{james & rebecca} ~ wedding ~ melbourne

October 20, 2009

Rebecca and James got married in the tallest residential building in the Southern hemisphere, the 300m Eureka Tower in Melbourne. Little did they know their photographer has a pretty extreme fear of heights. I really don’t know how I made it through the night without throwing up all over the guests, but somehow I kept it together.  When in Melbourne, you have to shoot in some of the hidden laneways you find all around town. So we did. Twas a good day.



Very lovely! Great work!! By the way, I found this premium quality High Peak Matrix Marquees for hire and can withstand extreme weather conditions. Service is really cool. Worth checking!

I love the shots! I hope I get to shoot a wedding there one day!! Great job!!

Jonas, I really like these. Especially the understated portraits in the laneways. Simply beautiful.

Seriously Jonas I thought you had peaked and then you put these shots up. You make even the simplest of objects worthy of a photo.

Man, loving your work Jonas…
Just love your style… you gots some classy shots there.

Keep up the excellent work!


“Little did they know their photographer has a pretty extreme fear of heights.”

I share your pain! That shot of the older lady at the window – I’d be freaking.

I wasn’t truly aware of my own fear of height until I decide to propose to my wife to be on top of the Rockefeller Centre in New York – I was on my hands and knees as soon as I got out of the lift – she didn’t know a thing about it, but after I popped the question she did query whether I was meant to drop down on one knee, not crawl around on two LOL

Loving your work Jonas!

Very retro and modern – you have a certain style away from ‘the norm’ – it’s refreshing :)

The skyline/indoor shot just blew my mind…… You did a great job… and best of all.. they look extremely happy!

Beautiful work, Jonas! This is my all time favorite wedding of yours :)

haha… my husband made me take pics of him standing on the glass floor of the CN tower in toronto… me standing, over him lying down… but after the first few seconds i was okay! glad you coped alright with this one :) i think i’m in love with the shot of the back of the bride’s dress in the narrow laneway (is that a laneway?) – fantastic! your brides have the most amazing dresses…

what a BEAUTIFUL dress, gosh i absolutely love it

Seriously amazing beyond words. Wow…..

As alwas amasing pics! You have such a gift!
Looove the dress!

jonas, we sit here smiling and happy and stunned because seriously, you are so talented. your work amazes us and makes us happy to be doing what we do.
ps. it was nice hearing from you today! :)

Absolutely stunning! I love the use of the alley way!

Love this frickin’ wedding!!! Your shots are f&*@ing amazing. AMAZING.

beautiful work Sir

I love these. I can’t pick a favorite. Your composition is amazing! Your work is inspiring Jonas!

These are superb, Jonas. What a location. I’m getting dizzy.

I love your work sooooo much!

FANtastic. I love your work-you’re so inspiring and fresh and new. Love it.

oh my. those bride and groom portraits are INSANE! the subject lighting, the contrasts, dang. blew my mind

Love the image between the two brick walls!

Awesome coverage JP! i was thinking of you up there on the day, shaking away, weak at the knees! Just kidding :-) Great work as always!

Gorgeous work as always Jonas. I love your take on this wedding. Simply stunning and chic :)

Amazing Jonas. You are such an inspiration!

dear jonas, i like when you take pictures.

Ohh man I feel for you… what a horrible scenario, I’m always worried about getting sick or something similar on a job. Nevertheless, you rocked it as usual. You and t/s = awesomes.

wow, beautiful! i love the portraits in the doorways and all.

These are stunning, especially the couples portraits!

I know how you feel about shooting a wedding despite fear – I have a phobia of wasps (and I don’t mean I’m scared, it’s a full-on phobia) and the first wedding I shot was in a marquee – 200 guests, 25 waiting staff, a band, 3 photographers and about 250 wasps! I was so scared, but by imagining that my camera was a shield to protect me, I got through it. Without screaming or freezing on the spot even once. And I even got a few good shots ;-)

well you certainly never disappoint do you!

Nice! My favourite pic is the one where the couple are dancing. And the bride’s dress is so beautiful.

I have a really bad fear of heights as well! Your a brave man. I honestly could not have done it. I freak out at about 20 feet off the ground! loving the one with bride in the alley with her hands on the walls.

Nailed it mate!! Great job

wow, what a wiew! And your pictures are great as always!

Oh, I just saw that she was looking out from the window, not standing on the roof. Big differ – the pic is great and we are tiny anyways *LOL*

Jonas, they are gorgeous! I really like the pics with the graffiti, really nice contrast to the fancy clothes.

Another favorite is the one with the women looking out from the roof. We are so tiny in the world :)

somehow you make portraits mug-shot style look great (squared shoulders, arms at the side)

Okay-even my knees were shaking! Awesome pics!

I’m way into it. well done!

I think this wedding is magical and I love all of it. For someone who hates heights you made the most of them.

These are wicked!! Love this post!!

killer work Jonas! dirty alleys are the best

sweet man … nice post!
