“Jennifer is an absolute rockstar! I hired Jennifer to take photos of my proposal and the whole process from beginning to end could not have gone any better. My biggest concern with hiring a photographer for the proposal was the thought that it would take away from the intimacy of the moment… I could not have been more wrong… Amanda (my now fiancee) had absolutely no clue that Jennifer was there taking pictures until I introduced them well after I popped the question and shared that special moment together. Even when Jennifer was introduced, the picture taking process following the proposal was so natural and did not feel forced at all. She was able to catch so many unbelievable candid photos and perfectly captured such an amazing moment in our lives. Aside from the actual photos, Jennifer also helped me pick the perfect spot to propose. I am not from the Chicago area (and had never been), so she literally had me on the phone and looking at google maps of places based on what I told her I wanted the proposal to be like. Jennifer’s incredible energy showed through her lens and all of the photos she captured of us. From the candid shots to the suggested poses Jennifer knew exactly how to capture the moment from start to finish creating a gallery of photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We received countless congratulatory calls, texts and “likes” for days after all of which included “who was that photographer and how did you find her she did an amazing job capturing the moment!” To say she went above and beyond her job description would be an understatement! We would recommend Jennifer 1000x over!!” – Taylor B.

“Jennifer! You are INCREDIBLE! We are so in love with all of the proposal photos. I told Taylor that having you there to capture that moment was the best idea ever and we will be able to cherish the photos you captured of us forever. The pictures truly speak a million words and have absolutely loved sharing them with our friends and family (near and far)!” – Amanda M.

“We absolutely loved working with Jennifer! We were impressed by how quickly (and thoughtfully!) she communicated with us via phone, e-mail and even text before the wedding. As bride and groom planning our wedding out of state, Jennifer’s attentiveness made our photography planning worry-free. When we met her in person six months before the wedding, Jennifer spent the first 30 minutes just getting to know us and hearing what we envisioned for our big day. She then shared her ideas for our photography timeline (Jennifer had already toured both of our venues on her own!), so we knew we were in the best care! We could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding and reception – definitely recommend you hire her!” – Meghan S.

“Jennifer did an amazing job photographing my surprise proposal! She was able to be flexible in discussing details and set up so that I could keep it a secret from my now fiancé. When the time came, she was great at blending in and not giving any hints as to what was about to take place. She captured incredible photos and shared some of the prints the same day, the entirety within a day or so. We couldn’t have been happier with the shots we got, and Jennifer even put together a video of the proposal that I had no idea she was going to at no extra cost. We loved everything we got capturing this moment, and also that it did not invade or take away from the moment itself. I’d highly recommend Jennifer as a photographer and will undoubtedly be looking to use her in the future.” – Zach L.

“Jennifer is absolutely fantastic to work with. She photographed our wedding as well as our engagement session. Jennifer’s strength is in capturing the love between couples. She got so many beautiful, loving shots of my husband and I using a good balance of coaching and leaving us to do our thing. Jennifer is kind, creative, fun and blended in wonderfully with our guests. It was a joy to have her capture our special day. I highly recommend Jennifer Claire Photography.” – Janelle C.

“I reached out to Jennifer with less than 7 days notice over Thanksgiving Break and she accommodated my every need for the surprise proposal photo shoot. She met me before, provided ideas and her opinion, was VERY flexible with time, location etc and most importantly, the photos were amazing! My fiancé and I loved them and will forever treasure them. I could not recommend Jennifer highly enough!” – Luke W.

“Lisa and I went through the album and are very pleased. It’s obvious you did a lot of work with the number of categories in the album (not to mention editing) and we couldn’t have been more thankful and lucky to have you as our photographer. Feel free to use us as a reference should the need ever arise.” – Jay F.

“I have worked with Jennifer Claire Photography on several shoots and she has never ceased to amaze me. She is very professional – on time, gives great direction, takes leadership, extremely coordinated; yet set she is also creative and warm. I’ve used her for head shots, but have especially loved her photographs of my event designs. Photography is one of the most important ways to capture each and every detail at events and she made everything look flawless and fabulous. Absolutely perfect.” – Erin D. | Owner & Lead Planner at Dotted Events

“Jennifer was a pleasure to work with.  She did professional photos for myself and my employees. Jennifer was meticulous, friendly, and offered helpful directives to get the best shots. The return time on getting the finished product was much faster than I expected. The photo’s were all centered, the color and focus was great and I was able to use multiple shots that she took for all of us.” – Ilene K., M.A., LCPC | Owner of Next Step Counseling

JCP is the best! We had such a fun time taking photos around Chicago. Jennifer is professional and talented, taking leadership and while still being incredibly comforting and warm. Her turnaround time was extremely quick and I love the results. She took my headshots, and I can’t wait to use her for other photos as well!” – Rebecca H. | Co-Founder, Writer at Newsroom Communications
