a God send!

We fell in love with Jenelle's eye for photography and her easy going spirit, and she single-handedly made our wedding feel incredibly intimidate and special. Photography was one of the most important factors of our wedding and we are so pleased with how it turned out. Everything feels so unique and premium, and we're thankful for that!

So yes - can't say enough about her. If you can have Jenelle photograph your wedding - DO IT! You won't regret it!

There are not enough words to accurately describe how talented Jenelle is at what she does. Her work is gorgeous, appears effortless and looks stunning. When searching for wedding photographers, I was drawn to her style of photography immediately. Unlike most wedding photographers, Jenelle has a distinct style and her work is more than just a wedding photograph, it is beautiful art. She has an incredible eye and is extremely helpful in directing the wedding day photographs. Having seen a sample the very day of my wedding of some of the photographs that she took, I can very honestly say that she is worth every penny, if not much more. During the process, she was the vendor that gave me the most confidence, was the most flexible and kind and was the most helpful. Jenelle has an easy-going attitude which makes her great to work with. I would highly recommend her (in fact I already have) and I will absolutely be contacting her in the future for important events!
I would also like to note that her "second shooter" was just as sweet and they were a joy to have at my wedding. If you haven't chosen a photographer for your wedding or event, please check out her work! It's phenomenal!!!

Jenelle Kappe is not only an amazing photographer but her photographs are works of art. She has an eye like no other I've seen. I came across Jenelle's work on Facebook, she had done a surprise engagement shoot for someone. I fell in with the pictures immediately. The same night I met with her, I booked her right away! She is so sweet, laid back and quickly becomes a friend. She gives off such a positive energy :) She has a way of making you feel so comfortable behind the camera, like she's not even there. Her direction of our wedding day photographs flowed so effortlessly. Jenelle is worth every penny and then some. Our guests complimented on how her work looks just out of a magazine, and that it does. We had friends who were unable to attend our wedding, look at the wonderful blog post she did of our wedding day and say how in going through the pictures they felt like they were right there with us. She captures every detail and every moment!! We can now relive our day over and over again thanks to Jenelle. Her second shooter Jacqui was also a pleasure to work with. They made a great team. They were my right hand girls when it came to other wedding related issues too!

I can not recommend Jenelle enough!! If you want beautiful, timeless memories of your big day, book her now! We love you Jenelle and can not thank you enough!

I don't even know where to begin... Jenelle is perfection. Not only are her photographs flawless, but she is the sweetest thing on Earth. Our wedding photos are gorgeous - Her style is stunning and her eye for detail is impeccable. If you're really into photography and are looking for more than just the traditional wedding photograph - Jenelle is your girl. You will still get all the wedding portraits you're looking for, but you will also get artistic shots, emotional shots, candid shots - and just that one photo that makes you go, "wow." Jenelle is extremely easy to work with - She wants to get to know you as a couple - She wants you to feel comfortable with the camera. She wants you to laugh and most importantly, just have fun and forget she's even there. And she does just that. I can honestly say that not only did I get the most amazing wedding photos, but I gained a friend too. Thank you for everything, Jenelle!

I do not have enough good things to say about Jenelle's work. I have always been a fan of hers and would always follow the blogs and wedding pictures she would post thinking to myself "no questions asked, when the time comes THIS is who I am using". My (now) husband proposed on a Sunday afternoon and I was in touch with Jenelle that Friday asking for her availability. It was a running joke throughout the 9 months leading up to the wedding that we "chose our wedding date around Jenelle's availability". Well, it's also the truth. Being 29 my facebook newsfeed has been flooded with friends wedding pictures for the past 6 years so comparatively speaking I knew EXACTLY what I wanted and also what I didn't want. I told her when we sat down together a few weeks before the wedding that I didn't want staged, posed pictures. I just wanted her to capture our big day as it was happening. She did exactly that and didn't miss a thing. Not only that but she was such a great friend that day. Everything from holding my lipstick for me and handing it over whenever she was about to get a great shot to make sure I looked fabulous to running over and grabbing the hair tie off of my wrist (habit i guess...never leave home without an extra!) before I walked down the aisle to running and finding a tide pen after my horse slobbered on my wedding dress (yes that actually happened and she also caught it on camera!). Thank you, Jenelle for capturing my big day just as I have been imagining it ever since I was a little girl. We are forever grateful.

Jenelle is an AMAZING photographer! Our pictures turned out fabulous! Jenelle has an amazing personality which took all the stress out of the picture taking process and made it fun. She even drove out (at least an hour) to meet with me on multiple occasions so we could talk about what I was looking for and to check out my venue and places to take pictures near by. She is extremely talented and professional. Honestly, if you don't like her, the problem is probably with you! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

When you think of your wedding day you want perfection, let's be serious WHAT BRIDE DOESN'T?! Especially since the day is over before you know it and all you have left are the memories the photographers have captured for you. For this exact reason, I knew I had to have THE BEST!! I fell in LOVE with Jenelle Kappe Photography at a Chicago Bridal EXPO. The second I walked up to her gallery booth I knew IMMEDIATELY that I had to have her!
Jenelle is very flexible to work with and consistent with emails/phone calls. She is friendly, kind and always gives her BEST with each client. The day of our wedding Jenelle arrived at the hotel capturing every memory and momento possible, even things that I would never have thought of! She even helped out when getting me into my dress! Jenelle truly put her ALL into my wedding, as I can see she does with all her other weddings. After having our engagement session and wedding done by her, I truly feel that I can call Jenelle a friend. She recently sent me a blog full of wedding teaser photos from our big day, I couldn't help but shed happy tears. There is nothing more special than the memories captured from that day, and I owe it all to my amazing photographer! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE!!! Enclosed is the link to our wedding blog .. just to show off how amazing her work truly is!

