Not joshin' ya, he's phenomenal!
I have began writing and rewriting this review more times than I can count. There are no number of words that I can use to describe just how magical our experience was with Josh. Let’s start from the beginning: Josh found me through an #engaged tag on Instagram. He reached out, said he was a traveling photographer, and offered me a stellar deal he was having at the time. Committing to any big chunk of money like that required me to take some time to think about it. After doing some research, deep thinking, and even reaching out to past clients of his, I knew I HAD to have him photograph our big day! Not only was his price unbeatable, but from the information I gathered through others and through his own Instagram page, I knew he was the perfect fit for our outdoor fall wedding.
After booking Josh, we continued our communication through social media. I felt like I had known him forever and that I was talking to a friend, not a vendor. Fast forward to the day of our wedding…Josh arrived at the wedding site (my brother’s house in the country) before my husband, Dan, and I got there (I’m ALWAYS late). Josh and my brother hit it off, and he immediately began photographing the décor and the wedding venue. When we arrived, the first thing I noticed was his easy-going personality and of course, his stylist outfit! I was not sure if it would be awkward meeting a social media buddy, but when I said I felt like I have known him my whole life, I meant it.
Josh’s professionalism was unmatched. He photographed Dan and me getting dressed, and even helped pin on Dan’s and my stepson, Aiden’s, boutonnieres. It was obvious this was not his first nuptial rodeo. He helped me plan my first-look shoot with Aiden, and even though it was in a small bedroom, it was perfect!
I was really nervous how Dan would handle the hundreds of photos we would take because he can usually last about three before he is tired and the smile subsides. I was amazed at how comfortable he was in front of Josh! He never fussed moving into different poses, and Josh kept up laughing the whole time! Might I add that Josh even climbed a tree IN BLACK PLATFORM LEATHER BOOTS to get some gorgeous aerial view pictures! Now, that’s dedication!
I really cannot say enough about how phenomenal Josh’s services were, and the fact that he walks with the Lord just makes him that much better! Before he left for his couple-hour drive to his parent’s that night, we had a conversation that I’ll never forget. He explained why he calls his business Captivate Photography, and how he feels captivated by God and wants to share his love for God and capture captivating moments with others. This was one of the most pure and genuine moments I have ever shared with someone, especially someone I barely knew.
I could go on and on (and in some respects, I have) about how pleased we were to have had such an extraordinarily talented and authentic photographer capture the raw, heartfelt moments of the most special day of our lives. Josh was a stranger in the beginning but left as an honorary member of our family. His work left me absolutely speechless and filled my heart with overwhelming joy! If you look at any of his work, you’ll see, the pictures speak for themselves! And of course, I must add that Josh snuck a piece of hydrangea from where we said our vows and sent them to us in a picture frame with our wedding date written in as a wedding gift! Josh is that type of guy that goes above and beyond to make your day the most memorable it can be and makes you an even better person for simply knowing him.Sent on 04/05/2021

Amazing quality, worth every penny
I am convinced that Joshua Scott is a photography wizard. He keeps the mood light with music and conversation, making sure everyone is comfortable. I’ve been doing sessions with Josh since i was a freshman in college, and had the honor of having him as the photographer at my wedding. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone looking to capture all the important moments of their big day.Sent on 03/19/2021

Like many other couples our wedding was not as planned due to Covid 19. But through it all Josh was an incredible photographer! I had gotten Covid two weeks before our wedding so we had to cancel the Big Celebration but still got married this past October! Josh was so eager to help us in anyway possible and we just took our wedding photos about three weeks ago!
He was an incredible energetic photographer and really made the session feel natural and brought back all the feelings we had and more on our wedding day!
I would 1000% recommend him to anyone for any kinds of photos you are looking for!Sent on 06/01/2021

Josh is amazing!
Josh is absolutely amazing!! We booked him to be our wedding photographer and I could not be happier. He takes the time to explain his vision to you and is genuinely so excited to be with you. His excitement made me feel more excited and comfortable. He also got our engagement pictures to us the same day that we took them!! I would highly recommend Josh. It is the best and easiest decision you will ever have to make for your wedding. Our guests and bridal party loved him just as much as we did! Don't miss out on using him for your wedding!Sent on 03/22/2021

exceptional photographer who goes above and beyond.
josh photographed our wedding and so quickly delivered the most beautiful photos that i couldn’t be happier with. the photos he captures transforms an ordinary location into something out of a magazine. his passion for photography shines through his creative ideas and beautiful editing skills. if you think you may be awkward during a professional photo shoot, josh is the photographer for you because he communicates the poses he is envisioning in a way that is so natural and fun, all while making you feel comfortable and confident. he gets just as excited for the shoot as you are and literally hypes you up so much and makes the experience so fun and so memorable. he has amazing energy and is so relatable and personal, becoming an instant friend. our package included a complimentary engagement shoot which made our wedding day run so smoothly because of the trust we established. josh also was diligent throughout the event with helping us stick to our timeline and he made sure we got every shot we wanted. something special about josh is that he is always ready to jump in and help when something goes awry during the event. i will never forget how we forgot the speaker to play ceremony music for our elopement and josh ran right away to go get his wireless speaker that he had nearby. he just truly cares for you, your event, and making it run as smoothly as possible by helping in any way he can. he is exceptional at his art and running his own small business. i truly couldn’t recommend anyone better to capture your special moments!!Sent on 03/21/2021

You will not regret hiring josh!
Not only is Josh an amazing photographer, he is an even better person! Please know that if you hire Josh, you will be getting more than money can buy! He is a sincere and genuine person who takes pride in his work and loves those that he’s working with. He helped my husband and I so much during the pandemic when our wedding was such an uncertainty. He was calm, rational, patient, understanding, and optimistic. Not to mention his photoshoots are so fun and the pictures capture real joy and lasting memories. Both shoots we’ve had with him involved not just great pictures, but great memories we will have forever. He sets the tone with his outgoing personality and makes everything super chill. We love him! Highly recommended! You won’t be disappointed!Sent on 06/10/2021

So prepared and went above and beyond!
Josh was the photographer for my wedding and I was so impressed and pleased with the way the pictures turned out! Josh talked with me in advance to get an idea of what I wanted, had a schedule set for the day so I wouldn’t have to worry about anything, and was extremely thorough and professional. He was very comfortable to work with and had such an energetic and positive personality which was a perfect fit for our day! He acted quick on his fit when there were some time circumstances and he immediately found a great spot to take first look pictures. Josh captured so many beautiful moments from the day and I would absolutely recommend him for any event that you want to remember completely!Sent on 03/22/2021
