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

UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING & FANTASTIC in every single way! When searching for my vendors I kept a lot of wedding advice in mind. One VERY IMPORTANT piece of advice I was given that I would give to EVERYONE is...when all the planning is done & the best party of your life is over, all you will have left is your memories & your photos/video. This is in my opinion one of the MOST IMPORTANT PARTS in all the planning. I heard about John Arcara Photography from a friend & could not wait to meet with them. Before I went I looked at their work & sure to say WOW. I sat down with John & knew this is it!!! There was no other photographers I wanted to work with. I looked at other wedding albums in their studio & felt like I was at those weddings! I watched a few vimeo clips & thought WOW! They captured every moment & all the little details. John is so knowledgable, passionate, & talented. John, Lovina, & each and every person on their team are PHENOMENAL beyond words. They are the nicest, most down to earth people! They made me & my now husband feel so comfortable. There was no worry what so ever. They are always readily available for their couples, & willing to help in anyway they can. You don't just get photographers & videographers you get friends! Everything we wanted we received & much much more! We also chose them as our videographers. OF COURSE, the crew was WONDERFUL! On our big day we felt like celebrities. When we look at our photos or watch our video we relive that day all over again. Mission accomplished!!!!! We get extremely emotional EVERY single time. What they captured took our breathe away! The photography we received are more then just pictures to us, they are works of art, ours,that John & his team helped us to create. They create true magic through the lens of their cameras. We can't express in words how thankful we are for the incredible job John & his team did but in this review we tried! If you want the ABSOLUTE BEST CHOOSE JOHN ARCARA!-Stef & Kurt 9/6/14

My daughter and I looked at many different photographers, John was first and none compared to him- from his personality to his gallery to his work we knew he was the one. Besides that he was into shoes and that was an immediate connection he had with my daughter! And then there was the fact that he helped her find her amazing make-up person and helped with the time line. It's really the little things. And then the wedding! Yes, it was a Thursday at an amazing venue, but afterwards what will we have but the memories and the pictures! John was amazing! He made my gorgeous daughter look stunning! And I've only seen the preliminary pictures! He was easy to work with, unobtrusive and so nice! There are not enough words to describe the accolades we are getting from these pictures so far! The only thing I would change is less time with family pictures and more fun pictures with the bride and groom and their amazing wedding party. But that was our choice! HE has some eye- Definitely worth every penny. Recommend him without a doubt!

As a couple that paid for their own wedding, we were VERY conscious of where we spent our money. Photo and Video was one place that we knew was important so we did extensive research before choosing John Arcara Photography/ Videography. We knew they did incredible work, but what we did not expect was the amount of time and energy they put in to making our wedding day PERFECT. The team was genuine and personable, they took our nervous energy and turned it into a fun, relaxed environment. They came dressed to perfection and carried themselves throughout the entire night with nothing but professionalism. Matt put together a same day edit that captured our day and wowed our guests, they brought an energy and talent to our wedding that I would have spent any amount of money for. I highly, highly recommend their services!

From engagement photos to the wedding day John stuck by our side the whole time. If you look at his website, his amazing photos speak for themselves so I knew I was in good hands. What impressed me the most was the interest John took in the actual planning and details of our wedding. He wasn't just our photographer but our wedding planner as well. He gave great advice and recommendations along the way for other vendors and ideas.On the day of our wedding I didn't have to worry about a thing or try and remember the kinds of pictures I wanted to take, he took charge and made sure everything was absolutely perfect. Hiring John was more than I could have asked for and money well spent!

My husband and I cannot thank John Arcara enough for capturing our wedding day. We knew we wanted John as our photographer from the moment we met him. His passion and enthusiasm is contagious and his pictures are absolutely incredible! He is so easy to work with and a true professional in every sense of the word. He has a true gift in putting people at ease and making them feel so beautiful/special in front of the camera. John went above and beyond and set up a slide show during our reception – our guests are still talking about it! We are so appreciative and cannot wait to see the rest of our photos! John Arcara Photography is simply the best!

John Arcara is absolutely the best photographer! We loved working with him and would 100% recommend him to any bride and groom. He not only has amazing ideas but is such a pleasure to work with. He is incredible at what he does, our wedding pictures were amazing! Its so hard to choose which ones are our favorite because we loved them all! On our wedding day he made us feel so comfortable and made taking pictures fun, he also was great at directing the bridal party and family pictures. He had such wonderful ideas. We cannot wait to get our album! My husband and I loved working with John Arcara and his team, and look forward to working with him again when we have a baby!
