Wow, we looked through the photos over the weekend and all we can say is "thank you" and "wow" over and over again. Your ability to be seemingly omnipresent and capture the moments that really made our wedding so special was clearly seen in all the photos. We can't count how many times we said to ourselves, "I'm so glad John was the guy to do this" and "we need to see John again!" during our photo-viewing session!

There is really something very unique and special in the way you can capture the moments that will resonate in the hearts of others, and we're just happy that there is someone like you out there acting as that source of joy for so many fortunate people.

Thank you again, John, for simply being you. You provided us with the gifts and talents that make your work so special on our wedding day, and for that, we're truly grateful.

John photographed our wedding in September 2017. He was personable, respectful and talented from start to finish. We felt special and cared for in every interaction. His talent speaks for itself – absolutely breathtaking photos that make me want to run out and do it all over again! It rained on our day and he wasn’t fussed at all and he took extra care to make sure we were comfortable. Highly recommend and would book you again in a heartbeat. Thank you John!

Jen & Hilary
