We worked with Jen for our engagement photos and micro-wedding in Owego, NY in autumn 2023. Jen was super flexible with how we used the photo package - we chose to use our engagement session to get more wedding photos of the two of us. It was super easy to work with Jen - she was punctual (and arrived early for the ceremony), was prepared with extra cameras, timely with the photo delivery, and got us and our guests out of their shells. We gave her some ideas for fun photos and she did a great job making the shots look great. We love all of the photos she delivered - honestly she went above and beyond! Would definitely recommend Jen if you are having a wedding in update NY!

1000 islands wedding

Jen was a star- friendly, adventurous, and so accommodating. We had a very small backyard wedding in the Thousand Islands and she perfectly captured the spirit of our day- her photography style especially suited the outdoor venue and she did a great job dealing with the gale-force winds coming in off the river! We love our photos and would highly recommend her.

binghamton winter wedding

Booking Jen Pecka Photography for our wedding was one of the easiest and definitely one of the best decisions we made for our January wedding! From the moment we met, Jen made us feel super comfortable and confident in front of her camera. She shot both our engagement session as well as our big day and all of the photos came out absolutely GORGEOUS!!! She captured every single detail of our wedding beautifully. As we looked through our wedding photos for the first time, we were able to relive the best day of our lives. Jen not only captures special moments, but the genuine emotions of those being photographed. All of our photos are STUNNING, I am having a very difficult time choosing favorites to print and hang in our home. Trust Jen Pecka Photography to capture your wedding day, you will not regret it!

We worked with Jen for our engagement and wedding photos. She did an excellent job! Very easy to work with, personable. She had a lot of great ideas and open to our ideas and suggestions. The posed photos are beautiful but the candids from the wedding day of my family are some of my favorite. She captured some amazing moments, love, and laughs in a heartwarming way. I would definitely recommend her.

I would highly recommend Jen Pecka Photography! Jen is thorough and knows exactly what she is doing. She captured every moment of our special day, moments that I missed. Our portraits and photos of the ceremony are gorgeous. The emotion that she captured will allow us to relive our Wedding day forever. Working with Jen was one of our best wedding day decisions!

celebrations - ithaca ny

Everyone should hire Jen as their wedding photographer! We love all the photos we got, we love the amount of photos we got back, and we absolutely loved working with her. She was so nice and able to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera (quite a feat for us and our family!) and this allowed her to capture so many real moments during the day as opposed to everything feeling posed. We truly have no complaints about the process or photos which from talking to friends almost never happens. We asked her so many questions and had some weather related scheduling issues with our engagement shoot and she was always so friendly and accommodating through it all. We particularly liked how committed she is to making sure a wedding she books is a priority, we were assured that there is always a second photographer included on the day as well as back-up photographers available if something were to happen. No other photographer we inquired with had this level of back-up planning and it was nice to not have to worry about that especially with COVID restrictions. We would recommend Jen to anyone looking for a photographer and definitely plan on hiring her for any future photography we do!

Smithville ny wedding

We asked Jenn to cover our wedding- invite shoot- ceremony, candids, all the fun stuff, and she hit it out of the park!! We could not have asked for a more fun & creative photographer to capture those ‘special moments’ from our wedding day. We didn’t want ‘the usual’ or the ‘canned photos’ and we knew instantly, with our wedding invite shoot that Jenn was willing to go the extra mile- to skate down a slippery ice slope or withstand the gale force wind of a full on ‘white out’ snow squall- if necessary- to get the perfect photos. She makes the whole experience super fun and the results are A-MAZ-ING!! Thank you Jenn! We love the memories you have created for us!

Jen was great to work with! She captured so many moments and emotion in her photos from the entire day - from getting ready through the ceremony and reception. Looking through the the photos brought so much of that day back to life. Her style is wonderful - so light and airy, while perfectly capturing all the beautiful colors. We would most definitely recommend her to anyone!

