John Park Photography
John is a wonderful person and an amazing photographer. If and when any of our friends get married, my wife and I know exactly whom to recommend.
Here are the top 5 reasons we recommend John:
1. Great artistic vision (he shoots for fashion magazines, so stylistic/emotive photos with great context come very naturally to him)
2. Speed... we were able to incorporate several venues for photos (both engagement and day-of) because he knows exactly what he wants when he sees a location and almost every shot is good
3. Genuine and friendly - it is easy to work with John because he has such a warm personality... he's very patient and great at coaching first timers like us in front of a camera
4. Flexibility - he is a professional, yet extremely open to amateur (our) input... he would listen to our preferences and try to incorporate them (he was very good at this)
5. High-value - his rate is very reasonable and my wife and I think he should win a competitive situation every time for the quality to cost ratio... he is amazing and you can't go wrong here
I chose John because I saw the photos he shot for two of my friends' weddings. And I'm so happy we chose him to shoot our wedding. He was super nice, flexible, professional, responsive and worked with our budget. You can tell he knows what he's doing and has done many weddings because he just knew how to get our groups pictures going where as at some weddings I've seen photographers struggle to get the groups together for the big family and friends photos. His service was better than what I could've asked for!
From our initial consult, we knew John was the right photographer for us. We chose him not only because of his dramatic aesthetic, but because of his gentle and calming spirit - major assets on a wedding day.
On the wedding day itself, John and his assistant were flexible, rolling with whatever props (rugby ball) we brought or family needs (difficult personalities) came up. They blocked no one's view during the ceremony, they showed up at the right times during the party, and they seemed genuinely happy for us.
My wife and I have beautiful memories from our wedding - and John and his assistant captured them with grace.
John does great work. I was referred to him through a mutual friend, and my husband and I are so glad we booked him for our wedding. Throughout the entire process John was great to work with; professional, responsive and gave great direction during our engagement shoot as well as on our wedding day. Once our pictures were posted on his blog, I received so many compliments from friends and relatives who were so impressed with his work. We also received our DVD of hi and lo res files already....I was impressed we got them so quickly! Our photos show the story of our day, and thankfully John was there to document it all. Check his work out and meet with him....you'll be happy you did.
Would recommend to friends. Great picture style. Really visually pleasing. Showed up on time, polite and cordial. Send us a DVD with all the images. And posted some of our pics on his blog. Thumbs up.
John truly has a gift when it comes to photography!!! He has captured every single detail of my wedding in such a way that my wedding looks better in the picture than what I remember. He knows exactly how to capture all the special moments in a perfect angle. He also gives you great directions so that you can model like a pro! He is the kind of photographer that would re-arrange furniture himself just so that your background is perfect for the picture! we were so happy with our pictures!
John Park is incredible! He is so talented and you can be sure that if you book a second photographer, John will pick someone equally as amazing as himself. We loved every single shot that he sent us!!! Don't be fooled by how reasonably priced John's packages are - his work is worth at least 2x what he is charging.
John Park is an amazing photographer and has exceptional talent. He was easy going with our guests and very professional to work with. He will definitely remain our photographer for future events.
