    Captures memories and emotions

    Jonathan is a one of a kind photographer. He does not just take
    photographs he captures memories and emotions. Everyone commented
    on how friendly and good natured he was. It was like we had known him
    for years. I felt completely at ease during the day, Jonathan is stealthy -
    like a ninja- you never notice him taking photos which is great as that’s
    when the magic happens. I would not hestitate to recommend him to
    friends or family.

    Fantastic addition

    Jonathan was a fantastic addition to our special day and worth every
    penny. Everyone commented on how well he integrated into the party and
    put everyone at ease; it felt like we were spending the day with a good
    friend. I feel that he went above and beyond our expectations, no demand
    was too small or too great. The finished results only prove we made the
    right choice and would happily recommend his services to everyone.
    Need to get our renewal sorted so we can book Jonathan again!

    Most amazing photographer

    The most amazing photographer we could have ever wished for. From the
    start he was open to any questions and ideas. On the day he fitted straight
    in and there was no point that there felt like their was a "stranger" in our
    very small house as we were all getting ready. As a couple we are not very
    comfortable in front of the camera but Jonathan made us laugh all day
    getting some great shots. When we revived our photos we both cried with
    how beautiful they were.

    Extremely professional and friendly

    We booked J S Coates after finding his amazing, natural work on the
    internet. We messaged him to see his availability for our date, from that
    moment onwards Jonathon could not have been more helpful! Jonathon
    was keen to speak to us in person which made us feel so at ease, this
    meant that the morning of my wedding, it didn't feel like we had a
    stranger with us! He was extremely professional and listened to all of our
    ideas! On the day,it honestly felt like we had another friend at our
    wedding!

    Love our photos so much

    We love our photos so much and were so over the moon when we saw
    them. Jonathan did such a great job, it was more like having a friend at
    the wedding, he made us all feel so comfortable. Our guests loved him
    and his approach to taking photos really brought out the best in everyone.
    He was professional, fun and has such a great eye for a good shot, he
    captured some great moments. The slideshow he sent to us made
    everyone cry and the music he chose for it was just perfect. We couldn’t
    be happier.

    Captured the day perfectly

    Jonathan arrived when hair and make up arrived and did not leave until
    around 11pm. He captured the day perfectly. He fitted in amazingly with
    the day and ensured everyone felt relaxed and comfortable throughout. He
    captured the natural feel of the day amazingly and we are so grateful. He
    even went the extra mile taking something we had forgotten to the venue.
    When his photos arrived they were classy, funny, elegant. He was
    completely professional and caught the day exactly as we wanted.

    Service was beyond perfect

    From the moment booked, service was beyond perfect, made to feel like
    the only couple getting married. On the day, so supportive, nothing was
    too much trouble. All the guests were raving about him and some of the
    positions he got into to get the most incredible shots were above and
    beyond. From start to finish he was faultless, we are so pleased that he
    was our photographer and that we have the most amazing images of our
    day to last forever

    Amazing, friendly, professional

    Jonathan is amazing. Friendly professional... running around the venue,
    on the floor in fields until he gets the perfect photo. His humour and kind
    nature made us feel relaxed like we were being photographed by a friend
    who knows us not a photographer we have chosen online. He's
    enthusiastic and has the ability to make people smile and feel relaxed, and
    is fantastic at blending into the background to get the perfect photos . He
    communication and professional manner has been perfect throughout!

    Amazing photographer

    Johnathan was an amazing photographer leading up to and on the day of
    the wedding. He went above and beyond to help us by meeting up with us
    at the venue, discussing ideas of shoots, helping us understand his
    photographic style as well as giving us ideas of certain shots. On the day
    of the wedding he was helping the day flow whilst also capturing those
    special moments, he even went to great lengths to capture amazing shots
    like rolling in a field of sheep poo.

    Put us at ease

    On the big day, he was a real joy to be around as his sense of humour and
    bubbliness really puts you at ease. He worked tirelessly snapping away,
    lying on floors, getting in to rugby line outs and the like just to get the
    perfect shot. He captured such beautiful shots of our day including little
    touches, such as the homemade centrepieces. He also got really excited
    about more unusual shots (we had photos taken in a forest) and it was so
    lovely to see him enjoying his job. The editing was brill.

    Highly Recommend

    We can highly recommend Jonathan's services without hesitation! He
    brought tonnes of creativity capturing all of the essential moments and
    beyond. His passion for photography shines through all the way from shot
    taking all the way through to post processing avoiding lazy cliches. He
    worked tirelessly from morning to night, engaging guests exceptionally
    well. Having our photos taken was always a pleasure, never a chore!

    Friendly and professional

    Jonathan was friendly, professional and made us feel at ease. He was
    fantastic through out the entire process and the photos he produced are
    both moving and beautiful. He really captured what we wanted, took all
    of our ideas on board and gave us exactly what we wanted. He blended in
    seamlessly on the day and took warm and natural pictures that really
    captured the emotion and energy of the day. He also paid attention to the
    little details that made the day special. He really went above and beyond

    Relaxed and stunning photos

    From the moment we first found Jonathan and looked at his work, we
    crossed our fingers and our toes that he was available! Fortunately he was
    and after a bit of a chat, we booked him straight away. We had an hour
    long convo on Skype to discuss our requirements but mainly just had a
    laugh and talked about all sorts. The day was amazing, so fun and relaxed
    and the photos are stunning! Always supportive and available if we had
    any Q's. Fabulous gent and would not hesitate to recommend him!

    Most amazing photographer

    Jonathan was the most amazing photographer I've ever worked with (and
    I work in corporate events!) his sense of humour instantly puts you at
    ease, and it felt like we had known him years! We couldn't meet face to
    face beforehand but a simple FaceTime call was a great solution! The
    photos were incredible, more than we could have imagined, and his
    slideshow (with his own music interpretation of us) was out of this world!
    Thank you for capturing our day as we remember it!

    So much fun!

    When we said goodbye to Jonathan at the reception late at night, he headed for the door after an incredibly long, hot day. A large merry group headed
    for the dance floor and Jonathan ran back into it, camera in hand smiling.
    Before the photos came back people were saying how much fun he was to
    have there.He over delivered on the quality of photos and his ability to
    truly capture the moments on the day we're just outstanding.It was like
    having another friend at the wedding, who discretely took pic
