Jenny was my cousin’s photographer two years ago. In that wedding, I was the maid of honor and I remember my cousin gushing about how great Jenny was after they met her, and again after their engagement shoot. When I finally met her at their wedding, it had already felt like I knew her! From the minute the pictures started, I was so comfortable. Because of the comfort I felt with her and the beautiful pictures she produced, I knew I would not want anyone else for my own wedding!

When it was time for my husband and I to look for photographers, we didn’t! Jenny was our pick, with no questions asked!

We met at Laguna Beach for our engagement shoot and she was so funny and relaxed, she helped us bring out our best and most natural selves. Our pictures were beautiful and better than I could ever imagine!!

Although I didn’t think possible, our wedding day was even better than our engagement shoot. When I showed up to the venue, I was nervous- but that didn’t last long! Again, Jenny’s calming and relaxed personality just grounded me. She helped with our first look- it was perfect! My husband and I decided to have a LARGE wedding party of 20… and Jenny and her assistant had no problem wrangling them and keeping them all in line (literally and figuratively) and happy!

Jenny is the best, but you don’t need me to tell you that, her pictures speak for themselves!! Thank you Jenny for perfect and beautiful pictures. We are so lucky to have had you.

FIVE STARS across the board! I can't say enough good things about the quality of Jenny's photography, how fun she is to work with, and how well she met my expectations. Clearly, making the decision to book a wedding photographer who'll document your big day and capture all memories in what you hope will be the most perfectly beautiful way is a pretty big deal. Jenny was actually the very first one my husband and I met/talked to and we loved her personality and the way she talked about her background and photography process so much that we didnt even feel like we had to interview anyone else..! Just check out her blog and see her work for yourself.
At the engagement session Jenny provided direction without forcing poses and encouraged us to be ourselves and have fun. I'm not the most graceful in front of the camera but Jenny was able to talk me/us into looking like supermodels. Our first look and wedding portrait sessions went just as smoothly. During the ceremony and reception Jenny photographed a lot of our small, intimate moments without ever being obtrusvie (or, for that matter, disrupting our guests or their views of the action). I'm poring over the ~800 pics we've gotten and cannot believe the little treasures she was able to get a shot of.
Really, don't look any further. Jenny will make your photography dreams come true!

FYI, as of this past month Alders Photography is now Jenny Smith & Co. (Also, FYI, I actually found Jenny thru weddingwire.com.. so, thanks weddingwire.com!)

Wow! I don’t even know where to start. Jenny is a stellar photographer, but was also an incredible source of support during our big day. She and her team were a calming presence in what could have been a very stressful and overwhelming day. Jenny and Jordan made getting ready fun; we even had a good time during the obligatory family photos. Jenny made sure that our couples shots never felt stagey or forced. She truly understood that if we were comfortable and in-the-moment, our photos would turn out beautifully. Jenny did an excellent job of utilizing our surroundings and creating the perfect inspiration. Jenny encouraged us to be ourselves and perfectly captured the intimacy and fun of our special day.

Alders Photography is the absolute best!

LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF WORKING WITH JENNY SMITH!!! She is the best. We decided to do an engagement photo shoot and it was one of the best decisions we made. It got us familiar with her style of shooting. Jenny really has a great creative eye! She was really attentive through out the whole planing process even letting me borrow some props for my wedding day. I seriously know that hiring her was one of the best choices i made through the planing process. We received a sneak peek of our wedding a few days after and the pics were amazing. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos!!!

There is a reason Jenny has a perfect score, no she did not pay us or offer HomeTown Buffet coupons, Jenny is truly a 5 star photographer. Planning and producing a wedding is harder than people can really imagine. I mean how many times have you ever thrown a party for a 100+ people? There are just a lot of "moving parts" to a wedding and while the process is worth it, it can be overwhelming and stressful. Having Jenny on the Jindra/Sawyer Wedding Team, made the process easier.

Our first meeting was love at first sight. We got to see examples of her work and she clearly explained her process and style. Throughout the planning she had ridiculously quick response time to emails and was generously flexible when scheduling our engagement shoot.

