Joss did a fantastic job on very short notice. He was professional, courteous, and creative. We love the finished results.
My husband and I are teachers, which means we are perpetually on a budget, and one of the first things my married friends told me to research was wedding photographers. These days, if you don't get a good wedding photographer, it's like you didn't get married! But where were we going to find a quality photographer within our budget? Enter Joss.
Upon perusing Joss's portfolio, we realized we loved the look and feel of his photos. His photos seemed to capture simple beauty and timelessness so effortlessly. We were so pleased when we found that Joss was able to offer us an engagement and wedding photo package that was within our budget.
Since neither my husband nor I like to brave the elements for those outdoorsy photos, and since I appreciate the look and grandeur of SF City Hall, we decided to go there for engagement shoot as Joss seemed to have had a lot of experience capturing photos there. Joss was professional, easy-to-work-with, and flexible. He put us at ease and found gorgeous nooks and crannies throughout the building to take some amazing photos. He also got some pretty iconic shots, and despite the general busyness and crowds at City Hall, was able to capture some moments of just the two of us. He sent us gorgeously edited photos as well as all of the raw photos very shortly after the engagement shoot, and we were able to incorporate them in our wedding website and project them at our venue on our wedding day prior to the ceremony.
On our wedding day, Joss was just as professional and just as devoted to his craft and vision. My husband and I are probably the most unhelpful couple with no ideas or suggestions as to where to take photos, and Joss was able to capture the magic of the day and all of those special moments and details regardless (he does have a photographer's eye, after all!). We did discuss a shot list prior to the big day, along with a list of group photos we wanted to capture, and Joss was able to do that plus much, much more.
Joss has an eye for capturing light, beauty, joy, and details in the most magical way. We just received our wedding photos and just so, so pleased with how they have turned out! Joss was able to capture our special day so wonderfully and so beautifully, and we truly could not be more grateful. We have gotten numerous compliments on all the photos we have shared with family and friends. The composition of some of the photos is just incredible!
Joss was such a pleasure to work with, always calm and always professional. His work ethic is amazing, and we witnessed first-hand how hard he works to be able to capture those perfect moments. We love him, and we highly recommend him!!
Joss is Amazing !
One of our best wedding decisions was choosing Joss as our photographer! What can I say other than perfection!
He captures everything he shoot so beautifully, every little detail. His photography is a true art! Our friends and family are all saying how beautiful our pictures turned out.
He focused so much of their time with so much energy, and attention on us bride and groom! Joss takes amazing, artistic shots. He really has a great eye for setting up light sources and I love how he incorporates the use of local architecture and surroundings to add to his innate style. He knew when to take us outside for some amazing shots that we are in love with now!
I could have never asked for a better photographer and I am so thankful that my ONE special day was captured so beautiful by Joss! Thank you, Joss, you truly rock!!
We hired Joss to take our engagement photos. We picked the location for the shoot and Joss did a great job using the light and scenery there. We are really happy with our photos.
