  • John Munno completely exceeded our expectations for a wedding photographer in every single way. From our first conversation with John we knew we needed him to be our photographer. He was warm, friendly, easy to talk to and extremely helpful before we even put down our deposit. Our engagement shoot was the first time we met him and we were instantly impressed with his talent and diligence. He made us feel comfortable right away and had a great eye for where the best picture spots would be. He captured all kinds of amazing lighting and the pictures were gorgeous. Our engagement shoot location was almost two hours away from him and he still stayed an extra hour with us at no extra cost just to fit in some extra sunset photos at no extra cost. After our engagement shoot we had about a year until our wedding and we kept in touch with John often. Since we got married during the pandemic, we had lots of logistical questions about how to plan our wedding and what to expect for a covid wedding... Read more

    Thanks Megan for your most awesome review!! WOW, WOW and more WOW. It has been great corresponding with you over the last year leading up to the time when I finally got to meet you and Anthony for your engagement session at Harkness State Park. Thanks for all your prep work leading up to your shoot, including sharing photos from other photographers to give me a clear idea of your vision for your session. Thanks for your flexibility to go through two date changes due to in climate weather. When sharing your vision for your engagement shoot, I wanted to wait till we had the best lighting and weather for your session. I am so glad I did. Everything came together for an amazing engagement session. You and Anthony were a joy to work with and were very comfortable being in front of the camera. It was so effortless and enjoyable shooting with you both. The lighting kept getting more and more amazing and I am so glad that I could get photos from so many locations starting up at the mansion and then slowly working our way down to the beach as the sun set. It was a timeless summer day in the company of two amazing people. Looking forward to your wedding day!

  • John was the most thorough and on top of things photographer possible! He not only did an amazing job on our photos (engagement AND wedding) but throughout the process was there every step of the way supporting us and working with us on Covid regulations! We are in love with all of the moments he captured and would highly recommend him to anyone! He also is incredibly timely and had our photos to us MUCH faster than any of our friends experienced with their weddings! Two weeks later and we are able to view our entire gallery! Highly high recommend to anyone in need of a photographer!

    Thank you so much Stephanie for your fantastic review. It has been great to travel on this journey with you starting with your engagement session and through 2020 with all the changes in wedding dates and scheduling that we had to do. You both have been such a joy to work with and it has been so beautiful to witness the love you have shared with each other through it all. I commend you on your courage to navigate through this difficult year with Covid and to create such a wonderful wedding celebration at The Heritage Hotel. I am so glad you love your photos. It was a real joy taking them, editing them and preparing them for you both. Thanks again and wishing you and Matt all the love you both deserve!!

  • We booked John for our upcoming wedding in October and had the pleasure of having an engagement session last week. Words can’t describe how happy and excited we are to have John as a photographer! From the moment we had our initial zoom meeting, we could tell John was the right fit for us. During our session, John was able to give us direction and guidance, which really helped us to loosen up and feel comfortable. We also spent a lot of time laughing! A couple hours after the session, John had some sneak peeks for us! They were just BEAUTIFUL. In just four days, John both called and e-mailed us to let us know that our pictures were ready. I have never experienced such a quick turn around before! We didn’t have 30 photos, but almost 200! All of the pictures are STUNNING! Looking forward to our engagement book and displaying them in our home. We can’t wait for John to capture our memories on our wedding day! Thank you so much John, we absolutely LOVE our engagement pictures. If you... Read more

    Thank you so much Ashley for your amazing review. Wow!! I am so glad you LOVE your photos and had a great experience. I want the couples I work with to have a great experience as this is such a special time in your lives. It was wonderful to photograph you and Chris’ engagement session. You did a great job and made for such a fun session. It was wonderful spending the time with you and getting to know you more. I am so glad you liked the same day sneak peaks and fast turn-around on the editing and delivery of your photos. I still edit every photo myself so I can get right to work to make sure you receive your photos as soon as possible. Your photos came out great, STUNNING is a good word and I can’t wait to design your engagement book. I am looking forward to your wedding day in October. I will be counting the days. Thanks so much again for taking the time to leave such a fantastic review. In Light, John Munno

  • We just received our photos from our engagement shoot with John and we couldn't be happier. He listened to the vision we had and picked the PERFECT spot for the photos. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera which was such a relief. He was very flexible and responsive when planning the shoot, and we got over 100 AMAZING photos in just over 1 week. We can't wait for him to photograph our upcoming wedding. I would definitely recommend John to anyone who asks!

    Dear Erin, Thanks for your great review. I am so glad you like your photos and was pleased that the location matched your vision for your engagement session. I had a sense it would be a great fit. The trails, bridge, stream, forest and walkways made for a great setting and the beautiful late afternoon light and colorful reflections on the lake were the icing on the cake. I enjoyed spending time with you and Mike and getting to know more about you. You both did a great job of enjoying each other and the moment, making for lots of beautiful engagement shoot photos. They will make great save the date cards and I can't wait for your wedding day.

