1st off I need to start by saying I haven't been married YET but will be in 7 months. I felt the need to give an early review based off my engagement photos that I just had taken 2 day ago.
Let me start off by saying how LUCKY I feel that I was able to book Jon and Brittani! Having them as my photographers was the easiest decision I made! They are the most genuine couple and can relate to anyone! I find them to be so selfless! I can't tell you the countless times in the last year of me texting, calling, emailing for advice on venues ,colors, décor....the list goes on! Within minutes I receive a reply! I am a bride on a budget but knew if I was to spend any amount of money it needed to be on the photographer. Your venue is important as well as décor, however, you will remember that for 6 hours of your life. The pictures are what capture that day and last a LIFE time! Just a few days ago we had our engagement session, as any bride I was more worried for my fiancé in hopes he would be comfortable in front of the camera. (he isn't into taking dozens of selfies :) ) As soon as Brittani and Jon saw us, they were so warm and welcoming and so excited to meet my husband to be! Their down to earth "normal" personalities made both my fiancé and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera allowing us to be ourselves. Our pictures said it ALL! I cried when looking at the pictures for the 1st time because the pictures said it all! If you are getting married and haven't found a photographer stop here! Reach out to them I promise you will not regret it! Jon and Brittani, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the AMAZING engagement pictures! They are so beautiful. You both are blessed with an incredible talent!
I am so happy with our engagement photos - THANK YOU Jonathan! The process was so easy with Jonathan, he immediately got back to me and was very flexible with when and where the engagement should take place. We did two outfit changes but could have done more if we wanted to. I was very nervous about taking the photos but Jonathan was great about repeatedly reminding me that there was no reason to be nervous and not to worry. And he was right! I am sooo happy with these over, they surpassed my expectations.
Something else I'd like to point out, I have a young teenage daughter and I wanted to include her in a few photos. Although family photos are not Jon's specialty he said it was absolutely fine and took several of us together. AGAIN, completely surpassed my expectations. There are some really special moments that Jon captured.
I'm getting so many compliments on the photos, and repeatedly being asked who was our photographer. And while it's great getting these compliments by our loved ones, I must say what I love the most is that when I see these photos I remember how I felt that day. These are memories I'll cherish for a lifetime.
When you book The Hons not only will you receive breathtaking photos, you have the pleasure of working with two genuine people who care so deeply about their work and the memories they create for every couple. Brittani and Jon put their heart and soul into each photo...and it shows!
From the moment we met, we instantly clicked. Booking The Hons was hands down THE BEST decision we made throughout the entire wedding planning process! Brittani and Jon have become more than just a wedding vendor, they are truly friends that we will cherish forever. It speaks volumes, when we received compliments throughout our day on Brittani and Jon from friends, family and even other vendors. We are forever grateful for their commitment to make our wedding day perfect.
Looking at our photos, we are taken back to the exact moments of love. The Hons captured moments that we will cherish for a lifetime. Our wedding was a magical day that we will absolutely never forget thanks to Brittani and Jon.
The Hons have a talent to tell a love story through photos and with certainty are destined to do amazing things!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! -Andrew & Kyla
If you have not booked the Hons for your wedding or engagement photos- stop everything you’re doing right now and book them. I mean it. Pause the Netflix, put down your Cup-o-Noodles, and call/email/ send smoke signals- whatever it takes. It is the best wedding present you will give yourself. Ever. Not only are they incredibly talented photographers- they are also the kindest, silliest, most amazing people ever. We found the Hons by happenstance- our original photographer dipped out less than two months before the big day. I was freaking out. I sent them my plea- they called seconds later. They worked with us through everything. I honestly can’t imagine my wedding day being as perfect as it was without them. There are not enough words in the universe to express how truly thankful we are to have found them. They are like family we never knew we had. Brittani and Jon made us feel comfortable and never stopped us from being our goofy selves. (Oh and did I mention the stellar photographs?) Other than my super awesome new husband, finding the Hons was the best blessing of my life. I mean it.
