For our wedding, my husband I wanted a photographer that was artistic and authentic. When we saw Ari's work, we knew his journalistic style and superb photography skills would fit bests to our style and wedding.

Moreover, Ari is dependable, personable, and professional. We had had engagement shoot scheduled just days after his first baby was born. He still worked with our schedule and took the most amazing photos. We used those photos for our wedding stationary and it was a big hit!

Once, we received our wedding photos, my husband and I were in great awe of Ari's ability to capture personal moments. From our photos, you can actually feel the love from every angle and light. It brought us back to the happiest day of our lives. They were mirrors of our memories brought to life. Ari is not just a photographer. He is an artist.

Ari was wonderful and a pleasure to work with! He’s very laid-back and really fun. He’s very prompt with his responses whenever I’ve contacted him, which is awesome.

Prior to hiring him as our photographer, my husband and I looked through his work and were amazed at the pictures he’d taken for other weddings and events. We got to know him better through a Skype interview (which was really cool of him, by the way!). After all was said and done, we decided to hire him. We couldn’t have been happier.

We had Ari for two different photography sessions: our engagement photo session and our wedding day. The photos he took at both exceeded our expectations. At both sessions, he was so much fun to work with. He made us and our family and friends feel very comfortable and everything was so natural. At our wedding, he was also very stealthy! He took some amazing pictures without us even knowing he was there. When taking pictures at both sessions, he was able to use the environment around us to come up with the most creative, beautiful, and awe-inspiring pictures you will ever see. He was also able to capture all those raw, candid moments in such a beautiful way.

Overall, Ari was truly amazing. He’s a great guy to work with. He’s professional, while at the same time being fun. He has such a passion for pictures that the pictures he takes will truly wow you. I highly recommend Ari. Let him do his thing and you will not be disappointed.

Ari absolutely blew us away. The final product is absolutely astonishing (lots of "I have never seen wedding such beautiful wedding photos!), but Ari really shines on the day of. In the best way possible- I never thought about him. Working with him through our engagement session and getting to know him, I knew he was going to get every single shot. His energy and passion really came through on our wedding day. I never once had to worry "This is a great moment, I hope Ari gets this shot!" because he, sometimes hilariously, just pops up and is there to capture the moment in his own eye.

From our first interaction we knew Ari was going to right for us. We wanted someone who cared about us, and was going to capture our relationship in photos. Ari was warm and endlessly excited about getting to know my wife and I. We felt like he was as invested in the process as we were- and was open and flexible to make us feel infinitely comfortable and confident.

More than any other person we worked in our wedding, I would recommend Ari!

If we could rate Ari Simphoukham Photography with more than five stars, we would.

We booked Ari for our engagement photo shoot as well as for our wedding because of his vision of capturing "moments" as opposed to focusing on posed/staged frames. His photos exude raw emotions that makes one feel as if they are actually there, living in the moment themselves.

One of the best things about Ari is that he captured moments from our wedding day that we did not even know happened! As a bride and groom caught in the midst of a busy wedding day program, we were not able to physically be there with our guests for every moment that transpired. When we received our photos, we were thrilled to find that Ari captured so many candid moments of our guests! We were able to relive not only our own emotions from our wedding day, but the laughter, tears and happiness of our guests as well.

We also chose to work with Ari because of his welcoming and down to earth personality. Ari is such a laid back and humble guy who always made us feel comfortable whether it was in person, through texts, calls or emails. Ari was very responsive whenever we needed him, and was the easiest vendor we worked with throughout our entire wedding planning process.

Ari far exceeded our expectations for both our engagement photo shoot as well as the documentation of our wedding day, and we would highly recommend him to any couple who is looking for photos that will give them memories to last a lifetime.

Ari did an incredibly beautiful job capturing portraits and an amazing array of candid moments throughout our wedding day! His photojournalistic style caught our eye when looking for photographers, and he totally delivered.

Ari is an incredibly warm and friendly person, and totally put us at ease. He is incredibly fast to respond thoughtfully to any questions, which I appreciate to no end. We were confident photography was the last detail of the day we'd have to worry about.

My husband and I had never worked with a photographer until our wedding, and are generally pretty camera shy. Ari did a seemingly effortless job giving us direction/going un-noticed as needed.

After the wedding, he also fast-tracked us our family portraits so we could print them out and bring to my grandma overseas. Major kudos for that.

We are so fortunate we had his skill and creativity to capture all these special moments that we can now share with all the people we love. We 100% recommend Ari!

Better than anything I could ever imagine!

My husband and I renewed our vows in Feb 2016 and looked to Ari to help capture the moments we didn't get a chance to have when my husband and I first married. The day of our wedding felt a little crazy with everything going on. However, while the wedding party was so focused on getting ready and making sure everything was going well, Ari was hard at work capturing the moments we never thought we would see. Ari's professionalism and passion for photography really shined through in his work. He was focused throughout the day, ensuring he was able to capture the perfect photographs for us.

Based on our discussion and browsing through his galleries, we expected Ari to produce beautiful portraits with a focus on candid moments. Despite knowing we would receive a wonderful product, we were completely blown away by the perfect beauty of what Ari captured! We have received so many compliments about our portraits and I find that the hardest thing to do during this process is narrowing down which prints to place on the walls!!!!

As a summary ... Ari was amazing, went out of the way to ensure he captured the perfect moments, and filled our heart and lives with perfect memories!

Ari was awesome!! We love our pictures. We were looking for a photographer that would capture our special day and do it in an artistic way. I love how creative he was with his shot selection. We wanted someone who not only took great pictures but took pictures that were pieces of art. Pictures that we would be proud to hang on our wall. He was exactly what we were looking for.

Ari is an absolutely amazing photographer! He was able to capture special moments throughout the whole day/night and created very artistic photos. The day was cloudy and it made for some awesome pictures that everyone keeps talking about! My husband hates taking pictures and Ari made it as painless as possible for him while still making sure I got all of the photos I wanted and then some! I would (and will!) definitely recommend him for any future bride-to-be's out there, you will NOT be disappointed. He is worth every single penny!! He was also able to get photos back to me very fast, which was such a pleasant surprise. I haven't stopped looking at all of my photos and can't wait to make photo albums, picture frames, scrapbooks, etc. I want to cover my house in our wedding photos! Thank you Ari for letting me relive my wedding over and over again!!

I did a lot of research for my wedding photographer. Wedding pictures are so important to me and I am very picky about the style of photography. After hours and hours of research and interviews with photographers, we decided to hire Ari and we are so happy we did!! We absolutely LOVE our wedding photos!!! Ari is super talented. I love photojournalism in general, but among photo-journalists, you will find that he is one of the best. Our wedding was in Santa Monica and there are numerous wedding photographers/photojournalists in the LA area but we just knew that we want Ari to shoot our wedding. When we first talked to Ari via Skype, we instantly felt comfortable. Throughout the conversations, you could just tell that he is so kind and warm, and you don't feel like he's trying to "sell you". A big plus in my eyes. When we got our pictures back, I was tearing up to see how amazing those photos turned out to be. Nothing could replace photos that beautifully captured your special moments. Ari listens to what's important to you and he will deliver pictures beyond what you could imagine! We highly recommend Ari and would be delighted to answer any questions you have about our experience with him.
