My name is Jonas. I tell wedding stories. I know, it all sounds a little hoity toity, but it's what I do.
This website is my online home. I'm based in Melbourne, Australia, but I shoot both nationally and around the world. Don't feel afraid to contact me because your wedding isn't grand enough or you're afraid I won't do it for whatever reason. I don't choose weddings based on how cool they are, I love shooting weddings everywhere, small and large, local and international.
Just send me an email, you never know.
Have a look around, if you like what you see, please contact me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
It’s slowing down. I have one wedding to go this year and I can feel my brain freeing up capacity to look at the bigger picture again. In the last weeks I’ve found myself thinking about the year ahead and slowly I can see where I want to go. A game plan is taking shape and I feel the energy flowing through my body. It may sound silly to you, but October and November have been so busy, I’ve hardly had any time to think about what I’m doing, and that’s why it feels like a breath of fresh air when you start seeing things for what they are. I know I sound like a broken record, but I love what I do. Time to step it up.
The last week was the end of long and hard year of work for me. I still have a few weddings left to shoot before New Years, but something happened last week and I see things clearer now.
See, I taught a workshop at my studio with my friend Sean Flanigan. We talked, we shot, we shared, we partied, we hugged, we did a great deal together with all the attendees. And as always when it comes to teaching, I walked away feeling I have learned a great deal about where *I* am and where I’m going. And I know I want to do this again.
It was absolutely exhausting, but now, four days later, I feel pumped again. Excited about where I am, the people I get to meet and work with and the year I have ahead of me.
A few words of thanks.
I could not have done this without Jacqui, who ran the show perfectly behind the scenes together with friends and family, allowing me to be my usual scatterbrained self. Sean for knocking it out of the ballpark over and over again. Dan and Samm, my dear friends, who added some amazing perspective as our guest speakers. Our four models who rocked the crap out of a swamp.
And of course the attendees.
People come to workshops to learn, to be fed knowledge. The thing is that they already have it inside them. All Sean and I did was lead the horse to water.
I hope you all walked away at least a little bit inspired, knowing you have the skills to take this thing you do to new heights.
I love you all.
Can we please do it again?
