So I guess their wedding anniversary is every 4 years??
Hey John Thank You so much for your videos your confidence and knowledge are so encouraging! I used your code and signed up for skill share 🙂 YAY I have already learned so much!!
Honestly man, THANK YOU SO MUCH for this! This was life-changing, no joke haha
This was SO incredibly helpful, I’m shooting my first wedding this weekend and feel way less overwhelmed and nervous. Thank you so much for putting this together and sharing!!
Wow you are amazing!
I know it’s been said many times, many ways, but Grandma @ 1:19:10 🤣 made my day
you have problems with the colors of the photos You need a professional photo editor . I can help you.Thank you so much
okay ITS PERFECT!!!
awesome work bro…. I am not pro and I am looking for something like this for my brother's upcoming wedding…. thanks a ton…
Grandma at the end upset with the lady 😡😂
You´re amazing my friend, tomorrow will be my first wedding now I feel more confident after watching these videos!! Thanks a lot!!
Amazing BTS video buddy.
A question I have for you is, what ISO do you generally use to attain these natural light shots? I do know every camera is different but what is the guideline.
Fantastic video John. Thanks so much for spending the time to edit this down and show your day shooting. The images are excellent. Well done.
Thank you man , you said it all learned a lot
Aweeesome video, thank you!!!
Alright! Loved this behind the scenes. You totally earned the “Subscribe” from me. Love your stuff 🙌🏾
Man, this video is amazing. You're a fantastic photographer and YouTuber.
Great insight into how you shoot
compared to the weddings i have shot this one seems you had a couple where the photos were a huge priority and allowed plenty of time
I have never had this much time with them as there timings are really tight
good to see the other side of weddings and that everyone is different
You should try something else with the shoes, stack one tipped sideways on the other, you make them look pigeon toed!
Gorgeous shots ❤️
I love your content! 😍 I am shooting a wedding this weekend and this video makes me so much more comfortable and relax!
Do you have mobile presets for lightroom ? also ?
You know John knows what he is talking about when he says the thing he looks for first and foremost is the light and THEN the background. correctomundo. Just love all this.
Also (and now I love John totally): some shots were a little bit blurry but "honestly, the moments matter more…" YESSSSS. Then, the part about "relationships" and making portraits. John's advice is real and true.
John! Its amazing
John I watched this again for the third time! Really digging your mindset man! I had a question about Fuji's AF. I know for the moving shots you are on AF/C and Zone focusing. What about the rest of the day? Single Point for AF? Focus and Recompose or move the little box around?
BTW I did jump to Fuji because of your influence! Thank you for your amazing videos!
So when shooting the gown in the window with available light, how do you keep from blowing out the window when exposing for the white gown? Do you fix that in Lightroom? I usually shoot HSS to control it. I'll have to try it your way. Looks great!
You can take sofa on left and bed on right to create composition in shots.
Great job, John!!! Congrats!
John, I want to ask you – are you using your second card slots to spill over or to back up the primary card? I noticed your 2nd photographer is doing a really good job of backing you up on every set of shots. Very cool.
Wow so inspiring!
Thanks very much for sharing this incredible BTS
Love your presets Bro, do you sell them?
