  • 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!

  • 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.

  • My fiance and I knew we wanted to work with John from the very first time we talked with him. After finding John on Wedding Wire and looking through his glowing reviews and amazing pictures, we decided to get in touch with him about photographing our wedding. From the first conversation we had with him, John was warm, friendly, kind, attentive and helpful. He talked with us for a while about what we envisioned on our big day and gave us a lot of advice about the timeline of how a wedding normally looks. This was extremely helpful because he was one of the first vendors we contacted and we really were not sure what to expect. After talking to John the first time, we didn't bother to inquire with any other photographers because we knew we had found our guy! After our first consultation, we had about a year until our engagement shoot so we set a date where he would contact us the next year. John contacted us right on time a year later to set up our engagement shoot and offer his advice ab... 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • We are so so so glad we found John! He absolutely made our day truly special. 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.

  • My fiancé and I will be getting married in April 2020 and we just recently had our engagement photo shoot with John. Many of my friends who have had engagement pictures done with other photographers spoke about how awkward it was for them. Ours was anything but. John took the time to get to know my fiancé and I before, during, and after our shoot. He made us feel comfortable and at ease the whole time. His enthusiasm and complementary manner were genuine and heartfelt. He treated this day with the same importance as a wedding and provided us with over 200 beautiful engagement pictures within the week following the photo shoot. All pictures were uploaded in high resolution to a password protected website for us to view and download or share with family and friends as we please. John was the first vendor we hired and right from the start we were confident in that decision. We knew within five minutes of talking to him that he was the right photographer for us. John is honest, perso... Read more

Looking forward to your wedding day!!

  • To start, I sent out quite a few inquiries for an engagement photographer. John immediately stood out to me because he emailed me back right away! I called him shortly after because I LOVED his work I saw online and just HAD to book him. He was busy editing photos but he stopped just to take the time out to assist me. He was so warm and welcoming, and from the moment we spoke I knew my fiancé and I had to book him. John was so friendly, and warm on our engagement shoot. He made myself and my fiancé feel so comfortable. His partner Lana was absolutely incredible. I was wearing a tedious dress and she fixed it just right for me for every photo. Johns price is remarkable compared to the quality of photos and the service he provided us!! I am still in awe. Our pictures are flawless. Thank you so much for making our vision for our engagement photos come to life!!!! Incredible job!!

    Thanks Simone for your awesome review. When I saw you come out of your car wearing that amazing sequined and feathered dress and Akeem looking so stylish in his black pants and patterned jacket, I knew it was going to be an amazing “Town and Country” engagement session. It was so much fun photographing you and Akeem as you turned every head while we walked the streets of Seymour. It was amazing how your outfits complimented with the many-colored buildings and street scenes. At Southford Falls, I was so happy to be able to create the scene you were looking for with the green grass and hills of summer as well as photos at the covered bridge. You did a great job taking direction as well being free to come up with your own poses and moves to make for a beautiful collection of photos. Lonna and I enjoyed meeting you, spending the time together and getting to learn more about you. You were such a beautiful couple to work with and capture the moments of your special day.

  • John Munno was more than a wedding photographer he was like another wedding planner. As a new bride there were a few things I was unsure about and John patiently went through the negatives and positives of everything with me and my husband Ben. He called us, emailed us and just basically gave us nothing but peace of mind and support through everything. As a person who suffers from anxiety John made sure I was comfortable and calm throughout the whole process. Trust me if you want above and beyond service from a kind and caring photographer who delivers on his word John Munno is your guy. All our pictures turned out beautifully we couldn't ask for more. The level of his professionalism is far above expectations. He worked tirelessly to ensure that my husband and I got every picture we requested. At one point it started raining and my husband and I had wanted some outdoor pictures and John arranged it without my husband or I getting wet and the pictures were so beautiful. All I can say i...

    Thanks so much Noverlee for your awesome review. Wedding planning can be difficult thing. I am glad that I could be of help to you and Ben in your wedding planning process. I feel that a successful wedding day and photos comes from a well laid out wedding timeline and good planning. It is something I like doing and help every couple as part of my services. Everything came together so well for your Christmas Theme Wedding at the Woodwinds. The portraits on the staircase came out really nice with all the Christmas trees and decorations. You and girls looked so great in their red dresses and you in your white dress and red shawl. Ben and the guys looked really sharp. It was great to meet you family that flew in so far for your wedding day. Loved your wedding toasts, and Ben and his best man playing guitars and singing was a great touch. So glad we could do the night photography shots too. They came out great with the Christmas Lights in the background. It was such a fantastic wedding day and I was so glad to be your photographer and capture the beautiful moments of your wedding day.

