My husband is a big photo buff, so I weeded down all of the photographers on this amazing forum down to three for him to make the final decision. Thanks to all the previous brides for their reviews, because it led us to our amazing photographer Jhankarlo! My husband loved his work, and in reviewing his website absolutely fell in love with his style and amazing eye for lighting, unique shots, and attention to detail.

 

Here is his website and sample photographs that just reinforced to us that he will be able to make us look amazing! Haha.http://jhankarlophotography.com/  We emailed Jhankarlo several times before the wedding day and he was always really good with returning our emails and answering our questions. His packages were also quite flexible (we took the 7 hour package and added 2 more hours on it), and reasonably priced (he comes with his assistant), we also added a trash the dress shoot with him as well.

 

What he actually delivered on the wedding day:

Since we were not able to meet Jhankarlo before hand, I really did not know what to expect. Diana (his assistant) arrived in the middle of my bridal party chaos, as we were running late (like really really late), the girls were not ready, and we had scheduled in a bridal party shoot which we ultimately could not get. My bad on the timing bit. But through the chaos, Diana was able to capture some amazing shots of us getting ready, grabbed all of my ‘need to photograph’ items and did an amazing job of calming me down so that we could make the most of our time.

Jhankarlo and Diana was also able to coordinate between themselves to organize our ‘First Look’ shoot while splitting themselves between myself and my groom for the getting ready shots. Quite honestly, we were running late so after that, I was so busy with being prepared and lined up for the ceremony that I didn’t even notice them. Thinking back now, both my husband and I am just amazed at how they managed to blend in while taking amazing pictures from some crazy angles and not even be noticed! My husband calls them chameleon photographers J

We absolutely trusted in Jhankarlo’s photgraphy’s skills and his eye for detail and did not give him a list of must have photos. I am definitely glad that we did this, we ended up with a wide range of shots, from large group pictures, to sunset photos, candid shots of us enjoying our wedding, dancing, to amazing long range shots that (we had no idea what the set up was for at the time) and now seeing the photos…WOW! For future brides, if Jhankarlo tells you that ‘he has a good idea’, just go with it, follow his instructions and it will turn out amazing.

 

The turnaround time for our photos was about 4 weeks time. Our friends and family have been blown away by how unique and personal our photos were. I cannot recommend Jhankarlo Photography enough. If you want any details let me know.

I really can not say enough about Jhankarlo.  Let me start by saying pictures were something that we wanted, however dreaded.  Neither of us are particularly photogenic in posed situations.  If you have even seen the sex and the city were Harry and Charlotte were taking engagement pictures....well that is my husband, and I am not much better.  My husband also did not want to spend hours away from our guests and the party taking pictures.

 

 We were married at the Dream Puerto Adventurous. Unfortunately we were not able to travel there before the wedding, so I spent a lot of time  researching other wedding.  This is when I came across Jhankarlo.  His reviews were great and I LOVED his pictures.  So we rolled the dice and hired him.  I know that it  is scary hiring someone you have never met based on reviews, but trust me you cannot go wrong hiring Jhankarlo.  Not only were our pictures absolutely amazing, fun, and creative; the photography was very organic.We never felt like we were standing there for hours awkwardly posed taking pictures that will never see the light of day.  We had a TON of fun, especially my husband, which is saying a lot because this was the one thing about the wedding he was dreading.  

 

Jhankarlo's passion for photography really came through and we had an absolute blast!  He was able to capture the fun and the spirit of our wedding.  When I look at the photos I feel like I am there again and it brings a smile to my face. His communication is AMAZING and her is very responsive.  If you are looking for amazing pictures do not hesitate to hire Jhankarlo photography. I promise you will not be sorry.

What a great review, AHL!!! so wonderful to hear how happy you are with your Wedding Day Love Story told in Jhankarlo's photos, and how it takes you right back to those magical moments in time :)

It'd be great to see some of the photos you're talking about - when you get them back!

 

That's why we strongly advise all our wedding couples to hire a professional - if photography is important to them at all. You just can't compare the results you get from the resort guy wearing a "photographer" t-shirt and a real professional!!! Great choice and decision, AHL....thx so much for sharing :)

It's sure to help others here researching their options and deciding which choice is right for them.

 

Wishing you a wonderful life journey ahead wherever that road takes you, and all the Best - cheers!!! team MTM :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
