"Okay, seriously, these images are awesome! We are extremely pleased with all of them. There are stories in each one. I can’t believe the variety of locations and subjects you captured in such a short period of time! You were really pumping! Thank you so much for all your hard work and your quick turnaround on the deliverables. I understand you were a joy to work with! I hope you will want to come back again, because you surely will be invited."
Sandra Everts - Milwaukee School of Engineering
“It's hard to focus on one or two things that Jeff does well, because he does everything well. Jeff looks at assignments differently, providing a fresh approach that's always welcome. Our employees and students enjoy working with him on shoots, and I always feel like we're speaking the same language. It would be tough to find a photographer that delivers quality on this level for the cost. Jeff's work has really been a valuable asset for us.”
David Gallianetti - Lakeland University
"Jeff is one of the best photographers I have worked with. He has the ability to see things no one else does and capture the spirit of a person or group. He has also made technology come alive and the potentially dull object enthralling. Jeff is up to any challenge—and I have thrown many at him over the years. Looking forward to many more great sessions!"
Patti Glaser-Martin - Holy Family Memorial
“I have often had the pleasure of working with Jeff. He takes an idea beyond the limit - there is never a "bad" shot in the mix! His work truly comes off the page showing creativity, dimension, skill, and quality. He loves what he does and is a pleasure to work with on a photo shoot. A few laughs, good perspective, and a great product are the rewards one gets when they bring Jeff to the creative team.”
Stephanie Larson - Creative Communications
“Jeff has amazing talent. His photographs tell a story and capture people very well. Jeff is great to work with!”
Charmaine Jankowski - Prevea/HSHS
“Jeff is an excellent photographer who will work with you from start to finish and get the images you need to carry you through an entire year! His photographs work well for many types of pieces -- from brochures to billboards or even the web. He is reliable and works easily with all types of photo subjects. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a hard-working photographer at an amazing value. His work was worth every penny, and his images are memorable and versatile.”
Carrie Hoppe - University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan
“I hired Jeff while working as an event manager, producing events for high value clients of a Fortune 500 company. Jeff always arrived at the event venue ahead of time to take photos of the venue to include in my final shoot as well as scope out the best backdrops. He was always easy to work with, would travel anywhere and was personable with all of the event guests. Jeff is a stealth photograher. He was unobtrusive and unnoticed at the events but somehow managed to get the most amazing, creative shots that were treasured by our clients and guests and made just the right impression to win over our prospects. I would highly recommend Jeff to photograph any corporate or personal event of any kind!”
Cheri Knutson - Ameriprise Financial
"We’ve heard many wonderful compliments on the book, and can’t thank you enough for all the work you did on it! We were thrilled to see so many of the pictures included- it was so difficult to narrow things down from the amazing shots you took. You made a great addition to our event this year. I know I’d mentioned during the event as well that there were many remarks about how personable and patient you were to the attendees. They enjoyed having you with them. Thank you so much for providing our guests with a wonderful memory from our event! Hope we are able to work together again in the future."
Kendra Wamsley - Toyota MotorSales, Denver Region
"Jeff is absolutely first-rate in his field. He has my highest recommendation as the first person to call for your event photography needs. His work was super impressive the first time I worked with him 10 years ago and remains as high caliber today. He is always a pleasure to work with too. When planning your event, call Jeff and you can cross your photography worries off your list!"
Stuart Merritt - Lakeland University
"Jeff is highly motivated, exceptionally creative, open to suggestions, honest, fun-loving, kind, an excellent conversationalist and has a keen eye for photo composition. I can't give a higher recommendation than I am giving to Jeff Kernen! He is AWESOME!"
Sue Mroz - Wisconsin Newspress Inc.
"Marian University hires Jeff for a variety of photo sessions, including athletic events, ceremonies and institutional publication shots. He is always on time and the photos we receive are of the highest quality and what we were looking for when describing the shot needed. Jeff is very easy to work with and continues to be the main photographer for Marian."
Lisa Kidd - Marian University
“I have known Jeff since hiring him as the staff photographer at my former job and I have watched him grow as a person and a photographer and now to the point of having his own photography business. He is extremely knowledgeable and produces photographic results promptly and with creative flair. I look forward to working with him on future projects.”
Nancy Jusky - United Way

Erik and I enjoyed working with you both saturday and sunday and I’m pretty sure you are now part of the family, whether you like it or not ;) Your skills and professionalism are bar none and you always give such a personalized experience, how could we not choose you for all the big moments in our life.

"Wanted to shoot you a note to say thank you. The whistling straits golf trip was the first time I was able to spend a few days alone with my dad since 2011. Having those father son pictures mean more to me than you know. Can’t thank you enough for your time and work to offer us something that will be framed in our house forever. Perfect reminder of the good times we had and all the great people we were fortunate enough to meet. Thank you."
"Those photos are stunning!! Thank you so much for capturing all the joys and laughter of our day – we couldn’t stop smiling and had to go through them numerous times! Love how genuine all the reactions are and appreicate your artistic framing and perspective. We are very happy how the photos turned out!"
