Jennifer Smutek Photography llc
I hired Jennifer as our wedding photographer and couldn't be any happier! Jennifer did an amazing job!!! She actually takes her time to get to know my husband and me as a couple before our wedding. She is a joy to work with! She was so reasonable and worked within our budget! Our guests couldn’t stop commenting on our wedding photos! Our photo was actually featured on Baltimore Bride Facebook! She is an absolute gem to work with and I strongly recommend all the brides to hire her!
If you don't like the photos on her website i would not recommend her. All of her photos are exactly the same; no creativity. She also did not do our parent books correctly; they were supposed to be different and she never swapped out any of the photos, so all 3 are the same.
Vendor response to review
I certainly would like to apologize for the confusion with your parent albums. I take a great deal of pride in my work and I want all of my clients to be thrilled with their albums and images. I believe there was a miscommunication when you approved the one design for all 3 albums. I am not sure if you received my email offering to correct the albums at no charge to you. If this is something you would like to take advantage of, I'd be happy to work with you to correct them.
As always, please feel free to contact me either by phone or email if I may be of any further assistance to you.
Jen was fabulous to work with! We haven't gotten our wedding pictures back yet (we just got back from Hawaii today!) but I'm confident they will be beautiful. She did an amazing job with our engagement photos back home and we flew her out to Hawaii for our wedding and trash the dress session. From the photos she showed me on the LCD, I know they will be amazing!
She's a wonderful photographer and was a pleasure to work with. I'm also a photographer so I wanted to be picky with who I used and that's a lot of the reason that we chose to bring someone from home instead of choosing a vendor in Hawaii.
Thanks a bunch Jen! You're the best :) You and Jimmy rock and it was awesome having you join us in Maui! I hope you enjoyed the trip and that baby Simon can go with you guys when you return, which I'm sure you will ;)
Jennifer is a seriously amazing and talented photography. But that is not what made her greatest wedding photographer for my big day. She has a way for working with you where you feel like your talking to a friend and not a "vendor". (Which is a word I don't like use when talking about her and her services). She always helped us get exactly what we wanted and worked with us. I am a type-a freak and she met with me as many times as I requested so that I felt confident that my big day would be captured perfectly in photos.
.....and let me tell you, it was. I look at my wedding photos a year later, and they still bring tears to my eyes. They are perfect in every way. Her style is the right amount of artistic shots and portrait-y family shots that are so important to have for you family.
She was constant and dependable, kind and helpful, funny and sweet..... And well gave me the most important thing from my wedding day, a beautiful and artistic way to look back on my wedding day after day.
She is fabulous and amazing and I don't think there is a better photographer out there.!
Jennifer is fantastic! Our photographer was one vendor we really didn't want to compromise on; however, like most couples these days, we had to keep a reasonable budget in mind. We've had countless friends get married and we've never seen photos that ever compare to ours! Not only is Jennifer kind, easy going and passionate about her profession, but she shot our wedding when she was EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT! Our ceremony and reception were outdoors in June on one of the hottest days of the month. With a bridal party of 20 to control, she was cool, calm and collected. While Jennifer usually has an assistant with her at all times for weddings, she even brought along an extra assistant to accomodate her unique circumstance and ensure that no shot would be missed. Not only were the ceremony shots beautiful, but she truly captured the fun and action of the reception, which I feel is rare. If you choose Jennifer, you will not be disappointed!
Jennifer is AMAZING! I met with a few photographers during my wedding planning phase and none of the others had her artistic and creative appeal. She made our engagement photos look beautiful. We wanted an emphasis on us with the architecture in Baltimore and she gave us everything we wanted and more. During the wedding planning process she provided us with a lot of guidance and was easily accessible. During our wedding she was 8 months and some change pregnant. She brought an extra assistant to make sure she could capture every moment in case she had to leave. She was not intrusive during the wedding and did not make us do anything cheesy (that was a #1 requirement). All of our wedding photos were artistically done and they were absolutely stunning. The album was fantastic. I would not recommend anyone else.
Excellent Photographer! What can I say..If you want a great photographer for your wedding, hire Jennifer! She has an excellent eye for photos and captures every moment perfectly. She is fun and easy to work with. I am not one who enjoys getting my picture taken, but after working with Jennifer I had so much fun that she could have taken my picture all day and I would not have minded! You don't even notice she's there taking your picture! She is AMAZING!!! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and I could not be happier with the way they all turned out. We get so many compliments on our pictures, engagement and wedding albums. She is very creative and makes everything flow perfectly. She is one of those photographers you hold on to and ask to photograph your life events (wedding, new baby, etc). I would recommend her to every bride looking for an amazing photographer at a price very reasonable and worth every penny! Giving Jennifer only 5 stars doesn't seem fair, if I could give her more I would! 10 stars is much better but still not enough!
Jennifer is an extremely talented photographer. It was a pleasure working with her. She's very easy going and laid back; always eager to try new things, but never to the detrement of the client. When we ran into an issue with our wedding day timeline, Jennifer went out of her way to get the pictures that she would have missed because of the change. She was wonderful to work with, and I highly recomend her. I not only have the pleasure of calling her a wonderful vendor, but also someone I consider a friend.
My wife and I got married on May 9th, 2009. Our best friend referred us to Jennifer Smutek and it was the absolute best choice that we made throughout the entire wedding planning. It was such a pleasure to work with Jennifer during the entire process. Although professional, she is extreamly personable and outgoing. She has such a great eye for things. There were times during the engagment shoot and the wedding that she had these ideas that I would personally think "this is kind of a weird background" and those pictures turned out to be some of our favorite ones. In both our engagment album and our wedding album, there is not a single flaw that can be pointed out. The pictures are beautiful, the layouts are very apprealing and the books themselves are of such high qulity. And I'll let you on in a little secret...this is between you and I....out of all of the photographers we looked at, she was the most reasonable! She was not the cheapest, cheapest is not always good....you get what you pay for, and we are talking about a life time of memories here people. But, we got the most BANG for our buck because the service was excellent, the photos are brilliant and we get nothing but compliments on our albums. We recommend Jennifer Smutek Photography to everyone and if you are in the market for a wedding photographer, give her a call, you will be glad you did. We definatley are!
PHENOMENAL! My guests were in tears looking at my pictures from the big day. She captured every moment and it was like she wasn't even there! She blended into the background, but still managed to capture each emotion, event, special time, that we wanted to remember! Her work is truly beautiful and she is dedicated to what she does. Her packages are very flexible and so is she! Give her a call!!!
My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer on several ocassions and also becoming good friends with her. She is a magnificient photographer and a wonderful person. Her pictures are flawless and capture important memories from special ocassions. I love looking at her work because every picture is unique and demonstrates her passion for photography. Jennifer is very easy to work with and is my number one choice for a wedding photographer !!!!
Jennifer is super fun and takes awesome pictures. I always get excited to be officiating at a wedding that she is photographing!
Jenn Smutek is not only an amazing photographer, she is incredible to work with! Jenn has an amazing eye and her pictures are stunning! All of my brides who have used Jenn loved her and her product and so do I! I highly recommend Jennifer Smutek Photography!
Fellow photographer (and one of my best friends), Jennifer inspired me to put my talent to work. I strive to create images as beautiful as the one she creates and she often serves as my muse, teacher, and consultant. If you are looking for a photographer in the Maryland area (or to travel) I highly recommend contacting Jennifer!