The party is over. The cake has been eaten. The honeymoon is done, and life slowly begins to creep back in. All you yearn for is to be transported back to the day you married the love of your life, when all was good and happiness was the only emotion you could feel. This something The Hons' photography did for me, with every single photo. A good photo will remind you of a moment. A great photo will conjure up an emotion. But there is something entirely different about what The Hons do. When I look back on my wedding photos I feel as if I am in that moment once again. I smell my beautiful bride's hair. I feel the sun on my neck. The butterflies in my stomach are fluttering with excitement once more. Our wedding planner introduced us to The Hons because she knew we didn't want your run of the mill wedding photos. Choosing them was the best decision we made. They are simultaneously down to earth and incredibly professional. They have such warm personalities that being photogenic isn't a worry. My wife and I felt so comfortable with them it was as simple as hanging out with life long friends. The Hons capture moments with such impeccable timing that viewing our photos left us incredulous. How did they get that? Where were they when this happened? They slide around the room quietly and with such a stealth that you hardly notice they are even there. They say that the only thing that lasts after the wedding are the photos. This is why we're so happy we chose to experience our wedding again and again with The Hons.
As a bride I experienced all kinds of difficult decisions when facing the big picture of this wedding insanity. I can tell you that THIS was THE EASIEST. I found them at random, contacted on their website and they immediately responded. With one phone conversation of plans to meet we pretty much knew with certainty that THESE are the people we want to immortalize our wedding in photos. We met them and it solidified our gut feeling. They are extremely motivated and passionate about their work. Not about getting the gig but about their end goal which is to document every feeling, emotion, candid moment, expression and encapsulate it. Logically you look for photographers with skill, and let me tell you SKILL they have but when you sit down with them you really see how they genuinely care about NOT MISSING ANYTHING. We hired them on the spot, the first photographers we met with and spoke to, no doubt in our minds. I know that sounds risky even a YEAR out of your wedding date but as I mentioned it was just an easy decision. YES THEY ARE THAT GOOD. More facts, they constantly perfect their skill. Constantly evolving. We have watched their photographs through the year develop with more precision and style. So if we thought they were good then we were even more blown away to where they were a year later. They pride themselves on their ability, their skill, their equipment, their delivery and their dependability. All of which are aces. The day of the wedding, they were there, bright and early, not like before the ceremony early, like 9am early. HOURS before the ceremony. The day before they went to the venue and covered the grounds surrounding and inside the venue. Why? To prepare themselves, to get their lighting, to time themselves, to scout the area for photo opportunities. These two are not just photographers, they give you timeless lifestyle imagery. You can trust them to bring your wedding to life again and again every time you look at your photos!!!
If I could redo everything I would pick these same photographers again. Britt & Jon made me & my fiancé feel comfortable from the very beginning. Getting married is a big deal, an important event. Next to having a baby, it's the most important day in your life. These are the people you want to capture such an event. With my experiences going to other friends & families weddings, I had a few things I became picky about. I didn't want all "poesy" shots & I didn't want the photographers to wear a see through white maxi dress (that happened at a friends wedding but I never told them this). They both dressed trendy & comfortable which left me relieved. Britt & Jon have a passion & talent for photography & it shows. Neither of them had ever been to our venue & yet they were able to see all the amazing angles that would make a great shot. They are both unique with their shots & at one point Jon saw something & told Britt that she could take the shot. They are friendly, comfortable, honest, artsy & wonderful photographers/people. I look at my pictures & I feel so blessed to have come across these two people. This day was emotional. It's a new chapter, saying goodbye to single-hood, bye to my last name, both of us missing our grandparents who have passed away, being happy to marry our best friend, happy the day was finally here.. This list goes on. They captured our happy first look, our emotional first dance with parents, candid shots with family & friends. My guests would never be in the same room probably ever again & I wanted beautiful documentation of it. They were photographers for a cousins wedding & my cousin didn't have sparklers. How they brainstormed & came up with a great "Exit" shot idea is why we wanted them. They actually care about you & your day. They took time to think of something creative & they didn't have to.
