An army brat whose family finally settled in East Tennessee, I spent my adolescent years helping with my family's Bridal/Formal wear and catering business. While I didn't always enjoy it, I grew to really appreciate the momentous occasions. Though bridal gown and tuxedo styles have changed dramatically over the years, one thing remains unchanged. A man and a woman exchanging vows before God and family and friends is always a wonderful celebration. I left home to attend Savannah College of Art and Design where I was graduated with a BFA in photography. For the next twenty years I worked as a photojournalist at Savannah Morning News where I received numerous awards and contributed to many other publications. I've always had a great respect for our military, and had the privilege of covering our local troops on deployments several times, including as an embedded photographer with the 3rd Infantry Division during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Working as a photojournalist provided me a wide range of experiences and the ability to tell great stories in pictures. I always anticipate the candid moments, look for the unexpected, and capitalize on every photo opportunity. I pride myself on producing high quality work in a timely manner for a reasonable price and with superior customer service. I would love the opportunity to document your special day.

Holley · Getting married on 10/20/2020
I was first drawn to John because of his appreciation on the military and experience photographing in a combat zone because my husband and I are both Army Officers. We wanted someone photographing our wedding, which incorporated military customs and traditions, who had an appreciation for military values. From the first time I met John, I felt comfortable knowing that he was going to listen to what we wanted and I trusted him in photographing our special day. He was professional and took the time to make sure everything we wanted captured that day was done. He ensured that every special moment was photographed and we were very pleased with the outcome. John knew what was important and special to us and made sure that was portrayed in the photos. He was kind and easy to work with and made our special day stress-free! I highly recommend John for weddings or any other special event! Our wedding was also featured on Borrowedandblue.com because he did such a great job!Sent on 03/24/2014

I cannot say enough good things about John! He was the most personable, professional, and compassionate photographer we could ever hope for. He was so easy to work with and truly wanted to capture every moment of the wedding from the beginning to the end. We could not have been happier with the photos!Sent on 03/05/2017

John's amazing. He's quick and was very kind to all of our guests, including some elderly family members. He was very patient, even though we chose to have our wedding at noon, a challenge for any photographer. We just took lots of photographs over the course of the day, so that we got as much of the cloud cover as possible.Sent on 01/03/2016
He interacted so positively with us, and allowed us to enjoy the day. When my guests got silly, he captured it. It was a wonderful day, and John helped make sure that we had a great time.
