Who We Are
Casual, Effortless, Elegant Wedding Photography
I’m John, and I am a photographer living in the San Francisco Bay Area, shooting weddings here in Northern California, in the Midwest, and beyond.
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.
The energy of Seoul and its 25,000,000 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.
