Utah Wedding Photographer: Johnathan Hickerson

I was talking to a friend who just recently got engaged a little while ago about wedding photographers, and I realized that I have been really lucky to interact with a few fantastic wedding photographs more than maybe the average person. When I was getting married I was SO picky about wedding photographers. It took me a long time to find one that I just loved, because a wedding is such a special time, and pictures are the main thing you have after the wedding day; so in my opinion, they're worth spending more, for a photographer whos work you absolutely love. In talking to her about this I thought maybe this would be a good thing to blog about, wedding photographers that I've had to opportunity to meet, see in action, and see their fabulous work. Hopefully it will help someone here locally find an amazing photographer.

Utah is the land of weddings, and so there are a lot of photographers here, and a lot of them that take the same exact picture and don't shoot for originality, and that makes me sad. So here is the first of 4 wedding photographers who I absolutely love their work.

Meet Jonathan Hickerson.

He shot my friend's wedding back in December and man, I was impressed. He hung out with us all day while we set up the reception, and came to the rehearsal dinner, and was so much fun to talk to! I love it when people are interesting, unique, and easy to talk to, and he was definitely one of them. He also shot my friend's new brother-in-law's wedding a month before theirs, out on Catalina Island.
And then he did an even more fabulous job on my friend's wedding. I had never seen his work before, and I was really impressed by the photos that he took! I think his work speaks for itself.
Their wedding was so much fun! In that last picture my hair was falling out, but it's funny because we are talking about how to get those black marks out of shoes, so her shoe is in her hand. That cute little girl was following me around and dancing with me all night. I have no idea who she was, but I had fun dancing with her. I like this picture because I'm talking to the bride, and Hal is in the background talking to the groom. It's wonderful when a good photographer can catch little moments like these.

So, if you're interesting in booking Jonathan Hickerson, here is a link to his website, and a link to his photography facebook page, where you can look at many more pictures of his fabulous work.

Ok, first of all...where have I been? You changed some of the things on your site. Love it! Ok, second...great shots. I love candid pictures, especially those that will remind you of something special...just like the talk you had with the bride etc. Great shot. Haha, and the guys in the back. Just funny! In a good way of course. ;)

Have a good day girl.
