John Barone is a direct descendent of both Pablo Picasso and Leonardo da Vinci- hence his unmatched artistic inventiveness.


John Barone accepted a gig as the king of France's personal photographer, being paid to follow his majesty for several years shortly after graduating the fifth grade.


John Barone, in fact, found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, which was guarded by a leprechaun. Although his instincts told him to capture this phenomenon on camera, he knew, from experience, that leprechauns hate to have their pictures taken, and he respects that.


John Barone once wrestled an alpha male crocodile in the swamps of Brazil in order to gain rights to shoot on the land. He won.


In 1999, John barone and his family were captured by Pirates off the coast of southern Africa. Shortly after wooing them with his charm, he was able to overcome the crew of 22 using just a lanyard and a tripod. He then swam 50 miles back to shore whilst carrying his wife and son.


When Kanye West is running low on confidence, he calls John Barone.


John Barone is actually a wizard, but instead of using his powers for evil, he has been dominating the Philadelphia wedding scene and conjuring nostalgic emotion from even the coldest of souls for over two centuries. You will not be disappointed.

It was an absolute pleasure to have John and Kate photograph our wedding. They were so easy going and fun to work with. They made sure every important shot was taken, and any shot I or someone else had recommended. I am SO excited to see the professional pictures when they are completed- for which I'll probably write another review! I know they'll turn out fantastic, because most of the time we got the added bonus of either John or Kate looking into the camera and saying, "this is a really good shot!" The b&w photo shoot is also a great plus to hiring John. I can't wait to see those photos too! I keep gushing about all of our vendors, but I seriously can't help it. Even though I haven't seen the final shots, I've been recommending John Barone to everyone! Having confidence in John's ability allowed us to relax and enjoy the event. Thanks for making our day even more special by capturing moments that will help us never forget the beginnings of our "happily ever after."

John Barone was an amazing photographer. He was extremely organized and basically ran the show from the morning of everyone getting ready to the very last moment at the wedding reception. He knew exactly the timeframe required for every shot and had us on a schedule to make everything run smoothly. His pictures are amazing. His creatitvity and originallity captured every special moment of the most important day of our lives. We have not stopped receiving comliments on how awesome our photos turned out. One of my favorite shots was of my husband, Brett, tied up laying across train tracks . I was standing up over him with one foot up and my arms crossed. It was such a creative idea that he came up with and we will always remember that moment and how great the photo turned out. I highly recomment him.

John Barone Photography were amazing on the day of our wedding, but also the days/months leading up to it. He was very professional when we met with him each time, but also made us feel at home with his personality and character. You have to be able to connect with your photographer since they are such a big part of your day and John did that with us.

My husband and I are each amateur photographers aspiring to be professionals at some point, so choosing the right photographer for us with the artisitc touch we desired, was really important. After looking at several photographers' photos, once we came to John, we knew we found our guy! And he was available :) (hint-book now!!).

John and Kate were very flexible the day of our wedding too. With the lack of daylight we had, they had to be quick and creative to get the perfect shots, while also incorporating some last minute/off the cuff shots that my husband and I wanted and hadn't planned for. They got along great with our wedding party and had us all laughing while in 35 degree weather for almost an hour!

They were professionals throughout the entire day and also worked seamlessley during the cocktail hour and reception - so much I didn't even notice that they were taking pictures of me most of the night! They just blended in with the crowd capturing the 'story' throughout the day/night. Our guests also loved the upscaled version of a 'photobooth' by having a classic B&W set which lended itself to fit larger group photos when necessary. More classy and more fun = priceless images

Although I have yet to see my final proofs yet, you may ask why can I still give them all 5 stars? Because they've earned it thus far and from what I saw from them that day, and what I've seen from their other shoots, I have no doubt in my mind that they will be amazing.

Thank you John and Kate for being our photographers on our wedding!!!

For our wedding, John and Kate helped capture the day for us and they were personable and professional. We were lucky enough to learn about John through a work colleague and after meeting with a half dozen vendors, it was an easy choice for us to pick him. He assisted with our schedule, any extra questions we had, and he worked fast, so my wife and I were able to actually hang out during the cocktail hour. He's been great from the months before the wedding to any feedback afterwards. If you get him, consider yourself lucky - we do. Thanks John and Kate!!!!

We first were introduced to John Barone Photography a few years ago at a friend's wedding. When my fiancé and I got engaged, after picking our wedding date, we immediately met with John. His style and creativity were his main selling point (at first). After our meeting, I knew he was the photographer I wanted to capture our wedding. His personality is an added bonus to the quality of his work. We initially shot our engagement photos with John and the results were absolutely amazing.

Our wedding was on November 9th. Leading up to the day, John was in contact to formulate a plan for the day to assure that he was able to give us what we wanted. On our wedding day, John and Kate were able to capture every moment without being overbearing. While at the reception, I barely knew they were there. John also set up a black and white "fashion shoot" for your guests to take photos during the reception, it was a huge hit with our family and friends. My mom already said he is hired for my sister's future wedding.

After receiving our wedding photos, I literally could not stop looking at them. My husband and I were blown away by our collection. We decided against a videographer because we did not want our wedding to feel like a "show" and have additional distractions. After the wedding, I had some feelings of regret regarding this decision. But after seeing our photos, there was truly no need to video our wedding. We have a perfect collection of beautiful photos that told the story of our wedding and showcased the details, events and emotion of our day.

I would highly recommended John Barone to anyone. He is simply the best and the pictures are most definitely worth the wait!

Words cannot even begin to explain how grateful I am to John and Kate for everything they did to capture our wedding day into the most beautiful set of photos I've ever seen. I really wanted to write a positive review right after my wedding (that's how great they were), but I figured I should wait until I had the final set of photos so I could write a full review. The photos are even more gorgeous than I could have ever imagined. First of all, John and Kate were so great the day of the wedding - they were so professional, organized, and best of all, they helped me to relax and put my mind at ease. I was never worried about something being missing from the photos. They made everything so much fun and were great to work with. Now on to the photos - WOW! My husband and I felt like we were reliving our wedding day as we looked through each one. They captured the spirit of the day - we laughed, cried (happy tears of course), and just could not stop smiling looking through each one. I am so very grateful that John Barone Photography was one of the first vendors I booked - I felt confident in them every step of the way and the pictures prove just how amazing John and his team are. THANK YOU!!!

John Barone Photography is the BEST!!! Many of my friends were married before me, and their photographers were good, but I just fell in love with John Barone's work immediately. He's definitely a cut above the rest, and his work is not your typical stuff. Pat was our photographer for the day, and we just love him!! Not only is he an AMAZING photographer, but he's also super nice, funny, easy going, and just an all around blast to work with! He did his job with such precision and ease, and took awesome photos at the ceremony and reception without even seeming like he was there, which is a great thing because I've been to plenty of weddings where the photographer is practically on top of the couple; Pat though was stealthy.

