As a well-honed photojournalist, Jonathan Young focuses on capturing amazing moments throughout your wedding. From the happy glances you exchange as you stand together during your ceremony, to the toasts filled with laughter and joy, he anticipates the moments before they happen. With an eye for detail, color, and emotion, he crafts a complete photographic narrative of the day as it unfolds. Jonathan Young Weddings serves New York and California and is available for destination events worldwide.

After the wedding day your photos are securely backed up in the cloud and post-production begins. Within 4 weeks your photos will be toned, color corrected, retouched and presented in a password-protected online gallery.

Jonathan Young then personally works with you creating a custom designed book that showcases the full scope and beauty of your day. Whether you desire a matted book, a modern flush book, or a blend of the two, Jonathan Young Weddings offers a full selection of premium papers, silks and leathers to enhance the presentation of your wedding photos.

Jonathan has received the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Award for excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism for 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

We loved working with Jonathan! He is very professional yet down to business, and that's exactly what you want on your wedding day. You want a photographer who takes charge and keeps the flow of pics going, especially when you have so many family, group, couple shots you want to get through. I was a little skeptical because his services are quite expensive but in his case you get exactly what you pay for. WE LOVED OUR SHOTS! And we can't wait to see them all laid out in a photo book he is currently making for us. Seeing them in his blog on his website was such a treat! It brought our wedding day to life. The colors and details of his work is exquisite. Additionally, our family and friends loved his work too. We didn't book a videographer however, with the character and timeline of the shots we received I feel like we didn't need one. If you can splurge on photography do it and book today!

We found Jonathan through a recommended vendor list, although we did not go with the initial venue - we were blown away by Jonathan's pictures on his website. We decided to meet with him in person and instantly knew that his calm and professional demeanor were a perfect match for us. We hired him to shoot our NYC engagement photos and destination wedding/rehearsal dinner in Vermont.
He arrived on time and prepared for all three events and did such an amazing job. We love his vision and his keen eye for detail. We constantly get praise for our photos from both family and friends. The day of the wedding he was right on time and got all the shots that I had requested along with his own shots. He even helped with the coordination of the limos, when they were late! He was on his cell phone making calls to the right people. But he is great like that and will jump in when needed, whether it's fixing your hair or organizing the group for photos.
Lastly, the day of the wedding is always hectic and stressful. You will have a lot of different people and vendors pulling you in different directions. But Jonathan is different in the sense that he is seen when needed and then disappears and takes all these amazing photos, that you didn't even know existed! He works his way through the crowd and you would never know he's there. He even snuck back up to our ceremony location while everyone was in the tent dancing to get a "Night" shot of the house with the lights on. I had no idea he ran back up there, but I absolutely love that shot! My advice is to trust your photographer and give them to freedom to do what they do best, and you will be amazed at the results!

Happy wedding planning and remember to pause and enjoy the day!

Jonathan Young shot our wedding and our engagement session. Not only was he extremely professional, but he is incredibly talented. He has such an eye for detail that really comes through in his work. He manages large bridal parties with ease. (ours was 12 on each side!) He was very efficient with his time, but more than willing to do whatever it takes to capture an amazing photo. We cannot recommend more highly. He is the best, and is worth every penny.

I simply cannot praise Jonathan enough. He was hands down the best (and, first!) vendor we booked for our wedding, and I must say that we had some pretty fantastic vendors. Very early on in the planning process, I stumbled upon some of the most gorgeous wedding photos I had seen, contacted Jonathan immediately, booked an initial meeting with him (along with my now husband) and then immediately after, booked Jonathan for our June 29th wedding. We were so impressed and comfortable with Jonathan from the get-go and did not want to mess around. I am so glad we didn't - he books up quickly and now I truly know why. Our photos from our wedding day far surpassed my already-high expectations. Jonathan is authentic, has a keen eagle-eye for detail (important!) and is a true artist. His photos capture "real" unedited moments that tell a unique and comprehensive story of the entire day, and each is better than the last - if that is even possible. They are visually stunning, unaltered and utter perfection. Jonathan is incredibly easy to work with, efficient, very responsive and a true professional. His unobtrusive manner, super friendly demeanor and eye for style is a total plus. His associate, Kelly, was also remarkably wonderful - it's evident that Jonathan knows and trusts those he enlists for help and holds his associates to very high standards. Simply put, his work is top-notch and worth every single cent.

So many of our friends, family and more, have mentioned that our wedding photos are some of the most beautiful they have seen. Thank you Jonathan for capturing the best day of our lives in the most beautiful way. We truly can't thank you enough!!

