Mountains and Oceans

I’m extremely hard on myself. It’s nothing unique for people who create, but this is my own burden. The last year I’ve walked around with a feeling I haven’t done as well as I should, I can hear the voice in my head telling me it’s not good enough. In some ways it’s good, in other ways it takes the joy out of creating altogether. I live a life others only dream of, I travel the world and I get invited to see things I never thought possible. And as a new season starts here in Australia, I get ready for another year of doing what I love. I have found a base, a home in Byron Bay and from here I’ll travel the world again, but hopefully shoot more and more at home as well. As I sat on the beach today, I promised myself to go easier on myself as well. To create and believe it is good enough. To tell that voice in my head to go away. This is what I saw last year, this is where I went. If that’s not good enough, nothing ever will be.

New look thanks to Flothemes

I’ve used the same template for my website since I started, I’ve kept it simple and it has served me extremely well. But for a while now I’ve wanted something new, something that looks great on all devices and works no matter what, because my previous site really…didn’t.

After a lot of research, I chose to go with Flothemes, their templates do everything I need out of the box and it’s easy to install and customise. Ross and his team have been so helpful and I can’t say enough good things about them and their customer service. I’m very pleased about how it looks and I can’t wait to use every aspect of it to show off my work and communicate with people.

If you’re interested in one of their templates, click here and don’t forget to use the discount code “jonasflo” for a 15% discount off ANY template.

Candice and Joe ~ New Orleans

Walking down Bourbon Street in New Orleans during Candice and Joe’s second line will forever be one of the most amazing experiences of my photography career. I simply couldn’t stop grinning. Joe plays in a band and Candice is on TV, but this weekend was never about that. It was a gathering of close friends and family and I feel honoured they let me into their midst without hesitation. The friendliness and affection they showed everyone came from the deepest of hearts and I hope I managed to capture that. I worked together with Cassie Sullivan and Tim Twinem and as always when we work together we have an amazing time. All the weddings I’ve done with Tim and his team at Velare have ended up some of my favourites ever. Make sure you check out Tim’s video down the bottom of this post.

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer

I’ve traveled the world for the last 8 years. And don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, but I miss having a place to call home. And one place in Australia have always held my heart – Byron Bay. So when we sat down and talked it didn’t take long to decide that moving to this beautiful beach town was the only solution.

And here we are.

The other morning I took a swim on Tallow Beach before my wedding in the Byron Bay Hinterland and I felt it in my heart – I’ve come home.

This is where I belong.

And I can’t wait to shoot more here, so if you’re getting married this or next year, why not consider Byron Bay? The vendors here are amazing, it truly feels like a family coming together every Saturday. Last week I met a marriage celebrant I haven’t spoken to for years. She knew I had just arrived so she grabbed my hand, smiled and said, “welcome home”.

That’s exactly how it feels.
