Pros: Very nice, not intrusive,professional, best value for money
Cons: I have none
My sister had been looking at photographers and she selected her FAVOURITE websites and sent them to me. I contacted them all and Devon and Sophia were just the right fit for my wedding. They really listened to my ideas without criticizing, they travelled with my list of must have photographs and made sure that I got them all and more.

They were extremely professional, they listened to my aunt's concern about being appropriately attired and my concerns about photographers getting in the way of the guests and I never had a problem.

The pictures they took were phenomenal and the website was done so well. I really enjoyed working with them and I would recommend them to anyone. I can't wait to see the photo book and all the pics on the cd!

Pros: Professional, personable and artistic
Cons: None
Devon & Sophia Shaw of Jamaica Wedding Photos were amazing!  They went beyond just professional photography, they provided wonderful personal touches from the moment of our initial conversation with them thousands of miles away.  We had a good feeling and knew we had made the right choice.  They were always very prompt, professional, friendly, ready and willing to answer any and all of our questions and make our wedding photos memorable and what we wanted.  They had suggestions for us but always ultimately wanted us to be happy and were willing to make that happen.  When we met them in person the day of our wedding our initial feelings were confirmed.  They felt like family and truly felt like not only our photographers but a part of our wedding day.  We loved that they incorporated candid shots of us just being who we are and interacting with each other something we both appreciate having a love of photography.  They really have an eye for capturing moments.  Their work is truly extraordinary.  We also had them do the “trash the dress” session the day after the wedding.  This session was incredibly FUN!  We would highly recommend doing it.  You really get some matchless fun pictures.  We have gotten so many comments from friends and family how beautiful and unique the pictures are!  The package we chose included a website which is like a story book exclusive to you.  We LOVE this piece and I think we go on it daily to review it.  Before we came back from our honeymoon Devon & Sophia had already begun to load a few sections of the slideshows of the wedding photos.  All we can say is we cried when we saw them so amazingly beautiful!  The slideshows with the music came to life.  If you hire Devon & Sophia Shaw of Jamaica Wedding Photos, you have found true gems.  You will not be disappointed.  We cannot say enough about them.  They are a wonderful couple and we were blessed to have found them and built a relationship with them.  They captured the happiest day of our life and have given us moments in time we will treasure for a lifetime!  Thank you Devon & Sophia, you both are AMAZING!!! “Nuff Regards” Tim & Tammy Zinck
Pros: Awesome pictures, very professional service. Very creative approach.
Cons: None
Devon and Sophia are the perfect team. They did an amazing job at our wedding we are so thankful. We had a beach wedding in Ochi and they captured our special day better than we could have ever imagined. The slide shows on the website were sooooo cool and the photos in our photo album were such awesome quality. Everybody has had great reviews about your pictures. The website was set up within a few weeks and the cd and wedding album came very promptly afterwards. Very impressive service, very passionate about your work and it shows. I would recommend without any hesitation at all.   On behalf of Kevin and myself we would like to thank you both for the amazing memories you captured of our very special day.

Pros: Awesome pictures
Cons: None
I would recommend Devon and his team to anyone. You know you have a GREAT photographer when they are there but you don't even know that they are there. They are not in your face asking you to move this way or that or constantly pose.   They were on time, very professional, open to our suggestions and creative. We got really great shots of ourselves or friends and family, even things that I did not remember with being so busy in the wedding. I was really very happy with their work. They provided us with the pictures on the website in record time so that we could share with our friends and family and I was really happy with the coffee table book as well. I gave it to my mom as a Thank you gift and she almost had tears in her eyes when she went through the pictures.   If you want a professional photographer that is creative and will provide you with your pictures on time, look no further Jamaica Wedding Photos and their team are the ones. I would use them again and recommend them to any of my family and friends, not just for wedding but any special occassion as well.   Thank you for making me, my husband, the wedding and my guests look soooo good. I am so glad that you got those candid shots of everyone having fun, even some of the things I missed, but becaose you took those pictures I got a chance to relive those moments.

Pros: Work with your vision of the wedding
Cons: I wish I had use them for my engagement pictures..
They provided first class service all the way! They listen to my vision of the wedding and then they made it come to life on print! The day of the wedding they were on time, dependable, courteous and creative. The day of the wedding I felt like they were apart of the whole wedding experience. They kept us laughing, calm and feeling beautiful.  I was so excited to see the end result and they surpass my already high expectations. :o) Overall: Great to work with and excellent work! I recommend them with no reservations.

