My wife and I could not have asked for a better photographer to be a part of our wedding. John is nothing but professional, courteous and fun! Our photos came out wonderful and John always made the effort to make sure we were comfortable, without sacrificing his creative vision. I now consider him one of the family and will never forget the great (positive) impact he had on our specia day. Thank you for everything!! -Chris & Jolene

I literally can't think of anything that went wrong! Patricia spoke with us on the phone several times (in additional to our e-mails) during the planning stages and we always felt like whatever idea we had they could make possible. And whenever we needed to reach out to them about something Patricia was always quick to respond. The planning process went so smoothly, and she deserves just as much credit as John because she is an unsung hero of their business. John is just amazing, he really stands out with his professionalism, friendly and jovial nature, and overall being an extremely approachable person. During our reception he always managed to fade in and out so that the flow of the evening was always smooth and nothing was disrupted (that said we still loved whenever he popped up). With our wedding being a late evening event we thought that some outdoor night shots under the full moonlight might have been asking too much, but that didn't stop John from just simply NAILING IT. We received our photos online just last week and we ADORE every single one of them! Our wedding album is still in the works, but if everything else about them is any indication, I know it'll be something to cherish for the rest of our lives! If you use these guys for your wedding or any other family event I guarantee you'll love the work they do!

My husband and I got married at Mystic Seaport's Latitude 41 in October, and we are thrilled we were able to work with Prestige Barkley as our wedding photographer. John was personable, professional, creative, and fun to work with. Patricia was incredibly well organized and easy to communicate with. They created a package for us that completely catered to our needs and budget, making the entire process stress free, and all they did for us went above and beyond what was outlined in our contract.
We were most impressed with John’s hard work and professionalism on the day of our wedding. Not only does he have fantastic vision for his work, but he goes above and beyond in handling every detail of the day – we had last minute threats of inclement weather, changes to our schedule, etc. – and John handled everything with ease. He put more time, effort, and heart into our photos than we ever could have imagined, and we felt as though he was a tremendous support for us throughout the entire day. I was a pretty stressed out bride, but he put me at ease! He was the most valuable of all of the venders we hired, and so many of our guests have commented on how hard working he was and how fabulous the photos are.
We are incredibly happy with the final product of our photos, and recommend Prestige Barkley with complete confidence.
We love working with Prestige/Barkley Photographic design, their amazing work is so detailed and they capture every moment of the couples' special day. The whole staff is wonderful from start to finish!
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. It's always a pleasure to work with them, and their photos of our cakes have been published extensively in dozens and dozens of publications at home and abroad. I'd recommend them to anyone looking to have some lifelong memories captured!
The talent of Prestige Barkley brings a wonderful, creative view to your event. There work is far beyond the stereotype of the wedding photographer. They are pros and will capture the true emotion and magic of your wedding.
