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 shot 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 shooting to help make your day as fun and memorable for you as possible.

Meet the Team
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.
