We love John! He is so easy to work with and most importantly, he takes stunning images. We knew we’d hired the best photographer when all (literally all) of our other vendors knew John and highly recommend him. John’s dedication to making sure you look great in your images is truly above and beyond. He proved his dedication at our August wedding that was in a room without air-conditioning when it was extremely hot and humid. John literally laid on the floor more than a handful of times to get the perfect shot. We were also amazed that he sent us about a dozen preview images the day after our wedding. When he sent us the rest of our images, they were so beautiful that it took us almost a year to decide which images we wanted in our album. John is truly the best wedding photographer.
John is an absolute blast to work with. From the engagement session to the wedding day all the way to the thank you notes, we didn’t have to worry about a single thing. He made all of the planning and meet-ups beforehand so easy.
When it came to the big day, he kept the mood and tone light but professional. If he snapped an awesome shot, he would show you immediately on his camera, and that made it even more exciting. He would find the coolest angles and wouldn’t stop trying until he got the best possible shot. Even walking away from prior photo locations, he found unconventional shots that made for memorable photos.
I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
It was an absolute pleasure working with John Richmond Photography for our wedding. John was very professional, thorough and captured all the moments we wanted to remember. He is very easy going and relaxed which we really appreciated leading up to our big day. His photos are nothing less than stunning and we couldn’t be happier. Would highly recommend him for any of your photography needs.
