John Paul Kindig Photography
My new husband and I were just thrilled to work with John Paul Kindig for our wedding photos. We had such a wonderful experience. The day of the wedding was so magical and so many beautiful pictures were captured. He is so creative and thinks of things that no one else will. We got some really unique photos, as well as your more traditional shots; but all of them were great! We have nothing but great things to say. We would highly recommend John Paul Kindig to ANYONE who is looking.
John Paul is a marvelous photographer! Always getting that great shot yet never intrusive. Check out his website before you sink an outrageous sum of money on some other photographer. John Paul is quality and a great price!!!
John Paul is an excellent photographer, with very reasonable prices as well! We hired him as our photographer, but he did not actually photograph our wedding due to a sudden family emergency that arose less than a week prior to our big day. However, he had our wedding covered by another photographer, who was also excellent, and everything worked out great!! There was no extra stress or hassle that we had to deal with, he arranged everything for us. We are really happy with him and appreciate everything he has done to help us out!
When I was looking for a photgrapher, I didn't know where to start. I was calling place after place. All the prices were way to much. Then I found John Paul. His prices and quality of work was just what I was looking for. He was so nice to work with. I would definetly recommend John Paul Kindig Photography to anyone that is looking for a photographer and will definetly use his services again in the future.
I would recommend John Paul to anyone I know that needs a photographer. Not only was he very friendly and made everyone very comfortable, but he was non-intrusive, affordable and was open to all of the crazy requests that we had for pictures. We could see our final wedding pictures online after just a few days, and they are awesome!
Hiring John Paul for our wedding day was probably the best money spent out of all our vendors. I fell in love with his work from the moment I viewed his online portfolio. We purchased a complete package from him including our story book wedding album, our engagement album, and even a mini album that holds our DVD set. All I can say is wow, the albums are to die for and are really great because they are all a matching set.
At first my only reservation was not being entirely sure if a reportage style of covering a a wedding would be the best fit for our day, when I first met with John Paul I discussed this with him, and found him to be very meticulous, and was put at ease because he seems very selective of his clients in order to make sure they are the proper fit for his style, this really put my mind at ease to work with a photographer who didn't seem to view our wedding day as just another job.
During our actual wedding day, I really never even noticed John Paul was there. He is truly unobtrusive and lets the day play out as it should with no interference, just like he talks about when you meet with him and read about him on his website. His approach really put me and my DH at ease, especially my DH because he always seems to clam up and look goofy when he knows he is being photographed. Even during the formal pictures, he was very professional, and really does have an attitude that makes you comfortable.
Overall we loved everything, our photos and albums. I would highly recommend John Paul to anyone. He will be the best money you will spend on your wedding day period. Great photography defiantly not a place to cut corners, after all it is all you have left from your wedding after your big day is over, besides one another.
John Paul Kindig is an excellent photographer. I loved his work on his website and his affordable prices so I contacted him. The best prices I have seen for what you receive which is all your digital images on CD and an engagement session. Both DH and I loved his ability to make us feel comfortable. I barely noticed he was at the wedding. Also, he is very creative when it comes to posing. I only have one complaint. I just wish he would have given more than 12 photos for the engagement session. Overall, I loved my photos and I would recommend him.
John Paul is simply the best photographer around. It's that simple!
He has photographed my own wedding, my children, my cousins wedding, and our family reunion over the years.
If you want to go cheap for your photography, well you get what you pay for. If you want a photographer who is probably the best in Florida, well then you know who to turn to.
My name is John Paul, I am a wedding photojournalist and portrait artist. Outside of my professional wedding and portrait work, I am obsessed with street and documentary style photography. It is this style, which I try to incorporate into my
professional work. I am inspired by the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, and Annie Leibovitz.
I was born and raised in beautiful Clearwater, Florida. I like it here so much that I purchased a home one street over from where I grew up! Photography has been my one and only profession throughout my entire adult life. My beautiful wife Melanie is a local high-school math teacher, and outside of our professions, we stay very active within the community and enjoy travelling. We also have the great joy of raising our two amazing girls, Lillian and Penelope.
I believe firmly that as a photographer one must have the stongest work ethic and strive to be unquestionably good. This is what I work towards every single day. I believe stongly in the value and timeless elegance of composed portraiture blended along side contemporary photojournalism. The majority of my work is created utilizing available natural light, however I am skilled in working with flash photography, when the situation demands.
As a master of light you can rest assured I have the knowledge, experience, and tools to create a stunning body of work under any circumstance. I use Leica and Canon camera equipment and always keep three levels of back up equipment on hand.
If you would like to learn more about me I encourage you to send me a message through this website, or call me at 727-793-4956 so we can discuss your photography needs.
