If I could, I would give Jeff and JLB Wedding a 15 out of 5 rating. There are not enough words to describe our phenomenal experience. Professional, exceptionally creative, and absolutely top notch. Jeff has the ability to be three steps ahead in planning the next perfect picture while he is in the middle of taking the best picture you're ever going to see. His creative ability to capture the most memorable moments in such a special way is something that I have not seen before in any other photographer. After looking at our wedding photos, and literally being brought to tears by their beauty, I realized that it seemed like we had 5 photographers based on all of the important moments he was able to capture. He missed nothing. He is so gifted at his trade that he has mastered the ability to capture photos you couldn't even dream up. His GIFS are off the charts!!! It adds something special that no other photographer pull off quite like Jeff. Photos were the most important aspect to us, and we are so grateful to JLB Wedding for being able to provide us with the most beautiful memories that will last us a lifetime. If you are debating, don't. You will not find another photographer like Jeff, and I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

JLB is worth every penny. You only get one opportunity to capture images which last a lifetime. His work speaks for itself but working with him was the highlight of our day. It was so fun, casual and painless. Our wedding party even thought he was a close family friend despite us just meeting him - that's how relaxed he is. Also, he made himself available to us at all times and even went out of his way to Skype with us to discuss concerns. Within 24 hours of the wedding, he had previews posted on Facebook. We were expecting a handful but there were over 40! Within 24 hours... After coming home from the honeymoon we had our proof book, photo book proof and gallery of images published online. He then sent us a super cool case with our photos on a flash drive. The level of customer service far exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't choose any other photographer to cover our day, he is professional, courteous and was an overall pleasure to work with.

Jeffrey's photos speak for themselves. We could not have been happier with our choice for photography for our big day.. Not only was he laid back and easy to work with, he was able to capture every moment so beautifully that we can relive the day for years to come. I am pretty shy and usually don't love getting my photo taken, and Jeffrey made everything so comfortable & relaxed - the creative session with him was actually fun, all we needed to worry about was smiling, laughing, and soaking in the moment with our best friend. The album he created is gorgeous , unique, and tells the story of the whole day. Everything also came back quickly, and even higher quality than we were expecting. Highly recommend ! PS - The compliments on the uniqueness and beauty of our photos keep rolling in!

When it was time for me to start planning my wedding, I had no idea where to start. Since I plan weddings for a living, picking my vendors was going to be a challenge since I know and have worked with so many! However, once I started reaching out, my choice for JLB was an easy one. I absolutely loved his style of photography. When we met up for our engagement session, I was so nervous. Nervous I would look bad or funny, but he made all of that go away within the first 5 minutes. The next 2 hours were great (freezing, but the photos turned out wonderful!) Now fast forward 11 months to our wedding. I don't know what I would have done without him. He just has a way of working with the bride and groom. That tiny grin he'll get behind the camera to help you break into a genuine smile. Being totally understanding if the bride needs a moment to slow down and take in her surroundings. He was able to keep our staged 30 minute church photos moving, even when we had a hiccup with one of the bridesmaids. He made the day so easy - like he was a friend truly invested in our day. Within 24 hours I got a "sneak peak" which was over 40 photos. The perfect send off for our honeymoon. I then received all of the other photos within one week. Yes, ONE WEEK. I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful and timely that is! I have brides who it takes over 3 months (yes, 3 MONTHS!) to get their wedding photos back. A week after I got home from our honeymoon, I received a box on my front door. A customized flash drive holder, a hard cover book with all images, and several printed images all packaged beautifully. It was the perfect surprise that day. JLB puts so much thought and effort into every single photo. He makes the day effortless and captures every single moment. I would suggest him to every bride and groom looking for a photographer who wants to capture their day. Who doesn't just do the "pinterest" photos - but actually puts creativity into your wedding photos and captures the true

"I can't imagine our wedding without Jeffrey." What every girl expects to hear from her husband on their honeymoon. But, I couldn't agree more. When searching for a photographer, JLBWedding's pictures made me pause. Jeffrey's style is distinctive. He captures couples in their most beautiful and creative light without making them appear artificial. I did not want engagement pictures. But, after seeing the engagement pictures on his page, I instantly changed my mind. I contacted him as quickly as I could and he responded just as quickly; a trend that continued throughout the process.

Everything about our wedding was unbelievable and Jeffrey truly made every moment that much better. He knew when to direct (Persians can be pushy and less than punctual) and when to transition to some sort of stealth mode. And, then by some even crazier magic, these amazing pictures that encapsulated our favorite day popped up before our eyes the very next day! So, it's true, we thought about Jeffrey on our honeymoon. And, I can't imagine our wedding without him.

Jeffrey is the man!!! My fiance and I couldn't be happier with our NY Story Session/Engagement Shoot. He did a phenomenal job making us feel relaxed and capturing amazing, artistic shots! We had such a blast the entire time!

