So often, we don't get to hear all the positive feedback you have. All the time, we have brides looking for reviews from real clients. Since we don't want to give them your phone number, we thought of a few great ways to show your appreciation:
Colleen and Matt were married on 12-28-19, They wrote this 5-star tesimonial on The Knot on 1-18-20 "Jason was our wedding photographer, and he was amazing. Our wedding was the weekend after Christmas and Jason called on Christmas Eve to make sure we had all of our questions answered and so he knew what we wanted. He was very energetic and got amazing pictures. I would highly recommend this company and photographer! We already got our pictures back. They are stunning!"
Bridget and Nate were married 12-14-19, They wrote this note on The Knot 12-30-19 "We were fortunate enough to find Studio One on an internet search. After reading their reviews I was excited to see how things went. I can honestly say that all of their highly rated reviews were accurate. When we met with Joe he was very easy to talk to and helped us through the process as well as offering amazing deals. We did the 12 hour package and it was great! Our photographer was as Jason and he was phenomenal!!! I don’t give a lot of reviews but I felt it wouldn’t be unfair not to with how great Jason was. We had several kids and dogs at the house that the bridal party was ready at and Jason totally embraced it. He let the kids help him take pictures and was awesome with them! We wanted our dog in pictures (she can be very shy of new people) and he took the time to have her warm up to him so pictures with her were possible. Thank you Jason! Needless to say I would definitely recommend Studio One, our pictures turned out amazing and I still have family telling me how awesome Jason was!"
Ashley and Bill were married on 11-30-19, They just wrote this review on The Knot 12-7-19 " Joe did our engagement photos in the dead of winter in Chicago without complaint and they are amazing. Jason came and photographed me and my bridesmaids getting ready and was a trooper - 7 women in one hotel room getting ready for a wedding is not easy to deal with! He and Joe teamed up and found us the PERFECT location for photos when the weather turned out not so great and our outdoor plans were ruined. The experience was amazing and they did everything we asked without fail. THANK YOU BOTH for making our day so perfect and capturing our love.
Nicole and Chris were married on 9-27-19. They just wrote on our Facebook Page and The Knot on 12-2-19 "If I could give a Studio One and their staff 10 stars I would! From the first meeting with Joe we knew we found the perfect company for our wedding. Joe is so friendly, easy going, honest and organized and made everything so simple. He told us that our personalities would match well with a photographer named Jason. After meeting him I knew that was the best decision we've made for our wedding. Jason is beyond wonderful and literally made our wedding so memorable. We got married in a barn during a complete downpour... And Jason was out there in the rain taking photos of the barn and everything else. He was so creative and easy to work with that the rain became a perfect backdrop for the photos. He worked so well with our huge bridal party and all the kids. He's simply amazing and our photos are proof of the happiness we felt that day. Thank you Jason, Joe, Tony and Kenneth for all your hard work. We are so happy with your work and would recommend Studio One to anyone getting married. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Chris and Nicole (married 9.27.19)
Megan and Thomas were married on 11-2-19. They wrote this 5-star review on The Knot 12-2-19 "In LOVE with how our wedding photos turned out! We had the pleasure of working with Jason, who was by far the BEST! He was incredibly easy to work with, energetic, made taking tons of photos easy and he came prepared! He had a sewing kit, scissors, pretty much any little thing we forgot about he had. I would highly recommend Studio One and specifically Jason, they all were so nice, helpful and affordable. We got our pictures back quickly and I could not be happier with how they turned out!"
"We love Joe! He made the engagement shoot fun and took all the awkwardness out of it. He knew the best spots for photos and helped us pose and smile naturally!! A wonderful experience!"
Jessica and Mike were married on 9-28-19, They just wrote this 5-star review on 10-19-19
"Great customer service! Jason was our photographer and he was amazing! He made everyone feel comfortable and we loved his work!