I fell in love with The Hons before they were The Hons. They photographed my friends wedding back in 2012 as their first wedding ever. They were the most beautiful pictures I had ever seen. When I got engaged in Dec 2013, I had to have them! We met with them and fell in love with them. We all connected, booked them on the spot! The Hons are so much more than wedding photographers. They are REAL & down to earth. My kind of people. They will be our photographers for life. They have taken this journey with us from engagement photos to wedding. They helped me through the whole wedding planning process with decor ideas and so much more. They helped to me bring my vision to life. They talked us into doing a 1st look. It was the BEST! Put us both at ease and it was special to be the first to see each other before. We got to share a moment and steal a few kisses. I LOVE them, TRUST them and feel so blessed to have had them as part of our wedding! I felt so comfortable that I did a boudoir shoot for my husband as a wedding gift. It was the BEST gift ever! He loved it! Totally turned him on the night before our wedding! Brittani made me feel so comfortable and sexy. Do it ladies! Wedding day was PERFECT! They showed up early and stayed late making sure to capture all our "moments". I didn't feel that we needed a shot list because I totally TRUSTED them. They knew what was important to us. The money we spent on photos is priceless. Memories fade, but photos are forever. Less than two weeks and we have all our photos! They are BEAUTIFUL and have brought me to tears! I am speechless and in awe at the way they told our love story. I literally relived my wedding day through photos all over again. Thank you so much for making this girls dream come true. You delivered far beyond my expectations. You are forever a part of the happiest day of my life! The Hons are simply the best and there are not enough thanks to express how much I love our photos and appreciate all you hard work! xo
Photography and videography were so important to us while we were planning our wedding. I was a wedding videographer for over five years and I had worked with numerous photographers where I used to live. We searched for weeks to find a local photographer that impressed us. I was tired of the stereotypical wedding pictures that looked the same on every blog. We were so pleased when we finally found The Hons. Their style is candid, but they focus on the moments that matter. We did our engagement photos with them and we felt totally comfortable in front of their cameras. We are not used to posing for photos, but they do not typically pose their subjects and this makes for a much more natural look. The love between the couple really shines because they allow you to focus on each other, rather than posing. We were more confident going into our wedding day, knowing we would be comfortable having our photos taken. Brittani and Jon were so laid back and they were still able to capture so many pictures. We started to run out of time for photos after the ceremony, but they were able to capture even more than we had anticipated. After receiving our photos, we are beyond impressed with the quality, creativity, and variety they provided. Brittani and Jon are unique in that they do not hold themselves to a particular editing or shooting style. We have a wide array of angles, compositions, color styles, etc. to choose from. They shoot simultaneously to get multiple angles, and they have true chemistry together. Every shot is unique, but they are all absolutely stunning.
Photos and video are the two things that actually last after the wedding day, and we are so happy we made the right choice! The Hons beautifully captured the most important moments during our day, and we can't wait to display them in our home. Thank you, Brittani and Jon, for being so passionate about delivering these priceless moments! We love you guys!
Everyone wants great wedding photos but I wanted EPIC photos! After browsing on Wedding Wire for hours, looking thru numerous photographer websites and nothing really catching my attention, I finally came across The Hons. I was already sold on Brittani and Jon by their work but after meeting with them I was blown away. They had such great energy, were incredibly informative, down to earth yet professional.
During our engagement shoot they made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable. They made shooting fun and everything felt very natural, not forced. I had a very specific vision for our engagement shoot and Brittani and Jon exceeded our expectations. The months leading up to our wedding Brittani was so helpful... we were still trying to find a few vendors and she referred us a florist and baker who we ended up using and were great as well.
On our wedding day my fiancé and I decided to do a first look, which was also something The Hons suggested to us which I am so happy we did. It was one of the most amazing moments. The location we originally chose happened to be incredibly windy that day and The Hons were on top of it. They quickly found a gorgeous wooded area, that couldn't have been more perfect. We were having a very dim light, candle lit ceremony which is not ideal for photography but they were super prepared and even bought special lighting to work for our ceremony. The whole evening they were so on top of everything, capturing every moment but in a non intrusive way. Our wedding day flew by and we can't thank Brittani & Jon enough for the beautiful photos we will have to look back on for the rest of our lives.
You two are amazing! The Csomboks
I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Hons Photography. They surpassed our expectations with both our engagement and wedding photos. Picking our wedding photographer was one of the most important decisions to me regarding our wedding. I searched for months trying to find the perfect photographers that fit the style I was looking for. When I found The Hons, I knew as soon as I visited their website I’d found exactly what I was looking for as evident by the quality of their photos. Then upon talking over the phone with them, I was so amazed at not only how talented they are, but how personable and friendly they were as well. I was able to talk with them as if we’d been friends for years. Same with our engagement and wedding day, we were able to have fun with them and it felt as if they were a part of the wedding party. They also are realistic with their pricing for everyday people. I feel when all is said and done; it’s the photos/videos you have to look back on to remember your special day. Then Hons do more than just “Take Photos” they tell your love story in the most beautifully artistic way to provide you with photos that you and your loved ones with treasure forever. I highly recommend them, and promise you, you will not be sorry! They are the best at what they do, and have a wonderful vision for what looks great on camera. They are there to help you in any way they can. If you want gorgeous photos that all your friends/family will talk about and envy, then look no further, they are the choice for you! Having them as your photographers will be one of the best things you do for your wedding I assure you! Thanks again Brittani and Jon!
