In order of event date
Jen is the most talented, professional, and personable photographer I have ever worked with. Not only did she serve as my photographer, but she also kept the whole wedding party on a strict timeline and made sure the day went as smooth as possible. She provided me with her cell number months before the wedding and encouraged me to shoot her a text or phone call if I had any questions whatsoever (regarding anything)! Jen made the day of my wedding, and even days leading up to it stress-free and fun! Both my husband and family absolutely adored her. It was almost like she was a part of the family on our special day. She has a way of making everyone feel so comfortable around her and gives so much direction regarding poses, etc. for those who aren’t so photogenic. I would recommend Jen to anyone! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CAPTURING MY FAIRYTALE, JEN!

We had a destination wedding in Dana Point and our wedding planner recommended a number of photographers. All of the photographers were professional, friendly, and showed us high-quality samples of their work. We chose Jen because we liked her personality (a great blend of discrete, personable, accommodating, professional, and friendly) and sample work the most; so far, we could not be any more satisfied. We got an initial group of proofs (about 100 images) within a few days of the wedding. The first set of pics were fantastic: they were a wonderful mix of portraits, spontaneous, artistic. She really knew how to capture the light, capture moments, capture the scene, and capture the people. Equally important was the footprint she left at the wedding. She was an amazing adjunct to our hotel planner and wedding planner, keeping everything flowing and progressing. Otherwise, she and her team were nearly invisible, blending in seamlessly. Always at the right place at the right moment but never obtrusive. If you’re looking for an exceptional and professional wedding photographer that does high end work, look no further. We highly recommend Jen as a wedding photographer.
– Mike, married on February 22, 2014 at St. Regis Monarch Beach
Jen is a true professional! She captured so many magical moments on our wedding day, while effortlessly keeping to a tight time-line. She told me from the beginning…She’ll watch the time so that I won’t have to. Thank goodness for that! So much was going on, I knew to just stick close to Jen. Needless to say, she is a fantastic photographer, who knows her stuff. My problem is that I have too many favorite pictures and I’m having trouble narrowing them down! Thank you for the memories, Jen!!!! You captured the happiness I felt on my wedding day!
– Heather, married on February 1, 2014 at Pelican Hill
Jen’s signature use of natural light is just the tip of the ice burg. In addition to great photos she brings a positive energy and tons of experience to the table. And who doesn’t love an Art Center graduate!?
– Justin, owner of Huntington Catering, March 2014
Before choosing our wedding photographer, we reviewed several different people that all came highly recommended by our wedding planner. Jen O’Sullivan’s work stood out among the rest of the photographers we visited. We knew when she did our family Christmas photo prior to the wedding that we picked the right photographer for our special day. She was very easy to work with and she did a great job working with our 3 year old daughter. Her ability to find amazing locations at the right time of day resulted in beautiful pictures. From the start of our wedding day to the end, Jen captured every moment that a bride and groom would want captured for their memories. Her attention to detail from rings, to attire, to flowers, to cake, to hair….was fantastic. She’s also very quick which is beneficial when you want to get the family photos done and start the celebration. The most important element to invest in at your wedding is your photographer as memories are priceless. Jen is worth every penny and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a fantastic photographer for any event.
– Sara, Newport Coast Wedding, married December 31, 2013
Jen was referred to us by Todd Hawkins and we could not be more pleased. A consummate professional, Jen is also funny, warm, creative and calming. She is a photographic ninja with the rare ability to be present and with you at every turn but not at all intrusive. She and her two assistants received kudos from everyone in our bridal party and family. I’ve seen the preview photos and I can honestly say that I have not looked or felt more beautiful than I did in Jen’s photos. I’d strongly encourage that the Vibiana staff work with Jen in the future.