The other thing that sets them apart from your typical wedding photographer is their black and white photo set. its 1,000 times better than any Photo Booth. Its a black backdrop where you can take photo booth like pictures, but fit a lot more people, and its way more fun and artistic. It's also in black and white, so its super cool and different. On top of everything that you get, the prices are awesome and worth every single penny. Weddings are very expensive, and if I'm putting out a lot of money I want to make sure I'm getting my money's worth; with John Barone you absolutely will! I recommend them to everyone who is looking for a photographer, and I'm so excited for my cousins wedding next year because they are also using Pat from John Barone Photography. With JB you will not be disappointed. Just make sure you book ASAP because they book up quickly.

John Barone Photography is the BEST!!! Many of my friends were married before me, and their photographers were good, but I just fell in love with John Barone's work immediately. He's definitely a cut above the rest, and his work is not your typical stuff. Pat was our photographer for the day, and we just love him!! Not only is he an AMAZING photographer, but he's also super nice, funny, easy going, and just an all around blast to work with! He did his job with such precision and ease, and took awesome photos at the ceremony and reception without even seeming like he was there, which is a great thing because I've been to plenty of weddings where the photographer is practically on top of the couple; Pat though was stealthy.

The other thing that sets them apart from your typical wedding photographer is their black and white photo set. its 1,000 times better than any Photo Booth. Its a black backdrop where you can take photo booth like pictures, but fit a lot more people, and its way more fun and artistic. It's also in black and white, so its super cool and different. On top of everything that you get, the prices are awesome and worth every single penny. Weddings are very expensive, and if I'm putting out a lot of money I want to make sure I'm getting my money's worth; with John Barone you absolutely will!

John Barone was the first photographer we met with and we handed them a check on the spot! John's team was very professional, and you hardly even noticed that they were there! Pat was very nice and relaxing, he even helped me relax when I was getting worked up! They were very creative and put us in many different poses to get great shots! Everything went smoothly to them showing up, getting everyone together and in poses, to when they left! The black and white photo booth is the best idea ever! You get great goofy pictures and you get pictures of people that might not be in all the main pictures, you can get pictures of everyone at the wedding in the photobooth! High recommend John Barone and his team for any wedding!

Picking a wedding photographer was one of the most important parts of my wedding planning. I wanted someone who was competent and I could depend on to capture the most important moments of our wedding and JBP has far exceeded my expectations. I have done a pin-up shoot with him and then engagement photos. The pin-up shoot was intimidating, but John made me feel extremely comfortable and the pictures came out amazing. I'm in love with our engagement photos. JBP made the whole experience so fun and really captured the love and playfulness of our relationship. I have recommended him to all of my friends who have recently gotten engaged. Well worth the money. I am so excited for JBP to shoot our wedding because I know the pictures are going to be amazing.

I cannot say enough positive things about John Barone Photography. When I got engaged, knowing nothing about wedding planning and with an obsession with art, I figured booking a photographer would kick off the process in a fun way. I started looking at the wedding pictures of friends and absolutely fell in love with John's work on a friend's wedding. Though JBP books way in a advance, we were so lucky he was available given 8 months notice.

Throughout the process, John talked me into a pinup shoot as a gift for my future husband, and the photos came out amazing! I got to check a 'racey photo shoot' off my bucket list and John put me at ease and boosted my confidence through the roof in the process! I was so happy with the pinup that we booked him for engagement photos too. As a person who generally thinks engagement photos are of the corny variety (aka matching white shirts on the beach), John really accommodated us by doing a fun photo shoot in our neighborhood ('in da hood').

John was away for our wedding so Pat Robinson stepped in all day and made the process comfortable and painless! Both photographers are crazy talented in picking out the very best way to complement a couple. JBP's combination of creativity, professionalism, and talent in capturing the spirit of each couple speaks for itself. In the case of JBP, a picture is truly worth a thousand words, and a bargain price for the caliber of work.

Matt and Dave were absolutely amazing throughout the entire day. All of our guests commented on how they were in every location to ensure they got all the shots from getting dressed to the final moments of our reception. They worked hard to make our day EXTRA special. I can NOT wait to see the final product. We had a wonderful experience from the first time we met John Barone and Dave until even after the wedding when we had questions regarding photo albums, etc. Wonderful Experience! I can't wait to schedule a trash the dress session with them..

Picking a photographer for our wedding was our most important priority. We met with a few but with John it just clicked...he "got" us and we knew he would capture our day the way we wanted. When we did our engagement shoot it confirmed what we were hoping...the pictures turned out amazing!! But more than that, we felt so comfortable with John....he pushed us out of our comfort zone just enough to get a great shot, but it never felt fake or staged.

When the wedding day came John was on top of everything...he helped me put a schedule together that kept the day running smoothly, he remembered every little detail that I was obsessing over, and we HAD FUN! Both John and his partner Katie were fantastic, so professional, they were everywhere all day but never in the way, in fact several guests said that they didn't even notice our photographers. By the end of the night they were just like two more friends that came to our wedding. And most importantly, our wedding pictures are out of control good. This guy is worth every penny!

I was recommended John through 2 of my girlfriends who both used him for engagement, pin-up, and wedding photos. From the moment my fiance and I met John we knew it was a perfect match. He let us express our ideas and asked about how we met, adjectives to describe each other and the overall feeling we were looking for for our wedding. I browsed through his ipad filled with hundreds of gorgeous unique photographs. Each photograph seem to have a little story behind and I felt that made the experience even more personal. We booked him instantly (because he will fill up fast) and I couldn't be happier. When all is said and done after your wedding is over the only thing you have to look back on is your photos. We recently had our engagement shoot with John in Philadelphia down at the Navy yard where Urban outfitter headquarters are located. Our pictures are amazing! I have received so many compliments from complete strangers who have seen my photos through a friend of a friend. I look at the photos at least 3 times a week because I am obsessed with them. I am planning to book my pin-up shoot this fall and I am super excited. John is the best of the best. Me and my fiance felt that we could let go and be ourselves and he captured us in the moment which makes a beautiful photograph. I am so excited that he will be the one capturing every detail of our wedding because I know the photos will be amazing! THANKS JOHN!

Out of all of my vendors, I felt John was the most interested and involved in helping plan our day and kept up with all of our phone calls and questions down to the week before the wedding. He made me feel at ease knowing we were in good hands.

