Hey there! My name is John Foley and I’d be honored to photograph your life.  Photography is my obsession and I’m deeply dedicated to serving my clients with what I love to do. With that being said, as much as I love being a photographer, I live for my family and LOVE being a dad to our two precious daughters. (Our second child was just born this past April!) Sleep…? What’s that?

I’d love to learn more about YOU and your life so I can be the one to tell your story through timeless imagery so let’s chat!





“John took both our engagement and wedding photos and was fantastic to work with. We are so happy with our photos, which are more beautiful than we could have imagined! We wanted to go with someone who was going to take more artistic and creative shots than just your average posed photos, and that is exactly what John is good at. He knows how to use light and composition to put together a great shot, and he is laid back and easy to work with every step of the way.” — Amanda

“John did our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. He made us feel ‘Pinterest Perfect’” — Kelly

“John is amazing! Both for our engagement shoot and wedding day temperatures were not normal for the season. I can honestly say having John on our wedding day helped me stay calm. I originally got his contact from a friend and I am so glad we went with him. I agree with the WOW factor- every time I look at his work I feel like I am in the picture that's just how great of an artist he is.” — Sarah
