"Jud is fantastic!!! Before our wedding he was open to questions, directions, requests for particular photos and during the wedding he did everything we expected and more. Whenever I thought about wanting a photo of a moment, I would turn around and there he was. We would recommend Jud to anyone. He's a master at his craft!"
Patti and Shaun, Signature Theater, Arlington, Virginia
"Jud was a great wedding photographer! From the very beginning when we first met him, we felt very comfortable with him. His attitude at the wedding was very professional, yet he made everyone he was photographing feel very relaxed. He was also unobtrusive, yet took great pictures of all the important moments! After the wedding, it turned out I had somehow miscalculated and overpaid him, and he contacted me right away and let me know so I could write a new check with the appropriate amount-- even though he could have kept the old check, and I never would have realized I'd overpaid! Most importantly, the photos he took are beautiful, and we have a great selection to choose from for our prints and albums."
CJ and David, Catlett, Virginia
"Jud was an amazing photographer. We booked him at the last minute and he performed as though he'd met with us a dozen times. He was extremely flexible with the requirements of the church and our amateur photographer family members getting in the way. We got over 1000 lovely pictures within 2 weeks of our event. Lastly, Jud is just a cool person to have at your wedding. As my husband and I are amateur photographers ourselves we had a real sense of what we wanted from our photographer and Jud was the best choice for us."
Marissa and Craig, Longview Gallery, Washington D.C.
"Jud was the perfect wedding photographer for our needs- we planned our wedding in 2 months due to an upcoming deployment, and he was very flexible as we were figuring out the details of our day. We didn't have time to meet before the wedding so we basically just told him what we had in mind and he ran with it. During the actual wedding, he had this knack for being right there when we needed him (we wanted lots of candid, photojournalist-style shots and some formal shots). We wanted that sense from the photos of our excitement, the party atmosphee, and his photos make you feel like you are right there in the event. We are putting together our albums now and having a difficult time choosing between all the photos! We wanted festive, glamorous party caught on film and Jud captured it perfectly. We are thrilled with the results and can't recommend him highly enough!"

"Jud was a great photographer for our wedding. He was unobtrusive while still seeming to get great pictures of all the important big and little moments. He is a complete professional and I never had to worry about what he was shooting or where he was. He also has a great demeanor and wonderful patience for those inevitable staged group/family photos. Even my mother-in-law was impressed with him, which is saying a lot!!! Also and just as importantly the photos were fantastic. He got all the details and really captured the wedding in an artistic and timeless way. I would absolutely recommend Jud!"
Audrey and Ben, Fort C.F. Smith Arlington, Virginia
"I cannot say enough great things about Jud. He was a wonderful photographer and fit right in. Jud took thousands of photographs, was in the middle of everything, and I never noticed him (except for the portraits)! After the wedding he organized the pictures into groups and placed them on the internet for all to see within days. He was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer (and as a photographer, I am extremely picky) and I would recommend him to everyone."
Lisa and Tim, Torpedo Art Factory, Alexandria, Virginia
"Jud did an excellent job covering our wedding. We always had the sense that he was around, but we were never posed or pushed into a photo. He was very easy going and professional, and when we got our pictures we were absolutely delighted! All our special moments were captured with several shots to choose from, as were some moments we didn't even know had happened till we saw the pictures. Everyone who looked at our pictures had the same "these are awesome" reaction and we'd like to thank Jud for capturing our special day."
Kate and Norm, Arlington, Virginia
"I cannot say enough great things about Jud. When I met Jud I knew he was the right guy for the job. He's very easy to work with and will do whatever you want. In addition, my family liked Jud alot. He's got a great personality that makes everyone feel comfortable. As important as getting good photos, I found it was really important to surround myself with low-stress people throughout the wedding planning process. Jud was one of those people. Once the contract was signed, I never worried about whether he would show up on time, or bagging out at the last minute or having camera malfunctions . . . these are the nightmares that can make a bride lose her mind. And as an extra-added touch that I felt demonstrated his professionalism, Jud posted my photos of the wedding before he cashed the check I gave him for the second half of the contract price. In my mind, it wasn't necessary, but I think it speaks volumes in terms of who you are dealing with. Jud is a person who truly cares about his work and isn't out to take advantage of you."
Arielle and David, Alwyngton Manor, Warrenton, Virginia
"Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work, we've been going through the pictures these past couple of days and they are outstanding!!! You really did a terrific job and we are so happy!! We also really appreciate that you stayed a bit longer than we had agreed. Thanks again for everything, we will definitely be recommending you!!!"
Angelica and Arlir, The Inn at Willow Grove, Orange, Virginia
"I am so happy we chose Jud to be our photographer. I was a nervous wreck that day, especially before the ceremony. Jud was really calm and friendly with my whole family. Everyone really liked him. He helped me feel at ease with everything. He did a great job, the pictures turned out beautiful! He is a very patient photographer and my husband was really happy too. :) Also, I loved the fact that while my hubby and I were refreshing after family pictures, Jud took pictures of the guests transitioning from the ceremony to the reception area. I was not expecting that, I dont know how he did it, haha he is really fast! Also the photo booth was hilarious!!! Yes, I would 100 percent recommend him."
Chris and Emily, Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.
"Jud was the perfect photographer for my engagement. I was doing a surprise engagement at the Lincoln Memorial and cannot say enough about how helpful he was setting up, flexible with the changing times, etc due to it being a surprise, and how great the pictures came out! Both of our families now have an amazing look into the proposal so they feel as if they were there. I would recommend anyone to Jud for his great photos and the fact that he is the least intrusive photographer I have ever met. We will be using him for our wedding as well because we were impressed with his skill and professionalism."
Rachel and Alberto, St. James Catholic Church, Vienna, Virginia

Jud delivered - he is an excellent photographer. Jud provides hundreds of images from a variety of perspectives, so there are plenty to choose from. He is also professional and great to work with. He responds promptly to emails and calls, is always on time, and is ready to capture the best images. Hire Jud if you want genuine, real, and absolutely amazing photographs of your life events."
