“What every bride wants is to relive her wedding day. When I opened my wedding gallery from Rita and Jen, I instantly was taken back to that day. Rita and Jen capture moments better than anyone I have ever seen – in every photo I could actually feel the joy and love, the fun and excitement, and really felt that every photo spoke of that day and everything it meant to my husband and I. I got to see pictures of things that truly mattered to me – of the big moments, the looks in spare moments, the details that so much thought went into. I got to experience what my friends and family saw and experienced, and how they felt. They captured everything I could have hoped for and more. I don’t want to be cliche, but they could not have given me a better memory of that day. I have never seen something so uniquely fit my husband and I.
Not to mention, they are awesome people. Seriously, after my first conversation on the phone I wanted to just call them up to hang out. They are so genuine, warm, and fun – and that matters on a crazy day like your wedding day. They are not only talented but so thoughtful and caring, I honestly really enjoyed them being there and hanging out with our wedding party, everyone loved them. They are so easy to work with, and with planning a wedding being so complicated, it is refreshing to work with genuine and transparent people.
My family and I are currently trying to think of anything we can have them come photograph again- we loved them so much!”
“Hire Heirloom Photo Company for your next Wedding, event or family photo shoot!!! We selected Heirloom for our wedding based on their ability to capture the impromptu moments of friends and family. Yes, the family portraits are important (and Heirloom proved to be a master at "herding the cats" and getting our families organized for some great shots), but we really wanted to capture everyone's true personalities and the attendees enjoying themselves. Rita and Jen were delights to work with! As you can see from the photos I've attached to this review, they'll get into any position to ensure they're capturing beautiful photos. I have NEVER had a professional photo session, and was anxious about how awkward I would feel in front of the camera. Rita & Jen made the setting so incredibly casual and relaxed, that most of the time they blended into the background...allowing them to capture great candid moments. We received 100 "first look photos" within 48 hours of our wedding and then the complete package in a timely manner. We have been completely BLOWN AWAY with the beautiful pictures, candid moments and their ability to totally capture everyone's personality! I can't wait to have an excuse to work with Jen and Rita again.”
“Oh my goodness- this pair was AMAZING! My husband is not a lover of pictures, yet they were able to make him feel comfortable and at ease the entire time! My wedding day was beautiful, and Rita and Jen exponentially enhanced it. They could read my every need and stepped in to make sure everything we wanted was done, and then some! I would recommend Heirloom to EVERYONE getting married. I laughed with these ladies, cried with these ladies and celebrated with them! I will be using Heirloom for every single family photo shoot in the future. Thank you ladies for all the memories you gave us :) <3”
“Heirloom Photo Company’s talent is apparent from just a quick glance at their portfolio. What you can’t see in a photograph is the heart that goes into their work and how absolutely wonderful the people behind the camera are. From our first meeting, to engagement photos, to our wedding day I have always been confident and excited about Heirloom’s role in our Best Day Ever. Rita and Jen are a dream team. They work efficiently and make ordinary moments memorable by capturing emotion and harnessing natural light. It is certainly more than the click of a camera – a lot of work goes into the details of photos; emotions are high, weather is unpredictable, and surprises pop up. These two not only take beautiful pictures, but they make you feel at ease and comfortable. And they make it look effortless. They are more than photographers too. After a mild dress crisis arose, Rita literally saved the day and sewed my wedding dress! She was calm and cool about the whole thing. Our first look was fun and family portraits were a breeze. The best part is that it was easy – like hanging with your closest friends who also happen to be kick ass photographers. We will cherish our photos forever and can’t wait to have our Heirloom friendtographers capture more of our adventures in life.”
"Rita and Jen are the best photographers and people in the world. Everything from the engagement photos, to communication leading up to the event, to the wedding day itself, was so easy and fun because Rita and Jen are at the top of their game. On the day of, our families were not the most cooperative or easy to corral, but Rita took charge and made sure things ran smoothly. Our photos are incredible and we still can’t believe they’re ours. We feel so lucky to have found Heirloom and are so happy we made this investment- we will truly cherish these photos forever and couldn’t recommend Heirloom highly enough."
"I am beyond pleased with the work of Heirloom Photo Company. I knew they did phenomenal work based on their portfolio alone, and even still I was blown away with how they captured our day. They are organized, attentive, personal and are good at knowing exactly what it is you want! They have all the honorable qualities of trustworthy businesswomen and on top of that, they're fun! With them, you can forget the camera is there and truly relax. If you're budget is tight and you're unsure about spending money on your photographer, let me try and convince you that it's well worth it. Never will you regret having the honest, breathtaking, candid photos to reflect on for years to come. That's the kind of work Heirloom does!"
