I went through all the other reviews on here, and have to say, they are all on point! Ari does amazing work and he definitely goes above and beyond! His work is outstanding! For our engagement photo session, he drove all the way to Lake Tahoe and produced STUNNING pictures, despite the freezing cold weather! We asked to compensate his mileage and he just smiled at us and told us not to worry. From that moment, we knew Ari took his job seriously and was a hardworking, genuine guy.

Our wedding day pictures were just as amazing! Ari has a gift of capturing raw emotions beautifully. He even made crying look good! And I have a really ugly cry. Haha. We didn't have to worry about anything. Ari explained to us that as long as we trust him to capture all the moments, then all we needed to focus on was enjoying our day. And he was right! He delivered beautiful, natural looking pictures that told our wedding day story. When we first booked him, we couldn't afford a 2nd shooter but he brought one in anyway. When I asked him why, he simply told us that he wanted to ensure he captured all the moments from our day. He stayed much longer than he needed to and even gave us prints of his favorite pictures. This is a testimony to his character. He strives to produce excellent work, and then goes even beyond that! My husband and I were blown away!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ari to anyone. I would even recommend him to my friends who are photographers so they can learn a thing or two! :) Ari is a humble, genuine, hardworking guy who produces high quality work. Anyone who chooses Ari will not be disappointed. My husband and I were truly blessed to have worked with him!

Ari is the most above & beyond wedding photographer I have ever encountered.
My bf proposed to me in the most extravagant & fairytale way. On my bday, we went on a 3 hr horseback ride w/ a grp of other horseback riders. Among those in the group was Ari. I was told by the owner of the ranch that Ari was there to take photos during the ride and at the scenery along the way for their website. Every so often, I would look at Ari, who rode behind me and thought to myself "this poor guy, he's having such a rough time horseback riding with all those cameras and trying to snap photos" and this was his first time on horseback.
When we finally got to the top of the mountains, we all got off of our horses to take a break. It was then that my bf got down on one knee and proposed to me. After I said yes, it was then I heard all these "clicks" and Ari was there taking numerous pics of us. My bf then clued me in that he had hired Ari, to capture pictures of us thru out the whole day and during the proposal. When Ari gave us the files for the photos, I was absolutely amazed!! He is a genius at capturing the emotions of that event. And he has such a gifted eye for beauty.
When it came to choosing a photographer for our destination wedding, I absolutely knew we had to have Ari!
You see, I have been a bridesmaid for 6 weddings in the past, and I've come to realize what I do & do not in my own wedding. We were even willing to pay for Ari and his assistant's round trip airfare tickets & hotel accommodations for two nites to have him cover our wedding.
On our wedding day, Ari and his assistant, Sam, did not disappoint us. When we received our pictures, they made us smile, laugh, and cry. He captured each moment and the emotions involved so magnificently. With his unique creative eye, he made my camera shy husband & I look like movie stars!
Ari is everything you want in a wedding photographer & more. you can trust he will capture your special day.

As a photographer, I was extra picky about who would photograph my wedding. I didn't want anything cliche -- I wanted my wedding photos to reflect the way the day felt and to do so with an artistic touch. And I wanted a photographer I could really trust to capture the day without me having to think twice. Ari provided all of this and more. He is professional, courteous, and most importantly, has incredible talent for capturing moments in ways most photographers wouldn't see. I couldn't have been happier with the images from our wedding and I couldn't have been happier with the experience of working with Ari.

Ari Simphoukham Photography is simply the best! If you are looking for someone who is creative, professional, and super awesome than look no further! I'm not always the most comfortable having my photo taken but Ari makes me feel at ease with his easy going presence. Not only is he able to capture those great candid moments, he does so with an artistic style. This is something hard for me to explain but if you take a look at his website, you'll know what I mean. Finaly, taking photos isn't something Ari considers just a job. He really regards photography as his passion and it really shines through in his photos. =)

Ari was such a friendly and compatible person! We clicked from our previous engagement sessions which were so fun and loved the results... his keen eye for details and creative, photojournalistic perspective of playing with lighting and shadows! We knew he'd be wonderful for capturing our wedding day! He was so easy to get in touch with and very responsive in corresponding either by phone, email, or text. To prepare, he asked for the "Day Of" Timeline and what time hair and makeup was scheduled to plan his arrival. What a beautiful day to get married that Saturday! Ari came early to set up (how professional) and just like another bride mentioned, we didn't even notice him... really relaxing and assuring on a day with so much commotion! An unexpected event towards the end of the reception was when my husband and Ari surprised me with sparklers outside our venue (how flexible)! What a nice treat! The photo turnaround was faster than we expected... family and friends got to reminisce that fun and loving day over and over! Ari will definitely document and showcase your wedding day with professionalism and quality service!

Ari and my wife were in a pre-law fraternity together at UC Davis, so she already knew Ari as an amazing person and a gifted photographer. When we got engaged, our very next thought was "Do you think Ari will be our wedding photographer?" We were in love with Ari’s uniquely bold photojournalistic style and wanted someone who was flexible, easygoing, professional and fun - Ari is all of these things and more. We were so lucky to have him capture our July 2011 wedding at Sigmund Stern Grove in San Francisco. Not only did he tastefully snap all of the key wedding party and family photos, but he somehow managed to document every perfect candid moment of our unconventional wedding and reception like a photo ninja. Ari is a true artist – the way he works with space, light and emotion is almost dreamlike and unparalleled. Every time I look at our wedding photos, it is like reliving the best day of my life all over again. There are so many talented wedding photographers out there, but if you want photo magic, do yourself a favor and hire Ari. You will not be disappointed!

Call it love at first sight. The moment we saw Ari's blog, we already fell in love with his unique style and ability to capture those precious and raw moments at weddings. We loved the effects that he could do with lighting and how clear and detailed all his photos were. After our initial consultation with Ari, we knew he was the one for us - he had an ability to maintain the proper balance between professionalism and fun, and demonstrated his understanding of our needs and willingness to put our desires first.

We really enjoyed working with Ari as we were preparing for our wedding and on our wedding day. He was very prompt with all our correspondences (something that is very important to me), and he got our pictures and albums to us very soon after our wedding - within two months! We love looking at all our photos - we loved the backlight effects and creative use of angles and reflection. Ari's shots are vivid. The colors burst out of the page, and his timing captures the emotions at their peak. The lines are crisp and clean, and his pictures are almost better than being there in person. I don't think any photographer can match the sharpness of his capture - his work is best viewed in high-definition screens and high-resolution prints. He was also extremely discreet (we hardly noticed him or his assistants taking pictures throughout the night and were surprised when we saw that some of the pictures indicated that he had actually been standing right next to us). The church that we got married in didn't allow photographers to walk along the aisle during the ceremony, yet Ari was still able to make it work and still somehow managed to get a variety of pictures from different angles. I was a very emotional bride, and my parents were also very emotional, as I was their first daughter to get married. Ari was able to capture those emotions through his photos, and one of those photos even won an award. At our wedding, we also had various "surprise" performances at the end of our ceremony and at our reception, and he was able to shoot quickly and continuously capture some of the best moments of those dances.

We were very impressed at the quality of photos Ari was able to achieve. If you're looking for a photographer who is creative, fun, professional, and does high-quality work, then Ari is the photograher for you - thank you Ari for everything!

Ari went above and beyond for our wedding. He did not simply take pictures of friends and family posing, during the event. He captured that day in our lives. His pictures told the story of our wedding day, from beginning to end. We were very pleased with the quality of his work and professionalism. Ari did an excellent job!
