If you're like me, the first thing you do when you visit someone's website is check out their "About Me" section. I like to find out a little about the person before looking at their pictures...It helps you understand the photographer and the way they see the world. [Plus, if I'm an engaged couple looking for a photographer the last thing I need is a difficult vendor.]

So "About Me" sections tend to fall into two main camps if you will. On one side you've got the guy who has been doing photography for what seems to be an eternity. They'll probably make a mention about the "good ole days of film". On the other camp, you have the ridiculously 'artsy-fartsy' type. They'll talk about "capturing love, one shot at a time." Or maybe something edgy like, "I capture dreams."

Me? I love people. I love photography. [And everyone and their moms love weddings. Duhh.] It's a perfect fit. I'm a firm believer in this little thing called integrity. Hard work and constant improvement come standard. I believe life is stressful enough...no need to add to it. I believe a simple smile goes a long way. And I don't believe in having "clients." Only friends.

All the best!

Jonathan :) Read less

Jonathan is very easy to talk with and is also very charming. On our wedding day, he was able to capture the day and provide us with very artistic and beautiful photos. We love that fact that he provided us with all the wedding photos - most photographers keep the photos and charge for extra prints. In this case, we received the photos and were able to re-print, enlarge, do whatever we liked with OUR wedding photos. Jonathan believes that these are the clients memories and property. He is also very flexible - we were not completely firm with our wedding schedule until the very last minute, but Jonathan was very accommodating and flexible to our needs. He responds quickly and we felt at ease with him as our photographer. We ended up purchasing the wedding album after the wedding because we were on a tight budget. The album just arrived and is beautiful. My husband and I love his work and we are so happy we found him.

Jon was an absolute pleasure to work with. Up until the day of the wedding, I was a frazzled stress-case procrastinator of a bride, but he was extremely patient and incredibly accommodating. He didn't fret when I gave him the group picture list late. He didn't mind when I wasn't promptly responsive to his e-mails. He was incredibly understanding about the stresses of being a bride and worked around my schedule.

On the day of the wedding, that's when I realized that I hired the guy with the right personality. Despite my awkwardness in taking photos, despite my goofiness and my inability to take serious photos, Jon's cheerful and funny, but low-key attitude really made it easier for me to relax. It was amazing, but I actually looked graceful in my pics! While taking pics of the guests, his personality truly dazzled! I received so many compliments on my photographer from the guests!

After the wedding, I continued to be impressed when I received my photo-book. Not only was he the guy with the right personality, he was extremely talented! Somehow, someway, he was able to capture me and my husband, our true personalities, in these photos. They weren't just pictures of us. They were pictures of the feelings we felt at that exact moment. And this is something I can only relive through these photos.

I am so grateful to Jon. Overall, he is the photographer that was able to capture our personalities perfectly. He is the photographer that all of the guests were impressed by. He is the photographer that was so incredibly accommodating. He is the photographer that gave me and my husband a priceless gift. Thanks, Jon!

Jon was an amazing photographer with a very creative range--taking very sweet, deeply romantic photos to capturing those funny moments that you'd want to remember. Our wedding was in a colorful contemporary church with several hundred guests and a large bridal party (6 bridesmaids, 6 grooms, flower girls, etc). During the ceremony, Jon took pictures from numerous angles, at the foot of the stage, on the balcony, etc. He has a very good instinct for the flow of the wedding ceremony, capturing all the right moments at the right time, whether in an up close detailed photo or a wide angled picture capturing the magnitude of the moment. I appreciated his creative interpretation and perspective. We had Christmas lights for decoration and some of the lights had shorted out, but Jon was able to take pictures of us contrasting the darkness and brightness, so that we seemed to be framed with soft halos--his use of light was very good. He also captured the mood of the wedding well; we were having a lot of fun and there are a lot of smiley, laughter-filled photos. We also had a private photo shoot with Jon in between the wedding and the ceremony. Jon took a lot of classic, romantic photos as well as posing us in a way that depicted a story (girl meets boy, etc). As a person, Jon was very kind, supportive, and understanding. He has a very generous heart and is really able to see the wedding from an artist's point of view, and yet is so genuine in capturing the atmosphere. And also, he traveled from San Diego to be at our early afternoon wedding in Los Angeles, and showed no signs of fatigue, but was very energetic and happy, to which, we're very grateful.

We used Jon for a full day of wedding photography - starting at 6AM until 11PM!

The results were great and we had a ton of fun. He flew up from San Diego to shoot our event in San Francisco and was very accommodating of both our schedule and all the crazy travel around downtown on the day of.

Highly recommended!
