Bryan L.

Wedding and Event Photography

John was very easy to work with last minute. We hired him about a week before our wedding and he showed up early the day off and took some really good photos. He has alot of patience with everyone else wanting to take pictures of their own. We got some great photos from him and would recommend him for our friends weddings or events.

Hi Bryan and Amber, Thank you for your kind words. I actually had a blast shooting your wedding. Please remember me to your friends and family who might need a photographer. And let me know if I can make you some prints of the wedding. Regards, John

My friends and I graduated college and we hired John to take pictures of us and our families. His work was fantastic! He was punctual and helpful throughout our session, and the photos are phenomenal. I'd definitely recommend him and consider working with him again in the future.

Actually it was Alex and Erin who were fantastic to work with. Alex planned a perfect surprise proposal and he pulled it off splendidly. Both families were in on the surprise and we did lots of group shots in the park after the proposal. Love to work with this terrific couple again.

Headshot Photography

John was a life saver. He was able to fit me Into his busy schedule on a Sunday afternoon and took several shots of me allowing me to select several options for my headshot. He even was kind enough to take a bonus picture of my new puppy and I would on my deck. His rate was very reasonable, he was personable and professional and I so appreciate his customer responsiveness. Thank you John!

John was great to work with! He was very flexible with our schedule, groups, and deadlines. He captured the players’ expressions and personalities, and even grouped our photos on separate jump drives. His prices are reasonable, and his communication was always clear and prompt. I highly recommend working with John for your photo needs!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I'm very flexible on my pricing, depending on what your photo needs are. I work hard to provide excellent value. I do offer discounts of up to 15 percent for any referrals who sign with me.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I invite the customer to take a look at my web site. If they see photos they like and think we might be a good fit, I encourage them to contact me either on the phone or by email.. During a session I make sure that all customer photo needs are satisfied. After the session I try and give a very quick turnaround for the edited prints, digital media or flash drives.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have close to 40 years as a professional newspaper photographer and have won numerous journalism awards for photography, editing and writing.