"We recently had our wedding and we worked with Heirloom Photo Company. We had an amazing experience with Rita and Heirloom overall. We had a large wedding with 450 guests.
Rita took the time to not only get all the detailed shots which we love and turned out great but she also took the time to work with our entire wedding party and get a bunch of really good shots. We wanted someone who was able to take pictures while we were getting ready and all the way until the end of the night and Rita did this without hesitation working a very long day and keeping a great attitude throughout the entire day. Rita also takes some of the most amazing photographs we have ever seen.
Brooke’s number one thing about the wedding she was worried about was photographs to help preserve the memory of the day and Rita went above and beyond. Her photographs are amazing and we are so excited to keep seeing more as she is finishing the editing process. We couldn’t have been happier with our engagement and wedding photos working with Heirloom. We can’t thank Rita enough and would highly recommend her to anyone we know who is looking for a great photographer!"
“I cannot say enough positive things about Heirloom Photo Company! Jen is amazing. She did our engagement photos in February, and we loved her so much to fly her to Wisconsin to capture our day! All of our friends and family say how nice of a job she did in capturing our day. I highly recommend working with Jen; you will not be disappointed!”
“I don’t even know where to begin with Rita & Jen… Do I begin with how personable they both are, that they can hang out on a trolley with a rowdy wedding crew and laugh right there with us all while truly capturing the moment? Or should I start with how efficient they are – the fact that I had a sneak peek and wedding album within 48 hours of getting married that I was able to share with so many family and friends is unheard of!! Not only that, but they kept our wedding party in line (which proved to be difficult at times- haha) and before the wedding Rita would respond to all of my emails and texts within hours! Or maybe how incredibly talented and artistic they both are? I cannot count the number of times I was told “that photo belongs in a magazine,” or “that photo is so raw it brought me to tears,” or Justin saying that “their attention to detail is out of this world, it made me want to run down to the art supply store and start painting again!!” Coming from someone with a very calm demeanor, I was unable to sleep the night before our wedding worrying about things that were out of my control, when Rita and Jen arrived that day I trusted them 100% which is so incredibly rare in the wedding industry and it really helped put me at ease. They genuinely wanted to know if there was anything they could do to help throughout the entire day and night!! So, if you are looking for personable, efficient, artistic, talented, trustworthy, genuine photographers – Rita and Jen have it all!! I’m so (hashtag) blessed that I found them!!” With Love,
-Kaitlin & Justin
“Jen was AMAZING. She is so easy to get along with and has such a relaxed vibe. She truly wants to be sure that the bride and groom get EXACTLY what they want out of their photographer. Prior to the wedding, we sat down to go over a few basics and then touched base as we got closer to the ceremony. The photos are absolutely spectacular and all my bridesmaids, groomsmen and family fell in love with Jen – she is so sweet and did a great job of managing the day. I would recommend Jen to anyone and am so happy that I was able to find her!”
“WOW…. is all I have to say. Rita and Jen made Scott and I’s wedding day absolutely flawless! The day started out a bit rough as our vendor for our reception and ceremony site were testing my patience a bit when they had the wrong color napkins placed on all tables, not enough chairs set out and not setup correct for ceremony, venue was dirty, staff not even there until after noon, etc… you get the picture… enough with the negative.
Lets just say with Rita and Jen being there at 1:30pm to start documenting the wedding. I had COMPLETELY forgot about all that within about five minutes of them being around. They are ENERGETIC, give great DIRECTION, CREATIVE, SMART, CARING (always made sure I had what I needed), FUN, well most of all FUN and AMAZING at what they do. As awkward as my groom and his friends were, they aren’t huge fans of taking pictures or candid shots, as I feel most men are but Rita and Jen got great shots of them as well! I honestly forgot that I hired them to take pictures most of the time because we were doing it and having an absolute blast. I could go on, and on, and on but honestly all you have to do is look at our wedding pictures or any of the others on their website and you will be blown away.
I plan on using them both for any sort of professional, or heck any unprofessional pictures I need in the future to document my life. We highly recommend them to others FOR SURE!”

