I’m Jonathan Ong. When people ask me why I do what I do, the simplest answer is I love weddings. Funnily enough, more than photography.
By nature, I am quiet and shy, but I believe these traits make me better at what I do. Trained as a Communication Designer, I found my ideals in photographs. To me, they are the best expressions of people: emotions, thoughts and tales – sealed in time, made tangible and unforgettable.
So for the past 9 years, I’ve used photography to tell stories. I believe a good story is honest, with a touch of whimsy. I approach each wedding as an observer, subtly capturing your story while respecting the integrity of each fleeting moment. My hope is that my images make you feel, inspire you to remember and encourage you to imagine.
I feel so blessed that couples are willing to share their story with me, and am thankful to do what I love. I promised myself to never take this joy and privilege for granted, and so, taking on just 24 weddings a year, I hold each wedding dear to my heart.
