About

Hi, welcome.

I am John, a Kent based wedding photographer living near Rochester. Over the last 10 years or so I have attended many weddings and feel truly lucky and humbled when my couples entrust me to capture the beautiful memories of their big day. Weddings are such special occasions and I love to just go with the flow, capturing little moments as they happen. Some of the memories I capture you will know about, and some will happen and you wont see them until you receive your beautiful wedding photographs on your USB, or within your gorgeous wedding album. My style is very candid, very relaxed, and very calm. No forced posing. No taking you away from your guests for an hour for a mini photoshoot. Just beautiful photographs of your day as it unfolds. (Although we can nip off for a little break if you would like, and as we have a walk around your venue we can capture some lovely photos of you both just relaxing and grabbing 10 minutes to yourselves.)

Services Offered

I offer a few collections for you to choose from and my packages start from 拢1295 for all day coverage with an album included, but I often find that couples want a photography package that is as individual and unique as their day. If that is the case then just drop me a message, let me know your date and your venue if you already have that sorted, and we can chat from there and work out a package that is tailored to both of you. This doesn't have to be anything scary I promise. Nothing to be nervous about, just drop me a message and we can chat about your day.

All of my packages will include the following

Your photographer with many years of experience (I'm not all that old though so don't panic)

A pre wedding meeting - basically a chat over a coffee and a walk around your wedding venue with you both

All of your beautifully edited photographs hosted on a password protected gallery - usually around 500 photos+

All of your beautifully edited photographs delivered on a personalised crystal USB memory stick

All of your photographs are usually delivered to you within 4 weeks of your wedding date

All areas are covered. I primarily cover weddings in Kent, but have covered weddings in Surrey, Berkshire, Hertfordshire, Yorkshire, and further away such as Malta, and Florida. Have passport, will travel as the saying goes.

Optional Extras

Second photographer - drop me a message to find out why this can be such a great addition to your day

Stunningly beautiful lay flat wedding abums with a choice of cover materials and finishes

Parent albums - exact duplicates of your main album but in a smaller format

Extra USB memory sticks

Canvasses and wall art

Express photo editing so you receive your wedding photographs even sooner

Videography packages to run in tandem with your photography package

Ceremony live streaming

Engagement photoshoot

You can see more of my weddings on my website www.shotbyjfk.co.uk

If you like the sound of the above and want to know more just drop me a mesage or give me a call. I am always happy to have a chat to you, and would love to know more about your big day. Message me via Hitched, or via my website, or even through Whatsapp if that suits you better. If you can, let me know your wedding date, and your wedding venue, and we can arrange a proper chat from there.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Fantastic Service

My wedding shots are amazing.
John and Dawn were very accomodating considering my wedding was in London on the day of the Train strikes.

We were very comfortable with them and they were brilliant with our guests and nothing was too much of a bother and we were all made to feel like royalty.

We are so happy with the pictures and have so many to choose from and cannot wait to get them printed and have a beautiful reminder of the day and also have our wedding video to remember our vows.

The absolute best

The most amazing photographers. We genuinely could not of asked for better, from start to finish both were more like friends than photographers with Jon even being the one who gave me my pep talk to walk down the aisle! Amazingly talented, but also just as amazingly kind, funny and genuine people. Every single guest we spoke to has praised both of you as much as we have and the finished photos were more beautiful than we could鈥檝e imagined and they will 100% be our family photographers for any occasion. From booking, to prep before the day, on the day and even after, nothing has been too much trouble, with quick replies always, they have gone above and beyond throughout. These are the photographers you NEED for your big day. Thankyou so much to you both. Xx

Fantastic photographer

What an amazing, friendly guy. Right from the start communication with John was brilliant, he met us at the venue and went through everything we wanted and made sure we had it. He added lots of other photos that we wouldn鈥檛 even of thought of and it just made it so much more special. John and his colleague are so friendly and immediately put us at ease, making both my husband and I laugh and genuinely enjoy having our photos taken and that says a lot as we are both quite camera shy and couldn鈥檛 pose to save our lives. The photographs are absolutely stunning and we are so happy with them. I wouldn鈥檛 hesitate to use John again and very highly recommended him. Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful.

Highly recommend John

From the start John's communication and professionalism has been outstanding. On the day John and Dawn were fantastic and felt part of our special day. We are thrilled with the photos from our wedding and having them on a Usb stick will make it easy to share with family.

Shot by JFK were very professional and accommodating

Shot by JFK were very friendly, professional and understanding of our photographic requirements. They were very flexible in providing the pictures of our day that we wanted to keep as memories. They provided our album on an easy to use memory stick, which has allowed us to share them easily with our family and friends.

John and his team were fantastic

John shot our festival wedding at the Dreys Wedding Venue. We were a bit clueless about how it all works and John and his team were fantastic at guiding us through the process to ensure we got great photos and that the key aspects of our wedding were covered with a truly artistic approach. Our wedding was fairly wide spread due to the style of wedding, but John and his team made sure nothing was missed and we were very happy with the end result. He also produced us a stunning wedding album following the event. Thank you very much for everything!! Highly recommended!!
