The photographs are the most illuminating of my career. Superb work.
Harry Crews, Author

John,
I am soooo impressed with the way you capture the spirit and the beauty that lies within.
Thank you, Cheryl

John,
The photos that were my faves are attached. Thank you again for the fantastic work that you did for me. Although as a professional you are paid for what you do, the creativity, enthusiasm, and vision that you bring to your job is a rare commodity. In a commercially successful artist, experience and enthusiasm are an unusual combination! As a subject and customer, I felt that my image was treated kindly but analytically, which is a difficult balance. Your photos are one-of-a-kind, and they will bring a lot of happiness to my family, friends, and to me. I could not be more satisfied.
Captain Sarah Pierce, U.S. Army
A wonderful exercise into the depth of the human spirit—and holding on to each passing moment. Jason H.
Your work is beautiful! Most wedding photos are well, just that. Not yours. I see so much spirit, activity, and emotion. After looking in the picture for a moment I realize, oh yeah she’s wearing a wedding dress. It’s a wedding photo! I actually take a moment to ‘get’ in the picture instead of quickly scrolling through the hundreds of pictures like I have been doing the past few weeks. I am just fascinated with your work. Your photographs are art and that is rare.
Debbie Cagle

“It is apparent the John Zeuli has an immediate connection and respect for his subjects whom he respectfully honors in powerful, light-filled photographs.  The visceral and captivating impact upon the viewer is undeniable.  In judging his entries for a recent competition it was difficult for me to select the final image as all of his entries were so strong.  His professionalism is of the highest level.”

          Renee Phillips, Director of Manhattan Arts International, in response to one of my images being selected in the Best of Photography category.

Good Morning, John,
Just a word about how lovely and special your photographs are from Patrick and Cathy’s wedding. Everyone in my family and all our friends are so pleased to see how well you captured the moments. They are so beautiful and full of personality. Thank you for making their day live on.
Thanks, Veva Shuman

The photographs are wonderful. I’m going to use them for my speaking engagements with the United Nations.
Sister Jose Hobday

John,
Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures taken at the reunion weekend! I love them all, John you are soooo talented! You have a way of capturing personalities and expression with such creative strength. I especially cherish the touching picture of Karen with her cane.
Thanks again, Marni

The photo album arrived today, John, and both Susan and I are very fond of the photographs. I think it was an inspired idea to take pictures of the two of us.
Keep in touch, Peter Straub, Author
John, A most belated “thank you” for the wonderful family pictures you took in Minnesota. The quality and artistic “feeling” of them was truly exceptional.
Fred Melius
Mr. Zeuli,
I have seen your work at the Bread and Butter Café, as well as the Angel House on Wilmington and I enjoy your photos very much. You have the ability to capture the extraordinariness in ordinary people and the ordinariness in extraordinary people. What a stunning talent.
Sarah
Zeuli certainly displays a knack for capturing the essence of the subject, both in his artistic and commercial portrait work.
Chris Humpage, Savannah Morning News

We were very happy to have you here, and hope to see you again soon. You and your staff did an admirable job of slipping around the crowd in an almost transparent fashion.
Cheers, Tony Pizzo, Director Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum

Hi John! Loved the image of Andrew Vachss. Wow, your work is most impressive!
Jessica Hines, Photographer
Hi John,
Thanks again. People are asking “How did he do that?” Your work is wonderful.
Michelle
Hello John,
I just wanted to tell you that I saw your exhibit at the Starfish Café, and I saw some of your work at the Angel House a few weeks ago and have wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. It is a lovely series and I really liked how you captured the gestures and expressions of each uniquely different individual and focused on their eyes. Each image draws you in and I felt a sense of respect and admiration for each individual portrayed. I am a photographer too so I notice all the details of course. Communicating a moment or emotion in a portrait, and evoking a response from the viewer is something that I strive for as well. Again, it was very moving and I thought it was beautiful.
Take Care and Best Wishes, Margie Greer, Photographer
John your collection is breathtaking! I am honored that you would choose my photograph for your video and it was an honor to have you take my photographs! You are truly an artist and I will cherish them always!!!
Jenna Streeter

Got the pictures today and they turned out better than I could have dreamed! If you ever need a reference (doesn’t look like you need anymore though) feel free to give our names. Again, thank you so much for taking such amazing photographs!

