JohnLo Photography?

Hi everyone, I'm planning my wedding from afar (I live in Ga at the moment, and we are getting married in RI next June) which makes booking some of the vendors difficult, since we can't meet them! My fiance and I really liked John LoConte's work online, and we are considering booking him, but it makes me nervous to book a vendor without getting to meet them first! So my question is- any JohnLo brides out there? I'd love to hear about your experience with him, was he good at making you comfortable in front of the camera, good at blending in the background, listening to your ideas, getting all the shots you wanted, etc? Thanks in advance...any feedback would be a great help!

    I have him booked for my wedding in Sept 2010 I haven't met him yet either.. I booked him based on his online work and reviews and from talking with him Via Email. I can tell you he is very professional and has been great to work with so far. He emails back very promptly and mails out all the paperwork in a timely manner. I know there are a few other brides on here that have him booked as well so hopefully they can answer more of your questions! GL

    Eileen....he is HIGHLY recommended on here and Wedding WIre.  FI and I thought his work was great online, and we are meeting him in person on Tuesday night. I will let you know how it goes, but from the sounds of his emails and everyone else's experiences, we are booking him on the spot!

    John is absolutely fantastic to work with! He did our engagement pics (check them out on his website or my bio) and he is just a super fun guy, really cares about his work, and takes amazing pictures. You can't go wrong with him! And his prices are amazing!

    I was having a hard time with photographers, since I like in NC right now. I had scheduled an appointment with him but before we could even meet, he booked another couple. It was super disappointing, because he was our top choice at the time. I would recommend at least having a phone call or see if he will skype with you, if you really like him. If that is not enough and you want an appointment, just beware that he may not warn you if someone else is interested in your date. HTHGood luck with the planning!

    HI, he was our photographer for our wedding. I met him in person and booked him that day. I loved his positive reviews from people here on the knot and honestly, his prices were unbeatable! I had the check in hand when I met him and then meeting him sealed the deal for me. John is soo friendly and soo personable. If you want to see the pics he took from my wedding you can go to his blog and last I checked, we are the first one listed from the top "Dina and Kevin" My husband loved him and he really took great shots. Also, I met a lot of photographers for my wedding before choosing, and he is the only person who brought with him and entire album from one wedding. Most photographers show you their best work from a variety of weddings. I am wicked Type A personality and planned my wedding in 12 weeks. I had very little time to book a photographer and was trying to secure a photographer for the busiest month here in New England,but yet I wanted the best, and I still visited/met/searched for a good photographer. Trust me - he is worth booking, even if you can't meet him in person. You've seen his work already and know you like it. When I met him in person, it was just the perfect match. I wouldn't lie to you!!! I swear! He's great!
