I began photographing weddings over 10 years ago. Regularly published in print and on the internet, I have a dedication and passion for the visual arts. I've worked with The New York Times, Newsweek, the photo agency Polaris, Remix, and other publications. My travels have taken me from the US to Europe to Africa to Asia and back. My packages are definitely more suggestions than anything else, and I almost always create custom packages for couples. Regardless of what you ultimately want however, EVERY package comes with the following things:
- 6 hours of coverage - All you photos are uploaded to a password protected website/storefront for viewing and purchase - Your individually touched-up full-resolution photos on archival, gold-plated dvd’s - The copyright to reprint your photos - A Photo Booth The above is our "Base Package" which is $2300. Give me a call, or shoot me a text or email. tel: 717.371.5880 email: hello@jonathanmcbride.photography Read less

Jonathan did a wonderful job! He has such a unique style and great eye! We love all our photos! He did our engagement and our wedding photos. Our wedding was in Stanley and he traveled without a complaint. He has a funny sense of humor and really helps relax awkward situations. I enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anybody and everybody!

He and his second photographer were extremely accommodating and took their time with every single picture they took. Excellent quality and extremely professional. Would highly recommend them to anyone seeking unique and high quality photography!

Mcbride shot my daughter's wedding in august of 2015. We foolishly paid him in full. It is not June of 2016 and we don't have our album and he does not return our calls. There are many wedding photographers out there, I would suggest you use one that will complete the job and at least return your calls.

The son of my mother's friend got married a few years ago, and I was struck by how wonderful his wedding pictures were (and made a mental note of the photographer, Jonathan, even though I did not then have a wedding on the horizon). When I got engaged last August and we picked a date, the first person I called was Jonathan, who thankfully was free that day. As you can see by looking at his website, he has a photojournalistic, documentary style that really captures all aspects of the day: its busyness, its peace, its humor, its love, its joy. His photos speak for themselves, but I especially like how he documented the day in a photojournalistic style yet people still looked good in the photos! We did not have a videographer, but these moments, recorded in still images, capture the day perfectly––my husband, parents, and I are all very pleased! Even though he has a documentary style, Jonathan also took some great posed pictures for us, which we are happy to have (and the "photo booth" pictures, taken by guests themselves, were a nice way to make sure everyone was photographed). In addition his great talent, Jonathan is also a really nice guy and was a pleasant, calm presence on our wedding day––I highly recommend him!

Jonathan took our engagement photos and later covered our wedding. The photos were so beautiful and genuinely captured my new husband and I as a couple. Jonathan has been flexible and great to work with at every step of the process. He was creative and open to trying both our ideas and his own. There wasn't much in the way of a plan for the day of our engagement shoot, which made me nervous at first. But I quickly found that there was no reason to be worried. It seemed like Jonathan could have come up with ideas for any location. He was very discerning and instructed us well. He had a great way of putting my fiance and I at ease during the shoot. We received the photos in a very timely fashion and were even able to use them in our invitations--something we weren't expecting. We have begun to receive our wedding photos and they are incredible, too. Throughout the wedding, Jonathan and Douglas were there to capture every shot. There was no time when I said to myself "Aw man, this would have been a great photo if only the photographer had been here to see it." They were always there. The quality is on par with photographers charging thousands of dollars more for smaller packages. I highly recommend Vantage Pictures!

Jonathan McBride is a talented photographer and did a nice engagement shoot for us but I am sorry to report that he did not show up for our wedding. Due to disorganization on his part he failed to show up to work at our wedding entirely and we did not have a professional photographer until very late at our wedding. Our photos ended up being taken by a friend of a friend, our wedding was pushed back an hour and a half waiting for that person to arrive with gear, all our dessert was thrown away as a result of the reschedule and the experience was incredibly stressful and very disappointing.

I could go on and on about the stress and negativity that resulted from his failure to show up but I'm sure you can imagine it yourself. My mom and I were both in tears wondering if all our careful planning and DIY work not to mention the most special moment of my life would be documented at all. We have no professional photographs at all of my mother helping me into my wedding gown, of my beautiful bridesmaids getting ready and their dresses hanging on customized hangers that were handmade for them, of all our friends who came out to decorate the barn, etc. Jonathan was also in charge of making us a guest book so that was not at the wedding-- we have no record of who came or if there were well wishes and advice for us.

I will say that Jonathan was very apologetic and gave us a full refund for his services but there isn't anything that makes up for what happened. It's super hard to ruin something as beautiful as a wedding and he did not succeed but came awfully close.

JONATHAN McBRIDE PHOTOGRAPHY responded with the following comments:

Missing Jesse's wedding was the worst day of my professional career! She had changed her wedding date about 5 months previously, and although I’d updated her contract, there was an issue with my online calendar and it didn’t update, which it was supposed to do automatically. I went on planning for her date and had the second photographer arranged for the date a week after (her original date). I was at home with my family when she called, and her wedding was a few hours away. I scrambled to get my Associate Photographer there, who lived close by, but before he could get there she called and canceled everything, which I totally understood. She had another Photographer document things, which I’m very glad she was able to arrange.

All of her money was refunded, as she states above. In the aftermath, I’ve changed my online scheduling service as well as purchased a paper calendar as a backup. I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings for over 10 years and it’s never happened before, and it won’t happen again! If anyone would like contact info for recent couples who can provide recommendations, please don't hesitate to ask!

Choosing the perfect photographer is the most important thing for me, other than the wedding dress. I'm really glad that I made the right choice and Vantage pictures is absolutely amazing. Jonathan is professional, fun and easy to work with. He captured all the moments and details that I want. I had so much fun posing for pictures for hours:) He has talent of finding the perfect spot for portrait. The pictures totally exceed our expectation. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I got married March 2013 and it is now October 2014, I have yet to receive the album I was promised. While Jonathan was quick in sending me the CD with the photos, we did pay for an album in our initial package. I have tried emailing Jonathan multiple times, who initially responded saying that he was busy but since 2014, I have not gotten even a response back despite multiple emails. I never got a finished product that I paid for and my photographer from my wedding day has stopped responding.

Just know what you are in for when you use Vantage pictures. You will pay for an album but not likely to receive one.
