  • I don’t need to attest to John’s talent; his work speaks for itself. He will capture the best moments of your wedding, memorializing it better than you experienced it. But for me, it wasn’t just his talent that made our day special. It was so much fun to work with him and his team; they fit in seamlessly into our crew. But John was also more than my photographer. He was the big brother I needed. He was able to keep me in the moment instead of getting stuck on the hiccups of the day. I may still have beautiful pictures had I not chosen to work with him, but I know for 100% that our wedding would not have been as effortless and memorable as it was if it were not for him.

  • Working with John was the best choice we could have made for our wedding. He is so incredibly talented, and his work is stunning. We received so many comments throughout our wedding about the quality of his work and what a great eye he has, and our guests were so impressed with the final photos. His artistic perspective and what he's able to pull off is unparalleled. Both my husband and I are generally uncomfortable in front of the camera. Somehow, John made us both feel comfortable, and we ended up looking better than we could have imagined! In addition to his work being fantastic, he's a dream to work with. I was really unsure as to how any of this worked, and he walked me through the process and helped schedule out the day, so I had an idea of how the other vendors and logistics fit together. He was the one piece of my wedding that I never had to worry about. We're so grateful John was part of our special day and captured it so beautifully!

  • John and his team are the best in Philadelphia. They truly helped to make our wedding the special day it was meant to be. John and his team did all of the little things right. They were on time, very respectful and fun, and brought a great attitude throughout they day that only enhanced our experience. John and his team made myself, husband, bridal party, parents, and guests all feel comfortable during our formal pictures and Black and White fashion set. The Black and White fashion set photos are absolutely amazing and so fun to see all of our guests having fun and being creative with this set! Most importantly, John kept us on schedule throughout the day. Before our wedding day, John and I spoke multiple times about the timing for the wedding and he planned out our day perfectly to include all the photos and different locations I wanted. This may not sound important, but with so many moving pieces and people, it is easy to fall behind schedule. John, however, kept us true to the... Read more

  • John was the best photographer my husband and I could ask for. He was cool, down to earth and incredibly knowledgeable. We had to reschedule our wedding 3 times due to Covid and John worked with us the whole time. All of our bridal party had so much fun taking photos with John and his colleague Stewart. They even made sure to take my husband and I away from the reception to get some beautiful night time photos on the beach. Thank you so much John and Stewart!

  • My husband and I can't say enough positive things about John and his team. We found out about him at our friend's wedding, and absolutely adored the B&W photo session he provides for all guests - AMAZING QUALITY!! We weren't even engaged at that time and had decided we needed to have him for our future wedding. Luckily, about a year later we were able to! Engagement shoot was fun and lighthearted. I added on a boudoir shoot for a surprise for my husband on our wedding day - John was very comfortable to work with. Wedding day was timely, professional, and FUN. He gladly incorporated some quirks we wanted to add in (panda/bear heads, anyone?) and made the process seamless. I knew this was one area of the wedding I didn't have to stress over at all. 5 stars, would highly recommend.

  • John was the BEST hands down. I haven’t received my pictures back yet (my wedding was only two weeks ago) but i have no doubt they will be AMAZING. I needed to write a review on what a pleasure he is to work with. I found him through the knot and the reviews were not wrong, he is so good at what he does and is the perfect balance of chill, but also knows how to get sh*t done! Thank you John for making out wedding day stress free and fun!

  • John did my good friend's wedding 6 years before we got engaged, and he was my first call, since her photos turned out so amazing. John is extremely talented, cool as hell, and shot our wedding like a pro. The photos turned out amazing. My husband and I looked like super models. The photos were just spectacular, from catching all the emotions and special moments, but also mixing in some amazing shots that could easily be from a Vogue editorial. He's definitely type-A, but I consider that a good thing, because he kept us and everyone else on schedule. He was fun to hangout with in between all the craziness as well. Book him and you won't be disappointed! He is extremely affordable for what you get. My cousin/bridesmaid even hit it off with his second shooter, haha. He's experienced and really has an eye for amazing photography. He captured everything and helped our vision become a reality!

  • As soon I got engaged,I knew John just had to be my photographer there was no question about it! I have seen his work and immediately became obsessed (even before I was engaged). Ryan and I went and met with him at his house, and as soon as we left immediately both turned to each other and said he is our photographer! John's work is truly amazing and is with out a doubt the best photographer in the business!

  • We are so glad that we were able to book John as our wedding photographer. He’s a talented photographer and a great guy to have on your team during the entire wedding process. My husband and I planned our Philadelphia wedding from Los Angeles and John was helpful and easy to communicate with. He took our preferences into account, made his recommendations, and tried to accommodate us even when we were hoping for a lot to happen in a short amount of time. A week before our wedding, we did a pre-wedding/engagement shoot with John and it started pouring rain about five minutes into it. Since I was in my wedding dress that I needed to wear again in a week, getting soaked and muddy wasn’t a great option for us that day. John made the best of the location we were at and then was kind enough to drive us to some covered locations that he had shot at before. It was awesome that he had the experience and knowledge of the city to be able to think of several options on the spot and easily t... Read more

  • There are not enough positive things I can say about John and his team. From the day my husband and I met John, we felt so comfortable, immediately felt like he was our new best friend, and knew instantly he was the one to shoot our big day. Over the course of a year, John was there every step of the way, answering questions, and helping perfect the timeline for our wedding day. He also shot our engagement pictures, which were STUNNING. From that point on, I could not wait to see our wedding photos. John was always readily available via email or phone, discussing all minute details to make our day perfect, and that is exactly what it was... PERFECT! John and his team even stayed until the last minute of the wedding, ensuring they got every shot from the day! The black and white photo set was also a huge hit with our guests! If you have been searching for a wedding photographer, search no more! You have found your team!!! John, THANK YOU. We are so sad the day is over, but canno... Read more

  • John’s experience is evident from the first moment you meet with him. He makes sure to explain the process and options, gives suggestions and offers to help every step along the planning process. To top it off, he’s such a genuine person, so thoughtful and hilariously funny! The time and attention to detail throughout the entire process was exceptional. We just received our photos and they are AMAZING! My husband and I cannot stop looking at them! John and Anthony captured every moment of our wedding perfectly!

  • Working with John Barone Photography was a really great experience! As someone who likes to have a plan, I appreciated that John reached out to me early on in the wedding planning process to start putting together an itinerary for the day. With his help, the wedding day could not have gone smoother. We ended up an hour ahead of schedule! It's apparent that John puts a lot of thought and consideration into the different shots, and we really love how they turned out. We also really liked the B&W Fashion Set at the wedding, because we got some of our most goofy and fun shots at the reception! Overall, I couldn't recommend John Barone Photography more. He and his team were an integral part of the wedding's success.

  • John was such a pleasure to work with. We used him for both our engagement and wedding. He made everything so easy and FUN. We had such an amazing experience with him. My husband and I are so so happy we chose John and his team. He was worth every single penny. Honestly, in the beginning we were a little concerned about money BUT these are pictures you will cherish for a lifetime. You only get to do this once!! We are so sad it is all over because we really loved working with him so much. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. If you do not choose John as your photographer, you are missing out and you will regret it BIG TIME. Thank you so much John for creating so many wonderful memories with us. We loved working with you! Love, Amber & Jonathan

  • We had a great experience working with John. After seeing his photos online and meeting him in person, we knew he was the guy for us. He was easy to talk to, professional and we felt like he got us and what we were looking for. He shot our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier. He made everything so easy for us and even managed to make us look good :) His pictures speak for themselves and you get nothing but the best when you work with him.
