gratitude.

“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.”

We found John on Instagram and really liked his style of photography: warm, candid, natural. He was the only photographer we consulted; we hired him right away as he immediately felt like a good fit. He kindly made himself available as a resource and happily answered any questions we had. The photography package included an engagement shoot, and John took the time to tailor the location to our personalities and interests, which meant a stop at an ice cream shop in Gastown. It was so much fun, and the photos were perfect! During the wedding rehearsal, he suggested my husband and I walk in together. The combination of John’s experience, attention to detail, and his high emotional intelligence resulted in the perfect entrance. It felt symbolic of our journey and who we are as a couple: companions, partners, teammates. We received our previews the day after the wedding and were overwhelmed by a rush of feelings all over again.

Thank you, John, for making us feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable in front of the camera.

You are a kind soul with an amazing gift, and we are so fortunate we got to work with you.

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!

5 stars without a question. Not just for amazing photos, but for also being an amazing human being. We don’t live in Vancouver so we had the task of finding a photographer that could sense who we were without meeting us in person. Through constant communication and many questions, John made that “human connection”. He helped us find that perfect spot on the ocean.. it was quiet and intimate and we never would have found it on our own. It poured rain the night before yet out of nowhere we received his confident text telling us that the weather was going to hold out the next day…and he was right! That simple text reminded us that we mattered.

Our special day mattered to him. His photography captured our story, full of love, surprise, laughter, tenderness and happy tears and took our hearts into his hands and with remarkable ability.

John captured our deepest most vulnerable moments that forever will allow us to relive that very special day.

John, you are a special person…keep sharing your talent…we will never find the words to show our gratitude. Again, we thank you.

John’s smile says everything. He is calm, professional, and thoughtful.

We felt at ease immediately. We only wanted candid’s for our wedding: Unique, real photos of ourselves, family and friends. John’s photos tell a story of our day. It shows a day filled with love and a whole lot of laughter. He can definitely capture details and moments that you want to remember.
Someone with this much talent should not be as humble as John is. Dealing with him was a breeze and we would recommend him in a heartbeat.

We can’t say enough good things about our experience with him.

Thank you John.
