So who even am I?
Well Hello! So before we get this going I want you to know a little about me. My name is Jonathan! I am a 24 year old professional wedding + elopement photographer and videographer. I am based out of St. Petersburg Florida but ya boy loves to travel.
Often on a rainy day you can find me re-watching Lost for the 50th time with a large Chipotle bowl in my lap. I just recently moved into my first home and finally have an office space all to myself, I know I know I’m a full fledge adult now (gross). On my spare time I love exercising and adventuring outside. I am a HUGE Tampa Bay sports fan, sometimes maybe too much.
How I See Things
Capturing genuine, raw candid moments and hearing people’s stories is just my favorite thing, and I would LOVE to do that for you, too.
My main goal as a wedding creative is to serve my couples. On your wedding day there are only a few people that are with you from start to finish. I’m talking before, during, AND after. SO ya better like me because - well once ya got me, ya stuck with me.
Through that entire wedding process I will be there to help you with literally anything you need. Constructing your timeline for the big day, ask me about wedding colors, tell me everything because I WANT to know all about you and what YOU want for your big day.
Heck, maybe your hubby needs help tying his bowtie, don’t worry i’ll make sure he is looking spiffy for you!
In an industry full of photographers who don’t care about their clients, who over pose and suck the beauty out of images, it’s time you invest in someone who does care.
My clients are the stars of the show, and light and mood are the backup dancers. My images are infused with a warm, golden glow. I lean into natural, timeless tones meant to look as gorgeously of-the-moment today as they will 50 years from now when their wedding album is passed among loved ones around the living room.
3 Fun Facts
I love travel and street photography. Nothing is more exciting than seeing new places and documenting them from behind the camera. My love for travel photography was born when I first went to visit my family in Greece a few summers ago! Ever since then everywhere I go, so does my camera!
I record and publish an educational podcast every week all about photography and videography. Teaching others has slowly become something I love to do more and more. I have found that I just loved talking about Photography. So if you want to hear more of my voice check out the Lens Culture Photography Podcast.
I volunteer at an Orthodox Youth Summer Camp every year. As a kid I grew up going to St. Stephens summer camp and giving back to the program is something that I have found great joy in.

Q & A
What is your style of photography?
I believe in candid emotion filled moments that at one glance bring you back to that exact moment. I showcase these moments with a beautiful warm golden glow. I lean into natural, timeless tones meant to look as gorgeous of-the-moment today as they will 50 years from now when their wedding album is passed among loved ones around the living room.
Where can I access your full pricing list?
Each wedding is unique and different in it’s own way! I can truly understand wanting to find out pricing information without having to ask. Truly I can. My detailed rates and collections aren’t listed for the public for a few reasons. First rates and collections vary by location. Some weddings outside of the Tampa Bay Area require travel, which would not be included in my local rates. If you like to obtain more detailed pricing information than be sure to reach out! My local wedding photography rate start at $890 and my wedding films start at $1190.
Can I book you for photography and videography?
Of course you can! I have a few colleagues that I work with on a regular basis that I hire to work along side of me. I usually perform the photography and my videographer captures video. For post processing I edit both the film and the wedding gallery.
Are you willing to travel for our wedding?
You bet your sweet ass! Traveling is something I love to do so be sure to reach out and lets talk about your wedding, I definitely don’t mind hopping on a plane!
Can I order prints or albums directly from you?
Of course you can! Once you receive the online wedding gallery you can begin purchasing prints, by this time I should have already showed you example prints! My preferred printing lab is linked directly to the gallery and they ship next day!
How does the album design process work?
Okay so albums are my favorite, mainly because I am a HUGE fan of printing! First you will go into your wedding gallery and create a favorites list with all the images you want in your album. Second, I will go back in a re-edit the images for print. Third, I will design the album and send you a proof to approve. Then place the order and just like that, 3-5 days later you will have a complete wedding album!
When can we expect our images or film?
Online galleries are expected to be delivered no later than 60 days and wedding films no later 90 days. Prints and albums are delivered roughly 3-10 days upon placement of your order.
How many pictures will we receive?
Great question! How many photographs you get depends on a few factors, how many extra things there are in the day (First look, letter reading, etc.) and how long we spend for each session. On average for an 8 hour wedding with a second shooter you can expect 600-700 images and 500-600 as a solo shooter.
How will I receive my images or film?
So don’t call me weird but I’m old fashion! I have always been a hands on person so I like to provide all my couples with a wooden box containing a walnut USB with all your wedding files (Images and/or film) as well with 10 5x7 prints of my favorite images. I also send an online wedding gallery for easy access to ordering prints and creating favorites list for future album purchases.
Can you hold a date for me?
Sorry but no. To be fair to all my couples I can’t “hold” a date without a retainer and a signed contract. I find that a large portion of my inquires come 6-13 months ahead of time.
