If you want amazing photographers who see beyond the camera lens, look no further! We had the best experience working with this fabulous duo. They made our engagement pictures that were taken on the hottest day of the year, a breeze. They were...
with us every step of the way and demonstrated professionalism, passion for what they love to do and expertise. Juancho and Johana are wonderful to work with and they treat you as if they have known you for years. Their energy is contagious and I’m so glad they were with us capturing all the moments throughout our wedding. If you are looking for someone with creativity and talent, Juancho SC is a must!

The photos themselves are absolutely GORGEOUS!! We really liked the dramatic style of Juancho's photography and that's what we got. It was amazing to see the moments they were able to capture throughout the day and get to relive our wedding day every time we look through them. I couldn't be happier with everything about working with Juancho and Johana and now I'm just trying to figure out the next time we can work together!

Juancho and Johana were the perfect team to capture our wedding day. What I loved about them was how they made the photo shoot part of the day interactive and fun. As soon as they arrived, the day started getting exciting. They made everything ...
run smoothly when we got off the bus and went to the Lily pond for photos. I’ve been in weddings before where the photographers were less interactive and I felt that the photo shoot can be a bit boring and hard to get through. With them, it was fun as they were taking lots of candid shots in action of us and our wedding party. Once we got to the reception they got to work shooting the room and also did an amazing job capturing the ceremony, even though the room at Morgan’s on Fulton is not very well lit. We were super happy with how the photos turned out!

We initially found Juancho SC through a friend referral. We had done a few interviews via Zoom, but within 5 minutes of talking to Johana and Juancho, we were sold! Johana and Juancho bring such a fun, positive, passionate energy to their work....
I knew we were in good hands with them from the engagement shoot to scheduling all the details on the wedding day to answering our many many questions to finally shooting our wedding day over a year later. Not used to being photographed, we felt so comfortable with them both as they documented our most important day. We wanted our photographer to capture our wedding day as authentic, not too overly posed, but just natural documentation of the day - and that's exactly what we got! Plus, we had SO much fun hanging out with them on our photo shoots and this helped us feel more ourselves! I am beyond satisfied with the job Juancho SC did for our engagement shoot and wedding, I would highly recommend if you are looking for a skilled team of photographers who care about their clients and capture your most important moments. 10/10!

All I can say is wow! I had an issue with my original photographer and I had to find someone new late in the game. I asked around and so many people said to look into Juancho SC Photography. I was told they are the best and so fun to work with....
To say the least we were not disappointed. From the moment I reached out to them I knew they were going to be perfect. They are the sweetest, funniest and most attentive couple I ever met. From start to finish they make you feel like you are their only client.
If you are looking for a photographer please look no more they are the best EVER. I will always remember them from my wedding day that is how much of an impact they made on us.
I can never thank you both enough

Juancho photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and our engagement shoot. We chose them because they came highly recommended and respected. Their photos are amazing! When we met them we saw why. Juancho and Johana were...
so welcoming, high energy, and hit angles we didn’t even know we had! I even practiced my poses for them since I’ve never been a pictures person. They captured joy, love, and emotion, something you only read about. My wife and I felt natural chemistry with them, super professional, and communication was effortless. Not only were we impressed, but they stunned our friends and family. The care and details, made this one memorable experience. They are a rare fine and their work tells it all. We will recommend them to everyone. Thank you Juancho and Johana.

