CLAYTON, NORTH FORSYTHIA HIGH SCHOOL | Outstanding photographer! She really gets to know her clients before the photo shoot. Jena makes your photo session so enjoyable and relaxing, photos are so natural! Can't say enough about her!!! Does very, very well with guys!!! Not the cookie cutter same poses for everyone. Chooses great locations to fit the personality of your senior. Have I mentioned she is OUTSTANDING!!!

KALA, NORTH FORSYTHIA HIGH SCHOOL | I loved working with Jena and Mr.Bryant! The process was so much fun and the sites were beautiful! They helped me so much with posing and picking out outfits and everything turned out perfect. They made me feel so confident and I had so much fun!
HAILEY, NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | Jena Golden is the best photographer I have ever come across. Her team's ability to not only capture the beauty of the person in the session but their soul is so outstanding to me. Also, I felt like such a celebrity while getting my hair and make up done while the camera kept snapping behind the scenes. Jena definitely made me feel more confident in myself as she gave advice and tons of compliments while posing for pictures. Some advice to people scheduling with Jena Golden is to go in with an open mind about posing, location, and outfits :)

KATIE, LOCUST GROVE HIGH SCHOOL | I had the best day ever with Ms. Jena! She made me feel like today was all about me and did everything she could to make my mom and I happy. The shoot was also a TON of fun, my favorite part was getting to see some of my pictures which looked AMAZING!!
HAILEY, LOCUST GROVE HIGH SCHOOL | We had so much fun with Jena on my daughter's session. We started out with having her hair and makeup done. Then Jena looked at all of Hailey's outfits and thought of a special location for each one. Jena made it special for her and based the whole session around her personality and what Hailey wanted. They really made her feel special and very relaxed. Jena and Jason kept her laughing the whole time which made for some great pictures. Jena really took the time to get to know my daughter so she would get exactly what she wanted out of her senior session which I thought was great. Thank you so much Jena for making her feel special during her senior session.

LOGAN, NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | My experience with Jena was absolutely amazing. After working with her for my senior pictures, I gained a little bit of confidence from having her around and helping me pose and pick out outfits. The survey that asks about your personality really helps with the whole experience and Jena and her associate photographer, Jason (who actually shot my session), are incredibly good at picking locations that matched my personality perfectly. I've only seen one picture so far, but I am absolutely amazed by the way that it turned out and I did not even know it was possible for me to look that great in a picture. If you are looking for incredible pictures, and a fun time, this is definitely the place to go.
HADLEY, WEST FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | I loved working with Ms. Jena! she is so sweet and down to earth and really listens to what the goal of the picture is. During the process of make up and hair it almost made you feel like a real professional model because of how personal and close everyone got. The shoots themselves were really relaxed and exciting. Once I saw the photos on the camera I died. Even without editing the pictures were beautiful. This was an incredible experience!
Absolutely loved my senior session with Jena! BROOKE, NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | She is so much fun and so outgoing and made my session so fun! I had the best time ever! I left my session feeling so confident and so excited to get back my pictures because I knew they'd be amazing!
MYKALEA, NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | I had so much fun during my session with Jena. I enjoyed the funny moments we shared and seeing some of the amazing photos that she took of me.

MICHAELA, WESLYAN HIGH SCHOOL | I loved the personalization Jena gives to each of her shoots. You get to pick your own scenery and she helps each of her clients with their own outfits and gives awesome shoot ideas. Everything about it was very personalized and I love all of my beautiful pictures!

CHARLYN, LOCUST GROVE HIGH SCHOOL | My senior session was great! For my hair and makeup, Ms. Jen made sure she did it exactly how I wanted it to be. The atmosphere for my senior session was so positive and fun. There were so many laughs! Ms. Jena did everything she could to have my pictures turn out the way I wanted them to. She showed me the pictures she took right then and there and that was pretty exciting. My favorite part about my experience was how Ms. Jena and her team really boosted up my confidence.
Thank you Jena for such an amazing photo shoot. Here is the run down of the day that made my daughter feel like a super model. First thing was she had her own personal stylist, makeup artist, and hairstylist Jen who was amazing. Then we meet at the awesome location which had been chosen based on Hailey's personality and style which was perfect. Then we met Jena And Mr. Jason there who welcomed her with hugs and greeted her like a super model. They both spent so much time finding the perfect spot for each outfit and took the time to pose her. And don't forget the fun,we had so much fun. As a mom it is so nice to see your child having a day that's all about her, and this truly was. Thank you again Jena for such a great day and we can't wait to see what you have created you truly are an artist behind the camera. These Senior pictures are the end of one long journey of school and the beginning of another for us. We are so glad we chose you to capture this moment.

