JOHN LEGG: Photographer, history buff, and overall nice guy.
Anyone can take pictures.
People hire me for my vision. My way of seeing the world.
There are many decisions involved when planning a wedding. In fact, you’re probably finding that out now as you are choosing the dress, tux, decorations, music, food, etc. While all these are important, they pale in comparison to the photography. If you think about it, the photographs are the only visual representation of your wedding that will endure long after the cake has been eaten and the flowers have wilted. Even years from now, they will always be there to serve as a permanent reminder of just how amazing your wedding was. So, it’s worth taking the time and making the investment on a photographer who will handle your wedding with the care and consideration that you would yourself.
It’s always been my belief that you shouldn’t work with limited coverage or plan your wedding around the photographer’s schedule. The day is stressful enough, why would you want to race the clock to squeeze in all of your important moments? I want your day to flow naturally and this is why, when you hire me to shoot your wedding, you get me all day. If you get ready at 8:00 in the morning and party until midnight, count me in. Truthfully, most of my days are 14-16 hours of continuous shooting… it’s something I’m used to and I’ll never change.
I also believe in giving you high-resolution files of the images taken throughout the day. The way I see it, they’re your memories and you have a right to them. You can email them to family and friends, make prints, or even build your own album. Of course, I offer all these services as well, but I don’t want you to feel limited in any way. All of the final images are delivered in both color and b&w so your options really are unlimited.
On your wedding day, you’re not going to find me sitting around or awkwardly shooting from the corner of the room. I stay close to the action when special moments are taking place and work behind the scenes to keep your day running smoothly. I want to make your day special and capture all the moments the way they really happen because, for me, nothing is more important than providing you with some outstanding wedding images and a comprehensive experience that’s second to none. By the end, I won’t just consider you clients, I’ll see you as friends. Together, we’ll experience all the joyous, tearful, and hilarious moments that make weddings great. So, if you put as much value into the photos as I do and think we would be great to work together, then I would really love to hear from you. Please get in touch.
Style & Quality
My style derives from growing up shooting film; Whether from a professional camera, or disposable, I've always loved the grainy look it gives to each image. I believe doing things differently is what helps people succeed in any type of art form. I am open to other editing styles that you may require for your shoot, just send me a message so we can discuss options.
Throughout my career as a photographer, I have traveled around the United States covering Country musicians, or capturing special moments on a wedding day. I am open for travel around the United States.
History = Meaning of Life
Along with being a professional photographer, I am in school to someday become a professional historian. I currently attend Middle Georgia State University, with goals of a Bachelors of History degree. Once completed, I strive to attend Graduate school to complete my Masters and PhD.
History has always been a huge inspiration in my life. I've been to almost every American Civil War battlefield on the East Coast of the United States, and hope to visit them all someday. In my studies I am currently working on a research project along side http://www.allmichigancivilwar.com. They have contracted me to obtain images of all Michigan soldiers that went through Andersonville Prison Camp in Georgia. I plan on broadening this research and using it for future projects in school. If you keep up with me long term, I promise to share all the cool facts I uncover.
