John is the best!!
My husband and I are completely blown away by John and thrilled with our photos! He asked to meet with us at our wedding venue a few months before our wedding date in order to plan out where we wanted to take photos, and to discuss what shots we wanted to capture. He gave recommendations for locations and we loved all of them. We sent John a list of poses/groups of people and locations at the venue where we wanted the pictures to be taken. On the day of the wedding, he and his assistant stuck to the list and made sure we got everything we wanted. They were flexible when hair and makeup ran late and we had less time than we wanted before the ceremony to take photos. On a very overwhelming day, John made us feel comfortable and kept us on track, reminding us when there was a specific photo we wanted to get. He knew when to take a step back and let us chat with our guests, and when to push for a photo. We are so glad we had all of these precious memories captured!Sent on 11/05/2019
John and his assistant were moving nonstop, making sure they captured everything, while also getting unique photos. One of our guests commented that they'd never seen a photographer work so hard to get a shot. John had such creative ideas for fun photos with our flower girl, wedding party, and even a photo outside at night, with a purple backlight. He turned the photos around quickly and they are truly incredible. We couldn't be happier with our decision to go with John for our wedding!

Amazing photographer, stunning photos!
Our experience with John was absolutely amazing. Our pictures look stunning and we very much recommend him! John had met us at our venue a few months prior to our wedding to see everything beforehand since he never did a wedding at our venue before, which we felt went completely above and beyond. He is also very creative and artistic- many of the pictures he played around with reflections and mirrors which all look really beautiful and elegant. John captured so many great moments and looking at our pictures makes us so happy.Sent on 11/17/2019

John and his assistant Elizabeth were absolutely amazing! I first contacted John more than a year before our wedding and he was so helpful to us. His words of advice helped me a lot throughout the planning process. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to weddings and I was so thankful to have him as a resource for advice. The day of, John and Elizabeth arrived early to make sure they were ready to start shooting on time. They made sure I got every picture I wanted, which was a lot, in a timely manner so things could stay on schedule. We've just received our pictures and they are absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend John for all of your photography needs!Sent on 10/02/2019