– Teri, married on July 22, 2011 at Vibiana
When we met Jen, I was first impressed with her personality – professional, understanding, and I truly felt that our wants were her number one priority. We just got our photos, and as I look at them, here’s what goes through my mind: Amazing. Stunning. Beautiful. Professional. She absolutely captured our entire day – all the emotions, all the highs, all the fun. I would call anyone lucky that had her as their photographer, because they’re in for a treat. And she’s a fun person, too!!
– Eryc, married on April 11
I cannot elucidate how incredibly happy I am that we went with Jen for our wedding photography. Her skill with a camera is amazing, and she truly captured the day. Not only was she incredibly professional, but she had FUN and made the photos part of the enjoyment of the day. Looking over her work, I can see why she was so highly recommended by our coordinator. I would recommend her for any event. She has an ability to capture every candid moment as well as posed shots with an artistic flaire. She’s also really great with children.
– Jaysen, married on April 11
When I first meet Jen she was really easy to talk to, she knew how to explain things easily, and I could tell she was passionate about her job. I hired her not only to take our wedding photos, but our engagement pictures as well. Her prices were reasonable and affordable, and the quality of her services were exceptional. On the day of my wedding she not only made me feel comfortable, but my guests as well. Everyone throughout the night kept telling me what a great photographer I hired and I couldn’t agree more with them. Jen, was professional, organized, on top of things, helpful, energetic and so much fun! She was more than I could have asked for in a photographer! I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone! You will not be disappointed!
Love, Amber and Jeremy, married on April 5
I am so happy with our wedding photographs. Jen worked and her assistants worked really hard to be creative and provide the best photos possible. She even included (at no extra cost) a portrait studio, which the guests loved. Everyone is raving about the photos because they are so beautiful!
– Jessica and Chris, married on March 28
Jen with Save the Date Photography was a pleasure to work with. She made sure I got the photos I wanted and had great suggestions and imput for me based on her experience. There are photos I look back on and I didn’t even notice Jen was there and/or getting the shot. I was at total ease having her around on our BIG day.
The communication was never lacking, she was always very quick to respond before, during and after the entire process. I could not be happier with my choice, we have many great photos that we can cherish for years to come!
– Julie, married on November 11
Jen did my wedding about a week ago- I was amazed at her professionalism and her creativity. If I wanted a certain picture taken someone was there in a second and when I said I was done with the posed pictures she allowed me to take a break. She was extremely patient with my families “want-to-be” photographers, even giving them picture taking advice- which they all appreciated!. I would definitely recommend Save the Date Photo to anyone!
– Marcy, married on October 25
Jen is the BEST photographer out there! Her fantastic photographic skills made her our choice photographer and her great personality made her a joy to have as a part of the best day of my life. My husband and I are going to start our family soon and we will definitely be calling on Jen of Save the Date Photo to document the pregnancy and beyond. I can’t recommend her enough! A+++ 🙂
– Dana, married on July 27
Jen was wonderful and my pictures turned out amazing. She was not only on time but she was sweet and kind. She did everything in her power to make sure that my day was fun and stress free. She even gave me a diaper for my son when my future husband forgot his diaper bag! My parents paid for service and well…you get what you pay for. I would definitely recommend her to all my friends.
– Rhonda, married on July 12
We could not ask for better photographs that truly captured our entire wedding. Jen and her team made us feel so comfortable and were great to work with. The artistic aspect of our photographs were stunning. We definitely recommend and already have recommended her to family and friends. Pictures were absolutely breathe taking.
