Welcome and congratulations on your engagement! As you browse photography throughout the site you will notice that the best photographers have a strong style that stands out from the rest. I take great care to create images that are beautiful, elegant, and full of emotion. Wedding photography is an opportunity to create works of art that are beautiful in their own right, but so much more meaningful because of the significance of the event. I try to create timeless images that capture these qualities for you. Read less

John photographed our wedding in August 2009. We were planning an outdoor wedding in a garden, but nature had other plans. Because of rain, we had to move the ceremony indoors. We were really bummed that our outdoor pictures were ruined but John was able to save the day. He found a great area under an awning overlooking the gardens that we could use. You can't tell that it was raining or under an awning in any of the pictures. They look fantastic.

At the reception, he set up a laptop with some of the pictures. It was a huge hit among the guests and created a lot of buzz about his quality of work. We got an assortment of photo styles - photojournalism, posed, beauty, etc. All turned out great.

John is a pleasure to work with and takes great pictures. I highly recommend him for your next event.

Hiring John LaVere as our photographer was the best decision we made during our wedding planning. We have, quite possibly, the best photos that I have ever seen from a wedding. John was extremely professional and very personable. I would recommend him to anyone and look forward to having the chance to work with him again some day.