We are so happy we went with Juancho and Johana as our wedding day photographers for April '22. We were intrigued by their unique and natural style on their Instagram page and after meeting them in person, we knew we had to go with them. It was...
important for us to have a couple who loved what they did and had good energy. Their responses were always prompt and they just gave a genuine and warm first impression. We and our entire wedding party loved them!!!!! Juancho was with the ladies in the suite for bridal prep pictures and he was absolutely amazing. His energy was contagious and he kept us laughing the whole time. I have AMAZING pictures with my girls and my mom that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Our pictures from the entire day are beautiful and not posed looking and I love looking back on the entire album and reliving the day. They captured everything perfectly from start to finish, even down to special details and things I did not know even happened. We were a rowdy bunch on the dancefloor and they got some epic pictures of us all during the reception that truly captured the energy in the room. I was impressed with their patience and professionalism, and we definitely would not have been on time with things if it weren't for Juancho telling us when we should get dressed into PJs/bridesmaid dresses, etc. They helped make the day go by smoothly and stress free. Johana captured some incredible photos of me and my dad having a special moment before going down the aisle and dancing together and I am forever grateful. There were a lot of spontaneous moments that happened at our wedding that none of us were aware would happen (some back lifts by family, groom being lifted in the air, money dance) and I couldn't believe how on top of it they were! They were always ready to catch every moment. I saw them both multiple times throughout the night run to capture spontaneous moments. One minute they weren't there, the next there were LOL and I LOVED it because now I have life long memories that I get to keep forever. The turnaround time was also really fast. BOOK THEM!!! You won't regret it.

We absolutely LOVED Johana and Juancho and would highly recommend this team to anyone looking to capture their special moments!! From our very first introduction we knew they were the ones we wanted to work with for our wedding! Their energy, ...
connection with each other and their ability to capture love was something we had not seen. They were super responsive and thoughtful throughout our wedding planning (which included a Covid delay), and made sure our needs were always met.

Easily the best decision we made for our wedding! From our first Zoom meeting to our wedding day, Juancho and Johana created a comfortable and exciting atmosphere . For both our engagement photos and our entire wedding day, it was as if we were...
hanging out with friends who were able to capture every perfect moment. My husband and I didn't have any specific locations in mind for our engagement shoot or wedding photos, and they were able to recommend so many perfect spots that represented 'us' perfectly! My husband is notorious for not being able to smile on command, and I was worried our pictures would reflect that. Juancho and Johana made sure that this was not an issue at all. They made us feel so comfortable and calm that my husband has a genuine smile on his face in each picture!
Throughout the planning process many of our vendors asked who we had hired for photographers, from the moment we said Juancho and Johana, all of our vendors could not stop raving about how amazing they were and how the vendors were excited to see them at our wedding! We were so extremely happy with how both our engagement and wedding galleries turned out that we will never be able to pick our favorite photos, instead we have 800 favorite photos from our wedding day! From the beginning of our wedding day to the very end, they were constantly taking photos and capturing every moment of the day. Our guests even commented about how amazed they were that our photographers seemed to be everywhere capturing every single moment! At the end of our wedding night, we invited Juancho and Johana back to our reception to have a drink and hang out with us because we weren't ready to say goodbye to them! We will never forget our wedding day, and it is all because we hired Juancho and Johana to not only take extraordinary photos but because they helped make every part of our day perfect with their energy and excitement.

When we first started looking at photographers for our wedding, the one thing we stressed was finding someone who could take photos that you couldn't take on your iPhone, someone who could capture the moment in an unforgettable way. Juancho and...
Johana did just that and they were by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We cannot thank them enough. From our engagement photos to the last few shots, they were kind, careful, hilarious and most importantly, genuine. They took the time to get to know us as people, asked about our family life and what we were looking forward to as a couple so they could focus on capturing what mattered most to us...and they DELIVERED. When we got our photos back, I was stunned. They were absolutely perfect, so well thought out and exactly what we envisioned (and then some) - our wedding was a relaxed, fun event and every picture spoke to that vibe beautifully. I am so grateful that we had Juancho and Johana at our side the whole day - even when I was at my most nervous, they would give me a quick glimpse that would calm me down and remind me that this was OUR day. It says a lot to have vendors that not only support your vision but help bring out the best in you - Juancho and Johana definitely brought out the best in me and my new husband and there are not enough words to describe how amazing they are. The last-minute outdoor champagne shot that Juancho suggested to me on a whim is my favorite picture of all time, it's epic - that's the kind of thoughtfulness that will keep these two in my heart forever. Side note - they really are just great people to be around in general! You have to book Juancho and Johana for your wedding, I promise it's the best decision you will make for your big day.

