Jim and his team are absolutely amazing. My fiance and I just did our engagement photo shoot with Megan and she by far exceeded our expectations. It was a cold and windy day, but you cannot tell in the pictures. She was concise and fast, but at the same time provided a ton of variety. We also needed to get our pictures back fast for our save the dates. Megan got back to us with pictures within a week. We absolutely LOVE all of our pictures!

Cheryl is the absolute BEST wedding photographer. She has positive energy, patience and a sense of creativity. This was the best decision we made for our wedding and I'm so grateful for her work for our wedding. She knew specific areas for us to pose and how to pose, while making it completely natural. Our pictures are amazing. Photography was something I was very picky about and I'm so happy we went with Jim Kennedy Photographers and were able to work with Cheryl and her assistant Megan. I truly think you will have the best wedding photography experience. Do not waste your time searching for other photographers - book JKP!!!

I can't say enough positive things about the JKP team! I had the pleasure of working with Amber for our engagement and wedding photos and I couldn't be more pleased with the entire process! Amber is one of the nicest people I've ever met, and I couldn't imagine having anyone else help us capture our special day. She was extremely flexible when I had to change our engagement photo shoot not one but THREE times, and the photos she took are beyond expectation. She has the ability to capture light unlike anything I've ever seen and I'm so grateful for her ability to capture those special moments.

Photography, in my opinion, is a huge part of your wedding day, as it is the one thing you'll have for years to come. Amber was a Godsend, and I'd recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone who is professional, kind, responsive and, ultimately, who understands wedding and engagement photography. Money well spent!! Thanks, Amber!!

We had the honor of having Cheryl as our photographer. And let me just begin by saying how awesome she is at her job. All of our photos from our engagement shoot and our wedding were perfect! She was not only a super nice person but she was very professional with everything she did. She was always really easy to communicate with and contact. We will definitely be referring Cheryl and the Jim Kennedy Photographers Company to anybody and everybody we know. Thank you again for all your hard work Cheryl, you were amazing!

We spent a lot of time researching photographers for our wedding and could not have been happier with our decision to use Jim Kennedy Photographers. We loved Amber and her photos were absolutely amazing. Our friends and family are constantly complimenting our photos and tell us they look like they belong in a magazine. On top of the amazing quality everyone there was incredibly nice!

My husband and I met with Jim in his studio and immediately knew we wanted to book him. His pictures are truly amazing and he has such an artistic eye. He truly listened to what we wanted and worked within our budget. He didn't try to up sell us on services we didn't need.

He was great with communication, responded to emails promptly and always asked us what we wanted. He delivered our engagement photos when promised. Our session was such a blast! My husband hates taking photos longer than 20min but he never complained with Jim, he kept him at ease and helped him loosen up.

On our wedding day, he and Cheryl (who is also amazing) arrived on time and kept us on schedule with photos. They had great ideas and were there to capture those great moments. You can't go wrong with Jim Kennedy... truly amazing!

We worked with Megan from Jim Kennedy Photographers for our wedding. She and her team were incredible. I think what I appreciated most was that they could read and match our energy. They were flexible to do more shots of what we wanted, and changed directions easily when I was still getting comfortable in front of the camera. They were also able to direct us and keep everyone's energies high. I know with my friends, and finding family members for photos, it could feel like hearding cats, so I appreciated their ability to keep everyone together and make it fun.

We provided them with a list of shots we wanted to make sure we got, and they were able to capture everything we asked. Towards the end of our night, they stopped by to check in and make sure that there weren't any additional specific shots we wanted (aside from getting down on the dance floor). I really appreciated it because it gave me a chance to pause and make sure there weren't any last minute adds. And speaking of dance floor, they were able to capture some pretty fantastic action photos of our dance moves.

It was also wonderful to see Megan transition from photographing us to my nieces, who are 5 & 7 and were our flower girls. When they entered the room, Megan made silly noises and faces, and they loved every second of it, keeping the kids photogenic and calming my nerves simultaneously!

The Jim Kennedy team was charismatic throughout no matter who they were photographing. I would work with Megan and the Jim Kennedy team again in a heartbeat. Great energy and kind people.
