WHO ARE WE AND WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE US?

A mood…. A moment….. A place…. A poignant reflection of life…. Montage Verité, is an exclusive offering of Picture-Story® Studio/Jim Johnson Photography.

For thirity years, Jim Johnson, a PPA Craftsman, and Certified Photographer, has photographed events for paupers as well as Presidents. Over a thousand corporate and social events – original stories intended to engage the viewer, kindle the imagination and speak to the heart. Jim likes to say, “In the naked city there are a million stories and no two stories are the same.”

He has studied with the contemporary masters of his craft, and the works of the legendary pioneers. Subsequently, he exercised the courage to walk his own path. He believes that the greatest challenge we face today is to just be ourselves in a world that is constantly promoting conformity. The challenge of capturing an image that communicates to the viewer ethereal essence of the human experience is the fuel for his passion.

“Life is a collection of memories – some fleeting and others indelibly etched in the mind.” Montage verité is his unique style of storytelling that provides his clients with vivid vignettes that authentically convey the experience of participation to the viewer. Best of all, the guest will hardly notice the photographers’ (the witness) presence. “Nothing comes closer to reality.” The greatest desire for the event client today is to see and experience the decisive moment (authenticity) in the photographs. What sets Jim’s work apart is that technical excellence is never sacrificed in his quest to deliver the decisive moment in your photographs. He masterfully weaves a visual narrative into a mosaic that answers the questions, where, when, why, who, what and how.

Jim is a Professional Photographers of America, Int’l. Certified Photographer, Craftsman. He has presented seminars nationally, introducing his approach to visual storytelling. His award winning photographs have been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Town & Country, Organic Weddings, as well as trade publications and college textbooks. He has served as president of national and state affiliates of the Professional Photographers of America.

The Picture-Story Studio also features a new talent to the storytelling business. Lisa Haynes like Jim, has an advanced degree in engineering focused on imaging and has chosen to follow her heart, and use her talents as a visual storyteller to enrich the lives and touch the hearts of wedding couples.

Just Imagine – Your wedding story, the human experience, springing to life in vivid vignettes that kindle your imagination and speak to your heart. Montage verité, images that have a life of their own and compel you to relive the moments again and again.

Jim was easy to work with and took beautiful pictures. He was there from the beginning of the day through the end of the night. The album we were provided was in a nice book with our names and wedding date on it.

My daughter's wedding pictures were beyond what I was expecting. I had contacted Mr. Johnson after seeing a bride sue a photographer on Judge Mathis. All of her pictures were yellow and not a single picture of the bride. Everyone of our friends who have seen the pictures are awed with all of the shots. Thank you Mr. Johnson for making my daughter and her new husband's wedding a beautiful moment.

We used Picture-Story Studio for both an Engagement photo session and for our Wedding Day photography. We could not be more pleased with the results! Jim and Lisa successfully captured our love story and we love reliving the day through our beautiful pictures! Jim and Lisa were very calming and helpful throughout the day! The prices are a little expensive, but the quality and professionalism is worth every penny!

As a professional wedding planner I had my pick of many photographers when I was planning for my daughters wedding. Jim was the first person I called. Having worked with Jim in the past on weddings and from industry associations, I knew Jim was the perfect choice for my daughters wedding.

Jim did not let me down, the photos were beautiful, he was charm to work with as usual, and I would highly recommend Jim to anyone.

Jim's pictures were beautiful. He was really able to capture the better sides of James and I (Because as we all know, we can't all be beautiful models!). I really could not have asked for better pictures. Also, Jim was not just an incredible photographer, but a pleasure to work with. I think that many professionals can take a good pictures, but it's really about who you feel comfortable being around so that the picture taking is not just another "obligation" you have during your wedding, but a relief to know you've got the right person on the job. Jim has a wonderful relaxed manner to him and is such a pleasure to be around and willing to listen to anything you've got to say that I thought he was fantastic. I highly recommend him.