This is way overdue! As a wedding professional myself, it is not an excuse, but to say wedding vendors are BUSY this year is a true understatement (Which it is why you should book incredible wedding vendors like these two ASAP - it is the best ...
advice I can give!)
I have been a Wedding Planner in Chicago for over 8 years, and to say I have worked with MANY photographers is an understatement. But when I became engaged in July 2020, the first vendor I knew I wanted for our wedding was Johana & Juancho with Juancho SC Photography! So when we we finally chose our Tennessee destination wedding venue & had our date confirmed, they were the first vendors we notified! Somehow the stars aligned and they were available for our date & willing to travel for our big day - it was a dream come true!
Juancho & Johana's talent is truly unmatched & are two people you want there on your wedding day! To start, the way they capture pure authentic moments to the photos you have pre-planned is just incredible! They made sure we had every photograph that we discussed beforehand, but when we went through our album, they captured moments with & without us that we will cherish forever - our parents'/grandparents' faces while we read our vows for example is one of my favorite photos + just melted our hearts.
Also, if you look at their instagram feed or their website, you will instantly be blown away by how creative they are with their photography and how vibrant their photos are (also read their captions - you can see just how passionate they are about their clients & their art)! Their photographs come to life, and it is something I have always admired about their work!
Now as if it couldn't get better... it does, because Juancho + Johana have the BEST personalities! They have the unique ability to make their clients feel so comfortable, and as if they had been friends for years! They are full of energy, incredibly positive, and make everyone feel so relaxed behind + in front of the camera! Also, they are always cracking jokes, so those "laughing" photos that are somewhat difficult to look real (you know what I am talking about), are so authentic because behind the lens are two of the funniest people you will ever meet! Our Wedding Party has told us many times just how much they loved Juancho + Johana and it really shows in our photos (I have a lot of friends getting engaged soon, and it is safe to say these two will have many future clients)!
I cannot thank Juancho + Johana enough for not only giving us the most beautiful wedding photos that we will cherish forever, but for being incredible people who truly care about their clients and their art - it shines through their work! They truly made our wedding day everything we hoped it would be, and so much more! I am forever grateful! xoxo Ashley Lytel

They were extremely easy and wonderful to work with; they were responsive, helpful (made suggestions for locations, and even venues when COVID got crazy) and so supportive, especially amongst the COVID chaos. We used them for both our engagement and wedding photos and have received nothing but "These are amazing!" and "You look so happy!". Additionally, they are very knowledgeable the the photo "rules" of Chicago - such as needing permits and timelines. They made photos efforts-less and stress free by helping plan the photo location timeline (based on how busy the city would be the day of our wedding and transportation time) and offering suggestions for a rain back up plan (which we did not need, yay!). I did not worry for a second if our photos would be anything but amazing - and if you are getting married, you know you do not need one more worry! If you are reading this, still reading this, hurry and book them now! These two are the TOTAL package!

hey are! They are true to the colours and emotions of the photos and have an artistic and vivid editing style. Their photos are truly out of this world and captured our love so perfectly. Aside from that, the entire experience from day 1 was perfect. When I reached out to inquire, Juancho called me right away and had a conversation with me just getting to know me and what our vision was. He and Johana then scheduled a zoom call with us (thanks to COVID) to get to know both me and my fiancé. They provided us different package options for engagement shoot vs. engagement + wedding, with optional add ons including albums and canvases. We then scheduled a date for our shoot. Going into it, I was excited and a bit nervous, and my fiancé was especially nervous as he doesn’t love posing for photos. Little did I know that we had nothing to worry about! They had provided us with tips beforehand, and then on the day of, they were both so carefree and relaxed that it put us completely at ease! They directed us in how to start our poses without making us feel like mannequins or stiff at all- they allowed for our natural personalities to take over and captured the most beautiful photos. We got our photos SO fast, and in the end they had us view our photos in their home theatre studio, in the format of a slideshow over wine and cheese. We are so grateful to have met Juancho and Johana, who are now not just our photographers but also friends, and for this to be the first big step in our wedding plan ning process!

