I approached wedding photography later in life after helping my wife Maggie plan our special day. After that experience we discussed what could have been improved to help us remember all the special moments of that day. After much consideration and gentle pokes from my lovely wife, I jumped in head first.

There are two important points to consider when choosing your photographer; personality and service. If your photographer and you do not get along, it will be obvious in the results. The best packages or lowest prices cannot overshadow the importance of communication and customer appreciation. I take pride in delivering the quality you expect in a timely manner to ensure your complete satisfaction. I love the look on the bride's face when everyone gets a slideshow preview of the wedding photos at the reception.

It is my passion to give my clients great images combined with over the top personal service delivered on the best products in the industry. I love what I do and will bring that passion to your special day.

Thanks for considering me.

Although my wedding day was beautiful and perfect, it couldn't have fallen apart any worse than after our "Red Carpet Premier" with Ron. We met with Ron to review our photos from the wedding. They were good. Not great. Good. As the bride I was extremely heartbroken to see only one hi-res photo of me with my family. ONE. I have dozens of pictures of my husband and I with HIS family. The way I see it is, the bride's family paid you, you so why would you only give the bride one photo of her with her family. I'm also missing over 100 hi-res photos from my reception. With that said I'm also not able to order my "book" which was part of my package due to the fact that I am still missing images. We received a shady email stating there had been some family issues and he would resolve the matter as soon as possible. WRONG! I personally know a member of his family, which is one of the reasons we went with him, I have contacted that person to make sure everything with Ron was okay. I was then informed there was no trauma in his life that would cause him to not full fill his end of his project. In fact he has a full time job now and is no longer doing photography. I just want all brides out there for the 2012 season to use someone else. He may be a good value but I learned a hard lesson in you get what you pay for. I have contacted a lawyer and will be taking him to small claims court as soon as possible. DO NOT USE RON EVER!!

Ron was amazing, he came to the hotel to take pictures of me and my girls before and after we were dressed and he stayed with us the whole day until the very end of my reception. He took so many pictures and he was very professional. I will definitely utilize his services again.

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Not only was Ron incredibly professional but he was also very personable! Ron was there on our wedding day from the time I got my hair and makeup done, until the last piece of cake was served. While we were eating dinner he had made a slide show of the pictures we had taken before the reception for us to enjoy while we ate, AND his wife even called on our wedding day to congratulate us! Ron went above and beyond what he was "required" to do, we have for sure found a photographer for life!

He has gone up in price since we last used him but he is worth every penny. He says he does all day coverage and he means all day coverage. He started out was with us at 8:00am in the morning for my bridesmaids and I's hair and makeup appointments at Ulta Salon and joined us again at noon and stayed with us till 9pm when my husband and I left the reception. For the photo shoots he traveled to all the different sites that we wanted to visit in St. Louis and did not charge extra. His picture packages are extremely well priced and affordable and he is excellent at photo editing. I highly recommend him! He was awesome.

Ron had an awesome photo package, was extremely creative and kept everyone in line while taking pictures for my wedding! I've been asked "who was your photographer?!" by almost everyone that came! At the reception, he also had a laptop displaying the wedding party pics from earlier in the day, which really impressed everyone.

Was the most reasonably priced photographer that we found. Ron was extremely professional and made sure we got every shot we wanted. From the engagement session through the wedding and reception he was there. He took thousands of pictures and made sure to capture every moment for us. The hardest part was picking the 200 pictures we wanted. Of course we do have the disk with every picture on it to keep and make additional prints forever.

Ron Johnson is an amazing photographer with a great personality. I enjoyed every minute of my time with him. From the start with the pre-consultation, I could tell that he wasn�t just a person with a camera wanting a job. He cared about my husband and I, and what was important to us. He really took the time to get to know us, which helped him understand exactly what we wanted in a photographer for our wedding day. I told him that I loved candid shots, and candid shots is what I got! I was very impressed with the amount of great shots he captured at the reception, and the creative thinking used for our formal shots. Not only did many of our guests feel impressed with his services, many of them, including some of the wedding party, have inquired about him for their special events. I would recommend Ron Johnson to anyone. He has given my husband and I memories of our special occasion that we will never forgot. Thanks Ron!!!