If you're looking for gorgeous photos that will stand the test of time (no trendy Instagram-like filters, no cheesy posing) then Jonathan Young is your man! I was so happy with how beautifully our photos came out—Jonathan is a master at capturing everything from wedding details, to heartfelt moments, to laugh-out-loud hilarious moments on the dance floor, all while being a quiet, quick-on-his-feet presence (no in-your-face camera lights here). Plus, Jonathan is just such a nice guy, and so professional. I knew from the moment we signed the contract we were in good hands. Would absolutely recommend hiring him!

Jonathan was exceptional from start to finish. He was very easy to work with and had great communication via phone/ email and highly responsive. Leading up to the big day he helped keep us organized and on schedule as we stressed. On the day, he made everything easy and most importantly FUN. We had a photo shot list, but the day of we had fresh snow and so we used it and the pics turned out amazing. The rest of the day was great and he helped keep our big family with plenty of personality on schedule and in place. He worked well with my grandparents as well with my little niece. Overall, I would recommend Jonathan to anyone. He offered great value for his services and was flexible.

We just got the photos back from Jonathan and I could not stop looking through them! They were simply beautiful - he was able to capture beautiful fleeting moments, create wonderful portraits, and capture the overall energy of the day. He handled the group portraits with ease and yet he was organized enough to get them all done without leaving any out. The rest of the evening, he was everywhere all the time. Even our guests mentioned how accessible he was!

As a photo enthusiast, picking a photographer was the HARDEST part of planning the wedding for me. It was important to me not to have the traditional wedding photos, but to have a more documentary, real, and un-staged feel. When I came across his work, I knew that I had found the photographer that I wanted to shoot our wedding. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome photographer!!!

Jonathan Young has been an absolute pleasure to work with from the day that we met him. He is extremely accommodating and flexible from finding time for meetings and scheduling an engagement shoot to arriving early on the day of our wedding to make sure he knows the lay of the land. Beyond his pleasant attitude and extremely calm demeanor, Jonathan is very talented and we could not be happier with both our engagement photos and wedding day pictures. He was able to capture the true essence of the day through candid photography and group shots that have emotion. I have already received several compliments on the photos and how everyone can feel the energy from our wedding day through the photos. I highly recommend Jonathan to capture any special moment or occasion that you may have.

Jonathan was amazing to work with throughout the entire processes of planning the wedding and especially on our wedding day. He was so responsive to all of my questions and was super professional and on top of things. My wedding took place over the weekend of Hurricane Irene last summer and Jonathan and his wife Elisabeth made the trip into the city despite suspended public transportation and crazy weather, and a last minute venue change! They were such troopers and so positive throughout the whole day. They really made our wedding special and I can't recommend Jonathan enough!!!

We were thrilled with Jonathan's photos from our wedding - he and Elisabeth captured shots, angles, moments, expressions - basically everything - at just the perfect time. We've received compliment and compliment on our photos and they will be a wonderful memory to look back upon year after year. Jonathan was really easy to work with - from the moment we started talking him through the wedding and the editing. We also received our photos back much sooner than expected - which was a nice treat! I highly recommend using Jonathan Young Weddings as your wedding photographer - we loved his photojournalism style, professionalism, and ability to capture every special moment!

Any bride would be lucky to have Jonathan Young as her wedding photographer. The quality of his work is unbelievable and we loved his photojournalist style. His prices are fair, and he was flexible in creating the perfect package of what we were looking for. We also had the pleasure of working with his wife Elizabeth who pitched in as his assistant on our big day, and they were a fantastic team. Jonathan captured the spirit of our day, and his photos tell a clear story. Working with him was truly a pleasure and I am forever grateful for the fabulous pictures that we will treasure forever.

Hiring Jonathan Young to document our wedding was the best decision we made. From our first meeting to the very end of our wedding day, he was top-notch. He is a phenomenal photographer, but also a great person. Many of our guests, went out of their way to say how kind and wonderful he was. He captured the day with great detail, when I first saw the photos, I can remember exactly what I was thinking and the waterworks begin!!!! He was responsive to every e-mail I sent, and addressed all of our concerns in great detail. My husband is a "manly man" who does not enjoy taking photos, but once he met with Jonathan and did our engagement photos, he could not raving about how great he is. In the vast world of wedding photography, he is a gem.

I could go on and on just describing how awesome he is, just hire him, you will not regret it.

Jonathan is a rare find in that he has all the subtlety, creativity and responsiveness of a well-honed photojournalist. He is also one of the most pleasant and organized people with whom I have ever worked. He intuitively captures the beauty and individuality of his subjects. I was perfectly confident of his ability and responsiveness throughout the entire wedding planning process and the wedding itself.

