Kind Words & Reviews
"Anyone can take photos, but Jennifer captured the real us as we really are. Nothing felt out of place, contrived or awkward. This is important because it’s what allows the photos to be exceptional in their balance, beauty and presentation of authentic emotion. Jennifer has a remarkable ability to see and capture moments. Better yet, she does it in an enjoyable, relaxed and comfortable manner where we couldn’t help but have fun and be ourselves. Her energy brings out the best in you and her truly creative eye captures it. Working with Jennifer was a treat. She’s professional, courteous, prompt and loves what she does."

"We absolutely LOVED working with Jennifer and Brian over the last few months. Jennifer has been SO helpful during the entire planning process, offering suggestions and responses to things that do not even have anything to do with being our photographer. She has helped us with things such as planning a wedding day timeline, to finding somewhere to buy long-lasting sparklers for our first dance. Seriously, she goes above and beyond the job! Both her and Brian are just such delightful people to work with and made us feel comfortable as soon as we met them at our engagement shoot (and believe me, we were nervous)! She is truly an expert at what she does, and got so many AMAZING shots at our engagement shoot. Brian also filmed an engagement video for us, which was just gorgeous! He did such a good job getting the perfect shots and edited them together beautifully. Honestly, my fiancé Chris made fun of me for watching the engagement video over and over and over again – but I just loved it SO much! We cannot say enough good things about these two! They were wonderful to have around on the wedding day and from the moment they arrived knew exactly what they were doing and got things moving – starting with the little details, such as dress, shoes, rings, etc. Not a second was wasted! Jen and Brian checked in with us throughout the wedding day, but also were able to step back and let things flow naturally, which was the perfect balance. They were such a calming presence to have around, but fun and professional all at the same time. We cannot wait to see more of our wedding photos, and I’m sure I will be back on here raving about them again! Seriously, you are not going to find a better duo for wedding photography!!!"

"When Chris and I were looking for a photographer, the obvious and most important thing was that they would be able to capture our memories in a raw, real, and beautiful way. The second most important thing was that they would have a connection with us, and the people we love and have an understanding of all that we hold dear.
Jennifer and her partner Brian not only took the most gorgeous true-to who-we-are photos, but connected with us and so many of our family through their camera lenses. They were so much more than that too…
From the beginning, Jennifer was perfectly balanced in her approach with us being professional and attentive yet having a calming, relaxed presence that soothed our nerves when we first took our engagement photos. She really let Chris and I do "US" - only slightly guiding us in our positions to capture the scenery just right or flatter our best features. We knew we had struck GOLD with Jennifer just by the memories made, the fun times, and the overall fantastic experience of the day! When the sneak peaks came out in a few days we felt like me had WON the photography lottery with the stunning pictures she presented us.
It was such a relief not having to worry - as far as photography goes - on our wedding day. We had no doubt Jennifer would take care of us and our memories. If it could not get any better, Brian, Jen's photography partner, was a delightful addition to her package and made Chris feel at ease when taking pictures of the groomsmen.
The two of them together were a peaceful yet powerful force to be reckoned with, with photos covering the entirety of the day including those special moments that you didn't think were caught on camera - that small tear of joy from a loved one or that goofy face when sneaking a sip of fireball - every moment was perfectly captured.
I could go on and on about Jennifer Picard Photography but I will close by saying the photos say it all. Chris and I have the most treasured group of photos of a day we will never forget. Photos of the moments we shared and photos of the things we were too wrapped up to see but are so glad we have.
Thank you Jen and Brian for your mindful, and peaceful presences and for your IMMENSE talents in capturing our very special day."

“Jennifer is not only talented in her art as a photographer, she is also very professional, and has great customer service. We met Jen on a chilly February day last year for our engagement photos. She captured some amazing photos on our beautiful cloudy Vancouver session, and the back ground was only a feature of that beauty. When you can capture a moment, or emotion, THAT is talent. Anyone can take a photo, but a great photographer shows you a story. Jen showed our story and made the wedding day relaxing and fun! The photos we received are absolutely stunning, moody and intimate. I would highly recommend Jen if you are looking for someone to truly capture your special moments.”