April and Ed were married on 8-4-19 and just wrote this 5-star review on The Knot
"Jason, our photographer, was so incredible! He had a lot of energy and captured every moment-private and public, on our day. He even captured the rainbow that appeared following the rainfall before our ceremony. My husband and I have incredible memories to look back on thanks to his work and thoughtfulness. Joe at Studio One was great to work with and his company offered the best rates, with exceptional work!
Emila and Matt were married 3-2-19. They wrote this 5-star review on The Knot on 8-4-19
"We could not be happier with our experience with Studio One. Our photographer was Jason, and he is AMAZING - he was so energetic, and his positive, relaxed attitude was truly welcomed and appreciated throughout the day. It helped us stay positive and relaxed, especially pre-ceremony and while riding around downtown for pictures between the ceremony and reception. We received multiple comments from friends and the bridal party on his awesomeness. We are thrilled with how our photographs came out, and we received them more quickly than expected. Both Jason and Joe understood what we were going for - we were clear that we wanted classic photos, with “no cheese” - and they made it happen. From the start, Joe made everything about the process and the contracts very clear and straightforward. The prices were very reasonable, and there were no hidden costs or fees. The reminder emails made it easy for us to keep track of and be reminded of the steps. Joe also took beautiful engagement photos for us at the Naperville riverwalk, even accommodating our request for a session at Christmastime that would capture all the lights and decorations. It was a fun experience that helped us prepare for the big day, and we were very happy with the photos."
Deborah and Alexander were married July 2019. On 7-28, they gave us a 5-star review!
"Photography was definitely the least stressful part of our wedding. Joe was super helpful and easy to contact with the "pre-wedding" information, and Mike was an amazing photographer. Our wedding album turned out beautifully! Mike was great about incorporating both of our ideas to really make a photo story."
Alexandra and Ty were married on 6-21-19, The just wrote this 5-star review on The Knot. Their Sunset photo is awesome! " Our photographer, Jason, was absolutely amazing to work with! He was so friendly and full of energy and led us to some truly amazing photos. He was extremely creative and really composed some beautiful photos. We got some amazing sunset shots that look straight from a magazine. He was exactly what we needed from a photographer. And the owner, Joe, was extremely easy to talk to and helped us pick a great package. He got us the finished photos in just a couple of weeks after our wedding and let us download every single one. The final photos looked absolutely perfect. Could not be any happier with our choice!"
Danielle and Jeff were married 6-8-19, on 7-17-19, they gave us a 5 star review
"My husband and I were very happy that we booked our wedding photography with Studio One! Our photographer, Jason, enthusiastically and creatively captured amazing moments and all the pictures came out beautiful!
Anne and Andrew were married on 6-15-19, on 7-16-19 they gave us a 5-star review
"Our photographer Jason was amazing. He was the photographer at my sister's wedding 3 years prior and I knew I wanted him to be our photographer as well. His energy was amazing, from the first second he pumped up the excitement and used his energy to make all of us relaxed and in a great mood the whole day. He was open to different types of photos and came up with unique ways to use elements at our disposal. I love all the pictures and would highly recommend him!"
Carrie and Debbie just wrote a 5-star review on 7-14-19
"Absolutely amazed at the quality of work on our engagement photos done today. Stunning photos and great ideas from Joe on how to pose. We had a blast and Joe made us both feel so comfortable. Can’t wait for my August wedding to see the photos
You deserve 10 stars"
Celia and Vince wrote this about their engagement session on The Knot 6-22-19
"Just booked them a few months ago for our 2020 wedding and they already are amazing. Our engagement pictures were very fun, we felt comfortable and our pups were treated so nicely. Joe is so great at emailing quickly and making sure everything is just right for us. Can’t wait for my wedding day, I know the pictures will be great!
Kasey and Tim were married on 5-18-19, They just wrote this on The Knot 6-10-19
"I cannot say enough good things about our photographer Jason! He was absolutely amazing! He had so much energy throughout the whole entire day and kept things so organized and calm at the same time. He also took me aside when he first got there to check in with me which I really appreciated.
Having older siblings, this is the 4th wedding in my family and everyone just kept saying how Jason blew the rest out of the water, (that's how you know you got a good one when other people say how amazing he is!)
Also, Joe was so great at sending emails throughout the time from booking until days before the wedding, which helped keep my nerves at ease. I would 11/10 recommend Studio One Photography and if you can get Jason, you will not be disappointed!"
Tayler and Ryan were married on 5-24-19. They wrote this on the knot on 6-4
"Jason is an amazing photographer! He did a great job getting as many pictures done as possible! His energy was amazing! He was like our photographer and our “hype” man! It was a pleasure working with him and our guests loved him too!!! Can’t wait to see our pictures soon :)"
Jenna and Rob were married on 4-27-19. They wrote this 5 star review on 6-1-19 "When initially looking for our wedding photographer, I did quite a bit of research, including meeting with a number of different photographers prior to booking; my husband and I knew almost immediately upon meeting with Joe that we would pick Studio One. He was so kind, easy to talk to, and genuinely seemed to enjoy his career - when he showed us the beautiful work that he and his photographers did, it was really a straight-forward choice. Their pricing was not only extremely reasonable, but Joe worked to customize a package that was the best for us.
There is so much to plan and think about during the wedding process, I could not have been more pleased that Joe would actually reach out to us to remind us to fill out their online form or with a wedding count down. Such a relief to not have to be chasing him for answers.
We worked with Jason as our photographer and he was upbeat from the first phone call. Talking to him a few days prior made me remember that the wedding itself would be fun - it sounds silly to say, but the days leading up get so nerve racking, you kind of forget that. He was well-organized on the day, not afraid to tell everyone where to go and how to stand. He got right into the crowd during dancing and captured some truly memorable shots. It ended up snowing on our wedding day at the very end of April, but he went out in the cold, didn't care the he was getting wet, and made the unwanted weather into something special for us.
Overall, fantastic company and people that I would pick again and again; no second thoughts or regrets!"
5-7-19 Magdalyne and Christopher were married on 4-7-19. They wrote this 5-star review on The Knot on 5-4-19 " I highly recommend Studio One Photography and Dennis as the photographer!!! Professional, patient, fun, friendly, and his pictures are beautiful!!!! Thank you!!
4-26-19 Ashley and Alex were married on 3-29-19. They wrote this 5-star review on The Knot
"Jason is the BEST photographer I have ever had the pleasure to work with EVER. I worked in the wedding industry for over 15 yrs, stood up in 7 weddings, and booked him for our own this past March. You will not be disappointed at all if you choose studio one and Jason. His energy and creative eye is amazing. Work turn around was extremely quick and quality was spectacular. I dont know if he would do pregnancy announcements BUT I plan to find out when we embark on that journey. Thank you SO much Jason for being the best photographer I've ever met or worked with!!!!"
4-24-19 Robin and Joe were married on 3-30-19. They wrote this 5 star review on the knot
"Studio One was great from the start. Joe really made us feel comfortable, he was honest and helpful and made our decision super easy! Jason, our photographer was phenomenal! He really knows how to make everyone feel comfortable and joins in on the fun. He's so quick in getting the "boring/posed" pictures out of the way so you can have fun! We got nothing but compliments about him all night and even now, weeks later, people are still talking about how awesome Jason was! We got the photos back nice and quick and they turned out amazing! I highly recommend Studio One and Jason!"
2-25-19 -Taylor and Zach were married 1-25-19. They wrote this on The Knot
"An absolute pleasure to work with them! Joe is responsive to any and all email inquiries and worked with us despite extreme budget constraints. Natalie our photographer for the event is an absolute rockstar. Photos came out beautifully and she was kind as could be even with any and all high demands. Would strongly recommend for ANY event, especially bridal! Got our photos back in record time and love every captured moment."
1-22-19 Judy and David are getting married in August and had their Engagement photos done at the Naperville Riverwalk...in the winter...28 degrees. We had fun, kept moving and enjoyed the moment. They wrote about us on The Knot too!
"My fiancé and I just had our engagement photo shoot with Joe and it went so well. It was probably less than 30 degrees outside, but Joe was super efficient and professional and it went by quick so we weren’t in the cold too long at all. He told us we should expect the photos by Tuesday, but we got them but Monday which was an awesome surprise and the photos are beautiful. I can’t wait to work with Natalie on our wedding day!"
Holly and Frank were married 10-28-18, They wrote this 5-star review on the Knot 12-11-18
We had such a great experience with Studio One from beginning to end! Joe was always easy to get in contact with and sent us reminders to check in with our online account about specific photos that we wanted and other things. After a few meetings with various companies, we felt that Joe was the most genuine and truly interested in helping us get the best pictures of our wedding! Our photographer was Natalie. She was very easy-going from our first phone call to our big day! When I told her about a specific picture that I wanted taken, she was very realistic with me about the challenges we may face taking that picture which I appreciated! One thing that I VERY much appreciated as a Type-A Bride was that Natalie was very organized and not afraid to tell people what to do and where to stand to get the best picture. By the end of the night, Natalie was dancing through the crowd capturing the funny and cute pictures of all of our guests. We are thrilled with the way our pictures turned out and cannot thank Studio One and Natalie enough!
Heather and Ben were married 6-9-18. The wrote this 5 star review on wedding Wire 12-9-18:
Our photographer Natalie was awesome. She was super accommodating to our requests, going to the salon, our house, the church, and the reception hall to take photos. She had great photo ideas throughout that made our photo collection from the day super awesome. She did great making sure we were happy what photos were being taken and if there was anything else we wanted done. Would highly recommend!
Jennifer and Jason were married on 10-6-18, They just wrote this 5 star review on The Knot.
12-6-18 From the second we walked into the doors for our initial consult with Joe at Studio One it was nothing but a positive experience. Joe sat down with us and walked us through all of the Photography and Videography packages, and answered all of our additional questions. We felt so comfortable at our initial consult with Joe that we decided to use Studio One for both Photography and Videography, also using an additional photographer for a segment of our day. Our engagement photos were completed in such a timely manner, we were so impressed from the very start. For our Wedding day we used Brian as our Photographer and Dennis as our additional Photographer for 4 hours. Leading up to the big day, Joe, would reach out periodically to check-in which was extremely comforting. The week of the wedding we had both Photographers and our Videographer reach out to us to touch base with us and go over expectations of capturing the day. Both Photographers were absolutely amazing and did such a wonderful job capturing every moment of our special day. They both captured so many wonderful candid photos, which is exactly what we had hoped for. We are so thrilled with each and every one of our photos from our wedding day and we could not be happier. We loved our wedding video that we also purchased from Studio One. The Videographer captured all of the special moments throughout the day and did a great job editing our wedding video and highlight reel. We are so happy that we chose to use Studio One to capture all of the love on our Wedding Day. We could not be happier with the way our Photos and Video turned out! We definitely will continue to recommend all of the services that Studio One has to offer.
Ruchika and Tim were married 11-2-18 and just wrote this 5 star review on The Knot. We stumbled upon Studio one while searching for best photographers in the area. We checked both their reviews on google and facebook. We scheduled a quick appointment and went it to discuss. The amazing thing was Joe , the manager was willing to accommodate our request at a very short notice of 1.5 months from wedding. He manages request very well through a software and instantly responds. My first experience with him and his managing tool was awesome. Closer to our wedding date our photographer Jason Terril called me to discuss about how we wanted to do the shoot along with pitching his own ideas . He made me very comfortable in the first discussion. And then on the wedding day he went over and beyond by making every one comfortable. We felt like family with him. He took really nice photos. He also carried props around like blanket , stool etc... for the photoshoot . Jason thanks a ton for making my day with beautiful photos and chit chat,
Kata and Chris were married 10-12-18. They just wrote this 5-star review on The Knot about Studio One and Jason. Congratulations!
"Studio One was amazing from start to finish!!! We couldn’t have been happier to work with such a great company. Jason our photographer is just full of life and made our wedding day so much fun. We love everyone one of our photos and couldn’t thank you enough to capture all of our day. Ken was our videographer and he did an amazing job with our video we can’t stop watching it. Thank you so much for all your heard work and I would recommend you to everyone!!!!!"

