Phenomenal Photos; Unbeatable PersonalityReviewed on 10/27/2015 Dana S
Devon was the glue that held our wedding day logistics together. Obviously, you can tell from her work that she's an incredibly gifted photographer, but she goes above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable, meet everyone's needs, and stick to the tightest of timelines. (She's also the quickest boutineer pinner this side of the Mississippi.) We first worked with Devon during our engagement session in November of 2014 and were blown away by how natural it felt. She captured these beautiful, tender moments of an autumn stroll through our neighborhood through gentle and clear direction. Almost a year later, we had the pleasure of working with her on our wedding day. I'm not kidding when I say Devon stopped actual traffic to get the perfect shot of our whole wedding party. If you have a vision, she will find a way to make it happen. I'm not quite sure how to say this without sounding corny, but Devon is the type of person you actually want to be friends with. She's got a great sense of humor, a real down to earth attitude, and a sincere passion for what she does. And it truly shows in her superior work.
Comfort and EaseReviewed on 11/01/2014 Jessica M
Devon and Nikki did the photos for our wedding this past September. She made everyone in my bridal party feel very comfortable in front of the camera, including the members of our family that hate having their picture taken. Everything was super easy from beginning to end with Devon, and most importantly, her pictures are amazing!
Devon- The BEST ExperienceReviewed on 11/14/2012 Kristen P
Devon met with us for an engagement session and also took the pictures for our wedding. TO THIS DAY, I look at our photographs regularly. Working with her was so easy- she met with us in person, made us feel comfortable in her home, and showed us examples of her work. We knew her high standards ahead of time, and we were sure we were getting the best. Instead of feeling an awkward pressure to pose in certain positions or feel a specific way, Devon made us feel comfortable and natural. She captured genuine moments between myself and my husband; many of which look EXACTLY how I felt in that moment. On my wedding day, I do not remember seeing Devon as she took pictures. She was not "in our face" or invading our very precious moments. Instead, she discreetly moved about the church and reception hall capturing the moments that made our day so special. Our wedding was over a year ago, and I still keep in contact with Devon because she has become a part of our relationship. She felt more like a guest and friend at our wedding instead of just a photographer. I can NEVER thank her enough for the photographs that she took and the memories she preserved. I would recommend Devon John to photograph ANY and ALL important family moments. You will not be disappointed!
I can't say enough good things about our experience working with Devon. For the whole ten months from when we signed her on through to the end of our wedding night, she was organized, efficient, and tremendously communicative---all while being laid back and completely unstressed about everything. She really set the tone for us in the time leading up to the wedding, and then on the day itself, by remaining confident and always insistent that nothing was a problem. She did a great job of corralling the crowd on the wedding day, and her pictures were absolutely phenomenal. Devon is a true professional and and even better artist. She was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.
I first saw Devon at my cousin's wedding and was so impressed how she worked tirelessly capturing every detail of the wedding. Once I saw the pictures, I knew I had to hire her for my own wedding. I cannot reccomend Devon John enough. Not only were the pictures incredible, but she was a joy to work with from the engagement photos to the wedding day. I hate getting my picture taken, but Devon made the process feel natural. I could not have been happier with the final photos!
In 2009 my wife and I picked Devon as the photographer for our wedding. Between the engagement photos and the photos from the day of the wedding I dont know what more could be said other than Devon is a true artist in every sense of the word. Absolutely stunning photography and a great, fun person to work with. Devon is the real deal excellent people skills and stellar photography. Someone who will not only capture your fond memories but also be a part of them.
If I could give Devon 6 stars I would. The day of our engagement photos was an all around bad day, I felt a complete and total mess, but the photos are amazing, my fiance & I look natural and happy, and just overall amazing. The wedding pictures are 100 times better than the engagement pics were. I look at every photo and I can remember exactly how I was feeling. I am in love with every photo. There is not a bad one in the bunch, and there are quite a few photos from our day. Working with Devon was like having a girlfriend shoot my wedding. I can't imagine letting anyone else photograph the special days in my life.
