I can't say enough good things about Anne and John Woelke, photographers and owners of W Studios. Anne photographed my wedding and while I was already familiar with the quality of their work and I expected a great product, she delivered above and beyond. The key is personality. Anne doesn't know a stranger, and her genuine friendliness helps anyone warm up to the camera and have a great shot. She managed to be everywhere that it was important to be at the exact moment it was right to be there. She knows weddings inside out, which helps her really connect with people and get all the right moments. She even jumped in (unsolicited) to help with some of the setup when there were a few unexpected glitches before the ceremony began. Our wedding had a pool jump at the end, and we never would have requested this of her, but she even brought a bathing suit and a waterproof camera housing to get in the water for some even closer shots of the action. John is just as friendly and talented, although he didn't shoot our particular wedding. They had our photos online within days of the wedding, and later we received our disk in a very pretty keepsake folder. I'd recommend W studios for weddings and any other photography you need.
We are so pleased with the photographs and can't thank John enough for all his help in getting exactly the images we wanted to capture our special day. He was kind, friendly and blended in with the crowd to take the spur of the moment shots as well as taking all the group photos we wanted. We recommend W Studios to anyone looking for an amazing wedding photographer.
John and Ann from W Studios are an absolute joy! I did engagement, bridals and the wedding photos thru W Studios and was thrilled more and more with every shoot. John is so artistic and gets tons of fun shots with interesting angles. He is so professional and really understands all the aspects of capturing the perfect photo.
And Ann! She was the "extra bridesmaid" on my big day! She has an eye for the emotional moments and is always there waiting with camera in hand! She helped with my dress, calmed me down a bit before I walked down the aisle, and was just a joy to be with on our perfect day.
You will never second guess the great investment of these photos. They not only captured the events of our wedding day- but the emotion! A++++++!! I love them!
W Studios was such a blessing at our wedding! I am not very photogenic, and I was a little worried about so many pictures being taken of us, but I'm so glad they did. They are amazing photographers, with a great eye for detail and composition. Plus, everyone looked great in the pics (especially me, the bride!). The pictures were beautiful and interesting and I have gotten many compliments on them. We feel that they documented the happiest day of our lives in such an amazing way. There are so many good pictures, it's hard for me to choose which ones to print.
If you are looking for unique, beautiful pictures, I highly recommend W studios.
We really enjoyed working with John and Anne! My bridal pictures were amazing and I think the value of their service was excellent especially compared to other studios.
John is very talented and professional photographer. I would recommend him to any bride. I have recommended him to any friends I knew that were getting married before I got engaged. When it was time for me to plan my own wedding, I didn't even consider any other photographer. Even though Anne (his wife) is a great friend of mine, I knew I was going to get great photos. I've seen most of his work and have consistently been impressed. I've been a bridesmaid in one of the weddings he shot and a guest at another. He and Anne drove from DFW to Houston for the wedding and were on time for everything. He started shooting pretty early in the day and I have no idea when he stopped. I know it must have been pretty late. The group shots were done quickly and efficiently after the ceremony so we were able to spend a little time with him one-on-one before heading to the reception. He was always taking pictures. I think I saw him sit down maybe once or twice to eat a bite of food/cake. I think he also had fun! Of course, our wedding photos were wonderful. The proofs were online within days. I was on my honeymoon in Mexico enthralled by them rather than the blue ocean out my hotel window! I have gotten a tremendous amount of feedback from the photos - everyone loves them! I haven't gotten my album or DVD proofs yet, but will be receiving them in the next couple of weeks. I was able to go through the proofs online and pick out my favorites so John knew which ones I liked the most while designing the album. I suppose I might come back and add my comments on the album - surely it'll be fabulous! Anyway, John is great. You won't be disappointed.
EDIT (10/4/09): Still haven't received my album or DVD with the images. Apparently my DVD is coming to me next weekend. Will keep you posted.
John has giving us the most amazing photos. They captured our wedding day so perfectly. He is so talented and hiswork shows on print. I was so pleased with the customer service and photojournalism . he remembered to take all the pictures that i wanted to capture on our wedding day. My family and friends made comments on how he took photos the entire evening and seemed to caption everything. His photojournalist is a one of a kind. I would was 100% satisfied and I am tough about photography. Looking back now at our wedding album, im so grateful for john and recommend his services to others.
John went above and beyond our expectations. He didn't just provide the traditional wedding photographs (though those were included) he took a ton of candid, beautiful pictures of all the events at our wedding. We didn't need a videographer because John documented the best moments of our wedding so well. The photographs turned out beautiful, they were well composed and wonderfully shot. Our family members remarked they were the best wedding photographs they've ever seen. His photojournalism background definitely allows him to capture the moments traditional wedding photographers can't. John was incredibly professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to document their wedding day beautifully.
W Studios has been an amazing pleasure to work with! John and Ann are a great duo. They are always professional and fun! I recommend their services to any bride in the Dallas/Fort Worth area!!
