Hi! I'm Jon-Mark, and I'm the owner of Jon-Mark Photography, a wedding portrait company in Victoria, British Columbia.
I love moments of laughter and joy between my couples and the people that matter most to them. When you're working with me I want you to know that you're in good hands with someone who has captured more than 250 weddings in 8 different countries but that I still keep things light and fun. I make sure to give you all the direction and encouragement you need while we're shooting, no stiff posed photos or awkward silences wondering if you're doing the right thing!
My style is more contemporary, and while I always include the classic portraits and 'smile for grandma' photos as well, the vast majority of my images are fun, lighthearted and filled with movement and laughter. I love what I call 'little people big world' images that showcase the landscape we are in and fuse my love of landscape photography and the outdoors, as well as more artistic and abstract images and lighting, but I also make sure to get in tight for those playful smiles and intimate moments.
I believe that it's just as important to love being around your photographer as it is to love the images they create. When you're genuinely relaxed and having fun it shows in your photos, and that's how I want you to remember your wedding. I take the time to get to know my couples and make sure we are a great fit together so that by the end of your wedding, you feel like I was another friend that you brought along for the party. I would love the chance to get to know you and your partner and share a few things I've learned over the past decade of photography to help make your day as fun and memorable for you as possible.

The best photographer
No words can say how happy we are
Being the lovely and professional person that he is, he made us feel calm during the rainstorm on our wedding day (we got married last June in Oliver, BC- a desert, where rain rarely makes an appearance, except for the storm on our wedding day). He was such a trooper working through it with us, scouting alternative locations for our photos without sacrificing any aspects of our visions. We took his advice in getting clear umbrellas and took some photos in the rain and we glad we did! Throughout the reception, he would quickly grab us for some photos here and there during downtime, but he never took us away form the party or our guests.
Every photo is amazing and captured in such a way that immediately brings us back to our special day. I still get goosebumps everytime I see our wedding pictures, as it made me feel the amount of love and happiness that everyone felt at the wedding all over again. Our experience with Jon-Mark was above and beyond what we expected and we would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants a super talented, professional, kind, genuine and fun photographer to capture their memories on their special day. Thanks so much Jon-Mark!!!
We highly recommend you choose him to capture your special moments!
Jon-Mark is an amazing photographer
He was so easy to work with, and his approach to our wedding day was so fluid and fun.
From our fist meeting, to engagement shoot, to our wedding day, we felt like old friends with him the whole time. Being comfortable in front of the camera is important to us and Jon-Mark was a natural putting us at ease.
Not only is Jon-Mark a great photographer, he is a great person.
Thank you so much for capturing our day.
Jon-Mark came along with us to our destination wedding in Cuba and he instantly fit right in with our group. It was honestly as if we had known each other for years. Along with being friendly and easy-going, we found him to be very professional and informative. We trusted him completely with the outcome of our images and we couldn't be any happier. The whole process from the first email to delivering the usb was smooth, comfortable and most importantly a lot of fun.
Jon-Mark is an absolute gem and we couldn't be happier with our decision. We have our wedding images huge on canvases all over our house. We would and will recommend Jon-Mark Photography time and time again.

Hi I'm Jon-Mark, and yes I have 2 first names! I grew up here in beautiful Victoria, BC as the middle of 3 boys. My wife Mandy is a high school music teacher and we live here with our cat Pickles. I'm into hiking and camping, board games, indoor soccer, podcasts and audiobooks, technology and computer games, and doing all those things with my wonderful friends and family. There are few things I love more than good conversation around a campfire with a bottle of wine.
When it comes to my work, having a genuine connection with my couples is so important to me. Authentic moments of laughter and joy are always a part of my favourite images, and part of the way those happen is by having a blast together. Happy couples are my number one priority, both on the wedding day and after they get their images.
