We got our wedding album in our hands tonight. It is amazing (and heavy 😆 )! Thank you John Martinez Sr. for bringing it over and again for capturing these incredible moments that we can look back on over and over. ❤

When it comes to photography, there’s a whole lot of average, and it’s easy to make the wrong choice. With John Martinez you will quickly realize that his work is head and shoulders above anything you had seen before. I drooled over his portfolio and I assure you that his pictures are insanely good! Anyone who is lucky enough to use him will not be disappointed at all. John has an incredible gift with his ability to see the beauty in a moment. He will make you feel like a star directing enough to get the perfect shots and new moments. He has clearly mastered the difficult art of event photography and is a wonderful guy to work with. His photographs tell a story that bring back feelings to reflect upon and treasure forever and there is no one else but him that I would trust to capture those precious memories. I highly recommend!

John is AMAZING! I used him as my wedding photographer and I was NOT disappointed. He traveled overnight to our destination wedding and did not even up charge. He captured every cherished moment beautifully and I am forever grateful for the work that a John has done. I highly recommend his work and hopefully will get the chance to work with him again in the future. OUTSTANDING

My husband and I were married in October 2017. John was our photographer. He walked us through everything and we decided all that we wanted. The day of, he caught a lot of great shots. So many in fact that it took as until now to decide on our wedding album photos. (Most brides have this done right away but John was patient and kind. He didn’t rush me or give me a hard time about getting it done. He didn’t make me feel stupid even though I’m sure some of my questions were.). I would HIGHLY recommend him. Also, we got our flash drive in the mail today with our images on it and looked through them again all excited. Our album will be here in about 6 weeks (because it’s coming from Italy). That day is going to be awesome too because John will hand deliver it. I’m sure I’ll cry! If you are looking for a photographer John will not disappoint.

A few years ago I needed images of the highest quality to support professional and personal activities. John Martinez was recommended to me for this project and my expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded. John goes the extra mile, setting up the image, wardrobe, makeup, lighting, everything – capturing images that tell a story. If you are looking for the absolute highest quality at an excellent value, look no further than John Martinez Photography.

John has been our family and business photographer for the past several year. He is one of the best photographers I have ever used and is extremely friendly and professional. I highly recommend him for any of your family affairs or business needs.

We had John take our professional photos for our insurance agency. He was so incredibly personable & made each employee feel at ease which made the photos come out great! We use his photos for our Facebook page, website & email. In fact, I was so happy with his work that we hired him to also photograph my nephew for his senior year! I certainly recommend.

John was one of the first photographers I worked with when developing my portfolio and I wasn’t disappointed. He is very knowledgeable about modeling and photography and extremely professional. We were able to produce some great images and his turn around time is fantastic. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

We had a wonderful experience with John Martinez Photography. He took us off-site to beautiful locations with idyllic scenery for nature’s perfect backdrops. Our photographs turned out flawlessly and they were sent to us digitally, and they were also hand delivered on a thumb drive. We received great quality and at very reasonable rates. In the end, we received much more than just our pictures, ..we gained a new lifelong friend.

I’ve recommended his services to everyone and his stunning photos are a testament to his work ethic and talent.

The highest quality photography you can find anywhere! John’s work evokes high fashion, celebrity status. I recommend him to anyone I know seeking the BEST quality for weddings, head shots, fashion portraits, family portraits, and everything in between.

John Martinez has done my family pictures for many years. He has a remarkable eye and has captured precious moments of my family. He makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera therefore is able to capture genuine happiness and joy. John’s eye for detail sets him apart from the competition. He wants to capture the natural essence of his subject to showcase his/her/their story in pictures.

If you are in need of professional photos, or personal ones for that matter, John Martinez needs to be your go to guy. He has a great eye for detail, knows how to bring out your personality, and gets it done efficiently.

Being in front of a camera has always been WAY outside of my comfort zone; but because John is truly gifted at and passionate about what he does, I was able to relax and enjoy the process. Make it a priority to contact him, you’ll be glad you did.

John Martinez Sr. You did an amazing job with Michelle. There is one photo that if nobody knows her they will say WOW, great shot, but for those of us that truly know her, it is a OMGRACIOUS photo. You can see the depths of her soul, the hurt and pain, the love, and just life in it. It is a magical photo!!

John recently did my business headshots and I couldn’t be happier. He had professional make up and hair on site to make me look like a million bucks! I am not someone that loves the camera but his professionalism and easy going attitude had me feeling like a pro! I now refer him to everyone I know that needs business shots or family photos.

To Whom it May Concern:

John Martinez was extremely professional in his work photographing my wedding and preparing my wedding albums. All of my dealings with John were extremely pleasant. He was more than happy to honor my special requests for the albums design.

John arrived early at the ceremony site and worked diligently to document the entire day from the preparations through the reception. He moved like a ninja throughout the proceedings to capture the memories from all angles. His work was unbelievably artistic and beautiful.

The final albums were the most beautiful works of art imaginable. We opted for the large, metallic album and two parents albums. The final products were absolutely breathtaking. The metallic album will be a highly cherised heirloom which we will pass on to future generations. I highly recommend John Martinez Photography to anyone looking for a beautiful photograph.

Hello John!

These wedding photos are absolutely the most beautiful I have ever seen ! The spirit of the event and the emotions of everyone are captured so wonderfully! The joyous bride is my neice, all others are precious family and friends. Your bio could not have said it better! ‘Let your work speak for you’. Thank you so much!

I just received my wedding photography package and I just hope my tears of joy don’t short circuit the keyboard as I type! Everything is way past any expectation that I had! I have just showed the wedding album to my co-workers and the compliments made me feel like it was my wedding day all over again! I will be passing out your information to all of my friends and family and have already passed it on to several of my co-workers who have asked if you will come to the DC area!

Thank you so much and I intend to speak with you in the future for family events! P/S I had to call my husband at work and tell him to hurry home! I can’t wait for him to see the wedding album!

Hello John,

I know that you don’t normally get these kind of emails at midnight but I wanted to tell you again how much I love my wedding album! My husband Tony, is in Virginia doing some training, he has been gone for two weeks now. I miss him like crazy already! Tonight is the second time that I have viewed the wedding album since he left. It makes me feel so good to look at it! Thank you so much for all of the work that you did for us, I really enjoy my wedding album and really like showing it off! 🙂 I love the album and all of the things that it reminds me of. I will not get to see or talk to Tony, so looking at the pics and seeing us laughing and having fun is great! I love my album! Thanks John!