Thank you so much for your amazing work with our maternity shoot. I was surprised to see just how many truly amazing pictures came from just one shoot! They really captured the beauty and art of pregnancy, just as I had hoped for! I was so comfortable working with you and your assistant.

Thanks again.

Thanks again for everything, John. You really made the day so special. We love the pictures—you did such an awesome job.
Lindsey Redd
My wife had cancer several years past and we both handle it one day at a time at present. The ups and downs shown in the eyes those captured says it all. We played the video for the 3rd time and when it finished we looked at each other,small kiss and then a smile.....That was all that was needed..PC was shutdown for the day. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Don and Carole (wife of 53 years)
John,
I wanted to compliment you on your services last night. You were easy going, professional, patient and fun! Everyone loves seeing their picture on the “Social” page of Savannah Magazine. I visited your website and just fell in love with your work. You are a natural. Thanks for all your hard work.
Sincerely, Tamara Price

John,
I learned more from your training than from my entire photography curriculum in college. It has changed the way I see the world!
Thank you! Erin Morris

Dear John,
Mark and I cannot begin to express our gratitude for your photography services at our wedding! We had a lifetime of emotions built up and you managed to capture each one so tenderly and effortlessly. Your lens sang our praises and we will forever cherish such memories! We can assure you this is just the beginning of our photographic journey together. Until our next encounter, wishing you much success in your future engagements!
Most fondly, Kathleen and Mark Bemis
Hi John!

Dear John,
Thank you so very much for the fantastic photos in Savannah.  They turned out great and you put us completely at ease during the shoot.  The quality of the photos is head and shoulders above the other photographer we had taken several days later in another state.  We couldn’t be happier and we wanted to express our sincere thanks for that special moment in our lives. 
Meghan & Eric

Cassandra M.  Photographer

I’ve been searching for a photographer for around two months now.  Your images were the first and only ones that really captured my attention and imagination.  Your work is stunning!  I love how each picture feels real and how the images are compelling.  People look beautiful because they look real.  I’ve not seen anything like it anywhere else. 
Melissa


Dear John,
How can you make me look so good!?!  I was amazed at the pictures.  I want you to be my “official photographer.” 
Regards, Diane Lesko, PhD.  Executive Director, Telfair Museum of Art

I have looked through the pictures on your website and I am so…impressed, moved, stricken by your ability to capture the feeling of the person in a picture.  Just beautiful…I would be flattered to work with you anytime. 
Lindsay Ashman


Dear Sir,
I used Yahoo yellow pages to find your website, and lost my breath when I saw your pictures.  As a special education teacher, I see such beauty in all children’s smiles, and I was literally moved to tears to see the image you use as the primary one on your home page!  I didn’t look at a single other listing when I saw your work. 
Best regards, Nicole Rinehart—Lake Oswego, OR

Dear John and Ginny,
Thank you for the great afternoon at the Outer Banks.  We’re finally back from all our travels and book touring and have had a chance to sit down and take a look at the wonderful collection of photos you sent.  Wow—you are great!  We are very very pleased.  We also took a look at the ones you used on the website—that looks great too.  THANKS!!  Kristine Card

Hi,
I came across your website and fell in love with your photographs.  If you don’t mind my asking I am curious to know how you got to photograph people with so many accomplishments and awards.  My personal favorites are the ones of Harry Crews as well as the mother and child pages.  Also, your wedding shots are brilliant! 
Sincerely,
Brittany, Photography Student

We have shared the photocards with our children and have received many compliments.  Thanks, again for what you have done for us. 
Sincerely, Jessie and Robert DeLoach

Hey John, I just have to tell you; you were awesome!!!!  As you could probably tell, everyone had an incredible time. 
Thanks, Jill Stockton

Dear John,
Your work which I viewed on your website is amazing.  Your work moves me.  I want to know where you learned and how long have you been taking pictures?  You have captured the true spirit of these people, that’s amazing. 
Thank you, Gail Tyson

Dear John,
Thanks for your patience and understanding during the scholarship recipients photo shoot.  You and your assistant greatly helped with the organization of the students.  Also thanks to your wonderful photography skills, the ad was successful. 
Karen W. Cotton

John,
The pictures are awesome!  Some sweet, some profound, some touching and some that I will look at in the future.  I’m sure they will bring feelings I’ve never experienced before.  The B/W makes them almost surreal.  Superbly done, John!  
Edmund V.