– JR & Denise, married on June 20
JEN O’SULLIVAN IS AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER. SHE PRODUCES EXCEPTIONAL PHOTOS. SHE IS DILIGENT AND COMMITTED TO GETTING THE PERFECT POSE, LIGHTING AND ENVIRONMENT TO GET AMAZING SHOTS. ALL OF MY GUESTS HAVE BEEN COMPLIMENTING ON HOW THE PHOTOS ARE INTERESTING AND BEAUTIFUL. SHE INCORPORATES THE NATURAL ASPECTS OF THE DAY AS WELL AS FORMALITY OF THE EVENT. I ALSO LOVE HOW SHE CAPTURES UNIQUE POSES OF THE OBJECTS I.E. BOUQUETS, SHOES, JEWELRY, AND DETAILS THAT ARE SPECIAL TO ONLY YOUR EVENT. JUST BOOK HER! YOU WON’T REGRET IT 🙂
– Vanessa, married on May 25
Jen, I wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience at Vanessa and Tyler’s recent wedding. I have received 49 emails from friends and family telling me what a superior job the photos are. Most people are stunned at the creativity and professional abilities of you and your assistants. Some of the words in these emails that describe your work are: OMG, superior, awesome, never seen anything like them, and my favorite “beyond words.”
I also wanted to tell you that the young man, Nathanial, who was taping the festivities was very impressed with the way you treated him. He is not a professional, but agreed to tape as a favor to us. He has been doing this for only friends and family and most of the time he has found the photographers to be rude and selfish. He told me how wonderful you were and how you respected his space. Thank you for being so understanding.
Once again thank you so much and from the bottoms of hearts we wish only the best for you, your assistants and your family. We will be sharing this experience with everyone and hope that it brings new business for you.
Sincerely, Linda Vadyak
– Linda (Vanessa’s mom)
Jen was unbelievably awesome! She made our wedding day stress free! Our pictures turned out gorgeous, and we had them to look at online in less then a week. We feel so lucky to have had her for our wedding.
– Danny and Dawn, married on May 17
Jen did an amazing job with our wedding photographs and the album. She had come highly recommended to us by our friends who had used her and we were not disappointed. She was extremely professional yet personable, thorough, and prompt at everything. We had a budget for our photos and she made sure to meet it, as opposed to many other vendors who will quote a price but then you end up spending a lot more in the end. We were so unbelievably happy with our photos and will cherish them forever.
-Connie, married on February 2
We got so much when we hired Jen. She was friendly, cheerful, accommodating, flexible, helpful, professional, and a joy to work with before the wedding, and especially on the day of. She answered all of our questions patiently when we met with her, agreed to meet with us again when we were having a hard time deciding on which photographer to choose. She was always prompt in answering phone calls and emails. She got to the wedding site way before I did on the wedding day and had already taken a bunch of pictures. She was a very calming presence on the day, barely noticed she was there, but when I needed something, she went beyond her duty as photographer to help me. She worked for 9 hours straight, running all around the place. And she was pregnant- no one could even tell! On top of all of that, our pictures are really really gorgeous. We are so happy with them, and get compliments constantly. She gave us every picture- over 2000- on CD, and put them all online. She offered way more than other photographers for the same price. What else do you want in a photographer?
-Marissa, married on July 29, 2007
Jen does exceptionally beautiful work. She is extremely professional and works well with the other vendors. She has a strong working knowledge of her profession and effortlessly guides her clients through the process, gently removing any questions or concerns in an already stressful time. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I simply could not be more thrilled with the entire process from our first meeting clear through the fabulous pictures. A true professional!
– Audrey, married on July 7, 2007
Jen is a wonderful photographer with amazingly creative photos! She is friendly and professional. I felt so comfortable being around her, even when she was taking photos of us getting ready! She was flexible with me and so helpful in the planning process, especially because I was out of state for most of my engagement completing my college degree. Thank you Jen!
– Katie, married on June 23, 2007
Jen made my wedding magical. She got every moment at my wedding so when I look at my pictures it is like being at my wedding all over again. She is amazing and the most talented photographer i have ever known. I can’t wait to use her services again.
– Nikki, married on June 16, 2007
Jen is awesome! I loved the pictures she took at our wedding. I’ve even had her do my pregnancy photos and our 1st family photo shoot. She is so easy to work with and has a great personality. I felt like she was part of the family.