Geneva ny - fingerlakes wedding

Jen did an incredible job with our wedding shoot. I first reached out to Jen after seeing how beautiful my friend’s wedding photos had come out. Jen was able to create a comfortable and fun environment during our wedding, and she was completely flexible in taking mutiple trips down to a lakeside dock to make sure we got the perfect sunset shots. The photographs that Jen took were absolutely gorgeous; she was able to capture our personalities while incorporating beautiful elements of nature into the shots. It was a pleasure working with Jen and we couldn’t be happier with the photographs and the overall experience.

Carli + Mike

1000 Islands wedding - clayton ny

Jen was fantastic! She drove 2 hours, both ways, TWICE, and was so accommodating when we had to postpone our wedding date because of COVID 🙃 she managed to capture all of the most beautiful parts of our day and I would 1000000% recommend her for anyone looking for an event photographer. Thank you so much Jen ❤️😊

Mapleshade farm - delhi NY

Having a photographer was very important to us. While every vendor plays a role in a couple’s special day, a photographer helps capture moments that are cherished for years to come. Having the right photographer that fit our style was also very important; meaning nothing over edited or posed. As soon as we discovered Jen, we knew we did not need to look any farther. Jen’s photos are simple and natural and truly depict the love and beauty between a couple. We had a lot of detail to our wedding, and Jen managed to capture ALL OF IT! Although I would not mind having Jen join in on the dance floor, you would never know she was there…she is that good! Jen has a very calming and down to earth personality which makes it very easy to work with. Special shout out to Kelsey, Jen’s assistant. She too worked so well alongside Jen to capture our special day. We would highly recommend Jen Pecka Photography to capture your wedding day.

Sam + Nich

Albany ny wedding

If I had to say one thing and one thing only, it would be that Jen is incredible. Fortunately, I can say more than that, but that encompasses everything I want to say. Jen photographed the day my husband proposed to me, she photographed our engagement pictures, and she photographed our wedding. Truly, I wish there were more wedding-related events going on that she could photograph more for us because she is AMAZING. She made us feel comfortable from day one. She is punctual, she offers ideas of beautiful places to shoot, she helps “prop you” if you need it, but most of all, she listens to what you want or what you’re vision is, and she goes above and beyond to make it happen. She’s easily reached, quick to respond, and is so fun to talk to. On my wedding day she was one of the people calming me down and telling me it’ll all be okay. I really, really cannot recommend Jen enough. Her work is perfect. Her editing is perfect. She’s perfect. Highly recommend! We LOVE her!

Jen is a 5+ star photographer. She was easy to work, professional and went the extra effort for us (including a lot of boat dock time with her expensive photographer equipment). I am in love with the pictures she took and cannot recommend her enough!

Rachel + Ben

private residence - Greene NY

Jen takes the time to get to know you as a couple and your wedding vision. She will work with you to determine what’s important to you both on your wedding day. The first thing that drew me in when I saw her photos was the light-airy, romantic glow they had! I loved how her wedding packages included a complimentary engagement shoot as well. Her energetic, positive, laid-back vibe gave us the help we needed to feel more comfortable being in front of the camera. She has a great eye for selecting scenic spots to capture your special day! After your wedding day is over, it’s amazing how looking at your photos can bring you right back to that moment! When you hire Jen to capture those specials memories for you-you can feel confident that you will get high-quality, professional photos to treasure for a lifetime.

stonewall estate - delhi ny

Where to start?! – I can’t even come up with the words to describe the kind of photographer that Jen is. She is absolutely amazing and most important – REAL. She made our wedding day fun, from the time I was getting ready with my girls to the end of the night at the reception. She is truly talented and knows every moment to capture during the entire, long beautiful day that was our wedding. She’s approachable, funny, and makes you super comfortable while getting photographed, and doesn’t let anything or anybody get in the way of you getting those must-have shots. Not to mention her assistant, who was super sweet and helpful while gathering people for our group photos after reception. Jen took stunning photos that I can not wait to hang all over my home for the years to come. If you’re thinking about contacting her, DO IT! I spent hours searching for a photographer for my wedding and after looking at Jen’s website and having one conversation with her, I knew I wanted her at our wedding. So grateful. Thanks so much Jen!!! XO