We had several meetings with other photographers and no one compared to Juancho SC Photography. Although they are incredibly professional, working with them instantly made us feel at ease and as if we had known Juancho and Johana for a very long time. Juancho led the creative direction while Johana handled the business side of things and planning for the day-of. Both are excellent photographers. They are a great team and even better couple. Their talent is breathtaking! It was important to us that we had a range of photograph styles from striking, vivid images, to stunning black and white images; from excellent group shots to thoughtful candid moments no one would think to capture but tells the story perfectly. We love their signature photograph the most: the ones that add an extra layer of light splashing the image or the ones that bring the foreground in and out of focus at the same time.
We review our engagement and wedding photo albums all the time, always finding a new favorite image. The precious moments they’ve captures via still images feel like live video that take us right back to the feeling of each moment. We couldn’t be more thrilled that we hired them for our wedding and look forward to working with them again in the future as our family grows.

This year was not the year we had hoped it would be, nor was our wedding the day we had planned it to be. But when it came time to decide whether or not we would post pone our original wedding day, we knew we still wanted to get married. Before...
making the decision of whether or not we should postpone we reached out to Juancho and Johana to see if they were available. Fortunately, they were and were extremely quick to respond to our inquiry submission.
Being an event coordinator, I was able to experience them first hand and see what amazing work they did. I have seen Juancho run from point A to point B get on the floor stand on a chair.. basically doing whatever it takes to get the shot. Seeing their art work, I should their work to my now husband and said that if we were going to postpone, Juancho and Johana were the photographers we needed to work with. They are the ones to bring our fairytale wedding to life. And to be honest, they did just that.
This duo team is not just any team, they are a couple of whom show their love to one another regardless of how stressful a day could get. They share their story with everyone on social media, and their story is exactly as it is perceived in real life, and nothing is more comforting than seeing that on your wedding day. When having to make a decision of whether or not to postpone, or if we were packing too much into our schedule on the day of... they never pressured us to make a decision we weren't 100% on. They encouraged us, and gave us insight based on their experience. Their advice goes a long way!
On the day of the wedding, they arrived early to prep, and stayed a bit later because our ceremony was running late due to technical difficulties to ensure that we got ALL of the shots we wanted. With all of the nerves that you feel on the day of, Johana and Juancho made not only my type A self feel comfortable to let my guard down, but also my crazy family and bridal party. We have never taken photos like this for any weddings before and this was our first experience with any photographer. We never felt more comfortable or laughed as hard naturally as we had on the day of.
For our wedding day, we decided to live stream our big day to our family and friends so that we were able to ensure that everyone got to be a part of our day from a safe distance. My reason for bringing this up is because when we watched back the livestream the next day... you could see Juancho going from side to side, up, down, left, right, and our entire family was pretty sure at one point he was considering jumping into the fountain behind him to get a shot. All in all, you can not find a better team anywhere else. We had a gallery viewing party just as they recommended and it was the best experience we could've ever had. We spent HOURS looking at our wedding photos and had to share them over and over with our family and friends.
We highly recommend booking Juancho SC Photography for your special day, they are amazing at their craft and you will never have to worry for a second of whether or not they got the shot... because most likely Juancho has gotten from 4 different angles. :) We can't wait to book them for other events in the future!

Juancho went along with all of our ideas, including our sunrise engagement photos in the bitter cold (which he had never done before and is, admittedly, a bit of a night owl). My husband and I are not super photogenic people, and they caught every good angle and every special moment without feeling intrusive or overwhelming. They also don't skimp on any detail. Johana called a few days before our wedding, just to check in with me and see how I was feeling.