– Jen, married on May 11, 2007
Jen O’Sullivan did an amazing job with our wedding pictures. She has such a creative eye, and gives you so many options to choose from. She is very professional, and has things done in a very efficient manner. After taking pictures for my wedding, she did such a great job that my mom had her take pictures at her wedding, and my sister will be using her for photography for her wedding as well.
– Erin, married on April 7, 2007
Jen did an amazing job at our wedding. We would recommend her to anybody, for any event. Considering how great she is to work with and the high quality of her work, her prices were more than reasonable.
– Stephen, married on April 7, 2007
Simply put, Jen is an amazing photographer! My wife and I are so happy with our wedding photos, and even more than that, with Jen herself. From day one she made us feel relaxed and took time to answer our many questions and to understand what we wanted. On the day of the wedding, Jen kept a perfect balance of invisibility and involvement – being there when we needed her, but never “taking over” the ceremony and reception as we’d seen with other less professional photographers. We were so impressed with her ability to capture shots that were both natural and artistic. She has a great eye for the kind of interesting details that convey the essence of things, and that gift, combined with a seeming ability to anticipate meaningful moments before they happen, made for TONS of incredible photos – I can’t tell you how many complements we’ve gotten! Obviously, we’d highly recommend Jen to anyone and everyone who’s looking for exceptional photography and an exceptional experience …
– Steve, married on May 17, 2007
What can I say about Jen but that she was amazing she took our Engagement photo and came to our Engagement party and took pictures. She was always on time and gave me such a variety of photo’s to choose from so easy to work with we even had to change the date of our wedding twice and she still worked with us with no hesitation. Hands down the best experience ever:)
– Angela, married on November 26, 2006
Flawless! Amazing! I’m trying to find words to describe just how fantastic Jen is and I can’t think of enough ways to say it. She was an absolute joy to work with and she captured our wedding perfectly! Suffice it to say, we were ecstatic with Jen and Save The Date Photography. If you need a photographer for your wedding, or for any event for that matter, please give her a call and see what she has to offer. You won’t be disappointed!
– Robert, married on September 24, 2006
My husband and I were very pleased with Save the Date photography. Our wedding and engagement pictures are beautiful and perfect. Jen (our photographer) captured every important memory and helped us to capture every detail. She was very flexible, easy to talk with, and opened about all the special needs we had and pictures that we wanted. We could not be happier with our pictures.
– Rebecca, married on July 30, 2006
Jen, The photos are beyond stunning – and lively, and spirited, and poetic, and funny! You captured absolutely everything at our wedding – and you so beautifully caught the spirit of our friends and family. I don’t even know how to thank you for this. I really am speechless.
– Robin, married on July 9, 2006
Any of my past clients would be happy to speak with you about the service I provided.

I think what I like the best about Jen’s work is that it’s like having one of your best friends or a close family member taking the pictures…she always seems to capture the perfect emotions on film…and you never even seem to notice she is there.

Jen, I want to personally compliment and thank you for the fantastic job you did in capturing my wife’s surprise party. The photos were fantastic and provided fun “after party” conversation… everyone ordered photos! The biggest compliment comes from all the guests who said more then once, “I don’t remember the photographer ever being there.” Thanks again for making the party that much more special and memorable.
– Jason, Stevenson Ranch
Special events are about memories…it’s what’s left over after the party has ended! The pictures that my family have received from Jen have created lasting images in our minds that will be cherished for a lifetime!
– Chellie & David, Stevenson Ranch
Dear Jen: We just wanted you to know how much your talented service has meant to our family over the years. Your journalist style of photography has captured more moments that would have otherwise slipped by. Whether it be a birthday party or a very special holiday celebration, your service has provided us with the ability to be “in the moment” instead of behind the camera. You and your crew have a stealth like approach to getting that perfect shot. We are so grateful for your services and look forward to filling our family photo albums with your “picture perfect” prints in the future. Thank you again.
