I could not imagine our wedding without Jennifer. We hired her as our photographer, but she ended up being so much more. She was excellent with the children and ended up coaching and instructing them- the flower girl and ring bearer needed some gentle directing. She was excellent at arranging and placing things so that the photographed well and would just pop over and fix a few things, making the photos look like they were out of a magazine. Actually, our photos were so good that we have had requests to use them in magazines when people have seen them online. Jennifer has such a patient, gentle manner, that everyone was very natural and at-ease during a pretty hectic day. She captured every detail, every emotion. Lighting was gorgeous and natural, her angles were intimate without being overbearing and she was never in the way- if anything she was helpful and perfectly balanced. I could not recommend her enough.

My wife and I will cherish our wedding photos until death do us part and that is thanks in large part to Jennie. She covered every angle of our wedding from start to finish so beautifully. (When we saw all the images afterwards it seemed hard to believe she wasn't in two places at the same time!) And she never lost step; the energy and enthusiasm she had throughout was inspiring, especially considering that we had what amounted to a 12 hour wedding party!

Jennie masterfully and gracefully rounded up guests for formal group shots, unobtrusively documented all the action on the dance floor capturing fantastic, hilarious and intimate shots, and even managed to bust a few moves herself. She documented all the food, decorations and scenery and ultimately captured the overall celebratory and romantic mood of the day. She was wonderful and we couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you, Jennie.

Jennie has been a good friend of mine since our first days of college, so naturally, she was a big part of my wedding. I should mention, I had about a month to plan everything and a shoestring-on-a-shoestring budget. My main goal was to get my closest friends together to celebrate. Jennie stepped up and offered to help me and she became an invaluable necessity. I donʼt know how I could have done it without her. She managed to combine her passions and talents into a well-oiled wedding machine; cooking a mouth-watering feast for 50 people, baking three cakes, then somehow taking the most beautiful shots that captured everything perfectly; the love, the chaos, the whole thing.

Astonishingly, she still had the energy to soak up the festivities and dance her butt off! This is what Jennie does. She puts her whole being into what she creates. She loves helping people and “being there.” Events that are meaningful to friends, family, even people sheʼs just met, become hers as well. I truly admire her way of documenting in the most well-composed, yet natural way. I didnʼt plan to have a professional photographer at my wedding, I just got lucky, but the one picture I have framed and will cherish for the rest of my life is one that Jennie took.

When we started planning our wedding from France, we were daunted by having to choose a photographer remotely. After trying to find one unsuccessfully for a few weeks, we asked friends for suggestions and luckily we learned about Jennie and really liked her work. Jennie is both professional and personable and a great joy to have around. She did a terrific job getting pictures from spontaneous moments as well as stepping in and organizing more official shots. She has a tremendous gift for putting people at ease in the most stressful situations and works equally well with children, grandparents, the wedding party and others. We are overjoyed with the results and would highly recommend her!

Jennie is an amazing photographer and wonderful wedding vendor to work with. She is extremely personable and energetic, puts family members and guests at ease as she moves through the crowd, and took gorgeous posed portraits and really fun candids, especially of the dance floor. Honestly, having hired Jennie to photograph our wedding was the easiest and least stressful part of our wedding day and we will cherish the photographs she took forever. I highly recommend her and her services!

Jennifer Bastian was absolutely wonderful! Not only are her photographs lovely but she gets along so well with everyone, that they just seem to lighten up and feel free to be themselves around her, which of course leads to these wonderful photos. She was able to capture the magic of that day, no questions asked. If I ever need any photography of any kind she is my go to gal, I cannot wait for the day we decide to expand our family and have her photograph their precious faces.
