I am fascinated with the art of photography. It is a very intimate process, one that continually challenges me, educates me, humbles me, and informs my beliefs about the world and its ways.

I love to photograph people. Some portraits show people as they want to be seen. Some, as the photographer wishes to see them. Others, as they truly are. Some of my best photos have elements of all three. It is with this mindset that I approach the photographic process. And it is through that process that I produce images which are honest yet affected, sincere yet inspired.

Johnny Wolf and his photos speak for themselves...He is the consummate professional while being relaxed and fun! He took his time with all 3 of our sessions (engagement, rehearsal dinner and wedding) but stayed on track and was completely focused on getting the best shots! We appreciated his candor, honesty and thoughtfulness plus his eye is amazing! We were so lucky to have him take our shots and would absolutely recommend him to any and all who are in need of professional pictures. Can't wait to see all the pics!!!

Back when my husband and I were in the drawing-board stages of planning our wedding, I told him that, while there were plenty of places to be financially conservative, having good photos was not negotiable. Kevin found Johnny Wolf through internet searches, and I was smitten with his work almost immediately. After we met with him to discuss his work and our wedding, I remarked to Kevin how quickly and seamlessly he put us at ease, and how that was one of the marks of a great photographer. Johnny was very receptive to what we had to say about our vision, what we liked and disliked about wedding photography in general, and he quickly drew up a proposal that catered to both our priorities and our budget. A few months later, we had an engagement shoot, and we were thrilled with the finished product.

Anyone looking at his work will quickly learn that he is a hugely gifted photographer, obviously deserving of five stars, and that's a given. I am personally choosing to give Johnny the highest possible rating because of all the other stuff--his kindness, humor, positive attitude, and his uncanny ability to be your calm in the storm. There is only so much planning two people can do to prepare for their wedding day, and a few small things went awry on mine (as they inevitably will for you, too). Johnny was flexible, made very helpful suggestions, got a wonderful variety of photos, but never made us feel rushed. Johnny is a real gem, and I have no hesitations recommending him wholeheartedly.

Johnny Wolf did an outstanding job at our late July Brooklyn wedding. He is great with lighting, so that's why we picked him. He doesn't rely heavily on flash, something we valued since we didn't want our guests (or ourselves!) to look sweaty and shiny in our wedding photos towards the end of the night.

Johnny shot all day. He literally never stopped--I kept urging him to drink and eat and take a break but he was just into shooting! Throughout the day, I could see inspiration take over his face as he discovered or thought of a different shot, and then he would set it up and take it.

Our wedding day was very hot, and he schlepped around two heavy cameras all day on leather harnesses and didn't complain once--instead he kept spirits light, and really encouraged the group to take fun photos. He even put up with my crazy family, and did so with a smile. ;)

His shots, posing and visions are very unique, and his prices are very reasonable for what you get. Our gallery was PACKED with awesome shots! He shot us around DUMBO but I'm sure he would be great in any setting.

I spent a lot of time researching and interview photographers before finding Johnny Wolf Photography. I knew within five minutes of talking to Johnny that he was the right person for us! In sum, he's simply a really nice guy that is efficient and effective at his work approach. Johnny is a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.

He was extremely helpful in the planning process and especially the months, weeks, and days leading up to the wedding. He is able to provide helpful information in an efficient manner so there was no need to take up a lof of our precious planning time. Most importantly, Johnny was such a calming and professional presence on the day of the wedding. He managed to somehow constantly take photos without making us feel like he was always in our face. Hes a ninja Photographer!! I would strongly suggest having him be part of as much of the day as possible so he can capture lots of moments leading up to the ceremony and reception.

We just received our photos and are more than pleased with his work...He captured way more than we were expecting and the close attention to detail on all photos (and edited ones) is much appreciated.

I hope you consider working with Johnny as he REALLY does deserve a 5 star rating for his work on my wedding!!

