About me

My name is Jonny. I’m a documentary and portrait photographer shooting throughout the UK and internationally.

I photograph around 35 weddings a year and when I’m not shooting weddings I photograph portraits and commissioned work. The main constant in my work is people – they’re pretty much all I photograph – and I love capturing the way we interact on camera.

It’s a privilege to be there on one of the happiest and most exciting days of a couple’s life together, and to be able to photograph it all. Every couple has a different story to tell and I that’s what I work to see.

I work in a reportage style, which just means I document what happens without intruding or getting in your way. I try to capture all the love, tenderness and humour that makes your wedding day so memorable, by looking for real moments, and natural expressions that happen when people are unaware they are being photographed.

For most of the day you won’t even know I’m there, but I do love to make a little time to create some beautiful, natural portraits of the two of you together, just being yourselves, and without taking you away from your guests for too long.

I started taking pictures professionally a decade ago as a reporter for the BBC and The Associated Press. My photographs have since appeared in magazines, books and newspapers all over the place, including The Times and The Guardian in the UK.