Joe Brunch did outstanding job with our Engagement Portraits. We took our pictures at Naperville river walk and the pictures were so beautiful. Joe let us bring our own props for our Engagement Portraits. Brian Geen did an outstanding job on our wedding pictures on 6/15/18 . He was able to work with me on what type of photos I would like to take on my wedding day. My bridal party loved that he was funny and friendly. If you want a high-end portraits. I recommend Studio One Photography and Video. The pictures were worth every penny.

"Our wedding was perfect Louie our photographer was so professional but most of all he made not only me but my whole wedding party feel very comfortable. He was always laughing with us and I felt like he was part of the wedding party. The prices were great and the Naperville location was very close to us. Joe at Naperville store explained Evelin details and kept in touch with us till the end. I recommend his services."

Brian was amazing ! We received so many compliments from friends and family about him and some that are getting married soon wanting to use his services ! He kept my whole bridal party laughing and having a good time all day. He showed me some of the pics he took on his camera unedited and I can’t wait to see the final products ! You can really tell Brian loves what he does and takes so much pride in his work. We would highly recommend Brian and Studio One !"
Ivana and David were married on 8-18-18, They wrote this 5 star review on The Knot
"Studio One Photography and Video was a perfect choice for our wedding photos and video. Everyone here, from the owner, to the photographer, to the videographer, are beyond nice, friendly, and caring people. We met with Joe, the owner, and instantly received a warm welcome. He is such a great and funny guy. Our photographer was Jason and let me tell you, NO REGRETS. He goes out of his way to take the most breathtaking, unique, and amazing photos. We also loved him because he was so sweet, funny, and a great addition to our day. Kenneth was our videographer and was also a sweet and caring person. I would HIGHLY recommend Studio One to others for photography, simply beautiful work from the best people you could meet. Jason is the best! We will definitely choose them for our many events to come in the future."
Jessica and Nathan were married on 8-25-18. Jason and Natalie were their photographers. Here's the 5-star review they wrote on The Knot yesterday:
"We had Jason, Natalie, and Joe (videographer). We could not have been more happy with how they all did. Jason especially did an incredible job, but all three were exceptional. Jason is truly great at what he does. He was very creative for the photo shots he took, and we cannot wait to see how they turn out. But he also did a great job of keeping everyone smiling picture after picture, all throughout the day--which is something you don't think about beforehand. Jason even stayed longer than his required contract time, just to get a few more shots. Excellent pricing, and exceptional quality of photography. Jason and Natalie were the best pair of photographers we have ever worked with, and we do not say that lightly. Our videographer Joe did a solid job as well, and did not get in the way. He captured all the important moments, and was great to have for the day. We highly recommend Studio One."
Agnes and Tom were married 8-11-18 and wrote on The Knot about us and their photographer Brian: "Studio One Photography did an amazing job! My photographer Brian was excellent. My photos were amazing the lighting was perfect and editing was completed in 2 weeks. Highly recommended them for your upcoming wedding!"
Vicki and Ryan were married on 8-17-18, They just wrote this on The Knot "Studio One was a pleasure to work with from day 1! We initially walked into the studio after having an appointment with a DJ in the same suite and Joe, the owner, met with us right then and there. He took the time to go over pricing and packaging and show us many sample shots of his different photographers' work. Right away my husband knew Brian was the one!
Joe took our engagement pictures (which were processed within the hour after of taking)! Despite some gloomy and chilly weather Joe still made many pictures work out a Naperville Riverwalk. He kept in contact over the months to discuss photo details. The website is easy to navigate to fill in blanks about wedding details. And on the day of the wedding let's just say Brian was our right choice! Professional, efficient, and funny... he had us all laughing. We even had comments from friends that have been married and those that have upcoming weddings that said "I wish we could've had Brian as our photographer". He is retiring I believe this year... but worth checking out Joe's other photographers' work. Don't think you'll be disappointed! Can't wait to see the final products! Our videographer (also a Joe), was another hit indeed!
Allison and Josh were married on 7-21-18, They wrote this on Facebook: We found studio one my accident! They were in the same building as our DJ and we asked if we could do a quick meeting since we were already there. Joe was great and quick to answer questions and emails. We ended up picking Natalie as our photographer and I LOVED her! We talked on the phone before the wedding and she took note of any must needed shots for the wedding. Many people commented on how she looked like she was having fun along with the guests which I love haha! We also worked with Josh for our video and he was amazing as well! They made a great team captured our event and getting my serious husband to come out of his shell for pictures haha. I cannot wait to see how it all turns out!
Kata and Eric wrote on The Knot on 7-17-18 about their engagement photo experience