MACKENZIE, NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | I absolutely loved every second of my session with Jena!! Not only is she an amazing photographer but she makes you feel completely comfortable and beautiful!! Spending time with her as a model has been such a blessing, her heart is gold! I recommend her for anything and everything you need photographed!

She was way more than just another photographer taking my pictures, she made me feel like a friend. I definitely left the session super excited to get my pictures back and knowing that they were going to be absolutely perfect.
MORGAN, SOUTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | I would have to say Jena is by far one of the best photographers I have encountered. Even before our photo shoot, Jena was constantly in touch getting to know my daughter, her likes and dislikes, and what she was looking for in her senior pictures. We felt like we knew Jena before we even met her! From the minute we walked in, Jena made us feel right at home. My daughter felt so special from the very beginning. Jena and her staff made sure the day was extra special. The make-up artist did a fabulous job, and she was great with recommendations as to what shades to use, and what worked best for the outfits we chose. Jena and Jason did a fabulous job choosing the locations and lighting. I know that my daughter felt like a model with each and every shot! As a mom, it was great to see that Jena could make this day so special, and I loved seeing some of the images as we went through the day. Jena and Jason kept us laughing and made the session so very relaxed and fun! I highly recommend Jena Golden for your Senior pictures and for any other professional pictures you may be in need for! I know I will be back for family pictures!! THANKS JENA GOLDEN PHOTOGRAPHY!!

HANNAH, EAGLE'S LANDING CHRISTIAN ACADEMY | First off, Jen was amazing. Not only did she make my makeup look absolutely amazing, but with Jena and Jen in the same room, the mood was just elevated. The photography session itself was so much fun. Jena and Sarah made really great company. I was laughing the whole session! Throughout the session, Jena would show me some pictures taken which really helped my self esteem when the three of us gushed over the image. Also, I really appreciated Jena standing out in the road for me. The session overall was so enjoyable and by the end of it Sarah, Jena, and I felt like a tiny family. I can't wait to see the pictures, and if I could live the experience over again, I would.
Totally enjoyed Tylar's recent photo shoot. The location that Jena picked to accommodate Tylar's theme was amazing. I also loved how original they were, giving her photos a more genuine feel. I loved the fact that her makeup for the shoot was natural and not too heavy. The make up was not too much and you could really see her natural beauty. The images I saw left me speechless of just how beautiful my daughter looked. Jena's poses for Tylar were very tasteful and very accommodating for her urban theme. Her team was very professional and I trusted their expertise to the fullest because every decision they made showed they put a lot of thought into everything they did starting with the first step of requesting her outfits to selecting the perfect location. Her makeup and hairstylist was top notch. Her assistant was magnificent! I HIGHLY suggest booking your son/daughter's seniors portraits session with Jena Golden today!! So glad I did !!!

I was so excited to find Jena’s website! Her work is stunning, and I knew right away that I wanted her to do my son’s senior photo shoot. From our first conversation months before the shoot Jena was interested in getting to know Nathaniel, his interests and personality, and tailored an experience especially for him. Nathaniel had such a great time! Jena and her assistant were incredibly personable and made us both feel like we had known them forever. She is such a talented photographer with an incredible vision for capturing the perfect moment. She’s also an incredibly sweet and fun person. Thank you Jena for the wonderful experience!

AMELIA, NORTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL | I had an amazing time during my session Jena made me fell so comfortable in front of the camera and we laughed the whole session and the makeup was amazing it was in all one of the best experience in my life.
BRIANNA, LOCUST GROVE HIGH SCHOOL | I chose Jena Golden to take my senior pictures because I know people who have had their pictures taken by her and they all said that she made it fun and kept them laughing and having a good time the whole time they were there. Let me tell you, she did! From the moment I walked in the door we were all laughing and talking like we had all known each other for years.
When I sat in that chair and Jen started doing my makeup, I was thrilled to even be there. The makeup looked fabulous and seeing my pictures on that camera as we went to different locations just made me feel like I was a princess getting all dolled up. Jena made sure to include my mom and I know that made my mom happy but that made me happy as well.
I definitely felt like a superstar and I am super super excited to see my pictures because I know they'll be awesome!
MACKENZIE, FANNIN COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL | Jena was GREAT! She helped my daughter decide which outfits and shoes to wear and how to pose for the best pictures. Everything went so smoothly! I highly recommend Jena and her team!

MARISSA, LOCUST GROVE HIGH SCHOOL | Wow... What an experience! Jena most definitely made me feel like a model for my session. She spent so much time with me and made me feel like these photos were just as important to her as they were to me. I wasn't just another client in her book, I was also a friend.

PEYTON, OLA HIGH SCHOOL | I had a wonderful time! I love Jena, and her photos. She made my session full of fun and laughter. My hair was great, and my make up was amazing. She definitely knows what she's doing, and I wouldn't want anyone else to do my senior pictures. I love her!
