Captured Our Day Perfectly!!!!Reviewed on 6/29/2015 Jamie H
Josh and crew blew us away! I was nervous about choosing our photographer because we had a winter wedding and I knew it had to be someone creative. From our first meeting with Josh, we knew he was it! The crew was with both my husband and me throughout the day and captured everything! Moments I thought were gone, except for memories, were right there when we reviewed our gallery! I still get happy tears in my eyes every single time I look through our photos.... Not only are Josh and Rebekah AMAZING and BEYOND TALENTED artists, but they fit right in with our day! They made us laugh and I swear that there must have been 3 of each! They were everywhere! I cannot say enough about Josh Mariana Photography. If you are reading this review, you should just save yourself the hassle and book now! From the photos, to the albums, to the thank you cards, and finally with our beautiful cinematic video- JMP is it. Look no further! Thank you a million times over, JMP! Because of you, our perfect day has been captured forever!
Best Photographer in PittsburghReviewed on 10/16/2015 Vanessa I
Josh Mariana Photography did an amazing job of capturing the beauty and joy of our wedding day. Josh is so easy to work with it doesn't even seem like he is taking pictures. He did our engagement photos, our save the dates, our wedding day photos, our wedding video, and our photo booth. Everything was absolutely perfect and our wedding photos capture how special this day was to us. Josh makes it easy to take pictures, he guides you through the process while laughing and joking with you. Josh takes the time to get to know you personally so he knows exactly what type of couple you are. I would give Josh 100 stars if I could and would be happy to recommend him to any bride in the future. I couldn't of asked for a better photographer and I am very happy we decided to go with Josh Mariana Photography for our big day! Thanks Josh!
Professionalism, value, amazing end productReviewed on 8/17/2013 Anna M
Photographers are unique in that they are providing both a service and a product. Lots of clients end up sacrificing one thing for the other...they work with a really nice photographer who responds quickly to requests and is a joy to work with, only to have mediocre photographs. Or they suffer through working with a rude, overbearing, or unresponsive photographer, all in the name of a great final product. Josh Mariana Photography is one of only a few vendors I've come across who EXCELS at both providing amazing service and a top notch final product. Through the entire process (initial meeting, contract, engagement session, wedding day, and beyond), Josh and his team were the picture of professionalism and efficiency. Josh responded to questions quickly before and after the wedding, and was flexible and accommodating on the big day. We worked with an amazing and enjoyable team, and in the end, walked away with final products that could not have been better (both photo and video). Value is another great selling point for Josh Mariana Photography. I know plenty of people who had similar experiences with their photographers, and were very pleased, but they also paid two to three times what my husband and I paid. I think it would be difficult for one to find a photographer of comparable quality in Pittsburgh at the same price point as Josh. I highly recommend Josh Mariana Photography.
Words to describe Josh and his team: Professional, creative, hilarious, personal, comforting, talented, caring, impressive, courteous, engaging, INCREDIBLE. We cannot thank Josh and his team enough for capturing every beautiful moment we shared - from our engagement to our wedding day. The team eased our minds of any wedding day jitters, and made us laugh from start to finish. They treated us like friends, not clients. We are so grateful to have chosen Josh and his team to be part of our day - we can't imagine it any other way! The best investment we made by far.
Josh was so easy to work with from the time we signed the contract through the end of the process! Josh & his sidekick, Jesse were spectacular from the moment they arrived on our wedding day. So calm and open to ideas , they made the entire wedding party feel comfortable. Josh is not afraid to try any shot(s) that you may find on Pinterest ;) Communication and turnaround time was excellent. We used Josh for engagement and wedding photos. He produces awesome work and really takes the "work" of the bride & groom! We highly recommend Josh Mariana Photography !!!
Josh and his team went above and beyond our expectations! Josh was highly recommended to us through a family member, and my husband and I will be forever grateful for that! Josh took time to meet with us and from there on our personalities just clicked! Josh Mariana photography was so wonderful to work with, and not to mention, does truly amazing work. Josh did our engagement pictures, our save the dates, our love story video, our wedding day photography, videography, photobooth and guest book! I've received endless compliments on all of Josh Mariana Photography's work. My bridal party was amazed with Josh and his team, and how easy they were to work with. You barely even knew they were there while capturing the most perfect pictures that my husband and I will forever cherish. I know we will be using Josh Mariana Photography again in the future!
