What Clients Are Saying...
Jennifer is such an amazing photographer.
I've had her work on 4 different projects each with unique personalities. Three were business portrait sessions and one was family portraits. Each time, she captured the true person inside that was ready to be seen. When it was finally my turn to be photographed for my new business, my first reaction to the results was "Yes, this is what it feels like to be me!" I recommend her for any type of photo work when authenticity is one of the major goals! ~
I loved working with Jennifer!
As an Interior Designer I spent hours going through my wardrobe trying to imagine the shots. But the beauty of letting people do what they do best is allowing them to be in their zone and Jennifer was! While I was being made up she confidently chose from my clothing items without even seeing them on me. Within moments of being behind the camera Jennifer had my full trust. We were conversational - laughing and yes I had to fight some tears (to save my make-up) too! The beauty of letting go is to allow her vision and passion to flow. You get to be seen from a fresh perspective. Trust, Ease, Creativity, Realness & Professionalism starting from the first communication. I highly recommend Jennifer! You'll feel your best and she'll capture *you* there. Not least posting my new headshot on Facebook was "fabulous" ! ~
Such a pleasurable experience!
We asked Jennifer to take my daughter's senior high school photos. My daughter has always been uncomfortable in front of the camera for posed pictures. I thought Jennifer may be able to put my daughter at ease and capture her truer essence. Jennifer did that and so much more. She suggested doing an outside photo shoot, instead of the in-studio which is more formal. The outdoor setting at the beach, downtown Alameda and in a quiet neighborhood was just perfect for who my daughter is. Taking pictures with our small dog? Jennifer said okay because it's such a big part of my daughter's life. Jennifer even made the dog look good in the photos. So grateful to Jennifer for her creative energy, flexibility and encouragement all throughout the process! ~
I can't believe how easy my session was with Jennifer!
I was also very impressed at how she really got a sense of who I am and how I wish to present myself to my patients, and to the world at large. She was very comfortable in bringing my own strengths and vulnerabilities out in front of the camera in such a way that the images captured were full of life. My friends, family, and colleagues have all been awe-struck at the beauty and realness of Jennifer's images. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and I am so thrilled to have these shots for my own professional development. Hands down, the best photographer I have ever worked with. Thanks Jennifer! ~
Jennifer is fantastic!
She makes you feel so at ease before and during the shoot and finds shots that are flattering and reflect the qualities you want to show the world. And she works quickly too! Her results were amazing (as you can tell from her website!) ~
My experience with Jennifer was indeed perfect!
I wanted new head shots for both personal and professional needs and she delivered exactly what I wanted. It was a great experience and she made me feel very at ease, the photos came out exactly with the right combination of what I wanted to convene and the process was so easy to work with both in personal and on-line. I highly recommend Jennifer as the photographer to use both personally and professionally. ~
Absolutely a 5-star experience and a 5-star result.
I needed a new head shot for my professional website and for online profiles. I wanted to get it done right this time. I found Jennifer on Yelp, and once I checked out her website, I knew she was just right. Great choice. Right from the start, Jennifer was so easy to work with just setting up the best time and coordinating with my hair and makeup appointments. She's very professional and organized, but also very pleasant to work with. She was also completely tuned into me, and what I wanted from this. She really listens and pays attention. I was a bit anxious about the whole thing, since i usually feel so awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera. But I felt completely at ease with Jennifer; she is so warm and encouraging. Much to my surprise, I actually enjoyed the whole shoot. As for the result: I LOVE my new photos!! These are absolutely the best photos of me I've ever had! And the response to my new head shots has been truly gratifying. I highly recommend Jennifer Graham!! ~
I was reluctant about getting head shots done for my new business.
It seemed so self-indulgent. Plus I believe myself to be wildly un-photogenic. But once Jennifer and I started "creating" together (as she calls it - a totally apt description), and giggling our heads off, I forgot what we were there to do. I had a blast and could have stayed for far longer than the hour it took. She first worked with me to set an intention for the shoot - what did I want the photos to convey? It was a perfect way to set the space. She relaxed me completely, made me laugh, reminded me to breathe, and had me shift my body in subtle ways that made all the difference both in how I felt and how the pictures turned out. The afternoon left me in the lightest mood I'd been in in awhile. Jennifer's gift is not only taking photos, but also bringing forth the part of a person that glows. I felt it in the session and then saw it in the pictures -- which, after a session like that, weren't going to turn out bad. She ended up sending me 111 brilliant shots from which to choose 3 (I'm still choosing). Sooooo, if you're seeking a photo shoot that doesn't feel like a photo shoot, and for photos that convey the most essential you, get yourself to Jennifer Graham's studio (and say hi to her adorable cat Gia for me). ~
Jennifer quite simply ROCKS!
Not only is she a completely gifted, talented, creative and awesome photographer, she is so much fun to be around that she increases the fun value at any event. Everyone is always smiling around her and they feel at ease in front of her camera because she makes you feel like the most beautiful creature ever. And because of her very skilled eye to find the beauty in everything, and her sweet nature, she actually succeeds in capturing the fullness of beauty in all of her subjects in her stunning photographs. My only regret is that I met her AFTER my wedding! Fortunately though I've been able to work/play with her for many other events and she always surpasses expectations! ~
