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.

My husband and I got married in June at the Riverview. We knew the moment we met with John that he was going to photograph our wedding! John and Patricia are very talented, professional, and the most honest and sincere people in the industry. From the start, they exceeded our expectations! Our engagement and wedding photographs truly blew us away! There's something to be said about the power of a photograph...and John certainly captured several small and big moments that brought us back to our wedding day. John didn't miss a beat. He captured all the emotions, excitement, and the utter joy we felt on our wedding day. We cannot begin to thank Prestige Barkley enough for their talented work. The best decision we ever made was choosing John and Patricia as our photographers. They're the best and we would highly recommend them!

We hired Prestige/Barkley for our son’s Bar Mitzvah. John did not stop moving throughout the entire event! Guests commented that every time they turned around, he was there... and that he was a pleasure! The photos were phenomenal! He didn’t miss a thing.
Once your photos for the album are selected, Patricia works her magic to artistically design your album. By far the best album I have ever seen!
Now onto planning our second son’s big day...the first vendor we booked-Prestige/Barkley :)
