Nobody compares

You couldn’t pick a better photography team. They were willing to take our engagement photos anywhere we wanted even though it was 100 degrees. Then we did the bridal session and they were amazing and making me feel beautiful and comfortable and spent time just photographing me in my dress. On the wedding day, they were there the whole time and never missed a photo opportunity. Having both of them was the best decision I made since I had two photographers covering our special day.

Top Notch hands down

Without a doubt they are the best of the best. Not only did we discover great photographers we made new friends. From the first time talking over zoom ( thank you Covid) all the way to the get together at the end, it was flawless and stress free. You can tell this is their specialty, it just flows. I asked them their favorite place to photograph thinking they would say Woodward Park, downtown Tulsa, you know something local, NOPE…. Iceland. Mic drop! They did a fantastic job with my daughters bridal shoot and engagement session even though it was 652 degrees outside. But you know the pictures didn’t show it and they didn’t seem to care. I would choose them again and again, oh wait… we did for family pictures this spring. Choose the Stapletons for your wedding, you won’t be sorry. 😊

Dream team!

We love Heather + John! They are the absolute dream photography team!
They took our engagement photos (complimentary), photographed our small park wedding, photographed our traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony, our dress rehearsal, and our destination wedding in Cancun!
They are both the sweetest, kindest couple that we were so fortunate to have for our big day(s)! They were very accommodating for our engagement photos, we wanted to incorporate our fur children and they were very open to our ideas. Our save the dates were such a dream, thanks to them!
For our small park wedding that we had prior to our destination wedding, we called them up last minute (I believe it was within the week) and they graciously took our photos in the freezing cold! The photos turned out white, bright and creamy and they are some of my favorites!
Our tea ceremony was in Cancun, and they were able to get all the shots of our intimate family tradition. And our big day, they were with us well over 8 hours! From start to finish, they captured everything beautifully. I LOVED all the candid shots, I have them framed up in our home! They even stayed for our private last dance together, and were able to capture these precious moments!
Our friends even commented on how kind John and Heather were! Heather took the time to remember everyone's names (we had a huge party of 18 bridesmaids and groomsmen), and how she remembered, I am in still in awe! They were both also accommodating to my good side - which I am very grateful for! :) John and Heather also ALWAYS get me my photos back within the week - my wedding was maybe 2-3 weeks, which is honestly UNHEARD OF! They always go above and beyond for our family. We love them!
We honestly could not have had a better duo to work with for such an important time in our lives, and we hope to continue making more memories for them to photograph for us! If you want friendly, hard-working, kind, and personable photographers, I highly recommend!