“First and foremost, Rita is not only mega talented, artistic, and creative, but she is an incredible person to boot!! When we were first researching wedding photographers, I met with Rita and within about 10 minutes of meeting her she had me laughing and I felt completely at ease and comfortable, like we had been friends for years. I left that meeting knowing she was going to be our wedding photographer. She shot our engagement pictures and by the time our wedding came around, I felt like I had gained a great friend. Like most brides, I was overwhelmed with almost every emotion imaginable on our wedding day, but having Rita there really helped me because I trusted her so much. She probably didn’t even realize she was doing that for me, but she was! When we got our wedding photographs back, my husband Ryan and I sat down to look through them together. As we looked through them I was both crying and laughing because she captured so many great moments, moments that might have been fleeting but she captured them through her lens and now we have them forever! That has to be one of the surest signs of an amazing photographer, when you can experience so many emotions while looking at their photos! We were both blown away, our photos are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! What a gift it is to be able to do this for people, to capture these moments on one of the biggest days of your life. Also, as her second shooter, Rita brought Emily Lodigensky who is a rock star in her own right! We were SO fortunate to have two AMAZING photographers shoot our wedding day! Every single person who saw our sneak peak photos has been blown away by how gorgeous they are! I have heard from so many people asking if I have our photographs back because they can’t wait to see them! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further. Rita will go above and beyond for you! We will cherish these pictures forever and we are so grateful to her for everything she did for us! THANK YOU so much Rita!!”
We had an amazing experience with Jen as our wedding photographer; she is extremely talented, creative, and fun. She was incredibly easy to work with through the entire process, and gave us confidence that everything would go smoothly the day of the wedding. Jen was also particularly willing to cater to our specific desires. For example, she captured the entire wedding weekend for us from our family BBQ to the group mountain hike, and she was able to take beautiful outdoor wedding party photos despite less than perfect weather day-of. All of our guests had an excellent experience interacting with Jen, they thought she was fun and high-energy and made the photography a completely natural part of the ceremony and reception. The photos were everything we could have hoped for and more. Jen was thorough in sorting through the photos and providing high quality final images, and she also gave us a deck of previews shortly after the wedding so we had something to share while we waited for the rest. All in all, we would highly recommend Jen for anyone looking for a creative and talented wedding photographer.

“If you are looking for a photographer that makes you feel comfortable, is incredibly professional, and takes gorgeous photos, then Rita Clark is the one for you! From our first meeting I knew that Rita was a good fit for our wedding. She is so much fun! I am not one to enjoy a lens in my face and she made that part of the process painless. Most importantly, the photos! All of my guests say our pictures should be in bridal magazines! She got incredible shots of our guests having fun – laughing, crying, dancing – she and her buisness partner, Jen Britt, captured it ALL! She is quick to respond to emails and text messages, and we got our pictures within three weeks of our wedding! Thank you, Rita!!”
“Every single picture turned out natural & beautiful. I can’t put into words just how grateful we are for Rita & Jen. They made a huge contribution towards making our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you Rita & Jen! Xo!”
“After our initial meeting with Rita, we knew that we had found the person we wanted to capture our special day. She was light hearted and witty, professional and organized, but most of all, extremely passionate about her work, which is evident in the quality of the pictures she creates. We were lucky enough to have both Rita and Jen to document our wedding. They have the ability to put you completely at ease and have a way of making you feel like you’ve known them forever. They were our wedding heroes! I can say that the wedding day went so much smoother just by having them there. They were efficient in getting photos taken without ever making us feel rushed. When we first met we hired a photographer, but we ended up with lifelong friends. Ashley and I are overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for all of the hard work, love and pure positive intention that went into getting the meaningful “magical” shots that we get to keep for the rest of our lives. The immense amount of love and laughter that was present at our wedding can now be documented forever because of these two incredible photographers. The amount of compliments that we received from friends and family regarding our photographers and our pictures has been overwhelming. Rita and Jen, without a doubt, will continue to be our photographers as we continue to build a family. They are simply the best. Period.”
“Rita & Jen,
DUDES! Where do we begin?!
Our day was perfect and when we look the photographs that you both took we are reminded of that. We are so incredibly THANKFUL that you captured our elopement so that we can share our story with our family and friends.
The photos you captured in our home and at our elopement are beautifully simple and organic.
Seeing our photos for the first time made us both cry because of the way you captured the emotion and intimacy. It was so perfect.
We would not be reminded of the beautiful details if it was not for these elopements photographs!
Thank you so, so much!”