We wanted a photographer that was able to capture the small moments of the day organically, which they accomplished with such ease, and every time we look at our photos (both engagement and wedding), we are immediately taken back to that exact moment in time and we are overwhelmed with all the happy and loving memories and emotions from the day. They truly captured the essence of us, our family, our friends, and the intimate vibe of our wedding day, and we can’t thank them enough for the talent, creativity, and passion they put into their work. What stands out even more is the added touches of photographic flair they were able to achieve with certain shots (unique perspectives, fun lighting, playing with mirrors/shadows, use of prisms for reflection) that left us in awe, and brought such an artistic vision to some of our favorite photos!
Outside of the actual photography, Juancho & Johana were also wonderful communicators - promptly responding to emails, providing photo location suggestions, and giving wonderful direction and feedback during picture taking to ensure we got the BEST photos possible (slight movement of face to be in the best light, etc). Even more important was their ability to keep our entire family and wedding party ON SCHEDULE the day of our wedding - easily getting all the pictures we needed and wanted before the ceremony, and getting us to our venue with enough time to relax a bit before the ceremony. On a day that is filled with anxiety and hard timelines to ensure we got to all photo locations before our ceremony, Juancho & Johana achieved such operational efficiency and our entire wedding day went so smooth and perfect!
There is no other photographer we would consider above Juancho & Johana for any future photo needs (newborn photos, anniversary photos, etc), and any newly engaged couples would be so lucky to be able to work with them on their wedding day! We cannot thank them enough for everything - they are simply the best! <3

Juancho and Johana are a DREAM. I knew I loved their style when I saw them on instagram. I knew we weren't going to get boring, cookie-cutter photos. When we met in person, we were immediately made to feel like we were old friends. They asked a...
ll about our relationship, our family, who were are as people, etc. They wanted to get to know us and be able to capture our day authentically. I knew we had to hire them.
We did an engagement shoot to make sure that nervous/awkward me would get some practice in front of the camera. Despite my nerves and feeling cold (we took photos in the snow), I knew the photos were going to amazing based on how beautifully Johana and Juancho worked together. The photos were so amazing, I didn't know how the wedding photos could top them. Spoiler alert... they did!!!!
On the wedding day, Juancho and Johana brought an infectious energy into the room as soon as they entered. They made everyone feel at ease as well as excited! While I have been in weddings where a lot of the moments felt staged, I never felt that way on my wedding day. Every moment felt natural and nothing felt forced.
The photos are the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. There is literally no bad shot. Every photo was different and interesting and artistic and also full of emotion and love. It was basically impossible to narrow it down for an album. Juancho and Johana are not just supremely talented, but they put so much thought and care into what they do. I feel so lucky they captured our wedding day. If I could give advice to someone planning a wedding, I would make Juancho and Johana the first call.

ted look compared to any other photographer out there. Most photographers have the overdone "natural/subdued" type look to their photos but Juancho/Johana's are full of color and extremely vibrant, which is exactly what I was looking for. Their portraits are absolutely stunning and black & white photos are jaw dropping. I loved that they feature tons of black & white photos in their galleries/social media as most photographers I noticed don't feature any at all, and I love the emotion behind b&w photos. Juancho & Johana also stay up to date on the latest photography techniques by traveling to classes overseas in Europe working with the most talented teachers/mentors (I saw this on their instagram story and was stunned, you really get what you pay for with their talent). What really sealed the deal was that they took the time to invite us to their studio and meet in person to get to know us without us even requesting it and before we even booked them! We spent HOURS talking and vibing and they made us feel like we had known each other for years. I love that they wanted to make sure we felt completely comfortable with them before we made any decision about booking. At their studio they had several beautiful wedding albums to show us and took their time to answer any questions we had. You can tell they truly care about their clients and put their all into their work. You will not regret working with them!

Johana and Juancho are the perfect pair. They are organized, responsive and they set expectations extremely well. They kept the POSITIVE energy up the entire day. Positivity and passion are so important on the day of your wedding. They kept it fun (and hilarious) while wrangling a bride and groom and their entire wedding party with ease. We have every important moment captured from multiple angles.

