  • My Husband and I just received our weddings from John and Lovina Arcara and to say we are THRILLED with them is an understatement (More like in LOVE). John is not just another wedding photographer. He makes you feel comfortable, lightens the wedding day mood with his Great personality and can turn any chaotic wedding party photo into a MASTER Piece. My Grandmother also can't stop talking about how great he and how much she loved him! My husband and I are so happy we chose John Arcara Photography for our big day!! :)

  • I loved working with John and his team, including his daughter! They did a fabulous job and our photos are gorgeous! John is very friendly and easy-going which is great when dealing with wedding stress. John has great ideas for different shots and backgrounds and I think a lot of our pictures are very unique and creative. He and his team also captured amazing candid shots of my husband and I laughing and those are some of my favorite shots!

  • John Arcara and his team of photographers were incredible in recording our Wedding Day. They were so easy to work with and planned ahead for all of the shots that we knew we wanted included during the day. They were unobtrusive and were able to capture everything we wanted about our special day with our family and friends. They made us feel special and look amazing. They captured all of the perfect scenes and backgrounds we could have asked for at our venue, the Mill. It was totally worth it to make sure we had all of the memories captured and the shots they took of us and our party were unbelievable. Their personalities were not overbearing and they constantly asked us how we felt and gave easy to follow instructions. We would absolutely recommend having John Arcara Photography capture your special day!

  • John Arcara, Rich, and Mark Conte were quite the photographers/filmmakers. The three together did not miss a thing at my daughter, Rachael, and her new husband, Adam’s, wedding (6-16-19). They made us all feel relaxed and made every part of the photography aspect go seamless. Every person’s pictures came out perfect. One photo is more gorgeous than the next! Not sure how they are going to be able to select her favorites for her photo album. I would recommend John Arcara for any event! Thank you for making our daughter’s wedding so magical.

  • What a blessing it was to have John and his team capturing our engagement/wedding. He made the process so easy, comfortable and fun. He has the best energy that is contagious and so helpful. He made me feel so special. He knew all the right places for pictures, also open to anything I suggested too. I had a big bridal party w/different personalities and he handled all of us swiftly and effortlessly. During the reception you barely even knew his team was around, allowing us to be natural and enjoy our night, which are the best shots. He really gets in there, I laugh because in one video he is in, John reminded me of a gun slinger, cameras hanging all over him and using one camera, dropping it and with lightening speed grabbing another. Our SDE was so beautiful, along with all of the photos from the day/night showing on the screens during the reception. John knows what he is doing and is so passionate that he inspires you!! BEST decision I made having him manage one of the most important... Read more

  • John is seriously the best!! We initially had a different photographer, but didn't click with the first person, so we found John through our venue and I am SO happy we did! My husband and I instantly clicked with John; his creative nature and outgoing personality makes him so easy to get along with. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, he always had different poses and direction for us, all the while making us laugh and smile. He was always available to us, and even took the time to speak to my mom about a few questions she had - but I always knew I could text or email him and he would get back to me ASAP. We also had our wedding video done by John's company, and it turned out amazing! Both the short and long videos are perfect; and when I had a small request to add in a couple of extra moments to our long video, John made it happen. Overall I would (and will) highly recommend John Arcara Photography to anyone and everyone!! Thank you so much for capturing our perfect day John... Read more

  • We could not be happier that we chose to use John to capture our wedding day! Photography was one of the most difficult vendors to choose because we felt like we weren't comparing apples to apples when looking at one vendor vs. another. The price, number of photographers, number of hours, album prices etc. were to all be considered. John checked off every box on paper but after we met with him, we were further sold! His upbeat personality is infectious and he is even more talented! We had never taken professional photos before and were a little anxious before taking our engagement photos. John made us laugh throughout the entire shoot and every photo is more beautiful than the next! During our wedding, he had that same upbeat personality and made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. It was comforting that he had worked at our venue, Bonnet Island Estate, many times before. Thanks to his knowledge of the estate and property we were able to take our photos rather quickly ...

  • John Arcara went above and beyond for our engagement session and wedding photography. He knows what he's doing and is the consummate professional when it comes to his craft. His upbeat personality lends itself to getting people comfortable and smiling, especially on a busy and stressful and emotional day. He is very responsive, and has become more of a friend than a wedding vendor to us. The price tag will be higher than normal, but you get what you pay for. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

  • 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 ... Read more

I truly feel blessed that you chose us & we thank you dearly for having us be a part of your family. I am so thrilled that you liked what we do. Congratulations again and may God Bless you & your amazing family, including Ken on all you have in store for the future. John & Lovina

  • 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 te... Read more

  • John was absolutely fantistic to talk to when I initially booked his studio and very helpful. I chose to work with Scott the day of my wedding and he was awesome. He really understood what I wanted and the nontraditional vibe I was going for. I loved that he was basically on the ground trying to get my dog used to the camera sound since he was scared at first. He went above and beyond. And the secondary photographer he brought with him was fabulous as well. The pictures I've seen so far are incredible. I wouldn't recommend anyone else but this studio!

  • We used John Arcara for photography and videography for my daughter's wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau. Not only was he very familiar with every nook and cranny of the place so he could take the best shots, he photographed the men in a totally different section of the Chateau while the ladies were running a bit late in hair and make-up. Although we haven't received the pictures and video yet, it's only been a few days, I can tell any future couple that you should totally hire this company. John is so relaxed and joyful and tries to keep everyone happy and calm with his demeanor. He was joking with everyone, MOB, hair stylists, etc. We had a lot of family members there for the before pictures and he literally got them all done in less than 10 minutes. We didn't even notice John or the videographer during the outside ceremony or really any time unless we wanted a certain shot on the dance floor and he was already there. I'm sure we're going to love everything and I would highly and de... Read more
