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.

Jeffrey is the absolute best. No question about it. If you are reading this, you are probably an over thinker like myself because his photos speak for themselves. They are unlike any wedding photos I have seen, so unique, so creative. But what you don't see in his photos is the experience you have with Jeffrey on the most important day of your life, your wedding day. You don't get to see his calming nature and swift ability to capture every precious moment and detail. Let's just say that our experience was equally as phenomenal as his photos are! Jeffrey is calm, creative, and simply amazing at his craft. He knows exactly what to say and do. I would venture to call him a genius in his arena.. truly mastering his art. Our sneak peak was posted the very next morning, allowing my family to gather around the computer and gasp at the greatness of them. My grandfather who does not have internet at his home was able to sit with me and examine how precious the day was. This is uncharacteristic of wedding photographers. I got chills from head to toe looking at our animated photo a few days later. It is priceless and perfect to us. As was our entire experience with Jeffrey. Chris and I have not been able to stop talking about how claiming and talented he is. My jitters went out the window and we were both in awe of his ability to do the job singlehandedly.

I could go on for days about our experience and how thankful and grateful we are for Jeffrey being apart of our day. He was the absolute best choice we made in this entire wedding planning process. In fact, in our eyes, he is the only photographer we would have wanted. Anyone else would have paled in comparison. He is truly in a league of his own - with talent that is exponential. We are so thankful to rank among the lucky people who have gotten the chance to work with him. It was an absolute privilege. Worth every single penny. Save money on something else....trust me!!!!

It was great working with JLB! On our wedding day, he was organized, relaxed, and we received multiple compliments from the bridal party about how much they enjoyed working with him. He was both accommodating and had so many great ideas throughout the day. He had an amazing creative eye, which produced some awesome pictures. He posted our teaser pictures the day after our wedding and we had the online gallery by the end of the week. We are so happy with our pictures, as they look amazing. We highly recommend JLB!

I cannot say enough good things about working with Jeffery. He captured our wedding day so beautifully that I cannot even put it into works. His photos really do speak for themselves! Some of the highlights of our wedding day was our one on one time with Jeffery. He has a way of making you feel so comfortable that at times you almost forget he's even there, and that I think is how he manages to capture your true self! I was able to get some quiet time with my husband before the madness of the wedding all while having gorgeous photos taken of us. He is extremely prompt and has some teaser photos up on his Facebook the day after your wedding which is AMAZING. I don't know very many other photographers that do that. Not to mention he had our preview of our wedding album done in under a week....so amazing! We also had him take our engagement photos and I HIGHLY recommend doing that as well! It made the day of the wedding go more smoothly because you learn how Jeffery likes to work. Thank you so much Jeffery for making our day so special!
