I met John when I was a bridesmaid in my friend Jenn's wedding, and I was blown away by his work. When I became engaged 2 years later, John was one of the first people I contacted. My husband and I were planning on a September wedding. When we discoverd that John had no dates left in September, I didn't hesitate to switch our date to October. Yes, I planned my wedding around him! The 3 important things for me on my wedding day was:
-the groom
-the dress
-John Lyons

We couldn't be more thrilled with our pictures. We've gotten so many compliments on them. What better way to look back on your day than with photos by John Lyons!?!
He is an awesome person and an AMAZING photographer. I highly reccomend him!

Great Photographer - the work speaks for itself.
The only other comment be the after-wedding service - the album proofing, revisions and completion takes a very, very long time.

John was amazing! Our outdoor wedding was completely rained out, but you would not know that by looking at our wedding pictures. John captured the mood and atmosphere of the day beautifully! He was able to get all of our pictures in the 15 minutes we had when the rain broke. I would recommend John Lyons Wedding Photography to anyone. Pictures and memories are what we have after that day so it is definately worth the investment in John Lyons to preserve that day.

I knew I wanted John Lyons to photograph my wedding after reading an article about an award winning photo he took in our local newspaper, before I was even engaged! Needless to say, once I was engaged, I picked my wedding date based on his availability. Having read the other reviews, I see I am not not the only one!

John and Larisa took absolutely beautiful photos of our wedding. Almost two years later, my husband and I still look at them on a regular basis, and we have many of the shots framed and displayed in our home. John and Larisa had never shot at our ceremony or reception locations before, but despite their unfamiliarity, they were still able to capture a ton of stunning pictures which we love.

John and Larisa are wonderful people who were easy to work with and who helped make the whole day run as smoothly as possible. John was also an invaluable source of wedding information and knowledge, and was able to recommend several other vendors to me (including my amazing make-up artist) which really eased the stress of planning a wedding from out of town. I trusted his recommendations and they turned out to be great. I would highly recommend John and Larisa to anyone planning a wedding (and in fact have, he photographed my sister's wedding in August 2010).

Thanks to John and Larisa for their excellent work and for preserving so beautifully the memories from our big day!

John Lyons Photography captured all of the special moments of my wedding like no one else could. John was extemely professional and attentive! He was willing to go to various locations for our photos at no extra cost and stayed at the reception until all important moments were captured.

Our wedding pictures are unique and beautiful and will serve as everlasting memories of our wedding day.

Understanding that most professional photographers do not come cheap, the resulting product of John's service was well worth the cost!

I am always recommending John to all of my friends!!!
