Bottom line? Book. Barone.
Where do I even begin? He is both a gentleman AND a scholar. In all seriousness, I met John a few years prior to our wedding during a boudoir shoot for my sister and I. (Now if someone can make you feel completely comfortable the first time they meet you AND during a boudoir shoot I feel like that’s saying something…) My sister used John for her engagement/announcement and wedding photos; so as soon as I got engaged I booked John! He was the first vendor I booked and literally planned the entire wedding around HIS availability.Sent on 10/17/2018
John arrived at the perfect time without any issue, and when fate threw a curveball (ie the world’s smallest “bus” aka a VAN) and the wedding party needed to figure out how to get to the venue for the first look/group shots he also selflessly offered to play role of chauffeur! (This is definitely not a part of the package, I just feel like it speaks to who he is as a person.) John allows you to be yourselves, for my husband and I that meant we didn’t have to do any of the overly gross, staged, lovey-dovey pictures. He also suggests lots of cool options; some of our best pictures were taken with him PERCHED IN A TREE taking aerial shots of the wedding party laying on the ground. Don’t be afraid to do what he suggests, you won’t be sorry that you did!
My guests loved how John and his assistant were involved in all the action, which allowed him to get some of the most memorable pictures. My guests also enjoyed the B&W photobooth he does towards the end of the evening. Some honorable mentions from the B&W session include hand stands, pictures with random plastic ponies?, and many family/couples/group shots. PS, you get alllll of the pictures on a flash drive that comes in the cutest darn packaging.
Bottom line: Book. Barone. Since my wedding at least FOUR of my friends have booked him; I’m sure more will once they get engaged.

We had a great experience with John! He was very easy to work with. I was a little nervous about getting my picture taken all day, but he actually made it fun and pretty effortless. He takes a lot of pride in what he does, and it shows in his work and professionalism. I’m so glad we went with him. Highly recommend!Sent on 07/17/2019

We had the most amazing day, and a huge part was because of our amazing photographer! John Barone and his team were so on there game the whole day - everything went seamlessly. They were with us until the VERY END, and captured all of the amazing moments. We are so grateful.... Above all else; they were also FUN. On such an intensely emotional day it's great to laugh and feel comfortable with your vendors, and we really had the best time. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO EVERYONE.Sent on 06/15/2019
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!
