Today’s modern bride is looking for more personality, more uniqueness and more passion. As it so happens, that’s what I want out of my photography! When paired together with the same vision, you’ll be amazed at what we can accomplish! My hope is to bring a sense of energy and movement that showcases your relationship in a way that highlights your interests as well as your heart.

Hi! I’m Jon
I’m not very good at focusing on myself. And the thought of a bio that is just about me, and not necessarily my work, is unnerving. But if we’re to become friends, the flow of information has to begin somewhere; that might as well be with me! But you have to promise to go next (thinking positively).
I live in the middle of nowhere. Sounds like the opening line to a book, but it’s true! The village of Swaffham Prior has about 700 people. I love the solitude of remote living because It’s a great place to think and sketch out ideas for new imagery. But I don’t stay in solitude for long! My love, Dee, and our little boy, Jacob, happily fill the quiet with laughter (amongst other various and sundry noises).
I love meeting people, hearing their stories, asking them questions and basically being a good listener. It’s amazing what I’ve learned just by keeping my trap closed. When I travel alone this is a favourite passtime. You should try it sometime!
I have a background in Mechanical Engineering. This strengthened the part of my brain that loves analyses. I guess that’s why I can’t walk through a mall without looking at the window shop art and breaking down their lighting set-ups. If you think that’s a bit odd, let me chase that thought by letting you know I also love to build things with my hands. That makes me more of a man’s man, yes?
Basically, I’m just a regular chap who who enjoys people and enjoys creating. And that’s what I’d like to offer you. Your turn.
What do i do?
There aren’t a lot of photographers who can say that they truly love corporate work, but I’m one of them. I think it’s because I’ve taken a different approach than many. The face of a business should be as individual and unique as that of a bride. I bring my creative, modern approach into all areas of my work, not just to weddings. When it comes to business head shots, I work in a fun, relaxed way in order to bring out the real personalities of you and your employees. When photographing your products or work site, my goal is to bring a 21st century feel, rather than maintaining the status-quo. Whether through lighting, angles or simplicity, my services are geared to showcase your business in the best way possible.
What else do I love?
DeeShe's my home. There's nothing like having a supportive partner when you're in an emotionally charged job like once-in-a-lifetime event photography. She's like the beautiful little foamy leaf that baristas put on the tops of coffee. She softens my bite and makes me look good.
JacobHe's my heart. Nothing can make a grown man turn into mush like his child. He's the very remake of Peter Pan: loads of fun and imagination with the ability to be as stubborn as they come. It's the most wondrous thing to watch this boy grow. I couldn't be more proud than to be his Dad.
TravelThere's nothing quite like boarding an airplane and heading to someplace new. I don't care if it's to a tiny, quiet countryside or a loud, over-crowded city. Getting out and experiencing new places is a huge part of how I'm wired. I've been lucky enough to experience 30+ countries over the years, but there's still no place like home.
CoffeeWhat can I say. I love the stuff. It gives me energy, keeps my mind moving, and meeting others for it is one of the best ways to build friendships. A day without coffee is like... well, I don't really know. And I don't plan to find out.
My 1967 VW CamperLove it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it. Love it.
DIYMy home has looks like a wood cutters mill at times. Whenever I get time I'm out there building tables, go-carts for Jacob or bomb proof sheds (look at this one above). Engineering will always be part of me.

Gran Bahia Principe, Dominican Republic Wedding // Janice & James // Pt 2
Bahia Prinicipe island resort has it all for the perfect wedding
Janice & James’s choose the Gran Bahia Principe Resort in Sumana for their wedding, and it’s easy to see why. Let me list what is amazing about this place:
A beautiful shaded terrace for a wedding
west facing beach for epic sunset portraits
Mediterranean restaurant serving amazing food and transforms into a brilliant space for crazy dancing
another private beach with bar for lantern launching and some cool cigar smoking photos
and a vast swimming pool for a trash the dress shoot the day after the wedding
This post is part 2 of their wedding. If you missed part 1 why not check it out to get all the build up before the ceremony. This part 2 series starts off just as Janice met James on the terrace. About to start their vows and start a magical journey together. Below are a few photos from the 1000+ that will be delivered. Congratulations to you both
Sunset beach wedding portraits
Once the ceremony was done, hugs and high 5′s all dished out Janice and James were whisked off to the beach so we could get some portraits.
Next to the pool and literally a stone throw from the beach was the delightful Mediterranean restaurant. Night family portraits, excellent food, speeches, and some crazy dancing all under one roof.
Dancing done we all headed to the other side of the island for more merriment. Rum and cigars was the order and these guys knew how to get some smoke clouds going. After everyone had recovered from an epic cigar puffing session Janice and James launched 20 lanterns from the beach. With a pretty stiff off shore wind it was difficult to get them going. But those that did make it into the air may have made it to Spain, they went like rockets!
Trash the dress swimming pool style
I can’t believe these guys were up for this, but hats off to them for their spirit and character. It’s one way to get rid of the hangover!
Good on you Janice and James, top people
An amazing wedding. Thank you so much Janice and James for trusting your wedding coverage to me. You are one crazy couple and I truly enjoyed every moment with you, your friends and family. I was made so welcome and it was a pleasure to share this experience with you. We may all meet again in 2015 in Mexico, lets make that happen x
