Jonathan is one of those vendors that you hope stays in your life for years to come. He is funny, personable and incredibly energetic. He just gets it. He is a magician with the camera and knows how to get the exact mood in every shot.
What is perhaps one of the most impressive things is that his turnaround on our engagement photos was under 4 days. You normally hear horror stories of weeks and months but in his case it felt like a matter of hours.
The man is nothing short of a genius.

Our number one priority in choosing a photographer for our wedding was finding someone who could capture the important unscripted moments of the day, both big and small. We weren’t overly concerned with the posed shots of the two of us or of family or of pictures of decorations and the venue (although those turned out wonderful). Instead, we wanted the things that truly mattered: the look on my husband’s face as I walked down the aisle, my sister crying during her Maid of Honor toast, my dad trying to stay composed during our Father-Daughter dance, Matt’s grandparents embracing in an emotional hug. Jonathan Roberts of Bluephoto delivered. From the first time we talked on the phone, I knew Jonathan was the right choice for us. He is easy to talk to, extremely professional, honest and helpful in regards to helping the bride and groom put together their photography needs, and willing to do what the couple wants. On wedding day, he was courteous to our guests, efficient in taking family pictures (we got them all done before the ceremony!), unobtrusive to the events, and toward the end of the evening, a great dancer on the dance floor. The next morning, Matt and I woke up to a short video of our wedding set to music, and it somehow captured the feel of our wedding in a mere four minutes. We give Jonathan our highest recommendation, and we know that you will not be disappointed in selecting him.

Jonathan at Bluephoto was by far our best wedding decision! We knew immediately when we met him that he would be easy to work with and we felt comfortable with him every step of the way. Our engagement shoot was amazing and we quickly learned how much energy and genuine love for photography Jonathan has. On our wedding day, Jonathan worked so hard to get every important shot, was on his feet for over 10 hours capturing so many amazing moments and blended in so well that our family and wedding party felt immediately comfortable with him. He was present on the dancing floor, jumping around with all of so that he was able to get plenty of candid shots.

All of our guests raved not only about how awesome Jonathan was during the wedding and reception, but also for the wedding video that he was able to put together and post online for us the very next day! It was so special to be able to recap the night during our Sunday Brunch. What an amazing snapshot of our wedding the video was!

As if that wasn’t enough to make us love Jonathan, he was able to get our entire wedding album up just one week after our wedding!!! I have had so many compliments about his work from guests and people who have seen the photos. We are so happy with all of the images and can’t wait to start printing some up! Our photographs are timeless – the quality we were most looking for in our wedding photography and the style will last us a lifetime. We highly recommend Jonathan for his impeccable service, passion and skill.

Jonathan Roberts of Bluephoto is simply brilliant. Five stars isn't enough. Jonathan just goes above and beyond. My husband and I just got married last month at Santa Margarita Ranch and Jonathan was our photographer. We found him online while researching SMR and quickly fell in love with his work. Photography was my #1 and I knew right away that I wanted Jonathan to be our wedding photographer. We love his photojournalistic modern style of photography.

From our engagement session to today Jonathan has been a dream to work with. He is not afraid to be adventurous with his photography and he is professional, fun, and easygoing. Our friends and family have been duly impressed with our engagement photos and our wedding photos.

After months of looking at his pictures and wedding recap videos I was so excited for it to be OUR turn! Our wedding party and our guests LOVED working with Jonathan the day of the wedding. He fit right in with the group and was right out there with us on the dance floor! His wedding video recap is priceless and he often posts it quickly after the wedding - we don't know how he does it! He posted several of our pictures on his blog just a few days after our wedding and when the wedding photos were ready to view my husband and I were so excited to check them out. It was like reliving the day - he caught everything. Just simply stunning photography. My friends saw some of the photos and said it was straight out of a magazine.

Jonathan is truly special. If you are looking for a phenomenal wedding photographer - go no further. Jonathan is it. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I want him as my family photographer for life!

Just the two of us came from NC to Santa Margarita Ranch for our wedding; we were impressed with Jonathan's portfolio and new he was an AMAZING photographer from the very beginning. He served as our witness in our intimate ceremony and couldn't have made us feel more comfortable. All of our family and friends felt as though Jonathan's work captured the true moments we shared. Jonathan gets our highest recommendation.

