WHAT TO EXPECT
The saying is true that your wedding day will flash bye in the blink of an eye, so take the time to enjoy every moment. I believe your wedding day is about you. My desire for my couples is to have the true experience of their wedding day; the rush you feel as you walk down the aisle, the tears of joy, the feelings of love, the laughs, and the memories made with the people who matter most in your life as you say “I do.” My goal for my clients is to relish in these moments and focus on the connection they have with each other so they can relax and experience their wedding day wholeheartedly and the love they share. You can trust in me as your photographer to put my all into capturing all of who you are as a couple, all of those memories made, and all of the details in between. You will never have to worry about feeling pressured into poses that don’t feel natural. Your wedding is made beautiful and unique by you, and my goal is to capture who my couples are in the most organic and natural way possible. Don’t worry though, if it’s needed I’ll give some light direction in order to ensure that my couples feel comfortable throughout the day to provide a look that’s always true to who they are.
On your wedding day I will be professionally prepared, enthusiastic, and focused on you so you don’t have to worry about any moment being missed. I’ll be there to help with the boutonnieres, keeping an eye on the timeline, organizing family pictures, and helping you and your bridal party feel relaxed throughout the day by lending a hand in anyway I can. Most importantly, I’ll be there to capture all of the moments and details that are important to you which will become your first memories as a married couple.

SENTIMENTAL & TRUE
THE BEST MOMENTS IN LIFE
If you feel a connection to my work and are interested in having me photograph your story, let’s get in touch to discuss your wedding, portraits, or celebration!
“From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say thank you for being a part of our special day and capturing out favourite moments! It has been a pleasure to work with you over the last few months and we are so happy with all our photos. Your genuine character and professionalism have not gone unseen. Thank you!”
- Kessia & Dave
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Jesse Jonas Photography is based in Burlington, Ontario. We photograph weddings & portraits all over Southern Ontario and beyond. The primary areas we cover are Hamilton, Toronto, Niagara and Kitchener/Waterloo.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE
We focus on capturing all the beauty we can, in an authentic way. Our wedding coverage is mostly documentary-style with an editorial flair, and our direction for portraits is easy and natural to bring out the ‘real’ you in your photographs.
WE FEEL AWKWARD IN PICTURES, WILL YOU HELP?
Of course! We have an incredibly easy approach to our portraits that involves light direction, NOT awkward posing. The result is natural, timeless moments between you and your partner. You’ll feel relaxed and comfortable during our session, and it will show in the final photographs.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR PACKAGES?
We don’t share complete pricing information on our website because we prefer to discuss each client’s needs personally. If you’d like to know more, please head over to our contact page!
CAN WE GET PROFESSIONAL PRINTS FROM YOU?
Yes, we offer a wide range of album and print options. Our wedding collections also include a full print release for you, so you’re welcome to make your own prints too.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO YOU DELIVER
We always prefer quality over quantity. Every wedding is unique and my main goal is to tell the story of your day. That said, we usually deliver 60-80 photographs per hour of coverage, which adds up to a LOT of great photographs!
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP GEAR? INSURANCE?
Yes absolutely. We know how important a wedding day is and would never risk an equipment failure without having backups on hand.
THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT, WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
To my contact page! I’d love to hear from you about your wedding, and chat further over a coffee in person or Skype. Just fill out the contact form as best you can and I’ll be in touch!
