Team photography coverage, never contrived, never intrusive.
We're a married photography team and professional makeup artist too! We have 20 years of experience in the commercial and television industry. Our approach to photographing weddings is to plan ahead and keep it simple. We want you to experience your wedding day --not a photo shoot.
We love images that are graceful, genuine and full of life. Never contrived. In our opinion capturing natural, beautiful, spontaneous stories is a creative process that begins well before the event day. We want to hear about your plans and what's most important to you regarding your imagery. We include a site visit to envision your event firsthand. We consider the ambient light quality with regard to the season, sunset time and ceremony time and create a photography timeline specific to your event, based on priorities and a carefree photography experience for you and your guests. Planning ahead for each event supports our desire to consistently deliver high quality results and gorgeous stories each and every time. If you'd like more info please give us a call to discuss your event. Congratulations! -J&C Please check on our availability by contacting us directly -the calendar on this profile is definitely not accurate. We also no longer list our phone number due to high sales calls. Thanks for understanding.

Easy to work with and fantastic pictures
John and Colette were great to work with! We were remotely planning our wedding but they were very communicative leading up to the wedding and easy to work with on the day of. They have a sharp attention to detail, a great eye for shots, and were great at getting us and our family and friends feeling comfortable and natural in front of the camera. We received a preview quickly and our full suite of photos within the timeframe they quoted us. We are so happy with how the photos turned out and will cherish them forever!Sent on 02/28/2020

Best people to capture your day
We had John and Colette do our engagement photos in Old Town Pasadena and our wedding at the Ebell in Long Beach in September 2019. We were drawn to how 'natural' John and Colette's style is. Their photos aren't overly posed, fake, or cheesy -- they truly capture the feel of the moment.Sent on 12/12/2019
We used our engagement photos for our Save the Dates and everyone commented on how beautiful the photos turned out. We also recently received our wedding previews and we are blown away not just by how stunning all the pictures turned out, but also by the small, candid moments that they were able to capture.
I couldn't have imagined working with anyone else during this process. My husband and I are goofy goobers who feel strange being in front of the camera, but during the engagement shoot John and Colette made us feel comfortable and were able to direct us in a way that didn't feel strained or forced. And leading up to our wedding day, Colette was very involved in planning our timeline to make sure we had enough time to capture all the important moments and all the family/group photos. It definitely helped relieve a lot of stress for us!
We cannot recommend John and Colette enough. They are delightful people and truly incredible artists.

John & Colette are fantastic, and so wonderful to collaborate with.
We hired John and Colette to photograph our Santa Ynez wedding this past May, and wow! They did a phenomenal job. We're so very happy with the pictures they took; they're beautiful and also capture so many of the most important and emotional moments of the day. I also opted to have Colette do my makeup for the ceremony, and it was an added bonus that she was there throughout the day and evening to touch me up when needed. I can't recommend them enough. It was a pleasure working with them both; they're lovely people and I'm just so happy we hired them.Sent on 07/14/2019
Stunning photography by John & Colette. They have a poetic eye, and a way to capture moments and details others would miss. Their lighting is gorgeous, framing perfect, true pros.
If you love romance you have to love John & Colette Photography. With an eye for detail especially architecture, John excels in capturing each stunning couple as well as their romantic surroundings. Colette brings to the team her warmth and calm plus her beauty skills as your personal "day of" make-up stylist..your just can't top that level of service with a smile.
Working with John and Collette is such a great experience. They do wonderful work and really can capture the feel and emotion of such important vents as weddings! They are both really great people and really fun to work with. I know that my clients are in good hands with them and their talented photography!
