About Me

Hi, my name is Jon.

I love anything with Green Tea, Figs or Watermelon.
My favourite smells are that of baked goods & coffee beans roasting.
An ideal holiday would include massages, fresh seafood, good weather & great company.
If I wasn’t a photographer, I would probably be in Advertising or Graphic Design.
I love clever ads. I also have a fondness for Minimalism & Negative Space.
3 things I look for in a photograph – Honesty, Whimsy & A Story.
3 things I value in a wedding as a photographer – Everyday Moments, Good Light & Joy
5 words to describe my photography – Honest, Calm, Heartfelt, Genuine & Intuitive
One of my life’s goal is to be a great dad. I’m glad my job will allow me to spend lots of time with my kids in the future.
My favourite time of the year is the mix of summer & autumn, when the leaves start to change in colour but the sun still stays late.
I miss my grandfather alot. He taught me to work hard, be kind & to be generous.
My favourite quote about love is by CS Lewis here. I love how he has the ability to be so poetically authentic.

I’m not one for awards or accolades, but in 2012, I was blessed enough to be nominated (without even realising!) to be in the running for the Top 10 Photographers in the World by American Photo. I believe what I do is first and foremost for the couple, then any extra publicity or awards is a bonus.

I’ve also been privileged enough to have been featured or interview a couple of times. You can check out the features on the links below.
Eat Drink Chic, Fancy! Design Blog, NoubaRetro Sundays, The Wedding Notebook, Road Trip Nation.

My images have also graced the pages of publications such as Hello May, Fete Press, Wedding Style Guide, Just Married, Hitched (now known as Hooray), Wedding Flowers UK, G Magazine & the wedding catalogue of John Lewis, UK.