Thanks Dennis! Will get in touch with Joe then. I will let him know what an amazing job you did, and how we are looking forward to getting the proofs on the USB Drive, and I will let Joe from Studio One know in 2 years we will most likely contact Studio One and request you to shoot the College Graduation Party. We appreciate you Dennis making our night more memorable. Sincerely Christine and Fred

Linnea and Dave were married 8-26-17. They had this to say on The Knot 11-20-17:
"We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Studio One Photography from start to finish. We felt comfortable with our plan for our wedding day immediately during our initial consultation with Joe. He helped us choose the right photographer for our needs. Jason, the photographer we chose was amazing! He was very high energy and fun with our group, and he was very creative with his shots. He even had some really cute tricks to keep the children in our wedding party from becoming bored with taking pictures. We really felt that he cared about getting the best images from our special day. Of course, the pictures all turned out great! We had a consult with Jason the week before the wedding where he evaluated our style and any special requests, and we were thrilled with the outcome! Thank you, Jason, Joe, and Studio One Photography!"

"My husband and I would highly recommend Studio One for future brides and grooms! Joe was great at keeping us up to date on what he needed from us and got our pictures back to us in three weeks!
Natalie, our photographer on the day, was super easy to work with and kept our bridal party laughing even in the 30 degree weather. She captured all of the best parts of the day beautifully and kept the day running smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a photographer for their special event.
Laura and Patrick were married 10-7-17, They just wrote this 5-star review on the Knot 11-4-17. Best Review ever!
"Natalie is beyond awesome. Her personality & professionalism helped make the day go so smoothly. She both knows what shots she is looking for, and was also flexible with suggestions, which also helped make the day low-to-no-stress.
As for the interesting story of how Natalie became our wedding photographer… my wife is not a fan of having her picture taken, so she wanted to make sure our wedding photographer would have a personality to make a stressful day less stressful. Most photography companies would not let us know who the photographer was until the week before, or the one person we would meet did not seem to have the personality we were looking for. Then, we found our way to Studio One in Naperville. While talking to Joe (President, etc.), talking about prices & details & such, we also mentioned our one requirement, and he was willing to work with it. After a few options, Natalie sounded like a good choice, and he actually had her call us later in the day, and throughout the conversation, we were increasingly happy with our choice, & that she hadn’t yet been booked. And now, as the wedding has since passed, and after seeing the photos, we feel like we literally could not have had a better photographer. Thank You Natalie, & Studio One Photography."
Joy and Brandon were married on 10-21-17, they just left us a 5-star review on The Wedding Wire:
"We booked Studio One Photography after we met with Joe! I liked how he answered all of our questions. He was very responsive and flexible. Our engagement shot was in August and it was so hot but he made it quick and our shots were memorable. Not only that we received our photos in only a couple days. Our wedding was photographed by Bill just two weeks ago! Let me just say Bill was amazing. He was good with our larger wedding party and he did exactly as we wanted. I cannot wait to see the pictures. They will be amazing because Bill made the shots fun and that’s what we wanted. I also wanted him to capture the personalities of my blended family and I know he did that. Thank you Joe and Bill! We will be using Studio One for our future photography needs!! They are a great company and I’m happy to have used them!!"
Linda and Tom are getting married next year. After their engagement/ family Portrait They wrote this on The Knot 11-2-17
"Since we love fall, we decided October would be an awesome month for our engagement and family pictures. Naturally, it ended up being one of the coldest, most blustery days of the season, thus far. We left home, not knowing what to expect, met Joe in Downtown Naperville, slowly emerged from the car, and faced the snow and ice pellets that were falling from the sky. Within minutes, we were laughing, having a great time, and truly enjoying our shoot. We cannot wait to share our big day with Studio One and have them capture and help create even more memories for us! Choosing Studio One Photography was one of our best choices, after each other, of course... Thank you!"
5-star Review on The Knot 11-1-17 "Studio One has been nothing short of amazing to work with! We knew the moment we sat down at our consultation with Joe that we wanted Studio One to photograph our wedding day. We recently had our engagement pictures taken with Joe and we absolutely love them! Joe has been exceptionally accommodating with quick responses to my endless questions. We are looking forward to Studio One capturing our wedding next year!
Kim and Chris were chilly during their Engagement portrait 10-28-17 but they wrote this about their experience on The Knot! Thank you!! - Joe
"We recently did our engagement photoshoot with Joe in Downtown Naperville. It was a very cold October day, 38 degrees, and really windy! However, Joe was very professional and kept us going the whole time! We received the photos in record breaking time, only 3 days later! Thank you so much Joe for taking our photos and creating wonderful memories for our time as an engaged couple!"

"Studio One was all around FANTASTIC!! Our initial appointment/consultation was with Joe who guided us through the process of how wedding photography is laid out the day of. He was very informative and showed us several examples of photos and video. We booked with Studio One immediately after our consultation! Our package included an engagement photo session with Joe at the Naperville Riverwalk area -Joe was a pleasure to work with and the photos turned out awesome!

