John Martin Photography | About

About The Image Above:

This photo was taken by the awesome Mike Palladino when, just after I shot their formal portrait session, this brand new bride & groom, Britni & Robby, surprised me with a gift of 2 Elvis Duran & The Morning Show shirts at their own wedding because they knew I am a huge fan of the show.  I mean, HELLO LADY who does that?!?!

All of my clients are fabulous!  I am sure you will be too! :)

Client Testimonials (With MUCH Thanks):


John is wonderful because he is so relaxed, always has a smile on his face and truly has a passion for what he does. His pictures have warmth. His turn around is insanely quick. John made me feel so good on my wedding day. His directions helped me relax and he always kept me laughing. I was married yesterday and now my family wants him to come to all family events as a guest because he was just so charming! Chris and I adore John and would recommend him anytime!
-Jen & Chris Radicone

I highly recommend this photographer!  John was a real highlight of our wedding experience and made our wedding photography experience such a wonderful one! He goes above and beyond in every way. John is not only a talented photographer, but he is an exceptional person- warm, friendly, fun and super accomodating. He always made us feel so comfortable and always put us in a great mood with his personality. He worked with our budget which meant a lot to us too. We are so happy with the quality of the engagement pictures as well as the wedding photos. They are both creative and of high quality. He didn't miss a moment. He is very thorough, detailed, and always listens and remembers what we've asked for i.e. capturing picturs of our harpist, the In Memory table, poses we wanted, certain family members we wanted to include, etc. He really did not miss a beat. And all the while he made us laugh and always made us feel so at ease. He blended right in! He was always professional, super responsive and he got us our edited photos really quickly! We can't speak any more highly of John and have friends from the wedding who have already booked him for other photo shoots! We will defintely be using him again for any of our future photo engagements!
-Regina & Mark Savarese 

John handled both our engagement photos and our wedding day photography, and we couldn't be more pleased with all of his work. We have his pictures displayed throughout our home, and still get so many compliments on how gorgeous the photos are, even years after the fact. John's artistic vision is unique, but he's alsojust a lovely person to have around, which is important when choosing who will follow you around all day during your important life events. His prices are incredibly fair, and he got us a DVD of all 800+ of our wedding photos before we even left for our honeymoon less than a week later.  Can't recommend John enough -- hire him!
-Kate & Dan O'Phalen

Every picture looks so amazing!  We couldn't have a picked a more perfect photographer!  Our whole family has been raving about you and how you made the day even that much more enjoyable!  Thank you so much!

-Adrienne & Brian Mazzola

John had done our save the dates/engagement photos. He was professional and a ton of fun! He was open to all of our ideas and extremely helpful when researching locations. Our experience with John was amazing. His shots were beautiful and he captured the sweetest candid photos. Not only did he do an amazing job, he also gave us helpful advice when using an abroad photographer as our wedding was a destination - Punta Cana! His tips and pointers when dealing with another photographer seriously helped. I can't wait to use John for other family events. Excellent customer service, direction and fun during shoots are so important! Thanks again John!
-Andrea & Tyler Celauro

John has done both personal and professional work for me. He is prompt, creative, thoughtful, artistic and professional. My Christmas card the last four years has been phenomenal - not only do I get a portrait of my daughter every year, but I send out cards that make people oohhh and ahhh when they open the envelope! He has captured my daughter's spirit and personality at every stage of her life, and I am so grateful. I cannot recommend John enough.
-Heather Romano

John did such a beautiful, quick and affordable job on my headshots. I receive compliments on them all the time. I even had my wife get pictures of herself from John when her job asked for some. John is very easy to work with and he always exhibits the utmost in professionalism! Good luck John you're the best...
-Andy Pitz, Comedian / Actor 

John Martin is one of the most professional, creative, and talented artists I know. He has photographed numerous events I have attended as well as my own personal portraits for publication. In the 10+ years I have known John, I have consistently recommended him to any and all who sought professional photography. From actors' headshots to friends' weddings he has gone above and beyond in displaying his indefatigable passion for the work and has maintained the utmost professionalism. Everyone I have recommended has praised both him and the results he produces. I trust anyone who employs his talents will agree John is the best.
-Lynde Rosario

John has the ability to capture the most beautiful moments on camera. My wedding album is huge because it was too hard to pick only a few of all of the fabulous shots he took. He is extremely professional and very fun and easy to work with. I was also pleasantly surprised with how quickly I received all of my edited images. Your wedding day goes by so fast, and I am so thankful that I have these gorgeous photos to remember it forever. I recommend John to everyone I know.

John Martin is a FANTASTIC photographer! From start to finish he did a stupendous job the day of my twin girls First Holy Communion. We love our photos, the early morning "getting ready" candid photos came out beautifully as did the more formal pictures taken before and after the church!! Not only was John wonderfully professional, nice and detail oriented, he is amazing with kids and getting them to cooperate, relax and follow directions. His highly creative photos speak for themselves.  My entire family was 100% pleased with the finished product.  John captured the feelings and sentiments of the day perfectly.  It is without a doubt that I highly recommend John for any event you are planning!!

Best photographer around!! You get way more than you pay for with John!
