Jovanka was a pleasure to work with. Her studio had a comfortable and artistic atmosphere and she made sure I felt at home. Our shoot was spontaneous yet professional, and I felt the freedom to explore all of the options I wanted. She is very responsive and prompt with scheduling conflicts as well. I am very satisfied with the end result and I would return!

Jovanka is the best photographer I have known so far. The best part of her she knows what she is doing . She is truly amazing , talented , friendly and very flexible to work with.

Jovanka was great to work with. We needed a tight turn around for printing and she made it happen. Photos were very professional, exactly what we wanted. I would definitely come back.

Jovanka was so great to work with. After a quick consultation call, she was able to deliver a quote that I found incredibly competitive and fair. Working with her on the day-of was an absolute breeze. We also hired a make-up artist who was great at what she did and was a delite to have on location. I'd recommend anyone looking for professional photography for your company, family, or event to reach out to Jovanka.

I wanted to update this! We returned to Bauwerks just this past winter to get udpated family photos, still with three generations, and this time including the family dog!
Jovanka was awesome with the pooch, and we have great photos as a result. I'm leaving my review from a couple of years ago below, as well.
I went to Bauwerks in December, to have family pictures taken, and we came away with a wonderful set of photos of five of us, including three generations.
I went back last month, with two other folks, to get pictures taken for corporate/professional use, and I'm very happy with those, too.
Jovanka is great at what she does. She is knowledgeable and very good at connecting with people. She was very effective helping us decide what worked best in the family shots, and also for the professional pictures. She helped us relax, and the experience ended up being a lot of fun, as well as producing pictures with which I'm very pleased. I would definitely return if I needed photos again.

I have used Bauwerks Photography Studio for my office website, family reunion and several birthday events with friends. Jovanka is the BEST! She is great at picking the best angles and lightening to capture the moment. I recommend Bauwerks without reservation.

Recently had our maternity photos taken with our dog,and Jovanka was absolutely fantastic!! Our experience was exceptional and our pictures came out gorgeous.I truly love how quickly the turn around time is as well. Had the shoot Saturday, proofs were provided same day, made final selections, and retouched and edited photos returned Wednesday. We would gladly book again with Jovanka.

Jovanka was FANTASTIC! From setting up the shoot to the delivery of the pictures, it was a painless experience. She was really accommodating to our schedules, took time to give suggestions and made all of us feel comfortable during the shoot. The pictures turned out amazing and I would without a doubt suggest Jovanka to anyone looking for professional photos, headshots, artistic shots or anything in between. You will not be disappointed!

I have used Bauwerks and Jovanka exclusively for all photography needs for my law firm and its lawyers for the past 11 years. I cannot recommend them more. Jovanka is so wonderful to work with, putting everyone at ease during the sessions, but most importantly, her work is stellar and creative. The turn around time is fantastic and anything we need from a photography standpoint they deliver on in spades. Whether for personal or business needs, you cannot go wrong putting your faith in Bauwerks and Jovanka.

I'm fairly shy in front of the camera, and Jovanka did a great job of making me feel relaxed and confident. I'm very pleased with the headshot, and would definitely recommend Bauwerks.

I brought several cats that I was fostering to Bauwerks for some glamor shots. Bruno was amazing in capturing the cats' personalities and just providing some absolutely gorgeous photography that captivated prospective adopters. Each cat found it's forever home and I still cherish the beautiful pictures.

My family, and all of my friends who have seen any photos done by Bauwerks, loves every photo Jovanka has ever taken for us. Jovanka has come to our home for informal family photos and to photograph a huge birthday/pool party. We have taken children, cats, and dogs to her studio to be photographed individually and together. She is professional, diligent, responsive, patient, and a delight to work with. We would recommend Bauwerks to anyone.

I use Bauwerks as my photo place for my professional and personal projects.
Bruno Passigati and Jovanka Novakokic are top notch professional that will fulfill all your photo needs. They are not only excellent at their craft but will listen and give you advice on all your photo opportunities. They are courteous, detail-oriented and will give you the highest quality photos that will bring a lifetime of memories. I cannot say enough about them and for the quality work they do they are also reasonable on there rates.

Having my pictures taken with Jovanka was a pleasure. She is fun to be with, professional, incredibly talented, made me feel at home and very comfortable. Her studio is easy to get to and there is a parking lot. The actual space is super cool too. Jovanka is easy to get ahold of if necessary. She was on time and efficient. I was in and out for headshots in one hour and that included looking over numerous photos and selecting what I liked. I highly recommend her for any kind of photos you may need. You won't be disappointed.

Our experience with Jovanka was wonderful! I booked her studio to take some professional photos for my daughter and we are very pleased. My daughter was a bit nervous and not really looking forward to it. Jovanka made the entire photo session very easy and enjoyable. She is very professional, organized and creative. We had a great time that day and all pictures came out amazing. I highly recommend her, she is a true artist. Thank you Jovanka!

Over the last 10 years, I have used Bauwerks photography several times for various projects from promo shots and portraits to pet photos. Jovanka and Bruno are experts in exceptional customer service! Jovanka always knows how to get the best shots from me and my pets! I wouldn't go anywhere else! I highly recommend Bauwerks!

I went to Bauwerks Studio for my head shots. Let me tell you, this would have normally terrified me. I hate...and that is an understatement...photographs of myself. I arrived completely nervous and honestly not looking forward to it. After meeting Jovanka and Bruno, the owners, I was immediately confident that this would be not only an amazing experience but I would be completely satisfied. During the shoot they made me feel relaxed and confident in myself. They captured me in photographs that show my true personality. The result was amazing photographs...yep, got more than just head shots...that I love to show people. I can not say thank you enough to Bauwerks for the amazing photos.

We have had several Photo shoots done and each time I have been so happy and impressed with the quality. Jovanka does a great job of taking multiple photos to capture every possible moment.

My 16 year old son is very shy but Jovanka was extremely friendly - not pushy - and got him to SMILE alot! Photos look awesome! Definitely will use them again!