"Our photographer Jason was amazing! We could not have been happier with him. His energy level was through the roof, and he was just a very happy go lucky guy! We got married on a really hot day in September, at a venue with no ac, and outdoor pictures. He went out of his way to find shady spots for us -so we didn't melt. He stayed way later at the reception that we thought he would, and was just so energized and great the entire night! It only took about 2 and a half weeks for us to get our pictures, and they were amazing! The pricing was grear too, especially in comparison to the other places we looked at. We highly recommend this company, and Jason in particular!"
Hailey and Kyle were married on 9-9-17. They wrote on The Knot on 10-4-17. Thank you both!! We love and appreciate your comments.
Natalie (With Studio One) was AMAZING!!! I was so hesitant about having a photographer that I didn't know following me and my family around on my wedding day, but Natalie was so kind and got along with everyone. She not only took beautiful pictures, she also helped out a bunch! She also handled things that were not part of her job description, including entertaining grandma! (Thanks again Natalie! Our grandma still talks about you!) After seeing the pictures, there were things that she (Natalie) captured that I would have never thought of, and those candid moments ended up being some of my favorite photographs. Studio One was the only wedding vendor that I did not have one single issue with. Communication was great, and everyone that we dealt with was wonderful. Pictures were also delivered in a very timely manner, much faster than the original projected date. All in all, it was a fabulous experience, and you will not be disappointed if you choose Natalie to shoot your special day!!!!
Hailey and Kyle Thomas
Hailey also wrote me a personal email:
I just left a review, it said it should be posted within 15 minutes. You were totally right about Natalie, she ROCKS! You guys are doing things right, and it was worth every single penny. Thanks for making our special day even more special. After seeing the pictures, it took us right back to that day. I've never had professional photo's taken before, and after seeing the aftermath, it is definitely an art, and Natalie has true talent.
Kelly and Kyle were married on 9-3-17, They wrote on The Knot 10-2-17!
For our recent wedding we visited Studio One Photography in Naperville, IL and we could not have been more pleased. With our package for a full day worth of photography for our wedding we also received a complimentary engagement photo shoot at the beautiful river walk in downtown Naperville. Joe performed the shoot himself and even was able to get our puppy to pay attention for some wonderful photos. Furthermore, I can not say enough good things about our wedding day photographer Jason! He was energetic throughout the entire day and night. He knew what photos he wanted before he even arrived to the venue. My wife and I chose not to do a first look, so after the ceremony we had to take all of our pictures together and he not only got amazing photos but also did it so quickly that we did not miss our whole cocktail hour! He was on the ball the entire night making sure we got all the various pictures we wanted with our guests, we just waived him down and he was there immediately. We just received our pictures and not only are they beautiful, but there are what seems like millions to choose from! I would highly recommend Studio One and Jason for anyone who has their wedding in the future!

"Studio one did both our photos and our video and we would recommend them to anyone. They were extremely professional and always quick to respond. Our wedding party was very difficult to deal with at times and they put up with them. They took some amazing shots and overall it was a pleasant experience working with them!"
Mayra and Mike wrote this on The Wedding Wire on 9-21-17 just a few days after their wedding: "Booked studio one for our wedding and since day 2 they have been nothing short of amazing! Our initial appointment was with Joe and he was so helpful! He walked us through every step and shot our engagement photos! We were booked with Natalie and she was amazing the day of our wedding! We heard nothing but great compliments from our guest about how great and attentive she was. She checked in constantly and made sure we had all of our photos before she left for the night. Highly recommended!!"
Tori and Nick wrote on The Knot on 9-13-17: "We just got back our engagement photos after only a few days of waiting and we LOVE them. We were initially a little nervous to take the photos because we had never done portraits before, but Joe was so great at making sure that we were relaxed and natural. We had so much fun and the photos turned out great!" Seeing these photos, we are even more excited to see what Jason is going to do for our big day next year. We are so happy that we decided to go with Studio One!
I wanted to send a big thank you to Joe at Studio One for taking time out of his Saturday to take engagement pictures for us! We had a great morning on the Naperville Riverwalk and love our portraits! Can't wait for our big day with Natalie!
Angela and Matt were married on 7-22-17, They wrote this on Wedding Wire and The Knot on 8-2-17
"We are so happy that we chose Studio One to photograph our wedding day. We loved the family feel from our first meeting with Joe. He set us up with Jason to capture the moments of our special day. The match was perfect. I spoke with Jason the week of my event to just be sure he had all of the information necessary. He arrived on time and work extremely hard the entire night. He had an easy going personality and tons of energy throughout the night. Additionally, the online planning was easy to complete and we were provided with reminders when things needed to be filled out. I would recommend this studio and Jason in particular to anyone in need of photography services. We will definitely be using this studio in our future too!"
Colleen and Jason wrote on The Knot 8-2-17
"We hired Jason from Studio One as our photographer for our wedding last month and he was absolutely AMAZING! He is high energy and gets super excited when he gets a good shot which then makes you and everyone else excited. He makes taking pictures fun and he gets great pictures in the process. This man is also extremely dedicated to getting the perfect shot. He was literally crawling around on the ground in a suit outside in 90 degree weather at times to make sure he got the right angle for the shot. Our bridal party loved his energy, our parents loved his dedication and hard work, and even my husband, who hates taking pictures, loved him and said he had fun doing our pictures! We had multiple family members come up to us and ask us where we found him because he was doing such a great job :)
Due to my not realizing how quickly your wedding day flies by (seriously people soak it in!), I realized on the day of the wedding that I felt I had not really planned enough time to do all the bridal party photos I thought I wanted and this was my biggest concern after the wedding. Well we just got our pictures and I should've know that with Jason I had nothing to worry about! We received over 2500 pictures from our day! We didn't have a videographer at our wedding, but we really didn't need one. Looking through all the photos was like watching a video of the day and it was so cool to see pictures from parts of the day I wasn't there for (my husband getting ready, candid shots on the dance floor, etc.). I had a lot of DIY projects at my wedding and Jason made sure to capture all the hard work I had put into the decorations/details that I didn't really get to see on the day of the actual wedding. It was awesome to see that my vision for our day really came through. And, as one of my bridesmaids pointed out when I was stressed that we maybe didn't get enough bridal party pictures, you really don't want 100 pictures of the same bridal party pose. One perfect picture is all you're going to hang up in your house anyway and Jason definitely gave us that and more!!
I should also mention that Studio One was the most affordable photography studio I found and they got us all of our pictures in less than a month! One another note two things I would recommend: 1. My husband and I knew that we wouldn't get a lot of time just the two of us so we made sure to take 20 minutes after the ceremony to take a walk together and have Jason come with to take some photos. This was one of the best decisions we made. It let us take a break from the craziness of the day and focus on the two of us and we got some great pictures!
2. I asked him to take large group family photos right after the ceremony and these turned out great! Somehow everyone looks great in all of them and we have big families! It's nice to have those large family photos because it's a rare occasion where everyone you love will be in one place so take advantage of that!
Definitely hire Studio One and Jason for your wedding day! You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Jason for giving us so many beautiful pictures to help us remember the best day!"

