WHY ~ For you

ARTIST STATEMENT | MISSION

It is not only what is photographed, but more importantly how your event is photographed. Our specialty is photographing organically in natural light situations. Shooting with available light evokes mood and allows things to happen more freely. We also use mixed lighting techniques especially in the evening for drama and effect. The only part of your wedding that we direct is the formal photographs of family, friends, and especially the two of you. Even still, our direction is aimed at revealing genuine expressions. Everyone involved in your celebration are all part of the whole that creates a unique experience. We pay attention to all of those who brought you together and strive to show the beauty that is family. We want to make imaginative and engaging images by our consideration and passion for the art that is photography. How we apply our skills and attend to you in so many subtle ways is what makes our photographic services unique.





CONSULTATIONS



Whether through email, phone, or in person, consultations are about allowing you to express your vision, dreams, and expectations. I am happy to get in touch for an initial consultation and if you like, also meet again at your venue. Since I have been married and photograph weddings throughout the year, I know the importance of being available to you. My door is open to address your questions, offer suggestions, and help you orchestrate photography plans with you.



ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

Engagement sessions are one of the best ways to get to know each other. It is a great way to feel at ease so that on your day, you know the familiar face behind the camera. For those especially shy or uncomfortable with being photographed, it is my personal goal to “de-myth” the picture taking process. While I may not be able to make everyone a fan of being photographed, I can make your day a smooth and enjoyable experience!



WHO ~ John Heredia



After moving from Atlanta in 2001, John Heredia spent seven years photographing weddings on the east coast of Florida. Thereafter, he expanded his work throughout the United States and abroad, covering regional weddings and destination weddings in a variety of cities nationally and internationally*. While still in Florida (summer 2007) one of those cities was Madison WI where John met his wife Jennifer on an outward bound flight. What would normally be a huge inconvenience turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The flight was delayed, everyone departed the plane, and John and Jenn spent the entire day together. After a long distance relationship, John moved back to Atlanta and Jennifer headed south from Madison. Together they started enjoying Georgia together. On July 3rd of 2010, John and Jennifer were married. By the fall of that same year, the couple moved to Baltimore MD.



“Having been a groom, I more than ever understand how fun and momentous wedding pictures are. My goal is to take care of the photography for you so that you can enjoy what you do best.



I personally photograph each wedding in tandem with my cultivated associates. To ensure best practices of service and product, I take on a select amount of weddings each year. Based out of Baltimore, Maryland I serve the Mid-Atlantic, the nation, and any location in the world.” ~ John Heredia Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
My special techniques are both in-camera and in post-production, what I call "enhancement". What I offer is a natural realism told as a narrative. Your wedding pictures will be crisp, clear, stylized images.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Traveling to a destination wedding or simply showing up next door always presents a unique lighting situation. Knowing how to see the light and how best to interpret the light is the heart of what I have to offer you. To me it is about making flattery images.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital. I love film and left it only a few year back, so I have been trained to see light without the use of any preview. One of the main reasons I switched to digital was 1) waiting until digital quality was as good as film and 2) the environmental waste that film development & processing creates.
How many photographers do you work with?
Each Collection I offer includes a 2nd shooter. The second photographer is someone who I work with on a regular basis and also understands my approach to shooting. Depending on the event, I may have additional shooters present. Our goal is to give you various perspectives and also a smooth service.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes! I want to personally shoot your celebration! It is also addressed in our agreement.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No! However, I am available to cover an entire weekend event: rehearsal dinner, wedding, and brunch. Also, I have experience in covering cultural weddings that may last for several days.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
This is a worse case scenario! This question is specifically addressed in the agreement. In general, the 2nd photographer will become the primary shooter.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My rates start 6 hours of coverage. A full day usually is 8 hours, but I also cover weddings for up to 10 hours as well.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I am available to shoot extra hours at your consent.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do not require the client provide me or my team with meals. However, most all clients offer this.
Do you charge for travel?
All my packages are inclusive. My quotes to you will include travel to your location.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
My enhancement is applied to every image before it is uploaded to your online gallery. Posting times are between 8-12 weeks after your event, depending on the time of year, and details or your event.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
All the images are the property of the client. It is listed in the agreement that I "borrow" the images to use for advertising purposes only.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Final enhanced, hi-res, print quality images are presented to the client.
Will images be available for viewing online?
All the enhanced images are posted to the client's online gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer my Castilian albums. These are charming albums with elegance and flair that appeals to the modern couple. Each of these lay-flat albums are hand crafted in Spain. Your wedding pictures will be designed in a collage style and printed on archival photographic paper. The pages are flexible yet sturdy and lay flat to allow for two-page spreads. Appealing is also the patterned end paper adorning the inside cover. The album is personalized and customized to taste with your choice of cover material and color, end paper, and also picture window. 
When will the client get the final album?
After you have made your albums selections and customized your wedding album, the delivery time for album proofs are available between 2-3 weeks. Once you approve of the album proofs, the album(s) will be arrive at your doorstep in 4-6 weeks.

My husband and I have just seen our beautiful wedding photos and it felt like reliving the most remarkable day of our lives all over again. What a gift!

