"best of the best"
Jeff is absolutely amazing. He is the best of the best. He
was able to take pictures of the entire bridal party and was
extremely patient with everyone especially the kids. I am so
happy with my pictures that I will cherish the rest of my
~ Ashley and Colin, 8/29/2015
"kept us on time"
We just got our pictures back and I love all of them. Not to
mention Jeff was so easy to work with. He was prompt in
answering every email and phone call I made to him. On the
day of he had a list of the pictures we discussed prior to
the wedding and he was sure to get them all done in the time
frame we planned for on the timeline. He did a great job
keeping us on time. He also was good about telling us how to
stand so the pictures would look good and flattering. I'm
very happy with all of my pictures and would recommend Jeff
to everyone looking for a photographer! His assistant Becky
was also amazing, she made me feel calm before walking down
the isle and helped me with my dress during the pictures.
She made sure my dress laid well in all the shoots. :)

"takes charge when he needs to"
Jeff was some of the best money spent on our wedding.
Everything you've read about him is true, you'll get amazing
pictures, easy to work with, the list goes on. He knows
exactly what he's doing in any situation and takes charge
when he needs to. We used him for both our engagement and
wedding pictures and we have close to a thousand amazing
pictures documenting our engagement, ceremony, reception,
and everything along the way. He even knows the area so well
that he can help in a pinch if you need a good place to take
pictures at. Jeff is definitely a master at wedding

"I had time to relax"
Since I live out of town, we had emailed a bit before the
wedding but the first time I actually met Jeff was on my
wedding day. In the emails, we were able to create a viable
timeline (I actually had extra time to relax a bit before
the reception!) and ensure all the photos I wanted were
already listed out. Throughout the day, Jeff and his team
worked so hard to get the perfect pictures, including making
sure we got a great sunset picture at the reception or
getting a 'superhero' picture for my nephew where the rays
of light coming through a window looked like they were
coming out of his wrists like Spiderman's nets (such an
adorable picture!). I believe this also speaks to his
creative and caring nature - not a lot of photographers
would have recognized that last opportunity. The pictures
are absolutely fantastic and the photo booth was a huge hit.
About midway through the reception, he also had already made
a slideshow of pictures from earlier in the day which was so
amazing! I loved being able to look back at the day with my
family and friends all around me (and since I had people
from all over the world come in, I would have never had that
chance). Lastly, his turn around time for the album was very
impressive. He made extra pages that you could add into the
album and his website makes editing the album a breeze. I
would totally recommend him again and again!

"Patient, professional, creative"
Jeff Schaefer and his assistant did a fantastic job during
our 4th of July wedding. Jeff is a great photographer! We
were very pleased with his patient, professional, and
creative style. Jeff was an absolute pleasure to work with.
Picking the perfect wedding photographer is extremely
important and we could not have been more pleased with our
decision. We are excited to have such great memories to look
back on and thanks to Jeff, reminiscing will be so much fun.
Thank you, Jeff for helping to make our special day so
memorable and for the time, effort, and hard work you put
into taking such wonderful pictures. We would recommend Jeff
to anyone and the reasonable price was an added bonus!
~ Sarah and Doug, 7-4-2014
"captured special candid moments"
Jeff was very professional about everything in explaining
what he wanted for a particular shot and capturing those
special candid moments when you thought no one was taking
the picture. My wife and I have looked back on Jeff's
pictures and absolutely loved the ones we had to choose from
for our albums. Jeff was extremely patient and knew exactly
what kind of picture he wanted to showcase for our wedding.
Thankfull does not begin to explain how wonderful my wife
and myself will feel many years from now when we look back
on our pictures. So thanks again for our wonderful day!
~ Belinda and Rich, 5/23/2014
"helped make my day perfect"
Very pleased with the pictures! I had a great experience
with Jeff and could not be happier. I even had girls from
both high school and college contact me to ask who took my
wedding photographs! Jeff was very easy to work with, and
given the opportunity, I would choose to work with him
again! He helped make my day perfect, and we had so much fun
taking our pictures!! Excellent work!! You will not be
~ Erica and Nick, 8/1/2014
"pictures in less than two weeks"
We are so happy that we chose to go with Jeff Schaefer
Photography for our wedding! We have had so many complements
on our pictures. Jeff and his assistant worked well with us
and helped us plan out a schedule that worked for our day
and venue. We also had him set up a photo booth, which was
so much fun and the album from it is a great keepsake! We
got our final pictures in less than two weeks! We highly
~ Kristen and Sean, 8/2/2014
"great with kids"
Jeff did an amazing job capturing our wedding. The images
are beautiful. The turn around time for delivery for both
the engagement shoot and wedding was very impressive. The
book that came with our package is of phenomenal quality.