"They have been great so far. The price can't be beat. My fiancé and I were unsure on poses for engagement photos but Joe was so great at knowing exactly what would work for us. Can't wait to see how the wedding goes, but they are so easy to work with."

Nicole and Brock were married on 6-16-17, Jason - Photographer, Ken - Video
"After our first meeting with Joe, my husband and I knew that Studio One was who we wanted to photograph our wedding. Joe wasn't pushy (unlike many other companies we spoke with), the photos/video he showed us were beautiful and prices were great. Our photographer was Jason and our videographer was Ken. Both were great at communicating before the wedding. Jason was so much fun to work with. He has so much energy and our photos turned out gorgeous! We haven't gotten our video back yet, but are excited to see it. I highly recommend using Studio One and Jason for your wedding!"

Jennifer and Jeffrey had this to say on The Knot 6-30-17
"Joe did a wonderful job with our engagement photos. The weather had been rainy the past few days but we decided to keep our appointment. Though it was cloudy and did eventually rain, Joe had a great attitude and we had a lot of fun with him. He was incredibly easy to work with and did a great job of listening to what we wanted. He took beautiful pictures of my fiance and I and I am so happy we chose them as our wedding photographer."
Happy you liked the photos! Thank you!!

"I can't say enough good things about Studio One and Brian. They were extremely easy to work with, good prices, and they had all the options we wanted. The photographer took great photos, he was very engaging and fun to work with. It was great working with Studio One, I would highly recommend them.

"We could not have been happier with Jason; he truly exceeded our expectations as a wedding photographer. We are still receiving compliments from our guests about how great of a job that he did.
Throughout the day, he had such a high level of energy that kept the wedding party and guests in the best mood; his positivity was contagious. There was a period of time during the day that it rained pretty hard, and we were worried about being able to have the ceremony outside. However, Jason waited patiently for the rain to pass, and he then went above and beyond to ensure that he could get the best pictures possible. Jason did not mind standing in the rain to appease the bride and groom and ensure they could have pictures of their dream outdoor ceremony.
I can not praise Jason enough; he is so professional yet personable, and he knows exactly how to work with the bride and groom as well as the wedding party to make the sometimes tedious process of taking pictures entertaining and enjoyable. He is also a very talented photographer, and he has a natural eye for taking the most authentic, beautiful photos. Overall, we were so fortunate to have had him as our wedding photographer because he was so willing to go above and beyond to get the best pictures possible. We will be sure to recommend him to other couples as well as hire him for our vow renewals in the future.
From Linda and Ryan, married 5-28-17 emialed us on 6-20-17 just after their photos were posted
"I just wanted to take the time to let you know how much we appreciated Bill as our photographer. The pictures look great, and Bill was by far the most helpful and fun to be around vendor at the wedding. His skill and patience cannot be understated. He took candid shots just as requested, and everything turned out beautiful. He is a real asset to studio one and we are thankful that we ended up with him at our wedding. Bill carried a ton of photo gear around like a picture taking ninja, and did anything necessary to get the shot. We just cannot say enough good things about him and his work. Thank you, and thanks to Bill as we are very pleased with the results!
From Heather and Griffin about their Engagement Portrait on 5-27-17, Posted on The Knot 6-14-17
"Joe met us at the Naperville Riverwalk over Memorial Day weekend to take our engagement photos for our wedding on 8/4/17. My fiance was less than thrilled to have to take engagement photos, but we had so much fun. Joe has years of experience with what poses look best so all he really had to do was tell Griffin what to do, and the pictures turned out great. Joe's personality made me feel right at home - a lot like my dad (sorry Joe - not referencing your age but your humor). We goofed off, told jokes, and he was so patient with my mom and sister - our entourage for the session. We also brought our dog for photos - he may have captured her a little too beautifully/perfectly as most of our friends have more to say about her in the pictures than poor 'ole me and Griffin. We cannot wait to have Jason capture our wedding day, though Joe did such a beautiful job capturing photos, that I wouldn't be upset if he was our photographer for the day instead!"
From Julene and Brian, married on 5-28-17, Posted on The Knot 6-13-17
"Without a doubt, the hardest working person at our wedding was our photographer, Jason! From the moment he arrived, he was professional, helpful, and amazingly efficient! We had small children who had previously been uncooperative with having their pictures taken; those small children quickly became Jason's best friends, and were actually demanding to be in different shots! He graciously honored all of our requests for combinations of photos with assorted family members, friends, and coworkers, and he did not leave until he was sure he had gotten every shot on our wish list. We are so excited to see the pictures, and we know he capured some of the best moments of the evening. Thank you, Jason, for being so easy to work with, and for working so hard to get what we know will be amazing pictures!"

This professional studio did a FANTASTIC job on my daughter and son-in-laws wedding in January 2017. From the initial consultation with owner Joe to the Photographer Natalie being the last one to leave the reception!

"The absolute best experience with a photographer.
Joe the owner was quick to respond to our email about our wedding date. He scheduled our appointment quickly, and when we arrived at his studio he showed us albums, videos, and slideshows of the work from the different photographers. We quickly fell in love with the style of Jason. The communication throughout the months leading to our wedding was always within 24 hours if not within hours. They have this down to a science asking you which photos you would like, and have many photo recommendations. Jason called us a few weeks before the wedding and went over the details from the online site (you can make changes throughout the months leading to your wedding) and was really excited to work with us. While this was the first time Jason was at the ceremony location (Anderson japanese Gardens) he truly felt like he knew where he was. The excitement he provided from the moment we got back from our hair appointment Jason was snapping away at us capturing every moment. We had many photos taken with our pets (2 dogs and 2 cats). Trust me that says this guy is good if he can get the cats to look at him, and the dogs appear to smile looking at the camera. The photos came out so beautiful. Look at their work online and in their studio-the outcome is even better!!!!!!! Thank you Joe and Jason! You captured the most important day of our lives!"

