Josh and Danielle did an amazing job with both our engagement and wedding photos! They had great ideas for picture poses and let us chime in with our own ideas at any time. Josh and Danielle are not only a great photo taking team but a great married couple! Having them shoot our wedding felt more comfortable than shooting with two average co-workers. They were able to show us the poses in confidence, which made our photos more comfortable as well. The both of them were a complete joy to work with and I will definitely recommend them to others and will use their services again myself!Sent on 09/09/2013

Josh and Danielle are amazing!! We could not have asked for better photographers. They capture the whole day and as we looked back through our pictures it was like we were able to relive it. They are very flexible and will do whatever you want. We highly recommend Menning Photographic. We will definitely be going back to them for any future pictures that we may need. :)Sent on 09/11/2013

The Mennings are wonderful! They are so easy to work with. They are so nice, sweet, laid back and kind hearted. When it comes to photographs they are very creative. They work hard to make every image absolutely beautiful and they have fun with you while doing it. We could not be happier and more blessed to have these two tell our story.Sent on 08/29/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you very much! You're the sweetest and we couldn't have been more happy to be there with you two on your wedding day! We're so happy to have amazing clients like you! Thank you again!

Both Josh and Danielle were exceptional photographers throughout our entire wedding experience. From the first meeting, to the engagement photos and finally to the wedding day, they were extremely helpful, creative, professional, kind and fun! We absolutely loved working with this happily married couple and enjoyed having them spend our special day with us. One thing that I loved most about their work was the "action" type shooting they do. As every bride knows, the day goes so quickly that by the end, you can barely remember anything that happened. But through their photos, we can relive every moment of our wedding day over and over again. Another great aspect of this type of photography were the posed images that don't appear to be posed. Brock and I would stand and hold each other in natural types of positions even though we were actually mostly put into those positions. Being a married couple, Josh and Danielle were able to demonstrate how to stand, where our hands should go, etc. and then we were able to chat, laugh, and kiss at our discretion, making the photos seem both natural, fun and romantic. If they are available on your wedding day, I strongly encourage you to book them right away!!Sent on 08/29/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you very much! Your wedding was absolutely amazing because you're so in love and you're both wonderful people with loving families. . . we had a great time with you two throughout the whole process and we're so glad to see that your marriage is amazing & we know you'll have a life full of love. Thank you again for sharing your wedding day with us!

Everything went great and Josh and Danielle were perfect. We trusted them with a few details as we became a little time limited and everything came out great. Josh was like an invisible camera ninja. There were times things were going on and I had no idea photographers were even there, or even got certain pictures. We are extremely pleased with how the pictures came out and would definitely consider them again in the future for other needs, such as newborn pictures, etc.Sent on 07/17/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you so much! We had a great time with you two & your wedding day was fun! You're both so friendly, loving, and kind! Thanks again!

We would not change anything. They took amazing pictures and were an amazing couple to work with. They were very easy to work with during the engagement session and at the wedding. They captured the special moments without interupting or having to recreate it. Would recommend them for any occasion.Sent on 08/03/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you, Ashley! We're so happy to hear that you're happy! :) Thanks for sharing your awesome wedding day with us. It was really fun & you two are an amazing couple!

Josh and Danielle are absolutely amazing at what they do. They were extremely helpful throughout the wedding planning process and even helped us with planning that didn't have much, if anything, to do with photography. They are knowledgeable and provided us with suggestions to help our wedding day run smoothly. My stepdaugher, our flower girl, was sick the day of the wedding and we weren't able to get all the pictures and poses we wanted with her but Josh and Danielle took advantage of every second she was feeling photogenic and went with the flow. Our pictures were ready for viewing early and they've been quick to respond to any email or phone call we've sent their way. They even had a slideshow of some of our pictures available at our reception for us, and our guests, to look at!Sent on 03/18/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you very much, Ashley! We are so glad we've gotten to know you. You're a great person & your wedding day was lovely. Thanks again for choosing us to photograph it!

Menning Photographic is an excellent wedding photographer duo, this Husband and Wife team made our wedding day and engagement photograph sessions very fun, comfortable and exciting. Menning Photographic captured what we are as a couple allowing us to be ourselves and capturing our love during the photograph sessions. The end product that they produced exceeded all of our expectations with a blend of modern and classic shots, our friends and family fell in love with the photographs they took and we plan to use Menning Photographic for any and all life moments in the future. My favorite thing about this photographer is that they thought outside of the box while also taking classical photos. They created eye appealing angles, creative natural backgrounds and a unique usage of light that simply make the pictures “pop” when you look at them. If you’re looking for a photographer in the Youngstown, Ohio area you need to check our Menning Photographic, you simply won’t be disappointed with this Photographic team. Thanks again Josh and Danielle for capturing both or engagement session and Wedding Photographs in a way that you two could only do.Sent on 03/18/2013

Josh and Danielle bring great technical knowledge and skill to the art of photography, but more importantly, they set the stage for you to be yourself. Working with photographers who made us at home and comfortable in front of the camera made all the difference. Their professionalism made planning an ease and we feel so lucky to have the beautiful memories of our wedding day captured in their photos!Sent on 03/12/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you very much! We had a great time with you and Pappy on the wedding day and sincerely hope you can look back at your wedding photos fondly for the rest of your lives to live that day over and over again in your memories.

