John and Margie were awesome to work with. We hired John Payton Photography for our wedding, and they did an absolutely fantastic job! They were incredibly easy to work with, and awesome the day of the wedding. John and Margie were able to capture "the story"; they are very talented at photo journalism. I love my wedding photos. They are able to get amazing shots, without interrupting your wedding experience. I actually remember thinking that I didn't even see my two photographers at the wedding reception, however, I have hundreds of great photos from the reception. Both of them have great work ethic, and an admirable respect for the client's desire. The only problem...How to choose which pictures to frame, because there are so many great options:)

Chad and I knew that we wanted to work with John from the moment we viewed his portfolio. John's photos are creative and beautiful. We couldn't wait for him to shoot us for our engagement and wedding. We were not disappointed! John specializes in "capturing the moment", a style which we are very drawn to. I would highly recommend working with John and his lovely wife, Margie, for your wedding. He truly is one of the best in the Tampa area!

John and Margie Payton do a WONDERFUL job on wedding photography! My husband and I got married May 17th 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed working with them. We are from out of state and did a destination wedding in Longboat Key, FL and working with John and Margie over the phone to get everything arranged went great! They were very easy to work with and did everything and more that they promised they would do! The pictures that they took were one of a kind....they captured every moment!!! They were so fun to work with and like I had said before the pictures turned out PERFECT. I have had SO many complements on our wedding pictures and everyone asks who did them. I proceed to tell them that John and Margie Payton took these. They are based out to Tampa, Florida and that I could not have picked better photographers. They were a blessing to work with and the pictures they took are amazing. I would strongly recommend John and Margie Payton!

John and Margie were absolutely wonderful. They showed up right on time, were extremely responsive, and a joy to work with. They were very amenable to any new shots we wanted taken, and were careful to blend in with the scene while still capturing those once-in-a-lifetime photos. It was neat to have a husband and wife team!

John and Margie did such an amazing job of capturing every moment of our special day. We didn’t even notice them taking the photos. When I got to see the final images I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. John and Margie really love what they do and care about your day. We believe the photographs are the one thing you actually take away from the wedding and we will always treasure the memories they captured for us. John and Margie were very professional and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend them for your photography needs.

John and Margie are simply amazing! Some people would describe me as "picky" or those who love me prefer: "obsessive perfectionist.” Either way, after my first phone conversation with John, I knew that he was going to deliver the goods. I’ve been around professional photographers my entire life and I’ve never seen photos as magnificent as theirs. The photos that he shot of my wife and I, my family and even the hotel were literally…. stunning. The hardest part of the experience was deciding which photos to use because they were all so amazing. John and Margie are the sweetest people with a great sense of humor and we all had a fantastic time before, during and even 2 years after the wedding. Proud to say that we have kept up email correspondence and consider him a friend. Best in the biz.

I would absolutely recommend John and Margie to anyone and everyone. I, somewhat embarrasingly, still look at my wedding photos on the website on a fairly regular basis. I LOVE them. I knew John and Margie had talent, but had NO idea how incredibly well they would document my day. I can't even count the number of people who have told me that my wedding pictures are the best they have ever seen. I have to agree!

Both John and Margie were such a pleasure to work with. They listened to exactly what I wanted and they kept me calm when I needed it the most.

It's so important to have amazing images to look back at and remember the best day of your life. Thanks to John Payton Photography I am able to do that! I would, without a doubt, recommend John and Margie to anyone.

John and Margie were abolustely fantastic. They showed up on time, were willing to work with our ever changing schedules, and blended right in with the family. They captured not only the standard portraits that our family wanted, but also all of the special moments that we cherish! Also, the quality of the photos we received from them is top notch! I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs a photographer!

Payton Photography did a great job with our photos and as a whole captured our wedding and reception beautifully. I did wish to have more of my family involved in the candid photos but.... I also wish the company had an album included in our package that they put together for us. I would definately recommend Payton Photo.