We were very happy with our decision to use Studio One Photography. From the beginning, they were very easy to work with, and helped us handle everything over the phone as we lived out of town. We were married over Thanksgiving weekend and received our photos by Christmas!
I would highly recommend Jason. Everyone fell in love with his high energy and fun, genuine attitude. He got some amazing shots and was willing to go above and beyond for anyone that asked. He even made sure to take my husband and I outside for some more artsy and fun shots during the reception. We have so many great photos and the day was perfectly captured.

From Amanda and Jason, married 10-08-16, Posted on The Knot 11-13-16
Joe and his company were amazing to work with. All of our pictures came out beautifully. I was able to talk to both my photographers right before my wedding to tell them exactly what i wanted if there were any types of pictures we needed to have. But with me and my husband we didn't want to tell them how to do their jobs so we let Bill and Natalie do their things and get the best photos they could and we both couldn't be more happy with how things came out. And it was definitely worth every penny. So if you are looking for an amazing company and wonderful photographers and the best pictures ever. Then definitely book with Studio One!

She made being in front of the camera SO easy. Maria also knew when to take the reigns and get things moving, which we loved. Both our engagement photos and wedding photos were beautiful!

From our first visit all the way through the wedding day, we had nothing but great experiences with Joe & Natalie and Brian whom we chose as our photographer on our wedding day. We felt so comfortable with everyone from the first day we stopped by the studio. We also had beautiful engagement photos taken at the Naperville Riverwalk which was included in our photography package. It was such a nice unexpected add-on and our photos turned out great. Joe was amazing to work with for the engagement photos and couldn't thank him enough for everything. Brian (our wedding photographer) was amazing as well. Everyone at our wedding loved him and he quickly felt like he was part of the family. Our wedding pictures came back so fast and were absolutely beautiful. We have been getting so many compliments on the beautiful photography. We cannot say thank you enough to everyone at studio one for making our wedding day truly unforgettable!!"

"Thank you SO much to Brian for being our photographer for our special day! From the moment he walked into our home, he was professional and made us comfortable. He is truly passionate about what he does, and he made us all laugh and smile throughout the entire day! He was creative and thoughtful, always focusing on every detail of each shot. We chose Brian after reading such amazing reviews about him on The Knot and Wedding Wire, and I am so happy that we did! I would recommend him to anyone for their wedding! We cannot wait to see our pictures!! Also, Joe took our engagement photos last fall/winter. We were worried that we waited too long to take them and would not have a great scenery. It was in the middle of fall and winter, so no pretty trees and no snow yet. However, Joe did an amazing job, and I could not have been happier with our engagement photos!! Thank you so much to Joe, Brian, and Studio One!! ?? Mary & Brian "
From Theresa and Scott 5-20-16 Posted on The Knot
First and foremost: What we got for what we spent was amazing! We are SO glad we went with Studio One!!!
Joe from the get go was professional, prompt and courteous. When I met him to tell him what we were looking for in photo and video he asked a lot of questions I hadn't even thought of! And when he showed me example pieces from past weddings, the fact that I could tell that he is touched by other people's marriages after so many years of being in the business won me over completely. He has heart and I respected that. Thank you Joe...
Jason, our photographer was so candid! Just what we needed with our guests! And the kids? psh... they LOVED his antics :) Jason had SO MANY great ideas too! For example: I thought it would be a great idea to get pictures of my guests on the red carpet but he made the red carpet photo opp SO MUCH BETTER when he asked all the guests (unbeknownst to us) to gather along the carpet outside at The Paramount, and as we walked out of the doors together Jason was there flashing his camera while everyone else around was doing the same- paparazzi style! Oh my... it turned out AMAZING! We felt so Hollywood! And when my husband dipped me... it was just picture perfect! Jason, THANK YOU.
And Ken our videographer amazed us with how many great angles he had for the ceremony! As we watched the video my family said 'You had only one videographer, right?' He did a wonderful job as well and was always very cordial over the phone and in person. Ken, thank you kindly.

"Studio One is AWESOME!! I cannot say enough good things about them. They made the process EXTREMELY easy, and their prices you cannot beat. Bill was our photographer and I am beyond thrilled with the results. And the editing by Joe was perfect!
Our ceremony was in the suburbs and reception an hour and a half away. I had a very hard time finding someone that would travel for both. But Studio One had no issues! They're the BEST!!"
From Angie and Rick 5-21-16 Posted on The Knot:
"Very happy with Studio One. Competitive pricing and great people to work with. They say what they will do and do what they say.
Lou was a great photographer for us on our wedding day. Very flexible and personable. We did not have a solid plan for taking photos, but Lou was able to go with the flow and also helped to direct us if/when needed.
Thank you for helping to make memories of our day!"

"I seriously cannot give enough positive feedback about Studio One Photography and Video. From start to end, this company is exceptionally professional and passionate about making sure you have a wonderful memories to last a lifetime. We had Jason as our photographer and Scott as our videographer and they were absolutely excellent. These guys work extremely hard and really know how to make you feel like the star of the day. I honestly don't know how they have so much energy, it's incredible. The photos and video were all edited and sent to us in the time they promised. Both Jason and Scott are truly artists. Their work leaves an immediate impression with you. We know that every time we look at our album and video in the years to come, we will instantly be transported back to the best day of our life. Joe, the owner, was a also delight to work with through the entire process. Always eager to answer questions, he went far above and beyond to make sure we had an excellent experience. You can not go wrong with Studio One. They are the real deal. "

"Our experience with Studio One, and particularly our photographer, Jason, was outstanding. I don’t think we could be any happier than we are with how everything turned out. Jason was amazing; he brought with him an energy like no one we’d seen before, even making a few of our guests compare him to the “Energizer Bunny”. He spent the day zipping about, taking candid photos, and a few posed (per our request), and the entire time, seemed to always find ways to get us and our guests to crack a grin and laugh. He stayed with our reception the entire night, until midnight! He loved our suggestions and our Pinterest board, and took shots from it, as well as using it for inspiration for other photos, and we were blown away when they arrived, a few weeks later. They all turned out brilliantly. We would definitely recommend Studio One and Jason in particular! "

