Some Super Kind Testimonials
INCREDIBLE!!! I have a love for photography so finding the right photographer for my wedding was one of my biggest priorities. After seeing some of Jono’s photos online I knew he had the vibe and skills I was looking for. My partner and I went to meet him and were so impressed with his easy going, calm and professional manner. We knew he would be the perfect fit for our wedding.
Jono made every effort to understand our needs and wants and to determine what type of wedding we were hoping to achieve. He always had lots of helpful tips and advice. His pre wedding “questionnaire” helped us to designate jobs, think about parts of the wedding we wanted to make sure got shot (even the finest details!), and made us think about logistics we hadn’t even thought about. It helped us to design our run sheet and ensured the day went off without a hitch.
On the day of the wedding I didn’t even know Jono had arrived, he blended in so effortlessly and was taking the most beautiful candid snaps that could not have been achieved without his stealth! Our photos from our wedding day are just divine. So many beautiful moments captured beautifully.
Jono definitely has an eye for using the location to his advantage. Even though our wedding was by the beach, he choose to shot quite a few shots with the thick bush behind us. At the time, I remember thinking it was an odd choice – but those photos ended up being some of my most treasured photos! They look incredible in black and white.
Jono made sure that we scheduled the “golden hour” of sunset into our run sheet. Not only did this produce some incredible light drenched photos but it allowed my husband and I to finally have some time away from the wedding and take it all in together. I definitely recommend scheduling this time in, as it produced the most beautiful photos at that time of the evening. Not only did Jono capture beautiful photos of our bridal party, but he captured the joy of our guests perfectly. The photos of the reception are filled with huge smiles, big laughs, a few happy tears and some terrible dance moves all being caught in the moment.
I could not recommend Jono more. His lovely nature, excellent communication and professional manner make him a perfect photographer for your wedding – Kate & Chris
Amazing is how I would describe Jonathan David Photography! My husband and I are so grateful we met Jonathan and chose him to capture our special day. Jonathan was able to capture the story of our day beautifully and the photos are so natural. It was important to me that the photos were not ‘posey’ and fake and Jono is the exact opposite of that! When meeting him, he makes you feel like you’ve been friends for years – he was helpful, professional and you feel really comfortable around him. I didn’t even notice him running around on the day – he just makes it so effortless. Thanks for everything Jono!!!! – Stephanie & Frank
I work as a professional Visual FX artist, so I’m rather fussy when it comes to imagery. When I was searching for a photographer, I was looking for both technical and artistic clues such as composition, detail, lighting, creativity etc, to help guide me in my decision. When I poured through Jono’s work, it was immediately obvious that he possessed the skills and the style that I was looking for. His colour and black & white photos show that he has an appreciation and understanding of colour and tone, both of which are nicely balanced. His composition is considered and you can tell that he’s always looking for interesting angles. He captures those great natural moments, which is testament to how relaxed people feel around him.
Jono is a real nice dude and right from the start he made us feel completely comfortable. His experience and great communication skills really showed, as he walked us through how the day would run, which took out a lot of the guess work and helped put our minds at ease. He made sure we left some time between the speeches to duck away for secluded photos of just us during ‘magic hour’ which produced some of our favourite photos and it also afforded us a rare moment of quiet time together.
Jono also doubled as a bit of coordinator on the day, keeping a close eye on the schedule and making sure things ran smoothly. Along with his second photographer Britt, he managed to be everywhere! He stealthily moved around, capturing all the moments that we remember, but also vitally, the ones we didn’t get to see. He took some great dance floor photos, which can be very tricky to get right, given the low light.
Jono documented our wedding with the most beautifully candid shots, and he did so with a positive energy and always had a smile on his face. He made a lasting impression on us and our guests and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer.
