A Storyteller with a Lens
I don't think the English language has sufficient words of praise to convey how much we loved working with Jonathan.
We lucked into our hiring of Jonathan through his wife, Annie, who we contracted as our day-of coordinator. When we heard her husband was a photographer, and they often work as a team, we thought that was
1.) Adorable and super romantic, and
2.) A good practical solution for us
Little did we know we'd just hired the male equivalent of Annie Leibovitz!! :D
Due to crazy schedules and this being a destination wedding, we didn't get a chance to meet Jonathan until we were walking down the aisle. But from the moment he came up and said hi, we knew we'd made a great choice. He was positive, a great communicator, adaptable and quick, loaded with more camera gear than I'd ever seen a single person carrying, LOL, and looked like he was having a great time, despite the overcast skies.
He did a phenomenal job of capturing everything we were hoping for from the ceremony. And we had so much fun working with him afterward for the wedding party photos and bride & groom portraits. He came up with really fun ideas to highlight the uniqueness of our ethnic fusion wedding (including having our guys throw umbrellas up in the air :D)
We were so fortunate, because the sun broke through the clouds right as we were taking those photos, gilding the sand, and tipping the waves with gold. And that's when the magic really started. The photos he captured during this time have caused more gasps of amazement from family and friends than I can count.
Even more amazing was how quickly he sent us sneak peek photos. He had some of the most stunning sent to us before our reception even ended that night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you're looking for a photographer, don't even waste your time looking anywhere else!!!!!!! Jonathan is an artist and storyteller with a lens, and my only regret is that we couldn't afford to hire him to capture every single moment of the entire weekend. Thank you for everything, Jonathan. We are so grateful.

A Natural Eye!
Having the right photographer was the highest priority on my wedding list! I wanted someone that could capture all those little amazing moments through out the day that as a bride you can miss because the day goes by so fast. I knew Jonathan would do an amazing job because I had seen his work from my friend's wedding but the photos were still beyond my expectations! Most of the time I had no idea he was even there and I'm so incredibly great full that he got all these incredible shots of moments I had already forgot about. I know there are a million photographers out there but only a few like Jonathan that has that organic natural ability to capture your most priceless moments.

Jonathan was a great photographer! I communicated my needs to him and he was very flexible with availability when many other photographers in the area turned me down. He was also very patient, especially when it started to come down to the wire for photos and my bridesmaids and I were scrambling to get ready. The time it took to receive my photos was accurate and reasonable, and the final product was so beautiful. I highly recommend him!

Our experience with Jonathan was wonderful. He was very detailed and professional. We couldn’t have chosen a better photographer to capture our wedding. Thanks Jonathan for the beautiful pictures! 😍
Isabel & Emilio - Panama City Beach, FL
Jonathan was an amazing photographer. My husband and I went on our first beach vacation to Navarre and wanted to make sure we had pictures to look back on in the years to come. I messaged Jonathon early in the week and he was able to get me and my husband in for a session before we left town! He was very patient and worked so well with us. Our pictures turned out beautiful and we are so thankful for Jonathan! If your looking for someone who will be patient and take some breathtaking photos in Florida, look no further than Jonathan. He is the best!

Jonathan was great to work with- we were traveling from out of state, but he made the process so easy and I love the photos from our wedding day! Thank you!

Jonathan exceeded our expectations. His fun and exciting attitude made it easy for us to relax and have fun without the stress. He captured every moment down to each detail. He was prompt to answer any questions or concerns that I had. Jonathan had plenty of ideas for photos and took any suggestions I had as well. Thank you Jonathan for making our destination wedding complete and effortless.

Jonathan, first and most Thank you for your amazing work on our wedding photos. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. The way you handled everything was way beyond our expectations especially taking such wonderful photos even throughout the unexpected strong hurricane winds from Nate. You noticed every detail and captured every photograph we wanted and many more. Every single one of the photos are breath taking. Looking through them made us relive the emotions felt in those special moments and you achieved to capture them all. We are so blessed and grateful that your talent has created such amazing and memorable photos that will last us a lifetime!
Johanna & Jose - Pensacola Beach, FL
We are so glad we chose Jonathan to photograph our wedding. It was a positive experience from the beginning. He was always quick to respond. He even took the time to call me before the wedding so he could find out our expectations. He made it so easy to plan that part of a destination wedding. We are more than pleased with the pictures he took and would highly recommend him!
