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!

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'!

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!!

Jonathan Fanning is amazing! My husband and I just received our pictures back from our wedding at the Don CeSar, and every picture is perfect! Jonathan did a wonderful job capturing my husband and I, as well as all of our guests. He was extremely professional, relaxed, and fun to work with throughout our wedding day! He has a great eye for details, angles, and the perfect lighting! All of his pictures are unique and capture so much emotion. We are so glad we had Jonathan as our wedding photographer!!

I can't say enough amazing things about Jonathan, I love all my photographer friends but this particular session was unique, Jonathan had an idea and ask if I would go along with it, and the pictures have blown myself and everyone else away! My children and husband felt so comfortable the entire time that it made it easy to take family photos, he made us laugh, he some how went along with the changes due to dealing with a 5yr old who is a diva hahah! I highly recommend Jonathan! Did we mention his studio office is amazing! Very good location and gorgeous props! He worth every penny!!! Thank You Jonathan for capturing our family in such a creative beautiful way!
