You will be so happy you chose Jonathan Ivy Photgraphy
Jonathan is awesome!!! I spent a lot of time researching great photographers in the San Antonio area. Jonathan's photography style is very artistic, precise and unique to this area. The photographs are true to your memories. He is great with crisp and colorful shots. He is also so good at looking at his environment and finding great photo opportunities that captivate the environment and your love for each other. His photographs tell a story of your day which is so great to look back on and re-live. Samantha was great in coordinating everything they needed for the big day! Communication was quick, timely and organized. I would highly recommend Jonathan Ivy Photography!!! :)Sent on 10/14/2019

Best of the best
Wow where do I start? Jonathan and Sam are the best decision I have made when it came to my engagement photos and capturing my wedding. Throughout every step of the way Sam was an email away. She was informative, detailed and never got annoyed with all my questions or anxious bride moments. Jonathan did a wonderful job of capturing every single moment! He was open to capture any type of photo I wanted, from the cheesy pinterest poses to my bridal party jokingly giving the finger as an "lol" moment. He even captured my dogs in the perfect light! He makes you laugh, advises you to take a shot and has fun capturing you in the most natural setting. I really appreciate that because I tend to get awkward if a camera is put to my face. Jonathan even calmed me down when my makeup artist was over an hour late. He assured me it's okay, take a deep breath and that we will get all the photos I ever wanted and he was absolutely right. I received all my final photos and my album super quick (along with a flash drive with high resolution photos). To give you an idea of how amazing they really are, when my wedding photo made it to the San Antonio Wedding Magazine Issue, they offered to send me a copy since I lived in Houston and couldn't get access to it. I cannot thank them enough. I am obsessed with my album and still look through it like it's my first time seeing it. They are worth every penny and I look forward to emailing them one day when I need a maternity photoshoot (not sure if they even do that, but maybe if I beg them enough). Thank you Jonathan and Sam, you guy are wonderful and thank you for making my special day unforgettable.Sent on 07/03/2019
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:You guys!!!! Thank you! We still talk about how much fun your wedding was. Everything was so beautiful too. Yall did such a wonderful job!

Stress free & top quality
The best decision I could have made for my wedding by far. They are not only amazing at what they do but they also are very passionate about it and it shows in the photos. They have done my engagement photos, and they will be doing my bridal photos and wedding photos. They also helped me make huge decisions on the wedding like recommending when the ceremony should take place to make sure all photos were done in proper lighting. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have amazing photos and be stress-free about photography. I also work overnight so have had to communicate at odd hours or have my mom speak on my behalf at other times and have always gotten a very quick reply from Samantha.Sent on 09/24/2019
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:Yall are awesome! Yall had the best engagements, bridals, and wedding we have ever done at Don Strange. And EVERYONE at your wedding had the time of their lives. Yall did such a great job! thank you for letting us be a part of it.

Jonathan Ivy Photography is the BEST of the best!!
We booked Jonathan Ivy Photography for both our engagement pictures and our wedding photos- and we are SO happy we did. First off, Jonathan and his wife, Samantha (Sam), are super friendly and easy to work with. Upon first reaching out to them (after reading many awesome reviews online) they immediately responded and recommended meeting up for drinks/dinner to get to know each other. These two are the best of the best. They brought samples of their work and different high quality book options they offer- and we immediately knew we had to have the works. Jonathan and Sam are both very approachable and professional. Their photos speak for themselves. Jonathan has an eye for amazing photo opportunities and helps make you feel comfortable from the start. He excels at capturing the natural/fun moments in perfect, glowy lighting. Sam goes above and beyond to make each photo release feel special. They create a unique blog post, share links on facebook, feature you on their instagram page, and maybe even add in a special delivery of chocolate, champagne, and flutes to announce your wedding photos are officially ready (spoke straight to my heart!). Sam thinks of all of the details! At the last minute, we included in our wedding package a sign-in book, and Sam worked with us to make sure it was ready in time and even included pens that would work best with the pages. Book Jonathan Ivy Photography before they are booked up for the wedding season! You can trust them to capture all of the highlights and memories of your special day. We hope to find excuses to hire them again in the future. =)Sent on 10/21/2019
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! You guys are wonderful! We had such a great time getting to know yall. Thank you for trusting us with such a special time in your lives.

