Wow. These photos are making me all teary and emotional. I am so happy that you guys were there with us on our wedding day! John and Sam, you have done an amazing, amazing job :') and I knew my gut feeling was right when I met you guys at the bridal show. Both of you have always made us feel so at-home and comfortable, it's truly a pleasure working with amazing professionals like you.
I can't tell you how much we love the incredible pictures. John did such an amazing job capturing the day, the small moments, and the details. We have heard rave reviews from everyone, and are proud to share them with anyone who asks!
"All we could say was wow! Samantha, they are beautiful!!! They are EXACTLY what we wanted and imagined. Captured the exact look that we were going for and what you wrote was so incredibly sweet.
I can't thank you enough. I am so excited for September but even more excited and confident knowing you will be capturing our special day."
"Daniel and I wanted to thank you Sam for being such an awesome photographer! You have been great and made it very easy on us when we were both nervous about having our photos taken. I've already had a few inquiries from friends of family who have seen our photos. We let them know about your website.
We were thinking back to the photos we got to see in order to make our decision to choose New Vintage Media and we hope our photos help others out in doing the same. March weddings shouldn't be overlooked, it's still a beautiful time of the year!"
"Just wanted to thank you for everything. Mike and I were so happy with Samantha's work the day of the wedding.
We got the package.. And it is just stunning!!! Love all the details - you are such an artist. Love love love it!!!"
"Immediately upon meeting John & Sam, we knew that these were people that we wanted involved in our very special day! Samantha was so helpful and responsive right up until (and after!) our wedding day, and John was an absolute pleasure to work with on our day. I kept telling him that I barely even realized that he was there (although he definitely was given our beautiful photos), which is a great thing on a day when so much is going on around you. This team is so talented and professional that we would, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone who wants to capture all of those beautiful moments! Thank you Samantha, John and Team. We wish you nothing but the best!!"
Samantha and John are amazing to work with! They truly care about what they do, and go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Their are people in this world that care about their job, and there are people who LOVE their job. They love it and their hearts show in their work. Our photos and experience was perfect and so I would highly recommend using New Vintage Media! Thank you John & Samantha!
"Samantha, Thank you for your dedication, professionalism, passion, creativity and talent shooting and editing our wedding photos! We feel very fortunate to have found and worked with you. We wish you the very best, and look forward to staying in touch for future events!"
We found John to be very thorough, down to earth and he accommodated our every request without hesitation. We appreciate their honesty and integrity as it is hard to find these days.
On the day of our wedding we couldn't have asked for a better photographer! We were very pleased with the way the pictures turned out, and they had them in a timely manner. We enjoyed working with John and Samantha, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for great photography.
We had John from New Vintage Media as our wedding photographer and could not have asked for anything more! He caught so many great moments on camera. He made us (me, husband and all our guests) feel completely at ease to the point where we barely noticed he was there (exactly what we wanted, for all those candid shots). However, we surely did take notice when we received our photos, which were bursting with artfulness and emotion. If you're looking for a photographer to capture a special time in your life, look no further than New Vintage Media. You will not be disappointed!
"We love the videos! I never knew how much I laughed!! Thank you so much for putting together these keepsake videos, that we can share with our growing family for the years to come! Thank you for everything, It was great working with James and we are really happy with everything!"
"Choosing New Vintage Media for our wedding photography was the best decision we made! We are so thrilled with the way our photos turned out. John was so easy and fun to work with, and he made a point to photograph so many important moments and details that in the chaos of the day, I never would have thought of. We are so thankful for the way that our photos capture our day so effectively. In addition, we received our beautiful photos in such a timely manner - one month! - and the edits are absolutely amazing. We would highly recommend New Vintage Media to anyone, especially those who appreciate the vintage look - they are so personable, professional and genuine, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of working with them!"
I cannot think of anyone else I would have rather captured this important life event! From the engagement shoot to the big day itself, Sam was nothing but professional, helpful and fun! My husband and I are not big picture people, but Sam made us feel comfortable from the beginning. And the amazing team at New Vintage Media is so darn fast! We had our drafts and proofs way before I ever expected, amazing service!
"Ohhhh my goodness! John! Thank you so much. These are so wonderful. We LOVE the videos, especially the Highlight one. We both watched it many times in a row!!"
Photographers are one of the most important vendors for any wedding day as they are responsible for capturing your special moments to look back on for years to come. Well, thank god I hired New Vintage Media for my January 2014 wedding at Hockley Valley Resort, as the power went out on our day and we were forced to take most of our photos by candlelight! They turned out so amazing - artistic, gorgeous and warm. Amazing candid and staged photos. I absolutely adore New Vintage Media's style and would recommend them a hundred times over. Samantha is such a pleasure to deal with leading up to the wedding too. Quick and attentive and so on the ball!
We could not have picked a more perfect photographer to capture our special day. Sam did our wedding pictures this summer and they were simply stunning! She was always quick to respond, easy to adapt, super sweet and really personal. I felt extremely special having her capture our day! The photo-shoots were professional, while also candid and fun. I love love loved our pictures and would totally recommend these wonderful people!
Absolutely amazing to work with! My husband and I had the pleasure of having Sam as our photographer and she was nothing but amazing! She made us feel so comfortable, as we are both slightly camera shy, and she captured the day so beautifully! She did a wonderful job of capturing moments with our family members - so candid and so real! The best part - all the laughter!
"I look through them so often and I am just amazed at how great they are! Sam, you and Allie were so fun to work with and helped to keep everything so light and easy - I cannot thank you enough! You're the best!"
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the work you did shooting our wedding. The photos look absolutely beautiful and I love the video and like how it works with the song. Super cute. I just want to relive that day over and over. I [need to] really think it through about which ones to use for the album. It's going to be hard because honestly, they are all my favourites."
"The pictures and video are INCREDIBLE. Wow. Words could not describe how much we love them and how we look at them everyday! Everything is honestly exceedingly abundantly above what we could have asked for or imagined! Thank you so much!"
"Glen and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for capturing our wedding day so perfectly. We love all of the photos! You were also so helpful keeping our chaotic day moving and helping us find the good in our bad weather."
"We want to thank you for giving us the most incredible photos of our special day and engagement shoot. Your professionalism and relaxed approach made it so enjoyable, and you captured so many great moments. We are so thankful for all that you did for us. All the best"
"We are absolutely in LOVE with our video! John did an amazing job! It captures the emotions and the beauty of that day perfectly! I can't help but cry and smile every time we watch it! Thank you so very much! Mark and I can honestly not say enough about how impressed we were working with you. From the initial email, to the day of, to the final product, we have been blown away. Thank you for making this such a fun and easy process!"
Not only did John do a great job with the staged photos and big moments, he was also able to get great candid shots and capture some of the special and intimate moments during the day. We felt very comfortable working with John and were able to get a wide variety of shots that suited our personalities and vision/theme. We worked with John for our engagement photos as well and were also very happy with the result. We would definitely recommend John to any bride."
