  • I didn’t get to meet Wayne until my wedding day when I was already done up and stepping out of the car at the location for our first look photos. The moment I met him, he put me at ease and made me feel excited for the shoot! I was late, so he and my husband had already taken some pictures. Wayne was running back to his car to grab something when I was climbing out of mine. He took one look at me, grinned, and said, “Well, you look like a bride!” I chuckled and gave some less-than-witty response, but instantly knew it was gonna be a great experience! When my mom had found him, she loved that he can work with any lighting because he knows how to use flash. That really came through in our pictures. Also, he was willing to work with us when he realized that we wanted to do our first look photos in Glacier National Park. It added more hours to his wedding package, but he was willing to offer more hours in trade for other parts of the package that we didn’t want! Wayne and his p... Read more

  • My Husband and I chose JMK Photography before we even met him, I was astounded by his work. We met for coffee and afterwards we knew that we made the right choice. Talking to Wayne was just like talking to a friend! He created and shared a timeline for us and our DJ, he was so professional and helpful! We are more than pleased with how all our photos turned out. I highly recommend JMK Photography!

  • Wayne was a life saver for my husband and I in Montana! I had booked a different photographer all by Internet and going in blindly from Tennessee! With our photographer canceling on us the day of the photo shoot, Wayne with JMK Photography was there to rescue us! He not only agreed to take our wedding photos at the last minute, he also give us a more than reasonable price! We traveled with him for over 4 hours having wonderful conversation about life, family and Christ to the perfect spot for our photo shoot. Wayne did whatever it took to give us our “once in a lifetime” pictures that we had wanted. From sitting in partial water, laying on the ground, to coaching us with every shot, we now have absolutely breathtaking moments that we will always treasure! He was professional, personable, a Godly man, and very easy to work with. We are more than grateful for JMK Photography and Wayne and would recommend him to anyone traveling to the MT area.

    Thank you so much Codi! I really had a great time with both of you! What a crazy fun day and road trip into the park! Blessings!

  • Wayne is THE BEST! Not only does he provide incredible photos I've never seen from another photographer he is just as excellent at follow up and follow through. Our wedding was out of town for me and he was able to meet multiple times last minute to look at the site and ensure he'd be able to capture just the right images. On the day he was on time and constantly running around to catch everything...we love him! Will absolutely hire him for any other event I may do in the future, thanks Wayne for helping us capture our wedding so beautifully.

  • Top notch photographer that captured us as individuals through the photos he took. We were married in Glacier Park and had a delay in our ceremony because of the bus transportation. He not only took amazing pictures but helped get our ceremony back on track. His ability to capture light into photography is phenomenal. We cannot recommend him enough!

  • Wayne helped take the stress out of our big day by being easy going and having fun. We could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our special moments. Thank you Wayne for catching parts of our day I would never have seen without you, and for capturing those moments we will never forget. ~ Jordan and Seth Simkins

  • Wayne is the absolute best photographer out there! We are so happy we chose him for our engagement and wedding photos! We love every single one. All of our family and friends kept telling us how awesome he was at our wedding. Wayne even jumped on a snowboard and took photos of us snowboarding in our wedding attire! Those photos are definitely my favorite and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else capture our day! We traveled from Bismarck ND to Red Lodge MT for our wedding and Wayne traveled to redlodge as well. We will definitely make a trip back to Montana for some family photos! I definitely recommend JMK photography for all your photography needs!

  • JMK Photography did my daughters engagement and wedding photos. The pictures are so amazing. There was a great mix of fun and serious pictures. He was wonderful getting the 2 year old sign barer and 5 year old flower girl to pose - you should see the pictures, they are perfect! Wayne is such a nice man, easy to talk to and fun to be around. Not once did I feel like he was in the way, yet he didn't miss anything! I totally and completely recommend him - you will not be sorry!

  • There are no real words to explain how amazing Wayne was. I was initially very worried about finding a photographer because I live in Colorado and the wedding was in Whitefish MT. I was also scared to just look at portfolios of photographers because my sister in law choose a photographer for her wedding that showed beautiful work. Yet, when she finally received her wedding pictures she cried because they were so bad. I started my search by looking at photographers portfolios and narrow it to three photographers. Then I called each photographer. Wayne was upbeat and answered all my questions. When I expressed my concerns he was able to show empathy and he walked me through his process. He even created a custom package for us. During the big day Wayne was with us every step of the way and I didn't even know it! When we were taking posed pictures he made sure that we had fun with the process and let us be us. ( I could also tell that he loves his work). I also loved how he aske... Read more

  • Loved everything about Wayne and his work. First of all, my husband and I met with him a couple days before to discuss ideas and themes we may want. He had such amazing creativity and was very open to the pictures we wanted to try. We also laughed as we came up with some fun ideas which have been a big hit with our friends and family. As we were getting ready, Wayne was very professional (and patient) capturing all of the fun and exciting moments to the emotional ones. Our wedding was in Whitefish in January and Wayne braved the cold and snow, crawling through it at times for low angle photos! He does such an amazing job with lighting and angles that every picture is a keeper! Wayne is also a very kind person. The power went out in Whitefish, knocking out the music at our reception. Wayne was kind enough to take the batteries from his gear and lend them to the DJ to get the party going again. We would recommend Wayne and JMK Photography for any of your photo needs!! Thank you ... Read more

  • We deeply regret hiring JMK photography for our wedding. So many details and special moments were missed throughout the day. The only picture of our cake is out of focus, there are several guests that aren’t in a single picture (I specifically requested photos of guests), tons of reception details weren’t photographed, and overall, we’re really disappointed with several of the photos we ended up with. The lack of attention to detail in our pictures blows my mind (compared to Wayne’s other work). We paid extra for a second photographer and she was nice but judging by the quality of her pictures, very inexperienced. Every picture she took is grainy. There are several gaps in photos where we’re not sure where the photographers were and why they weren’t taking pictures. Wayne arrived early, but then when it was the designated time for our getting ready pictures, we had to wait because both photographers were grabbing lunch. Wayne told us he would scope out a second loc... Read more

    Dear Ashley, I was very hurt when I saw this review and quite honestly didn't know how to respond — which is why this response comes so late. I always try to go above and beyond for my brides and your wedding was no different. I put an enormous amount of care an attention into your wedding to ensure that you had the best possible experience. I know you and I have discussed at length the photos from your wedding and I'm so sorry you weren't pleased. I even went so far as to show your photos to the other wedding photographers in my area to try and learn where I may have fallen short. Regardless, I wish you and Carl all the best. -  Wayne