Jeff and his assistant/second shooter were very professional
and great with kids. We couldn't have asked for a better
experience and would recommend him for anyone!
~ Sarah and Nick, 2/7/2014
"looked like something out of a magazine"
Jeff was a pleasure to work with. We had our wedding over
the summer and Jeff was always prompt getting back to us
with any questions. He is so professional and our pictures
looked like something out of a magazine. We had so many
compliments and just love reliving our day through our
pictures. I would highly recommend Jeff Schaefer
~ Maria and Neil, 6/6/2014
"aren't the cliché wedding shots"
Jeff is very personable, and his pictures are amazing! His
attention to detail was so fantastic; if we had any concerns
about ties being straight, etc., he made sure to pay special
attention to that, so we could get the result we wanted. He
is also so creative. We have a variety of posed / candid
pictures that aren't the cliché wedding shots. At the
reception, Jeff went around the dance floor and seemed to
have every guest in at least one picture. When we looked at
the results, we didn't receive back a bad picture! Jeff also
put together a fantastic album for us. I don't have a bad
thing to say about him!
~ Lindsay and Brandon, 7/19/2014
"very personable and did not dominate"
I can not say enough good things about the job Jeff did at
my daughter's wedding. First, he was so organized and helped
us plan for the wedding day. On the day of the wedding he
was very personable and did not dominate the event. At the
wedding and reception, you hardly knew he was there, yet he
took all the shots we wanted. The pictures were fantastic.
So many spectacular shots, both posed and candid. The best
part, though, was working with Jeff afterwards to create the
album. He was so flexible and accommodating. He touched up
photos, for example, to remove exit signs or other things in
the background. He allowed us to move photos around and
group them the way we wanted. There were so many great shots
that we ended up adding pages to the album. Plus he gave us
a CD with all the pictures, included his touched up photos.
When we received the final album, my wife just looked at it
and cried. It was that good. I am so happy that we picked
Jeff and highly recommend him.
~ Shannon and Brandon, 1/25/2014
"nothing ever looks posed"
I cannot express how awesome Jeff and his assistant were at
our September wedding. He was so organized and knew exactly
how to make our vision come to life without me having to
ask. He knows exactly what to do and how to do it to get the
perfect picture and nothing ever looks posed. He knows how
to make your wedding stress free and makes you feel relaxed
and comfortable. The pictures turned out even better than I
imagined. There is a reason you need a good photographer on
your wedding day. And Jeff is definitely it! I recommend him
~ Jennifer and Bryan, 9/20/2014
"photos are breathtaking"
Jeff photographed our engagement session and our wedding
and we could not be happier with the results. I was very
picky in selecting a photographer and I believe that Jeff
Schaefer is the one of the best photographers in the area
and has the best value. Our photos are breathtaking and Jeff
and his assistant did such a wonderful job capturing all the
details and special moments of our wedding day. We have
received so many compliments on our photos, and our guests
LOVED the live photo booth at the wedding. He also set up a
slideshow preview by the photo booth of the photos from the
ceremony and formal shoots so everyone could see them right
away! It was such a cool touch and something I've never seen
before. I can't wait for the wedding album, which was
beautifully laid out and available online for me to preview
and edit (and I didn't make many changes). Jeff was easy to
work with and I could just relax and enjoy the day, fully
confident that everything would turn out beautifully. He and
his assistant were both very professional and responsive to
any requests or concerns I had on the wedding day. He even
drove up to Notre Dame to shoot our engagement photos last
year. Great service and truly incredible photographs! I
can't recommend him enough!
