“We can only talk about John in superlatives and he comes with the highest of recommendations.  John’s quality of work is astounding, his talent is undeniable, his personality is a pleasure, and his ability to capture an event is simply awe-inspiring.  Thank you, John, for being a remarkable storyteller.  Our memories were in good hands with you and we can’t thank you enough for capturing so many happy moments and delivering such beautiful images of our special day.”

“Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you have done–first at the engagement shoot, then with the sign-in book, and now the rehearsal dinner and our wedding.  It has been a pure joy to work with you throughout this journey–thank you for not only your skill with the camera, but for your kindness, your sense of humor, and enduring flexibility and patience.  You are amazing!”

“Simply put, we loved having John as our wedding photographer.   First of all, he’s been incredibly responsive from the time I first contacted him through today, well after our wedding.  Having never shot our venue before, he took the initiative to go scope it out and talk to the site coordinator on his own before the wedding.  On our wedding day and the day after, he was so fun and patient with us that we felt totally relaxed and comfortable during our various photo shoots.  On top of how much we liked actually working with him his photography is beautiful and his style is unique.  We couldn’t be happier with our choice!”

“John was the best photographer we could have had for our wedding.  Not only is he the nicest guy but his work is absolutely amazing.  John made us feel really comfortable about hiring someone we had never met and living on the other side of the ocean.  Despite not knowing a single word of Portuguese, he managed to get along with everybody and became a part of the whole celebration.  And the day after the wedding we had the funniest photo session ever!  We love every single photo.  You’re the best, John.  Come visit us whenever you want.”

“John was truly amazing to work with! He really took the time to get to know our personalities and our vision of a perfect wedding day. The reflection of that amazing day is perfectly illustrated in our photos. John was able to capture the smallest of details to the largest of personalities and moments without ever being in the way or interfering. We especially loved the fact that we could give him the creative control on our wedding day and he effectively captured everything we could have ever dreamed of! John is a true professional whose creativity and vision are awe inspiring. We’ve recommended John to numerous friends and all of them sing the same praise.”

“John was wonderful to work with from he very beginning.  He helped us put together our wedding-day timeline to maximize the quality of photos we hoped to achieve.  He went over various lighting pro’s and con’s for portraits, and helped us decide if we wanted to do a “first look” or not.  On our wedding day, John and his second shooter were very professional and easy to work with.  They made our wedding party feel very comfortable and relaxed, which helped in them producing such amazing images.  We were very pleased with our wedding photos, and extremely impressed with the quality of our hard copy photo album.  John exceeded our expectations, and captured our day perfectly!”

John has been a wonderful photographer to work with, from the initial meeting to talking through ideas, from seeing his gallery of pictures to the final album of beautiful hand-picked shots of our wedding.  His engagement photo shoot was so relaxing for a couple not used to being in the spotlight and very nervous about doing a photo shoot. He also has an amazing eye for finding locations to shoot at; really bringing out the character of our city but maintaining the focus on us. His assistant at the actual wedding was so much fun for the grooms’ party to shoot with, letting them have fun getting prepped for the celebration but shooting really creative shots of us that had us laughing and having fun the entire time.  We could not have asked for a better photographer to work with for our special occasion.  Thanks, John!

“John Schnack is a dream. His work is the finest in photography and he is the most delightful professional in the business! From our first meeting through all our correspondences, John was on top of everything and always prepared. We decided to work with John from a friend’s recommendation and I can tell you it was the best decision we made for our wedding day. His photos are more than images, they are memories come to life. He captures moments in time that only he has the eye to catch, and that is why we look forward to working with him many more times in the future! John, you are the greatest!”