When you think of your wedding day you want perfection, let's be serious WHAT BRIDE DOESN'T?! Especially since the day is over before you know it and all you have left are the memories the photographers have captured for you. For this exact reason, I knew I had to have THE BEST!! I fell in LOVE with Jenelle Kappe Photography at a Chicago Bridal EXPO. The second I walked up to her gallery booth I knew IMMEDIATELY that I had to have her!
Jenelle is very flexible to work with and consistent with emails/phone calls. She is friendly, kind and always gives her BEST with each client. The day of our wedding Jenelle arrived at the hotel capturing every memory and momento possible, even things that I would never have thought of! She even helped out when getting me into my dress! Jenelle truly put her ALL into my wedding, as I can see she does with all her other weddings. After having our engagement session and wedding done by her, I truly feel that I can call Jenelle a friend.

We cannot speak highly enough of Jenelle! She made our day so very special - I think I asked her if my makeup looked ok before I asked my bridesmaids! I have never felt more beautiful or had more fun in front of a camera in my entire life. She immediately puts her subjects at ease and has a keen eye for the creative shots. She's open to suggestion and even tolerated our aggressive party people and my sailor mouth! We just saw some of our photos on the blog and I am literally in love with each and every one. This lady is the whole package and I can't wait to call her for other major life events to come.

We were very very happy our pictures are great and we have memories forever due to her great work. She wasn't just a photographer, she made sure everything was perfect on my day, always touching up my dress. Her work came out fantastic album, slide show, case. I don't have works to thank you her. Jenelle is now helping me with my thank you notes.

We had not met Jenelle in person until we were all sitting on Harbour Island—the location of our destination wedding. Before that first meeting, all communciation had taken place via email; and we were just a bit nervous about giving such an important job (photographing our wedding) to someone we hadn't even yet shook hands with. From the first time we sat cross-legged on pillows across the table from Jenelle, we knew that we made the right decision. Her questions were all focused on what we wanted to portray with our wedding shoot: which days we wanted photographed, the general look and feel of the finished product, and our personal comfort with standing in front of a camera. From that point forward, we didn't have to think about a thing. One of Jenelle's exceptional talents—beyond pure skillful use of a camera—is listening to what her clients want and then translating it into a set of photos that tell a stylised, highly-artistic story. On all the days that we were shooting, we never felt awkwardly posed, pressured, or uncomfortable. Part of that has to do with Jenelle's comforting personality, and part of that has to do with her skill and belief in her own work. As for the end product, we could not be happier with the wedding photographs that we received, and we look at them to this day thinking: "Was that really us? Did we really look that happy? Did we really look that good??? We must have!" It's not a trick of the lens—Jenelle is an expert at capturing the right photograph at the right moment, and we are truly, truly thankful that she was there with us to share in our special wedding day (week). Our communciation now is worlds apart from the email conversations we had when we first reached out—by the end of the wedding celebration we were all having hugs and sorry to say goodbye. Thankfully, we have the photographs to remember what is undeniably the most fun adventure of our lives thus far, and Jenelle's contact details are set in stone in our address books for any life event we want documented in the future. With wholehearted gratitude: thank you Jenelle Kappe Photography.

From the moment you meet with Janelle to the day of the wedding she honestly makes sure she gets to know you, what you want, and is always flexible and available if you have any questions or need to switch things up. Her photography is fun, intimate, and truly yours and yours alone.

I recommend her to anyone really wanting to a truly special touch to their day with probably one of the sweetest most genuine people you will ever meet!

Jenelle was wonderful, easy and professional to work with. The day of our wedding my shy husband told me he would only take twenty pictures and then he was done. And he was serious.....Two thousand pictures later he was smiling, laughing and having fun! Jenelle made it easy and comfortable for us. Her photography was breathtaking and captured all the special moments of our wedding.

If I could I would give Jenelle Kappe 10 stars out of 5. She was amazing!!! I am not sure what I would rave more about...her willingness to work with our crazy schedules (and a hurricane on our wedding day), her VERY reasonable prices, how much fun she is to work with, or the absolutely exquisite pictures she takes!!! Jenelle captures the "hidden moments" with her style of photography which in turn provides the happy couple, their family and friends such special keepsakes of so many wonderful memories! Book Jenelle now!!!

Jenelle was not only a true blessing to our wedding but to anyone's. I can not speak highly enough. From the very beginning she been professional and kept the lines of communication open and clear. We had a scheduled shot list, discussed logistics, and followed up every step of the way. She knew when to give us space and when to grab us for once in a lifetime shots. She went above and beyond and we could not be more thrilled with our photos. Our photos are beyond stunning, they are incredible. We can't stop looking at them over and over. Her talent is one of a kind. We loved her excitement when she knew she had a great shot, and her overall love of the wedding scene. I can't stop thanking her for the priceless gift she's given us.

Jenelle was an absolute gift to me on my wedding day. There are so many details to be concerned about at the last minute, but with Jenelle and her crew, I had not one hesitation and knew that what they captured would be perfect. Jenelle took control of her "set" very gently and was completely out of the way. She kept us all calm and just let the day unfold seamlessly, while being there with her camera for every moment. Jenelle's photos speak for themselves, but she has an eye for gentle beauty and mixed the delicate warmth and love of our day with the beaming happiness and excitement of everyone involved. The bridal party was all commenting on how wonderful she was and I can't recommend her enough to everyone. She set up a slideshow at the wedding of the best pictures from the morning and church and posted some photos on her blog just days after the wedding! Throughout the whole process she was immediately responsive and proactive, which let me just answer her questions instead of chase her around like I had to with a lot of other vendors.

In short, Jenelle doesn't just take photos of your wedding, she's a true artist and I would absolutely book her now while she's incredibly affordable!!
