I can not recommend Arol enough, he is the sweetest and most professional photographer. You will be doing yourself a great disservice by hiring anyone besides him.

Every detail I wanted Arol to capture was shot and he really took the time to capture so many special moments of my husband and I. It really helped that he had a second photographer with him so no precious moments worth capturing were missed. Another thing I really enjoyed about Arol was his professionalism and his responsiveness. He always got back to me in such a timely manner and it's hard to experience that these days! I already miss everything about the wedding and I hope we will have another reason down the road to work with Arol again. Arol- thank you again!!

Arol is true professional through and through. He is not your typical wedding photographer. Yes, he will get your shot list, but he thrives on candids and capturing the true essence of the day. We could not be more happy with the final results....
And to add in his efficiency on site, quick turn around post wedding and all-around positive attitude, it made for a truly rewarding experience.
To equate it to sports, it was like he took our shot list and important moments and made a playbook out of them. He came on site with a game plan that he executed flawlessly. Our entire wedding party commented about how efficiently he moved from shot to shot and how friendly, yet direct, he was in adjusting each part of the shot. Even guests came up to us during the reception making comments.
If you are looking for photos that are unique, candid and truly capture your day, Arol is your guy.

He got some very creative shots, including some great ones of my husband, me, and our dog. I would (and have!) recommended Arol to everyone. For one guy, he covered our wedding incredibly well. Everyone was photographed and looking back at our pictures, we can relive the whole day in great detail. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Arol!

We made the easy...
decision to book him for our engagement pictures and wedding day right away. Although my husband and I are EXTREMELY camera shy and absolutely dislike taking pictures, it was very important that everything be perfectly captured at our engagement session and wedding.
Arol not only made us feel at ease, he selected the most beautiful backdrop (camp Ben) for our engagement pictures. It was exactly what I’d pictured and expressed to him.
Our wedding day pictures...I don’t even have the words to accurately describe what an exceptional job Arol did at capturing our wedding day. Even our family, friends, and co-workers were blown away by our pictures!
He has a very special eye and technique, that allows him to capture so many emotions and gorgeous images so perfectly. I found myself laughing, crying, and feeling smitten as I went through our pictures. I was finally able to put together the events of our wedding day which had been a total blur up to that point.
Arol surpassed our expectations and we were so lucky he was available to capture these special moments. Im not sure we could ever thank him enough for delivering such flawless photography on both of these special occasions!

il. Arol was already at the venue when we arrived, and because he is familiar with the people there as well as the policies, he smoothly guided us through the process. Because we are not a young couple and this was not our first wedding, we wanted it to be very intimate (only 3 guests plus my very well-dressed dog) but still very beautiful and meaningful, and having a photographer who understood this allowed us to relax. Arol was very patient with and attentive to my dog, and captured his personality perfectly, including several shots just of him. While his ideas were professional and trendy, he was very open to the particular shots I wanted and very quick to set them up and shoot them. We never once felt like our small wedding was less important to him than the larger events he routinely photographs. We received access to our personal gallery exactly when promised and found it easy to navigate. I was pleasantly surprised to find each photograph in both color and black and white, which is so elegant. We wholeheartedly recommend AJH Photography for Arol's professionalism, incredible photography skills, integrity, and especially his sincere desire to provide customer satisfaction. He was a pleasure to work with, and our wedding pictures are beautiful.

lar, is picky about photography but 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.

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 found that working with Arol was easy, fun, and stress free. He took the guess work out of everything and also communicated with us when changes needed to be made, etc.
The day of the wedding could not have gone better, we owe a lot of that to Arol, he stuck to the schedule and made everything run extremely fast and efficient. He is so kind and makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera.
We just got back out photos and we are obsessed with every single picture. There isn't one that we didn't love.
If you don't hire Arol to photograph your wedding, you are SERIOUSLY missing out.
Thanks so much Arol!

Arol was a total professional and our wedding photos were out of a storybook! Arol was always quick to respond to any questions that we had. I would recommend him to any bride that wants more then "run of the mill" photos. We are very happy!

I barely knew AJ was there on my wedding day, which sounds like a bad thing, but the photos he took were absolutely outstanding!
He arrived just before the time we'd discussed, he pulled me aside for some quick portraits, visited my gorgeou...
s bride and got at least one photo of everyone at our wedding as if he'd been a fly on the wall.
AJ has a knack for capturing who a person is in his photos instead of just their presence in front of the camera. He gets their personalities, moods, and everything else about them.
After a short bit, the guests and I made our way to the location for the ceremony overlooking Canyon Lake, TX. Next thing I know, I'm watching my wife-to-be walking towards me and everything else went by in a flash. I honestly cannot recall seeing AJ at any point during the ceremony, but his photos covered all angles and he was able to capture every ounce of emotion in my wife, in me, and in our guests!
Just after the ceremony, my wife and I walked down to the shore line with AJ to get some portraits made with the lake and the sunset in all its glory. We made use of some Flash Composites, a technique that AJ is well versed in, and we got some awesome naturally lighted portraits as well.
We wrapped up quickly and got up to our guests for some family portraits. By this time it was getting very dark, and AJ had to use off camera lighting to get these done. They came out perfect!
Bottom line, if anyone is looking for a wedding photographer whom has a passion for creating beautiful imagery and a telling story line of the moments that make up your wedding day, AJ is the right photographer for the job. He is a master at what he does and you'll have and amazing collection of imagery to look back at for years to come!

Looking for a wedding photographer is tedious and it was one of the two things I had to find on my own because my venue was mostly all inclusive. We interviewed a few and most were duds so when we interviewed Arol we were relieved! My husband a...
nd I love the artsy feel behind his photos and were sold immediately! We were married on October 4th of this year and have been blown away with our wedding photos so far! Everything from the initial meet and greet to the day of the wedding was laid back and smooth which is nice being the bride. I would and will recommend Arol to anyone AJH photography is awesome!

I used AJH for my wedding photography and I am very pleased with the outcome. We had not met before the big day, but he was very professional and directed me for the pictures, which made it easy in the chaos of wedding time! He covered the arra...
y of photographs I wanted and even pulled us aside for unique pictures that he came up with, such as a full moon silhouette! I was very happy about the large quantity of pictures I received, some were only with very slight differences but I liked that everything was included for me to choose my preference from. The wedding blog was up within a couple days, which I loved seeing as a preview of my pictures. I would definitely use AJH again!
