Introduction: I've always loved photography. I viewed it as a passion, not a job. That was until I married the love of my life last year. We were going through all the insanity that goes into planning a wedding and I was put in charge of finding a wedding photographer. Not only did they have to be talented, but they also had to be an affordable wedding photographer. The words "affordable wedding photographer" are rarely found in the same sentence and when they are the company's idea of what an affordable wedding photographer is, is vastly different from mine. I'm middle class, born and raised. The thought of shelling out $3,000+ for someone to take photos blew my mind. It made me sick that event photographers would happily charge someone that much money just because higher prices are expected for weddings. Why was there no one out there who offered truly an affordable wedding photography? As I looked around on different photography websites hoping to find a local photographer within our budget I continued to become blown away by astronomical prices. Why was it impossible to find an affordable photographer? I found someone who did birthday photography and wanted $800 for two hours! It that Steven Speilberg behind the camera? The list went on and on and on.Engagement photographer, $1,000. Graduation photographer, $500. Headshots, $400. It was insane. I started John R Photo to give people who are in need of high-quality professional photos, but who don't want to spend more than a weeks pay to get them. Don't let my prices fool you, I know what I'm doing and my work will speak for itself. I'm not here to rob you of your hard earned money to get the wedding photos you want.  Let me help you capture those special moments.

Wedding and Event Photography

John did a last minute photo shoot for my Dad’s 80th birthday party. He was quick to respond and a great communicator throughout the process. He was professional during the event and interacted well with guests while staying in the background. He did a great job at capturing all the special moments. He had the high quality, creative images to me within a few hours after the event. Highly recommend John!!

John R Photo is an amazing photographer, and his display of professionalism and customer service are top-notched. He was fun, personable, accommodating, and easy to work with. The dancers were thrilled with the creativity that he exhibited during their photo shoot. We were very happy with the photos and hope to work with him again next year. I highly recommend John!

John was a great choice from the beginning. He would respond in seconds to any questions I had and was flexible with any elements of the photoshoot. And best of all, he is a PHENOMENAL photographer and really passionate about what he does. HIGHLY recommend. :-)

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

    I want to work within your budget. Let me know exactly what you're looking for and I'll let you know if it's something I can make work. I'm not a huge company with massive overhead. It's just my assistant and I, so let's figure out what makes sense for you and take it from there.

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

    Introduction and project outline with budget information. Exchange phone numbers and do an over the phone consultation. I want to make sure I can give you want you want! Job date and time. Photos delivered digitally within 48-72 hours. Physical album delivery time will vary project to project.

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

    I've professionally shot some of the largest music festivals and artists in the world. From Bonnaroo, to Okeechobee Fest and Forecastle. Huge name musicians like Snoop Dogg, Arcade Fire, The Lumineers and Modest Mouse have trusted me enough behind the camera to take their photos since 2016. I've been honored to have photographed over a dozen engagements and weddings in 2018.
