Top Notch People and Photography!


"... I could not believe the moments they were able to capture in the photos they took. They were always in all the right places at exactly the right times to provide us with spectacular wedding photos throughout the day. Absolutely nothing was missed...Words cannot describe how pleased I was with our photos!!!


Recently.... we had an unexpected flood in our home, and my wedding album was destroyed. I was devastated. JP saved the day though!!!...I called with only a tiny bit of hope that he might still have the files from my wedding stored somewhere (from 11 yrs ago). He did better than that!! With a little digging, he not only had my wedding photo files, he also still had my finished album design stored.



JP's diligence gave me back the album of memories that I thought was lost forever.

I cannot thank you enough. You actually ARE the best!!"

I wanted to personally thank John for our photo session. We thought he was going to take a few snapshots and be done, but the poses, setup and lighting made our pictures so much more than we could have ever expected. John is very professional and knows the right place and right pose and takes some of the highest quality photos I have seen.
