Samantha & Kent

"Jonathan Fanning is a professional and true artist. There is no vendor I could recommend more when planning a wedding or special event. His experience in photography and events is priceless and the photos he provides are nothing but stunning. Jonathan is patient, thoughtful and incredibly responsive before your big day, and on your big day. Jonathan is the only photographer we will trust to capture our special moments in the future. Long story short- amazing."

Nina & Jonathan

"I think that the "fanning" in Jonathan Fanning is really a derivative of the word FANTASTIC. Jonathan was 100% fanning at my wedding, because legit, the pictures he took were just that...fantastic. I cannot recommend him enough! Him and his second shooter took the most, absolutely wonderful, and amazing photos for my special day. They were so nice and patient with my crazy family, very awesome to work with. The photos are going to be a beautiful reminder of such a special day for my husband and I. They were fun, light, airy, and artistic... and just looking at them gives me such a warm feeling, like here's a picture and a hug at the same time. OMG LOVE IT. I cannot thank you enough. Two thumbs, way up!"

Madeline & GV

"Jonathan, thank you for capturing all the beautiful moments of our wedding. You amaze me every time! GC and I are looking forward to more photo sessions with you (A.K.A. I'm looking forward to baby pictures, LOL). We love you! Best regards, Madeline and GC"

I hired Jonathan at the recommendation of a friend to capture a proposal for me. I'm very glad I did. He was instrumental in picking out a location to have a surprise proposal pulled off in public without the feel of being in public. He met with me a few days before and we went around Downtown St. Pete to a few different locations. We talked about logistics and what I wanted from the evening for my fiancée. He was able to listen to what I had in mind and help show me places where we could make it happen. During the proposal he was out of sight and located in an excellent position to capture her reaction. After the initial candid shot of the proposal he came up and congratulated us, introduced himself to my new fiancé and directed us through another little photo shoot. He made us at ease and helped guide us into positions and poses that made for some excellent pictures. We couldn't be happier with our experience. The pictures turned out great and were available to us within 48 hours.[...]


I had the best experience with Jonathan Fanning for my maternity photos last August. He is so talented and patient and walked me through the whole process like a pro. Being 8 months pregnant in the middle of Florida summer was hard enough and then having to flaunt your tummy is even harder. He gave me great confidence and my photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Not only did I feel amazing but he captured everything beautiful about the setting too! I can't wait to use Jonathan again for my daughter's photos!

My mother met Jonathan first and told me to call him. I had a list of questions for him that I had researched on what to ask your wedding photographer. He was 100% on point. Our wedding was a destination wedding and he always available to us when we called. Out of everyone I dealt with in our wedding planning Jonathan was the best at communicating- which gave us some amazing pictures. He has a very artistic eye and will get the details to your wedding. The day after our wedding we wanted some sunset beach pictures, being out of town we didn't have a car that day - he picked us up and took us to an amazing area and we got some beautiful pictures.


Jonathan was a pleasure to work with for my business portrait. He was very warm, welcoming and accommodating. For the quality of service, his prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend his services!