Jamaica Wedding Photos was definitely a great choice! We don't regret a dime spent on the photos they gave us! They were on time and so easy to work with. no rush or hassle. absolutely stress free. Amazingly helpful with tips for a nervous bride and groom! They captured all the right moments. Our pictures were absolutely wonderful and those were the opinions of family and friends as well. The kind of shots they captured were unbelievable because we didn't even notice their presence throughout the wedding Our website is beautiful, and it brings all the memories back everytime we look at it! We're more than satisfied with choosing JWP and we recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer/videographer!

Pros: professional, outgoing, talented, amazing
My wedding in Jamaica was captured with artistic photographs by Devon of Jamaica Wedding Photos! He was very professional and I was extremely impressed with his photographs. I was also impressed that Devon made a trip to our wedding destination in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica a few days before the wedding so that he was familiar with the location and how long it would take to get there. Devon was on time and easy to communicate with. He made my day stress free! I highly recommend his photography services. 
Pros: on time, professional, pleasant, creative
To me the best photographers make your event look even better than you even remember. They take shots of things that surprise and please you after the big event. They are on time, a pleasure to work with and they come up with creative suggestions of poses and pictures that you can take that make your day special and unique in its own way.   We believe you will find that with Jamaica Wedding Photos.   We had a really great experience working with them. Both Mr. and Mrs. Shaw were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were willing to work with us, they gave great suggestions. They came out and looked at the wedding site prior to our meeting and had a pre-plan of where we could take pictures and make the best use of the space. That was awesome.   Their level of professionalism was outstanding.  They were on time to take pre-wedding shots, they were open to all my suggestions and needs, and they took pictures without me knowing they were around or being in the way. The outcome was shown in the great results, I not only got great pictures but the website was awesome as well. I have worked with other photographer but Jamaica Wedding Photos were by far my favorite. They exceed our expectations; my husband and I were very satisfied with their service. We plan on using them for future events and recommending them to all of our family and friends.   We highly recommend Jamaica Wedding Photos.   The Thompsons

Pros: professional, flawless photos
We obtained Devon's services and Jamaica Wedding Photos for our special day at the Riu Ocho Rios and let me tell you the photos were everything we dreamed of and more!  He captured so many wonderful moments of both me and my now husband as well as my guests.  He was punctual, professional and a pleasure to have around.  It's often hard to secure services from far away (we're from Canada) but he called us and got a feel of exactly what we were expecting well before the big day, making the day of very seamless.  The mark of a wonderful photographer is not knowing that he's there, the quality of the shots will make us treasure them forever!  Excellent Job Jamaica Wedding Photos, thanks for exceeding our expectations :)---Julie and Graeme

Pros: professional, proactive, prompt, reasonable prices
Cons: none
p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } I highly recommend using Devon and Sophia from Jamaica Wedding Photos for wedding photography services in Jamaica. Devon and Sophia have been nothing but professional, proactive, and easy to work with.   After the dress, the photographer was my most important priority for the wedding. After all, they are what you will always have for memories. I contacted over 10 photographers in Jamaica before deciding to go with Jamaica Wedding Photos. I was able to narrow down the list to two photographers based on price, quality, and promptness of their replies. After much consideration (and watching EVERY slideshow on their website), I decided to go with Devon and Sophia. Their total package (1300 for 3 hours of photography, website, CD of pictures, slideshow AND picturebook) could not be beat!   On the day of the wedding, Devon and his assistant Roger showed up about an hour before the scheduled time and started taking pictures right away for no additional cost. They were very professional and polite. I had sent them a list of requests before hand (must-take shots, my preferences for pictures/editing, etc) which they brought to ensure that I got everything I asked for. They were very unobstrusive while taking the photos. For the most part, I completely forgot that they were there, even when they were doing the after ceremony bride/groom photos!   All of the editing/slideshows were done about two weeks after we returned from the honeymoon. While viewing the slideshows, I was amazed at the quality of my photos. I got married at Catcha Falling Star in Negril. Catcha's located on the west end of Negril which is famous for their sunsets. I really wanted to capture those gorgeous sunsets and asked for a lot of pictures with the sunset in the background. Pictures with a light source behind you are VERY difficult to shoot. Devon more than delivered on my wish list! We got five slideshows full of pictures (WAY more than we expected), and there wasn't a bad picture in the bunch! He took pictures that I would never have thought would work and made us look beautiful!   We're still waiting on the photobook and CD, but I have no doubt that it will look superb! If you're getting married in Jamaica, I can't imagine a better photographer than Devon!    Thanks Devon and Sophia for giving us memories that we will treasure for a lifetime!   Jen & Kyle

