Super Photographer!!

Notice: I will book budget photography jobs per request. I am retired from photography. Please ignore my package/pricing. I will only take budget customers per request. I served Ventura County for over a decade. I have photographed hundreds of weddings. Email me: (home at venturaphoto dot com).

* If you have a normal budget, I am not a photographer for you. And PLEASE, I will not work for free. Expect to pay something. It takes me 5 hours just to get ready.

John was the photographer for our daughter's August 6th wedding at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, and he played such a big part in making it a very memorable day! He was amazing!!

When I found John's website earlier this year, I thought it almost sounded too good to be true. How could he offer so much for such a great price? After speaking with a couple other photographers and getting estimates that were over twice what John quotes on his site (and John's photo package offered us more than the others), I made an appointment with him. He brought along sample photos, albums and even his camera equipment. I was very impressed and decided to book him.

One thing that was very reassuring was that John stayed in touch with me over months so that I had one less thing to worry about. He would always answer my emails right away. As the day of the wedding got closer, he made sure that everything was arranged, and on August 6th, he was at the site exactly when he said he would be.

From that point, we were all amazed at how John seemed to be everywhere during the day -- from before the ceremony when the preparations were being made to the very end when things were wrapping up. He got it all in his photos. I especially liked that, in addition to the great formal shots, he got some wonderful candid photos and didn't forget the details of the table settings, the bouquets, etc. He said to us that when we wanted a photo taken, to just ask him, and he was willing to stay as long as we were there!

Everyone loved John, and he was so easy to work with. I know now that all the great comments that you read on this site are true.

We received our photos so fast, and they are terrific! They will be displayed on this website soon, so I hope you can take a look at them.

I will be posting our high recommendation for John on other sites, too. We know what a huge challenge it is to put a wedding together and to try to stay within some kind of budget -- he helped us accomplish that.

Thanks again, John!