Jonathan recently photographed our wedding and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. From start to finish Jonathan's attitude was cheerful, energetic and relaxed. I'm not sure how he manages to encompass all three but he does it with ease and he doesn't miss a beat! We first met Jonathan at our engagement shoot and within minutes we felt comfortable with a huge camera and a stranger in our face no less. In fact, at one point he mentioned, "okay, you can stop kissing now." I suppose somehow we became too comfortable and forgot he was even there. Jonathan captures the real energy that people have; the funny faces, authentic laughter and the intimate moments that can only be seen from his point of view. He gets those shots that people find themselves thinking, "how did he pull that off?" Only we know that Jonathan is willing to sacrifice his clean clothes, get down in the dirt, balance himself and his equipment behind a delicate branch all while transforming something that looks ordinary into the extraordinary. The single most important decision I made during my wedding planning was changing my date to accommodate his talent. Not only did we get our photos back within days after the wedding, we also received an amazing video of our day in less than 24 hours! Yes, this single shooter photographer who spent about 12 hours shooting our wedding found the energy and time to process a video he put together while taking our photos at the same time? Makes you really wonder, how does he do it? His work is nothing but the best, his editing is clean and timeless. I know in 20 years when I look back at these photos I will know that he wasn't processing our pictures with the most recent trends that will only prove to fade with time. I honestly can say that I see no room for improvement in Jonathan. Thank you Jonathan, you rock man! Ashley + Abel

I'm so glad we picked Jonathan as our photographer, we are the worst to photograph we just get so stiff and awkward!! But he was so much fun and helped loosen us up. Our pics are amazing! And our video was awesome! He sent it to us the morning after our wedding, it was so great to see before we left on our honeymoon.
He rocks!!

I'm going to echo all of the wonderful reviews about Jonathan because IT'S ALL TRUE, PEOPLE.

Being a top-notch photographer is only half the battle-- the other half is making clients feel comfortable and covered. Jonathan wins at both. He's fast (but not intense), easy-going (but gets all the shots), and fun & involved (but he blends in). Sounds like some sort of super-hero-photographer, right? Just wait until you get the little mini-movie of your day! You'll be SO VERY thankful you chose Jonathan at Bluephoto!

We are still getting compliments on our wedding photos, the mini-movie, and Jonathan himself-- just the way he immersed himself in the crowd on the day and how quickly he posted his work. What more can you ask for?!?

Thanks again, Jonathan. You're awesome :-)

Let's see, how to describe Jonathan - he's like a ninja that left ninja school, picked up a camera, and never looked back. Jonathan was everywhere at once at our wedding - on the dancefloor, up in the trees, out in the fields, up on the roof. You see him one minute and then he's gone the next, like some kind of photography leprechaun. All I can say is that if he is not ruinously violating all the laws of physics, then Jonathan absolutely worked his tail off at our wedding. Jonathan captured so many ridiculously awesome, stunning, funny, heartwarming, and genuinely candid pictures that you feel embarrassed that you aren't paying him more. And they all look SO good, to the point that I can't say to people "the pictures don't do it justice," but rather that"this is exactly how it looked and felt!" How many people really ever say that and mean it? When you work with Jonathan, you're signing up for all the professional qualifications: skilled photographer, punctuality, not-your-average-wedding-picture, etc. But here's the kicker - what you get is so much more than that. Jonathan has a warm personality and I really always felt like he was there doing more than just earning his paycheck. He interacts with family and friends fluidly, has a hilarious way of getting everyone in and out and on with the day, and he finds photo ops and lighting in places you never even saw it.Jonathan understood it was an important day for me and my wife and he moved and acted like he really took that to heart. He was always receptive to feedback about things we wanted, but what really pleased me was that when I told him to just do his thing, he didn't take that as a free pass to take routine pictures. He ran with it (sometimes literally) and pushed his photography above and beyond anything I had seen in his other shoots. Seriously, Jonathan clearly still loves to try new techniques and I absolutely encourage you to let him stretch his legs, a freedom that I think truly rewards the client.

Jonathan at Bluephoto was AMAZING!! We found Jonathan after we had already put a deposit down on another photographer, but loved his work so much that we lost our $1000 deposit so that we could have him. We didnt meet Jonathan until the week of the wedding (because we did a destination wedding) but he immediately made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Our engagement pictures and photos from the wedding are simply stunning; so candid and beautiful. We already have them displayed all over our new home. We love his ability to capture the raw moments and the lighting he uses in his photos is just gorgeous!

Another great thing that Jonathan does for weddings is his video montage. From our wedding day, he put together a 5 minute video. This video is something that we will forever cherish. It is like a mini movie of our day. Our friends and family are still commenting on how unique and wonderful the video he made for us was. Everytime that we watch it, it brings us back to the happiest day of our lives:)

We would without a doubt use Jonathan if we had to do it all over again and would highly recommend him to any bride out there who wants candid, amazing photos.

