Biographical History

The John Henry Weston family is a Utah family of photographers. The John Henry Weston family was founded in 1912 when John Henry Weston married Metta Schow. Photography was always a major interest to him. There are hundreds of photographs documenting family, community, and events beginning in the early 1900s and continuing throughout his life. He passed this passion on to his son John N. Weston, who also passed it on to his son, John Bradford Weston.