We had an AMAZING experience with Devon! She is so fun to work with and she is amazing at capturing the real, candid moments as well as making the posed ones feel not so stiff. Her editing is beautiful and creative. I have recommended her to many people and will continue to do so. My wedding was 6 years ago and I'm so happy we chose her because time passes but the memories she captured are forever. <3
My husband and I have known Devon for years and when we got married it was no question who we would have photograph our wedding. She is so professional but yet added such personal touches that made our engagement and wedding pictures out of this world! To this day I still get compliments on our stunning photos. She captured every moment perfectly and I had no idea she was there most of the time. I cannot say enough good things about Devon and her extreme talent! She is simply the BEST!
My husband and i are so thrilled with Devon's work. She captured such wonderful, beautiful moments! Ive told so many friends about her already.
I absolutely love Devon and highly recommend her. We used Devon 8 years ago for our engagment and wedding photos and have continued to use her since. She has captured my 3 pregnancies, our babies first photos, and yearly family pictures. She always gets amazing shots and catches the right moments. She is also fun to work with and makes it a good experience. I am so happy we found her 8 years ago.
Worth every penny!Reviewed on 11/02/2014 Kacie O
My wife and I were referred to Devon from a friend, and we are very glad we listened and went with Devon John Photography. It is hard to describe in words how perfectly Devon captured every moment of our day. Her work completely speaks for itself. From our Engagement Photos to the Wedding Photos, every single shot was for a purpose. The way Devon makes you feel comfortable, and captures natural moments is one of a kind. My wife and I will continue to recommend Devon to absolutely anyone!
Made it memorableReviewed on 10/30/2014
Devon makes it so you are left with just memories of your day that you otherwise could be so busy you miss out on certain things. She makes it natural and easy. While she remains business thoughout she becomes your friend through the process. Devon knows what pictures she wants as well as when and where she wants them taken to get the best possible results. Excelent photographer.
Personal touchReviewed on 10/30/2014
I recently was a guest at 3 weddings in a 2 week period. Devon John Photography shot 2 of the weddings. They were very professional, but what really stood out to me was the fact that I never realized they were there shooting the wedding. They are wonderful at getting the personal shot , a special moment without making you "pose". I saw some of the shots from the weddings we attended on their website and honestly they were the most candid and real wedding photos I have seen. Beautiful moments between a bride and groom. Personal moments with family members. The one couple had children and the family photos just melted my heart. They were just sitting there with the kids and the photo tells the story of how happy this new little family is. Devon is a hard worker, and takes great pride in her work. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to capture the intimate moments of the day without being asked to stop and hold that pose. A true artist who takes great pride in making your day special.
Genuine moments captured by a genuine gal with a camera!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Bridget M
Devon John photography is much more than just a gal with a camera of course but Devon makes you feel just like that was the case! She is genuine and unassuming & captured the subtle moments of our wedding day that may have otherwise gotten lost in the "noise" of our wedding day. She made us immediately feel like it's our friend who was there sharing our day. And in fact, Devon works to get to know YOU; what your unique story is and magically captures your wedding essence. I love her pictures so much the biggest problem I have is narrowing them down. The most amazing treasure that I admire all the time is a video that Devon put together for me that was the epitome of our wedding day. I highly recommend Devon for any special occasion that you would like to remember in a truly unique and personal way and not a cookie cutter, cold experience like other big name studios.
Devon was amazing! Book now!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Cara G
I do not know how I can write a review that would fully do Devon as a person and her photography skills justice. From the beginning Devon was extremely easy to communicate with and dealt with any and all of my questions and concerns honestly and with kindness. Her pricing is fair and transparent. She will communicate with you openly throughout the entire planning process and has a lot of flexibility. She provided lots of great suggestions for how to lay out the entire day and how to go about planning the photos. On the day itself is where I felt we really made the best choice we could. Devon was a calming and professional presence. She sunk into the background when necessary to capture good shots but she was going to step up and help whenever anyone needed her to as well. It was less like having a photographer and more like having a very talented but professional friend with you throughout a very exciting but stressful day.she knew exactly what she was doing and help keep the timing of everything well run without being intrusive. She captured every single shot you could've wanted and if you would like the photojournalistic style which is more natural but very crisp and true to the people in the photos Devon is your girl. My husband and I who do not necessarily like having our photos taken felt comfortableat all times with Devon. She helped us with posing she help suggest locations and she gave us lots of great tips along the way that made us feel at ease. After we got the photos back after the wedding we saw that she captured literally every single moment from start to end and truly told the story of our entire special day. Everyone who has seen the photos has commented on how spectacular they are and we will treasure them forever. I am basically at the point where I am looking for the next event or excuse to hire Devon again not only because she is an amazing photographer but because she is a joy to spend time with. You will not regret hiring and Devon.
