Happens to be

Hello, my name is Jon and I’m a photographer. Let’s back up for a moment… I was born and raised, along with my sister, by a single mother in South Alabama and spent many of my formative years isolated in the woods adjacent to the property we owned half-an-hour out of town. I’m not sure I would trade it in for a more urban upbringing but I do often wonder what would have been…

My father shared life lessons through osmosis and left me with a few neck ties, power tools, a guitar, road rage, and a deep love for cooking. He passed in 2008 and because of my mother’s sacrifice, I was able to

I’ve worked as a film scanner at Indie Film Lab for six years.

A moment can be anticipated, approached and captured undisturbed with a passion and fragility equal to that of those residing within.

I capture life as it unfolds, in images that remain both honest and impartial, in order to extract the most factual record of a given moment in time.

A moment itself is more significant than the people inhabiting it and is to be anticipated and approached with a passion and fragility equal to that of those residing within. I aim to capture life, as it unfolds, in images that remain both honest and impartial, in order to extract the most factual record of a given moment in time.

Try not think of me as your photographer, but as your guest; who happens to be a photographer.

“The moment I opened the email, I saw it. Beauty. Sincerity. Affection. Jonathon brilliantly captured our son’s wedding day with the most delicate approach to humanity in the midst of a life celebration. Seeing the young and old alike being reminded of true love is priceless, and he caught this on film. I will not say just a thank you, because that seems too common to say. But instead will say, welcome to the Marsh family. You caught some of our most intimate thoughts, glances, laughter and choices on that night and we will forever have a tangible memory of it from this day forward! You, my sir, do something that is absolutely outstanding. You capture life.”

“Looking back through the photos of mine and Josh’s wedding weekend, I am in awe of how Jonathon captured the ethereal vibe and feeling of every single moment. It’s hard to explain, but among the stunning wedding shots there are photos of the small moments that most people wouldn’t consider photo worthy. I can honestly say, the photos he got of my mom making me a turkey sandwich while I’m getting my makeup done are equally as special as those taken during our ceremony. His ability to capture life on film allows you to relive the beautiful moments. He’s also super fun to be around and will instantly become one of your very favorite people.”
