EMOTIVE, EXPRESSIVE, UNPOSED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY 

I often see photographers say you won’t see them all day and they will be hiding in the corner, snapping photos from afar.

This isn’t me. I will be in amongst the action, capturing moments so when you look back on the photos it feels as if you’re there again, re-living your day.

But fear not, this doesn’t mean I’m annoying and in the way! In fact I hear time and time again people soon forget I’m around and they say I was good fun and just like I was a friend of theirs!

Simply put I blend in as if I’m a guest meaning it doesn’t feel like you have a photographer. You will see me smiling away a lot and enjoying myself. I am here, there and everywhere!

My style is 95% documentary wedding photographer (also known as reportage or photojournalist) and 5% portraits.

In effect this means my approach is to tell the story of your day in a down- to-earth, natural style, capturing all of those special moments, and details, that make your wedding personal to you and enable you to relive your day.

"My work is centered around the energy and emotion of a wedding day." 

I do love beautiful portraits too so a small chunk of your day will be consciously going for photos (we’re talking 20/25 min max, hopefully at sunset). I still make this fun though and as natural as possible (no awkward or cheesy poses!)

I aim to produce photographs that are full of life and emotion - photos that bring back the feelings, not just a record of what happened.

I really enjoy photographing weddings – I give 110% to every single one.

I’ve photographed many weddings over the years, and that experience means I can provide a calm and confident presence on the day.

"Jonny is the ultimate legend in every sense, his preparation and professionalism are unbelievable but he is the biggest legend ever on the day - everyone thought he was one of our old friends as he's so relaxed and part of the day!

He made our day an absolute joy! He is so creative and captured our day perfectly! It was the most joyful, perfect, happy day and it comes across in every photo! Jonny is the best wedding photographer I have ever met and we are so so so grateful to him!

Jonny - you are the biggest legend!"

10 WAYS TO DESCRIBE MY STYLe

I love photos like this one, as for me it’s a beautiful, natural moment when Emma's Dad handed her over to Simon just as they came down the aisle. The emotion was raw and so heartfelt. This is what I live for as a wedding photographer!

1. Candid moments
personal to you

I love photos of action and fun. Throughout a wedding day I’ll be mixing in and taking in all the action. I don’t hide in the corner with a big telephoto zoom, just taking lots of headshots. Instead I’m up close and part of the action. This gives you photos with a lot more life to them, like you’re back there again.

2. UP, CLOSE AND
IN THE THICK OF IT

I am passionate about creative wedding photography. I place real importance on composition and photos which are visually pleasing. I love to try and give you photos that aren’t just the standard and expected shots.

3. CREATIVE AND DYNAMIC

I’m a wear my heart on my sleeve type of guy. So I love to capture emotion. This type of shot is a moment I’m always on the look out for during your day as it’s these moments that are what make your wedding day what it is.

4. EMOTIONS AT THE HEART

The majority of my photos are natural and unposed. But I do think it’s a great investment to spend 20-30 minutes of your day getting some portraits that can go on your living room wall. I like my portraits to have some drama to them. Whether it’s you both in a beautiful setting, or just up close being in love.

5. PORTRAITS FIT FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM WALL

I know you don’t just want 700 photos of you. Who was at your wedding is just as important. So I always aim to get a wide range of photos from your day. Whilst you are both my number one focus, I will always go after more moments of your family and guests to capture them all having a great time!

6. A WIDE COVERAGE OF EVERYONE AT YOUR DAY (NOT JUST YOU!)

I think some set-up group photos still have their place at a wedding. I don’t recommend lots of formal shots (usually just 8-10) as it gets quite tedious for you, and it eats into your day (I’d much prefer to see you having fun and mingling with your guests!). Getting some portraits of you and your family, and wedding party (think bridesmaids and ushers) are worth getting though, so I always suggest allowing around 30-40 minutes for this. But if you want endless combinations of aunties, cousins and friends from every era, I sadly won’t be right for you.

7. PHOTOS WITH those who MATTER TO YOU

The vast majority of my work is produced using natural, available, light. At the heart of beautiful wedding photography is lovely light. Light makes a photo. I will often look to do some portraits at dusk – as this light is magical.

8. I LOVE TO WORK WITH BEAUTIFUL LIGHT

I will chat to your guests, make friends and blend in so no-one feels like I’m the photographer. I want to be Jonny at the wedding and I’m proud so many of my couples are now friends! Here’s me with Es and Nick in summer 2017!

9. I LOVE TO BLEND IN, HAVE FUN & BE LIKE ONE OF YOUR GUESTS!

My approach is to tell the story of your day – so that means I’ll be shooting well into the party (not disappearing after the first dance!). You'll get to look back at all your guests having an awesome time!

10. I’M WITH YOU UNTIL THE PARTY ends