Jen was an absolutely amazing photographer! We originally booked her for August 2020 wedding and when we had to reschedule due to the pandemic she was incredibly accommodating. We loved being able to meet her beforehand for the complimentary engagement shoot and on the day-of she was the perfect mix of assertive enough to get the shots she needed without being too pushy or forcing people into awkward staged shots, and her action shots were incredible! We cannot recommend her highly enough!

starlight lodge - starlight lake pa

Jen is so friendly, inviting, and professional! We had a tiny wedding and she captured so many lovely moments. I’m pretty awkward during phot shoots, so it meant a lot to me that she took the time to help me feel comfortable. She’s a delight! And our pictures are awesome!

Kate + Matthew

windsor, ny wedding

After seeing Jen’s work, I was so excited to find out that she was available for our wedding date. She lived up and beyond any expectations! Jen was very professional, yet fun to work with! She made me and my (now) husband very comfortable and got the most wonderful natural & candid photos for our engagement photos and wedding photos! I would recommend her to anyone!

Kristina + Mike

catskills rustic wedding

Jen was great to work with. She worked really hard to accommodate us during both our engagement and wedding photo sessions (which were both very windy days). She was very professional and responded quickly whenever we had questions or concerns. She was very patient with our 6 and 8 year olds, who kept wanting to look at the pictures she was taking. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for their next event

Nicole + Lonny

windsor, ny wedding

Jen Pecka (and Kristy) did such a wonderful job on our wedding photos this past fall. She was very communicative and easy to work with, which was much appreciated during the pandemic era. Our engagement session was a good intro and helped us to get to know Jen. On our wedding day, Jen went to work and really nailed every little detail of the day. I highly recommend Jen Pecka Photography! You will have fun and have some great photos to relive the moment.

Tenley + Ben

Binghamton ny wedding

Ian & I were referred to Jen. She wowed us with her amazing portfolio…then she agreed to shoot on-site with us for our ‘enchanted library’ dream location engagement photos. INCREDIBLE. We’re in love and he’s handsome, so I never worried how the pics would develop.

Then, our wedding was postponed (and we’ve decided to go-virtual) due to Covid. Jen was understanding and totally flexible. In the meantime, she shot my professional photos (I’m a local lawyer for entrepreneurs & small businesses.) Somehow, despite my anxiety, Jen spotlighted me looking relaxed and natural, laughing & approachable. She even commented at one point that I looked like I was posed for an album cover – prompting gales of laughter. — I don’t love being spotlighted (despite the job requirement), so Jen’s talents are remarkable to me.

In fact, both Ian and I have public-facing jobs and we are picky about photos that go up. We can’t wait for our wedding-day. A virtual wedding wasn’t what we planned, but we’ll have Jen there – Jen’s talents are in her nature – she can bring anyone to easy and capture moments in pictures, gifting memories of beautiful, often hidden micro-expressions. Jen’s a remarkably talented photographer & a caring human.

Theresa + Ian

owego ny wedding

Jen was so professional, responsive, flexible, and easy to work with. You can tell that she really loves what she does. Her style appealed to me mostly because it was very natural but still elegant at the same time. I feel like she really captured the vibe I was going for at my wedding which was a very relaxed, outdoorsy, family event, that was so full of love. I actually hate getting my photo taken, but she made it a fun experience and worked with my awkwardness (and a super busy toddler) to capture some truly beautiful moments. I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially those with outdoor weddings!

Jenelle + Steven

Gilbertsville farmhouse

Jen was absolutely amazing on our wedding day! She rallied a group of rowdy groomsmen and sassy bridesmaids in the most amazing way possible. We got so lucky with a beautiful day in October and Jen did an awesome job working with the sun (I’m sure it was not easy). Our pictures came out incredible and I could not be happier! She made us feel super comfortable and I just can’t get over how stunning our pics are. Thank you so much Jen for capturing our special day.

windham mountain - catskills wedding

Jen is AMAZING! She did both our engagement photos and wedding photos and they’re amazing! We had so many great engagement photos and we already have a handful of great wedding photos. I cannot wait to see the rest! She and her assistant Brittany captured our wedding on 9/21/19 in Windham, NY and they went above and beyond to get the perfect shots including kicking down a tree and taking a chair lift and facing some fears! She’s a rock star photographer and she worked so well with our other vendors – if you need a photographer in the area use Jen!

