Not joshin' ya, he's phenomenal!
I have began writing and rewriting this review more times than I can count. There are no number of words that I can use to describe just how magical our experience was with Josh. Let’s start from the beginning: Josh found me through an #engaged tag on Instagram. He reached out, said he was a traveling photographer, and offered me a stellar deal he was having at the time. Committing to any big chunk of money like that required me to take some time to think about it. After doing some research, deep thinking, and even reaching out to past clients of his, I knew I HAD to have him photograph our big day! Not only was his price unbeatable, but from the information I gathered through others and through his own Instagram page, I knew he was the perfect fit for our outdoor fall wedding.
After booking Josh, we continued our communication through social media. I felt like I had known him forever and that I was talking to a friend, not a vendor. Fast forward to the day of our wedding…Josh arrived at the wedding site (my brother’s house in the country) before my husband, Dan, and I got there (I’m ALWAYS late). Josh and my brother hit it off, and he immediately began photographing the décor and the wedding venue. When we arrived, the first thing I noticed was his easy-going personality and of course, his stylist outfit! I was not sure if it would be awkward meeting a social media buddy, but when I said I felt like I have known him my whole life, I meant it.
Josh’s professionalism was unmatched. He photographed Dan and me getting dressed, and even helped pin on Dan’s and my stepson, Aiden’s, boutonnieres. It was obvious this was not his first nuptial rodeo. He helped me plan my first-look shoot with Aiden, and even though it was in a small bedroom, it was perfect!
I was really nervous how Dan would handle the hundreds of photos we would take because he can usually last about three before he is tired and the smile subsides. I was amazed at how comfortable he was in front of Josh! He never fussed moving into different poses, and Josh kept up laughing the whole time! Might I add that Josh even climbed a tree IN BLACK PLATFORM LEATHER BOOTS to get some gorgeous aerial view pictures! Now, that’s dedication!
I really cannot say enough about how phenomenal Josh’s services were, and the fact that he walks with the Lord just makes him that much better! Before he left for his couple-hour drive to his parent’s that night, we had a conversation that I’ll never forget. He explained why he calls his business Captivate Photography, and how he feels captivated by God and wants to share his love for God and capture captivating moments with others. This was one of the most pure and genuine moments I have ever shared with someone, especially someone I barely knew.
I could go on and on (and in some respects, I have) about how pleased we were to have had such an extraordinarily talented and authentic photographer capture the raw, heartfelt moments of the most special day of our lives. Josh was a stranger in the beginning but left as an honorary member of our family. His work left me absolutely speechless and filled my heart with overwhelming joy! If you look at any of his work, you’ll see, the pictures speak for themselves! And of course, I must add that Josh snuck a piece of hydrangea from where we said our vows and sent them to us in a picture frame with our wedding date written in as a wedding gift! Josh is that type of guy that goes above and beyond to make your day the most memorable it can be and makes you an even better person for simply knowing him.Sent on 04/05/2021

Amazing quality, worth every penny
I am convinced that Joshua Scott is a photography wizard. He keeps the mood light with music and conversation, making sure everyone is comfortable. I’ve been doing sessions with Josh since i was a freshman in college, and had the honor of having him as the photographer at my wedding. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone looking to capture all the important moments of their big day.Sent on 03/19/2021

Josh is amazing!
Josh is absolutely amazing!! We booked him to be our wedding photographer and I could not be happier. He takes the time to explain his vision to you and is genuinely so excited to be with you. His excitement made me feel more excited and comfortable. He also got our engagement pictures to us the same day that we took them!! I would highly recommend Josh. It is the best and easiest decision you will ever have to make for your wedding. Our guests and bridal party loved him just as much as we did! Don't miss out on using him for your wedding!Sent on 03/22/2021