Studio One is a great choice to hire for your wedding! Joe, the owner, is excellent at communicating quickly and easily if you have any questions. The photographer we chose was Brian. He had great energy and knowledge of what he was doing. I could definitely tell he's been doing it for a while! The turnaround time on our pictures was FAST and they couldn't have been more beautiful! Thank you, Studio One! We are so glad to have beautiful pictures to remember our special day.
Joe is a great owner and wants to provide his clients with the confidence and assurance that each and every special detail will be captured beautifully. It most certainly was. He offers competitive pricing, which was wonderful for our budget. Moreover, we live and work in Naperville, so it was great that we could use a local business. We are looking forward to using Studio One again for professional photography. They were a pleasure to work with.
From the Wedding Wire by Kara and Brian 9-18-15
The owner Joe was great to work with in regards to getting all of the information needed to make this decision and answered all of my questions. Excellent value for the services provided. Haven't gotten the pictures back yet or my album, but the whole experience up to the wedding and including the wedding was fantastic!!! Maria was our photographer and she was amazing, fun and quick!!! Her assistant photographer Natalie was also fun, fast and energetic!!! My guests kept commenting that we were going to have SO MANY GREAT PHOTOS because they were both everywhere all night so as not to miss a shot!! Thank you for the wonderful service!!
"Excellent photographer and price!
Was thrilled to find Studio One and their photographer Natalie! The prices were hundreds less than what other photographers wanted, and the photos turned out excellent. Natalie was friendly and fun, had great suggestions and was very good with helping people adjust in their poses. All original photos are included in the price, (if you want to buy an album from them it's extra), and I had the originals within three weeks of the event. Really cannot be more pleased with Studio One and Natalie-highly recommend!
Received 10-4-15 on the knot:
Studio One Photography was such a pleasure to work with. Joe did our engagement pictures at RT 66 Raceway and wow were they awesome! He was a blast to work with and he had just as much fun as we did!
Our photographer for the wedding was Jason. Jason was so fun and energetic. He kept everyone smiling. He has ALOT of energy and my husband and I could not of picked a better photographer. Jason was EXTREMLY detailed orientated the entire day! He NEVER got lazy! Not once did he seem annoyed or in a hurry to get a shot. As someone who has been in a lot of weddings prior to my own I can tell you that there is nothing worse then a photographer who gets annoyed with the wedding party. Jason was always smiling and laughing right there with us and was a constant pleasure to every one of our guests.
My husband and I hoped for an outdoor ceremony but it rained. I was bummed a tad on the day of the wedding because I would not have "pretty pictures outside"... but when I saw our wedding pictures I was so happy because he managed to capture the entire day beautifully. I am very very happy with all our pictures! He has an amazing eye for an amazing photo shot! Jason, We can not thank you enough for all our awesome wedding pictures! We will be recommending you to everyone we know! You truly captured our day from start to finish! Thank you Studio One! Received on the knot 9-22-15 from Becki and Bryan, wedding date 8-29-15
Studio One was amazing!! They are extremely nice and easy to work with. We went with Maria and she is fantastic! It rained on the wedding but the pictures are even better that way! She is fun and very professional at the same time!"
We just received this from Darryl and Shalee wedding date 8-8-15 Studio One really came through! posted 9/1/2015 (updated 9/1/2015) This is only the second time I have ever used a professional photography service and I am so glad I chose Studio One. Their service was top notch and completely professional from start to finish! Their online technology really helped to make everything flow without a hiccup. Joe was absolutely awesome, and was very accommodating in answering all of our questions and concerns. While I don't plan to get married again.....I would definitely not hesitate to use Studio One for any other event where I need/want it professionally photographed. I especially loved the post editing they did on our photos, very cool stuff. But I have to say most of all, we had the absolute most creative, fun, hard working and personable photographer in Marie! She made it all come together and did anything and everything to "Get the shot". She was a constant ball of energy the entire day and she will be my choice again next time we use Studio One. Thank you Joe, Marie and everyone at Studio One for documenting my wedding day in pictures. It was perfect!
Meredith and Chris was married 8-2-15 They just left us this note on "The Knot"
We used Brian from Studio One. Brian has a great eye and an even better personality. Everyone who attended our ceremony and reception said how much they enjoyed him. The process for taking posed pics was fun and didn't keep us from our guests. Our candids came out so wonderfully too - there are some pics of the kids that are completely precious.
Joe is a great owner and wants to provide his clients with the confidence and assurance that each and every special minute and detail will be captured - which it was. He offers competitive pricing which was wonderful for our budget. Moreover, we live and work in Naperville, so it was great that we could support a local business. We are looking forward to using Studio One again for professional photography. They were a pleasure to work with.
Katie and Jordan just wrote us on "The Knot" about their wedding on 7-18-15
"Studio One was fantastic! They communicated very well prior to the wedding, whether it was answering questions via phone or email. The photographer we chose was Brian. He was AWESOME! He had very high energy (but not too much) and we could tell he had done this many times before. We couldn't be any more pleased than we are with our pictures. Our friends and family love them, too! Thank you! "
Nicole and Niko just wrote us about their wedding August 1, 2015:
My name is Nicole and my wedding day was August 1st 2015. I was really nervous about having to take a lot of pictures since I do pretty bad at fake smiling. Our photographer was Jason, who was absolutely amazing! I could not ask for a better photographer. He was hilarious and was a huge hit with everyone, their wasn't one person that he didn't make smile. He also went with the flow of things very easily. My bridal party had suggested an idea about a photo and he took it and ran with it. He was also very accommodating- even squeezing in a picture with one of my dogs. I would recommend him to anyone- he definitely contributed to my special day in a wonderful way. Thank you!

My name is Leslie and my wedding day was May 24, 2015. My photographer was Jason. I also had Scott, but he is a ninja and I only saw him once or twice throughout the night. Jason is amazing. If you want to continue to smile throughout the entire night, Jason is your guy. He is so full of energy and he had me laughing non-stop. I feel I connected with him pretty well and was super comfortable with him constantly around… even when I was getting dressed. He is not one of those photographers who is right up in your face 24/7, but he does maneuver around you to get every shot that he wants that would be perfect for your big day. He is ALWAYS watching, too. Be careful. I made some goofy faces and he had snapped his camera too many times. He is quick. If you want to be stress free on your wedding day and not have to worry about your photographer pissing you off, then you need to hire Jason. I love this guy!

He had so much energy and creative ideas it made taking pictures actually enjoyable! So happy we went with Studio One and Jason!! "