he wedding party and able to witness first hand their level of professionalism, friendliness, and general ability to put everyone in the bridal party at ease. That was really important to me, and even more important was the quality and diversity of the photos. I also wanted to be sure to find photographers who knew how to properly take photos of people of different shades since my husband and I are an interracial couple and had family and friends of different races and skin tones in our bridal party and at our wedding more broadly. They did not disappoint (which I had already gleaned from my friend's photos and photos on their site)! I was in awe of my friend's photos and the beautiful final wedding album they created for her.
From the start of our inquiry for our own wedding and engagement photos, Johana and Juancho were friendly, responsive, accommodating, and professional. I am so glad we did engagement photos with them because they turned out beautifully and allowed both me and my husband to get used to taking hundreds of photos in public! Their energy is infectious and within about 10 minutes of starting our engagement session in the middle of downtown Chicago, we forgot about (and kind of enjoyed!) all the people watching. We received those photos and our wedding photos on a very timely basis, despite what I know is a busy season for them. On the day of our (very hot) wedding, they were everywhere they were supposed to be and I never had to think about whether the photos were covered. That was huge because the less you can think about on the day of, the better. They were so outgoing and made our whole bridal party feel comfortable and excited.
Our wedding photos and final albums for us and our parents came out beautifully and the process to choose the photos was straightforward and easy. I changed my mind on some of the order and color (black & white or color) of the photos, and Johana happily made any adjustments I requested before producing the final album. We are so grateful to them for helping us capture the most important day of our lives and truly capturing the love that radiated between us, our family, and friends. For something as important as your wedding photos, I would strongly recommend going with a sure bet, even if it means cutting back your budget for other elements - and for us, that's exactly what they were. They are genuinely fun, outgoing, and warm people who truly love what they do, and it shows. Thank you again for everything!!

Brides Beware of Juancho SC Photography. Their Instagram account and website are deceiving. They will give you only a handful of these “artistic” photos, the rest of the photos you receive will not look like what they advertise.
To start: My ...
husband and I paid $4500 for an "8 hour" session with Juancho and his wife Johana. I only received 700 photos of our entire wedding day. On average all of my friends (who had been married or married since) had around 1500-2000 photos from their single photographer. I figured with two photographers I would have had more from our special day. When I requested numerous times for the rest of my photos my answer was “these are the photos that made it to the finals.” Yet my contract said I would received all photos from our wedding day.
The Bad and the Ugly:
I do not have one photo with my entire family. I have only 4 photos total of my nieces from the day of our wedding and not one of me with them. I have maybe 15 random photos of guests. Only 1 photo of me in my wedding dress with just my mom. Not one photo of just me and my father- only a distant one of us walking down the aisle. They took about 30 pictures of me with my dogs and only gave me 4 which was important to me because my dogs are very old and I wanted these memories with them. NOT ONE of me alone showing my whole wedding dress head to toe- they have my dress cut off at my waist in almost every photo. No photos of our buffet or any from the dining portion of our wedding. None of the exterior of the Yacht which was our wedding venue (they said they forgot), the list goes on and on.
After I tried requesting my photos many times, my husband called Juancho asking for our photos. There were specific ones we remember taking but his answer was “no, we gave you what we gave you” and that was where Juancho left it.
A few weeks later, my make-up artist posted a handful of our photos on her website without our permission. Photos she never should have had access to. Turns out Juancho & Johana gave her our password to access to our private web portfolio and let her use our photos for advertising, which our contract specifically states says they cannot do.
I had to hire a lawyer and so far I have spent thousands of dollars on legal fees to try and get the rest of our wedding photographs. It is now almost 1 year later and they have refused to give us any more. I believe they have disposed of the rest of our photos and we will never see them.
1. Juancho is very high strung, he is very loud and hyper, and constantly yelling and making everyone feel nervous. He would scream “Erica No, Erica No, Erica No” every time he thought I wasn’t making the facial expression he liked. When he would take a “good” photo of me, he would show me it and say “wow, Juancho did a good job on this photo” patting himself on the back, it was awkward.
2. Editing. None of our photos were edited. So brides if you have blemishes they will show. They use a scenic lens which blurs your face or if it’s close up it has a lot of structure which will enhance any flaws. I have very good completion yet every photo looks like I have bumps all over my face.
3. Juancho takes photos from a low angle, if you do not have a double chin on the day of your wedding you will now.
If you are looking for an Exceptional Wedding Photographer in Chicago, please do not let Juancho SC Photography ruin your magical day!

