Who is the man behind the camera?
I’m Jonathan, Newcastle born, a proud and friendly Geordie!
Since the Geordies are known for their approachable nature, I actually found myself following a career in retail customer service for almost 15 years. But it is this patience and understanding that I have taken with me from my time in retail that gives me a unique ability in my approach to meet, work with, and truly understand what you want from your wedding photographer on your special day. Not forgetting that famous Geordie charm, I will blend in with your guests and capture your cherished moments, effortlessly.
My interest and passion for photography was always there bubbling away in the background. I would be that guy at the family events taking pictures, spending too long photographing the sunset on holiday and documenting anything I could.
I simply love taking photo’s and as my Wife would say, I can be fairly annoying with the amount I like to take, so it’s a good job I turned my passion into my dream career!
Since then, I haven’t looked back. It is scary to turn your life a little upside down, but I was always a photographer, I just wasn’t being paid to be one! Now I can say I’m living my dream. I have had the pleasure of documenting weddings across the UK and would love to capture your love story.
