KIND WORDS We loved our experience with JD! He met us in South Carolina (even though he is based out of Texas) to shoot in a location neither of us were familiar with. JD took the time to explore the area and find the most beautiful settings to shoot (so far and above what he needed to do). He made the experience so much fun despite a few obstacles with security guards and parking ticketers :) (none of which we could control but he handled with complete ease!) He is an extremely talented photographer, who makes his clients’ personalities shine through his photography. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone! We are SO excited for him to shoot our wedding in July! Seriously, he’s awesome! Hiring JD was absolutely the best choice we made throughout the whole wedding planning process. We searched and searched online and just kept coming back to him because his photos were so natural and artistic. He was the only photographer we met with because the moment we met him, we knew he’d be a joy to work with. Throughout the entire process of planning engagement and wedding photos, he was incredibly responsive, fast, and friendly. I gave him a very vague description of what we wanted for our engagement photos, and he managed to capture our vision absolutely perfectly. At our wedding, he was fantastic about taking initiative to find and photograph all the little details (my shoes, my jewelry, the bridesmaids’ dresses, etc.) and about gently and politely corralling us for group photos. He knew we wanted to minimize the number of posed photos, and did a wonderful job of capturing those we wanted in the quickest time possible. He also helped coach me through the possibility of rain ahead of time, and the rainy weather on the wedding day. Our wedding was just last Saturday and we already got a preview. The photos are absolutely stunning. I can’t stop looking at them. Everyone who has seen them has said how beautiful they are and My husband and I feel so blessed to have met such an amazing photographer for our wedding in January. After talking to many photographers and searching online I realized there was something so unique about JD’s photography that we felt compelled to at least try him out for our engagement photos! My husband and I are very non photogentic so we were super excited and nervous for the photoshoot!! JD made us feel absolutely relaxed, he was a pleasure to be around and an easy going pro...we had to have him at our wedding. During the planning process JD was extremely dependable and always had an answer. At the wedding, JD and his assistant were so much fun and blended in so well. They were very helpful to create ease throughout the day and they were on time. I do not know how JD got the shots that he did but we were speechless when the photos came back quickly after our honeymoon in such a sweet little package... even better, JD provided a sneak preview the day after the wedding!! That was such a nice piece to have during the honeymoon because as we all know, the big day goes by so fast! The photos were stunning and priceless. I would highly recommend JD for any photoshoot. I hope to use him again soon! :) He is seriously unreal to work with! Super professional, but really personable. He clearly has a gift and knows what he is doing. We felt very comfortable and thought of through the whole experience and are so thankful to have found such a great photographer! We found JD through googling Austin area photographers and then through the knot. We recently shot our engagements and are super excited for him to do our wedding as well. He made the whole experience easy and let us, be us. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! how perfectly they capture us as a couple. I honestly am happier with both our engagement and wedding photos than I ever imagined I could be! 2017-2018 WEDDING GUIDE | 7
