Miranda + HEnry

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.



Christina + Matthew

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.




Laura + Andrew

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO WE RESERVE A DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR?

To be locked & loaded on our calendar, all you have to do is confirm the day with a $1,000 deposit + signed contract. We will schedule a meeting before that stage to get to know each other more.

DO YOU HELP IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?

Yes. This is one of my best strengths and one of the main ways we serve our couples. We are great of thinking through logistics, and have done this whole wedding dance a million times. We will be on your team from day one.

Vendor recommendations, unique detail discussions, and a well thought thorough timeline that ensures your day goes smoothly, with ample time to spend with your friends and family.

DO YOU SHOOT ANYTHING ELSE?

Of Course! We’re capturing all of the wedding-related events...engagements, rehearsals, etc... along with family, senior photos, in-home shoot, branding, lifestyle and real estate.

WHAT MAKES YOU GUYS DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE?

#1 From first glance, you can tell our edits & posing don’t blend in with most. We aren't afraid of bright colors, unconventional locations, or experimenting with new concepts or ideas. Wheter I photograph your wedding or your friends wedding, the photos should look different and unique to you.
#2 We're fun people. A lot of couples don't realize it when planning a wedding, but you're with your photographer more than almost anyone else on your wedding day. You want someone with a personality you connect with who is ready to celebrate with you two and your friends.
#3 Most people in this industry only have between 0-2 years of experience. We have been doing this professionally for 19 years. This isn't a hobby for us, our investment into your day is not casual. We’re extremely experienced and you can trust us.

THIS GUY ONLINE SAID HE WOULD SHOOT IT FOR $1,000...

It may seem like a good idea at the moment to take the bargain, but TRUST US it isn’t! Get a professional with multiple years of experience. You may not think photos matter that much to you right now, or that whoever will do a “good enough” job. But hear us when we say, get the photographer you really want. If you don't believe us, google it. It's people's number one regret when it comes to wedding planning. Having an experienced photographer will help make your day so much more peaceful and relaxed.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE? BACKUPS?

Yes. Liability insurance is a must for any professional photographer.
And yes, we got you. We’re showing up to your wedding with over 40K in gear, meaning we’ve got backups for our backups.

CAMERA SHY?

Not to many feel comfortable in front of a camera. Trust me, you aren’t alone. But don’t worry, I am known for making my clients feel relaxed and have fun during the wedding.

My goal is for your photos to feel like YOU. We will bring out what makes you you in order to get the photos that capture you well. We are there to help guide both of you step by step through flattering & authentic poses while you forget you ever felt nervous to begin with.
