My background is fashion and editorial photography for magazine clients like Philadelphia Magazine to more commercial clients like Urban Outfitters.

If you are looking for a photographer who makes you feel comfortable, makes things fun, and most importantly cares about getting amazing photos for your wedding, then look no further! John is one-of-a-kind and in a spectacular way. We did the engagement session with John first and it felt like a fun day hanging out with a friend, who also happens to be super talented. That made the wedding day that much more comfortable because we already had spent some time with him. Honestly, he and Cara just felt like part of the family on the wedding day! We even had several family members and friends tell us how awesome they thought he was. John really cares about interesting, quality photos. His years of experience really were a huge help to us. I recommend taking him up on his suggestions because he really does know what he's doing =)! I know for us the pictures were the most important part of our wedding,and if you feel that way too, then trust me, you want John and his team taking your pictures. They won't be the standard, run-of-the-mill wedding pics...they'll be so much better! This was a decision we'd make again in a heartbeat! Thank you so so much for all you did for Don and I =)!

I met John through a friend of mine who used him for her wedding. I loved his work, personality, and professionalism. When I got engaged, we didn't even meet with other photographers, I knew I wanted John. The morning of my wedding, I called John and asked him his opinion for our "first look". He scouted locations, and I trusted his instinct- I didn't ask questions, I knew it would be great. He found the perfect spot for a beautiful first look overlooking the beach, and a few fun spots as well. I applaud John for going with his gut, and telling it how it is. Sometimes us brides have an image or idea in our head, but forget that they are the expert. I initially didn't want to go on the beach and get sandy (diva!). John politely said, "ok but I would hate for us to take all these pictures and you look back and wish you had some on the beach". He was so right, and looking back now I LOVE the beach photos.

I couldn't have asked for a better crew to guide us through the day. John and Kyle were our #dreamteam. I got my pictures back quick and they are incredible. I couldn't be happier. If you are on the fence about hiring John, think no more- he will help make your wedding day perfect and you will have a ton of fun with them in the process.

John was great to work with. He was extremely professional and made sure everything ran very smoothly the day of the wedding. He is creative and always looking to try new ideas, which led to some great shots. The black and white fashion photo set at the reception was one of my favorite parts and the guests loved it as well. I would definitely recommend Barone Photography to anyone in the market for a wedding photographer!

I spotted John's work before I was even engaged when he photographed my friend's wedding and I made a mental note to keep him in the back of my mind for when I would get married! Some people thought I was nuts to fly him to my destination wedding in New Orleans since John is based in Philadelphia, but I knew from his previous work that no photographer in New Orleans could top him! I joked with John in the planning process that him and I were like two peas and pod; both very detailed-oriented individuals who like to plan well ahead. John not only over-delivered with his photography, he eased any concerns I had because he was always two steps ahead of me. From scouting the venue location and our hotel days ahead to map out where to take the first look and formal shots to providing a step by step timeline for the big day so nothing would be overlooked John blew me away with his level of professionalism. He captured the true essence of our wedding day in his photos. Every time I look through my albums it's like a walk back down memory lane; I can feel all the emotions all over again by the way he was able to capture our little fun gestures and nuances and all the energy from our loved ones. John is the real deal and his work speaks for itself.

John wins. He did it all and it was perfect. We had John shoot our wedding in Key West this past Spring. So in addition to dealing with the usual stress and chaos of wedding logistics, we also had to figure out the whole destination thing. Using John made the photography portion of the planning an absolute breeze. He was extremely easy to work with, extraordinarily professional yet down to earth, highly knowledgable, and a master of his trade. Hands down the best of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding. We're both beaming with joy at the quality of the end product (aka the photos). Top notch quality, very quick turnaround time, excellent variety of shots taken. We can't recommend him enough. Thank you John.

