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!!!

We found Arol on the preferred vendor list that our venue Vista West gave us. We did a lot of research of photographers in Austin and every time we always came back wanting to pick Arol. He is the most knowledgeable that we spoke to not only about his own profession but... Read More questions we had about wedding planning in general! His pricing is very reasonable especially for the top-notch quality of pictures you get but also because you are also getting a photographer that you can contact any time with any question and he is more than happy to answer it. 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!
