Jonathan Young, the photographer that never fails to amaze with moment after moment of pure, unadulterated pretty and heartwarming, love-filled moments at every turn…
From Jonathan Young Weddings… Jonathan’s love for photography began when he was 17-years-old with a well-loved Canon SLR. A graduate of UCLA, his passion for storytelling quickly grew as assignments and documentary projects took him across the country. He photographed a vanishing way of life in the hills of Kentucky, wildfires in the mountains of California, and horse stables in New York.
Calm and collected, Jonathan lets the day unfold before him, unobtrusively documenting the day as it happens, along with time for great portraits. As an award winning photographer, Jonathan is committed to reportage-style coverage that reveals the thoughtfulness and detail that each couple puts into making their wedding a success.
A well traveled photographer, Jonathan is at home in many surroundings.
Jonathan Young Weddings is offering a $500 print credit to all couples that book in the month of January and reference this SMP welcome post.
