I’m Jon and I’m a wedding photographer.
“For me, Wedding Photography is capturing the emotion, in the emotive context it is made"
You only do this once, so lets do it RIGHT.
Based in the East Midlands, I take super cool wedding photos for a living day in day out.
By now I guess you have seen many 'alternative', 'creative' and 'documentary' wedding photographers, but what exactly do they mean by their description of this? Is it their way of conducting the day, the way they produce the images to you or is it, like me, could it be their mindset?
I exert myself on my work being personal and non-conformative to a label, so the images I capture have no boundaries and simply play on the emotive aspect of the wedding day. I love to photograph weddings in the nature that they happen, I never like to set anything up. If the bride has a moment of pure reflection then this is great to capture, however equally, if this doesn't occur then I will not force this moment.
Likewise, every single wedding is different and unique, so I aim to treat every wedding as a completely new project no matter how many times I have shot at that venue. There is always a place at any venue which will provide 'nice' photographs, or somebody will have an idea what will make a 'good picture', but if that idea doesn't happen then I can't photograph it. I never imply anything onto my clients and just capture in the moment.
So what makes a GREAT photographer; the images they produce most definitely, but whats behind these? In my honest opinion it comes down to loving your clients and providing them all with the service and appreciation that they deserve, closely followed by an informative, detailed and visionary mind. To be able to produce stunning images all day long, you need to find your passion, and photography for me is exactly that, so whether its the first shot of the day or the last, I promise to put as much commitment into each and every image. This allows me to make images of the whole family in attendance for you to enjoy and share with each other, and most importantly for future generations to come.
Finally my main aim for your wedding imagery is to produce you with a set of stunning, emotive images, which evoke personal memories for you and your partner of the magical wedding day. I want to produce little sparks of beauty for you; which allows you to travel back in time and remember all the special moments and memories that were made that day.