~ Kevin and Julia, 9/13/2014
"gives you their undivided attention"
Jeff did an amazing job with our wedding photos. The
first time we met with him I knew right away that I trusted
him to do our photos. Our photos turned out absolutely
beautiful and we couldn't be happier. The wedding album
totally took our breath away when we saw it. My husband and
I both are so excited to be able to share our wedding day
photos with family and friends for years to come. Not only
are Jeff and his team great photographers but they go above
and beyond to make your wedding perfect. They make you feel
special throughout the day and gives you their undivided
attention and making everything run smooth for your photos
especially with the little things having an emergency bag
prepared with hairspray, Tide stick, make-up, bobby-pins,
etc. Thank you Jeff and Morgan! We look forward to doing
another photo session with you in the near future.
~ Kim and Dan, 7/13/2013
"beautiful portraits done FAST"
Jeff has an amazing eye! The portraits we did ranged from
serious and romantic to funny to beautiful detail shots. He
accommodated my requests for particular photos, even
approached a guy dressed like a pirate and got him to pose
with us. He helped the day run smoothly, helped direct
everyone to where they needed to be, and got beautiful
portraits done FAST - as I requested - so we could go party!
He even had a slideshow going at the reception of pictures
from the wedding, which everyone loved. I was having a kind
of complex that day that I didn't look very pretty... until
I saw that slideshow of the photos. I was wowed! He was the
more expensive of our choices, but the photos are what will
last after the big day is over. I definitely recommend Jeff
~ Kaitlyn and Josh, 10/6/2012
"put forth all his effort to make sure we were satisfied"
Jeff was absolutely fantastic and our photos turned out
wonderful. I really felt like Jeff put forth all his effort
to make sure we were satisfied with our photos. His
attention to detail is second class to no one and I would
absolutely recommend Jeff and use him again. A little on the
pricey side, but you get what you pay for! Very happy
~ Jenny and Greg, 10/15/2011
"the calming influence I needed on my wedding day"
We met with several photographers before booking Jeff, and
on initial meeting, he was the most put-together,
professional, and accommodating. During the months/weeks/days
leading up to the wedding, Jeff was easy to contact and
responded to my emails/phone calls quickly. He is very
organized, which I greatly appreciated as the wedding day
has enough craziness of it's own!! On my wedding day, Jeff
was on time, relaxed, and kept the day moving efficiently --
not to mention the photos were GORGEOUS!!! Everyone LOVED
the photos taken earlier in the day that were displayed
during the reception. We have just gotten our album in the
mail and it is stunning as well. I would recommend Jeff to
anyone - he was very much the calming influence I needed on
my wedding day, and is an exceptional photographer who
really delivers an amazing product. BOOK HIM NOW!!!!
~ Melissa and Robert, 4/28/2012
"I wasn't planning on spending so much on the
photography, but when we got the pictures back we were
Jeff was great! We hired him for the ceremony, wedding
luncheon, and reception. Our wedding and luncheon was about
a 2 hour drive from our reception venue- and we were married
on St. Patrick's day so traffic got a little nuts! He stuck
with us the whole time and was SO flexible. He even ended up
staying longer than we had planned. I won't lie, I wasn't
planning on spending so much on the photography but when we
got the pictures back we were speechless! Jeff is an
extremely talented photographer. Not only did he take
breathtaking formal shots, but my favorites were the little
candid moments he caught that most people might miss. You
only wear the dress once, your flowers will wilt, but you
will have pictures form you wedding day forever- get a
~ Hannah and Matt, 3/17/2012
"It was storming... but he made my pictures look like it
was sunny and beautiful"
Jeff was a wonderful photographer. It was storming, and I
mean lightning, thunder, and rain, but he made my pictures
look like it was sunny and beautiful outside. The only
indication of the storm was my veil was floating around from
the wind, which he made look ethereal. The book of pictures
were so amazing that I added money to get more pages. I am
so happy with my pictures. You get what you pay for!
~ Cheryl & Bill, 11/06/2010
"won't find another photographer of this quality in this
I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone searching for a
wedding photographer. Our photos are absolutely amazing!
Jeff was so laid back and easy going on our wedding day. He
let us enjoy our day, while he captured it on camera for us,
without intruding. Jeff is a great value for the money. You
won't find another photographer of this quality in this
~ Mike and Lauren, 11/4/2011
"just the right mixture of serious/posed and candid
Jeff is without a doubt the best photographer that I have
ever had the pleasure of working with. He was always very on
top of things and I never felt like I had to make sure that
he didn't forget anything. He is a very fun guy and his
pictures are gorgeous, and he has just the right mixture of
serious/posed and candid shots. Jeff was definitely one of
the best parts of my wedding day
