Words can’t describe how truly wonderful Jenna at Bear and Sparrow has been for both our engagement shoot and photographing our wedding day. She was extremely professional and delivered us stunning photos on both occasions. Jenna was warm and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She made the time to really get to know our style and personalized the shoot around our personalities. Documenting your engagement and wedding day are once in a lifetime milestones – trusting Jenna at Bear and Sparrow photography is worth every penny. We look forward to having her shoot our family photos for years to come.

When selecting a wedding photographer, for my husband and I, there really only was one choice – Bear and Sparrow. Jenna is a family friend; however her beautiful work is really what sold us. Nick and I got married on January 23, 2016. Leading up to our wedding, we knew that winter weather conditions could either make or break our day. Due to this, we needed to plan our special day mostly indoors. Jenna was a huge help with sourcing places to take indoor photos; she understood our vision and she was genuinely excited to be a part of our special day. On the big day, Jenna (and her husband, Justin) were absolutely amazing. We just received our photos and are absolutely blown away by Jenna’s talent. We are so excited to share our wedding photos with all our loved ones for years to come. A BIG thanks to Jenna for her amazing work! 🙂

We were instantly drawn to Bear & Sparrow after seeing the website because of the warm, natural feel of the photographs and the beauty and joy captured in them.  From the moment we met Jenna, we knew she would be perfect for our day.  Jenna was warm, inviting, funny, very easygoing, and professional.  We instantly clicked with her during our engagement photos and when it came to the big day we could not have done it without her and her assistant.  She was amazing at directing posed photos and captured all of the little moments with such grace.  I didn’t cry the entire day of the wedding (which I thought I would) but looking through our pictures I was in the happiest tears.  The pictures are stunning and beautiful, adorable and quirky, and Jenna truly captured who we are and the love we have for each other.  She is an amazing woman who is beautiful on the inside and out and photography is truly her calling.  She has such an immensely natural talent and it shows through her work.  Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have had her capture our day and memories that we will forever treasure.  We cannot wait to work with Jenna again in the future for life’s next milestones!  Thank you so, so much for sharing our special day with us, Jenna!

We couldn’t be happier with Jenna’s work. We were looking for a photographer who was flexible, discrete, and pleasant, and found that all in Jenna. She was professional, but at the same time made us feel at ease. We didn’t even notice her at the ceremony, yet ended up with gorgeous pictures!  We love our wedding photos, and highly recommend Bear & Sparrow.

We booked Jenna for our wedding day and we are so happy we did! We had a small wedding at the mother of the groom’s house, and Jenna’s photos captured the feel of the wedding and all the details of the day. It was such a great feeling to pour over the photos when we got them back and relive the day – not only are the photos a great record of the best day of our lives, but they are beautiful, artistic photos we are proud to showcase on the walls of our home. When we look back at Jenna’s photos, the joy and happiness everyone felt that day really shows through. I know we will treasure Jenna’s photos for years to come! Thank you, Jenna!

We loved working with Jenna! It was so great to have her shoot our wedding, she was really able to capture what we wanted our wedding to portray. She was very flexible and easy to work with, in discussing plans and on the day of. We had asked our guests not to take photos during the ceremony, and so it was all up to Jenna – she captured some great moments and the intimacy of the ceremony that we were trying to create. We were so pleased to receive our photos! There is a warmth and joy in the photos of the ceremony and the reception, and we are so glad we got introduced to Jenna, we will always treasure our photos!

Our experience with Bear & Sparrow was nothing short of awesome.  While most professional family photo shoots are typified by awkward poses and forced smiles, our family actually had fun during the shoot and the finished product shows it.  Jenna is a balance of friendly and professional which feeds into her ability to put her subjects at ease; allowing for relaxed and natural photos.  In addition to our posed photos, Jenna has a real gift for capturing candid shots that allowed our family’s personality to shine through.  We are incredibly happy with the quality and variety of the finished product and we’ve already recommended Jenna to others!

We booked Bear & Sparrow  for our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day. We worked with Jenna and she was so great! Her warm personality and kind heart made our experience with her so much more personable and easy going! Jenna is very talented and has an eye for unique photos that aren’t your “typical” shots. We had many, many compliments on all of our photos and we couldn’t have been any happier with the end results of both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Bear & Sparrow was newer to the market when we booked, but you would have thought they’d been doing this for years and years- Jenna has a natural gift! Thank you again Jenna!

Bear & Sparrow was amazing to work with. From the first time we met Jenna we knew she was just the person we wanted to capture our wedding day and provide us with the photographs we will one day show our grandchildren.  Jenna is a true professional, she worked so well with us to be sure we would be getting just what we wanted.  She is easy going and relaxed and very unassuming.  She was very well organized and ensured that we got all the shots we wanted.  I would , and have highly recommend Bear and Sparrow to anyone.  We are so happy with our pictures, we look like the very best versions of ourselves.  She has an amazing eye to know just how to take a shot so that it will be the most flattering.  I’ve seen some wedding photos that are over edited to to the point that you don’t even recognize the people but her photos are much more natural.  Everyone who has seen our photos agrees that they are beautiful.

Thanks again Jenna!  We love our photos so much!

My husband and I employed Bear & Sparrow (formerly Jenna Bos Creative) in February 2013 to photograph our engagement photos.  We had recently viewed our friends’ wedding photos, which Jenna had shot, and were totally blown away by the quality of her photographs.
Jenna was extremely professional and accommodating throughout the shoot.  She helped us feel at ease and even though we had just met her, it felt like we were hanging out with one of our friends.  Her disposition made the whole experience a lot of fun.
When we received our pictures we were completely floored.  After meeting Jenna and seeing her portfolio, we knew that her work would be good, but the final result exceeded our expectations.  We had to have her shoot our wedding!
Our wedding photos really speak for themselves and it was really the photographer who made the day for us.  Jenna’s eye for capturing the candid moments really made our wedding photos unique and even more special to us.  Her passion for photography is clear in each and every picture she takes.
We highly recommend Bear & Sparrow and look forward to working with them in the future to capture more of life’s milestones.

I absolutely loved working with Jenna- she was relaxed, friendly, and great at giving direction which made us feel so much more comfortable in front of the camera. Before the wedding I had a lot of fears about looking awkward or unflattering in my wedding photos (I can’t be the only bride who’s had sleepless nights about that!) but I was so incredibly happy by how fantastic Jenna made my husband and I look!  When we looked through the photos, we were absolutely blown away by how amazing they were- Jenna shot them so well, but even more important, they captured so perfectly our happiness and the vibe of the event, which will be so nice to remember when we look back at these pictures down the road.  We couldn’t be any more happy about how things turned out and we are so thankful Jenna was our photographer for our big day!