When planning our wedding we knew that we wanted to have photographs that captured our personalities, and the feeling of the day. Jonathan has done just that in our photographs; when I look the photographs of our wedding, getting ready, the reception I can remember just how wonderful the day was, and everyone looks happy and natural. His familiarity with the location of our wedding bennefitted us - he was able to take us to great places for our portraits, but also capture the location beautifully. Jonathan is very flexible, personable and responsive and I would highly recommend him.

Working with Jonathan was an absolutely amazing experience. He is one of the most gifted an amazing photographers I've met. Beyond that, however, is just his demeanor and approach. So many of our guests remarked about how professional he was. He managed to capture the most important moments of our day without ever feeling like he was being intrusive or taking our focus away from just enjoying the day. He worked quickly with the utmost professionalism. Additionally, I was blown away by how he never missed a moment. If there was something important happening, even things I wasn't aware of, he was always on the spot to capture it.

This is by far the most important day of my life and leading up to it, we continually remarked about how excited we were that Jonathan was our photographer. We knew we could trust the quality of what we were going to get. He skillfully and subtly managed to capture the essence of our guests and our experience. I absolutely recommend Jonathan without hesitation. We were so fortunate to have such a talented professional, skilled photographer, and genuinely nice person working with us.

Jonathan was an absolutely wonderful wedding photographer from start with taking engagement photos in the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn, New York to finish on our big day in Esopus, New York. Jonathan was very professional and listened to all of our ideas/views and provided informative and suptle changes as needed. Jonathan was able to go with the planned details and also accommodated spir of the moment photos. What we wanted on our big day was somebody who could blend in and take pictures of the actual event and not staged. Jonathan was very sociable and liked by everybody in our wedding party, family and friends. We enjoyed receiving the pictures from the wedding and picking out photos for our albums with our family. My parents in particular were very emotional looking through the pictures. Jonathan was a excellent pick for a wedding photographer and everything we could have asked for. We highly recommend him to future brides and grooms.

Jonathan and Kelly who assisted were amazing photographers for our wedding. Jonathan is has a very calm but enthusiastic (hard combination!) presence - which made him blend in with the event, while at the same time capturing the really special moments. He has an amazing eye and a nicely modern aesthetic that makes the photo results meaningful and wonderful to look at. As a person, he is super nice, patient (with all those last-minute things that come up), very professional - you can tell he has a lot of experience. It made the photo-taking process (which I'm very shy about) very pleasant. Kelly led the photobooth option we selected - honestly, the photobooth was something we unexpectedly splurged for, and it was worth every penny. It really captured the guests in a fun and casual way full of their own personalities. All of my family and friends went out of their way to tell me how they thought Jonathan and Kelly were so great too. I can't stress enough how happy of a bride I was in selecting Jonathan to be there for the big day. Thanks Jonathan + Kelly!!!

I highly recommend Jonathan to any bride and groom!

Jonathan delivered 100%. He is a talented photographer, consummate professional and exactly the person you want by your side capturing moments small and large. He provided beautiful candid photographs- working hard on difficult interior, evening shots and the end products (small booklets for our family, a proof box, originals on DVD and a final wedding album) are treasured memorabilia from a night we look back on with great memories and beautiful photographs to match.

Where to begin. First of all, Jonathan was a dream to work with from the moment we met him in a coffee shop in New York. His humility, confidence, talent and calm demeanor won us over immediately. Together, these traits make for such a special value to a bride and groom. We were taken with his vibrant portfolio and photojournalistic style. His professional, kind attitude and technical ability were next level. On the "day of," he was perfect. Now happily married, we're going to have to find new ways to incorporate Jonathan into our lives (Jonathan, will you do babies one day??) - and are confident to recommend him to anyone. Book him with confidence and never look back!

We received SO many compliments about our photographers. Their professionalism, eagerness to get the shots we wanted, and the fact that they covered the entire event (from getting ready early in the day all the way through the final dance) and were involved in everything and yet non-invasive to the ceremony and reception was nothing short of amazing. The shots they got were incredible! Everyone we've shown them to has marvelled at the posed shots, the artistic shots as well as the candid party shots...the clarity and the moments captured reflect the skill, experience, and enjoyment the photographers had for their job. I could not possibly give them enough praise or recommend them highly enough! Sincerely, Jeremy Manjorin

I found Love Captures after searching various wedding sites and was impressed by the images on his site. I liked the candid shots, eye for artistic lines, natural lighting, and art of capturing vibrant colors. His demeanor is laid back and friendly, but he is also adamant about getting certain key shots without being pushy. I felt like I was posing and having fun in front of a friend, which made our shots look more natural. He shot all the details, as well as the people, that made the wedding beautiful so that they are forever remembered.
