    John Bosley did our civil ceremony photographs - he was always very quick to respond, flexible on timing, clear with payment methods and organized/ specific with his responses. John was helpful enough to also share context/experience with how civil ceremony timing normally works in his experience, so we could inform our families of when to arrive -- and John also had experience with where to go within City Hall (even better).

    Overall, the photos came out amazingly well and John was even so kind as to be able to photograph our entire family that was part of our civil ceremony, so now we have amazing family portraits too!! So many birds with one stone -- and the pictures came out beautifully, so natural, AND AMAZINGLY edited with a quick turnaround time. I really couldn't have asked for more.

    We are so thrilled with our decision to choose John for our engagement and wedding photography. He took the time to get to know us as a couple before the engagement shoot, and he did a great job putting us at ease in front of the camera, which paid off in the photos. John has a talent for capturing the light and producing some stunning and natural images. He did a beautiful job with all of our family and bridal party portraits, and we were particularly impressed with the incredible candid moments he captured from the day.

    We were lucky to have snatched John as our wedding photographer when he first moved to San Francisco. He shot our June wedding in the city and our whole experience with him was fantastic. Everytime we look at our photos we are transported back to the best day of our lives and feel all the love and emotion of the day. John creates very clean photos that capture authentic emotion. We were surprised to see the very special, intimate moments he captured and we had no idea he was even there. His photos truly speak volumes and are the kind that stand the test of time. We know they will be treasured for years, and hopefully generations to come. It is evident he is very passionate about what he does and it shines through in his photos.
    On top of that, he is simply a very friendly, easygoing guy. I will never forget on the day of our engagement photo shoot, it was cloudy and drizzly and I was very disappointed and nervous. I thought we would have to cancel, but John was so positive and calming and totally turned the situation around. He scouted out some great light and produced some beautiful photos and it turned out to be a really fun experience together in the San Francisco fog! Come wedding day, John not only was an amazing photographer, but also jumped in as a little bit of "wedding coordinator" too. We were about to leave the hotel room for the church, our true wedding coordinator was nowhere near us, and nerves were running high. I suddenly sprung on him that I had no idea when/where to meet the car to take us to the Church. John immediately got on his phone and took care of the situation. It was handled. We were so lucky to have John around!
    Bottom line- If you want authentic, timeless photos that really capture the relationship and emotions between you and your fiance.... and also someone who will really calm your nerves on your big day- book John Bosley!

    We love John. Everyone at our wedding loved John. He was so friendly and flexible, and made us feel comfortable throughout the whole wedding. He really took charge during the mayhem that was our "family photo session" and made it fun and organized without being demanding. He captured all of our must-haves. and the feel and style we were looking for. (We weren't as interested in posed photos as we were capturing fun moments throughout the day.) He also put us at ease while capturing the more traditional couple pictures after the ceremony. I cannot say enough good things about him! Aside from the beautiful photos, he really worked with us to give us a package that made sense for our wedding budget. I'm so glad that my friend recommended him!

    Our home has been filled with extra smiles, laughs and happy tears as we have re-lived our wedding over and over through John's pictures. John is an amazing photographer, and we are so grateful that he photographed our wedding. His use of light - even in some hard light environments - is exquisite. He did everything we asked and so much more. John, thank you SO much for doing such a great job and for being so fun to work with.

    John is an awesome photographer. We truly enjoyed working with him on our engagement photos and wedding photos. He was easy to work with, and really took the time to get to know us as a couple so as to get the most natural poses from us. My husband and I are very happy with all of our photos, and would recommend John to anyone looking for beautiful photos capturing the happiest days of their lives.