Devon is the BEST!!!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Bonnie T
As a photography and film teacher I have very high standards when it comes to pictures and media. Devon delivered beyond my expectations. She was professional, fun, and delivered amazing photos. After seeing the beautiful pictures she shot for my engagement sitting I was not the slightest bit worried the day of my wedding. Devon captured so many moments beautifully, got every photo I asked, and was so pleasant to work with. You will not be disappointed with her work!
Best Wedding PhotographerReviewed on 10/29/2014 Mary G
Devon came recommended by a relative of mine and I consider myself REALLY lucky! There are a lot of choices to make for your wedding so let me make this one easy for you...book Devon John today! She was punctual and professional. She has a great eye for unique photo ops. She makes great suggestions and also follows your lead. She traveled around the city with us in a cab to capture photos of where my husband and I first met. She was so calm and laid back which is what we needed on a day with so much going on. When we got our photos we were so amazed, she captured everything we wanted, every big and small moment. I highly recommend Devon John!
A record of our family began with DevonReviewed on 10/27/2014
We read good things from The Knot about Devon, so, when my wife and I needed wedding photos, we reached out to her. From the pre-wedding photos to the big day, Devon did a fantastic job. So fantastic, we decided to have her take photos of our first child at age 1 and 2. When our second child was born when our first was 3, we had her come by for that, too. And, of course, now that our second is a year, we've reached out to Devon again. I cannot recommend her enough. Oh, and I created an account on The Knot just to recommend her.
Devon is the bestReviewed on 10/15/2014
I can't say enough about the amazing job Devon did from start to finish. She has a great eye for beautiful shots and is an amazing person to work with. My husband and I are so happy with the artwork and photographs that Devon was able to provide for us on our wedding day. When you view the pictures in order, they tell a story that I will always cherish and remember. I would recommend Devon to anyone looking for an amazing wedding photographer!!!
Wonderful!Reviewed on 10/07/2014 Danielle C
When we first met Devon for our engagement pictures, we connected immediately with her. She's makes the sessions fun and loves a challenge. Our pictures were absolutely beautiful! On our wedding day, Devon and her assistant were so great to work with. They got all the pictures we requested and more. Many of our guests really complimented how on top of things they were. They captured every moment. Devon is fun, friendly and outgoing and she goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable.
AMAZING Engagement PicturesReviewed on 8/28/2014 Jordyn
We used Devon John Photography for our engagement pictures and I could not be happier with how they turned out! Devon is so sweet and instantly made both my fiance and I feel so comfortable and at ease. Since we are having a destination wedding we wanted our engagement pictures on the beach and Devon even woke up at 4 AM to drive down to Belmar to do a sunrise engagement sitting!!! The light in the pictures is beautiful and I felt that she truly captured "us" as a couple. After the shoot Devon provided the proofs very quickly and even added in an awesome GIF for our wedding website. She is an absolutely fabulous photographer and person who I would highly recommend!!!!!

Devon did our wedding in 2008, my niece and good friend also. We were all very pleased with her work. She even helped me with my hair before finishing a series of photos. Love her!
Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!!!!Reviewed on 9/25/2013 Heather R
I would definitely recommend Devon John Photography for weddings!!! She was so helpful and supportive during the wedding planning process. She was always available to answer any questions we had and was very creative in our group wedding pictures. We had left it up to Devon John as to what pictures were taken especially during our reception. We couldn't have been happier with the way our pictures came out!

Hi there! I’m a photo history nerd that never quite grew up, toy camera aficionado, animal lover, farm-stand frequenter and hopeless romantic. I love telling stories in pictures! I consider my job a scavenger hunt for beautiful light and unexpected moments, setting my clients up for success, and creating family heirlooms reflecting their happiest and proudest memories. I got my BA in Photography and Digital Imaging at NYU in 2001 with a focus in photo history and historical photo processes, and I now live in Yardley with my husband, Dave, and a wonderfully excitable black lab named Deogee.
