Wedding photography for the 21st Century
Operating a pose-free, cheese-free policy
Keeping it real like Ian Beale
Hi I'm Jonny, a wedding photographer living in the heart of the Cotswolds who genuinely loves what he does for a living. I get to shoot weddings throughout the UK and Europe with docu-style photography full of irreverent humour and joy.
I, JONNY, TAKE THEE.. PHOTOS
GETTING HITCHED? HI FIVES ALL ROUND!
My guess is, in your search for a wedding photographer, you’re looking for someone special. If you want a documentary style snapper to capture all the chaos and good times, who’s honest and fuss-free, then welcome to my humble little corner of the internet.
The way I shoot means you can just be yourself, relax completely and soak up every bit of your day without having to worry about posing for photos. I’m very laid back and I believe capturing the emotion and details of a wedding is best done without bossing people around or faffing about with loads of equipment. I like to keep things simple.
My style is creative and unobtrusive, it’s what’s known these days at “docu-style photography” which basically means I don’t strive to take hundreds of formal photos and try to record the day as it happens in a creative way. It’s about being in the moment and seeing things for what they are with as little posing as possible. Whilst it’s important I’m informed on who’s going to be where and the timings of the day, I actually don’t plan anything in great detail. I prefer to let events unfold naturally and capture what’s in front of me.
But mostly, my biggest aim is to give you a set of photographs that’ll knock your socks off.
Without sounding like a raging cliche, let’s keep it real folks.

"Wow, wow, wow and thank you so much!!! We absolutely love the photos and so glad we chose you to capture our special day. You were a pleasure to work with and made us both feel very relaxed, calm and confident. Lots of guests commented how they don’t even remember you there!? Not sure if that’s a good thing or not?! We’ve been through the photos many times and shared with friends and family who all love them too."

"We are over-the-moon we booked Jonny! We spoke to a few other photographers, it was all quite overwhelming. After speaking to Jonny and listening to the way he liked to work, it felt like the right decision to go with him. We weren't disappointed! Friendly & professional. He made people feel at ease and didn't get in the way unnecessarily. Took the time to get to know us and what we wanted prior to the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble! He got on well with everyone and even had a little dance at the end. He didn't waste time on 'staged' shots and was able to really capture all the key moments of the day when people were looking natural and having fun!"

"We prioritised getting a good photographer and entertainment. In hindsight this was a great decision. At first we thought that the price it seemed like a lot of money to pay for a photographer, but people kept reminding us that the photos are something that we'd have for the rest of our lives, and were therefore worth spending money on. Alejandra was very nervous in waiting for Jonny's call, after we'd initially emailed him, to find out whether he'd be free on our big day - she knew she wanted him as our photographer! We knew without even having seen any of the photos that we'd made the right choice, and receiving the final pictures just confirmed that to us. We couldn't have been happier. Jonny is a lovely, calm, funny, and really down to earth guy, which makes him a particularly beneficial presence on a day which can at times be stressful and overwhelming. He was great interacting with the guests, but also very subtle when taking photos. He seemed just as excited (maybe even more!) when taking a few post-ceremony photos with just the two of us in Central Oxford! It was fun to see a few teasers on Instagram while waiting for all of the photos to be ready. More than anything, Jonny's style of photos speak for themselves, the pictures he produces are so unique, and we absolutely love them! Book him now before someone else does! You'll regret it if you don't. Best money we spent for our wedding. I'm already waiting for a close friend to get engaged so that I can recommend JB to them :)"
