Jeff + Renee

Well first I should probably tell you that we are like newly weds with only 7 years of being husband and wife but we have known one another since we were toddlers! We grew up being neighbors and Jeff always lived right down the road from us but our love for one another did not happen till 2011 and we said " I Do" on August 13, 2013. We love to travel and have been blessed with the opportunity to visit Rome for our honeymoon, Ireland for Jeff's 50th birthday and the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park for my 50th! Highly recommend ALL of those for fantastic vacations!! We enjoy ballroom dancing, watching the Chicago Cubs, Kayaking down the river and time with our family (we have 9 grand-kids) so that keeps us on our toes! I LOVE anything with coconut and if I'm not working on pictures.. you can probably find me shopping at TJ Maxx!!

Live In The Moments You'll Never Forget..

HIRE RENEE!! Renee was referred to us by me uncle. I went to her social media sites and immediately fell in love with Renee's style of photography! She was the one and only photographer we met with and WE LOVED HER!! She photographed our engagement and wedding photos and they are beautiful. More than I could have ever imagined and hoped for! Renee and Jeff are the nicest people you will every meet and they go above and beyond to stay in communication, scout the best locations for pictures at the venue, and deliver the most gorgeous pictures!

When my now husband and I first met Renee and her husband Jeff, we were over the moon excited. We knew immediately after our meeting that we were going to pick them as our wedding photographers. Leading up to our wedding, Renee was extremely responsive and easy to talk to. We went over the timeline and adjusted it accordingly as I figured out more things for the big day. Once we finally made it to the big day....well the pictures just speak for themselves! Renee is extremely passionate about what she does and my husband and I will be forever grateful to have these photos. Her and Jeff made the day so much more FUN! They captured all the things we wanted and then some. In all honestly, you could barely even tell they were there during the ceremony...she was that AWESOME! I got SO many photos back and I am beyond thankful for all the hard work in editing that Renee does. My husband and I agree that hiring her as our photographer was worth EVERY PENNY! Also - Renee's USBS that she gives back your photos on are ADORABLE! So creative! I can't wait to meet up with her and Jeff in the future at Chick-fil-a! That's where we first met them and I intend to see her again someday! :)
