John photographed my wedding last spring.  He came very highly reviewed from our wedding coordinator... And he exceeded my lofty exceptionalness!

John spent a lot of time getting to know my wife and I before the ceremony (met for drinks, exchanged multiple phone calls and emails, and spent an entire afternoon together taking engagement photos and talking about expectations for the wedding).  At the time, I didn't realize how important getting to know each other would be, but pre and post wedding pictures end up being really intimate.  I can't imagine having a stranger there with my wife and I while taking the photos.  By then I felt like John was a friend, and I was glad to have him there with us.

John is a very talented photographer, and I love our photos.  Not only did John's photos come out spectacularly, but he was also a calming and organizing voice during all of the pre and post wedding madness.   Between family, vendors, and guests there is a lot that goes into a wedding.  John was instrumental in making our wedding run smoothly.   He did an amazing job of getting both formal and candid pictures.  His photos did a great job of telling the story of our wedding.

We hired John after he was recommended by our wedding planner.  From start to finish he was friendly, attentive, and very responsive.  He replied to all my questions promptly, tailored the shoots to our vision, his website works PERFECTLY (payments, photos, everything was easy and quick), and he was lighting fast with both the engagement and wedding photos.  Our wedding seemed to go by so fast, the very next day it just seemed like a happy blur.  When I got the pictures, I spent HOURS laughing, crying, and truly enjoying more moments from the wedding than I'd been able to do on the actual day.  He did a BEAUTIFUL job, and the memories he captured have added so much to our special day for me.  I cannot recommend him highly enough!

John is so professional and makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. He captured beautiful moments at our wedding that will last a lifetime. We worked with John long distance as we were planning a destination wedding. His positive energy made him one of the best vendors to work with throughout the planning experience. I highly recommend John to anyone looking for a seasoned photographer in the San Diego area and beyond.

We loved working with John. He is a talented photographer, capable of capturing the best moments without disturbing the action. He is respectful of the clients' requests, however specific they might be. Also, he is a super nice guy. Thank you for your wonderful work, John!

John captured our wedding day so perfectly. His images tell a story and allow us to relive our wedding day over and over. As a bride, you want to feel comfortable on your wedding day, and John is so easy to be around. Can't thank him enough for working so well with us and our family that day. Can't wait to hire him again to capture other life milestones. Thanks John!

John is an amazing photographer! I cannot recommend him enough.
I reached out to him through his website and he emailed us right away to schedule a telephone conference. Everything (payments, pictures, etc.) is done through his website—when planning a wedding and trying to keep track of a lot of different payments, it makes life so much easier.
John is truly an artist and is extremely professional. We received our wedding pictures in 10 DAYS!! They are all so beautiful. Family and friends keep saying how amazing our photos are; that they “belong in a magazine.” They truly do.

Thank you John!!

Next Level! John of John Schnack Photography was everything we hoped for in a wedding photographer. Beyond talented, charismatic, and easy-going, he made our day stress-free and fun! He was very professional and flexible with our needs. He was organized and timely too. The photos came within weeks of the wedding and they were artistic, editorial and sophisticated - perfect for the sartorial couple we are. We would hire him again in a heartbeat and would strongly recommend his services to anyone.

John is a dream to work with. I’ve worked with John on several projects now: my wedding, engagement shoot, bridal shower, Sunday brunch, and shoots with clients. I’ve worked with many photographers because I modeled for years, and John is who I choose to work with. I would say I am an extremely detail oriented person and John doesn’t miss a beat. He’s just fun to work with, professional, and so thorough. Working with John is a collaborative and creative experience from start to finish and that sort of thing is only possible with a certain quality of artist.

Working with John was a pleasure. He took the time to get to know us prior to the sessions and we were in constant communication. With my wife we ​​went to have a coffee with John where we talked about the expectations of the sessions (engagement and wedding). He really cares about his clients and the quality of his work.
He has been very professional and considerate at all times during our engagement photography session and with our wedding photos.
Both my wife and I, our friends and family were impressed by the quality of the results. John has the ability to bring out the best in a specific moment and frame it in a photographic image.
It has been very easy to work with him and he has adapted his work to the weather conditions, to the shadows of the photography environment or any other unexpected occasion. He has managed to capture every special moment and this is exactly what we wanted from a professional photographer.

"We feel so lucky that John photographed our destination wine country wedding.  The entire experience with him was so natural I hardly had to say much of what I wanted, he had it handled.  From the moment we met him, he felt like an old friend of ours.  His presence seemed so subtle on the day and yet every tender moment is captured up close.  My job requires me to work with so many talented photographers and so I will admit that finding the right photographer was a challenge for me. John’s work caught my eye as his images all feel so real. We have hired John for family portraits after our great experience and can't wait to do so again as soon as we can all be together.  I could not recommend him more, he is so easy and reliable to work with."

John was integral to our wedding as whole and not just wedding photography! We found John on a Facebook giveaway for free engagement photos and he just captured our playfulness so well. We decided to elope to Yosemite and John was on board with every Covid date and time change. John spent an exceptional amount of his own time scoping out photo locations in the park before hand which really made the day of flow smoothly! Additionally, we are pretty casual and John was very helpful when it came down to wedding etiquette and timeline haha! Really can’t recommend John enough. He will absolutely listen to your vision and work to the best of his ability to bring it life for you. He’s also just fun to have around which is something you definitely want in a wedding photographer!

We were referred to John by a industry leading action photographer who phrased him as "The Absolute Best". John provided a extremely professional yet down to earth experience from the initial consultation to the final print of our album. We couldn't be happier!!

We cannot rave enough about John as a wedding photographer!! From the first phone call to making the  album we will cherish forever, John was spectacular through and through. His steady presence was exactly what we needed as we navigated a wedding during the pandemic, and our constantly evolving plans. He recommended an engagement session which allowed everyone to get to know each other before the wedding day and helped us relax in front of the camera. He was so responsive and never got annoyed with our endless questions. We are so happy with how all of photos turned out, and have gotten nothing but rave reviews from everyone we’ve shared them with. John became a true friend over the past year and we will definitely have him photograph more events in our future. I truly cannot recommend him enough!!

I have been working with John for years and this review is long overdue!  Beyond his very obvious talent with a camera, John is one of my favorite photographers to have on the team for a wedding day.  He is organized but not uptight and  understands that timing needs to adjust as the day flows naturally.  Experience is key, and he has plenty.  On top of it all he is a wonderful human to be around and those are just the vibes you want on a wedding day!
