A letter from Chantel and John

I photographed Chantel and John’s wedding (HERE) a few months back. I just saw a review on Google that Channtel and John put up. All I can say Thank you!

“Jonathan captured our wedding in April 2013. Where to begin…. My husband and I went to our friends wedding back in 2011. When we saw their wedding pictures, we fell in love with Jonathan’s work. When my husband and I got engaged October of 2011, the first thing he said to me after he proposed was “We need Jonathan!”. We started asking the venues that we had been looking at about Jonathan and they all had nothing but amazing things to say about him, and of course, that he booked up fast. Since my husband and I were paying for our wedding, we knew we had to save money fast so we could book Jonathan for our special day. The beginning of 2012 came around and we finally had enough money for our deposit for a photographer. We called Jonathan up and met with him at Kreuzberg in San Luis Obispo. The moment we met him, we loved him! He was very welcoming and made us feel super comfortable about being “put on the spot” in front of the camera. When we met for our engagement photos in April 2012, Jonathan told us to act natural, go with the flow of things, and to simply be ourselves. My Fiancé and I wanted the whole barn look country feel for our pictures and Jonathan took us to the perfect spot in SLO. We had so much fun climbing over fences (me in a short white dress) and hiking up hills to chase the sun for the perfect lighting for Jonathan’s image. By the end of our engagement shoot, we felt we had gained a friend. We could hardly wait a year for our wedding just to work with Jonathan again. When that day came in April 2013, we were more than ecstatic to see Jonathan again. He snapped pictures of everything from the time we started getting ready until the moment we left the venue that night. Talking to all of our guests the few days after the wedding up until this day (months later), people still tell us how much they loved our photographer. They loved how much fun he was to be around, that he was easily approachable and to talk to, and that he was enjoying himself and dancing with the group! After the wedding, it took Jonathan not more than a week to get all of our wedding pictures back to us! My husband and I were so impressed with his work all over again! Jonathan was able to capture so many important moments and memories. I am not sure how one person can do what he did all by himself at our wedding. He was simply amazing!!!

Through out our whole wedding planning process, Jonathan was so easily reachable threw email, phone or text and he always got right back to me. He was able to help me with questions I had that did not even have to do with photography. Jonathan was such a pleasure to work with, we would definitely recommend him to EVERYBODY that is looking for a photographer. Not only do you get to work with an amazing person, but you gain an amazing friend as well. We could not have been more blessed and happy to have Jonathan spend our special day with us and give us the best gift of all time. We get to look back year after year at our amazing wedding pictures and relive that day each and every time. Our wedding would not have been half as wonderful if it were not for you Jonathan. Thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts, for capturing our very special day! Love, John and Chantel Meyer “