I recently got married October 2015. I used "theknot" to help me find the perfect photographer for me. From our very first phone call, Josh was extremely professional and such a great guy to work with! From our save the dates, guest book album, enagagement photos, wedding photos, wedding album and video...everything was exactly what we dreamed of and more! I get compliments on my wedding vendors all the time but mainly about our photos and video! Josh is highly highly recommended from us! I know your wont be disappointed hiring him to capture the best day of your life!
WonderfulReviewed on 10/16/2015
Josh provided a great service throughout the whole experience. Very flexible with our ideas and provided a lot of input on what would work best on the day. Josh and Rebekah were good sports and very professional on the day and the photos turned out even better than we'd hoped! One of the only aspects of the wedding that we had absolutely no problems with. So good that we returned to Josh a couple of months later for some photos of our new puppy! Can't recommend highly enough.
We chose to work with Josh mostly because of his professionalism and demeanor. We wanted someone who would be enjoyable and pleasant to work with, had the task covered and we wouldn't have to worry about anything, and bring a sense of calm to an otherwise hectic day. He did all this and more. Not to mention the quality of his photographs, he really captured our day and style wonderfully. He did a beautiful job. Josh also worked with us on our package and other requests. He was very responsive throughout the process and even provided other services like thank you cards and save the dates. Great experience and highly recommend.
We looked at several photographers in the area including Josh and after evaluating it was clear Josh was our best option. He offered at complete package (engagement, wedding, video) at a very fair rate and his style was exactly what we were looking for. After we started working with Josh for our engagement session it was clear we made the correct choice. He worked with us on a short time line as we traveled to Pittsburgh from out of state and took incredible engagement photos. After he was professional and walked us through our save the dates and guest vook. The results were fantastic. At the wedding Josh and his team showed up early and we're accommodating to every photo / set up we wanted, and we're unobtrusive throughout the ceremony. Afterwords there was an incredible turnaround on the photos (6 days) and video (8 days). We were very impressed with all of the photoa and the video was a great way for us to see all of the details and fun that's it's hard to capture on your wedding day. Overall our experience was fantastic. Everything was great price, product, availability, professionalism. I cannot recommend Josh with enough enthusiasm.
Wonderful photographerReviewed on 10/12/2015 Lauren S
Josh did our engagement session, wedding photography and videography for our event on 10/3/15. He did an amazing job getting both formal and candid pictures. He got to know us as a couple at our engagement session and fit our style very well by the wedding. Our package came with a photo guest book with pictures from our engagement session, a photo album with our wedding pictures, a wedding high lights video and a $200 print credit. Everything turned out amazing and he even got our wedding pictures and video back to us within 2 weeks of our wedding. He brings a female assistant with him to the wedding so she can take pictures of the bridal party getting ready without making them uncomfortable, he responds to calls and emails within a day, and had overall great customer service. I couldn't of imagined a better photographer to work with and highly recommend Josh to others.
Awesome team!Reviewed on 10/01/2015 Brittany F
Josh and his team are very professional and do an amazing job! The pictures turned out beautifully and the video was so nice!
Beautiful Pictures - Great ServiceReviewed on 10/01/2015 Jenessa L
My husband and I used Josh Mariana Photography for our wedding reception in July 2015. He always responded to emails quickly. Josh went above and beyond, we had a small reception but he did every picture we asked of him and more. When we got our pictures from him we were really impressed, they really are beautiful. I would recommend Josh Mariana to anyone!
Josh did such an amazing job on both our engagement and wedding pictures. He went above and beyond to make sure all of my crazy ideas were met and his work was truly breathtaking. Not too many photographers would go out in a blizzard for an engagement session! I would highly recommend Josh and all of his staff to my family and friends. Our family is still in aw over the pictures that he took!
I can't say enough about how much we loved working with Josh. In addition to our wedding photos, he did a beautiful job on our engagement photos and was so much fun to work with. He was professional and responsive throughout the entire process. I have no idea how he got some of the awesome shots he took at the reception because I don't recall actually seeing him even once - he was the opposite of the intrusive photographer you sometimes see at weddings. Can't imagine our day being documented any better. Josh is the best.
