We met John at a bridal show and he immediately stood out form the rest of the photographers. He was very friendly, down to earth and his work work spoke for itself. We started out with 2 different engagement shoots, one twenties style and another at a historic location. Both of those shoots turned out amazing and the engagement album which was part of the package we chose was beautifully done!

John's pricing was very good and the quality of his work impeccable. He really works with the couple and works with your requests. He and his crew are very accommodating, a lot of fun and have great creativity.

The whole process was flawless from beginning to end. The entire Trusted Exposures team was very professional and prompt in communicating with us. They have a great eye for detail. They captured the magical moments of our special day. I'm sure the wedding album will be wonderful and we will cherish it for the rest of our lives. I would recommend John and his crew to anyone.

Thank you Trusted Exposures!

John and Holly have to be one of the best photography teams available in Virginia! We hired them to shoot our vineyard wedding and they were absolutely amazing! Not only were the photographs everything we'd hoped for, but John was always easy to contact and prompt with his responses, both of them were sincerely enthusiastic about the pictures and being part of our day, and the prices are beyond reasonable. We both felt comfortable being ourselves in front of the camera from the beginning of the day, and both John and Holly had lots of great ideas while being very open and excited to try any ideas that we had. (Really, they went above and beyond with some of our ideas!) Probably most special for me is that fact that their pictures made many of the stressful, chaotic moments and things going wrong seem right, perfect, and beautiful. (Trust me brides---you need a good photographer, because you won't get to soak anything in like you plan until you get the photographs!!!) We will highly recommend Trusted Exposures to anyone we know, and we are already looking forward to a "trash the dress" shoot next year, and who knows maybe maternity pics in the future???? =)

Trusted Exposures did a wonderful job. I had so many pictures to choose from and they caught absolute every moment of my wedding. I would highly recommend them to anyone. We had several awesome meetings to get everything together before and after the wedding. I am still going through my pictures and purchasing them. The album that the team designed for me took Im sure hours to design is wonderful. This album will be one that I will have for the rest of my life to share with grand children. There wasnt a problem to change anything in the album I wanted to change even if it was the smallest thing. Thank you Trusted Exposures for all your hard work!!

Looking back, I wish I had more various poses and pictures taken during the wedding.

The photos I received were beautiful and they captured the moments, but in some pictures, such as the cake eating pics, my husbands head was a little cut off.

I'm glad I got this photographer, just need minor improvements.

John and his team at Trusted Exposures were excellent. They were so professional and great to work with. They made sure to get all the shots we wanted and really blended in with the crowd. This was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Considering the quality of the photos and the professionalism of Trusted Exposures, we definitely got our money's worth and then some! I will definitely be recommending Trusted Exposures to all of my friends and family in need of a fantastic photographer!

Trusted Exposures is Awesome!! My daughter and I met John at a Bridal show in Richmond, VA and she immediately knew he was the one she wanted to photograph her special day. She and her fiance' wanted engagement photos, so John took them out to some fun places and got shots of them doing lots of fun things.
Then he came out to take her bridal picture outside in the heat and humidity at the Country Club where we were out on the golf course. He even included some of the golfers in pictures as they were playing through. Everyone got involved. That's just the type of person John is. Very accomodating, creative and a lot of fun to work with.
The day of the wedding his crew was there bright and early to take photos of the "getting ready" phase and then on to the church for pre-formals, the ceremony, and post-formals. John and his crew were very flexible and took special request photos of family and friends.
At the reception, the candid photos as well as the requested photos were just terrific. You really didn't even know they were there. They blended in the with the crowd and looked like they even had fun themselves.
I recommend Trusted Exposures for everyone's special day, from beginning to finish!

Trusted Exposures is a company I will recommend to everyone. John and his staff did a phenomenal job at our wedding. He was always there if we had any questions or needed anything. They took amazing pictures and I could not have asked for anyone better. John and Rebecca were like part of our family. Many family and friends even commented on how they blended so well with what was going on.

Ok, here’s the no bull review. John and his crew are AWESOME. Hiring Trusted Exposures was the best money I spent for the wedding... and I spent a lot of money that day. Years afterwards I can look at the photos with my husband and remember the intensity of the love and the joy of the day. Who cares of you have bigger centerpieces or extra appetizers if you can’t look back and remember all the precious moments? Love is what it’s all about and Trusted Exposures gets it. Hire these guys.

About me: I’m type A, outgoing, and work in sales so I have high standards, especially with service. Before hiring Trusted Exposures, I fired another vendor because they weren’t responsive. Specifically seeking a photographer, I met John at a bridal show a month before the wedding, and was particularly impressed with his demeanor and portfolio of Samantha & Mike’s wedding and her “trash the dress” session.

Two days before the wedding I caught the flu, and powered through it with wine and too many over the counter meds. While wine buzzing I did my own make up. Despite this, Trusted Exposures managed to make me look beautiful in nearly every photo all day.

Wedding day: John and his crew showed up early and ready to shoot. They took the time to ask about important relationships and listened to our requests. There were some amazing candid photos that were exactly what I wanted. They were cheerful and constantly worked the big day, from 10 am to midnight.

In addition to the ceremony & posed photos we had two receptions, plus some informal outdoor bride & groom only “sweetheart shots” in between. The sweetheart session was fantastic, they made my shy and reserved husband feel really comfortable and it shows in their work.

For posed photos, shots were reviewed immediately and re-taken if somebody blinked or adjustment was needed. They were efficient with set up and break down of auxiliary lighting equipment indoors. Every photo had extremely good technical merit, with proper exposure, lighting, and frame composition. They made the good looking people look marvelous AND the ugly people look good.

On top of it all John really captured the essence of us and the unique extra things about our Halloween reception, from the costumed guests at the plantation manor and rum fueled shenanigans of the wedding party, to my Mom’s surprise reaction when 100 people sang Happy Birthday to her.

After the wedding the pictures were re-touched and posted online within two weeks, which is remarkable considering there were over 800 retouched and 1600 posted. Trusted Exposures even sent us a few samples the same week. John was prompt in returning all calls and emails.

Two things I wish I’d done differently:
1. I should have written out a list of personalized unique shots. There were a few ideas I had prior to the wedding but didn’t write down and give to him. John has a solid set of “creative photos” he likes, which included some amazing photos I wouldn’t have though to take but am very happy to have. There were a dozen more shots I wish I’d asked for, like one with just me and my best friend outside with umbrellas.
2. I asked John to show up at the salon. We really didn’t need to have pictures of the girls before makeup.
