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.

Christine and Bernard – Wedding

el capitan canyon wedding photographer best ever

Wedding season is here! The first few months of the year are always a bit slower than usual, but now that April is just around the corner, my Saturdays are going to be filled with weekly celebrations! I can’t wait!

Check out Christine and Bernard’s wedding down at El Capitan Canyon last weekend. The weather was simply perfect with sunny blue skies and a coastal breeze that made its way through the Canyon all day long.

Beth and Joe – Wedding

The night before I arrived on scene, there was a bit of a roast. A dirt throwing, mud slinging, love and laughter – roast. From what I hear Beth and Joe took some hilarious hits from the ones they love in a secluded barn (an hour plus from the nearest tiny airport) with good food, plenty of wine amongst their cherished family and close friends. The jabs were thrown by those that care about them most; and those same folks were surrounded by hundreds more the next day out at Santa Margarita Ranch as Beth and Joe said, “I do.”

Santa Margarita Ranch sits about 10 miles from my house in San Luis Obispo and offers up a canvas of quintesential central coast barn radness. I LOVE that Beth and Joe were attracted to such a magical place. For most of the year the hills are golden brown but, with the recent rain, new green grasses and wild flowers are shooting up all over.

Beth and Joe have been together for 10 years. Michelle and I are close to that but, we have yet to hit that 10 year milestone. The length of their engagement wasn’t missed as an opportunity for loving mockery throughout their wedding weekend. However, it struct me that they must have already figured out a lot of things that only come up after being with the same person for a significant period of time. Michelle and I are continually trying to figure things out (i.e. negotiate) in order to keep our marriage strong.

There was a great reason to celebrate last Saturday. Beth and Joe have and are continuing to make it work. In a society where the divorce rate is (divorce is actually down since the 1960s in America by the way – NOT up as many assume) more than I would like, Beth and Joe have stayed together. They have made a commitment that I’m sure is sometimes hard – and they have shown their determination to mend what needs to be mended, to forgive when warranted and to always love because that is the foundation from where their resolve derives. And most importantly, they laugh. They laugh more than you. And maybe more than me (maybe). They laugh and cause laughter and bring joy to those that surround them. And that is why 300 people took planes, trains, autos and horseback(?) to celebrate these two as they made things official…because they already had and they don’t plan to change a thing.