John gave me some great advice when we were planning for the timing before the ceremony. He asked for us all to have hair and makeup done by 1 PM if we were leaving by 2:30. I thought this was a big chunk of time, but he promised it would be worth it. I can't say how grateful I am for his sound advice! I was extremely calm because we were way ahead of schedule, and John took some beautiful shots of my bridesmaids and I getting ready. Everything felt so relaxed, and I know I have John to thank. It put everyone in a good mood because no one was rushed through hair or makeup. If you are lucky enough to have John as your photographer, be sure to take his advice. He wants you to be happy throughout your wedding day, as well as the day you get your photos back.

We just got our pictures back the other day and they are stunning! We did not have much to work with around the church, so we went to an old barn John had never seen before and he worked his magic. I am so happy with all of our photos. If I could redo the wedding again, I would hire John in a heartbeat.

The black and white photos from the reception came out amazing as well. My Dad was a little skeptical for fear of having an actual photobooth at the reception, but the setup was tastefully done. Everyone loved the idea of having their portraits taken with family. I am so happy we went with John. I promise, you will not be disappointed!

We were so happy to have chosen John Barone Photography for our wedding! John was very laid back and flexible from day one. Whenever I had a question, John was very easy to get in touch with and always responded within a day to my emails/calls. Before the wedding he provided a template with ideas for pictures and the usual flow of the day, which was helpful for me! That being said he was also very flexible and willing to work with you to come up with the perfect shots for your big day.
John met the girls at the salon and was able to mingle and get to know us a little before everything started. When we got back to the hotel he helped keep us on track and took pictures of all of the details (shoes, flowers, jewelry, etc) and then of all of the girls getting ready. Meanwhile, his second photographer Kate was setting up at the church and reception venue and met up with the guys while they were getting ready. I really appreciated John's opinions and advice throughout the whole planning and the actual day (i.e. do we really need to do a bouquet/garter toss?).
He captured great pictures of the ceremony. Having two photographers, he was able to capture me walking down the aisle and my grooms reaction when he first saw me. They got some great shots from above the sanctuary that were just awesome (I don't even know how he got those!).
When we got to the reception venue, we got our fun "formal" pictures of the bridal party and they turned out great! Many people said they look like they should be in a wedding magazine! At the end of the night, we had a firework send-off and John captured some great shots of us watching. After that, he took my favorite pictures using slow exposure and long sparklers that turned out AWESOME. I have received so many compliments on our photographer since the wedding.
In addition to all of that, one very unique service he offers is the "Portrait Set" where he takes professional black and whites of our wedding guests. Everyone loved it!

I love my wedding pictures. Our complete set is filled with beautiful photos of me and my loved ones and it really tells the story of my whole day. John and his partners are just amazing. They were with us from start to finish and they really captured the fun and feelings of joy and love from the day.

John is extremely calm, cool and collected, even under pressure, which I found really nice on the big day (he was also great with my mom!). He is very organized and detail oriented. He takes charge when he needs to, but he was very sensitive to the flow of the day and events.

John really cares about the people he shoots. He went out of his way to make sure that we had at least one really special, 'different', shot of just us. John scoped out locations and then suggested sneaking onto the diving board of the pool for the photos. In the midst of an unexpected heat wave (exacerbated by a faulty air conditioning system), the pool photo shoot provided a truly refreshing break. I returned from my foot dip in the pool revived and ready to dance! And the photos are some of my favorite (and not ones you see every day).

John and Doug were awesome! From the minute we met John we knew we needed him for our destination wedding! He was a champ and brought the black and white fashion set and his scuba gear to do a trash the dress shoot all the way to Mexico! He is extremely down to earth and very easy to work with. From the actual wedding to the trash the dress, he did not let us down. He listened to all of our ideas and incorporated them into his own. John truly cares about getting the perfect shot and he makes it happen! All of our pictures came out incredible and we are so happy that we have all of these amazing photos to remember our wedding day. We cannot wait to find an excuse to use John again. We would definitely recommend John to everyone!

Best. Photographer. Ever.

One of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding was hiring John as our photographer. From the moment we met him we realized he would be super easy and fun to work with - something that just made us feel very comfortable and excited about the upcoming experience. We left our meeting feeling 100% confident that he was the one we wanted to work with.
On the day of the wedding John was more than just a photographer. He and Pat were nothing short of amazing in getting everyone organized, coming up with amazing shots and locations, keeping everyone on schedule, and, most of all, making it so smooth and FUN.
John and Pat were simply fantastic in all aspects of the job - not just in taking great photos. They kept us all cool, calm, collected, kept us laughing and feeling silly, and constantly reminded us to enjoy the special day. I never felt overwhelmed, stressed, or as if needed to worry whether the moments where being captured - John simply made me feel at ease from the very beginning and I knew I could 110% trust him to do what he needed to do.
Probably the most memorable part of the day was when John and Pat took me aside while I was feeling stressed over one of our vendors being late and suggested we take some fun pictures to take my mind off of things. While nothing could have truly calmed my nerves, I was extremely appreciative of how receptive and attentive they were in that moment (and for the rest of the day!).
I think I speak for my entire family and bridal party when I say that the day would not have gone as smoothly or been as fun had John and Pat not been part of it. We have repeatedly gotten feedback from everyone telling us how much they loved him and Pat. We couldn't have spent our money more wisely. I can't imagine having worked with anyone else!!!

Awesome. There’s no other way to describe John Barone and his talented team of photographers.

We met John Barone at a friend’s wedding in Wilmington, DE. At the time, we were in the midst of planning our own nuptials, a 2013 destination wedding in Key West. Disappointed with the options available to us, we thought we’d be so lucky to have him shoot our event. After all, the memories of what you served for dinner and the flavor of the cake fade over time. But your photos are forever.

That’s exactly why we chose John Barone Photography. They packed up and met us in Key West. The communication and planning was super easy, and wow, they did not disappoint.

We already knew we hired the best creative talent when we signed on with John. And based upon our early conversations with him along with feedback from others, we knew he would be great to work with. What we didn’t fully expect was how easily both John and Pat integrated themselves into our intimate, 50-person wedding weekend. In fact my mom assumed we’d known them for years.

Hands down, John Barone Photography is the best choice in Philadelphia. But if you’re planning a destination wedding, don’t assume you need to hire some over-priced, pre-packaged local yokel. Take John Barone Photography with you. They’re reliable, travel light, and they respect incidental costs as if they were spending their own money—not to mention they’re a whole heck of a lot of fun.

We’re thrilled with John and Pat’s work. Their creativity and talent for capturing every special moment is top notch, and the images they snapped will tell the story of the most amazing weekend of our lives for generations to come.

