Aida + Michael | The Prado at Balboa Park
"John is an amazing photographer! He photographed our engagement session as well as our big day. I cannot recommend him enough. I reached out to him through his website and he emailed us right away to schedule a telephone conference. Everything (payments, pictures, etc.) is done through his website/honeybook—when planning a wedding and trying to keep track of a lot of different payments, it makes life so much easier. John is truly an artist and is extremely professional. We received our wedding pictures in 10 DAYS!! They are all so beautiful. Family and friends keep saying how amazing our photos are; that they “belong in a magazine.” They truly do. Thank you John!!"
Matt and Chase | Hotel Del Coronado
"We hired John after he was recommended by our wedding planner. From start to finish he was friendly, attentive, and very responsive. He replied to all my questions promptly, tailored the shoots to our vision, his website works PERFECTLY (payments, photos, everything was easy and quick), and he was lighting fast with both the engagement and wedding photos. Our wedding seemed to go by so fast, the very next day it just seemed like a happy blur. When I got the pictures, I spent HOURS laughing, crying, and truly enjoying more moments from the wedding than I'd been able to do on the actual day. He did a BEAUTIFUL job, and the memories he captured have added so much to our special day for me. I cannot recommend him highly enough!."
Erin + Andrew | The Darlington House
"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. On our wedding day, John and his second shooter were very professional and easy to work with. John exceeded our expectations, and captured our day perfectly!"
Libby + Ravi | Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel
"Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you have done--first at the engagement shoot, then with the sign-in book, 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!"
Melissa + Brendan | The Crosby Club
"We can only talk about John in superlatives. 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."
Courtney + Chris | Lake Almanor, CA
"John was truly amazing to work with! 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!"
Teresa + Joáo | Lisbon, Portugal
"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."
