Amazing photographer, amazing experience, amazing photos!
I hired Jon to photograph my sister's wedding as a wedding a present. He was absolutely wonderful! Here's the rundown:
1. Booking -
Jon had an extensive portfolio via Facebook, so selecting him based on style and passed work was easy. After contacting him he was incredibly responsive, friendly, and easy to do business with. I signed a contract within hours and paid a deposit via Venmo. Easy peasy.
A few months out before the wedding, Jon worked closely with my sister to understand exactly what she wanted (videos, photography, pre-wedding, ceremony-only, etc.). He was flexible and understanding, and was quite knowledgeable.
3. Wedding Day
Jon arrived early to scope out the wedding venue. He also took some really great pictures of the venue before photographing the bride, groom, and wedding party getting ready. He was incredibly friendly, fun, and really put my sister at ease. During the wedding, he took hundreds of really awesome pics. I particularly loved that he had the perfect balance between candid shots and posed shots. Seriously....awesome awesome photographer.
4. Wedding day +1 - My sister texted (absolutely giddy) with a handful of preview photos from Jon. I cannot stress this enough....they were truly AMAZING. Jon has a very artistic eye and some great tricks up his sleeve to really make magic happen.
In short, I would work with Jon again a million times over!Sent on 10/28/2020

The Best Wedding Photographer!
My husband and I could not ask for a better, more creative, and more professional photographer to capture every special moment of our wedding! Jonathan was extremely kind, upbeat and positive, professional, and a truly exceptional photographer. He led us to different locations throughout our venue that brought out his creativity. The resulting photos were amazing!! Beyond our expectations. Besides his obvious talent, he's a really nice, down-to-earth person. We highly recommend Jonathan!Sent on 01/26/2020

Jonathan Hare is truly amazing
Jonathan is so amazing at what he does! You can see in any picture his creativity. He has a true talent and you feel his excitement for his work. Not only do we love his work, but he was so flexible, kind and professional throughout this whole experience. Also, his turn around time for pictures is more than we could ask for! We could have not have asked for a better photographer to capture so many amazing and important moments. We can also say we have walked away with a new friend. Thank you for everything Jonathan!Sent on 03/08/2021
Jonathan is hands down one of the best photographers in the Tampa Bay Area, if not the world! He is always so wonderful to work with, and his pictures are incredible. His easy going, happy personality only adds to the joy of the day. He truly loves his job so it is always wonderful working with him. The best part, he makes it look effortless! You barely know he's there during the ceremony, etc. and he produces these amazing photos. Also love that he plays a slideshow on his laptop during the reception of pictures he has taken earlier in the day. Guests love it! I will always recommend Jonathan Hare Photography!
Jonathan is such a joy to work with. He has a very easy going personality and the shots that he takes are absolutely stunning and very editorial. Another great feature was that he sets his laptop up for the guests to see the pictures taken from the day. We loved seeing all the great pictures and so did the guests. We can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures he took from the wedding from last weekend and working with him the future.
I love working events with Jonathan. He's friendly, professional, prepared and passionate about his work. And his photography is amazing!
