Jonilyn NEVER responded (going on 4 weeks) to emails requesting information about her services. I find that absolutely unacceptable for someone you are trusting to capture moments from a life altering event. Totally unprofessional and unacceptable. Though I did not book or use her, I feel the need to post being busy is no excuse. I also inquired with top wedding photographers who are very busy and either got immediate responses or responses within 5 business days were they profusely apologized for their tardiness.

I would have loved to give Jonilyn 5 stars... but again... LACK of COMMUNICATION is bringing her business down. I literally was HUNTING her down to get her pricing and see if she was available for our date. She responded to my email 3 weeks later stating she was veyr busy.... which is a good sign for a wedding photographer. We hired Jonilyn to shoot our wedding. We did an engagement session with her and the photos turned out beautiful. She is very sweet in person and professional. It took a good 2 months to receive our engagement photos.... There was not much communication before the wedding other than we HOPED that she was going to show up. She did... on time... and again, was very sweet and easy going. She even stayed till the very end, beyond contracted hours. I requested a few shots of certain things to be taken at the wedding, for the most part she did take those shots...however, there were some they she did not take or at least did not provide (even though I requested them AFTER the wedding but no response) We got our digital photos 1.5 months after the wedding.... that's after me placing a few emails asking for the photos. Even though, JOnilyn never replied.... her assistant did. Our wedding photos were gorgeous and we are very happy with the end product. But we have been left with a "bad taste" in our mouth... feeling as if she didn't want to shoot our wedding or something. Our advise to Jonilyn: You are EXTREMELY talented, however your business tactics need much improvement. If you want to be successful in this business, please refocus and take full responsibility - communicating with your clients is AS important as your talent.

Jonilyn deserves ZERO stars. She is unprofessional and unorganized. It took her days, if not weeks, to respond to any emails. She allegedly hired an assistant but it didn't help. She was late for our initial meeting and I should've seen it as a sign. But I was convinced that she was the photographer we had to have for our wedding. She sent me the contract and an invoice. I was about to send her the deposit electronically when I received another email that basically said, "Oops, I thought you were [Mary]. I'm actually booked on your date with [Mary]." Yes, I have a common name but you FORGOT you were already booked? She offered an engagement session to make up for the misunderstanding. We decided on a date, place, and time -but she didn't even show up! It's been nearly a year since this happened. My wedding day has come and gone and it went perfectly - without Jonilyn. I'm so glad we did not book her. I WOULD NOT recommend her to anyone looking for a good photographer.

I am very disappointed in the professionalism that Jonilyn displayed during process of selecting her as our photographer. If you are considering Jonilyn, I encourage you to read our experience below. Our first attempt at a face-to-face failed; she thought we were meeting on Tuesday, when instead it was supposed to be a Monday. She offered us a substantial discount if we still were will to consider her for our wedding. Eventually we rescheduled for a few weeks later when she was back in town. This meeting went well (at least from our perspective), and with the discount, we decided to choose Jonilyn as the photographer for our wedding. Except now we can't get a hold of her! Despite several phone calls and emails, we received no response. During this period we could see that she was actively blogging on her website, so obviously she was around. Obviously she decided that for whatever reason (didnt want to offer the discount, didn't like us during the meeting, etc) that she didn't want to be our photographer. Her method of resolving the situation was to completely ignore us, and lead us on for another week while we waited for a response. As I mentioned in the beginning - extremely unprofessional, and a waste of time for both parties. If you are not interested in being our photographer, a simple "no thanks" email would have been sufficient after our last meeting. The lack of her answering the phone was also very frustrating; perhaps if you choose her as your photographer she will put your number in her phone so that she knows to answer.

Jonilyn definitely deserves 5 stars! Her and her husband went above and beyond on my wedding day, despite what a nervous wreck I was. They were not only there for over 11 hours, but she gave me advice when I asked her questions on my finishing touches like veil placement and too much lipstick. She is the most accomodating, vibrant, easy going vendor I had and I can't wait until I have another opportunity to take pictures with her again! Although I haven't received my wedding pictures back, I can say my engagement photos were amazing. She accomodated my hectic schedule and was paitient when I was running late. Thinking back, she was so discrete and respectful of my Catholic churches list of regulations.

She made me feel at ease around her and not nervous or self concious. Not to mention, in comparison to her work, she is VERY affordable.