As a little girl you always dream about having a beautiful wedding and everything running smoothly. Well my wedding was beautiful but like most didn't run smoothly. That is until Brittany and Jon took over as our wedding coordinators on top of taking the most beautiful pictures. We are so grateful that they are such caring people and help iron out the kinks in order for our wedding to run smooth. Our house is now decorated with the exact memories we had always envisioned because of their awesome abilities to capture the perfect moment!! We would absolutely recommend this photography team to do ANY wedding. We love them!!!
Jon James Photography was the best choice my groom and I made when planning our wedding. Jon was on top of everything he was friendly and professional. After receiving my wedding photos I was so amazed in what Jon and his team captured, every picture stood out looking flawless. He definitely went above and beyond in pleasing us. If you are looking for a photographer I would highly suggest contacting him and his team his prices are affordable and the pictures you will love!
Brittani and Jon were great. They made my fiancee and I really comfortable and were able to make us laugh. The engagement photos look phenomenal and they really incorporate lighting and scenery into the photos. We are excited to have them do our wedding photos. Very talented couple!!
My husband and I searched all over the web for photographer(s) in the central Florida area with the right style and quality. As soon as my husband showed me Brittani's site I immediately knew that her and Jon were the ones we needed to hire. Their wedding blog blew us away! Brittani and Jon have always been responsive and engaging and were even able to accommodate skype/facetime sessions with us since we live outside of the central Florida area. We hired them for full day coverage plus a few more hrs since our wedding lasted until midnight and they arrived on time the day of the wedding and didn't miss a moment. Despite the strict photography rules our church had, they worked around them and were still able to get the shots we wanted. After the ceremony it was such a whirlwind and I don't even remember seeing Brittani, Jon or their assistant (probably because I had a few too many drinks) but they were certainly there til the very end! Just when I thought to myself "did they get all the shots we needed? I barely saw them after the ceremony?!" all those thoughts went out the window when we saw the hundreds of photos from our wedding. A few weeks after the wedding we hired Jon and Brittani again to take our portraits in the same wedding attire so that we could have more photos of us taken around the area we got married at. Due to time constraints on the day of our wedding, we didn't get as many shots alone so we thought we'd do another session and this time with no stress, no timeline to follow and no guests to tend to. It was just my husband and I plus Brittani and Jon and we let them take the reigns and have full creativity with the 2nd shoot. We loved all of it!
If you're looking around for a photographer, seriously...look no further. This is the team that you need for your wedding. The proof is in the photos. I highly recommend this team as your wedding photographer.
When I first met The Hons, I was impressed! They are such a young cute couple with such amazing talent in their hands. Jon was very laid back, and Brittani was very outgoing like myself. She actually asked me if I was comfortable with that, because she had problems in the past with other brides about that. Let me tell you just what I told her. I LOOOOVEEE the way she acts with her clients. The girl kept it real! Some might get intimidated, but to me it was exactly what I was looking for. If you are looking for out of the ordinary wedding photography, then The Hons are perfect for you! They don't shoot the outdated style of classic wedding photography that people are tired of looking at; instead, they use their in the moment creativity and capture those unique expressions that you could only wish every other person in the room would have appreciated and paid attention to. At first I was nervous, because our wedding went by so fast, that I was afraid they couldn't capture all the images I was hoping for. I couldn't even tell they were shooting because they blended in so well with the wedding guests. When Jon sent me the link to our online gallery...OH MY GOODNESS!!! I didn't cry on my wedding day because I was trying so soooo hard to hold my tears back so I wouldn't ruin my makeup (and loose a bet our groomsmen had on me lol), but when I opened that link, tears just started flushing down my face like waterfalls! I was so happy with the end result. They captured every little detail I worked so hard for (yes I was a DIY bride). They captured every emotion that went through our face, and there were plenty. They captured amazing memories that no story could ever express. It is true when they say enjoy it cause it goes by so fast. I have nothing left from that day other than the perfect husband, a breathtakingly beautiful ring, an amazing marriage, and now pictures I could only have dreamed of receiving. I guess dreams do come true.
