HIGH FIVESJust a few reviews...

“When I saw some photos from an engagement photo shoot Jonathan had done on the Style Me Pretty blog I was so drawn to them. I loved his use of black and white photos and the natural, un-posed quality. They just seemed efforlessly, naturally beautiful, yet very real at the same time. I really wanted our wedding photos to capture the emotions from the day, and Jonathan did that PERFECTLY. I was blown away when I first saw the images from our day, they are better than I had ever dreamed. I was worried my then fiance would feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, but Jonathan is very down to earth and super nice so it was totally not an issue. When I first met Jonathan and asked him what his style was like he said something like “I just take pictures of what happens.” Very true, but he does it so well :)” – ANNA + BRENDAN

“Honestly I don’t think words can describe my love for my photographer! As a bride you know that the pictures are what you are going to have left–the day goes by so fast, and the memories stay forever, but the pictures are what you have to look at over the years. Because of that, my Husband and I knew this we put a lot of time and effort into searching for the perfect photographer, and we found that–hands down when we met John McBride. We just received our pictures a few days ago and I am in love with almost every single one–I have no idea how I can choose for an album! John was professional but also fun to be around, my husband and I didn’t feel awkward at all, we just went about our day normally and he captured it. I highly HIGHLY recommend John to anybody out there..you won’t be disappointed! I give him an A+.” – CARRIE + JOEL

Jonathan was the PERFECT photographer! We live in Montana but got married in Delaware and it was really easy to work with him, even from 2,000 miles away. He is friendly, fun, laid back and went with the flow of our non-traditional wedding reception in a barn. We didn’t give him a lot to work with – I was already in my dress when he showed up, we had no first dance, no cake cutting, pretty much none of your traditional wedding reception “events.” And we gave him even less direction – “We just want pictures of people having fun.” And he captured the event beautifully! The photos are fantastic. My husband and I are most amazed at the little moments he captured on film. Two of our favorites are of Andy’s grandmother reaching out to hold his hand as we walked down the aisle after the ceremony and one of my Dad leaning against a tree sneaking a smoke during the reception. He managed to capture my Dad’s quirky personality. My Dad has passed away in March and I have turned to Jonathan’s photos of him so many times in the last four months. Anyway, I feel like I can’t adequately do his work justice in words. Just know that my husband and I are so incredibly grateful to have had him photograph our wedding and highly recommend him.”             – CHERYL + ANDY

“I LOVE JONATHAN! He did SUCH an amazing job capturing our adventurous day! I was luckily enough to hire him based on the work he did for my friends’ wedding and I was not disappointed with the amazing job he did for my own. Every picture is beautifully shot and truly captured the entire range of emotions we were all going through on such an exciting day! I would highly recommend working with him again and again!” – BETH + ALAN

“We selected Jonathan after hours of research – reviews, style, price, quality, professionalism, etc. For our engagement pictures and for our wedding photos, Jonathan exceeded our expectations. He is a hard worker with a great eye for detail and a pleasure to be around for a good chunk of the day. We are so thankful for the photographs and the effort he made to select and edit the ones that best capture the day. Go with Jonathan! The quality is great, and is very professional (with his attitude, time management, skill and design of the contract and supporting documents). We are so glad we chose him! Recommend!” – KADI + ERIC

“We were so happy to have Jonathan as our photographer. He was the photographer for my sister, so we knew he would do a wonderful job. His artistic eye captures the wedding from a unique perspective. If you have specific pictures in mind, he will make sure to captures those as well. The pictures he took and the album he created for us exceeded our expectations! We will definitely keep Jonathan in mind for future events!” – JACKIE + KEVIN

“We cannot sing Jonathan’s praises enough. He has a beautiful way of capturing a moment and telling a story with no words. From the moment we found his site we knew that is who we wanted to capture our day. Our experience with him has been beyond fantastic . Our engagement photos and session were amazing and we know our wedding photos will be just as beautiful. A true artist, who is down to earth, fun and a complete professional.” – MIA + WYATT

“I cannot even begin to explain my wonderful experience with Jonathan, but this is a review so I will try! We conducted quite a search for the perfect wedding photographer and we definitely found everything that we wanted in Jonathan. First, he photos are breathtaking. As I looked through his website and blog I was moved by his ability to capture the feelings of the day. In his portfolio you can see how he strives to really capture those “moments” of your day. For example, he took a priceless photo of my dad beginning to cry the first time that he saw me in my dress. This is just one of the many special “moments” that we have a hard copy of thanks to Jonathan.

So not only does he take amazing photos, but he is extremely nice, funny, and overall the kind of guy that you want at your wedding. I met a few photographers with whom I would not want to share my wedding. Jonathan, however, was kind, candid, and a normal guy. On the actual day he was great at organizing my very large bridal party to get all of our pictures taken so that everyone could party. I would say our group photos were completed within 20 minutes or so.

Jonathan is also very responsive to email and very reasonably priced for the quality of his work. We had the photo booth which I would definitely recommend. Also, Jonathan allows you to share the copyright for your photos. This is very important! He gave us all of our photos on a CD so that we own all of them. I have had some friend who had to order each print from their photographer!

Although we own all of our photos, we have gotten most of them printed through Jonathan because the quality is remarkable. We also ordered our fine art book from Jonathan which we love. All in all, I am so thankful that we chose Jonathan to capture our day. It was one of the best decisions we made. I would highly recommend him. Happy planning!” – LAURA + BRENT
