    My wife and I had headshots done for my website by Song's View photography. Who would have thought that headshots could be so much fun! They had us try various fun poses and even brought out the Christmas background for more fun! What a great experience!

    To all the ladies out there and all the men with wives or girl friends, I encourage you to have a boudoir session with Jennifer Hodes, Song's View Photography. Yesterday was without a doubt, one of the most amazing days I've had in a very long time. I found something inside myself that I lost a long, long time ago. Every woman should experience this feeling....every woman.
  • Lynx B. Aug 18, 2015
    Song's View has now completed 3 photo shoots for me. The husband and wife team are professional in every aspect. I love how they stylize each shot through the way they set up each pose and set the lighting. They have a studio set up in their home complete with multiple backdrops, and a changing room complete with all the things you may have forgotten (jewelry, makeup, etc.). They are also willing to travel to outdoor locations. All around they are truly fantastic!

    Jennifer had a really busy day shooting and still went out of her way to meet my husband and I on the day we found out we were having a girl. I had some ideas for the gender reveal photos and she pulled them off flawlessly and came with her own ideas as well. Even after the initial set of pictures wasbdone, she waited around with us to do more pictures at sunset. She rushed home and edited my photos so quickly too! Thanks to her I got to announce the gender of our baby on THE SAME DAY with the best pictures. Thanks jen!

She's so encouraging and uplifting and amazing at what she does it just blows my mind. Never felt more beautiful and confident till she opened my eyes top my capabilities. She does not disappoint! (:
  • Steffen F. Jun 8, 2015
    I hired Jen to shoot my senior photos as I got ready to leave my university and I couldn't have been happier. She was able to setup an appointment that fit around my schedule, we discussed ideas ahead of time so that I got exactly what I wanted and she was still able to improvise on the spot when she saw an opportunity to get a unique look. I would (and have) recommend her to anyone for any kind of photography work.

    Songs View did the photography for my grandmother's 90th birthday party. She and her partner came out to our location and shot hundreds of photos. They were very accommodating, and the rate was perfect. We were able to print all the photos we wanted from their website, as well as share them with family members. We will definitely use this service in the future.

    I found Jennifer through Thumbtack. Being new to Texas and not knowing many people I didn't have any photographer recommendations. Through this site I was able to see her profile and get quotes. After speaking we decided to not only book for just ceremony pictures (we got married in our house) but to do a photo shoot at the Stockyards a few hours prior to the ceremony. My husband hates having his picture taking and I have scars I'm very self-conscience about. Jennifer & Mike took that into consideration and made the photo shoot fun for us and we were able to relax. She helped be the buffer between family & friends who unintentionally get in the way of photos and your timeline and then when we went to do our first dance and they played the wrong song, Jennifer jumped in and pulled up our song on her phone so we could have our moment. Can't wait to see the pics, we got a few previews on her camera that day and they look amazing. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!!!!

    Jennifer and her husband delivered more than we ever could have expected. Absolute professionalism, overflowing with kindness, helpful above and beyond just photography. Jennifer stuck to the bride throughout a disastrous event... The Pastor failed to show! Not only did Jennifer keep the bride calm.. she also found us a replacement officiant on ridiculously short notice. Suffice to say, she saved the wedding. We will be recommending Song's View to everyone we know, and using them for any and every event we can. You couldn't ask for a better service.

    It was obvious that Jennifer has been doing photography for many years, as she took her time to ensure that lighting, pose, and all the details were in place before the pictures even began. In addition, she knew what type of poses portrayed what attitudes. This was especially important, as I am a business profesional and desire to apeal trustworthy to potential clients. The quality I received in my head shots far exceeded the price I paid; I would have expected to pay at least double for what I received in my photo shoot. I am glad I chose Song's View photography to assist me in creating a professional look for my business cards and website.

