I loved John's work and his style of photography, which is why I hired him. I actually fired my first wedding coordinator, because they didn't want me to hire an outside photographer - I felt that sure of John's work. And I was not disappointed. He took really beautiful pictures. My Mom also commented that he was not obtrusive when taking his pictures as well, something she saw with the photographer in a wedding she attended the week prior. I would highly recommend John for your wedding or event.

Everyone that has seen our pictures say that they look like pictures that you would see in a magazine. John is fabulous at what he does! I highly recommend John's services. He was professional, while keeping it fun at the same time.

The photography of my son's wedding in Maui was absolutely beautiful! There were so many absolutely
beautiful photographs that we had a difficult time choosing the best ones for portraits. We have had many
compliments on the quality of photography and our whole family is thrilled with these photos. John is truly a professional! I have already recommended John Pierre's to several people who are considering a Maui wedding. John Pierre's Studio in Maui is #1.

My bride Loree and I had arranged (well, let's say Loree had) all of the wedding plans from our home on Vancouver Island and had never met John before. He did however come recommended by a relative of a good friend of ours so we felt fairly comfortable.
Once Loree had contacted John and we had looked at his website, she felt very much at ease and his confident and easy going nature made her feel great about the decision.
Once we got to the beach for the wedding ceremony, John was already quite prepared and after a brief introduction we started the ceremony.
John worked his magic and we hardly noticed him moving around us. We had no idea how many incredible pictures he had taken of our special occasion until we received the disk from him and got to have a look for ourselves (which I might add was available to us only a short time later).
When Loree and I started looking at the pictures on the large screen TV in our rented condo, we were completely BLOWN AWAY! The quality of the pictures and the amazing shots were magnificent!!
We have since put some of the pictures on our facebook page and our friends and family have been equally impressed.
We would wholeheartedly recommend John as a perfect choice for anyone looking to have their wedding (or any other occasion for that matter) photography done here in Maui.
Cheers,
Bill and Loree McGowan

All five stars because thats what kind of service I got. We were married in October and had a wedding coordinator who recommended John. I will admit this was a whole new experience book a fairly expensive and important service without previously meeting. We traveled from WI to Hawaii and they is no way to do the typical "meeting" before the wedding in the case. John sent me a great email before had assuring me of his experience and put me at ease knowing the I had chosen the right photographer to capture our big day. On the day fo the wedding I felt happy, unstressed, and like I could relax and enjoy the wedding while he did what he does best. He had an assistant who got amazing candid shots while he let us have fun and take relaxed shot as well as gorgeous and vibrant naturally posed shots. Completely professional but not uptight or uncomfortable in how he works or does business. The pictures were up for viewing quickly and ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. We still keeping looking at them over and over and I know we will enjoy them for so many years to come. You have alot of choices on the island and everything seems to cost a little more in Hawaii. I highly recommend you make room in your wedding budget to fit John in. His photography and services were well worth my time and money and I could not be happier.

It was a pleasure working with John. The photographs he took of our wedding were absolutely fantastic! He took the time to photograph us in gardens and on the beach in addition to the ceremony itself. He took the time to enhance the photos so that all the images pop with vibrant color (and he softened some of my wrinkles - thanks John!). Over the years we have subsequently purchased enlargements, a DVD slideshow, and a wedding album. These products have provided us with treasured memories of our event in beautiful Maui. He designed our album himself and took great care in ensuring it met our wishes through a few revisions. We couldn't be more thrilled with all the results. Thanks for everything John, Mahalo!
