Here are a few of the things that people are saying about their experience working with me.

A huge thank you to Joshua Mahar Photography for helping us remember our wedding through film. Working with Joshua is a fantastic experience. Not only does he take the time to get to know you as a couple, but he works to showcase the characteristics that make you unique. When we received the photos, we were blown away. A combination of polaroid, film, and digital prints, show how talented a photographer Joshua really is. After spending months and months working to create a one of a kind event for us and our friends, I wanted a photographer that would help us take it all in. From bizarre moments to special dances and fun details, Joshua captured our Astoria Wedding exactly as we want to remember it. Thank you Joshua!

Professional, passionate and easy to work with- Joshua was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. He is not an apathetic fly on the wall, nor is he an in your face nuisance, Joshua flowed with the course of our wedding day and was still able to capture standard wedding poses and fantastic candids.
Joshua is not a point and shoot portrait maker from Sears but a true artist who went through all our photographs and individually touched up the best choices.
Most of all he was great to work with, makes you feel at ease when taking pictures and has the unique ability to “direct” his clients, not command them. He is a sincere photographer and not a salesman with a camera. All of my guests loved the fact that he positioned himself for great shots but was not intrusive on our ceremony or reception.
If you want a down-to-earth, skilled, professional and passionate photographer… trust me… Joshua Mahar is the way to go!

Within seconds of meeting Joshua and his wife at the Tacoma wedding show I knew I wanted him to shoot my wedding. Not only did his portfolio show his eye for detail and artistry, but it showed his passion for capturing the ultimate shots. My husband I are ecstatic with the photos that Joshua took at our wedding. They captured our true emotions, personalities and the feelings of the event. We couldn’t have asked for more. Each time I look at my pictures a huge smile breaks out. I have so much joy in recounting the events through Joshua’s lens. Joshua even went an extra step and tried out some Polaroid film which produced some amazing pictures for us. We now have timeless treasures in the photo’s Joshua took for us. We will forever cherish these and look back and remember the genuine emotions from the event that the pictures so vividly portray. I am excited for future events so Joshua can capture those memories for us too!

Joshua Mahar made our wedding come to life in so many ways. He happened to capture every extraordinary moment – including a panoramic shot of the view. I feel like I relive the day every time I go through the album.
Joshua is a gifted and talented artist that works from his gut and his love for photography. You can see his love for photography shine through in his photos, which are not only unique, but serve to capture the couple’s essence together and their individuality apart. And, he’s a blast to work with! He makes you feel like you can be yourself in front of the camera and relax knowing that you will look your best in his shots. My nieces in Texas are already talking about flying him down to photo their weddings, because you just can’t find talent like Joshua across the nation.
Initially Jesse and I were reluctant to do the first look away from the altar, due to tradition. After looking at Joshua’s first-look photos, I realized that it would have been a missed opportunity to not have taken these away from the altar. Joshua and his associate were able to capture every look and every special second of our first look – something that would have been impossible to do at the ceremony, around a crowd, and separated from each other by a long altar. Now, I can look at every second of our first look in photos and remember it seamlessly, just as it happened
Thank you, Joshua, for making our day so special and memorable! Keep in touch!
