  • Jennifer and Team were just amazing. We had a large wedding party and they kept things on task and made sure we didn't lose track of time and get everything done we needed to do - including keeping the kids occupied. I'm a meeting planner by trade - but I didn't have to worry - I let the team do what needed to be done and I was able to just go with the flow and enjoy the wedding. Pictures were amazing and I have some moments that were captured that mean the world to me. They captured the day without being intrusive to our special day. Get the videographer - it is totally worth it! It wasn't something I was planning, but I am so glad I was able to get our special day on film. Just being able to watch the moments I wasn't able to see in person and to get those memories down on film is worth every penny.

  • Jen recently photographed my brother's wedding and I cant say enough awesome things about our experience. Jen arrived right on time, took complete control of our timetable and got us in line, and she also helped with making the final decision on moving the ceremony inside out if the rain at the last minute. She was a complete professional the entire time and never lost her cool while the rest of us felt overwhelmed. We appreciated her ability to adapt to a new ceremony location at the last moment. I cant wait to see all the wedding pictures! Thank you Jen!

  • Jen and her team are truly amazing!! From our first chat I knew that Jen would be our wedding photographer, her energy and excitement could be felt through the phone. She truly took the time to get to know us and wanted to make sure that she could provide us with our perfect pictures! We had an amazing engagement session, my fiancé and I tend to be camera shy but she put us at complete ease and made the day so much fun! Jen and her team have made wedding planning a breeze even with ever changing schedules related to the pandemic. When our wedding had to be postponed Jen and her team had us rescheduled with just one phone call and guaranteed us that they would be with us every step of the way. I am so happy to work with such a wonderful team and am as excited as ever for our wedding day and the beautiful pictures to come!

  • The team at JHyde Photography is amazing! From the very beginning of our wedding planning, they helped our vision for our wedding photography and videography come to life.

  • Jen is the best! We clicked right away and absolutely LOVE our engagement pics! She is so down to earth and fun to work with. We couldn't be happier with our decision. We can't wait for her to shoot our wedding in less than a year, and then our bridal session! So excited!

  • I had recently met Jennifer and was SO happy to see that she would be my best friend’s photographer! I cannot say enough nice things about her! She immediately puts you at ease when you’re in front of the camera and knows the right things to say to catch a natural laugh or smile! Jen is extremely professional and had a great understanding of the entire day’s schedule. She was patient when the bride needed time to relax and knew exactly how long each shot would take. Jen showed my friend and I some photos she had taken the day of the event and I have no doubt that the bride will love every single one of them! Highly recommend using JHyde Photography for ANY event!

  • As a wedding coordinator, I work extremely close with all of my clients vendors but especially with the photographers! This team effort between the photographer and I is what makes the day stay on schedule and also allows the photographer to truly capture each moment of the day without thinking of what time it is or if we need to move onto the second location. Working with Jen and her assistant Rebecca was one do the best collaborative experience we had this year on an event. Jen speaks to her client with a ton that provide both comfort and direction. She’s a blessing to any couple on their wedding day! From her warm smile to her simply amazing eye for photography, I count down the days until we have the moment to work together again! I’ve only had the opportunity to see snapshots of the day, but am blown away with what we’ve seen so far! If you’re looking for photography team that provides out of this world quality and does so with a glowing personality and true Passion for th... Read more

  • I cannot praise Jennifer enough for how fantastic of a job she did for our wedding. I am super picky and tear my self apart in pictures but I loved EVERY SINGLE PICTURE that Jen captured. She went above and beyond from the start of the day to the end, never skipping a beat. She played bartender for our head table during dinner, she bustled my dress when I had a meltdown from carrying my train all day, and she saved me from a wardrobe malfunction reassuring me no one ever saw. In the process we worked so well together that I also made a friend! I would recommend Jennifer to anyone and everyone. She truly is a talented and wonderful person.

  • JHyde Photography is nothing short of perfect! My husband and I were married in Benton Harbor, MI, and Jen Hyde herself made the 4+ hour trek, a handful of times to capture our day for us!! Jen was so charismatic and friendly, we instantly felt a bond with her! She seemingly effortlessly captured every precious moment of our wedding. I am so thankful to have found her, and for the amazingly emotional memories she gave to me forever! Thank you Jen, for everything, our day simply would not have been the same without you!

    Laura, I feel like this is cheating a little bit... bc truly I would have driven twice as far to see you and Ryan get married! I am so thankful for this experience bc through it not only did I get to witness one of the most beautiful loves I have ever seen- but our friendship grew into a sistership!!

  • Jen was incredibly accommodating with our first meeting. She helped us personalize the package that fit our needs and budget. We ended up getting more than was possible with other photographers and her albums show couples who look genuinely happy and not just posed. She answered questions I didn’t know I had

    Ashley, thank you so much for your kind words- they mean so much to me! You are Rory were a dream to work with & I am so incredibly happy for you both!! From the moment I met you two- I knew there was something really special there & it was truly amazing to photograph you basking in all the love & happiness you two share!! I wish you a lifetime filled with love like that!!

    Leslie- My dear friend - thank you for your kind words- without you I dont think I would have met Jon & Rachel & that would break my heart! I just adore them! Their wedding was truly such a wonderful day ( despite the crazy rain & impromptu school house ceremony :) ) It was filled with so much love & passionate tears that I will forever be thankful to witness such love. I also am so excited for your upcoming wedding!! Not only will it be a wonderful reunion- but I am also thrilled to be there to celebrate the love that fills your life!

  • Jen was an easy "yes" for my husband and I. Not only is Jen creative and captures beautiful moments that last forever, but her personality is fun and she really gets to know you as a couple and capture your love story. Our wedding was in Milwaukee, and Jen made the distance of planning that much more easy for us. We trusted her with everything and she didn't disappoint. We love you Jen and staff!!! You guys are truly amazing and we are so lucky to have crossed paths!! XOXO, Julia and Michael