So do yourself a favor. Hire John Barone Photography for your big day. You will not be disappointed.
Awesome. There’s no other way to describe John Barone and his talented team of photographers.

Awesome. There’s no other way to describe John Barone and his talented team of photographers.

We met John Barone at a friend’s wedding in Wilmington, DE. At the time, we were in the midst of planning our own nuptials, a 2013 destination wedding in Key West. Disappointed with the options available to us, we thought we’d be so lucky to have him shoot our event. After all, the memories of what you served for dinner and the flavor of the cake fade over time. But your photos are forever.

That’s exactly why we chose John Barone Photography. They packed up and met us in Key West. The communication and planning was super easy, and wow, they did not disappoint.

We already knew we hired the best creative talent when we signed on with John. And based upon our early conversations with him along with feedback from others, we knew he would be great to work with. What we didn’t fully expect was how easily both John and Pat integrated themselves into our intimate, 50-person wedding weekend. In fact my mom assumed we’d known them for years.

We had John for our wedding in this April. We scheduled to meet in his neighborhood cafe and he showed us his work from past weddings on his iPad. They were great journalistic photos. I especially liked those color-rich outdoor shots (although our wedding was in a mostly indoor place, later). We were also intrigued by the Photo Fashion Set offering, which we hadn't seen in other photographer's and looked really nice.

But the one thing that made the decision for us was that John was a perfectionist. During our chat with him, we could tell that he's always thinking about how to make better shots, even he already got a lot of experience.

John is very responsive when it comes to emails. I had a lot of questions and usually I got his return email in just minutes. Even when he was out working, he would reply me with short emails promptly. That's very helpful for me to make decisions quickly.

John has worked in our venue before and he gave us a lot of good suggestions, pros and cons for time and places to do some certain type of shot,what fun activities we can squeeze in between the ceremony and the reception, when and where to set up the fashion set. We had merely 2 hours between the ceremony and the reception, and we needed to do the dress bustling, formal family photos, grab some snack, and do a little rehearsal of first dance. With John's leadership, we were able to walk out the venue and do some quick urban street shots with the bridal party, including some of our best wedding photos.

When we finally see the photos, it was like WOW, so beautiful! He definitely captured the beauty of our day, our lifetime memories. I had a big concern of the venue being dark, but thanks to John, I was happy to see that all photos turned out to be bright and colorful, just what I wished. People absolutely love their artistic fashion set photos. It was a great experience for every one.

From the moment I saw John Barone's photos, I knew I had to have him be the one to capture the most special day of my life. This feeling was further solidified when I first met John (he set aside time on Mother's Day - the only day I was in the Philly area).

Throughout the entire wedding planning process, John was extremely professional and helpful - and more responsive than any other person I've worked with. He was also game to do an engagement photo session so my husband and I could get comfortable with being photographed and with John's style. It was about 100 degrees in the middle of July with 99% humidity, but John sweated it out to capture beautiful photos, one of which we used as our save the date.

Then when it came to the day of the wedding, John and Pat were phenomenal. They were everywhere and yet invisible all at once. They were accommodating - Pat kicked dirt and other grime out of my path to keep my dress from getting messy. They were creative - suggesting fun poses to a less than imaginative group of subjects. And they captured every last thing I want to remember - from the feelings we had, to the people that were there, to even the smallest detail that may seem unimportant, but meant a lot to me and my family, e.g. the ring pillow made out of my mother's wedding dress.

One more thing I'll say about John Barone - when he told us about the black and white photo set that comes with the package I was skeptical. But the photos turned out to be among my favorites of the entire wedding. Additionally, when I felt a bit overwhelmed from time to time during the reception - I found myself going out to John and Pat at the photo set to catch some fresh air. We felt that comfortable with them.

Very long story short - John Barone takes spectacular, unique photos. HI have flipped through the 1,000 photos we received just last night about 15 times already, and I know we will cherish them forever.

Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions when wedding planning. We knew John was the one for us within minutes of talking with him, not only because of his amazing work, but also his easy going personality. He captures the perfect moments and takes amazing photos you wouldn't get with just a regular photographer. He isn't afraid to step outside the box to get beautiful shots. In addition, many of our guests commented that John was the least invasive wedding photographer they have ever seen! He managed to capture all the amazing shots while going virtually unnoticed.

Throughout the wedding planning John became more than our photographer, but also our friend. We have spent hours looking at our perfect photographs and reliving the day. We could't have made a better decision! Now we just need to find another excuse to work with John again :)

John Barone -

We LOVE our wedding photos!! (But that's a given, since I knew you were the best from the moment we met you.) They are perfect!

My Mom is thrilled you used the moss as the backdrop for some of the detail shots (yes, she really did text me about the moss photos this morning).

The emotion captured in the first glance and ceremony photos had me choked up all over again. The formals at the gardens came out better than I could have imagined - frozen toes were worth it claimed my one bridesmaid - and I couldn't agree more! And Rich and I were laughing so hard we were holding our stomachs by the time we got to the b&w photos.

My mom and dad were in tears as they went through the online album Sunday night and Rich's parents are very happy too.

Our photos had the perfect balance of candid, posed, emotion, dancing, table setup, etc. When you work with someone who knows the ins and outs of a wedding, you can spend the night not worrying about what you and Pat were up to - and that's exactly what we did.

Needless to say John Barone, you and Patrick Robinson were a hit and are now on a first name basis in my family.

P.S. Rich was thoroughly impressed by the delivery of the thumb drive in the nest. It's the little things sometimes. :)

Looking forward to what the future has in store for us and having you capture more special moments for us.

I can’t say enough about John – he was great helping to plan the timing of our wedding day, on the actual wedding day, and the pictures are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! As soon as my husband and I met with John, we knew that we would love working with him and that he would do an awesome job. On the day of the wedding, it was great to have someone that you consider a friend by your side the entire day. John and Pat gave us great ideas for some really fun shots and the B&W portrait set was a huge hit. I’ve receive so many compliments on my pictures. They capture the emotions of the day unlike anything else. I can’t stop looking at them! A friend of ours referred us to John and I would definitely pass the recommendation on to anyone!

I could not have been happier with John and his team! Aside from your husband - your pictures are one of your most important keepsakes ;p I'm so glad that John Barone captured mine. Since John started his career doing fashion photography he really brings a unique style to his pictures. You aren't going to get the standard cookie cutter wedding photos that people have seen time and time again. He beautifully captures your vision after speaking to you and learning what makes you - you. He makes fantastic suggestions and does everything in his power to obtain your shots. Aside from that he is really personable and makes a point to arrive on site early enough to get to know everyone in the wedding party. That way everyone feels comfortable with him and the pictures arent so stuffy. It's more like a friend is taking a picture of you either looking nice or being silly. And he makes the most of your setting. Even if you think you dont have the greatest backdrop at your venue - he still manages to pull off magazine worthy photos. Hire this guy and you will be grateful you did.