  • We hired John as our wedding photographer for our wedding next summer. A couple of weeks ago we did our engagement shoot with him. He did an excellent job and got our pictures (over 200 for a one hour session) to us in a week, which is incredibly fast. Looking forward to continue working with him!

    Thanks Gina for your review. It was great to photograph your engagement session at Sherwood Island State Park. I loved the beach and rose theme that you and Nicholas created. The golden hour lighting was wonderful and added so much to your photos. I am so glad you like the number of photos I provided. You had so many magic moments and I always like to give my clients at least 100 photos for their engagement shoots and incorporate a number of different backgrounds, angles and perspectives. I like to complete my editing of all weddings and engagement shoots by two weeks so you aren’t waiting long for your photos. It was fun working with you and Nicholas and you did an awesome job!! look forward to photographing your wedding day in 2021.

  • We feel very lucky to have had John take photos at our intimate wedding ceremony. He went completely above and beyond and we are so thoroughly pleased with the work he did. John is an incredibly responsive person, which was very helpful as our plans changed slightly as we approached our wedding day. On top of that, he made himself very available in the weeks leading up to our wedding to touch base and make sure we were on the same page regarding what types of photos/what sorts of moments we wanted to capture. On the day of, he was on-time and completely unobtrusive, doing an excellent job to capture our precious moments. All in all, we couldn't be more thrilled (and his pricing is very reasonable too!). We got our photos in an incredibly quick turn-around and the moments he captured were truly gorgeous. We couldn't be more pleased with John and the services he offered. He was a completely stress-reducer and the photos will be cherished for years to come. We thoroughly and whole-hearted... Read more

    Dear Nayab, Thank you so much for your fantastic review! I photograph a lot of large size weddings and they have their place and beauty but the times when I can photograph an intimate weddings as yours is a very special thing. There were some changes and twist and turns in the planning process and leading up to your wedding day and then everything came together so beautifully starting with your getting ready photos, intimate wedding ceremony and portraits at your beautiful home overlooking Candlewood Lake. There was such a space of intimacy, warmth and love filled by your parents and siblings. You and Conor brought the beauty of your cultures into a wonderful mix and melding. I loved your Pakistani dress, jewelry and touches that added so much to your wedding day. The portraits outside on the lake came out really nice and then the scenic ride over the hills and valleys of the Litchfield Hills culminating in a crescendo at the Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington was the sweetest of symphonies. It was the perfect elegant venue for your wedding dinner together with your family, made that much more special decorated for the holidays with Christmas trees, lights and a warm fire pit. So glad we had enough light remaining to capture the portraits of you and Conor and your father in the outdoor gardens before finishing up the portraits in the beautiful library. It was such a magical day and I am so grateful to spend the time with you and your family and capture the precious moments of your intimate wedding day.

  • John was great to work with throughout our entire wedding journey. From engagement photos to the wedding day John was kind, responsive and flexible. He kept us in the loop with all Covid updates. Very caring photographer that I would highly recommend if you want lots of photos on your wedding day that you will get very soon afterwards! He worked so hard on our wedding day in the heat and humidity and did not bat an eye to this! We greatly enjoyed our experience working with John!

    Thanks Christina for your review. Wow!! Your Boho Wedding at Chatfield Hollow Farm was incredible. You did such an amazing job with every detail making for a one-of-a-kind wedding. I know we both worked long and hard through Covid to make it all happen and yes it all came together beautifully. You and Mike were so much fun to work with and made for a great wedding day. I am so glad you like the fast turn around time on your photos. I know important it is for clients to receive their photos without waiting too long so I strive for a 2 weeks turn around on all my editing so you can enjoy your photos sooner than later. Thanks again for the wonderful journey working together through what turned into a few years. I enjoyed being your photographer and capturing the beautiful moments of your engagement session and wedding. Wishing you and Mike all the best. Keep sharing the Love.

  • We chose John Munno for our wedding in April 2021, and we just had the pleasure of doing our engagement photos with him at Southford falls. It couldn’t have gone better. We did our shoot on a Thursday and he had over 200 beautiful photos back to us by Saturday afternoon. All our friends and family were extremely impressed by the quality and it’s been tough narrowing it down to just a few pictures for the save the dates. John did a great job finding good lighting and gorgeous scenery for our pictures and we’re excited to see what he can do for us on our wedding day. Besides for the excellent pictures, one of the best things about him is that he’s been like a mini wedding planner. He has multiple recommendations for DJs, florists, and more. He’s also been very helpful planning out the timeline for getting ready and taking photos on our wedding day. Overall, he’s been fun and fantastic to work with. He seems like an awesome, genuine guy and you can tell he puts a lot of tho... Read more

    Dear Sarah, Thanks so much for your awesome review!! I am so glad we could come up with the perfect waterfall spot to get shots of you and Matt at Southford Falls. It was fun laughing with you both and seeing the humor and love you shared with each other. It came through in every photo. I really enjoyed the time with you both.

