Approach & Philosophy
Wedding photography is So important. A very special time, that becomes family history. My goal is to capture the important moments of your story - from engagement to the last moments of your reception - and to make it all look as beautiful and meaningful as it is. I take the time to understand you and your wedding, to scout locations and plan shots, to shoot everything That Happens, and carefully select and custom develop every image that I create for you. To me, its an Honor, and I feel an important obligation to produce beautiful photographs of your wedding, and I do.
I don't limit my time. all shooting & developing is included in my flat fee. I Look For opportunities to shoot you and capture your story. I am on a mission to create every beautiful image of your wedding that I can. Engagement, rehearsal, getting ready, family, friends....great photographs of all.
I shoot and develop for human emotion and beauty. My photographs have a connectedness, liveliness, beauty. that special look on your face, in your eye. I am always thinking about composition and lighting, and I put you in scenes of great color, lighting, beauty.
you will be very happy with the Skill and devotion I bring to photographing your wedding, how I deal with you/your family/friends....and most importantly, I believe you will love the images that I create for you.
recent comments about my wedding photography:
“…Your photos were classy and beautiful. Just the way wedding photos should look...” Friend of the Bride, 2014
“…We could not be happier with our decision to choose John for our wedding photographer!! He was super friendly, genuine, and easy going from the first time we met him for our engagement photos. He is so accommodating and willing to do whatever he can to make sure you are happy. He went above and beyond in everything he did! … John spent so much time from the rehearsal dinner to spending literally all day at our wedding! We loved that he dedicated his whole day to our wedding so we did not have to stress at all. And even after the wedding he is still working so hard to get us our wedding photos as soon as possible! We loved that we got the first 40 photos so fast after the wedding! BEAUTIFUL WORK!...” A 2014 Bride
“…John was incredible at the wedding and did an absolutely amazing job of documenting the beautiful event that was [the] wedding. Thanks John!...” A 2014 Wedding Officiant
“…John is an amazing photographer and a consummate professional. He was fun and personable, while at the same time being unobtrusive. John went over and above, followed us around for several days, and produced some amazing photographs to memorialize our daughter's wedding and the related events. I hope I have many future opportunities to enlist his services…” Mother of the Bride, 2014
“….And thank you so much for the beautiful video...we Loved it so much!!! I cried through the whole thing!!! We are so fortunate to have had you as our photographer!!!...” A 2013 Bride
“…Thanks John Curry Photography for the stunning photos from [the] wedding. It was really cool that you posted them on Facebook and tagged us all. As you can see, I've used them as my new profile & cover photo! If I ever decide to get married, I'll be in touch!...” Bridesmaid, 2014
“…[We] told John from the beginning that we were having an unconventional wedding and wanted photos that helped convey that. We bypassed formal photos and John instead documented our entire wedding process in a photo journalist style. I could not be any happier with the final results! Our friends and family who weren't able to attend the wedding have been able to join in our experience through these beautiful photos…” A 2014 Bride
“…I just wanted to say how much I have been loving our pictures on Facebook….” A 2014 Bride
“…I was impressed with your professional attitude, commitment to being there at all the events and your HARD WORK! Your ability to cope with everyone else taking photos too. I recommend you to anyone needing a really good photographer…..” Mother of the Bride, 2014
Delivery of Your First 25 Photos Within Days
I believe it is important that you, Your Family and friends see photos right away. I deliver your first 25 Wedding photos within 7 days (often quicker than that, often more photos than that). I typically do this by posting an album to facebook, and tag you, your family and friends. If you have pre-wedding activities (rehearsal, parties, etc) 2 days or more before the wedding, I will take photographs and post them before your wedding. Its a great way to build excitement about your wedding.
Savannah had a tea party at Remedy Tea on Capitol Hill. It was 2 days before the wedding. I took photos and posted this Facebook Album 2 days before her wedding.
Ana's Rehearsal and Rehearsal dinner were 2 days before her wedding. I attended and posted this Facebook Album the day before her wedding.
Robin's wedding was on August 1. On August 5 I posted this album of 50 of her first photos.
Engagement Photos Included
I favor doing engagement photos with you. There is No extra charge. Its a great way For Us to meet, For you to see how I work, and for us to develop more ease in working with each other. I like this approach because it lets you understand and trust how I shoot and handle things, which I find helps you relax on your wedding day. Here are some engagement photos that I love...
Options & Pricing
I take a "Flat Fee" approach, all shooting and developing included, with options to add other items.
Wedding Albums & Photobooks
Wedding albums and photobooks have become so easy to do, in amazing quality, that the option that I now recommend is that you, or a freelance album designer or other individual with an eye for design, create the album. I can recommend album services, and album designers, that will create beautiful albums for you. And, of course, I will support that process and cooperate with it in any way that makes sense. For more information, please look at my "Options & Price List" document.