We went with John after seeing his work from our friends' wedding that we also attended. What we didn't want was the same wedding pictures that everyone we knew had - we wanted just a few formal shots and plenty of candids. In order for the "magic" to happen, you have to feel comfortable with your photographer to let the genuine emotion come through. John and Pat were both incredibly professional on our wedding day, and even in the months and days leading up to it (By the way couples - listen to his suggestions, and fill out the paperwork he asks you to - it's worth it in the long run). Our day was great, and never once did we, or our guests, feel like they were being intruded upon by the photographers. We opted not to get a video of our wedding because we knew that our still shots would be incredible, and we were right. Our guests can't stop complimenting the pictures, especially the black and white fashion shots. You have no idea how great they are to look over months after the big day - it brings you right back! John and Pat were a pleasure to deal with in every aspect - highly recommend!

Where to begin? I have nothing but great things to say about John Barone Photography. I was lucky enough to be referred to them by a friend before I got married. After my boyfriend finally proposed, John was the first person I contacted. We got engaged in August and I wanted to get married the following October.... John still had a few dates available and I literally chose the date of my wedding around when he was available. I have a passion for photography and I wanted theeee BEST... so I got John Barone. John and his co-photographer Pat didn't just feel like vendors, they felt like friends at our wedding. They managed to capture all of our special moments and every special detail, yet I barely saw them throughout the night. I can't help but recommend them to everyone! My hubby and I also had our engagement photos taken by JBP. I can't even explain how many compliments we received! They were original and beautiful and I was thrilled when I got them back. I also surprised my husband with a pin-up photography album the night before our wedding when we said goodbye before our meeting at the altar. What an awesome way to say "see yah later"--- because, seriously, John made me look like a supermodel! Unreal! I was like, "is that me?!" So awesome. Anyways, I truly and whole heartedly believe that JBP is the best. I am so happy that my favorite memories were captured thanks to John Barone Photography. Affordable, extraordinary, absolutely one of a kind. JBP, simply, the best.

Working with John was such a relief compared to the ordeal I faced with other vendors. We decided to get married in Jamaica on our own and when we came home had a reception for everyone. We hired John to be our photographer for that reception and from our first meeting John was professional, courteous, and extremely accommodating. We chose to hire him because his style was really what we felt could capture our evening with friends and family and he did. I would highly recommend working with him on any event and appreciate his willingness to worth through some issues we experienced with our venue who wouldn't allow him to bring in his lights or tripods or set up the fashion photo shoot we were so excited about. Our photos turned out wonderful and we couldn't ask for more.

John Barone and his photographers are very professional and are the highest quality in the business. They will always come through with great photos that can bring together a beautiful "story" of your day with their well chosen shots. The guys are great to work with are super cool and know how to make the session go smooth. Case in point my groomsman were struggling to fold their pocket silk properly and our photographer, Pat was able to fold and place it perfectly for my groomsman's close ups. You cant go wrong with them unless you don't use them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

John and his crew are great. They're professional, friendly, thorough, and accommodating. They captured all facets of our big day, from the bridal party getting ready through the reception, and they think outside the box (pardon the cliche) and get creative shots that other photographers wouldn't. They were also quick and efficient with the formal group shots, allowing the bride and I to join our guests for cocktails before the reception. No complaints, and I'd recommend them in a heartbeat!

John Barone is a consummate professional and the moment we met him, we knew he was our guy. Getting married 6 hours from where we live meant lots of vendor meetings crammed into one weekend. From the start, John was flexible in meeting us halfway and spending time face-to-face with us because he know how important that was for my husband and me. John was the fifth photographer we met with on a rainy Saturday and by the time we sat down with him we were beat. John's energy and passion for photography reinvigorated us and we knew he was the one for us.

John's impressive background in fashion photography was one of my main attractions; considering how important the small details of the day were for me. I wanted to look back 25 years from now and remember the texture of my dress, the jewelry and shoes, the vibrancy of the dance floor and the look in everyone's eyes. I knew that John could capture this and more importantly I knew how much he cared about those things himself.

John was so responsive along the way and was always there for a phone call when I needed to discuss any thoughts with him. I loved that he chose not to charge by the hour, considering how rare this is for wedding photography. He knew his day would be focused on our wedding and that he would take all the time he needed. His "photo booth" addition is amazing and we cannot wait to see the photos from that. From the few teasers we have received, we are so confident that the rest of the pictures from our day will be amazing.

John Barone is a consummate professional and the moment we met him, we knew he was our guy. Getting married 6 hours from where we live meant lots of vendor meetings crammed into one weekend. From the start, John was flexible in meeting us halfway and spending time face-to-face with us because he know how important that was for my husband and me. John was the fifth photographer we met with on a rainy Saturday and by the time we sat down with him we were beat. John's energy and passion for photography reinvigorated us and we knew he was the one for us.

John and Pat were a pleasure to work with. John was so flexible in accommodating my unusual day of wedding schedule and figured out a way to fit in all of the photographs we wanted without making us miss out on any of the fun of the wedding. Pat did a great job shooting the day of the wedding and captured some truly wonderful moments. The pictures turned out fantastic!

I can't thank John Barone & his team enough for saving our wedding. My husband & I found out 4 months prior to our originally scheduled wedding 9/29/12 that the caterer (Venice Plaza Caterers) we sent thousands & thousands of dollars to over an 18 month period scammed us. Our caterer was late on his state taxes & paid them using our money & never secured our venue by forwarding our deposit. To make matters a whole lot worse, our original scheduled photographer (Marc Anthony Photography) was not available for our new wedding date & refused to refund us our deposit of $1500. With a few months to go & thousands of dollars in the hole, I emailed John immediately & he called me within 15 minutes of my email. John assured me that he would do whatever he could. John took into consideration our financial state & created a package for us that showed he wasn't just in this business to make money. John was already photographing another wedding that day, but made sure he would have his best photographers capture of wedding day photos. My husband, bridal party, our parents & guests loved Pat & Dave. Dave was great in the black & white portrait booth & Pat was so creative with his suggestive poses & use of sun light. We’re anxiously awaiting our photos so we can say again just how happy we are for using John & his team. But most importantly, happy John was able to accommodate us on 4 months notice.

