"Jennifer, of J Hodges Photography, photographed our wedding on April 27, 2013, and it was one of the best decisions we made. Wedding photography is an investment, and it's important to do your research on photographers in the area before making a decision. OneWed is where we came across J Hodges Photography. She is a pro at what she does, and through our experience, we soon discovered why she is an award-winning photographer. From the beginning, Jennifer was very warm, professional, up-front, and comfortable to be around. During our first engagement photo session, we could tell that she has a keen and experienced eye for great shots. She made us both look our best selves. We were so impressed with our engagement pictures that we booked her for a bridal portrait session, our rehearsal dinner, and wedding day. One of the things that distinguishes her from others is her philosophy on time and flexibility. For the day of the wedding, she stayed as long as we needed her to; none of these 5,8,12- hour maximum only packages. During all of the session, she made sure she had the shots we wanted and never rushed us. We cannot say enough good things about Jennifer." - Sarah G (Bride)

"Jenny, words cannot express how much I appreciate you & the amazing pictures you took.  I will truly cherish them for the rest of my life.  I also wanted to thank you for all of your hard work & emailing me so quickly & getting these books done.  You don't see that very often.  I can't wait to work with you in the future.  You seem so fun & relaxed!  Again, thank you so much for everything." - Julie W (Bride)

"You were absolutely amazing. The pictures are more than anyone could ask for and you were just great to work with, we so enjoyed having you there with us." -Pam U (Mother of the Bride)

"Jenny, I cannot thank you enough for photographing my wedding.  You got so many wonderful shots that I will cherish always.  You are fiercely talented and I hope your career continues to flourish.  More than that, you are a wonderful person and I can't imagine anyone else I would have wanted to be there.  I am so glad I got to meet you.  Keep in touch!" - Nicole L (Bride)

"Jennifer - Thank you for making the best day of our lives even more special!  You helped us feel so comfortable.  We'll always remember you." - Jeremy Y (Groom)

"Jenny Hodges is amazing to say the very least. After looking at multiple photographers for our engagement photos and wedding photos, we found Jenny and it was the BEST decision we made. Not only did we get an incredible photographer, but a very dear friend. I felt like I was spending my entire wedding day with someone who had been my friend for years. Her personality is stellar and she is always happy and in a great mood. She truly captured our wedding the way we had always hoped and dreamed. She was never a disruption and always a pleasure to be around. She truly captures the unexpected special little moments and also the planned moments so beautifully. She took our engagement photos and also our wedding photos, and all of them were amazing. We honestly loved all of our pictures and had so much fun hanging out with Jenny and our wedding party and family all day long taking pictures. She captured amazing pictures of us goofing around, tearing it up on the dance floor and committing our lives to one another. She blended right in, as if she had been a family friend for years. Everyone loved her and loved working with her and had nothing but the best to say about her and how much fun they had taking pictures with her. -Nicki M. (Bride)

"Jenny is brilliant and has a unique ability to catch the special moments of the day without you even knowing it. She gave direction without being pushy and dealt with out indecisiveness well. She worked with us (mostly my husband who gets so awkward in front of a camera which made us all laugh uncontrollably) and was able to get great shots regardless the situation." -Cindy T (Bride)

"thank you sooooooooooo much!!! :)  you are such an amazing photographer and I'm so thankful for you!! :)" - Carmen T. (Bride)

"Jenny is such a beautiful person inside and out. Our family and friends just raved about her pictures.

"She kept us all smiling with her genuine kindness and great passion for photography...I have 3 absolute favorites. One was in the surf in my husbands arms because the brilliance of the colors and moment were captured perfectly, another was a wedding party pyramid that just reminds me of how much fun we all had piled on that beach; and the third iis a photo of me draped piggyback style behind my husband that was done in black and white...Thank you for the beautifully captured memories!" -Amy M (Bride)

"I did a "Trash the Dress" session with Jenny (she was sadly booked on our wedding day), and I love all of her pictures even more than the ones my wedding photographer took on our wedding day! (And I LOVE my wedding pictures, so the fact that she outdid them surprised even me!) I have a couple of favorites. The ones by the lake and the rocks were all so amazing, and it was definitely my favorite location of the day. There was one in particular with me in the water, flipping my hair back, that is just spectacular. I was in awe of her talent to catch amazing action shots. I also really love the shot with me at the Biker Shak with my biker boots. I look like a chick you don't want to mess with, especially on her wedding day!" -Katie M (Bride)

"A good photographer brings more than technical skill to a shoot. Jennifer captures the emotions of her bride and groom, their friends and family in a way that only an artist can because she's experiencing the love she sees through her lens. The final product is proof." -Lyn W (Mother of the Groom)

"You did a wonderful job for Tara and Michael. That was a great evening and you captured it perfectly. The kids are thrilled with your work." -Tom W (Father of the Bride)

"We first met Jenny at Starbucks... we came in early but she was there even earlier than we were... very well prepared and with a contagious smile. On our wedding day I was running around so much with errands that I forgot to grab something to eat. I asked my MOH to go get me something and Jenny was so kind to offer me some of their food that they had brought themselves but never ate. Like I mentioned before... above and beyond what we expected! Oh and my brother-in-law who is also a photographer, from Houston also commented on how talented she is. We are very pleased to have chosen her as our wedding photographer!" -Jacqueline T (Bride)

"Wow Jenny!   I'm already in love with the shots.

"Jenny was friendly, so easy to talk with and so well organized! We were immediately impressed. Meeting her in person and seeing her passion for weddings made our decision easy! She stayed in contact with us through out our planning process and conferenced with us a few weeks before to finalize the details. She even called me the day before just to confirm everything once again. She was early the day of our wedding and was such a calming presence while taking our pre-ceremony photos! She was friendly with all of our family and friends, her presence just made the day even better. Jenny was one of our very best wedding decisions! She has blown us away with her professionalism and creativity. You can tell Jenny loves what she does and it shows in her amazing work!"  -Stephanie P (Bride)

Friendly and helpful in every way. She was always a text or email away, even if just to calm my nerves about something. She listened to what we liked and didnt like." -Amber B. (Bride)
