Hi I'm John Ferreira

This is me

Columbus, OH Photographer

I’ve always loved photography. I viewed it as a passion, not a job. That was until I married the love of my life last year. We were going through all the insanity that goes into planning a wedding and I was put in charge of finding a wedding photographer. Not only did they have to be talented, but they also had to be an affordable wedding photographer. The words “affordable wedding photographer” are rarely found in the same sentence and when they are the company’s idea of what an affordable wedding photographer is, is vastly different from mine.

I’m middle class, born and raised. The thought of shelling out $4,000+ for someone to take photos blew my mind. It made me sick that event photographers would happily charge someone that much money just because higher prices are expected for weddings. Why was there no one out there who offered truly affordable wedding photography?

Affordable Wedding and Event Photography

As I looked around on different photography websites hoping to find a local photographer within our budget I continued to become blown away by astronomical prices. Why was it impossible to find an affordable photographer? I found someone who did birthday photography and wanted $800 for two hours! Is that Steven Spielberg behind the camera? The list went on and on and on. Engagement photographer, $1,000. Graduation photographer, $500. Headshots, $400. It was insane.

I started John R Photo to give people who are in need of high-quality professional photos, but who don’t want to spend a week’s pay (or more) to get them. Don’t let my prices fool you, I know what I’m doing and my work will speak for itself. I’m not here to rob you of your hard earned money to get the wedding photos you want. Why shell out more than $4,000 when I can get you the high-quality wedding photos for half the price. Let me help you capture those special moments without breaking your bank.

Why I'm the Right Photographer for You

I've been shooting music festivals and concerts for years. At these events, I have no control over the light or what is happening around me. This has helped me be able to notice those small moments that can come and go in the blink of an eye. Photography is about those small moments that only happen once. The reaction of a groom as he sees his beautiful bride for the first time. The face of a father during his dance with his newly married daughter. The laughs and genuine smiles that truly capture that special day. These are the moments that cannot be missed. When it comes to formal poses, I am able to control the scene using my wide variety of lighting equipment to help match the exact mood and tone you want in your photos. I want to be your local Columbus, OH photographer.
