John was great to work with from day one. Very responsive over email and phone (I live out of state). And he was easy going on day of and was fun to work with. The photos are beautiful!

John is extremely responsive, organized and easy to work with. He went out of his way to accommodate my family to get specific pictures we requested.
John’s work is truly moving and we will cherish these memories forever. My whole family is grateful for his willingness to share his gift of photography with us! “Thank you” is inadequate.

John works magic with his camera! I have been working on a project with him for the last 6 months and I can honestly say he is the best photographer I have ever seen. Plus he's an awesome guy too!!

I could not be happier with the services and products John gave to us during the whole process for our wedding. My friends and family rave about how well he captured our special day and how beautiful the pictures and our photo album came out. He is a true professional with passion and perfection. I would recommend him to everyone for any occasion! More...

John was a pleasure to work with! We are in love with all of our photos and plan to use him again for more pictures! He was very professional, and patient. He was so funny, and serious when needed to be. Our entire families were "wowed" by his work. I recommend him to any and everyone!!! More...

We found John on Wedding Wire. He had excellent reviews so we decided to contact him to set up a consultation for our wedding photography. He showed us samples of his work and we were impressed. He also really provided a lot for the amount of money that he charges. We received his services all day on our wedding day, a cd with pictures from our wedding within two weeks after, a 5x7 parent album, five enlargement prints of our choice and wedding album of our own with the pictures printed right to the page! We have noticed through searching for a photographer that most only give you a copy of your photos on a cd and charge a lot of money for it. We wanted a photographer that actually printed the pictures for you/made an album. We are extremely happy with the end result. The pictures and the album are beautiful! More...

John was absolutely great. We had so many amazing photos (thank goodness you get all your photos, because I wouldn't have been able to only pick a few. The album was hard enough to select!) I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends or family. More...

John did an absolutely amazing job photographing our wedding. He was very helpful and attentive through all of the planning, he even took us to show us possible locations for pictures. Everyone comments on how beautiful the pictures and album turned out. We couldn't be happier! More...

Jon is amazing! He got some great unique shots. Everyone raves about our wedding photos. Not only is he talented but he makes sure the shot is just right. He's attention to detail is like no other. Very pleased!! More...

John provided the photography for my wife and I's wedding at the Buffalo Zoo. John came with great enthusiasm for the day but we barely noticed him being there. He is a photography ninja. We had some shots planned but he came up with some great ideas but the candid photos are the ones we treasure the most. I would recommend him to any and all folks looking for a great photographer and who are looking to get the most bag for their buck. His low key style really helped to take away the stress of the day as well. More...

We lived working with John, he was very professional, captured all our special moments ( and many more) and the pictures were absolutely stunning!!

Honestly we cannot say that there is a better photographer. Most importantly the photos are amazing but along with that came many other things. John was very professional and creative with 18 people in our wedding party. The only time we even sensed his presence was for posed shots. He came early and stayed late to include every shot we could want. We suggest asking for a few special shots and trust him to do his thing. You will not be disappointed. His eye and style are right on. The photos are nothing short of perfect and arrived in the mail the day we returned from our honeymoon, as he promised. If you are hiring a photographer, he is the best you will find so hire him before someone else does. More...

John worked with my Husband and I every step of the way. He met with us the day before and went over all the possible shooting locations. When it came to our big day we had no worries at all. He made it so easy to just be relaxed and enjoy our day. He was kind and prompt and the photos he took were so beautiful! We promptly received the USB drive in the mail with all of our photos. We also had a couple of prints included in our package, that were shipped out within 1 day of us choosing them and they arrived in ultra protective packaging. It was such a pleasure to work with such a great professional and talented photographer.

I had such a wonderful experience with John, and I am happy to recommend him to others. He beautifully captured our wedding day.
I had some ideas for photos but I needed a photographer that could bring my ideas to life- John was perfect. He is able to make quick decisions and turn any environment into a beautiful photograph. He not only has an eye for finding the best pictures, his personality is perfect for the job.
Photos come back so quickly! I can't say enough about John. He is the best. :0)

I planned my entire Niagara Falls wedding from almost three hours away, all by phone or online. When I talked to John for the first time he was so helpful, even helping me find a restaurant to go to after the wedding! The experience he provided was great, and the pictures turned out incredible. I definitely made the right choice by picking John as my wedding photographer. More...

John was great to work with. I have worked with photographers in the past and noticed how they can be very controling on what they want. John was nothing like that at all. He listens to what you are looking for and gives suggestions. John is professional, passionate, and is very easy to work with. He is someone you can trust to do quality photo's and if you ever have any questions or need something from him, he will get back to you within 24 hours. He made our wedding pictures an enjoyable moment for us and the albums look amazing he did. We would recommend John to anyone we know. More...

