Entire Jovon experience blew us away!!! – After seeing their quality of work on their website, I called Jovon expecting them to be entirely out of our budget. When I called, the receptionist put Jovon himself on the phone who really seemed to want to make this happen for us and worked with me amazingly well to fit our budget. From that moment on, I have NOTHING remotely negative to say about this experience.
I am totally shocked to read bad reviews on this vendor. My experience could not have been more amazing. I first met with David who was our go-to guy throughout the process. His passion for the art of photography and for making our experience special was evident from the first moment. I had the CHILLS looking at his work at our venue.
At our (included) engagement session at Grand Central Station, we were an hour late. David was uncomfortable with cutting short our session but needed to be on time for a later scheduled shoot. He wanted us to have a great experience with a plethora of shots so he called another photographer who happily met us last minute at the Brooklyn Bridge. Although I felt terrible about running late, it ended up being perfect as we got two gorgeous settings and THOUSANDS of unbelievable photos. The second photographer was just as passionate as David and kept us there until the sun was literally going down because he was clearly having such a great time taking photos. I can't describe the quality of the photos. They were breathtaking.
Any time I needed to speak to David or Lisa, they were available, if not, answered me right away. David asked us to call his cell phone any time we needed help so that we didn't have to leave a message at the office.
At the wedding, OF COURSE, I was again late. David and Gabriel were so patient and took that time to get some family shots out of the way. They were incredibly professional and worked seamlessly together. We had more fun with them than any other vendor and many of our guests! They even let me peek at a few photos on the camera. I had NO worries about the quality of the pictures while we awaited the proofs. However, I was completely moved when I saw them. They blew my expectations away. The pictures were complete works of art and captured the most important moments, the moments I wasn't around for and every request I had for the complicated family situations we have. One aspect of the photos that I particularly appreciated was that the mood of our wedding was so evident by the photos and when I look at them, I feel the same exact way I did on that day. I will always have that to cherish. The range of shots were unbelievable as well. Day shots, night shots, candids galore, fun, serious, hilarious, sexy, loving, I could keep going. I have NO idea how I am going to choose for our album. I am wholeheartedly grateful for this company (and especially David) and look forward to using them throughout our lives.
Best black and white work I have ever seen, and they are of me!! – Please girls do not get me wrong, I loved all the colors and portraits and even the way they captured my day! But I was sold on their black and white artist and I just cannot believe the work. They came highly regarded by the Waldorf and I could never put into words the gratitude I have for that recommendation because these photographs are all I have to relive that night and we do not put them down! I loved everyone I worked with. I could call my guy at anytime and he would answer because he gave me his personal phone info. Got my pictures in 3 weeks even though I was told 5 weeks and my online showcase is great too! I even got to meet and choose my team and got the free engagement shoot at the Brooklyn Bridge which even got Mike into it!!! I met them in NY but my mother works her album out of the Nassau County studio, and that alone is priceless. Not as expensive as I thought but not cheap either. I too got more than what I paid for. Only negative was that the online did not go up until 3 weeks, but it was worth the wait!
Good photography – We are very happy with our service at Jovon. We can't wait to get our album.
Thank you Dave and Telmo.
Great customer service – I recommended by best friend to JoVon even before I recieved my album. Obviously I was concerned, but I had such an amazing time with Jerry and Jack that I had nothing but confidence it would all go good thereafter. I was right! Everything has been wonderful the whole way through. I originally signed the contract with a younger photographer named David and he has been my contact ever since. Ask for him if you are searching for someone! Jerry was great but it was Jacks photojournalistic pictures that blew me away! I wasn't even aware he took most of them. My pictures blew anyones I have even seen away! Some of the moments he captured I didn't even experience myself that day. Unbelieavable!! By the end of my wedding I felt like I was better friends with my photographers than I was with some of my guests, I'm serious!! Jack is so funny and cool. But still, until I had my album in hand I was worried. Well it looks great. The girl I sat with was awesome. We were originally given two hours for our appointment. We stayed for something like four and a half into the night and she was cool, no attitude, nothing. I even wanted to choke me! Anyway they are not the cheapest studio but I definetely now know why. You do get what you pay for. I have spent more time in that studio than with any other of my vendors (faze 4, flowers by brian if you were wondering!). My friend has already booked. She actually upgraded and paid for the JoVon team himself. I don't think she had to, but I am definetely looking forward to see what could possibly outshine mine!
Great photography, terrible service – The photography is great-no question. But the service stinks. They're extremely rude, they cancel appointments with only a few hours' notice, and they don't always call you back. Oh... and if you don't change your name be prepared to deal with 1950's-esque requests for your "married name" no matter how many times you politely tell them you .... didn't change your name. I told them time ... and again ... that my married name was the same as my maiden name, but no one there seemed to get it.
amazing prints, real good friendly service, attentive staff – I have yet to wed, however my best friend Lisa got her album back two weeks ago and it looked great. It took her less than six months to complete it. On her STRONG recomendation I paid them a visit and fell in love immediately! I have only had my engagement shoot done, but that alone was amazing. We did it last autumn at Central Park with my fiance and my pup! (he had more fun than us!). She had John and David as her photographers and she was so happy. I have David as my photojournalist (not so sure what that means yet!) and Ralph as my Art Director. He did the engagement shoot at the park and he was so sweet and pleasant to be with, not pushy nor aggressive. The Shots? I could not have imagined. Granted I am nowhere near my wedding date, the experience so far has been real nice. My close close friend sent me here, and she cannot say enough.I just wanted to write this, and I promise to keep this updated as the experience continues!! Good Luck!!
Highly recommended! Spectacular photography! – We've picked Jovon based on a recommendation of a good friend and it turned out to be one of our best decisions. The photos were simply spectacular, artistic and could easily compare to what you would see in a wedding magazine. We looked at more expensive photographers and Jovon's prices and photos were significantly better. In addition, we got over 1,000 pictures from Jovon. Everyone else capped it after a few hundred. Our photographers were Guy and Pedro. Highly recommended! I'm planning to use Jovon for all my future events.
Disappointed Bride – I picked up my proofs a few months ago, at first I knew I wasn't thrilled with my pictures but hoped that I would find enough to put in an album. I am missing several important shots (ie. father giving bride away). When I went to do my album, they kept trying to get me to add pictures for an additional cost of course. I told them why would I pay extra for pictures I don't even like. Jovon called me and offered a few additional things but I guess he changed his mind, so now they are not giving me one thing extra for their horrible pictures but want me to pay extra because it took me so long to do my album. This is one day that cannot be relived, the biggest mistake I made was using this photographer, I don't even have a nice picture of my and my husband to frame.
JOVON PHOTOGRAPHY – I have finally received my wedding album and negatives from Jovon Photography. After many months of waiting, my album has been completed beautifully. I am very happy with the results.
Editorial Review – Photographer available for weddings, bar-mitzvahs and corporate events also puts together DVD filmographies using music and special effects.