Dear John—
Thank you so much for making our wedding day even more memorable.  We absolutely love the photos and I can’t tell you enough how happy I am to have met and worked with you.  Your work is amazing and Adrian and I will certainly want to work with you again in the future (…children’s portraits) maybe distant future, haha. 
Take care, Elisa and Adrian

The pictures look great…and that portrait of me and Kristine—best picture we’ve ever had together. 
Orson Scott Card, Author

Mr. Zeuli,

I see your photographs on display every day in the hallway at Memorial University Medical Center and look forward to viewing them over and over again. Some days I linger past them and some days I am flying past them but in either instance they steal my thoughts. On a hectic or even profoundly sad day (not uncommon in the world of Critical Care that I live in) as I rush past your thought-stealing faces are consistently able to refocus and reset my thoughts to how amazing the world is.
They say to me - there has always been and will always be something horrible to get over but something great to look forward to and your images are provocative in that manner. Amazing.

I realized today is the day I needed to find your site and tell you how absolutely in love I am with your work. They really are extraordinary.

Count me as a fan,
Anne

I just wanted to say that ALL of the photos were just simply amazing! I have gotten so very many notes and comment s all week about them. and of course you as well! Thank you John so much!!!! Our wedding will always be so very special, each moment captured by you!

John,

Excuse the lateness of this email......I just saw the wedding photos "up close and personal" last week and they were fabulous!!! Thank you so much for the beautiful photography! I just wanted to let you know how very pleased I was with the photos!!

Thanks again,
Madge Culbreth

John,

We are so pleased with EVERY single photo!!! Thank you so much for capturing our day in such a special way! You're photography is amazing and you and Erin were such a joy to work with! We appreciate it so much!

Lesley and Radly

I am friends with Kevin and Michelle and am so glad she shared Fluency of the Heart with me. I love the photos and the words you said just made them more incredible I was so touched and I cried through the entire thing.
Thanks for what you do. I think every school in Chatham County should require all of the teachers to see this!
Sincerely,
Andrea Lewis

MsMovinon has made a comment via YouTUBE on Fluency Of The Heart by John Zeuli Photography:

As a mom I was moved by the beauty you found in each and every photo, as a person with a special ed background I am grateful and as an adult with special needs there just are no words to describe the feeling I get every time I watch it. Let the tears of joy flow!!!!

 

DawnDiamond1 has made a comment via YouTUBE on The Female As Spiritual Catalyst by John Zeuli Photography:

Beautiful creation! The music was an integral and empowering interweaving...... sound as a key to Inner Depths. I *felt* the movement of the tonal vibrations as they related to Spirit. The visuals were sharp, clean and simple--- a true unification of Outer and Inner with a blending of the Female and Male Aspects. This clip was a Joy. Thank You.

cassandramcd has made a comment via YouTUBE on Fluency Of The Heart by John Zeuli Photography:

WOW John...
your narration is so moving, it almost brought me to tears. Amazing photography as always. Keep inspiring and keep setting the bar high for the rest of us. Your work has such emotion, as I've stated before. You truly have a gift of capturing a person's soul in a photo. Best to you always. . .

“If I could give one vendor of mine an “extra star, John would be the one. Incredibly professional, creative, and helpful from day one of contacting him. We had the benefit of a very talented team of photographers to catch all the special moments. John spoke with me thoroughly before the big day to discuss plans and my needs, and had some great impromptu ideas the day of the wedding, as well. Bonus: Just ONE week after we returned from our honeymoon, we received a full set of prints, our photos CD’s, photos online to view, and a photo release form giving us the right to get reprints anywhere. (For a creative bride I can’t imagine having it any other way!) All my family and friends that view John’s photos goes on and on about how beautiful they are.”

