Best Decision Hands Down

We hired John to do senior pictures and wedding photos. Which turned out fabulous!! We love what he did for our family. We refer him to everyone. He captured everything perfectly. John is very professional but fun and easy going. Thanks John

by Cindy Tracy on Blank Business Name

I don't know where to begin! John went above and beyond not only when taking our engagement photos and wedding photos but the QUICKEST response time if I ever had a question about anything. John also had a very quick turn over time when returning our pictures and video! Stage one productions went above and beyond to make my wedding day so special. It was so convenient to use one company for all the services I needed, (engagement photos, wedding photos, videography, photo booth, and DJ) The photo booth was also a huge hit at our wedding making it a memorable day I will never forget. John and all staff were so professional. I was also so pleased with our DJ, John, keeping every one out on the dance floor! I would recommend this company to everyone!

Wedding day

I was clueless as to how to plan a wedding. We found John and called the number. I received such a welcoming and informative response, my husband and I went and met with John. As soon as we left the meeting we knew that John was the perfect photographer for us. He was so helpful and has a lot of great services to offer. We booked everything through him. Having the cake, photography, DJ, photo booth, and flowers through the same company made the wedding day smooth and stress free. John ensured that all the services were completed and that we were satisfied with everything before the day of the wedding. Then on the wedding day he made sure we got every photo we wanted and they all turned out amazing. John goes above and beyond to make the day as magical as you dreamed of. I would recommend Stage One Productions and John as the photographer to everyone, he is fantastic.

Picture Perfect

We received a brochure for J. Thompson Photography from a wedding show. After we met with John, we knew this was the right choice. He took our engagement photos in 90 degree heat and they came out gorgeous! We also used other services he offers like DJ, photobooth, cake, flowers, etc. On our wedding day our cake topper wasn't sitting right on the cake so he offered to fix it and he personally fixed it. I was so touched that he cared enough to make sure other aspects of our wedding looked right. The photos he took on our wedding day were amazing! We had a wonderful sunset and he took the most beautiful pictures of my husband and I. The DJ was fantastic! Kept the dance floor busy all night. And our guests loved the photo booth. John was wonderful to work with. He is quick to respond to any questions. I highly recommend hiring him and the services he offers.

Photography & DJ

Best photography and DJ services ever!!! Stage One Productions made my wedding day last night the best night of my life!!!! The photographer, John, captured the most amazing pictures and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. He made everything run smoothly and didn't make it to where I was worried if he was taking pictures or not. He was on top of everything and never got me stressed out in the way!! The DJ was also amazing, I got continuous comments of how wonderful he was. He got my crowd going and played all varieties of music for all types of crowds. He also did many fun things that I have never seen at a wedding. I couldn't be happier! I am so happy I decided to choose Stage One Productions and J. Charles Thompson Photography for my wedding day! Thanks so much guys!

WOW!! Thanks Tiffany!! It warms my heart to read reviews like this one. I really appreciate your kind words!! Thanks again!

Thank you for the kind words Paul! I appreciate that. I'm glad you liked the family portraits! Thanks again!

Gil & I just wanted to let you know that words can not express the beautiful memories you have given us to enjoy for the rest of our lives. I for one am my worst critic, and I have to say there is not a photo I don’t love. You capture so much emotion that everytime someone looks at our pictures they mention it. I have looked at other people’s wedding pictures that have paid so much more and the quality just was not there. So let me say again that thank you is just not enough to express our gratitude. You have captured one of our greatest moments on film. Pictures are lifetime memories, and I will refer you to everyone I know.

Michelle & Gillbert F.

Thank you Michele, I appreciate the kind words! I had a great time shooting your wedding. You two are madly in love and it shows in your photos! Congrats to the both of you and thank you!
