Book with John!

Do yourself a favor and book with John!!! My husband and I could not be happier that we chose John to photograph our wedding after initially talking to several photographers. From day one John was upfront and transparent about his end to end process: day of expectations, timelines, editing techniques, his style, etc. Leading up to our wedding John was extremely easy and quick to communicate with, always sending reminders and answering any questions/concerns almost immediately and at length to ensure we had a clear understanding. He is so down to earth, organized, and very reachable :)

On our wedding day John expertly captured the intimacy, love, playfulness, and raw emotion of the day. He had a clear plan of action, especially with group shots and creatively worked with the sunlight to incorporate beautiful natural lighting in our photos. It is impossible to even choose favorites! John’s professionalism and industry experience clearly shone through on our day. He made everyone feel comfortable and helped make the day so lighthearted and fun. For each part of the day he explained his thought process, what he was going to capture, and the timing. He kept the photos moving without rushing it and showed us some quick preview shots on his camera throughout the day. There was no sense of awkward camera shyness as John cooly puts you at ease. He will do anything to get ‘the shot’. We truly did not have to worry about anything photo-wise. John’s crew is also wonderful to work with! Zero stress/worries at all.

John’s editing is timeless and classic - we know these photos will be just as beautiful 30 years down the road. He is not someone who slaps a filter or trendy editing on pictures. It is clear he is a seasoned vet and absolute rockstar. The guests also loved the black and white photo set he provides with his package. I cannot recommend John enough - get on his schedule ASAP as he fills up fast and you will not be disappointed!!!!

A Truly Magical Photo Experience

My husband and I got married in November ‘22 and we knew we wanted our photos to be high quality, professional, and timeless. We decided to go with John Barone after experiencing his work at my sisters wedding as well the year before. John exceeded our expectations ten fold, and our photo gallery from our wedding is spectacular!!!

Along the way, John was communicative, knowledgeable, and really made us feel like family! He had great advice, especially we decided to go with his suggestion of a first look, due to light concerns, and it was the best decision! John and his staff were organized the day of, and came prepared with ideas for shot locations around the venue. The whole day was perfect!!

The photos afterwards were magical, and can only be described as perfection! Some even looked like paintings, which my husband and I loved! The only thing we didn’t like…was how HARD he made it to choose photos for our album since they are all amazing! We are obsessed, go with John Barone, there’s literally no one else that can compare!

Amazing photos!

I had an amazing experience working with John and his team. John has taken wedding photos for family friends and we knew we had to work with him as well. He is very communicative and absolutely views his job through an artist lens. The photos he took were incredible with amazing quality and natural look. We are so happy we worked with John. Highly recommend!

Associate Photographer

Anthony joined us back in 2015. His photo background centered around live music events but he was eager to start capturing weddings. After a few years, Anthony quickly rose to the top of our photographers and now leads a team of his own. If he's not shooting for us, he's probably hanging with his dog Arlo.