Josh and Danielle were very professional and creative. We received great pictures that captured the beauty of PPG and Phipps Conservatory of Pittsburgh. We loved the pictures and still have to choose our favorites...Sent on 03/09/2013
They were fun and easy going and met with us several times to make sure they found great settings for our wedding pictures. We received some unique photos and were pleased. We received about 600 photos: I wish we would have gotten more since they were great. Their style was what we were looking for... A mixture of traditional and photojournalism. We had a private ceremony at Phipps Conservatory in which 1/3 of our guests came to the ceremony. Gorgeous photos !!!!! PPG before Phipps was picture perfect also. 2/3 of our guests were kicking off the reception, so by the time we arrived at Pavilion X, downtown Pittsburgh, the party was in full swing. It was my mistake not to get pictures before guests arrived.. But Danielle and Josh got as many details of our unique setting as possible. They took pictures if the intricate details that I worked so hard to plan!! They captured the day so well. You will be happy you chose the Mennings! Fabulous couple to work with! Highly recommend!!!
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you very much! We're so thankful for clients like you & getting to know you two was great! You're so generous and thoughtful and we had so much fun with you!

Josh and Danielle are an amazing couple to work with. Our engagement session and wedding with Menning photographic were perfect! Josh and Danielle made each experience comfortable and fun. Being able to be ourselves made the photo taking experience so much easier! They captured so many photos that we wanted and added several of their own poses and ideas that made our photo collect complete. They were flexible and willing to work with any ideas or changes that we thought of last minute. Our photos from our wedding are something that we will cherish forever. They are all beautiful and make our wedding memories come to life!Sent on 10/22/2016
Thank you both for such a special experience! :)
Menning Photographic's reply:Hi Stephanie! Thank you so much for this kind review! We really appreciate it & YOU! We're so thankful for amazing clients like you & had a great time getting to know you guys. We wish you the very best in your lifelong & happy marriage!
Suzie · Married on 11/03/2012
We found Josh & Danielle through facebook. Some of our mutual friends used them for their wedding and we were impressed with the pictures and the price was reasonable. They are very flexible and professional. We weren't interested in an engagement session and they adjusted our package accordingly. For just starting out in the profession, they did well with creative poses and was very helpful that they were also married so they can show us a pose and we could easily emulate. I received so many compliments on their work ethic and friendliness. They captured all the moments we wanted and more! They also went out of their way to create a photo timeline- above and beyond!Sent on 03/11/2013
Menning Photographic's reply:Thank you so much! We're so glad we got to photograph your wedding day. It was beautiful & we know your marriage is going to be amazing. Thanks again!

I met with Menning Photographic on February 10th, 2015 to make arrangements for photographing my daughter's October 8th, 2016 wedding. That same day, my daughter signed the "Wedding Photography Contract" and within a couple days we paid the required $1000.00 retainer. Unfortunately, less that a month after that meeting (and more than a year and a half until the wedding date), my daughter and her fiancee cancelled their engagement. Menning Photographic was contacted immediately, but declined to refund any of the $1000.00, even if another couple were to book that same date. Menning also said we could not use the $1000.00 towards some other services, such as family photographs. Of course, we all hope and think, when we are making arrangements for the wedding of our children, that nothing is going to happen between the date the services are booked and the date of the wedding, but reality is sometimes different. Businesses like Menning Photographic clearly take advantage of this fact.Sent on 03/22/2015
Menning Photographic's reply:To any potential clients reading this one unfortunate review amongst the many very positive reviews from clients with whom we have worked, please know that we are saddened when anyone has to endure such an unfortunate event as the cancellation of a wedding date. We understand that would be incredibly heartbreaking to endure. However, we are also proud of the fact that we operate our business in a professional fashion with a written contract that clearly spells out the outcome in the case of a cancellation. Written wedding photography contracts protect both the client and the photographer & we are proud to say that we operate our business professionally by signing a contract with every couple. This protects the couple in that we reserve their date many months in advance and cannot accept any other inquiries for that date. This also protects our business (our livelihood that provides for our family) in that should the couple cancel their wedding, the retainer is nonrefundable. To anyone planning a wedding and searching for potential wedding photographers, we advise you to do business with only those photographers who will sign a written contract that clearly delineates the potential outcomes with regard to postponements or cancellations; this protects you and gives you confidence that their business is legitimate and that they will stand by the contract and be there for you on your wedding day.
