"There’s a photo shoot, and then there’s a photoshoot at The Refinery Photo Studio. Truly, this was an experience beyond allof my expectations. From the moment I got the prep email that outlined practically every question I could think of, and many I’d never have considered (drink water before your shoot!), I knew I was dealing an expert in their craft. My time at the studio was fun, casual in nature, but professional in execution. Jessica took the time we needed to make sure we achieved the goal we discussed prior to the shoot, and got all the shots we needed, and a few bonus ones that left us both floored.There Is no doubt that I will be back, and I’ve already confidently referred several close friends and family here. The Refinery Photo Studio is the real deal."
"Jessica is both fun to work with and professional in how she handles her work. She was recommended to me by a mutual business colleague and I couldn't be happier. The photos she took are amazing and I cannot wait to display them on all my marketing materials going forward. I recommend Jessica highly for any professional photos you need."
"I can't thank you enough for the amazing job you did on the Coakley project. Both you skill and personality were more than I ever could have asked for.I look forward to our next project together!!"
Once again, I want to let you know how fabulous these photos are. Just beautiful. Some of the most beautiful photos we’ve seen for a cover story in the magazine. I will certainly be sharing your name with others here who need a photographer in the Milwaukee area!
It was a pleasure to work with you on this project. You really put everyone at ease. The time you took to make sure the shots were right is evident in the end product. Thanks again!
"When Kate showed me samples of Jessica’s work, I was very happy to know there is someone in Milwaukee who can deliver such great artistic quality. As an on-camera acting coach and casting director for film and tv media, I look at hundreds of actor’s headshots yearly and I can say, without a doubt, that Jessica’s work certainly meets the highest standards and quality that one expects from the best of Los Angeles and New York photographers. In the entertainment industry, headshots are the actor’s business card and they must be exceptional! They must capture the actor’s personality and essence at a glance. Jessica absolutely delivers and I will definitely recommend her to all of my acting students for their headshots. Thank you, Jessica! So happy to have found you!"

Hello Jessica - I had such a good time today. Thanks to you and Kate and Theresa for making me feel so comfortable. John and I have gone through these several times. (I love that my husband of 38 years said, "can't we get them all?" Me: "What the hell are you going to do with all of them? John: " Carry them around in my wallet and look at them." LOL).
You, my dear, are a pro. "
"GREAT! Thank you Jessica! We’re thrilled with how these turned out."
"they are REALLY good pictures.. like really good."
Thank you for photographing our special day! We can't wait to see the photos! You made us feel so comfortable, making us laugh and be silly!
You're an awesome photographer!

Hi there! Feedback has been great - a few colleagues might be creating a reason to come to Milwaukee to have you photograph them! Thanks for making the experience painless and for the great final results. It was all the wind machine :)
These are great! Thanks so much - you did awesome job!
Jessica, you make magic happen! Thanks for the best mug shot yet!!
I was in desperate needed of head shot for my website ASAP. Jessica's level of professionalism, efficiency and attention to detail blew me away. As I am someone who is generally uncomfortable in front of the camera, she immediately put me at ease. Her use of lighting to bring out my features was amazing and her recommendation of pose and outfits were spot on. Most importantly, the portrait itself was perfect for what I needed; not only for my business but it made me feel as if I was captured at my best. I would recommend Ms. Kaminski to anyone looking for a portrait done right!
Jessica did an outstanding job helping me through the process of getting professional pictures taken. She's very approachable and was able to guide me through wardrobe selection and answered any questions I had. I would recommend her to anyone in need of any type of professional photography and will certainly be using her again!What a great experience!
I came to the Refinery for a corporate headshot I could use for LinkedIn. Jessica did a great job of making me feel comfortable and being very professional. It had been a long time since I had my picture taken in a professional setting, but Jessica did an amazing job in instructing me on the poses, getting the lighting right, and I completely trusted everything she did. Jessica is very experienced and has a great way of communicating what she wants to make the process go very efficiently. Very easy to work with! After finishing taking the pictures, she helped pick out the best ones, and I felt like she made every effort at each step to make sure I was satisfied. The final pictures were sent to me the same day, and turned out better than I could have ever expected!I highly recommend the whole experience. If you want professional, high quality photos, you can do no better than The Refinery. A+ 10/10
I love the shots and they capture just what I was hoping for. Thank you so much! I had a wonderful time during our session and I'm thrilled with the results.
