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 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.

Thank goodness for Ari, we could not be happier with how our wedding & engagement photos came out! We were lucky enough to hear about Ari from a friend, and plan on recommending him to anyone who asks us as well. Along with our engagement photos, our wedding photos had very cool angles mixed with classic, the picture quality was phenomenal, and everyone who’s seen them has not stopped talking about how amazing they are. He was able to capture every moment of the day in such a flawless way and we're so glad that we can always go back to his gorgeous photos to remember our wedding day. Even though our wedding was across the country in Maine, Ari still agreed to come out. He’s truly committed to getting the best pictures, and clearly loves & enjoys what he does.We’re both appreciative of the work Ari did, and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you for everything, Ari!

If you are interested in having a photographer that can beautifully capture all the range of emotions that will be felt among you, your spouse, and all your family and friends, Ari is the wedding photographer for you!

My husband and I got married in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Kahala Hotel and Resort. Ari was so skilled at capturing the beauty of the island as a background to our special day. Minimal decorations were needed, with the beauty of the outdoor gazebo wedding overlooking the ocean being a great natural setting! But what made our wedding photos so special were the candid emotions and expressions he captured throughout the day-- from getting ready, to walking down the aisle, to the father-daughter dance where he caught the tears in my eyes as I embraced my dad tightly. The moments during my wedding day were timeless, and Ari captured them beautifully-- without ever interrupting or attempting to pose us while we living in the moment! I almost forgot he was there, yet he captured all the happy, joyous moments during the recepture.

He also ensured we got the most out of our wedding package with him, and took extra time after the reception to take beautiful outdoor p

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!

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. =)
