Hello, and thank you for stopping by the Stage One Productions website!

My name is John Thompson. I am the main photographer and the owner of Stage One Productions. I’m sure you will find the information you are looking for here on our website for the services we offer. If not, feel free to contact me and I will be glad to go over any information you may need.

A little bit about me….. I have been a photographer for most of his life. Growing up, I loved taking photos, always wanting to capture the best moments to look back on. This carried over into my high school years when I was always the guy with a camera close by. After high school I went on to study photography and hone my craft into what it is today. As I move forward in life as a photographer, I am always attempting to master the art of storytelling through my images. Hopefully, I have done just that.

I use all professional grade Canon and Fuji camera bodies and lenses. I also carry an entire back up camera setup ready to go in case of some unforeseen emergency. All of my cameras are digital format and I process all of the images myself as well as designing all of the custom wedding albums personally. I have been a graphic designer for over 18 years which obviously aids in designing the perfect custom album for you. Nothing is ever sent to outside companies to be completed. I do 100% of the designing and creative work myself. I leave nothing to outside hands when it comes to my work and your photos.

I have shot over 300 weddings around the country in the past 16 years. I love to shoot weddings, it is one of my passions. I love to get the shot that will make the bride and groom melt when they see it! I am a fun photographer with a great personality and always professional. You have my personal commitment to provide you with beautiful photos you will cherish for a lifetime!

After launching a successful photography business, I decided to expand my business and offer photo booths, DJ and other wedding and event services. We now offer over 15 different services for weddings and events! We have a great team of employees who are great at what they do. We look forward to helping you create a unforgettable day for your next event!

Once again, thanks for stopping by!