Thank you! Your husband is an amazing photographer! We are thankful that he was introduced to us and have received raving comments about his work.

Hello John:

I just viewed your "The Female as Spiritual Catalyst" slideshow on Youtube.
True, great work that presents many facts that we are in great peril of
ignoring..

Thank you for the work,

John, I just saw Fluency of the Heart and wanted to comment on your tremendous talent. You are a very gifted photographer and I think your background enables you to shoot on a level that few possess. With appreciation,

Nina Shields, Photographer

Lynnmy1 has made a comment via YouTUBE on The Female As Spiritual Catalyst by John Zeuli Photography:

John, The new exhibit is truly amazing. You captured the essence of the Female Catalyst as she has and will always be the true giver of life, through her all evolve. Her energy, soul, and strength is shared through her mere touch! Wonderful!

erinkmorris has made a comment via YouTUBE on The Fluency of the Heart by John Zeuli Photography:

What a wonderful and meaningful work, John! Your intuition about the Heart communication of people with disabilities is brilliant. There is such beauty in the faces of Fluency here. Great work! EM

Got the photos.  Beautiful.  I’d like to propose to my publishers that they use one of your photos for my new book. 
Dean Radin, Author

Dear John, Your photos do reflect the Spirit within the person.  Wow!  I am so thankful to be in this industry and know such a unique photographer. 
Bianca Raub, The Olde Pink House

John, please forgive my delay in thanking you properly for the outstanding photos of the Blake Bunch. We were all amazed at your artistic talent. Ginger surprised Jim and me with numerous framed pix of the grandchildren -- absolutely the best gift of all! You had captured them in so many adorable ways that seemed to speak of each of their personalities...especially
Elijah's!

I am in love with your style.  It is so original and different.   
Chastity Dellinger

Thanks, too, for the pictures of Patti. The one with the slight smile is my favorite. It's sitting on a table in my bedroom and I talk to her every morning. I think it's beautiful, and may very well be your best work.  Dealing with Patti's loss has been much harder than I expected. There's a huge empty place in my life, yet the sensitive pictures you made have been an enormous help. You captured her soul. Like I said, I look at her little smile every day and an able to talk to her. She looks like she's listening.

There are really no words to express the gratitude each of us feels for the time, patience, and gift of talent you shared with us. Like it or not, you're part of our family now.  Bless you! 

Judi Blake

I hope you are doing well.  I’m e-mailing because I am yet again reminded of what a wonderful photographer you are.  I was viewing pictures from a wedding I attended recently and there were so few pictures and the quality just wasn’t there.  At our wedding you managed to capture every special moment.  I cannot thank you enough and so far as investments go the one we made with you is at the top of the list.
Lindsay Redd Fruchtl

John:  I just finished going through all the photos.  They are absolutely breathtaking!!!  I love them so much.  How can I ever thank you enough for all the hard work and for bringing me to life through your lens.  They are so beautiful and I will cherish them always! 
Thank you, John Lynn Meyers

I'm thankful for John's art... use of light, shades of grey, color, and subjects that emote through it all. Each photo tells?a story. Beautiful work!  
Krik Phillips

I always say that there are a lot of people that can take pictures, but only a true master can use their camera to evoke such emotion. Only a true master can take a photograph with such passion that someone will still remember the image years later. This is the kind of master photographer that is "John Zeuli". He is an INSPIRATION to other photographers.
 Cassandra M.  Photographer

John's photos are personal, expressive, and exquisitely beautiful forms of art. He is able to capture the most special moments in time, ones that are often missed or overlooked in our very busy lives or during a function. It is an honor to know and have worked with Mr. Zeuli, thank you for making me look? so beautiful!!  
Lynn Meyers

Mr. Zeuli—Thank you for the copies of your photos.  You did things just as you promised you would, and I respect you for being a man of your word.  Stay Strong! 

Zeuli…is a rare portraitist who allows his subject to radiate joy.
