Absolute Perfection!

Reviewed on 11/11/2013 Morgan

The word perfect does not even begin to describe our experience with JP! From the moment we met him we knew that we had to have him as our photographer. He was professional, talented, (born and raised in Brooklyn…my husband loved that!), and so much fun! From the start JP was... Read More always there to answer all of our questions. I'm the first to admit that I’m a control freak but with JP I was able to let go. I felt completely confident and trusted that we were in good hands. Our engagement shoot had to be rescheduled twice because of bad weather but he was extremely flexible and we ended up with a beautiful shoot and had such a fun time! Our wedding day was absolute perfection and I know that it could not have been possible without JP. He spent the whole day with my girls and I at our venue while we got ready. His positive attitude and fun personality really helped to calm me down, and my girls absolutely loved having him there! After the wedding, we received our photos so quickly! We were on our honeymoon when he sent us a link to the photos and I was absolutely thrilled to see how beautiful they came out. JP is beyond talented and I am so happy that he was there to capture such a special day. I highly recommend JP to any bride! We’re planning on having JP photograph every future event we have! Thanks to JP we have these beautiful moments captured in time and we will be able to cherish them for the rest of our lives. I will never be able to thank JP enough for making our wedding day so special!


Amazing Photographer!

Reviewed on 11/06/2013 Jillian D

My husband and I can’t recommend John-Paul enough. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and the pictures from our wedding were absolutely breathtaking. One of our primary concerns when starting our photographer search was finding someone that would make us feel... Read More comfortable in front of the lens. J-P put us completely at ease. He includes an engagement shoot as part of the basic wedding package. We were thinking of skipping this to save some money, but I we didn’t and I’m so glad for that. First of all, we ended up with some amazing engagement photos that we are so happy to have! Secondly, it gave us a chance to meet J-P and see how he works. So when we met him on our wedding day, it was like seeing an old friend. I can’t stress how comforting this was when we were both incredibly nervous! We also wanted more candid shots to the more traditional posed wedding party shots. J-P managed to give us both. He has such an amazing eye, and was able to capture, so many of those special little moments that made our wedding day so magical. Looking through the proofs was like reliving the day all over! Your photographer is such an important choice. This is one of the people you will interact the most with on your wedding day and the person responsible for preserving those memories that you'll only get to make once in your life! You won't regret choosing J-P!

JP was the first vendor we hired. We definitely liked his previous work, but what first sold us was gut instinct and a personality match. I knew he put my fiancé at ease, which was important to me, and that I could honest and myself around him. JP was the only NYC-based vendor... Read More of our CT wedding, and we definitely welcomed that no-BS New York vibe amid all the wedding madness. We had a ton of fun on our engagement shoot and were very happy with the outcome. But that 2 hours couldn't have prepared us for the incredible scope of our wedding day photos. Since we received them 3 days ago, it's been hard to pull ourselves away. They are extraordinary. JP doesn't work with a shot list, which I think makes room for a more fluid and fun wedding day with better spontaneity. We did feel like we had to keep any special requests top of mind so they didn't get overlooked amid the mayhem! But that being said, JP captured our wedding spectacularly from every angle. We are absolutely gaga over our photos--they totally bring our vision to life!--and it's hard to believe this all came from him and his second shooter, Derrick (who was also wonderful). In short, wedding photography is about both the process and the product. We found the former to be natural, comfortable, and fun, and the latter to exceed our wildest dreams. Thanks JP!!!

Where do I start? When we were looking for a photographer for our wedding, my husband did the research and sent me a few different photographers to look at and at the bottom of his list was JP. After going through them all, I immediately knew that JP was the one we wanted to go... Read More with because there was just something about his photos that seemed better than everyone else. When I let my husband know, he said that he put JP at the bottom because he had the same feeling, but wanted to make sure I looked at others before!!

He is one of the friendliest and energetic people I have ever met, and makes you feel right at home and so special while he is taking your photos. Not only that, but the pictures turned out even better than we could have imagined!! Leading up to our wedding, JP made sure that he was in constant contact with us to go over timelines and make sure that he had every detail ready to go. On wedding day, JP was amazing. All of our guests commented on the energy that he brought and how great he controlled the picture taking process, even without seeing one picture that he took, everyone could tell how amazing he was! JP made sure to get every shot that we wanted, and more. He took some truly outstanding photos from our day - from getting ready, to the ceremony, to our bridal party pictures on the beach, to the reception - JP and his second photographer, Jasmine, captured every aspect of our day. One of the most amazing things? The turnaround time! JP sent us a link to all of our photos just over a week after our wedding, and we haven't been able to stop looking at them and sharing since! It has been truly amazing to relive the day through the pictures and we could NOT be happier that we chose JP to be our photographer for our wedding. Not only are his pictures amazing, but he is truly a joy to be around and makes it such a fun process. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