“My Husband, Mitchell and I hired Jen to photograph our wedding and we honestly can’t say enough great things about her or Pauline her Second Photographer.
I was especially happy with how at ease Mitchell was with her, knowing that would translate through the photos the day of. We had engagement photos included in our package and I would highly recommend other couples to do the same. We never had professional photos before and this gave us both the opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera with Jen before our wedding day. We wanted our engagement photos to be taken in a special and remote location that required a hike and Jen was totally up for the adventure, no questions asked. The photos she captured for us were stunning and we treasure them almost as much as our wedding photos.
The days leading up to the wedding, Jen answered my various emails about location, timing, etc quickly and patiently. She had great suggestions for locations that would work best for our group and vision. The day of the wedding Jen and Pauline arrived with positive, fun and relaxing energy which we really appreciated. They were able to immerse themselves so naturally into our day and because of that they captured many genuine and candid moments that tell our story better then any posed shot could. As we received our photos from Jen we were blown away. We’d had high expectations of Jen from the beginning and she exceeded them all. While going through the photos, we laughed, we cried, we were in awe of everything she did. We were able to feel and relive so many emotions while looking at our photos and we know where going to feel that way every time we look at them for years to come.
There aren’t really words for how much we love our photos. And everyone we’ve shared them with has said the same thing. I couldn’t have imagined anyone else capturing those memories for us. Jen is an artist and a professional. If you are looking for a first class photographer, who is lovely to work with and has her own unique style then she is the photographer for you.”

“Jennifer is one of the most incredible photographer’s we have ever had the privilege of meeting. She photographed our elopement on the Sunshine Coast and did an absolutely incredible job. We felt so comfortable and at ease with her behind the lens, which is such a rarity for us. She’s such a kind-hearted, caring person with amazing talent! I would highly recommend her if you are in the market for a photographer in and around the lower mainland.”

"We loved our photo session with Jen on our wedding day. From the beginning she was very friendly and easy to work with. We had to arrange everything from overseas and she was quick to respond to any of our questions or concerns via email or phone. Which was very comforting! She was very professional and organized on the day and the wedding photography felt effortless and fun. We couldn't be happier with the final product, the photos turned out absolutely stunning. We constantly get compliments from family and friends on the quality of the photos. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer to capture their special moments."

"Jennifer's love for nature and the softness of her photos spoke to us immediately and we knew that she had to photograph our wedding in Whistler! All of the little details she captured that we were to busy to notice and all of the special moments that we will now be able to remember forever. Now we just wish she lived closer so she could photograph our little growing family. Thank you so much for capturing our special day. We can't thank you enough!!"
Alisha & Glenn — Whistler, BC — Wedding
"My husband I and were searching for a wedding photographer for months, when my girlfriend showed me her wedding photos that Jennifer took, I knew right away she would be the perfect photographer for our destination wedding in Mexico. She has a unique style to her photography, which makes the images she captures so surreal and dreamy. We also booked her for our engagement shoot at a beautiful secluded lagoon in Mexico a day before the wedding. She chose the location and it was such a perfect spot. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photos and we've had so many compliments - even strangers have told us they love our photos! We are so glad we chose Jennifer to capture our destination wedding!"
Mika & Jay — Hotel Riu Palace, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico — Wedding
"When my husband and I started planning our wedding on the Sunshine Coast one of our top priorities was finding a wedding photographer that could not only capture us as a couple but could also capture the essence of the West Coast. As soon as I saw Jen's work I fell in love and I knew that we had to have her as our wedding photographer. Throughout all of the stages of planning Jen was amazing to work with! She was always easy to get in touch with and she was very flexible in creating a package that fit with what we wanted. For two camera shy people, Jen made us feel comfortable and completely at ease in front of the lens and really made it a fun experience. We absolutely love our photos by Jen. They reveal the beautiful west coast landscape and tell the story of our wedding and love all on their own. We will cherish them for years to come."
