"When you work with Jena, you're not just hiring a photographer, you're working with someone who works tirelessly to make sure the product she provides is the highest quality and spot on to your brand. I always appreciate the ideas she brings to the table before the shoot, her suggestions on the day of the shoot and her ability to pivot if we change direction. It's a perfect mix of taking direction, and providing her own style and flare to everything she touches. I look forward to continuing to work with her and I would recommend her in a heartbeat."
-Taylor Rodriguez, Associate Creative Manager
"Jena is a joy to have on your set. She can anticipate your needs and has great problem solving skills, along with the necessary knowledge in regards to photography. She also has a lot of other talents, such as faux finishing/painting for set design. For an art director, that's a dream come true! On top of it all, she works very hard to remain on top of her game outside of the 9-5, which is what driven, hard working, creative people should do. Jena lives and breathes creativity, and I would highly recommend her!"
-Melissa Brower, Associate Creative Director