Jeffrey is super professional and really talented at what he does. We had a few uncontrollable obstacles, i.e, subway delays and getting locked in at Central Park, and Jeffrey was super calm and quick at problem-solving. We had to climb a fence, and it was not easy in a dress but we all did it with smiles on our faces. And wow, does he know how to hustle! Because of the subway delays, we were running through the park to catch the sunset and he can run even with all of his heavy equipment!

If you want memorable photos that stand out from all the typical engagement photos, go with Jeffrey! Everyone loved our photos and cannot stop commenting on how beautiful they are!

Thank you Jeffrey for being so down-to-earth, easy to work with, and talented! Because of you, Michael and I will have photos that we'll cherish throughout our lives.

This guy is a true artist and captured our wedding better than we could have ever expected. If you are looking for a true artist to capture your day, have your pictures stand out, and be better than any you've ever seen before, then look no further. He is also a blast to work with. He knows how to get the best shots and does it quick. He has a great sense of humor and makes you feel very comfortable the whole day. He also truly listens to what shots you want to accomplish and he makes it happen. You dont need a plan with him, just pick a area you like and show up and he will lead you to amazing shots and help you have a great time while you do it. We did both a engagement session and a full day of photos at our wedding and I highly reccommend you do the same! Worth every penny although jeffrey is very reasonably priced considering how superior his work is. Do both and keep him around for the whole day. You wont regret it! Stop reading this review and book him before someone else gets your date! Cheers! Best in the biz.

First and foremost: if you are reading this right now, the most important piece of advice I can provide you is to open a separate tab and contact Jeffrey immediately about your date and his availability…and then come back! All you need to do is read one or two reviews, and you’ll know that contacting Jeffrey will be the best decision you’ll ever make with respect to your wedding.

It’s taken me so long to come and write a review because I’ve been trying to find the right words that truly describe Jeffrey. No words can come close to defining how amazing he is to work with…but trust that you too will be at a loss for words because you are in utter awe of his professionalism and artistic views. It’s been 3 months since our wedding at the DAC and people are still talking about how impressed they were with Jeffrey; those who were in the wedding party, attended the wedding, simply just viewed the pictures from the day.

From the minute you are fortunate enough to confirm Jeff for your day, he’s available to answer any questions you may have (I’m convinced he doesn’t sleep) & is so diligent about understanding exactly what you are looking for leading up to the big day…that when the day arrives, you just have to worry about smiling, laughing with your significant other, and finding a glass of champagne. Because the material you will receive after your wedding aren’t just “pictures”, but rather a mesmerizing novel of such a significant part of your life that you’ll hold dearly for years and years to come.

Look...I'm not going to get all frilly and mushy about how Jeff captured every moment of our day and made both my wife and I look like a million bucks. But know that he did.

If you care about your wedding photography, book this man. No it's not cheap...but neither is that dress you're going to wear. Once.

Jeff isn't the type of photographer who will "recreate that ah-mazing pic you found on Pinterest". Go book that photographer if that's what you're about. He does however figure out what's important to you guys, and takes time to make sure you feel 100% comfortable/awesome.

If you want run of the mill, discounted wedding photos...it's super easy to find a putz with a camera and flash. But if you want real, honest artistry...JLB is it.

You're welcome.

From a tiny gasp to breathtaking memories
My daughter came across the JLB Photography website and immediately fell in love. Since she lives out of the country, I was charged with doing the research for her upcoming wedding. As we old folks tend to do, I went directly to the “Pricing” information. Here is where I had that tiny involuntary gasp. But wait! Then, I proceeded to the photos. The artistry in those photos is unmatched! As I did more checking, I found that JLB pricing is quite reasonable, but the photography is priceless. I do not know of any other photographer that captures so many perfect moments. There are many very good photographers in our area, but JLB is phenomenal. He is a true artist.
Working with Jeff was so easy. He had us fill out forms in advance so he knew about all of those “special” shots to take. I imagine if one wanted some crazy picture of the undercarriage of the limo, JLB would do it. Plus he would do it in such a creative way! We didn’t have any unusual requests, but Jeff has a certain intuition and perspective for those special moments that will become favorite memories. We also appreciated how unobtrusive he was. At other events, I have watched overbearing, intrusive photographers ordering people about and staging awkward scenes. Jeffrey is stealth-like. I do not have the words to describe the stunning photos we had to choose from. He gave us wide range from whimsical to serious to romantic and the result is a spectacular cutting-edge collection. Best of all, we got a peek at some special photos almost immediately. His turn-around time is great for even the most impatient. If you are looking for photography that is both unique and artistic done by an affable and easy-going craftsman, you need to talk to Jeffrey Lewis Bennett. Your results will be breathtaking.
