We traveled for our honeymoon to Hawaii. Given the pressure of the wedding day we couldn't enjoy enough our wedding photo session , so we really wanted to supplement our wedding photos with great photo session from our beautiful honeymoon.
We reviewed websites of several photographers and by far loved the best Jen's photos. Having photography as a hobby we had a very high standard of the photographs we want and level post processing needed. Jen surpassed our expectation by far.
The process of booking was very convenient. We did all by email , which was the only reasonable way to contact given 13 hours time difference.
More than anything we enjoyed the session itself. Jen was very friendly and made us feel very relaxed and enjoying ourselfs. She incorporated all our ideas into the just one hour session , while also making many of the photos in her trademark styles, like writing on the sand. She also knew how to catch just the right moments from just the right angles, so that our photos will be as beatifull as possible.
Me and my wife rate this session as the best romantic thing we did in our honeymoon.

Jen was able to capture some special moments for us during our vacation in Maui September 2012. She made the session very comfortable and casual and suggested excellent beach locations. Makena Beach was the perfect location for our sunset portraits. We will definitely return and would recommend Jen to anyone wanting portraits done in Maui. She does a great job communication via email/phone before and after your portraits, which we greatly appreciate. Also, she was able to produce outstanding photographs that you will keep forver. Thanks so much Jen! Aloha from Dallas, TX

For our 50th anniversary my husband & I wanted to celebrate the event on our favorite island of Maui with our Family.
There are 11 of us including 5 children ages 7 thru 12. We wanted to preserve these memories forever & what better way then in pictures.
Being a camera buff myself I had a vision of what I wanted the pictures to look like & so my search began. After looking at many web sites I kept combing back to Jen's.
There was something special in her work I really liked. It did not take me long to make my decision in addition to her beautiful work she was very easy to communicate with.
It was the best decision I made. She was so pleasant & upbeat, the kids loved her & the session went perfect. We loved our pictures, the only problem was not being able to decide wich ones to get, they were all great so we took them all.
Our memories are forever captured in her pictures.
Thanks Jen from all of us the Balic Family
We absolutely loved LOVED our photography session with Jen. She's a very happy person and her smile is contagious! Yet she remained perfectly professional and managed to still get the best shots. Our daughter enjoyed taking pictures and we have the best pictures of her now to remember our Maui trip forever. Jen suggested which beach we should go to, and it turned out to be spot on. The best of what we wanted, blue water and palm trees. She even brought some island props, including a starfish (which turned out to be our favorite picture of us as a couple). By the end of the morning, our daughter ended up playing in the ocean, still smiling. Never was she frustrated or bored at any point throughout the photo shoot. We highly recommend her to keep your Hawaii memories alive.
What I loved about my experience with Jen was her wonderful attitude. She was so fun and excited and made the session enjoyable. It was super casual and the both of us laughed the entire time with her. The photographs are beautiful. We are so proud of the photos and have shown them off to everyone that comes near us. This session was one of the best decisions we made for our first trip to Maui. She was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend that anyone looking for a photographer in her area call her first.
My family and I were fortunate enough to enjoy the beautiful islands of Hawaii in May. We knew that we wanted something more sentimental to remember our trip than a snow globe or t-shirt. So we decided to hire a photograph to capture the best memories of our trip. After reading was seemed like 100 reviews for 100 different photographers, we unanimously picked Jen...and it was one of the best decisions we made about the trip! First of all, I spoke to Jen for about 1 hour a few months before our trip to discuss my expectations and what I was looking for in the photos. We also chatted about the island and our families. It is so wonderful to meet a photographer who wants to get to know her subjects. This is what I call the personal touch! Leading up to our trip Jen was in contact with me via email and quick to respond to any questions I had. On the day of the shoot, Jen was prompt and ready to go as soon as she meet us. She is beyond professional in every way! She placed us in many wonderful posses and locations but was more than happy to oblige with any of our requests. She welcomed them! We had an engagement picture taken with our son 6 years ago on a bench and 6 years later Jen helped us recreate that same picture (after moving a little hotel furniture!). Those photos now hang side by side on my wall and truly capture how our family has formed over the years. Great Great Great photo! She is very knowledgeable about the location she will shoot you in so that she can get the best photos. It all felt so natural and wonderful. It is difficult to keep a teenage boy smiling for 2 hours but she did. Our session (go for the 2 hour it is worth every dollar!) was FANTASTIC! In the end, we had over 200 pictures that literally brought tears to my eyes. There is a candid photo of my son and me on the beach, and if you think it is impossible to capture the love between a mother and her son, you are wrong because JEN WILL SUCCEED!! Every photo is edited to perfection and you will not end up with 200 pictures that all look the same. The final product will be a story that you will cherish forever. Thank you Jen for making our trip so much more special...we will be forever grateful :)
"Having you take our pictures was the best thing we did on Maui! Thanks Jen!! We are so happy we had you take our family pictures! They are so beautiful! Now we will never forget our vacation with these beautiful pictures of our family."

Thank you so much Jen for helping us capture this special moment for our family. Your pictures are beautiful and we are so happy that we contacted you. Your images really do stand out from others and your work speaks for itself. You were so kind, patient, and understanding of how difficult it can be to deal with a toddler during a photo session. Thank you once again for making it a memorable experience and capturing this moment that will forever be in our hearts. Sincerely, The Kwon Family Sacramento, California
“We are absolutely happy with how our pictures turned out (great quality!) Jennifer was very professional and easy to work with. She definitely captured some great moments and put some nice finishing touches on the edits. Best of all, she is very patient with kids! We would highly recommend her and look to using her again when we go back to Maui.”
