About John Kennedy
I am John, an award winning and published wedding photographer from Kent.
This page is, as the title says, about me. A little bit about where I started and how I got to where I am today doing a job that I truly love and enjoy.
1989 I picked up a photography book and was intrigued. I went out and bought a camera and fell in love with photography
1995 I started driving wedding limousines. This is when I first realised how much I enjoyed weddings.
1998 I photographed my first wedding. It was a friends wedding on a beach near Sarasota in Florida.
I photographed several more friends weddings in the following years.
2015 SHOT by JFK Photography was born and I made the leap to photographing weddings professionally.
After many years photographing weddings I now enjoy them more than I ever did. I get so much pleasure from being around people on their biggest day, and feel truly lucky to be able to capture all of the memories that fill a wedding day.
My photography style is very relaxed, natural and candid, yet still professional. My style of photography and the editing that follows gives timeless imagery. True to life and honest colours that reflect your day and will never appear to look dated. I love to capture those little moments that are so special but will often be missed with a more formal and posed photography style. I aim to capture those intimate moments, the smiles, the happy tears, but I also take the time to get the important little details of your day. If you are wearing your nan's ear rings, or your grandads pocket watch, let me know and I promise to capture those too. It is your wedding day, and it's all about you, and I never forget that.
