I have been getting compliments on my photos from the wedding nonstop - the best part is, that I wholeheartedly agree that those compliments are valid. Beauty, vivacity and happiness were captured in my pictures. John and his assistant made sure to connect with me early on and I feel like we all three worked together to achieve the shots we wanted, but I never felt any pressure to make sure that they were capturing precious moments. I knew they had it under control and I felt taken care of and able to enjoy my wedding. John is more than a photographer - he finds what makes your wedding special and unique, he looks for the human connections and displays of love that occur at the wedding and makes sure that they are preserved moments in time. I couldn't recommend him enough, he's a pleasure to work with and a true artist.Sent on 09/19/2018

John was amazing!
John was THE BEST wedding photographer. We live in Los Angeles and were planning to have our wedding in Idyllwild. Around the same time, Idyllwild experienced a horrible fire. After the fire was out, John offered to drive to our venue to check out the damage. He took video of the property and emailed it to us. Although the venue technically wasn’t affected, he recommended that we choose another location because fire retardant had been applied nearby. We then began looking at options in Julian (similar vibe as Idyllwild, but not affected by fire) and John offered to make the three hour trip for our event. We couldn’t have been happier! John arrived on time and was ultra prepared. He has a lovely demeanor. He was kind and engaging, but sincerely wanted us to focus on each other on our special day. John was perfectly present and discreet at the same time. We received his photos in less than two weeks and they are beautiful! We’re so happy he was a part of our special day and captured memories that we’ll hold dear forever. Thank you, John!Sent on 01/03/2019

Made my desert wedding photo dreams become a reality
Hiring John for our honeymoon photos was the absolute BEST decision. Not only is John an amazing photographer with an eye for light, but he was super responsive, flexible, and even spent more time with us than originally planned. We felt comfortable with John from the get-go, and I appreciated his thoughtfulness to minimize our effort as he planned his shots (I was hiking through Joshua Tree in a wedding dress, so appreciated his focus on planning before he asked us to move or pose). On top of all this, John was fun, easy to talk to, and got our photos to us in a matter of days. We were BLOWN AWAY when we saw our final photos and are so happy we chose John. He made what seemed like a big undertaking into a wonderful experience both in the moment and in reflection as we've looked through our photos. I've even had friends tell me they want to hang MY wedding photos on THEIR walls because the photos are just that stunning. We'll be coming up with excuses to travel back to CA to do another photo shoot with John!Sent on 11/14/2018
John Pacheco Photography's reply:I'm so glad that you love your photos! You and Ben were fun to shoot with. Any time you're back in SoCal, get a hold of me and I'd love to photograph you again!
Working with John and his team was an incredible experience. They are true professionals willing to go the extra mile to cover the wedding entirely. They were easy-going, focused, and the prefect balance of being detail-oriented yet fun and affable. I'm looking forward to referring them and also working with them again ASAP. Thanks for everything!!!
John is such a caring person and a beautiful photographer. He takes his time to really tell your story. Give him a shout if you are in the area!
