Right

August 22, 2010

So, I’ve noticed something.

I fly in from Australia, check in to my hotel and then a couple of hours later I meet up with the couple I’ve talked to online for months.

And they thank me.

Me.

– Thank you for taking the time to shoot our wedding.

– Thank you for being here.

– We feel so honoured.

And I think.

Thank me?

For the chance to go to cities I’ve never been to.

And hang out with people who like what I do?

You are flying me across the world and you are saying what?

Thank.

Me?

Right.

Fab photos and lovely to hear real passion, definitely not just a job!

Great colours. This wedding IS MAGICAL. Thank you so much for sharing. LOVE IT.

Its well deserved Jonas. Putting beautiful photos out in the world for people to enjoy is not easy. I’m grateful too :)

What lens was this shot with Jonas? the dof is brilliant!

Great shot, very original composition. The great thing about the job is the lifestyle and when you are in a good place, the images reflect that.

I know what you mean, it’s a totally unreal and upsidedown-feeling! But great ;-)

You are one true inspiration, Jonas!!!

So beautifully written! Photography has to be the most gratifying profession, I love it.
I’m so glad your couples appreciate the incredible effort you put into every shoot.

I love this shot. Its like shadow hat net.

You’re a celebrity – as simple as that :)

“The mutual thank you” now that’s where it’s at. So awesome

I feel EXACTLY the same way every time I get that response from folks. It blows my mind.

God I love that image.

And I had that exact same experience last week in Spain. It was pretty insane and I kept pinching myself!

It is a weird dynamic, isn’t it? All I know, is that your pictures rock socks… And if I was 50% of one of your booking couples, I would be pretty thankful too.

oh man…this is such a refreshing blog post! there’s so much ego in this wedding biz, but it’s nice to read about a level head who just so happens to take some of the best pics around! always a pleasure seeing an entry from you in my reader! :)

Your very humble! I’m glad that your fast rise to awesome wedding photographer hasn’t screwed with your head and super inflated your ego! :)

Ah but your work is worth giving thanks for Jonas. It means you are on the right path.