John is AMAZING. I booked him two and a half years out from our wedding after seeing some of his work online and meeting with him. Can I tell you he is the only vendor who tried to talk me down off purchasing too much! When does that happen?
We had a couple questions and John put us at ease instantly. Through out the whole process he kept us calm and we were able to put our trust in him. Trusting him and his process is the best thing you can do for yourself. HE KNOWS BEST! Believe me the pictures come out perfect. We were both nervous because neither one of us is particularly photogenic, but we knew the only thing you have left over from the wedding is its pictures. John was able to capture our true essence as a couple and I look as beautiful in the pictures as I felt on my wedding day.
I received the pictures back after only two months! That is unheard of when you get married in November! John makes everything available to you in a user friendly way, which allows you to purchase prints anyway you want them.
He is a true wedding expert! He even was able to re-direct the bridesmaids on how to fix a bust issue when they put me in my gown. He made the whole bridal party feel relaxed and natural when taking pictures. I was blown away by his work and how he captured the venue....it was his first time there.
I can not say enough good things about John! Look at his work and then do the right thing and book him ASAP! You will not be disappointed.

18 months of wedding planning, 10 of our best friends in our wedding party, 5 hours to celebrate the best days of our lives and ONE AMAZING photographer to capture it forever. We cannot say enough about how amazing John is and his work speaks for itself. For a moment that felt like it lasted 5 minutes, John was able to capture hundreds of pictures that capture our wedding day so beautifully. John’s creativity in capturing the personal moments through our engagement and marriage are something we will never forget – and cannot because of the amazing photos that we have forever solidifying these moments. Throughout our planning process, John was a great guide in how to plan our “big day” and we were extremely happy that we let this “expert” suggest to us the best ideas for our pictures which we cannot stop drooling over!

We would highly recommend John for any couple that is looking to capture the best day of their lives in unique, timeless, and creative ways. There is not one picture that John and his team captured from our engagement and wedding that we do not love – our only issue was deciding which ones we loved the most!

Very happy we had John capture our wedding day. I could write a lengthy review, but I think just by looking at John and his teams pictures will do enough justice of why you should book JBP for your wedding..that is what sold my husband and I to book them for ours. He was great to work with too-he replies quickly to any questions you have. Also, be sure to book him as soon as you secure your venue because he books fast(we booked him 2 1/2 years in advance). Thanks again for everything John.

John Barone was one of the best investments that we made for our wedding. He is the definition of a true professional and from the moment we met him and saw his work, we knew that we wanted him to photograph our wedding. He had come highly recommended from a close friend and her pictures were absolutely stunning, as were ours. Our friends have commented that our engagement and wedding photos are some of the most beautiful, unique wedding photos that they have EVER seen. For what you get, I found his price to be reasonable - he is literally ONE of a kind and honestly, you can't put a price on his awesomeness. You also get a black and white photo shoot (included) for your guests at the wedding reception and these photos are some of my most FAVORITE photos from the entire wedding. John is a true photographer ninja - I don't even know how he got some of the shots from both of our shoots. He is commonly seen lying in the middle of the road, hanging from a tree branch, crawling into tiny spaces...anything to get the perfect shot. We were happy to go along with his requests for breaking into a chicken coop, frolicking through a soy field and splashing through streams. John makes it fun - he's easygoing, but knows how to push the boundaries when needed to get the perfect photo. He also managed to make two very doofy people look pretty amazing (if we do say so ourselves), which is not an easy feat based on previous photos that have been taken of us throughout our relationship. We can't thank him enough for all of his amazing work that we will treasure for years to come.

He had come highly recommended from a close friend and her pictures were absolutely stunning, as were ours. Our friends have commented that our engagement and wedding photos are some of the most beautiful, unique wedding photos that they have EVER seen. For what you get, I found his price to be reasonable - he is literally ONE of a kind and honestly, you can't put a price on his awesomeness. You also get a black and white photo shoot (included) for your guests at the wedding reception and these photos are some of my most FAVORITE photos from the entire wedding. John is a true photographer ninja - I don't even know how he got some of the shots from both of our shoots. He is commonly seen lying in the middle of the road, hanging from a tree branch, crawling into tiny spaces...anything to get the perfect shot. We were happy to go along with his requests for breaking into a chicken coop, frolicking through a soy field and splashing through streams. John makes it fun - he's easygoing, but knows how to push the boundaries when needed to get the perfect photo. He also managed to make two very doofy people look pretty amazing (if we do say so ourselves), which is not an easy feat based on previous photos that have been taken of us throughout our relationship. We can't thank him enough for all of his amazing work that we will treasure for years to come. Read less
