You and your wedding deserve more than just great photographs.
You deserve a wedding photographer who will take the time to get to know you. Someone who will establish trust and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.
Someone who recognizes the importance of your images in the years to come, and works with you to help preserve your gorgeous photos for generations.

Countries I've photographed weddings
Hey there, I'm John.
Going out on a limb here, but I'd say you've probably seen dozens of wedding photographer websites at this point. It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the different photography styles and packages.
Obviously you want amazing photos of every aspect of your wedding, moments large and small. But at the end of the day…
You deserve not only amazing photos, but an experience you'll never forget.
Trust me, you can have your cake and eat it, too!
“Next level! John was everything we hoped for in a wedding photographer.”
Amanda + Jamie : La Jolla, CA
20+ years and nearly 400 weddings ago, I was in your shoes.
And that's why I started photographing weddings.
I know how hard it is to find the right photographer–I've been there! You need someone with the technical skill to adjust to constantly changing environments, the artistic taste to bring your vision to life, and the personal attention you and your wedding deserve.
With the right photographer by your side–someone who can help plan your engagement session, be a trusted partner on your wedding day, and help transform your photos into family heirlooms–your wedding can go from great to above and beyond.
“We instantly felt comfortable around his easy-going nature. John captured every emotion and expression we were feeling in that exact moment.”

Four Pillars for timeless Wedding Photos
Capturing Candid Moments
Unless you're a professional model, being in front of the camera is super awkward! My relaxed, natural posing style helps make you comfortable so your images show your true selves!
For every big event at your wedding, there are a thousand little flashes in time that tell the true story of your amazing day. These are often the most powerful wedding photos and they're the types of images you'll cherish forever.
What good are all those amazing pictures if you can't enjoy them easily? I love walking couples through the album-building process, from designing the layouts to choosing the right cover materials.
Whether it's the subtle pastels of your floral arrangements or the vibrant colors of your sunset stroll, your wedding photos will withstand the test of time.
“John provided an extremely professional yet down to earth experience from the initial consultation to the final print of our album. We couldn't be happier!!!”
