Crush-worthy wedding photography from Seattle's Jonas Seaman

By on Oct 26th

Jonas rocked this rainy day wedding.

Jonas Seaman is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide!

Fun fact about our sponsor Jonas Seaman: all the ladies in the Offbeat Empire have a collective crush on him, and harass him on a regular basis… or whenever we're all in Seattle together. Ariel asked him to photograph last fall's Offbeat Empire party and invited him to our tiny staff retreat movie night. You know why? Because we totally dig his combination of awesome personality and incredible talent.

So this time we're not going to just gush about Jonas like we have in the past, we're going to highlight his winning combo of personality and talent by featuring his photos AND his words. WARNING: You might just develop your own crush on Jonas Seaman

Oh Jonas… master of amazing moody lighting.

First of all, you should know that as much as we love Jonas, Jonas loves you all even more. (Is this a love triangle?)

I have to say I am so honored to have been welcomed into the Offbeat Bride community the way I have. I love that Offbeat Bride readers have really resonated with my stuff and have put their trust in me to do what I do. I've been able to be a part of so many amazing wedding days, and I am so grateful to have ended up documenting the weddings of so many creative and diverse couples.

Even a New York wedding photographer hired Jonas to shoot her wedding.

It's totally not a wonder to us why y'all have resonated so much with his style. It's totally one-of-a-kind, yet always celebrates the couples' personalities… kind of like your actual weddings.

I approach wedding photography as a photojournalist. Although I like to experiment and have fun when I shoot, I definitely strive for the photos I take to represent the energy and uniqueness of the people I photograph. I strive to capture the individual feeling of the day. I concentrate on the characters, the environment, and the emotions. I know these photos will be viewed and cherished for many decades to come, so for me what is most important is making sure that the story of the day is fully captured and preserved.

I'm also in love with this photo of bride Katrina.

In fact, Offbeat Bride weddings have made up most of his work for the last year. Dude is so busy that he hired his just-as-awesome girlfriend, Mary, to join the biz.

Because of this he's been able to expand to better suit… well… ALL of you!

Now our bookings have gone national! I love to travel and thanks to Offbeat Bride readers Mary and I have been able to shoot all over the Unites States. In the last several months we've documented weddings throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as Montana, Utah, California, and four weddings in New York! We also have a few more upcoming weddings in Kentucky and Mexico!

I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it is for us to be able to travel together to so many different places and be a part of all these truly incredible weddings. And… everyone has been so nice! We've made so many friends now it feels like we have extended family all over the U.S.
