Hi! We’re John and Jessica, and our little family includes our son Cian (a photographer in training!) and Bowser, our cat. Our love of photography is what brought us together as a couple and we have so much fun working together! Outside of photography, our family loves cooking and baking together (Jessica writes a food blog too), going on Boy Scouts camping adventures, gaming, gardening, and just about every crafty hobby you can imagine (with the craft room packed to bursting to prove it!). 🙂
We have a combined 17 years of professional photography experience and an unobtrusive documentary style perfectly suited to capturing the organic nature of weddings and other family milestones. We focus on documenting authentic laughter, joy, surprises, and special moments as your day unfolds.
We offer several different collections in order to accommodate a range of budgets, and custom collections can be created to perfectly meet your needs! We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your date, with the balance due 30 days prior to your event.
Having John and Jessica shoot our wedding was like having two friends do the honors- it just so happened that these friends happened to be really good at taking pictures. When a medical emergency meant that we needed to revise the photo schedule 3 days ahead of the wedding, they were able to accommodate by arriving earlier than planned. They have a great way of encouraging people to be themselves in front of the camera- they gave this pair of introverts enough direction to set up some great pictures, but otherwise kept the portraits from feeling performative or scripted. And, they delivered photos like these a week in advance of the estimated delivery date. They were fabulous to work with in all respects and I'm so glad that we chose them to capture the memories of our day!Renn and David
John and Jess were great! They responded to our questions quickly and were able to accommodate our requests. Having two people take photos gave us the chance to get pictures from different angles. It also meant that no moments were missed because there were photographers in multiple locations catching all of the excitement! Our photos are beautiful!!Joy and Mark
John and Jessica were perfect. They shot our wedding at Westminster Hall in Baltimore, MD on October 29, 2016. We honesty could not have asked for a better team to work with. Multiple people at the wedding complimented how nice and professional they were and also well they blended into the crowd. During the planning process he sent a comprehensive list of potential shots to review, and he didn't miss a single one. The funny part is I don't even remember actually seeing them take any of the fantastic candid shots they got, which is a testament to how good they really are. We got our pictures back in a very timely fashion and they are fantastic. From our first meeting until the handing over of our photos it was the perfect experience. As an added bonus they provided us with a beautiful wooden carved box with our prints along with the USB containing the files. This was on top of the online gallery. The pricing was extremely competitive, honestly a steal with their skill level. We are just so happy and pleased with their service I could go on for days. Hire them. Thats really the best advice I could give any soon to be married couple!Brenda and Kyle
JBP captured the big and small awesome moments that we would have missed, with fun, beautiful, artful shots. They were flexible and unobtrusive; they understood what we wanted-unique, candid shots of guests and wedding party alike, and delivered more than we expected. We look through our shots often, and feel like we're right back there, having a blast! We felt well-cared-for, and highly recommend John Bidlack Photography.Will and Kathy
Very organized and professional. He was able to capture moments that we would have missed without his ability to blend into the rhythm of the wedding. Without a doubt You can trust this photographer to get the shots you didn't even know you wanted.Tracy and Mike
We’ll get back to you right away! 🙂
