“Over and over I would rate Lover of Weddings as a 5 star vendor. If I did not have Kaylyn and Jessica Sofranko as the coordinator and photographer for our wedding, I don’t know that the wedding would have been as amazing as it was. They were both intentional and professional throughout the entire process. Kaylyn served as the coordinator for the wedding and made the planning process go so much more smoothly than I ever thought possible. From the moment we decided to use Lover of Weddings as our coordinator/photographer, Kaylyn started to plan. She met with me once a week to see what progress I had made and to go over lists we needed to complete in order to make the wedding happen. She helped me dream up the perfect wedding and also made sure to go over every single possible detail of the day from the moment we woke up until the doors to the venue were locked. She made herself completely available to me as a bride to brainstorm with or to delegate tasks to. Kaylyn was always 50 steps ahead of me in the planning to make sure that everything was covered for the day. On top of that she even made sure to connect with me on a personal level to just see how I was doing throughout the process.
Once the wedding day she had her hands in every detail. She had worked out the schedule with our officiant, the DJ, the venue coordinator, the families, etc. She knew all of our bridal party by name. She made the event run smoothly by making sure everything we had scheduled was on time and that people were in the right places doing the right things. She had so much on her plate and didn’t once show a bit of stress. Kaylyn was professional with every vendor, family member, and friend. She smiled the whole day and kept checking in to make sure I was pleased with every aspect of the wedding and was proactive in making sure things were changed and done well. I knew it would be the best wedding imaginable having her in charge of the day and she did not disappoint.
Working with Jess was one of the greatest parts of my wedding. Jess does the photography while her sister-in-law Kaylyn does the coordination and these two were a saving grace in the wedding planning. They made such a stressful season of life run so much more smoothly and made it an enjoyable experience. Jess made incredible effort to get to know me and my fiance far before our wedding date. She was always very sweet, intentional, and professional. Her getting to know us made the pictures seem so much more personal. It was like she captured our personalities in every picture. She made sure to find out ahead of time exactly what locations in and around our venue we wanted our pictures taken. She asked for a list of pictures I had seen in other weddings or on pinterest that I would hope to have captured for my own wedding. Then on the wedding day, even when I had forgotten what photos were requested, she made sure to capture them. I also have a very large family who can be quite opinionated and wanted photos a certain way, Jess even worked with them and took all their suggestions into consideration. She made people laugh, she made everyone feel beautiful, and the entire time she was just so relaxing to have around as she made sure to capture moments I would have otherwise forgotten. I can’t imagine having anyone else there to capture such a special day. Now that the wedding is over, I’ve been able to see quite a few of the final proofs and they exceeded all expectations (and my expectations were high). They are BEAUTIFUL and were finalized in such a timely manner. No matter the cost, Lover of Weddings is THE WAY to go.”

“Jess & Kay worked my friend Megan’s wedding and I was astounded! Megan was so stressed before the wedding but when Kay showed up she was able to relax. Kay took charge and the wedding went off without a hitch and Megan and Austin enjoyed their day stress free. Jess was efficient and incredibly talented with her camera. I am so impressed, I can’t give enough compliments to the ladies of Lover of Weddings.”

“Wow! Our pictures are so amazing! Thank you so much for making the whole experience one we will remember every time we look at the pictures! Looking over them I see how well you captured our personalities and our friendship. I love seeing how caring and gentle Aaron looks and how happy we both are! The photos have the classic Jess style to them, but are also so us. Aaron was amazed at how comfortable you made us feel from the very start, considering he had just met you that day. What was clear from the very start was that you really wanted to make this session about us, so as to capture the essence of us and our relationship – and you did just that! Thank you, thank you! You did a great job and I am so excited to use these photos for parts of our wedding and in our new home! Aaron and I are so pleased and are so excited to show them to friends and family! ~Juli & Aaron
“Seriously if I could give you a huge kiss on the cheek right now, I would. I can’t thank you enough. We are in awe of how amazing our pictures came out. We love you so so so so so much!!!!! You are seriously ridiculous!!!! Xoxoxo!” Rhiannon & Terry
“She brought so much enthusiasm, which was much appreciated when people are somewhat sleep deprived. If she went above and beyond for us, I couldn’t imagine her not doing the same for others. [We] LOVED our pictures. After the horrid engagement picture experience [with a different photographer], I was so nervous. I was afraid I would be disappointed yet again. We loved our pictures so much, that my husband and I decided to ask her to do another session for us later this year to make up our first engagement picture session. We were blown away by how personable she was the day of the wedding. I’ve been part of weddings with photographers lacking people skills and it’s miserable and awkward. My friends said that she was the best photographer they’d ever worked with. She was friendly, yet professional. She kept things moving along and was confident enough in her work to tell us when something didn’t work. I liked that she took pictures that felt genuine. I love candid shots, so I appreciated that she caught our day as it was. I am laughing in many of my pictures, and although I don’t love the way I look when I laugh, I do love that it’s a genuine representation of how I felt that day. I’m not looking at a bunch of staged pictures–they’re authentic and I love them.” Johanna & Paris
“Kay! You did a wonderful job of keeping everyone calm, cool and collected — even when busy-body MIL (me!) made odd and unusual requests…! May God bless your new endeavor! The Border-Stone clan recommends you highly! <>< ”
Sue, mother of the groom
“Jessica is so great to work with! She was extremely flexible with my schedule and the unusual circumstances of my wedding. She made me feel comfortable in front of the camera, made me laugh, and was such a joy to have around. Jess is very talented and puts her heart and soul into her photography. You are guaranteed to get beautiful shots from her!” Erin & Chris
“I just love Jessica’s work. She is constantly reinvesting in her talent and trade, and getting tons of great experience. Something she is really talented at is editing photos. Jessica is great to work with – relaxed, creative, gives attention to detail, and she gives you direction when you need it. She is an up-and-coming photographer, and I have already recommended her to friends!” Eily & Eddie
“Jess knew exactly what she was doing, her assistants knew how to handle the crowds to get the shots that I want, and the whole team had a fun time with us. There are a variety of packages and she is incredibly flexible to give you the exact experience that you want. I’m a lover of Lover of Weddings!” Megan & Spencer
