"Jen Kay's photography is exactly what we were looking for. We approached Jen with a specific need for a specific type of lifestyle photography that would resonate with our target market. After briefing her on our creative needs, she understood exactly what we were going for. With the asset needs in mind, she put together an impressive array of contact sheets to help us review the style of imagery we ended up going with. From the creative brief process all the way to the delivery of assets, Jen was a pleasure to work with."
"I have worked with Jen Kay several times and always contact her for projects that call for someone with an amazing eye and attention to detail. Along with being a fantastic and professional photographer, she's also wonderfully easy to work with and has great insight and ideas for getting the perfect shot. Jen Kay has infectious positive energy, creating a comfortable, energetic, and creative atmosphere during shoots. I always look forward to working with her and know whether we're shooting fresh fruit or street style fashion, the final pictures will meet all expectations."
“Whenever I need guidance on marketing a new or existing service, the first person that I call is Jen Kay. Her ability to create graphics, navigate graphic programs, all manners of social media are spot on and I know her rapid rate of fire for other ideas is a sure thing. Her manner and personality are a pleasure and a relief to work with, she is straightforward, polished, easy and fun. Recently I worked on a commercial photo shoot to discover her abilities go beyond marketing to the ability to create a vision, organize what’s necessary and to create an entire campaign that went way beyond what the company involved ever could have imaged. She is a “go to” person.”
“We hired Jen for a photoshoot with a very quick turnaround. She was super easy to work with, helped us out a great deal to prepare for the shoot, whether it was with ideas or tips about legal matter. The shoot went really well, she was able to immediately catch the spirit and aim of our brand. Our 6 models loved shooting with her. The atmosphere on the shoot was very easy going. Jen was very responsive to our comments and requests. Everyone that was involved in the shoot had a great time. And last but not least, the pictures turned out great. It was actually a very hard task to select the final shots.”
