Our Reviews

The past three years, we have won Best of Weddings on The Knot thanks to our amazing couples.


Here are some of their kind remarks:

"Jenna and her husband Andrew are THE BEST team to work with on your wedding day, especially through a pandemic. When we were navigating options to have our wedding in June, amidst COVID, Jenna was there every step of the way. She worked with our contract and assured us she would do her best to make the day perfect. And that she did. She helped plan the day and was so encouraging through the whole process. And don’t let me forget the PHOTOS! They were beautiful, and better than I could have ever imagined. I would recommend this couple 10 times out of 10 for your wedding and engagement photo needs! So professional and personal!" -Sarah & Alex

"We worked with Jenna and Andrew for our engagement and 9/5/2020 wedding. They exceeded our expectations when it came to our photos! They are so easy to work with and also easy to communicate with, especially during these times. I cannot say it enough that if you are looking for an amazing photographer, Jenna McCarty is the way to go!" -Cara & Corbin

"Jenna and Andrew did an amazing job! From start to finish, between our engagement session and our wedding, they were incredibly professional and made the whole experience fun. I give them bonus points due to working with us as we replanned our entire venue due to the pandemic. They had no problem traveling a far distance for us. Their pictures are second to none, and we are beyond happy with the results. Thank you for helping us remember our special day forever!" - Kaytlyn & Anthony

"Jenna of Jenna McCarty Photography exceeded all my expectations for a wedding photographer. We met through a mutual friend, and after a thorough and impressive meet n’ greet over the phone, we knew it was a fit! My husband and I didn’t realize we were picky about our wedding photographer until the choice came down to it, and we couldn't be happier about picking Jenna McCarty Photography. Jenna and Andrew were fantastic throughout the entire process. They listened to our desires for our vision for our day. Jenna is very organized, prompt, and attentive to detail. During our wedding weekend, Jenna and Andrew went over and above by spending some time at our venue scouting it out for lighting so they were extra prepared the day of. Despite living in Chicago, she was able to amend her contract to include fairly priced travel plans and accommodations. She was professional, organized and prompt during phone conversations and other communication leading up to the wedding. After the wedding, we received our photographs faster than initially expected, along with multiple teaser photos right after our ceremony. For the photography itself - it’s stunning! She has beautiful photos in her portfolio, and brings those same talents to your wedding. She even scouted our venue in advance to make sure she knew the best spots and angles for great lighting! Her personality was a great match for us, as she coordinated the family portraits efficiently. Right after the ceremony, she was firm but sweet in getting family and friends lined up for portraits shots, and it was respectful of both our guests and the church’s time. During the rest of the day, it was stress free as she laughed along with us during getting ready shots, bridal party shoot, and evening. Lastly, she and her Andrew checked in throughout the reception to ensure we got all the photos we wanted. All in all, we’re extremely happy we chose Jenna McCarty photography and would recommend them to other couples too!" -Kaitlin & Phillip

"I can't say enough good things about Jenna and Andrew. They are seriously amazing, my husband and I are so blessed we found them to capture our engagement session and wedding day. From the first meeting with Jenna, we felt 100% comfortable with her, she is so charming and welcoming :) When taking our pictures, my husband and I didn't feel uncomfortable at all, Jenna and Andrew each gave such good direction, it all just felt right. We will definitely be using them for all of our photography needs! Thank you again, Jenna and Andrew! <3" -Tina & Pat

"I truly recommend Jenna McCarty Photography to anyone!! My husband and I loved everything about having them photograph our wedding, and Jenna exceeded my expectations through all steps of the process. Originally I chose Jenna because I thought her work was beautiful and she was much more affordable than other options, especially for having two photographers included. From our first meeting, she was incredibly personable, organized, thorough, and professional. In her communications throughout the whole process, she was impressively timely and organized in reaching out and responding to me. During our engagement session, we quickly found out how skilled Jenna was in her posing/set-up so that we were simply having fun and enjoying being together and came across looking very natural in the photos. In the months leading up to the wedding, Jenna checked in and offered assistance numerous times with planning for photos and our day-of timeline. When I was unsure of whether our venue had enough good spots to take photos, Jenna agreed to meet me at the venue to walk around and assess photo locations, which was SO nice of her and gave me peace of mind when she pointed out plenty of great spots. On the day of the wedding, Jenna and her husband/second photographer Andrew were as organized, professional, and talented as we had come to expect—we were especially impressed with our fun shots with our bridal party, their ability to organize our very large families for family pictures, and awesome candid shots during both the ceremony and reception. The day after the wedding Jenna already had several photos posted online, and then within a week she had a very fun blog post up with a lot more of our pictures. In less than four weeks they got us the rest of our photos, which we absolutely LOVE and will no doubt treasure for the rest of our lives! We're so grateful to Jenna McCarty Photography for their amazing work!!" -Sara & Josh

"Short review: Hire them, highly recommend, totally worth it. Slightly detailed: We were on a tight budget with the wedding and Jenna/Andrew were great working with us on it. The most impressive aspect of working with them is the constant communication. Quick email responses, skype calls and constant contact from their end. We had Andrew and Jeff photograph our wedding. They arrived on time, knew what to do, took great photos pre-ceremony and were always available for pictures. I never had to look far to find these guys if I wanted to grab a quick shot with our guests. They were always available. I even asked them to have dinner while we were seated and they held off on it so that they could make themselves available all the time. They took a lot of candid shots which we loved. Jenna was away for the summer but did all the edits. Again, constant communication on how long it would take for post-processing etc... Pictures turned out great and they took A LOT of shots. Thanks again guys :)"- Ari & Sunny

"We loved working with Jenna and Andrew! We liked how they were organized and took the time to help us figure out what pictures to take on our special day. They worked hard during our outdoor ceremony on a hot July day! We were very pleased how the pictures turned out and how they captured the unique aspects of our wedding." -Amie & Dan

"I have only amazing things to say about Jenna! She was always so easy to contact and quick to respond to my questions or concerns. We had our engagement session through steady rain and she had to completely direct us through every possible, they still turned out incredible! I'm so excited to see our wedding photos from yesterday, I've already seen a few and I'm so impressed already!" - Erin & Seth

"We had the best time working with Jenna & Andrew! They captured our day beautifully! We did an engagement session with them which helped them figure out what poses work best and suggested great areas of Edgewater park to take pictures! The day of the wedding they were super easy to work with and just made the day fun. They made us feel relaxed and ourselves in front of the camera and captured many candid and fun dancing photos which is what we wanted most. I was so happy that we worked with them and would recommend them to any couple! They truly delivered us beautiful and fun photos that we have forever to look back upon." - Megan & Joe

"I cannot say enough good things about Jenna McCarty Photography! Jenna and Andrew photographed our engagement and wedding photos. Our engagement pictures were perfect and so far from what we have seen of our wedding photos they are as well! The quality and details of the photos are excellent! We cannot wait to see the rest!! Jenna and Andrew are highly professional and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. They are both so easy to work with! Before both shoots, Jenna inquired information about what types of photos we wanted and made our vision come to life! On the day of the wedding, Jenna made sure all the shots that we wanted captured happened. I would recommend Jenna McCarty Photography to anyone!!" - Heather & Bob

"We just got our wedding photos back and they are beautiful!! Jenna totally exceeded my expectations with the amazing job she did. She was so easy and fun to work with. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. You should definitely consider hiring her for your big day! I promise you won’t be disappointed. " - Nikki & Ricky
