Best Photographer Ever!
John and his team are the best in Philadelphia. They truly helped to make our wedding the special day it was meant to be.Sent on 10/29/2019
John and his team did all of the little things right. They were on time, very respectful and fun, and brought a great attitude throughout they day that only enhanced our experience. John and his team made myself, husband, bridal party, parents, and guests all feel comfortable during our formal pictures and Black and White fashion set. The Black and White fashion set photos are absolutely amazing and so fun to see all of our guests having fun and being creative with this set!
Most importantly, John kept us on schedule throughout the day. Before our wedding day, John and I spoke multiple times about the timing for the wedding and he planned out our day perfectly to include all the photos and different locations I wanted. This may not sound important, but with so many moving pieces and people, it is easy to fall behind schedule. John, however, kept us true to the plan we set in place, which allowed us to get to our cocktail reception early and enjoy that time with our guests. In addition, John was super flexible and willing to work with us, even when made I made a timing mistake. The mistake I made caused us to move up our timeline an hour, which meant John had to set his equipment up at our reception venue the night before the wedding. He easily could've said no, but instead he went out of his way to make sure it was all in place for our wedding day.
Outside of the little things, the photos are beyond what we imagined they would be. We obviously had scoped out John's work before hiring him, but to see how he captures you and your spouse is something so special and an amazing skill he has. We absolutely love the photos. In addition to John knowing exactly how to capture you and your spouse and getting the angles just right, he also edits each photo he gives you. John gave us around 1500 photos from our wedding day and absolutely all of them are flawless!
John also knows Philadelphia like the back of his hand and mapped out our photo locations before hand. This way we were able to utilize multiple spaces in Philadelphia for scenery and backdrops. John and his team made us feel comfortable posing and made it easy for us to have fun doing it. In our formal shots with our bridal party, especially, you can see everyone having fun and truly enjoying themselves.
Overall, John and his team will provide you with great service, great photos, and a great time. We cannot recommend him enough and are so grateful for the work that they did on our special day. When we look at our photos, we are reliving all the special moments again and this is all thanks to John!

John was the best photographer my husband and I could ask for. He was cool, down to earth and incredibly knowledgeable. We had to reschedule our wedding 3 times due to Covid and John worked with us the whole time. All of our bridal party had so much fun taking photos with John and his colleague Stewart. They even made sure to take my husband and I away from the reception to get some beautiful night time photos on the beach. Thank you so much John and Stewart!Sent on 09/14/2020

Highly recommend for engagement, boudoir, and wedding photography!
My husband and I can't say enough positive things about John and his team. We found out about him at our friend's wedding, and absolutely adored the B&W photo session he provides for all guests - AMAZING QUALITY!! We weren't even engaged at that time and had decided we needed to have him for our future wedding. Luckily, about a year later we were able to! Engagement shoot was fun and lighthearted. I added on a boudoir shoot for a surprise for my husband on our wedding day - John was very comfortable to work with. Wedding day was timely, professional, and FUN. He gladly incorporated some quirks we wanted to add in (panda/bear heads, anyone?) and made the process seamless. I knew this was one area of the wedding I didn't have to stress over at all. 5 stars, would highly recommend.Sent on 10/17/2019
Team of John Barone Photography
John began his photography career in 2000, shooting for publications like Philadelphia Magazine and Philadelphia Style, editorial clients like The Red Cross, commercial fashion clients like Urban Outfitters, and several advertising agencies. He casually began taking on weddings in 2006 and it eventually became the main focus of the business. His style merges his fashion editorial roots with thraditional wedding imagery.
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.
Cara met John while the two worked in the photo studio at Urban Outfitters. John generally seeks out 2nd shooters with a strong backgrund in fashion. Cara was the perfect fit, and jumed on board. She has the biggest heart and an amazing eye.
John is one of our absolute favorite photographers in the area and has been for quite some time. He's a true pro who has his own style. We've literally seen him climb into a lake to get the perfect shot, and here's the proof! https://vimeo.com/217551022
We have been working with John for several years now, and in addition to working extrmely well with our video teams on location at weddings, John's work is beautiful, He even photographed my son's wedding! Absolutely beautiful pictures!!
I had the pleasure of working with John on a gorgeous wedding at the Cairnwood Estate. Upon meeting John you immediately feel at ease! His amazing talent allows him to capture the beauty of the day and the love between the bride and groom. The "photo booth" that he provides is a MUST for any reception as your guests will love being a part of impromptu photo shoots during the evening. I can't say enough about John and his work! His pictures aren't just photos they are a work of art!