Hire them now!
Beyond Jonathan's obvious talent in photography, he and his team are also a joy to be around. This means more than I realized when planning. We chose him based on his amazing gallery and style - his photos are everything we'd hoped for and more. But what we didn't consider was the way he interacted with our guests to get those photos. He had a way of keeping the attention of those he needed to shoot and kindly preventing distractions from those that didn't need to be in particular photos. We had a two day wedding event and everyone loved interacting with Samuel and Jonathan! They're FUN, easy going, and ultra professional - exactly the kind of vibes a stressed bride needs.Sent on 05/09/2019
These guys are a true gem in San Antonio - we're so happy we chose them and you should too!
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:Thank you guys! And congratulations on the new baby. We are just so excited for yall and all the amazing things happening in your lives right now!

I would recommend him in a heartbeat and hire him all over again.Sent on 06/13/2020

I could not be happier with the way our engagement photos turned out!! I originally found Jonathan Ivy Photography while searching for locations to do engagement photos in Houston, and then when looking back, saw that all of the photos / locations were from the same photographer. From the moment I contacted Jonathan and Samantha, everything was SO easy. We wanted to capture shots all over Houston, and they were able to accomoodate EVERY SINGLE location which we wanted to shoot at, propose a mapped out route with exact times they would recommend spending at each location, etc. and it all turned out to be Perfect! I was worried it was going to feel awkward, but Jonathan makes you feel so comfortable and when you are "stuck" on what to do with your hands, etc. he knows exactly the way to suggest a "pose" without it looking too forced or pose-y. After our shoot day, they were so fast to deliver the photos, make the edits, and mail us our USB of pictures. It was so fun hanging out with Jonathan on our shoot day and getting to know Jonathan and Samantha through our email and in person interactions, and if we weren't getting married in Pennsylvania I'd totally have booked them for our wedding!! I would not hesitate to recommend these guys to any one in the area. Thank you!!Sent on 12/20/2017
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your sweet words. Reading this made us so happy. Jonathan had a wonderful time on your engagements and loved the amazing variety yall were able to capture. We are excited for your wedding out east and wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

We are so thankful for Jonathan Ivy Photography. They did a great job capturing our daughter’s personality in her senior photos. They made the process easy and fun. Jonathan did a great job of conversing and making my daughter feel relaxed and less awkward in front of a camera. The selection of photos were amazing. I highly recommend this studio!Sent on 06/11/2018

Jonathan Ivy Photography is fantastic. I couldn't be happier! Jonathan and his wife Sam are a doubling duo who went above and beyond for me. Not only did they capture that special candid moment for me and my future wife but they also did a great job working around the weather and my schedule. My overall experience was very pleasant and stress free. Jonathan is a true artist and Sam was excellent in helping orchestrate times and dates, together they reflect the absolute best. If your looking for a photographer look no further, I highly recommend giving Jonathan Ivy Photography a try you won't be disappointed!! TWO THUMBS UP!!Sent on 02/16/2018

Professional, caring, fun and memorable!
Very professional photographer. My fiancé and I had a car accident a week before our wedding day, which caused us to reschedule the wedding and loose money with various vendors. But NOT this vendor! He was very understanding and caring. Samantha and Jonathan kept in touch with us on our recovery and most of all kept us in their prayers! They knew this day meant a lot to us and when it was time for the photo shoot (9 months later), Jonathan was extremely professional, made all of our pictures so fun and memorable. He had great options for photo shoot places and great poses! I highly recommend using this vendor.Sent on 10/17/2018

