Bio

Jonas left a highly awarded career as a writer in advertising to become a wedding photographer. More than one eyebrow was raised, but he had an idea that stories through wedding photography could be told differently. Should be told differently.

Today he’s one of the most sought after destination wedding photographers around, shooting weddings all around the world. He has shot weddings in almost all parts of the world, using his unique storytelling through simple – yet beautiful – imagery.

Jonas work has been published all around the world, ranging from wedding photography magazines to American Vogue. He is the current QLD AIPP Professional Photographer of the Year, QLD AIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year and one of his wedding albums was this year named the Australian Wedding Album of the Year.

In 2013, he was named “Best Wedding Photographer in the World” at the¬†inaugural [F] Awards during WPPI in Las Vegas.

He’s also been named one of the Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the World by¬†prestigious American Photo Magazine.

When he’s not shooting weddings, he teaches wedding photography workshops or spends time with his friends.

His home is Melbourne, Australia, but he’s on the road around the world for half of the year, so never assume he won’t be able to shoot your wedding, no matter where it is.

He also finds it absolutely ludicrous writing about himself in third person.

    Laura Gray - Jonas,

    Let me start off by saying that before looking at your work I’ve never felt myself be so mesmerised by something that I can feel it warm up every inch of my body. Your talent is something that I admire and envy all at once. I’m an 18 year old amateur photographer that absolutely adores taking images and find myself obsessing over it. I left school in year 11, some shook their heads and told me I was crazy but I knew that there was something more i needed to be doing, something that was waiting for me and I’ve come to realise that photography is my passion and my destiny. I’ve emailed and called so many photographers looking for some experience/tips/advice and they’ve all turned me away. I’m simply curious if you offer one on one training or if you even have time in your busy schedule to help a someone with an aching for knowledge within the photography field. I understand if you’re busy etc, but this is something I’m devoting my time and energy to every single day and I would absolutely take in every single bit of advice you’d give me.

    Kindest regards,
    Laura Gray

    Madison - I stumbled upon your website while I was wasting time at work, and I just want to say that your work is amazing and incredibly moving. I own a bridesmaid dress boutique, and I see hundreds of wedding photos – none have ever touched me like the pictures in your portfolio.

    Lovisa Tedestedt - Hi Jonas,
    A neighbor from Gotland, Stella, told me about you this summer and I want to make sure I have the right Jonas? We recently build a summer home near you on Gotland and as we work in the same field I wanted to reach out and say hello! Hopefully we have an oppt to meet next summer while both on the island. All the best, Lovisa
