    This is the 2nd time my Mom took me to Mr Louis. Both times I got pictures that I & everybody really loved. Mr Louis is very interesting and knows how to have you pose for a great shot. We will be going back for more next year. He is cool.

    John takes excellent pictures. However, his studio is in his home, with typical downsides. He was on time and easy to work with and his rates were fair.

    John Louis is the best photographer I've ever been to. He tries many different poses and gets excellent results! I have much of his work framed in my home. Plus the experience of working with Mr Louis is very comfortable & enjoyable. You will feel at ease in his home. His fees are extremely reasonable and affordable as well. He enjoys his work. I highly recommend!!

    I shot with John last week, and it was a great experience. He was super nice and professional. He was funny, and I really enjoyed my shoot.

  • 4/5 stars February 20, 2014

    My shoot with John was both fun and educational. He gave me tips and pose ideas and made me laugh quite a bit... which makes for great photos...a natural smile! My photos came out great and I use a few for my online portfolio. If I lived closer I'm sure we'd do some more photo shoots!

    John is now a good friend , we worked together a lot when I lived in Arizona quite a while back , I enjoyed his passion for vintage styling and classing glamour and fresh clean sharp imagery with a story .

    Good-natured and honest, respectful, artistic-minded photographer. :)

    Was very pleased with my photo shoot with John. Have referred others to him with equally good results. Give him a try.

    Would appreciate a Facebook "like" at "PAMELA CARTER AUTHOR". Support local people like John and me.

    I really enjoy John Louis's work because it is very well done and all the photography and editing is clean and professional. He always makes his models look very put together and classy, and you get exactly what you ask for. The camera and editing software is very high quality so you can be assured that you are getting professional results. I highly recommend his studio!

    John is very easy going, a pleasure to work with and very good at what he does. John also provided the costumes for the photo shoot, which he had designed and they were just gorgeous. I highly recommend his professionalism and excellent quality work and look forward to doing more projects with him in the future.

    I needed a head shot photo and John Louis responded quickly through thumbtack. I was able to schedule an appointment easily, he gave me some attire recommendations and I met him at his house to have the portrait done. He has a photography studio in his home. He seems very thorough and since my session did not take very long, he reduced my price to half his quote when I went to pay. Very good experience. Highly recommend. T.R.

    I've worked with John on several occasions as a makeup artist for his clients. He's a delight to work with, has a light sense of humor and is always professional. John not only knows a great deal about photography, he knows how to pose the subject being photographed for the most flattering angles. He also knows a great deal about pin-up and keeps up to date on what women want. I've seen before and after photos of his clients, and they are amazing. With his knowledge, expertise and use of Photoshop, you can't beat working with John at the prices he offers.

  • 5/5 stars August 12, 2013

    My experience with Mr. Louis was great! It lasted to an hour or hour and a half. He was very patient and his work was outstanding.

  • 5/5 stars June 25, 2013

    We've worked twice now with John Louis for maternity photos. Each session was 1-2 hours, and each time went great! He's very friendly, professional, creative with ideas, and very kind. The photos have come out absolutely amazing each time. I'd definitely recommend him to any moms wanting beautiful maternity photos done!

    John does specialize in photographing women, but he was very willing to do head shots for my son's acting portfolio He did some research into what are good poses and backgrounds to do for headshots.. He was not in a hurry as so many are, he was kind and he was patient. He even let my son play a bit , taking the time to do a few fun and silly poses. Nowell has many options to chose from when he sends out head shots. John provided him with more than 20 options. This is very important today when it helps to customize your headshot to the job. I had other quotes that were close to thousand dollars, John's philosophy is not to over charge but be fair and competitive. I am sure we will use him again to update my son's portfolio.

    John immediately made this older woman (but young at heart!) feel comfortable. His photos brought out both my playfulness and also my womanly side. I liked so many of the photos I had a difficult time narrowing down which was "the best." Definitely recommend this mature photographer. He has a keen eye and a way of bringing out the best in a person. John works hard to provide a quality experience and he delivers.

    My daughter has been working with John for two years. He has captured such beautiful images of her! John specializes in variety. He has photographed my daughter in so many different themes ..from Vintage child to Calvin Klein fashion. My daughter looks forward to seeing John (and Rambo!).
    He is very good with children; my daughter loves him. One word that stands out for me about John's images: ART. He doesn't take simple portraits; he captures his subjects' joy in his images.

  • 5/5 stars November 27, 2012

    We enjoyed working with John very much. He was very kind and easy going. It was a relaxed setting and my daughter enjoyed the session very much, she had fun. We will definitely use John and his "marvelous" photography services again. He really is very nice to work with. John works very quickly to get proofs emailed to you for viewing and even faster to get the final pictures to you. It was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you John for such a nice time and wonderful pictures.
