I truly cannot say enough about John Arcara and his team. From our engagement shoot to our same day edit, they have been nothing short of amazing. John makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. He has a way of making you forget that you are posing in pictures and you end up just having so much fun! The whole crew is professional and so very talented. They even had our pictures from earlier in the day up during the reception! Everyone was so impressed with their work. They managed to capture our personalities and our happiness in every shot. I can't stop watching our videos and looking at our pictures. There is no reason to look for any other crew, John Arcara is who you want with you on your special day.

My older brother actually recommended John. I made an appointment b/c my brother wouldn’t stop nagging me about meeting with him, however, I was completely convinced my brothers rec. would not be taken (we are 2 very different people). My mother, fiancé and I went and met John at his studio. From the moment we walked in, I was blown away. John is FULL of personality, we laughed the entire appointment. He listened to what we wanted, showed us samples, and was not pushy whatsoever. After meeting with 2 other photogs. in the area, let’s just say no one compared to John’s personality or high quality album samples and we booked him. I did have to swallow some pride when I told my older brother...
John did our engagement photos - The photos were beautiful and John made us feel comfortable / like rock stars the entire time (even though engagement photos are completely awkward to take). We got the photos back within two weeks and used them for both the save the date and the guest book at our wedding.
The week before the wedding John called me to go over everything and then sent all of my vendors an email with the timeline. My other vendors commented on how great it was and how that very few (if any) photographers are as organized as John. That made me feel confident our day would go smoothly (and it did!)
Lastly, at the wedding John went above and beyond. He has an ability to make people laugh and then is able to capture the genuine joy. He held my dress when my tipsy bridesmaids were incapable. He surprised us at the wedding with a sneak peak of the photos he’d taken that day (which everyone at the reception LOVED). Within 3 days of the wedding he’d posted over 30 BEAUTIFUL photos on Facebook. I can go on and on and on and on about all of the things John did to go above and beyond for us but this review would be a book. My husband and I are so grateful and can’t wait to see the rest of the photos as well as the video! Thank you John, Rich, and Lasha!

Words can't express how thankful my husband and I are that we found John Arcara Photography for our special day. John made the process from the day of our first meeting throughout our entire wedding day SO easy, we did not have to worry about a thing. John did our engagement photos as well which turned out amazing, we used them for Save the Dates. Lovina, John's wife, did my boudoir session and created a "Sexy Little Bride" album that I gave my husband on the day of the wedding. She made me feel SO comfortable taking photos which I am not used to and they turned out amazing. John gave us a wedding timeline, I was asking him what time everything needed to be done, and he did not cease to amaze me with his knowledge. With any question we had, we received such a timely response and truly valued the information we were provided. The day of, John made us both feel at ease on a day that can be so overwhelming. Our Same Day Edit video captured SO much of our day, our guests were in tears watching it at the end of the night. Our photos from the day captured every detail, we could not have asked for more. He was more than a photographer/videographer and we are forever thankful! I would recommend John to anyone, anytime for any event.

The moment John and his team arrived the morning of my wedding, most of my nerves completely disappeared. They are true professionals and know exactly how to make a bride feel calm, beautiful and special. John managed to capture my husband and me truly as ourselves. Our photo shoot together and with our bridal party was so much fun we almost forgot about the February weather! John isn't afraid to take risks and go above and beyond to capture the perfect shots and I am so grateful to be able to look back on our pictures as a genuine reminder of how beautiful the day was. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who wants the best of the best for one of the most important days of their lives.

Photos are incredibly important to me, so I knew I wanted to make sure our day was captured by someone who really made us feel comfortable. We knew once we walked into the studio that this was the group of people that we wanted to work with on our special day. Scott Bush was our photographer and he was incredible to work with!! He made us both feel instantly at ease and kept everything flowing so nicely on the day of the event. He was so laid back and organized and it really made everyone feel so calm and relaxed. He constantly made us feel special and had the best ideas for how to capture the moment. We really enjoyed working with him and cannot wait to see how our images turned out!! Our families were also raving about how great Scott was and how much they are looking forward to seeing the pictures as well! We would choose him again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to anyone else that has the opportunity to work with him.

There are no words. Just look at the pictures! John and his team are absolutely amazing. From the moment we walked in to talk to John and Lovina, we knew that they were the photographers we needed to make our day complete. We later found out that John's father was the photographer for my parents wedding-- FATE!
John and the team made us feel comfortable, even made me laugh while we were getting ready in the morning (which is hard to make a bride do!) Our massive bridal party was a bit of a concern- but John was able to keep everyone focused and make our pictures PERFECT. Our Big Fat Greek Beach Wedding would not have been the same without John Arcara Photography. Will be using them again soon- Just need an event! =)

Our morning dawned bright and sunny; about an hour into the day John and his staff arrived. When looking for a vendor to take pictures at our wedding we were VERY picky. My daughter and her fiance dislike having a camera shoved into their face all day long. At first we decided to forgo having a video made; for the same reason. The idea of a videographer taking over the wedding turned our stomach. No worries with John, he comes to the event himself and sets the mood with his sense of humor. Within an hour I felt as if he were an invited guest, he was making fun of me just like my brothers do! John is a bit more expensive than others photographers we contacted but...he was worth every penny. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Arcara Photography, he doesn't disappoint and by the end of your day you'll have a brand new family member. You'll know all about John's love of shoes and his daughters obsession with Loubotins! As for his videography, PSST you won't even know he is there until you see the divine results of his passion...photography. *Just be careful with your own camera lens, if he likes it you might be looking for a new one! :) MOB

Our morning dawned bright and sunny; about an hour into the day John and his staff arrived. When looking for a vendor to take pictures at our wedding we were VERY picky. My daughter and her fiance dislike having a camera shoved into their face all day long. At first we decided to forgo having a video made; for the same reason. The idea of a videographer taking over the wedding turned our stomach. No worries with John, he comes to the event himself and sets the mood with his sense of humor. Within an hour I felt as if he were an invited guest, he was making fun of me just like my brothers do! John is a bit more expensive than others photographers we contacted but...he was worth every penny. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Arcara Photography, he doesn't disappoint and by the end of your day you'll have a brand new family member. You'll know all about John's love of shoes and his daughters obsession with Loubotins! As for his videography, PSST you won't even know he is there until you see the divine results of his passion...photography. *Just be careful with your own camera lens, if he likes it you might be looking for a new one! :) MOB Read less
