John did a fantastic job captuuring all of the highlights of our day. From the very beginning, months and months before our wedding, we were always able to count on him. He was very attentive to any and all concerns prior to, during and after the wedding. John was alway quick to respond to my many emails along the way. He was easy to work with and comfortable to be around. He was very understanding when I showed up to the church almost an hour after I had told him to start. Some of our guests even mentioned to us that he was "always there, but never in the way" -exactly what you want form a photographer. All of out photos were outstanding!! I know they could not have been any better if we had chosen a photographer charging double, or more!

Make your day MORE special!

John is not only a great and dedicated photographer but his uplifting spirit and big heart makes your day brighter and more special.

A wedding is such a personal and special day and all preparations should be that way.
He will surely make your wish all come true.

Thank you John!!

Chloe's Bat Mitzvah May 10, 2008

Dear John, I wanted to thank you for the tremendous job you did in photographing Chloe's Bat Mitzvah. I received many compliments from my guests on how charming and professional you were. I appreciated your patience during the formal shots at the temple before the service and afterwards getting the whole family together. Not only were you easy to work with, but the pictures you took are absolutely beautiful! I love the candid shots at the reception especially the fashion show! You captured the entire event so completely. I can't believe how many picture you took. It is going to be hard for me to decide which ones to enlarge, there are so many wonderful shots. I would highly recommend you to all my friends and family if they need a photographer. You delivered everything that you promised to us and more. Thank you for capturing this wonderful day for our family with the beautiful photographs. They will provide us with a lifetime of fond memories. Warm Regards, Fran Krauss

Happy as a clam by John's photography!

John just photographed my wedding this past weekend...and I am happy. He was easy to work with, very accommodating, flexible, laughable, and low-key. My family and friends all commented on how nice and flexible he was--even with the demands of a large family to take pictures like crazy. He gave advice when we asked and took charge when we were chaotic! He really is inconspicuous that you never know when he is around but the pictures are there! I never felt uncomfortable or rushed or any of the sort. It is a great value...and the next time I need pictures...perhaps children...I know where to go for great photography...even if I have to drive up to Camarillo! Many happy thanks and we're glad that you enjoyed the wedding...and that you got to eat...we wish you could have tried the ice cream!

Blown away by John's work!!!!

Just viewed or pictures from our recent wedding and and we are very impressed. John has a great eye. He captured our wedding in a variety of styles and angles and we are more than pleased with his work. He really knows how to work his camera!!
In addition, John was easy to work with, he was very flexible, and accomadating. He left an impression on most of our guests. We recieved many comments stating how fun and approachable John was.
I higly recommend John, and would not hesitate to use him for other events.

John was a great photographer. He was able to get all of the real candid shots and that’s what I was really looking for. When ever anyone looks at out photos they say what great shots they were and how he seemed to be everywhere at once. He even got me falling on the dance floor which was classic. He has a great eye and exactly what we were looking for. His prices are great which really helped us out and with the price you not skimping on the quality. Thanks again John for working with us it was a pleasure.

Best Wedding Photographer Ever! Great Deal!

John Park is Wonderful!
I grew up in a large family and all my brothers and sisters got married before me and spent a fortune on their photographers, but I went for a more inexpensive photographer, little did I know I was getting the best photographer of all the weddings! John is great! He took all the shots I wanted and so much more! After the crazy Whoorlwind of the wedding I could actually remember all the things that happened because he captured it all!
I could not have asked for a better photographer! He did it all!
God Bless you John! You are awesome!

Everything Delivered as Promised... John Park is great!

John Park is an excellent photographer!!! Great sense of humor and fits in with any crowd. This guy is awesome from our first meeting with him we knew he had it all together. We would highly recommend hiring John to anyone... Everything was delivered as promised!

Thanks so much! Our pictures were awesome and the price was so reasonable. You can tell he enjoys photography... our albums were definitely a work of art.

Great service!!!!

John is a wonderful photographer. He is easily accessible through email and will answer any questions or concerns prior to your wedding date. I was amazed at the shots he captured on film, especially of our parish. His pictures were comprehensive although he was inobtrusive. We will definitely recommend him to anyone planning a wedding in the future!
