Small Garden Wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

That's a tough question. Josh had so many good ideas. I think the picture with our wedding bands on an old tree stub is my most favorite.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

The candids are always my favorite, and that is definitely where he excels. Really, you forget he is even there. It helps everything look extremely natural - even for some one who is not photogenic, aka me.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

In our package, we had an engagement session (which we loved), two photographers, and all the images burned onto a DVD.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

He created a very casual atmosphere that everyone could feel comfortable in. We didn't have endless staged photos, just a few. Most of the photos were 'in the moment' or slightly staged but then he always encouraged us to be ourself. He did an excellence job.

Great pictures

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite was the "men's warehouse photo shoot" our ushers did while we were taking pictures with our parents and that we were able to take pictures in my parent's backyard.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They were great. We have tons of candids and the kids in the picture are especially cute! We also have a ton of very neat pictures of our dance.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had two photographers, an engagement session, a DVD, and we plan to get an album with mini pic books.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

They LOVED him. They even talked him in to doing a family portrait of my mother's side for my grandparent's 50th wedding annversary.

Grubich Wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Too many to choose from! Todd and I were married on a gold course. We absolutely love the picture of him and I kissing with the course and its lush surroundings all around us.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Action shots were perfect and were exactly what we wanted on the day! We hired Josh from out of state just because we knew that action shots is one of his strong points!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had two photographers, dvd and proof book.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh was a lot of fun and made us all feel so comfortable, even with a camera on us all day. He called friends and family by their names.

Simple Chicago

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Josh captured the best picture of us in the Crown Fountain in Millenium Park. I took off my shoes and hiked up my dress and we walked on the water. Adam and I were laughing through out all those pictures and the picture behind us on the fountain wall was a big smile - couldn't have planned it better.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Most of my favorite pictures were candid shots. Josh has a way of picking up on a moment and capturing it. Our posed shots were great too because he had a way of disarming us that brought out our real smiles.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Our package included a proof book and DVD.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh was part of our intimate group (only 20 people). He set everyone at ease immediately. He was very unintrusive and when I look back all the posed and candid pictures tell you exactly what happend that day.

Jan. 3rd Wedding Great Pictures!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

It's so hard to choose...one of my favorite shots is the one outside with the two of us kissing. The one at our reception at the head table is cool too! I love the ones in the doorway of me with my flowers and the ones that you took on the green chair of just me turned out great! The family portraits were great too! The kids pictures were priceless! GREAT JOB! I loved them all!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Josh did a great job all day. He had great ideas for locations and shots. They turned out great. Portraits were well organized and looked fantastic.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

DVD of the pohtos were included. Two photographers were also included and a proof book.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh was funny with all the family and people in the wedding. He was great with my mom and dad. Josh and Vicki are friendly, but serious about their job! I'd recommend them to anyone!

Outstanding Photographers / Photography

What was your favorite wedding photo?

We have too many favorites to count (and, as a result, we have wedding pictures hanging up all over our house)! Josh and Vicki were incredible at capturing moments and letting the emotion show through in the pictures. There is one picture in particular that is stunning for its simplicity. It was a colder-than-expected day in October and after we thought we were done taking pictures, my husband and I were waiting for everyone else to come outside. My husband put his arms around me to keep me warm and we are forehead to forehead and both smiling to ourselves. Josh caught that moment and put it in black and white -- it's gorgeous. I also liked Josh and Vicki's playfulness -- our modern American Gothic picture is priceless!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

We got to know Josh before the wedding during our pre-wedding consultation and right away we knew that his personality fit us perfectly. He's laid-back, but has a creative eye and knows what he wants to get accomplished. When the big day came, he was with us the whole day and fit right in with our family and friends as though he had known us for years. I am impressed with all of the pictures Josh and Vicki took (candids, posed shots, etc.), but I was most impressed with Josh's creativity. He saw photo opportunities with backgrounds I wouldn't have expected that turned out beautifully.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Josh and Vicki were there with us from the getting-ready stage to the reception. All of the pictures were posted online and Josh put up a sneak peek on his blog soon after the wedding (which was perfect because we were so excited to see the pictures). He also sent a photo proof book and a DVD with all of the pictures.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Both Josh and Vicki were so natural that everyone was comfortable right from the beginning. They both have easy-going personalities that make them really easy to work with, but they both know what they are looking for and will get people where the need to be. Most importantly, because our wedding party felt so comfortable around them, they could act like themselves and that is where the best pictures came from -- you can see our personalities and emotions coming out through the photographs. Josh and Vicki made our day so easy and enjoyable and I can't believe how many compliments I have gotten about our photographs. We would absolutely recommend them to everyone.

