{wedding} john & kimberley, lawrence, nsw.

October 13, 2010

“They burn the cane fields at night”, she said and lowered her head.

“I’m sure it doesn’t compare to all the wonderful places you’ve been to this year, but we like it”, she continued.

Kimberley was afraid country New South Wales wouldn’t measure up. What could Lawrence, NSW have to offer compared to Bali, Spain, Colorado, New York and all the other places I’ve been lucky to visit this year?

That was her concern.

Well, as it turned out, Lawrence had a whole heck of a lot to offer.

It’s never about the places.

Always about the people.


This wedding is also featured on Polka Dot Bride today. Head over there for more details.


The last 2 pics rock.. well they all do but really love the last 2

Du är så jäkla bra! Jag får gåshud!
The one with the sunset is just amazing! I love looking at all your albums! It’s hard to believe that you’ve ever worked with anything else! I can’t imagine any of your customers not being satisfied with the pictures… All the albums are AMAZING!

Stunning pictures. There are no words to express how they are beatyful

who needs Spain or Bali when our Aus is SO beautiful. Captured with your usual magnificence Mr Peterson. Love it.

your photos are reason enough to get married once a year.

Incredible!!! amazing pics!! the 301 my fav!!!

The sunset picture is AMAZING and the flower girl are the cutest!

Wow, incredible wedding!!! I’m not sure where to even comment specifically. It’s all nice.

Absolutely love the hero shot in the sugarcane field, from the light, to the framing, and the daisies in the foreground. Just spectacular.

such a well thought out beautiful wedding…

Consistently the best grooms’ prep photos in the biz. Awesome all around.

This is great Jonas, pure Australiana, and captured amazingly as usual.

Hi! I am a big fan of your sit and always check out your work! I have to let you know that I thought about one of your post at a wedding this weekend where I had to bring out all the stops to get that epic shot!:) Just thought I let you know that even your words and most defiantly your work inspire photographers across the world! Cheers and happy shooting!

What a beautiful wedding!I love the pics of the bridal party!

well, sheesh. I guess I’ll be returning to this wedding again and again to see what top shelf coverage is all about. my cap’s doffed, JP.

They should change Laurence’s name to Awesometown. You’re SO right – it’s always about the people – and you always remind us of that so beautifully Jonas… love this one.

What does Lawrence have? One of the most magical moments of light, composition, people and photographer (among other things). That’s what.

i wish i could better express in words how amazing i think you and your photography are…

VISUAL KICKBOXING direct to heart!!!!!!!!!!

completely gorgeous jonas, one of my favs!

The shot with the blue car, bride and groom in the cane field is just stunning. One of my favourite shots of yours ever I think. Love it.

Beautiful as always. I love the pulled back shots from the reception. It looks like a party in a picture frame. :)

You’re story telling is amazing these days Jonas. Your images have always been great.. but you can really take me there now. That’s something on an entirely different level to me.

No one sets the scene quite like you do.
