have you met… {jonathan wherrett}?

You are going to love meeting today’s featured photographer, Jonathan Wherrett!  With a background in architecture, Jonathan’s photography is beautifully composed and manages to capture both the emotion of his subjects as well as the uniqueness of the location.

Based in Hobart, Tasmania, Jonathan has plenty of beautiful surroundings to work with and based on the gorgeousness that abounds on his blog it seems Tassie couples know how to put on a great event!

If you are in or near Tassie, or even if you are further afield, definitely consider Jonathan for your wedding.  Not only is his work stunning but he is also friendly, full of great tips and likes doing things that are a little different – and as you know I am all for doing things differently!

And, great news for WA couples, Jonathan will be in Perth later this month so if you are interested in an engagement or anniversary shoot or looking for a last minute wedding photographer, he would love to hear from you.  You can contact him here.

Here is a little Q&A with Jonathan and some images for you to drool over.

How did you get into photography and, in particular, wedding photography? After studying architecture at University I traveled for about 5 years.  I had some of my photography published while living in Japan and decided to follow my heart. I was drawn to weddings because I love the challenge of capturing all the emotion, moments and joy that happen on a wedding day.

When did you start your own business and what jobs did you work in prior to that?  I started my photography business in 2007. Prior to that I worked in whisky distilleries in Scotland, as a chalet host in the French Alps and as an English teacher in Japan… amongst other things.

How would you describe your style of photography?  Clean, crisp, natural and relaxed.

What methods/approach do you take when shooting a couple?  No magic formula, but on a wedding day I try to make sure the bride and groom are relaxed and having a great time.
You see a lot of weddings – do you have any general tips for brides/grooms whether to do with photography or not?  It sounds crazy, but sometimes I think couples forget to make time to just enjoy the day. Taste those canapés, drink that Champagne and enjoy time with your friends and family… soak it in and don’t stress about the time line too much, other people will be looking out for you. Choose vendors who you’re confident will take good care of you, that way you don’t need to worry about a thing come the big day.
