We deeply regret hiring JMK photography for our wedding. So many details and special moments were missed throughout the day. The only picture of our cake is out of focus, there are several guests that aren’t in a single picture (I specifically requested photos of guests), tons of reception details weren’t photographed, and overall, we’re really disappointed with several of the photos we ended up with. The lack of attention to detail in our pictures blows my mind (compared to Wayne’s other work). We paid extra for a second photographer and she was nice but judging by the quality of her pictures, very inexperienced. Every picture she took is grainy. There are several gaps in photos where we’re not sure where the photographers were and why they weren’t taking pictures. Wayne arrived early, but then when it was the designated time for our getting ready pictures, we had to wait because both photographers were grabbing lunch. Wayne told us he would scope out a second location for pictures prior to the wedding and he didn’t. We sat and waited while he looked for a good location on the day of. Wayne is obviously a highly reviewed and talented photographer. After looking through several complete wedding sets and comparing our gallery to other wedding galleries that were posted with ours, we can’t understand what happened on our wedding day (we LOVED the other pictures we saw of his work). Maybe the effort wasn’t put in since we didn’t want our wedding submitted to blogs/magazines. Either way, I’m crushed that we spent over $3000 and don’t have better picture memories of our special day. I hope this review will spare someone else the same disappointment. If you are looking for a photographer with integrity, who will capture all of the little details of your special day, communicate in a timely fashion, and provide services equal to what they charge; Wayne may or may not be your guy. He certainly made our day memorable for all the wrong reasons.

JMK Photography did my daughters engagement and wedding photos. The pictures are so amazing. There was a great mix of fun and serious pictures. He was wonderful getting the 2 year old sign barer and 5 year old flower girl to pose - you should see the pictures, they are perfect!

Wayne is such a nice man, easy to talk to and fun to be around. Not once did I feel like he was in the way, yet he didn't miss anything! I totally and completely recommend him - you will not be sorry!

There are no real words to explain how amazing Wayne was. I was initially very worried about finding a photographer because I live in Colorado and the wedding was in Whitefish MT. I was also scared to just look at portfolios of photographers because my sister in law choose a photographer for her wedding that showed beautiful work. Yet, when she finally received her wedding pictures she cried because they were so bad.
I started my search by looking at photographers portfolios and narrow it to three photographers. Then I called each photographer. Wayne was upbeat and answered all my questions. When I expressed my concerns he was able to show empathy and he walked me through his process. He even created a custom package for us. During the big day Wayne was with us every step of the way and I didn't even know it! When we were taking posed pictures he made sure that we had fun with the process and let us be us. ( I could also tell that he loves his work). I also loved how he asked me what was important to me. He was so much fun to work with and only enhanced our day. By the end of it I felt like he was a long lost uncle.
Then I got my pictures! There isn't one bad picture in thousands of pictures he captured. Not only was he able to get those little special moments but he also got all the details of the wedding such as decorations, dress/shoes, ect. None of the people pictures had weird stuff - like a light growing out of a head. All of the pictures of items were tastefully arrange. When I showed my pictures off a lot of people asked if they were out of a magazine. That's how good Wayne is! And to top it all off he is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He was worth every penny and I would do it all over again. I can't put a price on what he was able to capture for us. If I ever have a renewal of vows or special event that needs a photographer I won’t even look around, I'll just call Wayne.

Loved everything about Wayne and his work. First of all, my husband and I met with him a couple days before to discuss ideas and themes we may want. He had such amazing creativity and was very open to the pictures we wanted to try. We also laughed as we came up with some fun ideas which have been a big hit with our friends and family.
As we were getting ready, Wayne was very professional (and patient) capturing all of the fun and exciting moments to the emotional ones.
Our wedding was in Whitefish in January and Wayne braved the cold and snow, crawling through it at times for low angle photos!
He does such an amazing job with lighting and angles that every picture is a keeper!
Wayne is also a very kind person. The power went out in Whitefish, knocking out the music at our reception. Wayne was kind enough to take the batteries from his gear and lend them to the DJ to get the party going again.
We would recommend Wayne and JMK Photography for any of your photo needs!!
Thank you Wayne!

We hired JMK Photography for our Montana Destination Wedding this past August just based on his outstanding Photos we saw. Wayne took the time to meet with us and show us several Wedding Albums and answer all of our questions. His photos alone were a no brainer as to why we wanted to hire him, but his personality is amazing too. He was so much fun to work with and very flexible on all of our wants and needs. He did an amazing job with our photos and got them back to us within a month, which was exceptionally fast and we were so pleased with our Photos. We Highly Recommend JMK Photography. You will be most happy with him and his beautiful eye for photography.

Wayne is AWESOME! We had a very simple wedding in Glacier National Park with our immediate families, and he blended in so seamlessly. With such a small group, you'd think it would be easy to get distracted with someone walking around trying to get amazing shots, but that was not the case at all! He was so easygoing, professional, and was full of amazing ideas and worked so well with everyone. Months later, our families still talk about how wonderful it was to meet and work with Wayne! (He also takes amazingly beautiful pictures - our friends and family back home were floored when they saw ours!)

In addition to working with him in person, my husband and I had a positive experience planning with Wayne over the phone and in email, as we live in Minnesota and were planning things long-distance. We also learned quickly that he knows everyone and everyone knows him - he is well-respected in the area! If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional, easy-to-work-with photographer (especially if your event is in Glacier National Park), I would absolutely recommend JMK Photography. I wish we lived closer so we could work with him more often!!