“Our experience with Jonathan at Bluephoto was, from start to finish, wonderful. From the get go, he was transparent about how he operates business and willing to tailor his services to our needs as a couple. He is fun and easy to be around, which made for light-hearted and laughter-filled interactions. Such interactions made our engagement shoot a great date night caught on film, and we would have loved to have Jonathan at our wedding, photographs or not. He was a great guest, dancing his heart out right alongside us. And all the while, Jonathan operates with absolute professionalism; he’s organized and always responded quickly to emails and phone calls. Not only that but he has a truly creative eye. His artistic vision is clear and his execution artfully imaginative. He utilizes light in a way that is breath-taking. And if anyone can get the shot, he can. Somehow, he’s everywhere. Looking back, we’ve said repeatedly, “How did he do that?!” or “I didn’t even know he was there!” On our big day Jonathan was unobtrusive, always available and calm amidst all the craziness a wedding day brings. The day now past, we can’t stop returning to our photos and video montage, which we’ve watched a good 30 times and shown to everyone we know. His creative gift has captured and immortalized our love in a way that we couldn’t have hoped to be more beautiful. We already look forward to working more with Jonathan for anniversary shoots, if he can squeeze us in.

Looking back, we’ve said repeatedly, “How did he do that?!” or “I didn’t even know he was there!” On our big day Jonathan was unobtrusive, always available and calm amidst all the craziness a wedding day brings. The day now past, we can’t stop returning to our photos and video montage, which we’ve watched a good 30 times and shown to everyone we know. His creative gift has captured and immortalized our love in a way that we couldn’t have hoped to be more beautiful. We already look forward to working more with Jonathan for anniversary shoots, if he can squeeze us in. Read less

Jonathan was so creative and professional. We barely even knew he was there during the wedding and reception and yet he took the most amazing pictures. He is really easy-going and flexible which makes him wonderful to work with. The quality of his work will not disappoint. The video montage that he provides in one of a kind and so creative!

Where do I even begin?? We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Jonathan!!! Booking him was hands down the best decision of our wedding. He is such a pleasure to work with. We met with him a couple times prior to our wedding and everytime we had such a blast!! Jonathan has an amazing personality and a great sense of humor. This makes all the difference in the world. He makes you totally comfortable which is huge. There's nothing worse than being (and looking) uncomfortable on camera. Our engagement pictures came out beautiful. Our wedding pictures.....I have no words except for WOW!!!! I am completely OBSESSED with them!! Jonathan captured every special moment and every detail of our wedding. He is beyond talented!! Then there's the video that he does. This was such a great added bonus. We didn't have a videographer so this was a great way to relive the day. I have gotten rave reviews for all of our family and friends:) Jonathan is a total professional and very quick to respond. He even danced with my grandma!! Everyone had such a blast with him. And we recieved ALL of our photos within a week of our wedding!!! I could go on and on :) We would recommend him to everyone and anyone.

Jonathan, we can't thank you enough for giving us a lifetime of memories. We are forever grateful to you. ~Josh and Lexie Thomas

It is incredibly difficult to use only 5 stars and a couple paragraphs of text to explain why you should choose Bluephoto for your wedding. If you haven’t already, your decision will likely be made for you when you look at his website and see the glorious use of light and the totally unique short videos. One wedding guest said our video looked like a promo for a trendy indy movie starring us – amazing!

In the end, there are many photographers who will take beautiful pictures of you on your wedding day. And if you are having a very traditional wedding and want a series of pre-configured photo ops and you want someone to hold a camera and take those pictures for you, go ahead and hire someone else, you can probably get that much cheaper. Jonathan’s talent is best used by cool, edgy, and unique weddings/couples who want the focus to be on the meaning of their happy day and don’t want to act. You can trust Jonathan to capture every detail while you focus on celebrating with your guests. Working with Jonathan allows even the most camera-shy couple feel comfortable and then to have beautiful artwork in which they and their family and friends are the subject.

He’s a very cool guy and it was like working with an old friend; our wedding was very small, and he still managed to blend in seamlessly. He works great with little kids, drunken dancing people, and everyone in between. It was an honor to work with him and we could not recommend his beautiful work more.

Jonathan was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was the first vendor we booked, and definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

First there's communication: you can email him, call him, send him a message on facebook and he always responds, and quickly! It's so nice to work with a vendor that doesn't leave you hanging for weeks on end.

