Hi, I'm Jonathan and I'm a fine art wedding photographer based in Perth, Western Australia.
The day I married my best friend and getting to celebrate it with our closest friends and family is a memory that I will cherish forever. Till this day, we still take out our wedding album every now and then to remind us of that day, and more importantly, to remember the commitment we had made to each other.
3 words come to mind when I think of the word "wedding".
Celebration. Marriage. Love.
A wedding is a celebration marking the beginning of a marriage. But the most important thing is love. Without love there can be no successful marriage, and without a successful marriage a wedding means nothing. My job is to document those in between moments during your celebration, to translate that into a tangible form where you can not only pass it down to future generations, but also to reflect back in tougher times to remind you of the vows that you've made to each other.
My Shooting Style
Being a fine art wedding photographer means that I aim to document your day not just accurately but also in the most beautiful way possible - I take a photojournalistic approach for most parts of the day, but if it requires me to insert myself into a scene to provide you with more beautiful images, then that is what I will do. I like to describe my images as candid, emotional, romantic & airy. I love making real connections with my couples and bringing out their personalities in my portraits, in order to evoke feelings of genuine love & affection in my images.
I'm also an avid film shooter. I believe that shooting on film slows down the photographer, so that much more thought is put into each and every frame. This results in much stronger images. Not only that, but I firmly believe that film produces photographs that has this organic, soft, and dreamy quality that is difficult to reproduce in digital - the tonal qualities, the colour, and the texture of it is just out of this world! I love the timeless feel of film, but I also recognise the speed & reliability of digital. As my client, you will get the best of both worlds!
While I specialise in wedding photography (that includes destination weddings too), I also love shooting engagements and lifestyle portraiture as well.
If you like what you see, please get in touch with me here. It would be my honour to document your story.
