Who We Are
Casual, Effortless, Elegant Wedding Photography
I’m John, and I am a photographer residing in Michigan and working throughout the Midwest.
I grew up in Northeast Ohio, in a steel town of 100,000 people. I’ve always enjoyed music and art, and my serious interest in photography began overseas in Seoul, South Korea.
Seoul is a city of 25,000,000 people – a far cry from home, to be sure! – and the energy of the city and its people were fascinating to me. I wanted to capture the unfamiliar beauty of the life and the rhythms of Korea to share with friends and family, to give them a glimpse of its unique charm. With so many opportunities and subjects to explore, it was easy to learn how to take pictures, while having fun at the same time.
When I returned to the United States, my interest and learning continued. Soon, I began to get requests: “Your pictures are so beautiful! Can you just take a few shots of me/us/my new baby..?” Although I was a little surprised by the recognition and nervous about the responsibility, the projects went well, and I found that I really enjoyed the immediate and personal connection that my camera afforded me.
So much so, in fact, that I was happy to accept when I was asked to shoot a wedding … which led to another wedding … and another … and here we are.
