{wedding} sara and dylan ~ nevada

In March this year I was part of a production called the FILM Show, a show about photography that has been available online for viewing for a while. As a part of the show, we shot a wedding. Being a wedding photographer, it was very important for me that we shoot a real wedding, with real people and not an editorial shoot with models. In the end and through a lot of serendipity, it turned out that the hosts of the show would shoot the wedding of Sara and Dylan. I’ve know both Sara and Dylan over the internet for a while, so getting to shoot their wedding was a huge honor. We were five people hosting the FILM Show, me, Ryan Muirhead, Tanja Lippert, Jan Scholz and Tia Reagan, so even getting my head around shooting with three other photographers bothered me. Add a a film crew of about 20 people to that and you can imagine how difficult I thought it would be to shoot the way I normally do.

But for some reason it worked.

Tanja did her thing, I did my thing and so did Jan and Ryan. Tia styled Sara to perfection and I hope the images speak for themselves. These are some of my images from the day, I’m sure Tanja will share hers too. If you’re interested in me shooting you on film, let me know, i’m happy to shoot more film whenever I get a chance.

You can also watch the actual episode of the FILM Show here to give you a behind the scenes look of the day. And if you’re a photographer interested in my approach to wedding photography, both the art side and the business side, you can buy three separate workshop videos where I talk about my approach to what I do. There’s also a wedding Q&A I did together with Tanja. You may have to sign up to Framed to get to the workshops, but signing up is free.

But back to Sara and Dylan.

I shot this whole wedding on film and there was something about this that needed to be shot on film. Sara’s ethereal beauty needed the glow you get from film. And knowing Dylan brings it out of her, I just feel blessed I was there to document their day.

There was something so special about it, and I was wondering if the photos you and Tanja made would be able to capture the indescribable spirit of the day. I’ll say with confidence that you did. I’m so impressed with the results! This is why you do what you do — the honesty and precision of your work are so needed in a world full of photos that possess none.

October 10, 2013 - 4:59 am

Ian - Terrific photos man. But if I can be honest it doesn’t seem to be real like your usual work. I mean when I come and view your posts your version of the weeding day is real in the sense that you see the day evolving naturally, as wedding days should be. For me personally i didn’t get that from this wedding. I wonder if the bride and groom feel the same way? Having all that production crew seemed to have taken the edge of letting the day evolve. To many cooks you know what I mean.

October 10, 2013 - 6:58 am

Anni - Jonas, these are stunning. You can tell how much heart and soul you put into each photo, and into the story as a whole.

October 10, 2013 - 6:02 pm

Kim - Absolutely beautiful. Well done Jonas!

October 11, 2013 - 1:27 am

Eleonora - I had following the show and I was totally enchanted by your way of working. To be honest, I am enchanted since I discovered your photographs, so I watched the show with great enthusiasm.
There is poetry in your way of telling through photography, so intimate, so intense, so delicate.
Breathtaking works. Your work is a great inspiration for me.

The FILM Show

In March this year I was part of a…very different experience, hosting the FILM Show, which will “air” in a couple of months. I spent 10 days or so with a bunch of amazing photographers in a house in Vegas. We shot some stuff on film, but more than anything we shared a lot of… baggage. It was actually quite amazing and I can’t WAIT for the thing to air. Here’s an image I shot when we got a chance to shoot the real wedding of Sara Byrne and Dylan Howell. I haven’t been more excited about a set of wedding images in years. And I get excited every week.

If you’re interested in the FILM show before this year’s season airs, I recommend you watch last year’s season. Signing up is free.

Speaking

The year is coming to an end. I still have four weddings left to shoot and two workshops, one in Melbourne next week and one in Sydney the week after. I’m shooting weddings in both those cities before I head to New Zealand and then finish up in California December 29. I haven’t counted how many weddings I’ve shot, but I’ve had another amazing year. When I’m finished properly I will sit down and look at all the weddings I’ve shot and put a post together, mainly for myself to remember them all.

I put on some good music, lean back and go through them and it all comes back to me.

But we’re not there yet, and that’s not why I’m writing now.

2013 is not here yet, but I already know what I’m doing with my next six months. It’s both the beauty and the curse of doing what I do. My life is mapped out, at least ticket-wise. Of course nothing will turn out exactly the way I foresee it, but hey…

I’m talking a lot more next year.

This year I did workshops in Australia, NYC and Cape Town, next year I’m doing more of them and also speaking at a bunch of conferences and conventions and I thought I’d run through them quickly.

I kick off the year with guest speaking – at my own house – at this little beauty of a workshop January 8-9. I don’t need to tell you how talented I think the Parsons are, do I?

After shooting on Taprobane Island in Sri Lanka late January, I head straight to the Dominican Republic to speak at the What If Conference there February 4-7. I meant to attend last year’s conference myself, so being asked to speak there is an honour.

Ten days after that I head to Europe and this is when the real mayhem starts.

My goal is to do two workshops in London somewhere between the 17-22 February. I’m working on that content as we speak. After that I head to Malaga to speak at BodaF 25-28 February. After Spain I fly straight to Las Vegas where I’ll be co-hosting the next season of The Film Show, something I’m ridiculously excited about. And since I’m already in Vegas, why not attend WPPI while I’m there? (No, I’m not speaking)

After that I get to go home.

For a little bit.

In April, I’m speaking at the Canada Photo Convention in Vancouver (April 23-24). I’m also thinking about doing a workshop or two in North America at that time.

In June, I head over to Europe again and my plan is to do a few more workshops there in the summer months. I haven’t decided on cities yet, so if you’re interested, hit me up.

Well, that’s my start to 2013. I’m also shooting a few weddings around the place, so I’ll be pretty busy.

If I’m in your part of the world, maybe I’ll see you around?

I’m already excited about the year to come.

jennifer armstrong - i am so looking forward to the convention in vancouver. And would LOVE to attend a full-on workshop here on bc’s west coast around that time if you could swing it. I’d be happy to gather folks locally for one if that helps. You’d have no trouble filling it, i’m sure. Enjoy the slide out of 2012 & the drift into the new year. Heaps of happiness to you & yours.

Oscar Rosander - Hej Jonas,

Har följt dina bloggar sedan urminnes tider höll jag på att säga. Men sedan din tid i Melbs i alla fall.
Driver en anläggning i natursköna Östergötland med plats för workshops. Om det är av intresse, hör av dig.

Vi kanske kan få upp Fredrik Jönsson från Malmö att komma på pilsner…

Hälsar
Oscar
