J Zoellner Photography | Frohna, MO


Nothing speaks as strongly about J. Zoellner Photography as a few kind words from our clients.

Jen and Mike were amazing. They kept Nick and I very calm the day of even though we thought it was going to be a crazy (getting us to where we needed to be on time and squeeze all the pictures in that we wanted before the reception). But everything worked out great. What I loved about them was they were able to capture all the moments that I wanted. They caught the silly times in and out of church, they got the serious ones and were able to goof up with us and the whole wedding party. There were serious times but also times to cut loose. I will definitely use them for family pictures and future baby Vitales. Thanks again for all the memories and I will charish them for ever and refer everyone I knowthat needs pictures taken to them. Not only were they our photographers but now we have new friends!!!

I met Jen at a bridal show, and I was sold. Her pictures were gorgeous and her energy is nonstop. She is willing to go anywhere do anything for a great picture. At our engagement shoot, she was climbing on and around trees, at my bridal shoot my dad was surprised to see her moving furniture and laying down on the floor to take pictures and somehow at the wedding she got the groom and the groomsmen to take some great pictures…let’s just say that was a small miracle since they all hate pictures. She also has a photo booth that I booked and it was amazing. Everyone had a great time in the photo booth and they take two sets of pictures one for the group that was in there and then one goes in book for the couple. Looking through all the photo booth pictures with my husband after the wedding was so much fun and highly entertaining.

I know that I paid quite a bit for my photographer but there are no second thoughts, she was worth every penny…and more. What was great is you get her all day, for all your shoots, engagement, bridal, and wedding. There are no worries about how many hours your photographer will be there, so there is no rush (which is the last thing you want to feel on your wedding day). And you know that the pictures are going to be of the best quality, and for your wedding pictures can you ask for more?

And the albums, she will make you are of the most amazing quality. I can’t say enough about Jen and the quality of her work.

Jen did a great job and I recommend her to any bride! She is so professional and organized; she will make sure you get every picture you want and a thousand more great ones.

Chad and I want to thank you for doing such an awesome job on our wedding pictures!! You, Mike, and your dad really helped make our special day a blast and kept everyone laughing! Just from the wonderful job you did on the engagement and bridal session pictures, I knew these pictures were also going to be great however they were even better than I ever could have imagined! They all turned out AMAZING!! I don’t know how I will ever be able to pick a favorite! Thank you for making our wedding even more memorable and capturing our special day!! We will always cherish these pictures and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! Also, the photo booth was a blast and was definitely worth it! So many more memories of our guests all having a good time and getting a little crazy! The little ones (and the older ones) were very entertained and even the grandparents got in on the fun! I loved how we were able to take those pictures home with us that night to look over the next day. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! You guy’s are awesome!! – Chad and Kyla!! – Jackson, MO

Mike and Jen were awesome to work with for our wedding pictures and engagement pictures. The pictures all turned out awesome and will be an awesome remembrance of our wedding . They were very professional as well. I would recommend any one looking for a wedding photographer to book them! You will not regret it.

I can’t say enough to express how I feel about Jennifer Zoellner as a wedding photographer. I met her at a bridal expo and immediately felt right at home with her. My wedding and reception was split over two venues a week apart and she was the only photographer that was willing to work with me. My future husband was not really looking forward to having pictures made but after our first session with Jennifer, he was sold. We had so much fun. Jennifer has such an eye for capturing the moment. She is honest and very creative if you will let her have her way. All I can say is trust her because all of our pictures turned out GREAT. She traveled with us to our destination wedding and joined in the fun and became part of the family. Our wedding was located at Dogwood Canyon which is a beautiful nature park. The night of the rehersal, Jennifer suggested I get some cute rain boots..Not sure what she had in mind, I got them and took them to the wedding the next day. We have some great pictures of me in my boots, dress hiked up, jumping across the water creek getting out to a rock. Priceless. Did I say she was creative??? Our reception was a week later and she helped us out by providing a digital wedding picture to our graphic designer that we had create personal wine label to be served at our wedding. She also did a phenominal job at our reception. She knew how to coordinate with our dj and was always at the right spot at the right time to get every shot that we would want. Also helpful is the fact that her husband Mike is a photographer so between the two of them, they don’t miss the shot and many times get it from multiple angles. So…if you’re looking for a wedding photographer I would strongly suggest Jennifer Zoellner.

