Frequently Asked Questions


What makes your work different from other photographers’ work?

I take all of my photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible but also love taking shots at night. My sessions are candid and fun!

Will we get the right to print our photos after our wedding?

Yes! Upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release.

How many photographers will be there at our wedding?

I will always be the lead photographer at your wedding. In order to get multiple perspectives and extra shots of all of the details, a second is suggested but not required.

Are the couples on your site models?

Haha! While I am lucky enough to work with gorgeous couples, the images shown on my site and blog are of regular, paying clients.

How do we reserve our date?

Send me an email at john@johnwintersphoto.com, and I can give you more information on this. A 50% deposit and signed contract is required in order to get your wedding day on the calendar. Two weeks prior to your wedding, the remainder of the balance is due.

Do I have to order prints through you?

I highly recommend ordering prints through my professional vendors, but it is not required. The difference in quality is HUGE when it comes to ordering through a local printer and a professional lab, so I encourage clients to let me help with prints!

What equipment do you use?

I use all of the best Canon equipment - two 5D Mark IVs, 24-70 mm lens, 50 mm, 85 mm, 100 mm macro, and the 70-200 mm lens, among other items . All of my pieces have a backup in the rare event that anything should occur to one of my cameras or lenses. Getting dark outside? No worries. I have plenty of lights for every situation.
