Absolutely Flawless, and so grateful we met!
We were just married on New Years Eve in Silverado Canyon, CA, at a beautiful venue called “Rancho Las Lomas”. We chose Jodi because of her stunning reputation and the amazing things she does with natural light. During our engagement shoot, we simply had a blast, she had so many fun poses and made us feel very natural and special.
She not only is just an amazing person but her work is top tier. It did in fact rain on our wedding day, and Jodi was right there with a huge smile on her face settling the emotions that could have put a damper on the day. We got amazing shots despite the weather and I could not be more happy with the final results. She made our special day look amazing, and something we can now look back on as an absolutely flawless event. Thank you Jodi for going above and beyond, overcoming any obstacles, blowing us away with your photography, and creating a new relationship. Thank you.
All the Best,
– Ryan A (married on December 31, 2016 at Calamigos Ranch)
Wow! 6 stars if they went that high. We just got our photos yesterday from our wedding. Jodi hit the ball out of the park. HUNDREDS of shots from the wedding, the reception and the beach/nature in-between (with the wedding party.) Jodi made sure to capture all of the “stock” shots that you need at a wedding, but then she also went above and beyond to capture some truly cool (artsy) shots. She was patient, but also “pushed” just the right amount to keep our energy up and keep us in the moment. Jodi even stayed far longer than we paid her for, due to the fact that she wanted to make sure that she did a bang-up job. My (new) wife (Nicole) and I don’t write reviews online very often, but I am happy to endorse Jodi B Photography. She delivered the photos on beautifully packaged DVD with a lovely, hand-written thank you card. Of the million decisions (both large and small) that people make when they plan a wedding, this was one of our best! Thank you so much Jodi – you rock!

Best Vendor We Hired!!!
Pre-wedding: although Jodi is a very busy person, she made my husband and I feel as if we were a priority. If you have never had photos taken before, like me, she guilds you through all your poses. We were very pleased with our engagement photos. Wedding day: we were very excited for our photo session on our wedding day. Unfortunately my hair and makeup took an extra 2 hours that put everything off schedule. Jodi went above and beyond and helped set up our venue and had everything ready so when I arrived late, she was completely ready for me. She is very efficient at making the most of the photo time with you so you can get TONS of different shots. Even though I had 1/2 the time for photos because of my other vendor, jodi made it seem like I lost no time at all. By far the best purchase my husband and I made for that day. Well besides the marriage license 🙂 *** one note the 2nd photographer was not there due to illness but Jodi made sure she got all the photos we were scared one photographer could not get*** After wedding- we just received our photos this week and are amazed they look as great as they do. They look like high-end magazine photos out of bride magazines. Over-all my husband and I could not be more pleased with the quality of our photos and we are glad we put photography as our first priority and went with Jodi B Photography.

Jodi is Awesome!
My wife and I were very happy to have Jodi as our photographer. She is very professional and personable, and did a great job with our photos. At the wedding, we had her set up a ‘photo booth’ with props – and everyone had a GREAT time! She’s very committed to getting a good shot, and does a great job: some light rock climbing with the camera, balancing on the bow of a sailboat, and the cold onshore wind at the beach – she encouraged us both through all of it (especially the beach shoot, that water was cold!). We cannot recommend her enough.

Jodi is Amazing! Totally Made Our Wedding Experience!
We feel so blessed to have had Jodi as our wedding photographer. I love photography and wanted amazing photos for our wedding. We live in AZ had been looking online for photographers in the San Diego area and had a few narrowed down when my cousin told me about Jodi…. and I am SO glad she did!!! I emailed Jodi and talked to her about what we wanted done. She sounded like a lot of fun and very reasonably priced and she was available when we were traveling to San Diego so we booked her for our wedding photos without meeting her first. I didn’t realize how much your wedding photographer can make or break your special day and we are SOOOO happy that Jodi was our photographer! She is so fun & personable. Her photos are amazing!!!! And she makes you feel like a million bucks!!! I SO appreciate her! She was willing to chauffeur us around and spend all afternoon with us making sure we got the photos we wanted and had traveled to San Diego for. She is so creative… making my groom’s boutineer out of plants at our hotel 🙂 and she has such a wonderful eye for photography and knows what looks good. She also emailed me photos that I needed for our reception and sent a beautifully packaged CD of all of our photos to us very quickly! She did a wonderful job on editing our photos and any additional questions I have had for her she has got back to me and helped me right away. Once again we feel SO incredibly blessed to have had such a wonderful wedding photo experience with Jodi whom we hadn’t ever met or spoken with (only emailed) until the day of our wedding photos

Wow! Wow! Wow!
When I did much much research on finding the “perfect” photographer for my wedding, I found it! The phots that I’d seen from Jodi B. Photography left my now husband and I floored! This girl superceeds world famed photographers and most certainly in our opinion should be working with top modeling agencies and the Vera Wangs. When we actually hired to her to photograph our wedding it was almost as if she was a part of our entire family! She made us all so comfortable, relaxed and even made those smile who hadn’t in years! My husband and I had the time of lives and precious moments were captured throughout the entire ten hours that Jodi was with us. We appreciate the hard work she put into it standing, running and knealing all day. I must mention, she did MANY of these photos on SAND as our wedding was held on a beautiful beach summer of 2011. When we received the finished product we were just thrilled!! We are reminded daily when we look at the phots throughout our home of how lucky we were to have such a stellar photographer in Jodi and Jodi B. Photography! Thank you so much!!

