"I was at the photo session John did of my grandson at my daughter and son-in-law's home.  Wow, was I impressed.  Very relaxed and extensive session in which he took many many shots in many natural settings and activities.  I thought it would take awhile for him to edit so many shots, but we got the preview link within just a day or two.  The pics were great; so natural unlike posed studio shots.  Prices are very reasonable; you will not be disappointed!"

"I had wanted newborn pictures and once I'd looked at John's portfolio- I knew that I wanted to have him shoot our family. I just have to say what a lovely photo shoot we had with John back in December.  He came to our house {such a blessing with a new little one} and got to work right away taking pictures of our new family.  We were just in our living room and I have to say we got the most beautiful and simple shots.  Working with him was so easy and i have to say I hope we are able to use his services again.  Also, we got our chosen photographs back very quick!  We've even recommended him to friends and they've loved working with him as well."

"I also have only great things to say about our experience with John.
He scoped out our location to make sure our appointment was during the best light for the spot.  He was absolutely sweet and patient with my 14 month old daughter, trailing us both, and letting us do what came natural, while making some suggestions as he saw fit.  The photos came out beautiful and he was generous and quick in getting the photos back to us.  When I had a technical issue with my computer and the disk, he was right there, emailing and helping, even when he was out of town and then  dropping off a new disk to ensure everything worked, even though the problem was on my side.   John is super sweet, full of integrity and a joy to work with, putting everyone at ease.  His work is beautiful, as you can see, viewing his website."

"We were very happy with John for our family photo session. He is very easy to work with and incredibly responsive and flexible. We had to change our original session because of rain, and then he scoped out our potential locations ahead of time. Our session was quicker than we had originally anticipated, so he also let us choose additional images for our package. His turnaround time is excellent, not to mention we have a selection of really great family photos. I'm looking forward to working with him again."

"John Kokoska is a fantastic photographer!  He has a gentle, quiet demeanor that puts you right at ease during the photo shoot.  We used him for our baby's 1-year photos.  He came to our house, and we took shots around the house (indoors and outdoors) rather than posed in a studio.  We were very pleased with the photos and the overall experience, and we would highly recommend John Kokoska Photography."

"John is incredible ~ so good with kids, dogs, candid shots.  He photographed my wedding and also my business photos!  Wonderful guy, so calming and so easy to interact with.  John listens well, but he has his own style.  I highly recommend him for weddings, any gathering (particularly strong candid shots) and for the ever-challenging reality of photographing children and pets!"

"John is a fantastic photographer. I met him and his work partner for the first time a couple weeks ago at my place and I am very glad I did. His pictures are just great. I had never had professional pictures done before and was not sure what to expect but John made the session very easy. He made everyone at ease, even my one year old daughter was right away captivated by the camera. He was very patient and just rolled with it! The pictures are wonderful. I highly recommend John. Great experience."

"I worked with John as a photographer for my new clothing and jewelry line, Rosie's Blues.  He was wonderful and able to get great shots of all the pieces.  He helped think through the set up and the lay out of the staging and was very generous with his time.  Being patient and calm and good natured helps a lot too!"
