With a degree in film, I bring a very cinematic eye to my photography helping to capture the right moment from the best angle. My style of photography may be best described as 'enhanced realism'.

John recently photographed our vow renewal in Carmel. His work is amazing!!! He has a very creative eye, but will also listen to what you want. From the first contact, he was very professional and responsive. I needed to provide proof of insurance and he took care of everything right away. I also made last minute changes to the location a few days before our event, and he was very accommodating. His fees are extremely reasonable, but he doesn’t sacrifice any quality. I cannot say enough about how happy we are with John and our pictures. I will definitely be using him again in the future!

John was very responsive to my last minute request for a family photo shoot in Carmel. His experience with the area was very helpful because he knew the right spots and shots to get so he was very efficient! We got a lot of great pictures and poses in the hour, and am really pleased with the quality of the shots. Totally recommend John for any photography needs you have!

John did an amazing job photographing my proposal. From helping me select a beautiful, secluded location to getting the incredible shots of the event. The pictures turned out great and he got them to us very quickly. He was also very responsive which was reassuring in an otherwise stressful situation. I would highly recommend him for your event.