Big thanks again Jono! And thanks to Britt too! We’re so stoked that you guys were a part of our special day. – Owen & Bianca
Jono, I don’t know how to thank you and Britt enough. Not only were you an amazing photographer but the two of you really went above and beyond in all aspects. You treated Daniel and I like old friends, ensuring we were at ease from the very beginning. You listened to what we wanted on our day and BOY DID YOU DELIVER. Our photos tell the story of our day. You captured every little detail; my bridal party zombie walking down the aisle, the kids faces as we became a family, my grandparents surprise at being called forward, a certain missing toe can even be spotted late in the night – EVERYTHING. Our day would not have been the same without you. Can I just say; the emotion you captured is like none I have ever seen before. And I’m not just saying that because they are my photos. I’m saying that because it’s true. Your pictures tell our story. I will forever be grateful and indeed indebted to you and Brit for your work. – Felicity & Daniel
You captured so many great images from our engagement and wedding! Whenever we see them it takes us back in time – as if it were our wedding day all over again. Thank you so much for creating images we will enjoy and cherish for a lifetime! – Joshua & Charisse
Jono truly is a master at his craft. He is organised yet easy going, he was so patient with all our questions and his photos are phenomenal.
Everyone we have shown our photos to is amazed with the quality and the fact that Jono really managed to capture the magic of the day. For a couple who never show their teeth or show too much emotion in photos, he has given us such a phenomenal keepsake that really documents how we remembered our wedding; the most amazing time we have ever had, surrounded by so much love, joy and laughter. Our guests were also very chuffed when I sent them gorgeous photos of themselves that Jono had taken throughout the evening while they were having a dance or laughing along to the speeches.
Jono is so professional, but it didn’t feel like we had a stranger with us. He made us laugh, got our ‘golden hour’ shots, blended into our party so seamlessly and created such an amazing record for us. We love his work! – Laura & Alex
There’s a lot of pressure on a wedding photographer but Jono absolutely delivered. I’ve had people tell me that our wedding photos are the best photos they’ve ever seen.
My husband was apprehensive about a photographer ‘getting in the way’ and ‘bossing us around’ on our day. But the moment we met Jono – prior to the wedding – we knew that he wouldn’t be one of ‘those’ photographers. Jono’s energy was calm, he was professional, but he had a lot of fun with us. Most of our photos are of us just laughing. It was one of the highlights of our day. We were given room to breathe, to connect with each other, and Jono was off in the distance or in the bushes snapping away, we didn’t even notice him half the time.
We honestly can’t recommend Jono enough! – Beth & Michael
We are just so in love with our photos! After a lot of research, we found Jono and his incredible work. He was easy to deal with in the lead up, gave us tools to help our day run smoothly, and kept us nice and relaxed during the whole process. On the day, he really was a fly on the wall and captured wonderful moments with our friends and family. Thanks again Jono! – Jenna & Mitchell
Oh my goodness gracious me!!! Jono! You have outdone yourself!!! The photos are bloody amazing. Thank you so much, the slideshow is just so beautiful and you truly captured the emotions of people, the smiles and the laughter and the tears, it is honestly just so perfect! – Joshua & Sheba
When there are so many choices out there, how to decide on the best wedding photographer for your special day? This was the top of my list and ranked even above the selection of a dress! I think what first attracted us to Jono was the simple elegance of his website. We thought such an eye for layout and design must surely translate to beautiful photography and we weren’t disappointed! Jono was able to bring a natural warmth to our wedding photos and really captured the sense of fun in our friends and family. He was professional and personable even going so far as to instruct the entire groom’s party on the correct attachment of a boutonniere. We now have the most wonderful collection of memories from our wedding captured on film and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jono for any special event. Thanks Jono! – Cyrus & Katherine
Hey Jono, The photos are AMAZING! We’re absolutely stoked with how they look. You’ve captured the mood and the moments perfectly, but also the little details like the bunting in the wind, we love them. You absolutely nailed it. You captured the emotion and peoples reactions and you’ve really screwed up my productivity levels at work this morning! :) Thanks again! That’s really made my week.
We’ve had so many great comments from people about your photos. Even friends who weren’t there have commented on how great the fun and relaxed atmosphere was, and that’s just from them seeing the pics online. As my brother said, a good photographer gets pretty photos, a really great photographer can capture the atmosphere and mood of an event – Andrew & Liana
