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!

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.

Lauren and Megan were easy and fun to work with. They were flexible, quick and worked well together. I like that we got every single photo taken that so we were able to pick the ones we preferred. I would definitely hire them again.

Jim Kennedy and his team have a lovely little office in Newport area, and run a very professional service there. Amber was our photographer for both the engagement photos as well as the wedding. She made us feel very comfortable, and loved shooting my crazy bridal party. She was fun and easy to talk to. I now follow her and Jim on social media and will use them for any future events I would like photographed! Go with JKP, you won't regret it!

Jim Kennedy Photography was extremely responsive starting from my initial meeting request. Jim was flexible with our work schedule and we were able to meet at their location in Costa Mesa during the week after work. Jim gave us multiple options and provided us with a package specific for our needs. We were set up with Amber as our photographer and she was super nice, relatable, and easy going. She gave us her personal phone number to meet at our engagement shoot and was excited to do two locations and two outfits. Her picture placements were very well thought out and felt personal to our taste. After the engagement shoot Amber was always willing to answer any questions I sent over text or email. She helped me put my entire itinerary together and even helped me with last minute changes to get the perfect shots before sunset. The day of couldn't have gone any more smooth. Amber and her assistant kept everyone on time and we were able to get every photo arrangement we requested with time to spare. Jim Kennedy photography even sent us teasers on Instagram to keep us excited about all the photos we would be seeing. We had all of our photos within 3 weeks of the wedding and they were outstanding! Even our location reposted some of her photos! Their website to download the photos is very easy to use and we couldn't be happier with Amber and Jim Kennedy Photography!