John Heredia and his team are talented people. Simply top-notch. The level of professionalism, courtesy, artistry, and skill is unparalleled. John’s willingness to work within the parameters of our photo budget made it possible for us to hire a terrific professional (without compromising quality!).

Working with John and his team was a complete pleasure. They somehow managed to get photos of every key segment of the ceremony, every important guest, and every charming detail of the décor, without obstructing anyone’s view or missing an opportunity to capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment. The result: simply magic. The quality and skill is undeniable. The composition is excellent, the colors are vibrant, and the black-and-white images evoke an understated and timeless romance.

We have taken it upon ourselves to recommend John Heredia to our newly-engaged family and friends. We also hope to have another opportunity to work with him to capture the most special moments of our life together. Based on our engagement photo shoot with John and the terrific experience we had at our wedding, we feel 100% confident that John and his team are the right choice for our future events!

We spoke with many photographers before deciding to go with John Heredia Photography. When we first spoke to John, we immediately felt that he would be a great photographer to work with, and we were right. John is professional, accommodating, and easy and fun to work with. On our wedding day, John came to the hotel to take pictures, then accompanied us to Ft McHenry and Federal Hill for additional photos. He and his staff knew exactly what they were doing and they were very efficient without compromising quality. John's photographs on his website speak for themselves. While we were at the ceremony and reception, we barely knew John and his team were there, yet when we wanted a group photo, we knew exactly where to find him. We highly recommend John and his team for your wedding photographs (or any event)! We couldn't have asked for a more professional and delightful team to work with.

We had a wonderful time working with John and his professional team. John made the planning process very easy with his timely manner and expertise. John was open to our ideas and was excited to take the photos that we had imagined. The day of he made us all feel very relaxed. He was very efficient so we didn't feel like we spent the whole day taking photographs. Unfortunately, it began raining during cocktail hour so we had to take a lot of shots inside. John quickly adjusted to the change and it all ran smoothly. After formal shots were finished, John and his team continued to take photos longer than had expected. We didn't even notice that they were taking photos, which really made us feel at ease.
John was fun, quick, responsive, and fantastic to work with. We can't wait to get our photos!

I cannot even begin to describe how amazing it was to work with John and his team for our wedding. From our first interaction with John, it was clear that our photography was going to be about us and the story of our life. We chose to work with John for our engagement photos first and that gave us a glimpse into the kind of work that John did. He captured exactly what we wanted in all of our favorite places in Baltimore and the photos turned out AMAZING! And best of all- they were totally us and not what you would find everyone else having. John's charisma and personality is awesome to work with and he just made us excited about our photos! That can be helpful when you might feel a little shy!

As for our wedding day, John and his team was so accommodating and met us at different locations and captured different moments I thought were super important- first look, first look with my dad, traditional wedding photos. BUT, John also worked in our dog (who is like our furry child!) and did so without any hesitation. I mean to find a photographer who will willingly work with a dog AND a 2 year old flower girl on the same day is truly amazing! And John did it all knowing that it was a part of our "story".

Throughout our wedding day, I never felt posed or fake for the sake of pictures. We were able to capture those traditional moments and also those with our own flare. It was amazing to work with John and I hope that this will not be the last time!

John was amazing from the beginning. I'm from PA and he's in MD, but he came up to PA for our engagement photos and he did an amazing job at those. My fiance is a bit apprehensive about PDA's, but John made him feel so comfortable and we got great photos. We just had our wedding and John worked over time, he was always flashing photos and got everyone I asked for. His artistic point of view creates beautiful photos!

If you're a bride who is looking for one less thing to stress about for your upcoming big day...and you still need a photographer...look no further!!!! John was hands down the most reliable, helpful, fantastic photographer I could imagine. From his reminder emails when payments were due, to helpful tips to make my husband (and even myself) relax in front of the camera...to the stellar, artistic, unique shots John captured of not only my husband and I but our guests as well...we are SO thankful we went with John Heredia Photography. Honestly...I must have looked/spoken with 50+ photographers. John (and his wife, Jenn too) are fantastic!!!

My husband and I could not be more pleased with John Heredia Photography. His pictures are amazing and capture every moment of our wedding, from the typical "in-the-church" shots to fabulous candid photos of us, our family, and our friends. He and his crew are laid back yet completely professional, giving me ease on my wedding day while still getting the shots I wanted. The photos are exquisite and perfected, and were given in a timely manner, along with an unbelievable keepsake CD/USB Key. I highly recommend John Heredia Photography as I plan to continue using him for all of our big life events!

My husband and I were so grateful to have John Heredia photograph our recent wedding! After seeing his work for my brothers engagement session and wedding we couldn't not have John be a part of big day as well! From booking John, to the details of the engagement and wedding arrangements, everything was smooth and stress free, I never had a doubt that we would be happy with the end result. Happy doesn't even begin to describe how thrilled we were when we saw our pictures for the first time, they truly show our wedding day as if it they were telling a story!

The best!
John made us feel so laid back and relaxed. He was really cool and funny and does absolutely beautiful work. I'm recommending him to everyone I know who's getting married!
