LOVED Cheryl! We met her when we did our engagement photos and were so happy to have her be part of our day. We are not picture people (especially my guy) but she was great at keeping us engaged and focused in a fun way! She had Amber assist her on the wedding day and she was amazing too! We have seen our sneak peak and are SO impressed with the moments they were able to capture - can't wait to see the rest!

Thank you for capturing the best day of our lives! Megan Evans was outstanding. She took charge in a polite way that put our entire wedding party at ease. She was able to capture more moments and family pictures than I thought possible in the time allotted. She worked seamlessly with our videographer. It was like they had a plan of action before they even met.

The proofs were sent to us in only a few weeks. I can not say enough good things about Megan. Her professionalism was out of this world. I have a loud family with big personalities and a bunch of kids. No problem for Megan. She literally made our day!

Now on to the photos themselves. I do not know how she captured what she did. I see emotion and feelings in every shot. The photos by the Ocean on the jetty are priceless. We were not even going to go out by the Ocean but Megan had the plan and a great plan it was. She was so fun to work with too. A professional young woman with a creative edge and a sense of humor. Perfection. Thank you Megan and JIm Kennedy Photographers. I wish I could give you 10 STARS!!!

I highly recommend Jim Kennedy Photographers. Cheryl was our photographer and she was fantastic. The pictures are artistic and touching and beautiful. She captured key aspects and feelings of the ceremony and reception and our family and friends. Because of her, we will have pictures that we will treasure forever. I am not that photogenic but she made me look better than any other pictures I have ever had! We are getting tons of compliments from our family and friends. Finally, both Jim, the owner, and Cheryl, were flexible and made the process fun and not stressful.

I can not say enough about the experience I had with Jim Kennedy and Cheryl. I wish I could give them and her a 10 out of 10. Cheryl is amazing, sweet, imaginative and so very talented. She captured our wedding so beautifully the images make me tear up. We plan to make her our family photographer and we live 3 hours away.

Thank you to Jim Kennedy Photograph for capturing our special day!

I am a very camera-shy (even camera-awkward) person by nature, but Jim and Lauren made me feel immediately comfortable and excited about documenting the big day. From the minute they walked in, I knew I had made the right choice. We had had a few brief conversations in the lead-up, and he immediately understood what we were looking for – nothing overly stylized or dramatic, but definitely special shots of a special day. After that, no need for a reminder or overly planned out shot-sheet, Jim had it down!

Jim’s familiarity with the venue and expertise shooting weddings were invaluable. We went to one courtyard for the “first look,” and there was actually another bridal party already there. Without missing a beat, Jim switched gears, called Lauren -- who was with the groom -- and rearranged it for a different gorgeous indoor setting on property. They were also on point in getting smiles from our 3-year-old participants: a feverish flower girl and a distracted ring bearer.

Within a day of the ceremony, Jim had put up a couple of sneak peeks to social media, and we are SO excited for the rest. He posted one of our first kiss from the officiant’s view, and as another testament to JKP’s abilities, I didn’t even notice that Jim had snuck up there! Throughout the entire day and evening, he and Lauren were unbelievably efficient and professional. Jim was able to get a beautiful range of posed shots before and after the ceremony, but he made sure we missed as little of the party as possible. Somehow, we never once felt rushed or panicked, and I don’t know how he struck that balance, but he did, and we couldn’t be happier.

While shooting candids inside the reception, Jim and Lauren covered everything and everyone, without ever feeling intrusive or interfering with the flow of the party.

I enthusiastically recommend JKP to anyone looking for someone to really do justice to his or her big day!

Jim and his staff are very professional and captured our special day perfectly. Cheryl was our photographer for our engagement photos as well as our wedding. She was a delight to work with and was very creative with our pictures and poses. We could not have been happier with the way everything went and will recommend Jim Kennedy Photographers to all of our friends and family.

Jim and his team are the best it gets. They are extremely professional and make you feel like you have known them for years. Jim did our engagement session and we had a blast, he makes you feel comfortable and makes sure he gets the pictures you want. Cheryl did my Boudoir photo shoot and I had so much fun. I was very nervous before but Cheryl quickly took that nervousness away with her professionalism and great personality. JKP also did the photos for my wedding and I cannot wait to receive my book. I highly recommend using JKP for any occasion and purchasing his quality album books that you will have forever.

Amber and the Jim Kennedy Photography team were phenomenal!! Their expertise in photography made our wedding day the most spectacular day that I could have ever asked for. Amber is truly talented and professional. Every single photo she took was amazing throughout the whole wedding day from start to finish. She worked so well with our wedding coordinator and DJ, which made everything go so smoothly. It rained a little on our wedding day, during the time we were taking photos, but Amber made the whole process so relaxing and captured the most beautiful details. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience!! Hands down, I would recommend them for every event!!
