From the first call to his follow through, J. Stuart was astonishing! He was referred to us and we were so grateful to have connected with him to photograph our wedding.Sent on 08/19/2013
He worked with us to provide a package that met our budget, needs and interest! He traveled from Maryland to Virginia without one complaint. He was on-time for the shots before the wedding and didn't miss a thing and allowed us to come up with our own creative ideas while he helped us when we couldn't think of a pose. :)
He has such a great personality. He is so professional, but really funny too! He easily adapted with everyone's personalities at our wedding and was able to capture them in the pictures. When it got chaotic after the ceremony, he nicely and respectfully controlled everyone to get the right people in the shots. Which was very helpful, because we have a lot of "chiefs" in my family! haha! :)
He was helpful in the beginning to explain how everything worked with the contract, pricing, and timing for specific photos.
WHAT TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHER IS HE OVERALL, you ask?...:
If you are looking for someone who is an experienced wedding photographer, professional, fun to work with, quick on his feet, on-time, captures personality and action in the photos he takes, and is aiming to please, then you need to HIRE J. STUART! :)
J Stuart Harris not only produces an outstanding finished product, he is incredibly easy to work with. Nice guy, can't say enough good things.
I have often videotaped social and family life-cycle events where “J” has been the photographer. “J” is known to me and others as a true photography professional – excellent photos, impeccable social skills, and a caring personality all essential for a memorable event. Definitely a team player, “J” reaches out to other vendors to ensure that we are all on the same page and working in a complimentary way. I would highly recommend “J” to any client who is looking for an excellent result as well as a pleasant and professional photographer to work with.
J is simply the best! He has a wonderful eye, is very professional and really knows his business. He has worked with us many, many times. You cannot go wrong with this photographer.
