Jenelle is one of the most creative and talented photographers I've ever met! Planning a wedding from hundreds of miles away is never easy, but Jenelle always made herself accessible by phone or email. The weather forecast was calling for rain in the few days leading up to our wedding, and we had planned all outdoor pictures. I sent Jenelle several emails to develop an alternate plan, and I was amazed at how a woman I had never met calmed my fears and immediately put me at ease. Her easy-going personality did not change on the day of the wedding. Jenelle was not only an amazing photographer that day, but she also handled any glitch (my florist was late), was there to fix my dress, hold my lipstick, etc., so my husband and I could enjoy every waking moment of our special day. From the day of our initial consultation to our wedding day, it was such a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend Jenelle without hesitation!! I promise you will not be disappointed.

I don't even know where to begin! Aside from being such an amazingly talented photographer, Jenelle was truly a life saver on our wedding day. With 20 people in our bridal party, we were not an easy group to coordinate but Jenelle made it look effortless. She was always there to carry my dress, keep me calm and even run around to blow out candles at my house before we left. She really cares about what she does and it shows through her professionalism and beautiful creativity. From start to finish, she made eveything so simple. Thank you so much for everything!

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!