Capturing the moment...

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There is one picture where Josh put us in a door way the the capitol (in Madison, WI). I was leaning slighty on Mike. I can remember feeling so special in that moment and he captured the essence of Mike and I in that photo. That photo is the christmas gift for everyone in the family this christmas.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Since we know josh from other family and friend weddings, we felt extremely comfortable with him. Both he and Vicki(his wife) felt like part of the gang. Josh rode along with us in the limo and doubled as our bartender-such a great guy. They both just worked with whatever was going on at the time. A good majority of the pictures are candids, which is exactly what we wanted. He captured so many of the feelings of the day.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Both Josh and Vicki were there the whole day. They took pictures from getting ready at the church through most of the dance. We got a proof book and DVD of all of the pictures. Josh also did engagement pictures for us.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Like I mentioned before, we felt like Josh and Vicki fit right in with our family and friends. They are so flexible and helpful throughout the day. Mike and I had no idea what to do for the cake cutting and Josh walked us through it. We are so pleased with his service We would recommend Josh to anyone!

Lake Geneva wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There was a courtyard with a fish pond and fountain in the hotel where we got ready for the ceremony. Josh had us at a small table next to the pond and he took photos from the top floor of the hotel looking down at us. The perspective is magnificent. It's a creative and beautiful shot.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Josh and Vicky were great with posed shots. They made everyone feel comfortable and paid attention to every detail, so we all looked great. As for candid shots, I never felt like Josh was in the way, yet he was always available when we needed him, and got shots that we weren't even aware of.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We chose to purchase all of the photos outright on CDs, so we could make our own copies for family and friends. That option and the actual cost of Josh and Vicky's time on the day was incredibly reasonable. We were very pleased with what we got for the price.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh and Vicky's professionalism and humor made everyone feel at ease. It was clear that they knew what they were doing and really wanted us to look our best. During moments when I was alone with my husband (to be) or with my sisters getting ready, he always asked if he could come in to capture the moments.

Professional, Personable, Artistic, and Much More!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Josh took a couple of fabulous photos of us in front of the Capitol. Our favorite of these is probably one where we are walking away from Monona Terrace towards the Capitol and looking back over our shoulders. We have received many compliments on these Capitol photos.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Josh and Vicky were always around and captured amazing candid shots, but were practically invisible. Josh was always there when we wanted a specific photo without having to track him down and without being obtrusive.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We ordered the DVD of all the photos and after we saw the photos, we also decided to order an album. Josh designed the layout and it was perfect- everyone we have showed the album to have been in awe of the photos, the album itself, and how it all came together. Although the album wasn't inexpensive, the cost of all-day photography and the DVD was extremely reasonable and for the end result, unbeatable!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh and Vicky were very personable and did everything they could to help make our wedding day run smoothly while capturing all the moments along the way. We had multiple guests comment on how great they thought the photographer was and how much they enjoyed getting to interact with him. Photography was the one aspect of the wedding I cared most about and I couldn't have asked for anyone better than Josh!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Our favorite is the one Josh used on the cover of the proof book, of us facing each other standing at the bottom of the stone steps by the Japanese Garden in the Rotary Gardens in Janesville, where our ceremony and reception where. It was redone in a sepia tone and the effect was incredible.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

He had great ideas in mind for the shots he wanted and was excellent about getting people where he needed without being demanding. He was also great about taking ideas from us when we offered them, and incorporating them in with his own ideas or letting us know whether they would work or not. We hardly noticed him there when we weren't doing posed shots and he obviously knew where, when and how to get the best pictures throughout the whole event without being intrusive. His wife took pictures in the dressing room while the girls were getting ready, and even though it was a fairly small room, she got beautiful shots of us getting ready without even slightly getting in the way. We had disposable cameras on the tables for guests to use during the ceremony to supplement the professional photos, but the ones we got from Josh are so great, it hasn't even bothered us at all that we haven't gotten the other cameras developed yet!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We chose to purchase the rights to the images on a CD because there were so many we wanted and so many other people who wanted to order them, that it was the best option for us financially. The price for the actual photographer services throughout the ceremony and reception were very affordable, which was excellent since we were on a fairly tight budget. Honestly, I think we easily could have paid twice as much for the service and photos we got. If we had other events we needed a professional photographer for, we'd hire him again in a heartbeat!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh and Vicki were so incredibly down-to-earth and friendly that everybody was talking and joking with them like they were long-time friends or other members of the family. It was easy to tell that they both loved with they do and they knew what they were doing, and that ultimately shows in the pictures. When they were done with their paid services, we invited them to stay as our guests for the rest of the reception because we enjoyed them so much. They declined, but I think it was because they had a babysitter to relieve at home. :)

