Jon is "fuego"! Best wedding photographer in SLO County!
My wife and I almost hired a different photographer before discovering Jon. We're so glad we found him! Honestly, we can't imagine not hiring him because the photos he took perfectly captured our wedding day.
So many photographers these days like the whimsical, faded-out photo style. This isn't us. We were looking for a photographer that doesn't over-edit, but embraces the colors in the photos and has more of a photojournalist's style. This is Jon to a T. He has an incredible eye and is so, so talented.
What we didn't know when we hired Jon was how great of a person he is. Jon has a way of putting you at ease in front of the camera with a great sense of humor and a liberal use of the word "fuego"! Neither my wife or I have ever taken portraits like you do for engagement photos or your wedding. This was new to us, and Jon found a way to make us look good! He worked well in tandem with our videographer and has great relationships with wedding venue staffs and coordinators, too.
He's also very quick with his editing. We had a "small" album of around 100 photos sent to us the morning after our wedding. We got the email from Jon while we were eating breakfast. This was so great to be able to share some photos with friends and family, and on social media, right away.
I could go on and on about how highly I recommend Jon. He is organized and was helpful every step of the way. He was flexible and able to make changes on the fly. I'm certain there's not a better wedding photographer to work with in SLO County.
Best advice I can give: Hire Jon!Sent on 10/31/2019

Don't look any place else, HIRE JON!
There are so many [great] photographers to consider in SLO County, however we wanted photos that would be timeless and not highly edited like the sepia tones and whimsical look that’s become popular. Jon’s photos were exactly what we were looking for, and we hired Jon to take our engagement photos (Spring 2018) and wedding photos (Fall 2019). BEST DECISION EVER!
For our engagement shoot, Jon was extremely flexible and shot photos at two locations - the winery we got engaged at in SLO, and another location he suggested in Los Osos. We were so blown away (literally, it was the windiest afternoon ever!) by the photos Jon took during our engagement shoot, that we knew we absolutely made the right decision to hire him for our wedding as well!
Jon perfectly captured our wedding day. It’s worth noting that our wedding ceremony and reception were in different locations, creating a little bit of a logistical challenge, however, Jon was extremely communicative and helpful in creating a photography timeline to ensure the day would go smoothly despite the multiple location changes. He didn’t miss a beat! All of the photos are amazing, so amazing that we’re even having a difficult time choosing which ones to print! Our family and friends we have shared photos with can’t get over how beautiful our photos are.
I honestly could go on and on on why to hire Jon, but the best bonus is how awesome of a human being Jon is. His upbeat, fun, and easy going personality makes him so fun to be around therefore making it comfortable and fun being in front of the camera. Hire Jon, you absolutely won’t regret it!Sent on 11/03/2019

Let's get weird
It was great working with Jon. He captured the moments that me and wife will forever cherish. He's easy and fun to work with. He'll take suggestions or just let him do what he does best or as he would often phrase, "let's get even weirder". Taking the sunset photos was a nice break and get away from the crowd and I can say that, that moment was probably one of the highlights of our wedding.Sent on 09/05/2019