Pros: Professionalism, Timeliness, Price, Picture Quality, Products (website and online slideshows with music)
Cons: None to speak of
When my wife and I were looking for photographers we really had no idea where to start.  We were planning a wedding for a location we had never been before, and were really starting from scratch.  The resort could have provided us with a list of vendors, but we did our own Google-ing and came across quite a few photographers.  In our searches we found some with attractive pricing but poor photo quality, or good quality but high in price or lacking some of the features and extras such as the website, complimentary photo book, etc...  When we found Jamaica Wedding Photos, we knew we had a winner.  We contacted them via email and received a prompt response with detailed availability and pricing for the packages they offered.  Here is a brief run-down of tha package we purchased, which I believe was the cheapest, and there were 2 other options that included longer photo shooting and video...   Package A - US$1300 (50% in advance via PayPal, 50% in person - American or Jamaican accepted - we did Traveler's Cheques which were also fine) -3 hours photo time -wedding website for 1 year -online slideshow with music for 6 months (we ended up having 5 slideshows at no additional cost) -CD of Photoshop edited, high-resolution images -30-page (approx 130 photos) wedding photo album   Work for these guys begins well before the day of the wedding.  They ask you for details leading up to your engagement and wedding to help build the website.  The website has several pages for you to write "Your Story" as a couple, add wedding details, accommodations, RSVPs, and there's an online guestbook for people to leave messages.  The website also includes pictures that you send to Devon to include as a mini-slideshow on the website pages.   Devon Shaw (the proprietor) and his assistant showed up on our wedding day EARLY and provided photo coverage from the minute they arrived, so we got bonus time and that was fantastic.  He had a good feel for what looked good and worked with our wedding party to set up good shots around the resort.  We did some poses, but he also did a very good job of just capturing the mood and everyone just being themselves, which we felt was very important.  He took over 600 pictures in about 3.5 hours, and there was hardly a bad one in the bunch.  He also did a lot of editing, picking certain ones to be soft color, black and white, sepia, and using filters to make some colors pop - truly amazing work.   Devon did not hesitate getting back to work after the wedding and had the slideshows up on our website within about 3 weeks (the same website as before, now with a new page of slideshows).  He did a great job of picking out the best photos and setting them to good music choices that fit the mood of the wedding.  After the slideshows Devon goes about setting up your wedding album, which again is about 30 pages, and he said on average includes 130 pictures.  He offered to pick them out himself, but we preferred to select the pictures we liked for the photo book, so he sent them via Skype and we provided him with a list the next day.  It's only been a few days since we sent him the list of pictures for the book, but I believe he said it will be about 2-3 weeks for us to receive them.  We haven't seen the photo book yet, but we've seen the pictures online.   I cannot say enough how much of a pleasure it was to work with Devon and his team throughout the entire process.  He has been nothing but pleasant and very easy to get a hold of.  He has in fact called us and asked for our input more than we have called him!  We simply cannot wait for the photo book, and highly recommend Devon Shaw and Jamaica Wedding Photos for whatever your needs may be!

love your work
Pros: Professional, on time and more value for the money!
Jamaica Wedding Photos shot my daughter's wedding. Initially, I was referred to another vendor, but they were booked for the day and we had to search on line and find someone else! I am glad I searched! IMO the value we received was much more, including a website (which Devon Shaw, the photographer, would have added more data info, but my daughter, the bride wasn't interested!), a CD with over 700 pictures plus a hard cover wedding album! The wedding package also had the benefits of choosing the number of hours that the photographer would be on site. However, in hindsight, talk to Devon in advance about his staying longer if you need him. We paid for 5 hours, but 6-6.5 would have been perfect!   But these are just details, view for yourself the pictures at   www.RochelleandPeter.JamaicaWeddingPhotos.com   Devon did an amazing job and before our arriving in Jamaica, he (and his partner) contacted us by email and phone as follow up to our questions. By the way, within 6 weeks, my daughter had received her professional pictures. We would highly recommend  his services.   Debra, dmob PS  I also liked the fact that we were able to pay by paypal, which offers some extra security.
