My Fuji's think differently. 😊😊 Reply ChrisOnTech says: December 19, 2019 at 12:17 pm THIS is how instructional videos should be done. It's priceless as if being on-set with you getting first hand instruction from a master in their craft. Oh, and goes without saying, absolutely beautiful photos. Reply Ernie Tse says: December 19, 2019 at 3:42 pm Love to watch. Thank you Reply king kago says: December 19, 2019 at 4:01 pm I just discovered this channel, I'm glad I did, hopefully there's much more of this awesome content to come:)! Reply André Spinola says: December 19, 2019 at 8:49 pm Awesome video, loved watching the whole behind the scenes and these photos came out absolutely amazing! I'm sure they were over the moon when they saw them! Can't wait to see more 👏🏻👌🏻 Reply Cary M says: December 20, 2019 at 3:36 am Love it byt any videos with a reception with super poor lighting that you felt the fuji really had to work hard for focus? Reply Kristie Jochim says: December 20, 2019 at 7:17 am Which lens would you suggest for a lifestyle family shoot? I like to get in close for most of my shots. With you xt3 do you use continuous autofocus more? Thank you!! Love your behind the scenes! Reply Kristie Jochim says: December 20, 2019 at 8:07 am A definite yes to a posing video! Reply Tochukwu Ngoka says: December 21, 2019 at 12:11 am How many batteries do you use through out the day ? I can vaguely remember you talking about it in one of your videos. Reply BEairsoftTV says: December 21, 2019 at 12:45 am Thanks for this video 👌🏼 you make it look so easy. Reply Aldi Rivaldi says: December 21, 2019 at 8:11 am love it, learn a lot from this channel Reply Bradley Kayser says: December 21, 2019 at 8:54 am Great video. I really enjoyed it. Your photos are stunning. After hearing everybody talk about the 56mm, it surprised me how much you use your 35mm and how great those photos were. I enjoyed the longer format. Also do you have a video on lighting a reception with the fuji's. Reply Dracula Dicruz says: December 21, 2019 at 5:52 pm Subb'd !! Great work alone… Risky… Awesome… Thanks for sharing… GOD BLESS !! Reply freeplay says: December 21, 2019 at 9:12 pm This video was awesome. Really well done. Photos look great as well. Would love to see a video on that stitching technique for the wide ceremony shot. Looked amazing. Reply strommboy62 says: December 22, 2019 at 10:47 am I also own the 23mm F2.0 but Mine was back focusing on my xpro1 at f2.0, other than that I love it. Were you shooting your 23mm wide open John? Reply Casey Schneider says: December 23, 2019 at 7:47 am Awesome and informative content! Thank you!! Yes, definitely make a posing video! Reply danny says: December 23, 2019 at 3:21 pm You are so talented! I always liked shooting people and I think this is the best example of what I like to do if I wanna be a professional. Thanks for the tutorial! Reply remo niffeler says: December 23, 2019 at 9:00 pm i love your video, it's so good and you're doing it so well. Your explanations are so helpful. Thanks thats the Best one Reply Elias Pap says: December 24, 2019 at 10:31 am Thanks for the insight into your work, thats so generous of you, love how you can get amazing shots with a crops sensor, I noticed you took some of the prep shots outside, Its not something i would have done, is this because the crop sensor fuji x couldn’t handle the low light? Reply Alex Lewis says: December 25, 2019 at 12:16 pm Yo! John this was awesome man. How many batteries did you use in the Go-pro shooting all day? Reply sexysilversurfer says: December 