Meet the Artists

John LoConte


Jenni V and Jess Matney




John LoConte is amazing! We got married 1/19/19 at Lakeview Pavilion and John was absolute the man for the job! He made us feel so comfortable at both the engagement shoot and on the big day! He was there to capture all the big moments and the photos are STUNNING! Both my fiancé and I are pretty awkward in front of the camera and John made us feel so comfortable and really caught us in the moment rather than feeling posed or set up! We had a very large wedding party (11 on each side.. yikes) and John was so good at getting the rowdy group all coordinated and managed for group photos which I cannot imagine is easy to do! On top of John’s fun personality and beautiful work.. he had our photos ready for us in under a week!!!! If we got to do the whole day all over again there is no doubt I would choose John LoConte and 617 Weddings!

best of the best

The absolute best of the best! We are so happy that we chose Jenni & Jess to capture our special day. From day one during our engagement shoot, they were so fun and out going. It felt like we were just a group of friends hanging out, goofing off and taking photos. They take the time to get to know their clients, their stories and their personalities. The day of the wedding I was stressed that I wasn't taking enough photos but boy was I wrong! They captured moments that I didn't even realize were being caught. Every single photo was amazing and I can't even narrow down my options for my album. I can't thank these girls enough. I knew they would be excellent and they proved us right straight from the start! I would highly recommend these two for any photography needs! You will NOT be disappointed!

the Perfect choice

John was the perfect choice to have with us on our wedding day! He was incredibly helpful in the planning process and was so fun to have on the day-of. John is so friendly, has a great eye, and was never in the way as he captured incredible photos from start to finish. Our church was pretty small yet I never even noticed him during the ceremony, and we have incredible photos from all angles. He was great with our family and friends and made sure we got everything we wanted from the day. I would absolutely recommend him to any couple that wants a stress-free experience with a talented photographer, and to get incredible photos of your big day. John's the best!!

So incredible!

I can't say enough great things about Jenni and Jess! Let me start off with our engagement photo shoot which was included in our package (so incredible!). Their personalities are so fun, energetic, and open, they immediately made us feel comfortable. They posed us and completed our whole shoot in 45 minutes, which was amazing since it was close to 90 degrees that day. And our photos could not have come out more perfect. Our wedding day photos are amazing! They are so talented, every single photo they took was perfect. We were able to complete our first look photos and all of our wedding party photos before the ceremony, allowing our wedding party to enjoy cocktail hour and giving us some extra time to talk to our guests (which that in itself is incredible seeing as how we each had 9 bridesmaids and groomsmen!) I can't thank them enough for capturing such amazing moments and memories we will have forever. If you are looking for incredible photos with professionals who know how to get the job done and make you feel so comfortable you need to use Jenni V!

John LoConte

Lead Photographer

John LoConte aka “JLo” is a wedding photographer because he truly loves capturing emotion. The kindness, happiness and Love that surrounds your entire day. John was lucky enough to get a peek into the event business at a young age due to his father being a successful Boston area Disc Jockey.

His style tends to take a more natural/candid approach. This allows you to enjoy your entire wedding day with family and friends with the peace of mind that his photographs are telling your story. When it comes time for your family portraits and formals… gone are the days of awkwardly long poses! John can make them fun, fast, loving and exciting! He believes that it’s always the moments in between poses that make the best photographs!

“My Photography practices the creative philosophy of performing in an unobtrusive, candid manner, allowing me to capture the most intimate and personalized details of your wedding day. I value the importance of allowing your personalities, relationship, and style to be showcased. Included are traditional elements blended with a natural/candid approach. Blending the styles allows me to creatively tell your story. There are various options for packaging you may choose from, each allowing you a surplus of beautiful imagery while maintaining a practical budget.”