Perfect Closure to a Perfect Day!
We had so much fun working with Jodi, from the engagement shoot to the wedding day. She’ll make you laugh and feel comfortable with the camera, even if you’re not initially. She’s a lot of fun!

Excellent and Professional
Jodi and her staff were very professional. They were on time and never stressed me out once. We have only seen a couple of them, but they a so beautiful so far. I have already scheduled a family session for Christmas pictures.
– Meghan D (bride)
Jodi is amazing. My husband does not like taking pictures. Jodi made both of us very comfortable while we had our engagement photos as well as our wedding pictures taken. She got our pictures back to us in a timely manner. She just made everyone laugh which makes taking pictures so much more fun.
– Melissa P (Bride)
As a bride, I wanted someone with not only the artistic eye and skill needed to create beautiful photos for the years to come…I also wanted a photographer with the ability to direct the situation and make sure all scenes and details were covered. Jodi did just that! Afterall, a bride has too many other things to worry about and having one less stress is worth millions! Thanks, Jodi for the wonderful photos!!

Best Wedding Photography
I found Jodi at a friends wedding and saw her photos posted on Facebook. I knew right away that I loved her style and was not disappointed with her service after I booked her for my engagement an wedding. Jodi more than met my expectations throughout the entire process from her great personality during the shoot, the many pictures from my special day I get to keep forever, to the customer service side and her prompt responses. I now have great photos to remember my special day. I would highly recommend her to anyone who knows the value of great pictures!!!
– Heather J (bride)
Jodi was the photographer for my cousin’s engagement pics and wedding. Jodi was great to work with and affordable. She suggested a wonderful location for the engagment pics which provide my cousin and her man the opportunity to have some serious “lovey-dovey” pics and some fun ones too. I helped to coordinate the wedding and was able to watch as Jodi captured so many teriffic and memorable moments. She was completely professional and non-invasive. Jodi also used the wedding location to create some special bride and groom shots. All in all she was the right woman for this wedding and I’d work with her again in a minute!!

Great Personality! Beautiful Pictures!
Jodi is the photographer you want for your wedding! She knew how to capture the special little details and also the big momments. Jodi did a great job including everyone in all the pictures. The bride and groom pictures turned out beautiful and very romantic. I wish I knew Jodi when I got married! She has a great personality that will help put the bride at ease on her special day. If there will be kids in the wedding, Jodi is the one for you. My two boys loved her and she got them to smile when others might not have. Your photos are the one thing that will always remind you of your special day and Jodi knows this.

Super Friendly, Beautiful Pictures!
Jodi was awesome – she made us comfortable, got great shots, and did everything as promised – totally recommend when you want those romantic, forever shots for your wedding!

From the Page of a Magazine…
Everyone who has seen our wedding pictures swears that we were really modeling for a magazine ad. Jodi covered every angle, moment, and idea with ease. She was ready for anything and didn’t hesitate to jump in and get the really good shots that tell the whole story. I would highly recommend the Talented Miss Jodi for any event; you won’t be disappointed.

September 2010 Wedding
Jodi was the photographer for my wedding last September and I cannot rave enough about how AMAZING she was! I am also a photographer, so it was hard to find someone I could trust to photograph our big day. I also live in Colorado and she was so easy to work with and plan from another state! On our wedding day, she made everyone feel very comfortable, made us laugh, had fantastic poses and was very professional. She blended in to our ceremony and did not disturb with obnoxious flashes. She was early and dressed professionally, but was still able to move around and do her job. I cannot say enough about how fabulous she was on that day and the photos turned out perfect! I am so glad that I stumbled upon Jodi’s site and I would recommend her to everyone out there because she really adapts to your personalities!
– Calli R (bride & photographer)
Jodi was truly amazing to work with and takes gorgeous pictures! She made both of us feel very comfortable and had a great sense of humor that made us laugh, making for great pictures! I would definitely recommend her to any prospective couples for both engagement and wedding pictures.

One of the Most Talented Wedding Photographers
Jodi Betancourt is off the charts amazing. I’m a wedding planner and I first worked with Jodi at a clients destination wedding. Jodi had never met the couple before the wedding day since they lived across the country, but she immediately made the couple and the entire bridal party feel at ease. She was firm but friendly in giving directions to the wedding party so that time wasn’t wasted, but she still accommodated each request that came from the bride and groom, making the photos tailored to their personality, preferences, and desires. Jodi gives and takes direction well, and her photos are a clear display of her undeniable talent. Along with all the timeless shots, Jodi uses her editorial eye to try new poses and angles, resulting in unique images so gorgeous, they’ll take your breath away. As the designer and coordinator of the wedding, it’s important to me that every single aspect of the wedding be captured in detail. Jodi doesn’t miss a thing, no matter how much or how little time she has. Every single thing, from the table accents & flower to the appetizer & and guests was captured in a beautiful way. Her photos aren’t stiff or boring, but ooze with zest, life, and the personality of the couple. I only recommend the best to my clients, and to them I highly recommend Jodi B Photography.
