San Luis Obispo Wedding Photography by Jonathan Roberts| Bluephoto bio picture
  • Hi, I'm Jonathan Roberts and I started Bluephoto 8 years ago. I've shot over 300 weddings and have loved every minute of it *(almost every minute....the naked reception guy freaked me out...and there was the crazy dog that bit Michael, the groom...)!

    And a little about me:

    I am living my dream. Not too many people can say that. I have the cutest wife ever. Michelle never stops smiling and she is simply a joy to wake up to each day. I am incredibly thankful for our happy little boy who spends way more time giggling than crying, a wife who is the love of my life and a job I look forward to each day. Marriage for me has been a dream come true and I am thrilled to be a part of each couple's wedding day as they make the commitment to be together for the rest of their lives.

    And to be a little less sappy - I also love wine, cooking, cyclingnews.com, figuring out near impossible lighting setups, single speed mountain bikes, chips and salsa, brie with crackers and caramelized onions, the perfect margarita with just a touch of salt, and knowing when I click the shutter that I captured a perfect moment.

    Check out the posts below to get a feel of what your wedding pictures could look like. Most of these have been shot in and around San Luis Obispo wedding venues, and some farther away. I have made many friends along the way and I thank every couple from the bottom of my heart for making me a big part of their most special day. I have tried to capture the best, the most beautiful, the most touching (sometimes even the most zany) side of every couple through my photography. Take a stroll through my pages and think of me when planning your wedding in San Luis Obispo or the rest of Central California.

    Shoot me an email or give me a call we'll figure out a time to grab a cup of coffee.

Mia and David – Wedding

gorgeous sunset couple Ojai wedding David Bowick and maria perry ranch
Maria and David’s wedding in Ojai, California last week was full of close friends, horse ranches, hot weather, Hollywood folks, a gorgeous sunset, lots of hay bails, live music and more love than I’ve seen gathered together in a very long time! I wish you could have been there; I wish you could have smelled the fresh cut lavender scent and overheard friends connecting with old friends and seen the selflessness that happens behind the scenes by family and loved ones when everyone gathers together at a home where a lifetime of precious memories have taken place to celebrate a very special moment. There is history surrounding the Perry’s home. I saw their past in pictures propped up on furniture in their living room and memorabilia scattered throughout the house. Mia wanted her wedding at home. She wanted to be surrounded by her friends, family and everyone that has been a part of her life up until this point – because this to her is where she comes from; this is her home.

PJ started 1st grade last week. The memories we are making today, yesterday and the ones we will make tomorrow hold more value than so many of my prior experiences. Michelle, PJ and I are carving out a life full of love, happiness, craziness, sadness, new experiences, respect and love. This is real life. These are our roots, grit, nuts’n’bolts that all three of us will remember. I applaud the Perry’s for creating a life….a home full of experiences and love that Maria and David wanted as a part of their wedding day.

“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”
– Mother Teresa

Hold on tight to those you love….I’m not letting go of mine.

Matt Wiens - Jonathan, awesome. Love those bridal party photos.

Christine and Greg – Wedding

My friends Christine and Greg held their wedding at the Dallidet Adobe here in San Luis Obipo. The day started off in Montana de Oro with a trail run for all of their friends and family. Montana de Oro is often gloomy and dark in the mornings (and late evenings) but, we were met with gorgeous blue skies and warm weather (check out the video below for some really pretty aerial photography of the coastline). After the run, everyone made their way back to San Luis Obispo where Christine and Greg made things official-before the dance floor was filled and the celebration really began!

holland ranch san luis obispo maternityLast night Quincy, Travis and I headed out to Holland Ranch to take a few pictures before their little one makes his/her way into the world. The night ended with a gorgeous sunset and no wind which made for some fun aerial photography.
Congratulations you two! I can’t wait to meet the little one!

Dominika and Chris – Wedding

Valhalla Tahoe Wedding Photo and Video

Dominika and Chris were married a few weeks ago at the Valhalla in Tahoe. The Valhalla wedding venue is a gorgeous setting right on the shores of Lake Tahoe. This historic venue was a wonderful place for Dominika, Chris and their closest friends to celebrate their wedding day. The day started off crystal clear with blue skies and warm temperatures but, as the hours went by, the clouds moved in over the water creating a surreal feel amongst the trees and along the rippling shores. Dominika, Chris and I ended the day with a walk through the forest and along the beach. With the darkened skies, all of the earlier beach goers had moved inside. It was a peaceful time that allowed us an opportunity to reflect on all the wonderful things that had earlier in the day; making that little photography session one I’ll never forget.
