Maria + Sam (Binghamton, NY wedding)
We love Jen so much we had to give an update from our wedding on January 19, 2018 in Binghamton, New York! Jen’s talent is clearly evident from all of photos posted on this page, and we knew our wedding photos taken by her would be beautiful, but today she posted a sneak peak photo and our jaws literally dropped. Family members and friends who saw it told us it looked something from the cover of a magazine. Her work is truly art.
Beyond her talent, Jen is a professional who is clearly super passionate about capturing life’s most important moments. Her assistant Brittany was lovely and very easy to work with. They both worked SO hard all day for us and it did not go unnoticed.
Future Brides and Grooms: do yourselves a HUGE favor and hire Jen before she is whisked off to a big city to shoot editorials and movie stars!
Esther + Jake (Gilbertsville Farmhouse Wedding Venue)
Jen Pecka is talented, easy going and extremely thoughtful. Jen photographed my wedding at Gilbertsville Farm House and she created an environment that was supportive and natural (far from awkward which we were afraid of). Some of my favorite wedding memories are ones when my husband and I were taken away from the party and spent some time together with Jen doing her thing. Aside from the picture taking, Jen took time before our wedding to get to know us and our families. She made an effort yo truly understand the unique traditions and schedule of the day. She made sure she knew exactly where to be when and didn’t miss a beat. We love Jen and our wedding photos. I think she loves them too because we are featured as her background photo

Jen did my wedding 09/10/16. She was amazing!! My pictures were more then I could ever ask for. She made me feel comfortable and laugh the entire day. She became part of the family that day. I couldn’t imagine my day without her. The moments she captured I will cherish for a life time. You will never regret hiring her for any event. She has really found her calling! Everyone I have showed my pictures to loved every single one! Jen thank you for being you! Much love your spirit animal!

We had three wonderful experiences with Jen Pecka during our engagement shoot, wedding shoot, and later style shoot. I first reached out to Jen after coming across her photography online and was impressed by how detailed, professional and quick to respond she was. Jen is incredibly talented and during during each of our sessions, she was able to create a comfortable and fun environment. The photographs that Jen took were absolutely GORGEOUS; she was able to capture our personalities while incorporating in beautiful elements of nature into the shots. It was an absolute pleasure working with Jen and we couldn’t be happier with the photographs and the overall experience.

I absolutely loved every picture from our wedding day!! Everyone’s personality in our family was captured perfectly throughout the day. She was so patient and caring of all of our guests and wedding party but took charge when she had to and I LOVED that! She really has a wonderful gift! Thank you so much Jen. We hope to use your services soon!!! Xoxo #yasqueenyas

We found Jen Pecka online through her website and Facebook page and reached out as soon as we saw her work. She answered us immediately and arranged a phone call to discuss our questions and ideas. As soon as we talked to her we knew that Jen absolutely understood what we were looking for and shared the vision that we had for our wedding day. I cannot express enough how much we LOVED working with Jen – from that first call all the way to our wedding day. Jen captured our day even more beautifully than I remember it and she maneuvered us through all of the photos we requested fluidly while still making sure everyone was having a blast. Now having our pictures in hand I again cannot express enough how much I love Jen’s work and how she has captured our day. We will treasure these photographs for the rest of our lives. It is clear that Jen loves the work that she does and is an extremely talented photographer as well as all around awesome person! One last note – trust Jen when she suggests a certain pose or location – she knows what she is doing!!

We found Jen Pecka online, browsing through the endless list of photographers in the Binghamton area. She was the first photographer that we met with and we fell in love! She is kind, creative, inviting and warm. We both agreed quickly that this was the person we wanted to work with. So far, she has only photographed our engagment pictures, which are BEAUTIFUL.
Jen kept telling me to stop fake smiling and in return I laughed because I knew exactly what she was talking about. The first thing that my best friend/maid of honor said about the photos was that I was not fake smiling in ANY of them.
I highly recommend her for anyone looking for someone down to earth, easy going, adventurous and professional to be their photographer!
Thank you Jen for making us both feel so comfortable in front of a camera. I can’t wait for the wedding. I am so glad you will be there to share one of the most special days of our lives with us!
Holly + Dan’s Engagement (Ithaca, NY)
We found Jen Pecka Photography online looking for a photographer for our upcoming wedding. Jen’s photos stood out from the competition as fresh and fun. We’re having an outdoor wedding, and we loved how she incorporated natural landscapes into her shots. And bonus, engagement photos are included in the wedding package price!
Jen went above and beyond for us during our engagement shoot, braving sub-freezing temps and snow with no mittens to capture the perfect shot. Having never had professional photos taken, we didn’t know what to expect, but Jen and her partner were fun to work with and made us laugh and relax. The pictures turned out great! Jen did a wonderful job of editing and making the colors and scenery really pop. Our friends and family can’t stop talking about how beautiful and unique they are. We can’t wait to have Jen at our wedding in June! We highly recommend Jen Pecka Photography!
Brittni + Greg (Syracuse, NY)
We worked with Jen for our wedding and she couldn’t have done a better job!
She became more than our photographer-she became a great friend. From the beginning, she worked with us to make us feel at ease with the whole wedding. From the complementary engagement shoot to the pre-planned wedding timeline, she really knows how to start taking care of you before your special day even begins.
She was very accommodating and worked with us throughout the wedding day timeline in order to capture the special moments. She was able to get all the special photos from our list even though the day was hectic and stressful. Her focus was on us and our needs the entire day.
Jen has such an outgoing personality and was kind and cooperative with all the other vendors. It made the day go smoothly. When we received the photos, they were more than what we could imagine. She captured the special moments which we will cherish for a lifetime. From the smallest details to the major events during the day, everything was captured perfectly. We highly recommend Jen Pecka Photography. It was such a pleasure to work with her and we would love to work with her again in the future!
Kathryn + Dominic (Binghamton, NY)
Jen takes amazing photos and is great to work with! Through her lens she captured our wedding day just as it felt. We love that our photos look and feel so natural! In our wedding album you can feel the anticipation of the day, the perfect weather, and our happiness!
Sarah + Ryan (Binghamton, NY)
Jen is absolutely amazing! She knew just how to capture our personalities and make the pictures reflect our love for each other perfectly. She works very well with her surroundings, making every background look stunning! She’s very professional but also so friendly and relate-able! There’s never an awkward moment, she coaches you so patiently! I would highly recommend her to anyone, I really have no complaints!
Maria + Sam (Vestal, NY)
We hired Jen last year to be our photographer for our upcoming wedding in January 2018. We hadn’t met her in person before that but were so impressed with the photos on her website we knew immediately we wanted her to photograph our wedding.
Due to our crazy work schedules, we didn’t get around to taking our engagement photos until about 3 months before our wedding. Jen was super flexible with us even when we had to change the date multiple times. Admittedly, we were very nervous for our engagement pictures. We had never had professional pictures taken together before and were so worried about feeling awkward or uncomfortable or worse, hating how we looked in them! However, Jen was so lovely and made us feel comfortable the whole time. She gave direction, but also let us do what felt natural. We recently got our photos back from her and we love them! It was a very cold (and sometimes rainy) day, but the photos turned out so beautiful – we could not be happier with choosing Jen to capture our big day for us!

I met Jen Pecka at a wedding expo and was instantly drawn to her warm personality and gorgeous photography featuring natural lighting. She was fun to work with and got along so well with our other vendors. I highly recommend her for your special day!