During our wedding, she effortlessly took charge of the group shots, organizing everyone in a kind and efficient manner. Then for the rest of the night she was like a stealthy, photographer ninja, slipping in and out of the shadows, barely detectable. (Later my grandmother was surprised to see many beautiful shots of her and I together, because she had insisted that "no one took any pictures of [her].") Did I mention that Jenny also stood in the rain, taking pictures soaking wet because my ceremony got rained out? Yep, she is a ninja.

You really only have to look at her website to see the extent of her talent. Her work is exquisite. Not only does she capture the details and the people, she captures the feelings and emotions. Of course I have 100's of beautiful shots, but some of my favorites are of my bridesmaids laugh-crying during our ceremony, the "behind the scenes" shots of the caterers in the kitchen, the shy flower girl and my husband lettin' it all hang out on the dance floor at the end of the night.

Not only is she a talented photographer, she is a little red-headed ray of sunshine and a joy to be around. Without a doubt 5 STARS!

Jenny was such a wonderful photographer for our wedding. From our very first meeting with Jenny, we knew we didn't want to even meet with anyone else. We felt so comfortable around her, and she is so incredibly knowledgable about her craft. You can tell that she takes great pride in her work. We are so incredibly happy with our photos - both engagement and wedding. On top of everything, she was incredibly prompt, friendly, and helped me with any questions I had about the wedding planning process.

I cannot say enough good things about Alders. Jenny and Melanie were incredibly warm, engaging, and professional from our first meeting to the end of our reception. They listened to what we were looking for in our wedding photography and clearly explained their style and different options. We ended up selecting the package with Melanie as our lead photographer and were incredibly pleased with our choice.

Melanie was a joy to work with. She made us very comfortable at our UCLA engagement shoot, and we genuinely had a fun time despite our original nerves. She really put us at ease and allowed us to be ourselves. Our engagement photos turned out beautifully and the engagement book was a wonderful, memorable guest book for our wedding day. We got so many compliments!

Planning the wedding photography with Jenny and Melanie was very easy. We met with Jenny the week before the wedding to hammer out the final details. As always, she was on top of everything which gave us great peace of mind throughout the lead up to the wedding. Not to mention that Jenny’s feedback about the day-of timeline and photos were incredibly helpful and definitely made the day run smoother.

Melanie and her assistant photographer were fantastic on the day of the wedding. They worked their butts off and got the mix of details, bride and groom, family, and friend pictures we were looking for. They also did a great job of capturing but not interfering with the wedding, it was amazing to look back at the photos and think “I didn’t even know they were there when that happened!” By the end of the night, we felt like we were friends with Melanie and were so happy to have her at our wedding.

Most importantly, the photos were gorgeous and went up quickly. Their online site makes it the pictures easy to share and download for FREE which was truly appreciated by our guests.

Thank you Jenny and Melanie!!

Hiring Jenny Smith to shoot our wedding and engagement photos was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. Hands down.

We ended up with photos that we LOVE. Jenny's photojournalistic style captured our wedding day in a really spectacular way. Plus she's got this infectious personality that is buoyant. When we were shooting both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, it was impossible not to have fun.

The nitty gritty: Jenny was responsive to any and all emails or phone calls. We initially met with her to learn about her business and her style, and we were sold. She had a handle on all situations at the wedding. She helped wrangle in all the relatives and get them together for all the family photos. We received all of our photo files so now we have a huge repository of high-res images our family and friends can download and print for free. The turnaround from wedding day to delivered image files was two weeks as promised, and we got to see a sneak peek on Jenny's blog almost immediately.

A great big thank you to Alders Photography for giving us an incredible memento of our wedding day!

If you love photojournalistic photography or just natural and beautiful photos, then this is the photographer you need. Jenny is a sweet and kind person. Her personality flows through her photos. She creates works of art from the weddings she photographs. If you don't have a videographer, no worries, Jenny will tell the story for you. After all, books were here long before video's were, and technology will always change, but that cherished album/photo will always carry more value.

I loved Jenny! She is amazing. Her work is awesome and she has great energy. I planned my wedding remotely and interviewed several photographers. I could tell from the first time we talked that she was the one. She mad us feel comfortable from the beginning. We even traveled to CA and added an engagement session. We loved the way she directed the session and her work basically speaks for itself. She has a great eye for beauty. She is worth every penny!