We heard of Juancho SC Photography through a friend along with a few other recommendations. After Skyping with Juancho and Johana, we knew they would be the team to go with! We had only spoken to one other photographer, but felt strongly that ...
they were a fantastic choice and they proved us right!!! They clearly LOVE what they do and that shines through in all of their work. We are so happy with the photos that we will get to cherish for the rest of our lives. My best friend's description of one of the photos pretty much sums it up: "I think I saw this as the stock photo in the picture frames the other day at Bed Bath and Beyond. So beautiful and perfect!!!"
Not only is the quality of their work top notch, J&J are also amazingly fun, entertaining, and wonderful to work with - we, and all our wedding party, had so much fun spending the day with them!
All in all, we would highly recommend Juancho SC Photography to anyone looking for wedding photography!

They are one of the BEST decisions that we made when planning our wedding. I cannot stop talking about how organized, genuine, and talented this couple is. They went out of the way to make sure that I felt special throughout the entire process as an out-of-state bride. At one point, they called me from Brazil just to make sure that I felt confident about our location choices! Honestly, you must choose them as your photographers for your wedding day; you won't regret it. They do not only take remarkable photos, but they help to create beautiful memories that you will remember for the rest of your lives. I am so grateful for them and blessed to have met such beautiful people.

By the time we were done with our initial photo shoot, my now wife and I both felt as though we had gained two wonderful friends. They were both great since the day we met them and truly brought our wedding to life.
You spend so much time, money and energy into your wedding you want to have something tangible and durable to hold on to from that day. From the engagement session, through the wedding, Juancho SC Photography proved they were the best of the best in the business! We're pleased to admit that our living room at home is surrounded with images taken by both of them, and when our friends and family come over, they always rave about them.
If your goal is to capture the most amazing moments possible, you must absolutely go with Juancho SC Photography. I will never let any of our friends and family use anyone else!
Juancho & Johana, THANK YOU for capturing all the incredible moments of our special day, all the while making all of our family and friends (including us) feel comfortable in the process. You guys are truly a remarkable team and a pair of highly talented professionals.

Juancho will keep you smiling with all his spunk and Johana will give you every model trick you need to look fabulous in photos. They are extremely quick to respond to any questions I had and more than willing to help with anything they could. You can tell how much they care and want your day to be special. With some wedding vendors your wedding is just a paycheck, but with these two your wedding is their passion. We just got our wedding photos back and they are stunning…I’ve never felt so vain in my life, but I can’t stop starring at how beautiful they are. You can read all of the reviews on how amazing this team is, but their portfolio speaks for itself. Your wedding day goes by too fast and there is no better way to capture the day than through beautiful photography. I cannot stress enough that you need to book Juancho Sc Photography- they were the first vendor we booked and it was the best decision we made.

e moment of significance and making it forever timeless. I spent many weeks looking through portfolios of many Photographers and viewed a plethora of photos; they all started looking the same to me, and I got tired of clicking on each of the Photographers' profiles. I decided to just skim through many pages of profile pictures, until I came across Juancho's profile picture: an engagement picture of a couple laughing in a field of yellow flowers. It definitely caught my attention - the photo was emotionally genuine and left a lasting impact in my mind. I was definitely more interested when I saw more photos on Juancho's own website. I was AMAZED by his portfolio. I thought to myself - this guy has natural talent in expressing his own unique style of visualization; his photos explain themselves; it's as if he weren't there taking them. When I finally met with Juancho & Johana, it solidified my decision. Juancho's personality is full of energy and enthusiasm, and it clearly shows how much he loves what he does; Johana is absolutely beautiful, calm and balanced, and creative with her ideas, which makes these two a dynamic duo to the whole process. No wonder their photos turn out cohesively and amazing the way they do. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JUANCHO SC PHOTOGRAPHY!!! They went above and beyond in my expectations; I absolutely fell in love with the engagement photos and wanted all!! I also love our wedding pictures and album! Thank you Juancho and Johana for capturing moments from our special day with unforgettable photos that will last a lifetime!!