26, 2019 at 5:46 am First time viewer, beautiful photos, you have a calmness in your voice that made such a long video watchable. Reply Photo-Me-Ike says: December 26, 2019 at 9:50 am That turntable tho.. Great job on this man! Great info here! Reply Gwen Andersen says: December 26, 2019 at 2:31 pm Long versus short? The length allowed this to be extremely helpful – and yet I delayed watching it for weeks because it is long. Thank you for putting together an excellent video showing you in the moment. Reply Paul Gallagher says: December 27, 2019 at 5:06 pm A very nice instructional video. Good work. I have a question. How do you mount the GoPro and get that point of view. Assume it's on your shoulder somehow? Reply Del Smith says: December 28, 2019 at 3:40 pm Great vid. How many batteries do you typically take with you for a wedding? Reply Анастасия Орешина says: December 28, 2019 at 5:32 pm thank you so much for this vid! Reply anh vu mai says: December 29, 2019 at 10:56 am why dont you use 35f1.4 and 23 1.4 ? Reply Emily Grace says: December 30, 2019 at 2:06 am Why do you shoot the bridal party photos top down? The images look as though you are above them and shooting down on them… Reply James Wong says: December 30, 2019 at 12:59 pm I notice you don't use the eyecups. Is it because of your glasses or the way you carry your cameras with the slings? Reply Gavin Brown says: December 30, 2019 at 9:07 pm Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to make and post this video. It's so informative and interesting. I have learned so much (even after being a keen amateur photographer for 35+ years). Reply Milk Komson says: December 31, 2019 at 5:56 am Bro!! I can’t believe you’re putting out this content. This is super helpful and you’re mad kind!! Thank you bro!! Really appreciate this. Keep up the good work! 😆🙌🏼 Reply Sarita Wilson says: December 31, 2019 at 12:18 pm Great job on this video John! It really gave some good tips for getting through the day, especially with the dealing with the sunlight during the ceremony. Reply Edin Nueva says: December 31, 2019 at 11:34 pm I like this video. Very informative and helpful for beginners. Reply PP S says: January 1, 2020 at 3:24 pm Amazing video , extremely educational with real wedding … great photos. Reply Christina M. Cooper Photography says: January 1, 2020 at 9:44 pm Wow. That was amazing! I would totally love to be a 2nd shooter (not that you would need one, obviously. Lol) That was the best bts wedding video I have ever seen! I feel like I learned so much! I can't wait to get out there! Thank you! 🙏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Reply Steve Fu says: January 3, 2020 at 5:31 am Thanks for sharing man!!! Reply Bernard Sullivan says: January 3, 2020 at 9:13 am Great video mate thanks for sharing. Reply Alterick Wilson says: January 3, 2020 at 4:17 pm Are you shooting manual? Reply Alterick Wilson says: January 3, 2020 at 6:01 pm Awesome Reply Eikichigai (Billy Woolfolk) says: January 4, 2020 at 4:35 am I just stumbled across this video because I was searching for anything on the X-T3 and I have to say, this is probably the most sublime bts/instructional video I have ever seen. Please keep making them. You have a new subscriber. Reply Md.Ibrahim Hossain Niloy says: January 4, 2020 at 10:17 pm lovely shots. yes , i want to learn brneizar mode Reply Timothy Gordon says: January 4, 2020 at 10:25 pm Your voice over is GREAT. You could be a voice actor. Also, would love to see a video on how you’re getting those gorgeous stitched together images.

