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 received our wedding photos earlier than expected. Jonathan is not only a talented photographer, he is also a very efficient, patience, organised, a very detailed oriented person. It makes the planning and the progress so much more easier. We decided to work with Jonathan after we saw his portfolio. We love how he managed to capture great moments and his editing style. He kept everything simple and natural. We are extremely satisfied with his editing skill. He kept the original colour tone and natural light and only do some minor touch.

We did not interview or discuss much with Jonathan before we booked him. As we are living oversea, we never met him until the wedding day. We communicated through email and he is very prompt with reply.

During the wedding day, he earlier to capture the wedding venue and during group photos he was very detailed oriented and take note of a string of hair on the face , a fallen leaf on the floor etc. He make sure everything is perfect before he captures it. He said it will take a few weeks to get the photos ready and he completed them a week earlier. We were extremely happy. Our family and friends are very satisfied with the photos as well.

He is very calm and patience during the wedding. We have a few babies and toddlers at the wedding. During the group photo shoots, he managed to capture all of them looking at the camera. Every children and every photos! I was amazed.

For all bride-to-be, Jonathan really did a perfect job and is a great vendor to work with. He will lightened your burden during the planning and on that day itself. And will keep you worry free on the wedding day.

Thank you Jonathan.

Jonathan Young was referred to us by family. When we started planning our wedding booking Jonathan Young was our only non negotiable. Working with him for our engagement pictures just gave us even more confidence about using him. I highly recommend booking an engagement session, gave us a feel for his flow/style.

On the day of our wedding he was discreet and did not interfere with the day at all. Many times I forgot he was there until the flashes came. He had an assistant as well which I also highly recommend. He did not just take photos he captured moments that literally caused us to be emotional going through upon receiving the final prints. He returned photos to us on the exact date as promised.

We literally cannot say enough about Jonathan. He works tirelessly and is so talented. I am confident he could make any wedding look amazing and make you feel like you are there.

Jonathan was by far the best vendor we had at our wedding. Throughout the process, he provided consistently excellent service, and went above and beyond at every turn. Our photos came out better than I had hoped, and we haven't stopped getting compliments on them. From the beginning, Jonathan's calm demeanor and professionality struck my husband and I, and this turned out to be such an enormous gift on our wedding day. It also helped a lot in the planning process because he obviously knew what he was doing and could offer suggestions based on things that had worked before. Jonathan even ended up helping with last minute things for our wedding because there were some personnel issues at our venue the day of the wedding. Through our engagement photos to our wedding day and after, communication was clear and he delivered on all his promises. He even worked with my husband after our wedding (secretly!) to get some sneak peak photos printed and framed so that my husband could give them to me on my birthday. These little details added up to make our wedding such an amazing experience. Thank you!

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!
