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.

The best photographer
Can't say enough about Jon-Mark - He is friendly, accommodating, responsive and professional. He managed to capture our emotions on our wedding day so beautifully. We had a blast working with him and we were confidant that we are in good hands! Our wedding guests were constantly giving us great feedback about how amazing and friendly he is.Sent on 05/08/2020

No words can say how happy we are
Jon-Mark is such a fun-loving person and he made photos - even the family ones go by so fast. We had so much fun and everyone in our wedding party loved working with him and his assistant. It was relaxed and beautiful locations for our photos and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Hands down the best person to work with for your wedding!Sent on 18/10/2018
Jon-Mark Photography's reply:Thank you Chantell! Everyone in your party was so fun and easy to work with and you and James really set the tone for that. I'm so glad we connected and were able to hang out before the wedding too!

Jon-Mark was phenomenal. He was incredibly fun to work with, professional and approachable, and his shots are fantastic. He really captured the spirit of our day and our relationship. We couldn't be happier with our photos!Sent on 29/09/2017
Jon-Mark Photography's reply:Thank you Rachel! The fun to work with goes both ways, you and Kyle made my job easy and loads of fun. And I'll probably share the story of the grumpy corner store owner for years to come because I'm still baffled by it ha!

Where do I begin? Having Jon-Mark as our wedding photographer was the best decision we made during our wedding planning. The whole process, from the initial stage of planning our engagement shoot, to brainstorming the style and setting was seamless. Jon-Mark is such a genuine, warm, attentive person who can instantly make you feel at ease and comfortable. We had so much fun during our engagement session with him! We laughed so much together that our faces hurt and everything felt so natural. His ability to capture precious moments is extraordinary and it shows in all of the photos!Sent on 04/03/2016
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!!!

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.
