Excited to have you here
I’m Jonathan Gonzalez a professional wedding photographer and educator based in Washington D.C. sharing tips, advice, and offering one-on-one mentoring for aspiring photographers and creatives. I have built a photography business that gives my life flexibility and freedom.
Now, I see myself in so many new photographers as they navigate through the questions and confusion that come with mastering this beautiful art. My passion is to educate and empower fellow entrepreneurs run businesses that serve their lives well.
How did you get started in photographing weddings?
My journey towards professional wedding photography was a long road. I had always loved photography, but I never actually envisioned myself photographing weddings. It wasn’t until my own wedding that I realized wedding photography is my true passion.
Ever since then, I’ve been working towards building my wedding photography business. Why do I love it? Because to be part of such an important day is an incredible honor and I love using my artistic eye to create images that speak to a couple’s relationship and show the beauty of their commitment.
Do you struggle finding your ideal clients in your local area? Or ways to increase bookings? We are excited to share helpful tips and marketing strategies on how to grow a profitable photography business.
We’ll spend 90 minutes unpacking your photography business together via Skype and make a plan for key ways to see immediate growth & improvement. Topics include editing, posing, composition, branding, pricing, marketing, portfolio/website critique, workflow, etc. No topic is off limits!
We’ll meet over lunch for a deeper conversation about your business and brand perception plus any other topics you want to talk through further. You will also choose to either have your headshots taken by me or shadow me as I photograph a e-session with a real couple.

All the while, you create a seamless photography experience for your clients. Instructional video included describing each step of the questionnaire.