Johnny was amazing to work with. From the very beginning, he was interested in making sure he understood what we wanted, from capturing the feel of the day to specific shots.
Our family and friends barely noticed him zipping around, day of, and of all the things I remember from my ceremony, Johnny was invisible (in the best way possible). When we got the photos back, I couldn't believe the shots he captured! How did he do all that without being in the way? No idea. Even in the photos friends posted to social media, he's nowhere to be found. The man is a magician and his photographs are beautiful.
I only wish we lived closer so that he could take all of our family photographs in the future (we relocated to Florida), and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Easy to work with, amazing photographs, went above and beyond--even going as far as taking some photos after the reception that, being overwhelmed, I had forgotten to mention earlier.
Because we relocated early on in our wedding planning process, we weren't able to meet with Johnny in person before the big day, which could have been super scary, but we exchanged a few phone calls and I was impressed with the quality of work in the portfolios on his website. He put us at ease and was always easily reachable by phone and email.

Johnny is the perfect laid back/organized combination of a photographer. He is fantastic to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His ability to facilitate in the most hectic conditions (and my conditions were quite hectic) is quite impressive. We are really looking forward to getting our digital prints :)

I'm so happy we chose Johnny as our wedding photographer. We couldn't have asked for a nicer or more talented person to capture the best moments of our big day. Johnny made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and he was extremely organized from the beginning, helping us plot out the day's activities and scouting for amazing backgrounds ahead of time. Johnny puts 110 percent into his shoots. He also is very accommodating--he was happy to drive out to Long Island for our engagement shots--and creative--no dull photos here. On top of it all, Johnny is an all-around great guy who we were glad to have take part in our wedding.

We just got married in May at Dyker Beach Golf Course in Brooklyn, NY. We cannot even begin to describe how happy we are that we chose Johnny to be our wedding photographer. From the moment we met Johnny, my husband and I KNEW that he would be our photographer. Johnny is extremely professional, but he also relates in a way that makes you feel immediately at ease and like you have known him forever. Leading up the wedding, Johnny was incredibly supportive, responsive and helpful. Johnny shot our engagement photos in Prospect Park and did a fantastic job, and we knew our wedding day would be just as successful. During the day of the wedding, Johnny was incredible. He arrived early, and got to work immediately. Our day ended up being very hectic with unexpected rain which caused a lot of delays in our picture taking, but Johnny still managed to get in all of the shots that we wanted, and more! Our pictures came out INCREDIBLY! Many people have told us that they were the best wedding photos they have ever seen, and I would have to agree. He really knows how to capture the love between two people, without being overly restrictive about posing you. If you want a photographer who is truly talented, professional, and all around amazing person, choose Johnny!

I took one look at Johnny's blog and knew that I wanted him to photograph our big day. Between his photos and his words, you get to relive your special day over and over.
Johnny was amazing! He is sweet and warm, unassuming yet passionate. He put us at ease and really made a point of working with us to capture all of the major moments and people at our wedding. Even the other vendors thought he was tops.
I would highly recommend him, and I urge to go to his blog.

We travelled from England to NYC to get married in January 2013. We didn’t want the big fuss of a white wedding, but it was really important to us to have amazing photography that truly captured the emotion of our day to share with family back home. With Johnny, that’s exactly what we got.
Johnny was a true professional but he was friendly and relaxed – in fact, it felt more like spending the day with a (very talented) friend. We had a couple of our own ideas for shots, which he researched in advance and approached with real enthusiasm. His experience also meant that he had plenty of his own ideas for some breath-taking images. The freezing cold weather didn’t put him off either (although in hindsight I might have worn more than a cardigan!).
To be honest, it was a genuine pleasure to share our wedding day with him. At no point did we feel uncomfortable or rushed – quite the opposite. Johnny doesn’t charge you by the hour like so many other NYC photographers we looked at, which I think is a massive plus because the day FLIES by and it meant we didn’t feel like we had to compromise on deciding between locations because we had plenty of time.
Johnny really brought our nerves, tears, laughter and elation to life through his work. Our family and friends were blown away when we showed them the images – and so were we.
Like lots of young couples we were on a budget, but Johnny was affordable and incredible value. He’s also just a really lovely, affable guy with an incredible talent and an eye for detail which I think you would struggle to find with anyone else.
We never leave reviews, but Johnny deserves huge success and we can not thank him enough.
We ended up with HUNDREDS of stunning photographs (I still can’t look through them without feeling teary all over again!) which are a now a beautiful reminder of our day which we will treasure forever. Hiring Johnny was the best money we’ve ever spent – and we’d recommend him in a heartbeat.