Rachel + Cody

Ithaca wedding - fingerlakes

Jen did both our engagement and wedding photos last year and they were incredible!! Jen was easy to work with and made us feel very at ease while taking pictures. From hiking up Buttermilk Falls for our engagement photos to freezing in the Cornell Botanical Gardens for our wedding photos, Jen (and Brittni) were up for it all! She has a great eye for landscape backdrops, lighting and editing that blew us away when we saw final photos. We would highly recommend Jen for your next special event!

Melissa + Pete

Riverdale wedding venue - endicott ny

My husband and I booked Jen for our wedding. She was super easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to any questions we had. You can tell from her contract that she’s super detailed which is exactly what you want for such a huge day. She was so easy to work with and we were so happy with our photos! If we had to do it all over again we would definitely use Jen! If that doesn’t convince you, just look at her portfolio! Her pictures are stunning!

Megan + Jon

the doubletree - binghamton ny

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!

Maria + Sam

gilbertsville farmhouse

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

Esther + Jake

catskills rustic wedding

Jen Pecka is a complete blessing! She photographed my 1/7/17 wedding, as well as my engagement shoot over the summer. My husband and I hired Jen based not only on her incredible talent, but also because of how she made us feel. When looking for a photographer, I was searching for someone I could trust, who had unique ideas, was creative, and who I know would make me feel as comfortable as possible on my wedding day. Jen did EXACTLY that. She was focused, organized, supportive, and gentle. Jen worked wonderfully with the church staff, my videographer and DJ too, which was amazing and very important to me. During the hiring process, my husband and I told Jen we did not have any preference as where the engagement or wedding picture locations were, and to use her creative genius. She did not fail us! Every single picture is just beautiful. Through getting to know her, Jen truly began to know my husband and I as a couple, and was able to capture the most genuine, sincere photos possible, that she knew embodied who we are together. She is just fantastic. Jen also helped us set up an entire timeline for the day of out wedding, which helped tremendously, since I really didn’t know exavtly how everything could/should go. It is also worth mentioning that Jen is great to work with during the entire planning process, as she is fast to respond to emails, as well as very flexible to meet or call with any questions or ideas. I would highly recommend Jen for any wedding or important event, as I know we will be hiring her for all other photography needs in the future!

traditions at the glen - binghamton ny

I was very nervous about getting photos done. You think about your wedding day and experience and you want everything to be perfect and it is really tough when you don’t have the perfect look or body type. When I first met Jen, she blew me away with her charisma and fun character. She is so sweet and will do anything you ask of her. We started with her for our engagement photos and really blew us away with making us feel comfortable in our own skin. Then, her and Britney did our wedding photos. Their professionalism with working with the other vendors and not freaking out on our families for taking photos over her shoulder was no short of stellar. They were able to capture every memorable moment from the beginning of our love story until the end. Thank you for such a wonderful experience and I would recommend Jen and Britney highly if you want your wedding photos to be perfect!

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

Gilbertsville Farmhouse

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!!

Annie + Bill

Binghamton ny wedding

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!

Lynsay + Will

Binghamton ny engagement

I reached out to Jen to take some engagement photos of my fiancé and I. I know I wanted to do a beach themed session because we are getting married on the beach in Jamaica, but I had no idea where to take these photos because we are still fairly new to the Binghamton area. Once I gave her that information, she automatically suggested locations for us. We took amazing photos on the beach at Chenango Valley State Park. I thought we were just going to take a few snap shots on the beach and call it a day because we only had a 30 minute session but Jen went above and beyond to make sure to get more snap shots of us in different locations in the park. I’m in love with all of the photos that we’ve taken.

Ida + Nicholas

ithaca ny wedding

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!

Holly + Dan

syracuse ny wedding

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!