Jennifer Zoellner and her husband Mike were the greatest photographers I have ever met. They had so many great ideas and some of them may have seemed crazy but they made the best picture. They made the photo sessions so much fun and all we did was laugh and joke around and that made it for a fun and exciting. On the wedding day they captured every moment you could think of and that made it even more special for us. They are not only your photographer but they come out as being amazing friends even after the big day. We can not thank them enough for all they have done and I can not wait to have them do more photo sessions with us in the future!! We love you guys!!

Meredith and Kyle – Jackson, MO

Jennifer was a blessing and did a fabulous job! They traveled 7 hours away, in Southwest Missouri, to photograph our outdoor wedding. We got married next to a creek and she captured the water and the sunset! She was up for trying anything and making the pictures one of a kind! Our reception was in Southeast Missouri and they were there to photograph it also. The quality of service and product was above and beyond. Thanks J Photography for helping us remember our special day!!

Shannon and Will – Frohna, MO

Choosing the photographer for my wedding was almost as difficult as choosing the dress! Jennifer made the cut as soon as we met! She made it easy for us to ENJOY taking photos for our engagement shoot and our wedding day! I was brought to tears when I saw all the proofs of my wedding! I felt as though the entire day was captured on film and I could relive each moment over and over again!

Teresa and John – Jackson, MO

Jen and Mike- Thank you all so much for our pictures and for going above and beyond to help us capture these memories! They look amazing and we are incredibly happy with them. The experience itself, was one to remember. Can’t wait to see what 9/1/2012 will bring.

Kristin and Justin – Cape Girardeau, MO

Jennifer did an amazing job photographing our wedding day! Her slogan is “All About You,” and it’s absolutely true. She took pains to make sure we got the photos we wanted – although many of the shots she suggested actually ended up being our favorites! In addition to talent, she has a real love for photography that just shines through in all of her photos. I am so thrilled to have so many gorgeous pictures to choose from, and I can’t wait to fill up my scrapbook and decorate the walls with her fantastic work. J. Zoellner Photography is an excellent choice for any wedding – I recommend without hesitation. You will NOT be disappointed!

After Jeremy and I started dating, we were at the East Perry County Fair and were looking at the display that Jennifer and Mike had there and the pictures that they had taken. We talked to them for a while and when we left their booth, we both decided they were going to be the one’s that would take our pictures when we decide to get married. It did not take long after that, that we became engaged and the planning began. We met with them and they gave us suggestions. When we began to take our engagement pictures, they kept saying “Don’t forget, it’s all about you!!” We took the pictures in a cave and in a stream. We had so much fun even when Jeremy held me and almost dropped me in the water. That same evening we went back for sunset pictures which turned out lovely. The sunset over the wheat field was just gorgeous. Jeremy was not excited about taking pictures like a lot of guys are but when it was done, he said he had a great time with them. The pictures turned out lovely and was very hard to decide which one to pick. We chose an engagement album and for the wedding had little one made exactly like it to give our guest as favors. The bridal portrait pictures were just beautiful. I had so much fun with them taking the pictures even with my pink shoes and the zebra chair. Jennifer even won an outstanding award with one of these portraits. We met before the wedding to decide on what pictures we wanted them to take at the wedding. They went “FAR BEYOND” of what we had asked. They kept the attention of all the bridal party even the little ones that were in the wedding. They also provided “The Photo Booth” of which we were very glad to see the picture. We had a good time looking at these photos to see how our guest enjoyed themselves taking the pictures. They do such a great job with everything and we would highly recommend them to you as your photographers for your wedding.