Second, there's personality. It is just so easy to relax around him, and for me, that's saying something. I freeze up as soon as a camera comes within 10 feet of me! Jonathan has a great sense of humor, and is very open and friendly. I actually got compliments from my guests and wedding party on how great he was!

And third, there's the work. Oh my goodness, but our pictures look amazing! He somehow managed to capture all of the details of the day (no idea how - I think maybe a clone?), and captured them beautifully. I cannot wait to make an album so that I can show off my pictures to family, friends, and possibly unsuspecting strangers.

Jonathan shot my recent wedding at Holland Ranch in San Luis Obispo. From the engagement pictures to the wedding day, he was a pleasure to work with! He was very prompt to get back to me with questions, and helped walk me through the timeline for the wedding day! He gives great direction when it comes to posing...I am no model but somehow he brought out my Cindy Crawford!!! He has a wonderful personality and above all he has a tremendous talent! What a creative guy...I love his photos and his video montages (which are included in his photography packages)!!

Jonathan was a fantastic wedding photographer! As we planned our wedding from 3000 miles away, Jonathan was great at helping us in the planning process and promptly answering any questions we had.

The engagement photo shoot and pictures (+ brag book) were great. Our wedding day photos came-out beautifully and we have had so many compliments on them. One of the points that stands-out is the video montage--really cool, especially since we didn't have a videographer and it's great to have a short video segment that captured our entire day. Highly recommend Jonathan!

Jonathan was so fun and easy to work with! He was extremely professional and always responded quickly to our questions. His personality makes you feel at ease. He knows how to joke around and have a good time with you which made us feel more comfortable. It didn't feel like some stranger was stalking us with a camera it was as if a friend of ours was photographing us. The best part is that he let us keep ALL of our photos! Couldn't be happier with what we got from Jonathan!

I LOVE Jonathan he is absolutely amazing. He was so easy to work with and so much fun. For our engagement pictures we visited 3 different spots. The pictures turned out beautifully and he was so relaxed and it was super easy working with him.

For our wedding Jonathan captured absolutely everything from that evening. It was the happiest day of our lives and his picture really show that. He did an amazing job. The pictures were done with in a week and so gorgeous. He also did such an amazing video. He has an eye for this and is so good at it.

I will not be using any other photographer. Jonathan is so amazing.

Jonathan is the BEST out there! From the engagment shoot he made us feel totally comfortable...we went to 3 different locations and had a blast! The day of the wedding he hung out with us girls and got so many great shots without envading just fitting right in. The guests loved him because he is so likeable and not an in your face photographer. He had a sample of our pictures availalbe the next day and all of the pictures available after a week! WE LOVE Jonathan and will use him anytime we need pictures in the future!

I've been putting this review off b/c it's difficult to express the way I feel about Jonathan and his photography in words. Simply put - "I am a Raving Fan."

I consider myself a manly man, a linebacker, tough, rough & tumble person. I'm the guy with the firm handshake, the kind of guy that does not cry. Well, apparently Jonathan saw right through my tough guy persona and was able to prove all of the aforementioned untrue in a matter of seconds. The day after the wedding we had invited him back over to have brunch with our family and friends. Jonathan showed up with a sneak preview of a couple of his favorite photos from the day, along with an unbelievable video montage of the wedding. This "tough guy" cried like a baby through the entire thing. And I continue to cry as we re-watch the video over and over again. It is perfect.

Did I mention that he left the wedding close to midnight? That meant one of two things. Either he has a bunch of Keebler Elves making videos in his studio, or he did not sleep that night. Like I said, he had the video ready the next morning. This meant the world to Sarah and me.

Now that we have our photos back, I can say that the still images that he creates are equally stunning. Jonathan has a gift with light and as our time with him went on, I began to notice that the wheels in his head are always spinning. He was on a never ending quest to find the best lighting and backdrops the entire time. As I looked through the pictures, there were plenty of "how did he do that" moments. You know those pictures you see in magazines, where the light comes through in perfect fashion. Jonathan is a true artist.

There is nothing I want more than to share our amazing experience with the world. Every couple should have the pleasure of working with Jonathan and I will continue to rave about him.

Jonathan was a pure joy to work with, and the photos that we have are amazing!! I am not one for being in front of a camera.....but Jonathan made me forget that. We loved that he let us have fun and just went with whatever came up.....none of those stuffy, uncomfortable, fake photos.....just us. Our engagement session was also a real treat and an added bonus for helping us feel so comfortable when the camera was on us on our wedding day. I can't recommend Bluephoto enough. You will not be disappointed.