We had the best experience possible with John Barone Photography! Even from the 1st phone interaction we could tell that it was going to be a very personable experience. John took us out into Philadelphia to photograph our engagement pictures and he was able to make us feel so comfortable, even with a ton of people around watching us. We could tell right then that he was going to help make our wedding amazing... and he did! John brought Pat along to help him on the day of our wedding. Pat was just as great as John! John focused on the girls from the start of the morning & Pat on the guys. Our ceremony & reception were at Penn Oaks and we did the pictures before the ceremony. John & Pat were still able to make it a very memorable experience when we first saw each other as bride & groom. We also had a huge wedding party (11 guys & 10 girls) who like to have fun and carry on. John & Pat did a great job of keeping them organized and were both so nice and down to earth the entire time. During the ceremony and reception John & Pat were so helpful in guiding us through the night. Our guests loved the black and white photo booth type set-up they provided too!
We've only been through the wedding process once but we can't imagine that it's possible to have a better group of photographers than John & his team! We can't thank them enough!

We met Jon at a friends wedding a couple of years ago. He was awsome and I only had input on this one topic with our wedding and he and his staff exceeded our expectations! I have already recommended Jon to a few other couples who have recently gotten engaged and I would recommend him again.

Our wedding had quite a few problems and my wife was terribly upset most of the day. Jon and his staff were the only ones there that seemed understanding and helpful in what at the time seemed like a crisis.

We are extremely excited and cannot wait to see his amazing work once again!

John was the photographer for our wedding in July 2012. John and his staff were very organized, efficient and responsive which helped make the planning for our big day very easy and worry free! Let me start by saying that I typically hate all of my photos (seriously, I do!) but I have to say we were absolutely thrilled when we viewed our photos - they were all amazingly beautiful. Our friends and family say they look like something out of a magazine! John really has a special way of capturing the days events and special moments. We highly recommend John for your big day. Seriously, book him! You wont regret it!

John and Pat were beyond amazing and helped capture the essence of our wedding day.

From the beginning we knew John was "the one". We were arranging a wedding from the far distant land of Vermont, so face time with our vendors was at an extreme premium. We were visiting family in PA for Thanksgiving, and desperately trying to meet vendors and get our stuff settled before our July wedding. We talked to John, and were trying to work out when to meet that weekend. We said "Friday, maybe Saturday?" He said "I can meet on Thursday, if you're available." We reminded him Thursday was Thanksgiving Day, and he responded with "No problem, where can we meet that works for you?" Really? Who puts their Thanksgiving plans on hold to cater to a potential client? John does, that's who.

We met at a Starbucks, and John set up his iPad to show us his stuff. Being a true Italian, John was talking with his hands, and quite inadvertently knocked over his coffee. It dumped all over his iPad, and spilled on the bride, who was on crutches at the time. While the erstwhile husband jumped up and tried to save the iPad, John completely ignored his very expensive tablet, and made sure the bride was okay. He instantly put the bride first, which is exactly where I (the groom) think she should be.

After that, we were sold. We hired John, and he was an absolute rock star. He and Pat were there bright and early on our wedding day, scouting and setting up. John somehow fit seamlessly with a group of giggling ladies while they got ready, and Pat was cool calm and collected while shooting pictures of an extremely nervous groom. I'll be honest, our wedding day was a blur. I hardly noticed them all night. But thinking back, I've realized that for every moment I was thinking "I really want to remember that," John or Pat were right there. Absolutely everything I could have ever asked for in photographers, and so much more.

John and Patrick were wonderful. Throughout the wedding day, everyone was so impressed with Pat's friendliness, flexibility and professionalism. He was so nice and truly put everyone at ease. The photo booth was super fun and I know my friends made the most of it. The photos themselves are amazing -- they captured the mood and style of the wedding day perfectly. They have an editorial style to them that is casual and precious and really lets you relive the moments by just flipping through the photos. My new husband and I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.

If I could give John Barone and his team 10 stars I would! From start to finish he is a true professional but after your wedding you will feel like he is one of your friends. We looked to him for advise all day! And that is just the beginning! He really captured the emotions of the day and the pictures are out of this world. A friend called them "insanely excellent." All of my pictures look like something out of a magazine! (And, they will be in one in January too!!!) He also sets up a black and white fashion shoot for all your guests (included in your package)! No need for a photo booth this is WAYYY better! The guests loved, I mean loved it and him! I received so many compliments on my wedding photos I can't thank John and his team enough! Do not look anywhere else you have found your photographer! And book ahead! My cousin has already booked him for Fall 2013!!

Oh yeah, and our pictures are incredibly beautiful/awesome/fabulous!

We found John through a recommendation from a friend. We had both been in a couple weddings before where the photographer was just a necessary evil to capture the moment, but John and his assistant, Kate, were a breath of fresh air. John was quick, professional, knew what kind of pictures we wanted, and what pictures should be taken. He was very prompt in responding to any questions or issues we had and was also willing to make some recommendations based upon his experience. He was well organized and very detail oriented in explaining the timing of our day.

We were looking for someone who was creative and inventive and did not take the traditional photographs that every bride & groom get.. we wanted to capture those moments that were unexpected and emotional.

We received many complements on our photographers. They were present from the time of makeup/hair/dressing through the end of the reception. However, they pretty much went unnoticed.... They were very flexible in taking photos that we wanted at different times throughout the night.

Another fantastic feature that John has built into his packages is a black backdrop in lieu of a photobooth. Its sort of like a photo shoot at your wedding. Our reception was at the Tendenza and he set it up in the area where the cocktail hour was held after dinner. It was quite a hit with our family and friends. Instead of your guests trying to squeeze into a photobooth, John is able to capture "action" type black & white photos that look professional. The quality of these photos is exceptional compared to any photobooth photos that I have seen at any wedding.

I would absolutely recommend John to any bride/groom looking for a non-traditional, creative photographer to shoot their wedding. I would also recommend him for any bride looking to do pin-up photos for her soon-to-be husband. He is professional yet flexible. He is kind but confident. He captures some incredible moments that you can never mimic... we were so so so happy with him & Kate.

John and Kate did a great job photographing our wedding day. They both captured every detail, and we ended up with some beautiful photographs.
When deciding on a photographer, we appreciated that John was so accommodating with his time. While most photographers will set a time limit for your wedding day and charge in increments if you go over, John was committed to spending our entire day with us, start to finish. We followed his advice for a day-of timeline, and everything went smoothly. I was surprised that we actually had time to sit around for a few minutes before the ceremony; everyone was finished ahead of schedule.
Another value that sets John apart from other photographers is the "photo booth." John includes this with every wedding and sets up a black background for profile shots during the reception. Our guests absolutely loved this, and we now have a collection of great photos of our guests. Its already served as a reminder for who attended. :-)
My husband and I did an engagement session with John a year before the wedding. Again he was incredibly generous with his time, and we had a good chance to get to know him and learn about his style of shooting.