If I could give them 100 stars they deserve them! The quality of the pictures is artistic and captured our daughter's wedding in a way we will treasure forever. It was a perfect experience, Jonathan is the best, from the bridals to the wedding pictures they captured every moment in a unique way, Samantha took care and guided us through the order process and the photographs and albums they did are of top quality. I know they are our first choice from now on for any photographs not only the weddings. And an added bonus is that Jonathan was so much fun to work with, our entire family and guests loved working with him and his staff so much they want him as the official family photographer. We absolutely without any reservation highly recommend them for your wedding or any other event.Sent on 12/08/2017
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:Oh my goodness, reading this made our day. You all had the most gorgeous wedding and we are so thankful you trusted us to capture it all. We have had a wonderful time getting to know you all and are so excited for your family. Thank you!!!
Adriana · Married on 07/01/2017
Quick email responses, BEAUTIFUL pictures, Jonathan was so fun the day of our wedding and we barely noticed him taking pictures when we were getting ready and in nice moments like the father daughter first look. They made us a beautiful album and got our pictures to us very quickly. He also made it so easy for us to get big group pictures that we thought would take forever but he was quick positioning everyone and getting all of the pictures we wanted done. Would highly recommend their services!!Sent on 12/10/2017
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:THANK YOU!!!! Your wedding was so much fun! Not only was it beautiful, everyone was having so much fun which makes taking photos SO MUCH FUN!!! We wish the two of you a lifetime of happiness!!!

I cannot even begin to describe how fantastic Jonathan and Samantha are. She is by her phone and email at all times to answer any questions you may have, which is hard to find in a photographer.Sent on 06/03/2017
On the day of my wedding, we apparently were on a time crunch and were running slightly behind schedule. I had no clue, why? Because Jonathan took control of the situation and made me feel so relaxed as if nothing was wrong, even though he knew we were running behind. I had a day of coordinator, but she was no where to be found at my hotel while getting ready. Jonathan took matters into his own hands, and I can't thank him enough!!! It would NOT have been the same without him there. He is not only the most talented photographer, but the most professional as well. His work will capture every moment of your wedding, and you won't even know he's there! The photos are unbelievable. I am beyond happy with all of my engagement and wedding photos. My husband loved him as well. I will definitely be using him for all of my future photos!
If you're searching for a great photographer for your wedding, look no further. He is the best!!!
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:You two are simply wonderful, thank you so much for this amazing review! You knocked it out of the park with the design and decor which makes our job so much more fun! Every where we turned was something beautiful and it shows in the photos. We are so happy for yall and wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

Jonathan is funny and a true professional. He really tries to make sure you're at ease when you take your photos and let your personality shine, because let's face it- how often do you take these type of photos... the fiancee was nervous that he'd have to awkwardly pose or do something strange but we ended up having a ton of fun and the photos came out wonderfully! He told us that it would take two weeks due to it being peak season (two weeks is great speed for editing a ton of photos, IMO), and though we told him we were in no hurry (wedding is more than a year a way) he remained true to his word. We had a whirlwind of a photo session and I bet almost every location that we picked had something that was unexpected/obstacles (one side of the Water Wall was off, crazy Houston traffic lead us to lose a lot of daylight, our rooftop nighttime skyline view at a Downtown garage was closed to visitors, and more), but Jonathan worked with us to ensure a great session, and he even found us an additional location to shoot to take place of the one location we couldn't get to because he wanted us to be happy with our photos. He went above and beyond for us! I definitely recommend him if you're looking for a photographer to shoot your engagement photos and though I haven't gotten married yet the wedding photos I have seen him display on his blog are absolutely gorgeous. Samantha is also very helpful and professional and was able to answer all of our questions prior to the shoot.Sent on 10/08/2015
Jonathan Ivy Photography's reply:Thank you so much for sharing this. Jonathan really does do a great job of thinking on his feet and when his couples are like yall and ready to dive in, art and creativity win! We are so happy you love your photos because we love them too! - Samantha

Jonathan is the person to take them....I had been looking online around a year before my wedding and i would always look at his work.
Because of timing I couldn't use him for the ceremony and man do i regret it.
Look at his portfolio and you will fall in love.Him and Sam do an amazing job from the beginning to the end.

Jonathan and Samantha are incredibly helpful, sweet, talented, and professional! Jonathan is an amazing photographer and Samantha runs everything like a well-oiled machine! I absolutely loooove my wedding and engagement photos and have recommended Jonathan Ivy to several people already. The most impressive thing was that he could manage and tolerate my husband and his drunk groomsmen while shooting the wedding haha!Sent on 05/10/2016