  • John deserves every single one of these five stars and then some! He was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process from beginning to end. I actually came upon John in a wedding group. I was drawn to him because of his kind heart. Someone in the group got messed over by their photographer and would not have any pictures from their wedding day. John offered to do a photo shoot for the bride and groom free of charge to makeup for what their photographer did to them. John was phenomenal with communication the whole time and really impressed me. He really cared about making sure he understood everything I wanted and then exceeded those expectations. I have the most beautiful wedding pictures I could have ever hoped for. You can tell this isn’t just a job for John. He really puts his heart and soul into his craft. Not to mention how quick his turn around time was. My biggest fear while planning my wedding was the photography after hearing so many horror stories. If you go with John ... Read more

    Dear Cassandra, Thank you so much for your heartfelt and detailed review. I tell couples often that all photographers are not alike. There can be a big difference between photographers . I have heard many bad stories over the years and when I started my wedding photography studio I wanted to do things different and offer personalized care and attention to all the couples I work with. For me being a wedding photographer it is more then a job. It is a joy and a service, a way I can give to all the clients I work with. Shooting weddings is my happy spot and I enjoy telling the story of a couple's wedding day, as unique as each wedding is, with beautifully artistically created photos. I am so glad that I could work with you and Kevin and capture the beautiful moments of your wedding day.

  • My wife and I were married at the Saybrook Point Inn in CT in October and had the pleasure of working with John Munno as our photographer. John is a real professional with an eye towards getting the perfect shots and made the process easy from initial consultation to the day of. We looked through a lot of potential photographers for someone who’s photo-journalistic style matched what we were looking for and after reviewing his website and looking at his work we reached out to John for more information. It’s always a little tricky when you’re planning a wedding in another state and using local vendors, but even without meeting in person we felt immediately comfortable with John through our phone/skype calls. In the lead up to the wedding John kept in touch and helped us put together a rough shoot list of what we wanted to get during the ceremony, photo shoot and reception. His experience was clutch! We had only a vague idea of what we wanted, with a few ideas pulled from weddi... Read more

    Dear Thompson and Christina, Thank you so much for your amazing review!! Wow! I appreciate you taking the time to leave such a detailed account of your experience. From our initial consultations on skype and the phone, where I heard of your wedding plans at the Saybrook Inn, I was excited about your wedding plans and the opportunity to work with you. I am glad out meetings helped to pull everything together for an amazing wedding day. Saybrook Point Inn was such an amazing spot for your wedding day. It was fun doing the getting ready shots of the guys playing pool and poker in the gentlemen's room. Not typical of getting ready shots but it set the stage and fit the theme and style for your wedding. Christina's getting ready shots came out great with looking so beautiful in her dress and all her bridesmaids helping her. The ceremony at the Marina was so timeless with the early autumn air and bridal party back-dropped against the boats and marina. I am glad I could get some great shots of both the ceremony and portraits on the marina docks! Your reception with your choreographed dancing, toasts and music was fun and celebration from start to finish. It has really been such a pleasure to work with you both, get to know you and capture the beautiful moments of your wedding day. So grateful to be a part of your lives and new beginnings.

  • John is an absolutely amazing wedding photographer--the pictures of our day, from beginning to end, are so beautiful. From checking in with us regularly before the wedding, to taking scenery shots of our farm before the wedding even started, to his super flexibility when we were running behind schedule, John went above and beyond throughout the whole process. He is so professional, kind, personable and fun, and his work is beautiful!

    Thank you Hope for your awesome review. When I heard of you wedding plans at your new family to be farm, I knew your wedding was going to be special. And then when I showed up to the farm, it was beyond what I had expected. Your touches of beauty and love on every table, with every decoration was amazing. And you, the most amazing bride!! Your many emotions through the day show your strength, and character. This was all echoed in the toasts of your wedding reception and ceremony vows. Your getting ready shots at Shady Lawn Farm in the old farm house with classic wall paper and antique furniture was the most amazing backdrop for your wedding day. It was great to get photos of you going out to the garden to pick flowers for your bouquets which you and your bridesmaids put together right there in the kitchen. Your portraits of you and the girls in the fields behind your house were from a scene of an epic movie. Your ceremony, in front of the huge barn at Thorncrest Farm with the cows mooing in the background echoed sounds of days gone bye. Then there were the photos in the hay loft and farm grounds and your wedding reception under the huge tent... I could go on and on. So glad to be your photographer and capture one magic moment after another on your amazing wedding day. Thank you so much.