“How many newlyweds can say, “Our photographer broke her toe while capturing our special day on camera and she NEVER skipped a beat?” My husband and I can share this story as a testimony of the dedication Jennifer Zoellner pours into her work. Yes, Jennifer broke her toe on our wedding day and kept taking pictures like a champion. She was using a ladder to create dynamic angles for photos in the church and crash the toe was done. Even though this was true that day, I learned days later her toe was broken. I also learned later that her husband taped up her toe and she was on her way to take pictures of the bus, downtown Cape Girardeau, dinner, and dance!! Jennifer was dedicated to not only her photos, but to us. In addition, Jennifer took the time to meet with me over coffee before the wedding to discuss our likes, dislikes, and hopes for the wedding pictures. (This was even after our engagement session.) As I reflect back on our wedding day, I can’t imagine anyone else taking our engagement and wedding pictures. Her pictures don’t just capture memories, they tell our story through colors, sunsets, laughs, and the most important, love! Jennifer quickly became a friend behind a telescope of memories instead of a stranger pointing a camera in your face. We love her work and would recommend her to anyone we meet”

Maria and Brock – Jackson, MO


“A huge thanks to Jennifer Zoellner and Mike Zoellner with J. Zoellner Photography for all the amazing images. Jennifer & Mike were so great to work with. They came early to get the photo booth set-up and worked with me on the design and layout of the photo strips. During our reception, they captured over 500 images of our guests – that equates to about one photo strip every 2 minutes! I love looking through all of the pictures and I am so happy we chose to have a photo booth at our wedding. I would highly recommend J Zoellner Photography to any 2012 brides out there.”

Emily and Patrick – St. Louis, MO


“Jennifer and Mike at J. Zoellner Photography were awesome! And, we even got to make new friends with them…they were like family that day and don’t know what I would have done without them….highly recommend her!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Melissa and Brad – Perryville, MO


“Jen, Thank you for the awesome pictures! You captured so much more than I ever could have imaged. I truly teared up watching the video and had the hardest time deciding which pictures to order! I know not every photographer would have been as patient with my 13 year old son who was not exactly thrilled to have his picture taken, but you hung in there until you had him smiling and all of us laughing!”

Kim – Perryville, MO


“Thanks, Jen, for the GREAT job you are doing for the 2 weddings in our family. Sarah and Jeremy had a “BLAST” when Mike and you took their engagement pictures as well as Rachel and Michael. They all had a hard time picking out which ones they wanted because the pictures all turned out soooo good. They all really enjoying their engagement books that they ordered and will have at their weddings. Jen and Mike are such great people to work with. Can’t wait for them to take the pictures at Rachel and Michael’s wedding in September and Sarah and Jeremy’s wedding in October. Fun times ahead!!! Can’t wait!!”

Karen – Frohna, MO


“Jen- I cannot thank you enough for capturing her expressions to the fullest! I see some of the memories made and it puts a tear in my eye, you only catch these moments in a second with children. Thanks for also making the atmosphere fun. I know my kids feel so much more comfortable by it being more relaxed with breaks; so they don’t get overwhelmed, makes for GREAT pictures!”

Jennifer – Perryville, MO


“Jennifer, you did a Super job for us, we LOVE all the pictures and work you have done for us!! And all the guys in the wedding LOVED you too, Thanks for saving our GREAT DAY for us and Melissa and Brad, we will have these MEMORIES for EVER!!!”

Leslie and John – Sedalia, MO


“I was looking for a photographer for my wedding who understood our personality. Jennifer was perfect for us and caught our wedding day perfectly. She caught very important moments throughout the day and she has such a great personality. She instantly made our family and wedding party feel at ease. We had a huge wedding party made up of 30 people and she was able to get everyone together quickly and created some gorgeous memories. She was the best investment we made that day.”

Hannah and Dustin – Ste. Genevieve, MO


“I want to thank you, the pictures are Great! Most of all I’d like to thank you for all the extras and going out of your way to help on my daughter’s wedding day.”