We worked with John as a photographer when I was in a friend's wedding. I remember John being very professional and great to work with. We booked with John because of our past experience with him, but also his great value and expertise! He was the most reasonable photographer with excellent work. The pictures he took were beautiful, and he was open to our suggestions as well. John was very prompt with our photos too...we received our CDs in the mail while we were still on our honeymoon! I just picked up my photo album today and it is outstanding! I am so glad we decided on the hard page book. Excellent photographer with excellent work and an excellent value. We would recommend John to anyone looking for a photographer! More...

John Lagomaggiore was a wonderful photographer. He was very accommodating to my husband and I while preparing for the wedding. He was on time, took wonderful pictures, interactive, creative, and helpful. After the wedding, he was quick with editing and sending photos. He helps me create a beautiful photo album. The prices for John's service was one of the best in the area. I would certainly use John again for another event. More...

John was great to work with! I got his name from a friend who had used him for her wedding. He was accommodating and helpful. He was open to ideas and yet provided helpful suggestions, as well. The pictures he took came out beautifully and we have received several compliments on the album and enlargements. It was a pleasure working with him. More...

My husband and I were very pleased with John’s attention to detail. He took several pictures before the during the ceremony which were absolutely beautiful. We especially enjoyed the pictures he took of our friends and family dancing and enjoying themselves during our reception. They are memories captured that we will always be able to enjoy. More...

When we began to look for a photographer for our wedding, we wanted someone who would capture special, candid moments between us and our guests.
John was referred to us by a friend, and when I went on his website, I knew I wanted him to take the pictures at our wedding...His photos have heart and soul.. all while capturing the beauty of the indoor and outdoor surroundings.
We met with John before and after our wedding and found him to be very down to earth and friendly, as well as extremely accommodating. He took so many wonderful pictures, we struggled with making our final selections for the album. John met with us and helped us select the best photos, and created an album, that was very beautiful and more than I ever hoped for!
Go on John's website..you'll see...

Better than we could have ever wished for!
John was the most amazing wedding photographer. We have been to several weddings, and been members of several wedding parties, and have never seen a photographer do such a wonderful job. John was very professional, and had several great ideas for poses and places to take photos. We were extremely happy with the finished product also. The posed photos as well as the candid shots were fantastic. In addition to the wedding day, John was great with communication and planning leading up to the wedding. We also received our photos extremely fast after the wedding! Once we picked the prints we wanted, we had our enlargements and our album within days of informing John of our choices. I would recommend John to family, friends, and anyone who is looking for a photographer who is truly an artist and a professional. The value was also amazing. For the service we got, from the planning, through the ceremony, to receiving the finished product (prints and album), we could have paid double and still felt like we got a good deal! A good photographer is key to a wedding, as the photos are what keep the memories alive for years after the actual wedding day. Thanks to John, we will always have beautiful photos to remember our beautiful wedding day. -Joe & Katie Pallaci More...

My husband and I are very satisfied with our wedding photos. Mr. John Lagomaggiore is very good at his work. I definitely recommend him for any wedding.

As a destination bride, I was extremely nervous about selecting the best photographer. Photography was #1 on my list of importance besides my dress. I found John Lagomaggiore through the internet in searching for a wedding photographer. I was impressed at his background in journalism photography and the beautiful photographs on his website. At first I was hesitant to choose him because I was not sure if he would be good at taking both portraits (which I love) and photojournalistic spontaneous shots. In emailing him and speaking to him on the phone he was prompt, extremely professional, and emailed me more photographs of weddings he had photographed. I also shopped around and looked at 5 other photographers in the area, and he by far had the best photographs in the Niagara Falls area and had a reasonable price. It seemed a little too good to be true, however, after emailing him back and forth for months I decided to booked him and emailed him on and off with questions before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, he was on time, very professional, easy to work with, captured all of the important moments during the ceremony, took us to some spectacular areas near the falls to take photos after the ceremony and took wonderful photos during the reception. Before he left at the end of the night he came to me to make sure that there was nothing else I wanted him to capture before he left. All of my photographs were gorgeous and I ended up purchasing an album, enlargements, and extra photographs from him. I would highly recommend him. He made the small church look amazing in the photos. He also provided me with the photographs, albums, and enlargements in a very timely manner so that I could have them to show everyone back home who could not attend the wedding. I could not have asked for anything more and am so glad that I selected him to be my photographer. Even if I had paid double I know that I would not have had better results. More...

Absolutely awesome photographer



29 November 2011

when i was looking for a wedding photographer online for an out of state wedding, i was very impressed with john lagomaggiore's photos. he had an extensive collection of photos that were very detailed and told great stories from his world travels. his wedding pictures are more relaxed and also more beautiful than the typical wedding photographer. our ceremony was on the maid of the mist, and he had already done one wedding on the boat under the falls. He was really excited to photograph a second maid of the mist wedding.

we originally did not want a professional photographer at all. our main concern is that we did not want the photographer to ruin the fun and spontaneity of the day. john was able to set a few points where we got all of the portraits that we wanted, but for the rest of the wedding, he blended well. the outcome was great. we loved the fact that he mailed us 2 disks with all of our photos within a week. (a lot of people wait a year before getting their photos).
