Bride Reviews

“The style of the photos was exactly how our wedding felt. Even when I look at the photos now, it feels like I am reliving my wedding. They captured the fun moments and the tears of joy. Their pictures were candid and modern while also capturing classic moments that we will surely end up showing our family for years to come. They were wonderful.”

“John and Colette are a unique and valuable team. They are able to capture all kinds of moments while blending into an event. Colette and John are so laid back and calm while professionally going about their job.”

“The images were incredibly creative, thorough, charming and beautiful. Their skills at photojournalism captured my wedding far better than I could have imagined.”

“John has an incredible way of becoming part of the event while taking pictures. You hardly realize that he is documenting everything.”

“Colette is a talented makeup and hair stylist. She made me feel like the best version of myself.”

“Their portfolio is amazing and between the two of them they have an incredible amount of experience with all kinds of events.”

“I valued my time spent with Colette doing hair and makeup as it was a time to sit and be pampered and prepped. She has an incredibly calm manner that comes from being such a seasoned professional. We laughed and just enjoyed the preparations. I felt completely at ease and loved every minute.”

“They bring a calming energy to the event.”

“John and Colette are extraordinary professional photojournalists and extraordinary artists!”

“They are a breath of fresh air and the most real, down-to-earth and talented photographer and stylist I have ever met. I have seen a lot of wedding photographers and been to a lot of weddings, and I still think my photos are leaps better than the many that I’ve seen!”

“They are such an important part of what made our day so special.”

“Colette does a great job with make up and hair, and it was really helpful to have her present for the entire event for touch-ups and fixes. Since we had an Indian wedding, I even had a costume change between the ceremony and reception, so this was a huge plus for me.”

“They were honestly one of my favorite vendors, and I am so glad we chose them.”

“Absolutely, without hesitation, I would recommend John and Colette photography & beauty to my sister, best friends and anyone fortunate enough to secure their services.”