    My fiance and I needed wedding pictures as well as some family shots with my teenage son. During the phone interview Jennifer asked loads of questions in order to establish what we wanted. I told her that we were interested in outdoor pictures but not willing to do any major walking. She assured me that she would find something that would work. When picture day arrived we did our wedding shots at her studio then changed clothes for the outdoor stuff. We traveled less than 10 minutes to the most perfect area for our pictures. She managed to find a place with 7 ideal picture settings all within about a 500 foot radius. The pictures by the way are all stunning. My soon to be husband and I are so proud of them and look forward to showing off what a handsome couple we are. I should also say that Jennifer went out of her way to ensure our comfort both at her studio and in the field. I can't recommend her highly enough. If you want a quality photographer that is reasonably priced and extremely accomodating, then Jennifer is the right choice.

    Jennifer made the entire process from initial contact, throughout the photo shoot, to viewing final photos exciting and fun. I am very camera shy. Jennifer helped me feel very comfortable by providing suggestions about what to wear as well as how to pose. I felt prepared for the shoot. I was surprised by how much time Jennifer spent taking the photographs and how invested and professional she remained throughout the process. I was surprised and very pleased with the quality and amount of photos she provided. I felt I got much more than I expected for the price.

    My daughter was supposed to get married last Saturday and the wedding had to be postponed. Instead Jennifer took bridal portraits of my daughter, her ring bearer and flower girl. The results were fantastic! Jennifer is a photographer with a very good eye. She's great with children as well. The kids listened to her, laughed and took some awesome pictures. I'm extremely pleased with the job that she performed for us. We can't wait to have some of these pictures printed for display. I look forward to being able to use her my daughter's wedding/reception photos as well as any future family pictures.

    I asked for some photos of myself to use on social networking sites. I had a two hour photo shoot. It was so much fun that I am working on reasons to do it again with or for other people! Jennifer and her partner took pictures constantly so I have hundreds of photos to choose from with different expressions and wardrobe. I have always been a camera-phobe. After seeing these pictures I am happy to say the I wasn't the problem, it must have been those behind the camera before I met Jennifer Hodes. I will use her and recommend her to others.

    Jennifer has been the best photographer I've ever had. In other photo shoots I've been given a set of proofs with the photographers logo all over them and only been allowed to pick a certain number to keep, and I couldn't get any of the others printed, or could only get them printed through the photographer. Jennifer gave me all the photos she took of me during my shoot without any logo, and I can print them whenever I want. The quality was excellent, and I really liked that every photo had some color and clarity edits to them. I got my pictures back really fast! I was also impressed that I got the fun pictures and not just the posed ones. Some of the "out take" type photos kept me and my family laughing! I'll use her services again and again without question! I'll never consider going anywhere else!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm constantly researching all the latest photography techniques, all the latest equipment, and making sure my equipment stays completely up-to-date. I keep my equipment in top condition, and have multiple lenses to handle every lighting situation, as well as top notch lights in studio and on location that can be used. A true photographer invests countless hours when not shooting making sure we stay up to date with the latest in technology, and never stops learning! Thats what I do, always. I never feel like I know it all, and I'm always growing!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Please visit my website for a current basic pricing structure. I am pleased to provide you a general pricing guide, however some pricing may vary, and there may be specials available. Please check the Facebook page for current specials or give me a call! While true professional photography is not what one would consider "cheap", I do believe that it can remain affordable. There is a price point for everyone. It's my mission to provide the top level photography that I do at prices that nearly anyone can afford. I look forward to working with you for your photography needs!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do wedding, portrait, family, events, modeling, boudoir, sports, location, corporate, headshot, and product photography with an eye for excellence! I bring the studio to you or give you a studio to come to and provide the highest quality professional photography complete with optimal retouching of every photo for color and clarity! We can shoot your event with two photographers so that nothing gets missed, and we can bring a full top of the line mobile studio photo booth set to you for that perfect posed photograph!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
There are a few things that should be at the top of your list. First is does the photographer REALLY listen to you and is he/she responsive to your needs and desires for your shoot? Secondly, does the photographer do this full time? Next, does he or she have the right equipment to shoot what I need properly? Also, importantly, what do past clients say about the photographer in their reviews? Look at the body of the work of the photographer that you are interested in. If you like the look and feel of their photos, that could be a good fit for you! Make sure you see consistency in their work as well.
