Jen Cody reviews

My husband and I had been dating for 12 years when we got married this June - so we wanted our wedding to feel down to earth, comfortable, and fun. I first chatted with Jen Cody 9 months before the wedding and she put me at ease immediately. I was very cautious about investing too much in photography, since I wanted everyone to be focused on having fun in the moment, not documenting everything for posterity/social media.

Throughout the entire planning process and wedding - I loved working with Jen. She was the perfect combination of competent and supportive - with a great sense of humor. She immediately understood our values & vision for the wedding and did everything she could to help.
Most importantly, I just got the photographs back and they are absolutely stunning - I can't believe how well Jen was able to capture the expressions of my family and friends. In particular, her candids are amazing. She captured these tiny, fleeting expressions from many of my guests - tiny moments of laughter and tears.
The wedding was such a joyous and moving experience for my husband and me. I didn't think that any one day could be so important - but now that I've experienced it, I am SO grateful for every single photograph.

We love them. Our families love them, and our friends love them. Strangers love them!
Friends have told me they showed our photos to their friends and family who “ooh’d” and “ahhh’d” over them. The best part of all is that I was able to instantly remember each moment in which each photo was taken.
I’m utterly thrilled that you captured Ben’s expression standing at the altar at the beginning of the ceremony. That photo gives me a huge whoosh of emotion, and it is my favorite.
The photo helps me remember how I felt at that moment seeing him for the first time on our wedding day, and for that I am so grateful to you.
A million thank yous.

Jen Cody was on my venue’s preferred vendor list and I am SO glad we chose her to be our photographer. After we did our engagement session in downtown Alexandria, we were BLOWN AWAY by how beautiful the pictures turned out. I knew she would do an amazing job on our big day! Jen got there right on time to capture those “prep” moments and kept us on time for the rest of the day. We were in a brand new hotel and she managed to find some of the best shots even though parts of the Inn were still under construction.
Jen and her assistant were so friendly and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the day. One of the reasons we chose her was for her incredibly unique style.
She does AMAZING silhouettes and captures such beautiful moments that other photographers wouldn’t think to capture. We just got our preview back and I’m in LOVE with every picture she took. I would recommend Jen to every bride and couple out there!
She is so talented, one-of-a-kind, and will take the most beautiful pictures! Book her!

I would like to tell you how much Joe and I appreciated working with you and having you be a part of our wedding.

We truly think we hit the proverbial “jackpot” with you as our photographer.
Thank you! I couldn’t be more pleased with the photos.