I had an absolutely wonderful wedding on May 27. All of the vendors we used were amazing. However, I fell most in love with our photographer. I first met John a year ago at a friend's wedding and was blown away when I saw the pictures. I knew he'd be my first call when I got engaged and started the whole planning process. Thankfully he was available the day I wanted (just 6 months notice) but if he wasn't, I seriously would have considered switching my date. People were coming up to me at my wedding telling me how great he and Kate were (easy going, relaxed and fun!). The photo booth (different and MUCH better than an actual photo booth rental) was so much fun and I love how all of my guests are included in my pictures. I think I'd get tired of looking at just my husband and I! I really can't say enough about the great work they do. I don't mind sharing my pictures with anyone who is interested in seeing them!

We found John because he shot a friend's wedding, and we loved loved loved the pictures. I found myself spending hours pouring over his online album. And then when we met him, he was so easy. And his expertise is as a former fashion photographer, whose friends eventually convinced to shoot weddings (hope I have that story correct!). We have only posted a few photos (yes, we got them back in 10 days, although granted we were before peak wedding season started) and the feedback is incredible. Would use John again in a heartbeat.

John Barone is the best! From the first meeting with him all the way through receiving our photos, he was prompt and helpful. His laid back attitude was prefect for our wedding day. He got the job done perfectly without being over-bearing. We barely noticed him during the reception. The B+W fashion shots were a hit with our guests and turned out great! On top of all of this, he got our wedding photos to us THURSDAY after our Saturday wedding! No one I told that to believed me! He truly has an artistic eye for beautiful shots. His partner that day was Patl, who was excellent as well. I highly recommend him to every bride I know!

Wow, John and Kate from John Barone Photography were the perfect photographers for our wedding! From our first meeting John was professional, fun and great to work with. They have such a laid back, yet confident style that made my, my husband and family's day stress-free knowing that we will have great photos at the end. Our teaser photos look fabulous, and I can't wait to see the rest of our photos! Both John and Kate were able to easily adapt to the many personalities in our bridal party, including our flower girls and ring bearer.

Wow, John and Kate from John Barone Photography were the perfect photographers for our wedding! From our first meeting John was professional, fun and great to work with. They have such a laid back, yet confident style that made my, my husband and family's day stress-free knowing that we will have great photos at the end. Our teaser photos look fabulous, and I can't wait to see the rest of our photos! Both John and Kate were able to easily adapt to the many personalities in our bridal party, including our flower girls and ring bearer.

John was such an amazing photographer! He really spent the time getting to know us, our venue and what we really wanted to capture on our special day. He was so personable and a true joy to be around. I loved having him around me as a bride, he is so calming and such a pleasure to be around. Especially on the day of. He and his team are so organized, there are no concerns if your wedding is in his hands. The black/white photo studio was a huge success!! Friends and family are using those pics for holiday cards, Facebook profiles and frames in their homes. We are so thrilled with Johns work and continue to get major compliments on our photos even months later. Thanks John for capturing every beautiful, loving moment of wedding day!!!

John has been an amazing addition to our wedding! We love his laid back and artistic style. John's background in fashion photography adds a unique touch to the photos that we couldn't find anywhere else. During our engagement photo session, John was very creative while he directed us, and yet, he wasn't overbearing. He made us feel comfortable and we knew the picture would come out great, and they did! The three of us had a great time roaming Old City Philadelphia looking for the perfect shots. We are excited to continue to work with John and are looking forward to the amazing pictures on our wedding day! Thanks John!

• It is hard to put into words how we felt when we saw our wedding photos for the first time. We absolutely love our pictures and have received so many compliments on them. Everyone who sees the pictures is impressed by his work and his ability to capture the unique memories of the day. The black and white room was awesome! Our guests had so much fun with it. John and Doug are incredibly talented and professional. They have a special way of capturing the feeling of the day. John is laid back, prompt and easy to work with before, during and after the event. He made us all feel so comfortable throughout the day. His suggestions for places to take pictures were unbelievable and turned out to be some of our favorites! He has a great eye for taking pictures. We already have and will continue to highly recommend John Barone Photography! Jacqui & Virgil Taylor

Having John Barone as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding day. John (and Doug) were able to capture every funny, goofy, romantic, warm, hilarious, moment throughout the day. John is not just a vendor that you have to "deal" with throughout the day, he was fun to work with, and felt like another friend at the wedding that just happened to be taking beautiful pictures. Everyone at the wedding raved about how wonderful it was to have John and Doug around.

John was worth every penny. All the guests continue to talk about how neat the black and white photos turned out. He was there from start to finish, which helped all of the bridesmaids/groomsman and guests get comfortable. Also, in less than two weeks I had all of my pictures!

John's work is unbeatable. He exemplefies professionalism and talent. A bride would be crazy if she didn't choose John Barone.

Ken and I were married on June 16, 2011. Doug and John of John Barone Photography were absolutely wonderful to work with on the day of our wedding. They were professional, fun and thought to take pictures I would have never thought of. Now that the wedding is over, there is one thing that will stay with you: THE PICTURES. I look at our photographs almost everyday. People are blown away when they see them! Doug and John captured such moments as when Ken and I first saw each other. John took pictures of my jewelry, shoes, dress, etc. like a high fashion shoot. When I see my wedding pictures, everything is EXACTLY the way I remember it. I feel the same emotions that I did on my wedding day when I look at a photograph. And the most memorable was the "backdrop portraits" where our guests were having a great time getting their pictures taken. John Barone Photography is the way to go for high-end photography at a relatively inexpensive price.

I booked Barone Photography for my wedding on 04/30/2011. This photographer was everything I wanted and more. They were great in ironing out the details before the wedding. On the wedding day, they arrived on time and were there for everything throughout the day without being intrusive. I was really pleased with their professionalism, and they seemed very happy and interested in what they were doing. The portrait sets were a real nice touch, this was a great way to take some pictures with family and friends and to have some pictures of people we really didn't get time to visit with. This really was the perfect experience, I would recommend Barone Photography to anyone!

We decided to hire John Barone after he did a remarkable job at my sisters wedding. Prior to her wedding, my sister was continuously talking about her photographer and how excited she was. Let me tell you, she was right. John was incredible from the moment we booked him and we knew that his background in photography was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer for our wedding day. John and his team were on time, efficient, organized, and calming! John was a part of the family the entire day and helped Joe and I every step of the way. The backdrop was a hit at the reception, and the pictures from it are unforgettable.

The value of his packages are insanely reasonable for someone of his professional caliber. As my sister also mentioned, I to hope to work with John again in the future....he helped us to create some beautiful memories.

Thank you guys for being so amazing and giving us wedding photographs far beyond our expectations!!!

