Amazing wedding photographers!

John and Chris and Patricia are a great team! Patricia is very responsive to emails and planed every detail we needed. The engagement photo shoot we did with them really helped us to learn their style and have a more personal relationship with our photographers. We even got to include our dog and little toddler in the photos. When it came to wedding day Chris and John were all over the venue getting every shot without being obtrusive. We asked a lot of them during the reception and they definetly delivered. The photos were ready about a month after the wedding and they all came out so great! We would highly recommend Prestige Barkley for your photography needs!

Amazing photographer

John was supposed to do my wedding but circumstances came up that were beyond his control and he was unable to do it. I worked with Patricia and she quickly got me a colleague and close friend of John's to photograph my wedding and it was perfect. Patricia responded to all my questions along the way very quickly, created a list of photos we wanted taken and worked with the photographer to make sure everything went smoothly which it did. Very professional and friendly, I couldn't have made a better choice. I would highly recommend them!

So Worth It!

John and Patricia did such an amazing job! John will go to any length to get the perfect photo. He鈥檚 flexible, but if you aren鈥檛 super comfortable in front of the camera like my now-husband and I, he鈥檚 happy to direct you and do everything to make you feel comfortable. Our photos came out amazing! We got married at Waters Edge in Westbrook and we snuck away from the reception for a few minutes at sunset to do photos on the beach, and they ended up being our favorites! I never would have thought of that. We also had a guest who was getting in the way with his own camera a lot, and John handled it really well, he was very professional at every step.

John & Patricia are a very talented couple. They each bring personal strengths: technical knowledge, an uncanny eye for lighting, artistry, composition, & styling, and they work together they come up with amazing & beautiful imagery again and again. The passion they share for their craft is evident in every shot.
