Perfect Photographer!

We met John at Sopwell House Wedding show this year, he was energetic, thoughtful and put us at ease. We had reviewed a few others at the show, however we decided he was the perfect fit for us.
Choosing a photopgrapher in your mind is no easy decision, you're thinking about quality, price, how will they shoot your wedding, how will they integrate with your guests, and when you are planning a large wedding how will you manage all the group photos etc.
Well, John absloutley had this nailed, we hardly knew he was around, he had this knack of managing all the guests getting them into postion and then setting the next scene, we just allowed him to get on with his job so ultimately we could enjoy and absorb our wedding day. so huge thanks again to John for making our day so special at Sopwell House.

Part of the family

We can’t thank John enough for his love and care on our wedding day! From start to finish John has been nothing but amazing and his passion for photography is completely evident in his work. The pictures attached are from our sneaky peek, and we can not wait to see the rest!

Truly a living legend, book him in!

He was fun, caring and professional!

Simply the best… We can’t thank you enough John.xxxxxx

The greatest photographer you will ever meet 🌟

I want to start by saying that we are so thankful to have met John at the beginning of our supplier search - honestly can say, it was LOVE at first sight! We met at a wedding fair two years before our big day, but knew that we wanted him to be our photographer from the moment we spoke. His work was by far the best at the fair and exactly what we were after, albeit we were not sure what we wanted when we arrived! He is so friendly, funny and made us feel totally comfortable right from the get go. Throughout the two year wait, he would reply to my random email and questions and stayed in touch.

Fast forward to the race to the big day. We met a couple of weeks before the day to go through our plans for shots etc, and he went through everything, making us feel relaxed and ready. John suggested different shots and locations to go to at the venue to get the best shots - and we are so glad we took everything he said on board.

On the day, it was great to have John there. He made us calm, comfortable and we actually enjoyed having our photos taken, even though we are not usually in front of a camera! John just became part of the day, and both us andour guests loved having him there. He spent the entire day ensuring we had the most beautiful pictures, but still let us enjoy every single moment of the day.

My husband and I can honestly say, we are going to miss not seeing this man but hope our paths cross once again in the future.

If you want the most beautiful, fairytale photographs, the photograph you dream about - then definitely, definitely, definitely check in with John. If I could rate him infinite stars, I would.

Forever grateful.

Fabulous, adaptable and friendly

We asked John to photograph our December 23rd winter wedding. He was honest from the start and reassured us that although the weather was likely to be wet and the day drab he would ensure we got the photos we wanted.
We were not disappointed.
He was unobtrusive in the church and managed, somehow, to capture all moments. John was also professional, and demanding, enough to get order in the chaos of our fabulous Christmas style wedding day paryt. He fitted in and delivered some fantastic photo memories of the day.
Thank you, John.

Fantastic photographer - would recommend

We chose John to be our wedding photographer after meeting him at a wedding fair, we immediately felt at ease with him and knew he would be fantastic dealing with guests on the day. Looking through his portfolio gave us an idea of what we might expect and he had some gorgeous images so we decided to go for it. We weren’t disappointed. John met us at our venue before the wedding to discuss what we wanted, any family politics, images we particularly wanted, he listened to what we wanted and was enthusiastic about all our requests, putting forward suggestions where needed. On the day John managed everything just as he said he would and we couldn’t have been happier, we never felt dragged away from our guests and we got all the images we wanted and more. The night shots were particularly amazing and we have a fantastic sparkler shot – despite lighter malfunctions for the bride and groom putting this one at risk! After the big day John provided us with some images almost straight away which was amazing, and then kept us in the loop on his work on our other images. He even managed to get our photos finished before Xmas which was a big bonus for us. Overall if you are considering booking John we don’t think you will be disappointed and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

The best wedding photographer!

We hired John as our photographer for our wedding at Essendon Country Club and we were so impressed with his work, we hired him for our daughters wedding next year!

We cannot recommend him highly enough.

His communication leading up to our wedding and on the big day itself was exceptional. We met several times beforehand and he took the time not only to get to know us,
but also discuss what photographs we wanted and even offer ideas that we hadn't considered ourselves.

On the big day itself, he worked with our videographer like they were old friends despite only meeting on the day itself.

He was a easy to work with and very professional. He made the entire wedding party feel so relaxed and comfortable.

We were absolutely blown away by the pictures he produced. They were literally breathtaking. The detail of the pictures was so great, you could see the individual hairs in my beard!

Absolutely worth every penny and I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

Thank you John for recording our day so wonderfully, we look forward to seeing you again for our daughters wedding next November.

Brilliant photographer - highly recommend

John was such a great part of our wedding day - we were so happy with the service and photos he provided. In the run-up he was so communicative, kind, helpful and flexible, and it was such a pleasure to meet him in person. He got our vibe, and was able to suggest the best poses, locations, structure and order to suit us and our wedding. He was so fun and friendly on the day - it was genuinely lovely to have him around. Everything felt very relaxed and comfortable. Thank you John - we so appreciated your thoughtfulness, energy and skill.

More than a photographer ❤️

You cannot go wrong when booking John. Not only does he capture the most amazing pictures but you really do love him and accept him as family on the day. His fun, creative and magnificent ideas for shots will make you laugh, and cry tears of pure happiness as me and me wife did. We cannot thank him enough for making our special day all the more perfect.

His commitment to your day is heart warming and his flexibility and sweet, banterful nature helps the fear of planning a photographer an absolute breeze.

From the bottom of my heart, if you hire John as your photographer. You are in very safe hands and prepare for some breath taking & spectacular shots.

Love Connor & Amy Graham

Thank you so much John for everything on the day, you were great!

Brilliant photographer!

John was an absolutely fantastic wedding photographer and we couldn't recommend him more. John knew the venue inside and out so was able to pinpoint all the best locations and shots, which gave us an amazing variety of pictures. Not only that he is really easy to get on and have a laugh with, which made us and the guests really relaxed. The photos were brilliant with a swift turnaround time, and as well as taking beautiful shots of the main wedding party, he got some fantastic candid shots of guests which we absolutely love. Thanks so much John!

Fantastic potographer

We had initially planned a large wedding with all the trimmings when the pandemic struck. We decided to go ahead with our wedding on a much smaller scale (because of Covid restrictions) and thought we could probably manage without a photographer. And then someone recommended John Mason Photography. We are so pleased we hired John. He was absolutely brilliant. He made everyone feel at ease. He had fantastic ideas for the photos using different settings we wouldn't have thought of. He was very relaxed about everything and captured our day perfectly. We have amazing photographs ranging from the family and friends groups, to the hilarious fun shots. We couldn't have been happier with John on the day, and our photos are brilliant. We received a huge selection on memory stick including black & white shots. Perfect!
