About 4 years ago I got to see Leon Bridges in a venue with about 12 people. This was before he was selling out arenas, showing up on Grammy red carpets, and getting covers on Rolling Stone magazine. This is how I feel about Arol. He is so above and beyond talented, and should... Read More (and probably will soon) be doing the weddings of celebrities and royalty. If you know anything about photography, you don't need to read this review, because a few seconds on his website and you'll see that he's in a different league than the rest, and you've probably already booked him. Even without knowing much about photography, you'll still be able to feel his photos with your heart, and not just see them with your eyes. This is because he puts his heart into his craft. Something that websites also can't describe is personality. From the moment I met Arol I felt great. He has this happiness and passion that is truly contagious, and had he not been at my wedding taking photos, I would have wanted him there as a guest. He has so much fun taking the photos, and we all see and feel that, and it makes all of the photos that much better - because we were all happy to take them because he was behind the camera. Do yourself a favor and book him before he's too famous and too expensive for any of us to afford. He is without a doubt the best in the business, and by hiring him you will see this like we did.

I would hire Arol Horkavy again & again based on the fact that his photos are absolutely incredible & stunning. I can be quite picky with photos & how I look in photos, but Arol 100% satisfied everything I hoped for in our wedding photos!!! Our wedding portraits are AMAZING &... Read More he somehow was able to capture all of the special moments from our entire day. Arol made the whole experience really fun & his candid shots are unreal! We have so many awesome photos of our friends & family laughing with the best facial expressions, dancing & enjoying themselves & he captured such sweet moments between my husband & I without ever making us feel like we had a camera in our face. He made my husband Jol & I feel so comfortable around him & that says a lot because my husband isn’t always eager to have lots of photos taken of himself. When I look through our wedding photos it’s like reliving the day because you can feel the emotion & special experience come through the photos. I placed A LOT of importance & effort into making sure we chose the right wedding photographer & we definitely made the right decision with Arol. We had the very difficult task of planning a Texas wedding while currently living overseas in Australia. Arol went above & beyond helping out with anything I needed. He was always quick to respond to emails (even with the crazy time difference of Texas vs. Australia) & he really put in a lot of effort to get to know Jol & I as a couple & understand what we were looking for with our wedding photos. And he was happy to help recommend other wedding vendors, general wedding tips, & he even helped me find a place to buy sparklers for our grand exit after I realized the day before our wedding that I somehow had forgotten to buy the sparklers! Wedding planning can be SO stressful, but with Arol you can relax & know that you will be very happy with your wedding photos & your experience with your wedding photographer. He's awesome!!!

Arol did an AMAZING job photographing our wedding! I booked him for my wedding after meeting him and seeing his work at an open house event and being very impressed. Arol was friendly with a contagious smile and his passion for his work was easy to see! Working with Arol on our... Read More wedding day was comfortable and fun. I’ve seen wedding photographers that seem to have a lot of downtime, standing in the corner waiting for the next event to capture. Not Arol! The many candid photos that he took throughout the day were some of my favorites. The photos are simply STUNNING! The effort he puts into getting the shots and the editing is what sets Arol apart from other photographers. The whole experience from the wedding day to receiving the finished product far exceeded our expectations!

I could not be happier with our photos. I wanted mostly candids, photojournalistic style, and that is exactly what we got. I asked for A TON of posed family photos before and he worked through them like a champ! He makes you feel so comfortable. I have worked with a lot of... Read More photographers and sometimes their ego can get in the way but that is not the case at all with Arol. He is so personable and professional at the same time. My mother is particularly critical of people and she even commented that he was by far the best vendor and even helped with moving a heater for her which is clearly not his job. He captured a lot of great photos of our guests, too, which I love being able to share with them. I could not recommend him more highly!

We knew pretty quickly after we started researching wedding photographers that we loved the look of Arol’s pictures -- the rich colors and the way he uses light is just so beautiful and beats the typical washed out wedding pictures we saw on many other photographers websites.... Read More We did engagement photos with him about 7 months before the wedding. He was very easy to work with and made us immediately feel like we were his friends. He gave us lots of great direction. The pictures were amazing! This made us very excited to work with him for our wedding! Plus, these shots were very useful as we made our save the dates and other wedding stationery. We even had several printed and framed to use as decorations at the wedding. On our wedding day, Arol did a great job of picking out great locations for our first look and post-ceremony portraits, and these are some of my favorite shots we have. He was very good at blending in with everything going on and we enjoyed our day without feeling like a photographer was following us around everywhere. We just got back our wedding photos a few weeks ago now and we are thrilled with how they came out. We have over 1000 beautiful images to choose from to make our albums! We have received lots of compliments as well from friends and family viewing our pictures, with many asking how we found such a great photographer! Hiring Arol was a great choice for our wedding.

We picked AJH Photography because we wanted someone who could not only take great photos, but someone who could do really well with the dimmer lighting from an evening ceremony/reception. Arol did not disappoint! He was fun, professional, and very efficient....especially when it... Read More came to directing our (slightly disorganized) many family photos we requested.

Looking forward to working with you again soon. ~Ashley & David Garvin

Arol was one of our favorite vendors we worked with during our wedding planning process. He was also one of the first vendors we booked, second only to the venue itself. We knew immediately that we wanted to book him (my now-husband, in particular, is picky about photography but... Read More flipped through one of Arol's albums at the venue - since he's the preferred photographer of our venue, another testament to his work - and said "This guy is amazing"). I can't talk enough about his 1) friendliness, 2) professionalism, and 3) photography skills. Like I said before, Arol is one of our favorite vendors to work with. He always responds promptly to emails (and I've had experiences where vendors take weeks...NOT Arol. Give him a day, max!) and has no problem talking to you over the phone and answering all of your questions (I had many! And he was so patient). His friendliness and easygoing attitude puts you at ease. But he's also so, so professional. For example, he told me I'd receive my photos within 6-8 weeks...well, I got them by week 5. Under promise, over deliver! And, of course, his photography skills are unparalleled. I appreciate that he does a mix of posed shots, candid shots, B/W, color, the whole gamut. He also has you fill out an informative shot sheet prior to the wedding so that you can articulate any particular shots you want and any other details he needs to know. I was extremely impressed by this thorough and excellent preparation. But anyway, back to his photography...the price is on the higher side, yes, but it is worth the splurge and is extremely fair for the quality AND sheer quantity of photos he provides you. Trust me, we were pinching pennies but AJH Photography was one investment we correctly believed was worth the price. I was impressed not only by how beautiful my photos were, but also by how many he provided. So many candids of my guests, as well as the posed family shots we'll treasure for years to come. AND, you get all the rights to the photos, which we were pleasantly surprised with. You don't need to order prints through him - he gives you all of the photos for you to do with as you wish. For that, the price also makes this such a good investment. I highly recommend Arol, can't say enough good things about him, obviously.