– Sadie & Cory
“I contacted Rita in December 2014 because we needed a photographer for our wedding. She drove an hour the day before Christmas Eve to meet my fiancée and me, since that is when we were in town. She was wonderful, cheery, and super nice. She answered all of our questions and we facetimed with Jen who would be photographing our wedding. Rita was great throughout the planning process, she answered all of my questions quickly and the details form we filled out before the wedding was perfect. RITA IS AWESOME!!!! On our wedding day, Jen showed up early and was FANTASTIC!!! WE LOVE JEN!!!! She is super, super awesome! She took pictures of the flowers, the rings, shoes, the venue. I love her detail oriented shots, they are amazing. Then she took pictures of the ceremony, then we took family pictures (I have a huge family and she was a pro at getting us through that). Then she took pictures at dinner and then of bowling instead of dancing after dinner. JEN IS AMAZING!!!! I LOVE THE PICTURES! She took great shots and captured so many fun and wonderful events of the day. Less than 48 hours after the wedding Jen and Rita had our Sneak Peek posted and the pictures were more than I had hoped for. They were super amazing. Then that night Rita was still posting pictures that they liked to my Facebook. THE PHOTOS ARE OUTSTANDING!!!! I can’t wait to send them to friends and family and hang them all over the house. IF YOU NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER, CONTACT RITA AND JEN!!!! THEY ROCK!!! They are absolutely the best. I am not very photogenic and I look amazing (as does my family, friends and groom) in every picture. They are pros and they will do an amazing job!!!! Jen and Rita, Thank you both so much for capturing our day and making it look amazing!”
“As soon as Rita and Jen arrived early in the morning as my bridesmaids and I were getting ready for the big day, I felt instantly more calm and collected. Their positive presence allowed me to relax and forget about any worries that I might have had. Their lightheartedness and playful spirits made my husband, bridal party and I feel comfortable to really show our true personalities and emotions for Rita and Jen to capture. Not to mention, our photos are absolutely incredible!! My husband and I feel that choosing Rita & Jen as our photographers was our best decision, and we are so happy we have our wedding day memories beautifully captured, forever. I give my highest recommendation to Heirloom Photo Company!” Brooke
“Oh my goodness… I don’t even know where to begin. Rita and Jen are simply amazing. The best. We initially found Rita and booked her to be our engagement and wedding photographer. Our engagement photos were so beautiful and will be something we cherish forever. Not only is her work amazing, but she is one of the kindest and easy to work with photographers I’ve ever used. I didn’t see her get frustrated or short once during our session, which would have been easy to do with us and our 3 kids, (who are 3, 4, and 5). They had more than a few moments where they were running around like little hooligans and Rita was still somehow able to capture some amazingly sweet photos with such ease. We have had so many compliments on the photos from so many different people! Two weeks before our original wedding date, I called Rita in a panic on a weeknight needing to reschedule our wedding at the last minute, which I realize does not happen often, or ever! She immediately got to work figuring something out and gave us a couple of options for different dates. Jen stepped in for our wedding because Rita was already booked for that date. And Rita was just so amazing and helpful through all of it! Now for the wedding, Jen was equally as wonderful as Rita. She arrived a little early and immediately got to work, I don’t think I actually saw her stop even for a moment the whole evening. She was very friendly and easy to work with and I immediately felt comfortable around her. She also had our blog post done THE MORNING AFTER THE WEDDING. I woke up to a sweet text from her with a link to some of our photos that morning! Unbelievable! And the photos are more than I could have ever hoped for. She was able to capture so many sweet moments in a record amount of time. I cannot wait to see the rest! I have written a short novel here… So I’m going to stop but know that I could go on and on and on about how wonderful they both are! I almost don’t even want to leave such a great review because I want to keep this secret to myself as we are planning to use them for all of our future photography needs, but that would be unfair. So if you are on this page looking for a photographer, stop looking. You’ve found the perfect ladies for the job!
"THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! That is the only way I can start a review for Heirloom Photo Company. My husband and I had the pleasure of having Rita and Josh shoot our wedding and from the moment Rita showed up in my bridal prep room (Early!!!) I immediately felt more relaxed. She could tell that I needed a second away from all the commotion and whisked me out of the room for a quick breather. I knew when we hired Rita that we got much more than just a WONDERFUL & TALENTED photographer; throughout our wedding day Rita went above and beyond to make everything run smoothly and stress free for us all while taking photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Even in the months before the wedding Rita was quick to respond to my questions and even met me in person to help with the timeline for our big day. Rita thinks of everything, catches all those tiny details & moments you never want to forget, and somehow keeps you laughing all day!!! She spent the entire day with us even staying a little later to capture some extra dance photos and we started receiving pictures from her THE NEXT DAY!! I cannot recommend Heirloom Photo Company enough. It was by far the best money we put toward our wedding and we will continue to use them for any important events in our lives!" Jocelyn
