"Working with Josh couldn’t have been better. He responds to texts and emails very quickly, he tailors a photography package to meet your needs, and he is incredibly flexible. Throughout the entire process I felt that Josh catered to my vision. When my husband and I met with Josh the first time, he put us at ease and listened to what we wanted to happen. He made our wedding day beautiful. He captured beautiful candid moments that normally only exist in memories. I love my photos. Only two days after my wedding, I already have 41 edited digital files. In short, working with Josh was a dream. If I had to do it all again I’d choose him again for sure."
Joshua was hired to photograph when I proposed to my (now) wife. I will admit, I was neurotic and nervous proposing to my (now) wife, but Joshua never once judged me, got frustrated with me, or made me feel as if I was a bridezilla in the making. Instead, he made the whole process very easy and comfortable because he has such a calming persona that it helped me as I prepped for a milestone in our lives. He took the time to understand both of our personalities and our relationship, along with our story, to give an extra personal touch to the experience. It felt like I was talking to a friend and not a hired vendor. Because our proposal photos came out so amazing we knew we had to hire him for our wedding.
We are same-sex Indian couple and Joshua took into consideration our need for privacy as well as making our wedding guests feel comfortable. He, again, took the time to learn about our cultural background and itinerary for our wedding weekend. We told him what parts of our wedding celebrations were most important for us to capture and the people we wanted to be photographed with. His photography truly tells our 2 day wedding story and every time we look at the pictures, it's as if we are right back in the moment.
Joshua is very respectful, whether it is with the couple or elderly guests or even small children. He is very professional, responsive, and genuinely interested in making special moments last beyond the day of the event.
Joshua was genuinely happy for us and it came through with every interaction (by phone, email or in person) and photography click. With Joshua you get more than just a vendor, you get a photographer for life because he someone you can trust with a great value.
Josh was wonderful to work with! From the beginning he was excellent at communicating with us and always got back to us within 24 hours (although it was often much sooner). He has such a gentle and kind soul and will instantly put you at ease. My now-husband and I tend to avoid pictures being taken of ourselves because we're the most awkward people ever but Josh helped us feel really comfortable and the photos turned out beautiful. On the day of the wedding, my family kept coming up to me to say how Josh was the nicest, most polite photographer they had every met - I think they would have adopted him if they could have!
Josh also has a great, artistic eye for setting up shots with interesting lighting, textures, etc. We were thrilled with how our engagement photos and wedding preview photos came out (which we got less than a week after our wedding). Josh's style is more candid/photojournalistic which we really liked but if you ask him he will do more formal shots/poses (which I requested to appease my family). All in all, Josh was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend him!
“I'm from Florida and planned on proposing to my girlfriend while in Washington DC. Josh not only took the time to offer suggestions as to where I would propose, but seemed to genuinely care about our story and how he could capture it. I think the longest he ever took to reply to a text or email was less than a few hours. I proposed at the POV rooftop lounge in DC. He managed to fit in with the crowd and capture the whole dinner leading up to the proposal on film, without my girlfriend even noticing he was there. The quality of his photographs can only be described as Supreme. I wish I was having my wedding up there so that he could capture it.
Overall a great, friendly, flexible photographer with a great work product.”

“Josh’s photographs are exceptional, as are his people skills. We were among 200 guests of all ages and many backgrounds at a recent wedding and Josh charmed everyone while taking absolutely beautiful pictures. He’s an impressive photographer and highly likeable person.”
PHILIP, wedding guest
"I am an a high level amateur photographer and I met Josh at a photography workshop which was very advanced and required us to develop a lot of skills. I got to know Josh a little better in a professional setting after the workshop and watched his photos posted on his blog and instagram, and I had high expectations in hiring him. But you never know how it will turn out. Josh really exceeded my expectations. In short, Josh is not just a photographer, he's an artist. He is also incredibly easy going. Josh shot me and my wife for our big event and while we are not very comfortable posing and self conscious, he not only made the experience enjoyable and produced great photos, but we would love to do it again! Plus he made it so easy to cull through our photos. He even went ahead and did some pre-editing for us as a bonus because HE was excited, too! I don't know what more you could ask for. Oh and the weather on the day of our shoot was not the greatest. Did it matter to Josh? Nope and his photo quality was absolutely incredible. I almost forgot to mention that we even went to the wrong location in town to shoot photos which blew 30 minutes of time, but Josh didn't bat an eye. He figured out where we were (incorrectly) located and came to us. Our experience was so positive! It's just a pleasure to write these kinds of reviews."
