Jeannine-ZenobiI know first hand how difficult it is to pick out every detail for your wedding day, so let me help you make the decision of which photographer to use EASY – go with Jon Swift Photography. You will get the best value, most personable and professional photographers, and you will have your pictures in the blink of an eye! At the end of the (wedding) day, all that is left are the many beautiful photos to look back on. When it comes to a once in a lifetime day where you have to make sure everything gets done right the first time – the ONLY time – don’t leave anything to chance…. leave it to Jon Swift Photography. Jon Swift Photography was recommended to me by a friend, and I owe her BIG time! We began with engagement pictures a few months before the wedding. Jon picked the perfect area with many beautiful locations. He made us feel so comfortable – we were nervous at first, but before we knew it we were laughing and enjoying ourselves – and our pictures were FANTASTIC! My best friend even framed some of them and put them up for my bridal shower; everyone commented on what a great job he did. On the day of the wedding (in September 2012), Jon stayed with my bridal party and me while his assistant Brandon stayed with my (now) husband and the groomsmen. I was nervous and excited and overwhelmed, but Jon kept me calm and got me relaxed and laughing in no time. He captured some traditional poses as well as many candid/fun shots. Brandon did the same for the guys, and it was awesome to be able to see what the guys were up to while the girls were getting ready. During the ceremony, I never even saw Jon or Brandon, but they didn’t miss a thing! They blended in and didn’t get in anyone’s way, yet managed to capture every moment. When we went to take our wedding party/family pics, Jon and Brandon made sure that we got every shot we wanted, and came up with some other creative ideas as well. At the reception, they managed to get pictures of all of the guests and all of the important events (dances, cake cutting, etc) while again blending right into the crowd. Before I knew it, the most special day of my life so far was over, and boy was I (happily) amazed that within two weeks I had over 1500 pics to look at and relive every moment. I was also able to forward the link to my friends and family, and Jon even sent them all a letter with the link along with a printed picture. I could not have asked for anything else throughout the entire process. Jon helped us pick the perfect photo package, captured every moment, and truly made my day.

Jessica-JonesJon and his assistant, Brandon did a fantastic job photographing our October wedding. Jon came to my parent’s house to take pictures of myself, and my bridesmaids early in the day so he could capture all the wedding craziness that we wouldn’t want to forget. Meanwhile Brandon was with the groom and groomsmen while they were getting ready. It was wonderful to be able to see the photos of all the guys as they were getting dressed up, since I couldn’t be there in person. The shots that they took were original and unique, making them one of a kind for our wedding. They took a lot of candid shots of the whole wedding/ reception, but also posed pictures, and group photos of all the guests at each table. Which was a great idea, since the whole day/night was a blur. I would absolutely recommend Jon Swift Photography to anyone who needs professional photos done. He does an amazing job in setting up the shots, and telling you exactly what will make the shot better. He is very nice to work with, incredibly professional and stayed focused the entire time, ensuring that we would have the best pictures possible. We ended up with 2 parent albums, an album for ourselves, and a canvas with a wedding photo of our choosing to hang in our house. Not to mention the disc with about 2000 photos to remember our wedding day. All in all, you couldn’t ask for a better photographer on your special day 🙂

Meaghan-GeorgeJon did the photography for our October wedding and we are very happy with our pictures. He was very easy to work with and made things very comfortable for us. He made sure we had the traditional family poses but also encouraged us to have fun with the pictures and those are some of our favorite shots. He had the pictures online quickly for everyone to see and review and we had our albums and disks in hand in just a couple of months. I have a friend who got married months before us and still didn’t have her pictures when we had ours. When people talk about our wedding they mention Jon and how he was a fun part of the day as well. Our package included an engagement shoot with a free 8X10 and the photo, two parent albums, an album for us, and 8X10 prints for us and our parents. He even sent everyone in the wedding a free photo. We very much recommend him!
