Michelle: “The photoshoot that we did with Jonathan was very laid back and super quick. It is almost unbelievable how fast he works and when you see how amazing the results are! He gives just enough guidance to help you be confidently natural during the shoot – nothing seems or turns out overly posed. He captured so much emotion and so many faces of our little Sophia that we often see at home and long to share with others and now we can! Jonathan is so friendly and incredibly professional as he works and we couldn't have been happier with the results!”

Isabel and Steve: “Jonathan is a master photographer. He has a totally unique gift for capturing the very essence of who we are. I have never seen photographs that carry such a genuine reflection of our love and romance; they are beautiful. I couldn't stop looking at them for hours after we received them. He is so much more than an artist but a people-lover and this makes the whole experience such fun and full of laughter and joy. The shoot itself whizzed by and was a treasured memory! Thank you Jonathan for these stunning pictures, we adore them.”

Anne: “I absolutely loved my shoot with Jonathan – not only because the end results look truly amazing, but also because the shoot itself was so much fun and felt like a relaxed Sunday morning walk with a friend. I believe it is the friendly and relaxed atmosphere during the shoots that makes Jonathan’s pictures so special – they capture wonderful little moments of life, full of beauty and joy.”

Sarah: “I saw a friend at the weekend and she and her new husband were raving about Jonathan – what an encouragement he was to them, and how welcoming he had been of this friend’s fiancée, and how much they enjoyed having him as their wedding photographer. Matt’s best man and his wife also said that his photos were the best wedding photos that they had ever seen. I love our photos too – I think that Jonathan is very gifted.”

Mary: “It’s clear that Jonathan loves what he does! The family photo shoot we did with him was energetic and fun. In a two hour session, we were able to go to several locations and the end results are really lovely. Jonathan was able to capture all of our personalities in a very natural way. He was especially able to capture our little girl’s character and I’m so thrilled to have some precious images of her that show just who she is. I definitely recommend Jonathan for families who want to have an easy, stress free photo session with stunning results.”

Thea: “Our engagement photoshoot with Jonathan was like a marriage preparation session. Streams of anecdotes and kind advice all whilst he took stunning photos. I fell more in love with Dom throughout the whole process.”

Heather: “We are so thrilled that we had Jonathan take our family pictures – we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out. He was incredibly helpful and flexible, and was happy to take requests as well, a rarity among photographers! He made the morning fun and made even my husband (who wasn’t thrilled at the idea of a morning of picture taking) felt like it was just a regular day at the park. Even our toddlers enjoyed it! We love the pictures and will treasure them as our kids get older.”

Dominic: “I can't stop looking at these wedding images and smiling. A stunning set of photographs from a wonderful photographer – I highly, highly recommend Jonathan to do your wedding. He is fun, easy going, delightful. The composition, colour and grading, creativity of these shots is excellent. He captures the essence of people better than anyone I know... so grateful.”

Ali: “The photo shoot that the children had with Jonathan was a relaxed affair – they immediately felt at ease and natural with him and the resulting photos captured their personalities, and their beauty perfectly. This is quite an achievement, as our children often take a while to ‘warm up’ to new people.”

Rollo: “With Jonathan it is fair to say we go the complete package for hiring a photographer (for our three-day music festival). He was extremely enthusiastic about our event from the word go and could not have been more helpful throughout the weekend. He was also unobtrusive when taking pictures of the delegates but it was clear that he was all over the site and working extremely hard. However, this is all well and good but the proof really has to be in the pudding when you hire a photographer and we were absolutely delighted by the work Jonathan produced. The quality of the photography was first class; he managed to express the feel for the event through his pictures which was exactly what we required. And the sheer volume of pictures was incredibly helpful for us to choose not just excellent photographs but the same scene and moment from several different angles.”

Chris and Pattie: “We have used Jonathan for our wedding photography and a couple of family shoots since and we love his work. He is always great fun to work with, makes you laugh, puts you at ease and so the photos are really natural. Highly recommend.”

Sarah: “The photos he has taken of my five year old son have brought out his true personality. Jonathan had the knack of getting on the same wavelength as Max and very quickly putting him at his ease so he and my son had real fun when the photos were being taken and forgot the camera was there. Jonathan also chose a great location – by Sandford Lock in Oxfordshire – and gained access, by speaking nicely to the lock keeper, to an area normally not open to the public. The photos are really natural and when I look at them, now and the future, I can see Max doing what he does best... playing and enjoying being a little boy.”

Fiona and Steve: “Our wedding photos were amazing! Every moment was captured, and captured well, scenes from the day, both traditional and distinct to our wedding; from pre-wedding primping to shots of the procession before it entered; candids at the altar and at our reception; all of them, we wonderfully won't forget now. Jonathan, you've been a dude throughout this whole season pre- and post-wedding. Know that we love you and are thankful for you.”

Sharon: “Jonathan is so brilliant at drawing out new mothers’ adoration and babies delight.”

Dominic: “Jonathan has a wonderful way of making posing for portraits easy and fun! In the past I have found such an exercise exhausting and awkward – but I really enjoyed the experience and felt like I was able to just be myself and allow him to capture that creatively. I wasn't surprised by the outcome – his work is sensitive, deep and yet playful, it's full of the richness of life. Jonathan's photography is also technically strong, being wonderfully composed and with perfect lighting.”

Pete and Scarlett: “We booked Jonathan to take some family snaps when we where engaged and loved how natural the shoot was. He was just chatting to us so we felt really comfortable and took snaps while chatting, just asking us to do this and that but always very naturally. We have since had a shoot while pregnant of our second child and now with both our children. He had managed to make both our children want to get photographed when normally it's quite hard. All three shoots have been such a pleasure. Thank you Jonathan for giving us great memories we can look at everyday!”

Maria and Michael: “I can't sing Jonathan's praises enough. He went above and beyond what we could have expected from him and the result was just exceptional. We have some magical photos for our album now, better than loads of photos I have seen from other wedding albums and he made the whole experience effortless.”

Anna and David: “Jonathan was an absolute pleasure to work with! We're so happy with our wedding photos and how he captured the day. He not only captured the day beautifully but kept us calm in the lead up to the big day and during the day too. We highly recommend Jonathan as a photographer for your wedding!”
