    Perfectly captured our day

    John was an absolute breeze to work with. He made us all feel so comfortable the entire day and captured amazing photos, even the action shots are perfect. He's experienced and knows how a wedding should go and helps make sure the day moves along as it should. The final photos are provided via web link and broken down into categories, getting ready, ceremony, formals etc, which makes it feel like you're reliving your day all over again. I booked John without meeting him and based pretty much on reviews and the reviews don't lie, I don't think I could have chosen a better photographer. He's easy to work with, provides amazing end results and the price is right. I will 100% use him for any other photography needs. Absolutely fantastic.

    Amazing!!!!

    John is amazing! He was so supportive and positive during the whole covid wedding process. We have over 100 engagement photos and over 700 wedding photos! Usually most couple only have one or two favorites; we have 700 favorites. Every photo captures so much detail and is edited so beautifully. I love to brag that instead of just having an “assistant” John partners with other professional photographers in the area when you pick the package that includes 10 hours, engagement photos, and a 2nd photographers. We were lucky enough to have Rob Hickey has our second photographer on our wedding day. Both John and Rob were very friendly and professional and we received tons of compliments from our wedding party and family who worked directly with them . John met with us again 2 weeks before our wedding to plan out the big day so that we were able to capture photos in every location we wanted. He had many great suggestions and you can tell that he has a lot of experience in the wedding industry. I highly recommend John to every couple. You can tell he truly cares about his work and that he doesn’t leave until he feels that he captured every special moment; John stayed well over 10 hours at our wedding. Your photographer is definitely your most important vendor on your big day; and if you’re reading this review you have found the best photographer for quality and quantity in wny!

    Totally wonderful!!!

    John was the best decision we made for vendors for our wedding- he did our small covid ceremony and then the big one the following year, and we got so lucky to find him. His prices were more than reasonable. His work is amazing. He is extremely responsive, and he got our photos back very quickly. He also did a fantastic job of remaining calm and organized during all of the stress and chaos of the day! I would highly recommend him!