    Thanks Marilyn for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you and Benjamin and capturing the beautiful moments of your wedding at the Vyne Restaurant in Middlebury. The weather was so amazing. A perfect summer day. Everything was lush and green and with the flowers all in bloom it made for magical photo taking. I loved the many heart felt moments during your wedding ceremony as well as the family portrait time in addition to the time getting all those great shots with you and Benjamin all around the venue. A beautiful wedding celebration.

  • John is a very talented photographer and a pleasure to work with. The time and attention he gives his customers is unmatchable. He goes above and beyond to produce exactly what you want in your photographs. John really makes sure to get an understanding and ideas of what you arw hoping for. Not only that, but he also helps organize and plan your shoot. For instance, for our wedding he helped plan what times what pictures would take place as well as the group lists of who would be in each photo! He goes above and beyond at a very reasonable price!

    Thanks Justine for your fantastic review!! It has been great working with you to help bring your wedding vision to reality. I thank you for your efforts to communicate your vision through your pinterest pins you sent as well as our wedding planning consultations leading up to your wedding day. It made a big difference and helped make everything come together so beautifully for your wedding day!! We were blessed with such a mild November day for your wedding. The grounds at Crystal Peaks was so beautiful for your outdoor ceremony and portraits with all the brown and gold hues of November. It was such a magical day and I was so glad to capture every moment of it.

  • He was so helpful during the entire wedding planning process. We hired him way before the COVID pandemic and he was with us every step of the way providing guidance and even recommending other vendors he had worked with. His photos came out beautifully and tell the entire story of our magically day and he got them them back to us so quickly he has the fastest turnaround time Ive seen. We will never forget all he’s done for us and we highly recommend his photography services!

    Dear Rachel, Thanks so much for your review! You and Luke have been an absolute joy to work with every step of the way! I am so glad I could provide vendor recommendations from people I have worked alongside with over the years. It makes a big difference when you have your “A” team. Yes, COVID threw a wrench in things not to mention the issues with your previous venue causing you to change venues only a few months before your wedding day. I am glad I could help you through it. I wanted to commend you on putting together such an amazing wedding at Blue Bird farm. Everything worked out so great. You and Luke really did a fantastic job putting everything together. Your bridal party, family and friends were such a joy to work with. The weather was just perfect and everything came together for a really incredible celebration. I am glad I could capture the many moments of your magical day. In Light, John Munno

I don't think he sat down for more than a second, he was constantly snapping pictures, and everyone we talked to said how amazing and personable he was to everyone. I can not wait to see the pictures! The sneak peek we've already seen was just lovely! Would recommend John to everyone we know.

John completed the work with quality and turnaround was as promised (even sooner) and also provided excellent prints for our wedding. All the guests commented how great he was and how easy he made everyone feel in front of the camera. Thank you John for celebrating with us and the wonderful photos! I hope you find the right photographer for your event and highly recommend John to join you/your party and take great photos for lasting memories...

    Thanks Jennifer for your review! I thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer. I am glad I could help you through the changes in your wedding due to Covid. I know that was stressful having to change your wedding venue location on such short notice. Your new venue West Lane Inn was perfect for your intimate wedding minimony. It was great that your family could join from near and far. I enjoyed working with you and your wonderful family. Such a pleasure to be part of your special day!! Wishing you and Paul all the best in your new life!

  • We couldn’t have picked a better person to capture our wedding! John was a joy to speak with from our first phone call. He is knowledgeable about all things weddings, not just photography. Due to COVID my fiancé and I had to postpone our reception and he came to shoot our “minimony” in lieu of our engagement photos. Our pictures came back extremely quickly and they are all gorgeous—not to mention there’s hundreds and hundreds! He is talented, caring, and flexible. He made me feel relaxed the whole day and I can’t wait for him to capture the reception next year. If you’re thinking of hiring John, do it!!!

    Dear Alexandra, Thanks for your review! I know 2020 has been hard on so many couples having to change their wedding plans. But you and Spencer pivoted and downsized your wedding to include your immediate family and chose a special location that was dear to your heart (your family’s beach bungalow in Old Saybrook). Your wedding “minimony” turned out to be such an amazing celebration on the forth of July on the beach. The weather couldn’t have been more amazing and having your wedding out there on the sandbar was such a memorable time. Your photos on the beach with the blue sky, white sands, driftwood and at the local lighthouse came out so awesome. It was such a magical wedding celebration and I am so glad to be able to capture the moments of this magical day!