Can I ask you how many batteries do you use for one wedding? Thanks for the video. Reply ATUL KUMAR says: January 5, 2020 at 4:17 pm ✌good job…am very satisfying. 👋👋 Reply Abigaël de Vries-Palijama says: January 6, 2020 at 8:34 pm Great video. Thanks. Reply photom2 says: January 6, 2020 at 10:25 pm I love your energy. You don't worry about taking your time to get those offbeat images. I agree with you letting the couple self pose for natural. Reply Stealt707 says: January 7, 2020 at 9:08 am Hi I have been watching Taylor Jackson wedding photographer until I found your tutorial which has been so far the best and thorough with clear instructions. I have one question about whether you shoot on manual exposure or Aperture priority? Thanks for posting this content free! Reply LISLOVESTRUTH says: January 7, 2020 at 11:36 am I love your tone wheb directing the shots. I'm sure youe voice calms and reassures them. I love how you let them know what to do ahead of time. Beautiful! Reply Nichole Loranger says: January 7, 2020 at 6:36 pm Great video! I am new and have some of my first weddings this year. This helps me so much! Thank you so much! Would love to see a video on on camera & off camera flash! Reply Al Ponton says: January 7, 2020 at 9:07 pm You seem to use all Natural light Reply Bobb Photography says: January 7, 2020 at 11:58 pm Thanks for this awesome video The moment i saw the door from the first look shoot i thought of a holding hands tightshot framing around the house Reply UnderGround Knox says: January 8, 2020 at 3:04 am This is by far the best step by step video! Clear concise instruction that we can follow along easily. Thank you! Reply David Hernandez says: January 8, 2020 at 7:50 am Hi John, thank you for these amazing and educational videos. I started my photography business late 2018. I started assisting and second shooting in 2019. Now in 2020, I have 15 weddings booked, March being my first wedding. I will definitely use your videos for ideas and apply to my weddings. Continue doing your thing. Thank you! Reply huba hp says: January 8, 2020 at 10:00 am Nice video 👌 Reply huba hp says: January 8, 2020 at 10:02 am Hi, I have a question, are you taking all photos in raw? Reply Cenk Alpsan says: January 8, 2020 at 2:54 pm Guys don't be stupid please. You know what he means. If you are making money from photography than you are a PRO! Reply Jose Betancourt says: January 8, 2020 at 3:53 pm Thanks for the video. Leave the format as is. Reply Ciaran Whelan says: January 9, 2020 at 1:01 am I love your long length full shoot. You now have a new subscriber. Interesting to see you use the lens combo that I already have. I was saving for the 50-140 beast, but after seeing your shots I am seriously rethinking my approach. I think I am better off now to invest in a new Godox V1 speedlight. I did enjoy your layup on the tables. My last wedding I shit seriously lost a lot of detail shots as I spent more time, and probably too much time on the bride prep. I will look at your patreon Reply Christian Logsdon says: January 9, 2020 at 11:26 am Great video. Loved it! Make more! Reply Norbert Palma says: January 9, 2020 at 3:55 pm Love this video! I’ve learned a lot. Thank you so much for your kindness in sharing such a helpful video. 😊 Reply David Hamlin says: January 9, 2020 at 6:31 pm Great video! The coverage was really excellent. also I would love to see a video about posing and how you go about it. Reply Ian Robinson says: January 9, 2020 at 6:39 pm Absolutely fantastic video and wonderful preset pack, may I ask if your camera was in standard or was it in a film simulation? Kind regards Reply Michael Siino says: January 9, 2020 at 11:22 pm Wow this was one of the most helpful videos I have seen. Thank you so much for sharing. Reply Eric Jackson says: January 10, 2020 at 2:49 am This video is so informative and detailed. You certainly have a knack for teaching. Please keep doing what you are doing. You have earned this subscriber. I would love to see a video on how you Stitched all the pictures together. Reply Andres Linardi says: January 10, 2020 at 7:24 am Amazing video! really like this type of videos. Pleasee do more! And yes for the posing and directing the couple video! Awesome work 🙂 Reply TheRexonmax says: January 10, 2020 at 8:48 pm Keep the videos just like this! I would even watch if they were longer. What you are doing is so helpful and inspiring. Definitely appreciate the content! Reply Stephen C. says: January 11, 2020 at 12:54 am Awesome video! I was wondering if you used face/eye detection for the portraits? Reply romy kom says: January 11, 2020 at 11:38 am Just awesome; one of the best hands-on videos i have ever seen on YT, very generous to share. Thank you so much, absolutely stunning pics. Regarding the long vs shorter sections of posting, i think smaller sub 20 mn videos are easier to click on and follow especially for someone who discovered your channel for the first time. Saying that, I was sure I wont watch till the end and eventually I surely did. Keep posting, I subscribed. Reply Hugh Christie says: January 11, 2020 at 12:50 pm Good video and I enjoyed the length, keep it up brother 👌🏾 Reply Simply Jake says: January 11, 2020 at 2:35 pm This was amazing, I learned a lot, thank you <3 Your photos are beautiful.I'm starting my photography career and this gave me better understanding of wedding photography.

