We were recommended to use Prestige Barkley by a close friend and man oh man we couldn't have made a better choice! From the start, Patricia was immediately responsive and as sweet as pie! She listened to our needs and provided us with the perfect package right from the start. Once we made contact with John, we loved how he was straight to the point and made sure to ask us exactly what we wanted to ensure everything would be smooth.

On wedding day, he was right on time and let me tell you worked his butt off! John was amazing...he was personable, detailed, efficient and went above and beyond in our opinion. Everyone was commenting on how he really was doing his best to make sure every moment possible was captured. All we can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH. The pictures came out beautiful... we couldn't have asked for a better outcome for our special day!

Patricia and John were amazing in every way! First of all, they did an excellent job wrangling and entertaining my many nieces and nephews during my formal wedding portraits. Second, they are pleasant, helpful and fun to work with. Third, and most importantly, the photos came out great! They're very artistic and made suggestions that I never would have thought to do, but turned out to be the coolest photos we have. I would highly recommend them for a wedding or any other occasion

We worked with John & Patricia for our engagement session, they work as a great team and really have an eye to create a beautiful picture. Patricia has been EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable throughout the process leading up to our big day. Manny and Rod (with help from patricia) shot our wedding and we could NOT BE HAPPIER with our images! Both were so great and easy to work with and really captured our "in the moment" images we were looking for! Manny was a dream to work with as our main photographer for the day, very easy to work with and captred all those moments we hoped he would and them some. I would highly reccommend the team at Prestige barkley for future brides to be. You will not be dissappointed!

John is an amazing photographer. My family has used him for every single one of our special occasions and he never disappoints - in fact, the opposite - he always amazes us! I don't consider myself to be a photogenic person, but John is able to capture everyone so naturally and is super helpful with dictating poses if you are not good and knowing where to put your hand, where to look, etc. (which I am not). I highly recommend using Prestige Barkley for your next event.

Choosing Prestige Barkley was the easiest decision that my husband and I encountered for our wedding. Patricia and John are masters of their trade and have such amazing talent. Reviewing their website and after our meeting with Patricia I felt 100% confident that they would capture the exact feeling of the day we were hoping for. There are seemingly endless photographers in the area who adopt some of the trends, but lack some of the classic, timeless photographic tendencies that set Prestige Barkley into a league of their own. Patricia is so well-organized, which put me completely at ease. Our pre-wedding phone conference was so thorough and on the day of the wedding, we got every single picture we discussed, practically in the same order! John was so much fun on the day of the wedding and was able to keep me calm (i was so nervous i would be a mess in all of my photos!). The turnaround time was UNBELIEVABLE - less than 4 weeks!!! Our family and friends loved that they had access to the full gallery and many have plans to oder prints! My husband and I are having a difficult time choosing which ones we’ll get printed also, and hope to be able to get our full album for our 1 year anniversary. Thank you cannot even begin to encompass how grateful we are to have such amazing photos of our wedding day - we will absolutely be calling Prestige Barkley for every other life event, and will be referring any of our newly engaged friends and family as well!!

As the mother of the bride, I had no input as to the choice of photographer. I only hoped that whoever the bride and groom chose would do a decent job. Prestige/Barkley was fantastic. From the very beginning of this process to the release of the photos, they were responsive and helpful. John, the photographer, came to the house the morning of the wedding. He was friendly, professional, and unobtrusive. He and his assistant remained with us throughout the wedding ceremony and the reception. I cannot believe all of the shots they took and I don't know how they captured this event so perfectly. Formal/informal photos all are of the highest quality. I highly, highly recommend Prestige/Barkley. The price was reasonable as well!

My husband and I knew right away we found our photographer the first time we met John. From our initial meeting to our wedding day, John (and Patricia) have been fabulous.

We created a custom wedding package, that consisted of engagement photos, 2 photographers during our ceremony and reception, an online service to view photos, a custom designed coffee table book and a flash drive with non-watermarked photos.

John and the 2nd photographer, Vladamir, captured every single wedding moment. Both have such a great eye for classic and unique shots. We could not have been more pleased with the results!

I would HIGHLY recommend Prestige Barkley to anyone looking for the perfect wedding photographer!

We were thrilled by our experience with Prestige Barkley. John has an amazing eye for detail and was so enthusiastic about getting the best shot. Patricia was extremely helpful in making sure that nothing fell through the cracks so that once they were hired, we barely had to think about the photography, we just knew we were going to get great pics. We will definitely be using them to take pictures for us again in the future. Highly recommend!

From the initial meeting with John, my husband and I were sold and knew Prestige Barkley was going to be our choice! After meeting with multiple photographers, John was the only one that we felt was excited as we were about our wedding. His enthusiasm and passion for what he does is very evident. John and his wife Patricia were very accommodating scheduling our engagement session last minute so that we could have our photos done with the fall foliage. The pictures came out fantastic. John is willing to do just about anything to capture the perfect photo. Our engagement session was fun and the photos were amazing. It gave me the confidence that the wedding photos would be just as great and they were! I can’t say enough about what an amazing job John and Joe (the second photographer) did the day of the wedding. Joe’s ability to get my 2 year old nephew to pose and smile for photos was impressive. They not only captured the portrait photos, but also many candid shots as well. They were more than willing to meet all my photo requests, including the last minute decision to make a stop at the convalescent home so I could get photos with my grandfather. I cannot say enough about how wonderful John, Joe and Patricia were every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your wedding or any occasion for that matter. They are a great group of people!