We love Josh!!!Reviewed on 11/02/2014 Alyssa O
My husband and I can not say enough wonderful things about Josh. Photography for our wedding was extremely important for us both so we took extra time and care when choosing our photographer. We could not have made a better choice! Josh was a pleasure to work with and made us both feel so comfortable and relaxed while taking pictures. Josh answered all our questions and emails promptly and took all the stress out of the logistics and preparation aspect of the day. And, as we expected, our pictures turned out absolutly amazing!!!!! We've gotten so many compliments on how beautiful they all are and how they capture the day perfectly. We would book Josh 100x over and would love to have the opportunity to work with him again!
Awesome PhotographerReviewed on 10/31/2014 Kelly D
I got married on one of the coldest days in October (at an outside venue of course lol). Josh was amazing!!! All the pictures were fantastic! Josh was great to work with! He kept both my husband and me laughing. He was just an absolute joy to work with. He helped keep us from focusing on the cold and was overall a fun person. I would recommend Josh Mariana Photography to anyone who would like to have amazing and talented photographers.

Josh Mariana PhotographyReviewed on 9/27/2014 Brianna O
We got married in the Fall season at a beautiful lodge. One of the most important things to me was capturing our day in photographs and the beautiful day we had! We choose Josh Mariana Photography and worked with both Josh and Jessie. They were fantastic! They had creative photo ideas and captured our day beautifully! We are so excited to get our photos and album from our wedding day! We also used Josh Mariana for our engagement photos. We wanted to include our dogs and we were traveling from out of town. Josh was flexible in scheduling our engagement session and was open to including our dogs in the session, which was important to us! We were so please with every aspect of working with Josh Mariana photography!
Memories CapturedReviewed on 9/25/2014 Leah H
My wife and I were/are very pleased with the work of Josh Mariana and his staff. Our wedding was filled with many details that were very unique to our personalities, and Josh seemed to capture them all. Upon receiving our photos, we were stunned at all of the moments they managed to capture without us ever knowing they were there to see it. They seemed to be everywhere at the right time, but were never pushy or in our faces. On top of that Josh was able to work within our budget, and we feel that among all of the expenses of the wedding this was certainly money well spent. We would feel confident recommending Josh to anyone looking for high quality photography.
Enjoyed working with JoshReviewed on 9/23/2014 Lindsay R
Josh was our photographer for our wedding in October 2013. He was great to work with and was very accommodating. The quality of the pictures and our wedding book are excellent! I would recommend Josh to anyone who is getting married!

Josh is so awesome and talented at what he does!!! He did an amazing job with everything from save the dates, engagement photos and our entire wedding day!!! I would highly recommend him.
FantasticReviewed on 9/15/2014
We hired Josh to be the photographer at our wedding and I am so happy that we did. Being the groom, photography was not the first priority on my list, but I quickly understood the photographer's critical role all the way from wedding planning to the big day. Josh was extremely responsive to us throughout the entire process. When we reached out to Josh via email or phone, he got back to us within the day. Josh was also very flexible with our schedules. When we had to re-schedule our engagement pictures due to weather, Josh was very easy to work with and it was clear he was making us a priority. From the engagement pictures, Josh made our "Save the Date," which we loved. We received so many compliments on the picture (photo magnet) and my friends and family continue to keep it on their fridge. The quality of the engagement pictures was very high and it was exciting to get great pictures right after our engagement. We used them for our wedding website and it made a difference utilizing the quality of Josh's work. During the wedding day, Josh was a calming figure to help lead the process before and after the ceremony. He was very organized and was able to capture the critical key moments. I was impressed with Josh's interaction with the wedding party and I appreciated his diligence in getting us through all the pictures after the ceremony. After the wedding, Josh was very accommodating with our requests and was able to turn around high quality pictures in a timely manner. My Dad bought a picture from the wedding printed by Josh of the family for my Mom's birthday. The quality of the photo was spectacular - it is definitely worth going through Josh for printing as the quality of the photo is unparalleled. We enjoyed working with Josh so much that we asked him to take family photos for my parent's 30th wedding anniversary. We will definitely use Josh in the future for photography and we are so glad we chose him for our wedding.
