JP is a fantastic photographer and would definitely reccomend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. His photos are just breathtaking. He knows how to get a great shot which meant that we werent away from our guests for long periods of time. Some of the best shots were when we didnt even know they were being taken. JP made us feel so comfortable, made us laugh and took the stress out of the ‘shoots’. We now have a beautiful album with a story of our day. Thank you JP x

Umar Ali recommends John paul ODonnell Photography 5 star

I have to apologise for not leaving a review sooner but I literally cannot recommend John Paul enough. He was recently a photographer, along with his videographer, at an absolutely amazing wedding this summer. I have not ever come across someone who can be both comfortable and completely professional at all times. On such an important day, John Paul was a centre of clarity and control during a hectic yet beautiful day. He managed to take a huge number of absolutely gorgeous photographs whilst managing to connect easily with the guests. I have seen the photos and am just waiting for the final products to be delivered, but I know that JP has done a phenomenal job. I could go on but ultimately I have to say that I will recommend this amazingly skilled artist to anyone who is looking to hire a professional yet friendly artist. Thank you so much for your amazing service.

High class services. The best photographer I have ever met. I have worked as part of the team at Fanhams Hall for nearly 3 years and I highly recommend his services.

Rebecca Aliberti-Burling  5 star

Having JP as our photographer was such an easy decision, as soon as we met him we just clicked with him. He was really able to make us ‘Work it’ on the day. We’ve only seen a couple of official pictures so far but we already know they will be amazing.

When people ask how we chose our wedding photographer, the answer is simple, we clicked with JP straight away. We met JP at a wedding fayre (Three Lakes nr Ware) and as soon as we saw his work and he started chatting to us we knew instantly that we wanted him to photograph our special day. Neither of us were very comfortable infront of the camera but JP was full of ideas and enthusiasm and on the day he kept everybody laughing and made us feel really good about ourselves. If you book JP you are in safe hands and we just want to say a huge thank you for our beautiful photographs. We are really looking forward to picking up our album x