Loved all the information and behind the scenes! You are so talented! Reply Razzaq Redha says: January 13, 2020 at 1:39 pm if i only hv 23mm would it give similar "close up" image like 35mm would by zoom with feet..? Reply Juul van Geleuken says: January 13, 2020 at 1:46 pm Woooo that Brenizer shot is amazing! Reply Juul van Geleuken says: January 13, 2020 at 1:47 pm So do you ever feel like you're interrupting the ceremony by walking around and by photographing reactions/emotions? Reply Juul van Geleuken says: January 13, 2020 at 1:55 pm Did you ever use the flash? Amazing how you got so much dynamic range when it was so sunny outside. I use the xt20 and I don't seem to have that much success with it! Reply McKinley Griggs says: January 13, 2020 at 5:00 pm How do you get your go pro to stay on your shoulder? Reply Sean Neale says: January 13, 2020 at 8:28 pm Another great video 🔥 Reply Nick Emm says: January 14, 2020 at 10:01 am "big rule for today I'm gonna shoot candid, I'm not gonna say have fun or anything" moments later " put your arm down, nice big smiles on your face" ermmmm Reply ItsFrenchy says: January 15, 2020 at 12:05 am I DREAM to shoot a wedding at location like this!!

I appreciate it so much! I just found your YOUTUBE and I'm stoke! Subcribed and LOVE.. not just LIKE! LOL. Thank YOU. I look forward for more vids! Reply Arturo Olvera says: January 15, 2020 at 5:57 am Typically a hundred times Reply Jr Nillo says: January 15, 2020 at 8:00 am Great info and Supper helpful!! Thank you for putting such a video content like this!! Reply Risedge91 says: January 15, 2020 at 2:43 pm Nice Video. Your shots are just perfect. Did you think this is also possible with a Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II or X?I'm a big fan from stabilisation of my Olympus Camera and Fuji X-T3 is a very good Camera but they don't have stabilisation and that confused me a little bit. I want to buy a new camera and other systems are not excluded. What do you like about your Fuji Cameras? Reply Estina Francis says: January 15, 2020 at 4:54 pm So much (good things) to comment on!! But I'll sum it up with: 1) This has to be one of the most beautiful wedding films/photoshoots I've ever seen! 2) The post edits are just perfect! 3) EXCELLENT tutorial, especially for visual learners, like myself. I'm definitely interested in a Brenizer Technique training (if I haven't already missed it. I'm new to the channel! :)) Reply Moneeca Perez says: January 16, 2020 at 4:53 am this very informative! thank you so much! ❤ Reply David Coyan says: January 16, 2020 at 6:31 am Dang man. Beautiful. The whole damn thing. May all your brides and grooms be that photogenic moving forward too! Thanks for the share. Great work. Reply Jude Furia says: January 16, 2020 at 11:36 am The lowest ISO to achieve the highest Dynamic Range for XT3 is ISO640. So if the lighting is harsh and you don't want your background details to be blown out, just balance it with your shutter and aperture. Reply Brandon says: January 16, 2020 at 12:07 pm Hey mate! much love from Australia, youve actually inspired me to switch from Sony to Fujifilm, just a quick question, i pick up the XT-3 tomorrow but im not too sure which flash/diffuser to get, which one do you have? Cheers ! Reply Jay Christianson says: January 16, 2020 at 1:03 pm Thanks for your great video… what aperture were you commonly shooting with? From groups to the couple…? Love the prime lenses… Reply Nomsa Mtsweni says: January 16, 2020 at 2:42 pm I really love the structure to how you work. Also how calm you are throughout!! Thank you for helping some of us and adding to the photography industry at large. Keep doing such an amazing job amd delivering such beautiful images!! 👌😊🙏 Reply Stephan Alberger says: January 16, 2020 at 3:42 pm He looks so damn cute… I guess he is MADE for documenting weddings – nice work man!
