JLB was easy to communicate with during the whole process. He asks you to try new things and the results are amazing. All his photos are creative and artistic, they are definitely not just plain ol' pics. JLB made the entire picture taking process stress free. I can't say enough about how great he is, he was such a highlight of the wedding!

Hiring JLB wedding was hands down the best money we spent toward our wedding. His artistic photographs go so far beyond standard wedding portraits. Really, his portfolio speaks for itself. I knew our photographs were going to be beautiful just by looking at it, but I didn't know how fun it would be to spend our wedding day with him. Jeffrey is incredibly warm, great at getting genuine smiles, a pro at managing large groups, and made all of us feel comfortable. He also makes sure that you get a highlight reel the very next day. (He actually had an assistant at our reception, tucked away upstairs, editing photographs from earlier in the day.) Our wedding party and all of our guests have not stopped raving about him and his work. The morning after our wedding day, I was recommending him to anyone who would listen, even single people who live out of state, telling them that when the day comes they need to find JLB! I genuinely could not recommend Jeffrey more!

Jeff is brilliantly talented and you will look gorgeous as will everyone else at the wedding! We are insanely happy with these pictures. My mom said it best "These are the wedding pictures most people hope to get and never do." Easy to work with and you get beautiful natural shots. He has great eye for composition and your photos will look unique. I wish he did other pictures as I would always use him. Of all the money you spend for a wedding, this money is well spent!

Jeffrey is just the best. When I started researching photographers for my wedding, I knew right away that I wouldn't find anyone better. If you've seen his work, it goes without saying that his photos are stunning and cinematic. Some of our photos look like they're from an editorial in Vogue. But that's just one reason why I can't imagine anyone having a better wedding photographer. Jeffrey is so easy to communicate with. He made the whole process very straightforward and simple. And even though we didn't meet in person until the morning of the wedding, I felt comfortable with him from the beginning. He had a calming, warm, and laidback presence that was never, ever intrusive. I can be pretty awkward when being photographed (where should I look? what do I do with my arms?) but Jeffrey made us at ease and told us exactly what to do so I never had that awkwardness. He is a true professional in every sense and I truly believe he was the best investment we made for the wedding (and seriously, a pretty good value!).

I discovered JLB through Instagram in 2013! And, immediately after seeing his work, I inquired about what he was able to do and asked what his availability was, for the next two years. (I was NOT even engaged at the time! LOL!) JLB responded to my emails right away, sent me his availability schedule and talked to me about his work! I told myself right then and there, that he was the guy that we wanted to do our pictures when we got engaged... and then married! Fast forward to two years later, I quickly contacted JLB after my fiancé and I got engaged, and we set up an engagement picture session. My fiancé and I still cannot get over how wonderful our session was! We were both sad when it ended because we had been looking forward to our session, for so long! JLB was punctual, easy going, and he really listened to what we wanted! All of our friends and family members contacted us after we got our pictures back, to let us know how beautiful they turned out. (I cried!) I couldn't ask for a better photographer! My fiancé and I are so looking forward to working with him again in May, when we tie the knot! Thank you JLB!!!!

My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about JLBwedding. I am quite an anxious person and he kept the day smooth and calm. I always feel awkward in front of a camera, but with his creative lead, it felt very easy.

Once it was time for the ceremony and reception, I felt like I didn't see him at all, but got back a TON of photos that are all so perfect. We had a guest list of 180 and he seemed to capture every single person there. Our wedding was very non-traditional and his photos convey our personalities perfectly.

He always responded promptly to emails and helped us plan our 'day-of' timeline. Not to mention, he emails you the very next day with a Facebook album full of teaser photos from the night before!

Our family and friends cannot stop commenting about how unique and awesome our wedding photos are. I knew they would be great, but they turned out even better than I ever could have imagined. Hiring JLB was seriously the best wedding decision we made and we cannot recommend him enough.

What drew me to Jeffrey was his artistic approach to event photography--while looking through his portfolio, I noticed how nothing was ever too staged or forced. The personality of the couple is always well represented. Since we had him photograph our wedding, I know now that that particular quality is made possible by his positive and laid-back yet professional nature--which made us feel at ease the entire day. It was like hanging out with an old friend! My husband has been a groomsmen in 5 weddings and, in those experiences, he felt really pestered by the photographers, so he was very concerned with how it would go--but with Jeffrey, it was a totally different and wonderful experience for us both. He was always mindful of what was going on throughout the day and was super easy to work with. For example, we had an unexpected spring snow storm on the day of our wedding and between his pictures and the animated gifs, he turned that situation into the most desirable one ever; we are so glad he was in charge of documenting everything! Jeffrey is an incredibly charming and talented photographer--we had a beautiful wedding at the Detroit Athletic Club but when anyone asks me what my favorite part of the experience was, I always say JLB! Thanks again!!

There aren't enough positive things to say about our experience with Jeffrey. He truly made our day unforgettable!

Beginning with the moment that we met him in the lobby of our hotel, he brought an extremely contagious positive energy that drove the remainder of the day. From getting dressed to making our way to the venue, the afternoon was an awesome adventure. The real magic was allowing Jeffery to lead with his creativity – the results were breathtaking and we had an incredible time running around the city with him.

Jeffrey captured our ceremony and reception unobtrusively – we didn't realize during the night just how many photos he had taken and how many different places he seemed to be at once. His approach allowed us to actually enjoy our evening; he captured us and our guests in true form. Even candid photos were taken with artistic consideration. Working with him was such a pleasure that many of our family and friends thought that we knew him personally!

He always responded promptly to emails, provided advice when needed, and even helped us plan our 'day-of' timeline. The day after our wedding we received an email with a link to a teaser album on his facebook page. Six days later we had received all of the proofs along with a mock version of our photo album.

We couldn't be more satisfied with the service that JLB has provided us. These beautiful and unique photographs really capture us and our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. Hiring Jeffrey is one of the best wedding decisions we made and we cannot recommend him enough. Although JLB Wedding may be higher than most couples' photography budget (dealing with a limited budget ourselves we were initially hesitant), the pictures are abssolutely priceless and well worth the money spent. Anyone questioning the cost should seriously reconsider if preserving the day is a priority. Every photograph is a story and Jeffrey did an amazing job telling ours!
