Until we met JB Reed the hardest part of planning our wedding was finding a photographer that understood and shared our vision. Aside from a few family and friend portraits we wanted the photographer to take a photojournalist approach to the event. JB did exactly what we wanted and the results far exceeded our expectations. He and his assistant have an impeccable eye and were able to beautifully capture moments that passed in a fraction of a second. We think every picture he took is amazing and are looking forward to using him at future events.

After interviewing nearly 10 photographers we finally found what we were looking for in JB. He impressed us immediately with his calm attentiveness as we described the vision we had for our wedding. As the initial meeting went on it was clear that he absorbed everything we had described and shared our vision. On the wedding day itself JB was everywhere and worked relentlessly to capture every moment during the long day. We knew if his photos were half as good as his effort we would be happy, and we were not disappointed. The photos were fabulous and captured everything, even moments when we didn't even know he was watching which were some of our favorite photos!!! We were delighted with the pics and JB is fantastic guy and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended for any couple that wants a talented, cool, and professional photographer!!

JB was fantastic, and I couldn't recommend him more. My wife and I met with JB, loved his work, really gelled with him, and wanted to hire him as the main photographer at our wedding. However, because of a previous engagement, he was unable to shoot our date. When his schedule opened up just a month before our wedding, we reaped the benefits. My wife and I had to bring him on. We entrusted JB with a photobooth we wanted. I very simply told him what I was looking for in one email, and I never had to worry about it again. I saw him once before the ceremony and he told me he was ready. When we got to the reception, it went off without a hitch. He had taken care of everything I asked for. Photobooths aren't exactly the newest wedding idea, but having JB there, with his personality, really upped the fun and the quality. He got people at our wedding to open up. He was suggesting photo ideas, and on top of it all, the pictures came out great. JB was emailing me before I could get back from my honeymoon. One more thing to mention: I forgot the checks to pay vendors the day of the ceremony, and was freaking out before the ceremony. JB did not stress for a second, and told me not to worry about it. I'm certainly not suggesting you forget your checks, but I think it speaks to the type of person JB is that he didn't make me worry that evening. And lastly, I am a man who violently believes in consumer advocacy. Shoppers need to take care of each other. I am writing this so people considering JB Reed know the high quality and efficiency they should expect and will receive if they contract him. Neil

My husband and I felt photography was the most important aspect of our wedding. We met with tons of photographers, spent countless hours looking at wedding photography online and both knew the moment we saw JB's work, he was at the top of our list. In our free time we sat down, looked at each of his photos and discussed them at length. We were BIG fans, and just hoped the chemistry would be right when we met JB. On a Sunday morning we caught up with him at a diner, and it was like sitting down with an old friend...except we were gushing over how much we loved his work. We knew immediately we wanted to book him, but to our disappointment, he had another commitment on our wedding day. This didn't stop him from helping us out by providing recommendations for other photographers he worked with and respected. We ended up booking one of his colleagues. About a month before our wedding, JB reached out saying his commitment fell through and he would be available for our wedding date. Both my husband and I jumped at the chance to have JB's artistic eye at our wedding. Although we had booked our main photographer, we asked JB to photograph our "photobooth." And we are so glad we did. Everyone raved about JB and the photobooth. He was able to get guests to open up, be silly and feel comfortable in front of the camera. We have photos of parents, aunts, uncles and friends that are so much fun...I had no idea these guests would be as playful as they were. And it was all thanks to JB and his warm, convivial personality. His professionalism, personality and creativity make him a real find. JB is a true artist and anyone would be fortunate to have him contribute to their big day. Krista

JB was the lead photographer for our wedding in 2009 and we highly recommend him. We had determined we were looking for the photojournalistic style that JB does so well and had liked what we saw of his portfolio. The work he did at our wedding did not disappoint - he captured terrific shots. Our other important criteria was that we did not want a lot of posed photos and staged group shots; we wanted him to capture the event without imposing the photographer into the event. JB worked easily with this and captured our special moments in photos that we, our family and friends all love. The process with JB was seamless. We had an initial meeting where everything was clearly explained, and he was able to offer advice and arrange for a second shooter for us. The day of the wedding, JB's easy personality and unobtrusive style set us both at ease and surely helped the photos as well. JB maintained good communication following the wedding and the photos were delivered timely as promised.

My husband and I really, really loved JB and were so happy he shot our wedding. We were both very skittish about hiring a photographer and had considered not doing it at all and just asking our friends to take photos. But my sister-in-law convinced us we were idiots and found JB for us, and we were so glad. He was thoroughly professional throughout: kind, unobtrusive, responsive to what we wanted, curious about us, and really invested in taking photos that we'd want to keep forever. Again, we both felt a bit self-conscious about having our portraits taken but he put us at ease and got some amazing photos out of us that I really treasure. And the photojournalism shots, especially the ones of the ketubah signing and of the reception, are just beautiful, on a very high level. It helped that he's just very relaxed and easy to get along with -- he felt more like a guest than like "the photographer." We were so pleased with the experience and with the photos and really can't recommend him highly enough.

JB was incredible from the start! We only had a few months to plan our wedding, but JB was available for all the phone meetings, photo lists, etc. He was extremely attentive to what we envisioned for the wedding weekend, and remembered specific things we'd shared with him throughout the process. During the entirety of the wedding weekend, he was present at everything without causing us to feel like we were under the constant gleam of the camera lens. He was calm, cool and collected, and really made us feel comfortable and relaxed. He spent time in between events scouting new photo locations, coming up with creative ideas, and asking our input throughout. We had so much fun with him, and were so excited to finally see all of our photos! We couldn't recommend him more!!

We were lucky enough to have JB shoot our rehearsal dinner. He did an amazing job and continually surpassed expectations. The pictures are magical, but not in a corny way. The colors pop and he really captured the fun and celebratory feeling of the night. JB was also a blast to work with. He came up with really creative shots for us but was also completely stealth, catching all our family in candid moments without anyone noticing. When it came time to design our album, it was difficult to narrow down which photos to use, as the quality was so high across the board. All of our friends and family have raved about the photos from JB. We couldn't be happier!

JB Reed was a great photographer, providing high quality pictures and very professional manner. He is very approachable, organized, and willing to work with what you want. He's also very patient with the inevitable chaos and frenzy that comes with a wedding event. He's a very experienced wedding photographer and I would recommend him for other weddings!