Must Have Photographer

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite picture is of my husband and I in front of the capitol. Josh put it in black and white and it is absolutely stunning! We've gotten so many compliments on it.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

To be honest, I have no idea how Josh got some of the pictues he did. I remember seeing him here and there through out the night, but when I saw my proofs, I was blown away with the great pictures he captured. Pictures I would have never even thought of, Josh captured and they are now some of my favorites! For the posed photos, Josh was fantastic! He knew what he wanted and was able to clearly express that. He made sure to pay attention to the little details, like the height bridesmaids held their boquets. I never felt like he was too pushy, but he was still very good at directing. My whole wedding party and all of our guests felt very comfortable and the pictures are proof of that!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

My husband and I chose to purchase the rights to all of our images. We now have a dvd of every single photo Josh took and we can print as many as we want, wherever we want. It is one of the best things! I would highly recommend doing this. It is very cost efficient!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh was direct, not pushy, and very relaxed. Everyone felt very comfortable and the poses were all very natural. He was extremely friendly and really made an effort to get everyone's name down. I am beyond thrilled with the finished products and also with how the day went. Josh was fantastic!! I would never want to go back and change my photographer. I will recommend him to all of my friends and family!!

Amazing Photographer!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

It is hard to chose just one because Josh had so many great shots. However, one of my favorite pictures was one of my husband and I kissing in the middle of the street during Taste of Madison. Josh focused on us, but you could see all the people walking in the background. It is a very cool looking.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Josh was great with both posed portraits and candids. He captured all the details and special moments perfectly. He was pleasure to work with and blended right in with the guests.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We ordered all the photos on a cd and a few pictures in hard copy so that we could frame them. Josh also offered to make us an album. His price was extremely reasonable.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh was so friendly and nice, everyone was immediately comfortable working with him. He was my favorite vendor at my wedding.

Excellent Photography & Customer Service - Charise & Joshua

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite picture is a black and white image of me and my husband at the altar. Taken from the back of the building, you can see all of the people seated and the architecture of the historical church from top to bottom.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Josh Gormley was very good about communicating with the priest before the mass to find out what would be appropriate or not during the ceremony. He took pictures from many angles as well. He was great with posed and action shots. There were a lot of children at my wedding, and Josh exceeded our expectations when working with them.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

The photograper offered bound books, DVDs, and professional quality prints. I was given a proof book soon after the wedding and later was given the option of buying a CD with all of the prints on it.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh Gormly was very easy to work with. He has a very fun personality and made the photo session easy. At our reception he was able to get many pictures of our guests. I would give Josh Gormly Photography my highest recommendation and would not hesitate to use them for another event again.

All my dreams came true

What was your favorite wedding photo?

This is a difficuly question to answer because there are so many pictures I love! One of my favorites would have to be a photo of my husband and I during our first dance, neither of us were paying attention to anything else happening around us and Josh managed to get a great photo of us looking into each other's eyes, completely unaware our photo was being taken. It sits on my desk at work.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Josh took a lot of photos of details of my wedding dress and the reception hall when no one was around. Josh took the posed photos at the church and at Lake Wingra as quickly as possible and was able to take a ton in the short period of time! I never noticed Josh while the ceremony was happening but he once again got everything that happened and same with the reception. Josh has a real talent for candid, action shots as well as posed photos.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We ordered the cd of our photos so we could print as many as we wanted and did order a few 5x7's and 4x6's of the website as well. Josh gave us a book of all of the proofs as well which is incredible. We did have an engagement picture session with Josh that was negoiated into the price. He did an amazing job taking pictures at the Monona Terrace, in front of and inside the Capital in a snow storm.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Josh met with my husband and I twice prior to our wedding day and was aware of who would be in which pictures and where the photo sessions would take place and when. Josh was very open to the ideas that my husband and I had for where we wanted to do our photos and let us know that it was our day and we could direct it. Josh joked with my family and wedding party throughout the wedding day and even followed us to the Laurel Tavern to take candid photos us of relaxing before the reception. My entire wedding party made comments throughout the day and the days after the wedding about how great Josh was and how he wasn't even noticeable for the most part after the church and location shots, yet managed to capture it all! Josh was very respectful with everyone and did not make anyone do any uncomfortable poses, rather let the wedding party decide what would be fun for them. We had nine nieces and nephews in photos and Josh was very easy going with all of them and made it quick so they wouldn't have to wait long! Those are some of my favorites !
