I wish I could give them 10 stars. I would give them all the stars if I could, they were completely amazing, and months after our wedding I still get comments on how incredible our wedding photos are. Their creativity is phenomenal, although I do worry about Jos's longevity, as he has a habit of putting himself in precarious positions to get a perfect shot, like climbing a 30 foot tree for a shot of us in a hammock (which turned out so lovely). I actually work at a wedding venue, and I realize something very striking about the difference in their process - many of the newlyweds I see on a day to day basis are mostly just trying to get done with their photos - there is an emotional disconnect, and while the photos can still be lovely, they aren't engaged in the process and see it as something to get through, not something that can make the day even more full. It is completely different with Jos and Tree. We actually typically hate having our picture taken, but the photography was so interlinked to our overall experience that our entire group was friends with Jos and Tree by the end of the weekend. I didn't expect this, but am so glad that it all came together this way. They have this incredible gift of making people feel so at home with them that you can just be yourselves, with the occasional encouraging direction from them. They are not only talented, but so very warm and welcoming and unique. This made us feel so much more relaxed and actually allowed us to not even think about it as we were getting our photos taken - we just enjoyed every single moment, and have the incredible experience of being able to look back at these memories with every image. I even loved looking at myself ugly cry, because I remember being in the moment and knowing what it was that made me cry like that.
They will go over every detail with you leading up to your event, so that they will be equipped to capture every moment. They prioritize capturing candid moments and reveling in the experience over adhering to a contracted time frame (as in, they won't be rushing out the door the second the clock strikes the end of the night - I have seen photographers that literally book it the second their contracted time ends). I'm not even sure if they had a certain timeframe in their contract? They basically took photos all weekend long (it was a destination wedding) and were a part of the family by the end. In terms of our timeframe, let me assure you that they were crucial in keeping us on our personal timeline before the ceremony. The process of getting ready was such a blur to me, despite being very organized and a little neurotic about it beforehand. I was just completely overwhelmed, but they were making sure that everything was flowing appropriately and they were capturing the shots they wanted while keeping us on time for the actual event.
I honestly can't recommend them enough. We are beyond thrilled each and every time we look at our photos and feel lucky to call them friends, and truly think they bring something great into this world by capturing moments and celebrations in their uniquely enthralling way.
Jos and Tree are exceptional photographers, creative planners, thoughtful counselors, and above all truly wonderful people.
The day was very much emotional for us. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for putting in so much effort and time that day. You guys were EVERYWHERE.
OMG so good. We're on our 14th viewing of the premiere slideshow and cannot get enough! You guys did such a FU@#!!@@!!ING GREAT JOB! Laughing and crying. - Josh and Lisa
I don't know anyone more enamored with their job than you. Every picture is a gift.
There was never a question about what beautiful artistry you were capable of, but getting to see our magical day captured with such perfection is a gift I will treasure always. Not a single person who has seen your shots has not commented on how they are the best wedding shots they have ever seen, and I couldn’t agree more. You were so wonderful to work with, both Daniel and I loved seeing your passion for your art and your work. We were honored to have you be a part of that day, and are full of gratitude for the continuing gift of these images. You are lovely and captured the magic of those moments so beautifully!!!!
We have watched our wedding slideshow three times this weekend with Ben’s Family, and Ben and I cried each time. The pictures are exceptionally beautiful and capture the emotions so well! We can’t thank you enough for all the work and talent you put into our wedding.
"Jos Studios is awesome. Jos is an artist – a visionary and stubbornly meticulous. The pictures so beautifully capture the events of the day."
You guys are amazing!!! I honestly love every picture and relive the moments every time I look at the beautiful shots you guys took of the best day ever for us!!
Completely the best interactive photographers in the business! Artistic and Professional. Worth every expense! Thank you for your talents and making our memory amazing!
We are beaming with gratitude that we got to have you for such an incredible experience. We LOVE the photos! All of us sat around looking at your photos at our big Thanksgiving gathering. We smiled at each dramatic and fantastic image. We are over the moon and have so much love for you guys! Thank you!!!!
THESE. ARE. AMAZING!!!!!!!!! This was SO much fun to watch, our guests didn't take many pictures so it's the first time we've really relived it like this and it is SUPER EXTRA PERFECT AND AWESOME!! You guys are so talented, we could not be happier with what we've seen. Seriously jaw droppingly well captured, perfect, emotional, hilarious shots. BRAVI!!!! I could go on and on...
Thank you for being part of making our wedding day as special as it was. We simply can't imagine it without you now, it felt like we had found lovely new friends who just happened to be taking amazingly artistic photos. It felt so natural that you were there. Thank you for making us so comfortable, for all that you did on top of everything: helping with chairs, organizing, putting nice music on to create a lovely mood, offering advice and everything in between! You made us feel so blessed on the day and as we look back on it and in general we both feel blessed most of all to have made such great friends, and to have shared one of the most significant days of our lives with you felt so natural.
Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into our wedding photos. We are so grateful and happy with the way they turned out. Gorgeous and unique! It was such a pleasure to have you in Italy with us, we know everyone really enjoyed meeting the two of you! You guys make a great team!
The most amazing photographers we could have asked for. They went above and beyond to capture unique and candid shots that blew us away on our wedding day and during our engagement/lifestyle shoot. They also did an underwater Trash The Dress shoot for us that was so much fun. I can't say enough about how impressed we were with their work ethic and how much fun it was to work with them. We feel like we made lifelong friends with Jos and Tree! If you go with anyone else for your wedding, you're making a huge mistake and missing out big time!
What can I say except Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Everything about this weekend was perfect and I am so touched you and joe were able to work together to plan for these images we will cherish forever.
Thank you for sharing your talent and expertise with us and for making this time in our lives unforgettable.
It's really interesting; whenever Jillian and I tell friends and family about our Portland adventures, we can't help belabour how special the photography was for both of us. It's become part of the engagement narrative now and one of the fondest memories I have of the entire experience.
Jillian & Joe
You really added so much to our day in a way we never could never have imagined!
We are blown away by the quantity and quality of the photos! We've viewed them 3-4 times and keep finding new ones we love. Thank you so much for you dedication, we are so grateful.
We are so grateful for everything you have done. Every photo we have seen just looks AMAZING and everyone we have shown them to absolutely love them and ask about you both. We really hope to be able to take you out to dinner soon to show our appreciation and also because we think you are awesome people :)
Fabulous! Our photos are gorgeous!
These are absolutely exquisite. Just stunning light and hues. You captured the color, humor, and love so well. THANK YOU for being such a tremendous and present part of our most special weekend. You were laying on the train tracks setting up that final shot. We feel so lucky you guys were available to work with us.You really captured us as humans, not just people participating in a wedding. That is an amazing talent.
Thank you so much for capturing our wedding so beautifully. The photos are absolutely stunning and we are so grateful to have had you there. It made the whole day such an awesome experience. Please come visit us in Australia some time!
I want to extend a sincere thank you not only for being amazing photographers (I already knew the photos you delivered would be other worldly!) but for being such thoughtful people. These moments are the best I've felt in my entire life. I'm getting tears in my eyes right now! You two are much more than just amazing artists. These photos will be passed on for generations.
JOS' team is nothing short of amazing. They have a great approach to the process, and made us feel like a million bucks while shooting (for someone who hates to have her photo taken, this was key.) We trusted in their vision for the various shots; they kept things going smoothly and got us through the post-ceremony family photos quickly. There were so many stunning shots from the day that four months later, I still can't decide which is my favorite. I can't say enough that this was some of the best money we spent on the wedding. Both my family as well as my husband's family were absolutely ecstatic over the photos. To me, this is one of the most, if not the most, important decisions to make in the wedding planning process, and I don't have even a shadow of regret that we went with JOS' team. They are amazing!
JOS' team provided my wife and I with the best possible experience AND results. I have spent my career working in the design/fashion industry for one of the most well know and well respected brands in the world. I have art directed photo shoots with top photographers on Islands in the Caribbean to the streets of Rome, so when it came to choosing a photographer for our wedding... I demanded the best. First of all, JOS' portfolio was stunning! With a wedding photographer you need someone who is technically cable to capture a variety of shots. Equally important is someone who can have the vision to thread together a holistic "visual" story of your wedding. The most crucial quality I was looking for is the intangible ability to authentically draw out human emotion within the work.
Choosing JOS studios to document our wedding day was the best wedding-related decision we made. Jay (my now husband) and I both tend to be very critical when it comes to artistic and visually-related projects, and so choosing our photographer was a very serious decision. Like all of the other reviewers here suggest, Jos and Tree's work is not only flawless and impeccable, but also brilliant, beautiful, and engaging. They have an extremely unique talent for capturing and communicating all of the "right" moments--and the result is a collection of wedding photos that are compelling in so many ways, not to mention unique. Our family and friends who have seen the photos so far have all said the same thing: "These are the best wedding photos I've ever seen," and "I've never seen anything like this." We wanted photos that were real, but we also wanted photos that were a cut above even the best photos--and that's what we got. There's also something to be said about feeling 100% confident that your photographer is going to rock it--that's how we felt with Jos and Tree from the very beginning. And they're also super cool people who are insightful and interesting (and they have a great look, too!). We love them.
An absolutely breath taking experience. We love all of our photos and loved working with JOS' team!
