Itineris North America UMAX Division

I hired Jonathan to shoot a corporate meeting and party my company was planning in Tampa. He delivered above and beyond what I requested for the 10-hour day of shooting that included event candids, head shots, group shots, and party shots. The schedule I gave him had long breaks in the day where I told him it would be slow. Instead of sitting around, he worked the room in our meeting and got much more from the meeting than I had thought to ask for. He knew the hotel we were holding our meetings at and recommended locations for shots. His professionalism and skill were quickly apparent and I was able to focus on my meeting and let him capture the important moments. His attitude was positive and he was very responsive to communications. Our staff seemed very happy with the head shots we gave them from the meeting. When the meeting was over, he had shots ready for me faster than promised and had even organized them by type of picture to make it easier for me to sort. I would highly rec[...]

Jonathan is awesome! He's an extremely nice guy and incredibly accommodating! I did a boudoir photo shoot with him and not only did he make the experience comfortable, but he gave a ton of direction throughout the shoot (which was very helpful considering I'd never done anything like it before). The pictures turned out absolutely amazing and far exceeded any expectations I had for them. Jonathan made the viewing and selection process a lot of fun as well which helped narrowing down the immense selection to a select few. His pricing is affordable (even from a teacher's perspective) and he even went above and beyond to make sure that I had everything I'd desired. I can't wait to work with Jonathan in the future as he sure has a knack for capturing beauty from behind the camera & I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for any photography needs!!

Jonathan photographed a VIP event we held in Naples this March. He was amazing! Not only were our photographs beautiful works of art, but Jonathan was a dream to work with. His professionalism and ability to capture exactly what we were looking for well exceeded our expectations. I'd highly recommend him for any upcoming event!

Jonathan is absolutely incredible. He has an eye for photography like no one else I have ever met. He has done several photoshoots with my husband and I but he knocked our wedding photos out of the park! I am not at all surprised at the outcome from our wedding, but I am always amazed at the results. I would recommend Jonathan for any and all photography needs. He is THE BEST!

Marcela + Peyton

As somebody who grew up around cameras my entire life, it was incredibly important for my wedding that our photographer be the absolute best we could find. Jonathan Fanning is exactly that, ten fold! We could not be more happy and impressed with his work. He is a tremendously talented photographer. He was so good with keeping everyone moving and knew exactly how to capture the mood of the night with every photograph. If you are searching for a photographer...STOP! You have found him.

Susan + Jeff

There are NO words well enough suited to describe how I feel about Jonathan Fanning Studio & Gallery, Inc. Since the first time I hired him over 5 years ago his work has ALWAYS exceeded my expectations. He captures moments in time you don't even realize are happening and then makes them impossible to forget. Because after the "Big Day" (whatever day that is!) the only thing tangible you really have left are the portraits. He is THE Memory Maker.

DC + Jenny

Jonathan is amazing! He is a consummate professional, has an eye for detail, and is super fun to be around. Most importantly, there is something ethereal about his photography - it never ceases to take my breath away. My husband and I LOVE our engagement and weddings pictures. They are absolutely gorgeous! We recommend Jonathan Fanning Studio & Gallery without hesitation! Thanks for everything, Jonathan! You know we will be calling you to document all future milestones. :)

Ms. B

I decided to do a boudoir session because my one year anniversary was approaching and I wanted to get my boyfriend something special and incorporate our relationship in some photos. Plus, I jokingly said to Jonathan “these pictures need to seal the deal and make my boyfriend want to put a ring on my finger” LOL. I really enjoyed working with Jonathan soooo much! I searched for a few weeks for a photographer and it seemed like the ones I spoke to was they were either a fake photographer, produced low quality pictures, or they weren’t creative enough. Jonathan is the total opposite. He def. knows his stuff and it shows in his work!

Brittany + Drake

Jonathan was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was a couple hours away for him, so he arrived plenty early on the day of our wedding to plan some special pictures and take pictures of the reception hall. He was also very personable. He was friendly and made me feel comfortable having him around on our special day. Not only was he timely on our wedding day, but he also got the edited versions of the pictures back to us in a timely manner. We were very pleased with the quality of the pictures, which is why we had originally chosen him. He has an amazing eye, and we were very happy with the way he captured our special memories so beautifully.

I have hired Jonathan Fanning on multiple occasions. He did my personal head shot for my new book, the head shots of 5 other staff members, and portfolio pictures of my job-sites. He is a true professional. He is a master of lighting and picture clarity and he always produces the finished product right on schedule. He has been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone.