    You will not regret hiring John for your special day. John drove out to South Lake Tahoe to capture our first session with him for our engagement photos. He went above and beyond to make sure he captured the love between us. My (now) husband works A LOT and leading up to our session, we had not really had time to truly connect. John was able to talk with us as we began our session and challenged us to pause and really take a moment to be fully present with one another, to think about the love we give and receive and all of the reasons why we were even standing there that day. I cannot even tell you what that did for us. He literally made me cry! ( in a good way) . When we saw the finished product of our session, I was SOOOO happy with the pictures. He has such a creative eye , he used the elements of our beautiful surroundings and we have pictures that take our breath away. We felt completely comfortable with him. For the wedding, he couldn't have been more supportive. He, again, went above and beyond. On a very stressful day, he saw that I was a bit frazzled and he stopped to check in to see if I needed anything to eat or drink. He helped organize the flow of the entire event, as if he was my wedding planner. He even offered to help us set up! I felt like he was more of my wedding guest than a hired service. The photographs he captured told the story of our family, our love and our life. We have some of the most beautiful images now to cherish for a lifetime. I get tons of compliments on his work and I am always looking for opportunities to recommend John to anyone getting married. He made our day truly special and I can't wait to personally find another reason to hire him! Thank you John for your flawless service! From beginning to end, you were kind, honest, thorough and a true professional.

    We couldn't have imagined having any other photographer for our wedding and engagement photos! John has such an amazing eye for beauty and catching the most beautiful moments. There are truly no words to explain how wonderful John was to work with. Hands down, without a doubt we would hire him all over again. Thank you John for capturing our day in a way we know no other photographer could have!

    John Bosely did a fabulous job with our engagement and wedding photos. We really enjoyed our engagement photo session because it allowed us to get used to being in front of the camera. On wedding day, I could rest assured that he was going to get great photos and I didn't have to worry about making sure we got the best shots. Our wedding photos came out even better than I could have imagined, and we received many compliments on the photos from our friends and family.

    We could not have asked for a better photographer than John Bosley. From the moment we hired him I felt at complete ease knowing my wedding would be properly documented and we would have photos we could cherish for our lifetime. He is not only a talented photographer but he is reliable, fast to respond, professional and a pleasure to be around. One of the most important things to us was that we had a photographer who wasn't afraid to get those shots we wanted and who interacted with our guests. He didn't disappoint and when we got back our photos, there isn't a thing he missed! He was flexible with our schedule and made an effort to get to know me and my finance, our style and what we wanted. You can't go wrong hiring John!

    We really enjoyed working with John for our engagement and wedding photos in Boulder! His high degree of professionalism and positive attitude made him great to work with and kept us relaxed and at ease during the shoots. He had great ideas for shots and we couldn't have been happier with how all our photos turned out!

    I have used John a few times now and I can't say enough about him. I had professional photos taken with him, as well as my engagement photos, and wedding photos. In every situation the photos turned out amazing. He not only makes the process fun, but truly takes the time to learn about you and adapts the photographs to you individually or as a couple. For our engagement session, I had described what I had in mind and he found the perfect location. Even though it was a few hours away, he insisted making a day of it. He gave us an experience that we will always remember, not just the photographs. Thank you John!

    Here’s the short version – John is a fantastic photographer and definitely one of our favorite vendors from our wedding!

    My wife and I divided wedding planning duties based on what we cared about most and photography was top of my list in our wedding vendor draft pool. I ended up comparing a lot of photographers across all sorts of dimensions and the packages they offered. I really liked that John offered us plenty of hours so we could do pre-wedding shots to free up time during the event, and the package didn’t require buying an album either.

    John was always really responsive (if only I could say the same about all of our vendors). I can’t remember ever having to chase things down with him through the contract, engagement session, wedding, and final photo delivery.

    John has a great demeanor where he’s always calm through the wedding chaos. We loved the work John did – we have a ton of awesome photos that make it seem like he and his second shooter were everywhere that night. I also really appreciated the personal touch where we got to hang out with John one more time and see all the photos together for the first time. He even gave us small prints of the nicest photos because he knows “young couples don’t always print photos these days, but they’re nice to have.” He was so right! We've now framed several of these small photos because we have yet to print any out for ourselves... we’re slow decorators, but we’ll get there!

    When I heard John was moving to San Francisco, I was a little bummed since I was going to recommend him to any friends getting married in Denver. Wishing him all the best in SF because John is amazing!

    John was our photographer for our 2014 downtown Denver wedding. He was fantastic. Not only did he take amazing pictures, but he was a pleasure to work with. We are so happy that we chose John to capture our big day.
