Jonathan captured every second of every emotion that we experienced on the fastest day of our lives. He read the crowd and never missed a moment. Incredible doesn't begin to describe how it feels to look back on this moment and re-live these moments. I just don't know how to thank him enough for his flexibility and his insight. He is a professional and an artist.

Jonathan Fanning is an amazing photographer!!! He is very talented and truly has a gift for what he does. Our engagement pictures were absolutely gorgeous and our wedding pictures even more beautiful (we received so many compliments). Jonathan and his assistant were easy to work with and made my husband and I feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Jonathan and plan to use him for all of our photo needs.


I needed a head shot for a professional endeavor and Jonathan not only fit me quickly, but did an amazing job. He made me feel comfortable in an unfamiliar situation and I ended up with exactly what I was looking for.


Jonathan Fanning was absolutely amazing to work with. The photos turned out better than I could have possibly imagined and I 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone! He was really nice, gave great direction, and made sure the photos were exactly what I wanted :)

I recently had my daughters 1st birthday photos done by Jonathan Fanning. First off the location is wonderful, centrally located. The studio was clear and nicely decorated. Jonathan is very personable, professional and extraordinarily talented! He captured exactly what we were looking for an then some!

As a former photographer myself, I don’t play around when it comes to great photography. So when my then fiancée allowed me carte blanche to find our wedding photographer, you know I looked for the best. And wow did I find it! What initially drew me to Jonathan’s work was his ability to create an entire world. Yes, he also does great portraiture, but then I saw the environments he could create! Now THAT is a special skill set! We’ve done three sessions with Jonathan, and I aim to do more! He was able to easily tackle the challenges I threw at him: shoot four different looks in one session, in one location, shoot wedding photos and concert photography simultaneously, and wrangle the kittens that are my relatives at the day-after-brunch. I cannot recommend Jonathan enough. He is kind, funny, relaxed, and very professional. Absolute perfection!

Sandra Anderson

What a great experience! I usually prefer a trip to the dentist over getting my picture taken, but Jonathan actually made the experience enjoyable. Conversation flowed and I was able to relax and allow him to do his magic! I ended up with several business pictures and I have already received numerous compliments on them. I highly recommend Jonathan Fanning Studio & Gallery to anyone who suffers from 'photo phobia'!

Charlotte & Ryan

The moment I saw my friend Michelle’s wedding photos that Jonathan Fanning had created, I knew I wanted him to him to photograph our wedding. I had been searching through sample wedding photos of several photographers; none of the others came close to the quality of Jonathan’s work. Jonathan was so much fun to work with; reliable and professional. (We had a disaster of a wedding planner and he came through to help save the day and keep our timeline on track.) We didn’t have to wait long for our pictures: he started texting sneak peak pictures the day after the wedding. This was super exciting because the whole day had been a blur and it was great to have something to look forward to after the wedding. When our photos came out they far exceeded our expectations. The pictures are absolutely magical and I’m so thankful. Thanks to Jonathan we have a beautiful way to remember our special day.


The photos are exactly what I wanted. Jonathan was great at capturing my personality as a Mayflower Pilgrim speaker! He has the keen eye of an artist and the gentle nature of a saint! So easy to work with! I’ve already had friends ask about him for their family portraits! Thank you so much, Jonathan!!