From my first conversation with John months before the big day, I knew my wedding memories were in good hands. He has a comforting way about him that brings a sense of calm during a very stressful time (such as planning an enitre wedding!) John had every move of the big day planned with percision, down to who was going to be in what formal pics and when. The day of the wedding, from the salon to the close of the reception my self and my guests felt like rock stars and royality with the cameras everywhere, capturing our every move. I absolutly adore my photos. John was able to capture the feeling in every single one. I cherish the quiet moments that he was able to capture as well. My wedding photos truely tell our story, I can not thank John Barone photography enough. Overall rating 10+++++++++

He was able to capture every moment and nothing was missed! So happy with my May 2010 wedding photos!

I HIGHLY recommend John and would love to work with him again.

John was absolutely fantastic and so much fun on our wedding day. We did not want to spend too much time on formal shots as we had a large wedding party and large families. We did not want to miss out on the fun due to taking 1000 different formal shots. John listened to our requests and got the formals we needed and then just captured the rest of the day. My favorite shots ended up being those with the black backgrounds and the candids John took. It was like we were back at the church and reception when looking at the pictures. We have some fantastic photos from our day and I cannot recommend John enough!

John shot our wedding for October 2009, and also for my sister's wedding in November 2010. I don't know where to begin - he rocks!

First, let me say that John was incredibly accommodating the entire step of the way. 6 months before my wedding, my Dad had a severe stroke. We thought of canceling the wedding...my parents could no longer help us pay for it and my husband and I did not know how we were going to pull it off. I went to John and he was so wonderful. He did not want me to sacrifice our photos, he asked me what we COULD pay, and we went with that... but we got everything we wanted initially. After the wedding, he said how glad he was to be apart of that day...it was so emotional (my Dad walking me down the aisle) and he was glad to be there to capture it.

Capture it he did... my wedding pictures are AMAZING. We were so thrilled with the experience that my sister booked John for her wedding the following year. Again, it was a day full of emotion and having John around is just like having a friend. It was a good time, with no stress added by him...I've been in a lot of weddings where the photographer dictates the day, and John is the complete opposite, yet he manages to capture almost EVERY moment.

I recommend John to every newly engaged couple looking for a great non-traditional photographer. I look forward to using him again some day! Perhaps a "bump" shoot in the future! :)

I knew at hello and a flash I HAD to have John and Pat at my wedding. Enough said!!! They have a way of making you feel like you've been buds forever. Capturing moments that are dreamed about without noticing they are even there. An amazing eye for those special and/or hilarious moments. Friends and family enjoyed them so much that Barone Photo became regular guests at weddings I attended for 2 years, including my own. 5 years later and I still use John for special occasions. For my husband's 30th birthday, I surprised him with an album from my bourdoir session with John. I'm an athletic person who never believed sexy was an adjective to describe me. However, I felt like the prettiest girl in the world and felt more comfortable with my body than I had imagined. It's been 7 months and my husband still has the album on his night stand. Barone Photo makes dreams come true and allows you to relive your special day over and over!!

John is a great photo journalistic photographer. He has captured so many great moments of my wedding day, all the emotions and activities, especially the church ceremony; moments that I get to enjoy them over and over again, especially since that day is such a blur to me, I hardly remember what happen or be fully present all of the time. Thanks to John I can relive them through the images that he captured for me from the dressing up with the girls in the morning to ending in singing america the beautiful drunkenly with sparklers.

We were so happy with John Barone Photography for our wedding. We recently received the pictures and are thrilled with how much is captured. Pat and Aileen shot our wedding - they were super laid back and fun. We felt so comfortable with them and not once did they make us do anything we'd consider "cheesy." Their pictures tell that story perfectly - they capture just how happy that day. John did all the editing of the pictures and we couldn't be happier. They are absolutely gorgeous. We love that he gave us the rights to the pictures, so we can get them printed at our leisure. We certainly had priced out cheaper photographers, but we found that you truly do get what you pay for. The quality of pictures we got is priceless and we'll have these pictures for a lifetime. Thank you to John, Pat, and Aileen for creating such a masterpiece for us!

I was most excited for John Barone to attend my wedding for two reasons: he's so much fun and he takes amazing photos. We used John for our engagement photos and he really took the time to get to know my husband and I as a couple and designed a shoot that described the two of us beautifully. On my wedding day, he was extremely adventurous and came up with some completely out of the box pictures. I cannot wait to see them! Also- John's version of a photobooth was a huge hit at the wedding. The guests seemed to like doing silly shoots with John rather than dance! John and Pat make an excellent team and are so much fun to hang out with on your wedding day. So many parts of your wedding day become so stressful to coordinate- but I assure you that you will have no worries hiring John. He was one of the only parts of my wedding day that was completely stress-free. You will not regret hiring John to shoot your special day!

John and his second photographer did a fabulous job on our wedding! John was very responsive throughout the months leading up to the date (he even took the time to send out a quick email while he was on vacation). We booked him for an engagment shoot also, which was a great opportunity to get to know him and feel comfortable being photographed. On the wedding day both John and the second shooter were extremely professional and friendly, had great ideas for shots and were also open to suggestions. They were unobtrusive throughout the event but also ever-present to photograph important moments. I definitely would not hesistate to recommend John Barone Photography!!

John was the photographer for my best friend's wedding five years ago, and we loved his work so much my husband and I knew he was the obvious choice for our wedding. We particularly loved the black backdrop photos which all of the guests adore and is a classy, professional alternative to a photobooth (makes great gifts too!). Our wedding was at a strict church and the reception was at a unique venue that added difficulty to his job, but John was very flexible and found a way to achieve everything we hoped for! It also poured all evening and John and his team made the most of it. The grooms side had a blast with his assistant Eileen too. We can't wait to see the results!

From the moment that we met John, roughly a year before our wedding, we knew that he was the right guy for us. We had met 4 photographers prior and while they were all talented and we knew they would be great, something about John was different.

His background in fashion photography was a real sell for me, because it gave me confidence that he would pay attention to all the details of the day. It was important to me that the little things were captured: the texture of the dress, the jewelry of the bridesmaids, the stained glass windows in the church and the looks on our parents faces. I knew that his experience would have given him a keen eye for this and it was a bif factor in our decision.

John is a very busy guy but he was always quick to respond to us when we had questions or needed to chat on the phone. He really blended into our day perfectly and while we do not have our photos yet, we just know that they will be great.

John is a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone for their big day!

John has done a number of my friends weddings so I was familiar with him and his work. He's easy to talk to and has a great eye. My husband and I were thrilled when the photos were finished! They were beautiful and I highly recommend working with him!
