Let me start by saying that my husband and I are not picture people - we are introverted people and the idea of a bunch of staged photos at say, I don't know, our own wedding was very intimidating. But, wanting to document the fact that we were, in fact, young-ish at one time, we began researching to find the perfect person for the job. Most photographers I contacted were impersonal to say the least. I was swarmed with form letters, price sheets, and surprisingly-short-closing-windows-of-opportunity-act-now-or-lose-your-date letters. Then I found PJ.Sent on 06/04/2020
Instantly, communicating with him was warm and personal, but not at all invasive or pushy. He was willing to work with us about our specific, individualized needs and customize a package for us. I instantly got the feeling that he was as excited about our wedding as we were! We booked him for May 30, 2020 and...then Coronavirus happened. We were shredded. Initially, it looked like things might open up and we could hold the wedding regardless, but, alas, it was not meant to be.
We ended up holding a ceremony, regardless, with just over a dozen of our closest friends and family at our home. PJ stayed in constant - but, again, not pushy - contact as we all went through the pandemic together. Again, he was so flexible and was willing to work with us to put together a smaller package, using some of the time we had booked for our full wedding.
On the day of, PJ was enthusiastic, energetic, and a lot of fun to work with. AND THEN! (not kidding), it started to rain. Last minute, we had to drag our ceremony from the outdoors to inside the (fully functioning for horses) barn. We were not prepared to host in there and it was not at all decorated for such an event. Nonetheless, it was very special for us and PJ captured the day in all of its slapdash, haphazard, midst-of-a-pandemic glory. The photographs are exactly what we wanted and these two introverts were very comfortable working with him.
And did I mention that we even threw taking pictures with horses at him? He was amazing.
A very special thank you to PJ for being a sincere pleasure and joy to work with. Guys like these are hard to find these days - book him now!

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
We are so glad we found P.J. from Fits and Stops Photography. From the early planning stages, he was attuned to our needs and photographic wishes. Prior to booking him for the wedding, we did an engagement photo session with him. We were very happy with his professionalism, creativity, and fun personality. He had the photos to us quickly and we were so happy with his work that we booked him for our wedding. He created a custom wedding photo package tailored to our photography needs.
We planned a relatively small wedding at a family’s vineyard, but then the global pandemic happened. The months and weeks leading up to our wedding P.J. was incredibly flexible, understanding, and accommodating. As our plans continued to change weekly and then daily, P.J. remained positive and supportive. Because of the pandemic, we had so many stressors and challenges, but P.J. was never one of them. We knew no matter what we still wanted to be married on our original date and even if no one could attend, we wanted P.J. there to take photos.
Literally days before our wedding, we finalized a plan to do an elopement ceremony deep in the forest. It required a long drive to the mountains, a bumpy ride on a dirt road, a hike into the woods, and a short climb to a rocky overlook. Not exactly what P.J. thought he was getting into when we booked him for a vineyard wedding months ago, but he was 100% on board with our new plan and so excited for us. It meant a lot to us to have all his positive energy and enthusiasm with us on our wedding day.
Though our wedding did not go as we thought it would when we planned it many months ago, our wedding was beautiful and P.J. did a fantastic job capturing the elopement ceremony. The day after our wedding he sent us a few photos to share with our family and friends sheltering in place around the globe. His photos meant so much to those who were eagerly waiting to gather for our wedding, only to be devastated when we had to alter our plans. Many people commented they felt they were right there with us as they looked through P.J.’s photos. We couldn’t be happier with our photos and our experience working with P.J.
We look forward to the day when we can all gather safely in celebration and we hope we can have P.J. there to capture all those special moments with our family and friends.Sent on 05/27/2020

None better than Fit & Stops Photography!
P.J., the owner and lead photographer for Fits & Stops Photography, is an absolute joy to work with. We sat down for coffee prior to booking and my fiancé and I knew from that moment we'd found our wedding photographer. Everything was a great fit for us, from personality to shooting style. As a semi-professional photographer myself, it was easy to understand the technical side while still appreciating the artistic flare. Scheduling our engagement shoot was a breeze and we had a blast shooting out in Folsom. P.J. was very friendly and communicative during the whole process and allowed us as a couple to really take charge during our shoot. It was easy to share shot ideas and get those angles executed. P.J., however, saw more angles and captured those beautifully all at the same time. He made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and natural in front of the camera! We got our engagement photos back in just a few short business days as opposed to waiting weeks like we were quoted with other vendors. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our wedding and we couldn't keep P.J. and his wife, Erica the second photographer. Had our wedding actually happened, I know in my heart we would have had the same powerful experience as we did during the engagement shoot. You won't regret booking P.J. as your photographer, no matter the occasion! I sincerely cannot wait for our paths to cross again at some point in the future. Thanks, P.J. for your amazing, dedicated, and talented work!!Sent on 06/07/2020
