As expected, she did an amazing job. We could not be happier with the outcome. She is a wonderful person and amazing photographer. We highly recommend her!"

I highly recommend Blue Buttercup Photography for your event! She was wonderful to work with. She kept communication before the ceremony to ensure she had everything in line for the event so that you could truly enjoy it! She made sure to get plenty of photographs and was very warm and made my whole experience wonderful!"

Jess & Harrison

Jess is amazing! Working with her was such a breeze. She was easy to get a hold of and answered any questions I had leading up to the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early to set up, which was much appreciated. She was able to send us our pictures really soon after the wedding, and they turned out beautifully. I am very happy we got to work with her!"

Jennifer & Joseph

Jess was an amazing photographer! Very personable and easygoing. She wasn't pushy or bossy in any way during our whole event. Our families absolutely loved how all the photos came out!! And the turnover wasn't long either for the amount of photos that she had on her plate :p A giant thank you for being phenomenal!! I recommend Blue Buttercup Photography whole heartily."

Everyone else has started seeing them and they are extremely impressed as well. You caught some amazing moments on film and I'm so thrilled with the pictures of me and Dave together! The pictures of me on the rocks were surreal - I love them. Thanks for being a part of our day! You definitely exceeded any expectations we had. Good luck to you in the future!!!”

“It's Heather SAUNDERS! :) (a.k.a. Heather Lewis) I just wanted to say thank you again. Through all the chaos I'm not sure that I ever gave you a proper thank you. I just looked through all the photos again and I am soooo happy. You guys really captured the feel and excitement of the day. I have so many wonderful pictures with my friends, family and husband. I couldn't ask for me. You were the best! I'll continue recommending you to everyone I know.  Best of luck!!! "

We're so glad you had a good time and we are so pleased with the outcome!  Thank you again for everything!!"

Anna & Brian

 “To whom it may concern: Jess Kristen is the photographer that I selected for my special day. I was once looking and wasn't sure because there are a lot of sites to look at on photojournalist website with details to services, prices, etc. I contacted several and they gave me prices but I knew from the start Jess was different. She was so patient, courteous, and I had a gut feeling that she would take care of me on my special day. She gave me so many facts, and answers to silly and all questions that I had. She understood that I was paying for my wedding and worked well with my budget and didn't try to talk me into more than I could afford. She was very professional at all times during the final details with contract all the way from I DO to DINNER.


She was a delight on my wedding day and as well she was very early and prompt. She treated my family with so much respect and kindness. As for her photos.....The pictures were nothing short of a picture perfect story on film. You don't realize how much happens until you see your photos and see that everything was captured. Her artistic eye made my dreams come true. When I looked through the pictures she captured everything in the MOMENT....and for years to come and when I share them with my children. I can be proud of the classic beauty she captured in my special wedding day. I hope that if you aren't sure about who you should choose then my recommendation can put your mind and heart at ease. Jess Kristen will give you nothing short of perfection!”

Christina & Mike

 “I've been meaning to write for weeks to let you know how delighted everybody is with the photos you took at our wedding.  You did a great job of covering the action and the people there while also capturing some wonderful, spontaneous moments.  It is, in fact, true that weddings go by so quickly for the bride and groom, it's great to have good photos that help us recall the day. Thank you SO much again!”

Bronwyn & Randy

 “I got the pictures!!!!!  I was soooooooo excited to see them.  Thank you for doing them so fast. You really got some good pictures & I can't wait to show Anthony. We're sneaking off to Bend for a little weekend I think this will be a good time for us to look at the photos and re-live the fun night we had. I love so many of the photos's hard to say which one is my favorite.  My only disappointment was that I didn't have you stay longer and take more photos of the rest of the evening. I shouldn't have been so worried about the money  and just sucked it up and paid you more to stay longer. It would have been nice to see what else you would have captured. Lesson learned for the next bride. But once again, thank you so much for helping us capture the first moments of our lives as husband & wife.  These photos will be cherished forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With much gratitude!”

Vi & Anthony

 “We just got the CD and saw the pictures online. They are absolutely amazing!!!! Thank you soooo much for shooting our wedding. You were wonderful!! We are extremely happy with them and with you. If you ever need any reference, please feel free to give my phone number to whoever you need to. I forwarded the site with the event key to most of my contacts. I'll forward it to other people as soon as I get their e-mail. Once again,  thank you!”

Claudia & Steve

 “We received the pictures last night. They are wonderful. We could not be happier! We absolutely love them!!  Everyone loves them!  Jeff and I think you did a phenomenal job!! WE are so happy!!”

Katrina & Jeff

 “Dear Jessica, Thank you so much for the DVD Slideshow and pics – they are SPECTACULARt!!  Especially liked the ones we took by the koi pond with the Greco pillars and statutes, and also the ones in the field!  We are very pleased with what you have done...thanks a million!”

Hannah & Tom

 “They are gorgeous!  You really did an excellent job.  I scrolled thru them twice now, and am starting to think about which ones I might like for my larger prints.  You have such a creative eye.  There are some really good ones of my family, which is really the most important. The church looks amazing as do the sculptures and paintings in the photographs!”

Lisa & Rich

 “I just wanted to thank you for the incredible pictures you took. Seriously, you’ve captured every single moment beautifully and there are several pictures that I want to enlarge and frame. The whole wedding was a blur to Joe and I so it is really great to see them on “film”. I am absolutely amazed and ecstatic to see these pictures and I have already recommended you to several friends.  Please feel free to use any of these photos for your portfolio/website, etc. and let me know if I can help you in any way!”
